Growing up in the same city for just about your whole life gets you accustomed to the same routine everyday. You know where you're going, you see all too familiar faces, and life just seems so bland. That was my case. I've lived in San Antonio for all my seventeen years of life, and have always wanted a sense of venture. However, when the summer of my Junior year came around, that completely changed. Being involved with my high school theatre company has given me many amazing opportunities, one of them occurring every year around November, when my troupe and I attend the Texas Thespian Festival. The festival takes place in Dallas and since it's a state festival, countless schools from across Texas travel to the fabulous Omni hotel and not
Do you remember when you were a kid, there was that one place that always seemed so amazing, but once you got there you were so disappointed? When you are a kid, a disappointment like that seems to be a big deal. Well when I moved to Texas, it was just that. The worst place I have ever tried living, was in Bethel, Texas. There are numerous reasons that make me say this including, the excessive oil drilling, how spread out each town is, and how god awfully ugly it was. I would never recommend going there. I moved there, and within a month, I came back home. Even if I think of it as a Vacation, it still was a horrible experience.
The United States of America shares common borders with Mexico by four of her major States: California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. These borders serve as critical point of binational relationship between these two countries and have brought out numerous issues relating to environmental pollution, trade, and commerce, influx of immigrants, drug interdiction, health related issues and human rights.

I did not know anybody. The closest person that I knew was a six hour drive away, not even in the same state as me. The day that I moved to Texas was the day that I left my sense of security behind – everything I had ever known was
My mind will often wander to all the places I've lived in and all those I would love to travel to, or visit again. I think of the streets of Santa Fe, how fresh it would be compared to the over 100 degree temperature of were I am now, the
I was born in El Paso, Texas to Mexican immigrant parents who did their best to raise me and my three siblings. Growing up in El Paso I never even saw myself applying to college, but then my dad made a bold choice to start a career in homeland security
The types of soils found in the state of Texas vary over a wide range. Research done by the Natural Resources Conservation service indicated that there are approximately over 1300 different types of soils that can be located in the State of Texas. All of these soil types each play a different role in how it affects the foundation of structures. However, this wide range of soil types, has been shrunk down to fit into nine groups of Taxonomy to help make it easier for identification and research (Vepraskas et al., 26). In this essay, I shall discuss the different types of soils that can be located in Texas according to their respective taxonomic group.
In the story of Samson, his strength lies within his hair. That's sort of case for my story if you think pounding your fist on the floor in a fit of rage and spazzing your head to deal with pain “strength.” So my story begins in high school of junior year on Go Texan day of 2016. My school is a private school and it shouldn’t be shocking that my school has dress codes for uniforms and hair to keep the list short.
The main theme of this week is about figuring out how people live in Texas and how different to live in various locations. Therefore, I have already done the survey of 3 different Texans who speak perfectly Standard English and found out there are some similarities and differences. First, the people who live in big cities such as Austin and Dallas don’t have so many names for the bugs in the grass. Second, the people live in suburb region rarely hear or use the phrase “fixing to or I’m fixing to go to town.” Third, all of the participants have no solid definition for the sour milk. Last but not least, people who live in big city rate the place they live as “excellent” comparing to other areas.
This is a fictional story which takes place fifty years ago. At the same time, the story still possesses some factual information. The year was 1963 and I was on a mission to become the next President of the United States of America. The President at the time was Mr. Kennedy but I was going to change all of that very soon. I was trying to figure out how in the world I was going to go from Florida (where I lived at the time) to Texas (where Mr. Kennedy was going to be giving a speech) to meet up with the President. When I was brainstorming ideas for the trip, I saw a big truck that said in big red letters on the top “Going to Texas”. I hopped on the back of the truck and rode my way across the country. As I was on the truck, I realized that I needed some kind of a weapon to shoot at the President.
Two years ago in fifth grade was a great year until one something happened, something that was not going to make the year better, but make the year worse. I was sitting in my room watching TV when mom yells from the living room, “Kandace! Can you come here please?”. I pause the show and walk out of the room and sit on the couch she looks at her phone and then at me, “ Katelynn and Andrea are moving to Arizona.” she says in a sad voice, My heart stopped. In my head, I just kept thinking It’s a joke, she is just kidding, why would they move so far away? but she wasn’t they were really moving to Arizona, and I had no idea why.
I’ve travelled internationally since the age of two. Some say that makes me fortunate, but I think it means my parents are morons for wanting to lug a baby around Europe and then expecting me to have vivid memories of the entire trip ten odd years later. I remember eating in a McDonald’s that my parents claimed to be in Paris, however, for all I know it could’ve been a McDonald’s down the street from my house. Besides a cute story about me running around Versalles; the trip was kind of pointless - sorry Mom and Dad.

After the hurricane passed through Houston, I didn’t think that the area was extremely affected until I was watching the news. It showed that the whole Houston area was flooded and houses, vehicles and other valuable items were turned into debris. I have never experienced or seen how
