In addition, when Mr. Antolini who was his English teacher teaches Holden the importance of getting academic experience by going to the school, Holden did not pay so much attention to what Mr. Antolini says. But, after he goes back to home, he decides to go a school again. It means that his thought is changed through his process of constructing identity, and probably his idea towards identity is changed, too. There is one more evidence that shows his way of thinking becomes different from before. In the last chapter, he says, "I sort of miss everybody I told about" (214).
Ultimately, James Dashner teaches us that You have to show courage and determination to succeed in life even when things are hard to do. You have to show courage and determination to succeed in life even when things are hard to do. In the beginning, They entering the Scorch and the city. He became a better person when entering the Scorch and He learned his place they were in. “Thomas had a sickening thought as he pushed his way down the stairs after
Another factor is when the text mentions, “This fight takes courage. We may be beaten, spit on, or sent to jail. But we will show Governor George Wallace that we mean business!” Using courage is allowing the marchers to do more than giving in and giving the world what they expect, violence. They can overcome their difficulties with their courage and can show the world what they are capable of. They are still not the only revolutionaries to use Martin Luther King’s passion as their
Colonel White stood in the front of the room and bellowed, “ And your company commander….. Vaden.” JROTC has changed my life. The moment I started ROTC, I felt as if it would be the worst four years of my life. I couldn’t believe my mom was making me do this, and she wasn’t taking no for an answer. I had always had this idea that ROTC was like a class for children in high school who was just too lazy to run a lap on the track. Maybe their parents forced them, but I just felt like it wasn’t for me.
At that time my math teacher was Mr. Hack, and he was very straight forward in his teaching, but I was stupid, and I neglected and missed the fundamentals of basic algebra. This affected me the whole year and because I have a lazy personality, I didn't put the effort in understanding and understand what I have neglected. Due to this, I did so atrocious that I had to retake an algebra course over the summer. I decided I must step up my game because it’s not worth it to me and I had to prove myself that I can do this. Thankfully after all my hard work and devotion I finished the summer course with a percentage of
W. about a make-up test. “What was your excuse for missing yesterday’s test?” she asked me sarcastically. “My father had a surgery,” I replied. “It was very convenient to use your father’s surgery as an excuse to miss the test,” Dr. W. resumed. I made a desperate attempt to explain away: “I really could not think about anything else but my father.” “Nothing personal, sweetheart, but if you wanted to get a good grade in my class, the only thing you should have cared about yesterday was the test.” I listened to her dazedly and tried to remember who she reminded me of.
I then somehow gather the power and decided to struggle for my livelihood and my mother. I left my studies because I had no money to continue them and I don’t want my mother to handle more burden. I started a job and along some teaching classes to small kids. After a hard period of one year, I was able enough to continue my studies and now my only mission is to become someone on whom my father get proud of and then I will ask him why he did all of this to us . This is the reason I don’t make friends nor talk useless to someone.
My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
He would sometimes wait for me to get done with school to pick on me. He used to call me mean names when we walked passed each other as he shoved me like it was on accident, even though I knew he did it on purpose and that he intended to hurt my feeling. One day he would say he was my friend if I gave him an answer or two but the next he would act like nothing even happened the day before. He treated me like I was trash left to be feeling like I was the only person in this world that had a “Friend” like that. I didn’t tell anyone for a while.
For example, is I had to take an exam and I was being to lazy to study for it and just said who cares I’m going to cheat and not study. I would get a feeling in my gut telling me that something doesn’t feel right and that I should study to actually learn the criteria of the class instead of waiting the time I spent in the class listening to the lecture to end up not studying and cheat on the exam. Or if I really wanted a new pair of Jordan’s and didn’t have the money for them at the time in my head I would be like “why don’t I just steal these, and no one would know” but then I would get a feeling that this is wrong and that there could be serious consequences if I commit this crime just for a pair of
While attending classes for education when I was younger, I came to the realization that I did not want to become a teacher. Since I was working many hours and trying to get ahead financially, I decided to drop out of school. In hindsight, a better choice would have been to switch to a Liberal Arts degree. I have explained to my son that if I had completed any degree when I was younger, it would only be necessary for me to attend a few classes in order to receive a certificate instead of starting over from the beginning. He has witnessed the difficulties that I face trying to juggle an already hectic schedule with completing my schoolwork.
It was my last year and all I wanted to do was have fun. I stopped doing my homework and studying for all my tests, I began to worry about boys and all the fun times my friends and I would have. I got suspended and asked to get sent to a anger management school to help me focus a bit more on myself, nobody would have expected that from
If Amir did end up helping Hassan, then he would have been thanked by everyone, but instead Amir is faced with the sight of that scene forever. Amir’s passion was to be loved and applauded by Baba, but his moral obligation was to help his best friend. Turning away from his best friend just exemplified how he was scared and intimidated and that is the worst way to act going through life. The main lesson to take out of Hosseini’s quote is to make the decision that will be the most beneficial to the future because just by one wrong decision, life can go a whole different
The school board tried to talk the incident out of what really happened, so that they can win the school budget election, but it failed. Both Philip and Miss Narwin faces major issues, Miss Narwin was asked to take a leave of absences even when a lot of people are giving her hate mails and Philip becomes stressed with his peers disapproving him. In the end, Miss Narwin resigns teaching and Philip switches to a new school where singing the anthem was allowed and in his response he said he didn’t know the
