When I spend time with my family and having fun, I think of how lucky I am to have my Grandpa. The three reasons why veterans means more to me on Veterans Day are my Grandpa, family history, and birthday. My Grandpa because of all that he has been through. Family history because of how one war changed most of my family members’ lives. My birthday because it reminds me of how lucky I am to have my .
“Find your passion and make it happen” - Irene Cara “This one is an easy strikeout bud!” my dad would say. “Ball four! Batter take your walk” the umpire called out. After the game my dad would give me his motivational speech, telling me how much he looks up to me for finding love in the game he loved as a kid. Hoping to cheer me up from a bad inning but it wasn’t just a bad inning; I just didn’t like baseball.
One of the first examples of Rob doing something that needed to be done was him helping their neighbor Ben Tanner’s Cow give birth after skipping school (Peck, 1977). Kids today also help with doing things that need finished. Relating back to the beginning of this paragraph kids today also get summer jobs and they work on every day of the week except for Sunday. Today, if they live out on a
Some families gather together at a specific place every year. Some families eat certain foods…. It is very unique that we all do similar things, and also go our own ways on Thanksgiving. Usually on a Thanksgiving gathering, most people go to a certain location every year. For example, my family goes to my aunt’s church in Lafayette for every Thanksgiving.
In Middle School, I also spent some time volunteering for the PTA, helping with sales and school activities among other things. During the past few summers, I had the opportunity to volunteer at the local zoo, which was interesting and enlightening. Unfortunately, it seems that I never have enough time. Being involved in so many school activities, clubs, bowling and homework, time is a very precious commodity. I do volunteer at Terra from time to time, helping friends with their service projects, and even work a sale or two.
Since I was seven my parents would drive me to Ivoryton, Connecticut each summer. Each year I would see new and old faces. Once we had all settled into our designated tents for either two, four, six or eight weeks we walk around to meet the new campers. All I could hear was laughter and yelling in that moment. Everyone seemed so happy to finally see their friends again after another one hundred eighty days of school.
“Why Thanksgiving is Important to Me” Thanksgiving is important to me because of my family. I get to see my aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. Most of our family lives far away, so it is a great time to see them. I enjoy talking and playing with my cousins. Usually everyone comes to our house the next day to play games, watch movies, and eat more food!
I had a pretty relaxed Thanksgiving Break. On Saturday and Sunday all of my friends were either busy or away so I did not have anything have anything to do. I just watched T.V. and chilled out both days. Except on Saturday night the Coronado High School boys were playing their most important game of the year, so my family and went and cheered them on.
Give back to them for all of their hard toil. Being a child of immigrant parents makes you appreciate life so much because everyday it’s an opportunity to be the best you can be to make everyone around you proud. My parents can’t got back to school and get an education so being able to see me succeed is worth their hard work. My parents have taught me to never give up. I know that some doors may be closed on me but that doesn’t mean other doors won’t open.
And a leader does not let themselves down just because my school did not choose me as a nominee I did not give up I proceeded and well I got nominated by my summer job Where I worked in the courthouse. I believe this shows how I can persevere and always tried to overcome the obstacle for me. I remember the night I got home and i open my computer to see my email and I see an email from Posse saying that I was nominated I was so happy I could not stop smiling.I remember the email telling me that I was nominated for the Posse scholarship because Emily my organiser for my summer job saw good leadership skills with me and she wanted me to do my best with the posse and to never give up. The posse interview was one of the many things that students can go to and gain inspiration from it they teach you valuable lessons. Seeing the difference faces, different ethnicities made me happy because It was not just one race, but many and all of them were leaders in many different ways.But when I was there my stomach was rumbling but not because I was hungry, but because I was nervous So I did not pass to the second round, but I was not disappointed because i mae not have passed, but the posse interview made me realise many stuff and it actually gave me even more skills to keep trying to make them
We can find many opportunities to volunteer right here in the communities of Sioux County. In Hawarden, there is a Community Food Pantry that is held in a church once or twice a month that could use volunteers. This stops the injustice of our neighbors going without food. There is also a Community Supper held every month by another church in town. While this might not look like a justice seeking opportunity at first glance, it can be a big factor in bringing love and friendship into someone’s life.
This was one of the happiest days of my life because I knew in the future I would reflect back on my experience and think to myself I made it this far with so many complications that I know I can overcome anything life would throw at me. Although I did not graduate with honor society or one of the highest grades I still have the satisfaction of having my diploma and knowing I overcame all my failures in middle school. I’m proud to say thank you to my teacher who never let me down and always told me I can do it because of her I showed her my effort was more than
My winter break was spent traveling and bonding with my family. My brother and I attended my teens run practice every morning during winter break. During Christmas eve, my uncle took me down to Los Angeles to visit my family and tour the city. We spent one week there before coming back to Modesto for New years. On New Years eve I had a ten mile race which my father went to support me, after the race we spent quality time together.
If I wasn’t playing baseball I was mowing, or I was helping clean out an apartment. By the end of baseball I believe I played 70 or more. I had a lot of fun playing baseball with the people I am grateful enough to call my teammates and friends. I’m actually not done with baseball yet because I am doing an ongoing baseball camp at Augustana that continues for multiple weeks during September. I got to go to Denver for a vacation.
They were saddened by George not going to the same school but at least they knew he will do fine at the school he would be going to. Then, all three boys got to see each other again because they were working in the same area. I was also joyful because Carla helped Rameck and Sam financially. They were having trouble but she was there to help them grow even more.
