Not to mention I have five younger brothers and sisters. I would have to it in the car with them the whole entire trip and they’re very loud. I don’t like being in the car with them for ten minutes, I didn’t know how I was going to survive a whole trip. The day of the trip my mom woke all of us up at six am, I was tired, I was hoping I would get to sleep in since I was on break. She could of told of me I wasn’t, because I was sure cherishing my sleep.
Being only twelve, I felt like I was off to a far away galaxy of some sort, not another state, as the idea of being there for an entire week lingered in my mind. It was my first trip to New Jersey, my first time flying, and more importantly, my first extended stay from home. I was prepared for the journey ahead with the opportunities it held, and staying without my parents would lay down a new path into maturity and independence. My attention was focused on the trip and what was to come of it as I boarded the plane for the four hour flight. After arriving in Parsippany from the airport, we exchanged greetings with our grandmother, picked our rooms, and unpacked our bags, knowing this would
Golden Corral.” We chanted over and over again until we arrived. It was seven o’clock at night, and all we wanted to do was eat as fast as we could and as much as we could to hold us over for the next four and a half hours of our journey that was ahead of us. “We’ll get there eventually.” We spent the rest of the four hours struggling to stay awake, and praying that none of us would vomit from the rancid food we all devoured, movie after movie blasting through the DVD player on the bus. We wanted nothing more than to finally reach our hotel and go to sleep, having suffered the longest and most treacherous journeys that most of us had ever experienced. Finally, at 11:30 at night we arrived at our hotel.
Dad and I went to Cupertino library, but there were no seats. We debated over going to Saratoga, and decided it would be a waste of gas and time. We drove directly to the office where we discussed summer plans and classes in the future. Personally, I don’t think anything productive
The first time I went to Mackinac Island was a truly unforgettable experience. Lots of people have always told me “We can’t go, we can’t fit the wheelchair on the boat.” But during last summer in August we decided to go Mackinaw City instead. I was super excited for it, I don’t why I had been to the city parts a thousand times over. That and I was sick as a dog with an unexplainable cold but that didn’t stop mom from saying “okay we’re going.” So Saturday afternoon we packed ourselves in mom’s Envoy and spent a long two hours in the car. I spent most of the time eating Burger King and throwing snotty Kleenex’s at pedestrians.
As I climbed out the window, the summer night breeze whistled softly throughout the suburbs of La Cañada. I knew that this will be my last time to ever set foot in this city but I felt no emotions of attachment. Soon enough, I was greeted by Lorenzo’s friends, Gratiano and Salarino who were waiting in their car. As soon as we got in, Salarino pressed down on the gas pedal and the car accelerated far into the distance towards Interstate 10. “So you must be Jessica, I’ve hear a lot about you from Lorenzo.” said Gratiano with a peculiar smile.
I full of excitement (Absolute), got to packing as soon as I found out. We got there by driving I believe my parents realized their mistake at about hour two because of hearing "are we almost there" every couple of minutes. We left at night so that we could sleep most of the ride, but I couldn’t, I was so excited. When we finally got there, it was amazing and all I had seen was the hotel room. We stayed in the resort so that things were more continent.
We needed to have fun too. We went to the beach first then, we went to Universal, then Disney World. The car ride was the worst part of this vacation, I got to sit in the front most of the time because of my car sickness. We all pretty much slept the whole way except for my dad, he had to drive. We stopped in Atlanta to spend the night there then we went to Florida.
This Deaf event was very different form every other deaf event that I’ve went to in the past. Let me start of by saying it was a far drive, I drove 28 miles to a place I have never been to, but it was worth the drive. This event was expensive but the reason I chose to go to this event was because it was the only one that fit in with my weekly schedule. As got to the event I was a bit late and everyone had taken their seats and there were no more seats left. But this very nice lady came to my rescue and found me a seat.
The time was about 5:30 p.m we stopped in Indiana to get subway for dinner because we had no food in the house. Once we got subway, I ate it and tried to go to sleep, but I couldn 't because I was too excited and the car was very uncomfortable to sleep in so I went to bed around 10:00 p.m. I woke up the next morning I can’t remember where we were anyways, I woke up around 5:00 a.m our time. I just can’t sleep in cars. We made a few rest stops and before I knew it, we were in Florida!
The ones that haven’t done shit with their lives, the ones that dropped out of school and can barely get hired at Taco Bell, the ones that lurk on social media and sit on their couch to watch Netflix all day every day, the ones that get so fucked up every weekend that they jeopardize their well-being . Now don’t freak out on me, I’m not saying watching Netflix is bad, or being on social media is bad, or any of that. But when that is your whole life? Cmon. Don’t get it twisted, I’m not talking about the people that wake up at 6am, go to work, come home and chill all night.
The next day they still don 't plan on going to Birmingham, they will stay at a rest stop in Knoxville, and then they will drive to Birmingham the following day. During the way there, Wilona is calculating everything from when they eat too every time they stop for a restroom break. he writes it all down in a notebook and titles it “The Watsons Go To Birmingham-1963” Also on the way there, they listen to records and dad turns on the Ultra Glide. Once they finally arrive in Birmingham, Alabama, they start saying how hot it is because they are not use to the hot, they 're more familiar with the cold weather. And also Byron shocks everyone when they arrive, he 's super nice to everyone and does
4) He swore to Ashes he would pay it back by friday and he didn’t make a promise if he knew he would not be able to keep it. In the article it also said, “Thursday night when your mom is out, I’ll give you back what I owe you. No earthquakes, no Martians, no problem.” (Pg. 4) He would be able to pay Ashes back by Thursday without her mom knowing. In conclusion, Ashes took the $200 because it would be paid
It was a wake-up call, not only for us as Americans but for those in many parts of the world (What happened). Before 9/11 we could walk with our loved ones and friends to their gate and watch their planes depart, we could be able to show up minutes before a flight and run tomake, we could carry bottles, and we had no security systems. Now after 9/11 you have to show 1 hour before our flight boards. You needed to have passport to watch planes take off, you cannot have any water bottles, and there is security systems take each person must go thru (9/11
With the sun barely rising, we slept most of the car ride to Tunica, Mississippi. We woke up about an hour before we arrived to our destination. In that hour, we talked, ate Mc. Donalds, and of course jammed out to music. When we arrived at Sam’s Town Casino Hotel, we rushed into the lobby to get our room.
