I am willing to give up my spare time to set a good example for my family by going to college. The only thing that annoys me the most is when you hear girls out there talking about how they could not finish high school because they were teenage mothers. A little tip is I was a teenage mother and graduated from high school. I had a son and was pregnant for my daughter while I was going to school and I graduated. I was working, taking care of my son as well as going to school.
Not to mention my memory isn’t as sharp as it was years ago so I have to study extra hard and do extra work to help memorize what I am doing. What I read and learn today I am not going to remember for test three weeks from now. So I have to take advantage of the teach and learn center to learn the subject like the back of my hand no questions ask. In addition to my age, having little money is an obstacle in my education as well. Going to school to better my education is quite expensive and time consuming.
He worked hard every day, and after several years he decided one summer he wouldn’t return to Ohio to do the annual picking. He had chosen to attend college and become someone. He was born and raised in Mexico but he was determined to do something. He attended the University of Nebraska as well as the Texas State University in San Marcos and completed his school and got his degree as a Respiratory Therapist. I find this as motivation because just like my dad where is brothers and sister didn’t even graduate high school and make less than minimum wage, I am the first generation child to go to school.
The important issue about this whole salary of professional athletes is that they are over paid for just playing a sport for a few months. Many people including the professional athlete thinks that what they are getting paid to just play a
I was in touch with friends of mine from school and all of them were going to college. I never really thought about going back to school. So by the time I hit 21 years old I thought to myself that I needed to get my life straighten out. I decided to force myself to go back to school and get my GED at least. So I studied and studied and in one try I passed the GED test.
For my childhood observation study, I chose to ask one of my co-workers for permission to study her son. My co-worker’s son, who I will continue to refer to as Sam, is a Caucasian five year old male. Considering that my co-worker and I are pretty close and that I am familiar with her son, I thought that this would be a perfect way to study a child versus studying a child that I am not familiar with. I spent two hours per week over the span of four weeks with her son. Although the observation occurred during the time that we bowled in a league each week, the observations were just enough to get the necessary information needed to write this paper.
Jessica Marlieh Lacer Explore Majors and Careers Career Influence Reflection 1/16/13 My name is Jessica Marlieh Lacer and for many generations my family has done nothing to progress themselves. My career influence is to be the first generation to provide the progress that is needed to make a living. It is partially sad to say that the lack of role models is what has pushed me to further myself and make a career. There must be a person to start progress and I plan to be that person. My desire to progress first came when I was fifteen and looked back at the chaos and struggles my family put themselves through just to be lazy.
Like most high school seniors, I felt I knew everything I needed to pass by life. The thought of college very rarely crossed my mind so after high school all I was thinking of was all I need to do now is find a job. I quickly found out finding a job isn’t as easy as everyone who tells you. When I did think of college, I kept telling myself “I think I should take a few years off from school to find work.” Boy was that the worse idea I ever had, and now I wish I could take it all back. Unlike most high school students I didn’t attend a normal class, I felt the teacher was going too slowly at times and there was never any stress from other Students.
I don’t think elementary school and middle school really prepared me for college the way high school did. Education wise, I feel like high school more closely relates to college in the sense of preparation. Taking AP classes helped show me how much work I needed to start getting used to and the difficulty of that work. What high school did not teach me was that, I have to do everything by myself, literally, everything. I no longer had my mom enrolling me in school, it was all up to me.
Back to School Ramona Dory English 121- Week 3 Assignment Andrea Pfaff - Instructor Regan Tuttle - TA October 10, 2011 Back to School I never thought I would be 43 years old and going back to school. I will be talking about going back to school and why I decided to go back to school to get a degree. I always planned to go to college, after I graduated high school; I attend a technical school and got a diploma in Data Entry. I thought that would help me find a job so that I would be able to go to college, but I was not able to find a job in that field, so I was just working where I could in order to pay bills. I attempt several times before now to go back to school, but always got side track or something distracted me.
