Day at the Construction Site
When I was in elementary school I used to ride my bike constantly. Every day I would ride up to the grocery store and spend fifteen or twenty minutes browsing the candy aisle, deciding whether or not I wanted Starburst or Twix. I also loved feeding spare change into the vending machines outside of Giant Food to get a bag of chips or a pack of gum. One of my favorite places to ride however, had to be the bike path that went around the Sports Pavilion pond in the community, which was about a 10 minute bike ride to go all the way around. Sometimes I would even ride up to Blockbuster and play the Nintendo 64 in the showcase for hours on end.
Building My First Treehouse
It was spring break of seventh grade back in 1997. As a curious 12 year old who didn't have a whole to do except play video games and hang out with friends while school was in recess, I had found a cool place in the woods a few streets down and behind my neighbor's house. My buddies and I used to walk through the woods throwing rocks and sticks like most kids did back in those days, however on this day we had stumbled across a large stack of old wood that looked like it had been torn off the tree and thrown aside unwanted. Now normally I wouldn't have thought anything of it, but there was this growing urge to build my own home away from home. The thought of having my own spot of refuge to go to when I didn't want to deal with parents or schoolwork was overwhelmingly great.
The Elevator Game
Last night I decided to try out Discovery Plus and as an avid Ghost Adventures fan, I was very curious to hear about their most recent investigation of the Cecil Hotel and the disappearance of Elisa Lam. As most people remember, Elisa vanished back in 2013 on a trip from San Diego up to northern California while staying at the Cecil Hotel. Strange footage was released which shows Elisa acting very odd and apparently attempting to interact with some unseen figure outside the camera's range.
