     I live in Orrick, Missouri, a town recognizably not holding back its small town qualities. From its gossip filled restraunts to its teenage filled stage, why wouldn't you want to come visit? With an amasing population of about seven hundred and fifty and a total area of a little under one point...

Before that I had not seen them for four years, more than a quarter of my life at the time. I had to content myself with talking to them over the...

               Bangladesh is a country so small; it can fit 73 times into America. Even with the drastic difference in size, Bangladesh has 1/3 of America’s population. Nearly half of the population lives below the poverty line, and there is hardly any income for most. It is difficult to realize just...

          Arriving at the southern tip of the Rocky Mountains, the first thing I noticed was the color of the ground at my feet; it was orange and, really, it wasn’t so much “ground” as tightly compacted dust. The second thing was the mountains -- endless, craggy mountains as far as I could see....

    Italy was by-far the most amazing place I had ever been. The moment I found out last May that I would be able to go on the trip, I could hardly believe it. I had been so nervous for the auditions. See, my choir was going. Or rather, the music department for my school was setting up auditions for...

    My Father and Step Mother always take my brothers and me on annual vacations.  In 2009, they took us on our first cruise to the Bahamas.  In 2010 they took us on a cruise to Canada.  I speak for all of us when I say: to date our most memorable vacation was June 19, 2011 (Father's Day). We took...
