When I first became a Mother, I knew that my life was going to change in so many ways. In my last year in high school, when I was eighteen, I was pregnant with my son. When I found out I was expecting all I could think was, “I am not going to make it”, and that I am going to drop out of school and was asking myself, “Why did this happen to me?” I ended up telling one of my best friends that I was expecting and I remember that he told me not to quit because I was almost done just in 3 months. So I didn’t give up, and we did all of our senior trips and I continued to do so much when I didn’t show anything. Luckily nothing extreme happen to me, I stayed away from things that will put me in danger like the rides at the water parks.
Over the Border Every year my family decides what to do for the holidays and where to go. Most of the time I have no say in it because my uncles insist on visiting or they invite us over. It doesn’t help that all of my family lives in Texas, California, and Mexico. This year has been the first time that we have spent Christmas and New Years here at home with just my family in a long time. Last year we took a long trip to Chihuahua, Mexico which is the biggest part/state of Mexico where my mother is from.
I thought I had hit rock bottom, I was about to commit self-harm and there was only one person who I had trusted I told her and that was my best friend. Somehow she always helped me and she never gave up on me. My family didn 't notice until after, so they would probably ask themselves why I would think about doing that. And now that I think about it there are many people who have been or going through the same as I was before. On the news you don 't often see many people who have committed self-harm.
sometimes I feel like I let down my baby sisters because me and my step mom would fight so much that .2 yr just moved in with my dad but I didn't want to leave them and I feel like I failed them as a big sister and it's just stuff that I wish I could make up but I can't. I've loved a lot of people down with a lot of my actions during my high school year Make the smartest decisions at all I got in a quarter bit of trouble and I feel like I could have been better to my dad because me and my dad did fight quite a bit but I really seen him and just when he died it made me realize like while you really got to start taking other people's feelings into consideration and change me a lot I'm a very different person
Finally, after nearly 2 weeks of driving we arrived in California.In the beggining, work was hard. My brother, father, and I worked for long hot days in the long fields with many other children,and fathers. Eventually, we started getting the hang of things,but it definitely wasn’t any easier. My mom cleaned and cooked, well Anna made new friends in the camp. It was hard for our family to make the adjustment at first, but after a few weeks,we got into the routine of things.
It all seemed great, but was I ready or would I ever be ready to see people in their worst days? It took me a whole year in college to realize that firefighting was something I did not want to pursue. Desperately looking for a new major, I started to consider teaching, but purely for selfish reasons. However, somewhere during my second year of college, there was a significant spark that led me to want to pursue teaching for a different reason. In high school, sports were everything, maintaining a good GPA was crucial.
I've been looking forward to coming to this beauty for the past 3 months ever since my mom had finally agreed to let me go. Although she didn't want me to go alone no one else would go with me so she bought me one round trip ticket to a small Alaskan town, with a connecting flight to Lake Clark. I thought that my high expectations may be lowered as soon as I got there, but I was wrong. I could only see some of the 4 million acre park and the little that I could see had already taken me aback with it's beauty. I could see the Sitka Spruce and hoped
My first semester I had many obstacles; however, it was worth it because at the end I learned to not give up. An obstacle I overcame was getting classes. Since, I applied late to school due to not being able to decide which college would benefit me more I was behind with enrolling, for classes causing me to not be able to get classes. There were barely any classes left for me, but I eventually found the three classes I needed. Getting classes was difficult because it took me a week to finally get the classes I need.
“For how long did she say I will get to stay there and when do I leave” I asked “She said she will need help for the whole summer so you will leave right away when school ends” answered mom That summer changed me into a better person. Before I got the exciting news about me babysitting I was always shy and did not talk much. But since I did not know anyone except my great aunt Maria, I was so scared and I honestly did not know what or who to expect. All I knew was that the couple had three kids; a one year old, a two year old, and a twelve year old. Since I did not know how they looked and I had only talked to Bob on the phone once, so I decided to look him up on
The transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me. The 3 reasons why the transition was a big change for me was because I don't have classes with my friends, I don't have effective teachers, and my curfew was extended when I entered high school. Having to adapt to this change has been hard for me, but slowly I am getting used to it. Having different classes from my friends is one of the reasons why the transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me. For example, in middle school, I had all my class with my best friends.
When Bailey was young, he lived in Idaho with his parents, Paul and Lala Bailey. They did not fancy the idea of Dalene going to college because they did not want him to go away. He married his love Patricia and went to college for two years before running out of money. To pay for college he borrowed from his family and then paid them back during the summer, but this eventually gave way to money issues. Following that, he decided to join the National Guard in 1934.
During the start and the end of the fall semester year of 2015/20116 at Montgomery College, my life changed dramatically for me. Going back to school after graduating four years ago at Baltimore Freedom Academy high schoolHigh School has been challenging for me, but of course it’s challenging for anybody with the same circumstances of not being academically active for all those years, and almost forgetting all the retained information that was given from previous teachers. I felt like my brain was rotting, yet the really bad part about it is that, I wasn’t doing what I loved, which was playing organized college basketball. Throughout my journey of the fall semester, challenges came my way from left to right, but the hardest of all that I’ve faced are adjusting to the student athlete life style again at a college level, trying to learn and complete all that’s given to me from my professor, and working a part time job to help support myself. Upon my preparation for the fall semester, I was able to work out during the summer at the Montgomery College gym, the gym was packed with other students that where were in the same
