About two weeks ago, I decided that I should go prom shopping. I'm a junior, therefore I was excited about my first high school prom. I wanted a beautiful dress because I love fashion. The only problem was that prom was three days away, and each day I had dance rehearsals until 8pm, which was late and most places were closing within 2hours when I was leaving practice. I did not believe that I could find the perfect dress in so little time. I finally found a dress shop close to my house that had a variety of nice dresses. ...
One day my senior year of high school, my friends and I decided to skip school and go to the park to play basketball. We planned to return to school at 4pm when school is dismissed. The park opened at 9am and closed at 7pm. We arrived to the park at 11am to play. When we entered the establishment we had to pay $3 to enter per person in order to play. Also the people who weren’t driving had to contribute to the gas money. We stopped playing at around 2:45 and made our way back to the school. We used ...
It was the middle of winter where the trees blew hard and reckless and I was told to go to the corner store for groceries. Before living the house I had to make a detailed list for mother and make sure I had enough money to purchase these items. On this list were the following: eggs, milk, cake pans, butter, cheese, orange juice, water, 1lb sugar, and salt, chicken legs, turkey, pie crust, and collard greens. After receiving this list from mother I headed down the rocky road full of rocks and dirt. It was a long walk but I’ve ...

You may see me struggle but you won't see me fall. Regardless if I'm weak or not I'm going to stand tall. Everyone says life is easy but truly living it is not. times get hard, people struggle and constantly get put on the spot. I'm going to wear the biggest smile even though I want to cry. I'm going to fight to live even though I'm destined to die. and even though it's hard and I may struggle through it all. you see me struggle...you will NEVER see me fall.
Dear mom, The advice you have always given me was to focus on your school first, now I know why. Every time you told me, I thought it was an excuse for you to change the subject. But now I know what you said was true because to make it in life you have to have your complete education. Now I am more determined to make my grades a whole lot better than my previous years in school.
Today, Janee wanted to go march downtown Birmingham, where all trouble happens. Mother wouldn’t let her go, for she would only allow her to go to our church and sing in the children’s choir. Mother told Janee that those white policemen would have their wild dogs and guns. But knowing Janee, she would have to find out for herself. Janee combed her hair and bathed. Then she put her white shoes and gloves on to make mama think she was content with her answer. Mama, being so naïve, thought Janee had went on to sing with the choir. I knew Janee ...
