  • The summer of 2011 my family and I boarded the Carnival Liberty cruise ship and sailed towards Grand Cayman; Cozumel, Mexico; and Ocho Rios, Jamaica. It was the very first time any of my family members or myself for that matter, had cruised the ocean in such a monstrous invention. The sole...

  • Just a few weeks ago my friend had nudged me slightly as we walked through the hallways of our school. He was staring at his feet with a solemn expression as his silly dinosaur sunglasses bounced atop his head. I smiled sadly and nodded. “I miss it too,” I had said.

  •   My summer in Germany has forever stamped an impression on my life. During the course of my trip I had a variety of experiences; all of which have aided me in my growth as a person. I made lifelong friends who accompanied me in that adventure.       During the month of June a group of high school...

These two statutes were built between 1936 and 1937. I would take them to the...

  • It was smack-dab in the middle of our annual family beach week vacation at Rockaway Beach, when my cousin Renae and I found ourselves face to face with udder boredom. As we listed our options of ways to pass the time, we finally came to the decision that we would go for a bike ride. The goal of our...

  • In 2006, the end of my 6th grade year my grandmother decided to surprise me with a trip to Cancun, Mexico as a reward for my hard work throughout that year.   I was so excited to finally go to Mexico!  That trip was the only thing I talked about from May until the day we boarded the plane...
