I have two younger brothers and we are all fairly close in age and have good relationships with one another. We grew up with loving, hardworking parents that did everything they could for us even though their own relationship was often strained and troubled. Some of my best memories were on our family vacations. My parents made sure we had enough money to take the whole family on a vacation at least once a year. Those were the times I felt my family was the closest and they are memories I will cherish forever.
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. When it came to asking my boss Kevin, his response I found to be quite shocking. He said his expectations and strategies for managing a family were completely what he expected. He went to college, he has a great job, he comes home, still does some work and in that extra time, he will spend time with his kids and his wife. Between the two responses, I don’t really see a difference in their answers.
Map 1 – Help you stay in charge of your life, whether you are up or down. You will discover how to tap the cycle of change for designing the rest of your life, to use change as a major resource for your future life designs.

My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back. My senior year I transferred to Christ Missionary and Industrial high school (college) the year flew by but I really enjoyed myself there. Now I am still here at CM&I , I supposed to be a summer graduate if everything goes as planned. Once I finish high school I plan on signing up for the air
For many years I was scared to go to college because I thought I wasn’t college material. Hearing Capitan Mark Kelly speak about being an underachiever, and a “not so great” student really helped me see that light at the end of the tunnel. When final build up the courage with in myself, I enrolled into San Jacinto College. The only thing that stood in the way was that standardize test. I had to take the entry exam after five years of not being in school.
Throughout the years in high school I never really thought about my future until my senior year. So in all the years I was in high school I slacked with my grades and was very disappointed in myself when I saw my grade point average at a 2.4 for all four years I did in high school. I thought to myself, “Wow, I could have done so much better if I actually thought about where I was going to be within the next ten years.” I have saw my brothers and sisters go through college so I know I can do it too. The best thing about college is experiencing the new life. You get to meet new people and actually be in the real world.
Everyone should have that one place they like to visit often and is has a great deal of meaning for them whenever they go there. Well, when you grow up in a family with a single mother and three siblings, you do not always get the opportunity much traveling or visit to many place too often. When extra money or saving money had a hard thing to come by you do not get out much. My mother was a single young mother and worked extremely hard to make sure my brothers and I had everything we needed. We only saw things we wanted once in a while.
Not only would I be leaving me brother and my father behind, I would be leaving all of my friends behind too. I was depressed at first, but once I was settled into my new school and made friends it was a little easier. As my mom promised me before moving to North Carolina, we would travel back and visit at least once a month. During these visits every month, I always had a list of things to catch my father up on. I would tell him what was going on in school, how good I was doing in sports, or how bad of a play I made.
In that small town they molded Michael into the person he is today and if it was not for that move way back when he was a kid, he would probably not be where he is at today. To this day, Michael still thanks his mom for moving them out of New York and to North Carolina because he sees that moving their family had the biggest impact on their lives growing
There was some speculation that Mr. Ayers felt extreme pressure to prove himself as one of the few African American students in the highly competitive school. “When he left Julliard and returned to Cleveland he went to live with his mother, who later died in 2000.” (Patricia 2009) His mother consented to allow him to undergo shock therapy. Jennifer Ayers, Nathaniel’s sister said, “mother felt like this was gonna be it. I remember when he came out; he had this look on his face, like a zombie. She expected him to come out as a different person, and it didn’t
