Twin Day, or Should I Say, Different Day…
Posted on May 4th, 2011 at 2:05 pm by vivienb and
Today was twin day and my friend and I dressed up as modern day “Gangsters.” The plain white baggy tee, baggy jeens, sneeks, and a “Bling gold Chain.” I guess you can say were the kind of kids who are more “preppy” aside from most kids. I don’t go to school in sweat pants, ever, so we did this as a joke to see how people would react.
WOW. That’s all I have to say to this day… Wow. I walked in and no one could even take me seriously. They acted like I barely excited throughout the school hours; like I wasn’t even inportent. Let me just ask you this question; why must I come to school everyday dressed up while girls are sitting down in there pajama pants learning getting the same respect, and one day when I dress down, I get no respect. It’s like people ecspet so much from me and my apperience, it’s scary. Even my friend said, Vivien, what in the world are you wearing? I did’nt wanna be mean but she wears pj pants everyother day almost. These smirks, looks, and comments hurt me because this is a joke what I’m wearing, and yet people actaully dress like this, why can’t I and still be taken seriously?
I couldn’t be more.

“She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah“
So powerful, so meaningful. I have chills

Bad day, rainy day
You’re not good enough, rainy day
Tired, rainy day
Never going to be the best, rainy day
Bad mood, rainy day
Selfesh, rainy day
I don’t care, rainy day
There’s a reason why I act so strong when I don’t need to. I’ve been raised like that. Not by my parents but the past excperiences I’ve been in. Kids made me strong. I laugh when some people call me weird for that, but truth is, they don’t really know me then. The real me is almost scared. I’ll never let anyone see me cry, but that doesn’t mean I don’t cry. I just wish people would be nice to eachother.

I read the section, The Opposition, and I think my book does a good job giving it a pretty good chunk of information, but of course, like anything, there can always be more information about the topic given.
I would have stated that as the war continued, New England Federalists maintained their opposition. But this is not to say the region as a whole opposed the national war effort. Much of the financing and a substantial portion of the army and navy came from the region. Elbridge Gerry, the Vice President, and William Eustis, the secretary of war, hailed from Massachusetts. I would change it by giving more names of the people supporting this whole idea. (Henry Clay and John Calhoun pushed a declaration of war through Congress, stressing a short war had the added benefit of permitting the United States to grab valuable farmlands in the British colony of Canada. Vehement protests erupted in those parts of the country where the opposition Federalist political party held sway, especially in Connecticut and Massachusetts.) That is some more information that is importent that should be including in this text book.
To make this more interesting, I would brake it down more. I would give bullets and or stars to make it more easy to locate. I would also use smaller, and easier words to understand. Highlighting color on key facts I would also do if I were to be the editor, so therefore note taking would be easier.
Just for me;

I’m sorry I’m not perfect; I know I’m not, but the old saying; “know one can be perfect,” people have seem to forgot about that these days.
Every little thing I do it’s not good enough, schools like a jungle, you have to be at the top of the food chain in order to survive. Okay; I’m not that weird as you probaly think from reading this, but I’m surely not even close to “perfect.” Everyone switches their personality for someone knew, so it’s like their all fake. Hard plastic, fake. I talk to one person, she acts so nice, and then she comes along and leaves me to be friends with someone else, in an all knew personality. F a k e.
-You probaly think, well why don’t you just act like them? Answer is because I don’t want to stoop to that level. I don’t want people to know me as f a k e. I’m my own person, whether people like it or not. I don’t mind sitting at my lunch table by my self in my own world blasting Eminem “Beautiful” on, because while people are looking at me like I’m crazy, I’m smiling inside.
In 10 years I’m gonna be living on my own, not thinking of anyone I know now at school, they won’t matter. All that matters is that I study, so I make something from myself.
So they say, School is a jungle; stay at the top of the food chain, or your gonna be eaten.
“All I do is wanna make peace with everyone.”

Mary Adelaide Nutting, born on 1858 to 1948, was a very famous American nursing educator and writer. In 1889, she went to Baltimore to enter the first class of the Johns Hopkins Hospital Training School for Nurses. After graduating in 1891, she served as a head nurse at the school. In 1894, she became the school’s principal. Nutting did this until 1907. That year, she joined the faculty of Teachers College at Columbia University in New York City and became the world’s first professor of nursing. She wrote A Sound Economic Basis for Nursing, with Lavinia Dock the first two volumes of the four-volume History of Nursing, and wrote many articles for nursing and health matters. In 1934 she was named honorary president of the Florence Nightingale International Foundation, and in 1944 the National League of Nursing Education created the Mary Adelaide Nutting Medal in her honor and awarded it to her that year. She died in White Plains, New York, 1948.

Do great leaders make history? Or does history make great leaders?” What does this mean? This basically means, “Is Obama going to make our time better, or does our time make Obama better?” Sounds tricky right? I believe great leaders make history because think of all the leaders we had. The great ones made our history great. You know, the ones we read about in our social studies book. But the bad leaders make our history dreadful, so it has the “oppesite effect.” Hopefully our president currently, Obama, will make our history worth all the changes and progress. So, answering the question, I chose the first choice, Great leaders make history.
Which do you believe?
Martin Luther King Jr

Martin Luther King Jr is my favorite leader of all time. He had so many leadership characteristics, but three of them would be bravery, inteligent, and and loyal. He was brave when he had the power to lead marches against segregation and didn’t back down even after being arrested. He was loyal when he did not give up fighting for people, and he never hated. He was loyal to his friends and family. He was intelligent to step in front of many many people and say his “I have a dream speech.” He really did change the oppertunities and rights for people of color and he truly is an insperation.
Who’s Your Leader?
Posted on January 12th, 2011 at 4:30 pm by vivienb and
Many people think of the word leader as something so powerful and so worshiped, but many people don’t understand is that they, at some points them selves are leaders too. Leaders have to be strong, have to be confident in order to lead. Leaders are both made and born. For instance, think of the King and Queen, they are born to be leaders; but then again, we have Martin Luther King, a person of color, who know one back then thought he was even worth looking at, and now, he is thought as one of the best leaders in our time.
I my self was a leader at one point of my life. I led my dance class when I was about 8 because my dance teacher saw how much I wanted to stand out. I follow a leader every day in my life. It’s called school. I have to go to school and listen to my teachers, but they lead us, so they are leaders.Anybody can be a leader if they put all there effort into it. They can not take advantage of it though, because that is when we go into “dictatorship.” That’s when someone can lead, but use it on the wrong or cruel way. An example would be Hitlor. I do concider myself a leader because I do not follow other people around if I don’t like them like they are the president. I am independent and fee-willing. I do not let anyone take advantage of me, so therefore I am pretty strong. So remember, anyone can be, a leader.
