Born as I was into the immediate post-war generation, my thinking on science parallels in many ways the generation as a whole. We came along in the aftermath of the first scientific war – fought between countries with, in many ways, highly-developed technologies, which served to both fuel and end the conflict (Brehm, Kassin, & Fein, 1999, cited in Schneider, Grunman & Coutts, 2005). But then came the first inklings that there was both more and less to science than shiny new machines, even killing machines. The social experiments of Milgram (1965) and the cold behaviorism of Skinner (Operant Conditioning, 2007) surfaced into the popular consciousness, andVIEW DOCUMENT

There are about a thousand "How To" books on becoming a mature individual and none of them compare to personalexperience. Maturity is not dependent on age, but the over ambiance of life and how it is lived. To be a mature individual is not something that is achieved quickly. It takes time to learn and live the various levels of maturity. Maturity is often obtained in adult hood, but in today's world it is hard to find a mature person under the age of 40. To be defined as mature, he or she must not only be wiseVIEW DOCUMENT

Have you ever had a moment in time that seems like minutes or hours even though it was only a few seconds? Have you ever seen everything before you play out in slow motion, where you are aware of everything around you, yet not knowing what was going on? I have, and as I look back on it, I feel very blessed and protected. On March 21, 1987, I decided to take a little swim in our swimming pool and almost drowned.
On that fateful day in March, I was a couple months shy of my third birthday. My family and I lived in New Mexico at the time and were renting a house with an outdoor in-ground pool. The day was beautiful. I was outsideVIEW DOCUMENT

A secret agent. A professional football player. A fire fighter. These would have been my responses when asked that inevitable question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Family, Media and Peers are said to have influenced my views concerning the role I am to play society. All of these factors had one thing in common. They all were influencing me to behave according to my gender. Everything from the clothes I wore to the toys I played with contributed to this. Even now as a young adult my dreams and aspirations are built around the gender roles that were placed on me.

Unfold your own myth.” This quote ( from Essential Rumi by the poet and theologian, Rumi) is perhaps one of my favorite inspirational quotes. To me, it’s telling me that rather than read and hear and learn about what other people do and what other people can accomplish, that I should accomplish something myself. I should put the pen to paper and write my place out in history. Everyone has the potential to craft their own tale. But I want to do more than that. I want my story to be remembered throughout history. I want to do something important and meaningful with my life. With the right start I know that I, like everyoneVIEW DOCUMENT

From the title to the last sentence, Campbell expresses literary devices, natural languages, and involves her personal life into the story making it more than a teenage tale.

Despite their differences, each English Romantic writer’s personalexperience functioned as a muse for their art at some point, resulting in works that describe observations they made, recall childhood moments, include other writers as either subject or addressee, detail moments of personal discovery and express an appreciation for their surroundings.
In their writing English Romantic authors included observations they made about the world around them. Both of William Blake’s contrasting poems titled “Holy Thursday” reflect his observations of the tradition of poor children marching from charity schools to St. Paul’s Cathedral on Ascension Day.

There were three doctors and two nurses holding tools around me with plastic gloves, white clothing, and a mask covering the mouth and nose. I lied down on the operation bed. The operation started with a few injections on my left hand. After that I couldn't feel any pain on my hand. It was not that my hand is paralyzed, it was that I did not know they are operating my hand or not. I dared not to move my hand to check if I can move my hand or not. I was half asleep through out the operation because it didn't hurt, I couldn't even feel a mosquito bite. It ended in about 30 minutes when I was thinking it is just the start.Because of this operation, I didn't get to play sport for 1 month. If I did play sport, it would swell really badly and would cause great pain. This important experience taught me things are not really what you thought it is.VIEW DOCUMENT

This was one of the hardest plane rides I have ever had to experience. When we arrived to my mom's hometown, Liverpool, an array of sorrow and sadness filled the air. On the other hand, there was also a huge feeling of love. I felt a deep connection with every one of my family members. We were all together, and nowhere else would we rather have been at that time.

I fleetingly recall being in fourth grade and my teacher, Mr. Pugh, was instructing us how to tell time. The feeling of trying to overcome this hurdle to recognize the “big hand” is for the minutes and the “little hand” correlates with the hours, was such a great feat for a fourth grader. At the time, that felt like such an accomplishment yet there would be many more and greater to come. According to Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences in his essay “A Rounded Version: Theory of Multiple Intelligences,” he contends that we have more intelligence than what a test could prove because we all each excel in different areas of life (Gardner and Walters 521).

Born into a world of contradictory and opposing forces of control, authority, and traditional obligations, a young person does not have the means to make judgments but is swept along on the tide of what others say must be done. If one's heart or conscience cries out for a different course, lack of experience and of developed judgment can be fatal. Role models are required who can model the skills of weighing the pros and cons, of balancing the heart and the head, of inquiring and seeking out knowledge before a final decision is made.

'My passion and great enjoyment for architecture, and the reason the older I get the more I enjoy it, is because I believe we - architects - can affect the quality of life of the people.' – Richard Rogers
Since the beginning of mankind, architecture was present in human’s life. Building first evolved out of the dynamics between needs (shelter, security, and worship) and means (available building materials and attendant skills). As the cultures developed, human’s knowledge developed and they considered architecture as a craft, which was later found to be a highly respectable version of craft.
Architectural works are often identified as a cultural symbol and as a work of artVIEW DOCUMENT
