The pursuit of happiness can be achieved in many ways and people mostly associate happiness with getting everything they could dream of. It is possible to achieve happiness just from the desire of our dreams, because it give you something to look forward to. If there is a desire for
I was born on September the 7th of 1994 in the San Francisco Bay area, not very far from Silicon Valley. The year I was born President Bill Clinton signed the North American Free Trade agreement with Mexico and Canada which helped to stimulate economic growth about twenty years ago. Living in California made my Dad the open-minded liberal that he is today, and because of his love for discussing politics I was raised listening to him have friendly debates with my very republican grandpa over every economic issue from climate change to healthcare. For about a year and a half after I was born my parents, older brother Daniel, golden retriever sandy, and I all lived in a classic colonial style home just south of Santa Clara Valley. My father was the breadwinner in our family working as an engineer for Portola Packaging. A job he was offered not long after graduation from a small private engineering school in upstate New York called Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. My mother also worked full time but as a loan underwriter. After being offered a great relocation package by Portola to the east coast my parents quickly decided to pack up our house and move to Pittsburg Pennsylvania. In addition to being closer to our extended families they also believed that raising a family in Pennsylvania was far
My Voice Each individual is created to live their life uniquely. Each person has their own beliefs and opinions. They shape how one perceives others and how one affects others whether it be personally,locally, or globally.
Waking up that morning May 21 2015 with a big smile on my face saying today I made it! Senior year was kind of a struggle for me trying to make top 10% of my class, work 2 jobs and attend extracurricular activities and groups such as ROTC French club ,Spanish etc. and manage a social life .It was a lot on my shoulders being that I goofed off my other years. Each day that year I would wake up and motivate myself to keep pushing and pushing to I reach my goal .There was nothing stopping me I mean nothing at all people would talk saying things like “oh he’s not going to pass you”. Friends would doubt me but that just pushed me to grind even harder .yeah I’m not gone lie there was many days I wanted to fall back into my old ways and skip
Destiny to Destination The pursuit of attending college has been a personal desire and goal for as long as I can remember. While maintaining a rigorous academic course load, I also had a passion for excelling in my music endeavors. My superior GPA and yearly testing scores broadened my career choices but made it difficult to discern whether I wanted to pursue something in the field of medicine, education, or music. The academics, experiences, and activities that I have been involved with throughout my life, definitely have shaped and encouraged me to think deeper about what it is that I would truly love to excel in on the college level and pursue as a life-long career.
The Story So Far This forced me analyze my life thus far, to recognize my fears and what I hold dear. It’s only been sixteen (one month till seventeen) years in this carcass, but I already feel like an entire life has flown by. It was like a prerequisite of actually watching my life flash before my eyes. This project was nice to sit back and look at what a social mess I am (one of my most favorite pastimes). But also, only being sixteen, I don’t hold what many would believe to be true values, dreams, fears, and identity. Nevertheless, this is what I have so far.
A Student’s Right to Success Education is one of the many things I am willing to fight for. I believe in everyone getting an education and succeeding in becoming who they want to become. The future many people wish for is based upon the education that they receive. I believe that everyone in the world deserves education, wherever they may be. Education should be a free thing that people can receive without anyone going up against them for just wanting to be educated.
I’m worn out. You know those days when you pushed yourself too hard. You know those days when you think you pulled a muscle, because you’re sore to the inner bone. You know those days when you forget to stretch before you run. Well, today is one of them. I got up and realised that my leg hurt really bad, but no amount of stretching could help it. I sat down and my leg feels like someone just cut it off. I sit there in agony, I’m worn out.
“Take It Easy” In life as people begin to grow up and get older, lots of things around you and in your life will begin to change. People will change and you will start realizing that not everyone you know is good people to surround yourself around in life. As you get older you should become more responsible so you can grow up to be the successful human being. Life and time flies by and can be taken away from you at any given moment, always have fun and use your time wisely, and make sure you aspire to be the best person you can be.
“Wrap Your Soul Around It” The way I imagine it, no matter what age or stage you’re at in life, looking toward your future is a daunting task; which is how I currently feel. Sitting in the bedroom of my parent’s house, thinking about the future that lies ahead
What I tell here might sound as a cliché, but to me this is a reality that I infinitely suffered from and ultimately enlightened by. It is true that people discover their true limits of their capacity when they confront something that is inconceivably unendurable. To me what was unendurable was the fact that my mother had cancer, and the grim scene of leaving her. While contemplating about whether to mention this at all, not knowing how this will be perceived and evaluated, as this might be seen as common and repetitive and, worse, fake, my heart said I ought to, as this is true in my life. Now I risk being repetitive as nothing else other than what I am about to say defines me and represents me. I was schooled about medicine in a dim world, in a corner room, where I strove to understand her physical problem and resurrect her falling hope. This was done through drugs and diversions, through humor and compassion, through words and tears. This dark

Nursing is considerably a challenging and yet a demanding profession, therefore will require various skills which l believe l have in order to embark on this career and make a difference in people’s lives.
English Research Paper Heading off to college is a big ordeal and it’s important that I’m prepared for all the things I’ll have to face without the help of prior preparation and research. I would like to be prepared for all the financial and time restraints that I’ll have to deal with. The stress of studying for all my classes will be enough to deal with, without the stress of finding ways to pay for all the things that are associated with growing up and going off to college. I would like to be successful and I don’t find college to be a necessity to be successful but I do appreciate learning and I’d like to learn all I can, because knowledge is power, plus it’s what my family would expect from me. And if I’d like to keep receiving health insurance,
Waking up, eating or not eating breakfast,brushing my teeth, dressing up, getting my bookbag, putting on my shoes, running to the car, going to school, taking classes, talking to friends, get picked up, eat dinner, do my homework, brushing my teeth going to sleep, and waking up again. I do the same thing every day, how? How can i keep doing this, this routine. What is my main motivation that is keeping me up? I remember reading a quote on a fortune cookie, what it said was “happiness is beside you, you just have to find it". There are many reasons for us to live on in life, different motivation, a meaning. Some live to teach others, others want to just live a peaceful life. But what is a peaceful life? I would remember when i was younger, my happy times, but those happy time were only happy to me, there were time where i would see my mom and dad arguing and yelling at eachother. Me and my two other brothers would go to a separate room and play games of things such as hid and seek. We were naive of the relationship between our parents.then came to the fateful day, it was the end of my fourth grade year, summer just begun. That was the day our mom took us and rood off to fayetteville. We came here by a mistake. That mistake was the best thing that
The Stressful Life of College Students Modern life is full of demands, frustrations, hassles, and deadlines. Everyone experiences stress as it is a natural part of human life. Our bodies have a built mechanism for responding to stress. However, during a certain period of time, people tend to face more stress than usual. One of such periods is college life.

Students spend most of their time balancing classes, projects, tests, final exams, personal life, and work; that is enough to make anyone feel overwhelmed. This stress can cause multiples problems, not just emotional, but physicals as well.
