I admire my parents

There are many people that I admire. Among them are my parents. I admire my parents because I have learned a lot from them. They have taught me to be myself. Parents are the only people who love care about their children. Whenever I need help with something I go to my parents and ask them for help. The reason I go to them is because during their lifetime they have made more mistakes and therefore they have learned from those mistakes and have become more knowledgeable and if I could learn form their mistakes I would be a generation a head of my peers.
"Parents have always been there for us,
have taught us right from wrong,
have taught us God's word,
have taught us his song.
But you have big and generous hearts,
and you are so unselfish and giving,
you make the world a better place,
you make life itself worth living.
You were forty when I was born,
some would say past your prime,
but you gave me everything I needed:Your energy, your skills and your time."

Best time of my life

The best time of my life was when I lived in Peshawer, Pakistan and the best time of my life will be when I go back to Afghanistan. The reason is because my grandparents, uncle, aunts and cousins all live there. The most precisous time of my life was when we won soccer sectional in the year 2003. What made it more important was the fact that we beat our rival in penalty shootout to advance to regionals.
The other good moment I recall is when I got my first car. I could not wait to get my license to drive, although for your information I did fail the permit test 4 times!!!
Another shining moment in my life was when I scored 7 goal in a single day to set a record for the Ball State's soccer field.
The most precious moment I consider is when my brothers and I went to Nebraska to spend our spring break. We lived with our friends. It was awesome. A typical day consisted of paying videogames, watching movies, going out to eat, and playing basketball. Although we only got 4-5 hours of sleep a night I enjoyed every second of it. These have been some of the shining moments of my live and I hope these types of things occur more often.

My Car

Most people can not wait to turn 16 so they can get their license. I was not so lucky because I failed the permit test 4 or 5 times before I could get my license. Once I got my license I bought a car with the money I had earned working during my freshman and sophomore year for Greyhound Bus Lines. I bought a stick shift white 4 door Toyota corolla 97 with 39,000 mileage. I bough it from my uncle for $ 4000.
It is a fact that new drivers are reckless because they don't have much experience driving and most of them speed to test the car in every way possible. If the driver pays for the car they are a little more cautious driving it because they have paid for it. As for those who speed they usually stop speeding after their first ticket. In fact I was speeding February 15, 2005 on McKinley when I was pulled over the police officer said, " Put your hand on the wheel," he thought I had a gun then when he came up close he said, "You were flying!" I replied, "really!" knowing I was going 55 mph at a 30 mph zone. He got my license and registration and asked why I was speeding. I said I had to make it to the prayer. Then he went back and checked my record and found that since I had no points on my record he gave me a warning and said if I were stopped next time by anyone I would be given a ticket. The officer seemed like a nice guy.
I have an advise for you if you get pulled over by a police officer do not tell him that I am paying for your salary, through taxes, because the police will take you to jail!!

'The art of arranging sounds in time so as to produce a continuous, unified, and evocative composition, as through melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre' is the definition of music according to Music dominates our lives. Music makes us afraid during a scary movie, it makes us cry, it makes us dance. It is through music that one is able to express his or her emotions. There are different types of music. Rap, pop, hip-pop, classic, country, ect. I like all types of music so long as there is no cursing involved in it. My favorite rapper is Tu Pac. My favorite song is "I ain't mad at ya." I listen to music when I am doing my homework or when I am driving or watching television. My favorite music instrument is piano. Although I personally cannot play piano but listens to it whenever I can. Music takes all my stress away and relaxes me. My favorite pianist is Yanni.
I also listen to Hindi (Indian) Music; because Hindi songs have a story or a message behind it. The other reason why I like Hindi music is because it rhymes unlike some free flowing music. Musicians spend months try to compose a good song that rhyms and has a message behind it but not all succeed. Music is an extracurricular activity for some; for others its their lives. Nobody is born with the talent of playing any music instrument it is through practice that one becomes successful. Music can not be seen it is supposed to be felt. Music is something we enjoy and must be preserved at all cost.

Pet Peeve

In this blog entry I have compiled a list of my pet peeves. They are getting distracted while studying especially if it is in the library where there is a sign posted saying "Be Quite, Study area." People who drive slow in the highway, especially when they are talking on their cell phone. When writing a paper for a class and you get done writing and you try to save it on a disk and the disk says "not enough space" and you click "ok" an the computer freezes and you loose all the writing and have to rewrite the paper over again. Browsing the web is always fun because you never know where you'll end up. The unfortunate thing is there are lots of pop ups that make the trip pleasant. Being very thirsty and not having change for the vending machines, and not having small enough bills to get change with is the worst thing that can happen to one. The thing I hate the most is when you have saved up enough money to buy something you really want debts pop up. A true life event that has happened to me is I have gotten stuck on campus after busses and escort have stopped running and wanting to go home. These are my pet peeve. I love it don't you!!!!!
