My essay right now: I'm having trouble answering #4 because the professor is so picky as to hoow your describing the person. any ideas? I need to elaborate more on the essay aswell but im stuck, help!!?
Throughout life I have met quite a lot of people that have impacted me in many different ways , both negative and positive. I have to say positive impacts have stuck with me the most. People will come and go but the ones that stay, well they stay and help you mold your life into the perfect sculpture of art. We run into these people and they change our views on life for the better. My friend, Maria is the person who has impacted me in the most positive ways throughout our friendship. She has been there to support me in my many decisions, whether they were smart or foolish ones. It is due to my friend that I am the ambitious, responsible, and respectful person that I am today.
Maria and I have been friends since grade school. We had the same elementary school teachers so since then we started hanging out and talking. I later found out that she lived in some apartments around the corner from mine, which brought us to be closer friends. Our friendship went throughout every school year , since we lived in the same neighborhood till this day, we went to the same school from elementary to high school, and even still go to the same college today. Although we're best friends and have grown up toether we are totally different people.
Different is defined as not alike or not being the same as each other, well we are just that. Maria is different personality wise, she's very out going , out spoken, isn't afraid to open up or talk to people about problems. Whereas I'm the total opposite of her, I'm very reserved, quiet, and totally shy when it comes to talking to people I don't know. Together we balance each other out. She has thought many tactics as to not being shy.
Growing up with this particular person has been a roller coaster. I have learned so much from her. Meaning I have learned how to be more out there. In regards to speaking out, I was always the one who just sat there very shy however she has thought me how to become more pen minded towards things and be less timid.
My friend Maria means
People come in and out of my life all the time. Those who impacted me in a positive or negative way were sent my way for a reason. They shaped how I am today and in a way have impacted how I have turned out to be.
