Inspiration

    My mom inspires me to do a lot of things, and keeps me from making bad decisions with warnings. She tells me about things that keep me from ruining my life or someone else’s.
    My mom is a great artist so now I’m trying to draw more and more. She drew since she was in kindergarten, but started putting time into during the fifth grade. She was inspired by her brother Rick and her friend Trista. She wanted to be as good as them. Her goal was to draw her mom and dad’s wedding.
    Her first car was a 66’ Mustang. She and her dad got in an argument about driving to school, so she ended up driving a different car that barely ran. I asked her what she thought was her worst wreck, she replied with a wreck that didn't cause much damage to the car but she remembers when she rear-ended a car at a construction site my sisters started screaming and crying.
    She has never traveled out of the U.S but she’s been to every state west of here, O’NeillNE. She's been to very few states east of here. She's always wanted to go to Venice, Italy. She always tells me and my brother that we have to take her there.
    My mom is a great inspiration to me and I look up to her. I don't want my life to end up like hers, not to be mean. I want me to use all her advice so that my life ends up better.

Travel Report

The Bahamas are beautiful islands located in the West Indies. They have many activities like diving, or walking on beautiful white sand beaches by the crystal clear waters.
    The history of the Bahamas is associated with the history of America. First, Lucayo Indians lived there, but in 1492 Christopher Columbus landed at what is known as today, San Salvador. Most of the new colonists were African-Americans that came down after the Revolutionary War. 4/5th of the population live on only 2 of the 20 inhabited islands. Pirates used the Bahamas as a base and when the Bahamas wanted independence from Britain the pirates raided british settlements. From the Civil War era to the mid 1900s the Bahamas went into economic decline. Then tourism became they’re main source of economy and raised the Bahamas’ money level.
    The dining there is based off of seafood, as you can guess. They have lots of foods like Rock Lobster or Peas n’ Rice. A lot of dishes are served with rice or pigeon peas. If you are a seafood fanatic the Bahamas is a great place to eat.
    Diving in The Bahamas, an unforgettable experience. You can explore sunken Spanish Galleons, reefs, and even underwater caves. The diving provides an epic view of marine life, with visibility of 200ft in the water, you could even take a look at things like sharks. There is a huge variety of fish to see in this sea. There are even island blue holes or deep underwater tunnels in islands. There is even a deep drop-off of a coral wall, and a water temperature of 80 degrees year-round.
    The Bahamas are beautiful, and will be a life changing experience for anybody. You could even go to almost untouched islands and imagine yourself as an explorer in the past. There are so many exciting, and exhilarating things to do in the Bahamas but that’s for you to decide what they are.
