The man that changed my life. It all starts out in high school, freshman year to be on point. This story is not just going to be over just one day, It’s going to take four years. Now I know you are saying that is to long, well it’s just little at a time. It took years to change me as a person. The man I’m talking about is an old football coach, his name is Jeff Harig. He was born November 21, 1970 in Massillon, Ohio he went to Massillon Washington High School. His Religious Views Baptist. His Political Views, Republican Party. He is married with two kids. He moved to my hometown about 13 years ago and started to be a coach at Loudon High School. And a personal finance teacher. He also teaches the Dave Ramsey program.
It all started out after a football game. It was an away game. Not like any other because after we had a little get together and my football coach was taking about god and the way that he was talking about him I have never heard it before. He was taking about john 19 to 38. 18"I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill the scripture: 'He who shares my bread has lifted up his heel against me. I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He. I tell you the truth, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me." After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me. His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, "Ask him which one he means. “Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?" Jesus answered, "It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the…...

...eagerness to break the barriers and receive an “elementary education,” Eliza Doolittle finds herself abused and used by the men in her life. It was apparent to me that Eliza and Alfred Doolittle; her father did not have a close relationship. I conclude that this must be because Mr. Doolittle did not fulfill his fatherly duties. A father should provide for his children. However, Eliza from a young age made a living by selling flowers, providing for herself. This was seen in Act I when Eliza said “Buy a flower kind gentleman, I’m short my lodging.” In Act II Alfred Doolittle provides evidence that wasn’t involved much in Eliza’s life much. He said “Me! I never brought her up at all, except give her a lick of scrap now and again.” Later I thought it ironic that instead of Alfred providing for his daughter, yet he wanted Higgins to give him his “nights” as a father. Alfred and Eliza’s relationship is based on what he can benefit from her. He goes to the extent of making arrangements for Mr. Higgins to keep her for money. To add to this he gave Mr. Higgins permission to punish Eliza in a violent way if she was to get out of hand. Professor Higgins, the man who was successful in the art of English language, was indeed the man that abused Eliza the most. From their first encounter he describes Eliza as a creature “with her kerbstone English.” In my belief that was a foreshadow of the verbal abuse yet to come....

...Years That Made A Man Out Of Me 2003 started off like any other year if I am completely honest about it. There were no resolutions made, no tears or kisses exchanged at midnight on New Year’s Eve, hell I didn’t even go out that night, stayed in and just chilled with my girl and 4 month old son and watched the ball drop in times square with some Imo’s pizza and sparkling apple cider. The events that would ultimately shape the man writing this were already in motion and there was honestly nothing I could do to change or stop them, and honestly even if I could I don’t think I would’ve. I knew that in just 12 days I would be embarking on a journey that was 2 years in the making. I first signed up for the Navy back in 2000 during a time that I honestly can say was a good time for me. I was a junior in high school, working at Red Lobster, had a car, and a level of popularity that I had worked quite hard to attain and would kill to maintain. I decided that the Navy was the best option for me because I knew that I wasn’t really the college type even though I was very smart but I knew I lacked the discipline to truly excel in an environment where no one made you do anything, and partying was as much the norm as pre requisites and electives. So I decided, after seeing a few friends join and have some moderate success that the Navy was going to be my future. Now you have to understand that I was a kid who thought he was fearless and the prospect of military life had always......

My My Life Impact

...At a very young age I had to grow up fast and help my mom out with the kids. It was five of us at the time, our dad went to prison and left my mom with everything. When my mom went to work I had to be a mom when she was not there at times. I had to put away my teenage ways and become a parent. It was very hard at times because my sister's and brother had respect for me instead of our mom. I got devastated at times, but I pulled it together. I had no life because I was being a parent to my siblings. In high school I was a very troubled teenager who did not have a sense of direction. My grades were not good the first 3 years of school; it was up and down from there; but I always got through it somehow. My last year of school I pulled it together and made honor roll the whole entire year. At the end of the year I received a reward for my accomplishment. At that moment I felt very important that year. After High school I enrolled in college as a criminal justice major, everything came back to me and I fell in the same situation that I was in when I was back home. When I left home to go to college that was the first time I felt like I was on my own, I did not have to be a parent anymore, and I was only responsible for myself. The two years that I had attended I was not ready for college. My focus was having a life because it was taken from me as a child. I enjoyed being a free with no curfew . The school suspended for six months, I never went back to school. At that very moment......

...Gun is a weapon that can be used to reduce crime or violence, but can be used to perpetuate, violence and crime. It is true that guns do not do true shooting percentage: People do shoot. It is the person who owns the gun and injuries; we should be worried about intentions. The pride of a man with a gun, so that he or she can actually impose his or her will upon others. This aspect is what is dangerous to legalize guns, because guns are in the hands of the wrong people, crime and violence settings. I do not think people should be able to own a firearm possession of a firearm, because it will cause more problems than it solves. It has been proven time and time again to enjoy strict gun laws and low rates of violent crime country. In addition, people who own guns to protect often due to the accidental killing of their friends and family, and the children often have loaded guns, they found that playing at home, accidentally. People say, "When the gun ban only outlaws will have guns," but while in Japan and other countries, criminals have guns, they usually only use them fight among themselves. Ordinary citizens’ gun deaths are extremely rare. There is no reason to have a gun when you have a police force and army. The second revision of the constitution, there is no police force and no standing army. We do not need a second amendment right now. "Constitution" expressly provides that possession of a firearm in the United States is intended to enable the public to form a militia...

My Life

...“I can’t believe I’m actually going to do this!” all my life, I’ve always been the one to stay behind when I was needed, the one who was never comfortable with himself. I’ve always been afraid about every simple thing like being afraid of the dark, scared of spiders. Who would ever know, that my biggest fear would change my life completely! It all began when my mom said, “I think it’s time for you guys to meet both sides of our family.” My two sisters and I were very well confused hearing her surprising news. Deep down inside, I already knew what she meant, and I was extremely terrified. I was about eight years at the time. Since both of my parents came to the U.S for a better life, they left the most important people in their lives behind in Mexico. I grew up hearing lots of Mexican myths and stories about their childhoods like La Llorona, a Mexican myth of a ghost woman who drowns and kills little kids and also El hombre Sin Cabeza the dangerous man without a head riding his big black horse in the middle of the night knocking doors and killing everyone that comes his way. I was always terrified of listening to these stories and it gave me an even greater fear since I knew I was going to Mexico. I knew that the only way my family and I could get to Mexico was on a plane. Which brings me to my biggest fear: I am afraid of heights! My mom knew about my fear, but she never thought of it when buying the plane tickets. I didn’t know how to react. I could only think negative...

...Writing and healing Stacy Marvin My life When I think back on the life I have had, no one can take my memories away. The time I had in Florida with my soul mate, my best friend was irreplaceable to me. I cannot even explain how much I have learned from my life, the good and the bad. I want to share something with you from my past but also more recent. Here is one of my childhood memories along with one of the most heartbreaking ones that only happened on June 11, 2013. The sound of the engine revving up as I hit ninety around the twists and turns of the curvy road was the best adrenaline rush I ever had in my life. I was eleven years old and driving my dad’s brand new SS Monte Carlo. Heading to pick up my best friend Debbie. The roads were wet with the rain from earlier on that day. I turned down this dead end road and we started jamming to the music we cranked up a few minutes earlier. We did not see the curve in the road and I lost control of the car and ended up off an embankment that went down to the old railroad tracks. This cliff as I call it, used to have trains running through it, but then was just a rock quarry. Debbie and I both screamed as we skidded and lost control of the car and everything went silent. We were hanging off the edge, afraid to move. We just knew this was it for us, we told each other the final words we thought we would ever hear,( I love you my friend, you mean the world to me, I am glad you are here with me and she said......

My Life

...My life of 34 years, have been filled with love, happiness, trusting friendships, and a little disappointment from myself. Growing up I had an imagination incorporated with dreams and the feeling that one day I will make a difference to people. I did not want to be famous, however, I had a groaning from inside that I will be important. My journey has taken me on many trips, befriended many, and accomplished some things I was ok with. In this brief summary of my life I will give great tribute to a humanistic psychologist named Abraham Maslow. When I read about him in my psychology class at Olive Harvey College when I was twenty years old his theory was interesting but was not understood at that time in my life. It was not until I was 33, enrolled in a beginners psychology course at Chicago state university, I finally payed attention to his theory of life. The self- actualization stage was where I was at in my life; this feeling inside me was the desire to full my life to its full potential. Becoming all I can be. I had a house, I bought on my own, a job at the University of Chicago for twelve years, and a well rounded well behaved daughter. That was not good enough. My thought was what’s a house? what’s a job? I can be more than a phlebotomist with an associate’s degree in child development. There have been many people who have shaped me thinking and the way I view the world. My mother was my primary caregiver .she married my father, unfortunately, was separated from him......

...Trap Waking up in a mental asylum isn’t something you plan for, or even think about, but here I am. I entered Hellingly voluntarily. My doctor, Dr. Lepak, had been telling me to come here for a couple of years before I actually did come here. I think it was the constant crying and self harm, among other things. I came to Hell, as I like to call it now; on March the sixth 1972 and I’ve wanted to leave ever since. I have been an inmate here for seven years, two months, and thirteen days. Hellingly is like a rat trap. It’s easy to get in, but once in, impossible to get out. I came to Hellingly diagnosed with manic depression; this meant that I could hardly sleep. I just lay there thinking, torturing myself, about all the things I have done wrong in my life. This caused me to have episodes. It was like the devil himself took over my body, which caused aggressive behaviour towards inmates and nurses. The thing is, I was never aware of the changes in my behaviour. However, after an episode is over, I am always shocked at what I have done. When I first came, I had a special episode, which made me take a chunk out of a nurse’s forearm. As it was my first, they didn’t know how bad I would be and as they watched I charged for her apparently. This was all told by my neighbour, who thought it was brilliant, the next day. My neighbour, Rudy Thill, is my first and only friend here in Hell. I couldn’t really handle more than one friend. I’m not very good with people, and neither is......

...Autobiography My name is Adlemi Larissa Ramos and I would just like to take this time to talk to you a little bit about myself, my family, my past and how it has made me who I am today, my present plans and how I am working on myself to become a better me, and the plans I have for my future. In my family there are six of us. There’s my dad, Jose Luis Ramos, who I hate to say it, but I am just like him. My mom’s name is Rosa Imelda Ramos. She’s not the best, nor the most perfect, but nonetheless, I love her. I have an older brother whose name is Jose Angel Ramos. He sort of the black sheep of the family. He no longer lives with us but boy, how I miss those late-night McDonald’s runs. Next comes me. I don’t always like talking about myself or describing myself because I feel everyone has their own opinion as to “what you’re like.” After me comes my sister, Tiare Monique Ramos. She has quite an attitude, that one. I’ve grown to live with it. After her is my brother, Lineker Kothan Ramos. He’s a “mini-me” of my older brother and the silliest, most sensitive, non-filtered boy ever. Quite the family, huh? I am not married nor do I have any kids but I do have a loving man by my side. I met Ariel Madrid back in 2014 when my schedule in high school changed and I was moved into his chemistry class. Yes, this is the same Ariel Madrid that sits right next to me in class. We have been together now for one year and nine months and in that time period I have learned to love again, I have......

...Jordan Hollingsworth Professor Appling English 1102 28 February 2016 Paper on Simon J. Ortiz “(My Father’s Song) A poem is a set up of words out together into a piece of writing that partakes of the nature of both speech and song that is nearly always rhythmical, usually metaphorical, and often exhibits such formal elements as meter, rhyme, and stanza structure. In the poem written by Simon J. Ortiz is a very touch poem about ones father and how he misses him dearly. He recalls a memory they had once shared together. The next poem that will be laid out and made more clearer to the viewer will be a poem about a mans father and his hard work. The narrator of the story is one that is recalling his past and how he felt bad for his dad as a young boy. As he has gotten older and more understanding to challenges in life he starts to relative the hardship and to feel bad for his dad. Some expressions or descriptions that are used inside poems are figurative language, symbolisms, metaphor, simile, and personification. Figurative language is words or expressions with a meaning that is different from the literal interpretation. Symbolisms are the use of symbols to represent ideas or qualities. In the essay we will discuss the ideas of how the author uses different ways that they have put there thought together in the poem. Metaphor is a term of used to imply comparison between two literally incompatible items; it does not use explicit connective words. Simile is an explicit......

He: the Man of My Life

...“HE” My Father is really great and the greatest thing about him is that he never boasts his greatness in front of me. He always carries the golden crown of simplicity and modesty. His mind is full of abundant knowledge and intelligence and heart is richly adored with infinite love and care for his beloved daughters. I have seen many people describe their father as an oyster who wears a hard and ugly cloak of calcium but from inside it is adorned with an elegance of a white shiny pearl which makes him a valued possession of this heavenly world. But I would describe my Dear Father as a fine being whose love exceeds the vast expanse of the mighty ocean, whose words are sweeter than the sweetest mango of the earth, whose companionship is as pleasing as the great Almighty’s company may seem to be and the one who becomes stronger than the strongest potential in this three dimensional realm and more severe than the most furious rain or storm when seeing his loved one’s in trouble. ‘The father’ according to me cannot be described by just referring a mere living or non-living creature. ‘Father’ isn’t just a person but is an incomparable ‘Power’ which God made to protect his beloved progenies. Most of the people think of it as a Father but we can think of it even beyond that. ‘HE’ can also be thought of as a well-wisher and a friend to share our sweet secrets, to play Uno or even video-games. When it comes to my Father I totally agree with the concept that ‘Appearances are indeed......
