Rolling over to the edge of my bed I started gazing lazily at my small and cluttered room. My eyes pass around my room and over the different girls in bikini posters that multiple friends have given me over the years until I reach my alarm clock, seven-thirty. My job as a professional bale piler begins at eight so I rush through my shower, wolf down my miniscule breakfast, and drive to work.

Essay about The Endless Battle with Prison Gangs - The Endless Battle with Prison Gangs As the years pass, the rate of gang affiliated crimes in the Unites States has progressed extensively, accumulating more inmates into our major prisons doubling the maximum occupancy that the jails can hold.

Mama Day and Daughters of the Dust Essay - Mama Day and Daughters of the Dust For emigrants of any country it is difficult to maintain the individual culture of their homeland while assimilating to the ways of the new country they have entered.

Essay about My First Day of College - “College is nothing but high school with ashtrays.” My friend Ron left me with this original piece of advice before I left for college on August 30th. In the weeks following, this cliché would seem prophetic. It would not, however, be accurate today. It was September 1st, and I was officially a college freshman. All my dreams were to be realized. The halls would be paved with intellectuals, and the walls would be plastered with philosophers. State College was my Ellis Island. It would be a far cry from my high school, whose halls were paved with punks and whose walls were plastered with simpletons....   [tags: Autobiography Essay, Personal Narrative] 771 words

The First Day of School Essay - The First Day of School My first actual school day at CIS was bewildering to say the least. Everything was hectic and in chaos from the nearly extreme tense atmosphere to the poorly organised day plans handed to each student that walked through the large door way. This was different from my first experience with CIS mainly because this time I had to navigate myself around, what seemed at the time, an endless labyrinth of twisting corridors and class rooms. My first impression of the school itself was hot it was partitioned in different layers based on which year you were in, unlike my pervious school where everything was mixed up....   [tags: essays research papers] 726 words

Modern Day Law Essays - Modern Day Law At first glance of this assignment I noticed that I would be required to be engaged in a mass amount of television viewing and thought to myself that Professor Radican must have read my thoughts and was sympathetic to my daily dose of television needs. After reviewing the requirements of the assignment, I found that this was not the case. Television to me is a "magic box", a conduit to the outside world, accessing hundreds and hundreds of programs all ranging from the refined and intellectually stimulating to the far end of the spectrum of grotesque absurdity....   [tags: Papers] 1720 words
