However, I didn’t want to try out for a new team and leave my comfort zone with my friends on the REAL Sliver. My dad told me to give Athletico a try and that’s what I ended up doing even though I didn’t really want to. I went out onto the field very nervous and intimidated for the first day of tryouts.
Remenzel begged the administrators of the school to let Eli in, but they said no. This results in the end of the reign of Remenzels at Whitehill. The mistake to fix in this part of the story is that Eli’s parents act like they are royalty at Whitehill, at the end, Eli says, “A Remenzel asked for something---as though a Remenzel were something special…” (Page 8) They decide that no Remenzel will ever come to Whitehill school, but still have a bad reputation.
“The Hero doesn’t Get the Reward; the Hero Pays the Price” (anon). One of the heroes who paid the dear price was Odysseus, a hero who fought in The Trojan War. Odysseus was the man who came up with the plan to build the wooden horse, ending the rigorous fight with it. Odysseus was going back home after earning the victory for his country, which he was king of one of the kingdoms -Ithaca-. But Odysseus faced trials that constrained him ten years late to arrive home.
In modern day society, dropping out of any school whether it be college or high school is frowned upon. From a young age, most children are told by parents, teachers and mentors that if they drop out of school they will go nowhere in life. Most students do not drop out of elementary or middle school, but as they progress into high school and college some of them will decide that furthering their education is not for them. In Alex Kern’s blog post Don’t Drop Out, he makes several good arguments for leaving school, but he shows that he is strongly in favor of school and graduating by talking about how each field of study has worth, school pushing an individual out of his/her comfort zone is a good thing and how good students do not need to teach
The Heroic Traits of Odysseus The epic poem written by Homer, The Odyssey, is about Odysseus who is a well soldier and commander in the Trojan War. The war lasted for ten years. Odysseus is ready to go home to his wife, Penelope and son, Telemachus, but many obstacles come his way. Odysseus exemplifies being a hero through the acts of leadership, being strategic, and being intelligent on his journey home to Ithaca.
I immediately registered for the next government class and thought it would be another interesting class. Not many students have an opportunity to study government during the most intense and exciting time in America - the presidential race. Considering it is an Honors class, I thought it would be a challenge with many assignments and exams that are due weekly. By taking my academic progress to a new level, I wanted to challenge my time-management skill and improve my writing skill; I also want to get a special recognition from the Honors institution on my transcript and separate myself from other students. Before taking the Texas Government class, I did not know that states
And a leader does not let themselves down just because my school did not choose me as a nominee I did not give up I proceeded and well I got nominated by my summer job Where I worked in the courthouse. I believe this shows how I can persevere and always tried to overcome the obstacle for me. I remember the night I got home and i open my computer to see my email and I see an email from Posse saying that I was nominated I was so happy I could not stop smiling.
He also provides the leadership characteristic with making men follow his every move and really questioning him. Most importantly he almost perfectly follows Joseph Campbell's hero cycle. Odysseus call to adventure is ten years after the trojan war has ended and odysseus is helplessly trapped on Calypso's island, Ogygia. Calypso is madly in love with odysseus and unwilling to let him leave and furthermore Odysseus has no ship or crew to help him get home. As Odysseus dreams of being home with his wife and son they are fighting off suitors who have come to pillage odysseus land and try to marry his wife penelope.
I had always thought how amazing it would be to be the one to lead the marching band, be the band director's right hand, represent the group, the one everyone looks up to. Being selected as a co-drum major, I did not realize the plethora of responsibility I would have during my first year of leading. I was not exactly respected by the entire ensemble considering I was only a junior. At that time, I was practically training for when the time came to lead the band alone. Considering that this is now my second year leading, I behave differently as well as being treated antithetically compared to the ensemble; the band considers me as the "mom".
I have had a very difficult time adjusting to college because I knew how to take advice about asking for help and not actually asking for help when I needed it. During my freshman year, this was a great problem and this resulted in me ending the year with a low GPA and losing my scholarship. The wake-up call came when my strong mother broke down after I told her I had lost my scholarship and that she had to pay out of pocket for me to attend an expensive institution. Although I could have dropped out and attended the community college near my home, my mother reminded me that this was my one and only shot at a college education. For the next two semesters, I worked hard and brought my GPA above a 3.0 which helped me regain my scholarship.
Two months earlier, I knew what I wanted to do; I wanted to run for Senior Class President. I never really saw myself as the popular kid, and this is kind of the stereotype for senior class presidents, but I was determined to try. Only one person was running against me, so this was a head to head. I thought of myself as the better candidate, as I think I’ve always stood up for the students of Hebron. Hours went into making posters, into meeting people, and anything else I could think of that might give me that slight edge up.
Most ninth graders do not want to draw attention to themselves at school. This is why I even surprised myself that my freshman year I ran for treasurer of Key Club. Being Treasurer would not only mean that I was in charge of the money, but also that I would have to stand in front of an auditorium full of students and talk to them about upcoming events and dates. Just a few years earlier, I never would have had the courage to do this. I have come so far from who I used to be and it is all because of performing.
While attending classes for education when I was younger, I came to the realization that I did not want to become a teacher. Since I was working many hours and trying to get ahead financially, I decided to drop out of school. In hindsight, a better choice would have been to switch to a Liberal Arts degree. I have explained to my son that if I had completed any degree when I was younger, it would only be necessary for me to attend a few classes in order to receive a certificate instead of starting over from the beginning. He has witnessed the difficulties that I face trying to juggle an already hectic schedule with completing my schoolwork.
American teens My life compared to the Americans in the documentary is totally reversed compared to theirs. For starters, my parents hopefully don 't expect anything from me at all, only that I get through high school and get a job. They wouldn’t say that I wasn’t special just because my grades were above average but not #topoftheclass grades, they would instead encourage me to try harder in a good way I think. Then the Americans always have a pressure built up on them, for if they don’t get through high school and don 't get into college they would be nobodies and society would think of them as losers and failures.
Heroes have always been an influential concept of humanity regardless of culture, religion, and age. The Odyssey, by Homer, is an epic poem that follows the journey of Odysseus as he attempts to get back home to Ithaca, where his son, Telemachus, and wife, Penelope, are waiting for him in a palace beset with suitors. In The Odyssey, Odysseus utilises his intelligence and wit in order to come back home from the Trojan War. BTS’s Min Yoongi, or Agust D, is a rapper who persistently and relentlessly worked hard in order to achieve his dream of becoming a musician.
