Taarika George Ms. Riccio English Honors I Due 3 rd November, 2004 Journal # 1- If you had to defend on of NMHS’ rules t the student body, which one would it be, why and how would you defend it? If I had to defend on of NMHS’ rules to the student body, I would defend the PDA rule. This is because it goes on a lot in our school and we don’t need to see it. It creates a distraction to people walking in the hall and creates traffic throughout the hallways. We also don’t need to know about other people’s personal life. It is of no benefit to us to see it and sometimes it gets really gross. Even though the teachers do warn a lot of the students when they see it happening, I don’t think it is enforced enough. I have seen so many times that the same kids have been warned about PDA in the hallway, but they still continue to do it. I really don’t think that they understand how much of a distraction it is to all of the students. To enforce this rule, I think that there should be consequences if the same couple has been warned many times before. This is the only way that we can get it through their head that it is such a big deal. It has always been shown that when consequences are set for different actions, the students stop. So maybe if consequences are set for PDA, then the students will stop. I think the first consequence would be a warning, just letting the students know that if they do it again, they are going to get into trouble. If the same couple is warned again and again, time after time, then they should get a detention. Then if they are found doing it again, both of their parents should be informed and they should continue to get detentions. If they are found doing it again, then more drastic action should take place, maybe even resulting in suspensions of some sort. Even though these consequences are fairly

harsh, it is the only way that we are going to get them to stop, since we have seen from the past that just telling them to stop doesn’t work. I really wish that the school would make more people obey this rule because I really hate seeing it every single day! Hopefully the principal or someone will really try and make this become a more important rule and really enforce it. I’m afraid that right now, the rule is not being enforced half as much as it should be. George 2

Journal #2-Considering each of the gods/goddesses, which one would you connect to the most? Out of all the gods and goddesses we have learned about, I would connect to Artemis the most. This is because she is a caretaker of the young and I enjoy caring for the young also. I am the babysitter in my neighborhood, and since there are a lot of little kids on my street, I get jobs quite often. I enjoy babysitting because these little kids amaze me so much. Their way of thinking is so incredible and the way they go about things is so funny. I could just sit for hours and take care of little kids because with them, I can never get bored. They are almost always happy and cheerful, and they are the ones to go to when you need to be cheered up. Little

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
