Gene’s Root Beer and Hot Dogs

Sunday, April 29th, I took my first trip to Gene’s Root Beer and Hot Dogs. This is one of the last standings old-fashioned drive-in restaurants in Indiana serving hot dogs, burgers, fried food, homemade root beer, and ice cream! It’s something everyone should experience at least once in their lives and I’m lucky enough to live just miles away. Looking…

Transportation

January 1st, 1914, the first scheduled commercial airline flight took place. Today there are roughly 5,000 commercial airlines over the U.S. at any given moment, this statistic shows just how far transportation has come. At one point in time, it could take anywhere between six and fourteen weeks to travel across the Atlantic, and today, it…

Time Flies!

Time… Sometimes it goes too fast and others it couldn’t go slower.  I didn’t begin to realize how valuable time was until just over a  year ago when my aunt passed away. That is what really put it all in perspective. Because when you lose someone you love it hurts. And ever since then it seems…

Freshman Year

I have almost finished my freshman year and it is CRAZY! My first year of high school went by in what seemed like a heartbeat. For the past nine months, the chaos of school and activities just seemed to fly by! And it may have been the craziest year of my life. However, everything that happened…

History

Since I was a little kid people have been telling me that history repeats itself. And I never truly understood that until this year. This year I am in Mrs. Webster’s AP world history course, and it makes you realize that history is so much more than dates and people, history is a never-ending story!…

Violence

My whole life I’ve heard stories of shootings and terrorist events and it hadn’t dawned on me until just now that at one point, that wasn’t an issue. At one point in time, people just realized their moral responsibility to do good. The fact that some people don’t have that moral obligation inside of them,…

Self-fulfillment

I do a lot. And sometimes I wonder if I do too much, but then again, I know it will all work out in the end. This year I have been involved in seven extracurricular activities alone, and people tend to ask me why I volunteer to do all of these things. That’s what I’m about…

Having a Step-Family

When I was in second grade, my parent got divorced. It wasn’t easy but it happened and I’m a better person because of it. My brother and sister and I went through years of switching between our parent’s houses, sometimes waiting until 8:00 for my Mom to get home because she worked like no other…

Mice Terror

It is the winter season and if you haven’t noticed it’s cold outside. Last night my family and I realized that the cold weather brings more things inside than just us humans. Mom went out to get something out of the garage and we all suddenly heard a screech. There was a mouse, and this was…

Winter Memmories

Every winter it seems as if something memorable happens, whether it be someone slipping and falling on the ice or having an awesome new years celebration. Winter may be cold, and some may not like it, but there are always good moments! Personally, I feel bad for people that don’t get to enjoy the snow and…
