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. But of course, she spoke like the Big Nurse. With the same unforgiving gaze and the same fanatical desire for control, she looked exactly like a twin-sister of Mildred Ratched from One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest. “No make-up test.” Her words sounded like a court
Consequently, I was submerged with nervousness and anxiety as I didn’t encounter such experience. Immediately, after I ended my speech my professor acknowledged of my fluency which boosted my self-esteem in public speaking. Suddenly, my midterm was approaching and even though I practised excessively for the midterm in front of my friends and family. However, I was tensed that I couldn’t do well in my speech. In addition, I let fear consume me and be victimized by it, I started stuttering and stammering with the words as I say “broom” instead of the word “groom” in my wedding customs speech.
By the way he lead his team into greatness, Coach Boone out did himself. I see a lot of Mrs. Balfour in Coach Boone. Mrs. Balfour cared for her students like Coach Boone did his team. At first, it is difficult to get team together that will work together efficiently as it is also hard for a teacher to get her students to listen at the start of the semester. Although both Boone and Balfour didn't give in nor did they change how to did things.
After the ceremony was over I had time to reflect upon the ceremony and the process leading up to it. I thought it was going to be this boring ceremony that I would not have enjoyed one single bit, but come to find out the ceremony was the most interesting Military ceremony I had ever been to. All the history behind it, and all the sequential events that took place during the ceremony really caught my eye and I was impressed. The personal aspect the ceremony had to Jason and his family really meant a lot to all of us. It is a memory I will never forget.
The members played a big part in this personal growth of mine, as well. I was shocked when random community members would come up to me to congratulate me on a win or ask how the teams are looking. It was important for me to be assured that they care about the things I was doing. These small conversations felt like an invitation for me to start and hold meaningful conversations with adults. Some of the greatest lessons that I have taken from high school are lessons that have nothing to do with the curriculum.
Growing up in a traditional Asian household where topics such as anxiety and depression are considered taboo, talking about my mental health with an actual Asian mother was alleviated the stress of my future. Her passing during my second year of college, though made me very sad, was a wake-up call to not to continue to be unhappy. I should not be living unsatisfied and unmotivated each day. After her funeral, I began to work harder in school and in life; I got my first job, I made several connections, and I got on the Dean’s List. Sometimes I think I’m working so hard for Ms. Tong but it is me working hard for myself, and that is the self-motivation that Ms. Tong has taught
Even since before I was born she prayed and prayed every night for a little brother even when both my parents and other sister didn’t. She rejoiced at the announcement of my birth while others were awestruck and bewildered by the news. She thought it necessary while also very misguided to teach me the meaning of tough love by not helping me whenever I asked for it because she understood the importance autonomy and independence. She wanted to instill in my brain that there will not always be someone out there to help me. She pushed me to understand the importance of learning how to grow when there was no one around to assist me.
I felt as if I needed to get a job so I could begin financially providing for them as well. While I had nearly perfected my time-management skills and became incredibly independent, I was often overwhelmed and felt guilty whenever I took time for myself. I nearly talked myself out of applying for college my senior year because I felt guilty about leaving my siblings behind and having them fill my role. However, a new social worker stepped into my life that encouraged me to pursue my personal goals and provided my siblings with mentors and resources that they can reach out to. Without such resources, I would have likely been stuck in the same position and unable to pursue a higher
The doctor said that my voice went out because I spend too much time practicing and eventually my throat got sore. The doctor also said that It's only going to take a few days. I was not ready for this because I had the most important audition of my life. The next day I went to school and told my friends about my situation. My friends included Lucas,Alex, and Maya.
As I began to prove myself within the division and making up for my mistake it was also met with jealousy from my peers. I was told by my peers that “only reason I was put in charge or got the added responsibility was because of Senior Chief”. It wasn’t always easy being put into leadership positions especially when I was still fairly new and had been in trouble no so long ago. I knew that as long as I stayed focused and did my job well in time I would earn the respect of my peers. My supervisors saw the hard work I would put in everyday, would not hear me complain of how bad the job was at times, and I was never late.
She immediately started crying and I looked up and did not see her number nor my number, but ultimately I knew my number was not supposed to be up there that year. In the moment everything seemed as if all my hard work had been suddenly take from me, but on the car ride back to my home I was so incredibly thankful and blessed that I was given such an amazing opportunity. I knew then that I had to audition again. The whole process of trying out for Rangerettes helped me grow in ways I never knew possible. I am much more humble and I appreciate everything that’s given to me and never do I take a moment for granted.

That person was Michael Bentkowski, the author of this very essay. I was an inexperienced individual who took for granted the luxury of attending school, or even coming home to a family that cared about my well being. Eventually through careful self-analysis, I began asking myself, “Do I really appreciate what I have?” This realization that I did not appreciate what I was given, became an even greater part of my life. Furthermore I concluded that an apology to Joseph would be necessary for all of the criticism I directed towards him. Joseph humbly accepted my apology, and soon after this event, we became the best of friends.
When researching, one gets so caught up in all the information that they want to share with others that it can get a bit overwhelming but I think I executed it successfully enough. Looking back on it, I do not think there are any drastic changed I would have done to my project, he incarceration rates are always changing after all. I am even proud that I was able to reconnect my project back to the book because almost everyone in the class failed to say where their research came from and I did that and
It was only after winning the knight’s tournament that I, Lady Caroline Beaureax, felt confident for the first time in my entire life. Time after time, I had been repressed in a bottle of obedience and weakness, but today that spring inside of me sprung to life. For all of my life, I was trained to do nothing more than manage a household and sit perfectly. Every day, my secret desire to learn combat kept growing, but in fear of society, I had never been able to overcome my fear of becoming a social outcast. Nevertheless, as I held my sword high, dripping with blood, I felt proud to have broken free of the chain that my people had bonded me in since birth.
