Eminem and His Life

This is the guy that everyone says is not a good influence. They didn’t really know what he has been through. Now they will.

Eminem was born on October 17,1972, on my two brother’s birthdays. He is now 40 years old and was born in Saint Joseph,Missouri. He was known as the real Slim Shady or Marshal Mathers because that is what they called him before they changed it to Eminem. They called him Eminem because he was a professional rapper and music producer and a film actor. His genre is gangsta rap.

In his really bad and harsh childhood he released the Marshal Mathers LP. It was the fastest selling album in the world. Eminem never knew his father because he left him or abandoned him when he was an infant. Instead he was raised by his mother; which wasn’t the best for him either. All the moving had a big impact on him, he had no close friends, kept to himself, and was treated like an outcast at every new school. He was also bullied and pushed into lockers. He entered Lincoln High School and failed the ninth grade three times. Eminem ended up quitting the high school. He found that no matter how bad his grades were he had a passion for language. So he figured out a way to express his passion and his anger by rapping. Even though he was white, he had entered on the rap battles.

Despite his race he had became one of the most respected rappers in the world. While he desperately wanted a record deal, it was later dramatized by his semi-autobiographical movie 8-mile. Inspired by his daughter, he released a single rap album called “Infinite.” He was dating his high school girlfriend Kim Ann Scott and later had a daughter named Hailie Jade Scott. Dr. Dre came to see Eminem at his rap battles and was so impressed, he signed his record label at the spot. He released his second studio album called “The Marshal Mathers.” Eminem and Kim got a divorce in 2000 and had an on-off relationship until they got remarried in 2006. They had a fight two months later and had an ugly fight trying to get custody of Halie.

Later in 2007, Eminem lost and got an addiction to drugs. A little bit after that, he overdosed and almost died. In 2008, he managed to quit the addiction and record music again. In 2009 he recorded the music “Crack a Bottle” and “Beautiful.”

Eminem accused his mom Deborah of being addicted to drugs and abuse. She denied it and filed a $10 million lawsuit against her son. Unfortunately, she settled for $25,000.
Now I hope you know how and what this guy has been through. You think his music is a bad influence, well put yourself in his shoes. Ask yourself what you would do?

She saw it out their small window and had a big smile, but then she was sad because no one could get it. Right next to there house was a castle, but the one who owned that castle was not very pleasing. That evil witch was named Dame Gothel. Unfortunetly, John loved Anna so much, that while she was sleeping, he went over to the castle and grabbed the flower. Then he heard a loud noise that almost sounded like the flapping of wings. He was so scared he was trembling. He stood there long enough to see what was on it. So out of his squinting eyes, he saw the witch Dame Gothel. With fury in her eyes, she told her dragon to land. They eventually came up with a deal. He could have the flower if she could have their baby. So after Anna had her baby, she and John gave Rapunzel to the witch and h left. After 18 years, the princess found her parents, and she also found a prince. They fell in love and lived happily ever after.

Bubble Mania is mostly a simple game if you have patience. The main point of the game is to knock down as many bubbles as you can, because there are babies inside of the cute pink kitten. You will try to knock down as many as you can. You only have so many bubbles before you lose the game. If you free all the babies before you end, all the rest of the bubbles will fall down. By that happening, you will earn more points and get more energy, so you can play again. It will also get you more coins, so that you can purchase more boosts. If you fail a level 5 times, then you will lose an energy point and by doing that you will either have to wait or you will have to buy it again with gems. After you beat a level, you get to move on! Don’t get too excited! If you're not patient, then you will rip your head off because it gets harder.


I disagree for the school day being shorter because I have to babysit. My mom has to work and everyday she comes home late. Also because kids would have to have more education and they cant handle remembering all of it. My karate lessons are from 5:30 to 9:30 and I cant afford to be late. I have to work on my Technics and moves. Running is my favorite sport and I run from 3:30 to 4:45 and still have to get to karate lessons. Classes will be longer and we would have to sit still and be quiet longer than we would have to and kids don't do that in the first place why would you make it longer. Another is that you would get really sleepy and probably fall asleep, and get into trouble because of having to sit there for a long time and no break from learning.
