One of the biggest differences between me now and I was younger is my ability to handle money. When I was younger, I wasn’t as careful, and if I saw something I wanted I would simply buy it. Like Eileen Brenoff describes in her piece “ Growing Less Dumb”, I learned from the experience of making mistakes when I was younger. If I wanted an expensive outfit to go clubbing in, I would buy it and figure out the financial effects later. If I decided that I was going to go shopping or go on vacation with my friends, I would just decide to do it. Of course, I figured out that I could not keep this up forever very quickly. Once I decided to move to the United States I realized that I would have to take care of my finances first, because I didn’t have

Today, money has made many people believe that you need to have a lot of money to live a great, happy life. People in the world, especially the people who don’t have as much money as the ones that do, look up to people like popular idols, because they have money. People think they have a great living life with all the money they have earned during their lives. In the short story “Why You Reckon?” by Langston Hughes, the author uses diction, colloquialism and dialect to express the fact that just because people have the money to go out to eat somewhere expensive or buy the newest clothes, does not mean that a person is happy all the time and expresses how people in the town talks. Money is what makes the world goes round and everyone has come
The age of technology began in the late 1970s and has increased immensely to the present time. The technological advances have caused people to question the intellectual levels of younger generations. Some authors have stated in their works that all people under the age of 30 make up the dumbest generation. I feel some of the people in older generations believe in a tradition that all people should know general knowledge that is taught in schools. In my opinion we are not the dumbest generation because technological advances has encouraged the current generation to learn differently and more efficiently.
Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. From a young age we have a strong desire to gain access to and pick up on new information. As we mature, different ideas are constantly being thrown at us, which forces us to reevaluate what we have been manufactured to believe. Although the idea is disheartening, we find that our innocence we have as children may have been used against us in a way that counterbalances all the concepts we were taught. From there on out we begin to acknowledge that there are other theories in the world that we were not considering before simply because we were not introduced to them.
In the textbook “Looking Out Looking In” from the section communication in romantic relationships authors Ronald B. Adler and Russell F. Proctor II state that “Communication skills are vital to making romantic relationships successful” (p.333). I selected this subject matter on the account of I believe that I related to it the most. For instance, being in a loving romantic relationship is not an effortless relationship to achieve; it takes arduous effort to be romantically connected to one’s mate. It is important to have intimacy, passion, and commitment in a romantic relationship. My wife and I work hard to achieve all three of these vital components of romance.

In the play Into the Woods written by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, Little Red sings the song “I Know Things Now.” I chose the song “I Know Things Now” because I can relate to the lyrics. Most of the songs in Into the Woods have a theme to them and the song, “I Know Things Now,” definitely has a theme of maturity.

After she strays from the path, she ends up learning to listen to her mother more, and she also learns about many other important life lessons.
The AVID program has had a positive impact in my academics, and in my life by helping me focus, enrich, and solidify my goals.
