Little do these people know, I shared a bathroom with a spider for months on end just this past year. I’ll admit, when I first noticed the spider my immediate want was to call down to my dad and have him rid the creature from my presence. This, however, did not happen. I let the spider stay there that day, assuming it would be gone the next. A week passed, and my assumptions, like assumptions often do, proved false.
In my seventh grade science course, we were given basic information about anions and cations, we learned how to use models to create chemical formulas, and we conducted several experiments. The only one of these experiments that I can remember in detail is when we were stationed at bunsen burners, given chemicals, and were told to find out what colors the chemicals burnt. The experiments we did were often more to keep us entertained and we were never truly explained all of the science behind
In 1925 without telling the head of the school board, Mr. Jordan Ida Bidson, a fourteen year old takes over her teacher’s job secretly after the teacher left when an emergency popped up with her mother. Ida and her fellow classmates continued on with their studies hoping not to repeat everything that they learned this year. Until the county examiner comes, she finds out what they are doing but agrees to not tell Mr. Jordan if every child takes the exam. Ida and Tom, the only two eighth graders in the school were the only ones that had to take it to pass the eighth grade and move on to high school. Ida accidentally told Mr. Bixler, Herbert Bixler’s dad that they have not told Mr. Jordan about what they were doing at the school house.
For Jane, because she had the thought of never being able to draw again, that meant she had to secretly begin practicing with her left hand. At first, her mom downloads a drawing software on her laptop, but Jane doesn’t think it portrays the same way as actual pens on paper. So she starts by drawing on a leftover gum wrapper she found in a trash bag. Resembling Jane, when I was injured I couldn’t do anything for the first few weeks. But on the days when I had free time I would work on ball handling drills and my shooting technique.
4 weeks had went by and I ended up getting a call from the police one morning “Mr. Reed, we would like you to come down to the station to identify a Jane Doe.” At this point I didn’t think at all this would be her, I just thought she had left because she needed time away from the family. So me and my son were on our way and I said to him “No need to worry son, your mom is fine, I doubt this will be her.” When we got there, we walked in and I said to a officer, “We are here to look at a Jane Doe” and she said “Go down stairs and take a left and go straight until you see the door that says morgue.” We walked in and see a row of deceased people and me and my son just glance at each other and I rub his back and say “Be prepared son, this could
Her dad did not like this and refused to let Ruby go to school but Ruby's mom talked him in to letting her go to school. The next day when she went to school her parents came with her and they spent the entire day in the principal's office. She spent it there so that they were not tortured by the class. Today she continues to fight for more rights for African Americans. Ruby Bridges was born September 8, 1954 she was the child of
I had one client on probation who was ordered to be in counseling before she could get off of probation. She was also ordered to take anger management before she could get off probation. AMD did not offer anger management so I found her a place that she could take anger management for eight weeks. She had to come up with the money to take the classes, and she did it and was able to get off of probation. Sadly, she died in
I believe in naturalness. When I was little, all that my mother used on my hair was detangler and leave in conditioner. As I got older I grew to hate my hair more and more because of it’s frizzy curls. By the time I got to high school I got tired of straightening my hair everyday and I started to use gel in it but that still wasn’t cutting it for me. Now, I’m a junior and I’ve experimented and tested tons of products that are supposed to be for curly, frizzy hair.
When I was in 6th grade I couldn’t focus in class or focus on really anything. I was constantly moving and had to be active or I’d start getting body shakes just to get energy out. When my parents became aware of this they were immediately concerned and took me to the doctor soon after. I was taken to a testing center where they put a weird looking red hat on my head, put some sort of gel on the top of my head and asked me a bunch of questions. The whole procedure took about an hour and by the end I was diagnosed with ADHD.
“For how long did she say I will get to stay there and when do I leave” I asked “She said she will need help for the whole summer so you will leave right away when school ends” answered mom That summer changed me into a better person. Before I got the exciting news about me babysitting I was always shy and did not talk much. But since I did not know anyone except my great aunt Maria, I was so scared and I honestly did not know what or who to expect. All I knew was that the couple had three kids; a one year old, a two year old, and a twelve year old. Since I did not know how they looked and I had only talked to Bob on the phone once, so I decided to look him up on
My interest in Epilepsy started before I even began to get seizures, for the reason that my uncle and aunt used to get seizures too and my mom would give me brief stories of them. I have relentlessly gotten on my computer just to research news on interesting subjects, including Epilepsy; through this I have gained a lot of knowledge on various topics, sadly I don’t take the time to memorize every bit of detail. But I have learned that there is no cure for Epilepsy, just treatments, is caused by abnormal brain waves, and can last from two years to a lifetime. So I conducted a survey to see how much people knew about Epilepsy and how many have had any previous experience dealing with it, and since it is a very common disorder that affects any
Every night, my mother scanned through this book, hoping to find a list of possible names. My name might have been Jonathon, but when my parents went back to St. Peter’s for her second ultrasound, they noticed that I was holding my two siblings up with my hands. This made her rethink my name as she now wanted my name to symbolize strength. After another month of researching,
The problem with that was I did not know how long it would take to update the computers and I had to pick up my daughter before the daycare closed at 5:30 P.M. I attempted to update the computers when they took the students out to conduct an exercise. SFC Joe Smith came into the classroom where I was conducting the computer updates cussing and screaming. I tried to explain to him that if I conducted the updates as he requested I would be late picking up my daughter from the daycare. He did not
Acne became a real problem for me starting at the age of eleven. I tried every possible method to avoid it; washed my face twice a day, saw a dermatologist, and I even started birth control to see if that would help. I became accustomed to having acne so I started to work my life around it. I started wearing makeup every day from the age of twelve because I began to hate my skin; I would not even leave my house without makeup on. This partially stems from the societal norm that women should have perfectly clear smooth skin.
