Two weeks before going to a Boy Scout camp, Camp Emerald Bay, in July of 2016 I had to complete the PADI prerequisites to be able to acquire my PADI scuba diver certificate. After flying down to California with my troop and my longtime friend, Brendan, we got to Camp Emerald Bay on Catalina Island. I have never really been that big into boy scouts I’ve only stayed with it for so long to obtain my Eagle Scout but I’ve always loved going to the summer camps every year. This year I was especially excited because it would be first time going scuba diving, also this wasn’t a normal boy scout camp for me as I didn’t have to stay in the same cabin as my troop which was really a blessing for me.
One day on May 2nd 1920, I Matt winiker went on a boat ride to unmarked territory with my two brothers. The last thing I remember is that on June 1st my boat crashed somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. Now I am stranded on this damp, wet, muddy, island looking for my brothers. All I have now is a machete and a flare gun.
Grew up in a rural area a tiny place named Bird Cove, no roads nor electricity until in the 50th. Gasoline lamps lighted up the darkness of our homes. Wood stoves kept bodies warm during the day and at night. Kept the hungry belly filled to content because families were able to cook daily meals on the
Hello, thank you for taking the time to view my resume, I have recently moved to Ontario and Iam eager to discover this amazing province. I have lived in several countries including: England, Spain and Brazil; I am now a permanent resident of Canada with dual citizenship; Brazil and Spain. I can speak and write fluently in both English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Spanish. Due to multiple living locations I have developed my sense and respect for different cultures, religions and way of life, creating an ability to adapt to many situations; by developing scenarios where, "thinking on your feet", being innovative, compassionate, empathetic and dedicated as well as, having a thirst for knowledge and understanding are thriving
Driving along Lake Place seems like any other classic neighborhood street unless you are searching for the Purcell-Cutts house. I almost drove right past it at it is set back quite aways from the street. The house makes a statement but a subtle one, as it hides itself a bit behind the neighbors and almost has its own constructed ceiling plane with the long horizontal roofs. The first thing anyone would notice about the house is the tall slender, vertical windows that seems to span what looks like the whole front of the house. The windows are stained glass and contain the most intricate of designs.
It was December 7, 1941 in Honolulu Hawaii, It was a hot humid day. Charles and his girlfriend Darlene thought it would be a good day to go on a picnic. Charles had the day off ,but had to come back at four for the ceremony at the harbor. Darlene was fine with that because she had to go to work at the hospital at four thirty anyway. The day before Charles and his friends, Timmy, Richard, and Noah were all talking about how beautiful the hawaii beaches are, “Charles why don't you take Darlene on a picnic or something”?
“Dad, can we, can we, can we?” that is what my brother and I have been asking our dad for the past two days that our family has been the lake house. I’m not just talking about my parents and my brother and I, I mean the whole Sauer family, Uncle Craig, Uncle Shane, Grandma, Grandpa, our cousins Lexine, Cassidy, and molly. Yeah, the whole Sauer family, but that’s not important.
Natashia Apangchan Canadian Identity As an immigrant, and of the 7 years that I’ve stayed here in Canada, I’ve come to know some of the Canadian identity. I have lots on mind but the things that stand out the most is that Canadians are so patriotic and generous, and diverse. To me, I see the Canadians as patriotic because their love for their country is very strong. I have seen the pride in their eyes when they say that they are Canadian.
Lake Cumberland is a best-loved place to go for vacation mostly because of all the memories created there, but my favorite trip there was when we went camping this past summer. Since summer was ending and there was a three day weekend, my family decided to camp at the lake. Friday after school my mom, dad, sister and I drove down to Kentucky with the boat and stayed at a hotel, so the next day it would only take about an hour and a half to get to the dock. That hour and a half is a lot better than six hours from our house! Once we got down to the dock, we payed and took everything out of the truck and put it in the boat, then everyone but my dad had to get in the boat and my dad backed it down the ramp.
Since I have moved to Toronto, if I have made any accidental eye contact with strangers it would make me really uncomfortable. I understand staring is impolite but with a simple greet, “Hello or good morning” or even a smile, from where I come from is courteous or friendly. Needless to say, Toronto is the complete opposite. On a day-to-day basis, my daily commute involves a 5-minute walk to the coffee shop then I would take the bus to the subway station, on my way to school.
Over Seas One afternoon, five years ago, my life changed. After eight years of hoping and praying that the agency would pick us to be the next family to migrate and get the chance to build a better, happier life. We were given the opportunity to live in the United States and my family could not have been happier; Their smiles were bigger than the galaxy itself and their eyes had stars in them, glowing brighter than the sun. Everything was perfect, everybody was happy and we were ready to begin a new chapter of our life as a family. Even though everything was going according to plan' we still can't hide the fact that we are leaving our family and friends behind.
An event that has influenced me greatly has definitely been the mission trips I partake in every summer. I've went on one each summer starting in 2015, in which i hope to continue this for many more years. Throughout the many trips I've taken, I have learned that everyone deserves the same amount of help and respect. You never know just how far the little acts you do can go for others. My first trip was to Virginia Beach, I first thought that it would be all fun and games.
