It never is smart to cut across private property at night. It was late, but when my friends and I broke down at a desert party, our options were limited. We were miles from the freeway, so we had to trek through the dirt roadways, that eventually brought us to the government canals at the edge of the city. We were still miles from the main city lights, so we decided to cut across some barbwire fencing. This allowed us to cross a farm field, one that appeared to be mostly used for livestock, probably horses and cows. We made it almost a quarter mile across the field, but our luck had run out. My buddies and I heard the sound of a shotgun. We thought we were dead, especially when two of us were hit. As we ran, it became obvious that we had been shot with rock salt.
A few years ago I spent an afternoon at the world famous Chelsea Flower Show and saw a display of award-winning evergreen instant hedges. Ever since that day, I’ve always wanted to have beautiful thick hedges just like that around the front and back gardens of my house all year round. So recently, when I came across a wonderful variety of evergreen hedges at my local garden center I couldn’t wait to order mine and get planting.
If you choose an instant hedge that has been created from the right type of shrubs, it’s an awesome way to add an evergreen element to your garden. After all, who wants to spend several months a year staring out onto a dry and dead-looking garden if you don’t have to? Choose a yew, laurel or holly hedge, for instance, and you will end up with a beautiful green garden all year round.
I am 21 years-old, and while other people are out partying, I am planning my future. I am young, but I have learned that life moves very fast. That is why I believe that it is very important for people to start planning and preparing for the future early. I am currently taking venepuncture training courses so that I can earn my phlebotomy license. I will be done very soon and will have completed one major life goal.
I want to work as a phlebotomist for at least two years so that I will be able to get some experience. After that, I want to attend a technical college and get my nursing degree. One of my goals is to become a pediatric nurse. After I earn my nursing license, I want to work in a pediatrician’s office. Additionally, I eventually want to get married and start a family of my own.
Last year this time, I hurt my back. Lets just say, I was trying to be an over achiever at the gym. My doctor said I’d sprain my lumbar disc and that It would take a few weeks to recover. This was very discouraging, because I’d had a trip planned the following month. I was worried I’d might not make it. A friend of mine stopped by to check on me, we had been friends for the last three years, since I started working at the law firm.
I was in severe pain, so she told me to turn and lay on my stomach. She begin to rub her hands together, and breath. I thought this is very strange, but that was no surprised. She was always very New age spiritual. She began to gently rub my spine, and hovered her hands over my lower back area. I finally was freaked enough, to ask what she was doing. I thought she was performing some type of spell, or prayer.
She told me it was the ancient practice of channeling energy to heal. She called this reiki Auckland. I went along with it, and for the next 15 minutes she continued. I told her it probably wouldn’t work for me, as I grabbed my cup and walked into the kitchen. I got some wine from the bottom cabinet. She said really? Where you able to walk earlier? I stood in shock, because I could barely even sit up this morning, and I was pain free.
