My Life

...there was something missing in my life. I tried many different things like learn how to knit or exercise, but still there was something missing. Until one day I felt unhappy about my job I felt that I can do but of course I wanted to get paid. About five years ago I decided that I wanted to further my education so that I can make more money and be able to live comfortably instead of check by check. But for some reason every time I tried to enroll something came up. This past weekend I decided I’d go for it without giving it a second thought and here I am. I spoke to my family about it after I enrolled and was amazed at the response I received my husband said “Go for it babe” my children said (at the same time) “Go mom”. I felt good about my decision. With a college education I know I will reach my goal. I currently work at a Children’s Rehabilitation Center I am the Senior Front Desk Manager there but I am more than positive that I can make this place run much better than how it is now. I realized that every time I mention an idea to my boss she makes the changes and she’s glorified for it. I learned to keep my ideas to myself get my education and take her job. My goal is to be able to make positive changes in my life in its totality with a college education I can make more money and be able to live comfortably. I would like to one day own a home and a vehicle, I would like to take yearly vacations with my family, and I would like to see the world. Mr. Williams Shakespeare......

My My Life Impact

...At a very young age I had to grow up fast and help my mom out with the kids. It was five of us at the time, our dad went to prison and left my mom with everything. When my mom went to work I had to be a mom when she was not there at times. I had to put away my teenage ways and become a parent. It was very hard at times because my sister's and brother had respect for me instead of our mom. I got devastated at times, but I pulled it together. I had no life because I was being a parent to my siblings. In high school I was a very troubled teenager who did not have a sense of direction. My grades were not good the first 3 years of school; it was up and down from there; but I always got through it somehow. My last year of school I pulled it together and made honor roll the whole entire year. At the end of the year I received a reward for my accomplishment. At that moment I felt very important that year. After High school I enrolled in college as a criminal justice major, everything came back to me and I fell in the same situation that I was in when I was back home. When I left home to go to college that was the first time I felt like I was on my own, I did not have to be a parent anymore, and I was only responsible for myself. The two years that I had attended I was not ready for college. My focus was having a life because it was taken from me as a child. I enjoyed being a free with no curfew . The school suspended for six months, I never went back to school. At that very moment......

My World

...Now onto my wants, goals, and ambitions, I think they are pretty achievable and not too ridiculous. What I am currently striving for is to be accepted into a college that has a great pre-med and technology programs so that I can complete my double major in a medical science field and in computer programming. The reason I am going for these fields is because for the longest time, probably for as long as I can remember I have always had this amazing drive to help people anyway I can, even when I was a child when I saw someone that was hurt I was always there asking if I could help in anyway, and computers and technology within the last five years or so sense eighth grade when I had my first computer class I have found that I have a talent for working on, creating, or operating computers and most technology in general, it is very easy and I find it really fun, and truthfully it is extremely fun! Now there is a reason why I set it up this way, we have been over the wants, and the goals, now my ambitions which derive from my goals and wants. The end result of all of this, my ambitions, are to end up with a successful job in either of fields that I plan to major in, let god take me to where I need to be, my “calling” so to say and to help as many people as I can either through the power of medicine or through technological advances that may save someone’s life, and of coarse buy a home and start a family but that’s the overall basic thing that nearly everyone wants. We have......

...Sandra Hunt My Life and Music HU 300-10 Professor Robert Vaughan Week 7 Assignment My Life and Music From the very beginning of my life (born in 1970) music has always been a prevalent part. Once I can relish in the joys of remembering when. Music has been a constant source in recalling happy moments. Music is a current source of preference when I’m sad or content. And just knowing the comforts of music will always be a part of my future I hold as a treasure. The music I associate with adolescence (12 years old) are songs like “She’s a brick house,” by The Commodores. Michael Jackson’s Thriller and all of his music. The song entitled “Physical”, by Olivia Newton-John, “Eye of the Tiger, by Survivor. “I Love Rock N Roll,” by Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, “Ebony and Ivory,” by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder, “Jack & Diane,” by John Cougar, “Hurts So Good,” by John Cougar “Abracadabra,” by the Steve Miller Band, and who can ever forget the song “Hard to Say I'm Sorry”, by Chicago. I also liked “Rosanna,” by Toto, “I Can't Go for That,” by Daryl Hall and John Oates, and “867-5309/Jenny,” by Tommy Tutone. I listened to a variety of music and loved it all. My parents sang and listened to Southern Gospel Music, so I also grew up with The Hinsons, Dotty Rambo, The Happy Goodmans, and many more. The music I associate with childhood (about 8 years old) is “You Light up My Life” by Debbie Boone. “Three Times a Lady”, by The Commodores my......

My Life didn't evennotice.                                        My sky became cloudy and Mytears were the rain.  I love you!  Oh, if you'd only listen. I really love you! I try to say it in the quiet of the green meadow and in the blue sky. The wind whispers My love throughout the treetops and spills it into the vibrant colors of the flowers.   I shout it to you in the thunder of the great waterfalls and composed love songs for birds to sing for you. I warm you with the clothing of My sunshine and perfume the air with nature's sweet scent.  My love for you is deeper than the ocean and greaterthan any need in  your heart. If you'd only realize how I care.  I died just for you. My Dad sends His love.  I want you to meet Him. He cares, too. Fathers are just that way.                                         So please call Me soon.  No matter how long it takes, I'll wait because I love you.                                                                                   Your Friend,                                                         Jesus Friday morning (September 17, 1999) I was reading the paper and noticed Darrell Scott (father of Rachel Scott, a student who was killed at Columbine High School) was coming to speak Sunday afternoon at Two Rivers Baptist Church in Nashville.

...Oriental. My mother went through cesarean while delivering her youngest son, which is I, “CD”. My parents call me “CD” because of my initials, which is Christian Dale. My family has 4 members including myself. We lived in a small room in a bus terminal in Tarragona, Davao Oriental when I was 6 years old. We were not that poor but I can safely assume that we had money for food. My father and mother had no work and the only source of income that we had was to sell food to the passengers. As part of the family, I, too, helped in selling food like “puto”, noodles, “bingka”, “mani” and etc. We also had our special “halo-halo” which is only 20 pesos at that time. I am the one who grinds the ice before putting it to the glass then my mother would finish it with her finishing touches. My mother always praised me when I am working hard to earn money. My brother was attending school and he was grade 1. I was not attending school because of financial problems. Every weekday in early morning, my mother and I go to school to sell fresh “puto” and “bingka” to the teachers and students by riding a motorcycle, which is owned by “Angkol Tope”, and every time we pass through the classroom of my brother as I saw him writing his lessons, I was envious. I was fat back then, I mean very fat that my father would always pinch my cheeks when he sees me, every time. He and I are very close. The bus terminal was near to the shore so when my father and I had free time, we always go fishing for dinner.......

...Ahmed Al-Matari Professor Marine English 111 October 30th, 14 Personal Narrative Life is all about making choices, but some of them can even change our life. Four years ago, I walked out the Washington Dulles International Airport for the first time. This was a significant event that changed everything about my life and me. Although leaving Saudi Arabia was a tough decision to make, I knew I would be leaving my family, my homeland, and my friends to go to a far-away place to seek for a better life. My parents supported my decision because they believe life is wonderful and the world was big. Arriving in a new country was exciting and discomforting. America is a wonderful place to live, which is full of adventure and challenge. I was highly fascinated by the Western culture. Although I lived in a westernized household and grew up in international schools, I learned English since I was a child. However, my writing and oral abilities tend not to be adequate. I had to study hard to improve my English, so that I can understand the people and the language more. Since I came to America, I made great progress not only foreign language but also adaptive capacity. I believe the most significant part of my life is when I was able to cope with the social differences I faced in two different countries. The most important social differences that affected me and made me who I am today are family, religion, and gender equality. Family is one of the most important parts of Arab......

...Ikran harbi 07/19/10 Eng 101 For as long as we live on this world, we go through different experiences that change our lives. This can happen through contacts with people, family members and events that occurred which change one thinking for the rest of his or her life. My uncle had great influence on me because he strongly believed that anything could be achieved through hard work and determination. For example, he started to go school when he was fifty years old and he learned a lot and now he has his own business. I also I started school at an older age because of lack of financial support form my parents, I was unable to continue with my studies. He used to make walk long miles to school every day and our school was very far from our home almost two hundred miles. Also, have come home for lunch because my school doesn’t provide lunch for students One the other hand, I was the oldest girl at home so had to do all the cooking, cleaning and do my homework at same time every day. Next, my uncle is person that cares about education than anything in life because he believes that education is start point of ever thing in life. If I receive anything below an A plus, he would want an explanation. Also, if I receive A in my all class, he rewards me. Finally, my uncle achieved everything through hard work and determination. He was an independent person who strived to do everything by himself with little help from others. All in his......

...23  1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.  2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,  3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 1 1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.  2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.  3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.  4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.  5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.  6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish. John 3:16-17 16  "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through......

My Life

...My life of 34 years, have been filled with love, happiness, trusting friendships, and a little disappointment from myself. Growing up I had an imagination incorporated with dreams and the feeling that one day I will make a difference to people. I did not want to be famous, however, I had a groaning from inside that I will be important. My journey has taken me on many trips, befriended many, and accomplished some things I was ok with. In this brief summary of my life I will give great tribute to a humanistic psychologist named Abraham Maslow. When I read about him in my psychology class at Olive Harvey College when I was twenty years old his theory was interesting but was not understood at that time in my life. It was not until I was 33, enrolled in a beginners psychology course at Chicago state university, I finally payed attention to his theory of life. The self- actualization stage was where I was at in my life; this feeling inside me was the desire to full my life to its full potential. Becoming all I can be. I had a house, I bought on my own, a job at the University of Chicago for twelve years, and a well rounded well behaved daughter. That was not good enough. My thought was what’s a house? what’s a job? I can be more than a phlebotomist with an associate’s degree in child development. There have been many people who have shaped me thinking and the way I view the world. My mother was my primary caregiver .she married my father, unfortunately, was separated from him......

...Carlos Olea-Tapia 9/02/15 Mr. F 5 paragraph essay Standing out I was only ten when my dad first told me not to be like the rest of my fellow students. He said, “The only two things that matter in this world are family and being who you are.” From that day on, I, Carlos Olea-Tapia, took these words seriously. It wasn’t easy since I was born on March 8, 1998, and at the time a lot of things were happening in the year 2000. The media was tough to face since everything out there was either mainstream or popular so I stared to look for alternatives such as listening to underground bands and reading books. School wasn’t easy either. People don’t like change so when they saw a kid like me they would make fun of me or admire me for being who I am. I’m now seventeen and I’ve been changing ever since. Elementary school and middle school were both shit like literally some kids made my life a living hell. Elementary school was probably the worst; I was bullied by many kids until one day I came home and told my mother, my mother straight up gave me permission to punch any kid if bothered no matter what the school consequences were. That day I stood up for myself and showed the world that I wasn’t going to take shit from no one. Middle school was a little better. I made quite the name for myself. By the end of eighth grade I was known as a pimp and I liked it. That reputation continued on to high school by then I was no longer a pimp I was a drug lord. I wore the best of the best......

My Life

...Hellingly voluntarily. My doctor, Dr. Lepak, had been telling me to come here for a couple of years before I actually did come here. I think it was the constant crying and self harm, among other things. I came to Hell, as I like to call it now; on March the sixth 1972 and I’ve wanted to leave ever since. I have been an inmate here for seven years, two months, and thirteen days. Hellingly is like a rat trap. It’s easy to get in, but once in, impossible to get out. I came to Hellingly diagnosed with manic depression; this meant that I could hardly sleep. I just lay there thinking, torturing myself, about all the things I have done wrong in my life. This caused me to have episodes. It was like the devil himself took over my body, which caused aggressive behaviour towards inmates and nurses. The thing is, I was never aware of the changes in my behaviour. However, after an episode is over, I am always shocked at what I have done. When I first came, I had a special episode, which made me take a chunk out of a nurse’s forearm. As it was my first, they didn’t know how bad I would be and as they watched I charged for her apparently. This was all told by my neighbour, who thought it was brilliant, the next day. My neighbour, Rudy Thill, is my first and only friend here in Hell. I couldn’t really handle more than one friend. I’m not very good with people, and neither is Rudy. Rudy is well educated he speaks with great knowledge and understanding of the world. He worked as an artist...
