HIS/135 Week 4 1960 Diary Entry October 1, 1962 I am so excited, I am in enrolling for my classes at Ole Miss. Today. I am nervous, scared, and excited all at the same time as anyone would that was going off to college for the first time. I am going to be the first in my family to actually attend college and I am proud of myself, and my family is proud of me as well. I am determined to work hard and graduate maybe even with honors that I can sure that I am making a better life for myself as well as for my family.
Tryouts began after school on a beautiful Monday afternoon. Instantly, I realized the skill of this team was way above what I had been accustomed to. For the first time, I began to feel unsure of my talent. The list was posted every morning following try outs. Every day I woke up and rushed to school with the anticipation that my name would not be there.
I thought that I would make friends right away and do well in school, but I did not. People were not only very judgmental but they would bully me for being different. At the age of nine or ten I could not understand why they hated me so much. There were many times where I would come home to my family crying my eyes out. It has taken me years to make good friends, but now that I have them I feel ambitious and more motivated.
Liz Gomez English 101 Mr. Tafarella 3/9/11 On Monday of last week I woke up with the biggest headache ever and believe me I was not ready to go to class but I really didn’t want to miss the video that Mr. Tafarella was going to show us, so I got up, got ready and decided I had nothing to lose and I went to class. Once at school we had a lot of trouble trying to get the video to work and finally there it was; the most interesting subject I could have ever come across “Jonestown” To tell you the truth at first I was a little bit confused because I had never heard of this story, but once the documentary got going I was not able to take my eyes off of it. After the documentary ended I realized I wanted to know even more. I mean, I couldn’t
My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back. My senior year I transferred to Christ Missionary and Industrial high school (college) the year flew by but I really enjoyed myself there. Now I am still here at CM&I , I supposed to be a summer graduate if everything goes as planned. Once I finish high school I plan on signing up for the air
All my life, I've been great in school; I've always been a leader, almost always the first in my class...until now. I don't know what got into me. I'm so angry at myself; I knew I should have studied harder. Ever since I was a little girl, I've dreamt of delivering my Valedictorian speech at Graduation...just like Mom, just like you, just like most of my cousins...now, my shot at being Valedictorian is pretty much over. I feel awful; I feel like I've disappointed everyone, including myself...Why didn't I try harder, I should have paid more attention to my grades.
Capitan Mark Kelly Ever since I was a young girl I have always had great dreams and high expectations for myself. Anytime I was asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I would quickly reply” a lawyer” As the years went by I still had that goal in mind, but I began to realize that I was not exactly Ivy League material. Though I did work really hard in my classes, I was still at best average. During my junior year I took my SAT’s, and cried when I got my scores back. For many years I was scared to go to college because I thought I wasn’t college material.
AP Psychology Summer Assignment Our major goal in AP Psychology is, obviously, to pass the AP exam in May. So, all our efforts Will be directed toward that end. Because of the breadth of the curriculum to be tested, it is almost impossible to cover it all before May. So over the summer, we will get a jump on the curriculum. Summer Activities Activity 1: Famous contributors to Psychology (see attached paper for directions) Students will have a test over psychologists on the first Friday of school (August 23) Bring completed assignment to class on August 19.
The first year you can try out to play for the high school team. I always knew I wanted to play for the high school, so when tryouts began I was extremely nervous. My nerves were magnified by the fact that I did not know a single person there. On the first day of practice, we practiced throwing and hitting so that the coaches could make first round cuts. I remember walking up to the bulletin board after that first day with my hands shaking.
I think the CAHSEE is out of the question, there's already other tests in the end of year to make sure we're learning. When I first heard of the CAHSEE test, I didn't take it as seriously. I didn't believe that my high school career depended all on a test. I know my cousin took prep classes which she didn't take so serious but ended up passing, in her first try. She is pretty smart and she says it was easy just some questions were
