Throughout my first years It was difficult because I did not speak English. Being a shy kid was probably harder. I went to Juan Seguin Elementary School, were I think I learn a lot. Had extraordinary teachers and where I felt smarter. Getting commended in math and science both years I was there. Hartman Middle School was next, I had pretty good times and adventures. Academically I did really well, especially in math. Which has been my strongest subject. That helped me catch the principal 's attention and wanted me to transfer to the magnet program. Which I felt special for such an offer. But at the end, for certain circumstances i didn’t join the magnet program.
Chavez High School was probably the best decision I could’ve made. I was encouraged to do well in school and get excellent grades, and I accomplished it. My freshman year was my best year academically. I had the grades that I desired and without even knowing I started an outstanding GPA. While at the same time playing for the school’s soccer team. Which became the best experience in my life so far. Meet friends that now I consider them as my brothers. My sophomore year and junior year were pretty similar. Until the end of my junior year where I started realizing that I was about to ...

...ge would go to my high school classes and talk about college life. I honestly thought they were playing, trying to scare us to make us focus in school or whatever. Their stories about staying up late trying to finish their assignments, and about studying everyday, etc. In my mind I thought they were just exaggerating. But now that finally my time to be in college has come, i believe them. I have never seen this much work in my life. I 'm used to a simple worksheet for homework and continues reminders of the due dates of work. Simple one page essays, maximum two. Is like teaching someone how to drive for the first time and you make them get in the freeway. But I know I can do this and become one of the most prestigious engineers and making my family proud. My family is the biggest strength and my number one motivation to graduate and get my bachelors degree and more.

- Being A new kid is one of the most difficult things a kid will have to do in his or her childhood. I know this from personal experience of being a new kid. In high school I moved to three different schools in four years. It was extremely tough and at times I will feel so lonely, because high school students are harsh when it comes to a new kid coming into their school. They tend to be judgmental and have no desire to even speak to the new kid even if he or she is sitting all alone at the cafeteria table eating day old pizza with terrible tasting corn and a spoiled chocolate milk carton that has a missing girl on the side....

- It was a warm morning in October when I faced for the first time in my life how painful it would be being a shy person. There I was, nine years old, inside the classroom, right after my classmates and I had read a tale named “Malagueta Pepper John”. It featured the story of a kid who instantly blushed every time he was going through an embarrassing situation in his miserable life. The problem was that, on that morning, I had just gone through a kind of shameful experience too. Don't ask me what it was; I just know that minutes after it happened, a fellow student started calling me “Malagueta Pepper John” and everyone in that entire room of stone-hearted children followed his lead....

- New and exciting technologies have always played a huge role in the culture of American people. When the motion picture came out it was no surprise that both consumers and producers were more than happy to get in on the action. Back in the 1920’s film was still pretty new and was only in black and white with no sound, but the films were always accompanied by orchestral pieces to help set the mood. The art of movie-making has come a long way since then with the addition of not only color and audio, but new techniques and new ideas.... [tags: Kid, Iron Jawed Angels,]

- The Perception of Violence in Michael Ondaatje's The Collected Works of Billy the Kid A question that arises in almost any medium of art, be it music, film or literature, is whether or not the depiction of violence is merely gratuitous or whether it is a legitimate artistic expression. There can be no doubt that Michael Ondaatje's long poem The Collected Works of Billy the Kid is a violent work, but certain factors should be kept in mind before passing it off as an attempt to shock and titillate; certainly, the poem does both of these, but they are not the primary purpose of the work....

- It will never be known how much rejection can change a person’s life except when it is experienced firsthand. Many people feel lost, alone, and scared, simply because of being labeled as “different”. Misconceptions are made about everyone based on society’s views of what is thought of as “normal” and what is not. Misconceptions are made because people do not allow themselves enough time to form a proper judgment about a person. Society has grown harsh and criticizes everyone who expresses different characteristics and whose actions differ from the rest.... [tags: rejection, society, misconceptions, normal]

- Explanation: The story Under the Waves theme is about embracing what make you unique from everyone else. I believe it is important for children to understand that they should not give up their unique interests because of what others think. The story also teaches that it is okay to be different and not follow the group. Many times you have to venture off on your own to discover an exciting adventure. The story Under the Waves is also related to one of my other creative writing assignment The Shy Little Turtle.... [tags: Character, Novel]

- The Shy Girl Ever since I can remember, I was naturally quiet and shy. I constantly repeated myself because people could not hear me the first time. Even then, I seldom made eye contact with others. When I entered high school, nothing changed. Soon afterward, I disliked the way my classmates thought of me. If someone had to make an announcement in class, I was not chosen; my classmates believed I was not vocal enough. If someone threw a party, I was not invited because they thought "Shy girls" would not want to come.... [tags: Personal Narrative Writing]
