Something that makes me proud to be at Eagle Butte is that we have many successful sports teams. Our school has a very good name associated with being very sports-men like and polite when we are at tournament and hosting. It feels good to know that coaches know us for always being very polite and the fact that we have that type of name for our athletes is impressive.
In my opinion being anonymous online isn’t a good idea. You can get yourself into a lot of trouble being anonymous online, the fact that you can hide behind a screen and think that no one can find out who you are gives people some sort of confidence to say things they shouldn’t. They think that they can say whatever they want when the truth is if you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face you shouldn’t be saying it behind the screen. It really bothers me that when people can hide behind the safety of a screen and that’s the only way they can say things when they would never say it to anyone’s face.
In my family I wouldn’t say we really have any traditions that really stick out. But every year we get together with my moms and dads side of the family and it switches every year between families about who we spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with. We all takes turns having it at everyone houses. I guess something we always do with my dads side of the family is we do gag gifts. Basically everyone buys a gift for $20 and we put all the gifts in the middle and everyone picks a number and you choose a gift and you have the chance to switch it for something else that someone has. You only get 3 trades though. I really have always enjoyed this.
My most impactful learning moment was to never take stairs for granted. Stairs are supposed to support you going up and down but they failed because I just went down and they certainly did not catch me. I missed one stair, just one and managed to break 3 bones in my foot. This has faced me with many challenges and you never really understand how hard day to day things become on one foot. This has made me realize how weak I am. But the only good thing about this experience is I don’t have to take the bus.
I recently haven’t watched any movies because honestly I really don’t watch movies, I just don’t have whole lot of time to do so. But I really enjoy the tv series called Riverdale. It is has an interesting plot and you always have to be thinking about what’s going to happen next. I think this would appeal to any type of audience because it has such a strong plot. At the end of every episode you are always so curious as to what’s going to happen next episode. The show is basically about this group of high school students that have been thrown into this mysterious murderer.
Honestly I don’t see a big problem in using Wikipedia for research in school. With the things we have learned in class about how wiki works and how it’s monitored, I don’t think there’s any reason we shouldn’t be allowed. If people are going in and changing the information, the person who wrote the article and put the information in the wiki can see what has been changed. Overall the I believe Wikipedia is a reliable site.
One of my pet peeves is when people chew with their mouth open. It not only grosses me out but I just can’t stand to watch it. It bothers me so much when you’re just sitting around eating normally and there’s always that one person just smacking their lips and chewing in the most obnoxious way. Another pet peeve is when you’re walking at a perfectly good pace and someone steps on the back of your shoe and then your shoe comes off. Another pet peeve is when you’re sitting in class doing a test or working and concentrating and there’s always that person humming right behind you.
This year is already going really fast, my time at eagle butte so far has been pretty good. We are already half way through our first semester which has flown by. Eagle Butte has been really fun for me getting to play on the jv volleyball team has been my highlight. Being a part of a new team with new people is really exciting. I think coming into high school I expected it to be a lot different from junior high, and I was right. You get so much more freedom and are treated like young adults and the teachers don’t hold your hand anymore. The days go by so much faster with only have 4 main classes a day. I didn’t expect the classes to be much harder than junior high but you learn a lot of material in one class and are expected to keep up with notes. While in junior high you have small lessons and get printed out notes. I’m really enjoying myself here though I really love being around new people in a new environment.
I don’t think that smart technology is making us dumber or smarter in all honesty. I think that there are certain parts of technology that make us smarter. For example look at all the young children in elementary who are more advanced at using technology than adults. Children growing up in a technology filled society learn much more in my opinion. There are so many games that make kids use their brain and help them learn. There are also parts of technology that make us dumber like when teens are sitting on their phones for hours on end on social media, that’s really not doing much for our brains. However reading things on social media could be a benefit in strengthening your reading skills. Overall I think that there are positive and negative effects of technology and if they make us dumber or smarter.
Someone I admire is my mother. I admire my mother because she is someone who I look up to and can go to for anything. My mother and I have always had a close relationship and she always helps me with whatever I need. I probably don’t tell her enough but I really do appreciate her and everything she does for me. She supports me in my sports and always gets me to try my hardest in everything. She pushes me to do my best.
