With the help of my cousin on the beach I was able to be up riding a wakeboard within minutes. I remember people watching me on the beach and cheering for me when I finally got up on the wakeboard. After that day I was no longer intimidated by the Columbia River. I think I spent enough time in the water that day that I was finally comfortable with being in the river. Ever since that day, wakeboarding is one of my favorite ways to utilize my free time.
I knew only what I saw on TV. One day my mother took us to a park named Bell isle. This park was located quite a distance from where we lived. We would go there that day for our first time ever-family picnic. Stan was excited because he was going fishing.
Gayle Forman is a best seller, an award-winning author, and was a journalist for Seventeen, magazine. I enjoyed reading Gayle Forman’s, novel If I Stay; because it was haunting in a beautiful way. It was heartbreaking to hear what to happen to Mia. Gayle Forman was so descriptive that I felt as if I was “Mia” myself. It’s a difficult choice to make, but with the right thoughts, love from family, it gives you a reasons to stay.

As she goes to Stratton Point where Sean is, to tell him that the party at the beach for the beginning of summer will start soon and she wanted him there with her.

This was great for me because I would read three for school work, but then I would read the other seven for fun. My freshman year, I learned that I love Shakespeare. Not a common thing for someone to hear. We read Romeo and Juliet and I was in awe of the way Shakespeare foreshadowed and intertwined those star-crossed lovers. Sophomore year I was able to further pursue Shakespeare with Hamlet which I loved because The Lion King is my favorite Disney movie; however, my favorite book genre came to my knowledge during my sophomore year as well, dystopian novels.

Apparently I was not spending enough time with her, and too much time with the fish.
