Blessings

We are blessed beyond belief. Our blessings surround us and are such a part of our daily living that we often take for granted things that we should be thankful for. I have blessings in all aspects of my life, from school to sports to family. Everyone who has the pleasure of attending All Saints’…

Work or Play?

Balance is a key essential to many things, whether it be athletically or academically. But I’m more focused on the academic stand point of balance. You have got to have balance in school. You have to balance with your homework and your free time, and school and sports, but most importantly in ‘work versus play.’…

What do you love to do?

We all know that school is very important. There is no doubt about that. School takes up the majority of our weekdays, but what do you like to do when you’re not worried about school? I enjoy being active. So many of my extracurricular activities involve some kind of sport. Sports are a great way…

Your Future

The future can be quite scary to some people. To others, they could care less what happens to them next. Others still can’t wait to go into the future to do great things. I am the latter of the three. I can’t wait to graduate from college and go into the real world with all…

What does education mean to you?

Education is perhaps the single most meaningful, purposeful thing in life, behind religion. To me,  education means learning. Most people when they think of education, they think of school. But that isn’t necessarily true. Education is defined as “the act of acquiring knowledge (dictionary.com).” So you get an education when you learn something in your…

Driven

Motivation is defined as the desire to do, or the drive to do. I am driven by many things in my life. Perhaps my main thing that motivates me is myself. I set high standards for myself, and I push myself to be the best that I can be. My self-motivation is enormous. I am…

The Best Teachers Ever

One word that describes all of my teachers is “wise”. I love that about them. Because of this, they always know what to do. There is never a time they don’t have a story to tell about an experience they’ve had. This makes learning a lot more fun because many lessons come with a story.…

Are you motivated?

The thought of the future motivates me. Lots of times I’ll be sitting in my room at night playing on my phone and feeling absolutely no motivation to put it away and do homework. Then I remember this: Your middle school grades decide your high school classes (i.e. honors), your high school classes decide your…

The Start of a Great Year

This eighth grade year is already shaping up to be my favorite, most fun year ever at All Saints’. All of my teachers are so interesting and they make learning fun and easy. It took me a few weeks, but now that I know what to expect from all my teachers and classes, I can…

What inspires you?

I have many inspirations in my life, and I can get inspired easily. The biggest inspirations are definitely my family members. They have always pushed me to be the best person I can be, whether its for academics, sports, or just life. Besides family members, my friends inspire me a lot. They push me and…
