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? Often I look back and think about my past and look at the places I have been and the things I have done. Some things I’m not proud of. Some of those things bring back vague memories. Whether they are good or bad they still come back to me. Everything we do is based upon choices. After we make those choices there comes consequences. We can never decide our consequences, they just come.…

    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.…

    The heroes’ journey teaches us to appreciate the beginning, middle and end of a person seeking to change, grow, sacrifice, kill your old self and transform. Finding their own, ambitious person by learning their strengths and weaknesses. Personally I loved this book because it helped me understand my own characteristics that have led me to come up with the concept I am introducing today. My journey has guided me through the ordinary world to coming full circle and reaching the special world in coordination with this concept. For me I have always been a warrior, magician, a shape shifter who thinks about the world in a different way because of my upbringing and adversities I have had to face as a child. My journey goes far before this paper or…

    I have had several challenges while growing up but one significant challenge that stood out to me more than the others was moving away far from my birthplace and then later moving back. Where I was raised in and where I grew up in. I hadve grown to love this city called Santa Ana where all my memories, friends, and family were, and it was difficult to leave.. It was would be hard for me to go out and communicate with others, socialize in the real world. I had to say many goodbyes to all my friends and family wondering if I'll ever see them again. It was quite far where I ended up moving to. It was a new start, a fresh start almost like a new beginning. To me it meant having to go to a new school, having to make new friends, having to accustom myself to this city where I moved to and realize it's not the same place where I had once grownew up in.…

    James is always looking for adventure. As a 5 ft 5 in, 12-year-old boy, James thought he could handle anything. Living on the miniscule island of Takeshima, Japan, James could never go further than his 123,000 square foot island that was measured by himself. Every day, after his chores were done, James would fill his precious backpack with high-tech tools that were often used by professionals during the most perilous of adventures. Then he would walk out of his house and travel every square inch of the island to see that nothing had changed and that there were no secret passages to any new land. Every day James would face the disappointment of not having his own grand adventure. It was a sad life.…
