If I'm in...I'll be All-In. While I'll be the first of family and friends to attend the University of Colorado, Boulder and unsure of the challenges within the campus community, I know myself. I am at my best when I fully commit.
Many people do community service, in and out of school. However, many haven't had the event opportunities I've had in the past. For this reason I am grateful for being a member of Key Club. Through my Key Club experience I have been able to assist families who have had to dealt with cancer and abuse. In the month of October alone, I have been able to to attend two walks for cancer. The first walk I attended was the Annual Believe Walk, hosted at Redlands. Waking up at 4:30am and volunteering with such an amazing organization might have been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had the pleasure to experience. The second was the Light the Night Leukemia and Lymphoma Walk, hosted at Fontana. Attending this walk was a different experience
Before I was born, my parents used to call me goblin. This was because I ended up being born around an hour after Halloween night, and at the time i was expected to be born right on Halloween. Since then it has been 14 years and I am now a freshman at Turpin high school. I have an awesome family that consists of four people. It’s me, my younger brother Michael, and my parents. Michael is an eighth grader at Nagel, and just recently turned 13. My parents work together in their own company where they recruit people for jobs. Also, the two families (the Kotts & Meeks) that live on either side of my house are pretty much like my second family. I am closest with Elizabeth, who is 17, and Sara who is 16. I love to go on different
It is sad to say that my time in Key Club International has come to an end. All the memories of countless volunteering, of meeting people from all over the Pacific Northwest District, and of being on the District Board, I believe it’s safe to say my Key Club journey has been an unparalleled experience. Key Club brought me a sense of fulfillment, that strove me to break down the barriers I once had. The feeling of getting involved in my community and meeting servant leaders all over the world made me realize the purpose of this organization, which is to serve our community and to better our future.
Over my years of school, one big influence on me has always been sports. Ever since a young age, I have always enjoyed playing and watching sports. In my four years in high school, I have fell in love with the sport of lacrosse.
Key Club International is a Kiwanis International sponsored organization open to high school students nationwide who wish to serve their communities while developing the self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, responsible decision-making and relationship skills that are the foundation for becoming an active citizen. During my freshman year I was introduced to the organization and, upon learning its guiding principles, made the decision to join.
The events that have participated in Key Club are the Socal Corgi Beach Day and the Clinton Corner Parent meeting for this month. I enjoy these two events because I learn how to become more outgoing and being collaborated with other people not only from my school but those that came to the same event. The Socal Corgi Beach Day was taken n Huntington beach, we had to set up the event, help out at other station. My job was to take of Mr. Pickles, a corgi dog, it was an easy job I asked people if they wanted a picture with him. Another event with the Clinton Corner parent meeting, I was only 5 minutes late because I have a college class. I asked permission to finish my work early and I had to do the quiz before I had to leave for the event.
I woke up and took one bite out of my pop tart but that one bite was all I could eat. My legs were shaking, and my heart was pounding. My dad told me, “It is a true honor to even make it this far so go out there and have some fun.” Once I heard this statement, I knew I was ready to go. I arrived at school and boarded the bus. The car ride was an hour and fifteen minutes of hearing the squeaking of the wheel on the bus. My teammates were getting their heads ready for the big game.
Growing up with a father in the military, you move around a lot more than you would like to. I was born just east of St. Louis in a city called Shiloh in Illinois. When I was two years old my dad got the assignment to move to Hawaii. We spent seven great years in Hawaii, we had one of the greatest churches I have ever been to name New Hope. New Hope was a lot like Olivet's atmosphere, the people were always friendly and there always something to keep someone busy. I used to dance at church, I did hip-hop and interpretive dance, but you could never tell that from the way I look now.
It is a somewhat unspoken agreement that people all have, and breaking this agreement is frowned upon. The bathroom is a very unsocial place. You go do your business and then leave, it is very simple. The social norm that I broke was talking to someone in the stall next to me, and continuing to have a conversation even when it was clear they did not want to have one.
Just so you know, this is the Big Apple and I rule this town. New York City is filled with tall buildings, great culture, and historical sites. No other city has so much beauty that it takes your breath away; yet, there is a real danger that lurks on the streets. I should know because I am Detective Michael Morgan a United States Super Spy in charge of capturing dastardly villains who are set on destroying our world. Armed with mind-altering powers, Alex Higgins is on the top of the FBI’s list of the ten most wanted men in America. This thug is one of the greatest danger to our world and must be captured and jailed in the vault of death. There is no place safe for him to hide from the law and rumor has it, he is in my town. You break the law here in New York City, you pay the ultimate price: freedom.
I chose to break the norm of either smiling at strangers or giving them a neutral look when you make eye contact. I decided to give every stranger I passed a confused look like they had just spoken to me in another language. I must admit, this made me feel a bit goofy. I was on the fence as to whether or not to do this in the first place but I decided I just had to. The responses I received were quite comical. A few people asked if I was alright, and one person even asked if I had a problem with them.
Throughout the conversation, Susan did not inform me that the home was still in First Look and not open to investors at this time. Susan did not highlight any features of the home, nor did she talk about the neighborhood or the surrounding area. When asked, Susan paused to reference the property file and stated, "In looking at the pictures it appears that it needs interior paint, carpet, appliances, and a few windows, which the previous seller must have taken." She stated, "I don't know why they have to remove things from the homes." I asked, "Do you have offers?" She paused to check the property file and answered, "No offers." I asked, "Is the property behind the home farmland?" She paused to reference the property file and replied, "It appears
I’m fairly new to the adult romance genre, and after reading a few that I adored I got a blogger friend of mine to give me some recommendations. On her list of recommendations for romances that are more rom-com was Melissa Foster’s The Real Thing. This was my first Melissa Foster book and I absolutely loved it! I’m so glad I decided to pick up this one as one of my first picks. he Real Thing takes place in a small town called Sugar Lake and features Zane and Willow who have a somewhat complicated history. I loved that they technically started out as friends and kept in touch all those years before getting together as it just made their chemistry and relationship all the more steamier and swoonier. And while the fake relationship trope was used
