I was named first team all league, first team all miami valley and team MVP. A few days after it had ended I went to the hospital for my surgery. Again, I had to miss days of school for this. I missed days for doctors appointments and therapy. And there went my grades again.
I had to stay an extra month because i had symptoms of meningitis. All the nurses treated me like I was their own. My mom always told me that those nurses were always holding me and putting bows in the little hair I had. After this story, my appointments were always filled with questions about becoming a nurse. As I got older the questions always got more about college and less about curiosity.
In 2007, when Naiara turned 7 she took her to live to Chicago. Karina and Naiara lived together since then until 2012, when Karina’s dad got sick and she had to come back to Santo Domingo to take care of him.

So my mom taught me to not be negative or rude to those who had that one barbie everyone wanted so bad. But when we did have money, I would get rewarded with a toy because I would be doing good in school or behaved well at home. However when it came to my older siblings, they weren’t gifted with the same opportunities like me. My brother and sister were high school drop outs, so they really didn’t set the right example for me.
She ended up giving up on these magazine beauty advice, including other advice that her friends would suggest to her such as tape, make-your-own-crease glue, and sang ka pul. Chung tried it all, except the sang ka pul because she was afraid of the surgery. Her mother continuously brought up the question about whether or not she wanted to get the sang ka pul, but every time she brought it up, Chung always said no. Chung didn’t understand why her mother couldn’t accept her without creased eyes. In the end, she had realized that “He looks at the heart, and that it really doesn’t matter how a person looks” (107).

But as the years went by, my parents, especially my mother, wanted me to do better and get all A’s on my report card in elementary school. Near the last few weeks of grade 7, I got my final report card and I was very disappointed in myself for not getting all A’s. Comparing Jing-mei’s life and mine, the report cards that my parents receive from me are like the tests that Jing-mei receives everyday from her mother. Furthermore, the disappointment that I felt for not meeting my parents expectations is probably how Jing-mei felt when she “began to die” with the thoughts of “raised
It’s an Ivy league school for people in the band. Her friends Jericho and Oliva helped her go do stuff that way she wouldn 't be inside all day. A few weeks later after the Josh’s death, she wasn 't feel good and went to the doctor. November waited in the lobby for hours waiting to see the doctor. Another hour went by, she felt terrible, and flew up many times.
They drove all the way to Ben Taub Hospital to give birth to a baby of 7 pounds and 5.3 ounces. Of so much excitement of having their first baby girl of the house. With so much care Juan, her husband, will go almost anywhere they look the baby. At first he told Maria if the baby was a girl he didn’t want her, but then he saw the beautiful eyes of this small baby in his hands and he knew in that moment that his baby girl was everything he wanted. After two days of being at the hospital Maria was finally able to go home with her daughter.
and I started to get genuinely worried because I knew this wasn’t my strong suit. English was never my good side; I’ve always been a math and science type of person. I began to ask myself, “why did I decide to take honors?” When I look back on the beginning of that year to the end, my confidence in inferring and just being able to get more out of a story skyrocketed. Without really telling me, Mr. Clayton taught me, in the simplest terms, not to give up.
They simply expected me to do well in school. In third grade, I was consistently scoring perfect on my spelling tests, however, once I scored a measly 3/5 and my parents spent a whole hour yelling at me, telling me that I had to stop playing video games and read more books. Everyday, I feel the pressure radiating from my parents. This is similar to the narrator’s situation, he’s being pressured

She had been married for a year and was trying for a family when she was diagnosed with a grade two astrocytoma, a form of brain cancer, on January 1, 2014. It all started on when she was having terrible headaches and they just kept coming back.
Scout is also criticized by her teacher in the beginning because she reads too well, which would be completely absurd today. “Now you tell your father not to teach you anymore … You tell him I 'll take over from here and try to undo the damage” (Lee 17). Can you imagine teachers today telling kids that they should not be learning? To Kill a Mockingbird really shows how much everything has changed in 80 years.
I was the exact opposite, a sixteen year old male! She continued to say that the aneurysm has been found at an early stage but that I still needed a brain surgery as soon as possible. When she said that I completely broke down crying, here I was studying for a law exam and the next thing I know is a doctor telling me they have to operate on my brain. My dad then told Dr.Hoffman about my law exam and said how can he notify my school of my situation in order to reschedule my exam
My grades didn 't allow me to enroll to the medical school. My grades were very good, but medical university required top grades such as 95% and up. Regrettably my grades as 91% considered as a failure in the medical school, so I changed my mind to be a Civil Engineering. I regret that I have chosen the easiest path of being a Civil Engineering, and I regret the time that I have missed without achieving my goal of being a doctor. I could just blame myself of not achieving my goal of being a doctor and I am not regret of studying Civil Engineering because I have learned a lot of interesting thing about the Environment and life.
