My Trip To K-Mart Store In Bowling Green Kentucky

Good Essays
It was the wee hours of the morning on a hot and scorching June 11th 2015 I had no idea that my life and perspective of life would be altered. I just sent a text message to my co-worker Sean about going to K-Mart Store in Bowling Green Kentucky to help out. I was hesitant to go because it was an hour away. He ended up miraculously persuaded me to pursue this paid adventure.
It was around 5:00 I was changing and getting ready to go on this trip with my Co-workers Sean and Haley. I told my mother about it yesterday and she didn’t seem so swayed by it. I went in her room that morning and told her of my plans, she was still hesitant she said she had a bad feeling but then told me to be careful. We rendezvoused at work and went off. Most of trip

I had to tell my mom I was in an accident, scared that she would start worrying I lied to her and told her it was no big deal and a minor fender bender occurred. I think she didn’t believe me but she said Okay. I got home and I told her about the whole ordeal and showed her the picture and she started crying, I felt terrible I didn’t want to make my own mother cry I felt selfish and foolish. She said she would pray for me, even though I’m not too religious I appreciated it. I then took it easy for a week and went back to …show more content…
The scene of what happened kept replaying in my head over and over, I was scared to go on the road especially on the interstate. I didn’t want to die. I would be extra careful on the interstate and I would breathe in a little more air than normal. It died down after several months. I learned a lot by this event. Life is precious and it can come to an abrupt end in seconds. So I learned to live life to the fullest because you only have 1 life, so make it your best and don’t waste time by doing stupid things. It motivated me to do better in college and work. I learned that we are so lucky to be alive we were a miracle I think the statistics of us being alive individually is like 1 in 125 million? I also learned that money isn’t something to die for especially for a measly 7.25$. I since then left that Job and work a better job with better pay making twice as much and go to college, wanting to go to MTSU to finish up my degree in Computer Science and start my career and later down the road have a family and share precious moments of my life with

    Just like me, thousands of international students as well as local students are benefitted by the affordable price, simple requirements for admission, and tremendous options and opportunities of community college. Though I belong to engineering field back in my country, I was able to switch to IT field and many of those grades were easily transferred to a community college which saves both time and money. At the moment I have an Associate degree and employed in an IT field as well. This would not have been possible in the absence of community college. The most interesting thing is, for my Bachelors degree I am taking only core course at Western Kentucky University while taking other general courses at community college in a very cheap price comparing to WKU, which is about 3 times more expensive.…

Not funny now, because Sondos is dying!! The surgery went fine, an hour later the doctor returned and showed us the pin that was in her throat and asked us if we wanted to keep it.

    In addition to “planting seeds” people must also be able to ask questions. Throughout my whole life, I have found it hard to be able to ask questions. However, it was only until I was getting ready for college that I found questions weren’t so hard to ask. Over the summer I had an internship at my father’s company, as an IT assistant. My first day on the job, my boss told me to ask as many questions as I could, he said “If you don’t ask, you don’t learn.” So, about 5 minutes after that, he asked me what I knew about computers.…
