Tommy Read came in today and he was mad. He wanted to but a pack of air-o-cells, but his card did not go through. I called Kathleen Squares, and tried to get her to run the card, but it did not go through again. I managed to get another card from him, and he was finally able to pay for his order. Obviously, he was very irritated when he left the lab. He said that he would call Sheryl (his sales rep) because of what happened today. I let him know that it was fine to do that. Thirty minutes later Sheryl calls saying that Tommy was complaining about us. I clarified the situation, and she said that from now on he would call her, and she would process his air-o-cell orders. She will then send us an email to let us know that he is picking
I never expected anyone to be this heartbroken over my death. Here I was 15 year old boy named Andy Hollows. My death was tragic, Leukemia is never easy to deal with. I was currently watching my mom wrap Christmas presents for my younger sibling. This is their first Christmas without me and I wasn’t too happy with my dad acting like a Grinch this time of the year in this exact situation. Lord knows my mom did not need it, nobody did in fact they were depressed, heartbroken, lost, and dull. I was always the one to cheer them up when they were sad, help Mom decorate for christmas, and help my younger sister, Ann pick out a ugly Christmas sweater to wear. I was interrupted out of my dark and useless thoughts by the door bell ringing.
My father passed away in 1991, two weeks before Christmas. I was 25 at the time but until then I had not grown up. I was still an ignorant youth that only cared about finding the next party. My role model was now gone, forcing me to reevaluate the direction my life was heading. I needed to reexamine some of the lessons he taught me through the years.
Sometimes when you go through hardships you feel that you are alone and there is nobody there for you. Recently this past year I lost my grandfather I didn't really understand why it had to happen the way it did it was just a lot for me. When it all happened I just kind of boxed myself in this little corner. I didn't want to do anything I just wanted to be to myself. This really started to affect me in every way I just honestly went into a depression. Loss and Grief can be really depressing for a lot of people especially when it’s someone that you are very close to. I and my grandfather were very close he was somebody that I would see almost every day. For him to be gone where I can no longer be with him was very hard for me. It took me awhile
The death of me begins at six o’clock in the morning; as I reach to violently smack the snooze button, my mom comes in urging me to get up, get dressed, and rush out the door to make the bus for early bird chemistry. I run three blocks to catch my only mode of transportation to and from school while eating my breakfast and contemplating whether I did all of my homework, remembered all of my supplies, and have everything I need for swimming. Once the bus comes to a screeching halt at New Trier Township High School, the foreboding fear encroaches. I dread every moment walking the two blocks to school down the leafy Winnetka Avenues anticipating the anxiety in my ten period course load. After going through the motions of all ten
Life is a very difficult experience. Yes, you can try and make it easy but overall it does not come easy at all. You have to work towards anything you want and put yourself out there to become apart of the experience it provides.
I won't be disappointed anymore. The utter bitterness taste of a loss. Set me back centuries from mental state, but by repeating the same mistakes at the same tournament. It was my sophomore year i was on the wrestling team. the heat immense in my warm up gear as i drilled moves with my partner deeandre. It was the biggest tournament in my eyes. It was junior varsity conference tournament held at new trier high school a school we despised for reasons I didn't even know. But that didn't matter at the time it was time for me to win this baby, win the whole thing, bring a trophy home,a medal, something I told myself. It was held in a gym 3 mats, three score tables and referees. each table would go by a weight class and call your name. this was
The one thing we must constantly remind ourselves is that death is not the end of our life. We cannot and we will not forfeit what beautiful and precious time we have left wallowing in the darkness of a life ending. I know that the pain is real and I know that sometimes the everything is just too loud and enormous and overwhelming. But we must carry on and we must endure and we must live without ever being held back.
As a native of Massachusetts, I never cared much about school. And with parents that didn’t care if I went to school either, I just didn’t take the time to go. I mean, why would I sit in school and listen to a teacher rambling on about some useless information. This got me into trouble at a young age. I started to pick up the profession of theft. This got me into prisons all over New England. As you can image, it wasn’t too good of a life growing up.
Today I was joined by John (the ox) Entwistle one day after he was pronounced dead in the arms of a Las Vegas stripper from a cocaine overdose 2 days before The Who’s states tour: The bassist of the millennium was in room 658 of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Nevada. The stripper/groupie of the band Alycen Rowse found John cold when she woke up. We talked to him and discussed how he was feeling about his death and hopefully find out the story behind it.
We are at the Philbrook Museum with the class and of course it’s boring. My best friend Tommy and I are just walking around, waiting for something exciting to happen. Since we were raised by wolves and we’re alphas of the family we leave the pack. We go downstairs and there’s a sign that says “DANGER ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK.” Us being who we are, we enter because we don’t even listen to our parents. As we’re walking in the cold, dim room there’s sarcophagus’ everywhere. I walk over to one of the sarcophagus and as I begin to open it, all of a sudden the electricity shut off. I got scared and jumped back so fast. I yell Tommy’s name as I’m running blindly to the exit. I was running faster than Forrest Gump but Tommy somehow caught up to me. We’re
After my mom died from a car accident our family decided to just put everyone's name on one headstone after they died. First it was my moms, then my grandmas, then my aunt and uncle and we decided to put my dads on their as well cause after mom died he left. It seemed like there wasn’t going to be any room left by the time me and my brother died. Hopefully it isn't soon.
If I was Tom, the school that I would list as my top choice for now would be the Ohio State University. This university is cheaper and because of the mortgages and other things that his parents need to cover, he would obtain aid, which would decrease the amount of money that the has to pay. Comparing OSU to Xavier University, even though in Xavier, he would get more money, it’s still more expensive and at the end, OSU would end up being cheaper. What I would like to know more about the schools is what careers they have, the awards and successes of both of them and to know more in depth about Tom is looking for as a career. Knowing this information will make me more confident about what school to choose because I will be more informed and know
Since ancient times, people always believe that dead family member will protect their descendants.Although we can’t see them or touch them, they always protect us or cheer us up.Once they rest assured or finished their jobs, they will disappear.
