They may have both been voyagers, but being as their trips were both 400 years apart, there were countless discrepancies. There were no planes or any other approaches to travel in the 1400s. There were many new discoveries and inventions to help Lindbergh on his expedition, such as planes and navigation tools. Things were far more advanced in the 1900’s than in the
He has grit because grit is being tough and doing something after you originally failed to do something. That is exactly what Brian Arnold did. In 2013 he fell on the last obstacle in Stage 3, then last year he failed early on stage 2 just a few days before, beating stage 3 for Team USA. In my opinion Brian Arnold could be the
My parent's divorce was a great impact on my life and how I was raised. They split up when I was about 10 years old, me and my brother became split up because each of us wanted to live with the opposite parent. My life felt like it had been flipped upside down, and even to this day it continues to feel that way. Living with my mom rather than my dad has showed me many things. Rather than growing up and getting everything handed to me, I had to work and earn things for myself.
My situation was just a poor judgement as to whom I decided to have a child. It was not the ideal situation, but with the support of my family, I did not see any issues to being an active duty single parent soldier. The first four years it was a breeze, I was able to excel in every aspect of my life and what was expected of an healthy soldier. I was able to obtain college degrees, attend military schools, attend high level of military training and most importantly, I
When I say all I mean that some families could be deported, so my parents got their citizenship in order not to be afraid of being forced out of your own home. For example I always as a kid wanted to go to sleep over, but my parents said no because they didn’t know the parents. Another time my sister wanted to hang out with her friends, but my parents said no once again then my sister said you can meet my friends my mom said let me think about it, so she did and my oldest sister went to meet up with her friends. In the end my sister was allowed to go, but it took some time for my sister to get permission from my mom to get to go out with different people other than family. Their reason makes sense, but my sister hates that they do this.
Mine and Sara’s personality are different by how we approach situations and make decisions. Nevertheless, the connection that Sara and I have is more of a companionship. Mine and Sara’s hardships in discrimination and taking care of our family bonds us but it is our unique personalities that set us apart. Nonetheless, this unity is shared with everyone so no one is ever
The most important lesson that I have attained is that home is where your family is. After worrying so much about all of our material goods, we finally realized that it's not about the beds or dressers that make a home, it's about the people that surround you that make it home. The people that make you comfortable or bring out the best in you is where you call home. Over the past year, I had to call many different places 'home', but I have realized that those places were not my home at all if my family wasn't by my side. I believe God is always trying to teach us new lessons.
It was just that I tended to ignore them or to underestimate their importance. While learning to be a teacher, everyone always told us, "be strong", "do not take to your heart", but
I guess this was part of adapting to the new schooling life but anyway my schoolmates were not making adaptation any easier. To me, every single moment in the school was completely worth it. I treated every moment as a propeller towards success. Every move inside the school compound had repercussions but I figured staying out of everybody’s path and focusing on education is all that mattered.
In the end, being able to face my fears head on, I was able to be alone with just my children and I in our own place. It has forced me to be successful in making my own decisions and become confident in them. My success is that I can go to school now, work a part-time job, have help at home with our children and the household duties. It may not seem like much to most but to me overcoming the small fears have led me to believe that I can overcome any obstacle that comes our way, together, as a team.
It was misconception, however, because attending this school would bring even more than those I had before. My parents could never be able to afford this school for me, but that didn 't stop me from desiring to live in a place where I knew, opportunities were around every corner and I was right. My University has been so generous since the day I stepped foot on campus and has provided me the support I need to be successful. My responsibilities are still in tact, I 'm working hard to stay in good academic standing, balancing work and organizations, and helping out at home the best I can from hours away. The doors that have opened since I decided to attend Texas A&M are those which I would have never came into contact with if I had failed to believe in myself as well as the Aggies who were immediate to congratulate me when I did.
In the process of bearing and raising a child, two people must come together and contribute both genetics and personality traits to this blank canvas of a person in order to create who they are. However in this process traits can be lost or gained, some are more prominent than others, and as you experience the influence of others and go throughout life your family begins to impact you less and less as it is diluted from a passion burning inside of you. Throughout the majority of my life, I heard of no others lives other than my own. Whenever my family would visit other family members their situations would not be much different.
If you were to ask me what my dreams were before high school, I would have told you it was to simply be happy. Before high school I had such a simple life and could only think the endless possibilities I had waiting for me in the future, but now that time has come and everything is becoming a reality. All throughout life obstacles will be placed in your path, but it was not until now I realized that they are not put there to hurt you, but to make you stronger. A while ago, my mom had been married to a man named Martin, who happened to be the father of my two youngest sisters, Wanjiru and Wanjugu.
When I started Unity High School I thought that it was going to be boring school because my first choice was Skyline but my mom made me come to this school so I had to obey what my mom wants because she takes care of me and helps me with whatever I need help with so going to the school that she wanted me to go to was the least I could have done. I thought that high school was going to be difficult because the work that my brother would bring home when he was in high school looked really hard and I did not understand most of the work he needed to complete. But I realized that I need to be taught the material before I go on and do the work
Upon my grandmothers death arose a fair amount of regret. My family was not available every family gathering my grandparents would host, which was a perfect opportunity to build a better relationship with my grandmother. I would always think about the amount of fun I could’ve spent with her if I put forth more effort into our relationship. Regretting the past is something that I know my grandmother will not approve of. As I sat in my seat as service ended I thought about the perks of being able to be with my grandmother at all times, and thought to myself that this event is the perfect opportunity to build a relationship with her in spirit.
