We have to do a senior project in order to graduate from our school. What I am trying to do for my project is teach the saxophone, to players who have not been playing as long as me. The reason for this is because I have to do something to benefit the community. I think that this benefits the community because I helping to bring arts and humanities and keep it in the community. I also have to create and conduct interviews. Also I have to conduct meetings with an adviser for my project. I also need to take numerous pictures for each checkpoint. I also have to create a binder that I can put everything that I do in. I have to create activity logs to go along with what I have done on my project. I also have to create an online binder with all of the same stuff as my real binder. At the end I have to make a research paper. After the binder is complete I have to make a presentation to present to a group of teachers and if I pass that then I will graduate. If I don’t pass that then I cannot walk across the stage at graduation. I really want to pass the presentation so that I can walk across the stage with the rest of my class. I think that I will pass my senior project presentation and I will be allowed to walk across the stage at graduation with the rest of my class. Right now what I am doing is a synopsis of my senior project of what I have to do for it. I have to create a five hundred word synopsis of my senior project and submit it to my blog which is on wordpress.com. I need to make more tabs for my binder so that I can complete all the tabs of my binder. Hopefully I will successfully finish and pass my senior project for the graduation process.
I think that this poem describes very accurately the attitudes of people today. They think that if something is too difficult then you should just give up and not try. I don’t think that this is the right kind of mindset for the world. If something is too difficult then you should try harder so that you can accomplish the task at hand.
I think that king henry viii is the one who is being referred to as Caesar. The reason I think that is because the time period and the person who wrote it was very close to king henry. Also it was Wyatt’s job was to write and sing about king henry. and that is who I think is being referred to as ceaser.
In case you haven’t been paying attention to the news, the federal government (or at least the “non-essential” parts of it) has been shut down.
What’s the cause of this shutdown? The simple technical answer is that Congress hasn’t approved a spending bill, so the government isn’t allowed to operate. The more important question is: Why did this happen? You’ll likely get a different answer depending on who you ask, but the underlying cause is that America’s two major political parties have been unable to cooperate. It’s gotten so bad that some Congressmen have basically admitted that they aren’t really interested in working together for the betterment of the country; They only care about getting their way.Unlike that song that the kids enjoy so much, the line between Republicans and Democrats does not seem to be blurred at all. In fact, the line seems to be sharper and more defined than ever before.Most of the population appears to be as divided as our elected leaders. Since there’s no better way to gauge the mindset of America, I took a quick look around the internet. Based on what I’ve seen, this is how Democrats and Republicans view each other.Democratic opinion: Republicans are misogynistic WASPs who care only about helping the rich get richer.Republican opinion: Democrats are bleeding-heart liberals who want to bankrupt this country by turning it into a socialist welfare state.I think a large part of this problem is due to confirmation bias. People have an unfortunate tendency to only focus on news and opinions that agree with their own personal beliefs as well as finding information that proves the other side is wrong.If you’re a Republican, why not take a break from reading articles that declare Obamacare to be evil? If you’re a Democrat, you might want to diversify your reading and not just stick to sources that harp on how pro-business legislation is destroying the middle-class. And if you’re Senator Ted Cruz, then I ask that you simply stop doing anything, because you’re only making things worseIf we take some time to see things from the other party’s perspective, we might actually start to understand each other better and be able to work together towards a common goal. Who knows? If we can change, maybe our political leaders will begin to follow suit. And if they don’t? Then perhaps it is time to vote in some new leaders who will.
I walk home with my books in my bag,
Down the long road that I am sick of
I think to myself,
This will be one of the last times I walk
I keep going,
Pressing my feet into the pavement as hard as I
I stomp away the days I wasted in this place.
I try to think of the
day when I’ll be free of it,
Try to imagine what those steps would feel
The steps leading to that all powerful rolled piece of paper.
little rocks into the future ahead of me,
I keep going,
My step lightens
as I wonder of the future,
Will those steps lead to more years of hated roads
and books and bags,
Or will those steps lead to my dream.
i like this poem because i feel the same as the writer of the poem who just wants to get out and off of the path that they keep walking daily.
