She wants what she did not have: big house, better neighborhood, and all the riches that she can buy. However, her father tells her to not think like that because that is not the reason that makes her, her, but instead it is her background and her family. This was something that I found quite fascinating because this was how I perceived my life when I was in high school. Sophia’s perseverance and dedication to moving forward is impeccable. “I wish we lived on the other side of town.”
And, by the way, the idea of selling my virginity has never spread across my mind, though I had the soviet education with no religious component in it. I worked as a horse all the time – in the family and later to find my way out of it studying and working simultaneously and the same now – I work! That is only answer to any problem. I got the first job as a cleaner when I was ten, not officially of course. My mother was hired but I and my older sister did this work in fact.
My Educational Journey Today I would consider myself an average student. On occasion I tend to slack off but what student doesn’t. At the end of the day, I always try my hardest to be the best possible student I can be but, life isn’t perfect everyone has setbacks but we have to work through it. Don’t take obstacles as a negative switch them into a positive use them as motivation to keep going, Ralph Marston states “you turn a negative into a positive, you gain twice. You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force”.
I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were. I had been digging my own grave and I didn’t even know it.
My High school is the best school for me. In saying this I mean that my high school might not be the most challenging but it has helped me out in a lot of ways. With that in mind I have to admit that San Jacinto Christen Academy has not prepared me for college as I believe it should have. It has how ever made me a better person and who I am today. I am not prepared for the work that I am going to get when I attend college but I am prepared in a different way one that most people ever even think about.
Her town was not the richest in the world, but Brown could only go to the cheapest school in the town. She lived alone in a small wooden house on top of a hill. She never came out of her house unless she needed to buy something or to go to school. Brown had lots of friends until she was ten. Everybody loved her.
It made sense to me. I never had a moment in time where I wanted to give up in an english class because it was hard. As those 2 Failures on my transcript indicate, that was not the case for me in math. With time to look over the outcome I realized I gave up. After I was out of school for around a month after my ACL surgery it was hard to catch up
She is now recovered and is serving in the military, but she has scars from her past that will last a lifetime. I am eighteen and a senior in high school, and I was forced to grow up before my time. During thirteen years of my life we spent very poor or in an unstable household with my mother’s boyfriend, I kept good grades, never got in trouble with the law or at school, and never did drugs, I had baby-sitting jobs and when I turned sixteen, I got a job and held that job for two years. In my life I want more. To succeed I must give up who I am now to be who I want to be.
A game without support is not a real game and is not as much fun as if there were supporter. Of course, fans are not everything, and an athlete should be able to play and fight hard even though there is not any support since it is their job to play for the college and in the best-case win. Every athlete receives a scholarship for playing for the school and for which all students are thankful. However, investing in facilities would bring more support to each game and therefore the atmosphere would increase. That is what athletes work for, a though game with people who support them no matter what and where they have to push through this situation to win this game.
“If you think you can, you can. If you think you can’t you’re right.” Ever since I was young, that remained one of my father’s favorite quotes to say, if it be a disagreement with a friend, or working on long division problem. While growing up, knowing that my siblings had not done quite well in school, and that was one of my biggest incentives to do well. I had grown up on one of the worst sides of town, living in an apartment complex with one of the worst reputations, living off the checks my father brought in from his back disability, and food stamps.
They could see how miserable I was and for being the kind of crazy parents they were, they heavily considered letting me. But I stuck it out for the rest of the season, sitting away from the girls on the benches and during breaks in-between games because I had officially given up. I didn’t have to convince my parents to not make me try out for the Dew the next season. They had seen that coming a mile away and my dad looked up different teams in the Northwest Indiana area without me having to say a word to him about it.
In the podcast “Lower Income, Higher Ed” NPR reporter Cuvvy Perpaterson ( I believe that’s what she said) discussed the issues high school students in D.C. face while applying and attending University. Perpaterson describes her interaction with one teenager; Christopher. He is a first-generation college student. “Christopher grew up in one of the poorest parts of Washington, D.C. He and his mother went through frequent bouts of homelessness when he went to high school — often staying in shelters.”
The similarities of these disasters were very similar with the cost and the damage it had done. Hurricane Katrina cost was $108 million dollars and the oil spill was $4 to $5 billion dollars. During these both disasters, many people died from the oil spill explosion and the huge hurricane. The hurricane destroyed 300,000 homes, people were out of power, and it took weeks for it to come back on. The oil spilled had damaged the short lines, the spill covered miles, and the hurricane flooded over cities.
“‘Your father’s right, she said. Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird”’ (Lee 119).
