I was in complete shock from when I was told I could chose a destination until the flight and hotels were paid for. I was still in shock when we were at the Portland airport about to board the plane. I remember being so tired because it was quite early but also thrilled at the same time. I remember walking down the jet-way just looking at Rylie; neither of us could stop smiling. I had to do everything to hold back from screaming in excitement.
I have always thought of going to kings island until i was told i was going to go this summer. When i was told i was going to kings island i was so excited, i had never been to an amusement park or anything like kings island. I was told i had to go to bed really early because if i didn 't i would be really tired, because you have to walk around a lot at kings island and it is a huge park. It took about two hours to get to the park which seemed to take forever but we finally made it there. I had never been on a real roller coaster before so my brother chris figured it would be better if we started off with the wooden rides and work our way up and also we had fastlane passes which let you practically cut the whole line, but we rode all the wooden rides first, the first one i rode was the adventure express which was really cool.
I believe hard work and a strong work ethic to be imperative in achieving success and finding genuine happiness. While it may cause stress and pain in the short term, obtaining the ability to push through and overcome obstacles that every person faces in life leads to long term happiness and success. Growing up, I moved several times, and as a result I have faced multiple uncomfortable, difficult situations. Therefore, I have grown in character, leaving positive impacts on my relationships, school work, athletics, and more. Specifically, I improved immensely in cross country this last season, a sport I thoroughly enjoy and am extremely dedicated to.
I spend half of my life here and spend the other half there. The plane is going down, I’m here. Here to explore my new life in a new country called the United States, and a new language to master. It has been a long plane ride from China to America, but I’m finally here, here to stay with my parents. The plane had landed.
Although we only stayed in Queens for half a year when I was still seven, it has always been a place where I consider special and unforgettable. My trip to Bronx, New York last summer was a very remarkable experience for both my sisters and I. We traveled to different places and did many activities that we have never went or done before while living in Queens. The thought of reaching New York was so tantalizing that I began to feel a little worried and nervous. It was an endless six hours trip, and every minute seemed like hours as we kept on looking out the airplane window constantly; but after what seemed like eternity, we
I never imagined us picking up everything and leaving to relocate to another town. My emotions were getting the best of me, a lot was going through my young mind. As we were pulling off I remembered all the fun times I had with my friends and family in that house. I was moving 100 miles away from all of that, confused about what will lie ahead for the future. Driving down
With no doubts, multiple people face with events that have significant meanings for them and there are many experiences that bring drastic turnings on the long life road. For me, this turning was made when I was told that my government chose to study in the United State Of America instead of the United Kingdom where I previously applied to study. Though enough time has passed, I remember this day like it was just yesterday. The feeling of excitement because of the upcoming journey was mixing with uncertainty and fear. Realizing that I will be in the country where currently I have no relatives and friends was more than frightening for me.
I wanted to stay in New York City so badly that all but one of the colleges I applied to during my senior year were within three hours of Manhattan. All but the one I ultimately chose, Minerva, a liberal arts university where undergraduates live and learn in seven cities around the globe. I had always fantasized about travelling the world — who doesn’t? At the same time, I wasn’t a seasoned global traveller like some of my Minerva classmates were even before they came to Minerva. Though I had briefly visited Europe, taken a two-week bus tour to Toronto with my family, and flown back to China every few years to visit relatives, I had never really felt at home anywhere but New York.

The whirring of the airplane motors diminished. As soon as the seatbelt sign was off, passengers became energetic, and it was official. My peers and I had landed in Washington D.C. I had lived in Washington before, eight years ago and I was seven when we left. My young self didn't expect that when I returned, I would be entering the most exciting, story-filled years in people’s lives, my teens.
