Im glad I got a second chanse to be smart becaus I lerned a lot of things that I never even new were in this world and Im grateful that I saw it all for a littel bit” (Keyes, 305).

He is telling Miss Kinnian that everything is good, but when you really analyze the text, Charlie is only doing that so she will feel better.

On one beautiful spring day, I decided to go and try it out on my own for once. All that I had was my dad's old tackle box with a bunch of rotten and rusted old lures and plastics inside of it.

Prom, donkey basketball, and being one of the older kids were only a few of the ways that made junior year the best. Having the opportunity to experience these milestones with my friends kept the year filled with never ending laughter and joy.
The second game of the season, Barton College in North Carolina came down to look at the Byrnes Lady Rebels Varsity lacrosse team. I was the only one out of seniors, juniors, and sophomores that they wanted. I really could not believe it. I was already getting looked at by colleges my ninth grade year.

Now comfortable, the boys grabbed their oak cups and went to the water spring to drink some water. Realizing their situation, they went back to the missing sandbar. Upon their arrival, they began to comprehend why the sandbar had gone away. The tide had washed away the sand, and although it wasn't much of a swim back to land; the water was very deep.

The lights cut on, the music started and I gave the biggest smile I was able to deliver to the audience; it was my time to shine. That was the moment I realized I wanted to dance for the rest of my life. Dance defines me; it is the only thing that truly describes each and every aspect of my life.
