Albert Einstein once said, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” Although I was not born with the best bike, I have learned to pedal through all the hardships—and that has made all the differences.
I don’t recall having a hard time learning how to read. It was one of those things that just came easily to me for some reason. For the most part I enjoyed reading as well. The only time I didn’t enjoy reading was when I didn’t understand a certain word or a certain phrase. One of the strongest memories I have from learning to read was when I was unable to pronounce the word “the”.
“Some days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and not every day is gonna be a good day”-unknown. If someone thinks counterproductively, that person’s situation won’t improve. Just as in Hanging Fire, you are shown a fourteen-year-old girl who is depressed and has to battle overcoming her poor circumstances, who struggles with body-image, who possess a very judgemental outlook, and doesn’t look at the good side of things.
Since the sixth grade, the blank page of Microsoft Word has been one of my biggest obstacles in writing. Collecting my thoughts, organizing them, and then articulating them was a struggle. Over the last several years I have felt as if my writing has plateaued. Time and time again I found myself staring at the computer screen desperately trying to start my introduction paragraph. Feeling a need to change I enrolled at University of North Georgia in English Composition 1101. Within six classes, I began to understand why my writing appeared to be unorganized and difficult to follow. I was lacking structure around my thoughts and ideas. Professor Hinds explained to the class that an outline would ease our efforts in converting our ideas into words. I soon realized that a detailed and concise outline was the answer to the majority of my writing struggles.
Social imagination is the false creation of understanding of their social position and allow an individual to think broader from the everyday routine and construct of societies workings. It promotes a sense of awareness and possibility in an individual “gauge her own fate only by locating herself within her period, that she can know her own chances in life only by becoming aware” (Mills). Sociological imagination allows us to correlate interpersonal interactions with our environment in order to understand the on impact our life experience. with the There is a path followed in response to what and individual experiences that will lead to a certain social outcome. I have grown in two separate communities both somewhat distant from each other
Upward Bound with Tarrant County College along with AVID at South Hills High School have guide me through my high school trajectory. During the last 3 years AVID has helped me speak up and diminished my self-esteem issues such as speaking to other mates and creating what we called an AVID family. Upward Bound has been a catalyzer for me to learned how to managed my finances such as loans, budgets, and banking services. Since I was the lead of my family both organizations helped me become a more experienced person at a younger age. More than a college readiness program AVID and Upward Bound are the dispensers of life lessons and the nest of future leaders.
My thematic pathway consists of three classes: Introduction to Music, Introduction to Sociology, and Digital System. The first two classes were taken in John Jay College and the last one was taken in my first semester at Buffalo University. These classes come together to qualify my global pathway under the topic of Design and the Build Environment. Nevertheless, I am still not sure how they assimilated into this topic to develop our critical thinking skill and analytical skill to approaches the problem solving as how it descripted on the website. Furthermore, it really gives me a tough time to make these classes echoed each other. However, I will attempt to connect these classes together and explain how these classes correspond to each other
On my 2013-2014 deployment with VFA-32, I was busted down from a Second Class Petty Officer to a Third Class Petty Officer. Towards the end of cruise my shift and I were tired and worn out, but that was no excuse for what I did. I take full responsibility of what I did as well as the consequences for actions. I was the night check shift supervisor, and we had a 28-Day Inspection to do that night. It’s not hard work just tedious. The job consists of dropping the fuel tanks and cleaning the Bru-32 feet from which the drop tanks hang from. We also have to get the AD’s help to drop the tanks because it’s there equipment. They were swamped with maintenance, as well as my shop. The idea was proposed to just sign off
As the smell of diesel fuel filled my nose every breath I took and the sound of Five Finger Death Punch filled my ears, I thought about what was back home. The green grass, my bed, my wife, my dog Barrett, and the smell of bacon. While I was day dreaming, my squad leader, Glenn Martin, we call him Roman, shook me out of my dream of the sweet treats that can only be found in America.

I will accomplish this goal by diligently working in my classes and saving little by little to open up my clinic. Auburn university will help me accomplish this goal because I would receive the proper material with your rigorous curriculum. and with your state of the art facilities I would be successful in my
Oops! Not again! It seems every time you write a paragraph you mess up, with the most obvious mistakes, like comma misplacing, transitions, conventions, and sentence fluency. In the past I have made quite a few mistakes in my writing. Hopefully, I can fix my weaknesses. First of all, sentence fluency. Trying to phrase something that is very hard to phrase can be somewhat difficult. I can try to improve this weakness of mine by writing what I need to phrase on paper first, then work with it for a while until I figure it out. Next, I really need to work on conventions; I need to know where to put commas. One way I can improve is, I can be more careful and alert. Another way I can be more aware of where I put my commas is by proofreading and making

‘Who am I?’, ‘What do I want to do in my life’ are questions asked to me many times throughout my life- by my parents, my teachers and my friends. Every time they ask this kind of questions, I always give them, the exact same response or something along the lines of- ‘I don’t know’. One thing I realized after losing 2 of my best friends is that I am someone that needs companionships and
