Have you ever realized that as you get older you slowly have less and less time to do anything fun or spontaneous? For me, I may not be considered old, but lately it seems to be getting harder to do anything such as hanging out with friends, hanging out with my girlfriend, and even just watching television. As I get older it is becoming increasingly difficult to stay young. All of my time has been taken with the pressures of school, so that I can build a career, and working 2 jobs. I’ve been working at McDonalds for about 3 years and The Home Depot for almost a year now.
It is strange to think how much TV shows can have an effect on children. When I was younger, a TV show that I enjoyed was called Naruto. One of the characters that I was most fond of was Rock Lee. When he was first introduced, the director clearly tried to make him the bizarre kid on the show. He had a black bowl cut, bushy eyebrows, a green jumpsuit, and wore ankle weights.
1.a There are many ways which my childhood was different when compared to a Yucatec Maya childhood. In the first example, the children enjoyed working around the house and would ask for more responsibilities to show their competence in doing work. Growing up, I would do all that I could so I wouldn’t have to do chores and I would never have asked for more work. I would do the least amount of chores that I could while staying out of trouble while the Yucatec children would do as much housework as their parents let them. Even when I did do chores, I didn’t want to and didn’t enjoy doing them.
Now, that I have the experience of learning from a 7th grade ELA class, I have some expectations for 8th grade ELA class this year. My expectations for 8th grade ELA class is that the info taught to us will be understandable and clear and that we could improve on our grammar, punctuation, etc., so we can be ready for high school. For example, explaining it thoroughly, giving us outlines, or asking students if they don’t understand. For my expectations to happen, the teacher must be patient and generous, so the kids would understand that they’re not getting pressured and have a better quality work instead of messy work. Also, the teacher must be open and appear helpful to the students, so students could ask for help if they don’t understand
Like most people I too have faced many barriers in education making it hard to grow and learn both in class and in life. Most things you learn are at an early age from your parents and throughout life in school. Many of the information we learn as people come from learning them ourselves. We also change and grow from things we have been through. A lot of times we adapt to our surroundings whether it be a place or the people we’re around learning new things.
4:30 is when cram time starts. I’m in the barn and it smells like shampoo, showsheen and sheep. Colors of show coats line the aisles, while last minute feed is given to them. The sound of sheep bleats, blowers and sheers are deafening, but the adrenaline rushing through you muffles the sounds of it all. Hope rushes through your veins as butterflies ties a knot in your stomach as you know the showmanship will feel like you are out there for hours.
My educational goals are to achieve my Associates of Arts degree. During this process I hope to find my drive and passion and continue my education in order to reach this goal of a career that I love. Without achieving my Associates of Arts degree and providing me time to figure out what career field interest me the most I would be jumping into an unknown field in hopes that I like
I am growing. So here comes September, drowning in leaves the color of burnt umber, the promise of education and decay growing soggy underfoot. Here is the pregnant pause, the tumultuous cliff over which must be crossed. In the autumn, it’s impossible to gaze upon the outcome--a small pair of nervous, shaking hands inside of a shroud of darkness the color of pale gold cast upon thin shoulders.
“I don’t want to go there!” I yelled. “You should go! With me!” My dad said, “And no more rejection!”
