During my junior year of high school, I took a trip to Italy with my high school. The trip was probably the best trip I have ever been on. We stayed at an American base that was established over there. The first day we just kinda relaxed and got to explore the surrounding area, but the following...Tags:
My trip to Virginia during the summer of 2009 was one of the most memorable trips I’ve ever been on. It was both exciting and scary, and it changed my life for the better. In August, my mother planned a trip for us to visit Virginia. We were going down there to visit my aunt and also to visit one...Tags:
My senior year was one crazy stage in my life. I had to apply for college, do scholarships, manage my life and recover from getting hit by a car and tearing 3 ligaments in my ankle.

Naw-lins. K? Alright, now that I went over that. I was there because I am a Michigan fan. Born and raised in Michigan, and have been a transplant everywhere else that I have lived. So they were playing in the Sugar Bowl at the Super Dome. I love this city. It’s stinky, and gross, but...Tags:

I was so ecstatic and I was determined to make my first trip out of the country my best. In the weeks before we took off, I researched everything I could...Tags:
My vacation to Disney World, with my high school marching band, in the summer of 2009 was one of the most exciting and enjoyable trips I have ever been on. It was also probably one of the hottest I had ever been on. Florida weather was not so kind to us for the first couple of days, it was hot and...Tags:
It had been approximately 7 years since the last time I'd been there. I'd been just seven years old and it had been about mid-July, right before or after my birthday. Now it was October. I was 15. I vaguely rembered some things that I'd encountered last time, but now I carried biased opinions and...Tags:
I gazed out the window as the United States Capitol came into view; I gasped as my dream of visiting Washington D.C. finally became a reality. I could also see the Washington Monument, an amazing tribute that I had seen in pictures and movies countless times, now standing stately before me. ...Tags:
