I chose to come to Job Corps was because I felt like there was nothing constructive for me to do in life. I felt as if I was just sitting around doing nothing all day long. After I completed my sophomore year in high school, I went job hunting that summer. I filled out multiple applications and every last job I applied for and attended an interview with never return my calls. I realized that without a high school diploma or trade related skills, my future would be dark.
When I found out that I had to libero for one of the biggest games of the season, I was dripping with drops of nerves. I never had a lot of experience playing on varsity and especially not the libero, because on B-squad I was the setter, which is two way different positions. I had two practices before it was game time, in both those practices I was shaking with fear that I would mess up and lose this opportunity. All the upperclassmen counted on me to do a good job, I was weighed down by all the pressure of everyone. I was expected to do just as good as the senior libero did in the past, I
My grades dropped significantly for years. By the time I graduated high school, I had a negative outlook on life. I went to college and ended up not attending classes. I was tired of living a life that had no meaning to
Straight A’s on a report card after a long stressful semester. School’s out and now the whole summer is for relaxing, or is it? No, because you totally forgot about that AP summer assignment you picked up before school ended, didn’t you? Now you are going to be putting off the packet of work until last minute where you’re going to stress about not having it done and last minute be rushing to complete it. Piles of work accumulating into the deep pits of your binder and yet there doesn’t seem to be enough time to get to it.
At first I started off taking 1 or 2 classes per semester, but outside interference had me gradually upping the classes. Between work, a lack of motivation due to not having any idea of what I wanted out of life carved out, and pressure from family, I found myself not prepared for these classes. This is what you will see as you look up and down my transcript and see W's and WF's. You will see the unachieved goals, the times I thought I was an angel, the times I dreamt of being perfect. At the time of writing this paper I am 23 years old.
She’ll never forgive me. I thought. I was gloomy the rest of the day, and woke up the next day, still upset. Other than that one day, most of the practices went swimmingly. I had some memorization problems, but closer to performance time, I hammered down of memorization and got everything down.
He comes the school only for one day a year and then stops attending. Since Scout does not like school, she does not want to come to school too. Atticus tells her that the law demands that she go to school. Chapter 4 The rest of the school year passes poorly for Scout, who constantly feel frustrated due to slow curriculum. The next summer Dill has returned to Maycomb.
An example would be on page 37 when he told Caroline “Report and be damned to ye!” when she said he would be reported if he was not respectful. Furthermore, the whole Ewell family are disappointments and are the most irresponsible people in the town. Their father uses there his relief checks on whisky, and his kids are left to starve with hunger pains every day. It is nauseating and repulsive. Atticus told Scout that the Ewells have been a disgrace in Maycomb for three generations, and that none of them have had a honest job or day of day of work, that he can
I learned this from one failure I experienced which I would never want to repeat again. The last year of my stay in the United States, I became depressed. I did not have friends that I could laugh heartily with. I did not do well in my classes. Although I pushed myself to do so, I did not want to go to school.
Broken heart hurts your feeling. Nobody associates broken heart with happiness. Likewise, I felt terribly sad when I had my heart broken. I remember it felt so disastrous for me that I almost couldn 't do anything for one month. However, as time passed by, I began to think about what lesson I could learn from it.
