I was going down a bad path in middle school, while I was living with my dad. I was doing bad things and being a bad person. I wont go into to details because I don’t want you to think differently of me, but it got so bad that I was forced to live with my mom. And for awhile I hated it, living with her, her in general, because I missed my old friends and my old school. I thought that if I complained enough or was moody enough they’d let me move back. Well I didn’t. I was forced to go to a new school, which mad me really mad and sad. So for the first 2 weeks I was really antisocial and gave people dirty looks because I was very resentful of everything. I didn’t know these people, I didn’t grow up with them like I did with my other friends. I didn’t share memories or stories or laughs with anyone like I did with my old friends. But during those two weeks, another girl who was new to the school reached out to me and we became friends. And then I met her friends and then their friends and so on so forth. I got to know a lot of people, and even though they weren’t my old friends they weren’t so bad. They were decent people. I started acting better, I was nicer and happier and got into the school. I was even voted most school spirited. I took asb to run the school activities and to get to know more people who were really cool. Yes there were stuck up snobby people, but there was only a few out of the whole school. And once high school came everyone seemed to mellow out and become more real. And the people I once resented I am now friends with. There are still some who I’m not friends with, but we still know each other at least. And because I let go of my resentment, my anger, my sadness, of my past and way of thinking, I became great friends with a lot of good people. Now there are people who I know and who I don’t who come to me for advice, or they know that if there’s something wrong ill help them, ill give them my ear to listen, my shoulder to cry on, my arms

My High School Journey
People say that “your high school years are the best years of your life”. Eh. Thats slightly true. For me, it was my senior year. The previous three were hell. High school was everything you could possibly imagine. Gossiping girls, mystery lunches, gossiping girls, weird teachers, gossiping girls, hot guys, oh and gossiping girls! To say the least I am not a fan of gossiping girls, or gossip. Especially when being…

appointment; so why do college students have classes that are required, yet serve no
purpose for the field of work they choose to study in.
High school was meant for teaching the basic necessities of each subject. But

jobs offer decent pay, benefits and the opportunity for promotion. Secondary-sector employment offers dead-end jobs with low wages, no benefits and high levels of instability. Crutchfield’s bottom line is adult employment in primary-sector jobs reduces crime, while employment in secondary-sector jobs does not. The most obvious policy response here is to make sure that job creation efforts focus on primary-sector jobs. Crutchfield believes that starts with education. Children with high levels of attachment…
decades ago, education was not as important because many jobs did not have educational requirements. In those days, you could have a high school diploma, and get a decent job supporting your family. Today however, if you only have a high school diploma the types of jobs that you can get include fast food restaurants or maybe construction work. Also, there are the few people that dropped out to start a business and became millionaires. I think you have better chances of winning the lottery than for that…
