  • “I found a new job,” said my dad; was the worst thing I had ever heard. I was beginning my sophomore year in high school. I had my friends, played sports, and was in the school band. Everything was going great! A month later I got my first boyfriend, which made things even better. I knew I was...

  •         I’ve been to a lot of places and done a lot of things, but my most memorable travel experience would have to be the week I lived in a dorm at Liberty University for my first summer camp the American Legion of Boys State.  It’s a camp that is set up every year in states across America...
