Who Am I?

My name is xxxxxxxxx and I am a woman originally born in the city of xxxxxx, xxxxx. I came to the United States at age five and I recently became xxx years old on my birthday, this past xxxx x, xxxx. As a woman of Hispanic origin, I am very rich in Latin and Central American Indian culture. I grew up with my mom and aunts speaking a derivative of Pig Latin. I have a Spanish style of cooking and mostly all my plates are xxxxxx dishes. I may have grown up in the states all my life, but I’m almost 100% rooted in Spanish customs.
As a person, I identify myself as a child of God. Spiritually, I am always seeking knowledge and wisdom since I believe it comes from God. My faith is deeply rooted in my confession, that I am a spirit who will one day return to my maker. Holding such a belief has its advantages. For example, I generally do not abide by society’s norm of what I should be, or my role in life. I also believe that if I’m still here, there’s work to be done. I love to explore Biblical concepts and beliefs.
As a mother I am an attentive soul. I’m always looking out for my children and their personal interest. I like to give them their space, but yet hold them accountable. I tend to be conservative with my children and do not try to push them beyond their limits. To me, being who we are and doing what we do, just as we choose whether to build a relationship with God, is a very personal matter. While most people do not like my parenting style, I think it’s worked pretty well so far. My xxxx year old daughter, xxxx, is attending her first year of college at xxxxxxx. I’m very proud to say that she’s there because she wants to be. In all honesty however, I do have to admit that I use reverse psychology quite frequently because it works very well for me.
As a mate, I am a hard worker and supporter of peace and harmony. I think that relationships...

Dave Matthews Band

...The Dave Matthews Band When I think of The Dave Matthews Band, I also think of their jazzy pop rock music that has helped them become a musical sensation. The band consists of jazz and classical musicians and of course, Dave Matthews. Their music and songs are very unique and have not been heard before the band came about. They have touched millions of people’s hearts, especially mine. The fact that they sing about real situations and real issues that are going on the world today is what makes them my favorite band. Whether I am happy, sad, or mad, The Dave Matthews Band’s album “Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King” always lifts my spirits and puts me in a better mood; their songs are inspirational. One of the songs that touch me the most is called “Funny the Way It Is”. This song is about the good and bad things going on in the world. The point being made is that even though many wonderful things are happening, bad things are occurring at the exact same time. “Funny the way it is, if you think about it/ One kid walks 10 miles to school, another's dropping out/ Funny the way it is, not right or wrong/ On a soldier's last breath, his baby's being born/ Funny the way it is, not right or wrong/ Somebody's broken heart become your favorite song/ Funny the way it is, if you think about it/ One kid walks 10 miles to school, another's dropping out” Not only does it discuss the fine times and poor times in life, but also how people take the privileges they have for granted.

But with this topic, I am here to talk about my life specifically on how I made it up to here now. Ladies and gentlemen, I am Annalyn Alvarez. Good afternoon! We do have different lifestyle, for the primary reasons that we came from different families and different places, but one thing is for sure, we all have our dreams and plans with our life. I came from a simple family in Calatagan Batangas. I attended a public elementary school and with the help of scholarship, I attended a private sectarian high school. Living becomes so much tougher during those high school days because of financial problem but still I studied very hard during my three years in high school and became on top. Senior year came and with the help of my sister’s husband it became less stressful with us, though it became that way, I felt that I am flopping in my academic subjects and didn’t concentrate well.

...September 2015 Why am I here? In personal growth 120 I want to learn about all the resources that are available to me and how to use them. So far I have the financial aid available to me. I also applied for the EOPS and CARE program. I’ve learned that there are many clubs that I can join. Emotionally I would like to be as excited and motivated as I am now. I hope it doesn’t fade away. I am doing this for myself but I would like to make those who love me proud. I want to keep going and excited in every class regardless of all the obstacles I know might come ahead. There is no easy road and if it seems easy that means you are on the wrong one. Academically I would like myself to be in a “B” average since I am looking to transfer to SDSU. Push myself to earn above average grades to prove to myself I can do this. I know that if I give myself enough time to study I can do this. Physically I would like to be able to control my stress levels because it often leads to migraines. I might work on weight control as well since all be doing lots of exercise by climbing so many stairs and walking long distances. Spiritually I would like to be more involved in my church since I will have much to give thanks for. I am Catholic. Giving thanks to God is one way to help me count my blessings.

Hera - Zeus

...Hesiod. I chose to use myths that depict Zeus cheating on Hera and one where he goes out of his way to rape other women. I avoided using Zeus’ triumphant battles because without knowing mythology, Zeus’ role as a powerful warrior using his lightning bolts overshadows his moral failings as a husband. I want to know am I not good enough for you Zeus, king of Olympus? Looking other places to satisfy your needs, but then you come back to me? If I wasn’t queen of Olympus I wouldn’t be with your sorry self. What are my flaws? What is wrong with me that you won’t be faithful? I give you all my love and affection, but you keep looking elsewhere. Why do I deserve this? What did I do to you? I loved you and took care of your children, Hebe, Eileithyia, and Ares. You egotistical bastard! You ran around sleeping with other women. Zeus you dumb bastard, you slept with Metis who was prophesized to give birth to a child even more powerful than you! After you slept with her, you ate her, but you still gave birth to the baby , adding a child that is not mine to the list of things you have messed up on. Don’t expect me to take care of her like she is my own baby because I won’t, you stupid bastard. How dare you cheat on me! How could you be such a bad husband? You disrespect me so much that you even go out of your way to sleep with people other than me? I was wondering why our love life is abysmal, now I know why!

Of Cannibals

...Leonardo, nephew of Sergio, orphan, secretly in love with Adriana lives with the Lombardi’s, born in 1749 ( 25 years old) . Chapter 1. Here’s the story of Miss Lombardi… In San Pietro di Castello, Venice lived a small family, the Lombardi’s. Adriana was the eldest daughter of Rosalie and Sergio. She was known with her magnificent beauty, her amazing dark hair that attracted anyone who passed by her. Her eyes were two shining pearls that made any man melt. Her mouth, her tiny red lips and wonderful teeth made everyone call her smile ‘the silver smile.’ Her skin was fair and soft with not a single imperfection. When she walked, people could swear that she’s an angel; her steps were too small to be noticed. Sergio’s daughter was the symbol of perfection. She lived with her parents, a younger sister Elenore, and her cousin Leonardo, who was raised by the Lombardi’s.

Why/why not? Were you surprised by your results? Why/why not? I was slightly surprised by my results. I try to stay as unbiased as possible when discussing any religious group-so the very central scores for Christianity and Hinduism were not that surprising. I was very surprised that I gave Judaism a higher positive regard over any other religion-though I was raised in a secular home, my parents came from a Christian background. The negative regard for Islam also surprised me, but I suppose media bias and constant negative portrayals have seeped into my perception.

Why Are You Here

...Why Are You Here? After I graduated high school I always knew I wanted to pursue a higher education but I never knew where or for what. So I took some time off about an 8-½ year hiatus from academics and joined the Army. I traveled the world seen amazing things and met a lot of amazing people whom I now consider my extended family. When my contract was up with the Army I decided to go back to college. I didn’t know in what or what for but I knew I wanted to go. So I had some thinking to do as in where I wanted to attend. Ocean County College became the number one choice for three deciding factors: location, class size and flexibility. I am a native of Toms River and I am very familiar with the area so when I decided to go back to school location was a major deciding factor. First being from the area I am well aware of all traffic patterns within the surrounding area, which is a plus, and I don’t have to adjust to new traffic patterns in unfamiliar territory. Second parking at OCC’s main campus is not the best but it is not bad either. They have ample areas to park and there is not a shortage in parking spots which would usually be a problem if I was attending a University or State College in a heavy populated city for example Seton Hall or NYU just to name a few. Lastly I only live 10 minutes from campus a very short drive, which make it very convenient if I’m rushing around town and have a study group or class within a certain time while I am out trying to accomplish......

Rotc

...What Rotc Can Do to Help in the Peace and Development Efforts SPEECH MANUSCRIPT OF C/CPT AMADEUZ VINCENT JOHN R CELESTIAL FOR THE 2010 REGIONAL ROTC SPEECH CONTEST Theme: “ROTC: How can it help in peace and development effort?” Ladies and Gentlemen good afternoon. I am not here to brag about what our government, what any administration or what our Armed Forces has done, so far, to achieve peace and development in the country. I would not throw you any unnecessary info nor will I be presenting to you thorough analysis of data based on comprehensive research. But, instead, I’m simply gonna tell you how ROTC has changed my views and how these views, in my own personal opinion, can help in our search for an ultimate peace and a satisfactory socioeconomic development status. The question at hand is “How can ROTC help in the peace and development efforts,” but, should we not be asking WHAT? What we, the youth, whether we be cadets or just ordinary students, can do to contribute to this national undertaking. From my learning's as a cadet... let me suggest three Steps: First BE AWARE. Second BELIEVE. And Third ACT. From here we can derive our roles as the future leaders of this nation. It might be a cliche, but let me say again that WE ARE THE HOPE OF THE MOTHERLAND. In our hands lies the future of our country. It is for this reason that institutions of higher learning were established (for us) in the belief that knowledge can save us all. But mere knowledge......

Before entering college, during the final interview I was asked “Why do you want to study in UP?” without a doubt, I readily answered “To be able to study in the premier university of the country is my childhood dream and I don’t want it to be just any other dream.” So I got in and I can clearly remember the my first day in UP, I am wearing my best that day because of mom reminded me to always dress as if you’re going to see you worst enemy. I was wearing elephant pants, wedges and a vintage tight fitting top while most of my classmates are just wearing shorts and slippers. It is really a great feeling that I am at my dream university, I really can’t imagine myself graduating from any other school except UP. I took up Bachelor in Sport Science, a pre-medical course because I wanted to pursue medicine at that time. I love science and how the human body works so I worked hard and studied well to become a university scholar each semester. I would skip gimiks and parties because I have a goal and I have to meet those. I am thinking that, I am already here so why not make the most out of it. During my sophomore year, I got invited to join the UP Dragon boat Team, my friends are joining and because of peer pressure I joined. I am not the strongest of the team, but since I wanted to be on the line-up I did not skip any training day. My mom......
