  • One of my most eye-opening, self-discovering experiences took place less than two hours away from my hometown; I felt the distance sorely nonetheless. I was accepted into an acting program at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts in Manhattan, and I was to spend a month in New York while I...

  • Planning information can be found at:   http://www.bikekatytrail.com/        Exercise. This word is not often seen in the same sentence as “fun for the entire family” or “an enjoyable scenic trail”; unless, however, you are talking about the Katy Trail. Located along the Missouri River in Missouri...

  • Little boys and girls screaming, my ears ringing, the air singing -- my time had finally come. Most kids wait a whopping four years for this sort of encounter, but me, I've been waiting my whole life -- well my whole kid life -- for this 'experience of a lifetime's the commercials promised. And boy...

Still, it was the last summer my aunt Maureen, a lieutenant colonel in the army, would be stationed there, so I went,...

As soon as they spoke to us about the opportunity, I signed up for it, because I was looking for a change in my...

  • Thousands of miles away, across the Atlantic, lies a land called Florence, Italy. I first discovered Florence through a uniquely boring documentary in my World Studies class in high school. The information, I had heard that before, but never had I actually seen the scenes of Florence! The city...

  • “ Hazme un favor y vaya al Alto de Tabor.” I foolishly accepted the task before even knowing what I was getting into. However, it was my mother’s wish, and whatever she wanted, I would fulfill, as I had three weeks to do what she hadn’t in twenty years. I was thousands of miles away from home...

  •   It started like a regular old Friday in Las Vegas, Nevada; school was boring, math project to work on, but luckily, I was going out of town. My parents set up a Cruise America RV trip with my entire extended family, which consisted of 21 people. Although a weekend in a rental trailer did not...
