My First Time Snowboarding The first time I’ve ever gone snowboarding at a resort was a lifechanging experience for me. It was the time when I decided that this sport is going to be what I’m going to do, I’ve always wanted to go snowboarding before. I love everything about this
The mountains were tall (11,000 feet +) and covered with bright powdery snow. It was like nothing I had ever seen before. I was eager to set-up camp and prepare for our nine day hunt. But, Dad said that we had to drive around and check out all the good places, just to make sure that we were in
Lane Community College has an opportunity to promote voting in Oregon when approximately a quarter of eligible folks in the state are unregistered. By adding a voter registration function to Lane Community College registrations, physical places to pick up voter registration cards, and providing links to official Oregon state voting information LCC will support students. And, not only will more students participate in elections throughout the state, they will also have funds and time reallocated to campus-specific campaigns that were previously spent on student organization voter registration efforts.
This part of the run is not difficult for me, which is good because my mind is already focused on the cliff that I know is about 100 feet down the ridge and 50 feet on my left (north). Waiting for my turn at the top, I had lots of time to sit and think about what I was about to do, igniting my nerves and adrenaline, making my body feel numb. I ski to my spot above the cliff, and the iconic House Rock looks like it always does, almost like a fifty foot diving board that will shoot you out half-way down the rest of the mountain. I stop right above the point of no return. I must choose to hit the cliff or not. There is no turning back once I move from this spot.
I recently moved to Leesville, Louisiana from Park City, Utah. The college I was attending in Utah, Salt Lake Community College (SLCC), has a much different campus environment than the Northwestern State University (NSU) campus at Leesville. The average enrolled student body of SLCC is around 60,000 each semester. This semester, there are currently 248 students attending the Leesville NSU campus. That’s a big difference.
They walked slow as molasses I swear. Lance saw his dad with their dog and we all walked over with him. We all moved to the back of the line and I kept trying to get my bag back from Frank but he still would not give it back. The line started moving up and before we knew it we were up at the front. The guys started ordering their ice cream and kept trying to make me order some but I kept refusing. They still ordered some for me anyways (little butts) and we went to the side to wait for it to come out.
We left at about 9 o’clock, and were riding around for maybe about a couple hours or so. Then we decided that we were cold and tired and we wanted to go back to Hannah’s. Then we realized that we didn’t quite know how to get back home, because we were lost. Now we had to figure out what to do.
Metro West Learning Academy has been a positive experience for me. It has benefited me in many ways. Metro has helped me handle stress by alleviating it. At first I didn’t want to come to Metro. I was worried about leaving all of my friends but I made some here. And the teachers here have also made it better because of how individualized the program is.
Anyway, going back to when we were kids, sometimes Ken would babysit me and Maddie. He was 14 at the time and no one knew then how unstable he was, my parents thought that they could trust him. The first time that he crossed the line we were outside playing.
Ski Patrol rode up with us coincidentally. When we got of i immediately fell, I wasn't used to riding with only one foot in. About 5 more rides later my brother was ready to ride the lift with me and my friend. I never really found out the kids name I just called him dude and stuff like that, Normal stuff 10 year olds call each other. The third day was really fun, my friend didn't come because he got hurt at the end of the second day. My mom wanted to be able to talk to us while we were on the mountain, so she bought walkie-talkies and earbuds that had microphones on it so that we could talk to each other and me and my brother could tell each other if we got separated or lost. This happened one time he went up the wrong lift without me and i had to find him on my way down. We were getting really good for our first time. We started trying the blues and were going pretty slow. At the end of the weekend it was time to go home. At 4:00 the lifts shut down and we changed into comfortable clothes and drove home. The next morning I was really sore and bruised up from all the falls. We later went back to another resort named Cataloochee. This time I took a friend by the name of
We all woke up that morning early so we could get all packed and ready to go. We had to take two separate cars because of how many people we had to take. The car ride was eccentric and ready to jump out of the car and into the lake at any moment. Finally both of the cars made it to the destination, my parents and my friends parents both rented all of the things we could use for today. Throughout the whole day we used the water bikes, kayaks and paddleboards for how
Lake Explosion It was a normal day I got home and my mom was there. “She told me are you ready?” “I said for what?” She exclaimed “You’re going to Norris Lake!” I was super excited because I was going with my friend from my soccer team Trey. I got packed as fast I can and they picked me up. The only problem was it was 101 degrees and a 8 hour drive. About halfway to the lake we stop at a restaurant and get food. We went to Wendys. After that we would drive and get gas and about 10 minutes before we get there we stop at Walmart and get food for the entire week.
When it comes to school projects, not everyone can come and work together after school
We had been up in the cabin for about two days, it was: my family, cousins and their families, and my grandma and grandpa. My dad and I woke up early that day to go fishing, so we started to go
Once we finally arrived at the resort we were surrounded by cool chilly air and snow, we had an amazing view of the mountains and crisp green pine trees all around us, which was breathtaking. This was also a great opportunity for me to take as many pictures as I could of the amazing mountains around me. Thankfully that day there were no harsh winds and the slopes were not icy yet since this was towards the end of March. In order to get our tickets and find our instructor we had to enter this cabin like building; the bottom floor was where we picked up our tickets and tried on boots, the upstairs they had a dining area where they had delicious hot dogs and cookies.
