Rule 1 : Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2 : The world doesn't care about your self-esteem.
The world will expect you to accomplish something
BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school.
You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss
Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity.
Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping:
They called it opportunity.
Rule 6 : If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault,
so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7 : Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring
as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills,
cleaning your clothes and listening to you
talk about how cool you thought you were:
So before you save the rain forest
from the parasites of your parent's generation,
try delousing the closet in your own room..
Rule 8 : Your school may have done away with winners and losers,
but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades
and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer.
*This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9 : Life is not divided into semesters.
You don't get summers off and very few employers
are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF.
*Do that on your own time.
Rule 10 : Television is NOT real life.
In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11 : Be nice to nerds.
Chances are you'll end up working for one..
Kung Fu Panda 2!!!
My review on Kung Fu Panda 2 was it was a very terrific movie and I think it’ll be great for the younger children. It was humorous, sad, and very touching towards the parents and children all across the world. The food they had fed us was great and tasty! Also the activities assigned to us were very awesome. They assigned us Face Painting, Petting Zoo, Tattoos, and they even created Animal Balloons for us. The characters in the movie were hilarious, but the best character was Tigress; she was powerful, brave, and also courageous; but Po was my second favorite because he reached enlightenment and he found inner peace. In fact, all of the characters were so brave, strong, and courageous that they were able to defeat the evil peacock. Po had discovered the fact that he was adopted so he had too find out who his real parents were but the peacock he defeated was the one who tried to kill all pandas so he was the reason why his parents had to abandon him. In conclusion, I’m thankful for this field trip; they provided food, transition, activities, and the screening of the movie.

I would give Kung Fu Panda 2 a
5 star movie!!!
The movie was awesome!! What was good was that Po (the panda) found out about his childhood, parents, and what to do in his future. His dad (his birth dad) was so happy to find out his son was still out there. His dad (adopted parent) was happy he came back home. It was a good family movie. I am serious the theater was literally packed. I would give Kung Fu Panda 2 5 stars because it was a good movie, and everyone enjoyed it. There were good moments and sad moments, and all in all, it was a terrific movie. All the characters were great and I loved watching Po do all his Kung Fu.

Thousands of shoes in a huge pile
Staring and wondering what they’re for
Thinking will any of those pairs be mine
Thinking will I survive in this cruel world
I sit and cry staring at these shoes even the little infant shoes
I hear the little souls weeping and crying
I see the darkness upon me
I look above my shoulder
I smell the smell of fear
I start sweating like a pig
I look above, into the darkness
And I see the cruel soldier
Looking at me with his bloody red scary eyes
I think to my self are my shoes the next pair in that pile?
