It’s funny to see how people react when I tell them that the show How I Met Your Mother changed my life, and I wish I could see the look on your face after reading that. But while it may sound weird, or even a little childish, it’s 100% true that How I Met Your Mother gave me the confidence I have today in regard to the social aspect of my life.
Growing up, I was always pressured by my dad to get a girlfriend. Now most guys will say that their dad laid a few jokes or two on them when they got to high school about getting a girlfriend, but that’s not what I’m talking about. No, what I’m talking about started in 6th grade, I came home one day to my dad asking, “So it’s been a few weeks, have you met any girls you want to date yet?” This... View More »

‘I Can Date Whoever I Want.’ Instead, I turned to movies and TV shows to escape. I’ve always loved watching tv shows and movies, because they provide a sort of escape from reality that are much more affective to me than books are. I eventually got over it, but I never regained the confidence to ask out another girl.
Finally, high school hit, the supposed golden years that I’d been hearing so much about. I’d grew 5 inches, lost 20 pounds, and was looking like a whole new person than the “200 pound-Shrek” that asked out a girl way out of his league. Yet, with the added height, did not come added confidence. I was still hesitant in flirting with girls, even if they showed an interest in me due to the fear of not wanting to be rejected like I did when I was in 6th grade. As I was finishing up my freshman year of high school, I swear to God the prettiest girl I’ve seen to this day walked by my friend and I. This girl, blew Allie straight out of the water. As my friend and I walked out of our Algebra class, he was complaining about how old our teacher was, and halfway through his thought I cut him off. “Dude, who was that girl who just walked by us?” Knowing everyone he said, “Oh that’s Nicole, she’s in my honors bio class. She’s a pretty cool chick, I guess. Anyway-” Then he went right back to talking smack about our math teacher. Of course, I wasn’t paying attention though, no sir, I was already planning how on Earth I was going to meet this girl. But every time I wanted to ask her name, or introduce myself, I turned into that chubby 6th grader I used to be. Scarred, nervous ...

    The ethical issue I will be discussing is IVF, in relation to the Christian religions Catholic and Anglican. IVF is used in cases of infertility –where the woman’s fallopian tubes are absent or blocked, the men’s sperm count is low, or the couple’s infertility is unexplained. It is an assisted reproductive technology in which one or more eggs are fertilized outside a female’s body.

    Tolerance

    Ice breakers almost always include the question of, “Where are you from?” and having grown up in Naperville, Illinois, whenever I bring that up to people, I often get the response, “Oh wow, wasn’t that named one of the country’s most mean towns to live in?”. That question is usually followed by the immediate judgement that I am a mean, rich, shallow person with little regard for other people. Now, having grown up in Naperville, I can personally attest that many of the people who live there are, well, mean. I don’t know their back stories so I try my hardest not to judge, but many are extremely

    Sam Cooke In a class titled History of Rock ‘n Roll, one would think that the course would cover almost every major artist who participated in or influenced the rise of the genre. However, due to time constraints and personal preferences, every artist cannot be given the credit they deserve in the proper way—at least not all in one semester! That is okay, though. In this paper I plan on introducing an artist whose career and influence on the creation of the rock n’ roll era both was tremendous in his own right. Sam Cooke was a revolutionary artist who in some instances set the preceden

    When Politics, Profits, and Education Collide No Child Left Behind No Child Left Behind What comes to mind when one hears the words “no child left behind?” Perhaps one pictures a family of 12 who left one of the children at the gas station during a restroom break - or a school bus that arrived at the zoo field trip with 35 first-grade students but left with only 34!
