I'm planning to attend my grandmother's memorial mass in the Dominican Republic.As a sign of respect to my grand mother, my family members are going to celebrate a mass monthly for the first year.My mother called me to tell me about her plans for the mass.I'm not excited about this trip because I'm going to remember this sad event.My consolation is that I'm going to see my family and i will support my mother emotionally during this difficult time.

My mom called me tonight. She is very disappointed of my brother's actions .My brother has not attended his classes for three days this semester .I'm mad with him because he doesn't take advantage of the opportunities that he has.I spoke to him and explained that attending college is more difficult for me than will ever be for him.I wish that i could attend collage in my country.

One of the most difficult moments in my life was when I learned about my mother's illness. Four years ago she was diagnosed with diabetes. At that moment I was devastated because I thought that this illness was a death sentence. I didn't know much about diabetes. I read and investigated this illness and I learned that people with diabetes could live normal lives as long they follow a diet, take medication and are regularly monitored by a doctor. My mother is doing well and with God’s Blessing she is going to continue to live a normal and healthy life.

My favorite sport is baseball. In my country, baseball is the most popular sport.When i was a kid i used to play baseball. Many baseball players in the United States are from the Dominican Republic and that makes me feel proud. In my country during the baseball season i always watched or went to the games. I loved to support my favorite team by attending their games.

i read and heard about the times square bomb scare. On Saturday may 1, 2010 a man parked in the middle of times square an SUV containing a bomb. Thanks god that civilians and cops were able to work together and stopped this car bomb before it was too late. We live in the greatest city in the word and I hope that authorities continue to protect us the way they do.

When i was a child my favorite character was bugs bunny.Every day when i arrived home from school i watched bugs bunny cartoons with my sister.I remember spending two hours every day watching cartoons. My mom was always telling me to do my homework first and then i could watch cartoons. I loved Bug's personality.I also thought the way he treated Daffy Duck was funny.
