An unforgettable memory which I forgot about!! (a narrative type of story)
DING DONG rang the bell. My dad came back from work tired but excited; I guess he had something in his mind. My dad told us that he was going for a business trip to Dubai but had only three tickets!!
I was extremely disappointed because I knew since I was the elder brother; I had to let Max and mom go with dad. Inevitably my dad told me that I had to stay back. I started arguing with dad but I knew I had no chance because my field trip this year from school was going to be in Dubai!!
This most unfortunate coincidence really infuriated me. I went up to my room and slammed the door and with my face stuck to the pillow I began to cry like a baby.
Before I continue let me introduce myself. My name is Daniel, I am 12 years old, and I am extremely intelligent and active. I study as an amazing 7th grader in the School for success. My mother’s name is Maria and my father’s name is Ken. I have a younger brother who studies in the same school I do, his name is Max. In my entire family the only truth is that not everyone can be as perfect as me. Sometimes I get irritated because the rest of my family takes a long time to understand my super genius brain. You might think I am over exaggerating but the truth is I’m being quite modest actually.
Any way since my little brother and my parents are going to Dubai next month I’ll have to think of something quick. I thought a million times about running away from home. I have discussed my idea with my friend Anil. I told him we could “scavenge for food and sleep in the park” and roam around all day “without having to go to school”. We could live “a life of adventure”. Just to make this quote more vivid, my eyes gleamed with excitement. I don’t know why but it didn’t quite work out. Anil told me that he and his family are going for a holiday too, so there is no way I was running away from home alone.
When dad came home from work today he told me that I was

    Most people rely on the security and care of others to provide for their loved ones when they put them in a nursing home. What they don’t realize is how much neglect goes on to the people they care most about. Residents are at risk of being abused by their caretakers but they are also at risk of being restrained, which may lead to a form of abuse. At Southwestern Nursing Home I have witnessed forms of neglect and abuse. Nursing homes are meant to be a place for security for the elderly to be cared for in their golden years, and it has become an unpleasant experience for senior citizens being subjected to acts of abuse and neglect.…

    It was a hot, sticky day in New York city when we were headed to Coney Island to enjoy the beach. My friends Michaela, Taylor, Karlie and I were ecstatic everywhere we went; this being our first trip to New York. We arrived at Coney Island and immediately hustled to the beach like a swarm of bees. The water was nice and cool and there were seashells everywhere which we scavenged for to bring home. Swimming in the ocean was such a surreal feeling that engulfed all of us until we were too exhausted to continue. We decided to browse the shops on the pier for some keep-sakes or souvenirs to take home to our families and friends. After what seemed like hours we had gathered up all of the must-have trinkets and clothing and were headed back to our area to return to our hotel when we saw a little stand with mini cages on it. Curious, we made our way over to discover dozens of baby turtles, each in their own separate cage. Watching them with excitement, we decided to buy two of them and take them back to South Dakota with us, not thinking about the travel the little turtles would have to endure.…
