Reflection Of Linguilogy: How Are Things Going?

Decent Essays
Hello Ruslan,

How are things going?

How`s your day?

I am fine, enjoying my holidays. Probably, it`s the last summer when I don`t work. I graduate from university the next year and I have to work hard.

I am an «eternal student» because when I was 18, I entered the Medical academy (possibly, I told you about it, sorry, if I repeat), but everything was horrible at the institution. The academy was horribly corrupted, students received good marks only because of their money, many students were not of my social circle (I am from teachers` family, my father is a university teacher, my mother is a primary school teacher, and my grandma is a secondary school teacher). All the guys, who studied there, were so called «gilded youth», lazy and idle rich young people. I hated them and hated university teachers, because I crammed every day, I studied a lot, I was really a hard-working student, but they did not appreciate that. They needed money, they needed someone from movers and shakers of the world to give them excellent marks. I decided to drop out from the Academy, and about 3 years later I entered the Nizhny Novgorod State Linguistic University. Now I am doing my Bachelor degree.

I have a lot of happiest memories, but my happiest is when my family circle and I were celebrating New Year. It was in 1994. I was 4 years old. Everything around me was glittering, the New Year Tree was amazing, the diner was the most mouth-watering I have ever had. But all these things are trifles, because I am in love with this moment most of all my family members: my father, my mother, my grandmother, my uncle, and brother were with me. My parents were young, my brother was healthy, my grandma was alive. It`s so sad, because my grandmother passed way in 2014. I remember that holiday dinner in details, everything was awesome and spectacular. I was on cloud nine and I got asleep at my mum`s

    Maltreatment of students is also seen in colleges today. Sometimes, teachers expect too much from their students not realizing they have other responsibilities. For instance, one of my professors heavily weighs our chances of being exempt from the final. In order to be eligible to not take it, we have to take many quizzes and write many papers every week for the duration of the semester. The professor lost all the quiz grades that the students worked very hard on.…

    I barely graduated high school because of my issues with doing homework. I remember in high school it came down to the last couple weeks of my senior year. All my teachers were fed up with me. They had all thrown me so many lifelines to try to prevent me from failing. I even had one of my favorite teachers fill out on me and give me a lecture for being such a turd.…

    There were home cooked meals, treats, presents, stockings, and everything that made Christmas warm and cozy. The happiest time in my life was when I was eating the Christmas dinner at the bar stools with my sister and my two little cousins. I was eating and all of a sudden I stopped and looked around at my cousins and my family. I thought to myself, wow, I wish I could live in this moment forever. I do not care for the cold that much, but that day was the happiest moment I can think of as an adolescent.…

    T Holidays were a time when family and close friends surrounded us. Two things really stand out in my memories of holidays. One is that all of our family was always together on the actual holiday, and the other is the sounds and smells that filled the house. I can remember waking up to the smells of food cooking, hearing the laughter of my siblings and cousins echo through the house, and in the background some form of sporting event on the TV. Holidays were always eagerly anticipated as it was one of the few times throughout the year my entire extended family was together.…

    It is always a fun-filled day with a Dirty Santa gift exchange, and a huge delicious meal. One of my most cherished Christmas traditions actually takes place a couple of days after Christmas. My aunt, uncle, and cousins come from Dallas to Oklahoma City for a few days and during that time we take our “Annual Limber Family Limo Ride” to see Christmas lights. My family started this tradition in 2008 as…

    My family always had numerous different occasions in which when we gathered together to share memories and enjoy each other’s company. A holiday without family is not nearly as special as a holiday with our families. In my opinion, spending time with the older generation is a crucial element for our generation, the lessons are endless and it gives us a chance to see life in a different perspective and respect the simple things in life. My family and I get together for any and all occasions, my grandmother is the best cook I know and that only makes living next door to her and my grandpa that much better! We celebrate the obvious holidays such as: a white, snowy Christmas, our turkey filled Thanksgiving, a ball dropping New Years, fire work…

    “The Worst Witch” Not everyone has a picture perfect childhood, but I am blessed to have a wonderful family who have given me a great childhood. We make memories that will last a lifetime and our tradition on Halloween will be carried on for future generations to come. The tradition of watching ‘The Worst Witch’ has brought my family closer and it makes us realize how lucky we are to have the life we live. Growing up my dad had an abusive alcoholic father, therefore he did not have a picture perfect childhood. His parents had their time split between seven busy children, so twenty-four hours in a family that big was spread as thin as butter on bread.…

Thanksgiving is always hosted at my parents’ house and that’s usually where most people would stay for the weekend.…

    Let’s start with my father’s side. On Christmas Eve for my entire life the entirety of my father’s family got together for a serious feast. It was always held at my grandparents’ house and my grandmother was an unbelievable cook. The air was always thick with the aroma of stuffing and gravy and the spread stretched so far that every family member would be able to eat until they popped. Now, my grandmother has easily been one of the most important people in my life, taking care of me while my parents worked full time throughout my childhood.…
