So the social norm that I broke I thought it was kind of funny. what I did was that I would walk around and taking people’s carts. I would grab the cart and say “well this is everything I need.”I went to Target instead of Walmart because I go there a lot so I don’t want to go back to target ever again anyways. Taking mine at I look like crap because I’m sick. So I thought of that should be up anyways. Some reactions I did not expect like them laughing at me. They would get really mad that I take there cart. One of the dudes got really mad and cuss me out. After that point I decided to leave the store because I don’t want to get kicked out.
I hug her knowing that this will be our last. Tears are streaming uncontrollably down my cheeks, staining her shirt. I'm not ready to say goodbye. I don't understand why this is happening. Out all of the 7.28 billion people in the world, why did it have to be her?
I stared into the dark sky, taking a deep breath. “Tonight...tonight.” I breathed out loud. This past week i’ve felt jittery inside my stomach, holding back the smile i’ve wanted to show. Tomorrow was the day it all happened. I held my legs to my chest and thought about all the good things that could happen.
It happened on June 11, 2015. My lacrosse team won our regional quarter final game the previous day—I scored my personal best of five goals and was named Player of the Game. As a reward for the win, my coach gave us a three hour practice the next day that was strictly conditioning—leaving the seniors 30 minutes to go home, shower, change, and drive to our Senior Dinner at Bowdoin College. I raced home from practice, my sweat sticking to the car leather seats, music blasting, and the wind in my hair. I had the future on my mind: playoffs, graduation, summer, and college. I took an ice cold shower and threw on a dress, making my way to Bowdoin 15 minutes late (and still sweating). I went through the motions of the Senior Dinner that night: I
This psychological assignment requires us to break a social norm. In my case, I decided to break an appearance social norm. I thought in something weird, but at the same time really funny. Therefore, I entered to my little walking closet and I took the most brilliant and extravagant high heels shoes that I found to wear them at a place when people usually used flip flops.
Lani: I was helping for someone’s project for COMM 245; I was in the video lab, in the studio. I was on campus and decided to contact everyone I knew who comes to the school. I remember I sent out a snap saying guys I think there is a shooting, be careful and then I started sending out individual texts to people making sure they were okay, like hey are you good? Stay out of an area. I didn’t know how many people were getting shot. I just knew it’s not good and that we have to be careful. At first, the campus was like we are unsure, just be careful, and then it took some time till I finally got an email that said stay on campus and were held there for about two hours, I just kept recording.
Bam, the runner hit the ball. She dropped the bat and ran to first base. Safe, she kept on running to second. As I watched her run I realize she wasn’t stopping at second, or third. Rounding third base, she sprinted to home plate. But just as she had rounded the base, the ball came sailing in to me. I caught the ball and stood my ground in front of home plate, blocking her path. She charged forward, and slid through the dirt, trying to avoid the tag, but I still got her.
Boom,the ball went flying. All my life I have loved and will always love baseball.I started playing when I was two years old. Ever since I 've been playing I have always wanted to do two things, hit a grandslam and rop a home run hit. “Today is the day,” is what I keep saying to myself. Today I will do the two things I wanted to do my whole entire life.
I was in the game and I pushed thoughts of a potential lose out of my head. The game was neck and neck. Butterflies formed in my stomach as I was passed the ball. Time seemed to slow down as I faked to the right and drove around the defender. The soles of my feet were aching, my ankle brace was burning the bottom of my foot. The mammoth of a girl chased after me with loud thuds of footsteps and swiped a single meaty paw at me. I got fouled and was sent to the free throw line. Bounce. I took a
Have you ever wondered what makes you different from the other seven billion people on this earth? I am unique in many ways from talents to challenges and lifelong goals, and all of these will shape me into the person I will become. I have had a lifelong goal of becoming a professional golfer and I am reassured this is what I want to spend my life attempting to achieve.
In my lifetime, I haven’t had the best of luck when it comes to injuries. For example I’ve been burnt a few times, had many cuts and bruises, even had my head split open but one injury that always sticks in my mind is when I almost broke my jaw.
Everything was glittering. The sun was just setting and there were varieties of pinks, oranges, yellows, and reds that all faded down to where the sun was hiding behind the Empire State Building. Bright lights from Jumbo Screen ads, and lights from windows shined all around the city, they all danced above. Even though it was late at night,there were even more people walking the streets then there was when I looked out this morning.
wake up. I had been eating dinner with my family when I heard my favorite show's
It was a chilly day when it started. Leaves had just begin to fall ever so gracefully. Joey was just getting the hang of high school. He had known Jessica for a while. Maybe even for 5 years. Joey had started talking to Jessica every day. Texting her. Making her laugh. He had never thought of her like that. No. They are just friends and that’s how Joey likes it. He started to feel butterflies in his stomach. They were currently in lunch with one more class left. The room had an essence of chicken and it was surprisingly quiet. Joey and his friends were enjoying themselves eating lunch and laughing about immature things when Jessica put her hand around Joey. Joey just looked over and smiled but inside he was screaming. Did she actually like
When I was little, I imagined myself as a normal human being, just like the others. Everything I remember about my past is black and white. There was a deep fog covering me from others. As I advanced in my education, things became clearer as if I just got a new pair of glasses. What I saw through these specs were a nightmare. I'm sitting on my bed, next to the window with pure light piercing through. I looked out the window, see the fragile wind scraping the trees and a valley behind it. What stood out more than the beautiful trees was my ugly self. The one who ruined me.
