American Revolution

The American Revolution

More than 500 settlers made the journey before John Rolfe, but only 60 remained when he arrived at Jamestown. They ate horses, other animals, shoes, and any other leather they could find so they didn’t starve. John Rolfe planted tobacco seeds, and saved the colony. And within two years, it grows in every garden. A different group of settlers came called Pilgrims, and settled a town called Plymouth. They arrived in the middle of a little Ice Age, and food barely grew. In the first few months of the Ice Age, more than half of the Pilgrims died. 

The British took over John Hancock’s ship and took everything away. This caused citizens to start riots. The King sent 4000 redcoats to Boston to enforce his laws and make sure people followed them. Timber was a huge market back then like oil is today, and England wanted American wood since they were running out of forests to get their own from. 10% of Boston’s population was black because of all the African slaves that were being brought over. 

Paul Revere makes a drawing of the redcoats shooting 5 colonists in the streets and calls it “The Bloody Massacre”. This spreads around, and a lot of people see it. Before England even knows anything happened, half of America already knows about the Boston Massacre. When the government doesn’t repeal the tax on tea, angry colonists dump tons of crates of tea in the Boston Harbor. 

As a result, the British close the Boston Harbor, which is one of America’s biggest ports. A lot of people lose their jobs, and a lot of colonists are angry. The first step to breaking away from England is the meeting of the Continental Congress. Some people who attended are John Adams, Patrick Henry, and George Washington.When the British are sent to arrest rebel leaders and take their weapons, Paul Revere makes his famous midnight ride to warn the local militias.

My Path....

My Path   

I'm Lexus Music, I'm a 8th grader at South Central Junior High. When I grow up I would like to be a Neonatal Nurse. I want to be a neonatal nurse because I would like to go to school for a medical degree and I like babies.

Career Plan

After high school I would think I would have a college picked out. I was researching Neonatal nurses on I either want to be a Neonatal Nurse or Veterinarian the pros for Neonatal is their median yearly salary is $92,670 and veterinarians is $86,640. A con for neonatal is that I have to maintain my emotions. I was researching veterinarians on Ohiomeansjobs. A Neonatal nurse needs to have patience, compassion and the ability to communicate complex concepts and teach infant care skills to parents from all backgrounds. They have to maintain emotional objectivity when faced with ethically charged situations such as neglect or a patient’s death. Neonatal nurses must also be able to work effectively with a large interdisciplinary healthcare team. A Veterinarian must be able to control stress, they must concern for others, self control, integrity, dependability, and you must have attention for detail.

My Education

To be a neonatal nurse, a student must become a registered nurse (RN) or a nurse-practitioner (NP). A registered nurse is usually a graduate of a 4-year college or university, although some community colleges offer specialized programs designed to train registered nurses in 2 years. I will be going to Ohio State University in Columbus Ohio for a Neonatal nurse. For 4 years at Ohio State University it will cost me about $76,920 my dorm room would cost about $25,000, my student fees are $1,688. The total 4 years it would cost about  $103,608. One scholarship is the Ronald McDonalds House Charities. I have brung up college with my parents.

My Reflection of Career Day

My job was a veterinarian for Career Day. Career day and researching this stuff up it different cause researching feels like i'm just messing around and just thinking about it and Career day felt like it was real like I actually had that job and I felt like I was an adult. Career day changed on how important all of this is to me.

This is me at the bank trying to figure out my tuition.


I probably will go for neonatal nursing instead of veterinary and I have a feeling I will be working a lot in the summer for my education. In 5 years I will graduate from high school and in 10 years I will most likely graduate from college.

Quote of the Week

1."There are only two pains in life: The pain of discipline and the pain of regret."

The pain of Discipline is something I use everyday and every morning.
The pain of Regret happens every day in class and in sports.

2."You can’t be anything you want to be, you can only be what you deserve to be."

If I want to be a Vet Technician I have to work for it, I have to do things I don't really want to do, I have to Discipline myself.
