I am a firm believer that in order to be happy and successful, you need to have a job that you love to do. This ideology is what motivated me to want to become a nurse practitioner and help the people in my community. Attending California State University, Los Angeles is allowing me to pursue my academic goal of getting into the nursing program. I aspire to get my bachelors of science in nursing to be able to become a registered nurse. After gaining experience as a registered nurse, I will pursue a master of science in nursing to become a nurse practitioner. A job as a nurse practitioner will allow me to look forward to going to work every day because I know it is something I will love to do. Once I have gained experience as a nurse practitioner and have a stable job as one, I will pursue a doctorate of science in nursing. Being able to treat and help patients fascinates me, therefore every step I take will be worth it.

According to The Maker 's Eye by Donald M. Murray, there are seven elements of the writing process that we must surpass to consider ourselves an acceptable writer. Murray states, that when a competent writer review/revises his or her writing, they are typically searching for seven key elements: Subject, Audience, Form, Structure, Development, Dimensions, and Tone. (131-132). We can conclude from this that it is vital for us as writers to take into consideration all seven elements; as they are all essential for the health and satisfaction of the manuscript. For example, if we do not give attention to the audience aspect when writing are manuscript, we are not allowing our readers to take heed to our material because we fail to connect to a target
In my past years of writing I have seen myself develop into a well disciplined and patient writer. However, I have seen myself significantly improve and mature as a writer over the past few months more than I have in the past four years. I view writing as an open doorway full of ideas, feelings, and thoughts weaved together simply for creating a masterpiece. Before entering college English 1010, high school students are conditioned to write required papers and assignments without having the ability to “put you’re your own opinions and feelings in a paper.” Fortuantly,I have been given the opportunity at The University of Memphis to express myself in writing
What I hope to gain by participating in Roosevelt’s Graduate Assistantship is continued knowledge and success. As I reflect on my collegiate experience, I have endured on a long journey to get to this point in my life. Hard work, determination, and unwavering faith has helped get me to this point. I want to continue to be inspired and hope to inspire those that I cross paths with. I hope that by participating in Roosevelt’s Graduate Assistantship I am able to continue to push myself beyond the limits. A continued personal goal for me is to not only be the first member of my family to go to college, but also be the first to obtain my master’s degree. At an earlier age it was instilled that knowledge and education the ultimate key to success.
This Semester of English Comp was very helpful in learning how to use your writing to persuade audiences about social issues in the world. Not only from my own writing but from others as well I have learned new techniques and ways to make my writing more persuasive. I feel as though I know have a good handle on how to persuade readers that there is a probably, how to provide evidence that supports a solution for said problem, and how to make smart writing decisions.
My ultimate goal has always revolved around English. More accurately, it has revolved around literature and the writing process. Anyone who has ventured into the mess that is my bedroom can see that I love books—I own over two-hundred them, ranging in authorship from Homer and Shakespeare to Orwell and Rand—but what many people do not know is that I love to write just as much as I love to read, perhaps even more so. Thus, while it is true that I have always known I would be attending OBU in pursuit of an English degree, it was not until I actually began my college career that I expounded upon my writer-oriented goals.
The summer before my freshman year at IUPUI I had three goals I told myself I would accomplish. I wanted to hold a leadership position in at least one student organization, create relationships with people that would last far beyond college, and graduate in three years,. I knew who I was; therefore I knew accomplishing these goals would require challenging myself and truly stepping out of my comfort zone. I believe I should be apart of IUPUI Top 100 students because in a few short months I can proudly say all my goals were met.
The Harsh Nature of the Mentor Entering high school, finding a major in the humanities was all I knew for my plans after graduation. After a year of still not making progress in discovering my academic passion, I finally found my guide: my sophomore to senior year English teacher, Dr. Fellinger.
Craig Raine's poem A Martian Sends a Postcard Home (as cited by Thiel, 2005) employs the use of diction and syntax to reconstruct our everyday world from an alien perspective. This reimagining through language inspired me to create my own short story in response to Raine's piece, drawing on the flipped view of the world and aliens. In the process of creating my response piece I came across the issue of having to create a new context to look at the world in. My intention for this piece was to create a new worldview in order to bring a new appreciation of what mankind has created.
My personal goal is to be successful and financially stable in my career and life. I come from a community where that goal has not been easily attainable for most. I am from the Wind River Indian Reservation in Ethete, Wyoming. The path to my current educational achievements have been filled with many obstacles. However, I have found a way to overcome those obstacles and graduate with my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. After graduating from college, my professional goal was to work my way to a management position where I could use my education to help the company reach its goals. As of December 2017, I was offered a position as a Finance Director at my community 's local housing authority. I have now set a goal to once again further my education to help me be successful in this new position. What has and will continue to motivate me to pursue this new degree is my family and my community. I would like to show my children and the people in my
Writing plays a vital role in people’s everyday communication. For university students, writing an English composition constitutes a difficult task, in which the use of cohesive devices is one of the major problems. The reason why researchers focus on the role of cohesion in writing so much is the fact that cohesion is assumed to contribute to the coherence of any piece of writing. It is argued that it has a facilitative effect on text understanding and is regarded to be related to essay coherence. The aim of this study is to investigate the cohesive devices in each one of the subjects’ compositions.
