My whole life, I have never heard of the doll test until today. I can't imagine seeing myself or my younger brother to accept the stereotypes that are being held against us. My first reaction watching the doll test video, I was in shock and I could not believe how the black children are oppressing their own race. Their was only one black girl who said that people with a lighter skin color are mean because they are racist to black people. But most of the children in the video agreed that people with the dark skin are ugly, dumb, and mean.
When I was a little kid, we were not as advanced as today. What is considered old right now was the highest tech known back then. One example is the first desktop computer. As I moved the mouse with my hand, something maneuvered across the screen. I saw a button and I clicked on it. I clicked on what I later learned was a program on the computer. My parents showed me Microsoft Word, and as I press a key on the keyboard a letter showed up and it felt like magic.
The book Teen Angel is about a girl who is a Sophmore, her name is Celia. Celia has meet a boy named Nicky and it was as if she fell in love with him from the moment he spoke to her. She knew that he was a little too old for her.
In the book Finally, by Wendy Mass, a young girl named Rory Swenson can’t wait to be twelve. When you are twelve you may feel like you have more freedom to do things, such as going to the mall with your friends or finally being able to get a phone. Rory felt this way, she felt more grown and like every other girl in her school. There were things that Rory did when she turned twelve, they just didn’t turn out to be what she expected.
Kristina, the protagonist in "Crank", has a few traits that influence he relationships with others.
One, is she is adventurous. Two, she is young. Three, she is not shy.
These traits influence her relationships with others. Her adventurous, boldness and youth comes into play.
Later, on page 254, Brendan interacts with Kristina, basically both of them had a thing going on. “The pretty one looks like you, but the others don't.” Kristina’s response here deepens a reader’s sense of Brendan as she gets an emotional feeling attached, and sparks a feeling of romance.
The instructor said, (1)
Go home and write
a page tonight.
And let that page come out of you---
Then, it will be true. (5)
I wonder if it's that simple?
I am seventeen, young, born in San Pablo.
I am in relationships here and there
to the point where I’m just tired of trying.
I am one of those asians who date out of their race. (10)
The steps my mom took lead me to a different past
through the dark, then into the light,
Nicole Avenue, Thirty-fifth, and I come to the High,
the Skyline High, where I came to get my education
There is a saying that there are no good books that are only for children. The same concept simply cannot be applied to adult books. Good children’s books evoke an emotional response that can be the same for both children and adults. Children’s literature is essentially a simplified medium into which relatable themes are conveyed.
Recently in English we've been studying about. At first, I thought that it was just a guy die but then it said that he die just for music. When I read this book about him. I started to think that the guy who die was being mean when they was fight. I know that many people feel that why. After doing this study, I think that they should've find the guy who killed him. For example, I heard that his mom was fighting for him.
No Choirboy by Susan Kulkin is a life hearing story of Ameican prisonboys telling their stories and backgrounds on why they're behind bars.
This book was kind of not my type. It was interesting to see how prison cells are different across the workd but it did mot catch my attention. Readers who are interested into violence,murder, and real life data interviews.
This is a photo of my dad when he was a small child. I first used the spot healing brush in Photoshop to repair all of the spots and distracting elements. Then I cropped out the blown out white splotches on the sides, and increased the contrast to make the blacks darker and the whites brighter in the photo.
Needless to say, we have to respect and obey older people, partly because they have more experience and knowledge than us, so what they say is almost true. However, that doesn't mean they know everything and young people have nothing to teach them. In the following part of the essay, I will support the idea that there are some things we know but they haven't known and they can learn from us.
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been people having a hard time sleeping at night. I remember my fifth grade teacher talking about it in class but I was having some difficulties understanding it. Lately, this issue has caught my eye again. I know that many people feel that sleeping is important and it shouldn’t be taken away from them. From what I heard people are having problems sleeping because of the responsibilities they have to do and there just too tired to do anything.
The book that i chose to read is so far OKAY. Reading the first chapter of the book made me want to know the girl Tasha more just to tell her that she’s not alone. There’s a lot of teen parents out here that struggles just as much as she does. The girl also sounds a bit illiterate. I'm guessing it’s because she is a young parent that is barely in the ninth grade.
Kids are the next generation, they are the future, they are the symbol of innocence, but what makes you no longer a kid? Is it the innocence that makes us kids? Is it our age? Is it when we legally become adults? I agree with the federal law on this one, when i say what distinguishes adults from kids is the ability of knowing right from wrong. So even if a kid does know right from wrong, could you hold it against him as a child? What if you are an adult, but truly can not distinguish right from wrong? Then can you still hold that person against his actions? If so, then ignorance really is an excuse. Luckily, i don't agree with that part. Even if you don't know what your doing is wrong, doesn't make the fact right, or any better for that matter. If your ignorant, it is your fault and your fault only. If you didn't know any better, it is not my fault, its not your parents fault, its not your guidance counselors fault, it is yours, and yours only. With that knowledge come responsibility. The responsibility which makes us from kids to adults. The responsibility of dealing with your actions, right or wrong.
This is a photo of an 18 year old boy who was willing to share his view on the after life. Unlike many he has developed his own relgion that has been derived from different beliefs- mainly christianity and karma. He believes that when the time has come to end life on earth on is judged by the balance of good and bad.
