The deafening roar from the crowd filled my ears, as it had done so many times before. I reached down, picked up my ear pieces lying across my shoulders, and placed one in each ear. As the stagehand passed me the mic, my pulse quickened. Standing on the platform beneath the stage, waiting for it to rise, my shoulders tightened. Fourteen years, performing on stages around the world hadn't banished my pre-show jitters. Nearly every time I took the stage, those familiar butterflies in the pit of my stomach, plagued me to the point of nausea at times. Rising up into the fog, I grip tightly to the mic. As the fog settled, the laser lights flashed green, orange, yellow, blue and purple beams across the dark arena, the dancing light show gradually
The mission of Houston Baptist University is to give a learning background that imparts understudies an enthusiasm for scholastic, otherworldly, and proficient greatness as an aftereffect of our focal admission, "Jesus Christ is Lord."
It is the matter of common knowledge that the American Dream is a conception referring to a desire of having a social regulation in which every male and female individual is capable of reaching the fullest importance that is normally unattainable, and be distinguished by the community for their true substance, despite the fortunate conditions of the status. Moreover, this idea denies any limits or boundaries and provides equal opportunities for people of any age, gender, or race. “The Great Gatsby” and “Bodega Dreams” feature characters that most clearly represent a desire or indifference to join such a society. After all, the American dream is not different for a person of color in “Bodega Dreams” and “The Great Gatsby” because both characters view it as money, love, having a knowing name as well as being successful. There is no reason for the dream to be divergent for a person of another race.

Crashing waves on a beach with a magnificent sunset in the background, a picture perfect scene for a summer romance. The magic mood is quickly turned gloomy by the sweet Australian accent of Sandy Olsson exchanging her goodbyes with her summer love, Danny Zuko. The opening scene of Grease may seem [depressing] but it sets up for one of the most interesting love stories put to film.
Your work changed my view of self by realizing that I don’t have a bad life. Growing up, my parents would always fight, drank a lot, my dad was rarely home, my mom was unhappy, and I never really felt like I had an actual family. I witnessed a lot of bad things that happened between my parents when they fought and is something I’d never wish upon anyone. My parents got divorced when i was 9, which I took very hard because I had to live with my mom by court and I missed my dad a lot. I thought having divorced parents was hard but after reading A Child Called “It”, I was appreciative of my childhood because I wasn’t abused, wasn’t treated badly by my mom, and was loved by both of my parents. Although my parents would physically fight, I was never abused. Some nights my dad would leave when my mom would fight with him but I would always sit by the front door waiting for him until he came home. I lived with my mom after the divorce and it was easy at first because I was young but as I
The analysis I made was based on Douglas McGray’s article “Lost in America”. You did a great job starting your introduction in a creative way using a question as attention-grabber. It is an effective strategy to grab the reader’s attention. You briefly summarized the article’s main points; it provides readers a brief explanation of what will be further analyzed. You also established a very solid thesis statement with a purpose, audience and rhetorical device being analyzed. It shows that you have a strong understanding of the purpose of the article. However, in order to make your thesis clearer, you should specify the author’s purpose of persuading or informing his audience. Saying only that the author argues does not specify his purpose toward
The road to the white house and the heroic journey have many similarities because it is the story of how a hero leaves his/her home to overcome obstacles and reach the goal they set out to do. While doing this project I was able to use the steps of the heroic journey and relate them to the presidential election process. I would like to reflect on the project as a whole and explain how the hero 's journey fits with the presidential quest. When I first started this project I thought it was going to be a walk in the park, I was wrong. I didn 't realize the amount of research was needed in order for this project to be put together correctly. I liked this project because I go to dive into what each step of the presidential journey is like not just
‘Flash Dance’(1983) dir. Adrian Lynn follows the story of Alex Owens, a young 18 year old welder who dreams of one day being able to join an elite group of ballet dancers. In comparison to, ‘West Side Story’ the narrative of ‘Flash Dance’ is one that concentrates on the women and how they control their bodies, the plot focuses on the passion and lustfulness in a relationship compared to previously mentioned filmed which concentrates on the love aspect of romance. ‘Flash Dance’ challenges the patriarchal system that Alex, as a woman, finds herself in.
One of my accomplishments that I am proud of is the Wanted Poster I made of Grendel, from the story Beowulf, for my senior English class. It was real fun to work on because I made him look like myself, but with a six pack. Every time I showed it to some it put a big smile on their face. This was a group assignment, but I couldn’t find a partner so I just worked on it myself. Even though I didn’t get any help on it and didn’t use any colors like the other groups did, I really liked the way it turned out, and found it to be as good a quality as everybody else’s. I got a pretty good grade on it too, which was
In Science class, we needed to select a type of Hawaiian Honeycreeper and make a "newsletter" about the specie 's adaptive radiation. We also, needed to make a personal story of their life in Hawaii and the background life of the Honeycreeper we chose. I chose the Palia, this is one of the most extremely endangered honeycreepers. This assignment dresses thinking and problem solving because there were many obstacles to complete the project. First, was getting enough information on the honeycreeper, finding the right format for the project, creating a adaptive radiation graph and making a personal story. I needed to come up with different solutions to complete my project. I am really proud of my final product. The format and the newspaper style I made for my project took a lot of time and effort. This was actually one of my biggest problems. At first, I made the format for my newspaper which took a long time. Then, when the days started to narrow down, I didn 't have enough time to finish it. I had to come up with a different and quicker way to finish my newspaper. I searched online for a format and I found one and was

As a student one of my strengths is organization. I can say I can keep my school materials and notebooks organized in a way that I and others can comprehend. The reason I can say I am organized is because, I have hardly ever had in the past or present any issues with trying to find homework or assignments because I always kept my materials for each class organized and in a place I could easily find. Another strength I have is social skills. I can believe that I communicate with others well in a group. The reason for this is that I can explain topics in a group if someone does not understand, I can say that this skill came with confidence to speak up and trust myself.
