12: Journal Entry #2 June 19th Today is Friday. Yesterday I had a stomachache so I didn't get out and I didn't get out. But today, I went to play hockey with my friend Justin Bieber. We were friends before he became famous and it was nice because he originally wanted to be a professional hockey player and just look at where his journey has taken him. We went to a restaurant and he reserved the whole place so that way we didn't get jumped by his "Beliebers." They are some crazy fans! Well it was just so nice to reunite with an old friend. | www.fatronomy.com

16: A Journey That has has the Biggest Impact on my Life | In 6th grade, I went on a journey to Mexico. This journey had a major impact on my life because I got to know the town I came from which happens to be Hidalgo del Parral, Chihuahua. Parral is a pretty small town. At first I felt so weird, I felt like I didn't even belong there, it was such a difference from Kansas City to Parral, it was like going to Mars or something. As I stayed there longer, I got to see how people lived, how sometimes you couldn't even have water to take a shower, all those little things that I used to take for granted, I learned to appreciate. Going to Parral made me a better and more mature person, and it also changed the way I see stuff.
17: Conclusion | Hopefully, in the future, you decide to travel to the beautiful city of London. London is a very interesting place with some of the nicest people. If you do end up going, try to go during the summer, after all, London is known for its gorgeous summers! While you're there, make sure you check out the museums and the parks if you're looking for family fun!
