I still remember my first day of sixth grade as clear as a shiny icicle on a cold, windy and bitter winter day. I attended Wood Intermediate which was just the right sized school for me to feel comfortable at. The hallways were small, tight, and never failed to be overcrowded. Students would end up pushing, shoving, and stepping on each other’s shoes without apologizing. I could already tell on my first day this school was going to be bad news. My gut feeling became true in a split second, when in reality I was hoping for it to be false. My harassment and bullying started from the moment I walked into my first class until I stepped out of my last one at the end of the day. In my Computer and Industrial Tech class I had my first experience with bullying. Before, the school year started I showed little to no interest I would enjoy this class at all and nothing was going to change my opinion. The classroom contained two computers on every table for group work and for when Mr. Bunch assigned lab days. There were circular mirrors on the corner walls which I found to be strange.

...gift from heaven.” Those exact words are a constant reminder to stay motivated no matter what hurdles I stumble across.
I want people to rise above bullying, wipe off your hands, shake it off and then stand. One of my favorite quotes I find an inspiration is this, “it’s going to get harder before it gets easier.

I look at this quote daily on my phone, to help me push and tackle through good and bad days. Deep down I know for a fact, any human being can be successful bullied or not. Believe in yourself, regardless of the situation and try to think positive. Life is full of unexpected outcomes but the only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.

- Always Be Closing Preceding the Play, David Mamet includes the phrase "Always Be Closing," and he titles it a "Practical Sales Maxim." In this essay, I will discuss how this philosophy not only applied to the sales attempts of the characters, but how it encompassed their entire approach to life. In the first dialogue of the play, Shelly Levene is speaking to John Williamson. He tells John, "All I am saying, that your wasting leads…All that I'm saying, things get set, I know they do, you get a mindset…A guy gets a reputation…All I'm saying, put a closer on the job…wait a second, put a proven man on the job."

- Loneliness is one of the most desolate emotions a human can feel; to feel alone means to be alone, at least most of the time. However, emotions are fickle and tend to stray away from the textbook definitions that humans have assigned them, instead choosing to become more complex. The complexity of emotions creates a multitude of interpretations, allowing each to become individualized with the human experiencing them. Writers have often taken advantage of the complexity of emotions and attempted to display them through their words, poems, and stories.... [tags: Soriting Laundry, Death of a Salesman]

- Do you ever feel like you are different or like you do not fit into society. I have never felt like I was normal. I have always been different and will always be. Maybe this is because I have crutches and I cannot walk like other people or because I have dealt with experiences that have made me grow up faster than the typical college student. I could go all day talking about rite of passages that are considered normal, but I am not normal and never will be. So, why should I try to be normal. I could talk about: graduating from high school, attending a funeral, being bullied, driving for the first time by myself, my first love, going to college, or turning eighteen and embarking on adulthood...

- Do you ever feel like you can change your own life with the decisions you make. I believe that every little decision you make in your life affects you in some way. You can just wake up one morning and decide that you want to change something, and just like that, you change it. That’s how it was for me, I woke up one morning and I wasn’t happy anymore with a sport I once loved. Basketball, my first love, it just didn’t make me happy anymore. Maybe Coach Brummell had ruined it for me, maybe I just lost that spark to play, or maybe it’s that I put too much stress on myself.... [tags: 2007 singles, 2008 singles]

- The film, Ever After is an adaptation of the Brother’s Grimm fairy tale adaptation, “Aschenputtle.” This film reflects a feminist attitude on the traditional view of the “damsel in distress” character which is present in the Grimm’s adaptation. Unlike Aschenputtle from the Grimm’s tale, the protagonist from the film, whose name is Danielle, does not hold true to the stereotype that all women should be well mannered and well behaved at all times. Additionally, Danielle is a more independent character with a stronger voice, as opposed to Aschenputtle who really does not speak up for herself.... [tags: Aschenputtle, Ever After]
