A cure did not happen.
Gloria stated, “I was in a time when things were segregated.” No lunches were provided, her parents had to bring her lunch. She was pretty active in sports, went to Hahnville high school 8 miles from where she lived, the buses were also segregated but new schools were built for George Washington, she didn’t go to school with white kids. Graduated from high school in 1955. After that she couldn’t get any jobs, so her mom paid to get public bus transportation, it was a private bus, but that was segregated too, Gloria went to New Orleans to get typing classes. She had nine siblings, parents only had elementary education, and her mom did a lot of sowing for white people and did all our clothes.
Going into college, athletics were always first priority to me; but after being a regular starter on my soccer team entering my junior year, my priorities were completely reversed. My first two years of college saw me as one of four players (out of a class of 22 players) to be on the varsity soccer team, meaning that I was exposed to long bus rides, missing classes for team events, and constantly being a lesson behind other students in my class. I had trouble balancing soccer, work, and school during that time, as I was only able to maintain a 3.1 GPA. I decided that putting all my effort in soccer was not the correct route to take, as school was going to lead me further in life. For the next two seasons, I was on a
As I was playing with my legos my knee went over a nail in the floor that would not go down there was blood everywhere. We had two cars but hit a deer with one so now we only one car and my dad has it at work with him. My mom called my dad and said Hunter cut his knee on that nail and needs stitches. My mom worked in the OR at the time and my dad worked about 40 minutes away from the house. While waiting for my dad to get home my mom put a washcloth on my knee to to stop the bleeding.
Apparently my grandma doesn 't keep in contact but knows her address. The moment I hear address, I know she 's alright, that she 's clean and is better. Right when I get off on the phone, I tell Lucy the address. I can’t speak, I tried but my throat felt so dry. Ten minutes later we go turn into a decent neighborhood and Lucy parks right next to a baby blue house.
This all changed as soon as I began high school tennis though. When the fall of 2014 came around and I was insanely nervous about my first year of high school, who wouldn’t be though? Tennis helped me transition from having only two grades in one school to having four. The team dynamic helped me become accustomed to being the new freshman on the block. Tennis also helped me form new friendships, and learn to break out of my shyness when it came to new people.
Since it was Andi’s last year of high school, she was preparing for a scholarship. It has been her dream since her first year to get a full scholarship and just thinking about that made me mad. I had spent the last few weeks thinking of ways to ruin Andi’s big day. I had originally planned to mess with the images and cue cards of her project, but after running the scenario through my head, I decided she’d notice too easily. However, if she had no project at all to present, the judges would
I’m going to get a lot done and take my time doing so because it’s going to be good for me in the long run. It’s going to give me all the knowledge I need to move on to college there’s always more information I’m going to need but this is a good step in the right direction. The first step is I’m going to be on time and never miss a class. Next I want to finish more work that is handed to me and expect to do, rather than just doing to bare minimum. Last I’m going to study hard for every test I know I’m going to have to take.

It was crazy for me to think that I just started my sophomore year and I applied to a different school for my junior year. The spring of my sophomore year I received an email from Penta Career Center saying I was accepted into Construction Electricity Program. I was so excited and nervous at the same time. When my junior year started everything was new to me; the school, people, and Electricity. The school is huge so I was overwhelmed.
