Escape from the dirty streets and smelly buses. Escape from the loud traffic and annoying pedestrians. Escape to a place where all of this becomes void. Everyday, at around 5-9pm, I get the opportunity to redevelop this place. As I wait for the last class to exit studio 154, I lightly smile to myself, remembering that this beautiful room is mine for the next 4 hours.
Informative Speech Self-Reflection Student’s Name: Christian Mayola Date: 12/8/14 Section: Subject: Informative Speech “The Evolution of Popcorn” Organizational Pattern: Topical CONTENT AND ORGANIZATION Attention Getter: I opened up my informative speech with an illusion of walking into a movie theater and having the smell of popcorn first hit you. How the side butter being poured onto the popped popcorn left a smell that was like sent from heaven. I felt that this grabbed my audience. Reveal Topic: After my attention getter, I told my audience that I would be explaining to them about the history of popcorn Audience Adaptation: I told my audience that while many of you have already had this experience happened to you, this was my first experience at movie popcorn, literally; Credibility: I established credibility by using the cash register’s line in a sentence at the beginning of the speech. This showed the audience how this topic could relate to them because everybody has talked to a cashier before.
This made him feel accepted and he made new friends. In “Shame,” the boy goes through a bad experience. He was placed in the “idiot” desk located at the back of the classroom. He would make noises and poke people to try and draw attention to him. As the teacher was going around the room asking how much their fathers were donating for the Community Chest the teacher skipped over him.
to get settled in our dorms, get acquainted with our new roommates, and get our team shirts that we would have to wear everyday during the conference. When I arrived that morning I was so tired from packing all night, but I was surely awaken by the super loud and excited welcoming staff. I could tell that each and every one of them was so excited to be there and embark on that amazing journey with us. In the process of giving us our keys to our dorm and our shirts, the staff reminded us that we could not have our cell phones or any other electronic devices. This part was kind of devastating to most of us because like most teenagers we were all into our phones, IPods, and laptops.
Being 8th graders, we moaned and complained under our breath about having to stay an extra couple minutes. Coach Thomas pulled out a piece of paper from his back pocket and unfolded it. The gym immediately turned quiet, we knew he had something to say. He began to read us this poem, an unusual thing for a coach to do at a basketball practice. I was listening very closely to
I heard laughing and giggling as they all made fun of him, he was not afraid or embarrassed he simply shut the world out, one of his many talents. I watched as he sat down and cracked his knuckles and took a deep breathe. He surprised the whole school as he played the piece, “Johnny C. Badd”. I remember looking around feeling proud and full of happiness because my brother had showed everyone up, not only with teaching himself piano but being
In addition to this, the outline of the building is highlighted by a lot of lights and spotlights shining into the sky. As I get to the door, a valet greets me and says, “Hello, welcome to Mystic Lake and good luck” in a happy inflection. After being greeted, my girlfriend and I immediately went into the casino floor and began looking around. The first thing that hits me is the noise. Although for the most part it was pretty quiet, every once and a while the “silence” would be broken.
The way I showed this dedication was to research every problem item that came across the office; make sure each and one of the young Airmen were busy with their assigned responsibilities. In time I start to get worn out and fatigue at the end of the day. My social life involved boxing, swimming and spending time with friends. These events cease to exist after 4 months of overwhelming myself. I even noticed how different people from other shops came directly to me for help, it did not matter what I was doing at that time I was the go to guy.
The gym is where I go to relieve all my stress, clear my mind, and think happy thoughts. When I walk into the gym I get tunnel vision, meaning I see and hear no one. When it is just me in the gym I go to the middle of the court and just sit and think to myself. Either I am in the gym by myself, with my sister, my team, or hundreds of people. When I do not have my tunnel vision turned on it usually really loud with cheers, chants, and hand claps.
MISD has given their high school students only five short minutes to get to their next class. Therefore simple tasks like using the rest room and grabbing a couple of books from their locker can become a frantic struggle. Due to the new bell schedule students are not allowed to leave the class room the first and last twenty minutes of class, therefore only giving them a five minute period to use the restroom, if the teacher allows. Therefore during this five minute passing period students must go to the rest room, stop by their locker if needed and travel to their next class. Not to mention the flooded hallways due to everyone being released at the same time.
