Masterpiece Academy Essay
Since the beginning of the school year, we began to slack off more and more as the year progressed. Some people may call it a form of “senioritus” or some people may call it a form of just not caring. Or both. But typically, the students must earn the trust of the teacher, which in this case we failed to do. Some students have not yet done some of the literature analysis from the beginning of the year. How is the teacher supposed to trust someone that cant even complete a simple assignment as that. Some of the students do deserve the trust, but they earned it, by simply completing these assignments on time.
Lately, I have been working on my masterpiece. I am very passionate for helping other people. For example, if I see a person being bullied at school, I am the type of person that steps in to defend person. And that is why I chose my masterpiece to be about law enforcement. I will continue my learning on the field by going to college and applying for the police academy when I turn 21. As my career gets longer and I continue to go up the ladder I would like to become either a detective or even the security for the president of the United States of America.
Something about this course that I found completely hilarious was Austin’s stand up comedy. His tone of voice that he talks in is funny and his face expressions that he makes to finish off a scene make the joke twice as funny. A part where he could improve on include walking up on stage and just being himself because it seems as if he’s already written the script so it would make it funnier if he was being himself.
A simple theme that goes through 5 presentations is motivation. Something that all have in common is that we aren’t motivated. Motivation is something that doesn’t come on its own. You have to find it. And when you discover your motivation from inside you must grab it and never let go. In Billy and Elizabeth’s presentation, they mentioned that in coaching, patience is key. Because learning in general requires time. The point that I’m trying to make is that once you do find your motivation to get something done, you will do whatever it takes to get it done.
As of right now, I don’t consider myself a hero. But soon I will be because whoever helps save lives is considered to be a hero. I have not found my mentor but I’ve had one since the day I was born. She’s led me down the right path and given me advice whether it was with sports or school. This mentor is my own mother. And with her help we both conquered a challenge that we both thought would never happen. I am on my way to college and obviously we both have returned enlightened.
