    Texas. When most propel think Texas the are thing horses, desserts, dust balls, and cowboys. No… No…. NO! They do exist just not in the majority of the area. Texas is a beautiful state to live in and to visit.
    Austin is one of the most coolest city’s in the USA and is one of the fastest growing. Austin is known as the “Live Music Capitol of The World” because of all the artist and shows that are played here. SXSW (South By South West) is one of the biggest music festivals in the world and people from different countries come for a week to listen to all the music. In Austin you pretty much live and breathe music.
    Another thing is Austin is well known for is the lake. Austin is pretty much based off the lake. People use it for recreation and for every day nessesities. The lake is also used for naming schools. Lake Travis, and Westlake are the two main high schools with lake in them. When they play each other the game is know as the “Battle of The Lakes” and it’s always and exciting, emotional, intense game.
    Austin is a great place to call home and to raise a family. Austin has been my home for the past 13 years and I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. Austin is a great city and if you ever think about visiting Texas, well Austin’s always here.


  2. Compassion

    March 5, 2014 by hopev227

    During the “Phantom of the Opera” we learned at the end about Christine showing compassion twords the Phantom by kissing him. She shows him that not every person in this world is horrible. Watching these dramatic scenes in the movie are just heart wrenching. I was crying as I watched. Compassion is a very important and very beautiful thing in life. If we don’t have compassion twords people or things we really don’t care. In my life I’ve been shown so much compassion. When I was born my mom couldn’t take care of me and put me up for adoption. She did that so I could have a better chance in life with a good family because she knew it took a mom and a dad to raise a child. Without her doing what she did, who knows were I could be right now. I’ve also been shown compassion by many of my friends. Last year was a difficult year for me and instead of leaving me and going you’re on your own 2 of my clostest friends made sure I was ok and that I was gonna make it. They didn’t run away and hide. They made sure that nothing was going to happen to me. Without them my life would be not even close to as amazing as it is today. Compassion is a beautiful thing that we all need to have. Because if we didn’t have compassion we wouldn’t know what love and grace is. Compassion is one of the most important things in this world and I hope in the years to come more people would be shown the compassion I was shown and more.
