Recently a closed loved one of mine has tried committing suicide multiple times but has failed or been stopped. They are now seeing help but I took it very hard when I found out and even harder when I heard they tried again. August accepted the fact it happened and knew her sister was in a better place. I admire how understanding she was and looked at her death as a reminder to live each day as if it were your last. However, if my close loved one did commit suicide I don’t believe I would take it as well as she did, considering how hard I took it from just finding out they tried.

I have had many teachers throughout the years that have had a great impact on my attitude toward education. No instructor however has had such a huge impact in my life as Miss Mindy Sopher. I first saw her name as my academic advisor listed in My Pack Portal, or my online account at NC State. I had no idea what type of experience I would have with her. Last summer before my freshman year, I sent her an email introducing myself and she was quite impressed by my ambitions, especially becoming a “geographical engineer.” I couldn’t wait to meet her in person at my orientation.

I needed to free myself of any street activities in order to prosper.
This semester became probably the easiest time I had at the deaf table, perhaps over the summer I acquired greater confidence. Noticing several friends at the deaf table, I realized several of them were seniors, and had started the countdown to graduation. A friend of mine, Leah, related that she has decided to apply for an internship this semester at North Carolina School of the Deaf located in Morganton. Quickly I realized that this school existed when my uncle grew up and he attended, I related my connection to that school. Also, I recognized Marissa Richardson, and caught up with her by questioning about the drama department.

Sadie calls a meeting at lunch where they can talk about what they are going to do this week.
While interviewing Anna, I learned many interesting things about her family life, school activities, and hobbies. The first topic Anna and I discussed was her family life.

(Waldman)” The age range that Waldman provides as the time she actively identified as being anorexic as well as the periods in which she was in recovery, “As I dipped in and out of recovery after college, my disorder started to morph, losing any illusory claim it could have made on wan, heroic reserve or glamorous pallor or what have you,” both work to confirm to the audience that she has insightful knowledge of the disorder in both its active and inactive stages. The dynamic between the two sisters is interesting as well because it is widely known that twins often share an especially deep bond; in this case, anorexia was another aspect of their lives that they shared. Because this is a personal account, and the author has shared her own feelings and/or experiences, it makes it more difficult for her argument to be
Jessica Krob is a sixteen year old girl who just had her life turned upside down. She just recently moved from Springfield, Missouri to Leachville, Arkansas, and is currently experiencing culture shock.

Applying to be a resident assistant is one of the best and most rewarding decisions that I made in college. Without my experiences in Residence Life, my college experience would not have been as rich as fulfilling. I was a freshmen women’s RA for my first two years as an RA and I always look back fondly over that time. Although there was definitely a lot of struggles and conflicts that occurred in my freshmen modules, that’s really where my heart is. Over my past three years as an RA, I have always been interested in hearing about and learning about the experiences of other freshmen women RAs.
