I am always friendly to new and old people who got to school in NEMS. I am always cheerful in and out of school, and I never try to show anything but cheerfulness towards people. Good character is a very good quality to have as a person, and for NJHS. I have the quality of a good character. I should be National Junior Honor Society because I have good character, citizenship, service, and leadership.
If students are strictly controlled by their friends or classmates and teachers, they start losing their happiness, their confidence and they lose themselves. If you read about Sandra Cisneros’s short story “Eleven” and think it is about a girl who must wear a sweater she doesn’t want to wear. Instead, it is a story about a girl who struggles to hold onto herself when she is challenged by people who have power over her. When Rachel’s classmate exposed her, Rachel begins to lose herself by losing her confidence. One day Rachel’s teacher asks who owns a stretched out, itchy red sweater that was left behind in the coat room.
Though they are represented as opposites, the witch and Rapunzel’s mother share the yearning for motherhood (Fisher and Silber 128). In other versions of “Rapunzel” the witch figure has varied representations, appearing sometimes as an ugly ogre that literally embodies her evil character, occasionally as a fairy, or even in several renditions as a nun (Getty 48). Though the magical representation of a fairy, ogre or witch seems to fit the evil nature of the witch’s actions, the interesting approach is that of the witch figure as a nun. Getty suggests that this could be based on a more realistic story, as the plant the mother craves, which is often translated as parsley, would only be grown in a few places, such as convents, due to its price (48). To get the plant Rapunzel’s parents would have encountered a nun, who would perhaps have seen the mother as a sinning, pregnant women and agree to raise the child in the convent in return for the plant (Getty 48).
It seems that some of Byatt’s feelings about school have accomplished their way into her fiction; in The Game, Cassandra has very depraved remembrances of When she was sent away to school, a colorless eleven years old in liberty bodice, wrinkled, stockings, and a tunic bought prudently one size too large. The other girls were enemies the building menacing, objects threatening: the notice-board with dangerous pins, the gallows-like which they are their Sunday eggs. She wept all night, and then the weeping had spilled over into the day; she sat on benches, immobile, with a wet face, and grew thinner. The terror wore off gradually.
There aren 't a lot of actual magical realism novels in Young Adult - there are a lot of fantasy, paranormal, etc., but magical realism is difficult to find. This book was everything that makes magical realism what it is, and yet it was an engaging and haunting Young Adult story that is a classic for the ages.I began reading The Accident Season and was quick to pitch it as contemporary YA that also fell somewhere between The Ring and The Falling. You may have heard about the mysterious tarot cards and the creepy red buttons, but the The Accident Season is not so much scary story as it is a wonderfully evocative contemporary novel with many eerie twists. The accident season has begun, in which Cara, her mother, her sister Alice, and her ex-stepbrother Sam, are at their most accident-prone. No
In children's books, including fairy tales, women are misrepresented such as weak, speechless, uneducated and the only thing they can do just wait for a prince and home duties. However, in modern life, women are educated, owns companies, they can perform jobs that men perform, they are strong and successful. Reading fairy tales to children which represent women stereotypically, they may detrimental to girls. It lowers their self-esteem and potential for their future because they will mirror themselves with protagonist where women’s job is to cook and clean a house. However, “The simple reversal of gender roles does not result in a feminist fairy tale, but rather a fractured fairy tale” (Kuykendal & Sturm, 2007, p. 40).
I am honored to be eligible amongst the meritorious students who are being considered for induction within the National Honors Society. Being an active member in this society has been something I have been looking forward to since middle school; having previous family members inducted, I regard it as a goal I must accomplish. I would be honored to be a member of this society which is known for benefitting children, the elderly, and the needy .These limitless opportunities of contributing to my community will help me grow as a person which will undoubtedly help me in my future career as oncologist and leave an impact on my fellow community members. The National Honors Society is a remarkable organization for someone who demonstrates leadership,
When I was a little girl, I received a book of poems for my tenth birthday. In this book of utterly random poems, I discovered the likes of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wordsworth Longfellow, Robert Frost, and many eloquent others for the first time. Among these magnificent poets was none other than the solitary, articulate Emily Dickinson. Because I was so young, I can remember thinking of her lifestyle with disdain and confusion as I couldn’t understand why she would simply not want to be around people. I especially wondered how her pretty words made sense with, what I saw as, such a miserable life.
He might say I matter, but when he goes on a scavenger hunt for a book, I realize I don’t matter” (Lopez paragraph 26). This shows that the daughter feels that her father does not care as much about her. She feels unloved and alone because her own father just blatantly left the table trying to find a book and did not stir up a conversation with her daughter. Finally, at the end of the passage, when the father greets the daughter with the book in her room, as soon as he left, she expressed, “I put the book on the nightstand and use it as a coaster. The condensation from my soda leaves a big, wet circle on the cover” (Lopez paragraph 34).
Another constant feature in the lives of engineering students is the technical festival. Every year I volunteer with Konvolve, our college fest, and have worked tirelessly in making it a grand success. Conscientious of my moral duties, I’m actively involved with Rotaract, a non-profit service, helping my community and in turn the nation. Through sport and interaction, I continue to work with my friends and colleagues, bringing maturity to my role as a confidante and teammate. Furthermore, even at home my gregariousness has made me a very likable person, and often I’m considered the life of the party at family functions and formal
Homecoming at PND has many traditions the students and alumni hold very special to them, including dress-up theme days all week, powder-puff football, olympics, trivia contests, the pep rally, homecoming court, the football game, and the dance, all of which I was in charge of. I am able to take on many leadership roles and do them all with a smile! University of Dayton students seem to have a great school spirit, and I would like to add my ideas to build it even
This allowed her fantastic bonds within the community and she was very well respected; however, our new superintendent has done a fantastic job in filling her shoes. He realizes how important both schools history is to the community members and incorporates it whenever he can. He is also very big on hiring community members, which makes the bond between our school and community even stronger. The kids in our school get so excited when they or their parents know their teacher outside of
Greenfield came to RMU to speak to us regarding inclusive excellence and positive change. He led us through a variety of activities that helped the athletic teams bond together and become more like a family. These activities included having a group lead the audience in singing, splitting us into small groups and learning more about people outside of our sport, and the chance to open up to the entire audience about a personal experience that has deeply affected us. He also shared his personal experiences that related to the program he was presenting to us about. Dr. Greenfield’s presentation was a great experience for the athletic department, and the principles he taught us will allow us to grow closer and perform better on the
The Erlking by Sarah Shun-Lien Bynum confused me, even though the interpretation sounded interesting and fantastical. At first, I wondered if my confusion dealt with me not reading or hearing about “Der Erlkönig” before. After thinking that, I read the poem online; I really liked the poem because of creepy it is. I saw some correlations with Bynum’s version, but confusion still lingered in my head. I’m thinking a combination of the story structure and the lore (the fairies and elves) didn’t mix well with me.
