I have made many friends including Cadet/Private Sommermeyer and Cadet/Private Tatum. These many friends extend beyond the JROTC classroom and will no doubt be there when I most need them to be. Another thing ROTC is good for is community service hours. My counselor has already given me a community service worksheet to fill out whenever I do something and she says it will help me get into a much better college and will also look good on my Job/college application. JROTC also inspires me to work hard in school and out of school.
However, not that many people think that school, sports, movies, and society would not be possible without agriculture. Agriculture was a crucial science that gave rise to the earliest of settlements and allowed humans to grow. Agriculture began around the same time in different areas around the world and with agriculture came the very start of modern civilization.

Amish Culture: Old Order System The Amish are a relatively young society dating back to only 1693 Europe. The Amish can now be found in Pennsylvania, Northeast Indiana, Missouri, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

In order to understand the Amish and their agricultural ways, it is first important to understand what exactly a mode of subsistence is.
Returning to school has been a dream of mines since I graduated from high school. The different job opportunity and having a better income to support me and my family would make me so happy. Quitting my job of 14 years motivated me to return to school to earn a degree. I want to have a stable and good paying job so that I can save for my son’s college as well. Jobs are hard to find these days, especially when they are seeking a High School diploma or a College degree of some sort.
many hunters and gatherers lived along the coastal plains of modern Syria and Israel and in the valleys and hills near the Zagros Mountains (Kreis 2013). Instead of constantly having to travel for food, they would find themselves staying in one region and start using what was around them. This was the beginning of civilization as we know it. Sumerian civilization was not just a civilization, but also a foundation for many civilizations that followed which adopted and implemented many of its developments and inventions (Kreis 2013).

Completely stunned by the first words coming out of this new, intimidating teacher, I was excited for an English class for the first time. Growing up I absolutely dreaded reading and writing. Literature as a whole was the bane of my existence. However, this teacher changed it all for me. Mr. Alessandri had us read Silence of the Lambs, Dune, and numerous short stories.
The Life of a Student-Athlete I always thought, I Michael Jordan was the smartest person in my middle school and high school class. I really didn’t have to work hard and was able to get good grades without putting forth a lot of effort. My personal saying was that if I do enough to get at least a passing grade I will be cool with it.
