Graduations can be seen as the end of a stage and as a beginning of another. As we look back we can still remember our first day of school. We have grown, become more independent, matured, and learned. We are becoming young adults and have to learn the responsibilities this carries.
Graduation has many meanings for it; however one way to look at graduation would be the transition from youth to maturity. Graduation in another point of view could be the transition from one chapter of someone’s life to another. Most people would consider their childhood the best time of their lives. Some could also recall a part of their life that was a new chapter for them, or that it changed their life in one way or another. The journey from youth to maturity however, is ruthless, inconsistent, and can be a good time for some; others, not so much. Poems such as “To an Athlete Dying Young,” or “An Ex-Basketball Player” and award winning movies like “Holes” and “High School Musical: Senior Year” all relate to the celebration called graduation
The transition period refers to the time between the end of the presidential election in November and the inauguration of the new president on January 20th. During this time the president will elect 4,000 new government personal, new cabinet members and government department and agency heads, including 1,100 people that need to be approved by the senate. The transition team's job is to make sure the new president has a smooth transition, and also knowing who the best personal would be for each government job relating to what's going on the in the world today. Trump's Transition team is led by vice president-elect Mike Pence, and it has six vice-chairs with Chris Christie, Ben Carson, Newt Gingrich, Michael Flynn, Rudy Giuliani, and
There's much to learn from yourself,your family, and individuals around you. Learn from experiences, mistakes, and others, but view what you learn in a positive viewpoint to receive positive results. My freshman year, the start of my high school career, it wasn't the best year for me at all. I struggled because I wanted to be surrounded by my so-called friends, who were a negative set of individuals. I got off the crowded bus and was going to the park every day to be with them. They weren't the best set of individuals for me to be around. Being around them seemed fun, but it was really negative because I didn't study, do homework, or perform like I was capable of. My family always worried about me because I wasn't home often and didn't present my grades to them. I had to come to a
I learned two lessons that I will always remember. One was to always stay close by your parents no matter what, because when they die you will somehow miss them and at that moment you will forgive them for everything they did to you that negatively affected you in a certain way.
In one of my class at high school, I knew a guy that had studied in that class for few years but he couldn’t pass. That class was about improving reading, writing, and listening skills in English. He was also an immigrant like anybody else in the class. It wasn’t that bad for him because everybody had the same problems that they encountered. The graduation day was so significant that I felt really happy when walking on the street that I walked for one and a half year. The street didn’t seem that long like normal and I started missing the classes that I had taken. Although it was a tough period to go through, it gave you a feeling of victory of winning a battle. One and a half year aren’t long compared to four years in university, but it certainly contains more feelings and memory than the longer period. The day I graduated from high school, I felt more confident and ready for new challenge compared to the first day of a high school class. My parents were also present in
I went on a community service trip last spring that changed my life for the better. My eyes were opened to new ways to serve others. I think it is extremely important to put other above yourself.
Life lessons have been told through epics, short stories and fairy tales. The story of Beowulf is a great example because even though it has been translated people are able to pull different lessons from it and direct them to something they enjoy. To show how the life lessons can apply to different things I’ll be use hockey as a reference. The five life lessons are a leaders have to prove themself, learn what you are willing to give up, how to be brave, humility and loyalty.
I think the one thing that I really learned is that not everyone sticks around. I thought going into high school that i’d have the same friends the entire time, that these were my best friends; again, I was wrong. Some of my friends moved away, others we grew apart, and a couple are still around. My best friend of nine years moved away last year and that was kinda difficult, but she still makes time when she can. The people that I grew apart from ended up going down a path that I didn’t want to be apart of. Losing people can be pretty difficult, but I learned that the only person that is truly there for me, is me.
I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles four things: a rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that, regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life.” I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands.
Our graduation is our coming of age, our right of passage. As we walk across this stage we are writing the closing pages to our Chapter I and heading into the great unknown. It's kinda scary -- but hey, don't you cry, even though high school is over, the times we've shared and the friends we've made will never be lost. The clock is ticking, time is fleeting and nobody lives forever. But true friendship is something we can count on never dying. I hope wherever we go in life it will be happy and even if we all move to remote island countries we can all count on the memories and laugh at all the stupid things we did.
Graduation is an exciting time in a person’s life, especially a high school graduation. When I think of family and friends gathering together to celebrate a joyous occasion, I feel I accomplished my strongest goal. It never occurred to me that graduation would be the end of my youth and the start of adulthood. Graduating from high school was an influential event that gave me an altered outlook on my existence. Life before graduation, preparing for graduation day, and commencement day overwhelmed me for reality.
Many people have experienced the over whelming excitement that you feel as you approach high school graduation day, and for me, that’s a day that I will never forget. The amount of emotions that you feel on graduation day is unbelievable, and I have yet to experience anything else like it. I can remember feeling anxious to celebrate the big day with my friends and family, while at the same time I was panicking thinking about having to walk across the stage in front of that many people. Then, the more I thought about the reality of graduation day, I started to get curious, but nervous, about being able to start a new chapter in my life once graduation day had passed. There are several reasons why I, still
What I didn’t learn from my highschool class is how to properly set goals. I didn’t know that there was a process and I didn’t realize how helpful it is writing down goals and physically seeing them. I was able to learn S.M.A.R.T goals which helps you structure your goals to a achievable standard. I also learned the different types of goals like long term, short term, and immediate. I learn how important goal setting can be and how it helps you better achieve them.
In conclusion, life lessons are so important to have in life. The morals that I have allow me overcome obstacles in my life. Three of the main life lessons that will stick with me for the rest of my life are to always be honest,
