  • As I Walked Into The Lecture Hall, I Saw People Ranging From The Literary Communitys Elite To High School Students Taking My - 880 words
    As I walked into the lecture hall, I saw people ranging from the literary communitys elite to high school students. Taking my seat, the crowd hushed as a rather distinguished looking man walked to the podium. The man prepared his notes and I waited silently in awe of his presence, anticipating his words of wisdom. I knew this was a gentleman who knew what he was talking about that is, until he opened his mouth. My first impressions of Professor Dunne, a visiting literary critic, were torn to shreds over the few hours at Griffith Universitys lecture hall as I listened to him criticise Australian poetry. I was stunned to hear the comments of this man (who had graced our shores only a few hour ...

    Blanche, Stella's older sister, until recently a high school English teacher in Laurel, Mississippi. She arrives in New Orleans a loquacious, witty, arrogant, fragile, and ultimately crumbling figure. Blanche once was married to and passionately in love with a tortured young man.

  • Buddhismat A High School Level - 930 words
    Buddhism-At A High School Level Buddhism Buddhism, founded in the late 6th century BC by Siddhartha Gautama (the Buddha), is an important religion in most of the countries of Asia. Buddhism has come in many different forms, but in each form there has been an attempt to draw from the life experiences of the Buddha, his teachings, and the spirit or essence of his teachings (called dharma) as models for the religious life. However, before the writing of the Buaciha Charija (life of the Buddha) by Ashvaghosa in the 1st or 2nd century AD, the members did not have a complete record of his life. The Buddha was born in North India (appx. 570 BC) at a place called Lumbini, near the Himalayan Foothill ...

  • Differences Between High School And College - 435 words
    Differences Between High School And College I have noticed a few differences between high school and college. I spent all four years in high school, and graduated this past year. I have only spent a half of a semester in college, not giving me a full evaluation of college. In high school, you couldnt do that much as a freshman. You really didnt know what to expect coming from middle school, just that it was a new place to learn. Following the rules was a necessity. If you didnt get in good with a couple of teachers, the rest of your high school years could be treacherous. Although, if you could get through your freshman year, the other three are a breeze. During your sophomore through senior ...

  • High School - 1,329 words
    High School Before I started high school, elementary school teachers told me that no one cared about you at the high school. It was a different world and you had to do everything on your own. As I started my first semester, I was working with As and Bs, and great conduct. I learned a lot though. It was true; most teachers really didnt care about their students and followed a lesson plan that had been in repetitive use since the 70s. But that wasnt a problem. I like looking at things from all perspectives. If you know what your opposite is thinking then you know how to outsmart them. When you assume, you only realize that you didnt know anything and you just screw yourself more. Sitting in my ...

If you collapse at a C in class, or hide your grade from other people, or have so much work you get no time to yourself, you have been corrupted. If you can let school impact your life this much, you dont have one. Your life is created by a balance of things. School, family, friends, and yourself. When one goes bad you should be able to rely on a positive from another one of these groups. If you cant be happy with what you are, what your are capable of, and how good you can do something, then you will never be happy or satisfied with yourself. When teachers see that students ...

  • High School Vs College - 504 words
    High School Vs. College High School vs. College High school and college are very dissimilar. There are the main differences and then there are differences that aren't very distinct. These differences include homework, teacher-student relationships, and attendance policies. In this paper I will discuss the major and minor differences between high school and college. I will also explain why responsibility is a very important factor in high school and college. In high school most teachers will let you turn in your homework late if you give them an excuse such as, "I forgot it at home" or "It's in my locker." In college if you give your professor one of these excuses they will say, "Too bad." Th ...

  • How To Produce A High School Newspaper - 1,694 words
    How to produce a high school newspaper I sat nervously in front of the classroom while my hands shook uncontrollably. I sat and watched each member of my staff walk into the classroom one by one. Lumps formed in my throat as I tried to swallow them into my churning stomach. These were the chosen students who were going to depend on me, their editor-in-chief, for guidance and assistance. All of a sudden, a piercing ringing of the bell indicated that it was time for me to begin. I was the person in charge of nineteen fellow peers. I wasnt sure what to expect while hundreds of questions raced through my mind: What if they dont listen to me? What if Im not experienced enough? Can I just forget a ...

  • What Will You Be Like At Your High School Reunion - 665 words
    What will you be like at your high school reunion An automobile, a vibrant yellow sportscar, pulls up to the front of the school. Its mirrored windows reflect the faces of a large crowd, waiting breathlessly for the car door to open. A man steps out of the driver's side, dressed in a formal suit, with the roguish appeal and smile of James Bond, the famous 007 agent. He walks around the front of the car and helps his date get out. The two of them stride hand in hand towards the school as flashes go off and people point at them. As the beautiful couple enters the building, an old station wagon chugs its way through the parking lot. I get out, wearing a jacket and tie, and run toward the school ...

Welcome to the land where coffee beans reign and Vivarin rules. Welcome to college. Youve been here before. Sure you have Needful Things -Stephen King This may not be the case with everyone, but I know that when I was in high school, college was my ultimate dream. Unlike most of my peers, high school never held that special sentimental enchantment for me as it did for them. I didnt display any noticeable increase in school spirit during my final year out of respect for what would soon become my alma mater. For example, ...

    Working In High School Having a job in high school gives me an edge. As an employee, I have learned to interact with many different types of people, work together, and learn the value of a dollar. Being employed is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Participating in a job has offered me many opportunities to make friends, assume a leadership role, and take on responsibilities. Working has enabled me to become a more mature and well-rounded individual. Without a job, I would not be who I am today. When you are employed, you have to work every other day in order to make money, and it becomes apparent that you do not have all the time in the world to accomplish every day tasks ...
