This past year, I have been apart of Naperville Central’s brand new Special Spaces club. When my friend approached me and asked me to join, I agreed even though I had no clue what I was involving myself in. In retrospective, I can honestly say that becoming a part of Special Spaces has been one of the most meaningful, fun, and fulfilling experiences I have had in high school.
Inspired by watching either one of either one of my parents drive from the passenger seat having trouble focusing of the road due to the brightness of the sun. Many accidents happen on the roads all over the United States because of the intense brightness of the sun blocking driver's vision while steering. Federal regulations against tinted windows make it hard to do much about the problem without facing a penalty. This invention will help drivers overcome the obstacle of driving almost blinded by the brightest star in our solar system and also help avoid tinting their windshields darker than it is legal to.
I think that is an excellent thought, Lindsey. When I first read this that is what I thought as well. Whenever Ada begins to let Susan love her, and whenever Susan starts to show more affection Ada lashes out. I think that Ada lashes out because she feels like she is not deserving of love, and she is not deserving of nice things. This just tears me up inside when a person does not feel like they are worth being loved. The amount of damage that Ada has suffered is almost irreversible now and I think Susan is starting to realize that this will not be an easy fix. I am honestly surprised at how normal Jamie is because even though he was not the one who was abused, he witnessed the abuse. I am glad that he has not lost his trust in people. This
When I was young my Dad would always remind me of how important these years as a kid are. He would always say watch how you act as a kid, for it will set the stage for the rest of your life. So many people I know ruined their lives when they were kids. This small, yet so important statement runs through my mind everyday. I love how everyone says they don’t care what people think of them, but I wish they knew how important it is to have a good image. I am not perfect, but I would like to be close as possible. But as Salvador Dali said “Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it. “ The problem I see is everyone wanting to be someone that they are not. Sure, we all have our idols that we look
So you might be wondering “how did it ruin and save your life?” well it goes like this. When I was growing up I was introduced to gospel and country music. I then shook both off and went to rap and hip hop. Once I tried those I started to change. I was noticing that a lot of what I was taught I was also throwing right out the door. I did change from it but here is how the story goes.
I wake up something is different in the environment. I hear a lot of sounds; it comes out of the room where I am. It´s different sound from everything I heard before. I´m continue walking outside the room, immediately I see a strange artifact, which I have never seen before. I´m looking it so excited, because it´s capable to produce sounds and colors by itself, also there is wonderful women there. It is too thin to contain a woman inside; perhaps they shrouded her.
Reminiscent of the days in his youth, Paul Bogard presents the readers of the LA Times with another way humans are detrimental to themselves. Probably the MOST important invention of the last century, electricity has made it into every part of our modern lives. As Bogard explains, as darkness falls “we reach for a light switch,” without any thought of repercussion. However, in his article, “Let there be dark,” Bogard proposes that natural darkness is diminishing, which has health, ecological, and psychological effects on not only humans but every species of earth.
It is the summer of 2018 and there is still an ongoing Syrian war. As of now there are around one million Syrians coming into a new world, joining the Americas. I am kind of excited to possibly bring a new person into my life. However with school starting back up, it might be very difficult to juggle both new and old challenges. The new world being with the Syrian refugees and the old being my normal school life.
Pass, Set, SPIKE! I sprinted across the court, pursuing my base position with sweat rolling down my cheeks and weight upon my shoulders; the score of the fifth set was 13-12 and I played passionately, letting the game engulf me entirely. This was when I felt the most alive. But the universe is fighting me to throw my passion away in the garbage. Volleyball is the passion that I have committed myself to master for years and often, unfortunate circumstances have pushed me to stop participating in the game. Discouragement from many individuals, financial instabilities, and most of all, health problems and injuries I have faced were all obstacles that hindered my path to success. Every instance I lost control of what occurred in this unpredictable universe, it was as if everything and everyone just wanted to keep me away from a simple volleyball, but why was playing so disgraceful?
Have you ever seen the starry night sky dance? How about seeing a dark sky filled with stunning lights, hearty laughs, echoes of indulgences or the bellowing songs of the drunken people? Can you imagine a starry night sky of radiant ribbons streaming across the luscious black atmosphere hinted with little specks of white dust? Imagine a majestic festival painting the sky with all of these things; envision spending the time there yourself with you loving family and trustful friends?
He wanted to know why was Wes talking to Marie while she was sick. I thought of my answer for a long time and finally said Marie has some information for your dad to hear. He thought the BIA handled their problems but I told him that Wes was just helping her. I walked away not far from David to a tree. I told David that I liked the wind. It was true. The wind reminded me of North Dakota. My dad use to curse the wind and say it was carrying the topsoil and giving it to South Dakota. I always loved the wind though. I loved the way it felt. David told me it makes good fishing because it riffles the water so the fish won't be able to see you. I told him the wind had a different smell here. In North Dakota the wind always smelled like dirt. Even
I was thinking about an item in my life that held great meaning, an object that was full of nostalgia, and at first, I thought of my acoustic guitar, but I realized that my blanket was the right topic to write about. It seems strange that something so simple could be so important, but it holds many memories of my childhood, which felt like a sturdy subject for this write-up. My blanket has a calming aroma that smells of flowers and fresh air, and that scent is what reminds me of the many things I have been through. For example, there were many times when I struggled with challenges in my life I would comfort myself by wrapping it around me.
Where are the prayers when those suffering don't look like you? Where is the outrage when the victims don't pray like you? Why don’t we cry when the hurt don’t live like you? In the days since the City of Lights was rocked by more horrific attacks, there have been hundreds of articles written, thousands of opinion pieces published, and millions of statuses shared. I, like so many others was fixated on the TV screen, my thumbs scrolling through my Twitter newsfeed, as the attacks played out on realtime over the internet and the airwaves.
We had to a drill big and strong enough to get to the center of Earth. Also, suit that would keep me cool. Then I was off to the center of earth. I saw basalt and granite in the crust. It was very hot in the crust. When i hit the mantle, it cooled off a little bit. It felt like it took about a year but it only took about a month or two to get out of the lithosphere. Then i hit the asthenosphere and it took about two to three months to get out of the asthenosphere.Then i got to the outer core which is liquid. So i cut of my engine so it wouldn’t waste the gas and started to sink. It was getting a little colder the lower i got. It only took about five hours playing the xbox i put in the drill and then when i reached the inner core, i turned it
