Throughout my years of schooling I have always had the worst exsperience. I was teased all my years of elementry, middle school I was ignored, high school I was the "GEEK" who wore her mothers and sisters clothing. It seems like I have never had a break. I was never able to concentrate on school because I was just always worried about what everyone was saying about me. I was in and out of school, skipping class, hiding in bathrooms just to ignore the akward step of walking into a classroom. I never had anyone to talk to about these things, so I just kept everything inside of me. My mother "then", was not focused on us. She didnt wake us up in the mornings, she didnt get us ready for school, she wouldnt take us to school if we missed the bus. My second oldest sister did all of those things. If we missed the bus I remember having to run across the highway, and this is elementry and middle school days, to catch the bus before it went around the turn around. I never had someone forcing me to go to school or help me through my troubled years. I had to learn to coop on my own and get through things on my own. By the time I got into highschool i just didnt care anymore, I started hanging out with the wrong people doing things that I shouldnt have been doing having to switch schools countless times all eventually led me to just dropping out of high school. By this time, I was 18 and I was forced to live with my boyfriend and his family because of my mother kicking me out right when I turned 18. Previouslly before moving in with my BF, we had been together for about 3years and the abuse started after a year and a half of us being together. The things he would do and would say just put me into an all time low in my life. I had no self worth, I was depressed. Over weight, sad, scared, and was going no where in life. It honestly felt like I stayed in one room to hid from the...

Imagery Poem

...I am a brick wall. I am basketball , football, and a set of uneven bars. I am beautiful. I am love. I am power. I am strong. I am spontaneous. I am humble I am hope. I am a living breathing organism. I do not know why people seem to take my kindness for weakness. I do not know why I tend to put up a wall towards my parents when it comes to certain things. I do not know why I get angry by little things. I do not know why I stay up late and then complain about being tired in the morning. I do not know why people have good people in their lives and push them away. I do not know why people ask my stupid question that they already know the answer to I do not know why the person that murder my cousin don't turn them selves in. I do not know why I procrastinate with some things that I know I can do right away. I do not know why I am such a picky eater. I do not know why when people come into my room when I'm sleeping, leave the light on and don't close the door back when they are done what they was doing in my room. I am not a quieter. I am not selfish. I am not greedy. I am not mean. I am not over confident. I am not rude. I am not self centered. I am not arrogant. I am not dishonest. I am not unreliable. I wonder why I am such a loyal person. I wonder why I still believe I can dunk an I am only 5'5. I wonder why I call so many people a “friend.” I wonder why I let people in so easily. I wonder why I seem to always give people three and four chances....

Start with Why

...Haskett 9 February 2016 Start with Why Paper #2 In my level 5 story, through recollection of my past experiences, whether it was from my past thoughts of swimming, long drive home, or church experiences, the positive emotions I felt were peace, humility, love, anticipatory, positivity and honor. These emotions are foundational to who I am as a person and shape who I am. These emotions I hold at different levels of who I am. Firstly, within the confines of my passions, I would say that at the base root is love. I love to love others and I love life. That’s the foundation of why I do what I do for anything. I also think that my other passion is peace. I seek peace with others and desire harmony and strength with others and through others. It’s foundational to me and also the reasons why I do what I do. I really desire both peace and love for myself and others because I believe that is why we are created for what we do. Similarly to in “Start With Why”, when it is discussed that people and companies can copy you and do what you do but they cannot emulate what you do exactly because they do not have the reasons why. This is the same in my life where people want to try to seek similar things as me but they aren’t going to do it exactly the way that I do it. For that reason I have been through different experiences and have a passion that is specific to me and who I am....

To This Day

...The world where nobody called you a different name, where they didn’t pick on you, where you made the rules and where you felt safe. Why didn’t you feel safe awake? Why couldn’t you be free? Bernard Kelvin Clive once said, “Your mind can be either your prison or your palace. What you make it is yours to decide.” My mind is both. I can be free, but when I think of the things they said it makes me feel like “I’m the background noise of a soundtrack stuck on repeat” (Shane Koyczan). Remember that one kid you saw on the playground.The one you saw in the corner by themselves, the one who had no one to laugh, play, or talk too. I was that one kid. I was the kid who was an outsider, the one who didn’t belong to any clique, and definitely the one who had no friends. I was alone. I was surrounded by those who would say “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” As if those broken bones hurt more than the words we were called. We were told them all so we grew up believing we will be nothing. Nobody will ever fall in love with us or that we’d be lonely forever. “So broken heart strings bled the blues as we tried to empty ourselves so we would feel nothing. Don’t tell me that hurts less than a broken bone. It does” (Shane Koyczan). Nobody knew how I felt like I was lost in a dark abyss with no escape. The anguish, the pain, and the sadness. I cried out, “ Stop,” but did they listen? No , they continued....

Eriksons Timeline

...For me the stage I feel I am at in my life is more than one stage. The first is Generativity versus stagnation, the seventh stage (The Person, 2009). For me, this stage covers the need to be needed, and I get this from the one constant that I know for sure: that I am a mom who wants the best for my child. So for this I feel I relate to this stage, not only for my child, but I have the need to feel wanted in many aspects and thus could be why I am wanting to go into a career in human services. The question posed during this stage is “why do I feel the need to be needed so much?” I believe this consciously comes from being a teenager and not feeling loved as much as I would have liked, or events that happened that made me feel unloved. So for this I crave attention now; wanting to be wanted. The stage I feel I connect with the most though is intimacy vs. isolation. This stage is where you are supposed to have the question of “who am I?” out of the way for the most part, and I know who I am, just not what I want to be or even who I want to be with. At times I am so confused. I think I never got to fully find myself throughout my twenties. I was too wrapped up in other things such as drugs that I did not even know how to live life in a normal way. I did not know my likes and dislikes or even what I liked to do for fun....

The Big 28

...I am well rounded, independent, and caring person. I believe that being well rounded means that you are not just one way or another, it means you have a mix of characteristics. I believe I am independent, I take care of myself in life, along with my own child without looking for handouts. I am independent, I do not rely on others for anything including bills, money, school, child or transportation. Interdependent means you get help from others or depend on other to do things for you. Also recently I have begun to understand self-serving bias, I have begun to take responsibility for my actions instead of blaming outside factors for my misfortunes. Locus of control theory is where people believe that they can control events that can affect them. External locus of control is a person that believes the whole world is out to get them, luck does exist, and that life is unfair. Internal locus of control is when a person has feelings of being responsible for the outcomes that happen in their lives. I myself struggle with both concepts, there are days where I feel it is me against the world, and I must remind myself that everything will be okay. For the most part I have an internal locus, I take responsibility for the things that have been given me. I believe this shows me that at a young age of 27 I am doing okay, I may stumble and lose my way but I will always get back on track....

Other people might says, “Better to be with someone who will make you happy”, what if the reason why you prefer to be alone is that someone who you want to be with is always ignoring you when you need his help or let say his affection and belongingness is not unto you. What if every time you go for, is just like you’re a wind and crap to that person? How can you stay and find time to reassure that he will give you more time to talk with your problems or flaws either? How should you see yourself to be trapped and when you fall asleep the only thing you can imagine is your already dead without knowing and feel it?...

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....

..." Abelardo Morell – A Book of Books A visual tribute to the printed word, this ode to books will be irresistible to anyone who treasures the touch of fine paper and the special allure of a clothbound volume. A Book of Books showcases Abelardo Morell's elegant black and-white photographs of unusual books - an impossibly large dictionary, illustrated volumes whose characters appear to leap off the page, and water-damaged books that take on sculptural form. Nicholson Baker has written extensively about books and libraries. His preface is the ideal complement to Morell's photographs in this beautifully produced book lover's book. Bookish quotations from literary sources including Hawthorne, Borges, Cocteau, and others accompany the photographs throughout.

My Habtitudes

...Before I took the self-assessment, I looked at each category to see where I felt I belonged and “spontaneous” is was my first choice, but my second choice (I would have guessed) was “status”. According to the worksheet my advantages for being spontaneous that I agree with are: get a lot of attention and recognition, have many friends and acquaintances, get things right away without waiting, and experience the thrill of taking risks. I agree with those advantages because I am naturally that way… and it doesn’t cost anything. I am a hard worker, I am knowledgeable in what I do, and my bosses (all three of them) tell me how much they appreciate the work I do regularly. I do make friends easily, and I am good a friend in return. I do love taking risks – especially when my friends are there encouraging me. I don’t agree with: enjoy an exciting fun life and am able to quickly respond to opportunities. I don’t agree because those things cost. On the outside it may seem I enjoy life, but really inside I am miserable. My husband and I have made the most money we have ever made but we have nothing to show for it. We don’t enjoy life and we often have to turn down opportunities because we can’t afford it. As for the advantages that I agree with and how they help me – they help give me more money. The work I do and the appreciation I receive comes through raises and promotions....
