    When asked to describe yourself what do you say? Would you say your outgoing, bubbly, have an outgoing sense of adventure? Or maybe you would tell everyone how you have twelve cats and still live in your parent’s basement, maybe you would want to leave that part out. When we are asked to tell someone about ourselves we want them to see our best sides, our greatest achievements, our proudest moments right? So why don’t we tell them the truth, what about the pain, and suffering we have gone through, wouldn’t that be a better way for someone to get to know us? I am Savannah Benttine, I’m 20 years old and although the traits discussed earlier are great traits to have, I’m not going to tell you these things about myself. For you to get to know me, I have to tell you about the hardships I have faced, the love that I have and the passions that I hold. I find my life is best represented by a book, there are many different chapters in a book, just like there are many different chapters in our lives. So far in my story the largest chapter is my education. Sixteen years of my life has been dedicated to education. I grew up and went to school in St. Ansgar, Iowa, now I attend NIACC, here in Mason City. Although I will graduate in the spring with an AA degree and the Human Service certificate, my life as a student will continue. I will transfer to a university to obtain a master’s degree in either social work or early education. As many people know school can be a struggle. From being…

    When I was a kid I was Catholic. When I was a kid I was straight. When I was a kid I loved my parents without question.

When I was a kid I didn’t know who I was, but only who my parents were. With parents like mine, it took a few tries for me to finally become my own person, with one moment in…

    Dishonesty And Religion

    • 773 Words
    • 4 Pages

    I feel it 's a good basis for what society should be and strives to be but falls short. We made a mostly functioning society off of these beliefs, following laws and contracts. Although lacking are some aspects such as sharing and altruism. I feel that with some people their morality can be effected by their religion, but I strongly disagree with anyone that says without religions rules society would fall into chaos. There are always some exceptions to every rule, but the world is full of…

I knew there was a wedding that took place in the plot somewhere, but I did not know that the entire show took place in a bedroom. I liked the idea of the five bridesmaids using a bedroom as their getaway from the bride and the ceremony, and I liked how the audience never got to be at the actual wedding or meet who the bride was. It was interesting and it created good gossip…
