It means smart, tall, strong
It is the number 78
It is like light, mellow, Caribbean
It is going to Worlds of Fun
It is the memory of David
Who taught me tolerance and, patience
When he dealt with missing a huge buck
My name is Dominic
It means the belief in trust.

In the movie, “Blind Sight” The kids were helped up the mountain by their guides. If the kids didn’t trust their guides, they definitely wouldn’t have made it as far up the mountain. In the U.S Army, trust is a common thing. It is important that you have trust in others to accomplish your goals. It’s almost impossible doing things with others without trust.

A lot of people don’t clearly understand the meaning of American freedom. They don’t understand the sacrifices that were made for their freedom. The three points I’m going to use to help you understand the meaning, are our U.S Military’s sacrifice’s and efforts, how our freedom doesn’t mean we can do whatever we want without consequences, and about our country’s motto.
Our freedom doesn’t mean we can do whatever we want without consequences. We can’t just do anything, for example: we can’t shoot someone or steal without facing consequences like going to jail for many years. You have to work and listen to your supervisors. You also can’t get essentials without paying for it.
Our motto helps us understand one of the main reasons why we created this free country. Americans came to this country to have religious freedom. It shows our country’s strong belief in God and how much faith we have put in him. We believe he helped our founding fathers create this free country that serves as a safe haven for many different religions. “In God we trust,” is our motto.
We have thousand of brave men & women full of valor, sacrificing their lives and working together for our freedom. The men & women put their lives on the line for us. The soldiers form a brotherhood to overpower enemies that wish to take away our freedom. Many of them, present & past, lost their lives to permit the growth of our freedom-full country.
I’ve told you about my reasons for what freedom means. It means we have to work and sacrifice for our freedom. “Freedom isn’t Free.” The next time someone says freedom means you can do whatever you want, tell him/her what it really means.

Have you ever heard of Jay, the legendary ghost of OHS? He was just a normal 15 year old kid that walked around and did his homework on time. One night he came to school on Halloween night with his friends, when one of them thought it would be funny to push him off the balcony.
Jay, as a ghost, is like a black fog that looks like smoke from a wet fire. Since he died in a Halloween suit he was stuck in it forever as a ghost. His face, and head, is covered with the mask and his eyes are really dialated. The only feature on his face you can see is the giant scar across the left side of his face and through his left eye. He looks like a creature, because of his costume, it has giant wings stretching from his back. He is about 6ft. tall and smells like a dead body. He makes screeching screams, and cries.
Jay now has lost almost all of the fun in his personality, all that we see now is sadness, protectiveness, and he seems to have a lot of regrets. At night, Jay yelps “Help!” and “No!” Then, in the morning before he knows anyone is there he yells, “Don’t hurt him!” and “Why?” He always hides from the children, but whenever someone goes to harm an other, he stops them and dissipates into mid-air after stopping them from hurting someone. “He is a protector, that’s what I call him.”

As I, Dominic, walked into the great hall I saw billions of bats, blood, and corpses hanging, and dripping from the walls. Creepy creatures crawling all over the walls and floors with a grey and black tone of skin with teeth (teeth (fangs) as long as pencils. The ceiling was flashing with lightning and the sound of thunder was defining. There were floating jack-o’-lanterns with the faces of demons and creatures that you would only think about in the worst of the world’s time.
Then, I noticed the most amazing part, the food. There were mountains of mashed potatoes, piles of bacon cheeseburgers and everything I would ever want to eat. There were prime ribs placed on every plate covered in BBQ. I saw roast beef covered in gravy and every slice was the most tender slice, each one better than the last. The coolest things on the tables were the stone dragons heads peeking out of the tables spitting Cherry Dr. Pepper into glasses.
There were also very exciting games and activities I hadn’t played since I was a small child. Every game piece was sharp and grainy. You had to be really careful in order to keep yourself from getting cut on the hands.

Today in class we celebrated International Dot Day. We all made our own dots/marks. I think the dots represent our personalities, and show how we feel when we make the dot. I wish I knew about this day before so I didn't have to take so much time in art.

An Unforgettable School Day
“I wonder how many back packs break on the last day of school?” I thought. It’s been a long year and I’ve been working hard, but I’m ready to get out of there! I’m so excited to get out when well… guess what.
I woke in the morning, and I was really excited that its almost over. It was the first time in a long time I didn’t have trouble getting out of bed. I had never been this happy for school to be out or so fast in the morning. I probably got dressed and ready in a duo of minutes. I was so ecstatic that we didn’t have homework for another 3 months.
After school the bell rang, and I got everything out of my locker and my desk in seconds. The teachers said goodbye to us, and I got up and OUT of there! I was in 7th Heaven when school was out, and I was ready for the most amusing summer. It had been so long since I was this happy.
Then I saw my ride, and I was on top of the world. I got a giant smile on my face and I couldn’t help it. I started to walk really fast to the car when the unthinkable happened. My bag broke and all the stuff I collected from the year drenched the ground! I got really mad and could’t believe what just happened.
I look at myself and laugh every time I think of it. I just could not help but let that ruin my time and I regret that I did. I’ll never forget the day that happened, or make the same mistake. I will never ever let something so small ruin my day. What I’m trying to say is, “I learned never to let one bad thing ruin a great time.”

Here is my bedroom. In my bedroom I have lots of things, but these are my favorite. I have an orange and white ’75 GTO baseball cap. My older brother, David, gave it to me when I was little. On the front of the hat there’s a sewn picture of a ’75 GTO, it’s worn down from me wearing it, and it doesn’t fit me anymore. Sometimes I try to get my little nephew to wear it, but he doesn't like to wear hats a whole lot. I also have a desk my dad made me to do homework on. The wood is kind of a really dark Red. My name is torched into the inside of the part that flips up so I can get inside it. I keep my favorite books in it. I have a Crosman Quest 1000 pellet gun, my mom helped me buy. Its a really bright brown. It’s a break barrel pellet gun. I have a Tasco 4x40 scope on it.
I have a picture of my dad when he was about 10 years old. My dad had his head buzzed when he took the picture. He was wearing an orange, blue, and grey plaid shirt. The picture was a little smaller than the pictures we took in our school. I have a shark poster my mom got for me when I was little. It has a great white white shark breaching the water, its gums were bleeding. The word “SHARK!” is written on top of the poster. I also have a wooden pike my dad made me. It is green and has white stripes. It’s missing a fin because my nephew knocked it off somewhere. My nephew loves it, it’s his favorite in the whole house, and if he sees it he has to play with it. I am rich beyond measure.
