  • My family and I went to Arkansas one summer for about two weeks. It was a typical vacation for my family, because on our third day there we had quite the adventure! That morning my mom yelled at us to hurry up and get in the car so we could get on the road. We all hurried out to the car in hopes...

  • A bright sunny day but nevertheless to early to get up, it was March 19th, 2008 with my eyes partly closed I threw myself in a car and off my family and myself went.  I looked up only to see a strange man driving a car that’s when it finally hit me; I was on my way to the all-new Holland America...

  •   We haven’t seen him for two whole years. My cousin locked up in jail for attempted murder. We signed all papers and we were on our way to Delano, California.

Until my eighth grade year, all of my vacations...

  • Julie nearly fainted. Rachel spilled water on her potatoes. George kept eating lamb. The band continued its strains and the groom's family danced.             I, though fazed, continued to politely consume the food set in front of us, aware that this lamb came from the groom's own herd and also...

It’s a small town, so not many people know where it is, when people ask me where I live I usually say, “I live across the river from St. Louis”, because everybody knows where St. Louis is. Belleville may be small, but it does...

  • In an attempt to discover pieces of myself that may have been hidden, I decided in the spring of 2014 to explore the obscure destinations of a nearby city, Oakland. Oakland has this reputation of being urban, industrial, and sometimes lifelessly gray, but I knew that the city had more than that to...
