Dance class had a very similar situation to this. By the age of fifteen I only had sports and school to worry about. Despite the fact that trainers pinned their hopes on me, as my sports physical parameters were suitable, I understood that combining sports with school studies would be difficult for me. A lot of time and money needed to be spent for sports, so I just stuck with school studies. Social Sciences were very interesting subjects at that time, and I made up my mind that I would enter the university after leaving school.
Originally, I had to work on weekdays. However, due to the clashing with my summer course schedule, I had to give up on a few days of my work in order to attend the lectures. Seeing as my friend was desperately looking for a job, I introduced her to my boss and applied for her to become my replacement while I study. She eagerly accepted. On the eve of her first day of work, I
My weekends in high school were filled with homework, meets, working, and scholarship applications in any spare time. With a disabled Mom and a hard working Dad barely earning enough to support my family of 5, I didn’t waste any time. I applied for over one hundred scholarships my senior year, praying I would be able to earn enough to put towards my first
Each year, thousands of children around the world begin formal musical instrument learning. Ho, W. C. (2011, p. 8) Many Hong Kong parents want their children to learn musical instruments and take part in public examinations such as the ABRSM (footnotes 1) in the hope that this will bring them both happiness and success (Hiebert, 1993; Zhang, 2004). Their teachers might include all the constituent parts of a graded performance examination (Mills, 2007), and usually focused on reading and motor skills in their curriculum (Odam 1995, p.31). However, Hong Kong students were consumption and preferences for popular music (Ho, 2004, 2008). Green writes, “we can surmise that many children and young people who fail and drop out of formal music education, far from being either uninterested or unmusical, simply do not respond to the kind of instruction it offers” (2001, p.9).
I never thought the words: time, memories, or people were taken for granted. Sometimes memories of her capture my emotions, turning them into a wave of endless thoughts, but most of the time I zone out. February 15, 2014 … 12: 37 PM, sends a chill up my spine, and gives my body numbness with a touch of emotion. I miss going to her house for everything, ( after school, summer vacation, and the holidays), calling her “Gram”, but most importantly my best-friend. Every second in this world, we are given a chance to appreciate one another; but yet it seems we do not realize that until they are gone.
I've always seen myself as a leader So,I was disappointed to know that In school when they were choosing the Posse Nomene they did not choose me. The Posse Scholarship is a four year scholarship for students who show leadership and accomplish to good grades. When I heard that I was not nominated by my school, my thoughts immediately turned to myself. Was I not a leader? I'm not just an activist fighting for what's right, this is how I am an activist, a feminist.All this started when I was In fifth grade and my Mom told me about this walk for ending abusive and verbal violence.
The actual events of the audition are blurry and unclear in my memory. I spent weeks desperately awaiting the results of my audition. Finally, I found out that I had been accepted into my dream school for a degree music education. This was one of the happiest moments of my life. But it has been a long journey here.
What I did mind was at the end of the year when Mrs. Sopor gave her senior speeches to each senior. For my friend Aubrey, she had many, many words (Aubrey was her class favorite and it was glaringly obvious) and lots of those words were about the book float and its creation. This would have been fine if for my speech she had said something more than “We didn’t talk much, but you seemed cool”. Even Aubrey gave me a look at that. It was another ego
Going through a divorce is never easy and for me studying would distract me and lessen the pain of the divorce. A year and a half prior to my departure date, my boss approved a position for an Assistant Training Officer who would act as Training Officer during my absence and offered Blossom the job but unknown to us there were personal circumstances militating against an immediate acceptance of the offer and the Bank waited for almost a year for her answer. In retrospect I am glad the Bank waited because our working relationship lasted twenty-four years and it was not only a blessing but one of the best things that happened to me. During those years, Blossom became my constant support, my confidante, my Counsellor, my sister in Christ and my forever friend. We still cry together, laugh together and are available to each other at all
As an engineering student, I had spent my time studying my courses, hanging out with my friends and classmates, playing video games and watching television and anime shows. So I never imagined myself helping and reaching out for those people who needed some little help, especially for those elder ones. It was an enriching experience and it is an eye-opening for me to determine the true feeling of volunteerism. It was the first outreach event for the practicum class so we were all willing and determined to make it successful. A week before the event we initially made plans and a list of tasks for each of the members.
