There have been numerous amounts of important events throughout American history, from settlements to famous wars, many of them are worth traveling back in time and viewing in person for. If I were given an opportunity to time travel and witness one of these events in person, I would choose to visit the origins of the new world, in Jamestown, Virginia. It began on May 14, 1607, when roughly 100 men who had left England landed on a narrow peninsula in the James River, where they would live out their lives in Jamestown. The settlement had a variety of attractions which pulls me into wanting to time travel to see it, one including watching the settlements first leader, Captain John Smith in action. Another thing that catches my attention is the way that Jamestown was built and its location.
Last summer my family took a trip to Gold Beach. While we were there we went to Jerry’s River Jets. Jerry’s River Jets is a company that takes people on tours up the rogue river on a massive boat. These aren 't the type of tour you bring your grandmother on. Their fast paced, super fun, and exciting.
1. My life experiences just happened to lead me to social work by chance; I believe it was meant to happen, however. After I got my GED when I was 18, I was left with the question: what now? Do I decide to try college, or go to work? My mother tried to go to college at Ball State, but she barely finished a year before she decided it wasn’t for her.
When I Went To Florida I went to Florida after 4th grade in the summer. When we went to Florida, Jaxon my sisters, brother came with us. The night before we left he stayed at my house. When we left the next morning we left at 3:00 A.M. While we were on our way we both had to sit in the very back of the car because my sisters came with us. The ride there was not fun at all.
The sun was setting over the calm bay waters. We could hear the waves breaking on the shore and the bugs chirping. The smell of salt water filled the air. The temperature could not have been better. This is what we drove 13 hours for.
Being born and raised in Florida it was evident that I was going to experience some beautiful nature as a child. It never really occurred to me though how important nature is and how much of an affect it can have on a person. When I was younger my family used to travel down to the Florida Keys every summer to go fishing and snorkeling. I would look forward to this trip every summer because the drive down to the Keys enabled us to see all of Florida and that was always my favorite part. As I got into my teens though and started playing more sports my summers soon became filled with traveling around the state playing sports rather than fishing and snorkeling down in the keys.
For the past five years I have attended Mission Arlington with my youth group during spring break. Mission Arlington is a organization that helps the needy and helps to improve the lives of citizens in their community. Every year they host a Rainbow Express where church groups from many different states come together to teach bible stories, memory verses, sing songs, eat snacks and play games at local apartments. Through this the main goal is to spread Christianity by telling people of all ages about Jesus. They also help provide needed materials to members of the community.
It was finally the day I got to see my mom after two whole months. She moved to Florida to find a house down there so I could move down with her. For two months it was basically misery. I have never been two weeks without her, let alone 2 months. I was heartbroken and she was too.
One chilly night in late November as my family and I were eating dinner, my mom and dad told my sister and I they had very exciting news. I couldn’t image what it could’ve been. A pet dog? A trip to California? I had no clue!
It was a nice start to a cold winter morning just when I got out of bed, I knew that this missions trip was going to be amazing but I did not know that it would change my life forever. It all started after my sister came back from a missions trip from Mexico, that I got the burning desire inside to go and help out and maybe even one day become a missionary. Once she was home though she told me all these wonderful stories of how she had helped out people with things like fix broken houses, paint the church's, but also she told me about how she got to know herself more and fix some of her bad habits and behaviors that she did not even know she had. That is what really inspired me to go on this missions trip, but prior to heading off to Mexico,
