What is it like to be peer pressured?

Do you ever want to feel cool? Can you feel cool doing something that felt wrong to you? In the story Shooting An Elephant by George Orwell, George was peer pressured into shooting, an elephant for the Burmese. There could have been thousands of reasons, why he should have shot the elephant, but there could have been one to not shoot the elephant. The story provides great details, of what peer pressure can cause, and it will affect you for the rest of your life. The three messages from Shooting An Elephant by George Orwell, are cowardness, peer pressure, and regret.

George did believe that he was on a higher standard than them, but he also wanted their respect. He wanted them to realize that he was there to protect them, not hurt them. There are people in this world that try to run away from the things that they know they shouldn’t, and there are people that will stand up for what they believe in. The message in this story is that don’t let your reputation affect, what you think you should do. When people are trying to be themselves…

Dear Y Camp family,
One of the greatest feelings in life is when you’re laying in the cool grass looking up at a crystal clear sky with a million stars. Lighting bugs make the darkness sparkle and move. The night air unsullied and fresh, frogs croak, barn owls call back and forth to each other, and cicadas sing in the blackness.

It was a white Christmas morning, and my 7 year-old self rushed downstairs to see the giant presents awaiting me. I ripped up the biggest present with flashy wrapping paper. Behold! It was the castle Lego set I had wanted for months! Stocked with knights in shining armor, walls holding against the evil creatures, and of course, the hefty 1000 piece count. “1000 pieces? That doesn’t seem too hard. I’ll probably knock it out in like an hour.” Well, I was wrong… very wrong. I worked on…
