Thursday 5th June 2007 was a very lovely day .Everything was perfect and nothing was wrong. I was sitting with my family in our house in Murair Al Mutarish. It is a small village located in the far north coast of Oman in Shinas state . We were watching T.V like any other day, when we heard the news bulletin. While crossing the coast, cyclone Gonu cause a lot of damage and fatalities. Before passing the Sultanate's northeastern coastline, it began affecting the country with strong winds and heavy…
When I was 12 years old, my father felt elated as he was working to help us obtain a US residence card. As many families in Mexico, the lack of employment there, prevented us to have a stable economic status. At that age, I couldn’t find any motive to go to the United States. As a kid, life was exceptional at that moment because I had my friends whom I could spend most of my afternoons with playing soccer, watching movies, and joking about things. In fact, I tried to invent numerous excuses to…
A Time to Never be Forgotten
I will never forget the hot Florida sun in the summertime or the squeaking of basketball shoes moving across the hardwood court. All this happened when I was in the 3rd grade. As I was eager to get out of Kansas, I started packing my bags the night before, and I usually never pack until my mom is yelling at me at the top of her lungs to get out of the door. This was going to be my second time heading back to Florida, but my first time going there for basketball. We…
In life I have faced many disappointments and downfalls in which I have learned many important lessons over the years. Yes, indeed it hurts and makes you very upset and want to not trust in someone never again because of something a person done to you before and you feel as if the next person is going to do the same thing towards you as they did. I have many disappointments in life that I have face but they only made me a stronger and wiser young lady even though when it had…
A theory that people always says are you only snoring when you’re really tired and had a long day. I never really liked sharing with people when I go places, or when they spend a night at my house. One thing I hate is the sound of people snoring when they are sleeping. I could never get used to it because it’s so annoying. I can be trying to sleep and I can’t because they are snoring. When I can’t sleep and I’m tired I get grumpy, because I value my sleep very much.
When I share rooms…
It was the summer of my freshman year in highschool. I finally had a good group of friends that I felt comfortable around ,and my father and I had started fishing together again. It was at this time that my father made the best decision of his life a little too late. He quit smoking. A couple days into it he felt like he couldn 't breathe. The doctors thought he had a severe case of pneumonia. They were wrong. Later that month he was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
The day that he was…
Can everyone sit down, please?

But I have conditions.
Speak, and we 'll make it happen.
I can 't sleep with Smanga.
- What are you saying now?
- It 'll…
I’m sure everyone has learned a lesson or two in their lifetime there is doubt about it. There is one lesson that I recall quite well. This just so happens to be the first time I have been pulled over by an officer. Something that will never happen to me again. This is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to me to this current date. I am not sure how anyone else would feel in this situation, but here goes my experience.
My friend Kayla and I decided that we wanted to adventure to…
Attack of the Zombies
As I drive to school, I look out the window and see nothing but little kids running around and people walking; all I feel is depression. Atlanta has a population of 443, 775 and soon it’ll be 443, 774. Everyone who lives here seems to be so happy, but I’m a caged animal who is ready to fly away. I’m about to graduate and I cannot wait to go to Julliard. This town is full of scum-sucking bullies. I guess the girl with a drunken mother and a father who committed suicide…
