The human psyche is an incredibly complex system. It controls us in every aspect of our lives, rewarding us for a job well done while also making us feel guilty for each mistake we make. Our psyche is influenced by the world in which we live, by our immediate family and friends and also by those who we will meet during our lives. Each and every stage of life will result in us experiencing more, and in doing so, those experiences will shape who we will become. Our psyche is made up of three very important parts: the id, the ego, and the superego. The id is the primitive and instinctive component of personality. It consists of all the biological components of personality, including the life instinct and the death instinct. The id is the only part of our psyche which is present from birth. It is concerned only with the immediate satisfaction of our needs and has no respect for the consequences or impact on other people. The ego is the part which attempts to reconcile our id’s irrational tendencies with the realities of the world. The ego is tasked with working out realistic ways of satisfying the id’s demands, often postponing satisfaction to avoid negative consequences of society. The superego 's function is to control the id 's impulses, especially those which society forbids and to reward us when we do good (ideal
Throughout the past year I went through a great deal of undertakings that caused me to become more experienced with my skills and how to overcome various challenges. These really built up my character and the way I am today. In all aspects, this past year consisted of going to Killington, Vermont, my brother going into the Air Force, meeting him in Texas for his graduation of basic training, completing a double backflip on a trampoline, landing a front flip on flat ground, accomplishment of a 2 ½ front flip on a diving board, getting 2nd at leagues, and competing in districts. All of these activities have advanced me in a skill or challenged me to an extent.
On the about last week of March, I, Sgt. A. Walton confiscated an unauthorized Casio G-Shock Gray/Black/Light Blue in color watch that was sent to Nottaway Correctional Center by Offender C. Barker #1421016 family member.
Jerry wakes up in a dissociative state still hungover from the previous night’s drug binge, nullifying the pain with a fluffy, symmetrical line of Peruvian cocaine and a tightly packed bowl of luminescent green, trichome plastered cannabis nug sourced from California out of his Illadelph bong; naturally, Jerry was quite the aficionado in recreational drug use and progressive dependency. As dopamine floods his prefrontal cortex he’s invigorated with a renewed sense of grandiosity; he looks in the mirror, his eyes are sunken in, the pallor of his complexion is ghostly, an apparition of a once revered public figure. He averts his eyes to his many awards and commendations for a brief moment, before the cannabis takes effect. He brushes
For many, their formative years have a large influence on who they become as adults. This can happen in many different ways including new experiences, discovering a new sport or hobby, and uncovering what they are passionate about. For me, this was falling in love with a new language from a very young age and becoming very interested in the culture that was associated with it.
My parents are very different from each other. We all have different views on thing and school. I myself have only left the state once that was when I was like 2 months old my mom took me to Alabama to see my aunt and uncle and cousin. I love to fish and Longboard. I don't play too many video games. Also I absolutely can't wait unit I don't have to go to school any more. I will end up going to college one way or another because I would like a degree in engineering or something in that nature. I was almost put up for adoption when I went to Alabama. I have 4 brothers and 2 sisters. I only know one of my sisters. My mom lost custody of when I was little. I never met her. She is only like 2 years younger than me. I also play baseball. I have never went hunting or for that matter I have never shot a gun. I own 2 bows 1 for target practice and the other one is for hunting when i get older.
A middle-aged lady sitting patiently on the dental chair smiled faintly at me. It was my first time at Texas Mission of Mercy (TMOM), an event that provides free dental care to low income residents in Texas, and I did not know what to expect. I approached her and immediately noticed she was missing a front tooth. She introduced herself as Anne, and she told me her life story right off the bat. In summary, the culprit of her missing tooth was her abusive ex-husband. Despite her troubled past, she had a positive energy, but I could tell she was insecure about her smile. Finally, the dentist arrived back with her removable dental partials, and within seconds, he gave back the smile she deserved. When Anne saw her reflection, she immediately cried
It was the summer of 2012, my brother Ashton and I were in Hollywood, FL on vacation. We had been fishing since eight in the morning and we were bored out of our minds, so we hopped in a canoe and set off to what is the most thrilling event of my life. We were not prepared physically or mentally for what we were about to encounter.
As well as there is the other sentence in this article said, “They undoubtedly saw rainbow patterns in the misty spray, but were convinced they had discovered a fairy grotto.” I would like to visit South Island and Milford Sound again as last time I did not see a rainbow. I would imagine that I rotate my neck to see the rainbow, it would be as a heaven, discovered a fairy grotto. Event though, “Jessie explains that Milford Sound is actually a fiord, carved out by a glacier and then flooded by the sea, whereas a sound is a flooded river valley.” For my opinion, it seems that Milford Sound is just a fiord rather than a sound. However, it is still the most experienced traveller, which means you won’t regret to travel under the one of the most
"Please fastened your seatbelt" I felt my heart raced against my chest as I looked at my uncle waiting for him to translate. Coming into a new country with no knowledge about the language allowed me to foreshadow the upcoming years of my life here in America. The spring breeze from April at midnight gave me the chill down my spine, it was extremely cold for us. As we were in line to get our paper done I held my mom hands, deep inside I shed a tear because I can't comprehend the conversations that was bickering back and forth.
People go through ups and downs in life and those changes cannot be predicted. Every detail of a person's life influences them in some way or the other. The result could ultimately be good, bad, or a combination of both. However, in one's lifetime some events are more significant than others. Choking drastically at a state level math competition definitely influenced my life in unimaginable ways and was a low point in my life. This inspired me to improve based on those results. Since that happened to me six months ago, I realized how this event changed my life and totally changed my perspective on everything.
Challenging an idea takes a lot of courage. However, if a person fails to challenge an idea that he or she does not believe in, then that person is a quitter. On the other hand, if a person stands up to what he or she believes in, he or she is a fighter who is not afraid to express his or her own opinion. In the past year, I entered a science fair in my school. In my project, I used a common smartphone to analyze the color spectrum of certain dyes. I displayed great interest towards this topic and I promised myself that I would complete the project with the best of my ability. With that promise as a motivation I completed my project and was ready to amaze both the judges and the audience. Little did I know that the path I treaded on was not a straight one.
All throughout my years in school, I have experienced many lows and highs. I have encountered many different types of friends that have made me who I am now and those who have made me better than before. I’ve been through really bad moments; especially in junior high and elementary. I can still remember clearly the names I got called for being ‘round’ and dressed like a little girl. It got to me, but it didn’t stop me from me being me. I had the chance to remove toxic friends from my life and move on. During my childhood, I had lived with my aunt and cousins, as well with my parents. We were all under the same roof and did things together. My dad eventually didn’t get along with my aunt and uncle which ended bad. We eventually moved out and moved into an apartment. I had to sleep with my mom because my dad didn’t have the money to buy a two bedroom house. I lived under that condition up until junior high. Things began to turn out good and it was until then that my dad surprised me with something. He got a raise in his job and purchased a home with two bedrooms! I met new people and I eventually became friends with someone who ended up being my best friend until the end of junior high; we got
