I remember when i woke up Christmas morning, we ran down stairs, saw an envelope on the fireplace. We opened it and in it was tickets to... DISNEY WORLD! We were so happy, no one could believe it. In one month then we would get on a plane for Orlando.
My mum began to understand me, and said, I am sorry I don't want you to feel that bad.
Jace Link Mrs. Weber English 6A 1 May 2017 Bigger Than Basketball For a majority of people in the world, if they were to wake up with 350 million dollars, and would be able to be fully retired by 38 years old, then they would be very content and happy with their lives. Being able to wake up every day in a big mansion, lying with your family by the poolside, not worrying about financial issues for yourself or loved ones, and lastly having the great opportunity for you and your whole family, to not work a day the rest of your lives. It is an ideal situation that approximately 99.99% of people would want. But, an outlier, challenges those astonishing odds, by using their influence and popularity, to help out and make a difference. Not
While eating we were talking to him about how we were bored in the house because there wasn't much to do. My uncle is big into electronics and technology so he understood where we were coming from. We got done eating and as we were heading home my uncle made a stop at the store. He went in a bought us a new tv just like that. I was surprised by this because whenever I want something that expensive my mom makes me work for it or it has to be a special occasion. The television wasn't something we had to have and that my uncle needed to get us but it would help us, plus make things a lot less boring at our
“Come on guys,” I yelled. I heard the screech of the referee’s whistle. Rushing to the bench, I heard the referee call out “Timeout, Heat.” Everything was on the line and our team’s championship hopes, being foremost on our team’s minds, was all coach could scream about. “I’m not going to tell you how to play basketball,” he yelled out. “That’s your job. I’m just going to say that right now, to us, this is a championship game. If we win this, we move on to the championship. If not, at least let us fall valiantly.” That got the whole team riled up as we rushed back onto the court. The crowd, encouraging as always, yelled out their approval on the fact that we were giving it our all. With just sixteen seconds left in the game and our team down by four, something special had to happen or we were done for the season.
“ Well why would I be mad . If that is the case we should sell the real necklace and buy the rifle that I have always wanted” , he said with peace
We found the store that I like to shop at. The store was empty because everyone was in school. I was able to find two chokers, a pink furry sweater, a pink skirt and black high heel shoes. After that we got something to eat and then we went back home. When my dad got
Like everyone in the culture, My love and admiration of the culture began with certain experiences, and in particular it began with sneakers. Like many sneaker lovers, the love of sneakers came about from sports. As a kid, my father used to watch replays of some of Michael Jordan’s best games with the Chicago Bulls. While watching some of
It was one day before our vacation. We didn't have any tennis shoes, so we went to lubbock. When we got to lubbock we all got a nice pair of Nike's from the Nike Outlet. I wanted a pair of knee high socks. When i asked my mom she said no. I begged and begged my mom till she said yes and then we left to go eat. After we went home.
After we got done playing with our toys, we got our card that our parents gave us every year with $500 in it. My brother opened up his and he had his, my little sister did the same. When I opened up my own there was something better than money, something worth a whole lot more than $500, it was a Car key!!!!!
It all started in the Eighth grade after attending a sneaker convention where vendors buy, sell and trade their inventory. I entered the convention with a pair of sneakers that I had initially purchased for $160 and was able to sell them for $300. That one experience left me both in shock and curious as to why anyone would pay more than retail price for worn sneakers. I learned that sneaker companies like Nike only release a few limited models each year helping me realize that these sneakers, even used could be sold to recoup my initial investment.
Without hesitation, she reached for her purse that was sitting on the nearby coffee table and opened it. She looked through the big hobo type bag and pulled out all sorts of stuff before she handed me a pack of Goody PM powder.
After Jordan cheated on me but before I knew, he asked to borrow $300 for food, just realized he took out $500 instead and refuses to pay me back for all the other money he borrowed or even took without my knowledge. While I'm grateful to finally be done with all the manipulation, I'm deepy saddened because it really goes to show you can't trust anyone but your friends and
“Your offer is too good to believe as it is, so why not consider this as a gift.”
It was weeks before Christmas, everyone was getting ready for family fun. My family had to prepare for a lot of gatherings and a load of presents.
