- Reflecting Upon Remember the Titans Segregation between blacks and whites was a very tough problem to get over in our country (one that we have been struggling with for centuries), but I never realized that it was still around a few decades ago- in the 1970's. Today, most kids that I know of, including myself, are very comfortable having friends of a different race, but as I have found out from watching the movie, Remember the Titans, that was not the case a short time ago....   [tags: Papers]

She turned and headed down the stairs, crossing the street before jogging through the entrance. Her expanding lungs filled with cold air, filling her chest with a free feeling that only jogging on a cold day could bring. But with a determined mind she instantly shrugged off the experience and continued to jog through the twisting path....   [tags: worry, remember, practice, options]

Why I Don 't Remember Most Of It

- I try to put my past behind me, that’s probably why I don’t remember most of it. I do remember me growing up in Miami, Florida. A small, brown skin girl, with chubby cheeks, big eyes, and dimples. My father would make fun of me throughout the years, telling me that I bear a resemblance to a frog. At a young age I never did like school, I would hide under the desk, away from the kids while they were told to gather up in a circle. It got to the point where one day in 1st grade, I was told to get in a circle with the other kids in my class and I would not go because I did not feel I was smart enough to be there....   [tags: High school, Teacher, Elementary school, Pedagogy]

Review of A Day to Remember's Album Common Courtesy

- A Day to Remember- Common Courtesy Review After several lawsuits with Victory Records, A Day to Remember has finally released their fifth album, entitled Common Courtesy on October 8. This pop punk/post-hardcore band from Ocala, Florida has gained much popularity over the years because they have been able to blend metalcore elements with catchy pop punk melodies to make the songs supposedly sound more interesting and “hardcore”. Prior to Common Courtesy, the only ADTR album I have listened to was Homesick, and I thought that it was a decent album and somewhat enjoyable, although saturated with mundane breakdowns and cheesy lyrics....   [tags: pop punk, generic, lyrics]

I Remember Getting A 100 On A Math Quiz

- While in elementary school, I remember getting a 100 on a math quiz. As always, I walked home staring straight down at the ground—trouble was everyone around. However, this day I had more purpose than ever. I hoped to make it home before my father left for his night shift. He would be so proud of my 100. As he stood at the stove, I excitedly whipped my backpack down and waved the slip in my father’s face. “That’s it. How come you didn’t get a 110?” As a young child, that comment hurt deeply. Although I’d gotten a 110 on my last quiz, this one did not have extra credit and 110 was impossible....   [tags: Education, High school, Socioeconomic status]

A Slow Walk Into Inspiration

- On her essay "The Narrow Bridge of Art", Virginia Woolf discusses much more than the use of poetic prose in writing; she carefully portrays human beings as the core of the existence of writing. As she says, "Life is always and inevitably much richer than we who try to express it" (23). Writers seek for life as dogs for water; they take men and women of all kind as the one and only fountain of inspiration in which they bathe so as to write another work. Woolf's short story "Kew Gardens" is a vivid example of that kind of inspiration someone with the sense of hearing can find just by taking a walk in the park one afternoon....   [tags: European Literature]
