Again he ate my lunch then he trotted of very cocky. I was lucky the landowners gun had not landed in the puddle, it was perfectly fine. I could not think of another way to shoot this deer without him messing something up. Then it came to me, what if I used a camo ground blind? I went, set it up, then got it ready for the next morning.
Luckily it was at the crack of dawn and winter where you can see your breath and feel the brisk cold, thus the snake was sunbathing and didn’t pay attention to us. My brother and I did not see it, but my father saw it and told us that we almost stepped on it. It was scary thinking that if either one of us stepped on the snake that we wouldn’t want to know what would happen. My father is kinda crazy in the mind, as much as wanting to show us how the snake attacks. Then he grabbed a stick started poking the deadly snake.
Based on a real story, Into the Wild can make us think from different perspectives about what the main character Christopher McCandless did. Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer is a dramatic but also remarkable story from a young, newly graduated, college student that escaped for a long wild journey but never came back. As time passes throughout the book, the reader may notice how the main character interacts with society and nature, finally McCandless dies in the wild but even though he was struggling for survival he died happy. Some people never get out of their comfort zone, others are tired of it and retire from their comfort zone to have different experiences in life, some are good enough or some are terrible. Experiencing different things in
Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
I attempted to convey the sense of wonder and nature I felt while on the trip, and I think this is best captured in the first stanza. “The pine trees towered over me, like a human to an ant.” I had to include this because even after all the years I can still remember how small I felt, yet I was in awe of the tree’s size. I then once again slightly exaggerated by saying, “I cut through brush with a machete avoiding any carnivorous plant.” I included the carnivorous plant part because while I was thinking about the trip, I remembered how much of an adventure it felt like.
Sometimes they had people like me taking three or four Sol’s in one semester. Like I had U.S. History Sol my first semester but I had Algebra 2, Chemistry and English sol’s all in one semester. So, for the whole second semester I was stressing. Took the English part 1 and part 2 then moved to Algebra 2 and then the next day a chemistry. I personally benefitted a lot from the experiences had when I took my SOL’s because it made me a stronger person.
I am looking for happiness. I find that my biggest strength is learning from my mistakes. I have always told people that I would rather them tell me what I did wrong then let me believe I was right but, it seemed to really hit me after a low point of my semester. I realized that I can either dwell on my mistakes or take them as a new lesson. I have been looking back on my first semester and though it was my lowest of low points, I now see overcoming it as one of my proudest moments.
My overall thoughts of this project were a little negative at first, if I’m being honest. I didn’t like the idea of having to find a person to shadow, follow them around for about eight hours, and then write a research paper about my it. But, by the time the first shadowing was over, I was excited to go back. I observed great things and learned a lot. My final thoughts now are great.
When I look back on the memories I 've made the friends that I now have the struggles I 've been through and the goals I did all most likely did not I realize that going it all went by in a Flash I know I 'm going to miss SMS I cannot begin to explain how much I have come to love this place the positive vibes and the smiles that welcome you into every day although it wasn 't always easy and there were some bad moments I 'm going to miss it here but I am happy to be to be moving up to high school I hope that you enjoy have enjoyed this year as much as I did what I will almost remember my first year SMS from the drama to crying on the last day I 'll only be able to remember the best moments one of my favorite moments was the winter carnival my
He is my hero because I was having some trouble understanding the material for statistics and he helped me understand it clearly. According to him, “I got here by doing my best earning good grades during my 2 final years in my high school classes and prepping for the SAT.” His definition of a hero is a person who is looked upon by others and being someone’s role model. He chose Eminem as his hero because his dad wasn’t always with him since he worked a lot and his mom was always
Actually, this was a very successful year with my students. As I mentioned before, I was a mentor to Amy Fitzanko. This was not the first time I mentored a new teacher, but this year was different. Amy was to co-teach with the special education teacher for most of the day and it was not going well. It was difficult advising her on how to handle the situation.
This was one of the happiest days of my life because I knew in the future I would reflect back on my experience and think to myself I made it this far with so many complications that I know I can overcome anything life would throw at me. Although I did not graduate with honor society or one of the highest grades I still have the satisfaction of having my diploma and knowing I overcame all my failures in middle school. I’m proud to say thank you to my teacher who never let me down and always told me I can do it because of her I showed her my effort was more than
