Personal Statement HmmmWhat shall I tell you about me? You, the person who will decide my fate, my fate as to whether I would go to CU-Boulder, go live in Colorado, go snowboarding in the mountains, meet lots of interesting people, and have the most wonderful experienceI better make myself sound worthy. First off, I want you to know that I'm an unparalleled individual, whose outlook on life is of total optimism. Through out my 18 years, I've become freinds with people from all walks of life. I've learned to empathize with just about every one of them, gaining the greatest understanding in a variety of remarkable characters. One of my favorite, a homeless lady who's called Polly, tells the mo ...

Personal Statement "So, sweetheart, what would you like for Christmas," my dad asked while I was sitting down flipping through some catalogs one December afternoon. As I put the last of the catalogs down, I went into my room and thought about what I wanted. I never truly desired anything until that year. I was eleven. Within the past couple months in school, we had received new computers. While being introduced to Photoshop and the Internet simultaneously, I knew what I wanted out of my life. The way Photoshop manipulated pictures and backgrounds, and overlapped them with the transparency command, I knew that web designing was for me. Later on that evening as I scooped up the mashed potatoes ...

Personal Statement I used to laugh at my teachers in previous years. When I went to public school I would actually laugh at them. I thought it was so funny how they couldnt get our classes attention. It was almost like they showed for work because they had to, just to get paid. You could tell that they didnt want to be there as much as the students didnt want to. Students would miss class or not pay attention in class and it wouldnt matter. I know what that can do to a student first hand. I found myself not going to class or not paying attention because I knew that the teacher really didnt mind. After I came to Lutheran, with a rather large chip on my shoulder, I entered a new world of teach ...

- 60s Music Influence On Our Society - 1,930 words
60'S Music Influence On Our Society Sixties Music and How it Reflected the Changing Times Chris Montaigne Professor Shao Rhetoric II The 1960's in the United States was a decade marred by social unrest, civil rights injustice, and violence both home and abroad. These were some of the factors that lead to a cultural revolution. The revolution attempted to diverge the fabric of American society. Teenagers were living dangerously and breaking away from the ideals that their parents held. In the process they created their own society (Burns 1990). They were young and had the nerve to believe that they could change the world. Their leaders had lofty goals as well. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had d ...

- A Thinker - 681 words
A Thinker annon One of the oddest progression of life is probably when someone is growing up. All those memories of failures which you hope could be thrown into the garbage can like a piece of paper and all those memories of successes which you hope could be saved on a c omputer like a piece of hard disk turns into endless thoughts similar to that of a math problem which the equation contains the variable infinity. I am more of a thinker than accomplisher. Due to this problem it usually takes me longer to do my homework t han the other kids. I remember in elementary school my fifth grade teacher used to say, 'If you think while you write everything would be easier for you.' Such as for this ...

- Body Modification - 1,086 words
Body Modification Body modification and adornment is a universal culture. All civilizations have attempted to change their body in order to fulfill their cultural construct of beauty, religious and/or social obligations. Body adornment and modification is a very broad subject, ranging from ceremonial body paint to the amputation of appendages. In modern society many people today are looking more like tribal warriors of many African cultures. In fact many of these modifications actually do come from many ancient cultures. So why is body modification just now coming to the attention of the modern world? It is my belief that a greater amount of young adults are finding that imitating traditions ...

... y thing to keep happening, to keep things vital and alive. So if we stop to think about it, even if we start a composition, or building, or piece of music, or whatever we are doing, you might say, we are tuning in instead of starting, because it has taken us all our lives, and many other people's lives before us, to be part of a continuing thing, before we are able to continue through into this composition. So we really don't start it when we start the composition; we don't really begin then, we begin again and again, as Gertrude Stein says. We have to think of it as something continuous and something growing; something becoming, always becoming. Goff believed that the sense of surprise ...

- California Surf Culture - 1,973 words
California Surf Culture Joe Reid Joe Reid English 101 California Surf Culture The manufactured image of health and happiness that became synonymous with the California Lifestyle has over the years become more refined, molded into a specific state of existence that is, by definition, a contradiction placed at the ocean's edge. The exploitation of this natural condition has been traced from the innocent origins of early local surf industry into the contemporary realm of multi million dollar public offerings on Wall Street. The recreational sport of surfing is but one of several histories through which the process of co modification and exploitation becomes obvious. Stripped of its innocent beg ...

Expository Writing The relationship between language and image provides us with the means to seek the roots of our own ideas. In the essay, When We Dead Awaken: Writing as Re-Vision, written by Adrienne Rich, she uses varying images in her poetry to describe women and the voice open the window into her self-perception and how cultural ideologies change. John Berger writes in, Ways of Seeing that the relationship between the image and the person is an individual interpretation. Hunger as Ideology, by Susan Bordo, tells how the image is used to show cultural ideologies, especially for women. In art, literature, and in the media, images that are perceived visually or through the images produced ...

Football Personal Statement Describe and discuss a significant experience or achievement that has special meaning to you. The 1998 varsity football season was both a significant experience and achievement for me. It was so extraordinary that it defiantly has a special meaning to me. As a team we won North Coast Section (NCS) of California, Division III, and were ranked number one in the state, Division III. This immense reward was not simply given out to every team but instead we had to earn it. After it was all over and completed I could truthfully say that earning it was not easy. One week after we got out for summer last year we started preparing ourselves physically for the upcoming seas ...

... umber of jobs available, or the number of people available for a class of job; both by enforcing a higher wage rate. Of course unions can also be harmful to the workers. This is because anytime one group of workers is benefiting from the increased wages or other union benefits, another group is being hurt by it. For example, if the pilots union decides to raise his ticket prices, he would benefit with the profit, but the consumer is hurt by this transaction. Even other pilots are hurt by this raising of wages, because when wages are raised, more must be charged for the tickets, and as a result less people will fly. This will mean that fewer pilots are required, and some can be let go. Th ...

- The Way To Make The Truly Big Bucks Is On Wall Street Very Little Has Changed On Wall Street Since The Beginning, Everything - 1,140 words
The way to make the truly big bucks is on Wall Street. Very little has changed on Wall Street since the beginning, everything but a few laws. When those laws are interpreted the wrong way, or when someone breaks a law on Wall Street, the agency respo ible for busting them is the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). The primary mission of the SEC is to protect investors while maintaining the integrity of the securities market. They want to ensure that the market is fair for all investors, at all t es. How they plan to make the market as secure as it can be is another story- one that includes many specific laws that your average Joe probably doesnt know. Since the beginning of time, man has c ...
