The trip was for the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., and even though I am inclined not to go look at boring pictures tacked up onto dusty walls in dimly lit rooms, I went anyways so I...

  • I always thought I wasn’t the type to judge someone before I knew them. That’s why I waited until I spent a little time with people to file them into a category in my head: studious, bossy, stuck-up, nice, etc. Once they were in a category, they never really left it unless something drastic...

  •              Runners to your mark, set. Go! That was the theme of last year’s 2009 Track and Field trip to the Delmarva Relays in Salisbury, Maryland.

  • In the summer of 2009, I took the trip of a teenage lifetime.  I went backpacking at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico.  It is a High Adventure base for the Boy Scouts of America as well as Boy Scouts from around the world.  I learned from the trip that with people encouraging you,...

  • It’s pretty common for there to be tension, misunderstanding, and a degree of disconnection between second-generation Americans and their parents. Refugees, in particular, leave their motherland with nothing and must constantly be working in order to afford basic living necessities for themselves...

  • Has it hit you yet? No, I just can’t make myself believe it. I really went there? Well believe it or not, I was. Those sought after sightseeing destinations England, France, and Rome.  I traveled to. It didn’t really hit me that I was actually there. We arrived at Heathrow early in the morning...
