High school are the memorable years before adulthood, they are the years to experiment, stress over nothing, and just in general find yourself. But with each year that passes by you learn new lessons, new morals which helps you get one step closer to finding you. As cliche as that might sound it is our reality.
Freshman year we came to Eastside thinking either we were the best in our class and high school was going to be a piece of cake, or there was no way we were going to keep up with the rigorous academics it puts on us. Either way we were able to find a group of people we would hang out with the first couple of months. Or years. We start labeling people as the “smart” one or that one person we shouldn’t take seriously. It’s highschool we get it’s the time to recreate your image, at a place where only few actually know you.
The thing we often forget though is those people are most likely not the people you are going to end up with, make sure to not feel tied down to those 5 people, get to meet everyone and whatever you do, don’t start drama. We have bigger things to worry about. And those labels you put on people are just that labels, they aren’t who those people actually are. The “smart” person is put in a position where they feel pressured to succeed at all times, and those who struggle a bit to understand concepts feel useless. So go ahead and instead of labeling support unconditionally. But the most important part about Freshman year, is being yourself. Don’t hold a
Do you remember all those days as a little kid you envied all those highschool teenagers?As a little kid I’m pretty sure we all dreamed of the day we would begin highschool,but we knew highschool was all peaches and cream.So we all sorta dreaded the day would come,yet we knew there was some perks to it too.I always looked forward to numerous of things,but two of the perks I yearned the most were the diversity of classes there were and the fredom and spirit most highshoolers seemed to have.Of course thougt there is a downfall to highschool too,the loads of homework and the strict teachers behind them.
High school is one of the most stressful experiences, one of the most challenging experiences, one of the most amazing experiences. Freshman year sets the tone for how a student will spend four years of their life; although, it is possible to change the course of

This book is a true story based on author ‘Dave’ getting abused between the age of four and twelve by his mother. He lived in the heart of San Francisco with his mom Catherine, dad Stephen and three brothers Ron, Russell, and Stan. He got loved from parents until Catherine became alcoholic. Due to her depression, she became alcoholic, and she started to abuse Dave excluding three other brothers. Dave’s mom starved him, and she physically and emotionally abused him like forcing him to stand on a hot stove or making fun of him in front of others. Stephen knew that his son was getting abused by his wife, but he abandoned his son and left his family. Catherine’s violence got worse after Stephen left the house. One day, Dave’s school nurse found scars and bruises on Dave’s body, and she called the police. Police found out what Catherine has done to Dave, and they decided to isolate Dave from his mom, and that is when he became free.
After a long look at assessment I was feeling quite discouraged about teaching art. The check boxes on a rubric, the standards that needed to be pushed on students feel constrictive. In film, you have a lot of planning to do prior to shooting your first shot. Sometimes the thrill in creating in this medium is about the script. Sometimes it’s the costumes or the lighting. The choices are endless. I want to make my classroom feel less like a student/teacher driven assessment and much more like a studio with mentees. Kathryn Douglas’ article was an inspiration for my post this week. Her expression of freedom in the classroom is inspiring.
Read Write Discover (RWD) is a free literacy tutoring program that targets students with the greatest need. In San Jose, these students have language barriers; they speak Vietnamese, Spanish, and Mandarin. As coordinator, I recruited bilingual tutors to fill these needs and assumed that my role in day-to-day tutoring ended there. I was wrong.
Words leave the mouth but cannot be heard. Nothing can be heard amongst all the noise. Music blares, and people cheer. Everyone stands and puts their hand to their hearts. But the players, the people kids everywhere idolize and look up to, kneel down. The few players stick out like a sore thumb in the wave of fans standing around them. This has been the cause for huge debate, but the question is, is this okay? Many problems have been caused when the world of politics mixed with America's favorite pastime; sports. Most of the problems originated when Donald Trump became president. The issues causing the most commotion among people are professional athletes of all different sports deciding to take a knee during the National Anthem, and the decision of The Golden State Warriors refusing to go to the white house. Although these are only some problems concerning this matter, they seem to be the most popular among the people of America.
You are on a plane 10,000 feet up, and it is negative 4 degrees fahrenheit, with a 200 mph wind in your face, and there are 23 pounds of money attached to you, and 4 parachutes tightly strapped on your body. Would you jump? After threatening to blow up a passenger jet and getting his demands of $200,000 and 4 parachutes, Dan Cooper jumped out of a Boeing 727 on November 24, 1971 and was never seen or heard from after that. Dan was mistakenly said as D.B in a newspaper article and the name stuck with him ever since. There are theories that Cooper landed in a body of water and died because of hypothermia, or some say that he died after the jump and got eaten by wolves. The theory that's most likely proven is that D.B. Cooper survived his escape. There is anecdotal and physical evidence, and expert testimony that can prove Cooper’s survival.
A mammal, completely covered in scales sits in the grasslands at night. At only about 5 pounds, these creatures roam alone and are ready to protect themselves from any danger by spewing a noxious acid into the air. They roll completely into a ball, covering their faces, and use the scales on their tails to attack predators who approach. Completely harmless, the animal eats ants with only their sticky tongues that extend further than their body length. Although one probably couldn’t guess what animal this is, these eight species across Asia and Africa are considered ‘vulnerable to critically endangered.’ This animal can protect itself from its expected predators, but humans have become the unstoppable surprise. Thrown into bags and taken from protected lands, the animal mentioned is the pangolin.
When you enter high school as a freshman all you’re trying to do is fit in one way or another and sometimes you are willing to do some pretty dumb things in order to fit in. I remember when I had begun high school that I was mainly focusing on trying to fit in really hard so I made friends with the wrong people and made some pretty dumb decisions that I really regret like cutting class and disregarding my homework and I have never regretted it more. When you start high school you usually are really insecure of yourself but what you need to remember is that all you need to do is be yourself and don’t let anyone else influence your decisions because ultimately they only end up affecting you in the long run. When you’re starting high school my tip is that during your freshman year you focus on your grades and making sure you get your work done and try to just get the hang of it.
Why is it that college is notoriously known for being the place where students are broke? If one stops to think about it, students live their whole life on free education thanks to the public school system. However, when the time comes to move to a further education institute, learners are being punished by gigantian fines and most are forced to do the only option: take out a loan. While these are bad enough and may trap honest students with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, it doesn’t have to be this way. Large universities should be the main target of blame for all college students alike. This is done by hiding useless fees we are forced to pay for in our tuition and overpricing campus named rights we should already have such as parking or printing.
Every summer since I can remember my family and I have spent part of our summer break camping at our favorite place in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in California. Clarks Fork is an old road with three campgrounds, one being called Clarks Fork. It’s where I have made endless memories with family and friends. It's where my best friend and I have grown up each summer. The first thing that is noticeable in (we will see when we look at) this picture is the two young girls, smiling big. Those two young girls in the picture are my sister and I. The one on the left with the long black hair, in two braids is my not so little, younger sister, and I am the blonde (one) on the right. This picture shows so much more than (you) anyone could ever guess. I have grown up at Clarks Fork. My sister and I have gone on endless hikes and fishing trips. We are fortunate we were able to grow up running around, for weeks at a time in such a beautiful place.
Hundreds of rescuers die per year because they are trying to save a person from a dangerous situation that they got themselves into. They try to save people that get themselves stuck in a burning building, people that are drowning because they got themselves stuck in the current of the ocean, or even people that are being reckless on and fall into the crevice of a mountain. Shouldn’t rescuers save themselves instead of paying the price of a careless act of a person? Rescuers put their lives in crisis to save people from dangerous situations when there isn’t even a 100% possibility of them being saved. Services should not be provided to people because climbers are old enough and responsible enough to know what they are getting into, rescue equipment isn’t always reliable, and because innocent rescuers are putting their lives at risk to save other people.
It is midnight, and while you are in a deep sleep dreaming about your family and the vacation you are going to take next month and you hear a loud beeping noise. You don’t fully wake up because you think it’s something in your dream. When you finally come to the realization that the loud noise is the fire alarm, you see your husband trying to put clothes on and you go to wake your kids and gather outside at your safe place. When you go to your child’s door you perceive that she is trapped around flames all around her bed which is where the fire originated. She is screaming “Mommy! Mommy help!”. You feel helpless as you try to open her bedroom door where she can’t get out and you can’t open it because it is stuck, but you know that if you do not do something quick, something bad is going to happen. As your husband takes your other children out to the safe place, firefighters rush in to take over and they take you away from your daughter’s bedroom door, but as that happens you latch on to her door because you can’t stand the thought of losing her. You scream “NO! NO! My daughter is in there!” But the fireman drags you out because you are losing oxygen. You sit down in front of your house in the grass sobbing because of the fact that you could lose your child. The paramedics are standing beside their trucks waiting to assist. You are looking at your childhood home as all your memories go up in flames. While this might be a one time thing for you and your family, this is a
