We Don’t Say

By Paige Hughes

We don’t say goodnight

We don’t say I love you 
We don’t even exchange glances 
What are we more then blood related? 
 
We don’t hug 
Or have conversations 
We don’t show our feelings knowing how stubborn we are
But we don’t show that we are father and daughter 
But what is left of who we are?

Expectations

By Paige Hughes

There is not much left I can take.
There is nothing I can do.
I am not super woman who can make everything in the world perfect.
I am a teenager that is finding herself but at the same time… Trying To figure out why everyone thinks I can’t reach my high expectations of what I want to do.
I guess you can say I have high expectations, but what’s the big problem of expecting a lot when the people around you could never dream of them?
They had expectations of graduating high school and living day by day but I’m living day by day trying to find myself
So what’s the problem with high expectations?
Is it the fear that I can dream?
Is it the fear I feel like I can do almost anything?
Is it the fear that I believe I can be whom ever?
What’s the problem with high expectations?
The answer… NOTHING.
A teenage girl trying to find herself and having high expectations is who she is, it’s what makes her. Her dreams are what makes her expectations so high. She wants to reach them till she touches the stars!
You should Never doubt yourself in what you can do or dream of. No expectations or dreams are bad or too huge to accomplish. As long as you dream and believe in yourself. Anything is possible. 🙂 reach for the moon even though there’s already footprints on it.
The people around you think it’s too much because they never had the mind to think so large. Think big and dream large.
You only live once…. Dream it!!!

Don’t talk with your mouth full!

To date we haven’t met too many students who don’t like to eat, and ESOL students are no exception.  Foods and food preparation may vary by country, culture, or family, and the ESOL I students at GWHS have been writing about some of their favorite foods and dishes.  Using the VISIONS textbook, the students have been able to categorize foods popular in their home countries according to the international Food Pyramid.  Their thoughts about foods make for some interesting reading!  See the example below and check back soon for a link to more food stories.                                ~MW

“Most of the Nepali people use ginger root as a spice.  It grows underground and needs dry soil to grow.  It has a brown bark, but we scrape the bark off.  We eat ginger on rice, onions, and vegetables for lunch and dinner.  We eat ginger on bread and pickles.  Ginger is also a medicine for cough, sore throat and cold symptoms.  Nepali people eat lots of spices, and ginger is just one of them.”   By Neeta Bhandari
