during the finales months of my senior year in high school, I began to start thinking about my life after high school. I had no idea of what I wanted to be in life. I knew I had liked arguing with people and standing up for what I believe. Then one day, I was watching one of my favorite movies “Legally Blonde”. A brief summary of the movie is that it is about a “dumb blonde’ girl who gets the opportunity of a lifetime to become a lawyer by attending Harvard Law School. In the beginning, she was lost
in every adolescent 's life in which reality begins to strike them. From an adults perspective this early stage is viewed simply as immaturity. Starting high school was a big change in my life and was a step in the direction of young adulthood.As individuals around me attempted to navigate down that similar path I gained a crisp taste of my identity. All of a sudden what was once a long distance future evolved into the near future as high school years passed and a test of my character was close at
It was my junior year in high school, when my life began to change. While I sat in my English class, with my head laid on top of the hard wooden cold desk, I thought to myself, what am I going to do. How was I supposed to provide for this child, but my mind kept think back to how was I going to let my mother know, that her youngest high school daughter was about to become a teen parent. I was scared. I was scared for my future. As the days became months, my belly continued to grow more and more.
After high school I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for a career. After years of wandering I decided to join the military. I completed basic training and technical school in Texas. I was miles away from the comfort of family and friend back home in Maryland. This was the first time that I was truly on my own. After training was complete I was moved to Spokane, Washington. where I completed my term in Spokane and it was time to reenlist or get out the military. I was ready to have my life back so
She was only 40 years old when she passed; a wife, mother of three young kids, and a teacher at the local high school gone within two short years of her diagnosis. She still had half of her life left to experience, hundreds of her kids’ sports games to attend, and thousands of days left to educate the next generation, yet those opportunities were taken away in the blink of an eye. In the wake of her passing, I witnessed the up and down emotions of a broken family, the shock of a hurting community
with my life is build and create. As a kid I was obsessed with building Legos but not with directions. Figuring out how to put it together without directions was a challenge but all that more satisfying. I also enjoyed tinkering with anything I could get my hands on, from toys to mechanisms. Throughout my life I have experienced many different events that have altered my thinking and aspirations for the future. Teaching myself and learning from others was the only way to get here today. My interest
Honestly I love college rather than my high school. My high school can rot in hell for all I care. They always left us loads of homework, six packets plus reading a day, for six classes. As if we did not have a life, and we went home to be couch potatoes. Some of us had a job, others like myself were in a sport or club, so when we got home either it was 10 PM or 11 PM. Monday through Friday we call them all nighters because we wouldn 't go to sleep until 3 AM just to get done with half of the homework
When I entered high school as a freshman, I would have never guessed what type of person I would become by my senior year. There have been so many events that have shaped my mentality and perception of life. Throughout high school I have discovered my various passions as a musician, cinematographer, a leader and a Christian. Of all my talents, music comes most natural and has proven to be my ultimate ardor. Although I cannot say exactly what it is I plan to pursue within the field of music, I know
want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go,” Unknown. Up to age 14, my experience with letting go was discarding things that had lost their value or upgrading to the newest model. I traded my cherished Nintendo DS for a cell phone, Barbie’s for high end makeup, and Hot Wheels for a glossy Schwinn bicycle. I was a naïve teen who was yet to face life’s tough lessons. The sun beamed as it cut through the clouds
During the last four years of my high school life I came across a number of different teachers, all of them together had different styles of teaching and some were more positive than others. Be that as it may, despite the different characters that wanted to mentor me and those who care not too there were three women who gave of them self and did their best to teach a young Black girl a few extra things. Distinguished from their co-workers it showed me just what a great teacher is.
