How is life in the wilderness different from life in Harbor City? Are you different here than you are at home?

Life in the wilderness is very different than in the city by that you can't throw anything on the floor, you have to depend on only what you have. You can't destroy it either and in the city you can do whatever you want. You have to appreciate everything that is here. I am different here because at home I can do almost anything I want and here there is a lot of restrictions that you have to live by.

Tree of Life

Students were asked to describe their lives as a tree: what are the roots that make them strong? Where do their branches lead...what direction do they want to go in their lives? What kind of tree would they be? Where would their tree thrive best? What is the trunk that helps them stand tall?

Where does your tree thrive: in a country-like village What kind of tree: an apple tree because I see myself giving What makes it unique: my tree gives a share of its fruit to everybody and that makes it unique Fruit: life Branches: I want to be a good hardworking guy Trunk: friends Roots: Mexican, male, family of four, fun, inspiration, curiousness
