  • “Shut up!” “You Shut up!” The wheels of the bus droning. The hum of the TV that’s been going non-stop for the past 27 hours. The group of girls in the back giggling the entire way. The parent-chaperone snoring, passed out like it’s no problem. The bathroom door repeatedly whooshing open and...

  • It was a cold and chilly morning on January 2, 2010. It was the start of the new-year and I was up at three in the morning headed toward Modesto, CA.

  • Vacation: A special trip for the purpose of recreation or relaxing.  While this is true, my favorite reason to take a vacation would be making memories with my family. Every few years my mother and father plan an unforgettable vacation that is full of amazing memories. One of my favorite...

  • My travels to Kolkata, India with 14 other friends and teachers from my school opened my eyes to what most of the world lives like.  I now realize how truly blessed I am! I have also learned that life is not about serving me; it’s about serving others, and turning the blessings I have been given...

  • Gripping my father’s coat, I gazed upon the unfamiliar land with awe and curiosity. My forehead trickled with sweat and my heart raced uncontrollably. Each step became heftier and slower as I approached this land—this mysterious land of Tijuana, Mexico. For a 15-year-old, leaving the “safety zone”...

  • When I say Winnipeg, Manitoba is my favorite place in the entire world, people look confused. In Canada, Winnipeg is notorious as number 1 on the Winter Weather Misery Index. (The wind chill is sometime -55 F), and is very flat. One of my hockey camp friends said, "If your dog runs away, you can...
