The answer to that question is simple, professional athletes are overpaid. I do not think an athlete that plays a game should be paid any more than a teacher that is raising the next generations. It is a profession, but I do not find it to be as important as most jobs. Emergency medical technicians (EMT) do not even get 15 dollars an hour. They are trying to save people’s lives while a bunch of guys throw around a ball.
I have had to accompany my parents to their part-time job for years now and I have always offered them any help that I could. Unfortunately, it is not an enjoyable task, but I gladly volunteer my help because I know how vigorously my parents work and how much they sacrifice in order to put a shelter above my head and food on my plate. Usually I find myself, tired and sleepy, doing most of my homework in the car because I do not have any other time to do it. However, just thinking about how my parents barely have the opportunity to do the things that they enjoy sparks me into
Reading was my only solace from the realities of struggling in school and not having many friends. When my reading addiction persisted into high school, I started to realize the severity of my actions, and how failure in high school was not an option. I took it upon myself to give up this obsession. Of course, I never expected my withdrawal to be easy, but I understood that the rewards would be worth it. Initially, I was always cranky because books were all I could think about.
Coming to the US for most people, was the best thing to ever happen in their lives. It was the same for me. Until a time in my life slightly changed that, but I still think it profited me and helped me grow tremendously. On my first day in middle, I was so nervous to meet new people that I did not really talk much to people the first couple of weeks. One-day as I was sitting in class doing my work I saw someone look at me and I was wondering what did I do to attracted the attention of that person.
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.
This semester I read the books con academy and partially through touching spirit bear. This was an insane to see myself even do that I have not read a single book since the 5th grade. My goal was to read 2 books this semester, I thought that it would be hard but not impossible. Turns out it was harder than I thought it would be, I barely got through one. Reading is a fun experience but a really hard one to focus on.
Make High School Great Again Most adults remember high school as the best years of their lives; however, this is not the reality for students today. The majority of teenagers would agree that high school is currently dreadful, mainly due to the outrageous bulk of homework they receive each night. Homework is now consuming students’ lives, leaving no free time to have fun, attend extracurricular events, sports games etc. Homework is becoming a popular public debate because of the adverse effects it has on America’s teens. In fact, many studies have proven that abolishing homework has a positive outcome.
During my years in high school I strive to be a very talented artist; only reason was because I was very good at art and wasn't good at anything else. I considered taking it up as a career even though back then in my middle school years I looked at as a hobby when I was bored or lonely, I didn't think my artistic ability was anything special because the people who dwelled in it, didn't make a lot of money, so I was made fun of by my brothers as the only sibling without any talent. So with graduation coming around I have to choose a career to pursue and stick with, so I can choose a college to go to, I chose to attend a college that specializes in the fine arts and I want it to be out of state because I wanted start my life without my family
I had always wondered how it must feel to have friends that care so much, they would drop everything just to come and help you. However, after months of searching my three best friends showed me what true friendship was. One of the most important male figures in my life taught me that what is yours will find you and that life gets a lot more beautiful when you start living for yourself. This really helped to shape me into the person that I am today because I no longer seek approval from anyone but myself. That piece of advice is what made the last two years of my high school career nothing short of
The great effect of being over fatigue is the decrease in the grades of students. It is very hard for them to concentrate on lectures in the morning when they have used up all their energy at night making school works. As stated in an article by Carpenter (2001): “You can be giving the most stimulating, interesting lectures to sleep deprived kids early in the morning or right after lunch, when they’re at their sleepiest, and the overwhelming drive to sleep replaces any chance of alertness, cognition, memory or understanding”. For sleep deprived individuals, being able to sleep just for a few minutes is a big opportunity to regain back all the lost times to
Though, my brothers were able to help out when I worked. I missed countless days of school and my grades quickly diminish. I’ve always been afraid of failing and always wanted to strive for greatness, but life has it’s up’s and down’s. For the first time in my life I was a
Admission: 0.86 The overall admission experiences at the Royal Ontario Museum were very neutral. While some people were satisfied and happy about the customer service, most people entered the museum with either negative or neutral feelings. Often times, students had problems with the customer services provided by the employees of the ROM. Naturally, the ROM, being a museum, has very small window of opportunity to meet or even exceed the guests’ expectations. Based on the reactions of many students, the ROM did not capitalize on their opportunity, but rather had employees mediocre.
I had ideas, but I didn’t have anything I was extremely passionate about yet. My junior year, while I was going through a rough patch in my life, I started to work at a daycare to get my mind off things and make a couple extra dollars. After only a couple shifts at the daycare, my passion was incredibly clear… teaching children. I was able to help children who needed me and it made me feel an incredible sense of worth at a time when I felt worthless. The way their problems were so small, the way they smile endlessly, and the way they were so innocent and untouched by the troubles of the world made me want to always be around them.
Outsiders, like myself, don’t see how they constantly have time and money to do everything they do. Most of the popular kids I know don’t have jobs, and their parents are working normal jobs with average income. My real question is why don’t they ever just take time for themselves? Don’t get me wrong, I really do enjoy hanging out with my friends, but I also love being alone with family or reading a book. Personally, though, I believe an outsider’s idea of a day out is more of a quiet getaway with close friends and family.
Of course, that was more of a scare tactic to make sure we weren’t bad kids. The exchange from eighth grade to freshman year was actually pretty easy. Most high school teachers are surprisingly nice and lenient when it comes to certain assignments and things, and a lot of them sympathize with your problems. My first problem was trying to find people I could talk to because most of my friends were divided among other classes and I, being the only teenager in the world without a cellphone, was not able
