An event that greatly changed my life was when my dad bought his restaurant, which he currently owns now. Just let me tell you now it's not all glamorous and cool as everyone makes it. Its hard work! Not all restaurants are successful and especially at this time. Right now is the worst time to own a restaurant since food is just too expensive. My dad owning a restaurant changed my life because it was a totally new environment and everything I knew and did changed. The time I woke up, where I spend most of my days, the jobs my parents had, and the income they would earn. My dad used to be a construction man; he worked for himself. My mom was a stay at home mom who sometimes cleaned houses while we kids were at school. We were doing really well! They had enough money saved for us to live off of for the next 4yrs, our house was finally getting fixed and the repairs it's needed, and all the bills were caught up. Next thing you know all the money was gone. My dad bought a restaurant! He went behind all of our back. He spent every penny we had! The moment my mom found out she knew it wouldn’t work. Since, my dad had been in the restaurant business before but they sold it after my brother was born. Don’t get me wrong it was successful but it just tore our family apart, it was one of those never again events or at least we thought. She was so mad and disappointed, that moment she lost all the trust she had in my dad. The next day my parents went to work to their new job. While us kids had to wake up at 5:00 a.m! A time we never heard or dreamed about! It was some adjustment. Now after 3 ½ years of doing it I'm still not use to it. It's not easy. Anyway every morning we go to my aunt's house so she can take us to school and it works out since my sisters bus comes at 8:15 and my brother goes to school with my cousins at 7:45 and I have to be at my bus stop by 7:09. During my mom first day working the waitress from the previous owners told my mom the last owners were in debt and buying the restaurant was the biggest mistake they could have made. It was so slow and they barely got anybody who comes downtown to just eat. Plus, the competition of downtown Rockford is very tough. It was too late though. My dad had spent every penny into a business that was already a
I decided to write my paper on Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong). For those of you who do not or have not seen the TV series Boy Meets World, let me tell you a little bit about its history. The show portrays coming of age events and every-day life lessons of Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and Shawn Hunter. The show first began when these two best friends were in middle school, sixth grade to be exact. Shawn and Cory come from two different backgrounds. Shawn is more of the “bad guy” reputation, while Cory…
as I can remember. Coming into this course I did not even know that Them was a film. After learning that we were comparing two cultures, I felt very comfortable.
Our first exercise had us explore culture without the help of resources or material. My gut feeling about culture was summed up by comparing it to a color wheel. The endless amount of “mixed colors” I referred to was a good start, but this course has began teaching me exactly how cultures mix and modify themselves.
Culture and pop-culture…

Learning to Share the Gospel
When my wife and I were in graduate school in Washington state, a speaker challenged us to follow President Spencer W. Kimball’s admonition to be active member missionaries. During that talk I felt a strong impression to invite my good friend Garry Borders to hear the missionary discussions. As soon as the meeting ended, I rushed home to tell Mary Anne about my impressions, and together we prayed that Garry would accept our invitation…

A generation is a group of persons that share roughly the same age, location, and
life events during the developmental stages of their lives. For the first time ever, four generations
occupy today’s workplace; they consist of the Silent Generation, known as Traditionalists (1925
– 1945), Baby Boomers (19461964), Generation X (1965 – 1981), and Generation Y, or
Millennials, (1982 – 1999). People of each generation have different cultural values and have
experienced different world events that have shaped their views and behaviors…
research does not discuss in detail how mood, along with romantic relationship dissolution, impacts self-esteem. This is why we have proposed this study, as we believe that mood and romantic relationship dissolution are extremely pertinent concepts that greatly impact self-esteem, both deserving further study.
Several studies (Aron et al., 1995; Chung et al., 2002; Frazier & Cook, 1993; La Greca & Harrison, 2005; Mason et al., 2012) argue that positive romantic relationships provide a constructive aspect…
protection from the outside world, and they fill your life with all the beauty, sounds, and wildlife that the forest has to offer. This is the heart of Appalachia; this is its refuge and its greatest treasure. This is the atmosphere that grabs your heart and says I am home.
However on any given day you can travel to the top of one of these mountains and find what looks like a graveyard. The mountaintop that once provided lush forests, plant, and animal life but now is reduced to rubble. Acres and acres…
