High school was an extreme thrill from the first day of my freshman year. As I stepped off the school bus and entered the building, I knew that Brewbaker Technology Magnet High School would be my home for the next four years. BrewTech was ranked the number five school in the state, so I knew I was among the elite and had big shoes to fill. As I began to stroll the halls to locate my class, I was greeted by smiling faces of students and teachers a like. With minor bumps in the road, I completed my freshman year in high school acquiring friends that I still have today. Rumor had it that completing the tenth grade without a drop in my GPA guaranteed me a spot in the 2015 graduating class of BrewTech. Aware of what I was up against, I went into
Hosting Thanksgiving was always a tradition at my house. We would always have my family down at my house every year for as far back as I can remember. That is, until this year. This year, my family and I went down to South Carolina for Thanksgiving. It was a blast! We stayed on a resort, and the nearest golf club made dinner for everyone on the resort. All we had to do was pick it up. I was out with my father and two brothers, named Christopher and Stephen, going for a driving tour of the surrounding areas nearest the resort. The tour was extremely scenic, with palmetto trees everywhere. I just so happened to be looking out the window and said a little too loudly, “STOP!”.

You can’t always live for happiness/pleasure because it won’t always happen the way you want it to . Although, parents recently tossed books into the streets in front of some schools and burned them. It is causing the parents to be unhappy and ruin books. This matters because they are ruining things because they are unhappy with it.
Around a year ago I was introduced to two little boys. They were brothers who had been put into foster care because of at home abuse. The oldest brother is Colt and the youngest is Crew. Colt has down syndrome and Crew was born with a life threatening tumor in his skull. They are cared for by their foster mother, Nikki. She worked a full time job and needed help taking care of them, so I volunteered to help. Little did I know that a simple babysitting job would change my life.
This was a decision that had been haunting me for months. I wanted to transfer my senior year from my arts high school to the more traditional high school setting. I had two choices in front of me. One, leave behind my friends, start over, and take a leap of faith. Or two, stick it out and be unhappy for a year. This constant battle seemed to never leave my head.
Have you ever cut off someone’s limb? I nearly did, when I was ten years old. It all happened in a moment, a quick slice, blood all over the dirty snow, tainting the already tainted snow, but into a blot of red rather than a shade of gray. Blood pooling up as the adult present was freaking out, frantically calling the mountain’s emergency line. My sister and I not really realizing the severity of the injury, we sat there as we waited for people to help.
One day while heading to my car from leaving work, I notice a homeless man near the dug out of the baseball field where I parked my car. He was playing with a harmonica. I notice how wonderful he sounded, so I complimented him and gave him a tip. It was only a dollar but he reacted as if it was one hundred dollars. He was so happy, he asked if he could sing a song for me and I replied Yes! After he sung his song for me, he shook my hand and told me I was a great
Every single day, society tries to define my cultural identity. I struggle trying to set myself apart from the norm but, being a modern American teenage girl, I find myself being influenced by what is considered “cool.” It attempts to make me the “perfect” version of myself. But I am not what society wants me to be.
Sweat dripped down my brow, the dusk sun shimmering slightly through the trees. The light cast an orange glow on everything. The gnats and mosquitoes began their hunt for food as everything settled down. neither I nor the other men would settle. We couldn 't.
Food, like many others would say, has always had a substantial impact on my life. My experiences and memories with food have been both enlightening and discouraging. From making new friends through banquets and social events, to being bullied in primary school at the lunch table, food has formed who I am as an individual today. When I think back at all the memories I have, I find that I recall holiday memories more than any other recollection. Since holidays are usually centered around food and togetherness, they have been the most impactful for me. Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays, has always held a sentimental value in my heart. Each Thanksgiving I am reminded of past years; the sweet and savory smells
