I Don’t Know Who I Am In the movie Wanted directed by Timur Bekmambetov, a young man finds out his long lost father is an assassin. When his father is murdered, the son is recruited into his father's old organization and trained by a man named Sloan, actor Morgan Freeman, to follow in his dad's footsteps. The anxious, clumsy and abused office clerk Wesley Allan Gibson, actor James McAvoy, has a boring routine life: his obese boss humiliates him all the time and his girlfriend betrays him with his colleague and best friend. When he meets the attractive Fox, actress Angelina Jolie, Wesley is informed that his father was a professional killer that belonged to an ancient organization called Fraternity and killed by the skilled and powerful Cross, a hit-man that has betrayed the Fraternity. Wesley learns that his anxiety actually is a symptom of his hidden abilities and he joins the society under the command of Sloan. Trained by Fox, he changes his personality and attitude, being prepared to face the dangerous Cross and find out the shocking truth. James McAvoy plays the role of the young and mediocre office clerk. He is a five foot seven one hundred and sixty pound man of the age of thirty. He is of Scottish nationality and in the movie Wanted he has scruffy brown hair with no facial hair. Wesley Gibson was, for a lack of a better word, as average as they get.
James McAvoy’s character in Wanted, Wesley Gibson, is initially frail and practically everyone’s personal pushover even for his girlfriend and best friend. His overweight boss never stopped nagging about the billing reports and his apparent lack of initiative; his girlfriend was constantly complaining about the condition his apartment was in and was always telling him what to do. He suffered from chronic anxiety attacks and had to take prescribed medicine for it. Then after being confronted by Fox and taken under Sloan’s wing, he came out of his shell and he became the opposite of a pushover—an assassin. He no longer took no for an answer and became much stronger in his will to succeed and be the best of the best. He then finds out that his so-called anxiety attacks were an excess of adrenaline being pumped through his veins and ramping his heart rate up to an unheard of 400 beats per minute. After grasping his new lifestyle and everything that has changed he had to focus on killing the man that murdered his father, Cross. To do this, he had delve into Cross’s assassination history and study his every move in order to be successful. After grasping the full concept and idea that he was following in his father’s footsteps, Wesley knew he’d had only been giving half of his effort and time. He realized that he had to give it everything he had and to not give up; so he trained harder and learned faster and never rested till he thought he was ready. At this point he turned toward Sloan and demanded that he be given the assignment to kill Cross. Whenever Sloan rejected this demand once again, Wesley had had enough. He knew he was prepared and that he had trained well enough in order to fulfill his destiny. After yelling and arguing with Sloan, Sloan then decides to give him the mission that Wesley had been training for. And so Wesley knew he had to have a plan and a perfect plan at that in order to be successful in his duties. So instead of using his animal instincts and charging blindfolded toward his opponent, he sat down and studied everything about him and sought out a plan to take him down.

...this world. I loved, but sometimes despised him. His father, Mr Sawyer, was a strange man. Nobody could make out what he was doing in our part of the world at all. He was not a planter or a doctor or a lawyer or a banker. He didn't keep a store. He wasn't a schoolmaster or a government official. He wasn't — that was the point — a gentleman. We had several resident romantics who had fallen in love with the moon on the Caribees — they were all gentlemen and quite unlike Mr Sawyer who hadn't an 'h' in his composition. Besides, he detested the moon and everything else about the Caribbean and he didn't mind telling you so. He was agent for a small steamship line which in those days linked up Venezuela and Trinidad with the smaller islands, but he couldn't make much out of that. He must have a private income, people decided, but they never decided why he had chosen to settle in a place he didn't like and to marry a coloured woman. Though a decent, respectable, nicely educated coloured woman, mind you. Mrs Sawyer must have been very pretty once but, what with one thing and another, that was in days gone by. When Mr Sawyer was drunk — this often happened — he used to be very rude to her. She never answered him. 'Look at the nigger showing off,' he would say; and she would smile as if she knew she ought to see the joke but couldn't. 'You damned, long-eyed, gloomy half-caste, you don't smell right,' he would say; and she never answered, not even to whisper, 'You don't smell right......

I Love Research Paper

...If someone asks you what is love, how would you answer the question? In the past, I would simply say: "I don't know." I am not into such sentimental business. Naturally, expressing emotion is not my specialty and I tend to dodge it. My mom usually brings up the event in which she asked me the classic question of "who do you love more, mom or dad?" I, merely three years old, gave the astonishing answer: "I love myself more!" Although I don't really remember it, I know this answer could only come from me and I am proud of it. This is who I am, and I won't answer such sentimental, stupid question. Consequently, I am a cool person as I grow up. Despite of my lack of amiability, people generally admire me for my unique personality and sharp wit. I enjoyed it at first, but later I realized I am not really happy. Since I am not willing to share my thoughts with anyone, no one really understands me. There is no one I can truly talk to when I have trouble. I found I have lost the basic, common joy of being a human....

But they don’t allow me because they think I am old. b. What age do you think you will consider yourself as being old? Ans: (She smiled and looked at researcher calmly) I don’t know what age I think I will consider myself old. But when I feel it, I will know. May be I will say when I am 80 years old or more, then I will take myself to be old. Age is in the heart. c. What make(s) you feel you are getting old? Ans: What makes me feel I am getting old? (She paused for a while). I think when I can no longer feel anything or see the need to live again. I think I will say when I can’t do anything for myself, like clean my own back, then, I am really getting old. Until then, I am not that old. d. How do you feel when you are treated as being old? Ans: I don’t like to be treated as being old. I am not an old woman. When these children try to make feel like one, I tell them I am still current. (Touching her hair) She said, I still make my hair. I like to look good. So when I get treated like an old woman, I don’t like it. But they all treat me like one. My children feel that I am old and need to be here, in a nursing home. It is only one or two of the staff here who treat me the way I want. Others think and act as if I am old. No way. I am not old. 3. Aging experiences a. Do you...

I am very comfortable with the person I am today and don’t plan on change myself unless “I” want to. I am very cautious about the people I allow to get to know me. And when I truly care about someone you can tell. I may seem selfish but I love to do for others. Of course I have flaws like every once but I just except mines. Soccer: I have been playing soccer since I was five years old and it has always come very easy to me. In high school if you were to say, “ Mia Jackson, ya know the black girl, varsity soccer, since freshman year,” then people would know who you were talking about. Soccer is something that helps defines the person I am today. I never noticed how important soccer was to me until about two years ago, when I had torn my ACL which prevented me from participating in soccer for year. I remember holding back my tears as the doctor told me I could not play and had to get surgery, than on top of that recover time was close to a year. Over the summer this year I had to bust my ass to get back into shape because I felt I had a title to live up to. I would have to say I am now playing better than ever before out of my fourteen years of soccer. Most because I play every game like it’s my last and don’t take my talent for granted cause a simple injury can happen in a matter of seconds. High School: I am so happy I am out......

Self Reflection

...Self Assessment Topic: How I became who I am today Who I am today is much stronger than who I used to be. Who I am today is more independent than who I used to be and I am so proud of myself and very happy. The person I am today is influenced on different values and the different experiences that I have encountered while growing up to be a good role model, an elder sister and a good friend. Growing up as a child in my family was tough being the fact that I am the only girl with three younger brothers that look up to me so the influence from childhood was really tough and one of the greatest impact in who I am today. My relationships with my parent as a childhood was pretty normal, I look up to my dad while I was growing up because his hardworking and his the breadwinner of the family and from things he has told me while I was growing up was that he had to support his family at an early stage because he lost his father and he had to help out and he also had to drop out of school so his siblings good have a good education, that’s a huge sacrifice he made at an early stage and that makes me proud of him and that motivates me to want to be a better person and still molds me to who I am I today and who I would want to be in the future. My mum on the other hand taught me to be forgiven, to always look for the best in people and never think of people’s past but the bright side, and she also taught me to give people second chances because regardless of where they might have......

Who Am I?

...Who Am I As a Student? I feel like I’m not qualified enough to speak in the classroom, especially during SPS discussions. When I look at the rest of the class, I see the students who know almost everything and have something to say about. I might have something to talk about too, but I just let them talk, because I feel like they already know what I will say or they might have thought the same ideas. Then, I give up and don’t bother participating. After all, I probably look like a loser or a shy person, who I think I’m not; at least I don’t want to be. Who Am I? I think she is neither very aggressive nor very passive. What I hate is her being so selfish all the time. I am more aggressive to my friends than the members of my family. I am being aggressive sometimes when something I can’t stand happens, such as being arrogant, attempts to take control over me or despise me. I am passive when I don’t feel like I have something to tell. It usually happens when I don’t know the people around me beforehand. It is because of the feeling “I don’t count”. It takes time for me to get used to a place or a crowd. If I trust myself, I am not passive at all. Conclusion In order to have better grades and a better life, we should open up ourselves and give a chance to the others. No matter who we are and where we are, we should follow the voice, which is inside us and do whatever it says without following any rules or letting the restrictions limit ourselves. This is the only......

Self Concept

...sometimes we don’t have something to look for, because others have already dictated us where to go, what to do, and what to find. Then time comes that what we think that we want is just what others want for us. Fortunately, I’m finally free from such situation. I found it, thank God. Some people say that I’m one of an influential person because I look reliable and dependable. I must say, that kind of people look at me superficially, because the thing is that I am reliant and dependent. Not in a way that when I do this and that, I need someone to back me up. I am dependent about decisions, I don’t know how to answer yes and no, and what I always know is I don’t know. I’m uncertain of some things that I find myself useless when someone asks me something. When someone needs my help, sometimes I want to yell at him or her because most of the time, I also need a help and I just can’t call for one because they think I already can, that I am great enough. I have a problem in expressing my emotions. I once made a poem about this part of me entitled, The Mask. Obviously, there was an invisible mask on my face stopping me from looking sad, angry, happy, etc. I think the reason is that before, I used to look indifferent just to cover up my vulnerability, but was I wrong. It grew to become a talent. I thought I’d grow up looking strong and invincible because of this talent. It became a pain in the chest – becoming heavy and full of grudges and bitterness because I don’t express it.......

...Because I can't see anything to be unhappy about my life. I don't seek more for happiness. I had developed the capacitiy to enjoy less. I have very few but precious people in my life. I most likely to appear as a timid person but deep inside me, I'm happy. My life is not perfect. I am not perfect. But happiness is about the acceptance of what you already have. If the simple things in life don't put a smile on my face then I will never be truly happy. First thing's first. Who am I? I'd say I'm a typical teenage girl who have just enough craps that I decided to smile and just be happy. I know myself better than anyone else. I can go on a day without talking to anyone. Just me, myself, and I. Not talking to anyone is schematic. I keep things for myself and no one can destroy my reputation for I don't talk. If people call me, I'd turn to them and smile even if it against me. It would be a shame if I don't react on people addressing me but more likely I wouldn't care that much. I don't like being in the spotlight though I accept merits. I like putting my profile low. I don't dream of becoming anything or anyone else other than being me. I can be fake at most times making it look like I have a high self-esteem even if I don't. I have a very selfish sense of myself and that's just me. I am happy that way. My social self depends on who I am. I am a daughter following my parents' creed. I am a sister to inspire my siblings. I am a student studying hard to learn and graduate on...

I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt." 11 But Moses said to God, "Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?" 12 And God said, "I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain." 13 Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' Then what shall I tell them?" 14 God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.' " Hmm. I have to be honest. As I rested my spirit on these verses, the lord asked me this question “do you know who I am?” I said “yes lord” I have to be honest, at that point nothing came to my spirit. this has been one of those weeks where I've had a hard time resting my spirit to hear from the Lord.... but I am pretty sure I know who my lord is...

Conflict Management

...this class I have learned to understand conflict a little bit better and understand how I see myself and how others see me, my self assessment and peer assessment is a little bit different. This means people see me different than I see myself. I see myself as a competitive person I don’t like people trying to tell me what to do and I hate making mistakes. If somebody tells me I can’t do something is like they are challenging me to do it and I have to prove them wrong. I have learned that it is important to learn to meet half way it shouldn’t always be about what I want. It is very important to learn to separate the people from the problem, I think that’s where a lot of people mistake, I have done it where I am having problems at work and I take It personal. After taking this class I have learned how to understand people better and understand that one thing shouldn’t have anything to do with the other. From myself and peer assessments it seems like my style is control. I am a controlling person, I blame it on my parents I am the youngest in my family and I always got what I wanted no matter what.

...Through out the semester of the course I have learned a lot of information about my self. Some of them were things I already knew but a lot of them were things I didn’t know. Over the course of the semester I took a number of personal profiling tests and they really helped me to discover some of the traits I have that I did not know I had before. By taking this class it also made me think about my values and skills. This class also helped me to consider what majors I could pick for the rest of my college career. One of the personal profiling tests I took was call the Choices Interest Profiler. The Choices Interest Profiler is a program that helps people discover their personal interest and it also gives you some possible occupation ideas that would match with you interests. My results of the Choices Interest Profiler were artistic, investigative, and social. The occupations the Choices Interest Profiler gave me were anthropologist and sociologist. I do not think my results were very accurate because I do not think I am an artistic or a social person. I think the investigative part was right because I like doing math and solving things so I think that would be under the category of investigative. The occupations the Choices Interest Profiler gave me don’t really interest me so I do not think the program did an accurate job of that either. I think the results you get from the Interest Profiler depend on a lot of things. I think the reason my results did not accurately reflect...
