Growing up, for most people, going to college is not an option- its an expectation. In our society, going to college has become a fundamental part of our education, becoming an adult, and for most people just simply part of our lives. However, as people grow up and experience reality, the realization hits that college may not be as simple as once thought. As much as attending college is expected from the majority of young people, dropping out of college is not. Even with the idealization of the college experience, some students are forced to cut their education short due to a plethora of issues.
This mainly is about what I want to do with my life as I am coming to the point where I will have to make a decision on major life choices such as where I want to go to college, what field I want to go into, and many others. I never really gave it much thought before this point and this leaves me wondering what could fit my interests and allow me to have a fulfilling life. Unfortunately, I haven’t found my way yet, and I am still currently looking. This further adds to my confusion as the time for a decision is hastily approaching me. After my brief time being emerging adult, the next stage of development I will encounter is the stage of adulthood.
I am not that young nor old. I imagine that most people in my age group do not reflect on this topic as much as they should. Although it is never too late to start on your legacy, I would say that I am at the best point in my life to build a legacy that I could be proud of. As the author ends the article, she states that now is the time to start developing a legacy that we want to have. She says, “if we have neglected the development of the spirit for the sake of the material, we have the time now to think again about what it means to be alive, to be full of life, to love all of life, to be full of God.
When the topic of volunteering would be mentioned upon me and my peers, we would most likely change the subject or disperse. Volunteering is something that is rising in our generation, yet is hidden in the shadows at the same time. In Kent Ansen’s essay, “Should the United States Establish Mandatory Public Service for Young Adults?” the author tells the audience why public service should be mandatory. I believe that volunteering is an amazing subject that comes with unbelievable benefits to the person and the environment that is affected by the, but at the same time, should not be mandatory for everyone. In my lifetime, I have had multiple times of public service.
She values her friends more than her family because she believes she can relate to her friends more than her parents or sister. For example, “She and that girl and occasionally another girl went out several times a week, and the rest of the time Connie spent around the house”, (Paragraph ,10). This line from the text tells how Connie spends more time with her friends instead of her family. The effect of Connie not spending time with her family makes her lose family values and the chance of connection that could be made with a family relationship. To continue, with her spending more time outside of the home, than in the home, she picks up values from her social life with her friends.
But I wanted my mom to enjoy her time there, to enjoy the feeling of nostalgia. So I had to overcome the thought of being killed there and just enjoy my time there. I ended up enjoying my time there after overcoming my fear and had the best time i could with my family. It wasn't till we got home that i found out my mom was just as scared as i was and maybe even more. It was then that i knew i had to make a change to help my family.
As a teen what was inspiring me was social expectations and I didn’t realize that losing weight also mean’t lowering my risk of health complications. Feeling this type of love coming from people who used to treat me badly helped me create my self-esteem. The reason why I say create and not enhance is because my self-esteem was non-existent before this point. The feeling of self-worth in me was finally starting to grow. I started to feel like a normal kid.
It would have progressed my paper and maybe I could have talked to some of my family members who didn't attend college and find out their reasons. It is because of them that I was inspired to write this paper in the first place. So these are the reasons why kids do not get the chance to attend college and one day maybe we all will make a change so this does not have to be the
Judith Viorst writes about cross-generational friends in “Friends, Good Friends – and Such Good Friends.” As she states in her article these types of friendships can have a special type of intimacy that other friendships do not possess. Often you will share more with a cross-generational friend because they have been where you are and understand on a different level than your contemporary friends. I have a very close cross-generational friend whom I share almost everything with, I feel comfortable telling her thing that I would not tell to the majority of my other friends. There are many times when I know that I would not have made it through a situation with my sanity intact without her advice and
Coming to Ashesi, I believe I haven’t been that much of a servant leader because like High School, I’ve kept to myself most often and this has prevented me from looking beyond myself in order to address the needs of others. However, the little we have studied in the course so far has opened my eyes to see servant leaders in action and how their work has benefited those around them. It has stirred up some kind of desire in me to improve the lives of the people in my community and this is outlined in the story I hope to be a reality by the time I am a hundred years old. My name is Zaneta Asare and this is my autobiography at age 100. I graduated from Ashesi University in the year 2019 with a BSc Honors in Computer Engineering.
Part of my rationale for selecting this therapy, is that during the movie the entire time I was thinking that although their issues are significant I did not sense that as a couple theory were so far beyond repair of the marriage. My thinking is that Solution Focused Therapy would be beneficial in not only helping to deal with the current issue(s), but helping the couple become more effective in dealing with future issues. I would redirect Ben and Katie focus to the strength and positives of their marriage, along with each of their desires. Solution Focused Therapy realizes that the solutions may not be directly related to the problem (Gehart, & Tuttle, 2015). As I watched the movie I notice many strengths in the relationship that somehow were lost in the strain and issues of the marriage.
I agree with the book about the stages of relational escalation because it explains how we communicate and develop relationships with others. For instance, when I am going to meet somebody, I tend to think about how the other person will react when meeting me. I believe that during this stage first impressions are extremely important. In addition, I do agree that most of the time relationships do not escalate past the initiating stage because very few relationships tend to develop a greater level of intimacy. But, I think that sometimes the first two stages of relational escalation vary.
Would you volunteer for this organization again? Why or why not? Of course, I will. Moreover, I have plans to persuade my sister, some of my friends and people who take an interest in volunteerism and social development. The Hub Childline Foundations gave me lots of good experience and good memories even though there are many facing problems come to me sometimes, but that makes me learn to resolve riddle and grow up because in daily life of mine didn’t happen that much.
