Junior High
My Junior High years were filled with ups and downs. Now I don’t remember much from my junior high years, but I do remember my first homecoming dance in my seventh grade. I also remember when I first joined band in sixth grade. Ever since sixth grade I could not separate myself from band. Band is my home away from home and I hold it fondly in my heart. Another memory from band is my first parade. Through my junior high life, I slowly gained confidence especially after I picked up a trumpet.
My first story is my first homecoming dance, which was fun. I did not know how to dress for that kind of dance, and I decided that I would try to look nice and put on some heeled sandals a red skirt and a tank top. At that point, I did not know that I liked to dance, and I just stayed in the corner, too shy to come out of it. I danced terribly that night,

Brown, we didn’t march we rode on the float and on my first year I was on the edge of the float. But, even though I was nervous, I just went with the flow. At first, when we started loading up I was just staring down at the edge and thinking about all the ways I could fall off. But when we started playing, I didn’t worry anymore and I just played my little heart out and enjoyed the float. After that performance, I had an immense amount of confidence in myself, and had decided that I was going to try to be the best trumpet in my section. Within three years of playing trumpet I could reach a High A. All of these stories have a common theme of me gaining confidence; in all my years of junior high and high school self-confidence got me through them.. I always want to reach higher and higher especially in band. Band is my life. and I don’t think I would be able to handle high school without it. Junior high was filled with lots of ups and downs but I got through it. Junior high and high school are the times of your life when you find yourself and your style enjoy them and do your best.

However, during junior high I found it difficult to figure out where I fit in because I always seemed to be the oddball out. Sadly my school was somewhat segregated, unintentionally that is, and I honestly struggled to find out who Steven Thompson was in the midst of these crazy three years we call junior high. Whenever I entered high school I can say that I truly found out who I was and embraced my individuality. When I finally…

    Angeron Robin White English 101 5T September 14, 2012 Realizing My Motivation It was during my 7th grade year that I decided upon my answer to the age-old question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Being that it was my first year at a junior high school, I was a little intimidated. I wasn’t fond of making new friends, so I stuck with the people I already knew from the year before. Jonathan, one of my closer friends, was as introverted as I was. He wasn’t looking for a whole lot of attention…

Most schools nights I would not be able to start my hefty pile of homework until 8 o'clock. Many nights the strenuous assignments given…

    Site Council meetings at my high school along with other Associated Study Body (ASB) members, our principal, school administrators, parents, and teachers. Frequently it was brought up that minorities were not as involved in our school as majority groups. ASB has always been dominated by white students and as a Latina, I found it very intimidating when I joined. When I looked into why my school’s ASB was dominated by one race, I realized that it stems from junior high. A big difference between…
