Masks add mystery to the Mardi Gras atmosphere and they intrigue the public when worn. Bead throwing and Mardi Gras can be referred to as a sandwich of inseparable peanut butter and jelly. I am a faithful bead catcher when it comes to my Mardi Gras culture. I make it my top, my most valuable mission to catch as many beads as I can. Purple, gold, and green beads jiggle across my neck, as I bond with my family members, smiling, laughing, enjoying our Mardi Gras culture.
In the zoo animals are frequently around new people so they will not get nervous being around scientists which is more necessary for research. Studies have also shown that research is easier to finish with animals in zoos. Vittana reported, “The modern zoo plays a critical role in education children and families about the different animals with whom we share this planet. Staff from a zoo will travel to local schools to make presentations, offer special programs on the zoo grounds, and partner with community providers to extend educational opportunities to everyone. No matter what a person’s socioeconomic status may be, there is a chance to learn something new because of the work of a zoo.” This statistic indicates that zoos are very important not just to almost extinct
But when a snow day happens, the day that the family was planning to go on that vacation might become a makeup day. E-days, on the other hand, do not make make up days. In fact, one school had to take off an entire spring break in order to make up for the snow days! So, would you rather have one day in the middle of the year off, of sitting and doing nothing, to just have to give up that vacation, or would you want a day out of school, still doing a little work, and not have to make that day up? That is how E-days save vacation days.
Have you ever done something fun with your family? Last summer, I went to Walt Disney World and rode the incredible ride, Test Track with my family. Going on Test Track taught me that it’s more fun to be with your family. To begin, we walked around Epcot for the beginning of the day. We ate at different restaurants and went on fun rides.

She said, “Would you like to go with us to Carowinds Barbaree?” I said yes of course! “Make sure you take off from work.” She told me to start saving my money and we will go two weekends from now.

It was September 21 which meant the short but crazy intense period known as Homecoming season had begun at Lawrence E. Elkins High School. The air was thick with talk of potential dates, potential ways of asking, and potential ways of transportation. I personally thought the whole thing was overrated and overhyped but I was actually buying in this year as I was a senior and this would be final opportunity to be a part of the Homecoming craze and I would go all in I wanted to take part in as many social activities as I could my senior year so I figured Homecoming would be a really good start. I had a circle of guy friends that I hung around regularly consisting of Astle, Reen, Eric, Cole, Michael, and Joel and when we started talked about Homecoming,
This time of felt like a holiday break but I was glad to be back in school. It’s March now and the weather is warming up. But still there’s snow piled up on the sidewalks. Almost a month later and there is still snow. Humans are really powerless before the forces of nature.

Sara has always been excited for high school and boys. As the day goes on Sara start to make new friends in her last hour. The school day is over.
A Gap Year is every seniors dream, because it means a year off from school to explore anything and everything they want to. Malia Obama felt the same way, as she took a gap year before attending Harvard. Where she is “one of 80 to 110 students each year who enter following a gap year,” (Barnds, 44). While a gap year has existed in Europe for a long time, it is just now becoming a regular thing in America. They use that time to take time off from school and responsibly and just live in the moment.
For only $200 I will be able embarking on a guided wildlife tour throughout the Teton Range. This trip is all about the wildlife so I can’t forget to bring my camera along. We will be searching for those famous western mammals in every cowboy movie ever released. I hope to spot bison, moose, eagles, coyotes, and wolves. This will be a great experience to see these animals away from the big screen and away from human civilization.

Dr. Meyers, Hello! I hope your Thanksgiving was rejuvenating and enjoyable with family and friends. This is Angelia (Angel) Hirsch from the summer practicum course through Liberty University. I am not certain what happened over the week of Thanksgiving, but our house (which is a 125 year-old historical home, really a niche market, not many want to deal with the special things that come along with the age and up keep) suddenly went into high demand and we had numerous offers come in on Wednesday! We spent Thanksgiving countering and ultimately getting an agreeable offer.
With many restaurants nationwide to choose from. I really enjoy visiting Chick-fil-A that I visit at least 2 times a month if not weekly. Customer Service is always respectful, attentive and kind- from the moment you walk in, to the employees who walk through the dining area making sure your meal came out right. The food is always freshly hot. My favorite fast food chicken sandwich around.
The Iowa State Fair is the most influential events throughout the state of Iowa during the month of August. This is a place where one can go to experience shows, art, food, and see livestock from all around the country. Most people however, go to this fair simply to have fun. On my visit to the Iowa State Fair in the previous summer, tasting all of the different foods, quality of the rides and the positive attitude from the carnival workers highly encourages me to come back year after year. Depending on what fair you attend, food quality varies from food stand to food stand.
