Making a Difference In July 2014, Jarrett J. Krosoczka gave a speech titled “Why Lunch Ladies are Heroes,” during which, he talks about thanking school lunch staffs. He tells the audience how they often feel unappreciated and unimportant. This speech was given at a ted conference to many entrepreneurs and adults. Even though many in the room were older, he aims to reach all audiences. His main goal is to encourage people of all ages to acknowledge their lunch staff.
As a result, when she returned to Hong Kong a few months ago, I was exhilarated. Wanting to show her all the local great finds I have tried in the past year, I actively invited her to go out with me, perhaps a little too much. My friend did not consent to my every invitation, yet it was of a small issue and did not affect our friendship, though secretly I wished we could go out more often. The quarrel worthy of notice and evaluation occurred a few weeks ago. Originally, I had to work on weekdays.
I really was happy I finally came to India. I put on my headphones and enjoyed the ride. After a long ride, we were finally at the hotel. It really looked amazing, better than the pictures and I got really excited with this trip. I honestly didn’t plan what I was going to do, but I knew it was gonna be a good trip.
I quickly turned around and saw a kid I recognized from Mr. Wagner’s class. “Hey, come sit with us!”, he offered. I was surprised at first, but then overjoyed at his offer. I practically sprinted over to his table, which I promised to myself I would never do later on. I barely ate my homemade lunch trying to listen in and involve myself in conversation.
People all around were smiling and friendly. Communication was challenging, but I had a phrase book that helped. They very quickly offered me food and beverages and would not let me pay for anything. They invited me to diner and I even spent the night in one of the family’s home. It was an experience I will never forget.
It’s a nice and warm day. I can’t wait to go and see the neighbors and play with them around the town. There was this amazing place that I saw on my way home yesterday, that I’ve thought about taking my friends there today. Since there’s no school, I would love to take my friends there today. I think that they will enjoy it as much as I did when I saw it yesterday.
I was very nervous and scared, but the letters that my family gave me did do something. The letters my family gave me made me happy, but I was getting homesick from them(Carpenter 84). I appreciated the letters and all, but they didn 't do too much from me really. In addition to the letters, I had to endure the many deaths of my best friends(Carpenter 83). Obviously if you are in the army you’re going to have to endure these kinds of things.
I enjoyed watching all the families and visitor’s like myself admire California and to be having what appeared to me a care free vacation! Those are always the best. Lastly I’ll mention the delicious fruits and food I was able to eat. The fruits were really fresh and ripe. I could have eaten the fruit for each meal of the day.
That 's why meeting you have been one of the most rewarding moment of my vacation. We only met a little over a month ago, but from the first moment we met, we clicked. It’s a great opportunity to meet people like you, who exudes confidence and with whom I know I can have a lasting friendship. You have such a special personality that lights up the entire room. Thanks for the fun, craziness, wackiness and silly things we do.
Without a doubt, Vicuña would be my choice of travel because of the amazing memories I made this past summer while studying abroad with CIEE through their High School Summer Abroad Program based in Valparaíso, Chile. In Chile, I lived la vida porteña, which means “the port life”. Sure, in English it may not sound so appealing, but there was this energy that could only be found in streets in Valpo that brought out the best in me. I found myself counting the hours down to when
