In my life ive had lots of memorable events , but the most unforgettable one was my graduation trip to Cancun Mexico. when I first found out I was going to this trip I thought it would be so easy as in just get up and go, but no this trip took tons of planing, the most important part of this trip was getting my passport that took about five weeks to arrive, once I received my passport then I was able to start booking my flight, that's when the excitement started,then I booked my hotel. I took care of all the important things then I started looking into placing and things I would be visiting such as beaches,water parks, entertainment shows,shopping centers,restaurants,etc The day arrived off we go to Cancun my boyfriend,friends and I, We got to the airport early that morning went thought security then we grabbed are tickets found are gate number then took a sit while we wait for the plane
It’s the largest parade in the Ark-La-Tex area. It takes place 10 days before Fat Tuesdays. The Aseana spring festival is a festival of different Asian culture in the country. Each year the festival celebrates one Asian culture in particular and this year on April 2nd Shreveport celebrated the Laotian culture. The highland jazz and blues festival is an annual music and arts event that is held on the second Saturday of November at a city park in the historic Highland neighborhood.
We had been on a flight for about three hours, and I was very scared, because that was my first time on a plane. We were sightseeing in Arizona for a day or two, taking pictures and shopping around the local stores, looking for cool stuff to bring home for our families. The day after, we were supposed to take a van for a 12 hour trip to Puerto Penasco, to the Penasco del Sol Hotel. That
I’ve had numerous crucible moments in my life, but by far the most life changing was a temperate June night, when my brother threw a party. I arrived home from school at 7:00 sharp like i do every week day. I was bombarded by countless seniors setting up tents in the backyard, and clearing out furniture in the family room. Mom and Dad were on vacation which gave me a vague idea of what was beginning.
Okay about the sunset I had saw...I was on the way to Indianapolis. I had woke up from sleeping and I saw it. I am glad that I had woke up then or else I would of not gotten to see it. We had left home about 5:00 a.m and it takes us about 3 hours to get there and about at 7:43 we had saw it.
All but the one I ultimately chose, Minerva, a liberal arts university where undergraduates live and learn in seven cities around the globe. I had always fantasized about travelling the world — who doesn’t? At the same time, I wasn’t a seasoned global traveller like some of my Minerva classmates were even before they came to Minerva. Though I had briefly visited Europe, taken a two-week bus tour to Toronto with my family, and flown back to China every few years to visit relatives, I had never really felt at home anywhere but New York. The feeling of stepping foot in a completely
My Woodstock journey started about three days before the festival was set to begin. A couple of my friends, myself included, heard a promotion for Woodstock on the radio and one day later we decided to pack our bags and hit the road. It was roughly a two hour drive from New York City, where I was living at the time. There we started a week we would never forget.
It happened on June 11, 2015. My lacrosse team won our regional quarter final game the previous day—I scored my personal best of five goals and was named Player of the Game. As a reward for the win, my coach gave us a three hour practice the next day that was strictly conditioning—leaving the seniors 30 minutes to go home, shower, change, and drive to our Senior Dinner at Bowdoin College. I raced home from practice, my sweat sticking to the car leather seats, music blasting, and the wind in my hair. I had the future on my mind: playoffs, graduation, summer, and college.
It was really surprising at first by all this. Summer time is undoubtedly the best time You wake up to see the sun already up and it doesn’t set till after you go to bed. So even if you work late till 5 pm, you still have about 5 hours to have fun in the sun. Picnicking is practically a way of life here. The Swedes even have celebrations like Midsummer’s Eve and August Crayfish parties just to celebrate the sun.
We were a close family everyone talked very often, we would drive hours to see each other because most of our family lived in Franklin. I would go spend summers with my aunt and family that lived in Franklin. Whenever I was about 6 I didn’t know what the word Cancer meant, all I knew was that it was often said and it would make my family very emotional.
Today was a big day for me, probably one of the most important, also concluding that it was the first time I had arrived in New France. At 7:30 a.m., us passengers were let of this grand ship that took us all the way from France to New France! Even though it had taken me more than 3 months, I was glad to start a new life in this new territory. As we got of the ship, I immediately smelled fresh air that I haven’t in a long time. I recall my mom saying “good luck with your new journey!”
Ever since I was born, my family has moved five times, and at each city that we move to, my family and I live there for at most four years. Then we pack up and move once again to another city. I currently reside in the wonderful city of San Jose, whose history is very vivid and exciting, being the very first civilian settlement in California to becoming the site of the first state capital to the third most-populated city in the state. Founded on November 29, 1777 by José Joaquín Moraga, who named the place El Pueblo de San Jose de Guadalupe, the city of San Jose was destined to become one of the greatest cities in the nation. Before José Joaquín Moraga actually travelled to the place to build the city of San Jose, there was another group
For over two years I have been blessed to be involved in teaching young children. When I had begun to help at Kids Zone it quickly changed into a transitional period. The administrator, Melissa Cooke, moved to Michigan six months after I had started helping and so it was being run temporarily by the Fisher family for a few months. Unfortunately when Melissa left, the entirety of the volunteer staff stopped volunteering. It was up to the Fisher family and I, five unqualified people to lead the Kids Zone program every week.
I was born in New Orleans, but raised in Brooklyn. For several reasons my parents decided to leave NOLA shorty after my birth. From then on, I was raised in New York state; more specifically Brooklyn. It wasn't until the age of sixteen that I finally returned to my home city. My parents had just divorced and for that reason, my mother no longer wished to stay in New York.
“I’m here because I love New Orleans.” Although I can not personally resonate, the graduating class of Tulane University certainty can to this statement because they too share a love for New Orleans. By expressing her love, Ellen is trying to connect with her audience on a personal level. Because she says this towards the beginning of her speech, the audience becomes fully engaged making them want to hear what else she has to say.
