With great determination, I managed to attend morning, afternoon and evenings classes to graduate by April of 2009. In less six months, I had managed to complete all my missing credits and attain my diploma. Then, I joined the Marine Corps and five months later I was sent off to basic training in South Carolina. For the most part, I am glad that I ran into that Marine Corps recruiter at my
There are numerous of things to look forward to your senior year. Freedom, early dismissal, late arrival, homecoming week, college acceptance letters, and graduation. I was always reminded to be aware of this senior disease called senioritis, a case of laziness your senior year, but I was not told to be aware of tears and torture. The first day I walked through Ridge Spring Monetta High School doors as a senior, I felt like a target. Eyes turned into laser beams straight for my heart.
Despite continuous allegations from Pakistan regarding the safety of their nuclear stockpile, the U.S. should intervene and cease the arsenal due to increasing terrorist threats, corrupt Pakistani officials working with the terrorists, and a weak political infrastructure showing signs of failing. Concern has arose over a fear that Terrorist forces in a region of increasing instability could possibility gain control of the weapons or seize nuclear materials. According to American intelligence assessments, Pakistan’s arsenal is the sixth largest in the world, and could potentially become the fifth largest if they continue to expand their stockpile. Pakistan has established new nuclear reactors and have expand their variety of nuclear materials. According to David E. Sanger, and Eric Schitt, writers for the New York Times, the amount of weapons in their are arsenal were, “in the mid-to-high 70s.” Laboratories around the country contain nuclear material, and the factories that make them are at risk of terrorist thievery or complete seizure.
The Best Day of My Life I was told all my life that your senior year is the most critical year of your high school career. Until my first day of senior year, August 25th, 2014, I didn’t realize how true that statement really was. As I walked through the lobby that morning, it didn’t take me long to realize that I would never see many of these people again after graduation. Although I knew the next 180 days would be very difficult, I knew that in the end it would all be worth it. When I received my diploma from Elkin High School on the evening of June 12th, 2015, I soon realized this would be the best day of my life.

Northeastern Co-ops The key to a well-rounded college career is having a combination of experiential education and academic studies. Having the opportunity to dapple into your field of study one year into college is an experience not offered to most students.

Northeastern University, in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts, offers just that to all of its undergraduate students. Northeastern University is ranked number one in co-ops by the Princeton Review, and offers a six-month long internship program every year.
Even though North Korea has threatened war several times, this self-proclaimed defensive country explains their decision to develop nuclear weapons by claiming they need to defend themselves. North Korea does not only pose problems to their neighbors, they are a world-wide threat. Even though this third-world country contains much poverty, their overly aggressive actions over the past few decades have caused them to appear on the radars of worldwide powers since they are a threat to international peace. North Korea’s aggressively provocative actions are noticeably precipitating a nuclear World War Three. Japan annexed Korea in 1910 when it enforced a brutal regime over the peninsula.
Recent events have shown this arguable seems to have fallen on deaf ears. North Korea has a long history of defying other nations and this appears to be one of their most significant acts of defiance in the countries history.

Nuclear Tension Within North Korea and Iraq Introduction: In recent years the issue of nuclear armament has become a growing concern in world politics. The United States has taken on the self appointed role of world bully on this issue. Believing it self the sole country with the ability to keep nuclear weapons, while belligerently are striking out against other countries that pursue nuclear weapons, or are believed to have them in their possession. Using the events of 9-11 as its cause, the United States has launched a “War on Terrorism” in which it has bombed Afghanistan in hopes of “destroying” and “finding” the terrorists that attacked the United States. Following its strike against Afghanistan the United States turned its attentions to the dictator Saddam Hussein, and his alleged secret stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.
This day brings with it the end of an era – it is the official end of my AIESEC career at AIESEC Victoria. Each term as a VP starts on March 1 and ends on February 28. This past weekend, the incoming and outgoing teams of AIESEC Victoria planned for the future and came up with a year plan, strategic actions and budgeted to make it happen. It was so inspirational sitting and discussing our successes in the past year and how the new team can build upon these successes and learn from our mistakes to have a great year for themselves. I’m excited for the future of AIESEC Victoria.
