JouneJournal 3-1 (homeschool Students)

Should homeschool students be allowed to play on public school sports teams? should the fact that their parents pay taxes be a factor? what else should be considered when deciding if the students can or cannot play? Do i think homeschool students should be able to play?

why should Homeschool stop a students from being ona sports team? I do think that homeschooled students should able able to partcipate in public school sport teams. it shouldnt stop them from getting the sanme chance as any other student. I think that each individual should have the same advantage as the other one. For example, if students that go to an alterantive school are able to play on a puble sports teams, why cant a homeschool student play?

There are a various number of things that should be considered when making these desicions like: Behavior, Grades, or even If they are using there education they best they can or arer they just coming toschool to fight, and/or any other thing that could get them in trouble. These specific things will show the personality or persal well-being of these students, and i think what is shown should be a good or bad influence of the decsion that will be made.

The fact that the parents do pay taxes is important, however if you think about how many students actually play on a team in a public school eventhough their parents pay doesnt really make a differnce. if doesnt even have to really be on a public team, nowadays the community have teams at the nearby rec centers that will allow anybody to play.

As for my all around thoughts on homeschooled students being able to play on public sport teams, everyone should have an equal chance, just like the next person

Journal 2-3 ( Has there ever been a time?)

Has there every been a time in your life when you felt grief? when you felt like nothing in your life was going right? When the world just look down on you for every little thing that you did or have done? Has there ever been a time?

The one time i have ever felt the most grief is when my uncle died. he died in a car crash in a car crash while he was home visiting his family in France. They were hit on the side by a drunk driver, and the car had been flipped over. He was with his sister and their friend were okay but when they went to go check on him and there they saw a pool of blood and him dead.To me, my uncle was my inspiration. He was kind, caring. He was athletic. He was just a really cool, loving Dude. He was a french teacher at Wildrow Wilson high school and the students there loved him deeply.And along with the love they respected him as well. When his students found out that he had passed away it was a tragic reaction. They cried as much as we did and called to check on the family as much as they could.

My Uncle meant more to me than anyone knows. He pushed me to get as far in life as i could. He was the one besides my dad that really saw what i could do or be before i even knew it. I keep my head up high and mighty because i know that he is up there watching over me. And i promise to make him proud

Journal 2-4 ( Former Highschool students)

High school can be either Challenging or a "breeze" for some people. It can be challenging to those people who thought high school was going to be just like middle school. There is a big difference between getting babied and becoming your own independent person. These are the student that come to school and just wants to be with their friends or "crew" and do little to no work.
Eventually they will soon come to find out that high school isn't all fun an games. students will see that high school is what shapes you into the person you will be in the future as far as jobs, college, etc.
High school bring of they true personalities in people. You will come to school with like 10 friends for example and leave your senior year with 2. Becoming your person means know what you and your education is about. its all fun and games until your realize everyone is looking down on you because you decided to play around all year.
If i had to compare my high school years to something it would the TV show NED D. classified. Choosing this show as an comparison, he was just like me entering high school. Him and i were just to average know students with a couple of friends coming to high school not knowing to expect. Not everything is as sweet as you might think.

Character Analysis

Macbeth is introduced in the play as a warrior hero, whose fame on the battlefield wins him great honor from the king. Essentially, though, he is a human being whose private ambitions are made clear to the audience through his asides and soliloquies (solo speeches). These often conflict with the opinion others have of him, which he describes as "golden". Despite his fearless character in battle, Macbeth is concerned by the prophecies of the Witches, and his thoughts remain confused, both before, during, and after his murder of King Duncan. When Duncan announces that he intends the kingdom to pass to his son Malcolm, Macbeth appears frustrated. When he is about to commit the murder, he undergoes terrible pangs of conscience. Macbeth is at his most human and sympathetic when his manliness is mocked and demeaned by his wife.

Macbeth has resolved himself into a far more stereotypical villain and asserts his manliness over that of his wife. His ambition now begins to spur him toward further terrible deeds, and he starts to disregard and even to challenge Fate and Fortune. Each successive murder reduces his human characteristics still further, until he appears to be the more dominant partner in the marriage. Nevertheless, the new-found resolve, which causes Macbeth to "wade" onward into his self-created river of blood,is persistently alarmed by supernatural events. The appearance of Banquo's ghost, in particular, causes him to swing from one state of mind to another until he is no longer sure of what is and "what is not".

Song Lyrics To Match Character

"Premeditated Murder"
J.Cole

[Verse 1:]
Am I changing right before your eyes?
Becoming someone you don't recognize
As if I was disguised, I'm on that shit as if I was the Fly
I'm touchin' skies, no puffin' lie
Man these songs that I made in my bedroom and shit
Gon' finally give a nigga leg room and a whip
From a Civic to a Chevy must've died and went to heaven
Like a passenger on 9/11 - please go find a reverend
You see I promise that I'd never change
But that was way before I made the dough and met the game
Say hello to Miss Thang, I forgot yo name, she yellow
And even white women want a nigga - Othello
I'm ballin' with nuggets, like fuck it I'm Carmello
Now the crib got much room -Portobello
She drop it low and then she bust moves for the fellow
I sit yo ass down like you was playin' a cello
See, you niggas hated and I levitated further
Knew I would kill the game, premeditated murder
So if it comes down, may the best man win
No sweat like a head band

[Chorus:]
Where I'm from, if you ever seen what I seen
You know it can't get no better for me
No it can't get no better for me
Where I'm from, if you ever seen what I seen
You know it can't get no better for me
No it can't get no better for me

[Verse 2:]
I'm a kill the game and invite witnesses
No death penalty, I'm givin' out life sentences
Like keep grindin' boy, your life can change in one year
And even when it's dark out, the sun is shining somewhere
Yeah, look here I pay dues
My own worst enemy so fuck it either way I can't lose
808's so my south niggas feel me
Light-skinned so the house niggas feel me
She catch me creepin' out your house she'll kill me
Is it worth it what's under that blouse?
My heart'll turn pitch black and cold if I split with my girl
If I could gift-wrap the globe, I would give you the world
But, do you love me like you used to?
Even though I ain't that nigga that you're used to
Remember back when I was broke, you would fix me
Do you prefer the broke me or the rich me
The broke me couldn't buy you meals, not even a value meal
And now I pay for everything, how you feel?
Mixed feelings 'cause now all the chicks feelin' him
You gotta adapt though never goin' back

[Chorus:]
Where I'm from, if you ever seen what I seen
You know it can't get no better for me
No it can't get no better for me
Where I'm from, if you ever seen what I seen
You know it can't get no better for me
No it can't get no better for me

I can't keep running away
I can't keep running away
I swear I'm coming back today
But if I'm wrong
And I ain't got what it takes
Then all dem people that was counting on me
Boy won't you climb down the mountain for me
