    I decided to write about my relationship with my dad in this post because Father’s Day just passed and because I’ve already made a post about the incredible bond I have with my dad. In that post I mentioned that he was away in Korea when I was born and I didn’t get to see him until I was 7 months old. My mother, who was only 22 at the time, had a lot of responsibility taking care of the three of us who were all under 3 years old. When my dad came home he took over the caregiving duties for me completely because he wanted to make sure he bonded with me. There was a solid attachment built between the two of us at that time that has been tested over time but never frayed. When I was 18 my dad decided to leave my mother. I was so heart broken and depressed that my boyfriend of two years dumped me. It was awful. As soon as the divorce was final and without telling me my father married another woman, Gloria, who he expected me to just bond with immediately. I felt so lost, confused and just a little bit angry with him. It’s been 32 years and I’ve barely gotten to know Gloria. She has only allowed me to come to their house 3 times. There was a process that unfolded that is much too long to go into here but it ended up that my dad and Gloria would have both my sister and brother over to their house for the holidays but I was never invited. I did my best to not be hurt but it was hard when I called their house and said, “Hi Gloria, it’s Pamela, is my dad there?” Only to have her…

    Perplexing Coding This picture symbolizes my AP Computer Science class because in this class, I had to come up with different types of codes, like the one shown, to write and format. I chose this image because once I entered this class I knew that coding was exactly what it appeared to be. Complicated. Most of my class was filled with seniors so the first few months I struggled to learn the material that they already knew. When Mr. Ellich asked questions like what does “string” mean in coding,…

    I think I have learned so much from this experience about the needs of students when they are in second grade. I saw how the students were given more independent time during this grade level then lower levels. I also noticed that they are still young enough that they need to be redirected and helped through projects. I believe by watching Mrs. Belles conduct her class in this way made me realize that I really like second grade. I think the one thing that stuck with me the most is how Mrs.Belles…

    I do not know my own name. And yet the sea of people standing before me continue to chant it. All I can make out is a grey rumble, for the never ceasing banging in my bones is the sole object of my constant focus. I am almost there. The banging is a persistent beast, but I hope to overcome its power in a meek matter of months. Today I am the president, with Nina at my side, and soon the malicious blackness of my insides shall be matched. Nina is the only one who knows of him. And she denies it.…

    I sighed as I looked up to see the 12 foot tall wooden fence. I still didn't have the courage to go through with it. It was a scorching, hot day in Ethiopia, and another day has passed since I had concocted my plan to escape. My house was ringed by a huge 10 feet wall all made of steel except for a little chuck by the back. My plan was simple, climb over the wall so I could play outside, but not while my parents were around . I kept trying but I could not sum up the courage to do it. On the…
