Learning to read and write was not an option; it was a requirement. “School will be what makes you succeed in life,” my parents and educators would say. I did not realize how hard it would be to read and write; however, it came natural to me, in the beginning. Struggling many times, several people did not believe in me; however, that never stopped me from wanting to gain more knowledge as I grew older. There has always been more positive people to motivate me whenever I needed inspiration.
When he was 4 his dad made him start piano lessons, and the piano lesson kept going for 10 more years (Stambler, 1989). When Billy was younger he decided he liked boxing and music, but he liked music so much he wanted to start a career on music (Schlesinger, 2008). After Billy decided he wanted to do music for a living he got in his first band group, the Echoes (Stambler, 1989). Billy played with his band for many things. He would stay up all night and play with his band, so he knew music is what he wanted to do.
First, when I entered the middle school I got shy and my academics skills increased. I think I increased my academic skills by having not having much friends and them not being in my classes. So I didn’t have no distractions I just focused on school. I also played more sports such as basketball and football. I did well in school to make my mom proud, I got honor roll three times that year then after sixth grade ended I realized my academics were not to make my mom proud it was to make me feel proud of myself.
At a young age, I constantly wanted to express myself through music. I always found a way to incorporate music into my daily life, whether it be by blasting my favorite music, creating my own funky songs, or even having the opportunity to participate in my elementary school choir. My love for music actually took flight after I had decided to join my elementary school choir, however, in my opinion, it is not the most transformative moment in my life. After elementary
Trying to find a job to fit in with my school hours has been very time consuming. When you don’t have a job your parent's give you an allowance and you have to make sure you have fuel in your car and stay in budget. Second challenge is doing good on all my courses. Studying more for test and quizzes will help me do better. Adjusting to
Kayla and I were accepted again the next year, along with another friend of ours. My second year was more enjoyable than my first, as I discovered I enjoyed singing to almost an obsessive liking. The longing of becoming a plastic surgeon had gone away in the two years, as I realized I had bigger dreams that involved being on stage, performing at award shows, or making music in a studio. As I grew older, I found I had more potential. There was no sense of attraction to do a “normal job;” I did not want a normal life that would have me doing the same thing every day.
I wanted so many things like nice cars, house, and family, however, realized I would have to work for it. As I grew older, I learned that my family had worked all day and all night to have a roof over my head, food on the table, and cars for transportation. I learned to find a job, to achieve dreams I wanted to have. Next, Soto says, “I tried to convince them that if we improved the way we looked we might get along better in life” (3) In this part, Soto didn’t really understand the affection and value behind family like myself.
My grandpa taught me about the sport and I just immediately got hooked onto it. Ever since I learned about the sport I would always go to the driving range to practice and to try to get good at it. My parents didn’t think it was a good idea at first because I was only a year old. I was also taught on how to act on the course and to control myself if I hit a bad shot. Golf fits my personality because it was the only sport I really was interested in and that I wanted to be part of any sport and that’s how I learned about
I wanted to be social, but sometimes felt intimidated by older kids. In the spring, I joined the lacrosse team, a sport I had never played, and soon made many friends from all grades. One senior, named Ben, was someone I looked up to and admired. I still remember how intimidated I was of him and yet by the end of the season we were good friends. Just like in Vietnam, I started to realize that being shy around new people could keep you from becoming friends with them and there was nothing to fear.
I started working and driving. I was really excited to start growing up, but now that it 's actually happening, part of me wants to go back and just be a kid again; with no responsibilities. I 've been through alot this year; it 's been stressful but it 's the start to a great future. My moment of epiphany was
The show became a very important part of my childhood because if I didn’t watch it I felt an emptiness inside so you could say I was a little addicted. Song 4- Not Afraid by Eminem Although when I was a kid I was afraid of everything once I reached the age of 9 I decided that I was going to become a very adventurous and outgoing person. During this time I kept repeating to myself in my head that if I didn’t let go of my fears I wouldn’t be able to accomplish anything.
I ended up doing my report on Notre Dame anyway, and while researching the topic, I started to fall in love with the assignment. Listening to the other reports somehow made it easier for me to understand the evolution of music; it made it easier to understand why music is the way it is now, and where theory comes from. After that, I began to do something that I’ve never done before: accept anything and everything a teacher throws at me. If a teacher assigned something that I thought was “pointless”, I wouldn’t put much time and effort into it.
The most important thing for me is an enjoyable environment in which my potential for learning can flourish. Coming to UWSP I found myself missing that environment, everything else I found enjoyable except the environment for learning. I need my own space so I could focus in my studies, and sadly it was too late when I finally realized that the dorm life it 's not for me. I was a high honors student in high school and I wish I could transfer that into college, but this semester has been extra hard to keep up with regular hours of studying.
1. State of the Law: Under the Free Exercise Clause states that Congress cannot make any laws prohibiting anyone from religious freedoms.

The local laws prohibited Santeria sacrifices but the laws did contain exceptions for animal killings under acceptable and hygienic circumstances and for other religion-related purposes, which included kosher slaughter.
Clara Barton Throughout the course of human history, nothing we do has ever had as rapid and drastic an effect on history as war. Disasters would be near second place, and coincidentally Clara Barton affected both.

Clara Barton was revolutionary for her influence on society and medicine in American history.
