When I read Dan Greenburg’s Sound and Fury I could think back when I experienced anger. I was no more than 15 or 16 and I had been dealing with this group of girls in my P.E. class at school. I don’t know why I had to be the one to be picked out to be picked on to me it was so childish because I know I didn’t do anything to them but only thing I could think of was jealousy. I lived with my grandparents I was spoiled I had whatever I wanted and more. I wore nice clothes and shoes. I hung with the popular people meaning we were involved in many school activities, after school programs and the administrators and teachers knew who we were. But it had gotten to the point where they were selling out in front of people and t would embarrass me and I knew if I acted out it would have an effect on how people would look at me from then on. SP I ignored them every time. So one day I was at my locker and one of the girls made it her business to bump me, I didn’t do nothing I waited until she was around a group of people like they done to me and I confronted her and it escalated to me putting my hands in her face. Knowing I shouldn’t have because I got expelled for 5 days, but it didn’t stop there the other friends wanted to get me because I had bothered there friend. So when I came back to school, I thought it was over next thing you know schools and I’m on the bus and I kind of noticed that our bus was more packed than it normally is. Not knowing she has let everyone know that we would be fighting at my bus stop so someone informed why she was there and what she had planned. So I went to confront her and we ended up fighting. I got suspended off the bus ad expelled from school again. So both times I was upset due to anger. Both times I let anger control my actions and I ended up putting my hands on someone else. This could have been avoided but I was tired of being embarrassed in front of my friends and classmates. And on the other hand I started thinking about how others would look at me for not saying anything back to them. So I was acting out so they would know I was.t scary by a long shot. Really I could of just asked the girls what was their problem towards me and we wouldn’t have had to do it in front of a lot of people to prove a point. Or I could of even went to the principle and let him knew that I was having some problems with a couple of girls in my P.E. class and he could of gotten all us together to get it resolved. I learned that just because someone has a problem with you, you don’t have to make a scene to prove a point to no one, because at the…
High school was the place where I made many life-changing decisions. I spent my first nine years in school back home in Medina, Saudi Arabia as a boy whose goal of going to school was to hang out with friends, but it was much different in high school because we had to plan for our transition from secondary school to college.
My school building was a huge gray building that had approximately 600 male students. Boys and girls were segregated because all Saudi schools were not allowed…
is Lucy. I am a high school student, I do not want others people at my high school to know I am in an outpatient program. I do not want to be judged for my past, but for who I am today. This is my story, I started using Norco’s when I was 14 yrs. old, and I took them from my grandma’s medicine cabinet. I became addicted rather fast. I started taking more and more, before long my grades at school started suffering. I started falling asleep in class when I was not ditching. The school counselor called…

8 Years Old and Independent
At the age 17 I am more independent than ever and it bothers my mom like crazy. This year I bought all my school clothes and school supplies with my own money. She despises that I don’t rely on her but I feel like she should be relieved because she should know I won’t have to depend on her as I get older.
Since I was 8 years old, I learned to take care of myself. My mom always had to work two jobs to raise my brother, my sister and me. I have never been the “average”…
thing especially when four years until graduation seems so close, yet so far away. With what seems to be the most important decision of a students’ career college can be very intimidating. Should I go to a four year university or possibly a trade school where I can get some on the job experience? Or maybe further education isn’t even the right route for me to take. This all has to be chosen at the right time or you may find yourself stuck in a spot you don’t want to be in. Everything happens for…
Imagine this… You forget to set your alarm, so you wake up late. You rush to get ready. As you are driving out of the driveway you realize you are low on gas. You finally make it to class, but you are late. One more tardy and you have Saturday school. Your second period class has a pop quiz which you are not prepared for. When you go to the restroom you over hear two of your friends making fun of your outfit. You are wondering if this day could possible get any worse. And then it does…
High School to College
Going from high school to college can be a culture shock. Although they share some basic similarities, the differences between the two are profound. While both require pencils, paper, books, classrooms and teachers; the choices, responsibilities, locations and cost are differences that impact the student for the rest of his or her life.
The choices a student is responsible for while in high school are geared more toward their social standing, and not their education per…

The four pillars taught in the school of Welton are tradition, excellence, honor, and discipline which is what standards Bridgeport High School is built upon.

Also, Bridgeport High School has a large emphasis on the importance of honor which…
High School Graduation
Graduation is an exciting time in a person’s life, especially a high school graduation. For most people their graduation day is one of their best day of their lives. No more high school, and for some it means that they are able to move on with their life and live on their own as well as embark on the independent journey of college. In my case, when I think of family and friends gathering to celebrate a joyous occasion. I feel like I accomplished my strongest goal. It never…
