I hoped to prove the fearful voice in my head wrong and succeed in a new environment; however, without the right support system, I began to fall. Making friends was difficult, I felt I was trying and failing, I was alone and socially anxious. Where does a lonely boy who’s
I still am me, but I am more open to deal with conflicts head on instead of accepting them. Learning From analyzing my crisis, I learned that even though it was an experience I did not want to have, it provided me an opportunity to challenge myself and go head on with something I disagree. It opened my eyes that I learn and grow from experience and by approaching different situation instead of avoiding them or relying on someone else. Because of this, I try to approach more situations and deal with them by myself, if possible, so that I would learn how to deal with situations as these with more ease and professional
I came from a Caribbean Island called Trinidad and Tobago was very challenging to adapt to the American lifestyle. On April 20th, 2004, I boarded a flight to the United States of America to visit my mom and sister. As I look out the window as the plane prepared for take-off, I felt a rush of anticipation to see what was so exciting about the United States of America that everyone had spoken so highly about but sadden that I had to leave my friends and some of my family behind in a place I once called home. Upon my flight after spending about 5hrs airborne, the pilot came on the speaker giving announcements about our approach to the “big apple” New York as they say. As the plane landed, I was escorted off the plane by one of the flight crew.
I really was happy I finally came to India. I put on my headphones and enjoyed the ride. After a long ride, we were finally at the hotel. It really looked amazing, better than the pictures and I got really excited with this trip. I honestly didn’t plan what I was going to do, but I knew it was gonna be a good trip.
All of this grew due to fear for their own bodies. Learning the streets would be the only way to survive at the time, but the author knew going to school would be the only way to survive in the future. Coates did not want to brutally accept this reality, so instead he transformed his fears into questions.
I full of excitement (Absolute), got to packing as soon as I found out. We got there by driving I believe my parents realized their mistake at about hour two because of hearing "are we almost there" every couple of minutes. We left at night so that we could sleep most of the ride, but I couldn’t, I was so excited. When we finally got there, it was amazing and all I had seen was the hotel room. We stayed in the resort so that things were more continent.
As a result, our legs were rested and our bellies were abounding. Later, everyone took a cab down to Sears Tower. Once we got to the last floor of the tall building, we stood on a window over the city. The bright lights lit up the charming city, and its glory. I’d say it was a splendid way to end a fun filled day.
The way I prepared myself for this book was on every page I had at least about three sticky notes stating the important facts and at the end of the chapter I had a one sentence summary stating the main idea opic of that chapter. This method I have found out has helped me the most it helps me remember certain things better due to my short-term memory loss. For my writing method, I tend to make outlines so I don’t get off topic. Both of my reading and writing method I have discovered for myself throughout my school years has helped me learn better and just in generally better myself academic wise.
My alarm went off at six on an early June morning. My body is physically not used to waking up this early, but the desire to go back to sleep was quickly outweighed by the mixture of excitement and fear of leaving. I was going to a third-world country on the opposite side of the world. After months of preparation through fundraising, learning about the culture and environment, getting shots, and praying for this trip, the day was finally here. I placed the remaining items in my suitcase that I would be living out of for the next three weeks and stepped into the car to head to the airport with my parents.
“Choosing Worlds” We are born into a world where we do not know a lot of things and become very curious about our surroundings. We are all chosen to live because of important reasons and as toddlers we obviously do not know much and living in a certain area all of our lives we do not really see what is in other different environments, because of this we do not know any much better. My family, friends and I grew up in a place where it could be toxic and unhealthy both affecting us mentally and physically. I have always thought of things differently and hopefully I can cause a change in the conditions from we live in. When I was first born I was introduced into a bright light without even knowing what it was, this is a life that has been given
