We stood in that line like a million years. This line was for check in so the security can see if you are legally coming inside of the country. After that line we had to go get our bags when we first walk into this big space first the I see were these humongous fans, It's like the fans were blowing wind at you that was going 100 MPH. When we found our bags we had to walk for a little to find our bus so it can take use to the hotel. When we found our bus it was like this big coach bus and the seats were soooooo comfortable.
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.
The rough, yet warm seat covers rub against your back. You can smell the brisk spring air; it reminds you of the morning dew, frost, and the wind on your cheeks. The ride to INL (Idaho National Laboratory) is full of new experiences—both for your senses and your mind. Your head is still foggy due to lack of sleep it underwent. When the bus pulls finally pulls into INL’s parking lot, loads of adrenaline-filled girls step off and onto the gravel ground.
The flight arrives on schedule at 6:05am at Aeroporto Internacional de São Paulo. My luggage is ready to be picked up in no time at all. I buy two cans of coke in the exit area before I look out for the bus stop. A rental car is a luxury I cannot afford. I have been told by the travel agent that the bus network is well developed in most parts of the area, so I'm confident to get along without a car.
So, me, my boyfriend Shawn, his sister and her friend wanted to ride the rip roarin rapids. Unfortunately, the line was too long so we just proceeded to go to Starbucks and got a vanilla bean Frappuccino and left. We did not get back to Winston until real late, that night. This was a day I will never forget. I had so much fun with all of them.
On one Friday morning, I woke up with an abundance of excitement I screamed, “Today is the day!” Then I hopped out of bed, threw my school uniform on and headed to school. At lunch my friend Madeline asked, “are you and Jake meeting up at voodoo?”. Jake was this guy that I had a huge crush on he was tall, handsome, and funny. I replied to her question by saying, “hopefully”. While driving home from school, I could not believe that I was finally going to Voodoo music and arts festival.
The traffic was insane and their were about a hundred cars going in all directions, but with the assistance of my uncles everyone and everything was loaded up successfully almost like we had rehearsed it. After getting out of the hectic traffic my uncle turned toward us and said “!Bienvenidos a México!” we all smiled and moments later I was fast asleep. I woke up to more honking horns as the car parked next to the curb as we exited the van and entered my aunts house where we set down our luggage and greeted everyone with big hugs. We did not stay too long because we wanted to make sure we said our hellos to everyone else before the end of the
Life in Ethiopia When most people think of Ethiopia as poor country. I remember when I moved here people thought it was cool to meet an Ethiopian girl. I moved to Waco, TX when was 15. I attended to Waco high school and I was very nervous because I spoke only few English. On the first day of class we introduce ourselves and we told the teacher where we were from.
We pulled out of the neighborhood and into the streets of Orlando, my mom leading the way. Our house is only 15 minutes away from the park; that made this more exciting because we did not have to wait too much longer. We drove the seemingly prolonged journey for approximately 10 minutes when my mom screams out, “S**t! I forgot the tickets!” Those of us in the car with her were startled at her sudden outburst and once we realized what she was yelling about, we all moaned and groaned in disbelief and sorrow for the loss of time this just caused us. She called the people in the other cars, told them the news, and we all turned around to head back to our residence.
Do people really change? Going back to 2014, I was in grade 10 and I just changed schools. In my old school, I was always the excellent student and I was known for my good grades. That’s why I was really upset about changing schools. It was an immense adjustment for me as this was the first time that I transferred to a new school.
Goodman and a few others had decided that they would go to the mall and pick up some well needed snacks at the mall. Upon pulling out of the baseball team 's practice field parking lot, John Goodman and his best friend, Jesse Johnson, were too impatient to wait on the semi truck to pass before bolting out onto the slick wet pavement. The tires of Jesse’s sparkling blue corvette lost traction which caused the tires to spin. The entire team watched as the monstrous semi truck plowed into Jesse’s
When she finally climbs into the cab of the pickup, copious amounts of mud cover her shoeless feet, her red crepe blouse had bled onto her white, flowing, ankle length skirt, and her long, wavy, grayish blonde hair is a mess of sopping tangles. She shuts the door then turns to her friend and says, “That me funnier than those fancy rides at the County Fair. Lord have mercy, Estelle Louis, I wants to be thanking you a heap for fixing that there window. I was gonna have it fixed buts never gots around to it.” “I be fixing it or I be drowning, ain’t no two ways about it. Clemmy Sue, imma thinking, maybe we ought not be going to Ruby’s tonight.
Huggies or Luv’s I was walking through the baby section at Wal-mart and it brought back memories of the last two summers with my two year old twin niece Bailey and nephew Dakota. I keep Bailey and Dakota during the summer because they live two hours away and I don’t get to see them very often. Bailey and Dakota are hyper and very energetic. They like to run like wild banshees when allowed to play outside. Dakota loves playing in the mud, dirt, and sand with his trucks.
My friend Josh had this bright idea to drink a whole half a bottle of brown liquor by himself! All of them are like lit before 3:00. So the day goes on and we usually end up at the “Strip” at night. Usually we find our own way to the Strip but this particular year Mrs. Christie was nice enough to take us to the Strip. So we all pack up in the “church van”; all my friends are high, drunk, and everything else and we head to the Strip.
I am so excited to be starting at Conn. Only a few more days until the 24th! I cannot say I am not nervous, however. It will be a completely new environment for me in so many different ways. I live in a massive city, but have always gone to comparatively small schools; my graduating class had just 80 students in it. I hope I can adjust quickly, and make the absolute most out of my time at Conn. Over the summer I was asked to read Silent Spring by Rachel Carson, and may I say I have not read such a compelling narrative in a very long time.
