When you feel like you don’t belong, everything can feel foreign to you. A place that you’ve spent your whole life can feel just as unfamiliar as one visited for the first time. In the short story “The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven” by Sherman Alexie, we meet a character that feels out of place everywhere he goes. Due to his Native American heritage in a white American culture, he feels like there is no true place for him to call home. The narrator expresses this by saying “Sometimes, though, I would forget where I was and get lost.
The nerve of that fella, askin’ me to go to Gatsby’s funeral! It’s none of his beeswax tellin’ me to do anything. We need to live in the present and livin’ in the present ain’t reminiscing ‘bout the dead. It is a shame he got bumped off, but it’s done and dusted. You know he used to be a gutter rat from the middle of nowhere?
Imagine announcing a weather report for the fiercest blizzard of all time. Now imagine waiting under grey skies and icy winds for a bus that 's purpose is to drive you through it. It was a cloudy day in Boston and I was waiting for a ride home. All methods of public transportation were delayed. I 've always disliked having to take the metro and longed for the day I could drive myself, not having to depend on anyone.
There isn’t much I remember from elementary school, I never thought anything I did before jr high really mattered. However there is one thing I won’t be able to forget about. Not because it was particularly significant to me, but because it was significant to my father who always brings it up. I’m sure if he hadn’t reminded me of it so frequently I would’ve forgot about it a long time ago. You see, in fifth grade I had a really scrawny nerdy friend who’d get picked on quite often for being like so, and one day he told his dad who also worked with my father and told him that I would stand up for him when he was getting bullied.
“Started from the bottom now were here”is a lyric from Drake and Drake got to where he is by accepting his first opportunity. Had Drake not chosen that option he wouldn 't have gotten to the top. Drake jumped at his opportunity like a kangaroo and made a living out of it. In the same way, Drake took his opportunities one should embrace all of their opportunities. When an opportunity presents itself, one should embrace it.
Depression is a silent killer. I remember waking up one morning to find my mother —a particularly tough woman—sitting at the edge of her bed, hair brush in one hand and an open palm in the other with a defeated, glazed, stare on her face. That sight scared the reasoning out of me. I did not know what was was wrong; I did not know what to do. I was scared.
Have you ever thought about going through time and rewrite the wrong you did at some point? Was it because you failed that math test or you messed up with your high school crush? Or did you simply do something so wrong that you ended up burning that bridge of trust. Say you do go back in time and alter that specific event. Would everything go back to the way it was.
I was sitting in the Doctor Who covered room, looking at the confusing, empty schedule, I had 30 minutes to fill in my life for the next year. Junior High. I am going into seventh grade. I thought of a younger me, walking through the halls of Webster, thinking, "I 'm a second grader now". But, she has a long way to go.
I wish I could go back to kindergarten. “The same boys who got detention in elementary school for beating the crap out of people are now rewarded for it. They call it football.” Laurie Halse Anderson. High school is a rough place like elementary with testosterone and steroids.
Everything is not as Bad as it Actually is I believe to always consider every possible outcome of life and not make judgements too easily. This all started about a month ago, it was the middle of summer, school was just about to start and I was very nervous about starting high school, along with being excited for learning new things, although I was mostly scared about getting a bad grade. As the days approached, many of my friends and I discussed of how we were all scared for our first week, scared of homework, tests, essays, and all sorts of frightening things.
