To tell you the truth, I am mostly afraid of the dark. Imagine going to sleep with no lights on and suddenly, someone or something is in your room. It reaches out its hand and grabs your head. It is almost as if a shadow is touching you. You don’t know who this is or why does it want you. Every shadow has many mysterious creepy figures that can scare you and you can’t go to sleep because of that. These figures can illustrate a monster from your closet or a burglar appearing right in front of your window. That is what I am afraid of.
I am very happy when I hang out with my friends because they are very special to me. With my friends by my side, I feel like I can accomplish anything. I am also happy when there is peace and quiet. My motto is “Peace and Quiet is the Best.” I always hate noise that irritates me. I feel like an old man who is being disturbed by young children. One way to enjoy myself is when I am sailing by the ocean. I can feel the breeze of the wind whistling in my ears as I am riding my boat and see dolphins jumping out of the water to make harmonizing sounds. These sounds calm my mind and I love hearing them sing as well.
I believe that whatever path I choose as my career is mostly important to me. To have a career is to have a happy life and to fulfill what you dreamed of becoming. I want to be an accountant but I am not sure if I will get the chance. I know that my goals will change as the years go by. College is the place where every student’s dreams become reality. The career they choose is the career that they will enjoy for the rest of their life.
So far, college is fun place to be and I can explore new and exciting opportunities right in front of me. The only drawback is that the classes are a little tough especially with my Sociology and Calculus professors. My Sociology professor is giving my class a midterm on 6 chapters and the worst part is that 3 out 6 essays from these chapters will be on the midterm. This has gone beyond the level of difficulty. I don’t think I will be able to pass this midterm because who can write 3 random essays that we don’t know about or haven’t spent much time studying on. Furthermore in Calculus, our professor gave us this midterm we had and I felt nervous when taking that test. He said that he will take your paper away if you look up. To me, I think he is like Medusa who turns us into statues and takes our paper away if we look up. I mean there are a lot of difficult teachers who expect the best out of you and you better prepare for what is about to be given to you.
A moment I felt embarrassed was when I was 8 years old in elementary school. I thought I was Superman and I felt like I was unstoppable. So I said to myself that I can bash through this wall that was right in front of me. I decided to run with full force straight towards the wall and then as a result, I hit my head against the wall and fell to the floor. That was the most embarrassing thing I have ever done and I still remember it to this day.
One thing I can think of was when I faced my fears of the water. I was always afraid that I might drown and won’t be able to hold my breath. So then I had a swimming coach when I was 10 and he would always teach me how to tackle my fears of the water. It was through these teachings that I felt brave to face my fears. I decided to test my courage by sailing on the rivers of a sailing school I joined. I was so amazed at how brave I am when I was riding the waves that I felt the water is nothing to be afraid of. I said to myself I can tackle even the mightiest waves of the sea and I will still be standing against it with all my strength.
One song that can describe me would definitely be “Crawling” by Linkin Park because I always feel like I am in some sort of trauma and confusion that I can’t get rid of these pains. There is this feeling that you want to get rid of and you just can’t seem to be free of it.
My biggest challenge would be time management. You have to put a lot of time and effort balancing between school, home, and work that you can’t seem to plan ahead of your schedule. There is always this and that and I can’t afford to get some relaxation around at college. What I would give for some peace and quiet right about now.
I enjoy playing sports and attending many events. In events, I get to hang out and talk to many new and exciting people and we all have fun getting to know one another. I am excited to meet more new people at many more new events at college. I like playing sports because this shows how active I am and I love to exercise. I need to maintain my shape and be fit so that I can become a healthy person.
