April 23, 2013 My Dream Career
My dream career is definitely anything involving the arts. If I have to specify I would definitely have to say doing animation. Since I was a young child I've been captivated by all the Disney movies and cartoons that were on TV. Watching a cartoon if so much different from watching a normal television show with actual people. I've always loved the way that a cartoon can bring a smile to not only a child's face but an adult's face as well. It's been amazing to watch the way Disney has progressed with its animation department from the time I was an a child to be becoming an adult.
I've always had a talent for drawing. Over the years I've won numerous awards and I just knew it was something that I wanted or at least envisioned myself doing for the rest of my life. When I was younger my mom enrolled my in an animation class at the Cleveland Institute of art. I was captivated. Every day I would come to class and sketch out another scene picture, which would be compiled with my other drawings and the end of the course and made into a short film. Although the video was only about two minutes long, it was amazing how my drawings came to life. We were even able to add a voice over.
Watching my animation and seeing my classmate’s reaction was when I knew that this actually was what, I've been destined to do. During my senior year of high school I contemplated whether or not I wanted to go to art school or attend a regular four year university. I ended up choosing to go to a normal college because of the costs and not being sure if animation was going to work out in the long run. Although, I still draw every day to perfect my craft and this summer I intend on trying to get an internship with Disney World in their animation department.
Technology definitely has a huge…...

...Dreams can be both fascinating and baffling, which is why they have garnered attention from philosophers, artists, writers and poets for thousands of years. Only fairly recently in history have researchers began to scientifically study the dreaming process. While people still disagree about the exact purpose of dreams and the possible interpretations of dream content, this area remains a topic of interest for both psychologists, researchers, students and anyone who wonders about the reasons behind their dreams. Dream Meanings and Interpretation: Do you often find yourself exactly why you dreamed what you did, especially after having particularly strange dreams? Despite the research and interest in dreaming, no one yet fully understands how to interpret dream meanings. Sigmund Freud’s theory of dreams contributed a great deal to the general interest in dream interpretation. Books and dream dictionaries have helped ensure that the topic remains popular today. Dreams can be mysterious, but understanding the meaning of our dreams can be downright baffling. The content of our dreams can shift suddenly, feature bizarre elements or frighten us with terrifying imagery. The fact that dreams can be so rich and compelling is what causes many to believe that there must be some meaning to our dreams. Theories about Dreams: While many theories exist to explain why we dream, no one yet fully understands their purpose, let alone how to interpret the meaning of dreams. In fact, some......

...University and major in Biochemistry. If I am lucky enough, I hope to go to Duke Medical School. Once I have finished Medical School I would like to do my residency in neurosurgery. I plan to achieve this by taking as many science classes as I can in high school as I can, volunteering regularly at the hospital, and doing well on the SAT’s. It has always been my dream to grown up and become a physician. When I was little I would go with my dad to the hospital and wait in the physician’s lounge till his shift was over. As my dad would answer page’s or tell me about his patients, I though to myself, “I want to be just like Daddy when I grow up”. My sister and I like most other children would play doctor when we were little. We would always pretend that one of us had a brain tumor and pretended to remove it. To save people’s lives’ everyday, to find new advances in medicine, just knowing that because of you someone’s life has improved tenfold. I believe that is one of the most rewarding experiences you can ever have. I find the brain to be fascinating; it has so many unknown abilities. I believe that neurosurgery is the perfect career for me, it combines the mysteries of the brain with the preciseness of surgery....

The Dream

...The American Dream The phenomenon of the American Dream is the substance of almost all American icons, and actually achieving the American Dream is the ideal aspiration of not only Americans but immigrants as well. Some people would argue that the American Dream actually really consists only of being able to buy and own a home, but to me it is so much more! The American Dream named, because it seemingly exists only here in America, for very ambitious people to be a distinguished success through their own hard work and determination. People constantly try to achieve their own dreams. Some people, already here in America, chase their dream by wanting to be a bigger success than their parents. The others who have immigrated to this country chase their very own dream, by giving up all they had just to come and have the opportunity to succeed.  The American Dream is something that is mainly achieved with hard work and determination. First of all, you cannot have a dream without working hard at it; this definitely applies to the American Dream. Whether you are just looking for a job or working a job hard work is something that you need, without it achieving your dream becomes a lot more difficult. Hard work will also lead to more promotions and more successes a lot quicker; these tend to be apart of the average American Dream. The other big reason hard work is needed is if you do not exude a hard working attitude a lot of opportunities will pass you by. With missed......

...Through doing the research about dreams I have learned a vast about of important information from how to write an annotated bibliography, how to use VCU’s library system online, how to critically dissect as well as review my paper and the most important what different people believe a dream means to them. Once again my knowledge of VCU’s online library research system came in handy. Because I knew the correct ways to search of information through this data base it helped eliminate unneeded information. The writing workshops gave me and in depth look and how to read a paper from the readers point of view versus just the writer’s voice. It also gave me a chance to see how other people would create such a paper and gave me tips on where I was lacking strength. Having someone else read and criticized your work humbles you as well as gives you room to grow as a writer. Along with the workshop having you look over my paper and giving me your feedback helped be discover ways I could elaborate and fix my claim. Since this is the second time I have written and read research on the topic of dreams I feel like I have a stronger understanding of how beneficial dreams are to your lives. If I have dream that frightens me I know have a idea of where it came from and how it relates to my day to day life because I have read so many different views and opinions on dream analysis. Learning about the different ways people view the ‘meaning’ of a dream really gives me a new......

...knowing that, I knew that the health industry would be a great field, not because I would love being a nurse, but because I knew I would have a stable career. After completing my general studies, I was ready for nursing school, but in the process of enrollment I quickly found out there was a two-year waiting list. I automatically felt discouraged and stuck. I didn’t know how to progress and more forward in that situation, so I decided to look for a job, until school was back in motion. While searching for employment, I visited the local one-stop center in our region and started applying for customer service jobs. Three months later I got a call from the One-Stop Career center in my area, asking me about a 3month paid internship at their office, and if I would be interested. Full of joy and excitement I quickly said yes! While working at the company, I met many unemployed individuals whom had recently lost their job, and where confused and unsure of how to get back into the workforce. I learned about employers and what they look for in hiring new staff, but also I learned the importance of finding a job you love. I learned that once you found a passion and desire for what you’re doing, you’d never feel as if you have to work another day in your life. So now after knowing that, I asked myself, can I honestly be happy and secure in a career as a nurse for the remaining of my life? The answer was simply No. So that led me to finding my passion, which brought me back to music.......

Dreams

...Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.[1] The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and religious interest, throughout recorded history. The scientific study of dreams is called oneirology.[2] Dreams mainly occur in the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep—when brain activity is high and resembles that of being awake. REM sleep is revealed by continuous movements of the eyes during sleep. At times, dreams may occur during other stages of sleep. However, these dreams tend to be much less vivid or memorable.[3] The length of a dream can vary; they may last for a few seconds, or approximately 20–30 minutes.[3] People are more likely to remember the dream if they are awakened during the REM phase. The average person has three to five dreams per night, but some may have up to seven dreams in one night.[4] The dreams tend to last longer as the night progresses. During a full eight-hour night sleep, most dreams occur in the typical two hours of REM.[5] In modern times, dreams have been seen as a connection to the unconscious mind. They range from normal and ordinary to overly surreal and bizarre. Dreams can have varying natures, such as frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. The events in dreams are generally outside the control of the...

Dream Career

...An Appropriate Choice Skulbrick Colorado Mesa University An Appropriate Choice For me, an appropriate career choice is that of a substance abuse counselor (SAC). Teaching people with substance abuse and dependence issues to help themselves would give me significant job satisfaction. I have always been interested in the behavior of intoxicated people, the biological mechanisms that result in lowered inhibitions, diminished reasoning, and a tendency toward violence. I seek to understand the biopsychosocial variables that combine to facilitate the consumption of mood altering substances (Wallace, 2012). Additionally, I would like to develop insight into the process of addiction and the evidence based methods of treatment. My observations of impaired individuals tend to convince me of biopsychosocial reasons for substance abuse and associated behaviors. Therefore, my dream is to gain the knowledge to address the underlying motivation for substance abuse and addiction. (Walters & Rotgers, 2012). Employment Outlook As Miller, Scarborough, Clark, Leonard, and Keziah (2010) reported, the credentialing requirements for SACs vary significantly between the states. ......

I am a 15 year old boy who basically follows the pattern eat-sleep-ball-study–repeat. I know that sounded crazy, well I guess that speaks a little bit about my personality. I am the first born out of two children. Many first borns possess traits such as organization, intelligence, ambition, imagination, confidence, and most importantly responsibility. However I don’t possess most of these traits. Maybe that gives a little foreshadowing to my self-esteem, which I’ll admit isn’t quite at the top of the pack. However with the knowledge I’ve gained throughout the course I hope to change these qualities, along with other qualities that are preventing from going deep within me, and discovering more things about me.

...Salman Good Afternoon Everybody........ Hope you all are doing fine. This is my first speech in front of such a big audience and i shall try to make it interesting. I believe that if we have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give our best effort, we will overcome our immediate problems and find we are ready for greater challenges. Here is the story of my life’s journey so far. I am Salman and I was born in the year 2000 in Hyderabad, India. I came to Doha when I was 6 months old. My story would be incomplete without the story of my parents – because they are the reason, I am standing before you today. My father is an Engineer and my mother is a post graduate house wife who did not wish to pursue a career so that she can take care of my elder brother and me. I have an elder brother who is in class 12th who loves me a lot but we do fight and argue since I do not like to take things lying down. I do not remember much of my childhood but my mother tells me that I was a chubby little kid, quite and always ready to eat whatever was in my plate. I vaguely remember my early years in school which flew away very playfully. The studies too went on like a breeze without any sort of pressure. As soon as I returned from school I used to finish my homework without anybody telling me. But as I grew older this is not the case, my parents have to be on my back. Talking about studies, Urdu was my weakest subject and no wonder it was the lowest scoring subject in all......

Dream

...Dreams are very different from waking life, but it is extremely difficult clearly to define in what the difference consists. When we are dreaming, we are nearly always convinced that we are awake, and in some cases real experiences have been mistaken for dreams. The latter mistake forms the subject of a celebrated Spanish play called Life a Dream, and of an amusing story in the Arabian Nights, in which a poor man is for a jest treated as a mighty monarch, and it is contrived that he should afterwards think that all the honourable treatment he had actually received was merely a vivid dream. Sometimes even after waking, we may be doubtful whether our dream was a reality or not, especially if we happen to fall asleep in our chair and do not remember the circumstance of having fallen to sleep. Of course this doubt can only arise when there has been nothing in our dream that seems impossible to our wakened mind. It is, however, only in rare cases that a dream exactly copies the experience of our waking hours. As a rule, in our sleep all kinds of events seem to happen which in our waking hours we should know to be impossible. In our dreams we see and converse with friends who are at the other side of the world or have been long dead. We may even meet historical or fictitious characters that we have read about in books. We often lose our identity and dreams that we are someone else, and in the course of a single dream may be in turn several different persons. Space and time to the......

The Dream

...Washington 1 Jalyn Washington English 101 Professor Macy 12 April 2015 The Dream ​The American Dream has many definitions. There are many different answers to describe Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller. The American Dream in the late 1940s was to have the “perfect American household”(The American Dream). This was to have a house in the suburbs, a steady job, being married, having a few kids, and keeping up with the Jones’. Death of a Salesman is a harsh criticism of the American Dream. The American Dream in Miller’s play is depicted as the ability to become prosperous by being well liked, the ability to start from nothing to something, and pursuing others dream. It also depends on which character is asked: Willy Loman, Ben, and Biff’s American Dream. ​Willy Loman’s American Dream is the ability to become prosperous by popularity. Willy believes that personality, not hard work and innovation, is the key to success. Time and again, he wants to make sure his boys are well-liked and popular. For example, when his son Biff confesses to making fun of his math teacher’s lisp, Willy is more concerned with how Biff’s classmates react. Biff says he crossed his eyes and talked with a lisp (Miller 1770). Willy giggles and asked him did the kids like it and Biff responds with “They nearly died laughing!”(Miller). They all make fun of Bernard at the beginning of the movie. Willy marks Mr. Bernard for getting his stuff together and says “Oh well he won’t ever amount to anything...
