Countless responsibilities you take on in life are alarming, but in my opinion, they always make you stronger. One of the responsibilities I had to conquer was taking care of my 4-H goat, Clover. What I didn't realize, was that it was more challenging than I expected. I, also, did not conclude that even though it was chaotic and exhausting, it made me better with animals, and now I can spend more time with them and be careful around them. I feel that this experience changed me for the better.
So my mom taught me to not be negative or rude to those who had that one barbie everyone wanted so bad. But when we did have money, I would get rewarded with a toy because I would be doing good in school or behaved well at home. However when it came to my older siblings, they weren’t gifted with the same opportunities like me. My brother and sister were high school drop outs, so they really didn’t set the right example for me. Their actions led to me setting high standards for myself because everyone in my family thought I would be a highschool drop out like my siblings.
Chores also teach you responsibility. If you do your chores and do them the right way for a week you could be rewarded. Even though the rewards may start out small, for example getting to go shopping, your parents will see how you are becoming more responsible and will let you have more privileges and bigger rewards. As you grow older you will see why chores should be done without being paid and that if you were to be paid that once you moved out of the house there will be no one to pay you for when you get your own house or
She was there for me when nobody else was. She still managed to put food on our plate and a roof over our head as a single mother with 3 kids. For that, I am grateful. For that, I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for the struggle, but still try to push forward to provide for
Our coach said ” even though they are bigger doesn't mean they are fundamentally sound as us’. We tossed the coin and got home so we got a little lighter and was happy about that ,but
My grandmother’s family had invited me to participate in farming and agricultural activities to pass the time. This confused me increasingly. I’ve never farmed a day in my entire life, and the family insisted that I helped them. I agreed to help them farm, not knowing what may happen next, which led to more confusion and stress afterward. The farm was not clean, to say the least, as there was mud and dirt everywhere that ruined my clothing.
Most of all I am thankful for my mother. She did not have to immigrate to the United States for me, which makes me appreciate that my future success would be because of her. I must say my experience being in a third world country was not just a vacation but it was a life changing stage that had turned me into a humble, generous, and thankful individual today. Do not get me wrong the first time I found out, I was going to a place like this I thought was God punishing me terribly. Given that, I had to get used to their living conditions, food and seeing what they do just to survive each day has taught me more than my characteristics of the person I am now.
I know how hard she works to give me an education and that’s why I value school and give it my all. Many privileged kids here in the U.S don’t take the opportunity many of us wish we had. For example, wealthy parents that can afford to pay college. I want to go to college because I want to give my parents a good future. Give back to them for all of their hard toil.
Once everyone was done eating breakfast, I also insisted on washing the dishes. Throughout the week, my mom has the role in our family of washing the dishes, but I wanted to give her a break as well. Later on in the day, my family and I went out with my dad’s side of the family for lunch. While we were out, I also paid and bought my cousins and I smoothies from a Chinese restaurant. Finally at night, my sister asked me to help her clean up her room and usually I would say no because of how lazy I am, but I decided to be kind and help her as well.
