A Job vs. A Career: The Good and the Bad There is and always will be the difference between a job and a career depending on how much you try and enjoy the experience. A job is where you go just to make extra money, you have it because you do not have necessary skills for other positions, and you do not enjoy that much. A career is somewhere you enjoy going every day, a place you trained for and studied for to get in the position, and just an overall good experience. My experiences have been a mixture of all of both options. I can look back and honestly not complain at any choices I made in the past. My first job was as a counselor in training at a Boy Scout summer camp. It was an unpaid position, but it let me learn many skills I would need. The following summer, I went back as a kitchen staff member because I liked it so much, and it was a good time because I met so many new people which are still friends, but the downfall was that I had a set schedule every single day which included, no breaks or personal time. I would not recommend anybody to the camp in the position I held, but currently the camp is closed until further notice so I cannot either way. My second job was at a local, in town, summer camp for 5 days a week only 4 hours a day. It was enjoyable due to the fact that everybody that worked was from the same school or town. Also, it was fun because I was able to enjoy being outside all the time having fun and enjoying being a kid again. I would recommend the job to anyone looking for a part-time seasonal summer job due to the excellent way the camp instructors and managers were, and that it is very easy to get noticed. The next job that I had, was horrible, not going to lie. I worked for the company for only about a week and a half due to the staff, the techniques, and the bad keeping of financial books. I thought it was an actual job than found out; it was a scam group that made kids become door-to-door salesmen and women. You were promised a certain amount to be paid, but then was paid at least $150 less. It was a horrible experience even for the brief time I was there. My current job, which I could see ending up as a career for a few years now is my personal favorite so far. It is teaching me real life skills…

growing up,’ says Jerry Kramer, a prominent director of music videos, ‘you like rock and roll for one reason: Because your parents don’t’ (“What entertainers are doing to your kids,” U.S. News & World Report, October 28, 1985, page 47)”. This is the opinion of Jerry Kramer on the philosophy of Rock & Roll specifically when it first started in 1950’s. The actual phrase ‘Rock and Roll’ emerged as code words for sexual intercourse in blue songs. In 1922, the words rock and roll appeared on a record for…
conflict and political agendas. As noted by the author in chpt. 5, neither one of the propaganda illustrations for abolitionists or proslavery southerners were forthright. They both had their shortcomings and were skewed to sway people to their own opinions. In figure 5.6, an illustration drawn by George Cruikshank, a man who never visited America but was told of Scipio’s story, drew his rendition of these evets. In this illustration we see many contrasting subjects. First off we see the slave Scipio…

In my honest opinion the whole protest was incredible. I never knew about the school or the protest until we learned about it in class. They had the right to protest for a president who was deaf and knew sign to communicate with the students and participate in events with the school. I was very shocked on how violent it got and how quickly it escalated. It was pretty powerful for me that Congress even got involve with the whole situation. I never excepted…

The First Job Job
The position I coveted was highly sought after. Every girl who was born and raised in Oregon has, at some point, dreamed of working behind that shiny red counter at Tasty Freez. There is just something enchanting about the joint; from the vintage vibe (undoubtedly because not the building nor the menu has been renovated since 1963), and the thrill of being waited on by a pretty young thing (as all of the servers are young, energetic females with high ponytails and infamous bright…
cooperate with the group that is committing the torture acts. No one deserves to have these lasting effects placed upon them against their will.
Seeing pictures and videos from the media and news have been one of the main factors that have shaped my opinion about the use and acts of torture. Such acts of torture being exposed have made a negative impact on society. Seeing disturbing pictures from the media and news made me feel sorry for the prisoners being tortured, even if they had committed crimes…

Opinion Paper #2
Should gun manufactures be held responsible in deaths that are caused by their products?
Gun manufactures should certainly not be held responsible for any crimes committed using their product for many reasons. These manufactures do not encourage, nor help commit these crimes that individuals decide to commit. For someone to say that gun manufactures should be held responsible for the deaths committed by their product is non-sense. People make their own decisions…
