I never wanted to or even thought about Color Guard until the summer when my parents made me come to band camp; even then I didn’t want to do it. At that time, I would have rather been a dancer than a Color Guard member. Color Guard was actually my last choice. (Even though I really had no choice.) As a result of , That I tried out for the team and made it, I ended up learning that Color Guard wasn’t the easiest and it can be a little tricky to get a hang of , but once you got it ,you know it for good, it’s sort of like learning how to ride a bike).
I started this journey about a month before coming to college. The main reason that I was attracted to it was because my anxiety. I have been dealing with anxiety for quite some time but within the last year it has gotten worse. The simplest things would trigger it, like trying to find something to wear. I had a ton of clothes but felt like I had nothing to wear.
This week of events entailed planning and organizing, booking venues, and calling business to make the week a success. Luckily, I was not given this task to do myself working along slide my other senior class officers I learned the importance of collaboration for a common goal. Moreover, in planning this event I noticed I was introduced with many difficulties. The biggest challenge was taking an event like this which came annually but making it special and unique to our own class. For example, every year we hold the Senior Sunset event and each year they held it on auditorium
I agree that I want to make a change; all I have ever wanted to do was make a change. I may not be the most decisive when choosing a degree, but my basis will stay the same, to make some sort of change big or small. College is a way for me to try things out and to find what I am talented at and enjoy. Applying to a university like SPU is a risk. I have never lived or been away from Hawaii for more than two weeks.
Growing up near a college town, my parents hoped that moving away would not be necessary. However, for my desired major, moving away was the only option. Throughout my college search, my personal choices were leading me out of state. While moving away was going to be hard for my parents, moving across the country would be even harder.
At the end of my trip it was the last day. I was sad because i has to go home soon. On the there we got to go to a cove at the Lake of the
High school is a time for big decisions. It is a time to find out who you are and who you will become. In these 4 years everyone was trying to have a voice in my life. My parents wanted me to be successful and a good person, my teachers wanted me to get good grades and enjoy their classes, my friends wanted me to try things with them and have fun, and my pastor wanted me to be a person that shared Gods love. So many different people wanting so many different things
Why I chose an apprenticeship over university... Like most college students I had no idea what I wanted to do after I had finished Studying for my A-levels. It seemed like my only option was to go to university, this certainly seemed to be the norm with my peers. So I applied for English Literature and Law Programmes and successfully got conditional offers for both. I then started an LLB Law course at the University of Sunderland in September.
There was nothing holding me down to California, other than the dislike of moving away from it. It’s not like I had many friends there. The one’s I did have were not the kind which I would try to keep any relationship with after moving away.
At Last, I’m A Senior Senior year has by far been the craziest, scariest, and most important year of my life. Many people imagine senior year to be laid back and care free; so far, it has been everything but that. Senior year consists of trial and error and is full of surprises (a great deal of surprises). It is full of late nights and taking chances. Can that homework assignment wait until tomorrow?
Last summer, my family decided to move to Oregon from a small town in Maine. Throughout high school, I was motivated to try new things. Nevertheless, moving across the country to a school where I knew no one would be the biggest change I ever endured. I was terrified of the unknown. It felt like I was going to a party I wasn’t invited to.
To avoid the constant arguments and agonizing questions, I chose to dorm here at College of Staten Island. It seemed ideal since I have classes here anyways, I’d avoid taking transportation, and I wouldn’t have to choose just yet who I wanted to live with. The day finally came in August, when I had to move into the dorms. It became another huge transition from living with parents to living alone with random
Freshman year came along and I wanted to attend Sullivan High School. I wanted to come back to my hometown, I was just missing the people I started it all out with in the beginning. My dad and I had all of the paperwork finished already to go for me to attend Sullivan High School in August, but my mom refused and wouldn’t budge to let me go. She didn’t want me going to Sullivan, she wanted me to stay with all of my new friends I had made at Owensville. She thought my best bet would be to stay and proceed to go to OHS.
I would never have guessed that I would very much enjoy the experience, or that I would ever want to do it again, so I was uncertain about how I wanted to do the trip, until I realized that most of the good I get out of backpacking comes from the views and the people I’m with, rather than the hiking. I realized that I could hike to a camping spot, set up camp, and just hang out around there for a couple days. I thought about
I really didn’t think about going to college until I was in my senior year. And when I made of up my mind that I wanted to go to college, I had to figure out how I was going to get there. Of course my first step was to ask my parents if I could go. I am not sure why I had to ask them about school, because throughout my school years they were not concerned about my status nor did they expect me to finish high school.
