A place that I feel perfectly content is where I know that I’m home. However, I don’t quite consider myself to have the same definition of “home” as others. I’ve spent my eighteen years of life as a notorious newcomer. I have no hometown, I have no childhood friends, and the longest time I’ve lived anywhere was six years. I often feel like a chameleon being forced to adapt to different places and environments in order to survive. Yet, due to this experience I have obtained a valuable gift. I have realized that home, for me, isn’t necessarily pulling up to a house with a white picket fence and a mailbox with my family name painted on it. Home, for me, is something I carry within myself from Aurora to Castle Rock to Denver to London to Salt Lake City and so forth. While living in London, I had the opportunity to experience many different cultures, but none impacted my life quite like when I traveled to the Maasai Mara desert in Kenya. In western culture, the slightest deviation from what is considered socially acceptable can so easily turn a teenage girl into a social outcast, which is certainly not a feeling that correlates with the feeling of home. Those who consider home to be a place of birth, an institution, or a household would be utterly astonished at how perfectly content the villagers of Kenya were in what we would consider a “nomadic state.” While watching these villagers moving from village to village, following herds, and building new mud-huts, I observed a beautiful thing. Along with their woven baskets carrying the little amount of items they owned, they carried with them an incredible love for each other that no place could strip from them. The following year my family once again called the movers, packed our lives into cardboard boxes and shipped them across the ocean to a place called Salt Lake City, Utah. Feeling that once again I had been cheated out of a home, moving became like a leech that was sucking the life from me. Despite the…

day. This record still stands today.
Recently the A’s wanted to move to a new location that would provide them with a fresh start and hopefully eager fans wanting to buy tickets. One of the major obstacles preventing the Oakland Athletics form moving and becoming the San Jose Athletics is the dispute over territorial rights. Ever since the 1990’s the bay area has been territorialized and divided by individual counties. The Giants controlling most of the west side of the bay area had been looking…
AMERICA MOVING WEST
With the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869 the United States was stitched together from east to west, this drove down travel costs and brought an end to the dangerous era of traveling by covered wagons along the old trails. The railroads increased the rate at which the west could be settled and by connecting markets increased the size of the nation’s economy, for the first time in American history freight could be shipped from the eastern seaboard all the…

Moving Nana In
My grandmother had been living on her own since 1992, which is the year my grandfather passed away. She was always active, and had more of a social life than I did. One of her favorite things to do was go to Foxwoods on the bus with all her friends to play bingo. She also took daily walks downtown on her own. My father was checking in on her one day and noticed that her stomach was distended. He called my mother saying she looked as…

In the house, there was nothing. No furniture, no food, no décor, nobody. Everything they owned was sitting in their front lawn. Even their cats, were boxed up in their perspective crates, already gone. The moving truck was an hour late. The mother and her daughter had gone half an hour ago to catch their flight to Bangor, leaving Gordon and his son, Cal who was three at the time. They would drive some of their stuff…
melting and boiling points as well as making the substance hard and brittle (since distortion will break bonds and cause repulsion).
• There are also strong intramolecular bonds (covalent) and non-conductors in any state as there are no free moving electrons, everything is tightly bound in the lattice.
• They are also insoluble in water.
• Separate Molecular structure, all electrons are localized to individual molecules and are not free, therefore not electrical…

The Expansion of The West
The western expansion made a huge impact on the new settlers as well as the Natives. The experience for the natives was mostly unpleasant while the settlers were able to adapt to their new way of life in the west. The laying of the railroad opened new territory for the white settlers and changed the Native Americans’ way of living. People migrated west…
Moving to America
Coming to America was always a dream, I never thought I could make it. Everybody that I know would love to come, they all wanted to feel like an American. They want to come so bad so bad that they risked their lives by coming to boat, some died to come, and here I am, I remember the day when I knew I was coming to America that was one of the happiest day of my life. I was very happy because America would give me a lot of opportunity: financially, spiritually, and…
