I attended preschool at a place called ‘Kinderfarm’. It was a fairly large preschool with a lot of kids. The building was split into three parts, there was a red room, a blue room, and a green room. To this day I still have no idea what the criteria was to decide which kids were in which room. The only thing that I remember is that I started in the blue room and made a very good friend, Kirsten, and then goto moved into the red room.
“Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I 've done it thousands of times.” – Mark Twain Stop kidding yourself. You are not prepared to quit smoking. But that 's alright. The sooner you accept that you 're not ready, the sooner you 'll have the capacity to stop for good.
Me and my sisters constantly made different contest to see who was the true “gamer” in the family. I also remember playing with baby dolls with my sister. Believe it or not when I was younger I was all into the baby dolls, lipstick and yes the dresses too. From playing outside on the trampoline with no worries in my head to parents divorced and our family going through some things no family should ever have to deal with. My childhood was the ideal childhood and I can 't thank my parent enough for allowing me to have such a perfect childhood up until the age of 9.
I initially did not question the reasons that I incorporated both Mexican and American traditions into my life, but now I recognize how my identity has been shaped through my unique upbringing. Walking into my Kindergarten classroom was a quick awakening of the fact that I differed from others around me. I walked into school eager to share with others about the presents I received from the Three Wise Men as a result of the Mexican tradition that was celebrated at my house earlier that morning. Being the 6 year old self I was, I ran up to my friends to brag about my toys and
Being excited makes life way more enjoyable. When life is enjoyable, it is easier. The same is true with dreams. When someone has a dream, they will do anything to accomplish it, even if that means doing nothing for a little while. Dreams allow people to have more optimistic takes on life.
Although, I’ve performed well enough to succeed at many group projects. However, like the Natives, sometimes when they feel like the world was against them, their family are suppose to be the foundation, but the parents have issues and sometimes don’t provide the needed support. Above all, their secret is to never giving up and I feel the same as I have continued to strive at Belmont to complete my AET degree. They have also learned how to accept themselves and know they will change. I’ve also learned to love my family as I am away from home and genuinely listen to them as I see the Lakotas doing the same because they always listen to their elders or grandparents.
Give back to them for all of their hard toil. Being a child of immigrant parents makes you appreciate life so much because everyday it’s an opportunity to be the best you can be to make everyone around you proud. My parents can’t got back to school and get an education so being able to see me succeed is worth their hard work. My parents have taught me to never give up. I know that some doors may be closed on me but that doesn’t mean other doors won’t open.
I understand the issues that my family has and decide to be more loving, accepting, and forgiving to everyone, but mostly to my own children. Even though these issues continuously tear my family apart, deep down I know they care for one another. With my son, I will teach him the importance of family. Despite mistakes and flaws, family reigns before
My grandmother would also be my hero. She always does anything she can to ensure that I and everyone else in my family and her own friends are a safe and comfortable. She has also effected the way I have changed from the time I was a child to now. If she was not the person I know her to be then I guarentee that I would not be the same person I am today. When I was a child I did not care about the consistencies of things and now I understand that everything I do and change will end as something different.
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.
