When I was 6 I took an overnight train from Houston to Alpine, Texas. Near Alpine there was a town called Terlingua, which is where we stayed. It was a cute, small, ghost town.
It was a mining town in the early 1900s but the company went bankrupt in the 1940s and is pretty abandoned. A lot of people converted buses and old boats into houses which is pretty goofy. The lifestyle was really different in Terlingua due to the lack of services.
I was born in Houston, where I lived for seven years before moving to Vermont, where I lived for seven more years before moving to Roanoke, VA this summer. I started North Cross this year. I decided to go to North Cross because of the pretty campus and education. I play tennis and basketball. I've been to four countries other than America: France, Spain, Andora and Canada. I have a half brother, but I grew up mainly an only child. In the future I would like to get better at French and tennis and eventually go to a good college.
I love the quote: “If winter comes, can spring be far behind?” I think this quote is really cute, it's optimistic and sweet. I like the figurative meaning about things getting better and the literal meaning of spring being soon. I love spring.
