  • A Day: The Love Of My Life

    On this day, I met the love of my life. That date will forever be special to me, as it has affected my life in so many positive ways. We found each other at just the right time for the both of us, and together changed our lives for the better. If it weren’t for a friend’s persuasion, and maybe a little fate, I would not be where I am today. A few months prior to the 30th, I broke up with my girlfriend of 2 and a half years. She decided that I was not enough for her (three times), so I decided…

  • Personal Narrative: Moving To America

    I can still remember that day. If someone asked me, I thought the world was coming to a blazing end. Well, at least my world. It was a very warm and humid spring afternoon. It was unusually warm, especially for this time of the year in Poland, as Poland does not experience humidity, especially not in the spring. Instead, this was the typical type of weather found in the east coast of the United States: hot, humid, and almost unbearable. It was quite a coincidence actually; since this was the…

  • Constantine And Christianity: The Conversion Of Christianity In Rome

    In AD 64, a large fire spread through Rome and nearly destroyed it, crippling its economy and forcing many citizens to flee. Nero, who is often accused of “fiddling while Rome burned,” irresponsibly stood by as much of Rome was consumed. Now in a difficult position, he blamed Christian arsonists. This led to a large, state-sanctioned killing of Christians that continued, on-and-off depending on various historical events and periods of peace, to AD 313, when Constantine ended it with the Edict…

  • Personal Essay: My First Day At Harrow

    excited indeed, as I will have fellows with which I can roughhouse (The Byron Chronology). Today is my first day at Harrow and already I have a tutor by the name of Henry Dury. He is the son of the headmaster and I feel as though I am already making connections to the top. He is quite a dull man, though, and I have perhaps thought to call him Henry Dully as it seems more appropriate for his character. The school is only eleven miles due northwest from town which means on my days off I can…

  • Personal Narrative-Changing Experience Of Lying In Middle School

    my bedroom floor, I cried. It wasn’t one of those angry cries or stress cries, it was a cry that highlighted the hurt and pain that consumed me. I couldn’t comprehend what I did to deserve any of it, so I just cried. No one could hear me. Earlier that day in 2012, I woke up to my regular, everyday routine. From the kitchen, my mom yelled, “Wake up! It’s time to get ready for school!” Grumbling, I got out of my bed and started getting ready. It was a lovely spring morning, and I was almost…

  • Personal Narrative Essay: My First Trip To Lagoon

    brother was already in the kitchen and was asking for his daily drink (milk). I withdrew my stool, opened the fridge and pulled out the milk jug with all my might. Then I climbed up like a monkey to grab a cup ( and sugar, as every child needs sugar with everything.) I poured, it spilled, I poured, it spilled. However, after my third attempt I did it. I gave it to him (after I had some of it) and he savoured it. Then, before I knew it, he was asleep and curled up identical a cat.…

  • Overcoming Grief Reflection

    After reading this book I thought to myself that I have never really experienced anything as traumatic as Sittser, or really anything traumatic compared to his story and the stories of those he had shared. Then, after that thought I then remembered that toward the beginning of the book he explicitly stated that everyone’s pain is different and cannot be compared. In addition, through out the book he consistently spoke about the difference between a fracture and an amputation. He explained that a…
