The last and final vet clinic that I visited was the Lakeland Vet Clinic, which is located in Manson. With the help of my mom, I had successfully gained a few hours of job shadowing. I was ecstatic but also nervous because I have never personally experienced what the every day life of a vet is really like. On a Monday morning, my mom drove me to the clinic. When we walked in both my mom and I were introduced to Dr. Rich the Assistant Vet.
Importance of Family Why is family so important? A great example of family is from a story I read. In the beginning of “Rema’s Extraordinary Day” started when Rema got dropped off the bus and her mother was nowhere to be seen. In the middle her uncle came and got her. Lastly her mom had a baby.
One warm august night my sister Ellie and I watched the film Into the Wild. The story of Chris McCandless reconnecting with nature and going out on his own was profound to me. My mom was an avid hiker when she was younger and even climbed Mount Olympus, but as she’s gotten older and kids and life have taken over hiking hasn’t been much of priority. After the movie ended I told her I wanted to go on a short backpacking trip by myself before I had to go back to school and immediately my ten year old sister wanted to come with me. I agreed and we spent the next twenty four hours planning, packing and figuring out exactly where we were going.

This past week I flew to Texas with my Mom so we could attend my Grammy’s funeral. It was a very difficult week but once I got down there my friend from kindergarten picked me up so I could get out of the house for a while. Even though I told him I was doing okay, he knew that I was really struggling. I was in such a better mood after spending some time with him that I couldn’t stop thanking him for understanding what I needed. Even though it was hard for me to know that my Grammy had passed away, someone told me that I needed to be excited for her.
Every summer, she would move back to her village, Shaktoolik (population, 300). Sheri once told me that she has so many cousins that if she was going to marry someone it would not be someone in her village because it could be a long distance cousin. I am thankful for all the friends I have met over the years. Meeting new people is always hard but I have learned over the years that sometime all it takes is for someone to say hello. The tension goes away and the friendship begins.
The idea of going to a foreign country grew on me about 10 months ago, when my aunt came back from one of her many humanitarian trips in Senegal. As she told me about all the things she had seen, witnessed and did, I was deeply impressed by her intrepidity and how passionated you could tell she was about helping others.

And so, I started thinking about the possibility of a travel similar to my aunt’s. At first, the idea seemed silly, but as I put more thoughts into it, I realized I really wanted to help the least fortunate the way she had.
It had been a week since I had seen him, and phone calls just weren’t sufficient any longer. The wedding was in Ogden so we stayed with Tamara Simon, a family friend, in Layton.

She just happened to be the missionary that brought my family back to the church
