The Time I…


Everyone has experienced something worth sharing. Whether it was something as small as going to Carowinds, to something as large as flying across the globe. No matter what it is, every person has a good story to tell.

Ivonne Morales (’18), describes a dream of hers coming true. She said it was the “time I went to the Justin Bieber concert over the summer. It was absolutely stunning; his voice was so beautiful. Not to mention the show was insane. At one point he was sitting on a couch playing a guitar, another he was jumping on a trampoline that was hanging in the air, and in another moment he was dancing in water with fireworks exploding behind him. My phone ended up dying, and I had lost my voice for a solid week, but it was by far one of the greatest experiences of my life.”

Aside from fabulous concerts, most everyone wished to go to Disney World as a child or even as an adult now. The breathtaking architecture, thrilling roller coasters, and the magic in seeing your favorite characters come to life there’s no denying that Disney World is a remarkable place.

Cassi Cottrell (’20) retells her vacation to the most magical place on earth, saying that one of her favorite memories worth sharing is “The time I went to Disney World. It may have been crazy hot when I went, and my feet might have been sore from all of that walking, it was totally worth it. I got to see Cinderella’s castle light up at night, I got to take pictures with my favorite Disney characters, and I got to ride so many amazing roller coaster rides. My favorite ride definitely had to be, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. If I could, I would go to Disney World every year.”

Between the thrill of Disney World, and the thrill of summer concerts, how could someone possibly make it better? How about a spectacular trip to the big apple itself.

Madisyn Benfield (’18) talked about a recent mission trip she took with her church over the summer. “I went on a mission trip with my church to New York. My youth group at church goes on this mission trip every summer to New York to volunteer at a soup kitchen, and this year I finally went. It was so much fun to go to New York with some of my friends. We got to visit Times Square, climb to the top of the Empire State Building, and we got to ride the subway. Despite it being really hot the entire time we were there, it was lots of fun and I can’t wait to go again next year.”
