its importance was never over emphasized. Though I haven't been in school long enough to emerge myself into the brutal competitive environment, I certainly did study the materials well to make my parents happy.
During the exam I was rather confident. The material wasn't that challenging so I quickly finished the exam. With nothing to do I started to look around: birds singing outside the window, people walking by the door, and the answers on the paper of my fellow classmate behind me. Though my action looked suspicious, I had no plan to cheat because even the concept of cheating was new to me. I was confident in my answers and had already finished the exam. I turned around simply to check

I have learned a lot about myself in the last twelve weeks. I discovered so much about my writing. I learned who I really am once I came out from behind the "Official Style" that I've clung to since junior high. I have to tell you, it was very difficult for me to let go. I felt lost and uncertain. But in the process I found myself, my style, and my voice. I learned to let myself come through in my writing. I have to admit, writing became a lot more fun and interesting.
When I looked back and read my first paper for this class, I laughed. I couldn't believe how trapped in the O.S. I was. I remember thinking as I wrote it that I was getting away from theme writing, but the only reasons I

After looking into the results of my personality tests, I found out many things that I did not know about myself, which would affect my future career choices greatly: I found out that I was even tempered, which would be a two sided blade for me in the future. I found out that I am very adaptable, which will aide me when tough changes occur; I found that I am confident enough to step up to any challenges yet I dislike pressures and deadlines; And last but not least, I am creative and logical, but never really inspiring and motivating.I am very even keeled normally, which means I rarely get too emotional. Here is an example of me being temperate: I was always a very good student in the

Every person have born, grow, do activities, married, have a child, become old and old following the time, and then die. It is a common life is everyone knows. We, however, have different ways to think of our life. Maya Angelo through her poem entitle “When I Think about Myself” has shared the voice of her people and result of the process of thinking or musing life. It is a very interesting poem because we need to read it twice or more to catch the real tone and story.
When the first you read the poem, you will not recognize the Maya’s mean and then be extremely curious to read it again carefully until you get the real story from the poem. The poem has contrasting word “laugh” with some

A common goal for many writers is to connect with their audience. In my previous essay for this class, my goal was to invite the reader into the magical world of Disney. Unfortunately, due to my lack of preparation, the invitation to the reader was lost. I also was unable to place myself into the viewpoint of the reader making me ineffective in connecting with the audience. For an essay to be effective in conveying a message to the reader it is imperative to always draft an organized outline and to put the author at the same point of view as the reader to avoid any confusion.
Organization is an ordered manner; where the author uses structure or a formulaic pattern to aid in the daunting

There are many subjects, experiences, and opinions that make us all different. For this essay I chose four ideas to write about that make me who I am; dreams, choices, identities, and stories. So here it goes…
Who am I? I am a person, just like everyone else. I have emotions, I breathe, and I live. Though there is something about each person that makes us unique. That something is our dreams; our dreams to do something great, our dreams to be something great, and our dreams to live a life that is great. Those dreams take us to new places. Also they make us meet new people. So what is my dream? Well I have many dreams.
A dream of mine is to become a concert pianist. Over the years of

The relationship between organizational culture and organizational structure is an important theme that is often overlooked. The two can be difficult to clearly distinguish from one another, and even more so to clearly define within an institution. Organizational structure works within an organizational culture, but it is not completely separate. The two are very much intertwined.
Organizational culture is more of a larger picture, a more general term that refers to a large umbrella of smaller topics and issues within an organization. The structure refers to the infrastructure, and the various methods and

Walt Whitman, a Great American Poet
Walt Whitman was among the most influential poets in American. His works boldly emphasize the worth of the individual. When I first began to read some of his poems in the packet "Song of Myself," by Walt Whitman, these are the lines that intrigued me: "I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume, you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you" (Whitman 1011). After I read these first lines, I realized that Whitman seemed to be concerned not simply with himself, but with all of humanity.
Whitman began "Song of Myself," with these confident lines. In these few words he

I feel that it is quite difficult for me to write about a religious experience, when I am not sure if I have had one. So the closest idea to a religious experience for me would have to be yoga. I have been going to yoga now for about four weeks and I just absolutely love it! I felt that I needed something to provide me with balance and to help reduce stress in my life. So far, I have received more than I had originally anticipated. For the past couple weeks, I have felt more at peace and in tune with myself than I ever had before. Even though the yoga class is for an hour, to me it feels like many hours or days have gone by because I have forgotten about my worries and troubles surrounding

I slowly became more self-aware, realizing who I really am as an individual, and that I am much more than what people perceive me to be. One of the methods I used to this was the Johari Method concept .I have also come to the realization that perception is one of the most important aspects of communication, and if used effectively the world would be a better place.

When it comes to my sociability, I remember, as a kid, I used to talk a lot in class to my friends; so much so, that my teachers said they would lower my conduct grade or send a note home to my mom, something to that degree.

I need to be honest with myself and reliant on my feelings, never hiding them. This way I will be at peace with myself. What do I need to accomplish my goals and finish my journeys to meet my destiny? Self-Reliance. Self-Reliance will be in all aspects of my life, work, education and pursuits. In my education, I will start learning from where I am. I will reach my goals. In pursuits, I will never imitate others. I will never rely on others because nothing outside myself could bring me happiness and joy. I should trust myself and believe in my own thoughts, instead of caring about what others do. I should live a happy life according to my free will. I should seek the peace and joy inside myself. And eventually, I'll be in Italy living my dream.

My most recent and fulfilling leadership position would be my eleventh and twelfth grade school years when I held the position of Drum Major for Purnell Swett High School’s Marching Rams.

As closing time rolled around I found myself doing couple of tasks, and to accomplish them I needed to be able to access the sink. I walked over to the sink to find an enormous bucket filled to the brim with water and chicken. This bucket needed to be carried to the cooler for the night, but whoever left it there had forgotten about it and it remained in my sink. Well, instead of calling for my co-worker to carry the chicken to the cooler, I decided to take it upon myself and help them out. Looking back in hindsight, I now ask myself, “What was I thinking?”

In the article, the author helps me to understand myself by providing a brief introduction of Sheldon’s typology theory. Sheldon proposes that there are three physical “morphs”: endomorph, mesomorph, and ectomorph and three corresponding temperamental “tonias”: viscerotonia, somatatonia, and cerebrotonia. Each of these components has different characteristics. No one falls into one category only. We possess all three

It was like trying to keep your house heated with a furnace thermostat placed to close to the window” (Yalom, 221).
