I am excited to finally leave high school and step out into the real world. Living in the big city seems to open so many doors that inspires my imagination. I dream of a penthouse suite overlooking central park, a lexus, motorcycle, and jeep, influencing millions, and maybe a destined lover by my side. I wonder about the different places I can be, different faces I will meet, and extraordinary days I will experience as the doors of opportunity present themselves to me. I hope to not only achieve my goals but to soak in every bit of moral and life lesson while sprinting towards it. I wish to be the best I can possibly ever be and more.
As a man with food on his table, a shelter over his head, and love from close friends and family I have the obligation to give back to those less fortunate. It was only by chance that God has put me where I am today. Why shouldn’t I live everyday grateful. I am not, after all, poor or without love. I do not go home to abusive parents, suffer from cancer, or live in fear of death from either violence or war. By luck alone, I am without great pain in my life, and for that I am grateful.
Maybe it is time those who are happy and can give back, give back. Happiness is currently scarce. What is abundant is greed, hate, and discrimination. And with that unemployment, violence and war. Changing the world only needs several individuals to change themselves. Jim Rohn said “To have a better life, work on a better you”.
My name is Sylvia Kyungrim Lee in your Music 1001 class, and I have difficulty understanding on what part of the text book you want me to study for each one the test. It will be very helpful if you would email me back exactly on which chapters the upcoming test is going to be on.
Sylvia Kyungrim Lee
My name is Sylvia Kyungrim Lee and I am one of the quietest Asian girls in the class. I moved into the United States after graduating elementary school in Korea and had to attend 6th grade twice as the school system was very different for these two countries. Even though I am very talkative and loud with my Korean friends, I don’t like to speak out loud in front of others in English so much. But I don’t have problem understanding English, so people should talk to me more J
Three main concerns as a freshman at Baruch College are my job, GPA and boyfriend. Since I have been working in Roosevelt Field Mall since my senior year in high school, it is really hard for me to just quit on it, even though it is located very far away from where I am living right now. I am attending a college as a full student during weekdays, and work as a part-timer during weekends, which gives me no time to take rest for myself. Since I am always busy with both the school work and the job, I don’t get much time to meet up with my boyfriend whom I have been dating for about two years now. I am always tired and stressed because of everything that keeps me busy these days, and just wish to have a full day off for myself.
Baruch experiences can be different from my high school experiences as I get to choose which classes I wish to take rather than to take mandatory classes to graduate school. As I started to decide the major that I want to study for the rest of my life, colleges seem to open up good chances for me to experience them beforehand. It is great to know and to talk to other students who are studying for the similar major and exchange good information in more significant ways compared to what I knew in high school.
I think my first year at college is going to change me, and has already changed me, in much significant ways that now I am away from my parents. Even though I thought I was all grown up since I was in 6th grade, my first year in college taught me that there are much more to learn and to experience out there in this world. I have always depended a lot on my parents in doing anything, including making excuses for quitting jobs, or not going to school, but the word “parents” don’t seem to help anymore in making any of the excuses in my life. Few months in college, away from my parents, had really affected me to grow independently and made me realize how young and weak I really was in the previous years.
So…… I bought a puppy just a few days ago with my boyfriend and it’s a Chihuahua. He has really short legs and long back compared to the regular Chihuahuas, but he got a cute face, so I guess that’s fine. It is 5 months old now, and it’s so funny how he has the same birthday with my younger brother. Anyways, his previous owner told me that he knows how to do some tricks but… there is absolutely nothing he knows how to do but just to shiver whenever anyone is near him. It seems like he has a big grudge on this world, mostly on any human-beings, that it took us about two days to have him not shiver and bark whenever we were near. Even though I spent a lot of time playing with him, because he lives at my boyfriend’s house, he seems to only accepted my boyfriend as his owner which makes me lonely sometimes.
Recently this past weekend, my grandfather died. Due to the emotional trauma this has caused me, I have missed the midterm exam while attending his funeral. I’m still pretty riled up after this endeavor, and beseech you to permit me to take a make up. I know you might think of me as quite the awful and inept student, but I will assure you that you will no longer be impertinent of me and my failures after the next few weeks.
Well, as the post title says, I’m Christian Besas. I’m a brother to my sister and two younger brothers, the son to my mother, and I’m also a trustworthy guy to my friends. I don’t have many problems when it comes to being here at Baruch except for the fact that I miss my family and friends back home and that I’m not the greatest student in English and Music. Personally, I don’t think it’s necessary for one interested in business to be in to English or Music anyway. There are already a ton of things different going from a high school setting to a college setting like in Baruch, such as staying in an apartment and getting used to living with people I don’t know, confusing class schedules which I had to adjust to on such short notice, and the freedom from my parents, which I enjoy very much. My first year at college will change me because I’ll be a different person then who I was graduating high school. I thought I was mature now, but after being exposed to the adult world I’ve realized I’ve got a lot more growing up to do.
Good afternoon, professor.
I am in your 11:15 class on Mondays and wednesdays, and I was having trouble figuring out which reading assignments will be included in the upcoming test. I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide a list.
