Emerson - 662 words

My motivation and interest in being a journalist is so vast that I knew that I would have trouble squeezing it all into a mere 500 word essay. In addition, I would have to list my experience in journalism. During my high school years I have accumulated so much experience due to the responsibilities bestowed on me, that it would be hard to describe them all.

Ludwig Van Beethoven - 481 words
I. Education in general and in music Beethoven came from a musical family, and his early musical training was under his father's guidance. His father taught him piano and violin. His general education was not continued beyond the elementary school. He was practically illiterate in math.

As I approach Arp Elementary School, many different thoughts go through my mind. I gaze at the surrounding area and notice the appearance of the building. It looks like a cozy building set away from the busy streets. I watch some children playing outside during their recess and memories flow through my mind. The energy the kids posses is reviving to my inner child. I had a strong feeling to go play on the playground with them. The boys were running around yelling, playing, and screaming. The girls, on the other hand, seemed more relaxed and calm. I almost felt out of place, over towering all of the children. I felt nervous but excited as I walked through the front door.
