The concepts throughout this book are simple but they test self-control and patience, which in our world is uncommon because of the “want it now” attitude. Ramsey talks about how “personal finance is 80 percent behavior and only 20 percent head knowledge” (ix). This main idea is something Ramsey talks about and references throughout the whole book. Another main idea or as Ramsey calls it a “motto” that’s on each page at the bottom is “If you live like no one else, later you can live like no one else” (5). This is the theme that he refers back to on
Although knowing how to manage money, budget, and finance does not guarantee life will be a piece of cake, failing to understand can come with consequences. Many students are going into college and starting careers without knowing how to properly manage their finances, save money, or invest. In her article, Yes: Ignorance Carries a High Price, Annamaria Lusardi uses driving as an example. Lusardi mentions how there are many precautions taken in
First I just want to point out the obvious and say that you have an enormous heart. It must be so hard for you meeting these inmates and seeing their potential and most times seeing them revert to their old ways. I think that has to be the most painful part of it all. I know your supervisor once told you “our mission can’t be affected by individual successes or failures.”- Alice Layton. Which is what kept you going. It’s true, but it doesn’t take the sad disappointing feelings away. It’s amazing what you do, but it’s also very hard emotionally. For that I salute you. I love how invested you truly are. That fact that they feel comfortable enough to speak to you about the crimes they have committed is insane. That just goes to show how committed you are to helping them better themselves. In addition to

I am a self-proclaimed PRMS writer. What is PRMS? It is something I made up, it stands for Procrastinated, Rushing, Multitasking, and Sloppiness. For as far back as I can remember, I have always procrastinated, rushed, and multitasked in just about every aspect of my life. My writing skills have always been a hit or miss. If I have enough time to review, compare, make changes, have someone else review, and then I make more changes, my ending results are good. If I do not have time for the previous steps, then most of the time my results as a writer are sloppy. My proudest moment as a writer came when my children were accepted to one of the most prestigious schools in my area. I was required to write an essay on why they should be accepted to
Cooperative Extension works to offer diverse educational programs in agriculture, community development, food and nutrition, youth development, and natural resources (Franz & Townson, 2008). It consists of being a part of every state’s land grant universities, the United States Department of Agriculture, and local county governments. Part of the reason it got its name is because it is an extension of the land-grant universities. It is currently the largest adult education organization in the United States.
Throughout high school, I continuously explored a wide variety of courses in an attempt to figure out what career path I may want to pursue. As senior year drew closer, the business field became more enticing. Furthermore, my aspirations were significantly impacted on the evening of September 14, 2016. I woke up that day and left for school as if it were any other day. After school, I drove to the softball field because we had a game and it just so happened to be Senior Night: the last home game. When it came time for my first at bat, I stepped up to the plate and hit a line drive between the first and second basemen, successfully making it to first base. The next player up to bat hit a double; I rounded second and sprinted for third. I clearly remember my coach kneeling on the ground to signal me to slide into third base. For some unknown reason, I hesitated and slid too late. I knew it was a bad slide, but I was focusing on whether or not I was safe. Then reality set in, I was safe, but I was not physically capable of standing up.
I’ve always asked myself,” what does it really take to make it big? To play amongst the greats, how could I do that? Me, Skylar Ross, a young man with this desire, the passion, wanting to play side by side with legends, to become someone people talk about, is what has pushed me all these years. It drove me to become a better player, to become more informed about the sport. This also influenced me to become more intertwined with school, that way I could have a better chance at getting a scholarship at a college.
I interviewed a woman that works with my mother and have known for several years now. She had been summoned and questioned by attorneys six times. She was only selected three of the six times to serve on the jury. Her first thought was “oh crap.” Although it may not be seen as a very nice response, but it is a very natural human response and she is not the only one who has reacted in that way. She was very nervous receiving the summons; it was something new and practically unknown to her. Some of the questions she was asked were if she owns a gun, if she has a gun in the house, about her education, and mostly just general questions. There is one question that stood out from the others though. Once when being asked by an attorney, she
I never this project would have such a big impact on me and my co-wworkers. I also did not realize how one project can bring a community more closer than anyone in the community could imagine.
My field experience was in Ms. Felkins third grade classroom at Washington Elementary School. The class there are nineteen students total, nine boys and ten girls. There are two different ethnic groups in the class, four African American students and fifteen white students. Additionally, there are three students who go to a resource room throughout the day for academic instruction. One of the students goes to the resource room for thirty-minute increments throughout the day. Three students go to a small reading group each day to work on reading skills.

For seven years, while I was going to school to obtain my Master’s Degree in Psychology, I was a personal assistant for friends, family, mentors, and their referrals. I have always enjoyed helping people in any aspect, whether it was organizing their home or office or listening to people’s wants or problems. I have found that compassion, empathy, mixed with the appropriate humor is one of the best forms of psychological remedies (Davies, 2013). While working as a personal assistant, I was referred to help organize a well-known psychologist firm in the area. Since I completed the paper filing assignment ahead of the end date, they found additional duties, such as maintaining their data and filing system on their computer system and moved one
On Tuesday 18th, 2017 I interviewed Elizabeth Surprenant the systems Administrator for B. F. Saul Company & Affiliates (Real State Company). Before I decided to interview her, I first targeted the type of occupation that I want to know more information. Economics my targeted major. Due to my interest in economics, I decided to interview Ms. Surprenant, who has a bachelor degree in Accounting and she doubled major in economics. There were 2 degrees of separation between this Ms. Surprenant and me. I contacted her via email and set up a meeting to discuss some details about her occupation.
This day was busy, but I was able to help out more by checking patients in and checking them out this time around. Felt a lot more comfortable with the system and interacting with the clients and their pets. This was my last day working in the front, I enjoyed working with Leonore and the rest of the staff in the front but, I am very excited to work in the back to get hands on experience working with the technician’s and the doctor’s.
