Does it mean random acts of kindness ? Or maybe a day where no one is being picked on or teased? These would both be the perfect examples of pink shirt day, however not all kids know the true mean, yes they have all heard the backstory, but they do not know the true meaning. Some kids do not realise those who do not come to class, not because they are sick, however because they cannot bring it upon themselves to go somewhere where they are named called, teased or pushed around. “Bully Proof Classroom: Confidential” shows those kids stories who could not come to class and because of that, they either failed a grade or their marks were not very high.
I couldn’t tell anyone because I felt as if my problems weren’t important enough. I didn’t know what to do. People say just talking to someone, but I was never good at tell my parents how I feel. I didn’t feel like talking to a teacher or administrative staff member because I didn’t know them. Not amount of saying exercise will help, or saying that I just need to make more friends would help either, because I never like bothering people, or even feeling like I could bother people, I hate being selfish and I hate just hated how I felt, it made me feel worse.
Her use of imagery paints a picture for the readers which ultimately helps to make learning the writing process easier. For example, when she says “the critics would be sitting on my shoulders, commenting like cartoon characters”, this creates a humorous and memorable image of shoulder sized critics (Lamott 469). This step in the process is unusual from what other authors say, yet it’s interesting which engages the reader. Lamott also uses similes and metaphors throughout the essay to explain what it is like for most struggling writers. She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468).
Another lie that Ericsson talked about was omission lie. Omission involves telling most of the truth minus one or two key facts whose absence changes the story completely. Sometimes telling an omission can hurt you or hurt the person your telling it too. A couple years ago, I was getting bullied because I was the smallest out of all the people in my class. It went on for months but I never had the courage to speak up about it because, I felt that no one could help me.
On the other side of the spectrum is The Courtship of Mr. Lyon. This version of Beauty and the Beast I feel would not be appropriate for younger children. I would say this version is fitting for grades 11th and 12th. Out of all the versions of Beauty and the Beast that I have read, this one is my favorite. I love the writer’s usage of language and vocabulary to paint a powerful and strong vision in my mind as I read.
Either way, that stereotype doesn't help. Going back to my childhood and family background, I was the first one to make a mess; I did not live up to my parents' expectations even if I can. I do well in school, sports, and music, but I just didn’t feel like doing more because I was so unmotivated. I don't really remember a lot of childhood stuff. Let's skip to the ones I remember: Everything got
I didn’t tell anyone for a while. Not my teachers, siblings, or even my family. My parents still don’t even know. My other friends at that time never really understood that I was getting bullied but that’s because I didn’t tell them either. It was really complicated because whenever someone saw that I was down and they asked if anything was wrong, I would act like nothing had happened the rest of the day but inside, only I knew that I was being bullied in the sixth grade.
The resources provided really helped me make sense of my topic and help me understand how to do each aspect of the experiment step by step. Although I know my teacher is not responsible for anything science fair related, it would have been helpful if through the writing process she could show me exactly how she would want my reflection paper to be. Personally, I prefer to work alone on most projects because then I can make sure everything goes as planned exactly as I want it to. A con of working individually, however, is that when the experiment gets difficult there is no one I can rely on to help me problem solve, I had to figure everything out myself. I decided not to go to science fair because I felt even though my project was good, I wasn’t sure if it could compete with the other projects.
When I was in middle school, I’d see many girls complaining about how boys were disturbing them. They would touch them without permission, or they would spread rumors about them and give them obscene looks. I remember that none of the teachers cared at all. They’d just say “C’mon girls, it is not a big deal. That’s how boys joke now”.
There is no running, and there definitely is no making loud noises like yelling that disturbs a nearby neighbor. We have been taught those actions are inappropriate for that kind of setting. Just like it would be inappropriate to use slang or shortened versions of words we use when texting to
Seeing potential in others keeps people away from negativity. Lastly, I did not have Discipline as one of my trait, but I also feel as if everything needs to be in order. When something is not in order; it is your job to make it organized, so then everything is in a working
I finally realized that the road I was on was not where I wanted to be. I felt useless, and so I would put such little effort into the things I would do. But despite not knowing who I was, I knew I wasn’t going to let depression define me. My philosophical friend, Ryan, told me to put my mind into your music. I was enlightened as he explained that music was the path to success and creativity.
My own body had failed me and I had failed the team. I 'm sure it didn 't seem like a big deal to anyone else but it was to me because I had faced this forward many a time and he had never flat out beaten me like that. It meant that if he could beat me then all the other offensive people on other teams could also beat me just as easy. After the game it was all I could think about. It haunted me to the point I didn 't hear my dads usual commentary on my game.
Being honest, I didn’t look at any of my notecards but having them was making me feel more secure and less stressful since I shouldn’t worry that I am going to forget some concept or formula at the time of the exam. It is also very important for you to understand the material not just memorize it. Otherwise, you probably will forget most of the information right after your final exam. So much energy in this class. Every time when walked out the class I was ready for new goals and achievements in my life.
