The first job I ever had was a life changing experience for me. In the summer of 2009, I worked at a nursing home / rehabilitation center. At first I wasn’t thrilled about the job but since it was close to my house I decided to take it. I expected it to be a boring and annoying job considering I would have to deal with the elderly all day. Before working at this job, I had this notion of how the elderly were just grumpy and mean to everyone but after working at the nursing home my perspective completely changed.
My job at the nursing home was to keep the elderly company by talking to them, playing games with them, running errands with them and much more. My first day on the job, I remember baking with them and I had an amazing time. Everyone was really friendly and talkative. It was unexpected for me to enjoy myself so much especially when I went into the job with such a negative impression of what working there would be like.
Everyday we would do something different with the elderly which made my experience even better. I especially enjoyed talking one on one with them because I got a chance to know them personally. I met people who were World War II veterans, Vietnam War veterans and models. I learned so much from them through their stories and personal life experiences and lessons that they’ve shared with me. They had so much advice to give and so many stories to tell that there wasn’t a day that I was bored when I worked.
The best part about working was I never saw it as work because I had so much fun. Work was actually a place where I could relax and not have a care in the world. From working at a nursing home, I’ve come to appreciate the elderly a lot more.
HI, professor Dee
I missed the midterm exam due to an illness.Can you give me some suggestions to make it up. Thanks
Dear Professor _______,
I am having trouble with the homework that you have assigned for us due on Wednesday. I’m having a little difficulty relating what you have taught us in class to the assignment. May I please hand in the assignment later after I clarify any possible misunderstanding that I might have with you?
Political Science, VC 3160, Monday/Wednesday
I am Svyatoslav Balaban but everyone calls me Slav. I am a normal college kid, nothing out of the ordinary. I love playing soccer and basketball, listening to rap and hip pop, and sleep on my free time. I am a hard working individual, quiet, and smart; I stutter occasionally but this is what defines me and I don’t mind. I am a unique person and you’ll never find anyone else like me, trust me. College so far hasn’t been a breeze and there are a couple of worries. First I’m afraid of failing English because I already got two C+’s and I really can’t understand poetry. When the poet says it there’s a sunset I think the night is starting and not that love is ending. I am also afraid of failing calculus because I do not understand anything the teacher is saying or going over, math is definitely not my best subject anymore. My other concern is picking bad classes for next semester so I have to start thinking about that soon. What I feel will make Baruch better then High School is participating in school. My senior year I just came to school and left after my day was done, didn’t want to spend too much time in school, hoping next semester of being a bit more outgoing with all the clubs and activities. I feel that my first year of college will change me because it will make me more organized and will make me do homework on free time rather then last minute because what I’m doing now isn’t working out too well for me.

I am having difficulty with the reading that you assigned to us in class. May you please explain the reading to me as I am unable to answer the question that go along it. Thank you in advance Svyatoslav Balaban
A monologue a monologue, how the hell do I start a monologue? I have been on my laptop for an hour now and this is what I get…. pathetic. I hope this at least counts as a monologue, it would really suck to fail freshman seminar and take it again in 3 years, I think it’s called freshmen seminar for a reason… I don’t think there’s senior seminar at Baruch. Now what to talk about what to talk about I still don’t know, guess I like assignments where I’m told what to write about and not this free writing. Writing about not knowing what to write about, damn I’m so creative… not. Now I’m hoping this is long and good enough to count, I really don’t need another failing grade this semester; I think I’ve gotten enough of them these past 2 weeks.
Subject: a homework question
I don’t really understand the readings you gave us. I’m not sure how they relate to the question I have to answer. Could you please explain the reading for me. Thank you in advance.
Andy Lantigua: SOC1005 BRTA
A. I’m andy lantigua, someone that likes listening to music in his free time, and loves spicy food. I’m a student at Baruch college and I tend to be impulsive.
B. I’m worried about passing my calculus class because it’s one of my harder classes and it’s also one of the classes I need to do well in for the major I’m planning on taking. I’m also worried about managing my time so that I can do well in my classes and be able to participate in clubs and other things that interest me. I’m also concerned about my sociology class because it’s a class that I have trouble focusing in.
C. What makes my college experience different from my high school experience is that I have more freedom, so my accomplishments and mistakes fall on me alone.
D. My freshman year wil help me mature and take on more responsiblity for myself
Scenario: You are having difficulty figuring out a specific homework exercise.
Hi Professor, I am having trouble figuring out how to do problem number 5 on page 78 of the calculus textbook. I would really appreciate it if you could explain to me how to do the problem. Thank you so much.

Excuse my awkwardness
Spent my whole life on this
Tryin to go to college
Just hope it’s not a hit or miss
Yeah the future may be enigmatic
And they tell me life is tragic
But I just laugh with all my might
Because in times of darkness
I’m the one who’s got the flashlight
That’s right just here with my whole block
Tik tok tick tok
We can’t stop looking at the clock
Because we’re sitting here in class
Waitin on time to pass
Hoping our determination
Doesn’t shatter like glass
