We all have a week or a month, when things are not as expected! Let me go back to one such week in 2017 it was the week that everything that happened was not expected.

As for the characters that are unnecessary and will only be mentioned once, they are my Aunt’s son and my Uncle’s son. Also, there are Ahmed, my Father, and Fahad my cousin who have both passed away.

Me: Describe to me a typical school day for you? So my ideal day is to get up, go to the gym, come back, shower, get lunch with someone, and
I think the four day week will help out a lot. Most of all they will be fewer days you have to come to school. Most of all the students favor this idea of the four day week and a three day weekend. The kids get less burned out because of the four days instead of the five days and only have two days to sit back and chill and rest. Get their minds of fof school for three days and get out and do stuff with their lives
In the reading “On a Typical Day,” it provides statistics on typical day for the U.S Customs and Border Protection officers. The reading states many statistics that come to a surprise to me. One, for example, would be that CBP seize about 7,910 pounds of drugs each day. In which means in a year over 2,887,150 pounds of drugs are seized from individuals attempting to smuggle over the border. I found this very shocking because I guess I never realized how many individuals do try to cross the border while attempting to smuggle in drugs. Another statistic that surprised me is that CBP intercepted 20 fraudulent documents, which means in a year 7,300 fraudulent documents are intercepted. I’m really surprised that the number is only 20 a day because
Driving, in theory, is a simple concept. Push the gas to go, and go straight until you want to turn. Driving on a lonely road, down a straight path is something most could do in their sleep. But continue down this straight path and it will eventually be interrupted by a new road. It is where these two roads converge that things begin to get complicated. The intersection of two roads that come from two different beginnings, and lead to two completely different destinations; there are regulations to ensure each driver makes it through the crossroads. Now imagine a road with five intersections, or ten, or fifteen. Each person is a combination of these intersections; a mess of pasts and futures that make her unique. Society has attempted to regulate

In your free time, when you have it, what do you like to do? Not counting acting classes, usually I'll Skype my best friend. I also read. I don't have a lot of time to read 'cause I'm very busy, but I love to read. I like rereading the Harry Potter series.

I really enjoyed the, What’s the Average activity. During this activity, I learned a unique way of learning mean, median and mode. When I began this activity, I thought I already learned the three averages in the easiest way. In elementary school and middle school, it was hard for me to understand median when it came to two data points that ending up in the middle. I could never understand why the median could not be both data points. Folding the graph paper with all the data points made understanding the concept easier due to the fact I could visually see the location of the median. Another benefit that I found was it would help students understand that the median is always going to be located in the middle of the data. Another way I could use this concept is compare the median to a median in a rode. I could explain to them that the yellow lines on a road represent the median and the lanes represent the data points. Using this will give the students a chance to use their prior knowledge to aid them to understand the concept.
Based on what I have read so far in $2 a day is eye opening. We live in a country of wealth, and the fact that there are cities around the country where people are living below the poverty line is shocking. I would assume that since we are living in a country where there are so many job opportunities, good paying jobs, and a good economy that poverty like in the developing countries wouldn't exist here. I was very wrong, the author stated that about 1.5 million households were depending on $2 a day per household member. I couldn't imagine myself in their position, trying to survive with $2 a day. If I were to compare what I spend on a day, it is ten times more than what they spend a day. Although there are government services that can help
As Deng Xiaoping voiced, “It doesn’t matter if a cat is black or white, so long as it catches mice”. In like manner, the short story “A Day in the Country”, by Dan Jacobson, is from a young, Jewish son’s point of views as his family eyewitnesses Afrikaaners tormenting a black child. The Afrikaaners swear at the Jewish family, which angers the father. This results in the Jewish family, chasing after the Afrikaaners until they talk out their issues. Another short story “The Old Chief Mshlanga”, by Doris Lessing, is about a young, white girl who grows up on her father’s farm being taught that African servants have no value. As she matures, she discovers that her white colony has just as much value as the native colony and wishes they could live in peace. These authors and many more wrote stories that took place during apartheid, when racial segregation was at it’s peak. In these South African short stories, children are taught racism from cultural traditions which further impacts their lives until they realize these ways are not acceptable; Even though these stories are from different families, the parents still teach the same racist things’ from society. “A Day in the Country” exhibits the prevalent oppression that different races are facing during this time. The oppression leads to encouraged support between more than one ethnic group. “The Old Chief Mshlanga” teaches readers that different cultures can coexist without added drama.
