    I was drawn to words at a fantastically youthful age. The moment I was able to pronounce a term, my mouth felt fed and my mind expanded. At age six I was given a dictionary by my grandfather and I would skim through the Golden soft pages, attempting to put words together to form pulchritudinous...

There are the ups, the downs, the “are we there yet?” moments, and the moments when you wonder where the trail will lead.  From the forested Blue Ridge Mountains to the United States’ westernmost peaks, my life is bounded by the heights I choose to conquer....

    THE TRIP THAT CHANGED LA MIA VITA (MY LIFE) The best field trip in my entire life had to have happened last spring. As a four year Italian language student, I had an opportunity to fly over to Italy for ten days with my class. This was one opportunity that I could not pass up. I am glad I went for...

  • The team gathered outside the Bovine Metropolis Theater

    One trip that has left a humongous impact upon me is the trip I took to Colorado with my softball team. This trip not only was one of excitement and adventure, but also one that taught me the strength of sisterhood.Flying into the Denver Airport, I could already feel the thin air depriving my lungs...
