Often, even now that I’m an online student I find myself wondering, how cool it would’ve been to enjoy the life as a college student? The atmosphere and football season really had my gears yearning for the experience single-handedly. Instead of taking my fancies seriously, I managed to become the employee who settled for “6 o’clock mornings”, endured twelve, sometimes sixteen hour days to eventually pick-up a check not worth cashing after Uncle Sam received his
This speech was made for the class of 2014. By that year, Ed Helms was well known for his work on The Daily Show, The Office and The Hangover (trilogy) films.

And finally, in his speech, he also applied pathos which is the emotional quality of the speech or text that makes it persuasive to the audience.
As an upcoming freshman in college I have realized many things looking back at my high school career, and home life outside of school. I use to wish for time to speed up so I could hurry and become my own person, a young adult and now I will truly miss it but I know my time was well spent because I used it wisely by partaking in opportunities to better myself, and spending my time wisely In and outside of school. I can truly say I tried all throughout school to find new ways to get involved with my school, community, and people around me. But I really would have to give all of my success up to this point to my mother, from being the vice president of drama club up to getting getting my part time job to which I have been committed to for almost
As I look back on my journey to college, I faced many different problems and disadvantages even before taking my first steps on campus. In Linda Banks-Santilli’s “Guilt is one of the biggest struggles first-generation college students face” many first generation students view being the first one in the family as a major flaw before entering college (Banks-Santilli, 2015, Par. 4 &7). The lack of self-respect makes it difficult for students to achieve success without help or motivation. The students have to change their viewpoint about being the first to go to college in their family as a weakness and make it a strength to help motivate them to be better students.
Additionally, in the movie Pitch Perfect, Beca goes to college and her dad really wants her to join a club or sport, so she decides to join the Barden Bellas. The Bellas may have some ups and downs, but they manage to stay together and win the acapella championship. Throughout the movie, the group of girls show many instances where they disagree on something, but through all the arguing they still keep the group together because they realize how much each one means to them. Another movie that has funny and loyal characters is The Fast and The Furious. In this movie, a group of family-friends try to commit crimes and race cars without getting caught or killed, but in the middle of all of it they let an outsider into the group without knowing he is a cop.

First of all, in Kohn’s essay, after the students gained admission into colleges their mindset of pursing traditional rewards only continued as now they were now worried about finding jobs instead of improving grades. For instance, Kohn writes that, students in university would “scan the catalogue for college courses that promised easy A’s… They’d define themselves as pre-med, pre-law, pre- business… nose stuck into the future, ever more frantic…until, perhaps, they might wake up one night in a tastefully appointed bedroom to discover their lives were mostly gone” (Paragraph,8). Even with the acceptance into universities, students still are not satisfied with their lives, justifies chasing accolades as a repeating cycle. Secondly, in Barwick’s essay, pursing only the tangible reward becomes Mr. Burns’s long term problem while discarding anything else that comes in his way. For example, during the bowling game “winning the worthless bowling trophy is more important to him than the sweet, albeit momentary, pleasure of a group of jocular friends [brings to a person] and in the end everything turns out to bore him” (Paragraph, 4).

“What happens when a picture reveals what we can’t say, when art is truer than life, and how falling in love is easy, except when it’s not” (Tregay, 2014). In a judgmental society it is often difficult to fit in, but even more difficult to embrace what makes you stand out. Sarah Tregay explores the difficulty of expressing yourself in high school, in her novel Fan Art. Fan Art follows Jamie, a senior in high school, as he deals with one of the most terrifying feelings known to all high school students, falling for your best friend. Although the novel was a heartwarming and fun read, it was definitely not my favorite.
2 I can 't help laughing at the fashions of my college days, when the girls wore knee socks and loafers, and the boys decked themselves out in tweed jackets and challis ties. 3 Too many students come to San Francisco State only for to have fun, to find a partner, or to put off the idea of getting a job. 4 Her job as assistant director involved selecting props, prompting actors, and casting extras. 5 I wanted to not only travel to Paris but also visit London. 6 Those taggers who continue to deface private property will find themselves reimbursing the cost of the damages to the owner, serving twenty-five hours of community service, and paying $100 fine to help pay for graffiti removal.
In high school, the uttermost important goal for me is to attend college and pursuing my dream of studying forensics, and eventually taking that success and finding a way to give back to the community and people that raised me. The CBC Spouses Education Scholarship will help me acquire the funds to achieve my goal in the long run. I have always been determined and an all round optimist.

If I cannot work through college and cannot afford my books, unfortunately, all of my hard work will go down the drain.
