Every year we went to my real grandma's house so nothing was going to change this year. I thought everything out and my mom and I would go to my grandma’s house on Christmas eve stay there till Christmas day then leave that night. That way I could be back the next day. This Christmas eve the procrastination was strong and I saved all my wrapping for that day so we did all the wrapping and proceed to go to grandmas house. Long car ride puts me to sleep so I fell asleep on the way up
Snow days are special in the eyes of children. When they happen to children in Ohio, we may take it for granted as we are near-guaranteed to have a few every year. To children in warmer regions, snow days are extraordinary. David Sedaris captures this feeling in his short story, “Let It Snow.” The plot follows the mind of a fifth grade Sedaris and his struggle with his mother, his parents’ marriage, and her idea to lock Sedaris outside with his siblings. People of all ages are uneasy when it comes to talking about parts of their lives they are not particularly proud of, or do not fully understand.
As I wake up from a cold and delightful sleep my eyes filled with joy as I woke up to a snow filled backyard. I jumped out of bed got dressed and basically jumped off my porch into the soft powder snow. As more schools are switching to e - days less and less kids will be able to enjoy the fresh Pow - Pow of the fresh fallen snow. E days have been argued for a long time whether or not to have it. E dya are basically doing work on the computer from home when school is cancelled because of the heavy Pow - Pow that has fallen.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Ms. Procrastinator I remember when I was in elementary school, I had a project to do. We had to make a family tree and then it was going to be displayed outside the classroom for everyone in the school to see. Now what would have been best for me to do is get right on my project. But knowing me, I waited literally til the day it was due to tell my mom I had to make a family tree in my class. Even though she was probably furiated I waited all this time, she helped me with my family tree anyways.
There were red and green lights glimmering around the house, family members smiling, and mounds of gifts underneath the tree just waiting to be ripped open by my little hands. When I was around four years old, my parents wanted to surprise me with a special gift, which made that Christmas one to remember. I almost forgot that I had more gifts to unwrap because I was focused on discovering what my parents made me. I was not allowed to know what the special present was until Christmas day, no matter how many times I begged them to tell me. When I woke up Christmas morning, I was beaming with excitement, but I was still groggy like a bear waking up from hibernation.
I was so little, I couldn’t keep myself up I had help. For a 6-year-old, the lesson I was taught that day had no impact on me until now at the age of 16. I have never stepped foot on the ice again until one day, I was in the car with my mother running errands in Long Island. While listening to Christmas music, I began to think about Rockefeller Center. The beautiful, small ice skating rink I had always seen in movies and the grand Christmas tree lit up for all to see.
It was December 2002 and I went to Washington for winter break. I was visiting my older sister and her husband, who at the time lived in Whidbey Island, WA. I was 13 years old. My teachers didn’t assign any homework or reading assignments for my class while on winter vacation; it was truly the most wonderful time of the year. I was excited to spend my vacation hanging out with my sister, playing in the snow, and exploring this new place.
What sparked my interest in the environment, and nature in general was getting lost while on a family hike when I was seven. While my parents consider it a horrible family memory, I found enjoyment in spending time in the calmness of the wilderness around me. When I came to college it was almost inevitable that I would study environmental science, but I was too intrigued by all aspects of science to know what I truly had a passion for. This quickly changed during a lab my first semester of college. For the lab we were sent out to record the amount the types of trees in forested parts of campus.
