On November 19th, 2016, My family and I were going to Western Michigan University. We were heading off to watch the football and hockey game, my father told me it would take a few hours. Hours went flying by it felt like we were in a race car, we finally arrived hours later. We went straight to the dining area, it smelled like fresh made pasta and many more thrilling smells. As we made our way through the crowd, we found a table to sit at. Afterwards when we found a seat, we went darting off in many directions to look at all the food stations. Few minutes passed by when we all swarm like bees back to the table. We all seated and started eating, we talked about what we got for food.
My tough decision was to choose only one sport to play to either baseball or play soccer. I was not that good at soccer, but I was better at baseball. The rest of my family played baseball or softball. My options were to to either stick with playing baseball or soccer. The consequence was to play soccer and not be as good as I was in baseball. The final process was to make a decision on what sport I should primary play. The decision I decided to play or stick with was baseball.
Put the gun down! Put the gun down! Pow Pow Pow. The gun shots cracked into the air as loud as thunder. One after another. We live day by day not knowing our end. In the blink of an eye our lives can be changed forever. Its life, yet even in knowing this we never expect tragedy to find us. We never expect it to affect our lives and the people we know and love. I’m going to share with you the day tragedy found my life.
Decisions are important and hard to make. People maybe decide quickly without thinking about the consequences but on the other half, they will think about it back and forth then they will reply. Christopher makes his point that people rely on their intuition so much, but I’m kindly disagree with him because it usually based on the ages. As people get older, they become more aware of they’re doing. Intuition usually evolves in easy decision, without any reasons they just decide as quickly as possible to get out of that problem. I can’t say which one people rely on more because they are different and they solve the problem with their way. Did I used mostly logic or intuition to make the decision? My answer is I used mostly logic to decide something. I feel like to have the comfortable feeling, I should think back and forth, then use reasons so I don’t have to hold any consequences later. The way I solve the problem should comfortable others too because I don’t want anyone get in trouble. One time, I had to decide the money I have left, should I buy my favorite shoes or birthday gift for my friend then I decided to buy birthday gift because shoes I can buy at anytime but my friend’s birthday happens only once a year; so I want to put my selfish aside and make everyone is happy. Your own selfish will make you move to the intuition side,
At a young age, I moved from the country I was born in (Dominican Republic) to Miami Florida. Moving is not an easy thing to do, I had to leave all of my friends and family behind and become familiarized with uncertain place. I was surrounded by the unknown, everything was strange and so different to what I was usually use to. At the time I could not speak any English at all but that eventually did not matter to me, I slowly started adapting to my new environment and I became more positive. Although I could not communicate well and had a few obstacles I was very organized with my studies and kept very decent grades.
My initial perceptions about the students of St. Angela were very stereotypical. Honestly, I expected those students to come from single parent backgrounds and come from a low income household. I expected to deal with students who live life in a survival type of manner. What I mean by survival type of manner is for one to be on defense seeing the type of the children are from the Austin area. Walking in to St. Angela I expected to deal with kids that didn’t listen and know respect for authority. I expected this due to my upbringing in the same neighborhood.
Do you have a personal bias? When I was first told that I had had to write an essay about my personal essay, I didn’t believe I had a bias. Once I looked at what a bias was and a few examples, I figured out I did have a bias. Everyone in this world has a bias against a certain group of people or an idea. Wheather it is against an ethnic group, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
When deciding what to write this paragraph on I had to choose a topic that I know a lot bout, and feel strongly for. I decided that I would write on how I met my boyfriend Conor, because it’s a very complicated story. It was early January when I first met Conor, but I didn’t know anything about him, but a few weeks later I found myself hanging out with a few friends and this kid who was always around. We all decided we liked having each other around, so we kept hanging out for a few more days… by this time it was the end of March and Easter break was coming up fast. I was flying out to San Diego, April 2nd, there was supposed to be an ice storm the day of my flight so I left two days early. When I was packing I thought why not snap chat my
My undergraduate education and experience got me further interested in public health as it allowed to learn more about these issues and questions I had which motivated me to keep going and to keep learning as the more I learned the more questions I had. As a result of this I took various classes that focused on the social view of health and the social issues that affect health along with classes focusing on culture. This was primarily because of the personal experiences I had growing up, but also because of the fact that I learned i want alone in these experiences. Many of the classes I took allowed me to begin seeing health and these experiences through a social lens as well as learning why culture is so relevant in issues like this. I also
Hey, I know it probably won't make sense at this point but I'm sorry for what I said. It wasn't fair of me to take stabs at you like that when you didn't really do anything to me. I guess I was just frustrated and disappointed at the time because you didn't really wish to give any kind of solid advice to me other than what was just common sense in terms of what you did. I understand where you are coming from though, you have something good going for you, why potentially ruin it for yourself, even though you stated that that's not possible. You did however inspire me to do this myself and I have sent in my first few shipments recently which are filled with items that I bought for a really low price and are sold high on Amazon with a high sales
Inside, my mind is racing as I stand there motionless. The last few weeks have been spent preparing for this special moment in time. “How will I do, will they be staring at me, are they laughing at me?”. All these thoughts have completely overwhelmed my mind. In a matter of moments, I recognize that my heart is on the verge of exploding. “Why did I ever decide to go through with this, I am not the type of person to put myself in this type of a situation. I should run away now before it gets worse ”. It will be starting any second now, the panic has taken over and I stand there waiting for the embarrassment to begin. The ball is hit straight towards me and I swing, hence striking it back over the net. Although mostly a reaction, my partner
"Mason, let's go before they catch us !" Liam shouted . Mason replied in a shouted distinct voice " Stop yelling they are gonna hear us. Liam I'm telling you we will be safe here stop taking a chance let's just wait it out man ." "I'll catch you boys don't worry !" While hiding in a student lockers, they were communicating through the inside wall. One had a math test for this week and one had the English test for next week. Liam and Mason were trouble makers and always down to do dirty stuff which no one were expecting.
Yes, I do agree with Christopher that people rely on their intuition way more than logical thinking. It’s not done purposely, it is more of an instinct to go with your own notion first then to think logically about that choice at that exact moment. We’ve all heard the saying “Follow Your Heart” and it’s not literally meaning let your heart guide you through life, but for your to always go with how you really feel regardless of what anyone or anything has told you in the process. I’ve had plenty of moments when I chose to go with my gut feelings before even thinking the logical way. In some cases it turned out good for me and very few had me wishing I thought about it before diving in head first.
