Since I was little I’ve always liked helping people. It never mattered if they asked for help on something that I didn’t know how to do, I’d help them as much as I could. Before it was always help on homework or things that they wanted me to do. Most recently I have been through some things that really affected the way that I want to help people. I’ve met some people with really hard lives, which made me realize that I want to help people with depression. When I talk to these people they tell me about what’s happening in their lives, and it saddens me that no one else has tried to help them or even listen to them. I have an amazing family. Everyone supports everything that I do if it makes me happy. My family has shaped me into who I am today. As a little girl, I was always told “do to one, as you would do to yourself.” So, I always did. My parents raised me to be respectful to people who respected me. They were with me through tough times and through good times, and I know they will be there for me in the future when I need them to be. Growing up around both my mom and my dad, I’ve learned a lot through what they do, and how they treat people. I believe thats the reason that I dream to help people. Another thing that has encouraged me to help people is my music. The music that I listen to gets me through some bad times when I don’t want to talk to anyone. If you listen to the lyrics, they actually mean something. Usually the lyrics talk about the bad times and things the writer has gone through. It talks about how you have to keep your head up even when times are hard. Music has made me feel like I’m not the only one who goes through bad times. It makes me feel like I fit in somewhere when, sometimes, I don’t know if I do. I want to help people, the way that music has helped me.

My Life

...has always felt that there was something missing in my life. I tried many different things like learn how to knit or exercise, but still there was something missing. Until one day I felt unhappy about my job I felt that I can do but of course I wanted to get paid. About five years ago I decided that I wanted to further my education so that I can make more money and be able to live comfortably instead of check by check. But for some reason every time I tried to enroll something came up. This past weekend I decided I’d go for it without giving it a second thought and here I am. I spoke to my family about it after I enrolled and was amazed at the response I received my husband said “Go for it babe” my children said (at the same time) “Go mom”. I felt good about my decision. With a college education I know I will reach my goal. I currently work at a Children’s Rehabilitation Center I am the Senior Front Desk Manager there but I am more than positive that I can make this place run much better than how it is now. I realized that every time I mention an idea to my boss she makes the changes and she’s glorified for it. I learned to keep my ideas to myself get my education and take her job. My goal is to be able to make positive changes in my life in its totality with a college education I can make more money and be able to live comfortably. I would like to one day own a home and a vehicle, I would like to take yearly vacations with my family, and I would like to see the world. Mr.......

Its senior year and time is ticking till graduation. As I transform into a mature adult, it is time for me to make decisions and set out what I want to be in life. My ambitions are to obtain an athletic scholarship for football, to help pave the way to becoming a civil engineer. It will be a bumpy ride along the way, but I can propel myself to achieve anything. I anticipate though sports such as football, can fund for my schooling to become a civil engineer. If I have a phenomenal upcoming season I can hopefully get recognized by athletic scouts and receive a full ride scholarship to a university. Though the off season I trained arduously to improve my talents as a player. Once I have reached my goal of becoming a student athlete in college, I will study a great deal to reach my main objective of becoming a civil engineer. Civil engineers deal with the designing of roads, bridges, and major highways. They construct the major structures around a city .The description of civil engineers, are to be fluid in mathematics and sciences. Therefore, I have enrolled in Calculus A.P. and Physics 2 A.P. These are rigorous courses to take, but both are the foundations of engineering. So why not get a step ahead of my competition? I......

This year I decided to use a very organized and methodical process by identifying a list of goals I want to achieve in my life, creating a plan to follow, so I can be able to stay on target and meet those goals. From the list I created, I choose the three most important goals that will shape and change my life, a personal goal, an academic goal, and a professional goal. Being healthy is very important for me and for my family. I want to enjoy my life with my kids without any pain, illness and disease of any kind. I am 5ft 1 tall, and 143 pounds. My healthy weight should be 130 pounds, so for my personal goal I decided to lose 13 pounds in two months.

Goals in Life

...Goals in Life I firmly believe that if one plans on being a successful person in society, setting goals is a very important step. Having goals not only gives you a clear focus on things, it also helps you to organize your plans by allowing you to give yourself time limits and boundaries. Athletics are very fun, and may help count towards a goal in life. Sports may be fun, but you need hard work to become good at it. There is a chance that one day I may be able to get a scholarship for college. Sports take up time, and at some points are hard and may be a burden, but it is all worth it in the end. Becoming a better athlete is a goal of mine, but there are goals more important and the next one is. In only having sports and not education it would be like owning a car, but with out an engine inside. I want that engine; therefore I must get my education and maintain a high GPA. I could accomplish this by doing all my work. Also not only doing my work, but on time and as neat as I can get it. One goal that I work hard at daily is to try to do well in high school. I try to involve myself in any activity that I can, both academically and socially, so that I can graduate with honors. The reason why I do this is because I plan on going to college, and I would like to be able to get accepted into any school that I apply to. Immediately after I graduate, I want to start my career as an architect. In order to achieve my goal I will have to paying attention in class, and try to do more......

I could work and still get a degree at the same time. After going through the feeling of missing something in my life, I wanted something to fill that void. I wanted a degree to feel special, to feel self-worth inside. I want a degree so badly that I work all day and school work at night.

To provide an example the excerpt states that "its promised was whispered in the first days of the Creation under the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil: Ye shall be as gods."

Secondly, Chambers states that the communist has a rationalism epistemology. Examples are stated in the second paragraph where Chambers states that it is the vision of man's mind to be the sole force of its rational intelligence, redirecting man's destiny and reorganizing man's life and the world.

...Alexa Jaime January 7th, 2015 AVID 11 Life Goals Essay Now that I am a junior in high school, it’s important for me to know what I want to do with my life after graduation and what steps I have to take to get there. In order to pursue the career you want to go into, you have to take a few more steps in order to get to that point. It might take a while for you to get there, but it’ll most likely be worth it. For now let’s start with the basics. No matter what career choice you decide to want to go for, you need to have the proper education even after high school in order to get there. As for me, I was currently stuck between three collages; University of Washington, Washington State University, and Central Washington University. After doing some deep research, I stuck to my current choice in my future education with the University of Washington (I’ll explain my reason why I choose this school later). I know in order for me to get accepted into the University, I need to start working on some acceptance essays for the collage and to obviously graduate high school. I feel like those two steps are the bigger ones to take as of right now. Let’s say I end up getting admitted into the University of Washington, now I need to figure out what courses I want to take in order to get where I want to be. As for me, I would like to work in the dental industry and become an orthodontist or dental assistant. Like I have stated before, I did some deep......

I also I started school at an older age because of lack of financial support form my parents, I was unable to continue with my studies. He used to make walk long miles to school every day and our school was very far from our home almost two hundred miles.

Next, my uncle is person that cares about education than anything in life because he believes that education is start point of ever thing in life. If I receive anything below an A plus, he would want an explanation. Also, if I receive A in my all class, he rewards me. Finally, my uncle achieved everything through hard work and determination.

...out of my friends. Time and time again I helped them with personal problems and resolve conflicts. I also am very interested in people and figuring out why they do what they do. While I have other abilities that are applicable to other career fields, this is the one I enjoy the most. I have already begun step one of my plan to become a therapist. I am currently working towards a degree in psychology which is the foundation of all the jobs in my field of interest. Once I have my undergrad I need to narrow down what specific career I want. The term therapist is a broad term used to describe the many different types of healthcare professionals who specialize in providing mental health services. Psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, professional counselors and psychiatric nurses can all work as therapists. I have already narrowed it down to either a psychiatrist or family therapist. I plan on joining the Air Force after getting my undergrad degree. This will serve the dual purpose of paying for my school, working with military personnel and their families. If I choose to become a psychiatrist I will need to go to the doctorate level. I could acquire my master’s degree then work as a family therapist in the air force while simultaneously earning my doctorate degree to become a psychiatrist. In conclusion, I am not yet decided on a specific career. Therefore I cannot layout a complete plan on how I will become a professional. All I can do at this point is earn my......

...Running head: THE ADVANTAGES OF ME QUTTING SMOKING My goal to stop smoking Sarah E Fortenberry One main goal I have set for myself is to stop smoking. I have been a smoker since I was fifteen years old, and I find it unattractive and very nasty but yet it seems to calm me when I’m stressed, and it also has extremely bad consequences. For one I have a son and I want to be around him my whole life and if I continue smoking I could possibly develop cancer and live a short life and my son would not deserve that. I do not smoke at home or anywhere near my son or in my car, I only smoke at work but that’s still not an excuse that it is okay to me. In the following paragraphs I will provide information of three articles that I’ve read, one to understand more of why I do it, how to do it, and benefits to encourage doing it. The first article I selected is “Men, Women, and the Dangers of Smoking” and written by Dennis Thompson Jr. and medically reviewed by Pat F. Bass III, MD, MPH. The article explained to me that there is gender differences between why men and women smoke. I never knew that smoking could be defined by gender. For a man it explains that it keeps them going throughout the day, and for women it is mainly used to decrease stress. I do agree for me that is does decrease stress because I only find the need to do it at work after having a huge rush come in for coffee. The article explains that women...

I do not just want to be an ordinary Christian who only attends church, but I want His light to shine every day of my life. People will grow to forget many people who they have met through life's road, whether through school, work, church, social clubs, or any other thing they have been a part of, but people remember the person that changed their life. As a follower of Jesus, i want to be a man who is remember for saving someones life, just a doctor saves a terminally ill patient. Our country is dying from its religious foundations and unless Christians do their part, many people will waster away in the eternity of hell. I have the ambition to do something so great the entire world gets saved, and they may seem crazy, but it only starts with one person, then another.
