Memorable events for me in 2008

  • May 31 - Watching my sister graduate from high school. This was from Saint Margaret’s School in Tappahannock, Virginia. 
  •  June 13 - The last day of my freshman year of high school. Spending part of it with what was an awesome English class.

  •  July 13 - When I saw Anna at the pool and my brother and sister got mad at me cause I stayed at the pool and two hours longer than they wanted to. 
  • July 17 - Taking that boring Geometry class and during our 10 minute break, we took a 45 minute break and ditched the class with the new friends I made. It was awesome doing that. July 23 - Winning my family’s inaugural summer tournament “Beach Bash ’08” with my brother and sister. 
  • July 28 - Making the movie Benjamin Meadow with Garrick and Garrett. Ben Field knows he loves the movie. 
  •  July 30 - Apparently I was sleeping at the pool and Rachel Metz claimed to see me, but she was scared to wake me up. 
  •  August 4 - Having to come home from Goshen early because of the e. coli outbreak at the camp. Thankfully I was a-ok. 
  •  August 10 - Getting back home from going to New Jersey with Dillon Nold, my brother’s friend. It was fun, but I was mad I didn’t get to bring any friends with me. My parents would think I would bring too many people.

  • September 24 - Turning 16, it was an awesome birthday. So many people remembered and I got some awesome gifts from friends and family. 
  •  October 4 - The Order of the Arrow Ordeal. It sucked, but I got into an Honor Society. 
  •  October 12 - Clifton Day. Had to campaign in an historical election supporting Obama, Warner and Conelley who all won their elections. I got all my AP Government hours that day campaigning with Michael Callo, Ben Johnson, Tim Ferrell and Dillon Meyer. I also saw Laura and Ada there which was cool.

  • November 22 - Getting to go paint balling for the first time in two years even though my gun kept malfunctioning.
