This summer I had so much fun doing outdoor activities. On a birthday trip to Pigeon Forge, TN, with my family, we did a ropes course, went zip lining, and went rafting. Doing all those activities in one day filled me with excitement and fear at the same time. At the end of the day, I was tired but happy! In the early morning, we left our hotel in Pigeon Forge to drive to the area where we would be doing all three activities.
Many think as a lifeguard you are all on your own, but in this case we had to knit together to save a live just like John Winthrop quoted. Teens from all over the county like Fort Chiswell, Rural Retreat, and Wytheville come to lifeguard at the local Wytheville Community Center. We are from different schools, different atmospheres, and have totally different personalizes, but when the time comes we all unite as one unique team. Coming together is the first thing to do when becoming a team. Diversity can bring a whole new perspective to any tricky situation and brings many great minds together.
In the story he talks about how strange it is that you can remember a lot whenever you allow your mind to go back to that state. He then goes on to talk about the lake and how it was cool and motionless. This happens all the time in my life, when I was younger my grandparents would take me to Lake Michigan everytime we went to see them. I am able to think about all the sandcastles we would build and the pretty sunset we would see as the day was winding down. It brought back lots of memories visiting them and being able to spend that time with them.
Water is the most abundant source of life on this planet. Not only did the first living beings emerge from its depths, but it possesses the ability to keep every living thing alive. Powerful as it is, water takes on whole new meanings in Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower. In this novel, the journal entries of Lauren Olamina tell her story as she, literally and figuratively, navigates the world around her. The dystopian America Lauren lives in is practically void of a reliable source of water, especially in Lauren’s case as she lives in southern California, an area known for its long periods of drought.
All of us were amazed of how beautiful and how tropical themed it was. After that we decided to go kayaking for a little bit to the Indian key, Were the indians lived during the civil war. We kayaked and kayaked and kayaked until we got there and docked our boats to the side of the island. Trees everywhere and
I had never attempted to ride a bike before so I was extremely nervous. My dad wanted to make sure I was prepared. On the day of my birthday, I was given safety gear first. Without any hesitation I told him thank you. I was excited to know I was going to see my new bike next.
I went on the ASL Club’s trip to Gallaudet this year. Though we had to meet early, I was very excited to experience a new place that had a culture all its own. The trip up to Gallaudet was uneventful, but the moment we arrived on campus, everything interesting. The campus was absolutely beautiful and I wanted to explore it. Before we toured the campus, we went to get food.
The road to glory started in Pierre, South Dakota. Where Berent, Cael, Trevor, Xavier, and I drove up to play for the state cup. The rest of the team was with their parents but we decided to carpool to save money. We were all joking around until we figured out that we were going to play the older tempo team, Tempo Blaze. At first, we thought that this would be a sweep, that we would win the whole tournament without worrying, but know we have to play the team that has never lost this year and we have never beaten for as
Eton and I joked about completing the challenge in less than thirty minutes. Eton was a cabin mate, but that’s not why I chose him to do this challenge with me. No, Eton was an accomplished paddler; likely, a bit more accomplished than me. I was determined not to let him down. The Villison was a long-standing tradition at Camp Ahmek.
One of our leaders said we could go out and do slalom skiing while he and one other kid packed up the camp site. I rode in the boat and watched because my legs and arms were exhausted. After that we came back to the camp site and started to help the leaders pack
