All in all I realized buying the material you dream of does not necessarily guarantee happiness; sometimes the happiness you imagine turns out to merely be an illusion. Purchasing a car turned out to be very joyous; even after buying my car; the happiness it brought was I couldn’t imagine it. I bought a Toyota Prius in last summer. This car proved to be so useful, because I am working at Millbrae city, so I have to drive an hour away from my house; if I take Bart instead of driving, it would take me two hours to get there, I couldn’t imagine that living without it in someday, and it became my best friend in my life. It has helped me to open up opportunities and has served as one of the greatest tools in my
I come from a family that teaches hard discipline. It's not that they want me to go to college, it is already expected that I go to a college. Their idea has always been that the better school I attend, the more successful I will be. I was born and raised in Oakland for eight years. I saw many things happen that a kid that age shouldn't have, including people getting robbed and beat up by some older kids while on my way to school.
With end of my high school carrier came a gift, a 2013 Subaru brz. I work in order to keep and maintain my beloved four liter engine car. Without my car I wouldn't be able to attend school or be a part of the working class. Without my job I wouldn't have the financial funds in order to purchase and keep my vehicle. Keeping the domino effect going, without me being in top physical condition, or not being able to maintain a calm mental state would not only cost me my way of life, it would cost me the thing I enjoy most in the
Henry Ford was very famous for promoting this wonderful commodity that represented a new kind of freedom. It was a symbol of the American Dream, and everyone was striving to have the new product. “The automobile was the backbone of economic growth.” The first real automobile appeared in Middletown in 1900; however, it wasn’t until Henry Ford came around and created a mass production of automobiles that the machine that would provide easy travel would become popular. Although the automobile created such a wonderful freedom, many adults thought that it was tearing families apart. Teenagers were spending more time with their friends driving around instead of staying at home with their family.
Every day, people are faced with having to make difficult decisions in their lives. At sixteen most kids are trying to decide what kind of car they want to drive or outfit they are going to wear on a date. I was challenged with making a decision that would affect not just me but my unborn child for the rest of our lives. In this paper I will discuss the circumstances, the choices that were available to me, the actual decision I made and the reason why. I was a sophomore in high school that had many dreams and goals to look forward to.
Trucks are better than cars. Cars do have advantage. You get more gas mileage on a car then on a truck. With gas being so expensive, one day everyone would like to find a ways to save money. People struggle to fill up there tanks in a truck the reason why is because of gas prizes coming to their highest.
Hopefully this will bring light onto a situation that is very often overlooked by all types of people. The same educational efforts that are aimed at ensuring that all teen drivers know how dangerous texting and driving is need to be aimed at adults as well. All age groups need to be aware that they are putting other lives as well as their own lives at a huge risk. Florida needs to realize that they can make a difference and they can raise awareness to the lives of many. I drive almost every day and I rarely even see signs that tell you to put your seatbelt on, the #1 thing that we must do.
We put new floor pans, a new trunk pan and new quarter panels on the car and yes it was a lot of work. But in the long run this car when we are finished will be something we both can be very proud of because we built it. When we got the car in was nothing but a bucket of rust and now it is coming along great. We are not finished yet but we are getting there slowly but surely. Another reason I decided to choose body work for my project was because I always thought that I would want to do it but I wasn’t sure.
Terrance Childs When I look at myself now, I realize how much I've grown and changed, not only physically, but also mentally as a person in the last couple of years. Less than three years ago , I arrived at the Abraham Clark High School in Roselle, NJ from Newark, NJ without any idea of what to expect. Entering my sophomore year as an innocent fifteen year-old was quite challenging because I felt as though I was hundreds of miles from home and wouldn’t be able to adapt to change. At one point in my life other things were more important to me: studying different types of cars and planes, following every move made by Tyler Perry, and seeing the latest blockbuster movies like "The Dark Knight" or "Spider Man 3." Midway through my senior
Texting and Driving Driving is a difficult activity. When someone drives they are supposed to pay attention to all their surroundings. Everyday I drive I try to be as safe as possible and not get distracted. About 5 months ago I didn’t care about safety and looked at my phone all the time. Little did I know I would pay for that terrible decision.
