    I feel a rush of adrenaline. My pulse races out of excitement and ecstasy, not nervousness. I am not myself, and I love it. I love auditioning. I love rehearsing, costuming, memorizing lines, blocking, stepping out on the stage opening night, bowing for curtain call, meeting the audience. I love acting. I live to do it, and it defines me. In college, I hope to pursue theatre as a major and develop my skills, eventually making it into a career. And I will approach all the challenges of college as…

    success. The Oxford English Dictionary defines success as ‘The attainment of popularity or profit.’ Personally, I feel this definition is too narrow and a bit distorted. I feel that true success should be defined as setting short and long-term goals and also successfully achieving them. Also, success can just mean excelling at something.

    The word success to me means that there’s an accomplishment of an aim or purpose. Success is things you achieve that you want. In order for me to do that, I do all my assignments and study for tests and achieve my goals. When I do that action, it has now been considered successful. When people enjoy their work, and if it gives them an opportunity to spend time with their family and have a balanced life, they’d consider themselves successful because it happens and it works. Success is when you…

    What does it truly mean to be successful? Would you consider yourself a success if you have loads of money, a nice car, or a beautiful house? When most people picture success, they imagine images of millionaires, championship athletes, or business tycoons. But does success really have to be about the money? Does it really have to be about the notoriety? I think success is something entirely different. A teacher enriching the lives of countless students can be a success. A bank teller can be a…

    is a leader. A leader by definition is “a guiding or directing head, as of an army, movement, or political group.” (Merriam Webster Dictionary) this defines a leader but a leader is so much more. A leader is a person who can inspire others to do things they never thought they could. A leader is able to engage with others to provide purpose, motivation, and direction. My personal belief is that this is what makes a leader effective at leading other people. This definition and ability to provide…
