My Personal Experience Learning to Golf

- Many people take up Golf thinking that it is easy, after all, how hard can it be to hit a little white ball with a stick. This thinking evaporates the first time they step onto a driving range and attempt to hit that little white ball. Golf is not easy by any stretch of the imagination. My experience with golf began in May of 2005 when friends came to stay with us; my wife informed me that I would have to take Roy, her friend’s husband Golfing. I had not been to a driving range (since I was in my teens) and I had never played golf on a course before....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Personal Experience]

Personal Values and my Air Force Experience

- I was only nine years old, but I can almost still feel the bitter cold and the excitement in the thin air while sitting in the stands in the Rocky Mountains.

Personal Experience in Training and Development

- Personal review This programme comes later in my life and career, so I have thought at length on my motivation for embarking on this. My main reason - I still strongly believe, even at this mature stage, this will open opportunities that have previously been closed off. Working for 15 years as a Trainer and Lecturer in Further Education, I have acquired a keener awareness of learners’ personal development needs - which I view as one of my major strengths. Previously I helped design then delivered a 9-unit training programme (I.T....   [tags: Personality, Teaching, Customer Care]

My Experience As A Pre-Pharmacy Student

Over the past couple of years I have matured and have become a well-rounded person because of my involvement in school. Being a pre-pharmacy student has taught me how to strive for excellence in my classes and in other day- to-day activities....   [tags: Personal Experience]

Personal Statment: UCLA Directing MFA Admissions Essay

- Powerful theater combines intellectual ideas and artistry of language with the visual power of movement and physical strength. The theater I most appreciate involves the actors’ equal commitment to their bodies as to their voices. This theater makes art of the entirety of our evolution—biological, linguistic, and cultural—and represents the ultimate artistic elevation of the human spirit.

Personal Experience: Dreams are not Illegal

- As a country we have continued to grow, becoming more diverse and allowing acceptance to change, but still struggle to allow each other to express our own beliefs without the hardship of each others opinions. Growing up with Hispanic students in my classes since kindergarten there were nothing more than good friends and a fellow classmate. Becoming close to a Hispanic student, I soon learned that this person does not have the same opportunity as me to continue their post secondary education.

My Olympic Experience

- Attending the Olympics is a pursuit both aggravating and exhilarating. This paradox characterized my experience of the games. There will always be more exciting events to attend, but that does not diminish the intense allure of the biggest party in the world, whether or not there is anything to enjoy in it. The Vancouver Olympic events both sporting and cultural were characterized by agonizingly long lines, hyper-dense crowds, and expensive, often unobtainable tickets.

I suppose that, looking back on it, I can honestly say that most of the year depended on how well I was able to read, write and adapt new skills.
