One summer day my friend, family, and I traveled to Carowinds.sAs we embarked on our vacation, we soon discovered that the trip was extremely lengthy. Upon arrival at the park, we heard the shouting of the kids as they were enjoying the rides.cx After entering the park we darted towards the largest roller coaster there. The first problem we encountered was our fear of riding roller coasters.cdWe began to feel the thrill as we went down the first ramp and no longer had fear. The best part about the whole day was experiencing the thrill as you enjoyed the ride. Finally, we ended the day by eating out and traveling home.
HONK! BEEP! SQUEAKK! Every which way of me, cars are honking and breaks are squeaking but I don’t care because I see it, the best amusement park ever… Cedar Point! For the longest time had I been asking to go here, the day has finally came.
The transition from childhood to adulthood occurs when an individual is able to recognize the impact he or she can leave upon their community, gaining life skills doing so. An accomplishment that marked my transition from childhood to adulthood, would be best demonstrated by the process and completion of a leadership responsibility when I performed my Eagle Scout Project. I joined the scouting program when I was very young, and have been very active since ever. Becoming an Eagle Scout has many challenges that a young Boy Scout must undertake, including the completion of a community-based project, which is an important step in obtaining this notable rank. The Eagle Scout Project is designed for the scout to learn different leadership responsibilities. The project allows the scout to have practice with difficult situations to give the young man experience in life lessons. My community-based project was
I am a pioneer! My pioneer story isn’t your average Latter Day Saint pioneer story, as far as historical LDS stories go! I was raised by goodly parents, I was born and raised in Spokane Washington. I am the youngest of three children born to Jim and Shannon Newell. My brother James is the oldest and four years older than myself. My sister Kim is the pickle in the middle and the peacemaker, she is just two years older. Growing up my brother and I had a love-hate relationship, we enjoyed driving each other crazy. As for Kim and I, we have always shared a close relationship. Kim is the sister every sibling should have, she was never mean or hateful, she is the sister that I don’t deserve.
Visiting to a state that I have always wanted to go is to visit Colorado with my family; therefore, it was fun while going to that place. This happened last years’ summer. There are a few things that we did in that state. So before we went to Colorado, we had to drive from one state to another. Like we first drove from Illinois, our state, to Iowa. We had to stop in Iowa for many reasons. Our family had to stop to using bathrooms, we also stop and to get gas because we drove on the highway, and sometimes we do have to stop and get some food and drinks because we’re always hungry and thirsty; and after we do those stuffs, it’s time to get back onto the highway.
While trying to find a topic to research and write about, I attempted to comb my brain in search of my greatest passions. Ideas such as sports, trucks, and politics stood out as potentials, but I quickly discarded the collection in favor of my more hotly burning passion: duck hunting. Ducks dominate my thoughts and dreams in an overwhelming fashion. The pursuit of waterfowl has influenced my life in a myriad of ways, such as impacting my college choices, affecting how I spend my time, and dictating how I budget my money. Even my Christmas gifts revolved around the sport as I received numerous pieces of equipment designed to aid my endeavors chasing the aquatic game birds. Diving ducks in particular seemed highlighted as my
The day was cold and gray, no sun. In a place called, Yukon Trail, Alaska, it was fifty degrees below zero. The begging start with a man that decides to take a walk, the time passed and he meets a dog. He thought he would make it back on time because he is meeting with his friends. That was the begging of the story, but neither of them knew what would actually happen.
My dad had always told me stories about going to Baxter State Park. How good the fishing is and all the wildlife that is there. He had been there a few times and he’s climbed Mt. Katahdin before. He knows where all the ponds and rivers are like they are in his back pocket. After listening to all of my dad’s stories of Baxter, I was just itching to go.
I am grateful for having had the opportunity to learn and grow at Keystone in the addictions field. The staff has been patient and helpful as I have gained much knowledge as I worked through my master’s program. There are not words to express the gratitude I have for everyone and all that they have done for me this last year, not only, professionally, but also, personally through my journey at Keystone.
My parents always said that we will go to Disney World when Jack was eight. Well now he is eight and we still haven't went yet. I was mad at first because they said we would go when Jack was eight but we didn't. Well technically we did go when he was eight because we went a couple of weeks before he turned nine. See Jack's birthday and my birthday are in the same month. My birthday is 17 days before Jack's is. Mine is on May 1st and his is on the 18th.
I was standing there at the edge of a fifty foot tall cliff petrified with anxiety and fear. This wasn't a stupid attempt at suicide, rather a stupid attempt at having fun before summer inevitably comes. I knew my summer already wasn't going to be fun, I signed up for algebra 2 summer school classes. So I and a few friends decided we would go to Maunawili Falls a 6 mile hike to a waterfall with a 50 foot cliff. It took us 2 hours of being covered in sweat, going through bushes, up and down hills overrun by mosquitoes to get there. Once I got to the waterfall I immediately dropped my stuff at a nearby boulder and began climbing up a slope leading to the cliff. Being ahead of all my friends up the slope, I could feel my heartbeat beating harder as every step went by while simultaneously thinking "if I turn back now it'll be easier to go down the hill". But eventually I made it to the top, with the first thing that I saw was a
The class is still going on. I was asked by Sergio and John to cut the class back to only the US VPs. The short answer that was given to me was to cut travel cost and expenses. Sergio asked me to make plans to go to Mexico and Canada to work with Howard and Roberto and share the lessons learned during the April meeting. I also told Sergio about the idea about going to Woodcliff Lake to present to you and Jill the WoW presentation, and he agreed to that idea.
Today, I woke up with a scratchy throat. My nose was no longer clogged up, but I still felt sick. I fell back to sleep for another 2 hours. In the end, I rolled out of bed around eleven in the morning. Mom already went to work, and dad said he wanted to eat dim sum for brunch. We drove to the dim sum place, but there were way too many people. We settled on Yoshinoya in the end. I ordered orange chicken for the first time, but the flavors conflicted, so I beef next time. Dad and I went to Cupertino library, but there were no seats. We debated over going to Saratoga, and decided it would be a waste of gas and time. We drove directly to the office where we discussed summer plans and classes in the future. Personally, I don’t think anything productive
I am really thankful that you were able to meet with me on such short notice. It was also great to talk about the personality test results and learn how much a person fluctuates between the different characteristics. Other than that, I was surprised to see you at Jai Wolf and I hope you had as much fun as I
I visited by the campus police office here at AUM and I learned a lot of information that I did not know previously. I found out that university police department was a part of the Office of Public Safety. I had always thought they were separate and not together. I also learned that there is an AUM Crisis Assessment Team on campus and this team is here to protect us from people who pose a threat to other people on campus. I leaned that the officers here are certified police officers. At first I thought they were just security guards, but they are real police officers. They also told me that they have campus police members who can serve as safety escort just in case someone does not feel safe and they are available 24 hours a day, seven days
