Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. Former Apple CEO and Computer Pioneer Steve Jobs’s “You’ve Got To Find What You Love” stated these words as an ending thought for Stanford University’s class of 2005 at their commencement speech in said the year. His primary goal was to inspire students with various lessons he learned throughout his life so that they may graduate just a little more enlightened as they were before. Jobs does this through the use of anecdotes that portray the literary techniques of logos, counterargument, and allegory to tell the students to not let limitations get the best of you, get back up
Gabriella Montez’s primary stereotype is the “nerd.” The first time Gabriella is seen, she is reading a book. This is a common indication used throughout the film industry that leads viewers to make the assumption that the character in question is introverted and intelligent. When Gabriella transfers to a new school, it is made clear that she is in fact academically talented. She is referred to as a “freaky genius girl” and “an Einsteinette.”
Candide’s misfortune starts when the bulgur army had attacked the castle. Hence he was going to encounter the whole world and start to make his own fortune. His beloved Cunegonde as well suffered a lot either from violence guided to her or her suffers from misfortune. Every step he took he discovered a horrible problem that affect his outlook for the world. So Candide and Cunegonde blamed Pangloss a lot for his meaningless philosophy about the optimism.
Imagine moving from a small catholic school to a bigger public high school. I got to experience this my 8th grade year through my freshmen year. Each year at Hermann High School I have gotten to experience something new each year. Going from St.George to Hermann High School has had a huge impact because it has shaped me to be the person I am today. Hermann High School has helped me be more social, come out of my shell, be a leader, manage my time better, and to have more self confidence.
Why can't you keep your big/ mouth shut?" (18-20). Society plays such a vital influence on the individuals that inhabit it that if it begins to feel negatively towards one group, those surrounded in it began to feed off of what is given. In this case, numerous people began to segregate the Japanese Americans as segregation grew, especially with the laws and executive orders being issued
(pg. 35, line 9) He was so confused he was asking for forgiveness so he didn’t feel alone, so he felt loved. Everyone pushed him away, he created fear to the people because of his complexion and size. He didn’t have any feeling but anger and hopelessness so he made everyone else around him feel his pain. “I’ll find you.
“I decided to send you both as our school representatives for a leadership camp in Johor next two weeks.” A teacher of mine informed me and my best friend during our recess time. We were so excited that we planned everything right after that. Indeed, we had so much fun during the camp. Well, as teenagers, which part of going to somewhere or doing something with our best friends is not interesting?
Hate is everywhere! Everywhere you turn there will always be people who hate you, your ideas, or everything. As a High School student, hate surrounds me in digital forms and physical forms. I see bullies in real life and homophobic people on my Twitter Timeline. They both share one thing in common: the first amendment.
I yelled, “I’M COMING MOM AND DAD”. That was the stupidest thing I have ever done and I am going to regret it for the rest of my life. By yelling, I gave away my position to the countless prisoners lurking the area. Also every single prisoner there hated my parents because they were their guards. Once I saw the first inmate I knew I was in
The often racist and offensive propaganda found on war bond posters, and other merchandise led to a huge increase in racist thoughts and urges. This is shown when Frank Keegan, a hearty, full-of-himself, true American says “We were dreadfully frightened of the Japanese. For years we were told of the yellow hordes. We had the Oriental Exclusion Act. Even before Pearl Harbor we were scared of them”(36).
seeing their excitement, I took out my binder that held lots of drawings of all of the characters, and gave it to them. They immediately started bashing me for how I drew them, saying the head was to big, the eyes were to large, the hands were hidden or the hands were drawn terribly, the hair was terrible, and it didn’t even look like any of the characters. Emily soon came back from the bathroom in the middle of them saying my art style was trash, and even agreed to most of what they said. I started to get fed up of what they were saying, and decided to just say then and there, I didn 't want to ever hear from Emily again, because she always went overboard with everything, and only cared for herself. I blocked her from all of my social media accounts, and I blocked her number from my phone.
For my History Day project, I chose the topic of Japanese (Nikei) in the Pacific Northwest. The topic was on Washington State’s History Day site and it piqued my interest. I’m very interested in Japanese culture and am planning on taking Japanese in high school. I’m hoping to be able to be a part of the exchange student program and go to Japan for 2 weeks or a school year. I believe it would be an interesting experience as Japanese culture is so different from American culture.
I really like that my school rewarded us for doing well in our classes, but they did it at the end of the year for a grand finally of the school year. I believe at the end of that year was when I started being a good student. I found out how important it was to get good grades. As soon as everybody was on the bus we started our trip to Six
I would cry over the stupidest little things. I would also run around chasing and trying to play with others. People found me scary because of this, which has turned me into the creep I am today. I didn 't have many friends because everyone was afraid of me. The friends I did have were either too mature for me at the time or their friends didn 't like me.
