Always make the best of things Having family living in different states has always made me excited to go visit them. Traveling is one of my favorite things to do but It can be hard waiting on someone else to go with you. In 2019 I planned a trip to visit a family member living in Orlando. I had never been to Disney World or Universal before and I was so excited to finally have that chance. Until I got the text that my family member planned a trip the same exact week I would be there and yes they knew the dates I would be there way in advance. Obviously, I was terribly upset, but I always look on the positive side of things. I was going to Disney world and Universal!! I decided rather than cancel this amazing trip I had planned I would go anyways. Besides, it was my birthday, I was going to make a dream come true of swimming with the dolphins on my actual birthday, so what if I was alone. My family members loss then.
To Mr. Trump, It has been a remarkably interesting and difficult last four years. I am addressing you as Mr., rather than President, for the simple fact I cannot in good conscience recognize you as our or my president. As someone who is also Caucasian you may feel I should understand you and your views better than anyone else. This reasoning, based solely on color of skin, is part of why I cannot recognize you as my president. The color of our skin does not define us and neither does our race. I was raised to believe we are all equal and to never allow any kind of difference, race, gender, sexuality, disability etc. to ever stand in my way of engaging with another person. You may have been raised to believe differently; however, in my understanding of your upbringing this is not exactly how you became to be who you are.
Introduction We all evolve as we learn and grow over the years and for me it is something I welcome. I am at a point in my life where I am really finding myself again. I am rediscovering what makes me happy and that is writing. I am learning there is more to writing than what I grew up believing or maybe it is what I was taught to think. This article is about how I began writing when I was young. What I am learning about writing and how I am evolving into more than an author.
My passion for traveling. Traveling has been a passion since I was a little kid. I have always wanted to go see everywhere and do everything this world has to offer. There are so many incredible countries and cities in this world. I was determined to see them all.
I never wanted my Doctorate degree. Growing up I was never that person who said they wanted to go for their PhD. It was engrained in me that I would go for my Bachelors, that I had no choice in. But I never wanted to go beyond undergrad school; I was always that person who said I am done with school after my Bachelors. I had gone straight to undergrad after HS and it was exhausting. I really thought I would be able to use my degree and start my career but that turned out to not be the case. It was not that I had a degree I could not use but that no one would give me the chance to gain experience. I wanted my career so badly I decided to go back for my master’s to hopefully gain some notice and break into my field. If you can’t do go back to school.
Starting my Doctorate program. I got accepted into my program in the summer of 2017 and was so terrified I put it off until January 2018. I was still nervous to start when the day came but I was determined. It was not an easy start though. My school started us out with an intro class and a regular full credit class. I had the best professors, but it was a time to learn and get used to the program. I needed to learn to write at that level and the classes were only seven weeks long; things moved fast. If you are not disciplined and on top of things you can get left behind or lost very easily. I set reminders for myself of when I would complete assignments and really stuck to it. Having that discipline was a true-life saver in this program. I ended up with an A in one class and 89.5 not rounded up but a B+ in the second. I was not happy with the B+ but it ended up being one of only two that I received in the entire program.
