Telly is a sophomore now and and says to Caly “Your first day can’t go any worse than mine did, so think of it that way”. Caly replies “What happened?”, as Telly lets out a stressful sigh he flashed back and begins telling Caly about how his day went. “I was on the bus and it was extremely crowded so he had to sit next to a big stocky senior.
My first day of high school as a freshmen in a new level of education Is what I was thinking when I woke from slumber that morning in bed. Stepping foot on the campus wasn’t even the beginning, taking the school bus in the morning is where the first taste of being a freshmen and actually starting and being an high school student. I started to get really nervous and a sense of reality hit me. Walking towards the bus stop all I see is a huge group of high school students waiting around for the bus, calm and cool as I try to stay to be I approach the waiting area not knowing what to I’m getting into. This surge of anxiety
Our society has become immune to being better than those who don’t have what we have be started to ignore or forget about the less fortunate. A personal example I experienced was when I turned 16, I was excited to drive to school, I wouldn’t have to ride the bus for an hour every morning anymore, but when I found out that I might have to ride the bus awhile because we couldn’t find a car for me. I was devastated because I would have to ride the bus to school when people in other countries have to walk miles on miles just to get an

I’d consider a score of thirteen to one a butt-kicking, especially coming against one of the proudest travel teams in all of Ohio. With a record of three wins and no losses, our hopes were high. That night we went back to hotel we stayed at and had one of the most enjoyable nights of my life. To this day I still remember it fondly. Buffalo Wild Wings with friends then staying up until twelve-thirty running around the hotel playing tag probably wasn’t the right thing to do eight hours before our next game, but it was enjoyable and luckily for us it didn’t bite us in the butt.
Kinda wish they had planned to meet up at the college at a later time but I guess I can’t control how long the trip is! “Look at that! The bus has TVs!” a classmate shouted from the back, “that’s so cool!” It was cool, the bus was packed basically with a lot of teenagers who were tired but most likely hyped up on energy drinks. Upward Bound, a program that helps you get a first-hand college experience, really did go to the top with this trip. I hope this trip goes well so my hard work wasn’t for nothing though!
The Hitler Youth was built from Hitler’s idea that the future of Nazi Germany was the children. Many parents at this time had no objection about their children joining the Hitler Youth. Males would have outdoor training, games, and sports twice a week. They would also go on hiking and camping trips. Kids like Edgar, a kids apart of the Hitler Youth, felt as if he was a part of something strong and powerful.
I realized that I did not believe in the church, but kept it to myself. I enjoyed attending the weekly meetings. Youth activities brought me some of the closest friends I have ever made and daily scripture study brought the family into the living room every morning to talk and laugh. While small things about the church irked me, I could see all the good this religion was providing to both my family and me so I kept it in my life. Keeping with the status quo worked great for a while.
The first round of regionals approached and we were given the name of the team we would play for the first game. As we loaded the bus for departure nerves were floating throughout the air. But our traditional karaoke bus ride did not go unsung. The bus was filled with the voices of the girls I have grown up with and flashbacks of all the memories we had shared. I knew that this game had the full potential of being my last, but I would not have wanted to lose with anyone else.
