It is exactly this compact city that allowed me to know a lot about city life. I have also since discovered that city folk know very little about the world outside of their community, the greater city and the outside world. What I appreciate about growing up in a small town is that we were not cut off from the rest of the world. On the contrary, our little town gave us access to the world.
My hometown is a tiny little town surrounded by other tiny little towns, in the middle of New York State. The nearest city is Utica, which most people around here haven 't even heard of. After living in the same small town for 18 years, coming to Plattsburgh was a slight culture shock. I attended a high school with a graduating class of 105 students and we were one of the largest classes compared to nearby schools. Although I realize that SUNY Plattsburgh is not a huge university, there are tons more people that I am accustomed to interacting with on a daily basis and I definetley consider Plattsburgh a city.
I was born and raised in the city of Chicago, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Everyone from my father to my mother’s side of the family lives here, so if I suddenly leave to live in a different city, I would lose a big part of where I came from. Family is very important to me since I know I’ll always have some to look after me that is why when I think of Chicago, I think of all my family members here. Another unique thing about Chicago is how it’s always busy. Wherever you are, they are people running around trying to get to work, partying from night till the sun comes out, or protesting about something wrong with the government.
When I was younger, one of the first things people would ask me when we met was “Where are you from?” In response, I always said, “McKeesport”, but felt contempt every time that word left my mouth because I knew my hometown was a cesspool of poverty and demoralization. Even though I still know McKeesport is a bad place to live, the feeling attached to my response to inquiries about my hometown has changed. Instead of contempt, I feel determined to enact a citywide metamorphosis. Growing up, there were two contrasts in my life.
Company Overview I have selected the Thomas Keller Restaurant Group as the company that I will be using in the opening of a new restaurant. The company is a private corporation owned and operated by Chef Thomas Keller (Company overview of Thomas Keller restaurant group). I chose this company because the Owner/Chef is a world class Chef who owns multiple 3 Michelin star restaurants, The French Laundry in Napa County and Pre Se in New York, New York (Le chef américain thomas keller reçoit la légion d’honneur, 2011). Thomas Keller “is the only American chef to have obtained simultaneously three Michelin stars” (Le chef américain thomas keller reçoit la légion d’honneur, 2011), he currently holds seven Michelin stars, “3 Stars, The French Laundry,
For me, the South was so different from the laid-back pace of Honolulu but, in some ways, they had a lot in common. Savannah, GA has beaches and islands scattered near it 's coastline. Hawaii and Georgia each are obsessed with their regional fruits. Both places are filled with military servicemen and their families. Needless to say, I don 't feel like I truly have a "hometown" but, instead, I can make any town my home.
Throughout my high school career, I was forced into many situations where I was challenged to connect with my peers and serve as a role model for future students. Whether it be my involvement in the school marching band, or helping students in community tutoring sessions, I have always made it my goal to better the people around me through my own efforts. Throughout my high school career, I have put forth my best effort to connect with my peers, transform individuals, and make a difference in my community. Joining the school marching band at the beginning of my freshman year of high school was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Compare to other cities that 's more than McPherson. Some people travel a lot around the world, so many people have been here before. It 's a good place to kids to play in the park and go to the library too. They have stores for groceries too. People choose Kansas or Wichita because of their colleges.
I grew up in Wellston, Ohio and lived in the countryside about fifteen minutes from town. My house was a home to me and it wasn 't the greatest, but it was special to me. My big backyard consisted of many fruit trees and a grape vine, it was where I had bonfires with my family and friends, and it was where I ran free with my brother. I had a pond, “over the hill” as my brother and I would say, where we swam and fished in the summertime and sat on the deck feeding bread to the bluegill as we had conversations about life. Behind our pond was where thousands of trees stood tall and where we roamed every inch of the hidden land.
People take the places they 're from for granted or do not appreciate as much as they should. I reside in Houston now, but i will always know Baton Rouge is my home, and that’s where i want to raise my family and be able to look up and feel my dad smiling down upon us, this trip would have meant the world to him and i hope one day i will be able to look down while me and my son go to a LSU tiger game and see the pride and enjoyment that we had and what he has passed
Erica Sotello Paragraph writing assignment 2 Being a military brat, I 've traveled to many places; so choosing either the country or big city is pretty hard to choose from. I grew up and would love to live in San Antonio, Texas; which is a big city. My entire family lives there and a part of me wouldn 't want to live anywhere else so I could be as close as possible to them. At the age of 12 my family and I moved to Illesheim, Germany; which is in the middle of no where just like the country and there is nothing, but open fields. The thing I loved most about living in Germany was how quiet everything was, there was no loud traffic where we lived, the town and military base was so small that everyone knew everyone and we were all one big
When people ask me where I am from, the response will always stay the same, “Austin, Texas.” However, when you look at my records you will see I was born in Chesapeake, Virginia and later graduate high school from New Kent in Virginia. There is a large discrepancy between Austin, Texas, and New Kent, Virginia, so one may be intrigued or coaxed into asking why I claim Austin, Texas. When I was three I moved to a minute city on the edge of Austin, where I matured in that town, until I was seventeen. Moving to New Kent County a week before the school year started when I would soon turn eighteen.
Thomas Keller is an American culinary specialist, restaurateur, and cookbook author. He and his point of interest Napa Valley eatery, The French Laundry in Yountville, California, have won numerous honors from the James Beard Foundation, remarkably the Best California Chef in 1996, and the Best Chef in America in 1997. The eatery is an enduring champ in the yearly Restaurant Magazine rundown of the Top 50 Restaurants of the World.
Peter Drier states that Hellen Keller is remembered for being deaf and blind but not recognized as being an activist and overcoming her physical disabilities. Peter Drier challenges his readers to see past Hellen Kellers Physical disabilities and instead remember her for being an activist for social change, women 's rights, and peace. He states "They don 't teach when the blind-deaf visionary learned that poor people were more likely to be blind than others she set down a path of a socialist." Hellen Keller set down a path for social change. In the article Drier states that "in 1909 Keller joined the socialist party and wrote several articles in support of her ideas" Keller after joining the socialist party received a lot of criticism saying that she couldn 't make good opinions and statements because she was deaf and blind. This however is not true, being an active member in a socialist party is not an easy task and somehow she still found a way to get there and she never gave up,
A city is a good place to continue the further education and to find a suitable job. A city can provide government facilities to its people which makes easy to sustain the life and to perform the task. In addition, the city may be regarded as a relatively permanent concentration of population, together with its diverse habitations, social arrangements, and supporting activities. Cities might differ in cultural aspects and from other types of human settlement and association. Today I am comparing and contrasting my hometown, Kathmandu and the city I am living in, Colorado.
