When I think about computer class I get upset, angry and feel terrible. I’m not fond of it .The class it self makes me sleepy and I feel that it’s a waste of time for me. I’m not really learning and I don’t leave school with any knowledge of what I was working on in class. I think there should be an alternative for these classes. Sleeping, looking into space, watching others on there computer, looking out the window and going to the bathroom is a way I try to escape from looking into the computer screen. Computer class is a work at your own pace program, meaning the faster or slower you work is how you gain credits. Its basically using the computer rather than having a teacher stand and give instructions and require you to write on paper with a pen. I don’t think it’s to good of a program because every assignment should have dead lines, so we stay on track of how we get credits.
Lately I have been extremely worried about college. Since freshman year everything in my life has been focused on helping me reach my goal of being accepted into Carnegie Mellon University's musical theatre program. I never really thought what I would do if I didn't get accepted I just believed that if I worked hard enough I would get in. After spending 6 weeks there I learned it was not my dream school anymore so for the past couple of months all of my energy has been spent searching for other musical theatre colleges. As I research I wonder if I can get in any of these schools. They all have a very low admission rate for theatre which just sucks since there are so many people hoping to make a life in theatre. It especially sucks if you are a girl because there are always an overload of girls auditioning, but never enough guys.It makes me freak out that if I don't get in my dream theatre school I won't be able to succeed in theatre. The only thing giving me hope surprisingly enough is Alice Ripley.
I can't take this life Too many pains in my chest Thought you were the one But all you caused was stress. Believed that you loved me But that was just a lie So now I turn my head and cry All the times that we cherished Was a lot of fun But my life will soon be done I'm signing off With a tear in my eye
As the holidays come around every year everyone goes just about completely crazy. If you just watched the T.V. and payed attention only to the media, you would think that the holidays was a lazy kick back time. However back in reality this never seems to be the case.
With the holiday's coming up, and our current decline in economic stature, this whole recession thing makes me wonder how it is going to affect the surge of holiday spending. Many people predict that there will be a slow down of spending and retail stores are going to suffer in a major way. When the people of our nation have no money, why would they go spend it on frivolous gifts?
With the economy falling apart, financial problems everywhere, unemployment craziness, etc., stress is at an all-time high for many people. Stress can have horrible side-effects, and can even be fatal. Going anywhere from just a simple headache, to a full on anxiety attack, stress can attack the body in just a short matter of time.
My last post was about the different effects sports can have on you, and how endorphins can help your body. Endorphins are essential to making a person happy. Some big factors that endorphins help are stress and pain. It's almost as if endorphins act as a drug to hide a bad emotion.
Most people get some type of enjoyment out of what ever they do. Whatever way is possible someone will find a way to make something better then what it is. Enjoyment is what helps us move people forward and work harder. If someone enjoys what they're doing, they will work twice as hard to get it done.
If you are currently a high school Senior, you are probably thinking a lot about where you would like to go to college next year. Factors in your decision might include the size of the school, the quality of academics and/or athletics at the school, and the cost of attending the school. You also might be interested in learning about the type of people that go to a school. Many
