Now most people would be nervous of moving to a new school, but all we had to do was move through new hallways since our middle and high school are connected. Freshman year was probably the hardest year I've had looking back at it now and shaped me to be who I am today. Back in 2013 my grandpa had passed away from a rare form of lung cancer and my Mina (grandma) was suffering on and off from it, having no one to take care of her my mom would stay at her house 5 to 6 days out of the week and she would go there right after work. I would hardly see my mom except in the mornings before school and by than she would be sleeping after driving home from Danbury at 5am. My dad was hardly around from work and just not wanting to be home.
Overall the industrialization had a greater positive affect on society because of child labor. It was cruel that the kids had to work in the factories. (They worked from five in the morning until seven at night when there were other activities . Document 7)( When there were no activities going on will they were working it would be from six in the morning until seven at night. Document 7)( They had only forty minutes of lunch and had to drink water when they got the chance too.
I don't normally get home until 9:00 at night and that gives me a little time to be able to do my homework and still eat and I have that schedule from Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday and on Saturdays I have it for 4 hours I worked there my school struggles with my ADHD and my out of school struggles to and by that 4 years I got A's and B's and that's it on my report card but this year I've been going above and beyond and I have been a straight-A student all year long I'm proud of myself for doing this and being able to work through my struggles. I have volunteered for years and I'm going to 4 years to come. I have helped clean up the environment every year and I I do the project clean stream I go all out every year my friends and I. Back last year by ourselves over 10 bags of Stuff Plus Rusty poles that we found in our Woods. I've cleaned up my neighborhood and my town 4 years and I feel great about it I feel like I'm making a difference in our environment.
for the first two years I always complained “It's so boring” and stuff like “don't force me to go again” but I got my stubbornness from my parents, so I kept going. It took a long time for me to stop complaining and realize that nothing is really “girly”. It wasn't until my fourth year that i realized it was something i really enjoyed. the dance shoppe has weekly hour long classes, usually just practicing, learning new steps, and combos and stuff. Then once it hits christmas break, we start to learn our dance.
This past year has been particularly hard and I reached a point financial that I had to apply for a one-time emergency scholarship fund in order to remain in school. My parents are unable to help support me financially due to debt. If I do not receive additional funding I will have to leave my university and put my education on hold
When I was around ten years old, I broke my femur skiing. It was a pretty bad break, and I ended up having to stay in the hospital for two and half weeks in traction, and then a body cast for four months, followed by extensive rehab and physical therapy. This injury played a huge role in my life and is actually what motivated me to go into the health care industry, specifically nursing. Because of my injury, I wasn’t able to go to school for a lot of that time. I had two tutors that would come and help me with school.
My dad is currently working as a forklift driver for Driscoll’s where he has been working for over twenty-five years. My mom worked in the fields picking strawberries for about twenty years. Me and my sister were about three and four years old and my dad didn’t want my mom to work in order for her to be there for us and take care of us. With my mom being unemployed, money became limited. My parents couldn’t afford cable neither internet.
I didn’t see him again until I was an adult. During my childhood, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents because my mother had to teach in another town. I loved going to school and was an excellent student. I continued to go to school until 10th grade when my grandmother and mother became ill so I had to take care of them. I was raised to not believe in segregation.
I didn 't like piano at first - I wasn 't very good and I was very far behind. But my teacher was very kind and almost like an Aunt or a second Mom. She inspired my initial love of piano. If I hadn 't taken lessons from her I probably wouldn 't be pursuing a career in music. I lived in Costa Rica for two years as a young teenager.
In middle school, I wasn't able to hang out with my friends outside of school often, but when I entered high school, I was able to hang out with my friends outside of school more often because my curfew was extended. My curfew to be home in middle school was 6:00 p.m., in comparison to my curfew in high school, which was to be home at 7:00p.m. As a result of this, I would go volunteering, go to the mall and go eat out with my friends during the weekends because my curfew is longer than it was before. Having a longer curfew is the last reason why the transition from middle school to high school was a big change for
