Pi was very involved with religion, and he tried to portray religion in every part of his life. Pi also had lots of education; even though he had a rough couple of years in school, he turned out to be a very smart and productive member of society. Pi’s father played a major role in Pi’s life; he prepared him for the real world and gave him important lessons that were crucial to Pi’s survival on the lifeboat. Lastly, Yann Martel stressed the importance of cognitive dissonance on Pi as a way to cope with the death of his family and all of the bad memories he had with the chef on the lifeboat. In conclusion, this shows how all parts of this book tie together to build the philosophy, that you should live a life with faith.
But that is exactly the problem-it has made me confront feelings that I have tried to ignore and had kept hidden for a very long time. I close my eyes and the memories flood my head, threatening to haunt me. I am the "scholarship boy" to a certain limit (Rodriguez 622). 1 am an excellent student. Always successful, always confident.
But when we stand on our feet and decide a way to overcome them, we begin to feel at peace with ourselves. We could see one of the characters in the Novel "The Kite Runner” who tries to overcome the guilt that had haunted him throughout his life, had made him to seek for redemption and forgiveness after ruining and betraying the lives of people who stood up for him in time of need.

My Buddha Pendant When students who study abroad leave their own countries, I think their parents sould give them something important. The thing my parents gave me is a jade pendent, the appearance is a Buddha. As a type of faith in China, the Buddha always stands for wisdom, cheerfulness, calmness, and all wonderful moralities. So my parents hope all of those good things accompany with me in my future. For me, the most significant things that I learned from my Buddha pendant are thankfulness for life and courage to face any severe difficulties.
Research does not show that this is the case; in his Annual Report 2011/2012, Sir Michael Wilshaw stressed that... ... middle of paper ... ...How can a deprived school compete against such obvious advantages? The painful truth is that, though we can argue that some schools have more challenging circumstances than others, it is harder to dispute the desirability of Ofsted’s vision of Outstanding: ‘Pupils make rapid and sustained progress throughout year groups across many subjects, including English and mathematics, and learn exceptionally well.’ We know that schools in deprived areas can be and are often successful. As leaders we need to strive for our schools to meet this standard, whatever its circumstances. Education is the only way out for most families caught in a cycle of deprivation. It could even be argued that challenging schools need to be better than their counterparts in more affluent areas.

Academics are one of the most profoundly weighted responsibilities a teenage student is expected to handle and are also the top of the list when it comes to identifying the causes of stress at a young age, says Miller. As a student myself, I feel very strongly about doing well in my studies in both my dual credit courses, as well as the required subjects in my public high school. All electives of mine are weighted grades and academic based in order to retain and improve my current GPA.

Even though the definition of “success” has a very nuanced meaning depending on its culture and context, highly successful people typically exhibit the same universal characteristics. For despite common belief, successful people are not affiliated with some exclusive club and it has to do more with attitude than superior I.Q intelligence. Therefore, many people have the ability to learn about how they can be successful and do better than they are now. Due to having the privilege of interacting with successful people on a daily basis, I gradually coined my own theory of success. In addition, interviewing successful college students for the basis of the EPE course project has managed to further support and strengthen my theory.
Despite the fact that regular warnings are part of California living, repeated in schools, in earthquake exercises, by local and state governments, and even in the front of telephone books, many people were caught off-guard and panicked. Fortunately, Californians learned a lot from the Whittier quake. The Whittier earthquake was not the "big one" that Angelenos perpetually wait for. This may be hard to comprehend given the extensive damage caused by the earthquake. Although classified as "moderate," the quake left more than 100 injured and six dead, including an electrical repairman buried in an underground tunnel, a college student struck by falling concrete in a campus garage, and three people who died of heart attacks brought on by the shock.
