Have you ever wanted to read someone else’s story? My personal story is a long journey and I am going to take you through it. It has been a wild ride at times but I have learned a lot from all of my experiences and I plan to share it with you! It all started on February 26 1999, in Woodstock Illinois.
I am the youngest of three girls. My Mom’s name is Megan and she is Special Education teacher for grades fourth through eighth. My Dad’s name is John and he is a Chief Credit Officer in a bank. My oldest sisters name is Courtney and she is 23 years old. She is a first grade teacher. My second oldest sisters name is Caitlyn. She is 20 and has a four-month-old baby boy. She is going to college for Health Services Administration. I also have two dogs, named Boomer and Chip. We have had Boomer for 12 years now and he is a Bichon. My dog Chip is 3 years old now, and he is a Chihuahua rat terrier mix, we got him from a animal shelter were we had rescued him from. Dogs are great to have in a family because they bring joy and play into your everyday life.
I was born in a small town in Illinois and lived there until I was four years old. We moved to Iowa when I was four. The town we lived in in Illinois was about the same size as DeWitt. It was a smooth transition for me because I was only four. I didn’t really care where I was as long as I was with my family. I could make friends anywhere.

...nd acceptance and achievement and competence. I have also reached my fulfillment of potential. I have reached fulfillment of potential in life by doing what I want to be doing and just enjoying life. I will continue to work on the top level of the hierarchy but continuing to work on my career and personal goals. (Rathus, 2010 p.367).
I have learned a lot from my experiences through life so far and I hope it continues to be a wild ride at times! I still have a long life ahead of me. I hope I can work towards my future goals and aspirations of becoming a psychiatric nurse. I also hope I can achieve my future goals and aspirations in my personal life as well. I would like to get married and start a family. I know it may take a lot of hard work and dedication but I am very motivated to achieve all I can in my life. I can’t wait to see what life has in store for me!

- At first glance, what makes a fairy tale a fairy tale may seem obvious—some kind of magic, hidden symbols, repetition, and of course it’s evident it’s fiction—but fables are more than that.

A wonderful story that achieves all of this is Cinderella, but not the traditional tale many American’s have heard.... [tags: Literature, The Rough Faced Girl]

Being a single mom meant driving a purple minivan to her big, fancy accountant building in uptown. Her feet are still calloused from wearing heels. My sisters and I were left to cook, clean and take care of the dog until bed time.... [tags: Family, Father, Mother, Parent]
