Some of the freshmen were simply so glad to be there that the mod didn't... ... middle of paper ... ... as a freshman and stared up at the brick edifice known as Kiper. It is incomprehensible that we have grown up so quickly and are about to leave forever. Never again will we all be in the same place in time. All good things must eventually end, but the wisdom, the friends and the experiences that have changed us will remain a part of us forever. It is unbelievable that the admission pass has expired and the gates are about to close.
My first year was a little bit better compared to elementary years, I was still in the program. The only time I would talk to "normal" students was in my P.E. class. At first I was scared to tell the older kids that I was in DSPS when they called for my classes. Once they found out I was scared they were going to bully me but to my surprise they didn't care and some of them were in it few years back.
I would say that we both had an amazing senior year together, we even shared a locker. But throughout the year I would say how I was so excited to graduate and go to college and Caleb would keep telling why would you be excited when our senior year is one of the best of our lives. And I understand that now, it truly was one of the best times of my life. Looking back at all of my years in high school I truly had the best of times. And most of those times were with Caleb.

The show is often written off as just a raunchy animated show, so people expect the outrageous humor and take the jokes less seriously. Racist jokes has been muddled with satire by putting it in a comical context and in a different medium such as animation. There needs to be a more defined line between what is satirical and what is racist because it has become easier to play off a racist remark as a joke. Continuing to accept the excuse of stereotypical characterizations as plain humor still contributes to the perpetuation of racist stereotypes. When Family Guy satirizes racial stereotypes it is taken as a lighthearted joke but the creators do not realize that it is still damaging to the reputation of those the show makes fun of.
While doing all this, he still made extra time to help me survive his Windows 2000 class since I hadn't taken the required prerequisites and was pretty lost. Mr.... ... middle of paper ... ...already talked about, and the ones that I did not get a change to mention, but I don't have time. Parents and people of the community, please see what great people these teachers are, and remember how much of their lives they give freely to their students. Teachers, whether you know it or not, you have affected each of us so much. The people that I have talked about are only teachers on my own list of important people at Amos High School.
When I tell my friend and coworker, Robert, that I cannot get drunk and play video games like we do every Thursday night, he decides to help me with this essay. So we brainstorm some ideas for a couple of hours. He comes up with a story from his experience in high school, which was tempting to use, but I ultimately decide that I need to do this myself. So we scrapped it and started over. After about another hour or so with nothing coming to mind, he sarcastically says to me “Glenn, you’re in over your head, you are too old, what a waste of time this has been.” I tell him “If you’re going to complain all night, you can just leave so I can get this done.” Robert claims to be a casualty of this essay, for instead of playing Playstation as we usually do in an alcohol induced coma, we’re sitting in front of the computer sighing in tandem.
But as uninterested as I was, I started to go deeper into my thoughts, nervously, I started worrying about my math AIMS since I didn’t pass that portion of the test last year. With just one test my whole High School career would be a flop, I need to pass all my classes with at least a D or better in order for that to be excused. I sighed in relief, trying to avoid getting too deep into the thought of not graduating, thinking I had everything planned relieved some stress and anxiety away. “Here”, getting interrupted in my thoughts, I saw my classmate handing back the final, it took me a minute to respond when I finally said “thank you” with a smile, taking the paper and placing it on my cold desk. Walking to the guidance counselor with a million thoughts in my head wasn’t exactly the feeling I was hoping for, the halls were empty, everyone was in class, and it was quite and peaceful.
Many high school teachers portrayed college as continuation of high school. So with that mentality, I was very much unprepared for college. “Compared with high school, you’ll have more to read, more to write, more problems to solve, and more to remember (ellis, 2011). High school teachers gave review sheets, and reviewed over material before any test was given. While “college instructors gave less guidance about how or when to study (ellis, 2011).
When I received my diploma from Elkin High School on the evening of June 12th, 2015, I soon realized this would be the best day of my life. Looking back, I would have never imagined how much hard work and effort led up to that night. Since the beginning of my senior year, I had set several goals I wanted to accomplish before graduation. Those goals included graduating with honors, being inducted into the National Technical Honor Society for the second year, being inducted into National Honor Society, and being inducted into the Music Honor Society. Another goal I had going into my senior year, I wanted to be able to do an internship in the Labor and Delivery department at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital.
