As a senior, I get to experience a whole lot of new things. One of which is how Matt, Carrie, and I went to New Orleans for the Best Buddies Spring Break.
The drive there was fun because I got to watch some of my movies, like Battleship and Finding Nemo. Matt and Carrie are awesome to hang out with. I’ve known both of them for a long time and I’m glad we’re friends. They are some of the best friends I’ve ever had. No matter where we go, we’ll always have a lot going on.
The things we saw were amazing. The aquarium was my favorite. We also looked at some buildings that were destroyed by Katrina. Katrina was one of the worst tragedies that happened to New Orleans. It was hard to see the buildings, but it reminded me of what happened to us here in Nashville during the flood.
While we were there, we helped a church that my sister is involved in. We helped the kids out by cooking and building bookshelves, but I like cooking more! I cooked quiche and chicken potpie. I think the kids really liked it, especially the quiche, which I was excited about. The kids we were helping go to different schools. They church is trying to expand their program to a bigger house.
I got to hang out with all of the Best Buddies, and see my brother and sister again! I’m glad I got to see them because it’s been awhile. I had a really good time. With the Best Buddies I watched movies, hung out, got to know one another. Sometimes we got lost, but it was ok! While we were at the aquarium, we saw an orange fish, and we joked that we found Nemo!
Coming back was hard because it was so cold here in Nashville! I can’t wait to go back again. It may be awhile, but I know that I’ll go back no matter what.
