It was a hot summer day, birds chirping, kids playing outside, wind blowing. Katie and a few of her friends were over at her house. They were in the pool, swimming and relaxing.
“I can’t believe in just a few weeks we will be juniors!” Katie exclaimed.
“Ya,” Elaina said. “It seems like just yesterday I was in kindergarten.”
“You were,” Morgan said with a chuckle.
Morgan and Katie laughed.
Elaina replied, “Okay, me helping at that summer school doesn’t count Morgan.” The three friends laughed. “I meant that it seems like just recently that we started school, and now were juniors in high school! Next thing we know we’ll be old and wrinkly!”
“Elaina is right,” Katie thought to herself. “Time has flown by so fast. It seems like just yesterday I was eating my snack during snack time in preschool. I can’t believe in just a couple of years I’m going to be going to college!”
The day finally came; the first day of Katie’s junior year of high school. She was happy to be going back to school because she was going to see all ...

...ong. What’s her problem?”
Landon said, “I have no idea?”
The semester ended and Katie ended up with a C in Mrs. Griffen’s class. When she got her grade card for first half of the year, Katie just shook her head and rolled her eyes.
“I swear she probably just gave me a C because she didn’t like me,” Katie thought to herself. “I guess I’m kinda surprised she even gave me a C, but I did deserve an A.”
Katie got through her junior year; she did her best and got all As and Bs. She really enjoyed her Teaching Professions class her second semester. She liked her placement choice she made; she went to the middle school the whole semester. Katie liked it so much that she tells herself that she is definitely going to take Teaching Professions II and III her senior year.
Katie’s senior year came and gone so quickly. It’s just like they say “Time flies when you're having fun!”

- Our country prides itself with the freedoms it allows; we are the “land of the free” after all. Compared to other countries, we are indeed free. Freedoms of religion, press, assembly, petition, and speech are all guaranteed by the first amendment of the Constitution. However, these freedoms come at the cost of hidden restrictions and situations where we are more imprisoned than free.

- A Dream Within A Dream William Shakespeare presents his story of a midsummer night’s dream as a play. Within this play is another play named “Pyramus and Thisby“. The two similar stories share the same basic idea of how the course of true love never seems to run smoothly. Chaos seems to be normalcy in both of these stories, and although they seem vastly different, they share the same quality of blocked love and eventual serenity. These shared qualities of love show how the theme of “Pyramus and Thisby” relates to the main story of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The main plot of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is comprised of the confident, real love of Thesius and Hippolyta as the right-...
