The goals that I have set for myself this school year are, I want to try to be more positive than I usually am, towards sports, school work, homework, and myself. I want to learn about others, make a lot more friends. I want to open myself to my friends so they can get to know me as well. I have practice every day of the week including Saturdays, then after practice I go see my grandparents because I usually don’t see during the week. My classes this semester were not that difficult but next semester I’m going to...

My first semester

As the fall semester of the 2016-2017 school year comes to an end, I am extremely shocked at how fast it has passed and a bit disappointed. I am disappointed because I feel that I wont like my classes next semester. This semester my classes were pretty chill, and I really liked the people in them. My classes included journalism, AP English, AP Spanish, BIM, and physics. I did not take the STAAR this semester, although it’s an easy test I’m not looking forward to testing in a few months. This semester was full of...

In the short months of school starting, first semester is coming to an end. We still have less than a week until second semester. I am not excited for that. I like my first semester classes, I only have one academic. However, in my second semester schedule, I am taking three academics. Guess who is going to be stressed out? If you guessed me, then you’re absolutely right! Honestly can’t wait for that. I’m pretty sure that I will not be that stressed out, but I won’t deny the fact that I am not ready for the seco...

November 29's journal topic, "If you were to give Mr. Webber a journal topic, what would it be? Please explain," brought forth a number of very interesting responses. Normally I don't read journal responses but I had to read this one, and what I read surprised me. About one-third to one-half of answers involved asking me to discuss teaching in general, or teaching journalism in particular. Some of those wanted to know how I liked being a teacher, or how I ended up as a journalism teacher. All were excellent responses,...

August 22, 2016, was the day I started my junior year. The night before it was really hard for me to go to sleep, eventually I did. That morning my mom came and woke me up and I did. I was super nervous for that day. Eventually it was time for me to go to school. When I got to school it was okay then I got to the cafeteria and things went downhill. I’m not going to go into detail but it just wasn’t a good start. By the time first period started I was fine and in second period I was fine then lunch came and some...
