At first, I was nervous because I didn’t see anyone I know or any familiar faces from our class that was volunteering. But throughout the night I met these two volunteers and we work together throughout the night. They both don’t know each other, but had volunteered together at another event before. They both were really nice and friendly. They made my experience volunteering at the event fun and not boring.
Our cross country teams won our first meet of the season, but there is more to the story than just the two trophies we brought back. It was an extremely unpleasant race for three different reasons. Our meet was in Snyder, Texas. As soon as we pulled up, I knew the course was not going to be the least bit enjoyable. The entire course was dirt; it was very dry and dusty.
So I enrolled in a school, it was supposed to be one of the happiest days of my life but it was not. At the beginning of school year, I did not have any friends and to make it worse, I got bullied. They bullied me on how I dressed especially my accent. Females even males were picking a fight with me. I wanted to tell my mom
The Pilgrims wanted Thanksgiving to a time for, “Thanksgiving is a time for families to come together and reflect” (Auerbach). Thanksgiving was created to be a time for Americans to raise spirits and be with their families. It was also a time for people to give thanks and have a stress free night, but Black Friday takes people away and makes them stressed. With Black Friday happening every Thanksgiving, millions of people are away from their families. Another reason opposers don’t like Black Friday is because stores are opening up too early.

Reading Response Book: Lemonade Mouth Genre: Chapter Book Text: Literary I am about a quarter of a way through a book called “Lemonade Mouth” which is written by Mark Peter Hughes and was published in 2007. The book is about five kids who formed a band to overcome their struggles in high school. I myself have never been to high school and this book gives me a little idea on what high school could be like.
When I left I knew that I wouldn’t want to ride any of the big slides there, even though all of my friends wanted to ride them. By the end of the day I had rode all but one. My friends told me that I just needed to do it and that it was so much fun. Once upon a time I was afraid of the Tornado, a massive water slide, because it was closed in with no light and there was a deep-dark drop off, but I overcame the fear.
Nothing was extraordinary about my life. I was just a normal ninth grader on the junior varsity cross country team. My times were not that great, so I had no intention of running varsity at all. We had a Saturday meet at Walker, but only the top seven varsity girls were going to compete.
During my high school days, I was a really shy person. I didn’t like to talk in class because I was nervous what my classmate will say about my response, I didn’t join anything activities or sports teams and I didn 't have a lot of friends. But I knew it was something I need to overcome sooner or later. During my Sophomore year, I wanted to change who I am, so I decided to join track since I like to run. But if I didn 't join track I wouldn 't be who I am today.
When I was around four years old, my parents wanted to surprise me with a special gift, which made that Christmas one to remember. I almost forgot that I had more gifts to unwrap because I was focused on discovering what my parents made me. I was not allowed to know what the special present was until Christmas day, no matter how many times I begged them to tell me. When I woke up Christmas morning, I was beaming with excitement, but I was still groggy like a bear waking up from hibernation.
Most ninth graders do not want to draw attention to themselves at school. This is why I even surprised myself that my freshman year I ran for treasurer of Key Club. Being Treasurer would not only mean that I was in charge of the money, but also that I would have to stand in front of an auditorium full of students and talk to them about upcoming events and dates. Just a few years earlier, I never would have had the courage to do this. I have come so far from who I used to be and it is all because of performing.
I would never have guessed that I would very much enjoy the experience, or that I would ever want to do it again, so I was uncertain about how I wanted to do the trip, until I realized that most of the good I get out of backpacking comes from the views and the people I’m with, rather than the hiking. I realized that I could hike to a camping spot, set up camp, and just hang out around there for a couple days. I thought about
I skipped almost all of these steps with my other ventures. I had no bank account or landing page and didn’t even consider my ideal customers. I just had what I thought was a good idea, so I started building it. I didn’t validate the project to see if anyone was interested because I thought "I want that, so it must be something people want," or "I think that 's clever, so I think I 'll build it, and other people will sign up for it. " I then spent weeks and months working on these ideas on the side and at night.
Throughout high school I have been very involved in my choir program. Music has always inspired and intrigued me. I decided to audition for Colorado All-state choir my junior year. I had to learn a solo and practice many other aspects of being a well-rounded vocalist. When I auditioned I was very nervous but it was nothing compared to the pain I felt of not making it two months later.
