One more time, my advocacy teacher is Vietnamese, so I can ask him about the class and where is it. But, I need more time to figure out, so I was late in Math class, and I felt very embarrassment. Even though, I do not understand while my teach speaking, but, I am very confident in Math class. Two periods pass, it was lunchtime. We just sit down on the table without get line to pick up a meal.
I fled up the stairs to get to my locker before the second bell rings. Once I got all my books I need for my first two periods, I walked into my first period class and sat down in my usual chair. The next two days were the same. Two periods I didn’t like as much and the two periods that I have the most fun in. I slept in this morning since it was Saturday and since I didn’t have to leave to go to the mall with my mom until around 10.
"Hey guys! So, this is the day before the convention, and I 'm so excited to meet you all! I have 3 hours before my plane to LA," I pause to look at the clock, "and it 's 8 right now. I need to do my morning stuffs, so I 'll record later!" I finish, stopping and placing the video camera down.
The Outsiders Sequel When I turned in my essay, my English teacher looked at my work in surprise. He flipped through my 7 pages of writing, and then set it on his desk. He said I could leave for the day, and that he would grade it as soon as he could. It was almost four o’clock, and Darry would kill me if I didn’t come home by four thirty. He didn’t want anything to happen to me again.
I cannot believe we have another marching band rehearsal. I have to walk out to the school’s marching band practice field again for the third time this week, just to go over what we already did yesterday. It is hot, humid, and I am tired. We go through all of this work, and we do not get anything from it. Why do we have to work for five hours a week for a ten-minute show anyway?
Going to college is probably one of the most important things that I have done in my life so far. Thinking back to everything I have done in the past ten years or so, I can see that taking to leap of faith to join college and further my education was such a huge step for me and I am glad that I did. Before I joined Southern New Hampshire University, I knew I would need some motivation to enroll. I remember a story my father told me about how he had gone to Technical College and became a licensed Master Mechanic and that really motivated me to want to further my education. Also, my brother had talked to me about two months ago and had told me his experience with going to college to earn his English degree and me, being the competitive brother I am, didn’t want him to be the only sibling to earn a degree.
About a week before school started, I had a serious talk with my parents and told them that I would get this done. I remember thinking “this will be the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life and it would either make me or break me.” When school finally started, I kept my job. I didn’t realize how tough of a challenge it would be until I found myself coming home at 11:30 with loads of work to do. I still didn’t let that bring me down and every day I showed up for classes I took things serious. I was extremely motivated to overcome something that seemed
At 25, life got real for me. I got served the sort of challenge that knocks you flat on your ass. It was yet another failed startup with my childhood buddy: my brother. I’d had enough, and I wanted to take back control. No longer could I live a life that wasn’t in line with my purpose.
It was my senior year and I was on track to be Valedictorian at my high school. The school was located in the small town of Hyrum, Utah. I would like to say that I went to a prestigious school that housed the most intelligent students in the country. However, it couldn’t be more different. The pungent smell of manure would waft down the hallways as students walked to and from class, I was always late to school because I would get trapped behind tractors on the single lane highway, and there were always pickup trucks in the parking lot.
What is my purpose? Since I was a child I was always changing what I wanted to be when I grow up, but now I have everything more clear, I remember since I was a first grader I promise to my uncle and to myself that I will finish college. I want to be an inspiration to my brothers and my parents that I accomplish my goal, I'm always thinking about my future how I will look like in three or five years what I'm doing all this why do I do my homework, why do I work, I ask to myself a lot of things, I want to try to do my best every day no matter what I try to go to school everyday even if I'm sick I want to enjoy every single moment of my life this is the main reason of going to college to get a better paid in job help my parents and brothers, I want to go to college finish my career be someone successful be someone, work hard in school, in life and everywhere. Finish college is one of my biggest goals is like one of those episodes that you want to watch every Sunday, you know that you have to wait for it but at the end is worth it. I remember when I first came to United States of America two years ago I felt
When I get to my bus stop I like all my parents and they come pick me up but when they before they do that they yell at me like every other day when I get to school I go straight to the band room to drop off my bass clarinet.The bell rings as i head off to my f irst period Class. It is Mr tellano. Today we learned about religion and where they go Like heaven and hell and
I stumble down the stairs to the kitchen where I turn on my Keurig and realize it is “THURSDAY! Oh crap!” Shasta college classes start on “MONDAY!” I have yet to sign up for the fall semester. Once my cup of coffee has brewed, I grab my laptop from the kitchen table, make my way to the living room, sit down on the couch, open my laptop and immediately sign into my “My Shasta account”. Reviewing the availability of the online classes offered I quickly realize most of the classes are not only full, but students are signing up for the waitlist (in hope that the instructor will either over enroll or some students will drop the class). Feeling discourage, I finally stumble upon two transfer level classes that actually have available openings and that I still need to take.
“Great,” she thought, “I will be the next trend in social media for the next day”. After that, she sulked to first block with her face down in embarrassment while the other students snickered and giggled. She figured by the time she reached first block the whole school will know what happened. Nevaeh made it to first block on time, but with a colossal price. Mr. Silver, the Science teacher exclaimed, “ Good morning class!
After a pause of almost 25 years, I am returning to the college classroom and to say that there are mixed emotions would be an understatement. Sure, I’m excited to start but also a bit fearful if I’m being honest. I’ve worked for large and international companies during this time but getting back to college has always been a goal of mine. No time like the present I guess! I am married with a one daughter who will be heading to college next fall and she is definitely a large and important part of my life.
Depict me; a full-time CSR, Mother, and wife. I have always wanted to go back to college, even after I dropped out, in 2010. I have always aspired to be a Network and Technology Manager. My dreams has been put on the back burner because of my priorities. Now, my priorities have changed, so now I can finish what I have started.
