It was record breaking temperatures on this July 4th day. Red, white, and blue filling up the stands. Fans and umbrellas protecting spectators from the heat of the sun. It was about game time and I was getting ready to take the field for the last home game. Butterflies in my stomach, but I had to tell myself “it’s just another game”. Even though in my heart I knew it was not just another game.
The day started off like a normal school, this day was actually turning out to be great. Of course, that did not last. I get this text from a friend saying “Hey, you need to check this out” there was a screenshot of a picture along with it. I couldn’t really see what it was so I clicked on it to get a better look. Before I tell you what the picture was, hold onto your hats because this is what made the rest of freshman year a disaster. I click on the picture, it was this instagram page with some girls private part completely showing. I immediately click out of it and text my friend back “Why are you sending this to me, I don’t want to see these type of things”. My friend replies back “Did you not see the username? It says that it is your account”. I click back on
As I stood on the outside of the arena watching teen girls traditional finish dancing, my stomach filled with butterflies. I walked into the arena as the announcer says “Next up teen girl's jingle,” with all the other dancers in my category. It was Sunday, the last day of Indian Summer Pow Wow, and my last contest for this pow wow, this year. Although I was nervous, I was also filled with happiness, confidence, and gratefulness. “Take it away boys” the announcer says. That’s when I knew that the drum group was going to start playing and this meant I had to start dancing.
Entering high school from your nearby middle school, there’s going to be a handful of people. There’s going to be the ones you are confident you’re going to talk, laugh, and continue to make memories with, the ones you doubt you’ll ever speak to, and ones you have yet to ever meet. Something I learned quickly, is that there’s so many people and your connections with them change constantly and they can change you.
I made up lie after lie of reasons why I was sad; I was pretty convincing. I had it ready in my hand as I walked through the hallway. I entered the choir room and all of a sudden got very happy; I was about to be popular again! My ignorance and arrogance led to me making the worst decision of my life; I handed her the letter. Her face went to shock right away and it was at that moment, my body began to shake as I realized that I had made a great mistake. She ran right out of our class and to the office, letter in hand. My name was called over the PA system to come down and I nearly fainted. When my teacher found out why I was going down, she started crying, which led to my whole class crying. My plan had worked, I had the whole school crying because they thought I was going to die. I felt like I was going to die. The assistant principal immediately began to grill me with questions; my eyes began to pour. My mom was called in and I was able to make the excuse that someone else wrote it and it got switched around. In doing this, I was able to avoid getting in trouble with the school, but my family was disappointed in me. More importantly, I was disappointed in
That day when I was walking through Air Force tunnel I walked by the Class President. He’s a prior E-5 and a prepster so I knew of him but we had never met. He asked if I had a minute to talk and so we went to my room. He asked me why I looked so stressed out. I said that I was an awful plebe and felt really bad about what I did. He asked me why I felt bad about
When I was in eighth grade there was an app called Yik Yak, that was extremely popular. Of course I downloaded it, and on the app, it showed people nearby using the location of your phone, and I normally only talked to people that were from my school. One day while on the app I got a message from a boy that was my same age but I did not recognize him. His name was Theo and he was very good looking. In the message he told me that he was
So there was this girl in middle school which her names was Betty Snider she wasn't rich nor poor and she was kind to everyone even if they were not so nice not to long ago she became friends with Brit Daniels. She was almost friends with everyone and she was also friends with Brad Smith he was a football player but not a Popular one but we was very close until he got a girlfriend and she didn't like us and would be defraud to him and we would try and tell him but he wouldn't listen and got mad because he thought we was trying to break them up. One day i came to school and and i opened my locker and this piece of paper came out and i opened and read it and it said “You shouldn't have done that and you will pay ” and i looked around to see if anyone was staring but i didn't notice noone and i asked Brit if she could notice the person's handwriting ,but she didn't so we both were clueless on who the person was and what did i do?
It was saturday, October 2016. Me and my friend J.T pulled up to Michael Wood’s house. His mom Alexis was throwing a party. Because Mr.wood just got a promotion at work. And it was their last week here before they moved to Detroit. Over 1,200 miles away from where I live in Miami Florida. J.T and I hang out for most of the party. Until I saw Michael. I wanted to congratulate him and his dad. But it would be too sad. Hey Michael what's up, oh how's it going bro. Nothing much I replied. I really wanted to ask him about his dad's promotion so I
Carter started to spit on my dug up the hole and when I wasn’t looking Johnna was behind me and shoved a pile of dirt on my new hoodie. I aggressively stood up and yanked the him down and said “Leave me alone, what have I done to deserve this?” and there was this awkward silence. Ms.Rancho walked over, telling me to sit on the bench and then she let the boys get away from what just happened and she accused me for starting it and told me that I will no longer have recess time, but I angrily told her “did you not see what just happened!?” And she quickly barged in, saying “ENOUGH!’ When recess time was over, we headed back and as I walked to my seat, Mike put his feet on top of my chair, so I pulled my chair, hoping that I gave him a coucasition. Mike said “ow” and his friends asked “what happened, bro?” he whispered and grindingly stared at me. When we were dismissed, my dad came to pick me up, and I was not aware that Johnna was following me but little did he know that there was someone with me, so he quickly tried to grab me by the sleeves, paying me back after what I did to mike’s feet and my dad was like “what do you think you’re
Now, I am doing well, feeling challenged in my classes and have a lot of lectures who truly do care about their students. I am on a campus that offers the help I need when things get rough. It took a lot of time and years of struggling, but I made it through. Even though I hated high school and all the I experienced in those years, I’m thankful that I had those experiences to help me get to where I am now. A lesson to my teenage self: You’ll find yourself looking back on experiences when things didn’t work out and saying, “That is who I was, and this is who I am now.” High school isn’t for everyone, and it certainly wasn’t for me — but without the experience, I wouldn’t be where I am
I’m sure many have shared stories of their high school experiences and can relate when I say those four years have taught me many lessons. During this time, I’d come face to face with the fraudulent friendships, temporary romances, and other high school dramas that my parents once warned me about—those of which I simply brushed off as myths. It wasn’t the 90’s anymore— times have changed and people are different—or at least, that’s what I thought.
My two photos are of living room spaces, one more modern than the other. I personally love the 2nd image better as a living space because of the natural light. This element allows the space to seem much larger, if the first image would have more natural light it would really open the space up. The texture element is a great focal point for image 2 and adds a lot of character to the modern space. Color is a great element that can liven up a space, especially with using color for accent pieces and not on walls and floors. This also allows continuing to update the space as trends change without re-doing structural changes that can be more expensive. Image 1 is very neutral colors and seems dated in comparison to the 2nd image.
He tells me how sorry he was that I was locked in a closet while the other kids were playing outside. “We were going to leave in two days. However one of the main rocket’s part was stolen. Therefore our the rocket can not launch so our flight is canceled. I tried to get us onto the supply rocket, but the airport would not allow it. I guess we will have to wait about a month before we can go back to Earth again.” My first thought was I couldn’t survive one more month. My classmates would give me about a week of sympathy and start bullying me again. My only hope was to find the stolen part of the rocket in one week.
