My trip to Washington, DC was so fun and I met tons of famous people. My friends and I had so much fun together from driving to the airport and leaving the airport to go to our homes. So we went to Washington to go to an event called "Girl UP Leadership Summit." We met people from other countries and we met the U.S. Senate from Nebraska, Arkansas, and Mississippi. We wanted them to help us carry out a law that girls in other countries could go to school safely and to live in places that are sanitary. We also went to the National Museum of African American History and Culture and we saw a lot of amazing stuff about our culture, where we came from, and the Civil Rights Movement. We went to the National Mall and saw a lot of amazing museums. Then, we visited the World Bank where they keep and transfer money to other countries. Overall, we had so much fun but there were times when I was ready to go home but now, I REGRET IT.
Hey guys, I know I have been gone for a while but I am back now. Today, I am going to be talking about being an 8th grader. Being an 8th grader is fun but also stressful. You'll have challenging work and the teachers will get more tougher and tougher on you because next year, you'll begin High School. Right now I am in my 3rd term and I only have one more term until I transition into a FRESHMAN !! 8th grade has increased my vocabulary and helped my reading skills get better and better everyday. At my school, We have a new principal and he's very strict! He doesn't let us bring phones or apple watches to school. He makes sure we don't disrespect our teacher but if we do we'll get SUSPENDED! We have new rules that don't even make sense but I don't break a rule because I wouldn't want to get in serious trouble by the principal or my mom. But he's also kind, when he was helping out my reading teacher for a day and we wrote an essay he complemented me on how good my essay was. I have met new teachers and created a bond with people at my school that I have never thought I would create a bond with. My 8th grade year is going GREAT so far. I plan to make all A's on my report card before term 4. In the beginning, my 8th grade year was stressful but I managed to push through and I conquered my 1st and 2nd term. 8th grade
So my topic today is "Prom", Prom is a tradition that has been passed down for years! I didn't go to prom this year but I plan to go next year. I love how people dress up and get really pretty for prom. But the thing I don't like about prom is that they have a competition for who dresses the best. Prom is about how you have fun with your friends and the process of getting ready with your family.
I think my first prom experience would be awesome because I would have the opportunity to get really pretty rather than dressing casual on an ordinary day. I'm pretty sure my friends and I would have an awesome time together at our first prom. I would like to go to prom with a boy but I don't think my dad will let me. Most of my friends went to prom this year but I wanted to go my 8th grade year because it would be more special. To be honest with y'all I don't have many friends because of how I talk. I lose my friends because they do things behind my back and not in my face.
Prom is a beautiful thing that anyone could be able to do. But I don't want anyone to think that they aren't able to go because of how many friends they have. My and I will have the best time of our lives. My teacher says you can't be anyone's friend if you don't show yourself friendly. Your prom should be an amazing thing coming up or passed already don't let anyone determine your destiny.
Some of the things boys do they don’t do it well. Boys just don’t cherish the things you do for them anymore. I have had the experience with a boy that don’t even care about me or how I felt. He just cared about if he was single or not. Most things boys do they do it because us girls force them to do it. Boys aren’t just as important to me anymore. Yes, I hang around boys but they aren’t important to me anymore. I rather be successful in school than to be successful in a relationship.
Sometimes you’ll have to cut your closest friends off to be successful in school. I sometimes hold all of my feelings in to show someone I care about them and I have bad things going on in my life too. If you don't like the way boys treat you I think you should tell them why you don't like that and that they shouldn't do that anymore. My mom told me that boys don't grow up that fast so you'll have to adapt to him. They just don't catch fast as us girls it takes time for them to learn what to do and what not to do.
Boys don't think they should do the things that they do but if you want to keep that person with you and only you, You should think about how she feels. These days boys only care about their came and how their hair looks. They don't think about a girlfriend until they see their friends with a girlfriend. But just think about how that you'll feel if somebody breaks up with you and rubs it in your face. It hurts very badly and just because we say we don't need him, sometimes it doesn't always be true some of us girls fall in love and doesn't wanna lose that person. But just know when that one boy comes around make sure he treats you right.
Today I'm going to talk about the word “Gay.” People use this word everyday at my school and I think that it's unnecessary for people to be bullied like that. The most known people to use that word are Boys. Boys use that word because they aren't used to being around people like that. They are used to people that are tough and strong like Spartans. People say Gay because they don't know any other word to define that person. But little do they know that Gay means Happy.
If anyone says “You Gay,” Tell then I know because gay means happy not that you like the same gender as you. Maybe you might be the one saying “You Gay”, you probably should think about what you are saying and how you are saying it. Gay isn't always a bad word but at my school is you call someone Gay you'll get in serious trouble, You might even get suspended because that's bullying. I'm not going to fabricate I have called someone Gay and when you do that you feel super bad inside. You feel guilty of what you did and what you had said to that person.
Boys say that word because they know if they say it they'll have more boys agreeing with him that opposing him. Sometimes I wonder where did the word “Gay” come from the word is so common now that you can't go through one class at school without someone saying Gay. I Hate The Word Gay but if you decide to call someone that that's your business. But listen to me suggest that you shouldn't say that cause you might hurt someone's feelings and they might not take it as a joke and they might commit suicide and succeed. So to sum it all up, you shouldn't use the word Gay to define someone.
If you're not that old you shouldn't be worried about a relationship but know it might be time to start to think about it. You might not be old enough to have a girlfriend or boyfriend but think about the people that do. They have to stress about if their partner is cheating or it might just be you being you being jealous. Sometimes kids at a young age doesn't know what love means or how and when to say "I Love You!" young kids will just throw those words around. Sometimes you'll have to learn to trust them. You have to trust them when times get rough and you get a little jealous.
Encourage you should encourage your partner because they might need the help after a rough day or they might just wanna hear your voice. You shouldn't change for anybody but if you feel like you might need to change your attitude for them but not your personality. Sometimes you'll want to have a boyfriend for the respect from your friends. But that's not really what they are for. They're for loving you and one day even marrying you. You shouldn't talk down on a person during a relationship if a doesn't work it just doesn't work.
The main thing to be in a relationship is to be reliable you'll have to be reliable when your partner isn't feeling the mood you are. But sometimes you'll have to cheer him or her up when they are feeling down. The person you're dating shouldn't be worried about if you're going to be there with them you should be there 24/7 if they need you or if you need them. My issue is that little kids have boyfriends and girlfriends at a young age and they really don't know whether they're good for them or not. But to sum it all up, Relationships are too Much especially if you're young stay young don't Grow Up To Fast.
The moment I type in hair it seems to me that only white people appear. I think that's an example of discrimination because only white people appear and not African-American. To find African-American hair types you´ll have to type in black girls hair. But sometimes they'll appear with braids or a wig instead of their real hair. Also but sometimes they'll appear if they are famous African-Americans. That's kind of wrong to me because black girls have beautiful hair as well whether they are famous or not.
This is discrimination because only white people appear when I type in hair. White people look at their hair if it's so beautiful and black people look at their hair if its beautiful as well but others don't.Your hair isn't everything but you'll always have to look at the good side of your hair. The only reason the internet does that is because of hair types. Just because black girls have nappy or short hair that doesn't mean that they aren't as beautiful.
Sometimes you might not think your hair is beautiful but it is. Even though your hair might not be long or puffy your hair always means something. Sometimes people may not have the "good hair" but your hair is always beautiful. Your hair may not be brown or blue or whatever color you like but you'll grow out of it. Hair isn't always the best thing to talk about but always remember that your hair is beautiful whether you like it or not.
My life 6 years from now would be great. I would be applying for colleges and hopefully I would go to my dream college Mississippi Valley State University. I want to be a singer and an entrepreneur of homeless people because I want to help the homeless have someplace to live I also want to be so successful that I am able to take care of my parents as well. My mother is the perfect role model; she takes care of her children and herself.
Six years later, I want to lead my life with entrepreneur. The major things in my life is to stay focus on your work and taking care of myself. My lifestyle isn't so great right now but I promise I will take that and turn into greatness. The most important thing about my life is my family and I promise to take care of them when I get the chance to do so. I hope my life turns out great and I want to to help my own children ( if I have some) and take care of them if I ever get the chance.
My life wouldn't be complete without my parents they've helped me through all of my questions and all of the problems . They have helped me with all of the things that i've needed help me and they have asked me a thousand times have you already made the Superintendent List and they always helped me with my homework. My life will turn into a great thing for a lifetime I hope.
My life in Clarksdale is full of drama. I'm surrounded by girls getting pregnant at a young age and boys joining gangs.My mom helps me not to get involved in those things Sometimes I wanna know why my mom doesn't wanna move. I just think she wants the best for us. My mom isn't the best person to ask for advice from but she still could helps me with some of the problems that I have. But my self- esteem will never go down or I will never lose self- esteem.
My grandma is 63 years old and she's so wise. She helps me with everything I need help with. She knows about everything especially,sewing. My Grandma means the world to me. My grandma helps me with all of my bad problems and the baddest moments in my life.She knows what to do if i'm not feeling like being bothered she helps me get into the mood and she makes me happy. My grandma always says " I Love You and Nothing Can Stop That." My grandma is my everything but if anything happens to my grandma I don't know what I would do. My mom is 35 years old and she helps me with all of the homework and projects. She cares about me and my siblings because we are her only children of course she has sisters and brothers but, she loves spending time with us. She knows how I feel and when I feel that way she soothes the pain and helps me get through it . When I don't want her to help she still helps. My mom always says, " I took my time to make you but don't let anybody break you."
If you look at it my life is pretty great with the help of my mom and grandma they always know just what to do and when to do it to sum it all up my life is really great. My friends are great, my family is great but most of all I turned out to be GREAT!!
