        On December 26th 2004, the Indian Ocean was hit by a 9.1 magnitude earthquake. While the quake generated a global tsunami that struck the coasts of many bordering landmasses, Indonesia was hit the hardest. In 2007, my family planned a trip to Bali, an island in Indonesia, where we were going...

    This summer my schedule was dominated by early college courses and trying to save money, while enduring a crappy business internship, sponsored by my high school’s Academy of Finance. I endured it for a short 3 months. Luckily, I still managed to take a trip to Virginia with my dad to check out...

  • Marine Graduation 2012 060

    My adventure began the day my older brother James decided to join the Marines. Around October of 2011 he went into boot camp and about 13 weeks later he was going to graduate. We lived in Florida and the graduation was going to be in Paris Island South Carolina so my Mom, his girlfriend Brianna,...

    It was the summer of 2008 and while my family was running around eagerly awaiting the day of our departure, I was sitting in my room watching TV. I had been to Cancun before; nothing exciting there. I wasn't enthusiastic about the vacation we were going to take because I figured I'd seen it all...

  • Colorado's 4 seasons

      My guess is that you want me to persuade you into thinking that Colorado is the place for you and your family to be. It would be impossible for me to make an assumption about a place that has to be experienced on a personal level. What I can tell you, I experienced personally. Colorado is...

    Imagine a blue cloudless sky, a crisp November breeze, and a winding road hidden in the North Carolina Smoky Mountains. The trees displayed their wardrobe of leaves bursting with an array of yellows, reds, and burnt oranges as we continued to drive toward our Thanksgiving destination. My mom and...

    My first year of high school had flown by. I was totally and completely excited about the trip. I, along with several other students from Sun Valley, had been nominated by the band director to attend a tour of five countries in Europe. This was the most amazing opportunity I had ever been presented...

    In May 2008, I went to Yosemite National Park in California. At that time, I was in the 8th grade and I was only 13 years old. I went to Yosemite with my school, Presidio Middle School. I didn’t really know anyone that well who was going on the trip. I signed up to go to Yosemite because when I...

    It’s August 5 of 2007, the first day I went to camp. It’s was an all girl’s camp called S.I.M.S.A so I knew I wasn’t going to like it. All girls in one room together were going be a lot of attitudes flowing around. My cousin Tayna and I had to get up early in the morning to be at this church...
