If I am being completely honest, my work has been less than subpar. I haven’t turned in like anything for any teacher for the past two weeks. I am really slipping and I couldn’t tell you why.
It’s been really hard for me to focus these past couple months and I think my depression has come back full force. The only thing I want to do is sleep and watch Netflix. I have no idea how to fix it either. I went back on my medications but that doesn’t seem to be working for anything. I really need to solve this problem.
What is the first thing you think of when someone says the word "school"? People usually say stress, grades, brain numb, maybe even stupid or boring, but consider the reason why students may say that, although they are told many times that education is a privilege. Does this mean that our schooling system in the United States may be too loose on pressuring our students into academic achievement?
My field research contained an interview with a teacher at Metwest High school about his opinion on internships and how they can help a student in school. It could help a student with either grades and credit recovery and in life with getting them a head start on how it will look in the real world with applying for a job or even getting interviewed for one as well.
My senior research topic is if internships can reduce the dropout rates. My field research is a survey for both teachers and students at Metwest High School about their internship program and how it helped their school. I plan to get my field research out soon so that I will be able to give you a better detailed reflection on what I’ve gotten done. I recently set up a date which I would be able to go to Metwest and conduct both an interview and a survey of the teachers and students there.
It has been about three weeks since I last wrote about the minimum wage problems. I have done some more research about the minimum wage since than and found some new data that is very interesting. I found a picture with Creative Commons, in the image it shows the different amounts of "minimum wage" for different state. I found out that there are four different states that have "minimum wages" lower than the normal Federal amount! I found that to be absurd! To make less than $7.25 an hour seems insane!
What's up everybody? Today is my Creative Writing class my teacher wants us to create a Level 3 Working Research Thesis for our Senior Projects. Our Senior Project thesis must articulate a focused, creative and debatable. It should also be related to a social inequity issue. Our thesis must present a well-reasoned, specific and viable solution. My thesis is the following below:
Since I have been working at a daycare for the state, I have began to notice that the amount of money that the average person makes there is not exactly the amount of money one can make a living off. Unlike most of the people that work there, I do not have to worry about paying for bills, groceries, a house, etc. Most of the people at my work have to live off the minimum wage they make, I think this is sad because working at a daycare is not the easiest job.
Writing T-I-E-D paragraph for Desiree’s Baby was a really hard assignment because i’m not a good writer. I understand that I’m a terrible writer i just started typing without thinking like how I’m doing right now. I wish that I could concentrate better or that I didn’t get distracted easily as i do, because I get distracted by literally anything no matter what is it. If you have any tips that could help me out I would appreciated, thanks.
God is the one who created us. He is the one who knows the past, present and future of our lives. we can't tell what will happen for tomorrow. We always worry so that we seek security and concern of the people around us. This scenarios often seen in the stage where a fresh graduate student from high school will soon enter college. Or a fresh graduate from College will soon enter the industrial world.
Everyone has a dream, something that seemed so possible when they were young but as you got older you got more realistic about it and you either let it go or you gripped it tighter. When I was young I was transfixed with music and by the radio. In the car, in the shower, through my mp3 player, I would be in my music and often the radio was to thank for that. To be frank, I need a career in music, more specifically in the radio.
Job-hunting in the economy today is a long, stressful process for most job applicants. 52% of disabled people between the ages of sixteen and sixty-four are “economically inactive”, 23% of the general population, according to the Office of National Statistics. This meaning that you are more than twice as likely not to have a job if you have a disability. This is even more painstaking for those with disabilities. I have attached an essay of mine that I have focused completely on this issue and what I think we can/should do about it.
Too much stress,
Senior paper is worse than a pest.
I think i can,
but the damn computer light is giving me a tan.
I'm done with this shit,
Cuz i can't give up.
Pharmacist is my goal,
but this is just a step.
Life ain't easy,
and so isn't this senior paper.
Hello students everywhere, I created a survey that allows me to gain statistics for my senior project. If you can, please complete my survey so I could further improve my research paper. The requirement is that you must me in high school or college and you must also work.
The fashion industry in New York depends on two things, the consumer and "the Garment District, eight blocks in Manhattan where designers, wholesalers, manufacturers, fabric sellers, button makers, and seamstresses all work" (1). This is an example of an economic cluster, other examples include Silicon Valley. The reason why these clusters create such success is because they "foster the freedom necessary for creativity to thrive, which is part and parcel of how great dresses are made in the first place.
I haven't done much work on my research paper since last week which is a huge setback to future editing of my paper. I still have to sit down with my teacher and discuss what ways i could write down a thesis that will satisfy even the most pressuring of judges.
In Morley’s book “You Wouldn't Want To Be A Pyramid Builder!” from Scholastic, the author went from talking about how many years does it take to make a pyramid to how families live. For example a Pyramid was built for Pharaoh named Unas. This was one of the first pyramids to be decorated inside. I think it is breathtaking that the pyramid is a symbol for the Pharaoh Unas. This must be special for the Pharaoh but the workers had to work very hard in order to be special. European travellers and explorers began exploring the pyramids.
The general topic I'm interested in, is the difficulty that high school students have to go through, specifically ones who have jobs. The reason why I chose this topic is because I am personally going through this situation of having a job while going to high school. I also wanted to do this topic because it spiked a interest in me because I see many of my friends who try to manage a job with school and other responsibilities in their lives. I also see some of their grades drop when trying to manage a job, I also noticed that they are more stressed and hang out less and less.
The video of Auret van Heerden's TED Talk on "Making Global Labor Fair" starts of talking about how materials to make a phone come from the earth then transported to china to a factory where several people have suicide. Also he talks about how chocolate comes from cocoa and how children have to work to make us the chocolate. He basically talks about how things we use are made and the struggle it that it takes to get our products. In addition it speaks about the human or living suffrage that occurs during the process to make the products we use.
In the book The Tent Steve and his father were still going around lying about his father's job as a preacher. Steve’s father actually got the idea from an old military buddy of his that did that after leaving the army, who then wrote back after several years with a picture of him in front of a fancy car saying “ I’m rich.” When Steve’s father committed to this false job as a preacher Steve was totally against it. After several times doing it and lying so much Steve became a little more calm.
Basically I'm talking about this big decision I have to make: if I want to graduate or be a nobody and its looking like im going to quit my job just so that I can be happy later. It's hard because I thought I would have finally been going to Honda Day in April in my very own Civic, but things don't always go as planned. Hopefully something good will happen from all this.
I finished the entire book
In the book "The City of Ember" by Jeanne DuPrau, there is an occasional black out every now and then. Doon Harrow has an idea on how to solve the problem if he can get to the generators (that means working as a pipework laborer). Lina Mayfleet who desperately wants to be a messenger, draw out the job as pipework laborer. On the other hands, Doon Harrow draws out messenger and he asks Lina to trade with him in which Lina agrees. Together, they explore the secrets of the City of Ember.
I found the following quote interesting:
What is the point of college? Will it make the value of life better? Or will it just be another speed bump? According to Louis Menand college is what you make of it. He was an Ivy-League professor before he was transferred to a traditional public university system. The change for him was drastic. The students from the public university compared to Ivy-League was of course known to be different but in the ways was shocking.
In The City Of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau, I found the following quote interesting:"First we get our education. Then we serve our city." In the old City of Ember, the lights flicker on and off every now and then. Everything in the city was in need of repair. There is a fear from the citizens that once the lights go out, it won't turn back on. In the text, it is Assignment Day and the graduating students are assigned jobs in the year 241. Jobs are chosen randomly by the students as it is their duty to serve for the city.
