The Need for Speed! Another week has passed and it’s Friday again, I thought to myself, leaving work early that day. For about a month now, I have planned this trip to Denver, to take my daughter Jordynn to her softball tournament. A lot of time and preparation has gone into it, and finally the day has arrived. I was filled with excitement and couldn’t wait to get home to pick her up and get on the road.
Imagine being a little opening that new Barbie Doll present you had been waiting for a year. Totally, the feeling I got when our car pulled up in front of that blue and white house on Berry Gordy (Grand) Boulevard in Detroit, Michigan, last Spring. From the parking lot I could see the line was extremely long, but I really didn’t care because my only thought was getting to that front door. While waiting in line some of the people waiting along with us started what I would describe as a mini concert out on the sidewalk singing The Marvelettes “Mr. Postman” and attempting the dance moves that made them famous it was amazing!
The family lives in a small hotel. Rex Walls develops a winning method for blackjack and buys everyone vests, cowboy hats and numerous dinners out, the most fun to everyone was in an old west themed restaurant which tops off the evening with a flaming ice cream cake. This method was discovered by the casino staff the next day and the family had to move and get out of town. The family then moved
In Chapter 19 when Beah goes to the pub we are shown the first glimpse of music in the community after the war. Beah even meets a girl named Zainab, but is not able to continue their relationship as she would, "ask to many questions." (Beah 184). And finally during Beah's trip to New York City for the UN conference, Beah and fifty six other children, "[sang] a chant [they] had come up with, they [they] [sang]; [they] then cried...laughed...[and] danced." (Beah 199) in celebration of their successes and healing.
At five in the morning, my father rolled up in front of my tasteless high school to drop me off for a weekend getaway to Virginia Beach with my beloved band and orchestra. My charismatic friends bolted towards the sight of my father’s silver Buick as I sprung out to wearily, yet excitedly, drag myself into the band room of the unsanitary construction zone, better known as Wethersfield High School. I strode to the ivory room to get my glossy, wooden, semi-professional clarinet, and my light blue monstrosity of a suitcase. Once I retrieved my things, I made my way outside to see the golden sun rising over the horizon, turning the violet sky into a brilliant light blue, to be embraced by the scent of crisp, clean spring air. The forty degree May weather didn’t phase anyone as the plethora of instrumental students began to gather in front of the school in long sleeved t shirts, jeans, and light jackets.
2. Tonight for Halloween, me and some friends are going over to one of my friend’s houses to watch scary movies. I am riding home with Laney after school and the other people will get there around 4:00 pm. Laney is really good at special effects makeup, so she is going to do some on all of us for fun.
During the day, the heat builds up on your skin as the salty wet sweats drips off. You walk up and down the main strip which is where you see the majority of the odd ducklings out there. However, during the evening is when it gets dark and people go crazy, get excited, and their adrenaline builds up. My brother and I sit at the candy shop bar, right smack dab in the middle of the main strip. We walk down there from our hotel at about 11:30 to see the real people who live for the late night in Vegas times with their friends.
Darting through the long, bright hallway, I laughed outrageously with my friends while trying to get to the noisy, yellow buses. It was April __ and the students at Southern Nash Middle were finally being released from all classes. Everyone was extremely ecstatic because we out for a week for spring break. As we loaded upon the bus, everyone jumped in their seats and began talking about their plans for the week. I talked to my friends who sat across from me and listened to them talk on and on.
What Memorial Day means to me Kids today in the 21st century think Memorial day as a day off from school to play video games and drink a nice cold cola, but it means way more than that. Memorial Day is a day that we celebrate for all the men and women that have passed away fighting for our country. Many will celebrate in different ways. Like having parties and visiting relatives One way people will celebrate is by watching the Indianapolis 500 the day before Memorial Day. Before the race veterans will walk the track with the American flag.Then the race starts.
Within the next hour, my family will be on the road to Disneyworld! It is not my first time going to Disneyworld, however, it is my first time in four years. I am so excited that I am the first one completely packed and ready to go. As I sit on the tan leather couch in my living room, waiting for my parents and siblings, I imagine walking down the crowded streets of Disneyworld. I hear the children’s laughter, as well as the Disney music that is being played.
Jessica Stevens and her four friends walked down the passenger steps - their portable suitcases rolling behind them - which led to the concrete runway. She and her friends had won an online contest that had an all expenses paid trip to New Zealand to see the film-set of the Shire - or, more specifically Hobbiton - for a prize. They had just finished their one day and two hour flight from New York, and would’ve been very tired, except they were all mega-fans of Tolkien’s works, and were very excited to be there. The five adults were soon on the concrete, rolling their luggage to the airport where a jeep would take them to Matamata, where Hobbiton was located. It took them a while to actually get to the airport on foot; and it seemed even longer because the weather was especially cold and blustery.
The bus ride to the Amherst meet was just like any other that season. We were listening to music, talking, and joking about how much we were going to lose by. For so far in my rookie year we had lost every race. We walked the course before the race, but no one was really paying attention, we were still thinking about last night’s spaghetti supper. Carbo-loading before a meet while playing football and sitting by the fire had long been a tradition for our team.
On April 15th of 2017 at 1 o’clock P.M., I decided to travel to the Lloyd Noble Center at 2900 S. Jenkins, in Norman, Oklahoma to attend the 103rd annual American Indian Student Association (AISA) Spring Powwow. The weather was great, was about 80˚, partly cloudy with a cool breeze. Walking around trying to find the lady I was supposed to be interviewing, I occasionally would catch the smell of food (popcorn, pretzels, and hot dogs, and Indian Taco’s), as well as, seeing several tables where one can buy hand crafted gifts. I attended this event, because I have always been very intrigued with the history of the Native American people; from the culture, regalia’s and their religion. I met with Shelby Mata the organizer of the event to get a better
I was uncertain will I ever be able to make him proud and receive that love that I always dream about. Nov 22nd 2010, it was Dad’s birthday we had very sophisticated dinner that night, but it suddenly changed. Dad called me in his room and asked me about a paper lying on his desk. It was my drawing that I did in graffiti class at school. My heart was beating fast.
It happened on our road trip this summer at Six Flags in Colorado. My cousins and I made a deal that we had to try every ride they suggested at least once. Now, this sounded like a superb deal to me for I am always up for a daring adventure and how bad could it be, they are just rides. I remember how brimful the place was, it felt like I was at black Friday with all of the parents hustling and bustling around with arms filled with shopping bags or I was at a high school party because the profuse number of high schoolers was endless or perhaps I was at preschool with
