Living in both Northern and Southern Idaho all my life, it is sad to think how unaware I was of Idaho's remarkable land and history. "Idaho" by A.B. Guthrie opened my eyes and excellently portrayed Idaho as a beautiful and special place. In the beginning, Guthrie introduced the diverse landscapes that Idaho has to offer. From mountains to plains to volcanoes to glaciers, it helped paint the picture of Idaho's diverse land. In addition, I like how the author included the contrasting aspects of Northern and Southern Idaho. Showing how the North is known for the miners and loggers whereas the South is more known for the farmers and orchardists. Finally, I thought that the history Guthrie included about Idaho sealed the deal on how stunning the
My hometown is Atlanta Georgia. I was born in Atlanta Georgia and I am grateful to have been able to have grown up in here. Atlanta is a very important city in Georgia because it is the capital city of the State and it is the most populated. The city was first named after Governor Lumpkins young daughter in 1837 named "Marthasville", but was changed by the chief engineer of the Georgia Railroad to "Atlanta". Right now I am living in my hometown and I wish to live here for the rest of my life.
It began with a small town and a small house. Until about 12 years of age I lived an average kids childhood in Alfred, Maine. Everyone was kind, I had birthday parties, friends were always over, I loved sports, especially basketball. Most of all, I was comfortable. At the time, I never realized what, or how lucky I was.
I think one of the reasons that me and my mom moved around so much was because of my mom and dad's divorce when I was five. The first school I went to was Marshal Elementary in Arizona but not even a year after starting there my mom decided to move to Oregon so I finished my first grade year at Meadowlark Elementary in eugene. once I had finished my first grade year my mom decided that I should learn spanish so she sent me to a spanish immersion school called called Buena Vista. But during the summer of my second grade year my mom found us some new roommates so we moved in with them then we all ended up moving to Camp Creek. I spent my third grade year at Camp Creek. during my third grade year my mom fought my dad for custody over me. When my mom own custody over me my time with my dad was cut down to about a fourth of what it was before. I
My birth took place in Mar del Plata, Argentina, into a family of six including myself. Years passed, my mother gave birth to a girl and was pregnant soon after to another. My father, a strong laboring mechanic decided that it was time he moved his three boys and soon to be three girls from the home he literally built with his bare hands alone, to another country with grander opportunities, not for himself, but for his six children. He decided that with the money that cost him years of tireless work and stress he could only afford passage for himself. He set off for the United States and for months he worked day in and day out, any job he could get his hands on. He paid for our flight and had a modest, dainty apartment awaiting our arrival.
I was born in a big city called Baltimore, MD, but raised in a small town called Saint Stephen, SC. My mother had to relocate in order to take care of my ailing great-grandfather. While working toward her
When I was about 11 years old I moved to Canton Michigan from Las Vegas Nevada. It was a dramatic change in my life. Not only is it quite a distance from Nevada. But there was also a different outcome that were made from the people to the weather and not being able to see my dad anymore.
When talking about where I’m from it is hard to say exactly where or what as I am an Army brat, meaning I have moved to and lived in many places. I was born in Alabama and spent the longest time In Kennesaw where I live now but up until I moved to Kennesaw I didn’t stay anywhere for too long. For the most part, I welcomed the moving from place to place. I saw each move as an opportunity to see a new place and meet new people. Not everywhere I went was the best, but I always looked forward to every move.
I really can’t tell what the future will be like only time can. Although I believe America will thrive in the future. With ever evolving technology and science and our thirst for knowledge we will strive for more advancements to become the most advanced country. It’s all a race for that and I firmly believe America will lead the race. America is a great country. Full of life and peaceful beings. America is a strong country that is only getting stronger as we grow and become more knowledgeable. America has always been a great and strong ever since the very first colonist arrived. And since that time we’ve only grown stronger and bigger.
I was born in Warner Robins, Georgia but, since I am a military brat I have live multiple places mostly in the south. After my dad retired from the Airforce I was raised in Kennesaw Georgia where we still live now. I have one older brother who is studying to become a music producer and also was fortunate enough of being raised by two amazing parents. My father, who retired from
I was just a small town girl living in Grants, New Mexico. There is a saying that if you blink you will miss it driving down the highway. I was born and raised in Milan; it was just a little portion of Grants. My entire mom’s side of the family lived close by us and my dad’s side of the family was in Espanola, except for my grandma Yolie my dad’s mom. I grew up knowing almost everyone in that small town. The challenge in living in Grants was there were no available jobs. My parents had to drive back and forth to and from Albuquerque. As I was in kindergarten through second grade I would stay at my auntie’s house early in the morning or with my grandma while both my parents were in Albuquerque. Family was everything to me or at least what I
In 2009 my family and I moved from Chicago to Dubuque. I was 6 years old when we moved to Dubuque and it has really help me to be who I am today. My family and I packed up our bags and got on the road to Dubuque. The reason we moved to Dubuque was because of my dad's work. My dad works at Bodine Electric Company as an accountant. I would say it was a really emotional move but I was only six and I probably didn’t really care. When we got to Dubuque we checked into the Grand Harbor hotel/waterpark where my sister and I had some fun in the water, after that we looked at some houses and eventually chose the one I'm still living in today.
