    “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you might miss it” Ferris Bueller. This is a quote from one of my all time favorite movies, Ferris Buellers Day Off. In the movie, three very different friends skip school for the day, and explore the city of Chicago. Each one of them had a very different experience. There was Cameron, who always tried to avoid trouble at any cost. He spent the day being worried and nervous because he was out of his comfort zone. Sloane, who always went with the flow, enjoyed her day and was calm no matter what happened. Then there was Ferris, who took all of the risks he could, and was always positive and outgoing. Throughout my three years at Springman Middle School, I have seen myself in all three of these characters.…

    Finally the day was Wednesday the 13th of August. I was so excited to be attending the Jackson County Fair with Ryan, my boyfriend, this year. But the one thing I wasn 't excited for was to ride The Ring Of Fire. This was the ride I gazed at from my house, three blocks away. Sixty feet high in the sky, round like a ferris wheel, passengers would sit in a caged style ride, that looped around clockwise and counterclockwise, and occasionally stops at the top. The fire engine red loop reminded…

    rushed over to, “one of the biggest Ferris wheels in the country” for a ride. I hopped on sharing the cart with two young girls, both from Worcester who informed me that there was nothing remotely as cool as the Big E in their hometown. I engaged in conversation with the two girls despite my anxiety level reaching maximum status as we all looked out at the Big E, which at the height we were, looked like a miniature replica of itself. As I got off, I made my way toward the exit before being…
