Effects of High School on Mental Health

Effects of High School on Mental Health

https://sites.google.com/lcps.org/mentalhealthinhs/home I decided to do transform my research paper into a google sites.  I decided that this was the best option for the directed audience and content that is being provided as it allows for a complex topic to be conformed into a simple, interactive website that is easy to absorb information from, without feeling overwhelmed.  I also took note that there were many points that I wanted to cover in this new genre, so I did not want to…

High School Swim

High School Swim

I really do love high school swim.  I am pretty mediocre at it, but it is nice because in a way it is a break from the extreme competitiveness of soccer. Not to say that I do not push myself in meets and practices- I do. But when competing against girls who have swam year round their entire life there is a very slim chance of actually beating them, although I have a few times in shorter distance races. What…

Driving to Soccer

Driving to Soccer

Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I drive an hour for soccer practice.  Well, I suppose two hours since I have to drive there and back home.  And typically it is more than three times a week since I have at least one game per week. I do not mind the drive though because I have had to do this since freshman year.  For the past few years that I have been playing at this soccer club my mom or dad…

“Your College Essay Isn’t a Selfie” Reflection

“Your College Essay Isn’t a Selfie” Reflection

I think that for anyone who is planning on applying to college should definitely read this article.  I believe the author brings about a good point that being vulnerable is ok and that making your life seem perfectly flawless is not realistic.  Everyone goes through challenges in life and although some events are bigger than others everyone has to deal with them and I believe it is how a person handles that situation which shows their true character.  So following…

Senior Year and Beyond

Senior Year and Beyond

Senior year has been pretty good this year.  I have become friends with people that I used to not talk to as much and I have befriended people that I never had talked to prior to this year.  I really do love my classes also because I find as though it is finally the year that I get to take classes that I am genuinely interested in, and not forced to do. This plays a domino effect on my life;…

High School Artifact

High School Artifact

I have played soccer for most of my life.  In fact, I have played year round soccer for about 10 years.  This past season, we were in a showcase tournament.  It was the first game of the showcase and I had not played soccer in a few months so I was a little rusty.  Nevertheless, I had a pretty great game.  With two minutes left of the game, I went up to head the ball.  I threw my head towards…

Organic Object

Organic Object

Throughout this process of talking to my acorn squash, I wondered if I questioned the inanimate object or myself more.  I found that my favorite detail of the squash was it’s dispersing tangerine color that covered just one portion of the surface.   The squash was named appropriately, since it looks just like an acorn, but enlarged ten or more times.  The ridges or grooves on the surface of the squash remind me of valleys and mountains, each in sync with…

A06 and A07 Readings

I found it interesting in Writing Tools when Roy Peter Clark said that “Writers use repetition as a tool of persuasion” (160).  For as long as I have had to explain the use of figurative language in a reading, I have always said that the author uses repetition in order to emphasize that portion of text, and also to make the reader more aware of what they were reading. This quote from the author of Writing Tools, opened my eyes…
