Carla Wright My Return to School English Composition 1 Denya Cuiffo October 14, 2013 When we attend college as adults, we have expectations of what college will be or will not be. I decided to go back to school for quite a few reasons. The main factors for my returning to school includes my family and stability also plays big role in my returning to school. My reasons for going back to school is to gain communication skills, become a good role model for my children, if I decide to have any, gain independence and seek profitable employment that would be profitable for me. My father has always been my support system in my return to school.
Nathan Prince GS 1145 5-11-15 Unit 9 Assignment 1: Adding to My Self-Knowledge In taking the various personality tests to see where my strengths and weakness lay, some introspection on improvement has been able to take place. Many of my strengths seem to be based on leadership skills and keeping true to standards and traditions. These are good qualities to have but can also get in the way of outside opinions and accepting of new ideas. Finding a balance between the two spectrums will really help develop a more balanced person in my opinion. The test that examines more in depth of leadership styles produced a somewhat predicted outcome.
Occasional arguments are good for friendship relationships. The trick is to learn how to do it fairly. Occasional arguments help us to learn how to better understand each other, gives us room to freely express ourselves, and they don’t allow problems about certain situations to build up one after another. An argument is defined as a reason or set of reasons given with the aim of persuading others that an action, idea, or thought is right or wrong. In order to have a friendship that works or is healthy you have to argue sometimes to better understand the other person.
To me this is absolutely true. Why should we spend our time fearing the inevitable? We are given only a few short years to experience the world, friendships, loves, and losses. Even the bad experiences teach us to appreciate the good ones. This doesn’t mean we should all go out and be terrible people just so we will appreciate our good experiences, but rather that we should learn from our mistakes.
I found this information to be false until really reflecting on my true nature in the workplace. At which time, I realized, I really do tend to care more about what I get out of job as opposed to what others are getting. So the results of this assessment were very insightful and are helping me fix the areas I have weaknesses in. My personal ethical lens can direct my academic behavior in a couple ways. For instance my ethical lens revealed that I am an independent worker who wants all the credit for the work that I do.
Even though we have become more independent, she still does her best to be the best mom she can be. She has always tried to find a balance between working and being a wife and mother, but found that she has always put that first in her life before a career. She is now still working to help put me and my sister through college and will still work to pay for our weddings. Then she will work for her grandchildren. I guess you can say her role in life is to be happy, live comfortably financially and do everything she can to make her family comfortable and happy.
Monica Herrera EDUC-1300-61025 Where I Want To Be We all have dreams and goals of how we want our life to be. I don’t have it all planned out yet, but I do have an idea. My quality world includes: happiness, financial stability, security, love, family, etc. I want to have a great career as a pediatric nurse, I want to be married by the time I’m 30 so I can start a family, I would like a pretty big house but not too big, and I want to grow as a person in all kinds of ways. It all starts where I am right now, in college.
Although doing this can be somewhat tricky for some people, I believe that it has nothing but great benefits. Having and maintain a personal budget allows you to see and know where your money is going. Once you figure this out, you will then be able to figure out how much money goes to every item. In doing this, it will allow you to create a budget plan. When one has a strict budget plan in place, it becomes less stressful on any individual.
I pick these main two goals because my kids are my life so they come first. I want to do the best I can with raising them and being there. Getting this degree will really help me set my future up and my two kid’s future also. I picked school as a goal of mine because my first time around, I didn’t show up a lot. I got a job and made some decent money so I decided I didn’t care for school.
You only have so much time in a day and when you are a mother attending college and working there are sacrifices you are going to have to make to be more efficient; such as your friends, money, and your youth. I love hanging out with my friends and including them in my life but I realize, given my circumstances that I just can’t be with them all the time like in high school. I tell my friends that it’s part of growing up, they fully understand and support me and planning a study night together is a great way to make your time with one another more valuable. Saving money is an essential part of being able to balance out my bills, pay for all my books for college, and taking care of my children’s needs. Just like many other people in the world I live paycheck to paycheck but I have learned that putting back as little as five dollars out of check and keeping all your change will help you out more than you think.
