I am called Yarrow, by those who know me. Allow me to enter my story for the record. Once every four years, the many nations of planet Foath send forth their greatest athletes to compete against each other in epic showdowns. Over the course of two weeks, the mighty athletes challenge one another in a multitude of events.
Brittney Smith a 17 year old girl who goes to Maplewood High School where she is an honor roll student, a cheerleader, and is the student body president for the Junior classmen. She enjoys spending time with her family, hanging out with her friends, and she make sures that she makes the right decisions for the school. Brittney usually gets along with everyone in the school even the unpopular kids, but there is this one person she doesn’t like or can’t stand to be around. His name is Andre Jones, Andre is the captain of the basketball team and star player. Even though Brittney is around Andre during basketball games, she still refuses to talk to him or go near him.
It was my final year of junior high school in the eight grade. I was one of the few participants in the last of the two spelling bees of the school year. “Participants please take your seats” the Principal said, eagerly looking
Starting Tuesday January 17, 2017 – TODAY - all students must park in the upper student parking lot. This includes late arrival and early dismissal students. We are having to do this because students have taken over the front lot and our visitors do not have anywhere to park.
"It will probably rain tomorrow,” Margie said, “but the picnic will not be cancelled since the park has a shelter.”
Ever since I was little and even now, I have always loved sports that involve running, including track. In middle school when I was in seventh grade, I wanted to participate in track because I knew I would enjoy the sport. Track started in the spring during seventh grade, and the first couple of practices I thought were challenging because of what little practice I had before track had even started. From this point on, I knew I would have to work hard to reach the goals that I wanted to accomplish, and to even get personal records in running so that I could compete in sectional or even state meets that include top runners from every school. I had also kept in mind on what events I wanted to compete in, which were the one hundred meter dash,
I had to take my mother to work so that I could have the car and the next stop was my hair appointment. As I began to get my hair done the time became closer and closer to the time for graduation rehearsal. I had to speed from east Montgomery to north Montgomery in less than 10 minutes. Once I arrived, I soon realized that I was the last person to show up at rehearsal. My class mates loved me so much that they stalled until I got there. Once everyone was in their seats at rehearsal all the tickets that were to be given to the family members were distributed to the graduates. All of the graduates were split up into their academy and lined up by last name. The names were called and the walks were practiced. Once everyone had taken their practice walkthrough, we were seated again and told the do’s and don’ts of graduation night. I then left graduation rehearsal to go get my nails and makeup done. After the last few touches were done I rushed home to get dressed and drop off the tickets. I arrived downtown around 5:15p.m. As I entered the building all I could think of was “This is the moment that I have wait me entire life for”. I went backstage and everyone lined up just as they had done in rehearsal. A prayer was given and our principal and teachers had a few words. At the conclusion of their, words the names of the graduates began to flow. As I heard my teacher call my name I began to walk. Before he could even finish saying my name I began to hear shouts and screams from the audience from my friends and family and tears began to run down my face. I had finally done
Perry Band Olympics. This phrase both excites and terrifies every band student in Ankeny. Every year, our directors selects different songs for their students, and the students spend around six weeks practicing. My junior year solo was the hardest solo I’ve prepared, it challenged me in ways that I had not been prepared for.
Ready I’m going spastic: I really don’t need to drink.. or pot.. I think they calmed me down if anything.
“WHAT” I thought. “Is Stevie trying to help me win the best student award? He would never do such a thing!” I thought again. “Maybe, because Stevie admitted that he was lying about me the whole time, I might win the student of the year award!” I thought right as the bell to go home rang. Once I got home, I dozed off, and I didn’t care to wake up until the next morning.
Do you ever have that moment in your life where you put everything aside a focus on one thing? The date was September 14th, the golf tournament at Yorktown Golf Course. I had been waiting for this tournament all year. This was my chance to put all that I have worked on for weeks into full effect. All I could think about was a medal and how much I really wanted it. This was my chance to have something that would really raise my confidence.
Counting down the list from number 20 to eventual number 1, my heart raced as they called out the names. It was 8th grade and the rankings were out. This may seem like a rather pretentious achievement but when they called out the name “Andrea Campos” as the valedictorian of Copiague middle school. My heart skipped a beat and tears streamed down my face. Hearing my parents brag about me to their friends made me feel like my accomplishment was their achievement as well. The immense joy I received from them was priceless and therefore it is my proudest
It was the day before the first day of school at LNC. There once was a boy who was about to experience his first day at LNC. The boy's name was Sherbert and he was going into fifth grade. Sherbert is average height, but a little thin. He doesn't like to wear jackets, but likes to wear jeans or pants. He was a good student overall and his past teachers liked teaching him because he was respectful and almost never rude. He was curious for knowledge, but liked a small challenge also. His parents like how he learns. He likes to help people if they are stuck, but he doesn't ask many questions.
For some people there favorite memory only comes one time, but, for me I have had four of them. I have been showing market hogs for four year at the county fair. My very first year I had no clue what I was doing but, some of my best friends are some of the best hog showmen in the state of Michigan, so it didn’t take me long to catch on. Fair week is always my favorite week of summer and probably always will be. In July, 2012 I walked into the show ring at the Huron Community Fair for the first time showing a market hog. My nerves were as big as an elephant, my heart was beating so fast, and I still wasn’t 100% sure about what I was doing. Together me and my barrow Axel walked into the ring for our market class immediately I knew that we
