Today, the weather was very humid and warm outside for mid-October. It was a comfortable temperature outside, so I decided to take my fall jacket off because I did not want to be too hot as I was walking around the market. I’m estimating that it was approximately mid to low 20’s in temperature today, so whenever a breeze arose, it was refreshing because it was pretty warm outside. I decided that today I would take a walk through the dessert sections of the market before going to sit by the outdoor firepit. There were many vendors selling fudge and pastries, so this was something I purchased because I was heading home that afternoon and I thought my family would enjoy these treats. The firepit was not turned on today because it was fairly warm outside, but I still decided to sit in one of the Adirondack chairs surrounding the firepit to take in everything that was happening around me. It was very busy at the market around this time because it was the weekend, and everybody was taking the opportunity to spend time with their families outside on the warm fall day. I also noticed an older man performing a compilation of folk songs on the guitar, and a small group of people huddled around the area listening to him perform. I started to become restless after sitting in the chair for about ten minutes, so I decided to continue walking to one of the buildings at the farmer’s market. Throughout my childhood, my parents would usually take me and my sisters to St. Jacobs Farmers’
As soon as their mom left after saying her goodbyes; giving her hugs and kisses, I knew that summer had officially begun, and the nerves slowly began to settle knowing that I was left in charge of an adorable two month old, a sassy two year old, and a helpful four year old for this hectic summer. Slam, as the door closes. Summers here.
‘Another beautiful day’ Amy thought as she woke up and walked to the window. However, most people think of a beautiful day as sunny and warm. Amy on the other hand, lives in space, and a beautiful day means the stars are shining bright. Amy has been living in space for the past 10 years only with her mom and dad.
Entry: My idea of summer is a break from school that lasts around two and a half months. Summer is a period of time where most teenagers get jobs and many families travel and go on vacation. It is the time of year where the water and air become warmer, and there are vast amounts of people at the beach or in their pools. The memory that best represents my idea of summer was this past summer. Last summer I went on many adventures. I went to multiple concerts and meet and greets to see and sometimes meet my favorite celebrities. My family, my friends, and I spend hours relaxing at the beach and swimming in the pool.We visited the boardwalk , rode all the slides at the water park, we enjoyed riding jet skis, and we played a lot of softball. My family and my best friend Chloe flew down to Disney in Orlando , I went on vacation with my sister's softball team to Ocean City, Maryland, and the last few days of summer we spent in my home in Cape Coral, Florida. While my family and I were in Cape Coral , we drove about six hours to Key West to see the crystal clear water and to explore the area. That summer perfectly represents my idea of summer. Summer is about spending time with family and friends and taking a break from your daily routine , which is exactly what my family did that summer.

As far has holidays go, the Navy likes to celebrate them early to gather everyone together before we each take leave (vacation time). They were throwing a holiday party in early December. I’m new. I want to meet more people. I want to win a prize. So, I buy tickets. Me and a few of my friends are going to go if for no other reason than to maybe win a new xBox. The party itself was fun. We got to see everyone outside of their uniform which may surprise you. I, on the other hand, was less focused on people and more on extending these festivities. One of my friends that I work with invites me to a house party. I walk in the house. There’s music being played off someone’s iPhone, an indoor and outdoor beer pong table, shot glasses sticky with the aftermath of drunk toast with strangers, and a shit ton of people. I find my friend, ECK, and he hugs me with a beer pong ball in his hand. “There’s someone I want to introduce you to.” He guides me towards the couch. “This is Kyle,” he points. I take one look at Kyle and turn into a puddle of mush. He gets up to shake my hand, but I just hug him instead. What can I say…I’m a hugger. We both nervously laugh and I force myself to walk away. People approach me to say hello and catch up on work, but something about our innocent conversations and actually seeing him has me peering over people to see what he’s doing.
Standing under the amiable sun, outside the Queens Library, our old meeting place, I once again checks the time on my phone and clutches my bag anxiously, excited yet the tiny spark of nervousness is undeniable. The lively sidewalks and streets are crowded with people, the busy roads are filled with taxi cabs, metro-buses, and cars going to and from in numerous directions, and the familiar lullaby of the chatters of people and vehicle beeping echos through the city air. Main Street is still the same as I remember it. As I surveys through my surrounding, I caught three familiar faces moving through the masses of people. For a second, I froze, the spark of nervousness gradually turn into a small, burning flame. But then, their searching eyes lands on me and their lips forms into cheerful smiles. Familiar voices calling my name delightfully washes away the flame and a joyful smile made its way up to my lip. Instantly, I run towards my three best friends, Vivian, Noshin, and Angela. We exchanges warm embraces and sweet words of ‘I miss you’ and ‘how have you been’.
It was a warm autumn day the leaves scratching against my window the birds singing a wonderful tune the sun raising making the once dark sky live again, my alarm clock goes off the emptiness of my house no one in here but myself, I take a gander at my clock 7:30
One hot summer’s day in the last week of August, my family and I went camping all the way over in Tennessee. But, every time we go on a trip like this a mystery pops up. But, then again mysteries can also happen when you are not doing anything. So, it was just ordinary camping for now. It was just going to be our family, but Elizabeth decided to invite Daniel Hoffman and Thomas Flipsbargen since their parents were out of town. Ugh! They’re really annoying boys, to me at least. Elizabeth doesn’t think they are annoying, and neither does April or Jamie, who by the way decided to come along as well, so it may just be me. I do get kind of nervous around boys.
“Hooray!” I shouted, I am so excited about today. Why am I so enthusiastic you may ask, because today is the first day of summer vacation.We were on our way to the beach Every year me and my family visit the beach for a whole month. So as you can see there is much to be excited about. As we drove along I could barely wait, I could smell the fresh, salty ocean air. I asked my parents “are we there yet.” They replied with one word, yes! This year in particular is extra exciting because we are going to rent a new beach house. We had arrived as I leapt up out of the car to my dismay the new beach house wasn’t as great as I had anticipated.
As the last of the snow melts from the pale green grass, the sun is beginning to assert itself with more authority each day. It runs its course through the sky, arcing higher and higher towards its apex above. It is spring, and the world is humming with the excitement of new life and warmer weather. There is a faint breeze in the air, bringing the fresh scents of spring to my nostrils. Suddenly I realize with astonishment that, even though I never noticed it, I haven’t been able to smell anything outdoors in several months.
I woke up to the sounds of pans banging and bacon sizzling, and pancakes cooking. It was a gorgeous morning filled with joy and hope, these days are my favorite days. The sun is shining and the wind is blowing calmly. The birds are chirping their happy songs as the sound of kids having little discussions arose in the atmosphere. I was but the smell of bacon and pancakes over through me and got me off my twin size bed full of unorganized soft warming blankets. I walked down the winding stairs to find my little sister banging pans like she was in a band, my mom didn’t like it but i just laughed and smiled.
Throughout my life I have been to many beaches, but a few stand out. The select few that stand out are because of the memories I’ve made there, they are the ones I will never forget. Each beach has its unique value to itself and to me. The one thing all beaches have in common is they are filled with an obscene amount of people, but hold the most memories. Throughout the years, the beach has taught me some lessons of independence, which I will be able to use in the future. Overall, the beach is best spent with friends and family enjoying the water and its transition of a hectic day time to a peaceful nighttime.
An afternoon in Thailand was especially hot and stuffy with the sun out shining and blindingly beaming. We started the day arriving at our destination set up by our tour guides, but unfortunately, I was unable to enter the royal museum in Bangkok. My mood shifted and was irritable and uncomfortable to be waiting outside in the musty polluted air. The reason for the refusing admission would be the apparel that I was wearing was unsuitable to be entering the museum. I had no choice but to stay outside accompanying my mom and aunt also having the same problem. I watched the other tourists and my family approaching the entrance, leaving me behind. However, we were fortunate enough to find a spot in the shade to sit and wait for their return. Surrounding us were shouts from vendors trying to appeal and promote their items to bypassers. Meanwhile, I found it to be intolerable to be sitting with the humid air and insects crawling around us. In the distance I noticed my cousin coming towards us. As well, she was not allowed to enter and had to come back. Feeling bored, my cousin and I decided to wander around the area.
Vacation an extended period of recreation, especially one spent away from home or in traveling. This vacation i'll definitely be far away from home.
