The scariest thing that have ever happened in my life.
I remember two or one years ago, I have this scary dream about spider. It was a BIG spider about my size but maybe a little bit shorter and rounder than me. It was obviously black and furry. Ew. And the spider was not walking crawling like how the usually but it was standing with only two legs.
It happened in my class during form 4. The spider was standing at the back of the class with its other legs up like this *action* and stared at me while saying something that I don’t really remember but it clearly “I know you hate us and you going to kill me and now I’m going to eat you alive”. That’s when I started running furiously.
As you all aware that I hate spider, I think those spider knows that I hate them and they might hate me too. It is a phobia that’s hard to overcome even how hard I try to convince myself that it won’t and attack me and chase me to death and eat me. Two years ago, when I was in form 4, I met my all-time enemy, a spider. It was almost as big as me and has really black and furry hair all around its body. The spider has two big round black eyes that will make you shiver every time you stare at them but weirdly, the spider has the head of a human. That’s weird. I met the spider at the back of my classroom. It was blurry but I remember vividly what the spider said, “You scare of us aren’t you? You hate us and you going to kill us but I will definitely hunt you and eat you alive”, then its start to chase me using only two feet and I run for my life. There are many times that the spider almost caught me but I always managed to run away. Unfortunately, after running for miles the spider trapped me between its arms. I started to have cold sweat, screaming and crying. The spider started to spit out its spider web and round it around by body and then BOOM! A knock on my door woke me up from the cruel dream world. A dream, a spider, a night, is the scariest things that have ever happened...
...Throughout your life you will have many experiences that will change you forever. While some of them are small, some experiences are so great that you will never forget the exact date and time they occurred. The most life-shaping experience I haveever had was the birth of my son. This event changed mylife. I love my son dearly and his birth will always be the best thing that has ever taken place in mylife. After my son was born, a lot of things changed for me. Most couples are excited when they receive the news that they are expecting. I was to become a single teen mom and this was something that would not only affect me but everyone around me. Although every child is a blessing, I was not confident I was ready for a child and had to consider my options before deciding how a new baby would alter my teenage life. I went through many transformations and overcame many obstacles to get where I am today. This life-changing experience remains to be what brought me to where I am today.
In the summer of 2006 I was a sophomore in high school. Over summer break I had obtained a job at the local youth center. I also had a job lined up at the parks and recreation department. I was very happy that at the age I was I...
...day after Thanksgiving. I remember being woken up in a big rush. My father was panicking. I didn’t know what was going on. I had been rushed to the hospital and on the way there he told me what had just happened and I was just flabbergasted.
Thanksgiving is a great time of year. Me being a bigger guy, I always loved it mainly for the delicious home cooked food. Now don’t get me wrong I loved seeing my extended family but hey who doesn’t love food. We have a family tradition of visiting my aunt’s house in good ole’ Rainbow City, Alabama. Which for those of you who don’t know where Rainbow City is, it’s just outside of Gadsden, Alabama. Sometimes we’d stay there overnight and sometimes we’d travel back home that night, but it was a great time regardless of whether we stayed or left.
Being 6 years old at the time I didn’t quite know why my mom and sister always left very early that next morning, it was just something I knew that happened. I remember thinking that I thought it was like a national mother/daughter shopping day because my dad never went, he stayed home with me. I was kind of upset because they always came back with so many bags and I thought, “Wow, they didn’t get me one thing? Not even just one little thing.” Mainly because like any other 6 year old I wanted something when someone else got something. I remember thinking...

The Scariest Night of MyLife
In April 1984, I experienced what I believe to be the scariest night of mylife. At the time I was living in the Philippines, where my husband was stationed at Clark Air Force Base. We lived in a small two bedroom apartment located off base at Friendship Gate. At each end of the hallway was a bedroom, separated by a bathroom. At night when I couldn’t sleep, I would move to the spare bedroom and read or do word search puzzles so I wouldn’t keep my husband awake.
On the night of my experience, I was sitting in the spare bedroom reading late at night. My bed began to shake a little. It was so subtle that I didn’t think much of it. When my bed began to move across the floor, I realized it was a major earthquake. I managed to crawl out of bed and get into the hallway. I had to place my hands on each wall in order to walk to the main bedroom where my husband was sleeping. Trying to walk during the earthquake reminded me of trying to walk across the floor of a funhouse at the State Fair. Swaying back and forth, side to side making it hard to maintain my balance. When I finally reach the bedroom where Larry was sleeping, I jumped in the middle of the bed screaming for him to get up. When I finally...

Still has problems such as swelling of legs, blood clot in leg---she has good days and bad day where she does not feel the best but overall she is still living a very functional lifestyle and doing most of the things she wants to do.
3. Retirement to me is when you are able to NOT work at a 8-5 job, being free to go and come as you please. Being able to travel, spend time with family and friends. Hopefully be financial stable.
I do not see myself retiring when I am at the retiring age. I have a 401K but would like to have more invested in it before I retire. Also with the fact I am going back to school in my late 40s means I will be working...
...Life isn't a game that you can win or lose, but that doesn't mean that there aren't ways to make your life more fulfilling and make you more content. The great thing is that you can make changes to your life and your attitude about your life that will benefit you in the long run, and you don't have to rely on what life will throw at you. Winning at life really just means learning how to be content and fulfilled, and fortunately there are ways to do that!
The people you allow in your life can either shore you up during the difficult times, or they can create a drag on your mental and physical well being. Scientists have found that people with a strong, healthy circle of friends tend to be happier and live longer. Social connections, not money or prestige, are what truly matter. Only have people in your life who make you the best version of yourself.
Some places to find friends are community events that are important to you: social justice groups, religious communities, volunteering opportunities, a class to learn a new skill. The internet can also be a good place to meet people with similar values and interests and social media has made it easier to stay in contact with people all around the world.
Don't forget about your friends. This is especially true during the first stages of a new romantic...
...authors themselves put it, "They Say/ I Say". Although some people believe that, Graff and Birkenstien insist that they help. In sum then, their view is that it can.
I have mixed feelings. In my view, the types of templates that the authors recommend can sometimes help. For instance, this is not to say that it helps. In addition, I agree that it can. Some might object of course on the grounds that it can help. Yet I would argue that templates can increase english literature. Overall, then, I believe the use of templates-an important point to make given thoughts.
Yet that doesn't mean that my views our the same as others. Many peoples mind are different, if all thought the same there would be no use of teaching sense there are no new knowledge. Many people take time to enable themselves to learn new ways of the literature. Some are faster and quicker learners. Yet it is the dedication of the learner to discipline themselves to learn
and accept new knowledge in them. Some myhave difficulty learning a new subject, especially if they weren't raised by it. With the template scenario it gives many options for people to say in a conversation, allowing it to be an optional exercises. Allowing you minds be free of nervousness and stress.
To many others it depends on our life style if we can accumulate knowledge from college and learn a...
...Sometimes the scariestthings in life can be your surroundings because you never know when something can go wrong. I learned to value everything I have these days because you never know when you might lose something or somebody, that’s irreplaceable.
It was mid June of 1996 and I was living in an eight story building in Harlem in New York City. It was one of the sunniest days of the summertime. It was from this day at age nine when I realized that life is not a dream it is reality. Beautiful and sunny, not too humid- the weather was all I wanted it to be. I had woken up and the first thought that came to my mind was “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood!” as I looked outside and saw my friends laughing and playing across the street at the basketball courts. I slept in because I was on vacation from school. As I was getting out of bed I looked around my room; it looked as usual neat, colorful but simple. I kept it organized because I always had friends coming around. I can’t really remember of what I wore that day but I know that my favorite cousin Taje and my twin sister Lucy and I were all matching had the same outfit on. I quickly got all ready and looked outside and my cousin Taneasha and Taje and my twin sister Lucy were playing hopscotch by the courts. I ran down from my seventh...
...It was a Friday night. The full moon was shining through the bare branches making scary shadows on our path as we walked. A cool light wind was blowing sending leaves dancing noisily in the forest floor. I remember thinking to myself that the night, was the scariest night ever, and I wanted to ask Scott to go back and take the long way through the road, but I was afraid that he would laugh at me and make jokes about me for being scared of the dark.
The path we walked on would take us past the park and end at the pub above called The Bull. We chose this path because it would be the shorter walk to the pub. We were feeling bored and went out for a drink or two. A walk that led us into the forest. As we walked past the park a group of teenage youths came jumping out from behind of some bushes and trees. My heart was in my throat and I felt Scott give a scared jump. "Oi, what the hell do you think you're doing!" Shouted Scott and swore at them. They laughed and went to find their gang. My face was still a look of terror and when Scott turned to see if I was all right, tan the youths swore at him back and were just standing there, Scott started chasing them. Then an older man appeared from the forest and pushed Scott so hard that sent him stumbling backwards, over a log into a big pile of leaves from a nearby tree. I was scared and I didn't know what to do so I ran thought the forest where I hid hoping to...
