The music softened and the curtains opened to a primitive dance, causing mass hysteria throughout the theatre. The audience felt they were being attacked, for they had paid and dressed in ornate gowns to see the beauty and grace they feel reflected who they were, but instead they were shown a primal, barbaric scene. This piece had disrupted the order and harmony that one could associate ballet with. When hearing of this piece in
She knew she was being watched by everyone in the room, and even changed to a second elaborate dress, which also stated that “her personality had also undergone a change.” She received a compliment from Mrs. McKee, and her response to McKee was a look of sarcasm that screamed for more compliments, which she did get. Myrtle also talked about men and how she basically used them for fortune and reputation and even showed her flirtatious side to Nick. Throughout the book, this is what is seen for the character Myrtle, and these traits of hers set the tone for her character in this society she lives in. In this first party scene, Tom right away shows his very aggressive side. First off, Tom is passing around the drinks with no end near in sight, essentially insisting the group to drink more, and this shows how pushy he could get without realizing it.
Why do I do this stupid shit to myself? Then walking through the door I thought FUCK!! I sucked it up and took a deep breath. Once I got into the room I felt better and just went fucking crazy by acting myself and being weird. I saw the bestie aka that sock puppet thing.
She promptly answered the unasked question. -You’ll grow too tall to ever be a professional ballerina, you have pointy knees,- who had ever noticed it? -and you look way too clumsy. You really thought someone like you could dance?- In spite of the teacher’s meanness and how confused I felt, too confused to even feel offended, I smiled at her, just slightly. At the time I didn’t know how to act if not gently, and gently I answered.
I one day came across a video of a choreographer by the name of Wade Robinson and my jaw hit the floor. The way this man moved to different types of music made me instantly feel like dancing, not to mention I thought maybe that could be me one day. Ever since than I grew a love for watching a variety of choreographers, mainly hip-hop ones and I would re-watch their videos over and over again. Soon after I would mirror these videos I have watched and just dance in the mirror for hours without paying attention to the time that had passed by. My mom soon noticed after catching me multiple times, mainly because I was really shy at the time that dance was something I was extremely interested in and soon after signed me up for beginner classes.
Students don’t take advantage of the opportunities they are provided in high school, like dual-enrollment, that could save them time and money in college. Every year students are given the opportunity to do dual enrollment which would save them hundreds to thousands in college, but most miss their chance and are required to take remedial classes in college. According to statistics, “Complete College America reports that almost 50% of the students entering 2-year colleges are required to take remedial classes. ( Rath Par.15)”. To further explain, due to students not taking advantages in high school are required to take remedial classes they most-likely took in high school and pay around triple the amount.
At first I thought he was trying to tell me he was one if those employees, but then he kept going on about how they had offered him the job of managing the offices in Cheyenne. As soon as I heard those words I started crying and shouting I don 't want to move, I like it here! Once they got me to settle down they explained that moving was the last resort. But staying here also means more responsibilities and having less expenses. Not thinking at all, the first thing I was worried about was that I wouldn’t be able to go to our local corn maze every weekend.
I would live with a few friends in a house or large apartment. All of us would have jobs and we’d split rent and utilities. This isn’t sustainable many years past college. People have lives and move and fall out of touch, but it is a quixotic dream of mine. It fits into my plan for the future as marriage and kids don’t appear there.
In China, because of the largest population, not every student could get admission to higher education in colleges. So attending a key middle school was essential to enter universities. With my diligence and intelligence, I distinguished myself to enter the key secondary school in my hometown----Yibin No.1 middle school, which is famous as “the cradle of future college students”. I would like to describe my life in secondary school as a painful but joyful journey. In this six-year period, I suffered a lot from study pressure physically and psychologically because I had to give up all my hobbies and spare all my leisure time working on the college entrance exam questions.
Megan climbed up and we passed her the bucket, we slanted the bucket so the next person to open the back door it would fall and the snow would fall on them. However, our plan did go as smoothly as we hoped as when we shouted on my mum she opened the back door but instead of the snow just falling out the bucket fell too and hit her on the head. It was the funniest moment of my life by far. Just to see my mums face look so surprised was amazing. I often think back to this moment and wish I could do my childhood all over again just for these special moments.
