I Want To Live Life

What do you think of when you hear the word marriage? When I hear that word, I think of two people so in love that they want to spend the rest of their lives together. They want to raise a family in a big house with a white picket fence and live happily ever after. Lets be real, statistics show that 40-50% of marriages will end in divorce. I don’t know about you, but those odds aren’t really in my favor. So when I look at it all there are just to many disadvantages to marriage. Getting married is such a hassle, why would anyone want to. You have to deal with wedding planners, flower arrangements, guest lists and etc. Theirs just to much to put into getting married your already stressing yourself out before you actually get into the marriage. Lets not forget about the things you have to give up. Such as, you aren’t able to take risks. The way I see it, life involves risks. Some that betters you off and some that bites you in the butt and set you back. From experience with me when I fall or get set back, I get up and take another risk and move on. I think taking risks are fine, as long as you’re the one who suffers from the setbacks. You can’t take those chances with another person’s life, health; money and future are in your hands. It would be a pretty selfish thing to do. To me marriage means your keeping the

best interest of two people in mind at all times. Yeah, it might keep you from going to jail or other stupid moves, but it might also hold you back from pulling the trigger on a decision that could better your life forever. I see marriage as giving up the luxury of living life; life is meant to be lived before we take the long indefinite trip toward the pearly gates. When you’re married, your always having to compromise. Its hard to accomplish what you want out of life when your spending half the time doing what she wants. You…...

Why I Want to Be a Teacher

...is something that I want to experience. All throughout high school, working with children had always been my dream. Through summer jobs, having younger cousins, and babysitting, I have been around children all of my life. I knew when I came to college that I wanted to do something that involved children. I started off majoring in Occupational Therapy my freshman year. I was planning on specializing in pediatrics, but then I realized I couldn’t see myself being an Occupational Therapist for the rest of my life. I now know that I want to be a teacher in the future. Working in a classroom setting with children and being able to teach them every day sounds so rewarding. I want to be able to make a difference in their lives. I want to be able to praise them when they do something good, and teach them when they do something wrong. I want to show them things and know that they learned something when they walk out of my classroom. I want to hang their accomplishments on the wall in the classroom and look at it when I walk in each day. I want the children to be able to feel comfortable enough with me to be able to participate and open up, but not too comfortable where they take advantage of me. I want to be a teacher because I know it is what I am going to love to do for the rest of my life. I will want to wake up every day and go to work to teach the children something new. I want to be able to put a smile on their face and love what I do for the rest of my life. I feel that being......

I Want You

...I WANT YOU FOR THE U.S. ARMY!” Now, what would you do if someone were to ask you this? Or if you seen it out in town on a poster? Would you pay any attention to it or just walk on by? Most people would honestly just walk on by, unless, there was something in that particular poster that had caught their attention. Recruiting ads have changed over the years, but this one was popular. This particular recruiting advertisement was an effective argument because of their slogan, Uncle Sam, his stare, his point, and the use of America’s colors; red, white, and blue. I would say this particular recruiting image was for men or boys. Back then it were only the men or boys who could actually join the army. So, this poster excluded any women and girls because they were not allowed to join. The main targeted audience for this was for the younger men and boys, and for more than one reason. The younger they are, the more apt they are to be healthier. The army wants them to be younger because they can move more quickly and act upon things faster than someone who is older. They also want the men who don’t already have a family started because then they won’t have that worry while out in battle and can focus better on what they need to do. Where is the place where you see most advertisements for things? Out in town, right? This image was more than likely posted out in town on public buildings as well, that is where most of a town’s population goes for many different reasons. Having it out......

How Should I Live

...How Should I Live? With each decision, we constantly ask ourselves, “Is this the right decision?” Sooner or later, we are all presented with the task to choose between what is right and what is easy. In one of my favorite novel series, Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore says to Harry, “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” (Rowling 1998, 219) This is true. Our decisions in life, our struggles, selections, and choices, are the bindings to our stories; ultimately holding together what makes us who we are, just as Dumbledore said. How should we live our lives? It is not a question that can be simply stated in a few words. One word out of the posed question is the main subject- “live”. What does it mean to truly live and what is the best way to do it? I think it is a mixture of many things. However, out of many lifestyles that involve moral behavior, I think the life of an altruist is an extremely honorable one, and it is one by which I want to model my life. In order to do good, one must know evil. So, what is evil? What makes good people do bad things? According to Philip Zimbardo, “evil consists in intentionally behaving in ways that harm, abuse, demean, dehumanize, or destroy innocent others -- or using one’s authority and systemic power to encourage or permit others to do so on your behalf” (Zimbardo 2007, 5). Throughout history, we have seen multiple examples of evil acts; from the Rwandan Genocide to Abu Ghraib to the......

Why I Want to Be a Nurse

...I remember it like it was yesterday. The squeaky white floors, and how I had to stand on my “tippy toes” to see through the glass. In that room on the other side of the glass was what felt like hundreds of babies, new babies that had only been in this world for a so short of a time. I knew I wanted to be one of the “angels” caring for them. My sister was a preemie, born 9 weeks early, so the family spent a lot of time in the hospital with her. In the following weeks and months, I witnessed nurses staying not only at this tiny infant's side, but the family's also as she was hooked up to yet another tube. These nurses went above their required duties and cared for my sister and family not only physically, but emotionally and mentally. The nurses, far more than any doctor, were our support system. I, at that young age, would ask them my questions about what was to happen, and with patience and knowledge, they answered me with such care. Being such an intimate witness to the struggle of life and death left me with a deep sense of human fragility. I realized that the human body is so very intricate and beautiful in its complex delicacy. Witnessing a nurse's holistic role for the patient embedded deeper in me that I had a calling to serve others in the medical field, specifically in the field of children. Ecclesiastes 3:1 states that every endeavor man can undertake has its own time and meaning. Looking back on my own life, I see various experiences and opportunities of growth......

Why I Want to Be a Teacher

...Professional football players all have in common? They are all dream careers commonly listed by elementary school students. When I was in fifth grade I remember coming home and informing my grandmother that when I grew up I was going to be a teacher. As many parents do she responded by asking me why, I enthusiastically responded “I want to be just like Mrs. Higginbotham and teach people words like nincompoop!” ​To this day I have not changed my mind. My reasons have matured from being astonished by vocabulary but my goal hasn’t. In hindsight I always liked to teach. I was the oldest sibling and turned our hallway into a classroom. When I was older I loved tutoring younger children. ​I was largely inspired by Mrs. Higginbotham. She taught me many things. She showed me learning could be fun. She taught me that no goal was unattainable. She created a lifelong interest in literature. As a teacher she tried to find something for everyone, even those students who already claimed they hated school. I wanted to be able to create the type of learning environment that she did for other children. As I grew I had other significant teachers who helped me cement the idea that I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. ​In high school I realized that all the teacher I considered truly good teachers had all the skills I wanted to learn. I wanted to be able to inspire students and work with them like many of my own educators had with me. The best teachers were good at...

I Want a Wife

...Essay) JUDY BRADY I Want a Wife (1971) Judy Brady’s essay became an instant classic when it appeared in 1971 in the premier issue of the feminist magazine Ms. As you read, analyze the definitions of “husband” and “wife” that Brady uses, and consider why this essay became so powerful in the 1970s. I belong to that classification of people known as wives. I am A Wife. And, not altogether incidentally, I am a mother. Not too long ago a male friend of mine appeared on the scene fresh from a recent divorce. He had one child, who is, of course, with his ex-wife. He is looking for another wife. As I thought about him while I was ironing one evening, it suddenly occurred to me that I, too, would like to have a wife. Why do I want a wife? I would like to go back to school so that I can become economically independent, support myself, and, if need be, support those dependent upon me. I want a wife who will work and send me to school. And while I am going to school I want a wife to take care of my children. I want a wife to keep track of the children’s doctor and dentist appointments. And to keep track of mine, too. I want a wife to make sure my children eat properly and are kept clean. I want a wife who will wash the children’s clothes and keep them mended. I want a wife who is a good nurturant attendant to my children, who arranges for their schooling, makes sure that they have an adequate social life with their peers, takes them to the park, the zoo, etc. I want a wife who......

Before I Die I Want to

...Before I die I want to... Before I die I want to be able to do many things that I want to do but I will only highlight a few that I really would like to be able to focus on. One thing that I want to be able to do before I die is to be able to live happy and relaxed for a long period of time. Another thing that I would want to be able to do before I die is to travel to a few different countries or even states for example in particular South Korea and maybe London. Something else that I would want to be able to accomplish before I die is to be at the top position possible at a job in the IT field or some computer related position. Lastly before I die I would like to be able to live life without regrets. The reasoning behind me wanting to be able to live a happy and relaxed life is because ever since I got into high school I don’t think have been living constantly happy life, and I have defiantly not been able to be relaxed because I picked up a job that I almost work every day and have lots of things I have to constantly worry about especially now that I’m in college, and my grades really matter to me now and hoping that I will be able to do well in my classes. Another reason that I would want to live happily is because living happy can help your life span so If I continue on living stressed out and worried about things every day I feel like it can affect my health in the long term, I feel like being able to live worry free would be such a good feeling. I really......

Why I Want to Teach

...of image they want to imprint on their students. Growing up I have had many teachers, some have left good and bad experiences in my life that has ultimately brought me to where I am today. “John Dewey was possibly the most influential educator of the twentieth century and probably the most controversial one”(Sadker &Zittleman 2010). I believe in being a progressive teacher in that I want to see my students at any skill level continue to improve. As a progressive teacher I will have 3 main goals: to inspire, grow and groom individuality into each student under my care in the classroom. I will a teacher whose image will never be forgotten and whose tenacity for education is never questioned. I believe that, if possible, every child no matter the age or ethnic background should be treated as an Individual in the classroom. In my own personal experiences being a student I have seen how even in a college setting the connection a teacher or professor can have with a student one on one is much more satisfying than a teacher who just teaches a class. Education, according to John Dewey, is the “participation of the individual in the social consciousness of the race” (Dewey, 1897). As such, education should take into account that the student is a social being. The process begins at birth with the child unconsciously gaining knowledge and gradually developing their knowledge to share and partake in society. Furthermore, in my educative journey with my students I want them to be......

...Education is the ignition for releasing understanding on a level that allows one to live a healthier, happy, more productive lifestyle. Of the many benefits that are attached to an education, I chose to continue my education so that my children will have a chance to fair well in tomorrow’s society. Setting the example is a start, but building a repertoire of tools that help in the development of my children and enhance our lifestyle is what my pursuit of a graduate degree is all about. It is undoubtedly that today's world it much more competitive than it was before. These days, even with a Bachelor's degree, most people still struggle to find a career that suits their interests. I believe Masters of Business Administration program is one that provides an opportunity for students to learn and to work hard in a setting that will grow qualities essential to success in the business. Given the fact that much of the success, if not all of the success, in modern business directly related to the leadership qualities of those in charge, I feel that I will be a good fit for the program at Southern Adventist University. My life has been shaped through experiences that have provided and afforded me the opportunity to develop and exercise leadership skills. My dream is to shift to a management position in my area. In order for me to do that, extensive business administration skills are needed. The skills that I will gain in this extensive MBA program will help make my dream a......

...higher prices went. Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich went off the deep end with a program guaranteeing mortgage loans for illegal aliens. The peak of insanity was when Alphonso Jackson, Housing and Urban Development Secretary actually went so far as to send this message to private sub-prime lenders: 'I am absolutely emphatic about winning back our share of the market that has slipped away to subprime lenders.' Look at the insanity. Government was talking about winning market share from the private sector on housing.Then of course we have Bush's Ownership Policy making renters feel like second class citizens. Government has no business promoting one form of housing over another. The Fed's role in this was slashing interest rates to 1 percent in an inane attempt to prevent deflation in the aftermath of the last recession. At the same time Greenspan openly endorsed ARMs right at the bottom of interest rate yields. Greenspan is a man who was wrong at every major turn. History will not treat him kindly. The role of consumer greed should be obvious. How long will it be before housing finally hits bottom? And where will prices decline the most? It took Japan 18 years to hit bottom. I suspect it will take at least 5 to 7 here and 5 is very optimistic. It could easily take 10 years or more. My best guess is 7 but it all depends on what the Fed does to fight it. Ironically enough, the more the Fed fights it the longer it will take. That is what happened in Japan and it will likely......

I Want a Wife

...Who Wouldn't Want a Wife Marriage is one of the basic institutions of society. It has been researched and analyzed for centuries. Most beliefs have developed and changed, but some have remained as the fundamental basis. They are called marriage stereotypes or tenets being declared as true without giving proper reasoning. . In her essay " I Want a Wife", Judy Brady uses a pathos to describe the duties of a wife in the 1970's while writing in a persona of a husband. She explains why she would like to have a wife. Marriage stereotypes are certain ideas which are held true about marriage and roles of a husband and a wife in it. In Genesis 2:18 God states that it is not good that man is to be alone and He makes a helper suitable, or comparable to him. (Bible) A woman takes on the role of a helper when she marries, along with cooking, cleaning, and meeting the families need, according to society. At the beginning of the essay, Brady mentions that she belongs to that classified group of wives, married and with a child. As Brady is ironing clothes she starts thinking "I want a wife" after she thinks of a friend that ended being divorced and was waiting to find a wife. The author then reflects on her life and starts to write in a persona of a husband narrating all the duties that a wife would perform, as if narrating her own personal life. Not only does she want a wife that works but also attends to children, along with keeping up with their doctors appointment and attend to......
