    Valdosta Creative Writing

    • 1742 Words
    • 7 Pages

    On my sixteenth birthday, I realized how fleeting all of the things I thought were permanent could be. I had no doubt in my mind that I was going to be living in Valdosta, Georgia up until college, which was neither good nor bad. I didn’t want to stay in Valdosta until leaving became a real possibility. Early in the first semester of my sophomore year of high school my mom broke the news to me. My mom came and sat on my bed with me after I got home from school. I remember how surprised I was to hear the words come out of her mouth. “Your father and I are sorry for not asking you beforehand but I just didn’t think I would get in,” my mother said. I sat in a silence, nodding her to go on. “I got into the Air Force! I am scheduled to go to training in May. I know it’s nearly a year away but what do you think?” she said. “So you would be stationed at Moody Air Force base?

My mom replied with a frown, “Not exactly…My orders haven’t come in yet but Moody Air Force base is not one of my options for a base.” I was speechless for the first time in my life. As the statement sunk in, I bawled. I’m positive that she expected this reaction as I was finally getting my life together. Now, It felt as if it was toppling down again. I felt as if I was in a movie and thought this is not my life. Timing is everything. I was finally starting to “fit in” with people at school and with my…

    I hope all is well with you Emily. I talked with you over the last couple of month. I was having a hard time with the College of Western Idaho meeting my Reasonable Accommodations. I eventually got that worked out but it did not make me feel good going there anymore so I decided to transfer to a bigger school Boise State University because I thought that they would have more resources to accommodate me; I was wrong. Speaking to you put my heart at ease on the legal definitions and I could tell…

    Intro The San Antonio Spurs will face off against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference semi-finals in a battle for Texas. If you told me we would get a James Harden vs. Kawhi Leonard matchup in the second round, I’d gladly accept it. Two of the top five MVP candidates will go head to head, in what should be a great and entertaining series. If the regular season is any indication, then this series will be extremely close and go down to the wire. All four of their regular season games…

    During our many outings’ around Charlotte I have learned a lot about Charlotte and what it has to offer. Going to the Mint Museum by far has been my favorite outing because I have never been to an art museum before and it was very interesting to learn about the artist featured there and their artwork. One painting stood out the most to me during our time at the Mint Museum. I believe this painting depicts my journey through life and how my mom has been the backbone for my family and me. It…

    For project 2, the plan was to attend a seminar of some sort regarding estate planning. Chris Hogan, one of Dave Ramsey’s personalities, was here towards the end of March but his speaking arrangement wasn’t centered solely around estate planning and instead, was more of a “smart money” event about getting out of debt etc. After doing some research, I found several different seminars that will be taking place locally next month around the Salt Lake Valley, but since the semester will be over by…

    Introduction Ever since a child, I have been overwhelmed by the vast number of career options I could choose from, and have never been entirely sure what I wanted to become. I’ve always been curious; I like knowing how things work and why they work. I’d tinker with a computer or take toys apart to fix them or simply for fun. As time and I grew on, things haven’t changed very much. I still love figuring out how things work, and learning about technology. Once in middle school, I dreamed of…

    26. The Blue Devils have surprised many of us the last three years, posting an above .500 record and appearing in a bowl each season. The Blue Devils have reach four consecutive bowl games and prior to Duke’s bowl appearance in 2012, the last time the program had went bowling was 1994. The Hoosiers got off to a hot start this season, winning their first four four games over lackluster competition. Indiana, however, struggled when conference play began by losing their first six Big Ten games.…
