                    “May I take your order?” said the waitress politely “I’ll have General Tso’s chicken with fried rice” Is something my brother and I said almost every evening when we were in Washington D.C.

    Family: ”a social unit consisting of one or more adults together with the children they care for.” With that said, I have many families.

Ever since I was little toddler, I have been dying to go to Disney World and experience the wonderful magic. This dream came to my during my tenth grade year.

  • Mural in Alpine

    Texas is full of Podunk towns. On the hundred-mile plus stretches between more bustling cities, little towns dot the rural landscape, many equipped with not more than a questionable three pump gas station and a Dairy Queen.
