Reading,"The Sun Goes Down on Summer" by Steve Lawhead brought back feelings I have about summer ending, school starting again, and being the real me! Summer ending means no more late night adventures. It means all the relaxing is traded in for hardcore studying. It means getting ready to see which friends will leave you and change for new friends. In the poem, Steve feels anxiety about starting school again, I relate to this in a big way!
Autobiography I was standing there at the edge of a fifty foot tall cliff petrified with anxiety and fear. This wasn't a stupid attempt at suicide, rather a stupid attempt at having fun before summer inevitably comes. I knew my summer already wasn't going to be fun, I signed up for algebra 2 summer school classes. So I and a few friends decided we would go to Maunawili Falls a 6 mile hike to a waterfall with a 50 foot cliff. It took us 2 hours of being covered in sweat, going through bushes, up and down hills overrun by mosquitoes to get there.

The transition from Primary school to Post-Primary school is a difficult time for anyone involved. It is one of the most drastic changes that students will ever encounter in the educational career. The transition is typically filled with anticipation and anxiety about homework, teachers, peers, academic rigor, school rules, getting lost, and many more factors.

he Lady with the pet Dog, and Life after High School by Joyce Oates both demonstrate satisfactions and frustrations of romantic relationships and dramatizes unhealthy and healthy forms of love in different ways. The similarities between the two stories is greater than the differences when it comes to romantic love, the unhealthy relationship between characters, and the plot’s structure. Joyce Carol Oates’, The Lady With The Pet Dog and Life After High School, both stories have similarities in their characters. They revolve around three main characters and are told in a third person point of view. Life After High School doesn’t uncover any of the characters true feelings or thoughts, and in The Lady With The Pet Dog, the story is limited omniscient, and uncovers Anna’s emotional isolation, depression and desire to find fulfillment in a relationship with a man.
I HAVE LIVED MY LIFE THINKING THAT THE WAY I LIVE WAS NORMAL. I wake up at 7:00, do my homework once I come back from school, do my after-school activity homework, and sleep at 12:00 A.M. to 1:00 A.M. I repeat that every weekday. I had no choice but to think that what I do was what everyone else did. I was wrong.
Most parents do not make you leave the school you have grown to love so dearly. Most parents will do anything to make their child happy. Considering my parents are not like this, they’re making me switch schools at the beginning of my seventh year. I am not happy about this decision or how they did not ask me if I would like to go to this school. They reply with short responses.
My first year in high school was the most challenging year I faced. I had few friends, intimidating classes, and a very low self esteem. My first few weeks were hard trying to fit in. Everything seemed so challenging and I couldn't help but hang out with the troublemakers in class. It was the only place I could find myself being able to make friends.
Fifteen and naïve, there was nothing my father could teach me that I already didn’t know or at least I thought. At times, I can still be seen weighing the many advices he gave me growing up. At the tender age of fifteen, my father decided to move back to Colombia. While it has taking me a while to forgive, I understand his many reasons for doing so. His leaving left some ramifications, especially for my mother and eleven year old sister.
