I run my life from moment to moment, knowing the fact that I can not run a marathon anytime soon. That may be a little misleading, sounding as if I go on immense adventures and take in everything as I go. What I actually mean when I say this is that I do not preoccupy myself with anxiety for problems of the future. I have my goals and I will take the steps necessary to accomplish them. My family 's overarching pessimism and anxiety demonstrated to me that I had to pursue the opposite mindset in order to thrive.
After achieving the goal of running thirteen miles, I want to push myself even more and try a triathlon. While training for this triathlon I have learned how to swim better, have biked sixteen miles, and got an even better time in a 5k run. This has been the most intense training I have done in my life so far. Even though, it is hard training for this triathlon I think this will be a good experience for me. My coach has taught me to aim higher in life and to try new things you would never expect to do. Now I have different mindset towards things and enjoy challenging myself.
“What’s that thing on your face?” was the first thing I heard when meeting a new kid for the first time. Although this type of greeting is generally considered rude, I was never ashamed of my birthmark. My mother had convinced me that it was an “angel kiss”, and that very few babies had the privilege of being kissed by an angel. Those who were, would have a mark forever. At first glance I looked pretty normal as a young boy: two eyes, a nose, a mouth--the usual, but as I met other kids, I realized that they were staring at the bright red birthmark that dominated the left side of my face. About an inch in diameter, my hemangioma birthmark, commonly known as a “strawberry mark”, was a real conversation starter.
In class we talked about different study methods, my plan is to utilize them when fall comes. Currently I have no classes to study for, only papers to write and articles to read. In the fall, however, I will definitely apply these study methods. The most important one, I thought, was writing notes longhand. I never owned a laptop throughout highschool, so I always took notes on paper anyhow. My plan was to start typing notes in college, after LSC 101, I have decided to continue my practice of taking notes by hand. Remembering the material I learn is the most important thing in most classes.
Three ways that I am currently reducing my ecological footprint are unplugging things when they are no longer in use, turning off lights when not in the room, and energy efficient appliances. When I am not using the toaster, chargers, or the rice cooker, I will unplug them to avoid increasing the electricity we are using. If I am not in a room I will turn off the light to avoid wasting electricity. If I am in a room where the sunlight coming through the windows provides light we turn off the lights as well. In the house there are energy efficient appliances. The washer and dryer, energy efficient light bulbs, water efficient toilets, and the showers and sink have low flow fittings.
The environment where you were raised can be determined on how your life is gonna planned out and how your life is gonna be like. I was raised in a good/bad environment of we moved and lived. I have lived in Kirby, east-side, and wind crest. The reason it was good because of wind crest and the bad was the east-side because the school i went to mostly made of drug dealers, and gang members. I felt like that i was going to fall under their influence but i moved in the right time because i was beginning to slip. Nobody 's family is perfect but my family has its ups and down however mostly ups. My family is very supportive at all times, whatever i do, or did they were very supportive and they can be very loving, caring and very calmed at times.
From the day I was born, I was instantly labeled by the people surrounding me. To the eyes of many, I was to be a gang child, someone to drop out of school, and someone that merely existed to never fulfill their dreams. Some, many of my close relatives decided that there was no use fighting for something better and instead turned to drugs and gang violence.
I see a few areas where I could make some small changes that would help improve my diet and help reduce my risk to a lifestyle disease.
My altered landscapes project explores how every individual has environments or places that at some point served a significant purpose in their life. For some, this could mean their grandmother’s house because it reminds them of when they were 5. For others, this could mean something as simple as their favorite coffee shop.
For as long as I can remember, coding has been my background, my identity, my interest and my talent. It has been a journey that I began back in the ninth grade; a never ending affair for the world to see. The first thought I have upon waking and the last thought before my daily rest.¬ Code is the only thing in my life, that has always completed the tasks given to it, was never lazy and it never let me down. It is a very interesting story actually.
The concept of identity is something that changes as much as the world. Throughout Asia, Africa, South America, and parts of Europe for young people it means that they are farmers and are soon to be married. Throughout the modern world, it means school, family responsibilities, college, and jobs that allow them to spend money freely. We all have a our own identity that makes us different from one another beyond our skin. There is no cultural identity there is only self identity. What makes me, me, what gives me an identity that is different than anyone else are the parts of my life that I go through everyday, where my family comes from, and how I was born.
Nutrition is a primary source of energy, productivity, and wellbeing. Maintaining a healthy diet promotes good health, wellness, and healing. My personal goals to improve nutrition include: balancing calories to manage weight; decrease high amount of sugar, snack foods, and high caffeine foods; increase amount of vegetables, fruits, vitamins, and minerals; build healthy eating patterns; and increase amount of water intake.
Growing up I did not have one single environment like most people did, I was constantly facing new situations and meeting new people. However, there is one environment in my life unlike any other children of my age experienced or ever would, and that is spending most of their childhood at a flea market.
My Utopia looks different in certain areas, some areas are more like very futuristic giant cities, with sky scrapers, and very tall buildings. There would be very many video game, and sci-fi movie characteristics, for example, Star Wars. In the 2nd movie, there are giant buildings and flying vehicles. The vehicles fly through the city above the clouds. Then outside the giant city, there would be more old fashion houses, and other older fashioned buildings. But there will still be futuristic characteristics about it. A video game to represent the old fashioned area would be Fallout 4. In this game there are small neighborhoods with some very old fashioned houses, yet also have futuristic elements, like robots, or machinery. This is where all
Do you want to have a perfect body? Nowadays, it has many restaurants and the roadside food stall that makes other people has a chubbiness. This is a reason that makes other people neglect to have a perfect body. But some people also want to have a perfect body. We must have many methods for fit and have a good health. For example ; Chris Murphy says “Kelly Brook is perfect for science, the research took into account body measurements, age, face, lips, nose, and hair. The model has stated many times that she had suffered because of her body.” (2016, Chris Murphy, 22nd) There are many ways in improving myself such as an exercising, a relaxing, and the way to eat.
