Las Vegas

Riding home from Charlie’s wedding

Driving home from Charlie’s wedding on Sunday was by far the most immature I have ever seen my sister Rebecca act. Not only did she endanger us by driving recklessly, but she had a temper tantrum and told my mom to stop talking multiple times. She thinks she can just do whatever she wants because she’s an adult, but she was driving my mom’s van home. Driving someone else’s vehicle is a privilege, not a right. If you’re in someone else’s house, you’re supposed to treat them with respect. Rebecca had been acting childish and making poor decisions since she arrived in Reno last week, and nobody can understand why she keeps acting this way.

Almost every night she stayed out past midnight and then expected us to watch my niece all day while she slept in past noon. I mean, what was she doing, driving to Vegas and getting a Las Vegas Liquor License? On top of all that, she filled every room in my dad’s downstairs with useless things that she didn’t need to bring. I stayed in Reno for two months and only brought two suitcases. Rebecca was here for one week, and brought around eight suitcases. She only brought her boyfriend and a baby. That’s five suitcases at the most, and only because she had to bring all the essentials for the baby like diapers and wipes and stuff.

They even filled the compartments under the floor of the van with two trash bags full of clothes. Even with all of this riding against her, she was late to pretty much every event we invited her to. When my mom called her out during the drive home, Rebecca lashed out and stopped the car at a grocery store for around half an hour. She let Taylor get out and walk around, but whenever Taylor walked nearby my mom Rebecca would pick her up and set her down on the other side of the van so my mom couldn’t interact with her. My mom had to repeatedly tell Rebecca to slow down on the drive home, because she kept tailgating some guy on a motorcycle in front of us.

Upcoming school year

You probably don’t know this, unless we have somehow met in the past and you coincidentally happened to find this post, but I will be a high school senior during this upcoming school year. I have pretty much all my credit requirements, so the majority of my classes are going to be electives that I thought sounded interesting. The classes I can remember off the top of my head are financial algebra, law studies, botany, guitar 1 and 2, and a senior project class that only happens every other day because it works on an A/B schedule. The senior project is essentially a job shadowing presentation but I won’t know any specific details until I take the class.

It’s actually really unfortunate because I was hoping I could job shadow my boss, but I don’t know exactly what to look for because they won’t release any of the info to juniors. Maybe I could even shadow my buddy at one of the best sparks plumbers. Before you comment about me taking botany, keep in mind that physics was the only other option and my final grade in chemistry was roughly my age. See if you can figure that one out. I actually already took guitar 1 at the beginning of my junior year, but my school works on a trimester system and I had it during the first trimester (yes, I realize that makes me sound pregnant) and I’ve had two rotations of schedules since then.

I just thought that I would take the first class again so I could relearn the basics before or during my advanced guitar class. I’m also taking ASL 1, the beginner american sign language course at my school. If I had known that my school had sign language courses last summer, I would have taken them, but I was in the middle of a big move so I just let my mom pick all my classes. One class I would have looked forward to taking would have been an advanced food course (I don’t know the titles) because I really enjoyed my food class last year. My teacher actually commended me multiple times for my ability to delegate the multiple tasks in our kitchen, so we would have everything done at once

In defense of city parks

City parks are definitely a pillar of society, providing a platform for people to congregate in the outdoors. I’m gonna use a lot of big words this time, so don’t be afraid too google some of them. Not only do city parks keep people out of their homes and in some sunshine, they are beneficial to all ages. Old people still have the luxury of laying in grass and smelling clean air, even if they have no way of getting back up without assistance. Children and teenagers are just capable of enjoying the parks the most, because they can still do strenuous activities like playing football in a field. In addition, there are usually a multitude of benches in any park so the elderly will always have a chance to rest their “tired old bones”.

At least nobody calls them a whippersnapper or anything. I can understand how some people may misconceive the management of city parks by the government, especially with shows like “Parks & Recreation” making local government workers look like they do their job as if they were the main characters

in the movie “Clerks”. However, everything you see on TV is not actually real. Especially not kung fu movies that make 20 year old children want to unleash their boundless, violent rage on inanimate objects.

Doesn’t that picture just look inviting and friendly? I believe that people who stay inside all day just don’t have the necessary friends to do activities with. It could be their fault, it could not be. I don’t know everybody on Earth. Back on topic, assuming said city park had any number of trees, it would automatically give back to the community in a natural sense. Who can say no to more oxygen? City parks are also capable of creating memories for people that last a lifetime. I definitely know about this firsthand, as the park that I live nearby has been there my entire life, and it is one of the few constants in my life that I intend on keeping. Plus if you’re hungry you can always just have a picnic at a city park. I see lots of birthdays happening at the park by my house
