The Hero’s Journey is something that every human being goes through whether they realize it or not. We all go through different obstacles, some being more difficult than others, but at the end of the day we are all connected by the Hero’s Journey. We start with the separation stage, move on to the initiation stage, and then end up in the return stage. I myself have just gone through a cycle of the Hero’s Journey, when I happened to get my first B in a class, AP Spanish Language. It all started last year, freshman year, when all of the students were picking their classes for the following school year on Naviance.

I was ecstatic! I thought it would be a good thing for an AP course to be easy, as I was not thinking about the AP exam then. My first AP class, and it was going to be an easy A. Little did I know it was going to be almost the opposite. The first day of sophomore year rolled around and it was time to step foot into Mrs. Burrell’s class. Boy, was I surprised when I walked in and there was a new teacher, Mrs. Padilla. This is when the “Road of Trials” began. From the very first day she had stressed about the importance of the AP test. She gave us all of the AP rubrics, a sheet of transition words to use in our writing pieces, and she even showed us the agenda she had planned out for the rest of the year. As the year went on, I got accustomed to her teaching style and I was doing well for the first few months. As the assignments got more challenging, my grade seemed to be slowly dropping. It usually dropped .01%, but that was still something. In all honestly, I wasn’t worried as I’d always got by doing the bare minimum. By the time the final rolled around my grade was at a 91.34%. I no longer had a safety cushion, and I knew I needed to work extra hard to acheive my goal of ending the semester with an A. When I heard that the final was only worth 15% of our
A Field Guide for the Hero’s Journey it’s a guide that inspire us to want to become better to become heroes of our lives. Jeff Sandefer and Rev. Robert A Sirico inspired me with this book. While I was reading it I had the feeling that I want to go out and show the world who I am, and what can I do. I want to become a hero.
The movie Pitch Perfect is a great example of the Hero’s Journey, without being too obvious. It follows a college freshman, Becca Mitchell, who has no desire to attend college. She begins the steps to the Hero’s Journey when the Bellas ask her to join their acapella group. She refuses them, because they seem uptight and boring. Later on, Chloe, her mentor, hears Becca singing in the shower and convinces her to go to tryouts.
The Hero's Journey is a form of story structure that can be seen in almost all stories. The Hero's Journey is a twelve stage structure that travels through the ordinary world, call to adventure, refusal, meeting with the mentor, crossing the threshold, tests, approach to the inmost cave, ordeal, reward, the road back, resurrection, and ends with the return with the elixir. The Hero's Journey structure seems to fit into any story because of the story arcs that are followed by the heroes of stories. A great example of this is the movie, Toy Story. From the characters to the story arc Toy Story oozes with the structure of the Hero's Journey.
and you will have what you seek. Your redemption is before you. I know you remember when God blocked the sun from shining and caused the moon to turn red as a sign and worked miracles against your enemies. He wanted to prove His word that you are the chosen and to endorse holiness and devotion. See what a calamity it will be for you to lose what you have longed to have because you choose to be one of the crowd.
How did you become the person who you are today? Each one of us takes personal pathways in life. Many outside forces become positive or negative forces which through cause and effect, change who we are for better or worse. Do you believe that you can achieve all that you set out to achieve?

I clenched my stomach as we drove down the road. My eyes focused on one star in the sky, I knew if I pulled my eyes away my insides would be out and exposed to everyone. My cheeks stung from tears and my breaths were short as we drove to my church. as we pulled up it took me a while to open the car door, my hands were shaky and weak. friends hugged me and cried as I buried my head into their shoulders, the little light of hope I had left in my heart was burning out and I could feel it.
Would the statement, all heroes and heroines are originated from the same basis be true? Most likely, ones favorite hero novel would follow the hero’s journey which is the cycle of the hero’s adventure involving different archetypes. A hero novel does not necessarily have to involve supernatural powers and the hero does not necessarily have to save the world; a hero can go through the hero’s journey to save one person or to reveal a hidden truth.

Midwinterblood written by Marcus Sedgwick is one example of a novel that fits into the hero’s journey archetype.

Walking through the forest, I notice the warm sunlight rapidly beginning to fade, I turned around, jumping to see that where I once saw home, was now concealed by trees. A sudden wave of anxiety hits me, seeing darkness creep in, feeling as if it’s slowly taking a hold of me. I break into a reckless sprint, searching for some way back home.

It was Tuesday. The day we found it, it was exciting at first but soon it became a nightmare. Ben and I were hiking just a little outside Saint George in Utah. We had been hiking for about three hours already along the trail we hike at least once a year when we travel down here but this year we found ourselves off the beaten path in an unfamiliar area.
