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.
I was in the car with my family heading towards the lake to go fishing. The car ride was long and boring. Half through the car ride we stopped at a gas station so we could get some gas. After we got gas we went back on the road and I fell asleep through the other half of the car ride.
I was sitting at my desk, looking around for any small detail that I thought I may have missed. Everything looked organized and the way my roommate and I wanted it to look. I looked at him and told him “this is our new home for a year”. Every upcoming college student dreams about moving day and my time was coming soon. Three weeks prior to move in day, I began organizing and preparing for what was coming, “What are the most important things I should bring”, “How much is the trip going to cost?”, all these questions began to rush towards my head at once and if it wasn’t for the help of my mom, I wouldn’t have been able to organize myself and pack for college.
I was sitting on the couch next to my new dog Earl, I was about eight years old. He was a rescue dog from Upaws. He was about one buth this is the first day that we had him. We spoiled him with new toys, but his favorite thing that we had gotten him was his bone.
I couldn’t move, not even a muscle. I was frozen in place, because I knew if I even flinched, things would not turn out well. In this moment I realized I might actually die and this is how it all ends. It was a hot summer day in Maine we were on vacation at the Grand Lake Stream. My family and I were staying at a little cabin right on the lake. My dad and I were sitting on the old, run down dock. I was sitting on the edge of the scratchy wood, dipping my feet in the chilly water to cool off from the hot sun. I was deep in my thoughts looking out to the fourteen thousand acre lake. The warm sunrays beating down on my face felt so relaxing.
It was the Fall of 2014 when I helped the Book Club's fundraising table. We only had banana’s and books for sell. Our plan as a team was to sell all of the banana’s for twenty-five cents and books from one to five dollars. However, realising that most people wouldn’t buy a banana, I suggested that we could take donations for the bananas. Everyone said it is up to you, just make a profit. Ten minutes later we received our first customer, he asked how much were the banana’s, and I informed him we were taking donations to raise money for our club, the banana was a gift to the donor. He handed me five dollars without a second guess, grabbed a banana, and said good luck with the club. These sales continuously came, eventually to where we had ran
Monday was sweet, emotional and so addicting. This is my first read from author E.L. Todd and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but this book hooked me from the beginning. I loved Hawke and Francesca. They were so hot together and I couldn’t stop myself from reading.
There had been a rumor going around Bella Ford's school that some kids had died in an abandoned mine shaft a couple of days ago. Greenville, South Carolina was known for their abandoned mine shafts and underground train tracks. Jordan, Bella's friend, decided that she wanted to explore the mine shaft after school that day. Bella was very uncomfortable when they told her what they were planning to do but being the good friends they are, Bella and her other friend, Alexis, decided to tag along on to this so called "adventure." Bella and Alexis stood in shock and Bella's body became to freeze as soon as Jordan told her what she was planning to do. She has never experienced anything like this in her life. As Jordan kept explaining all the things
As I sit in the chair at my desk, I listen to the music from library. I have many thoughts in my head, and I decide I want to draw something. As I get ideas, I pick up a utensil, and then I start to create shapes. It takes multiple tries to get it to the way I want it to look, so I keep trying. But then I compare both drawings, which one looks better? Should I choose this one?
God can be so humorous some times. I have spent, I don't know, at least 3 months, if not longer, writing in my 2nd edition book. I have spent countless hours reading and researching everything science relating to my subject matter. And spent many hours writing, which has led to close to 100 written pages.
I can feel the sunlight hi my eye lids. Guess it was time to wake up. I flicker my eyes three times before I open them. It was a Saturday morning so I was really happy it was the weekend. I had my who day scheduled out, but before I could do anything fun I had to eat breakfast first. I hurry down down the stairs still in my pajamas. I looked out of the window to see if my mom or dad was still here, but I didn't see their cars so they must have left for work already. They don't work on the weekends all the time, but on occasions they did. I turned around and continues to the kitchen which was just right around the corner. It was hard to think of what I was going to eat.
Once I finished my third margarita, I looked for Diane to take her on a tour of the house. She never saw the renovations we did years before, but really, I just wanted the chance to ask her what had happened since our Rhode Island trip.
It was a frosty Monday morning, in a small town no more immense than ‘The Average Joe’. Only a slim amount of houses to be seen. “Today is the day” I uttered breathlessly, removing the warm boundary separating me from the cool chill of a winter’s morning. The aroma of pancakes with a hint of my mother’s homemade golden syrup left even the fullest of people wanting more. Who would ever have guessed that this would be the last remaining day in my homeland.
