Selected Option 1

Throughout part 1 of Zeitoun, the writer uses the writing technique of shifting time and place to express some ideas of this book and also, he covers the points of the two main characters by the flashbacks in some ways . It impacts the further story with the plots and influence the understanding of Zeitoun and Kathy's mysterious relationship. It makes reader feel unusual and curious about characters. The description of their live ways are not as the normal couples do, the views of regrading things are not the same thinking ways as people imagine in the first part, the conflict is elaborated by flashback exactly.

My 4th Year High School Life, Different from the Others

...My 4th year High School Life, Different from Others Alyssa Bea Tanda, IV-Br. Flavius High school life is really fun. There are so many happenings in your life that you will never forget, so many things that had changed your life. For me there are many things in my life that changed a lot in me but I can say that the one that had changed me the most is my being a 4th year high school student. I don’t know why, but I really learned a lot in this part of my life. There are also some good effects of me being a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year high school student, but being a fourth year student is really different. It’s different from my other past experiences. The first day of 4th year came and I found out that my section is Br. Flavius, wherein my classmates were also my classmates when I was in 3rd year. At first I had thought of transferring to other section, because I want something new and I want to have new friends with other people. But then I had a realization that I can’t afford to be away from my friends. I also thought that it is God’s will that I am part of that section, so there is a purpose why I belong here. One of the main reasons why I decided not to transfer to other section is because I learned that the adviser of our section is Mr. Joseph Consignado.

Heart and Mind to Life and School

...Heart and Mind to Life and School Personal responsibility may be defined in variety of ways depending on one’s lifestyle. In my case, personal responsibility is defined through the accomplishment of a loving family, foundation of a solid work environment, and generation of positive results in school. It is always difficult to start a new milestone in life, especially during the time when one has become a husband, a new father, and an entrepreneur. It is more challenging to transition to the school schedule which requires self-discipline, motivation, and dedication. Family, friends and spouse play a major role in one’s life when an individual decides to take a big step in achieving an educational goal. Dedication is the most common goal when comparing personal responsibility to college success. In both cases, one should devote their effort, energy and drive to accomplish the most possible. In addition, an individual who shows great enthusiasm when setting new goals would also attempt to create a preliminary plan to accomplish them. My preliminary plan to practice personal responsibility in my education is the following: 1. Establishing a network of new and existing friends with similar goals and responsibilities 2. Involving my spouse to fully support the objectives and duties set forth by the latter creating a stress-free environment, providing ideas, and proof reading some term papers, if needed 3. Creating a self-disciplined environment in which I can be......

...challenging in my life.  I did very well and excelled in my classes at an early age, but during the transition into high school things took a turn.  My mom owned her own restaurant and it took up most of her time, and in turn, I pretty much didn’t get the proper guidance.  We moved around a lot and I didn’t have any type of stability.  She was a single parent and I was a child that demanded attention.  It got to the point where I didn’t bother to do much of my school work and eventually started acting out by under-performing academically.  By sophomore year I came to realize that I needed to take control of my life and take action to fix the mess that I had created.  Problems at home continued to persist, while I began to strive towards a more beneficial lifestyle. I realized that I wanted more out of life and that if I was ever to get anywhere I had to take full control now. My first course of action was speaking with my counselor to weigh out my options. Basically, in order for me to graduate with my class and on time, I needed to go through a home studies program.  This would allow to me to make up for lost time and complete all of my assignments on time to meet the graduating credits. Although getting back into doing school work was a little challenging for me, I continued to stick through finishing my responsibilities. Eventually, I decided to move out and live a life on my own by junior year, which made my journey even more difficult. Trying to finish school and......

Life Quality Factors Primary School Setting

...Applying life quality factors Stimulation Moorcroft Primary School promotes stimulation (psychological life quality factor) in many different ways, both in and outside the lessons. Without stimulation in a school environment pupils may feel bored. This school promotes stimulation by providing and assisting with different extra-curricular activities. There are a wide range of extra-curricular activities for the children to join for example the after-schools club. This is when the children play a different activity each week and have a variety of toys to play with, as well as there are construction blocks and a cooking/baking session each week. If the child does not want to participate in theses activities there are quieter alternatives. An example of how Moorcroft promotes stimulation in lessons is how the teachers include different events and activities in maths lessons. One of the most popular activities the children play in maths is “catch me if you can”. This is where all the children have a number up to 25 on their back. One child starts with the teacher and gets given a sum they then have to run around after everyone until the can catch the other child with the answer on their back, this child then has to come to the teacher and gets a different sum. The game is over after everyone has been “catcher”. Depending on the ability of the group this can be made more challenging by timing each child how long it takes them to catch the answer. In lessons work is set to......

The School

...Life and Death Shapes Values Donald Barthelme symbolizes the events of death, in an elementary school environment, to depict the values of responsibility that the children lose and gain. The deaths ranging from an insignificant snake or a rat, up to more significant people like their peers, slowly shapes how these children react to the idea of being responsible as a class. When the recurring incidents of death happens to more significant people in their lives, it also starts shaping their individual responsibilities of helping others in order to prevent further catastrophic incidents. Then the epiphanic deaths of their own classmates dying made them question whether being responsible was the right thing to believe in. As their mentor, the narrator then prevents the lost of these important values of being responsible as a part of growing up. He demonstrates that though death is inevitable, they have to focus on the brighter side of life. In “The School” by Donald Barthelme, the recurrences of the deaths that the children either speculated or were held accountable for, represent their developing sense of responsibility in terms of life and death; that being responsible and taking care of things is an important fundamental aspect of living, as does living optimistically with the ability to oversee the fear of death. The deaths throughout the story could be interpreted as the symbolization of the childrens' growing sense of responsibility. The beginning deaths of the snakes......

...colleges. The tuition rate has also “been rising at about 6 percent a year for most of the past ten years” (S. Chan and Kim Chan). This percent inevitably makes it harder for students to find an affordable college. High tuition prices also keep some people from attending their dream college. All of these changes have an effect on the students and the rising tuition prices. Another result of the different states being in debt is that they are giving colleges less financial help. “Prior to the 1980s, most public universities received upwards of 70 percent of their operating budgets from their respective states. Now most receive less than 50 percent” (S. Chan and Kim Chan). Some schools, such as the University of Michigan, receive less than seven percent (S. Chan and Kim Chan). These numbers hit some schools extremely hard. According to Hulsey in his article about the cost of education: State contributions to the 2009-10 operating budget declined by $189 million at UCLA, $109 million at University of Florida, $99 million at University of Washington, and $63 million at Louisiana State University (LSU), according to a Nov.1, 2009, New York Times article by Paul Fain. The percentage decline was equally significant, ranging from 33 percent at UCLA to 27 percent at LSU. As a result of this, states receive pressure to make up for this and must raise tuition. Grant donors are also becoming less generous in their contributions to students as well. This makes affording college even......

A few of my students suggested that Mr. Krabbs might not be the father! NOTE: Some of your students may comment that Mr. Krabbs was married to a whale.

My High School Life

...A belief that I have come to hold after starting high school is that private schools fall short of the most important benefits that public schools have to offer. I have learned this through my own personal experience of going to a catholic grammar school for nine years, and then transitioning to the public high school that I currently attend. Of course, the main purpose of going to school is to gain a good education that will help you be successful in the future. This belief I do hold true; both private and public schools grant this opportunity. But public schools and private schools each grant an entirely different social experience, and the social experience, in my opinion, is much more valuable than the academic experience. Along with gaining an education, part of being successful in life is learning how to interact and form relationships with people who are different from you. In grammar school, the majority of the people I met were white, Catholic, and of the same learning ability. Every day at school, students were expected to wear uniform clothes, uniform hair styles, and learn at a uniform pace. There were no accommodations for people with slower learning paces; everyone was expected to keep up. Growing up, this is how I expected all schools were like. For nine years I was almost blinded to the fact that people of different religion and learning pace, even physical appearance, even existed in the real world. But the fact is there are more types of people than......

Does School Prepare You for Life?

...The school days are crammed with facts and figures, encompassing various subjects ranging from English to Mathematics. All of these require students to learn, memorise, understand and to be tested. Besides grades and examinations, the school also encompasses a wider curriculum including character moulding, citizenship building and personality development. Indeed, I think the school does prepare us for life. Firstly, the school teaches us self-discipline. We learn to keep to a schedule and to adhere to the timetable. We also learn to appreciate time and to be punctual. Moreover, we are trained to plan and manage time wisely. We also abide by and respect rules and regulations. The disciplined students will grow up to be disciplined adults and they will do well in their future undertakings. The school also helps to fortify our determination and perseverance. We learn to fulfil the demands of the school. We also learn to meet deadlines and hand in the homework on time. Moreover, we learn to face stress and pressure. In school, students learn to overcome challenges. Students with strength of character will be well-prepared to face the challenges of work and life in the future. Co-curricular activities are part and parcel of a student’s life. They help to mould students’ character and personality so that students learn to be confident. They help to hone the leadership qualities in the students themselves. Students learn to work together and co-operate with others. They......

Key to Life in High School

...We look back on life and wonder if someone would have told us how to live life a few years ago, we would not be in the same situation we are in now. For example, a relative telling you to not regret anything you do in life, or to always live in the moment and not look back. Advice is key to living a great life. If one listens to the people who have already experienced what he or she is now going through, one could embrace life and live it to the best of their potential. One should listen to their elders; they know what they are talking about. Even though I have not experienced a lot in my life, I have been through high school and know now how to handle it. One piece of advice is to always be independent and not thrive on following the crowd or trying to look “cool.” I, personally, have always been independent and love being on my own. If you try to be a follower, you will not experience life for yourself; you will be experiencing life through another person. Being independent during high school will also help you when you go to college and even after that. If you want to go away for school or are planning on moving out of your parents’ home, you will not have mommy and daddy to depend on. Not depending on anyone but yourself will bring you closer to finding out who you really are and you will have a better understanding of what life feels like when you are on your own. Not believing everything people tell you is also crucial for surviving high school. Teenagers......

Life in Med School

...Dermis Attachment of epidermis to dermis is enhanced by an increased interface between the two tissues. The junction between the dermis and epidermis is seen in the light microscope as an uneven boundary except in the thinnest skin. Sections of skin cut perpendicular to the surface reveal numerous fingerlike connective tissue protrusions, dermal papillae, that project into the undersurface of the epidermis (see Figs. 15.1 and 15.2). The papillae are complemented by what appear to be similar epidermal protrusions, called epidermal ridges or rete ridges, that project into the der- mis. If the plane of section is parallel to the surface of the epi- dermis and passes at a level that includes the dermal papillae, however, the epidermal tissue appears as a continuous sheet of epithelium, containing circular islands of connective tissue within it. The islands are cross sections of true fingerlike der- mal papillae that project into the epidermis. At sites where in- creased mechanical stress is placed on the skin, the epidermal ridges are much deeper (the epithelium is thicker), and the dermal papillae are much longer and more closely spaced, creating a more extensive interface between the dermis and epidermis. This phenomenon is particularly well demon- strated in histologic sections that show both palmar and dor- sal surfaces of the hand, as in a section of a finger. True dermal ridges are present in thick skin in addition to dermal papillae. Dermal ridges tend to have a......

...6 Things You Should Not Expect After High School 6 Things You Should Not Expect After High School 1.      A 8-5 job after graduation Seriously? Face the reality. Being a graduate is not a free pass to get a job. You won’t get a job either you’re Master or PhD student, nope cause your school is just a school. There’re lecturers and professors but they won’t promise you a job. All they did was pumping students in order to get you educated but not get you a job yet they’re still doing it. Yes, take or leave it. You won’t get better than this. 2.     High Salary You have your own expertise. You might a statistician, a doctor or maybe an engineer. But remember this, don’t let high salary history derails you job search because you won’t get it, unless you’re a son of big boss. Are you? Most people don’t. 3.     Be a boss Do you really want to be a boss? Well, your degrees won’t take you there, believe it or not, that’s the reality of life. You don’t just be a boss since you know the Pythagoras theorem. Fuck Pythagoras theorem. You won’t be a boss of such a big company because they’re already having their own targets. He might be someone who has a big leverage or clout so that your company will stand stronger and longer. 4.     Hang out with your best pals Three things in life once you lost are hard to build-up; friends, respect and trust. You’ll face it because I’ve faced it too and I think I’ve made it. Sometimes in life, you will think that you do not need anyone...
