Almost every year, my twin sister, my dad, and I, fly out to Iowa to visit our family. Trips to Iowa were and still are the highlight of my childhood. Everything about it is perfect. The deer with their fawns. The cowboys with their horses.
Stopping on The Way….We stopped in Kansas to stay the night after driving all day. An episode in the Odyssey was when they stopped and some of the men ate lotus flowers which made them not want to go home anymore. This was like us stopping and resting and not wanting to get back up and continue moving. The hunt was starting the next day so we knew we had to get going early. The guys and us two kids got back in the truck to drive to the property in Missouri where we would be hunting.
It looked like the road that you see in a scary movie went you’re driving up to the house where all the bad stuff happened. After a 15-minute drive, there is a convenient store, then across from there another road you can turn into or you can keep going straight. My father stopped at the convenience store; the store looked like a very old store. The outside of the store made me feel like I was outside of a store back in the old west. It looked made out of wood, in the front there were two wooden poles that looked like you would use them to park your horse.
The first main reason i’m a truck lover, is because I could be driving down the road and could go by a truck and I can tell you the model and what kind of truck it is. For example, I was on my way to the store with my dad and I saw a truck and I named the exact model of the truck and my dad drove past it and it was the exact model that i said it was.
Next weekend I am going IA with mom guys. Lake Tahoe is so beautiful and I would go visit again in the future. I also went ski for the first time near Lake Tahoe too. Fortunately, I did not take my car to CA this trip, used a friend 's car, 2014 Volkswagen. The car was alright to drive we switched off but the car did got stuck in ice when we were going uphill to Lake Tahoe (HAHA) luckily we had two big American young boys passing by and helped to push the car out.
This trip to the store was different. I almost got into a car accident! On top of that, I started cursing out the person that almost hit me. I was starting to feel road rage. That’s when I said to myself, “If this next store don’t have them, then you need to take yo ass home because, you’re burning all this gas and you’re about to get your truck tore, up over some damn Twinkies!”
During that time my favorite classes were probably math and chemistry, which is odd because those were my least favorite classes in high school. I would love to work for a magazine once I graduate, and although I talk about moving far away from Arizona passionately and frequently Tucson has begun to grow on me.
On the Thursday of my first week in my new school I was pulled from English class to the office. When I got there I saw my Dad, the principal, and a guidance counselor. A pit opened in my stomach that progressively worsened as I thought of the possibilities. I walked up to my dad and asked what was wrong as he proceeded to tell me “Do you remember
I have been part of the Long Beach Police Explorers since November, 2016. I heard about this program through a friend. I was automatically interested in becoming a Police Explorer when I heard about it because since I was little I have had an interest in law enforcement. I remember my first Wednesday meeting after interviews, I was really nervous the whole week before because I didn’t know what to expect.
Growing up with my dad I went on a lot of hiking, backpacking, and kayaking trips to many different places. It wasn’t really about where we were going because I knew, in my mind, that wherever we were going to go it was going to be beautiful. There was one trip in particular where we were kayaking the Colorado River near Hoover Dam and I remember being amazed by the water, vegetation, and how a mountain goat could be at the very edge of the mountain and not fall off. My first instinct was to “observe the landscape, attending for reasons of [my] own to aspects of its appearance and to sundry goings-on within it” (Basso, 1988, 100). However, looking back now at my experience of the trip, I can still recall how beautiful the nature was, but what
A life changing event that occurred was when I moved from West Virginia to Arizona. Which was a tremendous trip which took about two thousand miles,by driving. On our way to the desert my family and I stopped at campgrounds,resorts was memorable. It provided me with a new aspect of how truly large the world is. While stopping at campgrounds along the road to Arizona I was able to admire the scenes,explore the town metaphorically speaking.
Two years later we moved back up to Oregon but more towards Portland this time. A little while later I my mom told me that I was very good at arguing and that I should be on the debate team. After that I found out that lawyers have a big salary
I receive probation last year and I saw my life flashing before my eyes. I knew if I didn’t put my best foot forward then I would be leaving CMU. So this semester I had to actually study and stay up long hours of the night making sure that everything that went across my professor desk was A work. Some obstacles that hinder me to giving my fullest potential towards my academic career were my social life. As the beginning of the paper I told you that this semester I started to go out more but when I dedicated my time towards my academics, there was always somebody in my ear saying come to this party with me or Come over don 't study come hangout with me.
During the summer of 2015, I had the chance to travel out of California for the very first time. It wasn’t very far but it was still a life-changing event. Ever since I was a little kid, I have always wanted to take part in mission trips because I heard many fascinating stories and the immense impact these trips had. Luckily, I got the chance to join one before my senior year.
Changes sometimes happen so you can learn important life lessons. When something bad happens in your life you tend to think about the negative side. You never think about the positive things because you automatically think it happened to make your life worse. In this essay I’m going to tell you about me moving, meeting my best friend, and going to Mexico and pretty much living there for three months.
