The True Diary of Luke Skewis By; Luke Skewis Hi I’m Luke Skewis. I’m a 5’7, Sophomore at Negaunee High School. The stories you are about to read and very important lessons I learned from my friends, family, and coaches. I hope you enjoy The True Diary of Luke Skewis. 2nd Grade It was Super Bowl Sunday and I invited all of my friends over for a “Super Bowl Party.” It was the first one that I had as a kid.
Is marching band rigorous and athletic enough to be considered a sport? From the very start of marching band, it has been considered an activity, or a hobby, and not a sport. Most people assume it isn’t athletic because it’s just an activity or a type of hobby that you do, and they don’t consider it athletic because they think you don’t need to put that much effort into it. The people who assume there isn’t much effort put into it also believe that marching band is really easy. I have marched with the Pride of the Hill band since my Freshman year, and experienced some marching in eighth grade, and it isn’t as easy as it seems.
Her rage against Pat’s family brings back a bet that was made between Randy and Pat’s father. It’s an all-or-nothing bet that will result in the loss of an enormous amount of money if Pat’s father loses. If the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Cowboys in their next game and if Pat and Tiffany win a five out of ten in their dance competition, Pat’s father will win the parlay. Despite discovering that Tiffany wrote the letter from Nikki, Pat continues to rehearse with Tiffany until the day of the competition. After winning the bet, Pat has a short conversation with his ex-wife, Nikki.
On the night of his birthday party, at 8:15, Max wished that his father could not tell a lie for one whole day. His wish did come true and Fletcher could not lie to anyone all day long. This was bad timing for Fletcher because it was in the middle of a case at work that he was likely to win due to his success in lying. Although, due to his truthful state, Fletcher realized how lousy of a father he had been to Max. He had taken advantage of how close Max lived from him, which was about to change if he did not make an effort to keep his promises.
We were the epitome of high school sweethearts, we went to school dances and football games together, everyone knew us as a couple, we had the same part time jobs and we thought we were going to be together forever. Everything was going fine I realized I was unhappy and we broke up, or more so I broke up with him, and he did not take that well. As I moved on with life with a new job, starting school and meeting new people, I forgot to check up on how Tyler was doing. Being that he took us breaking up so poorly, I had no need to see him or hear from him, if
My senior year I did not try out because of my busy schedule, but i regret not making more time for it. It is my passion and the band advanced to area this year. Another extracurricular activity I enjoy is Winter Guard, which is all color guard members and no band members. I have been in Winter Guard for two years and I will be going on my third year this year. The first year we got sixth place at State and I was captain my junior year as well.
Having the opportunity to experience these milestones with my friends kept the year filled with never ending laughter and joy. After years of my friends recruiting me, I decided to join cheer for the first time. My Friday nights were now spent on the sidelines cheering on the football team, instead of yelling from the bleachers. Cheer brought me closer to my friends. We made memories at practices, games, and on the bus rides.
You’ll never believe what happened…here’s a little backstory. I am a huge Dallas Cowboys fan from birth and I have always wanted to go to one of their games, but there would never be enough time, even if we were playing the New York Giants…. I was walking to class and because I was already late, the hallway was empty. I saw two of my favorite football players Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott from the Dallas Cowboys. They were inviting me to their home game and I would have to go with them and miss class or miss the game entirely and go to class.
The next few weeks were spent just eating out at amazing places, and just having an overall good time. We went to buffalo wild wings, dairy queen, and subway. Finally, one morning after having a long running practice for cross country, Carson informed us the shirts were in, and amazingly the day was a Wednesday. We all wore the shirts so proud that day, but little did the group know, this would be the last glory day of the Wednesday Night Eaterz. During that day, everyone at school was asking us where we got the shirts, and who all was in it, which made all of us members just feel like we were on cloud nine.
I’m now a captain and three year cheerleader at Brighton, 2 year United Spirit Association All-American Athlete, and planning to cheer in college. Cheer has given me so much, my best friends, a great relationship with my school and a positive high school experience. I have no idea who or where I would be today if I decided to quit that first horrible practice. Never give up, most things don’t make sense in the moment, but it was will always pay off in the long
There were approximately 50,000 in attendance on Wednesday, August 13, two days before the festival was to begin. The early arrivers had waltzed right through the huge gaps in the fence that had not gotten finished. Since there was no way to get the 50,000 people to leave, and no time to erect the rest of the fence, the organizers made the concert free for all. This announcement of a free concert had two dire effects. Firstly, the organizers were going to lose a large amount of money that could’ve went towards the making of the recording studio.
I feel that so many students and parents have been looking forward it, I do not think it is a good idea to cancel it now. I agree with all the students and their parents that many kids have already put in time and effort for this graduation. Each girl bought her dress already, and each boy has bought his suit and tie. It would make many students unhappy to hear that it is getting canceled now. Especially because they have been planning this day since they were in 7th grade.
Now that August is here, the football jerseys are out of storage and back in effect. With football teams gearing up for a successful season, local cheerleaders are hoping for the same. With fingers intertwined, pretty bows and new stunts to wild the crowd, many teams are hoping to make it to the top this year as they compete for the state title. Having summer camps and practices to better their chances at winning and to heighten the spirits of the football crowd, cheerleaders worked hard all summer long. With a private day camp given by cheerleaders from Gardner-Webb University, the LHS cheering squad is ready to bring more attitude and spirit this season.
A month before homecoming, Mount Washington High always post the list. On the list it names the prettiest and ugliest girls in each grade. There are copies everywhere. The list is written by a new person each year but no one ever finds out who it is. The girls become the center of attention for homecoming month.
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.
