College Admissions Essay: A Pivotal Time in My Life

- A Pivotal Time in My Life   My mother read The Yearling aloud to me when I was eight. I have always thought of that time - those nights when she read, seated in the hall outside the bedrooms, my sister listening from her room and me from mine - our rooms were dark, and the light was on Mother, and her voice was clear and expressive; she was a good reader - I have thought of that as a pivotal time in my literature life. Reading for me, until then, had been The Bobbsey Twins, Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh, and Nancy Drew: a combination of classics and schlock, and I loved it all....   [tags: College Admissions Essay]

I would rephrase it: "Try so hard that it becomes easy, and accept the best things as the best person to receive them."
