“Memories play a confusing role. They make me laugh when I remember the time I cried together! But make me cry when I remember the time I laughed together. They too can make me mad but, for sure, no matter what emotion they carry, they all share a place deep in my heart.” Every moment, when I recall them in my mind, they appear to be fresh. I cannot make myself believe that I already passed those times and will never be in the same time again. A chill runs down my spine awaking all my senses till date when I remember them. I especially remember the time when I was able to make my whole family proud of me. That was the time when I saw my own future as I had wished that to be. Every time I think of it, it takes me on a voyage of happy moments. In my whole life; it is uncountable how many happy moments that I’ve gone through since I was small. Happy moments are something that made us very happy and it is unforgettable. It will never be erased out of our mind and we will always remind of it for the rest of our life. It might happen daily, weekly, monthly and even annually but it really happened. It makes us smile to the ears and sometimes it tears us down. I just can’t imagine how it feels if we don’t experienced all those happy moments. I was staring at the stars shining in the sky. The city was dark due to the scheduled power outage. People in city were in their mid-sleep but I was standing at the balcony, checking my emails. I was checking my email account after five long months. Meanwhile, I was remembering my mentors, instructors and my friends. I was desperately waiting for my results to be published; the one that was going to decide the direction of my life. I was wide awake at mid hour of night because I had heard that results will be out at almost midnight. Exam had gone…...

In a Moment

...How Life Can Change in a Matter of Seconds It was a cool fall October night and my family had just left church. I had not been feeling well and was not eating much at all. My husband was concerned so he suggested that we go somewhere for a late dinner. After great debate I decided tat the only thing I really wanted was broccoli and cheese soup from Ruby Tuesday’s. My daughter, Holly, was in ill sorts and was fussing about not wanting to go with us which was a very unusual characteristic for her. My aunt told us she would stay at our house with her while we went out to eat. After we had dinner we had to drive across town to pick up some Krispy Kreme doughnuts for my aunt because she was leaving for Gatlinburg, Tennessee with her grandchildren the next morning. We decided that since it was already 9:00 pm we would take the back way home which included riding on dark “country” roads. I was driving as my husband relaxed in the passenger side from over indulgence. We were almost home and we were driving on a curvy road. When we went around a curve it all of a sudden looked like a thousand fireflies were in front of us. I heard my husband exclaim “what in the world and then he screamed look out!” But it was too late because just as I realized it was a truck in our lane with no headlights on and the “fireflies” that I saw were actually the reflection of our lights on his grill we hit head on. I do not know how long it was before I came too from...

One Significant Moments of My Life

...September 2013 One Significant Moment in My life America has been always my greatest adventure and my greatest fear. Like others international students, I was very nervous about the culture, the people, and the country itself because I have never traveled to a foreign country before. How people are going to take me? Will I be ignored by people because I am from different cultures? Will I be able to make friends? Will I be able to adjust to that new life? The question that was stuck in my mind, but I didn’t have any definitive answers. This all started when I was only sixteen years old. I have been hearing that there are many events in life, which can change their life in a way that they have never expected before. I have never trusted those words until now. As for me, I think the major event that changed my life is when I moved from Bangladesh to America for better education. On a Sunday morning, I was playing outside with my cousin. Suddenly, my father calls me inside, gives me a bunch of papers and offers me to go study abroad for my higher education. Studying aboard was my childhood dream; however, before that, my parents never wanted me to leave my country. My mom is the one who always stop my father for giving me permission to study abroad. After all that , when my father finally decided to let me study abroad in the United States of America, I was very excited and I agreed right away. Coming to the United States of America was a big change in my life. I wanted......

Moments of Impact

...Baker It’s The Moments of Impact That Define Us Have you ever gotten news that made your chest tighten up and tears stream down your face? I find it funny how the happiest and saddest you could possibly be create the same exact physical reaction. I believe it’s the moments like this that define us. Our every step and breath add up to create our identity. The times in our life that leave a footprint on our hearts or even on someone else’s is what matters the most. But what sustains it? In December of 2004 my whole world was shaken with the news that three of my family members had a sudden cardiac arrest death syndrome called Brugada. This disease is usually detected by a death in the family, since we found out about it before this could happen I suppose you can consider us lucky. An identifying word for my family may be “lucky,” but hearing that news I knew I would never be the same. That is a moment that defines a change in identity. I never knew just how different my life would be though. I would have never assumed that I would be the one to have an anxiety attack when hearing even the faintest sounds of sirens. I would have never assumed that I would be taking a trip to the hospital at least twice a year to see one of my family members go into heart surgery. I also would have never assumed that I could be identified as “strong.” Every person carries their own cross, if they rise above it all and continue to be who they’ve always wanted to be then in my opinion, one......

My Happy Place

...As I sit here, on the hood of my car looking out into the vast field I think to myself, why this place? Out of all the places that mean so much to me, why does this place stand out the most? Everyone has that one spot that is special to him or her for various reasons whether it be a memory, experience, how it makes them feel, etc. For me, my favorite place encompasses all my senses bringing them to an all time high filling me with an overwhelming indescribable feeling. It’s my sanctuary, a safe place, but above all a place to clear my mind and getaway from reality. There aren’t enough captivating words to describe the beauty of this place. In the winter, the vast field covered in a blanket of untouched glimmering snow surrounded by bare trees brings a certain type of quiet stillness to the place. The only sign of life are the tracks made by the various animals that are brave enough to stick around during the chilly winter temperatures. The spring brings new life to the space with the blossoming of nature, muddy shoeprints and birds singing their sweet little songs. In summer, the preserve comes to the peek of its lifecycle packed with people and laughter. Nature’s vibrant colors and the soft sounds make it seem as if it was a scene out of a perfect movie. The fall brings cool crisp air to fill your lungs with and the unspeakable beauty of the leaves changing colors. Each season encompasses a different vibe to the preserve leaving me with different emotions. The preserve is......

My Most Embarrising Moment

...My Most Embarrassing Moment ITT-Technical Institute My Most Embarrassing Moment What is an embarrassing moment? I would have to say, it is when things go not as planned. My most embarrassing moment happened February 1983. I was a junior at W.P. Davidson High School. I was a member of the N.J.R.O.T.C. unit there. My unit was participating in the Senior Bowl halftime show. We were responsible for bringing out a balloon of Popeye. We were to march out on the field carrying Popeye. Popeye was to be laid down at the fifty yard line. We were to raise him up on cue. We were instructed to then march off the field with him. All of this was to be done in a fully packed stadium. We marched out on the field without incident. The wind was a little strong, but not bad. We laid Popeye down on cue. My best friend decided to curl his line on the ground next to his feet. On cue we began to raise Popeye. My friend’s foot got caught in the rope. My friend rose in the air with Popeye. I tried to unravel him from the rope. I finally got hit loose. Everyone in the stadium started to laugh. The game was televised on national television. We were also seen on local television. My family and friends all watched the game and, of course, the halftime show. I have never experienced anything like that. Now I look back, and I laugh....

The Drive by Burger My Decisive Moment

...about fleeing the flames, and yet their leader was starting a new fire. Robert Sallee, a first-year smokejumper who survived the blaze, later said he’d thought that “Dodge had gone nuts, just plain old nuts.” But Dodge was perfectly sane. In the heat of the moment he managed to make a very smart decision. The question, for those of us looking back on it, is how? What allowed him to resist the urge to flee? Why didn’t he follow the rest of his crew up the gulch? Part of the answer is experience. Most of the smokejumpers were teenagers working summer jobs. They had fought only a few fires, and none of them had ever seen a fire like that. Dodge, on the other hand, was a grizzled veteran of the forest service; he knew what prairie flames were capable of. Once the fire crossed the gulch, Dodge realized that it was only a matter of time before the men were caught by the hungry flames. The slopes were too steep and the wind was too fierce and the grass was too dry; the blaze would beat them to the top. Besides, even if the men managed to reach the top of the mountain, they were still trapped. The ridge was covered with high, dry grass that hadn’t been trimmed by cattle. It would burn in an instant. For Dodge, it must have been a moment of unspeakable horror: to know that there was nowhere to go; to realize that his men were running to their deaths and that the wall of flame would consume them all. But Dodge’s fear wasn’t what saved him. In fact, the overwhelming terror of the......

My Dumb Moments

...alcohol, onset of memory lapses while drinking, (“blackouts”), surreptitious drinking, and an urgent need for the first drink (“craving”). In the middle and late phases, dependence on drinking increases and memory blackouts become more frequently. A physical dependence on alcohol first appears with early warning tremors and agitation that require a drink for relief. In the late stage, drinking bouts are usually very frequent. There is an acute withdrawal syndrome, delirium tremors or DT’s, when drinking ceases. This includes agitation, tremors, hallucinations and possibly seizures. (American Medical Association, p.7) As this author is primarily concerned with the relationship between medical diseases and alcoholism, I should like to focus my attention at this time towards this topic. For example, recent studies have raised questions about the role that dietary fat and cholesterol play in cardiovascular disease, the number one killer of American citizens. Can low cholesterol be unhealthy? Certainly it has been established that high cholesterol can, at least the bad cholesterol. Some studies found that people with the lowest cholesterol levels were less likely to die of coronary heart disease than people with higher cholesterol levels but they had higher mortality rates from other causes, such as lung cancer, digestive diseases and accidents. However, there is no evidence that low cholesterol causes diseases, according to Dr. Rosser. He speculates that very low levels may......

My Happy Detroit

...Changing the Narrative * An Analysis and discussion of “My Happy Detroit” Ruined streets, echoing car alarms and dilapidated buildings all combine to provide the perfect scenery for a post-apocalyptic film. However, there is nothing dramatized about this image - It is the concerning reality of modern day Detroit. At least, that has been the narrative in the media since the latter part of the sixties. Carolyn Edgar, who spent her childhood in Detroit, tells another story. Carolyn Edgar graduated with a bachelor degree in English with high distinction, giving her opinion academic reliability. Her work consists mostly of writing for internet blogs. She has worked consistently for the progressive, liberal magazine Salon for the last three years. She was raised in Detroit, and she mostly has fond memories of the city. This is why she wants to dismantle the message in the media. Edgar appeals to pathos by telling anecdotes of her childhood, in order to rebut the common narrative of the media. She begins by painting an idyllic scene: Children playing at a barbecue. “While the ribs were on the grill, we would play Motown hits on the record player another cousin brought over for the occasion”(ll. 7-8). This image immediately creates empathy and identification with the reader, and dismantles the image that the common person has of Detroit as a dilapidated city. By anchoring the reader with an emotional standpoint right from the beginning, Carolyn establishes a bond of......

A Happy Meal for a Happy Mind

...A Happy Meal for the Mind When I was a little girl I always thought it was a treat to visit McDonalds. This magical place had a giant play-place, ice cream, French fries and of course that special surprise toy contained inside the happy meal. What else could I have wanted? This world lost all of its glamour however, when I became a teen who experienced the inner workings of this land from the side of employment. I will never forget the place that was to be my first experience of the working world. My Fifteenth birthday had just passed and this meant I was finally old enough to enter the work force. So I went to the only place in the area that would hire a kid without experience or a driver’s license, McDonalds. Now, I wasn't entirely thrilled about the idea of working in this environment but if I wanted to get a car in the next year it was off to work for me. Somewhat sullenly, I donned my uniformed baseball cap and made my way behind the service counter. Feeling a little nervous, I fumbled as I attempted to tie my apron behind my back. I began to wonder what I might be assigned to do first. "Well, as long as I can work behind the scenes and avoid talking to people I should be okay." I thought. Standing motionless, I observed the fast-food frenzied scene. Employees were running here and there yelling to one another, order screens were flashing, various machines were......

Disappointing Moment in My Life

But, sometimes life is full of disappointment. It came on December 11, 2012, as I sat in my office writing a report on training I had recently completed for some villages. Suddenly, in a very loud voice, my manager called me into his office where he was checking a report I had given him previously. As I stood beside him, his hand clutched a cup of coffee, while the other held my report. I remember the black jacket and shoes, and glasses, he was wearing. After several minutes, he put my report down and exchanged the coffee cup for a bowl of noodle soup. I thought he would explain why he called me, but he said nothing. It became very embarrassing just standing there. Minutes passed and still he didn't speak. Frustrated, I spoke to him politely as possible and asked if there was anything I could do or comment I could make. No response. As I stood close alongside, it became more difficult to smile. In fact, he began to frighten me, and his strange grin unnerved me, even as he kept eating his noodle soup. It was scary and very embarrassing. Finally, he spoke. "I need your wholehearted support in carrying out our project," he said, to which I......

It was 7am and already one could tell the day is going to be sunny, as the sun had already started showing its ugly face. By 8am my team members had assembled at the school assembly hall, dressed in the school navy blue and golden yellow track suite, I was called to address my team mates. Since I was the captain of the school team, I was filled with anxiety and overwhelming thought as I began to speak to them.

The stadium was filled with students from the participating schools, spectator institutions and the enthusiastic public spectators.
