When I was three years old, I learned the alphabet.
Students who are members of our virtual chapters may work full-time, have children, or other responsibilities that make it difficult for them to attend traditional on-campus classes. Brown and green watery eyes watched me board the plane that would fly me out of Oregon and to Texas.
Knots twisted my stomach as fear mixed with anticipation for what was to come. Sitting down in the blue clothed chair, I listened attentively to the flight attendant give the safety instructions in case there was trouble aboard.
As I struggled to figure out how to buckle myself, I felt anxiety at this newer experience mixed with anticipation for what was to come.
The Most Memorable Experience in My Life Since I am a high school student, somebody might say I have my entire life ahead of me, with all of its beautiful experiences. But despite being so young, I already have a personal breathtaking experience, which I am sure I will carry with me until my last days: my first hike to the mountains. First, my experience in college has given me a chance to sharpen my skills in my field of choice. There have been, and there will continue to be, many opportunities to learn more ways of improving my craft as a result of my time in school, which I am truly thankful for. My experiences with reading and writing My earliest recollections of both my reading and writing experiences are not pleasant and to date these experiences have not changed. Prior to my kindergarden days my mother would teach me at home the letters of the alphabet in the hope that my entry into school life would me smoother.
As the engine kicked in, my hands grasped the arm rests and my eyes drifted to the oval window as the runway began to disappear. The opportunity to travel outside the northwest excited me; little did I realize how much of this the military would provide for me. Not even two years into my enlistment I was given my first notification that I was set to deploy to the Middle East.
This notification was one of many that followed through the years. Notifications for following deployments, moves, and short trips were in no short supply over the next ten years. The constant change and separation from my family was a struggle at first, as I sought familiarity and an outlet for my mental state.
Writing became my answer. Although I scribbled down notes at a much younger age, thirteen was the age I started to put those notes together to form a book. This task and connection to my pre-military life was, and still is, a stability in my whirlwind of a chaotic life. With my fictional tale, this outlet provided me a means to work through my own problems as I developed characters who I later realized were experiencing similar struggles to my own.
Google, I will say, was a wonderful and terrible tool as I tried to learn all the weaves of how to self-publish and the differences between multiple publishing avenues. The benefit I love the most when it comes to writing in the military, is all the different experiences and places I get to visit firsthand and in turn, include in my writing.
For instance, when I went rock climbing in New Mexico I was able to transform a scene with my main character in a similar situation. I was able to describe with detail, her going from skimming down the rock face to clinging with her fingertips and toes, angling her body against cracks and the true fear one would face without a rope!
When I moved to England even more of these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities benefited my writing. Visiting castles, caves, and forests helped me to visualize places I never could have imagined.
This, in truth, makes the separation from the familiar even more motivating as I now try to find out how I can incorporate these things into my work. For example, after learning there was no rainbow with a pot of gold in Ireland, I persevered and visited where Bram Stoker wrote Dracula!My relationship with books and reading has not been the greatest adventure for me thus far.
I will not say that all my experience has been terrible but for the most part not that great. I know for me it started when I was little and unfortunately it has carried to my adulthood.
