Success - 776 words
"Success is counted sweetest/By those who ne'er succeed" Emily Dickinson Since the beginning of my life I have been studying. In the early years of my childhood I didn't quite understand what my role was all about. I always wondered why is it that I have to go to school everyday even on Saturday because my mom said that it is good to be around smart people. When I was growing up I found the answer by myself.

"Only 25% of adults have a great deal of confidence in the people running education, according to the General Social Survey, down from 49% in 1974" (Russel 4). A lot of discussions have been held to find the best ways to improve teaching methods.

School Uniforms A Cheap Educational Reform Or Purely Effective - 1,522 words
Throughout the history of dress codes in school, many districts have toyed with the issue or whether school uniforms would create a more unified educational environment or perhaps only cause chaos and complaint. As a graduating senior, I do not believe school uniforms will have any effect on the unity or safety of our school, they would only cause problems. I feel that there are several alternatives to achieving the so-called benefits of wearing school uniforms without wearing them at all. It is understandable that in school districts without uniforms, it is the duty of school authorities to enforce a dress code within schools. Courts have generally upheld the attempts of school authorities ...

Ice Cream - 1,008 words
Of the numerous jobs that I have had in the last few years, only one has maintained a lasting hold on me. I return again and again to the call of serving the same gratifying, palatable treat, that amazing creation called ice cream. With the experience I have had, I could have aspired for a more professional working environment than Frosty's Frozen Yogurt or Baskin Robins. Yet, for some unknown reason, I am strangely drawn to this type of work. Consequently, seems fitting that ice cream would be the perfect metaphor for the characteristics and accomplishments that I embody. If I look at a hot fudge sundae, I see several layers, each unique with its own taste that all do a part in representing ...
