For the first three hours of the day, nothing eventful happened. A couple people asked me if I was new; I had to try to maintain a conversation with them as best I could. Other kids kept whispering around me, but I never could understand what they were saying. After third hour, I realized that my next hour was with Mr. Wagner, the name I had noticed on my schedule from earlier in the day. When I walked in, I quietly found my seat in the back of the classroom.
The most important reason for me is loyalty and freedom of my country. “... but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and women… yet we have this consolation with us , that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” ( Document D) The soldiers will forever be basked in glory for what they did for their country, and did not cower and
The Objective and Social Interactions of Dramaturgy "Everything influences playwrights. A playwright who isn 't influenced is never of any use" Arthur Miller Introduction I was daydreaming in the class and the teacher calls on me and asking me a question. Suddenly I do not know the answer and I’m desperately started to looking around for help, a friend of mine whispered it to me and I said the answer. Suddenly the moment of terror has passed, I go back to daydreaming, the teacher continue what he supposed to do and everyone is happy and actually there are lot of things happened that day that raises so many questions. Such as, why I worried give the right answer?
I’ve struggled with depression for so long that it constantly felt like there was no point in fighting back. I’ve dealt with pressure and not wanting to look a certain way because I wanted people to think I was ‘cool’ or ‘good enough.” I’ve sat down in class and watched my grades dance on the edge of the Not Passing (they call it an ‘NP’ at our school and it hurts to say it) line. I constantly
Although chasing perfection can be seen as a downfall, it has shaped who I am and what I have accomplished. Simultaneously, allowing this drive to become hyperfocused can quickly become my greatest downfall. As high school progressed, I realized that I was constantly seeking perfection within my academic classes and extracurriculars. Every time I achieved “perfection,” it gave more reason to push and explore further. Every time I failed, I became an emotional wreck because the idea of “failure” had always been foreign to me when I pursued things I cared about.
So that was kind of how the daily routine went for all of elementary. Every day after school we sat down together and worked on the school work that would always be giving me trouble whether it was a spelling test or some math homework. Most conversations went like “Your brother Erik can do it just fine, why can't you?” or “Everyone else in class understands this just fine, so that means you aren’t trying enough.” Eventually things started to click it started slowly at first like “Wow Isaac you did ok on this spelling bee.” my mother would say or “You did most of this homework by yourself?” I gradually became independent enough to do work on my own and only with occasional help from my mother or Erik my brother. Finally about the time I started middle school my mother's expectations didn’t go lower it was that I was able to meet them easier. So now when it seems like my mom doesn't expect much it’s because we share the same expectations for me to be responsible and successful and it's not something that needs a constant reminder or outside help, because they match my own
First I would come to class and make sure I had all my stuff that was needed for the lesson. Next, with the help of my teacher, I pushed the piano out into the hallway where we were in sight of the camera, rules so legal action would not happen. We would sit there and play for the rest of class, 5 minutes before school was over we would wheel the piano back to the classroom and I would leave. Through this experience, I was able to develop a friendship with this teacher that still is there today. During one of our classes, I was learning a song by Maroon 5 called Payphone.
I knew that I was always still a little stressed about things, even things that I couldn’t get rid of through my daily meditations. I ignored it because it wasn’t important to me and I knew that I would someday deal with it. It took me 2 more years till when I took a health class, and one the topics was stress, and it caught me off guard. What I had thought about stress was wrong. Stress was always my enemy.
I wanted to be called by my name not hers! I started to get an attitude with some teachers by not answering when they would call out Madison, knowing that they were talking to me. Freshman year I was at the bottom. Coming from a small school, I only knew six girls in my class. Every freshman is required to attend computer orientation.
We should spend our life loving and never hating, but mostly the quote just tells me that everyone deserves an equal chance at happiness. I think that is something that we should all live by. In conclusion, I think the song "Happy People" is wonderful. I think that even people who never care to look deeper into the meaning of a song can appreciate what Little Big Town wrote. Personally, when I looked into the meaning of the song, I immediately loved the message.
With waiting for the ball to drop, there was a new energy within the classroom. I had two other students ask to read the play instead of Invisible Man, and since I let Helena, I couldn’t deny them. The papers would be interesting to grade next week. “Okay kids, I know most of you have about finished Invisible Man and Raisin. So can anyone explain what a climax is and apply it to one of the books?” In comparison to before, the number of hands was a pleasant surprise.
