It may sound surprising, but school has actually helped me make it through this year. Some of the teachers are cool and nice and without school, I wouldn’t have any friends. Every summer there’s a part of me that kind of wants to go back to school because I miss everything that happened throughout the course of the year. The teachers are one of the best parts about school. Especially the nice and cool one’s. Unfortunately, this year I only have 2 cool teachers. The rest of my teachers either don’t like me or they give a ton of work. School is what made me who I am. School created my life as it is right now. I’ve always hated on a few teachers this year because of how much work they gave, but I realize towards the end of the year, that it’s for our own good. I realize how much I’ve been prepped. School is what made me like half of the things on this project. I’m actually glad that I go to school because I would be a no-life loser without school. I especially love projects from our classes. I always find a way to make the project more fun for myself. For example, the film project I did for ELA. But school isn’t always fun for me. I sometimes get picked on because of my height and sometimes I don’t even know why I get picked on. But I just shrug it off because there’s nothing I can do about it. Overall, school is pretty great.
Memes have been the main reason why I get distracted a lot from homework and schoolwork. But it helps me through the day. It cheers me up whenever I’m sad and memes are the source of my humor. Honestly, I don’t know why memes are so funny. They’re pretty dumb but sometimes they’re relatable. I also like memes that are about things I like. Like Rick and Morty. There was once a meme about Szechuan sauce because Rick and Morty had brought it up in season 3 episode 1. I loved that meme and I even made some Szechuan sauce because everyone on the internet had been saying it was the best thing they’ve ever tasted. I go a long way for memes. Memes are sometimes annoying too. If I see a meme that’s overused and it’s not funny at all, I’ll hate it. It’s just a bad meme. It doesn’t deserve to be called a meme. The thing I like about memes are that they’re diverse. There are different types of memes. Memes practically show what your sense of humor is like. Most of my friends like memes too. Jesse likes memes a lot more than I do and that’s saying something. I am friends with people who are similar to me or who I aspire to be. Memes distract me a bit too much though. Once I start reading some memes I stop 15 mins later and then I keep going back to read more.
T.V. shows have probably helped me out the most this year. There were so many good t.v. shows this school year and I loved it. Some t.v. shows I watched this year were Parks and Rec, Rick and Morty, The Flash, Stranger Things, and Attack on Titan. They’re all great t.v. shows. These t.v. shows distract from the real problem in my life which is school. This may not sound good because it isn’t. I binge watch shows that I like but it’s a good thing that I don’t watch many shows. All of these shows are so good I can’t decide which one is my favorite. T.v. shows are what created me. That’s what my personality is mostly based off of. Whatever the characters show, I show for a short period of time. That’s only because I aspire to be them. They’re cool characters that I wish I were. These characters are practically the one’s making my decisions. In Rick and Morty the creators came out with the first episode of season 3 on April Fool’s. I can’t even explain how good it was. It was the perfect combination of comedy, and action. T.v. shows also make me feel better about the real world. If everything's not going great for me, t.v. shows can cheer me up because I get sucked into the t.v. show. I don’t know what’s happening in the outside world while I’m watching the show. All I can think about is what’s happening in the t.v. show. It takes my mind off the bad things in life and puts it on the good side of things.
One of my favorite sports is ping pong. Ping Pong has never really interested me until this year. At the beginning of the year I had started going to the ping pong club and that's when I realized how fun ping pong really was. I have to give a lot of credit to my good friends Jesse and Jason. Jesse had let me borrow his paddles and he is really the one who got me into ping pong in the first place. Jason has a ping pong table in his house and whenever I went over, we always played ping pong. I was slowly progressing and had become better and better each time I played. The video where Bruce Lee was playing ping pong amazed me. I had seen it a while ago and it was the first ping pong video I had seen. Bruce Lee was my hero and still is. His skill just amazes me. He played ping pong with nunchucks. I can barely play well with a normal paddle and he somehow pulls it off. I've always been amazed by Bruce Lee's skill. Another one of my favorite sports is badminton. Recently, there was a badminton tournament in the gym after school. The tournament was a 2 vs 2 and I was with one of my best friends, Sanchiv. We were beasts. We demolished through the tournament but eventually we had been defeated. We had gotten 3rd and it had started off with over 20 teams. I was impressed and didn’t think we would be able to make it that far. Sadly the prize was a can of Pringles but I took what I can get. It was disappointing at first but then I realized how much better we were than a lot of people. I also go to the gym most days after school just to play badminton with my friends. Over the course of the year, I have gotten much better at badminton. I started off rusty because I hadn’t played for over 3 years. I couldn’t even hit the birdie. All my friends would make fun of me but now I’m pretty sure I’m better than most of them. Without these sports this year, school wouldn’t have been as much fun and school would be much more painful than it already is (no offense).
This song is by far the best and funniest song I've heard in a long time. I found it recently and it makes me laugh no matter what situation I'm in. The auto tune of the song is just so bad that it makes it funny. He's also off the beat of the song half the time which makes it a lot funnier. This may not seem very significant but this song has changed my mood many times and may have impacted my life greatly. Whenever I'm sad or mad I listen to this song and it lightens my mood. I may not have the best sense of humor but I do have a good taste in music. Music makes me feel good and it inspires me to do work and stop procrastinating. Music also calms me down and helps me concentrate. If I'm in a confused state, I can listen to music to focus myself or straighten my thoughts out. Music helps me stay focused on what I’m doing. For example, if I’m not doing my work, I can listen to music and it will help me focus on my homework. I’ve found many different types of songs over the years and D4NNY’s song is one of my favorites. Not that I like it in taste, but it’s just great and it makes me crack up everytime I listen to it. There’s a few amount of songs that I really like. I don’t really like rap unless it’s Eminem and I don’t really know what genre of music I like. I don’t dance to music either. I just find that weird and I don’t want to be weird.
I chose the topic of friends for my curation project because friends are one of the many things that make me happy. Since my curation project is 7 things that made me happy this year, I chose to talk about my friends. My friends are goofy, weird, and sometimes stupid people. But that's why I like them. They're not generic and they all give me a good time whenever I'm around them. My friends have helped me throughout this year. This year was pretty tough but my friends made it better for me. They do make fun of me sometimes but that's the best part. We make fun of each other and no one gets their feelings hurt. You start growing an immunity to insults. My friends are special to me in many ways and keep me company when I need it most. Playing sports with my friends or watching a movie is still fun. Even if we're not talking I like their company because they make me feel comfortable. Not everyone can be as lucky as me to have such great friends. That is a great example of how we are mean to each other but we don't care. Sometimes I need to take a break from school and other things so I could always go to my friends. And that's why friends are so great.
Superheroes have always made me happy as a child and it still makes me happy. No matter if it's a comic, TV show, or movie they just make me feel good. They make me feel comfortable. The Superheroes sometimes motivate me to try in things and helps me get better at certain things. For example running. My favorite superhero/villain is The Flash or Godspeed. Both are speedsters and I wish I could acquire their speed. I've always found speed in everything really cool. That's why I likes a lot of cars and planes when I was little. I do have some favorite super villains too. My favorite is by far Arkham Knight. Arkham Knight just looks really cool and I was obsessed with his suit at one point. All these superheroes and villains both make me feel comfortable and happy and that's one of the many things that's helped me throughout this year. Reading comics is one of the most relaxing things I can do since school sometimes stresses me out a lot. And once I start a comic and I get the whole collection if I like it. I have the whole Arkham Knight comic collection which explains his backstory and his adventures. I mainly judge the superheros I like based on how cool they look. I have a lot of superhero games on my xbox too. I plan on getting more in the future. I have Batman: Arkham Knight, Lego Marvel, and I plan on getting Injustice 2 over the summer. These games are what created my love for a lot of super heroes. Movies also create some love but also hate. If movies are bad, I instantly trash the hero. Unless it is a good hero. For example, Justice League. The trailer looks atrocious and the heroes look like trash. I don’t like how the heroes are portrayed and the CGI in the movie looks horrible. Heroes help me strive to do my best because I want to be like them or the closest possible thing a human can be to a superhero.
