The people in my life

Modern-day society's concept of personal identity can be allotted into the emotional and logical categories. More specifically, our practical, physical needs versus our emotional needs. Thus, a person is still an animal that requires food, water, shelter, an animal with intrinsic survival instincts. But a person is also an animal that has evolved complex emotions. The struggle humanity will always have is being able to balance logic and emotion. A person is an animal who is battling the direction of evolution. And yet, a person is also a life that battles with its own concepts of reality and personal identity. Personal identity grows in as many directions as its life allows until one either strikes somewhat of a balance or dies trying. Humankind cant continue their lives without desires. If one wants to be happy, surely, he has to discover his best desires that provide him a happy life. Some of these desires that help to continue our lives can be acceptance in our relationships, a good family life and strong social relations. Trying to satisfy these desires has a great meaning to achieve happiness for me. Striving for emotional perfection in ordinary people throughout the life cycle, a person undergoes many changes. One matures both physically and emotionally as time passes. Emotional growth is quite often more difficult than physical growth. A person must realize his faults and admit to them before he can develop emotionally, while one does not need any self-analyzation to develop physically. To start with, however embarrassed I am about this desire of mine, I have an obsession to expect people to accept my thoughts and manners in every situation. Yes, this is not a good characteristic and sometimes makes me an antipathic person but trying to be accepted by someone can give you happiness, too. Besides, if you can manage to make someone love you knowing and accepting all about you, I think that is the absolute happiness.

Furthermore, it seems to me that family is the basic source of happiness. Certainly, I cant always be a good girl and sometimes I make them upset but I cant stand seeing them upset. Therefore, I try to do whatever necessary to make them happy. Consequently, when I see happy family faces, I feel deeply happy. Thirdly, to have friends is one of the most meaningful aspects of life. I believe that one should have three very warm friends at least. For example, I cant bear loneliness and if I couldnt share all my heart with these warm f riends, I believe that I could never be happy. As a consequence, if you feel like me, it will be worth improving your close relationships in order to be happy. I have realized recently that friends should not have any affect at all on the decisions made in life. This does not vary whether you are a middle school student, college student, or even a grown and mature adult. Making a wrong decision at the wrong time can have many negative affects on life. A wrong decision might only affect you temporarily or it could stay with you for the rest of your life. It could cost you a job or could keep you from getting into the college you dreamed of going to your whole life. It is just too much to risk. In a way, decisions should be made only by the person making them. You should always think of how they will affect yourself and others. Never let a friend or anyone else force you to make a choice that could wind up hurting yourself or anybody. Always be careful, it could be something that could stick with you for life. Even think about how it could affect your family and friends. Would they be embarrassed by this choice? Would they be proud to tell other people about you and your relation to this? Decision making can be seen as a skill. Many people view it as an easy everyday thing, but to some it is harder. It is not always naturally apparent to some. Some are born leaders and easily make decisions and some just are not. Just make sure to evaluate the situation previous to making a decision that could hurt you or others. In certain situations, it is ok to get some advice from friends when making a decision. Just think it through and make sure it is really the best thing for you too. Friends dont

always keep in mind what is best for you. Sometimes they dont realize how i t can affect you and they dont even do this on purpose. It just comes as a natural habit. I can even admit seeing myself doing it sometimes. They just dont know what is best for you. That should only be for you to know. Often this picture will fade when having fun, but make sure you always have it at reach in the back of your head. You never know when something could go wrong and ruin your life and opportunities. It might seem that when you are young there is nothing to worry about, but really everything you do affects your future. Not only because of your actions at that point but by getting use to making careless decisions some people never grow out of the habit. Before you know it, at 21 they are still the same people they were when they were 14. In some cases, it is ok to be a kid. Its not like no one has their moments. There are some excusable times where you can get away with a wrong decision but dont get use to it. So far my life has been filled with a great deal of influences, experiences and opportunities. Have you ever been influenced by some important person that helped you be the person that you are today? I have been. The people that have had influence on me are the most important humans beings, my family. I could begin the book of my life with a picture of my parents. They are important because they helped in my development. Also, they gave me the things that I needed to grow up in the moment that I needed and they still gave me everything that I needed to become somebody in the future. Among these things is the education that I have received all in my life, my basic needs like food, clothes, medicine, a place to live, and the most important thing, the love. Like for example, by being there when I needed somebody to talk to and giving me speeches when I do something wrong. Also, they care for me when I am sick and they give me the necessary things to get better. They teach me good values like how to behave, to respect other people, and to share with other people. Sometimes they push me in certain directions and have high expectations for me, but now I really appreciate everything they have taught me. I understand why they do certain things and it is because my parents want the best for me. On certain

occasions I get mad, but later appreciate their words of wisdom and understand. My parents are wonderful. Now, about the rest of my family, my sister, all I can say is that she is wonderful too. With her I have learned to share, to have fun, and to understand different points of view in different situations. She is younger than me, but that doesn't matter because sometimes people think that because they are older they know everything and that is not true, we can learn from those younger than us too. Also I have shared moments in which we laughed, or we get sad, but there are always moments that I will remember. In conclusion families made the difference in many of the situations that life gives you and without them you would be unable to give the love and support to your children need which they need to become mature and responsible adults. Thanks to my family today I can said all of these things to other people.

The Arts

When looking into society once can be influenced by a number of issues. These issues can include art. Art is work that is put together by an individual. It is a true creative act that is used as a form of expression from the artist. Art is inspiring and can influence a society. Art work is seen through acting, music, and pictures. Firstly, one can see art through acting. Acting is a performance in which one disguises themselves and become a different individual. Acting is an expression of oneself. This act can be seen in plays, on Television and in movies. Acting is important to a society for it provides an escape route as well as a form of entertainment. Without acting there would be more boredom. Many rely on going to plays as well as watching television. Without these forms of art, it would be difficult for one to stay entertained. Acting is a form of art that is important to a society. Secondly, music is a form of art. Song writers and singers use their talent to make music. Music is in spring and can influence others. Music can be seen as a form of entertainment also. It is constantly being played on the radio as well as clubs and concerts. Many listen to music to become entertained. For some, listening to an inspired song can effect their views, can also influence into reaching goals. Music is a well known form of art. Lastly, art can be seen in art galleries. Some forms of art that are usually seen are sculptures, paintings, and also photographs. All these forms are made uniquely and by persons. It is the fact that it is made by thought and made by a person that is called art. Sculptures of people and objects can be inspiring and educational to many. Paintings and photographs can contrast a mood in which can inspire a person. These forms of art are very important to society. If there were no galleries nor any forms of art than this world would be plain. Art forms surround society making it a more interesting, creative place.

Art can be seen in many places, it is everywhere one turns; billboards, houses, business buildings, outside. Art can be seen in many categories the media, television, movies, songs, and also art galleries. All these categories can inspire one and can also contribute a way of entertainment. They are all used creatively and take away mush plainness. The arts will always be around in some way, and will always be here through futures to come. It is the way one recognizes art, which will determine whether or not it will remain important. Now, I am going to present you my short poem, for which I have been inspired by poetry, love and my dream:

A beautiful dream

Last night he came into my dream. Again! I saw it in his black eyes, he was going to tell me something, But his mouth couldnt say a word. His strong hands hug me like it was the last moment in our lives. The happiest moment! I felt love like never before or since. My love came into my dream.
