This week I have to finish my rough draft that I had wrote in week two and turn it in to a final essay. In week two I wrote a rough draft about a particular moment that had a special moaning on my life. A special meaning on my life has been becoming a mother. I was young when I had become a mother for the first time, but even thaw I was young I would not chance it for the world. I was eighteen years old when I become a mother to a healthy, smart and beautiful little girl, her name is Hayley Danielle. Once I had my daughter Hayley she had made me realize that becoming a mother at the age of eighteen was not so bad. Eighteen months later I gave birth to a smart, healthy and handsome baby named Austin Wayne. Having two children by the time I was almost twenty years old, made me realize that they need to grow up and have morals and know that respect, education and that family is everything. When I was twenty-four years old I gave birth to another smart, healthy and beautiful little girl named Kaylan Faith. All three of my children are my world. I teach them all three to not be mean to one another, to respect their elders and to pay attention in school. I tell my children that I want them to grow up and have a great education. I have explained to my children and I will always explain to my children that having a great education will help them be able to take care of them self’s and be able to support their own families when they grow up and have a family. All three of my children are blessings sent from above and I love being their mother. Becoming a mother at a young age has let me enjoy growing up with them and has made me grow up faster than most young people do. My children enjoy playing games with each other and I and they know that I will never turn my back on them. My children are my everything, I have said if I had to do it again I hope that I would still…...

Life Defining Moments

...Life Defining Moments My friend & I were in the car, on our way to Glorietta 4 to catch movie with the rest of the group. She then asked me if some life-defining moments ever occurred. I wasn’t sure what she was talking about & I didn’t have a quick answer for that. I remember her telling me that one of her life defining moments was looking at a framed picture by her bedside, a picture of her and her gorgeous boyfriend, her arms around his neck, in a candid pose. Or something like that. I remember laughing, sine I could have thought of that too. She then explained that a life-defining moment was something you’d like to happen in the future no matter how far-off or crazy it might be. It was like a goal of some sort, but it’s just something conjured up to tickle the imagination. We didn’t dwell on that for long, for the conversation reverted to Harry Potter’s new adventures and the movie that were about to watch that afternoon. I totally forgot it, until a kabarkada now based in Seattle shared her own life-defining moment through e-groups, after that friend of mine (whom I watched the movie with) shared a brand-new one. They were all seeing themselves as successful IT Professionals in power suits rushing from their pad to their office in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. They were either carrying Loius Vitton bags or their slim Compaq notebooks, while talking with a client on their top-of-the-line mobile phones and the, most expensive Armani shades protecting their...

When my mom went to work I had to be a mom when she was not there at times. I had to put away my teenage ways and become a parent. It was very hard at times because my sister's and brother had respect for me instead of our mom. I got devastated at times, but I pulled it together. I had no life because I was being a parent to my siblings. In high school I was a very troubled teenager who did not have a sense of direction. My grades were not good the first 3 years of school; it was up and down from there; but I always got through it somehow. My last year of school I pulled it together and made honor roll the whole entire year. At the end of the year I received a reward for my accomplishment. At that moment I felt very important that year. After High school I enrolled in college as a criminal justice major, everything came back to me and I fell in the same situation that I was in when I was back home. When I left home to go to college that was the first time I felt like I was on my own, I did not have to be a parent anymore, and I was only responsible for myself. The two years that I had attended I was not ready for college. My focus was having a life because it was taken from me as a child. I enjoyed being a free with no curfew . The school suspended for six months, I never went back to school. At that very moment that was the best thing......

One Significant Moments of My Life

...2013 One Significant Moment in My life America has been always my greatest adventure and my greatest fear. Like others international students, I was very nervous about the culture, the people, and the country itself because I have never traveled to a foreign country before. How people are going to take me? Will I be ignored by people because I am from different cultures? Will I be able to make friends? Will I be able to adjust to that new life? The question that was stuck in my mind, but I didn’t have any definitive answers. This all started when I was only sixteen years old. I have been hearing that there are many events in life, which can change their life in a way that they have never expected before. I have never trusted those words until now. As for me, I think the major event that changed my life is when I moved from Bangladesh to America for better education. On a Sunday morning, I was playing outside with my cousin. Suddenly, my father calls me inside, gives me a bunch of papers and offers me to go study abroad for my higher education. Studying aboard was my childhood dream; however, before that, my parents never wanted me to leave my country. My mom is the one who always stop my father for giving me permission to study abroad. After all that , when my father finally decided to let me study abroad in the United States of America, I was very excited and I agreed right away.

...share a place deep in my heart.” Every moment, when I recall them in my mind, they appear to be fresh. I cannot make myself believe that I already passed those times and will never be in the same time again. A chill runs down my spine awaking all my senses till date when I remember them. I especially remember the time when I was able to make my whole family proud of me. That was the time when I saw my own future as I had wished that to be.

My Most Embarrising Moment

...My Most Embarrassing Moment ITT-Technical Institute My Most Embarrassing Moment What is an embarrassing moment? I would have to say, it is when things go not as planned. My most embarrassing moment happened February 1983. I was a junior at W.P. Davidson High School. I was a member of the N.J.R.O.T.C. unit there. My unit was participating in the Senior Bowl halftime show. We were responsible for bringing out a balloon of Popeye. We were to march out on the field carrying Popeye. Popeye was to be laid down at the fifty yard line. We were to raise him up on cue. We were instructed to then march off the field with him. All of this was to be done in a fully packed stadium. We marched out on the field without incident. The wind was a little strong, but not bad. We laid Popeye down on cue. My best friend decided to curl his line on the ground next to his feet. On cue we began to raise Popeye. My friend’s foot got caught in the rope. My friend rose in the air with Popeye. I tried to unravel him from the rope. I finally got hit loose. Everyone in the stadium started to laugh. The game was televised on national television. We were also seen on local television. My family and friends all watched the game and, of course, the halftime show. I have never experienced anything like that. Now I look back, and I laugh....

Moment in My Life

...constitution? The right to privacy refers to the concept that one's personal information is protected from public scrutiny. U.S. Justice Louis Brandeis called it "the right to be left alone." While not explicitly stated in the U.S. Constitution, some amendments provide some protections. The right to privacy most often is protected by statutory law. For example, the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) protects a person's health information, and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforces the right to privacy in various privacy policies and privacy statements. The right to privacy often must be balanced against the state's compelling interests, including the promotion of public safety and improving the quality of life. Seat-belt laws and motorcycle helmet requirements are examples of such laws. And while many Americans are quite aware that the government collects personal information, most say that government surveillance is acceptable. Constitutional rights 4. How has court doctrine and republic opinion on gay rights changed over the last decade or so? The right to an abortion and to same sex unions is based on a right to privacy that the court has found in the constitution. A few limitations on abortion rights have been permitted....

My Dumb Moments

...alcoholism, which contribute to it as a medical disease. True, alcoholism has many ramifications for society as well as the economy, but the focus of this paper shall be, for the most part, on the medical aspects. In the way of background, alcoholism refers to the drinking of alcoholic beverages to such a degree that major aspects of the individual’s life -such as work, school, family relationships or personal SAFETY AND HEALTH, above all, are seriously and repeatedly interfered with. Alcoholism is considered a disease, meaning that it follows a characteristic course with known physical, psychological, and social systems. The alcoholic continues to consume alcohol despite the destructive consequences. Alcoholism is serious, progressive, and irreversible.          If not treated, it can be fatal. It is generally thought that once the disease has developed, the alcoholic will not drink normally again. An alcoholic who abstains from drinking, however, can regain control over the aspects of life with which ALCOHOL interfered. The alcoholic is then said to be “recovering” not “cured” of the disease. It is important to note that the particular symptoms and pattern of DRINKING PROBLEMS may vary with the individual. ALCOHOLISM is, therefore, a very complex disorder, and it is this very complexity which has led some recent researchers to question the accuracy of the disease concept of alcoholism. A person does not have to drink every day to be an alcoholic. Moreover, someone who......

My Life

...Trap Waking up in a mental asylum isn’t something you plan for, or even think about, but here I am. I entered Hellingly voluntarily. My doctor, Dr. Lepak, had been telling me to come here for a couple of years before I actually did come here. I think it was the constant crying and self harm, among other things. I came to Hell, as I like to call it now; on March the sixth 1972 and I’ve wanted to leave ever since. I have been an inmate here for seven years, two months, and thirteen days. Hellingly is like a rat trap. It’s easy to get in, but once in, impossible to get out. I came to Hellingly diagnosed with manic depression; this meant that I could hardly sleep. I just lay there thinking, torturing myself, about all the things I have done wrong in my life. This caused me to have episodes. It was like the devil himself took over my body, which caused aggressive behaviour towards inmates and nurses. The thing is, I was never aware of the changes in my behaviour. However, after an episode is over, I am always shocked at what I have done. When I first came, I had a special episode, which made me take a chunk out of a nurse’s forearm. As it was my first, they didn’t know how bad I would be and as they watched I charged for her apparently. This was all told by my neighbour, who thought it was brilliant, the next day. My neighbour, Rudy Thill, is my first and only friend here in Hell. I couldn’t really handle more than one friend. I’m not very good with people, and neither is......

Of Life Altering Moments

...The glare of my cell phone lit up the dark car. I grinned to myself as I saw a particularly funny meme. We had made a stop on our way back from dinner at Nani Ama’s. It was Eid, probably the most awaited event of the year, bound to be vibrant with promises of eidee, dinners, uplifted by unadulterated joy. Then something happened, marring Eid of the year 2015. It changed my life, that mere knock on my father’s window. “Phone dou, warna mein nai goli mar deni hai.” My blood ran cold. I froze, halting my ministrations, his nasally voice ringing in my ears, as he promised blood, if my father didn’t obey. Forcing myself to look up, I saw a sight I’ll never forget. Ever. The glow of my father’s Blackberry, the frozen picture of him and my sister beaming set as the background, finding its way out the window, towards the pair of hands, one curled around a black revolver, the other’s greedy fingers reaching towards the window. In that moment, it felt like such a disgusting betrayal of our family’s privacy, clenching my gut. I registered my father’s tense stance, shoulders set; alert. Seeing the ever assertive man helpless at the hands of a scrawny 20 year old brandishing a revolver, tilted my world in its axis. A thousand pictures played on a reel in my mind, of blood and gore, and a belligerent wave of emotion crashed: despair. I sat immobile, only aware of the horrifying scene unfolding before my eyes. “Ye wala nai, wou wala.” He drawled, cracking the deadly silence. My father......

...Jordan Hollingsworth Professor Appling English 1102 28 February 2016 Paper on Simon J. Ortiz “(My Father’s Song) A poem is a set up of words out together into a piece of writing that partakes of the nature of both speech and song that is nearly always rhythmical, usually metaphorical, and often exhibits such formal elements as meter, rhyme, and stanza structure. In the poem written by Simon J. Ortiz is a very touch poem about ones father and how he misses him dearly. He recalls a memory they had once shared together. The next poem that will be laid out and made more clearer to the viewer will be a poem about a mans father and his hard work. The narrator of the story is one that is recalling his past and how he felt bad for his dad as a young boy. As he has gotten older and more understanding to challenges in life he starts to relative the hardship and to feel bad for his dad. Some expressions or descriptions that are used inside poems are figurative language, symbolisms, metaphor, simile, and personification. Figurative language is words or expressions with a meaning that is different from the literal interpretation. Symbolisms are the use of symbols to represent ideas or qualities. In the essay we will discuss the ideas of how the author uses different ways that they have put there thought together in the poem. Metaphor is a term of used to imply comparison between two literally incompatible items; it does not use explicit connective words. Simile is an explicit......

Disappointing Moment in My Life

...Naw Hpaw Dr. James Sanders ENG101, 7:00 am 8 June 2016 Disappointing Moment in My Life Having worked three years as coordinator at the Karen Peace Support Initiative (Burma), a non-government organization that helps resettle displaced persons, I firmly believed I could communicate effectively with grass roots people and my superiors. But, sometimes life is full of disappointment. It came on December 11, 2012, as I sat in my office writing a report on training I had recently completed for some villages. Suddenly, in a very loud voice, my manager called me into his office where he was checking a report I had given him previously. As I stood beside him, his hand clutched a cup of coffee, while the other held my report. I remember the black jacket and shoes, and glasses, he was wearing. After several minutes, he put my report down and exchanged the coffee cup for a bowl of noodle soup. I thought he would explain why he called me, but he said nothing. It became very embarrassing just standing there. Minutes passed and still he didn't speak. Frustrated, I spoke to him politely as possible and asked if there was anything I could do or comment I could make. No response. As I stood close alongside, it became more difficult to smile. In fact, he began to frighten me, and his strange grin unnerved me, even as he kept eating his noodle soup. It was scary and very embarrassing. Finally, he spoke. "I need your wholehearted support in carrying out our project," he said, to which I......

The Most Embarrasing Moment of My Life

...THE MOST EMBARRASING MOMENT OF MY LIFE It was an inter-regional Senior High School soccer competition, and my school being the zonal champion was to play with another school to determine the regional champion. It was 7am and already one could tell the day is going to be sunny, as the sun had already started showing its ugly face. By 8am my team members had assembled at the school assembly hall, dressed in the school navy blue and golden yellow track suite, I was called to address my team mates. Since I was the captain of the school team, I was filled with anxiety and overwhelming thought as I began to speak to them. Although I do not remember exactly what I said to them, I felt everyone was energized with a winning spirit. We all entered the bus, prayed and began to sing till we got to the El-wak sports stadium. The stadium was filled with students from the participating schools, spectator institutions and the enthusiastic public spectators. As I led my team out of the bus to the changing room, I could hear cheers and rowdy applause from the crowd; the feeling was great as I felt the need to put up my very best.
