Surviving Camp Cadet In my life I have gone to a State Police camp called Camp Cadet twice. The second time I went through a trial that made the whole experience much harder. This is my story of what I went through after the event that year. At 5:30 a.m. the sounds of Officer Lisa Gehr, and the other counselors, yelling, “Wake up girls” and the sudden brightness of the barracks’ lights turning on stirred me from my sleep. Time for another fun day at Camp Cadet, I think as I rub my tired eyes and push myself to a sitting position, being careful to not hit my head on the bottom bunk that I have called my bed for the past three nights.
Many parents would swear to the benefits of letting their children watch Sesame Street. Aside from making the usual boring stuff such as singing, dancing, counting and drawing all the more enjoyable, Sesame Street seemed to have left a mark on everyone’s childhood memory, imprinting a humongous influence of who we’re trying to be as we grow up. The fun-filled music and jingles, the colorful characters parading the screen and the wide variety of values that can be picked up; these are some of the many reasons why Sesame Street is one of the most revered children’s show all over the planet. Sesame Street taught us how to live merrily and how we should be treating other kids with a great heart and a solid set of values, and more so, we can never
I am not sure what obligated me to choose the topic that I did, but I decided to write about Spongebob SquarePants. I wrote in “second grade” detail the plot for my favorite episode, which just so happens to be the Christmas episode. I can remember reading it in front of the class, I thought it was the greatest thing in the world. People were listening to me read my own writing, and what surprises me to this day is that I was proud of what I wrote! Looking back on it now as a high school senior, I'm almost embarrassed to say that was my first piece of writing, but everyone has to start somewhere.
The year and a half I spent after high school wondering what I should do with my life was a pretty low point in my life. I was confused and most of the time thought poorly of myself. College has helped re-invigorate me and helped me see my self-worth again. Going to class and seeing myself succeed made me feel better than I had in quite a while. Then finding a career that I am excited about has helped me be eager for what the future holds.

It's an absolute pleasure to know that the people I helped were able to inspire me. I can't wait until I'm able to get that feeling of inspiration next year. For awhile I felt that I would never make it through high school because I could not get over the fear of talking in front of people. The 8th graders were more outgoing than I was when I first joined. They had no trouble coming up to me and asking for my name.

I am from the nights curled up on the couch watching shows that we get way to invested in. From the fluffy brown hair of my brother that could be mistaken for a skyscraper or my loving mother that undoubtedly cares about me. From the days we’re my filthy dogs come inside and make us filthy too. I am from the memorable, lively days that I wish never ended or the days that we can’t stop laughing and we don’t even know why. I am from the grassy fields, of which I play my most memorable games.
For some children this may alter their happiness and cause them to have a personality shift to something that isn’t like them.

She worked extremely hard to land many roles, and went lengths to fix her reputation when it was altered by the press. Once Nancy met the love of her life Ronald, she assumed the role of the primary caregiver.
”It was very shocking, but it gradually became more comfortable.” “I’m pretty comfortable,” said Ellison Girod, another student optimistically beginning her first year at Conifer. ”I know a few teachers already and I really like it here, so it’s a lot easier. It seems a lot better than middle school and I feel like [the school year] is going to go well.” Skirting the Commons are teachers, waiting excitedly with large, welcoming smiles as they watch their new pupils fill the commons. Just like the Freshman, many of these teachers are nervous to start their first year at Conifer High School; to teach their new students; to make an impression. “This will be my first year with Conifer; my second year teaching,” said John Shipley, the newest member to Conifer High’s athletics department.
“YOU HAVEN’T WHAT?” They heard Bitty screech from the kitchen. As the short, yet properly terrifying, southern boy stomped into the living room, Jack shrugged, “I haven’t seen High School Musical. What’s the big deal?” Shitty almost literally flung himself down the stairs, “What’s the big deal? !” He shouted, “High School Musical is a vital movie that every child should experience!” Bitty, face stone cold, said, “Yes. And we are watching it right now.” Jack frowned, “Do I have to?” The two yelled, “YES.” Bitty takes charge in dragging Jack to the couch, and even though Jack wasn’t fighting, Bitty more or less sat on him while staring angrily.
I got an A on the report – the only A I ever received in her class, with the exception for a report on the country of Italy After the year was over I never saw Ms. Nail again. I started 8th grade, entered high school the following year and moved on through college, really not thinking of her much. One night a few weeks ago I was watching an old rerun of “The Twilight Zone.” “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” was showing again. 50 years later it still has an effect on me, the ending is quite violent and sudden. Perhaps some of the feelings that come up watching this movie then and now, at least for me, symbolized a changing from innocence to hard reality of adulthood-who knows.
