As we head out on our journey, I follow closely behind everyone so they can assist me on our travels. We turn onto an isolated dirt road, heading to the creek. “This is pretty great”, I am thinking to myself as we begin to pick up some speed on the four wheelers. Forgetting that I was out of place, I begin to realize how much fun I am having on this four wheeler. Other than getting stuck in a creek, I believe I am doing well for an amateur.
During the drive to our first stop I saw many beautiful sites; mountains, lakes, rivers, forests... the nature was truly amazing! We even saw black tail deer and elk roaming right along side of the road. Our first stop was the city of Aberdeen but we only visited Gray's Harbor for an hour to stretch our legs and see if we could spot any gray whales but we didn't see any. Our next stop was beautiful Ruby Beach in the town of Kalaloch. You have to walk a trail through the forest to get to the beach and we enjoyed it so much!
Driving Experience Learning a new skill can be a challenging and exciting experience. I decided to learn to drive after I came to the united state because I feel that will be more convenience to work and school. I have never driven in my native country so I was so exciting to learn about it. After I took the written test to get a learner's permit, my uncle had been taught me on the weekend for one month. I learned all the parking skills, driving skills and the ability of handle emergency before I took the driving test.
Safe from the precarious undercurrent that hid slyly beneath the surface of the water and in protection from the perilous sea cliffs that loomed around us, my younger brother and I would spend hours playing the in sand. Even upon leaving the Island, we would bottle it up in various pop bottles that had accumulated over the trip in order to take home a piece of the mystery. The sands of Prince Edward Island ignited a curiosity that was fueled by aspects of nature that I have never acknowledged before and is the same curiosity that propels me forwards in all facets of my life. After spending summers at the Island, I no longer simply accept the answer or a story, now it’s much more about learning the reasons and twisting the
Now I live in the opposite environment, I work full time, school full time; I'm a full time boyfriend. I try to equally distribute my extra time with my hobbies; which in some cases I don't even get time to do including: hang out with friends, play guitar, skate, make random things, or even visit my father in Oakland and help him with his business. Sarton ends her article with “It takes a while, as I watch the surf blowing up in fountains at the end of the field, but the moment comes when the world falls away, and the self emerges again from the deep unconscious, bringing back all I have recently experienced to be explored and slowly understood” (881). Just how sleep is resting time for your body I believe solitude is a break from social interactions. For me I just get to decompress

The air is thick and has a consistency of its own. Its touch is evident. Every bump in the road revels itself with an unmatched authority, and every winding turn pushes the earth on its side. The ride down the highway once was done as a form of transportation, but while on a motorcycle, it becomes an experience out of the ordinary. While on the open road, the rider gains the ability to smell each individual form of nature.
A life that achieves prosperity has no clear-cut line. A person must find his or her own way. However, It is quite possible that a clear mind is the best medicine for sadness and the first step to happiness. As a person who battled doubt and guilt my whole freshman year of college, I know this all too well. In my very first year of college at Morehead State University, every time I would get a moment to think to myself I’d find that only troubles were waiting to reappear.
So even when I am free from all of my responsibilities, I still don’t ever truly feel “relaxed”. After working thirty hours combined with seventeen credits of school each week, the last thing I want to do is go out on the weekends, but in America it’s all we know. In America there is no slowing down ever; even on weekends, you are still in non-stop go
The hundreds of friends that I had, dwindled down to about ten or so that I keep in touch with on a regular basis. Even though it wasn’t fun finding this out at first, this is something that really helped me realize what a true friendship was. The true friendships that I made while I lived there I still have to this day, even though there is a distance of thousands of miles. Yet, through all this, one of the greatest things that influenced me is the summer when I moved to Virginia. I had absolutely no one here that I knew, I spent that whole summer by myself, but in all reality there was someone there all along.
