This post is about the weather. During this winter holiday season the weather has been very much like what we call ” Texas weather ” . You know how some people are bipolar because they change moods so easily. That basically explains ” Texas weather ” , it changes so quick. It can be sunny out today but don’t be surprised if tomorrow you walk outside and it pouring. This holiday season the weather has been at low 50’s and even hit the 30’s but it was another Christmas without snow here in Dallas.
The president of the United States , is someone who is always on the news. Everyday either on social media or on the television , we see Donald Trump. For example a white house official said that Donald Trump is inclined to declare a national emergency to secure military funding for his long-promised southern border wall if talks between administration officials and top lawmakers from both parties continue to stall. Other days we hear about how he is not what people want as president and then we see him giving long speeches on what he plans to do to ” make america great again ” but many people disagree with his ideas and beliefs.
Something that interests me is soccer. The beautiful game as many people call it. It is such a great sport to both watch and play. I aspire to be like those soccer players that I see on the national teams and on soccer clubs. My favorite soccer team is Real Madrid. Even people who do not know anything about soccer know about Real Madrid because it is the best team in the world. Soccer is one of the motives why I enjoy going to school and why I try to keep my grades up.
What is the collegiate academy ?
I am choosing this as the topic because there is a lot to say about the program. This program began to function in my high school at the beginning of my freshman year. Yes , you’re probably wondering how I got in to begin with. To tell the truth almost everyone I went to middle school with was automatically incorporated into being in the program including myself. I did not really know what I was involved in. All i understood was that it was a chance to attain my diploma and associates degree at the same time. In my head im thinking, GREAT ! Its a good thing to do , less school. Little did I know that it was not going to be as easy and fun as it sounded though. It was clearly something new and everyone was trying to figure out how things were going to work out. Not anytime later would everything fall into place and things would begin to work how I believe the staff intended for it to work. A big part of the program is those teachers and staff involved. Our counselor is a great person who helps all of us and answers any questions we may have, clearly he wants the best for us all and everyone of us students is extremely grateful for him. Everyone became close and grew a bond because we were basically a team. Proving not only to the other students how privileged we were for being in the program but also proving to ourselves that we can do anything we set our minds to. Of course like anything in life we may go through some tough times but there is a solution for everything , well almost everything. For example there were some students who did not want to be a part of it after a while or some who were not doing what they were supposed to be doing but were not ready to give up. Being honest , the program so convenient and something none of us students should take for granted. Yes the work can get exhausting and can cause an amount of stress. It may not fit into schedules with all of our high school work and us teenagers being involved in the sports that make us happy, but we must manage and find a way to input it into the schedule. Time is everything. A couple of minutes doing some work can make a huge difference in the grades. College is a bit different from high school. The professors do not really address students personally unless it is something critical. I doubt the professors remember our names much because when i say the classes are packed, i mean it. It is truly something we should take seriously and try to invest as much time as possible trying to do our best. It is always great when we accomplish what we have been working so hard for. We should exceed the expectations and follow directions to acquire what we want to achieve. We can only hope to do better each and every time. If we had a good grade last semester then the next should be great. I want to make every moment count and continue making my experience good for myself and for my fellow friends. I can already see it , I invisionmyself walking on the stage and telling my parents that I have actudally done it. For them and for myself I hope to be the best that I can be and with the help of this program I know i can manage to make it happen.
The month of December is full of many holidays that my family and I celebrate. We begin on December 12th because we celebrate Virgin Mary’s Day due to our religion. We do something called ” Las Mananitas A La Virgen” in which we pray , and sing songs that honor her. The next holiday we celebrate is Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. On Christmas Eve we wake up pretty early to clean the house and begin cooking. Our family usually makes posole and tamales. During the holidays if you were planning on losing weight I would not recommend coming over to our house. All my family gets together and we also make a “posada”. This is basically done to celebrate baby Jesus birth which is also one of the many mexican traditions. In most occasions we always have a Secret Santa and we do an exchange of gifts. Although many people open their gifts on Christmas morning, that is not the case in my house. All the kids are eager for Christmas Eve to be over and for it to turn 12 so that we begin opening gifts. We all open gifts then continue partying and dancing and just having fun. This continues all the way up until 3 in the morning or even later. Christmas morning we spend it going out for breakfast or just spending quality time with friends and or family. New Years is also very fun. Its a whole party as well with fireworks, dancing, singing, music , and family.
Holidays no matter how they are spent should make one feel happy. Everyone has different traditions and ways in which they choose to spend this time of year. I hope everyone had and continues having a good time. Some may have gone outside of the state or even outside of the country and are having a wonderful time. others may have stayed here and Dallas like myself and are enjoying their time here. I believe that it doesn’t matter where we are as long as we are surrounded by our loved ones and we should not take it for granted. That is how I personally enjoy the holidays more, just enjoying myself and the time I get to spend with my family and friends having a blast!
