My favorite place to go to is the beach. I just love the ocean. I want to buy a beach house and then rent it out to people until I retire. When I retire, I would like to move into my beach house. The money I got from renting it out I am going to save
One of the most difficult things I have ever experienced is moving to Idaho before my junior year of high school from Utah. Despite this being a common occurrence for people it was hard for me because it uprooted me from the community I had lived in for the past seven years, and the people I loved. It caused me to leave friends that I grew up with and that I couldn’t imagine leaving. And forced me to meet new friends and discover a new place. As I have had time to reflect on my experiences it causes me to realize that it doesn’t matter where you are, or the people you know, but how you react in the situation. The fact that I had to leave my best friends was hard, but the people I have met in Idaho and the experiences I have had since moving have made up for the difficult transition.
This story takes place last summer in the month of July, about one week. My family and I went on a trip out west. Our final destination was in South Dakota. We left on a monday morning and I remember my mom was trying to get me up and they almost left without me. Everyone packed their bags in the car but when I was about to put mine in the car I was informed that there was no more room and it had to get tied to the roof. My dad eventually tied it down and off we went. After being in the car for over three hours my little cousin Maddie had to use the bathroom and I was really hungry.
Visiting to a state that I have always wanted to go is to visit Colorado with my family; therefore, it was fun while going to that place. This happened last years’ summer. There are a few things that we did in that state. So before we went to Colorado, we had to drive from one state to another. Like we first drove from Illinois, our state, to Iowa. We had to stop in Iowa for many reasons. Our family had to stop to using bathrooms, we also stop and to get gas because we drove on the highway, and sometimes we do have to stop and get some food and drinks because we’re always hungry and thirsty; and after we do those stuffs, it’s time to get back onto the highway.

I was born in Texas and live here now, though moved around a lot when I was young. I had been to eight different schools by the time I graduated. For some reason or another, every few years my family had to move somewhere else for a promotion or a bigger opportunity. Aside from just moving to a different suburb, When I was 11, my Dad was promoted and we moved to Wyoming. Friends aside, it 's just a cold and un-interesting place. Not much else to say. Thankfully, two years ago we moved back to Texas and I don 't miss Wyoming one bit. As for now, I recently graduated high school and am in college for the first time. In terms of aspirations, I 'm especially creative and enjoy drawing, graphic design, and other artsy hobbies of the like.
Moving to Kansas was a big change in my life. At the end of the school year of 2011, four weeks before the last day of school we went on the eight hour road trip to Newton, Kansas. It was exciting. Getting a new place to live, a new home. Change is good, well mostly good. In Colorado we had a nice old house with a big backyard, and a huge hill to go sledding on in the winter. Life was good. Our school was a Charter school which I didn’t like because we had to wear uniforms. Our school was just down the hill and it took less than five minutes to get there because of traffic, there was a intersection right at the bottom of the hill. Which is just about the worst place to put an intersection.
I worked for goodwill. They contract out to other businesses to help disabled, special needs an felons. Sometimes it is hard for certain people in life to get jobs. It is called Rock-Tenn, they recycle trash. They ran the trash down a conveyor belt. Sometimes it felt like the line was going 80 miles an hour. I had too get four different items: #1 plastic jugs, mainly hard plastic items. There was a bend in front of me an that is where the plastic went. #2 Is paper I had a bend on the right side of me for it. #3 card board the bend for that was behind me. #4 was trash I had two trash cans on the left side of me. I would have too get big pieces of metal, alumina , an sometimes pieces of a car would come through. I believe I most enjoyed it because
However, my main motives are its mountainous ecosystem, convenient but quiet location, and compatibility with my hobbies and career ideas. Truthfully, I am especially attracted by its mountain location. I love the beach, yet I also truly love the mountains. I believe that I could be perfectly content living up in the north, and so I hope that one day I can own a ranch on the outskirts of Frisco, Colorado. I can still remember the cool mountain air and the glittering aspen trees that dot the slopes of the Rocky Mountains, even though it has been several years. I happen to be only fourteen, and therefore my opinions are probably subject to change in the several years before I head to college, but for the moment Colorado remains the one place in the world I would love to live the
Jim was a friend I used to hang out with back when I was in middle school. He was a decent companion to me, and since I was new to the school, he made me feel like I wasn 't the only one. We would play basketball and play his Nintendo at whenever I would go to his house after school. He was slightly tall, so when we played basketball, he would generally give a good old fashioned thumping to me on the court. He was taller than I was so I could not block any of his shots. Behind the basketball player, however, was a genuinely modest fellow who never would say anything to offend me. He would constantly chuckle. However it was kind of fake, as though there was something underneath. Jim experienced childhood in Colorado, back in the mountains, and
I started my life in Idaho right after I had moved from Colorado. I had only moved to Idaho because my family had lived here and my mom didn’t want to be living away from them. In Colorado I had lived with my mom and aunt. It was just us three till we had moved. After our move we lived with my grandma and my two uncles, as my mom being the oldest she had to take care for five people. Me, my aunt, my two uncles and my grandma. After a while my mom had decided to move to Idaho and live on her own with me. After a while me and my mom were living together she had decided to have another kid and that other kid ended up being a boy, and she had him May 12th 2009. At first I was happy but then annoyed because he had all the attention and I was less
On my way down to Eastman, Wisconsin to pick up my step-child. I left home at four A.M. I the morning. As I crossed the inter-state in Tomah, Wisconsin. I notice my engine roaring like a lion up the hills and purring like a kitten down the other side. leaving so early in the morning it was very dark out yet. Eastman is about 2 hours southeast as the crow fly 's. I got to Eastman about six A.M. The sun was just peaking over the hills of Eastman as I arrived to the house to pick up Jayme . As I drove down the driveway the shadows in the valley started filling in by the sun. The color of the lushes green grass was becoming very apparent. Jayme poked his head out the door. "Come on jay," I said, "I have class at ten A.M." We
The day was finally here, I was ready. I had all my bags packed ready to go on a new journey of riding a bus for 27 hours to Washington D.C for a Citizenship Washington Focus trip though 4-H. I said goodbye to my mom at the Grainery and hopped into the large van with many other strangers who I will soon realize will become my “family” for the next ten days. As we drove on the interstate we had to stop at Brookings to pick up another passenger before completing the short trip in a van to Sioux Falls. Once we arrived at Sioux Falls we had the chance to eat at Deny’s. Once everyone was done eating everyone in the van picked up our bags and headed to the charter bus which would become our “home” for the next ten days. It was finally time to leave
The question so often pondered by the youth of this nation is our goal in life, what we plan on accomplishing and how we will do it. The goal of my education is to better the life of myself and those of others through the accomplishments I make as a young scholar. I plan on attending a four year college and playing a sport, after my first education I will be hoping to attend a doctorate program specializing in pharmacy. Through my education I hope to work at a pharmaceutical lab creating new medicines in the hope of saving people 's lives.
Growing up in Fairbanks Alaska, exposed me to winter experiences such as watching the Northern lights while bathing in hot springs at -50°F temperatures, remote ski-in cabin camping, as well as dog mushing with my friend Tekla – the daughter of four time Iditarod winner Susan Butcher. In the Alaskan summer, I enjoyed 24-hours of daylight, viewing wildlife while hiking in Denali National Park, halibut and salmon fishing, and helicopter trips up to Eagle glacier for ski training on snow in the summer. I also traveled to Sweden and Norway for a month to ski train during 9th grade and traveled back to Sweden to represent the U.S. in ski races after being selected to the J1 ski team (top six U.S. under 18 skiers).
