Through what I consider to have been a very difficult childhood, I developed a love of thinking, and the ideas of how and why the brain works. Between my split households, school, and a constant lose of friends, because of my school, I had to try to find my own way, one way I found to cope was through music. Diving into music can be a very conceptually stimulating thing and after a while I found myself reading psychology books as well. I know my meaning in life is to help treat people with mental illnesses and my top goal is to be a Psychiatrist one day, so I can do just that. Plus I 've always been good at talking and listening so that only increases my desire for this
A person’s hobbies say a lot about them as an individual. It is a universal truth that the people you surround yourself with have a major impact in shaping who you are, and the people that coincide with your interests can either change your life for better or for worse. For the past six years of my life, I have been a part of the fine arts community through band. Being a part of the band program has shaped who I am today as a person in many ways. It is in all parts my identity, interest, and talent, and in three to four months out of the year, it is my life.
For many years, a question has been ask trillions of times throughout the homes of families.What are you going to do after High School? Everyday you hear many different answers and bunch of different lectures of what you should and what shouldn’t you do. Having many honorable mentions such as Steve Jobs, Dave Thomas, or Kevin Rose shows that college after high school is not the only option. Four-Year Universities are not practical choice for most Americans students after High School because of the lack of preparation for a college education,Student are pressured that having a college degree is the only way to maintaining a stable financial life , and A college degree doesn 't pay off for years .
Throughout my high school career, there is only one major thing that has affected my entire life, including my educational performance and that is marching band. The marching band at my high school is one of the most well respected programs in my district. In eighth grade, I decided to audition for color guard. And when I made the team, I became apart of the marching band. That year, my entire life changed.
Throughout my high school career, I was forced into many situations where I was challenged to connect with my peers and serve as a role model for future students. Whether it be my involvement in the school marching band, or helping students in community tutoring sessions, I have always made it my goal to better the people around me through my own efforts. Throughout my high school career, I have put forth my best effort to connect with my peers, transform individuals, and make a difference in my community. Joining the school marching band at the beginning of my freshman year of high school was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Over the course of my 17 years of life, music has become an immensely important part of my life. It’s taught me how to cope with my bipolar depression and anxiety and has given me a healthy and creative form of self expression. I love science and I love chemistry, but music, whether it be piano, guitar, or singing, that’s my first love. I would be lost if I hadn’t discovered my love for
There were so many inhabitants. So many possibilities. Then it hit me. If one asks a musician why they play their instrument, responses will, naturally, have something to do with music and great composers, or performing or recording or teaching - freelancing; anything.
Middle School to High School In middle school, one thing that I thought of high school is that it wouldn’t be much different than middle school. I was told a lot of bad things about high school, people saying “just wait until you get to high school, everything gets a lot worse” or “you think it’s hard now? Just wait.” When I was in middle school, I was told as well as thought that high school wouldn’t be any different than middle school except for it being harder academic wise.
Looking back to my younger years, I never wanted to play or even talk to the older kids in the playground. Just the fact of them being older than me intimidated me, so I would play only with kids in my age group. The summer of my junior year, my parents didn’t have money to be spending on the little stuff that I wanted, so I decided to apply at Burger King. Fast food restaurants usually just have teenagers working there right? Wrong.
The world is vast from jungle to desert, and moutains to ocean. 95% of the ocean still remain unexplored. My world is a combination of many different realms that come together to represent my life. I live in Chatsworth, a small suburb of Los Angeles, with my mom, dad, and younger brother. I have a very supportive and large family who is always there for holidays and whenever you need them. I also have a small close knit group of friends that I spend a lot of time with. I have gone to school with them since I was eleven years old and been close with them ever since. I go to a private catholic school in West Hills that is very competitive. You are constantly hearing the phrases, “where are you going to college?” “What did you get on the test?” “How did you study?” This
My Junior Year Born and raised in Mississippi, I grew up playing tennis when my father introduced the sport to me at age four. It was a slow process in the beginning while I played several other sports including basketball, soccer, and swimming. At some point, I chose to give up the other activities to put all of my focus on one sport: the sport I enjoyed the most, tennis. I played around the city with everyone up until my junior year, when I realized my resources in Mississippi were limited compared to other people living in different states. I elected to give up my life, friends, and family to jump out of my comfort zone and see if I could reach my full potential at a tennis academy called Randy Pate Tennis Academy in Winston-Salem, North
Since freshman year, I struggled with my grades. I've never been the smartest or fastest person in school, but I am very hardworking when it comes to homework and classwork. I try my absolute best and even when I get discouraged I pick myself up and try again. Freshman year my mom was getting surgeries for her cancer, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, and my parents and I were having a very rough patch. I faced abuse as a young adult from my father which left me with very hard memories and stress to get over. Up until senior year, I struggled with school because I felt like the world turned against me in every way. I couldn’t get out of my bubble of depression, I kept on replaying my father’s abuse in my head over and over every day non-stop.
High school, it is what it is. It’s going to be mid-August, naturally you’re already going to be hot as it is, and adding it’s the first day you might be stress sweating as well. Don’t panic, the world isn’t going to end, but it’s just going to start a new journey. You’re also going to face about a thousand new faces too.
High school is nothing like John Hughes portrays it. No iconic soundtrack plays over my terribly mundane life. No one makes random connections on Saturday in detention. Jake Ryan did not kiss me on my sixteenth birthday, unfortunately. Cutting class and going on crazy adventures is profounfdly improbable, especially for me. In fact, most of my high school career consisted of me sitting at home, stuffing my face, and watching the aforementioned “old movies.”
Personal Narrative Essay Believe it or not, sometimes a gracious action can bring a huge influence on a person. When I read the introduction that instructor Heller wrote, there is a sentence she wrote: “Sometimes the most influential moments in our lives are smaller moments, events that we may not recognize as influential until years after the experience.” For some reason, I related to it strongly. My story is about my high school experience. Also, I will share some significant moments in my life, and how these smaller moments changed my personality.
