Every year on Thanks-Giving my mother, brother, and I would make a colorful Christmas chain to count down the days until Christmas. Each day my brother would announce the number of days left, pick me up, and let me rip off a decorated chain until Christmas day came. As a tradition, on Christmas Eve every year we would spend time with my father 's side of the family. My favorite part about visiting my family
Christmas Eve mass starts at around 6 o’clock, and usually gets over at around 8 o’clock. It is usually close to two hours long, but we do not mind because Christmas reminds us why we attend. I love Christmas Eve mass because of the music the choir sings. They remind me of the angels that would be singing around the manager of Jesus after he was born on Christmas Eve hundreds of years ago. The music is soothing, and makes a person realize how beautiful celebrating Christmas is.
The things that I value are what have morphed me into the person th... ... middle of paper ... ...acles that I will overcome to reach my goal are my very hectic schedule, and my tendency to procrastinate. When I reach this goal, my life will be better because I will be almost half- way finished with my college education, I will have gained abundant information through my experiences, and I will be able to fully support my child without needing help from government programs. My values, personality type, multiple intelligences, and learning style all pertain to my long-term goal. The things that I now value in life, have greatly affected my life in that I want the best not only for me, but my child as well. Before my child, all that I wanted to do was be a tattoo artist.
When I finally did that, I felt so much better because I made a decision and stuck to it. When I had let my emotions control me, I was a wreck and hated who I was becoming; therefore, I wish everyone could have more control over their emotions as living with uncontrolled emotions takes a toll on everyday
However, I know myself and anything that screams challenge is terrifying and is usually greeted with a certain type of laziness. If things go like they normally do as I take strides to find my way, I’ll probably end up getting around to actually accomplishing the objective at some point or another. I’m not lazy in the traditional sense; it’s a procrastination that makes the situation more difficult than need be. So, I suppose that I’ll need to put the whole procrastination thing on my to-do list for things to fix… but I’ll save that for another day. In any case I really do have a lot that I want to accomplish, but never enough time to do so in an orderly fashion.
As I got into Middle school, it was easy even without studying I had a grade that made my parents proud. Because of the grade I was getting, my parent assumed I was responsible enough to get a phone and anything else I wanted. As year passed by I started wanting a future, and my teachers keep telling me that with a grade as good as mine, I will be going to a good college and will have a bright future. I have always done my homework’s but I don’t really know what I was doing because I never studied. The best part about middle school is that you don’t have to do as many works as you could to get a good grade so I didn’t need to do much, I just do what they gave me, which was few paper works a
My parents always managed to make Christmas a special day for us, no matter how much money they had. We were raised to be thankful for the little things about the day, like being all together, and not just the gifts. Everyone has their own traditions for Christmas, some people open gifts the night before, some people go to bed early and wake up in the middle of the night to open presents. But, my family isn’t like every other family, my family has the reindeer dance. Every year my mom makes the best prime rib dinner.
We all buy presents for each other, decorate the house, cook Christmas eve and Christmas day dinner, just the typical Christmas for our household. My dad and I have always gone out and find one present that we give to a random orphan at the local orphanage, we have done this for a few years apart as a tradition from his job. Holiday celebrations are often a real fun and festive time in my house. I loved everything about the holidays and I always look forward to it each year, and it is the people living in my house that are the reason for this too. We all just forget about the past for this little period of time and just appreciate everything we all have
A Very Special Christmas Dinner Even though it was many years ago, I vividly remember our family Christmas gatherings. I was a little kid, no older than the age of 11. My mom drove in that day from San Diego, Her birthday was on the eighth of that month; however, for some reason, we celebrated her birthday along with Christmas every year. Every Christmas, my grandmother would gather every single one of her sons and daughters, total of eight, to come and celebrate Christmas. She never failed to reunite all the members.
Hardworking: I consider hardworking to be one of my greatest strengths because I always strive to go above and beyond the expectations that I am held accountable for. In my personal life, I get a sense of accomplishment by attending college full-time while also having a part-time job. In my professional career, I always am striving to get all my daily tasks done and at least three more unexpected activities. I consider hardworking to also include balancing my family, friends, work, and leisure time on my days off. .
