One of the hardest things in the world is the lose of a loved one. After their death you have all these things running through your mind, regretting not being able to tell your loved one what they meant to you or how much you loved them. I’m one of those million citizens that wished they could of told what their loved ones meant. Some argue it’s too late to tell your loved one what they meant but when you carry them in your heart it’s never to late for them to listen to you.
I repeat this over and over again ” A special women. I will always adore and love with all my heart. For the short memorable times I had with you. A unique women. This priceless, I wish the world could of known you like I did. At times I feel it was not fair it happened to you. Why did it happen to you?I was so young we all were but yet again who is? As the years pass by, we appreciate why you had to. To keep us strong, to let us live with you in our hearts. To see your red roses grow and spread the seeds of our family red rose garden.Until this day I can not figure out why god had other plans for you? Now it’s time for me to confess I am sorry I have to write my misery and soul to you. I know you are looking down at me from the heavens above,” most citizens like my self wished we could of had that chance to tell our loved ones what they meant to us and that we will always have them in our hearts. It’s never to late to whisper or scream what our loved ones meant to us.
I am so excited for Thanksgiving! You may ask why is that well I have one word for you:FOOD!
Although Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday, I still look forward to it. I really love Thanksgiving because it is a great day to reunite with my family whom I haven’t really talked to in months and share a nice meal. I am dreaming of my uncle’s roasted chicken and baked ham. I look forward to my uncle’s bomb pumpkin pie and freshly baked biscuits.
Oh my god, I am such a food addict. Don’t get me wrong I still look forward to that 1 week of school vacation and Black Friday. I am also a shopaholic and I don’t mind waking up at 4 in the morning to buy some new shoes and my friend’s Christmas presents. I don’t really know anyone who does not look forward to Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and the sleep in week. I really need to sleep. Although I think that some people exaggerate by waking up at 2 in the afternoon, that is way too much.
I am hungry too. Just Yesterday I was telling my friend that I miss my uncle’s baked ham and now Thanksgiving is 2 and a half weeks away. I love the food but I hate my aunt’s tradition. Their tradition is to circle up and in order of oldest to youngest, we have to say what we are thankful for and I never know what to say. I also like Thanksgiving because it is the holiday before Christmas, which is my favorite holliday. I really love me some presents. I am hoping to get a new phone for Christmas so that is the reason my behavior is extra good now. My Christmas also evolves around food.
I also celebrate my Christmas with my aunts. This celebration starts with food since the morning. We go like at 8 in the morning where we enjoy a plate of menudo or tamales con champurado. Later in the day my family has like a potluck dinner where we each bring something. My mom makes aguachile and ceviche, my uncle makes the dessert, and my aunts make carne asada.
Man, I can’t wait for my food. Can you?
Supernatural season 9 premiered October 8 and it was a glorious day for all of the fans. I remember finishing the 8 previous seasons in the summer and I was left with a want for more. I felt bad for the other fans that had to wait much longer, but the wait is over!
Last season left everyone in shock and horror as (spoiler alert!) the angels fell from Heaven and crashed down on Earth. It also left the main characters, Sam and Dean Winchester, in a dire state as Sam was knocking on Death’s door (not literally…yet!), and the main antagonist, the devil, was chained up as he was slowly beginning to feel some guilt for the things he has done.
This new season opens up inside Sam’s mind as he is slowly dying in the real world. His brother, Dean gets desperate and asks for the angels assistance. However, the angels weren’t exactly pleased being mortal, so things hit the fan. After some help from a friendly angel, Sam is healthy. However, Dean must not tell Sam that the friendly angel is secretly inside near-dead brother as he slowly heals them both. And then there is Castiel, the angel who tried to save Heaven, but then ended up causing this huge calamity. Now, he is being hunted by every angel in the world.
The season struck fast, and it struck hard. While Sam has been know to be near death on several occasions, this was the first time where he was actually accepting it instead of fighting it. He only survived by being tricked. This left me, and no doubt other fans, in worry of what would he choose if he is faced with the same decision again. Then there is the angel who is helping the brothers, Ezikiel may be evil and biding his time to kill the brothers. And then there is Castiel, or Cassy, as he wanders on the planet, powerless and having very little knowledge on human interaction. Now, we fans must sit and wait for what would no doubt be another nail biting conclusion with the army of vengeful everything.
The wonders of magic.
This simple two word question can cause much controversy in many areas whether it be academic or childish. What if? This question arises from curiosity because we all want to know how things work and we are not all satisfied with the answers that are given. I understand that these answers are given to us by scientists and men and women that have thoroughly researched a variety of topics. There are so many what ifs but there are many more when we talk about things that seem out of this world.
There are many books, series, magazines, and everything else you can imagine that talk about magic and other sci-fi topics. The topic that interests me more is the topic of magic. Magic is a touchy subject because as children are fascinated by the thought that there are things that some people are able to do that others are not. Magic is fascinating because it practically means that we are able to do many things. In movies we see that magic can be used to pull pranks on others, for good and bad purposes, or just to use whenever it may come in handy. One very well known person to have magic or powers if you will, is the great Harry Potter. He defies his adversities at every turn with these powers. Potter learns how to use these powers to defeat his enemy but this was an extreme case but what if magic really did exist?
Would the population know that there is such a thing a magic? Would they ever know if it turns out to be true? There are many what ifs. If there was such a thing as magic, what would I do with it. Having this magic would be great enough but how would I know how to use it or even handle it. The cliche question that arises is: will it be used for good or bad.
Well, I would not necessarily use it for bad purposes. I would question on whether to use it at all. I would be freaked out on the fact that I have something unknown that I cannot control. Knowing that there is such a thing as magic would be fine enough for me. It would be exciting to know that one of those great impossible, fiction things like magic or superpowers was real.
The white house, an example of greek and roman architecture.
When the United States was founded it was founded on the dream that it would one day become a great nation. Thus the architecture of the important places where an important matter. Greek and Roman architecture can easily be observed as one of the most popular forms of architecture. It gives of a sense of grandeur and elegance. The Greeks and roman had beautiful temples dedicated to the gods and goddesses and thus many of the important places with “power”, like the white house for example has features that where taken from Greek and roman architecture, include greek and roman architecture. The marble columns are well known as belonging to the Greek and roman as they give a sense of elegance.
The Greeks and Romans architecture are not the only things that have spilled into our culture and our society. Some days of the week are named after Gods and Goddesses from ancient mythology. Some of the Months of the year are also named after Gods. January named after Janus, the Roman God of gates and doors, new beginnings and endings. March is so called as its named after Mars the Roman God of war. May the month may have been named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman goddess of fertility. June after the Roman goddess Juno, wife of Jupiter and equivalent to the Greek goddess Hera. Our planets are named after roman gods and so are some brands of cars.
There are many symbols and names taken from the Greeks and Romans that used in everyday life which we don’t notice. If you look closely you can observe other ways that Greeks and Romans spilled into our lives and you can observe how other cultures have influenced our daily lives and our beliefs.
Martha Speaks starts at 9:00 pm, Clifford starts at 9:30 pm, Sesame Street starts at 10:00 pm, Curious George starts at 3:00 pm, and Maya & Miguel starts at 5:30 am. What am I talking about? These are some of the shows that PBS provides for their viewers. I am one of their viewers. I have been watching PBS practically all my life.
I am seventeen years old, and yes I still watch PBS. I do not know why, probably because it is entertaining. I feel like a little girl, but hey who said that these show were only for little kids?
It sounds a bit ridiculous that I at least watch two to three shows a day. I do not care what people say, I am actually proud I watch PBS. I guess I do not want to let go of these childhood memories especially not these shows.
But what is so different from Disney Channel and PBS? Nothing. Except maybe the shows but, besides that nothing else; they are both alike and personally I think that PBS is better than Disney Channel. Wow does this sound like I’m dumb? (I’m not dumb).
It is not gibberish. It is hashtag real talk. The point to this is that never be embarrassed to confront what you like watching. If you like watching racing cars then good for you. If you like watching those magic bullet paid programs then damn good for you.
As more and more time passes, the ending of high school draws nearer. I really start to remember the different people that my class started off with and the people we gradually lost over the years. It always seems a bit strange to look around yourself and reminisce about your high school years while you are still in high school, as the title states it makes me feel older than what I actually am. In my case walking through the halls of the R-building is like staring directly at a blur of memories. It seems to stereotypical to mention, almost as if it is out of a teen movie, but it happens at the most random times.
When I hang out with my friends I wonder what made me sit next to them in the first place. And then I remember. “Oh yeah. It doesn’t really matter who I hang out with long as I am around people that I can have a fun time around.”
As much as I’d hate to say it, although many high schoolers do not want to think of their years at their high school, as stereotypical, it returns to the same basic blob of words: friends, family, socializing and “drama.” Every person will have their share of each but I what really matters is whether or not you go out with a “bang.” Whenever I ask people what their initial impressions of high school would be many people told me that they would think high school would be something around the lines of High School Musical. Going out in a “bang” may not be in the form of graduating the top of your class or being prom queen or king, but as long as you enjoy one thing about your four years in high school then you will be good.
It would suck to yes have a stereotypical view of yourself, but there are so many people out there that are in you age group that some stories are bound to overlap. The point is do not care about whether or not you are different every person is bound to be different, worry about YOU, and in the words of my friend: “Just do you.”
Getting into a four year university will help me to be able to payback my parents for all that they have done for me over the years.
And how they are still doing, paying for things that I don’t necessarily need but want. Even now when my mother says she needs something but can’t afford to buy it or when she spends a portion of her check in order to buy me a dress so that I can have a good night with my best friend.
I want to be able to provide for them. To be able to do all that I want, I first need to be able to go to college and get a degree in my chosen field. So post high school education is very important to me. It is the path I must take in order to move forward with my life and take care of my family.
This is what post High School Education means to me. Just because as a child I never knew what I wanted to be doesn’t mean that is the case now.
Never staying on one possible future may have been a good thing after all. I just wanted to be something. Anything, just to feel like I had a purpose. And since I never had just one thing on my mind but many then I like to I have a very broad future ahead of me.
I want to make the most that I can out of all the time I have left in high school. I want to have fun and be a child before I thrust myself out into the world as an adult.
Growing up my parents had done the best that they could. Have tried to give my brother and I everything that they did not have. But as I grew into my teens I learned a lot of my parents and all that they did. Being dependent is something that I want to be.
This all that it means to me. I want to be able to do all that I can. I will be on my own soon.
I have been watching a show on Netflix that has taken up most of my time and sleep. I am half way done with the second season, but I can already assure that Once Upon a Time, consisting of fairy tales from Disney and other folk tales like Little Red Riding Hood, is the show to watch when you’re in any mood.
Instead of doing my homework, I stay up watching this show. I really like it because it makes me feel like I am part of it. I feel like I am actually there and that I know the characters. The feeling of enchantment i receive from the series juxtaposes the enchantment that is presented throughout the episodes.
The way the stories are told about each characters are captivating and keeps my jaw wide open. It also keeps my heart beating as fast as it would take a cheetah to attack. It has passion, love, and even drama, with evil and good fighting its way to victory.
After listening to a conversation between two girls in class I began to wonder what influences our thoughts. Why do we act the way society tells us to?
Society says that I am a Mexican-American 18 year old living in East LA and therefore should be pregnant by now. Through magazines and the media, society also says that my glasses should be changed to contacts and if I don’t look like Megan Fox I’m not pretty.
Why is it that many young girls now and days are so easy to give in and be who society says they should be? What has brought us to believe that having a boyfriend is necessary and learning is optional? Many people blame our parents for our actions and that may be a factor but is it the complete reason or could society be the influence of all this?
A lot of what we see influence what we think is ‘cool’ and what we have to become. If a girl with a troubled home sees Lana Del Rey escaping in drugs, sex, and the ‘fast life’ in a music video, could it not cause her to believe that she can, too, escape?
