ENGL 1101 24 September 2012 Graduation Day Graduation is one of the few times where others not only share in your excitement, but can aso be even more overwhelmed for your "big day”. Graduation is a ceremony used to celebrate the moving forward after working hard in one arena in preparation for your future. It is the only time I can think of where a student may quench the thirst of closure in one endeavor and the start of another all in the same breathe. Although we view graduation as a celebration, for me it seemed like a big fat eviction notice since I would no longer be living with my parents. You see for four years teachers, parents, even previous graduates spread the hype that on the day of graduation you will have the time of your life.
After his collage career he went straight into the military. In the military he was a polit during the Korean War. Once the war end the NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) saw that Neil was a very skilled pilot and they asked him if he would want to be a test pilot for them. As his long career end he became a teacher. Neil Armstrong is a great example of a true American because of his military service, his service during the Apollo Missions, and later in his career in teaching collage.
I didn’t mind paying the 1,250 dollars to send him there for six years. For Junior’s seventh birthday he wanted a bicycle, so two weeks before his birthday he gets his first bicycle. It was a red bicycle that had black and white words but you could not get away without buying the matching helmet and pads. Junior began to act out at age 12 he was a disobedient child and determined to harm him others; I didn’t know how to control him, so I made my husband write the check to send him to he Columbia Military Academy and he finished his high school education there. They really did help him he ended up graduating top of his class.
Failure was no option in Armstrong’s life although he got turned down several times, he never gave up, he knew that this was what he wanted. The Incentive theory played the most important role in Neil’s life. The incentive theory stresses the role of the environment in motivating behavior and incentive is the object we seek or the result we are trying to achieve through our motivational behavior. This applies to Armstrong’s life because he studied at the best university of Aeronautics, he earned his wings at twenty years of age, conducted over fifty types of experimental aircrafts, selected for the Man In Space Soonest program and was selected as the first American civilian to fly in space. This reflexes on the incentive theory because it showed his dedication and commitment he had to achieving his goal.
I have the longest days ever with college, lessons at the most awkward times, that leaves me with a 3 hour break everyday at college with nothing to do I prefer attending college the whole day,rather then going home and back to college, jumping up and down like a frog, staying put at college just makes my life the slightest easier. If only my day would melt away fast as snow there wouldn’t be a single
“I was going to win, and I was going to run that last kite. Then I’d bring it home and show it to Baba. Show him once and for all that his son was worthy.” (p. 56). Fortunately for Amir, he not only wins the kite tournament, he also wins Baba’s heart. So for Amir’s thirteenth birthday, Baba throws him a huge birthday bash.
takeera Barfield Comp& Lit It was a hot sunny day in June the day was after my 10th birthday I will never forget I had woke up really early that morning before my mom, my dad, my brothers and sister in fact, I didn’t even get much sleep the night before because I was super excited .

Good old George Patton, he gave such amazing speeches. I truly wish I could have had the chance to go to one. He was a great man and I got to be in his shoes during the Movers and Shapers conference my sophomore year. Man, I loved that day. I have never been so fascinated by someone from history in my whole life.
For my research paper I chose to focus on Lil Wayne. I admire him because he is hard working and he has gone through a lot to achieve his American dream and he never gave up on it. Lil Wayne's American dream was to have a better life for himself and move his family out of the ghetto. He had been trying to do that since he was young and then he finally got discovered at the age of 13 by Birdman who was a well-known local producer. He took Lil Wayne to the top and even though he had to drop out of high school it was wroth it because he is now worth over 24 Million dollars.
Two years ago when I was 15, I suffered a spinal cord injury. I was at the top of my game,top of my class and top runner on the ski team.I do not want to sound too full of myself when I say I was "overwhelmed" with responses from the hottest guys but there he was H***** I never really had a boyfriend til then.We seem so perfect for each other I thought he was my soul mate. The night before I broke my back he said he loved me. So much for his being in love. Once I had licked my wounds and felt ready to try this again so i got back out there with what I thought were my true friends.
