Always be happy no matter what

Dr. Rebecca Hains

For several weeks, an eighth-grade boy outside of Kansas City has been expressing his individuality by carrying a floral-print Vera Bradley purse. But yesterday, his assistant principal demanded he remove it. The boy refused, and he was immediately suspended from school.

This raises a question: Why is it a problem for a boy to carry a purse instead of a backpack if he wants to? By breaking gender stereotypes, he’s not hurting anyone. Instead, he’s showing the world that he has good self-esteem and self-confidence—that he is secure his identity.

Unfortunately, his school administrators’ actions show that they want to force a 13-year-old kid into stereotypical masculinity. Apparently, they value gender conformity over creativity and individuality.

My Summer

Image  It has been a long time since I blog but I´m back. My summer has had its ups and downs. Today I´m let you in my life just a little. I´m tell you a little bit of what I have been going through this summer. This summer for me has been awesome but also a little bad. I´m tell you the bad part then the awesome part you can let me know what you think on your comments and I´ll try to respond back as fast as I can. The bad news is that I got sick for 3 days but luck I have been getting better because of some medicine I´ve been taking. If my grandma didn´t take me to the doctors I wonder how I would be right now. But since I´ve been taken the medicine my pain has gone away and I just hope it doesn´t come back. Now the awesome news is that I am having a great summer with my family and I hope I am able to come back soon maybe to celebrate my quinceañera. This summer I went to the beach and the pool with family and friends I had so much fun. I just wish everybody is having a great summer and I also want to tell you to enjoy it because soon we are going to start to go to school and like others start going to work. I wish everybody a great summer.

My Role Model

Role Models

Who is your role model? My role model is my mom because she has gone through a lot just for my sister and me. She had to take care of us and she struggled a lot with my sister and me when we were little. My mom struggled because she couldn’t speak English when she first came to Washington, DC. She had no family here. All she had was my dad, and I am happy she is my mother.

My mother has been a great support in my life. When we were small she helped us in our homework. She would tell our teacher that we can’t get the homework and that she was sorry that we hadn’t completed our homework. My mom would stay downstairs with us doing the homework. When we didn’t understand, we would start to cry and she would be there with us crying along with us. She is always nice to us and she tells us what is right and what is wrong to do in life. Some years have passed and we have been getting help from my mom. She has still tried to help us if we can’t understand. She has been a great mother. I love that she is always there for us and that she most only wants us to see her as our mother but as our friend too.

I am happy that she has been here for me. I hope that she will be here for me when I get older, graduate college and have a job. I am thankful for what my mother has done for my sister and me. I will never forget what she has done for us. I will make her happy by doing my best to continue getting good grades. My mom is the best person in the world for me because without her I wouldn’t have gotten this far in life. I love her a lot.

My role model is my mom. I will be thankful for the rest of my life. I will tell her that she is my role model. If you have a role model, then tell them. They might appreciate the things you say. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and tell them!

Grades     How can you improve your grades? Well I can improve my grades in many ways. One way is by studying really hard on my tests. I would review all of my notes for the test. Also I would take my test book home for I can review the lessons that the test is going to be on. I would work on some of the problems to see if I can be able to work on them. I would make up some problems and see if I can work them out. This is one way I can improve my grades.

This is another way I can improve my grades. It is by get help on the lesson or subject I need help on. I would go tell the teacher if I can get extra help on the lesson/subject. I would ask if she can give me extra work on the lesson/subject. The other way I can improve my grades is by turning in the works I have missed to turn in. I would turn in the assignments and tests that I was not able to do. That way I would not have low grades. These are two ways I can improve my grades.

These are the last two things I can do to improve my grades. The first one is by putting the greatest effort on my work. I would always be neat and write neatly for they can understand what I am writing.  The last way I can improve my grades is by completing the assignments on time. I would give my assignments to my teacher before I leave the classroom. I would give my projects to the teacher when they are due that way I can have a good grade. This is how I can improve my grades.

Now that you have read how I can improve my grades. You should start thinking how you can improve your grades. This is very important because with good grades you might be able to get to programs that not anyone can get in. Also because with good grades you can apply to a good university or college or maybe get a scholar ship. Last but not least with good grades you can get a good future with a good job.  This is why you need to improve your grades.  So why don’t you take a little bit of time to think what you need to do to improve your grades. You will be grateful when you do.

New Year's Eve Resolution List        Should we do a list of our New Year’s Eve resolution? I do a list of my New Year’s Eve resolution. I am going to start by working on my shyness and public speaking. I need to work on my shyness because I have to get over it because it may hold be back on so many things and opportunities I may have in life. That’s why I need to work on my shyness. I need to work on my public speaking because I need to be able to speak in front of a crowd because when I get older I will have to talk in front of people. When I talk in front of people I get nervous. This is why I need to work on my public speaking.

These are some other New Year’s Eve resolutions. One of them is that I need to work on my drawing skills because I like to draw. For my drawing skills I need to work on how to how to draw the forms of certain shapes. The other skill I need to work on is still-life drawing. I need to work on still-life drawing because I am not able to draw an object that well and I sometimes can’t get the details or forms rights. This is why need to work on my drawing skills. The other thing I need to work on is my writing in Spanish. I need to work on that because sometimes I need to translate some stuff for my family members and they want me to write it in Spanish. I tell them I can’t that is when I have to explain it to them but I can’t write the explanation for them. This is why I need to work on my writing in Spanish.

These are the last two things on my New Year’s Eve resolution list. It is reading Spanish. I need to be able to read in Spanish because I want to be able to read it fluently without stuttering and knowing what I am reading. I try sometimes but I don’t try always. Sometimes my mom asks me to read some words in Spanish but it is hard for me because I don’t know how to pronounce the words. This is why I need to learn how to read in Spanish. The other thing I need to work on is entering on some sports or curricular activities. I need to because I want to be able to try some new things. I also want to be more active. This is why I need to work on entering some sports or curricular activities.

This is my New Year’s Eve Resolution list. I think this is very helpful because it will help you work on the things you want to do. It can help you accomplish some of them for the New Year. You will be proud because you were able to accomplish them. I am going to be proud when I start working on them and accomplish some of them. I am going to be proud when I finish the list. I think many people like the idea of a New Year’s Eve resolution list. If you like the idea then start making your list.
