Family is the biggest significance in my life, even if I did not have the strongest bond with all my relatives, because I knew I could count on them if I ever needed help. Relatives came from all over the United States to come celebrate with me, so I truly felt special that day.
Maurer & Smith describes geopolitical community as a geographical area or place (2013 ). My personal geopolitical community is a master planned community located in the San Joaquin Hills in the southeastern corner of Orange Country, California. It is geopolitical as it is surrounded by well-defined boundaries for easy identification on a map. In 2016, the city reported a population of almost 66,000. Phenomenological community is a community where members feel a sense of belongingness and membership (Maurer & Smith, 2013).
I would forever be grateful to my father, Paul who cherish me and provide me with good things of life and also gave me the best legacy which is education. Also I remember my grandma who reminds me that life is not a bed of roses and warns me that not all that glitters are gold. My Aunt, Rose
Growing up, I have always had an interest in geography and thinking about different countries and what makes them the way that they are. I have not been in a geography class since middle school and Human Geography was a class that made me think about things I have never thought of before. The readings of both Kropotkin and Mackinder brought up very interesting points, some that conflict and others that agree. Each author writes in a way that stimulates and makes you think about geography and certain topics in different ways which I find to be very rare in writings from this time period. Discussing Kropotkin’s and Mackinder’s general ideas, points they disagree or agree on, and my own views on the topic will all be discussed in this final paper.
In Prisoners of Geography, Tim Marshall argues that geography constrains and shapes all nations and their leaders. Their actions are limited by mountains, rivers, seas, and concrete. He argues that to really understand world events, one must also consider geography. Physical characteristics affect the strengths and vulnerabilities of regions. In his book, Tim Marshall examines Russia, China, the Middle East, Latin America, the United States, Africa, Western Europe, Japan and Korea, and Greenland and the Arctic.
In the chapter “Geography Matters”, Thomas C. Foster explains the effect of geography on a story. Geography contributes greatly to themes, symbols, and plot, and most authors prefer to use setting as a general area with a detailed landscape rather than a specific city or landmark. In Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, he does not reveal the actual region of America that the man and boy are traveling in, but describes the mountains and eventual beaches of their path. McCarthy might not have revealed their location because it might ruin the reader’s interpretation of the setting. For example, the pair come across a generic “gap” between mountains and this is a turning point because it confirms the man’s planned path to the south.
Life is all about making decisions. Making the right decision that positively affects yourself and others, and trying your best not to make the wrong choices that may negatively hurt yourself and others. The most important factor in why people choose to do something is of how it affects themselves and the other people around them because the outcome of the decision for them and others, in the end, helps mainly determine the choice for the person or persons. Paragraph #1:
Great people to be my friends, teach me, and raise me all culminated into me being who I am and I would thank every person I have been able to call a friend, family, acquaintance, stranger, and any other person that crossed my path. It seems to be a reoccurring theme to say “who I am”, but it’s just the glory of it; finally knowing me and enjoying life and all it has to offer and at such an early stage in my life. I am truly
A place where only three have entered, a place that includes creativity, a place that contains memories. You may be shocked to find that I am referring to my bedroom. My bedroom equals my sanctuary, my happy place, and my home well, in a home. My sanctuary is covered with items that describe me and showcase my experiences and all that I love. I am able to come to my sanctuary after a long and hard day to relax.
Throughout my review of The Geography of Nowhere by James Kunstler I gave assessments on many different issues. However, for Randal O’Toole’s The Best-Laid Plans I did not. O’Toole sees government as the problem to everything and thinks the whole planning industry should close its doors. However, there is some good to planning and while planning for up to 50 years is advance is a bit too naïve, there may be some good to have broad targets that can be adjusted every five years or so as town and cities grow and change.
My family is very inspiring to me. I am very thankful that my parents brought me into this world. Growing up my parents always showed me how exactly things work in life. One of the hardest things that I had to accept was that I could not have everything I wanted. There were times when my parents spoiled me
They have always encouraged me to do my best and strive for the best, they have always supported my positive decisions, and they have always helped me when I’ve been in trouble. My family has been there for me and each other through thick and thin, and I really love them. Their advice, support, and encouragement have incited me to endeavour for the highest possible achievements. My family is my major influence as they have affected my life from the very start of my life in everything I do.
As I stepped out onto the field, my gaze drifted upward. The sky was speckled with millions of tiny, glittering stars. We were so isolated out here that even the Milky Way was visible. I had never seen it in person before. That’s just one of those things that only happens at camp, the most magical place I know.
Living in a diverse world it’s distinction and similarities. The village is a small area with a small population. Life in the village is very basic and traditional while life in the city is full of luxury and modernity. Cities have a large population and it is often noisy and crowded. On the other hand, the lifestyles in villages and urban areas are totally different, but you can hardly find any similarities.
