Working in America is a daily grind that nobody would admit that they actually enjoy; however, working is an essential agenda that most people follow. Due to my past work experience, I have learned quite a lot about what I desire in the near future. I am currently 19 years old, and have maintained a consistent income for the past 5 years. Additionally, most of my peers and friends have lacked to attain similar work experience, which is something I believe has propelled myself into a headstart. Also, one of the greatest things about my work experience is the job diversity I have possessed.
During harsh weather like freezing rain and when it was 105 degrees outside. It always seemed like the same people were made to go get the carts as well. Only a few other co-workers and I who had not been at the store that long were the only ones to go get them. Also a big thing I did not like about the job was the crazy hours and how the schedule was never
I began to worry because being six pounds over meant that I could only eat a little bit each day, and work extra to lose all of the weight. The next day I barely had anything to eat. I didn’t eat anything for breakfast, and for lunch I only had a sandwich and an orange. Practice after school was very difficult because I had very
Another reason they are not a traditional family is because of how they have to live. Estevan is a trained English teacher but is working nights at a restaurant to make money since he can not get a real job because he is an illegal immigrant. They also have very little possessions in their name compared to how normal families live. This is shown when Estevan and Esperanza are leaving with Taylor to go to a safe house in Oklahoma. “Estevan and Esperanza had one suitcase between them and it was smaller then mine...I had packed for a week, ten days at the outside, and they were packed for the rest of their lives.” (Kingsolver 251).
. . She interested him because her hair was red and thick, and in it she had placed a huge orange bow, nearly the size of a small hat.”(Rylant) Both the boy and the girl where too oblivious to realize that there were in fact sparks flying around, as if it were the fourth of july. Even after this grocery store encounter, the girl with the orange bow couldn’t bother to check the time so she could visit him when he was working, instead of not seeing him there for a month. “Incredibly, it was another four weeks before they saw each other again.
We were not even allowed to have our cellphones for the week ahead, and therefore disconnected from the outside world entirely. Normally, I feel an urge to check my pocket to see if any alerts come to my phone; however, as the week progressed I began to do so less often. By the end of the week, my compulsion to use technology nearly vanished. Throughout the first few days after my return home, I periodically checked my cellphone far less often than I did beforehand. However, my habit has revived as a result of returning to our metropolitan area which has such a large reliance on technology.

This semester I read the books con academy and partially through touching spirit bear. This was an insane to see myself even do that I have not read a single book since the 5th grade. My goal was to read 2 books this semester, I thought that it would be hard but not impossible. Turns out it was harder than I thought it would be, I barely got through one. Reading is a fun experience but a really hard one to focus on.
I’ve never been around other people other than who I went to school with or grew up with, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to be out of place going to a different state meeting new people, or if I was going to be treated just like everyone treats me at home. As I was packing my bag, I didn’t really know what I should be packing because I didn’t want people to be judging me for wearing something different than what they were wearing. Looking through all my clothes, I decided to pack only scout shirts since it was a scout event and everyone
Unfortunately I procrastinated with my preparation and did not start packing until the day of the trip. As I rushed to put my gear together I tried to remember everything I was told to bring. I remember asking myself “was this going to be enough?” I sat there looking at the meager amount of warm clothing I managed to scrounge up. “I’m sure I’ll be fine.
