Memories can be as vivid as the day they occurred. In my opinion, this is truest when it comes to childhood memories. As a child, my parents, my younger siblings, and I went every summer to our cabin on Wabamun Lake, located in Fallis. These are where some of my fondest childhood memories occurred and remain with me to this very day. On these vacations, I spent time with my family, heard my moms memories, saw the town, explored nature, and enjoyed the quiet.
I am currently working on my high school diploma through Penn-Foster, and I am also working on my driver’s license. Starting with my young childhood, I was born in Bloomsburg, PA on December 29, 1994. I think a big part of my love for outdoors started when I was about 6 years old and my grandmother used to take all my cousins, my brother, and I camping. We used to go camping for an entire summer. My gram had a camper that slept 11 people, with a bathroom, 2 full kitchens, one of which was outside, and a shower inside.
She see them at least every two weeks, but tries to see them more often. She calls them each morning to make sure they are ok and make small talk. She stated she has learned to have a good work ethic, good morals, to care for others and be a responsible person from the example her parents set for their children. Nona was raised in Meadowbrook and Bethalto, IL. Nona's dad was a Steelworker, baseball coach for little league, friend to many, he was the person
President Trump used the power of pathos throughout his speech to appeal to the patriotic society of America, and relate to the average American. In turn, introducing the idea of “America first” led to him appealing to ethics (Ethos) by revisiting his accomplishments during his first year in office. Since the beginning of President Trump’s candidacy, he has introduced a newly found sense of patriotism. “If you work hard, if you believe in yourself, if you believe in America, then you can dream anything, you can be anything, and together, we can achieve anything." This quote appeals to pathos, because it relates to a passion found in anyone proud to be American.

I want to get the best grade that I can get so I study as hard as Katie did. I also looked up to my dad as a role model because he is also a hard worker. My dad would wake up early every morning to work out at the YMCA. After working out, he would go to work until five or six o 'clock in the evening. When he had inventory at work at the end of each month, he would come home late at night around eight or nine o 'clock.
My dad’s side is a bit less uniform than half and half. My family and his do not know a lot about his side of the history or the genealogy. Growing up my grandma would just cook family recipes which included pie, hamburgers, and the best macaroni and cheese you could ever have. I see my grandma 's cooking as classic American and Texan food. I have lived in Texas all my life meaning I have celebrated holidays in the same places and ways for nineteen years.
There is something special about tossing a line in the water, kicking your feet back, blasting the radio to your favorite tunes, and leaving all of your worries behind. It is an indescribable feeling. Come summer time, that is exactly what I look forward to the most: living easy, living simply, living in the moment with a fishing pole in my hand. Most of my summers were spent in Ocean City, Maryland, arguably one of the filthiest and grungiest beaches I have ever set foot on. However, this place held a special place in my heart as it was where my father first taught me how to fish.
We get to see our friends and the entire extended family, and there are so many exciting things to see and do in the summer. All of that makes summer my sister’s favourite season, and it really is a fun time for all of us. My siblings and I get to roam and explore and go swimming. My mother also likes it because being with our big family means there are people to assist with the work and other people to talk with; she also gets to see her own brothers and sisters. My father gets to sit with the other men and he doesn’t have to worry about us having enough food for a while.
My swim goggles connect me to my culture which is if you work hard it will pay off. For example, my freshman year I was a no good JV Swimmer, and I worked my butt off and won Rookie of the Year. Now, I am a top swimmer for BMHS of which I am proud. Hard work does pay off. Also, my goggles remind me of waking up every morning at 5 am to swim before school and after school as well.
