I remember my dad telling me that if I want to earn my first car, I need to work for it. I did some part-time works so that I can earn. My parents of course helped me with purchasing. They shouldered about half of price. My father told me that buying a car is one of the most fulfilling experience I will have in my young life because I can see where my money is going.
I know how it feels to be left out, and let me tell you, it’s not fun. This year, I have been working my hardest to be someone others can lean on. My main goal right now is to be a friend to everyone. Sometimes, it’s hard to go and talk to the new girl or sit by the boy on the end of the table, because we fear that others will judge us for it, but in reality, that is far from true. When people see that you are kind and caring, they will begin to look up to you.
My friend don't understand me, they don't understand why I act out like that, they don't even tried to understand it. Once I think why I have no friends, I find out, I have to change and improve myself. Before, I wandering for friends, but after I change myself, I become an insider. I got friends, but even I have friends, I could see some outsider with no friend. The insiders act kind to the outsider, only when they are face to face.
Thesis: I agree with Ralph Waldo Emerson because I feel that you have to try to stay the same person and not change your way of life because of something that has happened to you in the past. I agree with Waldo Emerson's statement, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment” because if you change yourself because of something that happened to you, you will never be the same person everyone knows. Another reason is peer pressure. You always need to be the same person because change can be very bad and affect your future. You can notice if something happens to a friend and they change, and when you see that you need to help them break that change because it will stick with them forever.
I struggled a lot not only in English, but trying to adapt to this new life as well. Thus, I experienced loneliness and sometimes the fear of losing this new opportunity. I repeatedly felt the same day after day, and I yearned to go home the moment I arrived at school. However, there was something in my mind that urged me to keep going, to never give up. This voice I remembered, was my dad’s own strength to assuage my fear and to support me on my new journey.
It provides the chance for each person to make individual choices with the prior restrictions they were rooted too that limited them to very little success. There may even be a chance when the America Dream may change again but even so, the duties and responsibilities still carry on with the changes. Work hard, save and spend little, and hopefully send your children to recieve a better education and understanding of life so that they can do better than we ever could. From whenever the American Dream first started....it still prevails 'til
But I still had my culture try to blend both of it together and fit in. But the consequences of not fitting in is bad, your family won’t talk to you they will kind of like disown you. Talk mess to you until you come back in the culture once you are in there is very high exceptions. But the rewards are that anything happens toy money or in trouble the culture family will help you out raise money for you just to get out of the predicament. The advantages of being in the culture you know they got your back, but the faults are once you’re out you can’t come back
Everyone has a responsibility to do. However, for working student like me that having a part-time job while taking college courses is a big responsibility. I decided to go to school full-time and work part-time to learn to become independent. In the essay “Working at Wendy’s” by Joey Franklin, he makes a case for setting aside pride to provide the daily needs of a family. On the other hand, I think it was great to have the experience as long as it made me more money.
I understand Troncosco’s context through my own background. His parents came to United Stated as an immigrant and support him even though his parents doesn’t know much English. Troncosco’s parents also set expectation as the same as my parents did to me. “Highest expectations for moral behavior, for self- respect for being good to others.” My parents came to United Stated when I was eleven and I remember how much they wanted me to learn how to be responsible and follow expectation as to respecting others. So, when Troncosco mentioned about his parents, I remembered how my parents used to tell me the same because I understand how much they have sacrificed their life to bring me
There were times when my parents spoiled me but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish. Having two other siblings helped me prevent the want of being selfish. I do not know what I would do without my family. My family is very inspiring because they show me all aspects on how I should live my life through their experiences like education, parenting, and work ethic. My family’s past experiences also teach me how to live my life the best way possible.
