Laconia Middle School was the local school for those that lived in Laconia. Knowing most of my classmates and having many friends I felt as though I was at a very good place in life. Attending school everyday was fun for me. I got to be in classes with my best friends, had some of my favorite teachers, worked out a wonderful schedule and played the sports I loved, but if anything middle school was especially important to me was when I began to pick up a fascination for history and also began to realize how the Bosnian War had affected me as a person. Seventh grade was the year I was asked to write an essay about my biggest fear.
Existentialism in the Real World As my high school saga comes to a satisfactory conclusion, I am left feeling very accomplished, educated, and rounded as an individual. And as I prepare for life beyond high school, I do feel a little worried. How could it get better than this? The great friends, the great moments, all the school activities and events. There’s no way things could get better right?
Whenever I was in the eighth grade I was put into a few classes with a teacher I knew that I was not going to like. The first day of school I walked the dreadful walk to her classroom after science class and knew that Mrs. Jackson was going to be horrible. I was never really the student who had to study throughout middle school, so whenever I was put into Honors English, I just knew that I had set myself up for failure. Mrs. Jackson was one of those teachers who loved her job, you could see it in the way she smiled, she loved the way that a book could change someones
To the Younger Generation, oh how I wish there was an easy way to get through this thing they call high school. To be honest, I would search for that every day of my life as I go through high school and I can say that there is no easy way. High school is a necessary evil that is different for every single person that attends. It is fun and then it is not want you would like at all. As you venture through it you will soon realize these things and this is my way of telling you how to best go through it with the most ease.
The pain and agony due to the fact that I might not be prepared for college class was on my shoulders. Since day one of highschool, my biggest desire throughout school was to be engaged in learning while being well prepared for the next step in life: college. What class was the answer to this class desired? It was in a meeting with my guidance counselor in eighth grade that struck me and sparked the interest in my heart to do well. All of my highschool career I have never known what it actually meant to do well and be ¨successful.¨ The abstract idea occurred to me, in room 201, in the front row of Dual Enrollment English 111; this idea regarded what it means to be successful and obtain a good work ethic while producing a high quality essay.
After school administrators dress coded her for having a skirt four inches above the knee as opposed to three inches, Washington Post reporter, Gail Sullivan, described when a new student, Miranda Larkin, was subjected to wear red sweatpants and a humongous, bright yellow T-shirt. Even Oakleaf High School’s intention of this outfit was to shame the wearer. Why not just slap a scarlet A on the student and mortify them further? In many events, like the ones shown above, schools have come up with severe and strange sentences for breaking the rules, that when encountered may never leave the student’s
As a student in high school, life was dramatic and challenging. I was not ready to face huge changes during my freshmen year, and I often thought life was as easy as breezing through a straight tunnel. Then, I started seeing many gifted and talented students struggle and fall behind in high school, and I feared that I would be the next victim in line. Gradually, I learned step by step to grow and adjust to the changing environment, like a metamorphosis from a caterpillar to a butterfly. I became more determined to earn success in academics and athletics; most importantly, I found out who I am: a small girl with a big heart to change the world.
I realized I wasn’t a good student my behavior inside the classroom was horrible but I could recognize I had a really good connection with my teachers even though I was super noisy in class and always laughing basically I was like a clown, until today I still talk to them as my second parents. Memorable moments in my life that I consider the scariest days and at the same time moments to celebrate was my last year in High School. De La Salle Panama is known for a lot of people as a really hard school to graduate and the hardest year is grade 12 (2014: my last year in High School). Remember moments when I was studying and I took me the whole night to study for my several
August 29, 2006 will always stick out in my life. For the first time I had to deal with something that had plagued me my whole life, anxiety. Day after day walking into school I would be crying with my mom in the school office worried about everything. I would get nervous and anxious about tests, friends, and teachers everything played a role. It wasn 't until a year later that I would be diagnosed with general anxiety disorder.
My biggest fear of all though, are the popular girls at school. There perfectly painted faces make me so mad, and there skinny jeans don’t hold a match to my leggings. But, overall, it’s what they say. Last year, on my walk home, I had a very bad experience that made me hate them even more. The fear and humiliation they put me through was so unexpected, so awful and cruel.
He felt that it was an escape from the academic stresses. Ever since freshman year he had pushed himself toward a leading role, from being one of the Von Trap children in the Sound of Music to Nathan Detroit in Guys and Dolls. He like Michelle felt, “the real sense of challenge…Each play offered a different “hurdle” to be overcome and new lessons to be learned,” when they were involved with things they enjoyed (Pope, 109). Isaiah had told me during his breaking point senior year how stressed he was. He said, “I love performing because you’re taught how to act and what to say when and there isn’t any pressure for failure because you can always improve, but away from the stage I only know how to take tests and answer questions.” It hurt so much to realize my friend who was so talented, couldn’t realize how talented he was away from the stage.
Breaking Night In the beginning of the book, Liz explains how her family life is and also how her father first met her. It happened to be behind the glass in prison. Her parents got themselves in a very bad situation. Her mother was on a bad habit of cocaine; her father was selling and using many other drugs at the same time. The mother started when she was young, “smoking grass and sniffing glue”, but as the years went on and she passed through different friends and groups, it lead to worse habits and it didn’t stop.
Additionally, to prove the theme of that you can never take your mistakes back no matter how hard you try, the story, Betty Ann states, “Once, years later when I was home from college, I saw Betty Ann in the doctor’s office. She didn’t even recognize me. Sticks and stones only break bones. Words can shatter the soul. A little, quiet, picked-on-10-year-old runs away because kids on the bus laugh at him.
We got by day by day though by appeasing to their wants for the time being. They grew tired after a while since I put off giving them answer on who I was to marry. This made them start to plan behind my back on ways to get rid of my son which would force me to make a decision. Their planning forced me to make drastic measures and send my son away until it was safe for him. It sickened me to know that not even my own family was safe in my house with these suitors around to threaten them.
No one can honestly say that they enjoyed middle school. I know that I can’t. Unfortunately, as young teenagers, we are impressionable, and whatever habits and traits that we pick up in middle school can alter the course of our lives. Look at me, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis the summer before eighth grade and now my life has been changed forever. If I’m being completely honest, middle school helped me become the person I am today.
