Family LossFamily loss:
remembering a loved on
By: Brittany Tennant
On Thurs. Mar. 25, 2010 my grandmother, Nora Rose Tennant, died at age 81. I knew that she was going to die for a few days before it happened, and throughout the time she told my dad to remind me and my brother of how much she loved us both. But it was still heart breaking to hear that I would never see her again.
The only funeral I have attended up to this point in my life was seven years ago when my grandpa, Charles Tennant, died of a heart attack. I remember sitting in the back row of the funeral home ripping tissue paper into miniscule pieces. I was refusing to cry. I was very close to my grandpa, my brother was always close the grandma.
I missed my grandma's funeral because I was in Florida enjoying Disney World with the Ike Band. The day of the funeral sucked for me. I lost my wallet that day and cried about that, but I cried even wors
"Clash of the Titans" reviewClash of the Titans

"Clash of the Titans" is a remake of the 1981 film by the same name. This remake begins with a beautiful narration of how Zeus (Liam Neeson), Hades (Ralph Fiennes), and Poseidon (Danny Huston) overthrew their father. Zeus, so as to defeat their father Cronos and the other titans, convinced Hades to create a creature that would defeat their enemies, the Kraken. Once the titans are defeated Zeus becomes the god of the heavens and Mount Olympus, Poseidon gets to control the oceans, and being tricked by Zeus, Hades is stuck with the underworld. The narration tells of how Zeus creates humans so that their prayers can fuel the gods immortality and how the humans were beginning to rebel against the gods.
After the narration you are shown a fisherman on his boat, he pulls up an elaborate coffin from the ocean. Opening the gorgeous tomb he reveals a beautiful woman, dead, and a small baby crying.
Teachers are good role modelsTeachers teach more than they're paid to do
A cacophony of sound evades the silent room at the beginning of the day as the bell rings in the crowded halls. A teacher with a large smile on their face greets every student with such positivity that it diffuses throughout the entire room, making students smile at the merriment the teacher has every morning.
A teacher is one instructs students in a given field. But the best teachers are those who do more than just instruct us in class but who help us become better people and help us through lives road blocks.
My favorite teachers are those, who usually teach English, who smile all the time and are too chipper for their own goods. But that's what we students need, chipper ness.
This world is full of so much heart ache and negative vibes that an overly happy person is relief to all the dreariness of everyday
