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…
never attend major universities in the south. When walking on sidewalks blacks were expected to step aside for whites and if a black would ever enter a white’s house they had to enter through the back door, never the front (Jeffrey 33). The everyday life of black was separated from whites. Everything front water fountains to buses were segregated in some way. It would take a brave person to challenge the system and King wanted to be that person that made everything right.
King attended Morehouse…
they were being racist to black people.
Evolution: how man became who he is today. The most famous theory of evolution is Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. The Darwinian Theory has made an incredible impact on our present day life, society, science, and beliefs. In 1924 states in the Bible belt made the teaching of the theory of evolution illegal because people in that period were very religious and they were scandalized and angry of Darwin’s theory, it was a shock. In July…
your life with the regret of knowing that they could have been told everything, but the choice was made not to.
I have a personal experience with this lesson learned. My mom died on January 18th 2011, I had just turned 15 the month before. Also my grandfather, my mom’s dad, had passed away the month before her on December 3rd 2010. I never got the chance to tell either of them what I wanted them to know, and now I regret not telling them. I will have to live with this regret my whole life too.…
Life sets out many pathways to decide your future. It can give you experiences and
certain experiences in your life can impact you a lot. I came to America from India when I was
five years old. This experience has impacted me the most because I live in a brand new
country which is not at all like my home, American culture has changed me and that coming to
America has taught me to appreciate what I have.
One of the biggest changes of living in America is the fact that I live in a whole new
country that is completely different…
Chuck Close is very deeply connected with my passions and cares for not only art but also my life itself. Chuck Close has taught me to never yield but always drive to pursue. Close’s perfection and dedication in technique of style takes me back to the early years of discovering a liking for Art. At my first touch to a paintbrush, I strived to become a comparable artist as he with an ability to paint a photo to its exactness and being able to put forth my all in every piece of work. Never taking “No”…
Life Event 1 (Independent):
Joining the US Army is an honor and away to gain oneself. Hundreds of men and women join the military everyday with one command goal in mind, to gain their independents as an adult. When I was turning twenty-one, I felled the need and desire to have my own house. Living under my mother roof, made me feel unease. At the time, I felt as if my life was not going anywhere. Within three weeks of the feeling useless, I joined the military. Life became wonderful. I had the…
Composition 2 (Engl. 2367, w17)
September 12, 2013
I can’t tell you the exact day, or what I was doing, or even what year it was, but I can tell you exactly how I felt when my best friend since the third grade told me that she was gay. She was so nervous about my reaction; terrified I would react horribly, be afraid or maybe even not want to be friends anymore. I will never understand what it is like to tell someone that you are gay; I will never have to anticipate…
The Things my Deceased Sister told me
First, I must tell you that I had a sister named Cindy. When we were young, people thought we were twins. She was 13 months older then me. About 23 years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer. They gave her 8 months to 5 years to live. She said she was going to prove them wrong and live longer. Well, she did exceed the 5 years by about 6 months. She passed away in October of 1995, at the age of 34. I still miss her and when I heard about a medium from Stroudsburg…

How Fight Club Changed My Life
Once, I was a young boy who believed everything I heard, yet I knew nothing. I
was impressionable and weak. Above all else, I was confused. I did not understand
myself, and I did not realize why I wasn’t happy. Everything always went wrong. I felt
my life slipping away into oblivion with no palpable meaning. My life was an endless
array of homework, band camp, theater, girls, and a myriad other things that were not
making me happy…
