Personal Narrative: My Hero's Journey

Satisfactory Essays
Well my hero’s journey starts off in the summer where I made my switch to LVCP, LVCP is a school in livermore california. The reason I made my switch to LVCP was due to my parents wanting me to have a better life in Livermore rather than in a Hayward school, where I would get distracted and not do my work. On Friday, August 21th, the day of Orientation, my journey began. I was enthusiastic and skittish at the time but also a little sad because i knew my summer had come to an end. I could feel the butterflies in my stomach move around as we getting closer and closer to my future high school. Finally, I had reached my destination LVCP. The first thing that popped out when I stepped foot on campus was seeing the painting in the front of the …show more content…
Feeling happy because it was my first day of high school, sad because I had no friends especially since I lived in San Lorenzo and knew nothing about Livermore or just mad because it was school. In addition to having mixed emotions I did not have any friends, thus making it worse for me.
One of my biggest challenges was making friends and the climate in LVCP. The reason it was hard for me making friends, was because I lived in San lorenzo and I went to school all the way in Livermore and knew nothing about this city. Another reason why coming to LVCP was a challenge because the climate was terrible well for me. I never thought that Livermore can go up to 100+ degrees fahrenheit and I was never used to climates with such scorching feelin. The climate in livermore one time got me sick for how hot it got. One of my biggest challenges was making friends, But yes there was something that helped me overcome that was my soccer ball by bringing it to school. The reason a soccer ball is important, being something so simple, but to my eyes is a huge part of my friendships. I was no longer shy, it helped me overcome it. I went from not making friends to me showing off my skills by doing what I love to do and that is to play

    Have you ever wondered where you would be if you would have chosen another path? Have you ever wondered how that choice could have changed your life if you would have made it?

    Halstead learned that he could not guide a client’s behavior. He learned that he could be an effective counselor by listening to Steve’s problems and to “share in the pain (Halstead, 2000).” Another big idea that probably affected Halstead’s counseling methods is that we should not incorporate our client’s pain and suffering into our own minds. By doing this, we risk the…

    My first day on the hill was overwhelming! To begin with I was awakened at six in the morning to a day full of packing, loading up my best friend’s SUV, and a very long drive to Normal, Al. I then realized that I was actually leaving off for college! I do not know why but, I had a serious case of the butterflies. There was no way that I was nervous about anything; I was just soo anxious of what was to come that I seemed like a kindergartner on their first day of school. When I drove up to my dorm, I was swarmed by at least three hundred girls whom I was to share this building with. Getting away from my parents was the best feeling ever. My parents will not be here to tell me ar when to sleep, when to eat, when to come home, and where I should be. Those are the main reasons why I love my new college life.…

    Throughout our lives, we all go through a fairly similar story where we start off making our own ordinary world full of predictability and comfort, that we all eventually get taken or drawn away from. Many will attempt to refuse this call to adventure, and many others will have no choice and get tossed into an unknown, difficult world. In this new world, we’ll have to go through at least one supreme ordeal, if not much more, being hindered by our own demons and by the demons of others, and getting help from allies. We'll go through various tests and learn crucial lessons from all of the mistakes we'll make along the way. This story we go through is professionally referred to as the Hero's Journey and my older brother, Preston, is a terrific…
