I still had some family problems involving my brother and some wrong choices but I was more used to it as it was the same thing as the year before and it didn’t really affect me anymore and I just went on with school and sports. I had some problems in the start of the year with science but I slowly got better and raised my grade to a proficient. I once again played many sports and balanced my grades to the best of my ability, really only having trouble in music class. I got through 7th grade much easier than I did in 6th and enjoyed it way more. Sports, once again didn’t go too good on the team side of things, but my skill and playing time increased in football, volleyball, and softball. I kept around the same amount of minutes in basketball as years before, starting mostly at SG, sometimes PG, and hardly ever but sometimes playing
Children running around, screaming, smiling. Just a normal day as a water park lifeguard. I take a friends spot for their break, as i often did. He was the reason I got hired in the first place. $10 an hour to pace back and forth he told me. My 16 year old self couldn’t ask for more. That was 3 months ago and I had no excitement over the job left. I find myself daydreaming staring at the bottom of the pool as I pace back and forth. I hear a splash from the area to the left of me and see a young girl struggling to keep herself up. I kick my shoes off the second I see her and dive to assist her. I get to her while she’s still struggling, I pull her onto my tube and begin my spiel. You are required to see the person and react in 10 seconds, I took 6. I smile happy to do well and keep the young girl safe. As I’m filling out the paperwork, as we did with all rescues, my managers call me over. They say I did well on the time requirement side, but I was written up. Kicking my shoes off was wasting time in a situation where every second counts. I started of thinking I didn't deserve the write up, since I had saved the young girl as
My relationship with writing has varied throughout my life. As a young child, I found that though the process of writing came easily once I started, I dreaded the preparation. However, whenever someone asked me if I enjoyed writing, my answer was always yes. I spent time in elementary school writing on my own; I found it to be a great creative outlet as well as a stress reliever. I know, you’re probably wondering how much stress could I have had at seven or eight years old. You’d be surprised. Anyway, that’s not the point of this letter.
My first example of one of my peices of work is my Garage Sale flyer. I choes this as one of my examples because it demonstates my understandings of our unit all about creating flyers,business cards etc… The strongest aspects of this peice of work is the way I have all the information needed in an organized way. It does not look super cluttered. I think i could always work on something with any peice of work i do. With this peice i think i could work on my spelling and puncuation. Some of the skills i use to create this peice were; Change the backround, Bordes and accents, Text and
My name is Yris Guzman and I’m a senior at Perry High School. I’ve always struggled writing essays. The things I struggle the most with is grammar, spelling, coming up with a thesis, and organizing my thoughts onto paper. I hope by the end of this semester I become a better writer. We all have strengths and weaknesses.
I would be an outstanding student in Spelman College's faculty classes because I am hard worker. My work has always came first even when I had experienced a big transition in my life I didn't allow that to stop me from doing my work. My work was always a outlet for me to express myself and to show my teachers how I really think. For instance, in my English Composition Class we read a poem called "I Want A Wife by Judy Brady" then we read a book named "Fences by August Wilson", and one day we were in class discussing the poem in the book and it shocked my teacher when I made the connection between the two. I thought my teacher made us read "I want a wife" because in the book "Fences" the main character named Troy expected everything in that
Throughout my high school career, I have been exposed to many different elements of writing and, although some teachers have emphasized certain areas more than others, I feel I have come a long way as a writer. Despite this I also know I have much further to go. This fact became very clear to me as I was taking my previous course of English, Accelerated English Three. Within this course I was introduced to the MLA method of citation, I experienced disappointment due to receiving a lower grade than I had desired, and I discovered difficulties such as my impatient tendencies to look over errors and mistakes during the editing processes.
My experience with writing has been very up and down because I have a hard time focusing on the topic. I would say that’s something I need to honestly work on because my attitude is if I'm not into it then I'm not doing it simple. Some of my past teachers in high school said that I could write but I honestly don’t know about now. I'll admit that I've gotten lazy in the sense that if I'm not into the work then I'll just pass it with a D or just retake it. I need to get out of that and just suck it up and get it over and done with.
I started to write when I was 10 years old. It was under the recommendation of my therapist who believed that it would help me release negative emotions, and it did. Since then I have loved to write stories, journals, poems, anything that could set my imagination free. However as a writer I’ve always felt unsuccessful I have always felt that the pieces I write are never completed. Even more that as a writer I was not good enough and I shouldn’t show my writings to anyone that I shouldn't even bother to continue as a writer. These reason both motivate me and make me not want to continue but I choose to let it motivate me because I
As far back as I can remember I’ve been a self-serving fuck up. My main goals in life was to party, and get as high as I could before I came down, and had to face the harsh reality that came along with being clean for more than five minutes.
I don’t really like writing because whenever my teacher tells me to write about something I start to get confused on what to say then I start to get mad at myself and start to cry.The best thing I have ever written is when I had to wrote about legos, it was a nine pages and alot idioms and more.
My experience with writing has been one filled with . When I first began writing I actually enjoyed it quite a lot. I liked that I could express all of my opinions and feelings on a sheet of paper, but as I begin to grow older my interest in writing has significantly decreased. I do not like it as much because when writing there are so many rules and factors that I have to take into consideration. Presently, I have a love-hate relationship with writing. The only time I love writing is when it is an interesting topic. When I am given an interesting topic to write about I could write pages and pages about it. For instance, when I was told to choose a subject and write an essay about that topic I wrote a 5 paged essay about the murders of Nicole
Have you ever tried something hard and failed but still trying continuously until you accomplish your goal? That’s me trying to improve my writing skill. My goal right now is very simple: to pass English 49, and then finish both English 101, 205. However, I’m still struggle with the writing process
