In being here one of the most important things that I have learned that I am the sum total of my decsions and that I have to look out for my best intrest. Majority of my teachers have helped me realize these things. High school has helped me in my maturation process in making the decisions I make for me.

After Leaving High School I plan to attend Campbell University on a full ride academic scholarship. I am going to play football their and major in sports medicine. I plan on becoming either a personal trainer or a physical therapist for a professional sports team specifically in football or basketball. I have to have career dealing with sports and I feel like this is the best outlet for me. Playing football should help me out, because I can see first hand on how some of the things are done. Also in order to become one of these people I know I have to look the part and show my future clients that I am healthy.
First, I should be able to understand human anatomy. Right now I my senior year I have been taking the class Human Anatomy to help me get and understanding of the body. It is very important for me to understand how my client body works so I can be able to see what type of exercises they are capable of doing so they can stay safe, get fit, and avoid injuries. So far in Human Anatomy I have learned how the body works and why the body does certain things at certain times, depending on what the person is doing.
Second, while attending Campbell I have decided that in order to become a physical trainer I would have to take some type of class that is dealing with leadership. In order to be a good personal trainer you will have to be inspiring and trustworthy. You must get your client to buy in to what you are doing, because they feel that what you are doing is the right thing. Some of the exercises you do with them can cause pain and even make them cry a little so it is up to you to keep them lifted and get them to think positive.
Third, I need to find a place where I can be certified. You must be certified in CPR and AED, and should have majored in something like sports medicine or exercise science In college. I know that it will cost me about $400-$800 dollars to go through the program but that is a price I am willing to pay. There are also state diploma schools, which will give you hands-on experience and classroom education.
Next, I would need a specialty in what my training would be, Some examples are with children, special needs, people recovering from injuries, sports teams, and many more. You can not be the same as another trainer cause there will be nothing that separates you from the other person. I would have to do my own thing so that I can be hired to work somewhere.
Also, I would need to think of the type of job environment I would want to work in. It may benefit me if I gain experience in my field by working in different gyms in roles that don’t require certification. Many gyms hire people without certification as “floor trainers.” Floor trainers can get experience as a trainer and find a gym that’s a good fit before begin building a personal list of clients. Some gyms actually pay for their trainers to receive certification as an incentive for continuing to work there.
Last, my overall goal is to have my own gym or list of clients, but first I would have to work for a gym. Most trainers start their careers working for gyms, even if they know they want to branch off on their own later. Gyms provide the credibility you need when you’re first starting out. They also give you the chance to learn from other personal trainers and get practice working with a steady stream of new clients.
In preperations for leaving high school it is important that I have goals set in place for me so that I can have a plan in going to college and the real world. It’s good to have a plan and goals in place so that the rode to your dreams will be a smooth ride. There is not a doubt in my mind that the career that I chose is the career that I want to do. I have goals in 5 years, 10 years, and beyond that. I’m fully confident that I can exucute and complete my goals in the certain amount of years that I have given myself to complete. It won’t be easy but I know I can complete them
After High School I plan on attending Campbell University on my full ride scholarship that I got from playing football this past year at Riverdale High School. Really the scholarship is because of the igh GPA I maintained in high school, so I do not have to play football if I don’t want to. However, I plan on playing all four years. At Campbell University I want to maintain at least a 3.5 GPA and depending on how my workout schedule is over the summer I will take summer classes to finish a year ealier. I plan on majoring in Exercise science and getting an intership with one of the trainers apart of the Campbell Uniersity sport teams. Another option I have is if my football talents get notice by the NFL I will try and test my luck in the NFL draft and see if I can make the 53 man roster of a professional football team after I finish college.
10 years from now I plan on being a full time trainer for a gym, high school, or college sports team. Preferablly for a football or basketball team, because I have the most knowledge of those sports than any others. Depending on what happens at this time, I will probably be settleling down with the girl of drems. My dream girl will be athletic, has to like sports just a little, and just a person I can relate too. This will be the girl I’ll plan to marry. Hopefully, I will be doing a great enough job to either earn a position for a professional sports team like the Atlanta Falcons, or I will be the owner of my own gym.
In the years after I accepted a job offer with the Atlanta Falcons or build my own gym, I will be making enough money to provide for my family. When I marry the girl of my dreams will be living in Atlanta, Georgia with our two kids. I would want my first child to be a boy, but if God were to bless me with a girl first I will be just as happy. I will become one of the most successful trainers and my resume will be so amazing that the nation’s top athletes will be calling me asking me to get them right for their upcoming season.
I believe that the reason for education is to enlighten people on how things came to be, and to prepare them with the basic necessities they will need for life. You can not live life not knowing certain things, how to do things, or how things came to be. That is where education comes into play in where it teaches about certain things such as how to count and handle your money when your are looking to purchase a house or certain item. Another example is Language Arts, which is probably the most important subject; because it helps you learn the language that you speak. The world could not function without education.
Moreover, the best way I learn is when a teacher goes through everything step by step. I am the type of person hat after teacher says one step in a problem I want to know the reason for doing that. Also, I am more of a visual learner than a teacher giving a lecture on a topic. I need to see for myself to believe what they are saying is true and learn easier. You have to show me how and why certain things are done he way they are.

Author: George Orwell
Date of Publication: 1948
Genre: Negative utopian, or dystopian, fiction
|Biographical information about the author
Born Eric Arthur Blair, George Orwell created some of the sharpest satirical fiction of the 20th century with such works as Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. He was a man of strong opinions who addressed some of the major political movements of his times, including imperialism, fascism and communism.The son of a British civil servant, George Orwell spent his first days in India, where his father was stationed. His mother brought him and his older sister, Marjorie, to England about a year after his birth and settled in Henley-on-Thames. His father stayed behind in India and rarely visited. (His younger sister, Avril, was born in 1908.) Orwell didn’t really know his father until he retired from the service in 1912. And even after that, the pair never formed a strong bond. He found his father to be dull and conservative.According to one biography, Orwell’s first word was “beastly.” He was a sick child, often battling bronchitis and the flu. Orwell was bit by the writing bug at an early age, reportedly composing his first poem around the age of four. He later wrote, “I had the lonely child’s habit of making up stories and holding conversations with imaginary persons, and I think from the very start my literary ambitions were mixed up with the feeling of being isolated and undervalued.” One of his first literary successes came at the age of 11 when he had a poem published in the local newspaper.Like many other boys in England, Orwell was sent to boarding school. In 1911 he went to St. Cyprian’s in the coastal town of Eastbourne, where he got his first taste of England’s class system. On a partial scholarship, Orwell noticed that the school treated the richer students better than the poorer ones. He wasn’t popular with his peers, and in books he found comfort from his difficult situation. He read works by Rudyard Kipling and H. G. Wells, among others. What he lacked in personality, he made up for in smarts. Orwell won scholarships to Wellington College and Eton College to continue his studies.After completing his schooling at Eton, Orwell found himself at a dead end. His family did not have the money to pay for a university education. Instead he joined the India Imperial Police Force in 1922. After five years in Burma, Orwell resigned his post and returned to England. He was intent on making it as a writer.
|Historical information about period of publication
George Orwell’s forty-sixth birthday was less than a month off when his last novel was published in London by Secker & Warburg, and five days afterwards by Harcourt Brace in New York. The socialist author of the twentieth century’s most devastating critique of left-wing totalitarianism had less than a year left to live. The idea for the book had come to him in 1943 and themes in an early outline included, ‘The system of organized lying on which society is founded, the ways in which this is done (falsification of records, etc), the nightmare feeling caused by the disappearance of objective truth, leader-worship, etc…’. No one who knew London in the years immediately after 1945 will need to be told where the appalling shabbiness of the book’s setting came from. The shortages, the bombsites, the regular failure of things to work properly, the prevailing dreariness – were drawn from real life. Orwell eventually wrote the book on the Scottish island of Jura in the Inner Hebrides, to which he retreated from London in 1946, ill with tuberculosis after a severe hemorrhage, and depressed. His wife Eileen had died the year before, during an operation he had expected to be mere routine. Orwell took an abandoned farm called Barnhill close to the sea at the north end of the island, with his sister Avril and his adopted baby son Richard. There was a Robinson Crusoe streak in him and he kept chickens, went fishing and worked at being self-sufficient. The scenery was beautiful, the climate mild, but the house was at the end of a five-mile dirt track, the post appeared only twice a week, there was no telephone and Orwell was twenty-five miles from the nearest doctor. Surprisingly, there were quite a few callers, most of whom seem to have been a trial. There were some violent rows. Orwell tended to retreat behind the typewriter in his room. Determined to finish the book, he refused to make any concessions to his state of health, which grew worse, and by the end of 1947 he was in the Hairmyres Hospital at East Kilbride, near Glasgow, with his lungs in a bad way. Tragically, he proved to be allergic to the new drug streptomycin, which afflicted him with side effects so severe that the treatment which might otherwise have saved his life had to be stopped. Back in Jura after seven months, he typed the final version of the book while lying in bed, which was awkward to manage, or sitting on a kitchen chair in his room, smoking like a funnel despite the condition of his lungs.Early in 1949 Orwell had to go into a private sanitorium in the Cotswolds, where streptomycin was tried again and soon abandoned. Nineteen Eighty-Four sold so well (it has never stopped selling) that it would have given him a comfortable income for life, but it was too late and in September he was moved to University College Hospital in London. There in October, attired in a smoking jacket in his bed with a bottle of champagne waiting on a hospital trolley, he married Sonia Brownell, his second wife, and there, still hoping for a reprieve, he died on January 21st, 1950.Orwell’s friend Tosco Fyvel said years afterwards that, more than any book published after 1945, Nineteen Eighty-Four ‘has subtly altered the popular impression of the way history has been proceeding’. It is a tribute to the book that the year 1984 eventually came and went without Orwell’s nightmare vision having fully come about.
|Characteristics of the genre
Well, the drama is pretty clear what with the heavy conflict and emotional weight. We’re not even going to touch “Dystopian Literature,” because this book pretty much defines the genre. Parody is Orwell’s specialty, and he does it here by exaggerating human failings for purposes of social commentary. The science fiction comes in with the crazy technological aspect of Oceania: the telescreens, the Thought Police. Sounds like science fiction.
As the novel opens, Winston feels frustrated by the oppression and rigid control of the Party, which prohibits free thought, sex, and any expression of individuality. Winston dislikes the party and has illegally purchased a diary in which to write his criminal thoughts. He has also become fixated on a powerful Party member named O’Brien, whom Winston believes is a secret member of the Brotherhood—the mysterious, legendary group that works to overthrow the Party. Winston works in the Ministry of Truth, where he alters historical records to fit the needs of the Party. He notices a coworker, a beautiful dark-haired girl, staring at him, and worries that she is an informant who will turn him in for his thought crime. He is troubled by the Party’s control of history: the Party claims that Oceania has always been allied with East Asia in a war against Eurasia, but Winston seems to recall a time when this was not true. One day, Winston receives a note from the dark-haired girl that reads “I love you.” She tells him her name, Julia, and they begin a covert affair.
This relationship lasts for some time. Winston is sure that they will be caught and punished sooner or late. Torn away from Julia and taken to a place called the Ministry of Love, Winston finds that O’Brien, too, is a Party spy who simply pretended to be a member of the Brotherhood in order to trap Winston into committing an open act of rebellion against the Party. O’Brien spends months torturing and brainwashing Winston, who struggles to resist. At last, O’Brien sends him to the dreaded Room 101, the final destination for anyone who opposes the Party. Here, O’Brien tells Winston that he will be forced to confront his worst fear. Throughout the novel, Winston has had recurring nightmares about rats; O’Brien now straps a cage full of rats onto Winston’s head and prepares to allow the rats to eat his face. Winston snaps, pleading with O’Brien to do it to Julia, not to him.
Giving up Julia is what O’Brien wanted from Winston all along. His spirit broken, Winston is released to the outside world. He meets Julia but no longer feels anything for her. He has accepted the Party entirely and has learned to love Big Brother.

1984 by George Orwell talks place in the city of Airstrip One. This city is also known as London. Winston Smith, the main character of the story, lives in this city, which is right in the center of this dystopian society. He is a constant threat to the Thought Police due to his position in the Outer Party.
Significance of the opening scene
“WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH”
The opening scene of the story illustrates the life of the people in the story. Winston Smith is a high ranking official in this government, but he is still highly oppressed by it. The characteristics of this town depict a totalitarian form of government. “BIG BROTHER” is in constant watch of all the citizens, except for the poor (proles). The Party does not see the proles as a threat to their power, so they are not as cruel to them; life itself is cruel enough.
Significance of the ending/closing scene
When taken to Room 101, Winston Smith is faced with his biggest fear: being in a dark room with something scary on the other side. When O’Brien threatens to have his face eaten alive by rats, Winston gives in and betrays Julia. He’d rather have her go through the torture than

Describe the author’s style: Orwell’s sentences are direct, with barely any show. We learn about 1984’s world through dull, straightforward explanations, which slightly shows how dull and matter-of-fact daily life is for Oceania’s people. Orwell describes his fake world and lets the story unfold in a disconnected way, but he knows that any smart reader will find his descriptions disturbing and weird. Orwell also gets some dark humor into his storytelling.
An example that demonstrates the style: “She had had her first love affair when she was sixteen, with a Party member of sixty who later committed suicide to avoid arrest. ‘And a good job too,’ said Julia. ‘Otherwise they’d have had my name out of him when he confessed.”
This quote is saying that the world has gotten to the point where it feels like war brings peace, freedom is in doing work under the influence of others such as a slave did, and strength comes from becoming ignorant. This quote is repeated in the book several times to show that people are under the influence of the government, and listen to everything it says otherwise they die if they don’t listen. This quote is significant because it gives Winston a clear picture of what’s going on in the world, and shows that it needs to be changed.
This quote is saying that if the people keep following the government, then nothing will be different from the past. It’s saying that things have stayed the same throughout history. This quote is significant because it’s motivating people to take some action.
This quote suggests that the world is changing. It is saying that the world is failing just as the words in the dictionary are diminishing. This quote is also significant to try and make people aware of what is going on in the world, because the words are being destroyed because of big brother, and the people have no say in it.
This quote is saying that the freedom comes from having the right to think and say what one wants to. This quote is significant to 1984 because it’s the basis for the views of the society that is being controlled by the government.
