“’Typhoid Fever’– Present Tense Childhood Memory.”

It is five in the morning when I hear someone in the house making a lot of noise. It is one of my brothers. He is a big hurry, he was on his way to work. I rolled out of bed to see what he is doing and I sat next to him. He is sitting on the couch, trying to tie his shoes. And me being the little six year old that I am went and got my shoes and put them on with him. He asked me if i was willing to race him, to see who could put our shoes on first. I didn't know how to tie my shoes that well so he let me win. He picked me up and place me with my mom in bed. He gave me a kissed me on my forehead and left.

Dragons' Den First Semester Week 13: Saturday

My favorite thing to do on a Saturday is to being back in LA and hanging out with my best friends. Being there makes me feel really good because it’s thee only place where I like to be and that’s makes me happy. I enjoy this because it is one of the best places I like to be at and it is where I spent the great days of my life. But sometimes it sucks because I know that I don’t live there anymore and I come back to this place and it just makes me feel like I have just wasted three years of my life here, when I could actually be doing something proactive and not messing everything up. Anyways, I do hope to do this again, and again, and again.

Academic Language Week 13 - Video Games

Violent video games do not contribute to youth violence. One reason is that just because kids play them doesn’t mean that are 100 PERCENT more likely to be come violent. So by INTERPRETING this evidence, people all over the world are INVOLVED in violence, so why does it matter if they play violent games or not. They are also still going to be the way that they are, aggressive or aren’t. Also, by playing them it’s probably helping them. Instead of being violent they can just take it out on video games. I rather have them play violent games then take it out of people. Beside most kids play violent games to escape anyways. Therefore violent games don’t contribute to kids acting out in violence.

    Dragons' Den First Semester Week 12: Veterans Day

    I would never ever enlist in the military. One reason is because I am afraid of dying and if I join I know for sure that I am going to see like a lot of dead people, and possible end up dead, I couldn’t deal with that. Also, I met a person who joined the military and he was never the same. He would hear a noise and he would get a flashback and start worrying because it reminded him of it. Another reason is that I couldn’t stand someone yelling at me for no reason and being ok with it. Lastly, I wouldn’t be able to say “yes sir” after every sentence that would really bother me. Therefore, I do not plan to enroll in the military.

    First Person Narrator: House Parent/Lead Staff Point of View

    As I walked into the house today, on this beautiful day, I thought that the young ladies in the house need to learn some etiquette. Then, I realized that I try my best to correct them when they curse or when they are disrespectful. But since they are kids, whatever you do to help them out and be more courteous, it won’t work because at the end of the day anything you say to them comes in one ear and out the other. Then again, they are just kids so they do what they want to do. Later I noticed that they are cool kids and I don’t blame them for knowing these things. I know that they all have been dragged all over the place and I get that. So, as I went off shift, I felt like the girls are pleasant to have around.

    Question of the Week - Week 11 of First Semester 2011-2012

    Student athletes should be required to have good grades in order to play sports. A lot of people love playing sports but they know that they have to have the grades for it. So those kids who like to play but probably can’t because of their bad grades, so this can bring them up.  It also motivates them and keeps up with their grades as well. Also, when kids play sports and have good grades it most likely keeps them out of trouble. Plus having a 2.0 isn’t that hard to get. So, In order to help student athletes, schools should leave it as is with the 2.0 GPA.
