that week at camp, I probably wouldn’t have had the courage to run for Secretary that upcoming school year.
I also attended camp in 2013 as a Level 2 camper. My second year at camp didn’t focus so much on teamwork, but more on my own potential, not only in Student Council, but in all aspects of my life. I learned that I alone have the power to make a difference. Level 2 really encouraged me to take risks, and that if I was passionate about something then I could make it happen. All in all, Level 2 showed me that I am capable of accomplishing amazing things, and that I shouldn’t be afraid to try new ideas.
All the people I have met through MASC and all the events I have participated in have inspired me in so many aspects of my life and encouraged me to continually try to better myself as a person and as a leader.

fantastic trait every person should have. My grandmother was a very dependable person, you could count on her for anything: cheerleading practices, graduations, doctors appointments, anything you needed her for she was there. There were eleven of us but she always maintained to appear where and when she was needed no matter the circumstances and I admired her for that and teaching me the importance of being dependable. It shows a lot in a person when you know that they will be there for you whenever they are needed.
My grandmother is a person whom I will always love and strongly admire. Without her life lessons and wisdom on how to love unconditionally, being dependable, avoid stressing over the small stuff, being a hard worker and be sure to make lots of memories with your family and loved ones, I would not be the person I am today. I hope that one day I can be such an admirable person as she was and teach my own children the things she showed me.

When thinking about purchasing a puppy, it is something that you should definitely take some time to consider. Bringing in a new animal is a very huge commitment. You are choosing to care and give love unconditionally to that animal. Although you get to go out on your own and see the world, the animals don’t get that option, so you are their world. Getting a puppy is beneficial but also costly and difficult at times. Before purchasing an animal you should really evaluate yourself to know if you are capable of maintaining one.
Getting a puppy can be very beneficial, not only for you, but for the pup itself. They say a man’s best friend is a dog, and I can’t agree more. If trained right

CheerleaderThe first image in one's mind is a female who walks around in a short skirt, with her pony tail bobbing from side to side, and a grin that is as phony as her attitude. An airhead whose only response is "Ready?", "Okay!"; whose only physical coordination involves clapping her hands and stomping her feet. Obviously, not considered the brightest crayon in the box, right? She is just a pretty decoration standing on the sidelines, more worried about breaking a sweat, than about her team winning the game. Yet, some cannot imagine her breaking a sweat because to them, cheerleading is not a sport. However, contrary to what many perceive it to be, cheerleading aids in leadership skills

Life is continuous; life will go on.However, while in some ways Jim clings to the hope that life is indeed continuing outside the sphere of life that he has come to know, he also in a way hopes that life will remain still and stagnant. The novels three main characters, Ashley, Jim and Imogen are all opposed to the natural cycle of time in some way, yet Jim is more so than the others. In such a way, Malouf appears to be implying that humans cannot accept change and want to hang on to things just as they are at a particular point in time. This is evident when observing

There is nothing to admire in any member of the Simms. Do you agree?I think that this statement is too blunt. There are characteristics of everyone that we should admire. There is one obvious member of the Simms family that we can admire, Jeremy. While other members of the family we dislike due to them being racist. We seem to forget that these people were living in an unjust and unequal community. It was normal for white people to think that they were superior to black people, "that's the way of things."

" And place your hands below your husband's foot. In token of which duty, if he please, my hand is ready, may it do him ease." Shakespeare has chosen to use submissive tone connotations such as 'ease' and 'duty' as a reminder of the roles both females and males had In the era, which suggests patriarchy was accepted and unchallenged.As an appropriation, "10 Things I Hate About You" represents the same ideas, though they are altered to suit the time and context.

"Is 10 things I hate about you an effective transformation which enriches the original text"In The Taming of the Shrew, there is a strong undercurrent of issues such as roles of women in society, appearance versus reality and the love of wealth which men have. Shakespeare portrays lively characters to depict these universal concepts and thus critiques the social conventions of patriarchal society. Gil Jugner has adapted 10 Things I Hate about You to further enrich and effectively transform the themes of which Shakespeare explored, although from a different approach as the context is updated to a more modern perspective helping the audience to relate and understand the concepts.Shakespeare

changed the most since Shakespeare's time is the role of men and women. Today, generally, men and women are treated as equals. In actual fact, preconceptions based on gender are considered to be discrimination and can have severe consequences.Overall, this play is about masculine assertiveness, game-playing and masculine ideas. Shakespeare's brilliant use of language is the key to the success of this play. Through Shakespeare's language, themes of love, power, status and deception are conveyed to the audience.There are many similarities between "The Taming of The Shrew" and "Ten Things I Hate About You". For example: The girl's last name is Stratford, making reference to Stratford-upon-Avon

In "The Taming of the Shrew" by William Shakespeare, and "Ten things I hate about you", directed by Gil Junger, both contexts reflect the society of when each text was composed. When comparing these two texts and observing the themes, it is indisputable that these contexts have shown the similarity and differences of the values during the time, thus, it shows the evolution of society.Firstly, "The Taming of the shrew" suggests money to be a very important necessity of life during the time. It is a suitor's economic consideration which acts as a determinant to who marries whom. Both Bianca and Katherine are viewed upon by their suitors as "treasures". This is suggested by Petruchio's first

To Sarah, it felt like Amira was taking enormous effort in order to keep her life inconsistent. Everything about Amira was fast: she changed internships as quickly as Sarah found a single work-study. She was always with a different boyfriend.

While wolves are known for their spine tingling howls, the howl is not the only way they communicate. “Wolf Language” so to speak, consists of many grunts, snarls, growls, yips, and whines. By the far, the most important way wolves communicate is their body language, which includes hunching, hair raising, stalking, tail wagging, and showing their teeth.

These words can be simply uttered, but when done in sincerity, can pack a powerful punch. They are “Please forgive me”, “I forgive you”, “Thank you”, and “I love you”.

One of the most important things I learned in this class is what affects the supply and demand of bonds, which ultimately decides the price of a bond. Three main items determine the supply of bonds: the expected profitability of investment opportunities, the expected inflation and the government budget. The expected profitability of investment opportunities is important because companies issue bonds to raise money. If a company does not feel that they can make profitable investments with the money they would obtain from issuing a bond they are not going to want to incur the expense (the interest on the bond) and therefore are not

Let’s start with what money is and what it does. Money is “anything that is generally accepted in payment for goods and services.” (Mishkin, 2010) Money needs to have value to the people within a society in order to fill this role. One of the primary roles of money is to be used as payment for goods or services; it also reflects value or price levels and retains value over time.

The Taming of the Shrew and 10 Things I Hate About You both raise important issues through their themes, language and portrayal of characters. In doing so they each reflect the prevailing culture of the time they were composed.A modern audience has the opportunity to compare its society to those of the past, a prospect not offered to those of Elizabethan England. This allows a modern audience the ability to analyse views and opinions throughout history, draw appropriate conclusions about certain issues and in a manner of speaking, learn from their mistakes. It is through this ability to analyse societies of the past that appropriations of texts occur, as issues, themes and views are changed

An adaptation of shakespeare’s ‘The Taming of the shrew’, ’10 things I hate about you’ has a lot to live up to and it could be suggested that the makers had a responsibility to address some of the issues in a way that was appealing to 20th century teenagers. This is achieved throughout the film successfully.
There are many obvious connections between shakespeare’s work and the screen adaptation, for example; in ‘The taming of the shrew’ Bianca is not allowed to date boys until her sister, Catarina does. This was tradition of the time period, as Catarina was the eldest sister. Similarly, in ’10 things i hate about you’ Bianca cannot date until her sister Kat does. This was a rule strictly

The idea of an individual disregarding their own reputation is shown in the song 'Bad Reputation' written by Joan Jett. The individual demonstrates this concept by being untroubled by the thoughts and opinions of others, not doing things just to please others and being rebellious. This idea also runs through the play "Taming of The Shrew", written by William Shakespeare 1592, and the movie "10 Things I Hate About You", directed by Gil Junger 1999.To be an individual who disregards their own reputation, it is important to be untroubled by other people's opinions.
