She grew up in a fun, always exciting, house where her older sisters always brought new surprises. The Lewrys were very happy in Michigan, but soon after Emma turned four her mom grew tired of the rainy, cloudy weather, and they started looking for a new place to live. They had California in mind, because they visited Disneyland so often, and they decided to look there. Emma’s parents bought a house, and the family moved out there as fast as they could. When Emma got there she started at CDC preschool and met a group of new friends.
Having my mom as a teacher in kindergarten was like having recess all day long. However, she could always get me involved using her amazing imagination. When our family had to move to North Fork, Colorado to follow my dad’s job, my mother continued to teach me as well as my brother Andy. Her creativity never stopped... ... middle of paper ... ...sh a job, I am a college graduate and will now work smarter. As a speaker at our graduation I am supposed to represent all of the graduating class from State University but I don’t see the relevancy in that.
Our tour finished in one of Ha... ... middle of paper ... ...eriences I’d ever have. I thanked her for her time and left Haaland Hall. Heading back to Christensen, my mind flooded with thoughts and advice, I felt more at ease. I had become an effective leader in high school, and had taken my freshmen year of college to get my own bearings. I have begun the spring semester of my freshmen year feeling fairly established and finally at ease, as UNH becomes my home away from home.
Also my elder sister was attending UMass for the 4th year as I entered as a freshman. Even though at age 17 I had finally been living by myself with a roommate and without my parents, my parents eased their mind knowing my sister is here to take care of me. However that did not happen. My sister was in her senior year when I was a freshman and she was pursuing a double major and a minor. She had a very busy life.
• Whitney´s Best friend: She is a good student, likes parties and hanging out. Whitney´s Change Once upon a time there was a family that lived in a little town called The Magnificent, Josh the dad, Elizabeth the mother, Whitney the older daughter, and Sahara the youngest. They were a really happy and religious family. Whitney was almost turning into 16 in four months and she was derailing by the way their parents had guided her. It was Sunday and church was just over, Whitney´s best friend invited her to her party that was next weekend, she was so excited and happy to go, she told her mom and she was also happy for it.
College: most of us have all been there and for some of us it was the best four, or five, years of our lives. College is a place where we start fresh from high school and not only make something of ourselves, but also find out who we can really be. Aside from all the stress before even starting college, including the applications, the scholarships and a future career path, there is something we all must be a part of, and that is dorm life. All normal college campuses have dorms; whether they are big or small, have one thing in common. The entire freshman body has to live in them their first year.
My sister, Caitlyn Passaretti, was an RA her sophomore year at Boston College. As a resident assistant Caitlyn had to have an open door policy and help her residents through anything that they went through. Most of her residents used her as a source of strength to help them get through the challenging adaptation to college life; however, there were a few students who did not. Some of the ones that did not like to speak with her were simply shy or thoroughly adjusted to living on their own in a college environment. However, there was one boy (we will call him Greg) who suffered from antisocial personality disorder.
Those are two of my strongest qualities time management, and being unbiased. Now that I am well into my sophomore year of college, I think that I finally have a good idea about time management. Being a full time student in twenty credit hours that is working part time can feel overwhelming at times. There were times in the last year where I felt like I had too much to do, and not enough time. This caused me so much stress, but I couldn’t be mad at anyone but myself.
Graduation out of Pride or Fear? In Paul Toughmay’s “Who Gets to Graduate,” he follows a young first year college student, Vanessa Brewer, explaining her doubts, fears, and emotions while starting her college journey. As a student, at the University of Texas Brewer feels small and as if she doesn’t belong. Seeking advice from her family she calls her mom but after their conversation Brewer feels even more discouraged. Similar to Brewer I have had extreme emotions, doubts, and fears my freshman year in college.
Not only am I the first to go to college in my family but I was also four years rusty of being in an educational environment at the time of my enrollment. Once I started class though, I could tell right away that it would be the same as high school, possibly worse. The first few weeks were relatively simple. In the beginning all the lessons pertained to were introductions of classmates, professors, and
