As I Was Young

...“We're taught at such a young age that you can always be better and that you're never perfect and that you're never good enough.” This a quotation from SHAWN JHONSON. In younger years we experience indefinable feelings like walking in the clouds and curiousness. There is always a question in our mind about a certain things, place and many more. Being a teenager is like experimenting something. We go out in our comfort zone. We are trying many things and also doing it. Curiousness is the reason why we are trying those things. In fact in this period teen agers learned how to smoke, how to drink alcoholic drinks. Most people called this period the beginning of bad habits. Our body is slowly changing in this period. Not only physical changes but also emotional changes. Teenagers trying to act like adult but sometimes they act like childish person. Most of the time we do things and make a decision without understanding and analyzing what will happen next. Teenagers want things as easy as possible. They don’t to have a responsibility and others don’t want to follow their parents. Some are respectful and some are honest. In this period teenagers feel sometimes that they are alone in this world.

When I Was One and Twenty

...When I was One-and-Twenty Summary Our speaker gets some advice from an older, wiser person: don't bank too much on love. Like any young person, he promptly ignores the advice. Did we mention that he's 21? Keep that in mind. It'll be important later. Flash forward: now he's 22. And as it turns out, the advice he got was pretty good. Love hurts. And we're not just quoting that '80s song. Line 1-2 When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say, • Uh-oh. Any time a literary work starts out with a wise man's sayings, you just know that they're probably going to be ignored. If we listened to wise advisors, we wouldn't have any stories to tell. And poems are stories, after all. • So, we've got a young whippersnapper and his older mentor. Stay tuned, folks…. Lines 3-6 "Give crowns and pounds and guineas But not your heart away; Give pearls away and rubies But keep your fancy free." • Well, it turns out that love is worth more than gold. Or, er…the lack of love is worth more than gold. • Don't let the happy tone and snappy rhymes confuse you: this poem is about control. It turns love into an economic calculation, one which allows the "wise man" to balance feelings against more conventional forms of currency (crowns and pounds and guineas are, after all, the big guns of the U.K.'s monetary system). As it turns out, the heart is more valuable than money – which is precisely why the speaker's buddy thinks that it should remain soundly within his control. • Of course,......

A Paper I Wrote When I Was 15

...Bentley. I am black and brown with spots and many people love me more than cats. I am very very fluffy and tiny and I love playing in the backyard. I am also shy around others. Can you guess what I am? I am a puppy. One day when I was walking back from the beach to the hotel, Chima, the mean dog threw his ball at me and hit me in the head. I told him to say he was sorry but he didn’t. He and all of his friends laughed at me because I didn’t act like they do or pick on other puppies. I felt so embarrassed that I ran as fast as a cheetah back to the hotel where we were vacationing at. Chima, Lily, Marco, Roo, and Josey were all award winning showcase dogs. They were bigger than me and older than me that’s why they bothered me all of the time. After this horrible encounter it was time to go back home to Atlanta, Georgia. After a few weeks passed before I saw them again. This time it was different. I saw Lily, Roo, and Marco screaming for help because Josey and Chima were stuck in a hole. While they were trying to pull them out, Roo and Marco accidently fell in, so Lily needed help. I thought about all the times they had been mean to me but instead of not helping, I ran to Lily, grabbed the rope, and helped her pull them out. They were so relieved to be out of the hole. But even though Bentley helped them out, they still were mean to him. The next day Roo told them that they were wrong for treating me so bad when I never did anything to anyone because I was so shy.......

When God Was a Woman

...When God Was A Woman by Merlin Stone In “When God Was a Woman” written by Merlin Stone there are arguments presented that could change one’s beliefs about whether or not God was a female at first. The first theory presented referred to the story about Adam and Eve. It is believed that since Eve disobeyed God and ate the forbidden fruit, he punished women by making them less superior to men. Stone also presented strong evidence such as sculptures of women found in the Gravettian-Aurignacian cultures as late as 25,000 BC to argue that God was a woman. Statues made out of stone, bone, and clay were discovered as Venus sculptures that people worshiped. With the evidence Stone presented, I think God could have been a woman and over time the religious perspective has changed the way woman have been treated. Religion and historical findings work together to collectively assume that God was once a woman. According to the Bible, “in prehistoric and early historic periods of human development, religions existed in which people revered their supreme creator as female”(xii). People practice many different religions and contribute largely in the way people live there lives. When growing up individual’s views are instilled in them by their parents where they are taught to worship a certain God. Growing up the Ten Commandments were an essential in the Catholic religion. The Hebrews believed in a light blazing, also known as the God on a mountaintop. I am the Lord thy God......

The Thinks Guide to God. (This Is Rubbish I Did It When I Was 15)

...caught my attention as I thought it could challenge me and the way I think about the world. This book also had very good reviews. Personally I didn’t believe in one religion, I believed each religion has very good views. And they aren’t all that much different. While reading the first chapter I enjoyed the detail they went into when analysing the paintings. I would never have look so deeply into the paints and opened my mind into the small feature with such a big point and meaning behind them. I enjoyed reading Aristotle’s views on god. I liked the fact that Aristotle and Plato both have different views and both of which have good points. After learning they both had different views it made me think of all the people in the world and how many people can have different views and beliefs from each other. Although they had different view they still got on… where as in the world to do we have wars for different views. In the second chapter they tell us of the first believing God(s) living in woods, trees, rivers and the earth, fire, water and air; this is something I partly believe in – mostly them living in the highest mountains and the sky… I believe in the gods (like in the film Hercules) I enjoy that the book calls out the view of biologist- the fact they believe god an old man with white bread being worshiped by millions of people across the globe. And the fact the y mocked people when “their understanding is limited, not the concept of God. I enjoyed that the......

Dream Deferred and When I Was One and Twenty

...It is funny how two poems can go hand in hand but not be related in any way. Such is the case with the poems "Dream Deferred" and "When I Was One and Twenty". They speak the same kind of concept in terms of life goals. In "When I Was One and Twenty", the old wise man says not to give your heart away so young because you will regret it. Whether he is talking about having your heart broken by someone at a young age or giving up on your dreams to settle down isn't known. If a person gives up on their dreams or puts them on the back burner to pursue a relationship, it is the same as a raisin in the sun. Although a raisin is a dried up grape that is still full of nutrition, it becomes hard and useless after a while. Such would be the case with life goals, if you put them on hold to pursue a relationship, they become useless over time and forgotten. If a young person enters a relationship while in college lets say, their focus is no longer on school really. Most want to spend as much time as possible with the other. As the writer looks back upon himself in "When I Was One and Twenty", he basically says that he should've listened to the old man's advice. He is only twenty two at that point and already regrets the decision he made to give his heart away. There are plenty of people that will tell you that they had given up on their dreams to continue a relationship. Whether it be letting a dream job be passed up or an opportunity to do something they have always wanted to.......

When I Get Old

...Running head: WHEN I GET OLD 1 When I Get Old Janice Johnson SOC304 – Social Gerontology Dr. Elaine Alden October 26, 2014 Running head: WHEN I GET OLD When I Get Old There are conflicting ideas about what to expect as we get older. Will we be able to keep growing our gardens, be able to keep our present jobs or will the younger generation take our 2 freedom and pride from us. Our text states that no matter how old you are, child or adult, that we are told to “act our age” because societies have a social system that is considered to be normal (Markson & Stein, 2012). It is getting harder to think of a norm for saying someone is old now because we are living longer and for example women are having their children, are almost a grandparent or a last child is just graduating and leaving the home around the same age. The chronological age is not enough to say whether someone is reaching a certain norm age group as easily as it used to be determined (Markson & Stein, 2012). Some of the issues that we do have to deal with as we grow older are when others discriminate against us, the aches and pains that come with different levels of intensity and how we feel about ourselves at this time. Discrimination Anyone who has gone and applied for a job, no matter what kind of education they may have or how they feel, they are turned down for the position and while not telling you, it is because of your age that you were turned down. It is much the same kind of discrimination......

I Was a Prisoner

...I Was a Prisoner The words in this book have given me more peace, love and happiness than I ever could of imagined. Learning to walk, talk and live by faith I was able to find the courage to write a testimony of my life that has helped to enrich and empower others. My parents divorced when I was very young. My father quickly moved away; leaving me with feelings of loss and abandonment. One morning I woke to the sound of my parents yelling, and the incident ended with my father shooting the family dog. As a result, I was consumed with anger, hate and was fearful he would come back and shoot me. Twelve years later, my father resurfaced and took my sister, her boyfriend and I to his home in Florida against our mother’s wishes. I was ready to phone her with the truth when my father came to me drunk with a baseball bat, put it to my head, and threatened to kill me if I told my mom the truth. I put him out of my mind and my heart and instead turned to my stepfather for guidance. Unfortunately, that would not last long, as one day he decided to molest me while I was asleep on the couch. This only happened once, but left me living in fear. For that reason I turned to alcohol to deal with the pain, and constant bullying at school caused me to drink more. My mother blamed me for everything, which caused our relationship to diminish severely. At age sixteen, I met a guy whom I quickly found interest in. June 17th was my birthday and he took me to the lake for a surprise party......

I had little family support, but still I made the best of everything. Two months before my sixteenth birthday, I found out my life was going to change. I was pregnant. Being pregnant at a young age was expected in my neighborhood. Pregnancy at this age was not what I wanted for myself. I knew pregnancy could be tough on a woman mentally, financially, and also physically. In life, people are faced with choices. Some of life’s choices are very simple, for example, deciding what to wear to work or choosing what to watch on TV. Other choices, however, are much more serious and have life-altering consequences. Being pregnant had many choices, whether to keep my baby. There was no question I was keeping my baby. I didn’t quite think about how I was going to take care of a baby. I just knew that I had to.

If I Was President

...English composition II Bottom of Form If I were president I would strive to accomplish three major things. First, I would strengthen our educational system; second, I would make certain that everyone has equal and fair treatment in our society; and lastly, I would stop terrorism because we are dealing with a war against terrorism. Our education system in America is not one we should be very proud of. Yes, America does have excellent schools, colleges, and learning institutions, but our standards are not set as high as other countries. For example, our country does not fund our schools adequately. Teachers teach with not enough books, no supplies, or books that are often over 20 years old. How can we expect our children to be up to date with the world’s information if our teaching materials are not new? Often teachers in our public schools are forced to buy text books and supplies for our children with their own personal money. Why do they do this? Because they believe in a good education for all learners. Our country "prides" itself on the quality of education a person can receive here, yet teachers are one of the countries lowest paid professionals. If I were president, I would also make sure that everyone in this country was treated equally and fairly. The 13th Amendment to the constitution did abolish slavery, and the 14th Amendment was passed to counter the black codes, but in reality, discrimination still occurs in every aspect today in America.......
