A trip to Los Angeles might be any person’s dream. That is, if they don’t live in the area and are filled with ideas of what the experience is like based off of what they have seen on television shows, music videos and the like. To me, Los Angeles is just another place. I lived there until I was...Tags:
At the Windsor High every year the Gospel and Chamber choirs, along with the band, take a trip to a music competition outside of the state of Connecticut.

Every year, I participate in an annual Mexico Short-Term Mission team with my church youth group. Last year was the first time my brother and I decided to travel with the team to Puerto Pensasco, Mexico.

Initially I wasn’t interested in going, partially because my stomach and...Tags:
I’m standing at the edge of a lake. To my left is a hill side coated in deep green and auburn trees with mounds of snow intermixed; ahead of me is a snow capped mountain reflected in a vibrant blue lake; and to my right is a knurly tree that root’s wind through the rocky floor and my family...Tags:
On January 15, 2008 I found out that I was chosen to be apart of an ambassadorship program for high school students sponsored by the America-Israel Friendship League (http://www.aifl.org/index.asp). I and eleven others would travel to Washington D.C., New York and Israel where we would represent...Tags:
Imagine green, lush trees as far as the eye can see. Imagine catching fireflies every night and seeing deer every morning. Imagine picturesque houses, scenic drives, and lovely views. However, every good side has a bad side lurking behind it. In this case, the bad side included high temperatures,...Tags:
The rain came down in a thick shower and the water around our canoes seemed to splash up to catch it. The rain wasn’t cold. But is was generous with a refreshing and revitalizing soaking, even through my waterproof Frog Togs. There was no thunder, simply the excited chirping of the birds as we...Tags:
