Overview Print Page

My life had stood - a loaded gun -

My Life had stood - a Loaded Gun -
In Corners - till a Day
The Owner passed - identified -
And carried Me away -

And now We roam in Soverign Woods -
And now We hunt the Doe -
And every time I speak for Him
The Mountains straight reply -

And do I smile, such cordial light
Opon the Valley glow -
It is as a Vesuvian face
Had let it’s pleasure through -

And when at Night - Our good Day done -
I guard My Master’s Head -
’Tis better than the Eider Duck’s
Deep Pillow - to have shared -

To foe of His - I’m deadly foe -
None stir the second time -
On whom I lay a Yellow Eye -

Though I than He - may longer live
He longer must - than I -
For I have but the power to kill,

Hey guys, I'm Mitch. I am currently involved with my Auto tech class and the Co-op youth apprenticeship program to currently be employed at Uptown Chevrolet working as an Automotive Technician. I also am involved with the HUHS trap shooting team, forensics, and participating in the talent show with my friends playing in a band of which I am the drummer (you may have seen the Jive Turkeys if you came the 21st or 22nd of March of 2014). Although I am involved with a lot of AP and College Prep. classes, when I graduate with my class in 2014, I won't follow them to their 4 year colleges, I am enrolled at Universal Technical Institute of which I scored on an entrance exam the number one out of all 11 campuses acrose the US. Mrs. Parker always made fun of its abbreviation, UTI because she has the mind of a child and sees Urinary Tract Infection. I hope to graduate from tech school in the spring of 2015 where I will live my dream job of working with cars. AP literature is one of my favorite classes in all of my high school career in Hartford and in Slinger (I went to Slinger my freshman year). And guys... MRS. PARKER PLAYS MAGIC THE GATHERING!!!
