The Irony of Fate Picture this; it is your first day of high school. You are frantically walking to try and find room 205. Everything around you is a blur as you rush from door to door in hopes that the brass numbers above will say “205”. Suddenly, the bell rings and your stomach drops. Being late for class on the first day is not only petrifying, but it is embarrassing, because everyone turns their head to stare and laugh at you when you enter the class 15 minutes late.
They’re perceived as someone who is old, not the best looking, doesn’t smile, seems to not care for kids, or as if they are just there to do their job. This image of lunch ladies comes from movies, cartoons, and books children see or read. For example, the show Recess, The Simpsons, Liv and Maddie (a recent new show), Matilda, The Princess Protection Program and many more that are exaggerated truths. In these shows and movies, the cafeteria staff is always in hair nets, doesn’t smile, just slaps food on the plate that doesn’t look appealing and yells. With this image people have in mind, misconception comes up that every lunch lady is like that and this is not all true.
He got angry and made [the other boys] tie Wilfred up.” (Golding 116). It is barely over a day since he made his own clan, and he is already abusing his authority, and in a considerably more vicious manner than Ralph. At the start of his little campaign, Jack promised that his tribe would just go hunting and have fun all day. As soon he is in a position of power, however, Jack becomes a different person, ferociously beating Wilfred for no reason other than to assert his
José starts his routine again, only this time he puts no care into what he is doing as if he was just doing it to look normal and busy. He knows he will leave everything behind tonight, so he is just getting through the day preparing mentally. He returns home at noon to eat his lunch of dried beans and undercooked rice, he sits and eats quietly as he is alone as he always is, but there is a knock at the door and José rises up from his bed to answer it. “Hi José, may I come in?” Jesús asks already knowing the answer. “Of course” José replies.
“A positive attitude gives you power over your circumstances instead of your circumstances having power over you”-Joyce Meyer. In the story, “The Girl Who Was Born With Only Two Arms And Two Legs” by Stuart Baum, Quarta gets made fun of and, saves a friend but still gets bullied, But then she thinks of a really fun game and lots of people join her finally the bullys join her too. In the book, “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio, a boy August Pullman who likes to be called Auggie has a deformity and goes to school even though he has been homeschooled for his whole life and he gets bullied but makes friends who stand up for him and at the end of the year he earns a award and doesn 't regret going to school. Both Auggie and Quarta are similar by her attitude, how they’re outsiders, and how they overcome bullying. One way Auggie and Quarta are similar is their attitude.
I stood in front of what felt like a below zero, freezing meeting room, which was filled with the smell of everyone’s “nutritious” lunches, and gave a speech on why I should be voted in as the club president. Nobody knew who I was, a very shy soft-spoken girl, and by standing in front of that room, I was exposing myself to first hand, slap in the face, rejection. I didn’t win, I wasn’t even close in the running, but I gained more from that experience then I would have gained from winning. I gained confidence. I was proud of myself for facing my fear, and showing motivation to conquer
“It’s all about putting yourself in a man-meeting situation where you can⎯⎯” “Mama,” “I say, just wanting to end this conversation,” “would it really be so terrible if I never met a husband?” “ Don’t. Don’t say that, Eugenia. Why, every week I see another man in town over six feet and I think, If Eugenia would just try…” (Stockett 66) Skeeter goes against her mother’s wishes and society’s expectations to get married in college, even when everybody is pressuring her to go out on dates and eventually get married. Skeeter does not get married and she actually finishes college, which is very rare and something that white women don’t do in Jackson, Mississippi. She isn’t like her friends that dropped out of college to get married, even though that’s what her mother wanted her to do.
After I finish tidying up I walk along to the Mess Hall where we eat our meals. It’s probably one of the most exciting places in a prison there’s always a few table flipping’s and food fights but I tend to take no notice of it all. The menu for breakfast today is oatmeal, toast and boiled egg. The oatmeal is unsweetened and very chewy I have to force this down as I know it will be the only meal I get till dinner and the toast was more like bread. Once I finished eating I get up and take my tray over to the wash basin.
Lunch would be difficult because our food would float away slowly, and our drinks would come out of our straws in small balls. Also, being in zero gravity might distract everyone, because it would be so amazing. It also could cause people to be disoriented when they leave. With these new conditions, many things would need to change in the school. For example, We would need to start writing
