“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

To the words we all said

The thoughts we thought were dead

And somewhat to the tears we once shed

I wish you a happy summer

Even if its a sleep filled bummer

I hope you all remember the memories

That we made in english this year

The ones who laughed, good for you

The ones who cried, there were a few

And those who wrote with every ounce of their being

Put your thoughts on paper, abuse ink for its every letter

Remember that words are as powerful as the weilder

And that your friends with the monster that is the pen.

So to my class, i wish the best as here comes our english 11 test.
