When I was about seven years old, about a week after school got out for the summer, I burnt my entire stomach with boiling water solely because I was trying to cook Kraft mac and cheese with the sun. If there’s anything I learned from this experience, it’s that if you need to say something, don’t keep quiet. When I was a little girl, I had always hated barbies and disney princesses with a passion. I thought they were stupid, and the barbies I did have were hidden in the back of me and my brother’s shared closet. What I did like to do, however, was science experiments. I would mix things together and pour them on the grass to see what would happen, or do basically anything that made a mess. One day, I had the ingenious idea to try and cook mac and cheese using the power of the sun on a ninety degree day. I dug a small, toy plastic spaghetti pot out of the back of my closet where it was sitting with various fake food items and cooking utensils. Somehow, I climbed onto the countertop and managed to reach the top shelf where the elbow noodles were located, and poured them into the pot along with sink water hot enough it hurt my hands a little. Then, I went outside and sat down on the rough wooden porch with the pot in my hands, waiting for the noodles to cook. After about fifteen minutes, my grandmother opened the door and saw me there. Of course, she had no clue what I was trying to do. She assumed that the little seven year old who could not cook was hungry and attempting
I was quite a rambunctious child, always getting myself into precarious situations; whether it was climbing trees, playing with matches, or running with scissors. My actions did not reflect my parenting; my parents tried to teach me to be careful, unfortunately it took an unpleasant, but humorous experience to teach me that lesson. I was three years old at the time and that day I decided to run through the house like a superhero. I pulled an Atlanta Braves hat over my head for some odd reason and proceeded to start my mission. As I ran into the kitchen I felt something grab the corner of my mouth and it completely stopped my momentum. It just so happens that a few minutes before my run, my mother opened the kitchen cabinet and forgot to close
1. During gym class, four students decided to see if they could beat the norm of 45 sit‐ups in a minute. The ﬁrst student did 64 sit‐ups, the second did 69, the third did 65, and the fourth did 67.
When my second grade teacher announced to leave for lunch, I grabbed my lunch kit and lined up with the rest of the class in alphabetical order. Since I went to a Catholic school, we always said a prayer before eating. After praying we headed out the door and took the seemingly endless walk from our classroom to the cafeteria. As we entered the cafeteria those who brought their own lunches sat at the class’ designated table and the other students waited in line for hot lunch. Once everyone sat at the table I unzipped my lunch kit, looked to see what my mom packed for that day, and pulled out my sandwich box. When I raised the sandwich to my mouth, I noticed my friends staring at me. A few asked “What kind of sandwich is that?” like they had never seen one before. “Uh, mayonnaise,” I replied. They thought nothing of it and focused on eating their food. But here’s the catch:
So the day was going great until my mom was done cooking something. Now you probably think my mom did something but she did not I did. I wanted to see how hot the stove was so It being me I touched it like a dummy. That is when a I realized I messed up big time. Then I was immediately rushed off to holy spirit hospital. Thankfully I did not get a scar or something worse.I did get some bandages around my whole right hand. My hand hurt so much that day. One lesson I definitely learned not to put my hand or any part of my body on the stove. This experience changed my life because it left a scar in my memory. This influences I will have in my future will be to be more careful. Someone may learn from reading about my experience is not to make the
Inari and I share one thing in common and that's setting things on fire by accident. I once had an easy bake oven and I wanted to make a cake, but I didn't want to wait that long for it to heat up. Instead, I used this little container from the same brand that made the tiny cakes in the microwave. Once my batter was ready to cook, I placed it in the oven for ten minutes just like the directions had specified. When I came back, smoke was escaping the microwave and a bright light was being emitted. The good thing was that it was next to the sink, so I managed to splash the microwave with water before the fire engulfed my home. All Inari wanted was a pop tart, but just like me, she put too much time. The toaster got a bit too toasty and it sprung into flames. She thankfully didn't throw water at it, but instead disconnected it which made the flames
Enzymes, such as amylase, allow the chemical reactions that take place inside the body of a plant, animal, or human. Some enzymes are dedicated to maintaining the immune system where it protects a person against diseases around them such as tobacco smoke. Enzyme is in the diet and contains enzymes in foods that we have digested and are already in the body. “The digestive glands secrete juices containing enzymes that break down nutrients chemically into smaller molecules that are more easily absorbed by the body” (“Enzymes” Science of Everyday Thing). When amylase enters saliva, the procedure of breaking down carbohydrates into sugars begins to occur. Then the stomach will start to produce pepsin, which helps digest proteins while food is in
My mother was a housewife therefore, she cared for me daily. I was a clingy baby requiring a lot of attention when I was an infant. I enjoyed eating and I forced my parents to feed me frequently. However, when I learned to crawl and walk, which was earlier than expected, I set out to independently explore every aspect of my living environment. Unfortunately, my need to explore led me into areas forbidden territory. When I was 6 years old I wandered into the kitchen while nobody was looking. Consequently, I pulled a pot off the stove that was full of hot water. I was rushed the hospital, amazingly I didn’t suffer any burns or scars, but I do remember the pain to this day.
It was 2007 kindergarten year, My mother and I decided the day before school started we would go get some back to school clothes and I picked out these super nice 30 dollar grey pants pretty expensive for school clothes when you're only four years old the next day I decided to wear those super nice grey pants. I came too scool rocking those jean like ants and school was awesome we were finding out how to get to the library and them gym and getting cubbies and then I suddenly had to go to the bathroom it was bad I had to go bad and I asked my teacher but we were in the middle of getting cubbies and she said no so I waited and i asked again and she said know I kept on asking and asking until about an hour later a couple of hours later she finally
Since I was a young girl, learning was something necessary to do in order to mature into my own self. It's something us as humans do to evolve from our younger selves. From learning to talk, walk ,and read we learn many things throughout our lifetime to be the person we are today. Learning is the key to life. Learning makes us progress. Riding a bicycle was a learning experience that I might never forget it.
One day in April of 2009,my mom,dad, sister and me went to the movies. At the movies we went to see the new ¨Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.¨ When we bought the tickets we went and got some popcorn and soda.When we got inside the theater it was chilly. Luckily for me it wasn't because I had on a leather jacket.Meanwhile my sister and my dad went to the bathroom while my mom was watching me. I was doing front flips on a designated wheelchair area type of thing and she was telling me to stop.
At six years of age, in the first grade, I was very underweight, very sickly, very absent from school, and my parents were very concerned. I would always ask my first grade teacher to go to the nurse because my stomach always hurt, but after a while she understandably began to question if I really needed to
American society values higher education. College provides many opportunities for developing a variety of social networks, both formal and informal. Obtaining a college degree will be such a valuable and
For my Geology experience, I went to a museum, since I ventured out on both field trips. The hardest part for me, was the most common stressor-- when I am forced to venture out somewhere. Getting there and getting back. Travel is a very stress inducing thing. It is expensive to take cabs, and there is no real, propper bus service around Freeport, Il. Not to mention my parents are usually busy, to come all the way to Freeport from Polo.
