Subject: Sophomore English, Tompkin’s Academy
Student’s Name: Kain Torvik
Date: May 3, 2011
Hey everyone, this is Kain. So I’m writing this entry on the Academy’s blog. It’s my last assignment for Ms. Morgan’s class. We’re supposed to post a reflection on the past year at Tompkin’s Academy. We weren’t given any requirements, just that we were supposed to have it done today, so I chose to reflect my last year in the form of songs that got me through the year:
1. Smile Like You Mean It
After being kicked out of my own home and sent off to Tompkin’s Academy, I really could care less about putting on an act. It sucked. My sister told me to smile, look on the bright side she said, and I tried. So I guess faking it best describes how I felt at the beginning of the school year.
But I did get invited to join the school’s basketball team, so that helped make it a bit better.
2. Never Slept So Soundly
Then everything changed and my world got thrown upside down. School was still the same, but I realized I had been sleeping my entire life. I found the power within me in a dream and I woke up.
Then I was born. Everything from my past faded away and I transcended what was holding me back. There’s something about Tompkin’s Academy that keeps me here and I know it is my destiny to find out why.
Feel free to hit me up on my facebook page here.
