  • Moving to the USA is something that I dreamed a lot about when I was a kid. I used to hear a lot of beautiful stories about how the USA is a country where “milk and honey flow.” I used to watch a lot of Ame […]

  • Every day I wake up, I’m thankful because I don’t know if I was to wake up the next. I eat, drink, breath just like any other human being, but I don’t know how my body is going to receive all that stuff I just put […]

    For this week’s blog, I’m going to be talking about one of my favorite Haitian songs titled “m vle parenn.” in this song, Wanito (the author of this poem) tells about a dream that he had after taking and pass […]

    • Interesting discussion of this song. Do you think that Wanito wrote it as a warning to young men and women to avoid unwanted pregnancies?

      • in my opinion, I think that Wanito wrote it as way to help young men and young woman to understand the danger of getting and being pregnant especially if the man is unable to take of himself, the girl, and the baby. He advised us to first focus on school, and have a profession to support yourself and your future family before even thinking about getting a girl pregnant.

  •                 I have decided to do my art analysis essay on Manifest destiny. It is one of the most famous paintings in the United States, and I found it to be interesting. It was painted in 1872 by John Gast a […]

    • Walter, talking about Manifest Destiny is a great idea. We have discussed this image everywhere. During high school, you probably talked about this image a lot. We even talk about this image in African Studies. It’s a great image and you have a lot to talk about. Great Choice.

  • Every past week, I wrote a blog post about my boring experiences. This week, I don’t know what to write about. I guess I’m going to be writing some more about soccer.

    Watching soccer in Haiti, is one of the mos […]

    • I love your description of decoding the shouts of other fans as they watch the game, the fact that you can track the game through the fans’ reaction to it. Good use of examples in this blog post to show the importance of soccer in Haiti. You do a nice job of not just telling that it is important, but showing that it is.

  • When I was in 5th grade, I had the desire to play soccer for my class’s team. At the time, I was really fast. I used to have about 10 students around my age run after me and if they caught me; I promised them t […]

    • I started as a goalkeeper too. It was a struggle to play as a starter without being the goalkeeper. I didn’t know anything how to play or anything. Being a goalkeeper wasn’t bad at all; I made so many saves and I loved when my teammates just came and praise me. In my head, I was the last line of defense and the best defender. Great Job!!

    • Thats great When I first started soccer, I was also the last to be picked. At the time I did not know how to properly dribble,pass,shoot,etc. Over time practice made me good enough to compete at the school level. This goes to show hard work and determination prove a lot. Thank you for the post it brought back some great memories of high school and great job at attaining your goal!

  • Scoring goals feels awesome. It’s awesome when you are winning because it makes you feel like a hero. The hero who scored the winning goal for his/her team. Scoring goals not only makes you feel good as player, i […]

    • Congrats on your first goal! I’m glad to hear that it made you feel like a more confident player. I really like how you drag out the word “Goallllll!!!!” in this post. It is fun and it brings your reader more fully into your experience of the game.

    • congrats on your goal first goal or score to any sports means a lot. to start it off it shows that you belong and that you have the potential to be a all-start player someday. You had a reason to be hyped over the goal you made and also the fact that you played a role you usually don’t play and scored on it shows a lot of potential again congrats bro on the score, you are very talented when it comes to soccer and I have seen it. Congrats again.

  • The Nightmare
                I’m about to jump off a cliff. The reasons why are uncertain because I didn’t know what was running was after me. My mouth started to fill up with hot saliva because I saw death face to […]

    • Lots of great description in this blog post! You do a good job of conveying your panic at being pursued by this unknown person. Your last paragraph is also great–I like how you shift from terror to relief.

    • I can relate with this Walter. I dream about a lot of things, but I dream about running from nothing the most. When I wake up I just thank god that is a dream because I’ve experienced it in the real world and is not fun. Good Job!!. Keep moving forward Walter.

    It’s Saturday morning. I had a game at 12AM but, I was required to get to the field at 11AM to warm up before our first game. I woke at 6AM but, decided to go back to sleep because it was too early. The ne […]

    • I am glad to hear that your first game went so well (after I few hiccups getting there). I don’t blame you for feeling hungry and tired the first half of the game (I’m starving by noon, even when I haven’t been running around a soccer field). It is awesome that you were able to get back into the game in the second half.

  • Walter Darby St Cilien is my name. I am from one of the little islands in the Caribbean (Haiti). I moved to the United States three years ago, with my dad and my sister.

    Soccer is my favorite sport. It’s my p […]

    • Which country would you rather prefer? Haiti or the United States. I am also from the Caribbean island, but I am from Jamaica instead of Haiti. Since you love to play soccer, why didn’t you tryout or play soccer for the college this year. From what you have said in your introduction, I think you would have a chance of making the team. You never know maybe one day you would actually get to play on the same team with your favorite player.

    • Walter we both love soccer, but I might have to disagree with your opinion. Real Madrid is a good team and maybe the best team in the world (for now), but they aren’t at Barcelona level when Barcelona is playing at their best. Another thing, the best player in the world and history of soccer is Leonel Messi. I still love the blog and great job!

    • Walter I think you got a real passion there, you should pursue it for as long as possible man. I’ve seen you play before as well, and I think you got a a real neck for soccer. keep pursuing soccer and I know for a fact that you will play with both those great athletes someday. keep up the good work and never loose the passion to play the passion you have for soccer may just lead to you to play in a serious competition field someday.
