Conditions of Use
Drowning in Money
By Autumn Egan
Have you ever thought if you got everything you wanted you would not need anything else? Well you’re wrong W-R-O-N-G wrong! I have everything I want and it’s not fun! My dad is the creator of Beckham Software. The life of a billionaire’s daughter was fun, but now I’m 13 and bored sick of getting everything I want. All I really need is a friend. By the way, my name is Julia Beckham. I have no mom and no friends. All I have is a boring selfish dad!
I wish I could just live a life of an ordinary girl living in a small house, going to a public school and having a normal life.
That’s it! I’m running away from this life! Bang! The screen door slammed on the butler, as I ran out the door. I galloped down the U shaped driveway, gravel slipping in my socks. I knew I wasn’t going to make it too far in a pink satin dress with pink bows arranged across the brim of the dress ballet flats and a headband on my head.OWW!
I slammed into something that looked like a stout short tree and blacked out. When I woke up, I found myself on a cedar bunkbed with a black bag of ice plopped on my head. When I sat up, I peered slowly around the cabin, I thought of how much of a dump this is! Clothing scattered around the floor, heaps of trash bags piling up in a corner of the room. All of a sudden, a cluster of children rushed in with artwork and bugs in their hands. Then I thought, oh great, my dad did not want me anymore, so he sent me to a camp that I would have to stay at forever! Then I realized that if I stay here I would have friends and fun things to do! That was when I knew I found my home, my real home.
It turns out I did stay at that camp forever and my dad never came looking for me! I don’t care! I have many friends and Joan, she’s like our mom except even better!
I thought to myself, this is the best thing that’s happened to me and turned out the light.

Hi I am in 3rd grader and I’m 8 years old and I love animals. My favorite thing to do is be outside. Soccer is also fun for me. Every year my family and I do the polar bear swim.
