  • I live in a typical Michigan family. The kind that still has their windows rolled down in forty-degree weather, stops for deer at least once a week, and lives in a town that has as many bars as it does churches. We're known as Michiganders, and every year we join the Yoopers by making our routine...

  • Conventionally, spring break is a week long period for students of all ages to rest and catch up on sleep. Many go to the beach or lake houses to repose. But for me, my spring break was unique. I traveled half way around the globe to a land of rich history – a land where Pharaohs used to rule, and...

  • Since I can remember, my family has taken a yearly travel to the beach. Through the changes in my life (divorce, lost friends, and the like) the beach seemed to always be a safe-haven for me. So, the summer before my senior year, my family traveled to Corolla, North Carolina for the first time. I...

Needless to say, it was quite a culture shock. Although I was unhappy at first, I decided to embrace the changes and enjoy the week I...

  • Last year, my family and I went to Florida for a week to see my dad. He was down there because he drives the bus for the world famous Harlem Globetrotters! I think that it is the coolest job any dad could have! On our way down there our car broke down and we had to wait for a really long time for a...

  • On Wednesday, June 15th 2009, made my way into the most miraculous adventure of my life so far. I traveled by myself from my small town of Berwick, Pennsylvania, to the city of Chicago, Illinois to see a close friend of mine, Jordan Lewis. Now to most people that may be reading my story, this may...

  • I walk through the big chestnut double doors, trying to be as quiet as I can so maybe I will be invisible. I hear soft music playing as background fillers, there isn't much commotion. Everyone lost in their own thoughts. I see my family gathered around as I take my first step in. My heart is...

  • Traveling is one of my favorite hobbies, which I have had the great fortune to enjoy all over the world.  The summer before my senior year I was given the amazing opportunity to travel to Africa.  In Africa I worked for a school building a kitchen and digging a trench so that water piping could be...
