Regret & Loving Til’ it Hurts In Johnny Cash’s song Hurt there are many themes but two that can relate to my life are regret and “loving til’ it hurts”. Everybody has had times of regret in their life whether they would want to admit it or not. Regrets can be good depending on the situation but the regret that I will be talking about is a bad one to me. My regret was one that happened in high school. I did not apply myself through most of my high school career. Even though I made good grades I could have applied myself harder to the work. I never made under a 3.0 GPA in my life, but in order to get to my dream school at The University of Arkansas I needed better grades. I just did all the little things to get by in high school seeing as it was ok. In reality I should’ve been making 3.5 GPA’s throughout my career to get where I want to be. This regret has haunted me ever since I had to make the decision to attend The University of Central Arkansas. UCA is not a bad school but U of A is just my dream school. I plan to work hard this school year and next school year so that I may be able transfer to Fayetteville after I earn my basics. I’m striving for a 4.0 in my college career and I will get it. I didn’t come to college to party all the time but I did come to handle business then party later. In high school I procrastinated on almost every assignment, and I know that will not work for me in college unless I plan on staying up late at night. Everybody has once been in love before with a special someone who they will most likely always care about and still love. For me it happened in high school and it seemed like the best time of my life. It was my first time being in love so I didn’t know how to act. I was always happy because of this person and for a minute shut everybody else out. When push came to shove and we broke up I didn’t know what to…
Reflections based on “Romance with Regret”
1.) This compares to the way I’ve grown up to think of sex very differently, as a male, our society say’s it’s cool to have as much sex with as many girls as possible, it’s one of the first things your friends talk about to you but regardless it isn’t cool at all. (Girls are labeled differently for having sex with lots of different men with hurtful words, you get the idea) Why isn’t this cool? Your virginity is supposed to be a prize that’s “kept and…
Love was the most important thing in our life. Love could make our lives become wonderful because it could make me get closer to others, make us have goals to achieve and make our lives full of moving.
First, love could make us get closer. In the beginning I came to the US, I was very lonely because I did not speak English pretty well, I had no friends and I did not much about the US. I felt like I was separated from my classmates because they had been good friends…
Love is the world’s greatest mystery. It is a feeling that holds the most happiness and the most extreme sadness or anger. “Somewhere I have never travelled” by e. E. Cummings and “Psalm 183” by Joseph Zitt show love in their individual way, ways we can all connect to. BY comparing and contrasting these two poems, we recognize that many interpretations of love exist. Moreover, it is clear that love can hold various definitions
These poets effectively use imagery as an important instrument to depict…
“Emancipation?! Why do you want emancipation?” “You won’t let me drop out of school to start a business with Sam!” “You want emancipation? You want to be on your own? You want to ruin your educational career by starting a willy-nilly business with Sam? You’ll regret doing that. Be my guest, son. But don’t expect anything from me.” Raena (his mom) slams the door and stomps straight up to her room. She grabs the biggest suitcase she has and piles anything she can fit. She hobbles down the stairs; suitcase in hand…

A Bittersweet Regret
I woke up Tuesday morning excited for the day I was going to spend with my family but I never knew we would spend it weeping over the memories of my sweet cousin, Courtney.
I went along getting ready for my cousins party, or trying to at least. I still couldn't seem to shake the feeling that she wasn't okay. I could overhear my parents talking in the kitchen when they were interrupted by a phone call from my…
Webster's Dictionary defines love as, "A strong feeling of attraction resulting from sexual desire, enthusiasm, or fondness." But to me, love is not just a feeling, it is the way that you treat the ones you care for. Everyone should treat loved ones so considerately through their actions, that they will know that they are loved and cared for. Love in my eyes, is making that sacrifice for someone, knowing that you might regret it sooner or later. Love is how you make another…
Many married couples seem to get stuck in a situation of helplessness and fear for years especially when they feel the person they love is no longer reachable. Each person in the relationship can have their own posture, set of gestures, and even hairstyles, as well as a distinct way of dressing and talking when their personality begins to change. Most of the time the changes is sudden and takes only seconds. When the bad behavior shows signs of becoming a pattern, typically most of us would begin…
