First full game. Full of tears.
I was in a deep sleep, wising that I was 35 and then BAM!!! I woke up and I was tall. Then my mom came in and started yelling at me. She thought I was a stranger. But now I found myself outside with fancy clothing on me. I felt around in my pocket and I felt car keys to a new Lamerghini and one billion dollars. So I got in my car and drove around South Carolina looking for a mansion to buy. There it was – my dream house and just the right price. I went inside with a realtor and gave him the money for the house. But after I paid for the house I looked in my wallet and there was no money left. So I found a job at a toy store and I started working right off the bat and I got a bunch of free stuff with the job. So then I took it all to my apartment and set it up I got a trampoline, “90” inch TVs, a xbox with games, a water bed, leather couches, bean bags, food, a hot tub, and fire places.
I invited my friend Cooper, Ian, Evan and Willem to come see my new house and go swimming in my big underground pool. I showed them around my five story house with 10 bathrooms and 15 bedrooms. They decided to move into my house so I gave them each a bedroom. Then we went into the basement and found a big garage with every type of car and brand I did not even know about. Then it was night time so we went to bed. BAM!!!
I woke up and I was a kid again.
Cotton Candy Mandy was the queen of Sweet n talk
She would put the bad donuts in the dungeon
and keep the good lollypops up on top
While the milk dud cows graze
the kettle corn would try to get out of a maze
The skittles would slide down rainbows
and tell the sixlitts riddles
In the annual running race the whoppers
would always beat the gobstoppers
The town of Sweet n Talk is funny
but also really yummy
Have you ever had a stranger sit by you, that really taught you the best lesson ever? Well I have . Sit down and I will tell you a story.
It all started when I had a fight with my best friend , lorie we argued and argued about who won a game in tether ball, now that I think about it it was just a silly fight that I should of never got into. But I was really furious so I decided to get my anger out at the park so I sat down at one of the benches. You'll never guess who sat right to my side!
An old man who butted into my business seconds after he sat down. He said "My name is Harald and you little girl look furious do you want me to comb you down, I am a fully licensed thereapist now go on and tell Harald your problem." "No thanks." I said. Thinking to myself wow this guy is really annoying can he go away already. But the more I said no the more he kept trying. Read more »
Vermont is my home but I also like to roam
Around in other places
Besides the golden dome
Florida's sandy beaches
Cape Cods too
New York's tall sky scrapers
In cars or on feet baring shoes
This was the worst day ever. First, a ton of homework, which I decided to do in the park so I could get some fresh air, and then being squished between this old guy and the park bench. The old guy had brought 3 sandwiches, 2 apples, 1 bag do pretzels, yogurt, a HUGE bottle of soda, and his laptop. He had spread out and taken up about 7/8 of the bench. This was like sitting next to a fat kid on the bus! I tried my hardest to ignore him, but after a couple of minutes, he put down his laptop, closed his eyes, and lifted 10 feet off the ground!
It was almost as if he was meditating in the air! Then, he opened his eyes, stood up straight (if you can call it that), and leaned forward a bit, which made him zoom forward. He flew around the park, then came back, scooped up some pretzels, and zoomed around again. I was staring at him with my eyes huge and my mouth open, my math book open on my lap. He turned towards me, and I tried to look away before he caught me staring. It was too late. He said "just getting some excersice", and sat down on the bench again like it was a perfectly normal thing to do.
I had always wanted to fly, and this wasn't fair. He was typing away on his laptop, and I eventually started doing my homework. After 5 minutes, I couldn't stand it. I had to know how he did it. "How did you do that?" I asked. "Do what,type?" Mr. Fat Old Flying Guy replied. "Fly" I said. Mr. Fat Old Flying Guy looked at me and said, "you can't fly?" "Of course I can't" I replied. That much was obvious! "Well, first you close your eyes. " Read more »
I was inside of my house when I heard a knock at the door, so I ran to the door to find out who it was. You’ll never believe who it was…the UPS guy. He had a package and he said it was for me. I was so excited but he made me sign a little pad. I always wanted to get a package in the mail but I never got one until today. I opened up the package and screamed and went upstairs to tell my parents. Then they finally came down after a while of trying to get them to come down. I opened it up for the second time and it was just beautiful. It was a treasure map. At the bottom it led me to a really secret hideout. I was so excited. I almost fainted but luckily I didn’t so I went back to go find the UPS guy that had to help me find the secret hideout. He did help me find the secret hideout and there were a lot of old artifacts in there. I found a few hundred bucks altogether. Those artifacts were worth $1 million. I just screamed and I went to go find who that package was from. It was from my birth parents. I just hugged them to death. I shared the money within my family. I kept $500,000 of it and gave my parents $5,000. I gave my sister $1,000 and I gave my birth family the rest.
“I believe that this year will be different, a fresh start.” I whisper in my head, and gently release the glowing, fragile floating lantern over the calm pond water. The soft, warm light of the candle reflects off of the ripples on the surface. Crickets chirp into the cool night sky . Boots crunch on the fresh grass and twigs. I inhale the dew-scented air and let it out in a big sigh, watching my lantern drift into the unknown.
Time is ticking

Nothing makes sense
Nothing is clear
Encased in darkness
You feel he is near
No way of knowing
Nowhere to run
Nothing can stop it
Not sword nor gun
You turn every corner
You draw every breath
Every decision is futile
Only leading in death
Not knowing what to do
Not knowing what to expect
You feel its presence
Taking one ice cold breath
And when you expect it
He is not there
And when you are arrogant
To the darkness, and despair
There you'll feel helpless
So small and alone
No way to come back
To your towering throne
For there you were king
You made the rules
Totally in control
Not manipulated by this ghoul Read more »
I am falling
Then I reached a wall or a barrier and there is a hole in my barrier which I hit.
Put my head through that hole to see the veiw that could be new for me and you.
And what I see is certinly new for me and most likly for you too.
It is a room but it is no ordinary room for that matter.
Shouldn't rooms be right side up not
up side down.

Dear President of a Tobacco Company,
I would like to share my opinion with you on what you are selling. I don’t think that it is right for you to sell tobacco. It isn’t fair. Not only am I trying to rebel against the very idea of using tobacco, but so are many other people. I mean, just look at someone who has been using your product and compare them to someone who isn’t. See any differences?

Hair stands up
A smile comes from a frown
Hanging from the rafters
By your feet for dear life
But there is no fear
There is no fright
With a ray from above
Imaginations run wild
As your head fills with blood
My favorite place is DEFINITELY Venice, Italy! I LOVE the sound of the water flowing along the docs, sidewalks, and buildings of Venice. In
the backround I hear the great sound of people talking to each other in conversation. As I walk deeper into the town, I love to hear accordions
and singing either as a band, a trio, a duo, or just a single person. They might just put a show on for me. I love the way the accordion player pulls their accordian out and in.
Looking around Venice is amazing to see the shiny water everywhere with gondolas' on it. The people in the gondola love to hear the gondolier sing. I know I do! There are tall churches to explore and the inside is a sight to see - amazing drawings and amazing sculpture.
When I heard that my family was going to Italy, I was soo excited! I didnt know much about it and I had no idea what it would be like. When I went to all of the different places in Italy the one that made me feel soft inside, was Venice. I LOVE being in Venice because it helps me be calm, full of comfort, and helps my thoughts get thought about. That is why Venice, Italy is my favorite place.
My favorite place is the woods behind my house. We have lots
of space back there and there's a valley right beside my house that my
brother and I like to play in. There's a lot of stuff down there: we've
got piles of wood from fallen trees, a place where you can dig down
three feet and only find rocks, there's a little creek running through
the middle, a hill that we made a bunch of traps on, a little crater
that we use as our home base, and a few other things.
But it doesn't end there; there's also an old mill foundation on our
neighbor's property. We explore this frequently; there is an old stone
foundation that has crumbled over the past 100 years. I can just imagine
what it used to look like. We've been able to dislodge a metal stake
from a tangle of barbed wire, and recover a metal hoop from an old
barrel. Maybe I shouldn't have, but they are now placed artistically in
the gardens at my house. So cool!
One of my favorite parts
of the woods is a rock beach down by the brook (the little creek in the
valley flows into it) with a big rock in the middle of the brook right
off the shore. The swimming hole there is great. It's right behind the
rock so you can use the rock as a diving board! But beware . . . there
are 8-inch-long leeches that like to cling to the downstream side of
this rock! Read more »
I am on the beach flying my rainbow kite. the air smells of sea salt and the sky is bright. After this I go back to my house and ride my bike
with my dad. I feel relaxed as the wind blows my hair. I see shells below me, and above me the sky is turning a gloomy gray color. We ride
home as it starts to rain. The sky opens up and it pours and pours. We have spaghetti for dinner tonight. I smell it cooking, the delicious
tomato sauce and warm pasta. It's still raining when I go to bed. In the distance, I can hear the waves crashing down on the shore and I see the lighthouse, shining through the fog.
I woke up from a peacefull sleep. "YES!" I think, "another weekend!" I look around my bedroom, sighing and yawning. I perk up when I hear the sound of Sneakers, my gerbil, chewing on a peice of corn. It's a sort of high-pitched sound, that echos all over the room. I closed my eyes, then realize I can't fall asleep again. I look at the celing, spiked with paint, and decide to turn off my lamp. I see Maggie's lamp shade on top of mine. I click off my lamp grumbling. I'll have to talk to her about that. I get up, and the very second, I put my feet on the floor, it creaks. I shiver with fear, thinking of how carried away I got last night with my thoughts. I realize that it's a new day, though, so I walk out, ready for a good bike ride. Whoops! Forgot to get dressed.I wonder if PJs are good for biking?
Mason, Nolan, Thomas, Matt and I were exploring in a old, abandoned
house. The lights went out and Matt disappeared.Meanwhile a black
soul,no face with a cloak and a hood was making a plan to kill us.
Meanwhile we kept exploring then outside we heard thunder and saw
lightning.Then we heard a spooky laugh and the lights went out we
screamed and ran but we hit a door. Meanwhile Matt was downstairs
screaming but we could not hear him then the black soul went into his
body and he was inside his body! Meanwhile we kept exploring and found a
gun to kill ghosts and i said "Who you going to call Ghostbusters"! We
heard the spooky laugh again but it was downstairs we toke the guns and
went downstairs and we saw Matt standing and he said "Hi Umm its me"
"Wait What's your favorite color" I said "Um Green" said Matt "No
everyone knows your favorite color is Red KILL HIM"! And we shot him and
the black soul went into the soul catcher and died! Matt then said "I
have a headache" Let's go" I said
"The Ghostbusters did it again" I said The End
Now I blissfully fly in the blue sky
feeling just like a bird
as I say goodbye to the herd
when I go over the red, yellow and orange trees
I swoop down to see the flowers and bees
I fly in the country because it’s open
and free right now nothing can bother me
I feel so tall when I’m over the
trees and houses
I go over the clouds the breeze is cold
it’s crisp against my face but I go right through it
at least the sun is bright and lit
What a nice day
Now I feel thirsty, so I go to the river bay
I drank very fast
I climb back into the air
I was up here - high
because now I can fly
I sit here waiting,
on this cold, snowy bench,
for the day that I can play football.
They say that girls aren’t able:
That they don’t have the right build,
That they lack the strength or the will,
That they are weak,
That they do not have “the killer instinct”,
But I’m going to prove them wrong.
On the first snap of the ball
I will get a touchdown.
I will tackle the QB.
I won’t fumble.

It was a night full of grey and there was lightning with thunder
by its side. The mansion on the other side of town from Bella and
Caitlyn’s houses was even scarier than on a normal Halloween night.
Bella and Caitlyn ALWAYS go trick-or-treating together and NEVER miss
Halloween. But their parents weren’t sure about them going outside in
the horrible weather. This year was going to be Bella and Caitlyn’s
first year going trick-or-treating without their parents. They pleaded
and begged to go. Finally and luckily, their parents let them go in
raincoats, rain boots and with umbrellas. Bella and Caitlyn didn’t
argue with them about their attire because they were so happy they could
go. As they set out in their Power Ranger and professional soccer
player costumes, they went to houses, knocked on doors, saw their
friends, got candy, ate candy, and traded candy. After a while they
finally went to every house EXCEPT the mansion. They went across the
entire town already!
we’re out of time. We didn’t get to every house. Pity,” said
Caitlyn. “No! We are doing what we said we would do – going to EVERY
house in the town! And this house looks like it is in the town to me,”
proclaimed Bella. “I guess we have a little time,” Caitlyn said

When a lot of people think of martial arts, they think of somone
doing a round house kick or a karate chop. But martial arts is not about
violence, it's more about stopping violence. For example the opening
move in almost every martial arts form is to first clench one hand in a
fist and then put the other hand over it. This gesture means control
Martial arts is also about the martial artist's
spiritual journey. Most senseis, martial arts instructors, talk about
reaching a plateau, which means a point in their career when they feel
like they know everything there is to know. As a matter of fact, really
that is the time when they are truly learning. Most people dont realize
it, but if you're a true martial artist you will be able to know how to
learn litle variations on the forms. These small changes might seem
unimportant at the time but in the long run they will increase your
At one point in my martial arts trianing I
reached such a plateau. I felt like there was nothing left for me to
learn. At times it even felt a bit depressing. But I stuck with it.
Learning karate means learning a number of different forms. Each
involves 20-30 different positions that have to be executed in a set
order. So for about a year I practiced these positions over and over
again until I could do them with my eyes closed. It started to seem
repetitive,but, as I continued, I realized that part of my spiritual
journey was dealing with the feelings of being stuck in place. Realizing
this, I was able to eventually get through it.
you want a compassionate, caring, president who will stand up for
middle class people? vote Audrey Rowe for president if you want a happy
enjoyable country to live in.
will make the united states of america a clean happy place, I will
treat the middle class exactly like the high class millionares. I belive
that gay marrige is exactly like marrige between a man and a woman no
different and is not to be made fun of because I think that if you love
the person it should be allowed that you can marry that person. You may
not belive me and may think that I am bluffing but you have my word that
I would be the best president this country has ever seen. I do not
discriminate against religions allthough I have none, you may think that
I am a softee and would not stand up for america at war or not fight
back but trust me I can be soft and cold and that can change instantly. I
am also the best choice for those of you who want taxes to be lower , I
know you don"t want to waste away your money on taxes when you could be
spending it on college for your kids or retirement plans for the
future. I will stand up for womens rights and I will be the future
Hey. Before you get too attached to me, you should know that right
now I'm fighting a dragon. Yes, I said a dragon. What are you, deaf?
Anyway, back to what I was saying. So, if I die, you can always say that
you knew me in the twenty seconds we have. Someday, its going to be
quite a privilege to have known me. You might even get the privilege to
speak my name. But for now, that's going to be a mystery. My name, not
the speaking part. Jeez! Try to follow along will you?
Like I said, before you get too attached, I'll tell you the whole story. I'll start at the beginning, just for you.
in my world, everyone has a talent, or power. Some have super strength,
some are born with the hands of a blacksmith. Your talent always says
something about your destiny. Like if you have super strength, then it
could mean you're a natural born superhero, or you're meant to be a big
bully. Who knows? Sometimes, people get they're power early. You can
always tell if you're going to get a power if when you are born with
your eyes closed.
I was born with my eyes closed, but I still
have no power, but my BFF, Zeus, says I'm just a late bloomer. No, he is
not the real god. He was named after him. His name fits though. He
controls the weather. He can make it super sunny, or make it the worst
storm ever seen! What I'm trying to say is stay on his good side.
finally catching on are we? Good. Now I don't have to explain as much.
I'm hoping I get the power to mimic. Mimicing is the best if you know Read more »
I was out on a dark windy Halloween night with a few of my friends. We
decided to take the long way to the Halloween party. We walked past an
overgrown path that we had never noticed. Feeling brave, we decided to
check it out. At the end of the path there was a big old crooked house
with moss growing up the sides. It looked like someone had not lived
there in a very long time. We walked closer and the door slowly opened
with a creak. We entered the house as we held each other tightly. It
smelt like a dead animal and had cob webs everywhere. Then The door
slammed behind us. We screamed!! I tried to open the door but it was
locked! We ran to the back of the house to find another way out but
could not find anything in the darkness. We stood there for a moment
when we heard a loud crash coming from upstairs. We went upstairs to
see what it was. A lamp had crashed onto the floor and there was blood
dripping down the wall. After that we knew that this house was haunted!
We ran downstairs and found a shovel. We smashed open a window to get
out. We ran to the Halloween party. We will never go near that house
