When we got there we were al starving, so we went to the lake mcdonald lodge for dinner. After dinner we decided to go on a family walk to see some animals. On our walk i was amazed on how beautiful the park was, although i was only seeing alittle bit of it. I realized that the rest of the park could be 100 times more beautiful. Once we finished our walk, we headed back to the tent to
The most beautiful thing I have seen is Hemlock Cliffs. I love going there in the summer and winter because it is always beautiful to go explore and find new caves, waterfalls, and paths. In the summer if you go there, there are many sites to see and adventure in! My dad and I are the only ones who usually go, so we don’t go in many caves, but when we do, they are amazing! Hemlock Cliffs has many paths to venture off in, so you want to stay with an adult the whole time.
Without a doubt attending North Carolina Governor 's School West has had the greatest impact on my thinking. I was privileged to join a few hundred of the brightest minds of my age in Winston-Salem, North Carolina for a six week experience away from outside influence. This immersion was especially life altering because of how open-minded everyone was to new perspectives. This truly created an environment of learning and expression in addition to being a major liberation from my everyday life as I had to be truly independent while on Salem College’s campus. I attended as a choral ensemble student, but was able to experience so much more in addition to choir.
There was water shooting and pouring from every direction I could see from. The names of these attractions were called Treasure Island and Lil’ Kahuna Waterworks. It had many mini slides that were thrilling in a way. Winnie and I did an obstacle that was impossible for most of us. Lily-pad like floating objects that was tied to a metal chain at the bottom of the pool.
It 's a different place anyone would love to visit, living in my own place with the swimming pool and all the plants and flowers around like it 's a wonderful nature. Meeting a friend for sure changed my life. His name was James. We always stood for each other and we never let each other down. After living together in the same house for so long, we accidently came up with an idea that we should start our own business together.
Warm, sunny Destin is like Heaven on earth. This last summer I got a chance to visit Destin for summer vacation. Yes, the 16 hour drive was not super fun, but it was TOTALLY worth it in the end. I had a ton of fun. We spent most days relaxing on the beach, but we also went to this huge amusement park called the track.
My Mom and I spent four days canoeing in the lakes,camping in our tents and swimming in the river . We took all of our clothes,food and tents with us. We had to tie our food at the top of a tree and pull it up with a rope because bears would eat our food if it was too close to the ground. We also had plastic containers called “ Bear Barrels” that are supposed to be bear resistant . I went swimming in the water and I climbed on a rock that was three times as big as me that felt very sharp on my hands.
It's hard to explain, but I felt fear and happiness at the same time when this happened. I didn't let the fear get me though, I played and gave it my all. After the game ended, I was ecstatic. Now I'm on my third year of playing water polo and I have no regrets. Not only am I playing a sport I love, but I've made life long friends with all my teammates.
At the begging of the next year Ambassadors goes on a retreat together up in the mountains where we really start to bond together. A huge reason as to why we bond so closely is because of one activity we do at the end of the 1st day during that
They knew he did not have a father, or his family did not have any money. It was never spoken of until one particular Thursday when the teacher went around the classroom, and asked each individual how much would their daddy be giving to the Community Chest. She asked everyone except for Gregory, and I am most certain that he was ashamed at that point. You can tell in his reaction, “What is it now? You forgot me?” Gregory exclaimed (167).
I reminisce on the many summers that I did not return home for summer vacations. I would work at Little Lake and on the weekends the students would sit outside relaxing and listening to music from Lisa Magee portable 8-track player. The generosity of the staff and how they loved us was a big deal to me. Uncle Paul (The cook) had so much trust in my
It was manna from Heaven. After browsing the University website, my mother and I knew we had to visit. We attended an ACCESS event last fall and like the leaves fell to the ground, I fell in love. All of the students were so kind and welcoming, and they all seemed very dedicated to their walks with Christ. Over the course of the few
I am truly grateful for my experiences at Rutgers. Not only have I been able to meet and build close relationships with a variety of people from different backgrounds, but I also met people from my own background which I don’t often do. I think what amazes me the most is how much I can relate to my friends who are of a different background than me. It is great feeling being able to relate to one another through personal experiences despite the difference in how we were raised up and our practices at home. However, what I appreciate the most is those very differences in our cultures because it great opportunity for me and a friend to learn from one another.
