One Saturday morning, I woke up at seven in the morning to go to an amusement park called Six Flags. The plans had been made days ago, my two older sisters, my brother, a friend of ours and I would be going to Six Flags and spend the entire day there. As I got up after finally getting my alarm to finally shut up I walked over to the bathroom to take a shower when I realized that the ground was spinning, in my eyes at least, I had a vile taste in the back of my throat. I quickly fell back onto my bed feeling like if I hadn’t I would have fallen to the floor instead.
I think you should go to Scicon cause it 's fun and educational and is a one in a lifetime thing. If you don 't go to scicon you will miss out of a week of fun. Scicon is a save place to be and fun at the same time. You will go on hikes and learn things about nature. You also get to meet people and make good friends.
The NA meeting had a guest speaker named Adam, the most surprising thing about meeting were candor and humor evoked by the speaker. Adam acknowledged that he has been addicted to drugs for seventeen years, and this behavior started when he was in the 7th grade. Adam was genuinely outspoken and humorously shared being in and out of treatment facilities over 28 times costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. The group really identified with the speakers story, and this was exhibited by laughter and comments from the crowd.
Out of the three activities I participate in at Anson High School, the National Art Honor Society would be one that has impacted me the most. When I was first put into the art class my sophomore year, I tried my hardest to drop the course. The reason being is because I knew for a fact I would not be able to fully enjoy the course with my lack of artistic skills. After being in the class for a month and completing my first art assignment, I realized how much talent I actually do possess. A passion for art was quickly created over the course of time. At the end of the course, my art teacher handed me a letter that congratulated me on being accepted into the National Art Honor Society. I felt like I have accomplished something big after reading
“WOW!” was the only thing I could say. When we got there my mother kept stopping to take pictures. I was hurrying her up. I was impatient and wanted to get in already and see everything. After my mom stopped taking pictures I went on my first Universal Studios ride.
Good evening students, faculty, and family members! Thank you, Mrs. Reece and Principal King, for inviting me to this year’s National Junior Honor Society induction ceremony.
“So...what do you want to ride?”, Patrick asked with a grin. “Whatever you want to ride that’s reasonable.”, I replied swiftly. He looked around and was considering what I had said. “Maybe?...”, he was thinking aloud and then his voice trailed off and ended with a dissatisfied hum. He finally made a decision and we headed in that direction. The cool wind was blowing gently making my ponytail swirl around my head and get stuck to my pink grapefruit lip gloss.
During the course of English 102, I took this year of the spring semester. I have accomplished a variety of goals I once thought were impossible. I have not only grown as a writer and a student but as an individual as well. I feel that through my experience of this English course, I have achieved knowledge and self-confidence to step out into the real world. In putting together my portfolio, I could definitely see that I have made an incredible progress from the foundation of this class. My practice of grammar, words and the general structure of my papers has improved massively. Reflecting on my strengths and weaknesses as a writer, as well as things I have learned in my own writing process is a big accomplishment.
From the moment I stepped past through the set of large, orange colored, double doors into the exhibit hall floor I knew it was everything I had ever dreamed it would be. The first thing I laid my eyes on was a blue and white poster that stretched from end to end titled "Welcome Nerds! To PLANET COMIC-CON!" If you can imagine the smell in the air was a mix of excitement and the overwhelming passion for pop culture. Over the past few months, my friends and I recently made the bold decision to embark on an unforgettable adventure like never before. We set our eyes on the grand-prize for our senior year spring break trip we decided to go to Kansas City Comic-Con held in Missouri, Kansas prior to graduating high school. Comic-Con is a jam-packed three day weekend event filled to the brim
Last Summer I was awarded a scholarship by a program called Summer Search to help in rebuilding efforts in New Orleans with Rustic Pathways. This trip opened my eyes because I learned about new cultures and got a small insight of the world.Also, in my group, I met teenagers that were from Paris, Greece, Boston and from other places that I became very close to. Since Hurricane Katrina destroyed everything in its path, they are still trying to rebuild their homes. I got the opportunity to meet Mr.Felix one of Hurricane Katrina’s survivors and repair his home. I got to know first-hand how the hurricane changed New Orleans and how it has taken years to rebuild. In the end seeing Mr. Felix full of gratitude made me feel that all my hard work was
Gerard Way, a former member of My Chemical Romance, once said, “Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn't know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about.” My perfect day would be the day I get to go to my 5 Seconds of Summer concert. This paper will include the people that will be attending the concert, how I will be preparing for the concert, and the events that will occur at the concert.
In order to gain vital experience in the teaching field, I volunteered to work at West Rome Baptist Church’s Vacation Bible School. Although this setting was not in a school, the characteristics and guidelines were the same. Beginning at nine o’clock in the morning on June twenty-sixth, I, along with many adults and about a hundred children of all ages, gathered in the sanctuary of West Rome Baptist Church. The kids were assigned groups based on gender and grade level.
It was my first time ever visiting Disneyland. While we were waiting for the ferry my stomach felt like it was was upside down. I felt sick. I had never had a feeling like this. It was the most exciting moment of my entire life. It felt like the ferry was taking as taking hours I couldn’t wait any longer I was bouncing up and down trying to be as patient as I could. Eventually after what seemed like hours the ferry had finally come in there was a slight breeze that blew the ears about on my goofy hat. When the bridge was lowered and the captain gave us permission to board I ran on and went straight upstairs to the front of the boat, I could see it in the distance the Disney castle this got me even more excited which made me start to jump up and down and then my Mickey Mouse sunglasses fell off my face and in to the water my mum shouted at me as I just got the sunglasses but I didn’t let it affect my day as I knew it was going to be one of the greatest days of my life.
My writing process has changed tremendously over the course of this class. I feel more accomplished, confident and I feel sometimes that my ideas and thoughts just come in to my mind out of nowhere and I start writing about anything now. I pay attention to my punctuation and grammar more as I have polished them more now, not only when I write but then others write as well. I am constantly looking for errors and I highly think this is helping me a lot in my career. The comments from my instructor, the online material, my research, the online writing center and comments from other students in the discussion boards have helped me so much to improve my writing skills.
