I couldn't open my locker. I couldn't open my locker that period until my homeroom teacher opened it for me. I can't tell you how stupid I felt when my Ms. Shores opened my locker in one try and I couldn't even open in like the 50 tries I did. When I went to P.E., they told us that we were not going to get our locker until we start to dress. I was really happy because I didn't need to deal with another locker problem for a couple of weeks.

Jung 1 Brian Jung Madrid English 1 5 September 2014 The First Day of High School The clock struck 6:30, I was lying in bed, and it was time to get up. I tumbled in my bed, while my emotions were going all over the place. Being that my mom was the one who woke me up, I waited in bed and closed my eyes as she came near my room to cover my anxiety.

I haven’t been on a long airplane ride in a long time, so I forgot what was so bad about jet lag. It was so frustrating, so I just gave up and watched TV and stayed up on the laptop that whole night.

“I don’t see any cars,’ Henry said, ‘so they must have rooms.’/ ‘When I want your opinion, I’ll ask for it.”(Dunn 70) In this quote, The Pollocks have just arrived at Netherbank. Henry merely makes a helpful comment and his mother immediately yells at him for speaking out of turn. This is important to the plot because it shows how much Henry’s parents overreact to his very normal-child-like behavior. This severe parenting problem also applies to Jing-mei Woo. “Of course, you can be a prodigy, too,’ my mother told me when I was nine.
