When she got to eighth grade, she had to take a test to continue onto high school. She always did very well in school and passed the test easily, but her parents got her a worker’s permit and she never went to high school. In some ways, I think she regrets not going, but she is constantly working and was most likely more than happy to help her family out. With or without high school, she is unbelievably intelligent and I am so proud to call her my grandma. Just sitting down with her for a short amount of time, I learned so much about the past and I definitely recommend you talk to an elder you know.
My Grandmother made sure to wake me up every morning to haul me of to school where I would meet my loving, devoted teachers and coaches. With their help I left John Edgar Howard elementary school with a strong head on my shoulders, and the devotion to strive for more. I had to move to a different elementary school because John Edgar Howard Elementary ended up being closed, because of the rough neighborhood. I then, attended Bradbury Heights; a school that I didn’t know existed. I was never exposed to many different neighborhoods, or opportunities.
Cheerleading Tryouts We had cheerleading tryouts at the end of last year. It was one of the most stressful times of my life. One of my biggest dreams was to become a cheerleader. Before cheerleading began I had more free time, played other sports, and spent more time with my family. During the week of tryouts we practiced right after school from 3:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M.
I walked around and listened to their responses. Tuesday when I arrived they were eating snack. After snack, they went outside for recess for fifteen minutes but by the time they put on all their winter clothes and took off all their winter clothes there were about twenty-five minutes invested into recess. Once all the winter clothes were off and put away Mrs. Sherwin had them read a Scholastic News article online and gave them a list of question that she had them look for in the readings. She called the activity a scavenger hunt because she wanted students to look for the
In high school, sports were everything, maintaining a good GPA was crucial. Football, soccer, and track were what were what took up most of my time until I had a big injury. Which made me forget about playing sports for a whole year. During this time, I looked for ways to stay busy. I came upon this special opportunity to work with wild rescued animals, At least that’s what the lady I
My dad had signed me up for a class for my grade in order to get ahead in regular school, but after twenty minutes, it was pretty clear that I had already went through this material during school. So, after an agonizing twenty minutes of receiving compliments by strangers about completing the pretest after five minutes and having the teacher call me to the front to demonstrate long division, while she went to have a conversation with the principal about what to do with me, they decided to put me in a class that had both fourth and fifth graders. Right now, I was
I practice frequently with my mom’s car, especially on my parallel parking. Of course I told all my friends and family that I was about to become a new driver. The day finally came. A day filled with excitement, but also a knotted stomach. All day I was thinking about all the possible mistakes I could make, touching the cones, going over the curb and not using the turning signals.
Hunting had become a major part of my life and I did not even have my license yet. When I turned six my dad decided I was old enough to take the assessment. I was thrilled and three long days later I was a licensed hunter. Every year my dad’s friend, Tom, from Columbus would come down to Oak Hill and hunt with us all week during the deer season. I was not allowed to go everywhere Tom and my father did until I was older but just being around them at the house was very entertaining to me.
Deer Hunting As my Dad and I pulled in the driveway around 11am, my Uncle Jack was about to go out hunting in the stand that everyone has been getting deer in. I couldn’t pass that up as he asked, “Would you like to go out with me?” I wasn’t sure I wanted to go out since I already went out this morning and stayed up late last night. Before I knew it, my Dad was getting my gun ready and loaded. I then climbed in the Razor with thoughts going through my head like should I really go out with him and not dad later? All dad can thought about is me getting my first deer?
One of the best days of my life was when we went deer hunting in South Dakota with my dad, brother, uncle and two cousins, but before I tell you about my trip let me tell you how it started. We left early in the morning to head to South Dakota where my cousin Jacob, who had just got a job as Game warden in Custer State Park, was taking us deer hunting. We got as far as Fargo, North Dakota when my cousin Keith asked my dad where our license were. Then to our surprise we forgot them back at home. We were lucky enough to have my two aunts and mom bring us the license because they were going to Fargo that day anyways for a girls shopping day.
I remember my mom and I repetitively filling out absent forms, so I could go compete at a horseshow. The make up work started to build up, and eventually it got to the point where riding and attending school seemed almost impossible. Fortunately, I knew a few people who used online programs, so they could compete and go to school. After researching for the right program, I enrolled to be an official online school student for my second semester freshman year. The program was perfect.
I know that outlining and main ideas of a lecture will help me when I will be review for a test. Taking break is key when writing a paper or anything. They longest that a college student we interviewed went without sleep was three days. Technology is a key for everything in college because without it you can not write any papers at all, laptops are the number thing that every college student will use. The way that I will have to talk to my teachers is saying hello and going to office hours where I can really focus about whatever I may need to
