Dear all -
My name is Ronald Huereca and I live in the smallest town on Earth (not really) called Springfield, CO. I guess it was bad luck how I got here, but that's a long story. Anyways I guess this is where I have to write down where I'm from and how I got here.
I was born in Lubbock, Texas, but quickly moved to Tonapah, Nevada shortly after my birth. That is where I lived until I was 6. When I was 6, I moved with my brother, sister, mom, and dad to the Philippines. I lived in Angeles City, near Clark Air Base, but I went to school at the base. I went to Wurtsmith Elementary School until I was finished with 4th grade. We left when I was ten because of Mt. Pinatubo. Mt. Pinatubo was a volcano that was about 10 miles from Clark Air Base, and it erupted. So around late June of '91 was when I moved back to the United States.
When we were evacuated, my dad was forced to stay, but we had to go. My mom chose to go to Las Vegas, Nevada, where my youngest brother was born. We were promptly relocated, and we spent 4 years in Las Vegas. At the end of my Eigth Grade year, I went to live with my dad in Fairbanks, Alaska (My mom and dad divorced after the Philippines). I stayed up there for two years, then went back to live in Las Vegas. Then one lucky afternoon, my mom decided to relocate to Springfield, CO. Where? Yeah, Springfield, CO. That's where here mommy lives.
Well, when I arrived in the EXTREMELY small town, we were so devestated. My mom brought my brother Jacob, my sister Stephanie, and my brother's friend Joe along. We had a horrible moving experience, but I'd rather not go into that. However, when we arrived, we were bored to death. We would stand in awe, because there isn't really that much to do in Springfield, CO.
Well, when I started my Senior year at Springfield, CO, I was taking this computer class, and our coach, Mrs. Hund, thought it would be a great idea to enter the contest called Thinkquest. "What's that?" I said. Well, I soon figured it out.
I guess it was ironic that I saw Saving Private Ryan a few weeks before, so when we picked our subject, it was either World War I or World War II. When we picked our subject, we decided on how available our sources would be. Man did we get in over our heads. There's a lot of stuff on World War II!!! But I learned more than I ever would. I'm glad I know more about a subject than any history teacher ever would.
