Free Write

Today's Journal is a Free write so I am Going to write about last weekend and this weekend. Last Weekend was beach week it was alright this year last year was better though.There were so many parties and kickbacks Which i had fun at. The worst part about beach week was the weather , it was very cold and it ended up raining.What made it worse was that we were closer to the water which made it colder. This weekend my godmother is supposed to be coming down and I am very excited. I plan to have so much fun and have a good time catching up with each other because i haven't seen her in along time. I am very excited and i can't wait and i know that my family can't wait either.


Another event that is happening this weekend is Laportia's 18th birthday we are supposed to be having a party at a hotel. I know she can't wait for it because she has been talking about it before May even came. This weekend i should also be getting my hair done which i am personally excited about because i really need to get my hair done it looks a mess. In other hands I am paitently waitimg for prom and graduation. Two more months I am so estactic because i know prom and graduation are going to be so much fun.


For prom I already know what dress i'm going to wear, I am going to be so excited when the day come. I just need to get my graduation outfit and prom shoes, at times i just give up because i don't see nothing i like. In The back of the my head I'm Thinking about how the moment actually fells but i guess i'll never know until June 17th. Honestly some part of me is scared and the other part is happy. I personally don't think i am ready for the real world , i still act like a little child.


Then again I passed asll my Sol's i need to graduate i was so happy and relieved to have that out of the way , that was honestly the only thing that was holding me back to graduate. I also wonder how everyone is going to look for prom can't wait to see i believe that everyone is going to look beautiful and handsome.My Mother is also anxious because i'm her oldest child and her first to graduate from highschool. Everyone in my family is trying to come down but we only get a number of graduation tickets.



I can see my mom now smiling and crying , but crying tears of joy because ive come a long way from elementry and middle school. I am honestly suprised at myself because i didnt think i would be able to even get this far. I have such a i do what i want attitude i didnt even think i would pass the eleventh grade. I did it even though i had to go to summer school which i had fun with. Im just really glad that i made it too senior year im actually very proud of myself and cant wait to walk across the stage and garb that paper and shake Mr.Miller's hand.

Reputation

A good reputatuion is more valuable than money, I agree with this statement because money doesn't make everything.For example Chris Brown has the worst reputation right now , and even though hehas money that doesn't completely change the way people think about him.I would rather have a good reputaion than money because your reputation is way more important than you having money.


The only thing about money is that people who are not your friend come out and ask for money while they pretend to be your friend. With your reputation it only takes one time for you to screw up or do something so rememorable that when people talk about you that the one thing you are known for pops up and they began to judge you. for example nobody knew who president Obama was until he ran for president and he is known for making history.


If someone says who is Barack Obama you would be like you know the first African American president. I also belive your reputation is more valuable than money because your reputation sticks with you all your life and you if you go broke. Yeah money is good but i rather people respect me for what i do rather than what everyone asking you for money all the time.


Your reputation is a representaion of you and how your parents raised you ,Those are all the reasons to believe your reputation is more valuable than money because of the simple fact that your reputation lives on with you for forever even when you get older, when you come back for school reunions there going to be like that's the boy or girl that did this when we was in high school. In life people shouldnt really care what people say about them but we do and we wouldn't be human if we didn't. Honestly even if someone says they don't care what people think they are not telling the truth.


Money is a really important when you need it, but it is not better than a reputaion yes money gets you far but your repuation is forever. Doesn't matter how much money you have you will always be remembered by the one good or bad thing you have done in your life. Money doesn't buy happiness and if your happy with a bad reputation then thats you even though it is not good , you always want to strive for the better things in life. Your reputation represents you regardless if you have money or not.

Betrayal

Yes i have been betrayed by someone i trusted.I was betrayed by one of my closet friends,all she did was lie and even though she lied all the time i was still her friend. I was her friend right up until the point where i couldn't take it anymore and now where no longer friends. I know plenty of people that has been betrayed i think everyone has been betrayed one point in time in there life.Well if the person is not being betrayed and they are the one who is doing the betrayal than i believe they felt hurt.


I feel as if people do things to others that has happened to them in the past. Some advice i would give the betrayer is you shouldn't treat others the way you don't want to get treated.some other advice i would give them is if that has happened to them before they need to about it to someone else instead of taking it out on others.Some other advice i would give to the betrayed is that i know your hurt now from being betrayed but talk to someone about it.I would also tell them be careful who you put your trust into, because you never know whats going to happen.


For everyone that has been betrayed and has been the one to do the betrayal you need to get some help or talk to someone about it. Betrayal is not a very nice thing that happens, but sometimes it's a good thing that happens because some people are not good for you. Sometimes it's a life lesson when you go through hardships but the next time your in a situation you will know what to do and how to handle it.Nobody ever thinks that the person closet to them would be the one too hurt them the most. Some people forgive the people and continue to be their friend and honestly people do change not everyone though some think they are find just the way they are.


When people get hurt that messes up there trust for the next peson thst comes into there life and try to have relationship with them.Once you mess up trust it's hard to trust again and thats just being honest. Sometime betrayal messes up a person self esteem because they think they are not good enough and that everyone is out to ge them when the people just want to be friends or establish a good and healthy relationship with you. I'm not even gointg to lie when my friend did what she did i cried because i felt like it was my fault that everything happened. My mother told me it wasnt my fault and that i shouldv'e been more careful and to watch out next time.


My mother always told me when i was growing up and even now that not evryone is my friend. She told me to pick and choose my friends wisely and that if they are my friend they will except me for who i am. People are really quick to judge and my mother raised me on the saying " dont judge a book by it cover". I get to know people before i give them the cold shoulder and honestly that is a sign of betrayal right there not even willing to give some the time of day or a chance at a realtionship because of the way they look that is messed up.Thats why i always take my time to get to know people because i dont want them to feel betrayed like i did.

Lady MacBeth

This year in english i read a book called Macbeth she was the most manipulative character in the book. She was always in macbeth's ear telling bad things to do and out of love or whatever he wants to call it he did it. Lady Macbeth turned Macbeth crazy and she began to pay for it . In all honestly lady Macbeth was a coward because she was making everyone do what she was scared to do.She is always on the side of Macbeth telling him what she thinks he should do. When Macbeth was off at war, and told that the witches greeted him as Thane of Cawdor, and King of Scotland before he received those titles, she was probably scheming no how to fulfill those before he returned home. Once home, they had King Duncan stay at Dunsinane. Lady Macbeth then b-tches at her husband and ridicules his masculinity in order to make him commit murder (Friedlander). Macbeth reluctantly murders Duncan, even though he wanted to wait and have it all play out without killing anyone. When he went to the well to wash off his hands he speaks of his remorse, and lady Macbeth finds out that he did not implicate the guards, so she tells him to go do it. But he wont, so she insults him more, and goes to do it herself. Lady Macbeth was the reason that this play was what it is. If Lady Macbeth would have been a wife who didn't argue with her husband, and did what he said, like most wives back the did, none of this would have happened. She is not that different than women today, minus all of the murdering. They are manipulative, scheming, and deceptive. You can never trust a woman

Cant raise a man
Mmh mm
Ahh ah ah ahhh ah ahhh ah ah ahh

Listen,
He got older, but never grew,
For his life he can't tell the truth.
How to love he ain't got a clue,
Playing games like he'll never lose you.

Try to talk to him, can't get through,
Every day he's a different dude.
These are the signs of a grown ass boy,
Better run for the hills,
I'm just trying to keep it real.

You can't raise a man.
He's already grown, what you gonna do?
You wonder why he acts like a boy.
It's 'cause he wasn't raised right before you
Girl, you ain't never gonna change nobody,
If he don't wanna, you can't make nobody.
'Cause you can't raise a man, no, no.

Coming home any time at night,
Expecting you to let it ride
How many tears are you gonna cry?
Playing games like he'll never lose you

You know that the love is changed,
How many times he called you out your name?
These are the signs of a grown ass boy,
Better run for the hills,
I'm just keeping it real.

'Cause you can't raise a man.
He's already grown, what you gonna do?
You wonder why he acts like a boy.
It's 'cause he wasn't raised right before you
Girl, you ain't never gonna change nobody,
If he don't wanna, you can't make nobody.
You can't raise a man, no, no.

Gonna take more than a miracle to change him, just let him go.
Tell me when will you decide to do better with your life?
If his momma couldn't do it what makes you think
You can train that boy to be a man? It's too late.
Better off letting him go, no matter how hard you try you can't raise.

You can't raise a man.
He's already grown, what you gonna do?
You wonder why he acts like a boy.
It's 'cause he wasn't raised right before you
Girl, you ain't never gonna change nobody.
If he don't wanna, you can't make nobody.
'Cause you can't raise a man, no, no.

Ahh ah ah ahhh ah ahhh ah ah ahh

Can't raise a man
