welcome to my blog.
In chapter twenty of the Adventures of Tom Sawyer Tom takes the blame for Becky when she rips a pay in their teachers book of the human anatomy. In order to win her back tom tells every one he did and spares Becky of the imminent punishment. I would say that this scenario happens a lot in life. A few years ago my brother and I were whiting in the car while our dad picked up a few thing at the hardware store. As soon as our dad left us to go inside my brother took the cooler that she had for the dog and threw it on my lap he then began to press the buzz button rapidly while this did not hurt is scared the heck out of me. At this time I was not in the best mood and got really upset mainly because I had spilled my drink all over the front seat of the car. I knew that when my dad got back Amy brother would be in trouble, but I also owed him from before so I decided to take the blame.

We are less than twenty-four hours away from the release of Call Of Duty Advanced Warfare. This highly anticipated game is set to come out November third, but people who preorder it will be able to play stating at twelve o'clock tonight. Advanced Warfare is set in the year 2055 when a private military group wages war agents the U.S. beside this not much is known about the campaign, but with Kevin Spacey filling in one of the lead rolls its looks to be excellent. With the laser gun and exo-suits the multiplayer is looking to have a lot of changes to it. I personally am extremely exited for the game release.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson-
Everyone can think of a time that they needed help. When I help other I find that sometimes I’m enriched from the experiences. My family has been fostering children for a long time now and I’ve learned from the experience. When helping take care of the kids we foster I learn a lot about myself. When I was twelve years old my mom got a call saying that we were going to have a foster kid stay with us for a few weeks. All we were told is that it would be a month old baby girl named Victoria.
When Victoria got to our house she looked really small and fragile. My mom wouldn't let anyone carry her. After Victoria's third week with us a lot had changed. My dad brother and I had gone to Road Island to pick up a dog. We found a puppy Great Dane brought home and named her Zoë. At first Victoria was very curios about Zoë pulling on her ears, and grabbing her tail. About the same time we picked up Zoë my mom got another call asking if it would be ok if Victoria stayed with us for a few month we agreed and a four month later Zoë was four feet tail and victoria was learning to crawl. By this time school had ended and I was off to summer camp. When I got back Victoria was still with us and my mom and dad were thinking about adopting. Victoria’s mom kept switching between wanting custody and not. Eventually Victoria’s mom backed out and all we had to do was find her a family. In October 2012 we got a call from Victoria’s social worker that there was a family in Carlyle that was looking to adopt. After meeting with my mom and Victoria they had made their decision to adopt her. Everything went well from there. They invited us to the courthouse the day they signed the papers and we are still good friends with their family today.
Victoria’s story is just one of a few kids that we’ve fostered. If I had to say the hardest thing about being in a foster family it would be seeing the kids go of to their new families. I know that it’s a good thing and I’m happy for the family and the child but the memories I’ve had with the kids makes it hard when they leave. Personal sacrifice is a big part of helping others. You might have to give up your time or money but in the end the experience ends well for all.

My brother has always had my back. I remember the long summers my brother and I would spend with each other at camp. Together my father my brother and I would ride together up through New Hampshire and in to Vermont. We would stop in Woodstock and enjoy the a quick lunch together before we finished our trip in Salisbury. I remember us turning on the wide empty road surrounded by farmland looking towards forest that my cousins uncle and grand father had played. Soon the lake and the mountain and the birch trees would come in to view and finally the camp. The memories of my brother and I at camp will remind me even when I'm mad at him that he will always be there when IU need him.
My older brother Andreas has always played a sort of mind game with me. One day we might be having a great time together then all of a sudden we are the worst of enemies. The craziest part is that two hour after the facts we're friends again. I know that he feels the same way with me. One moment I'm making jokes the next I'm mad with him. I don't know why we used to do this to each other. Lately we haven't disagreed and now I can see how similar we are. I can also now see how compassionate and kind he is. For the first time I remember how he comforted me when I was home sick my first year of camp. How after shooting me in the eye with a nerd gun he built a fort in the basement and we stayed up all night watching movies. Now a days we are the best of friend. We are both past the stupid and pointless argument that we used to have. And now I've learned even more about him how confident he is and how intelligent he is. I also now relies that he is a role model for me.

Everyone can think of a time where they worked with a team. I find it hard to work with a team of people that I haven't got to know yet. School had just started and I did not know many of the people in my class. Though we had been in the same grade for at least a year I had not gotten to know them personally as friends. When my grade went on a class trip to Windsor mountain, a camp in New Hampshire we learned learned a lot about each other and ourselves. We did activities such as a low ropes course which had us work together to complete the challenge. Teamwork is a valuable concept to learn. Teamwork can teach you not only about piers but also about yourself. Teamwork is not something you are born with, you have to learn it and practice it to become a better leader and a better follower. For me teamwork means being able to trust each other and find a common relation.
