William Priestley 's Chief Function

- WILLIAM stepped into the cool November air. Not even the excitement of learning where he would spend the spring semester of his senior year student teaching could dull his ill-tempered mood. The maestro conducting his executive function directed a mental orchestra to alight a cascade of tears in one moment, and a torrent of abuse the next. William inhaled deeply, hoping the crisp autumn air would settle his angrily churning thoughts. He hawked a mouthful of phlegm and spat violently as he crossed the gravel driveway in front of the three-family home where he rented an apartment on the top floor....   [tags: Barack Obama, Joe Biden, University, United States]

However, my success was short lived as, unfortunately, I would have a downfall in my class performance and inevitably fail. I was depressed and decided not to continue my studies....   [tags: High school, College, Graduation, Graduate school]

Does a Maya person have to hold the same traditions that their ancestors once had and maintain the same rituals and way of life, to be considered Maya. Many ignorantly lament the loss of the Maya culture and tradition modernity has influenced it, but there is not loss; it has simply shifted as it historically has in the past....   [tags: Maya civilization, Maya peoples, Guatemala]

Statement of Purpose

- My experience as an Afro-Latino actor stretches back over fifteen years when I joined the Teatro Escola Macunama in São Paulo, Brazil. At that time, my goal was to become a professional theatre actor. This experience exposed me to different acting systems such as Stanislavsky’s method of physical actions; Brecht’s Epic Theatre and its distancing effect; Grotowski’s experimental Poor Theatre; and Lee Strasberg’s technique of improvisation and affective memory. In the end, the rigor of my training taught me that discipline must exceed the refining of a particular technique, because the maturation of an actor stems from a relentless reflection over the practice....   [tags: Afro-Latino Traditions, Cultural Identity]
