Marguerite Johnson has been waiting on this day all year long; GRADUATION DAY!!! It’s a big accomplishment for her and the people in her community. Marguerite was so excited, so as the people that knew her personally. Her
It was a cold winter night in Upstate New York. My mom and dad were enjoying a cup of coffee, my sisters were playing video games, and I was editing a few pictures on my computer. My mom brought up the idea of a vacation. She said” We haven’t been on a vacation for a long time”. We all agreed and were hoping for my dad to also agree. Then my father said with a cheerful voice “Where do you guys want to go for vacation”. Me and my sister Rahma wanted to go to Florida, but, my other sister Selsibila wanted to go to California. Since Florida is closer and most of us agreed on going to Florida my parents said, “Ok then Florida it is” and we all ran to our rooms to pack up our stuff. My father quickly went on his computer and started looking for a rental. After we packed up all our stuff my dad said” Everyone go to bed, so we can wake up fresh in the morning and get the trip started”. So, we all went to bed. I can barely sleep thinking about all the fun were going to have. After about 15 minutes everyone was sound asleep and so was I.
The title of the most ‘Disorganized, Sporadically Planned, Disaster of an Event of the 2016-2017 School Year,’ must sadly be granted the 2016-17 National Honor Society Induction Ceremony. As a brand new National Honor Society Inductee, I was honored with the chance to attend this prestigious event and found myself leaving dissatisfied and disillusioned. The National Honor Society is a well-respected and important organization in the academic community, one that students work hard to achieve enrollment in and colleges view with respect and admiration. The Induction Ceremony is meant to honor these students dedication and scholastic work ethic and pay homage to the Honor students that have come before us. I had much been looking forward the event as a way to show my family how much effort I have poured into my highschool career. I wanted them to be proud of me.
Morning came and we started are day, we went for a jet ski ride at the beach the beach water was amazing it was so clear and blue I just wanted to stay there all day long after the beach we all went to a resort the resort had lots of different things to do the first thing we did was swim underneath big caves the caves were dark and the water was so cold, after the caves we went snorkeling I have to say that was the best part of the trip I saw tons of different sea creatures I got to touch live stingray even though I was so scared I had to do
High school was an extreme thrill from the first day of my freshman year. As I stepped off the school bus and entered the building, I knew that Brewbaker Technology Magnet High School would be my home for the next four years. BrewTech was ranked the number five school in the state, so I knew I was among the elite and had big shoes to fill. As I began to stroll the halls to locate my class, I was greeted by smiling faces of students and teachers a like. With minor bumps in the road, I completed my freshman year in high school acquiring friends that I still have today. Rumor had it that completing the tenth grade without a drop in my GPA guaranteed me a spot in the 2015 graduating class of BrewTech. Aware of what I was up against, I went into
I had no idea how to feel. I did not cry. I did not speak. I left the cafeteria after half an hour and texted my mom asking to come home.
fun playing beach volleyball and surfing on our boogie boards. Sadly, there was a storm coming, but the good part was that we were getting homemade spaghetti for dinner. The following day we we are heading our way to see NASA. On the way there we saw a huge cruise ship, it was pretty cool. When we got to NASA, they recently changed things and now on no visitors are allowed inside the museum only people who are in the military now can go. That was a bummer, but we still got our pictures taken by the NASA sign. That night we just hung out ate dinner and played games. The few next days just hung out and enjoyed our time together.
Since the 1940’s, times have really changed but we can still draw many similarities as well as many differences between our experiences today and their experience then. For example, In the excerpt “Graduation”, from Maya Angelou’s autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Birds Sing, similarities and difference can be found between Angelou’s graduation and my high school graduation. Maya Angelou’s and my experience with graduation are similar regarding family involvement and nervousness. However, our experiences were very different in the ways others treated the graduating class and the feelings leading up to graduation and the feelings after graduation.
The summer was almost over went I realized that in a couple of weeks I will be in my new school that is not anymore a school, now we are talking about a college. When the times came I was on an airplane, on my way to Texas. My feelings were really emotional because I was living my hometown, the city that I grow up and never left for too long, on other hand, I was really excited because I was doing what it was right for me. I had a scholarship to play baseball and study for free.

High School is a turning point for everyone at our age, social dynamics and education continue to change as we advance into different fields of interest. I branched into a variety of clubs to get a feel for what I may have a passion for. Entering into the Art Society, Interact, Autistic Painters, National Honors Society, Multicultural Club, etc., I became most involved in DECA. DECA is a marketing club made to enhance communication, marketing, and professional ethics and skills. I attended the district competition every year and always moved forward into states, however, I never applied myself. I was an average kid who chose not to study or act like I cared because of what other people think. I pretended not to care when my name was never called for an
Talking about graduating high school always seemed unrealistic because it was such a huge goal. After graduation, I had never felt so proud of myself. I had just completed
Each year, Graduation Rites, Commencement Exercises, Moving Up Ceremonies (whatever you may call them) bring profound joy not only to the students but most of all to the parents and guardians who are always working hard to provide for their children the best catholic education. St. John Bosco Academy has given to our beloved country and to the Universal Church graduates who have been formed and taught in a Christian way, who continue to bring honor to this Institution, and who are still standing tall in the society making St. John Bosco proud.
My son, Bourbon, and I had a really fun and eventful Saturday this past weekend. We were able to get some shopping done, get in some play time along with lots of laughter. Being able to see him have such a good time is what makes all of the hard work I do worth it.
Today was the day Mom, dad, my big sister and I were going on vacation.
