My Personal Experience Learning to Golf - Many people take up Golf thinking that it is easy, after all, how hard can it be to hit a little white ball with a stick. This thinking evaporates the first time they step onto a driving range and attempt to hit that little white ball. Golf is not easy by any stretch of the imagination. My experience with golf began in May of 2005 when friends came to stay with us; my wife informed me that I would have to take Roy, her friend’s husband Golfing. I had not been to a driving range (since I was in my teens) and I had never played golf on a course before....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Personal Experience] 940 words

Personal Values and my Air Force Experience - I was only nine years old, but I can almost still feel the bitter cold and the excitement in the thin air while sitting in the stands in the Rocky Mountains. The rivalry between the two Service Academies was at an all time high as the coveted Commander in Chiefs trophy was still up for grabs. Although the battle ensuing on the field between the two foes was formidable, it was the battle upon what to do with my life that was of greater consequence. The outcome of the game is now forgotten but the impression that the young servicemembers left would forever be etched in the back of my mind....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Personal Experience] 963 words

Personal Narrative: My Peace Corps Experience - It was the same thought process almost every morning on my way to work. There I was, a recent college graduate driving to a low-paying position that I was certainly overqualified for.

Feelings of inadequacy, fear, and self-doubt would overcome me.

Personal Experience in Raising Children - A bond that a child has with their parents can never be match. The love a parent gives their child is priceless. But I believe that children, once grown up, owe nothing to the parents who raised them. I say this because even animals, which lack reason, provide love to their child without a need of repayment. I, also, have a sense of experience raising my brothers and sisters and can say they owe me nothing. Finally, a parent should provide care, love, and protection of harm for their child. If the parents do not raise their child with care, love, and protection then its up to the child to decide whether he or she will raise their child in a similar matter or not....   [tags: humans, animal kindom, parents] 922 words
