My First Crush Moya Morgan ENG 121 Lesa Hadley April 25, 2016

My First Crush Once, I saw this amazingly handsome guy at Eisenhower High School in my physical education class during my sophomore year. I did not know Miguel's name, and I was too shy to walk up to him and introduce myself. Over time, after noticing him in class and around campus, I got to witnessed more of his beauty, attributes, and how romantic he can be. It was my junior year when my best friend, Tamera, and I joined show choir. The moment I set foot in that choir room, I saw my crush, Miguel, and time slowed down. He was a beautiful person I have ever seen in my life; Miguel was the most attractive guy that I have ever seen. Tamera had already known him, so she introduced me to him. He is about 5'9, an inch taller than me and has an ivory bronze complexion. His hair is the color of ebony and wavier than an ocean on a stormy day. His exotic Salvadorian eyes are the color of milk chocolate with eyelashes so long they curl at the end. His nose is pointy, and his lips are lusciously rosy pink. He has a deep timber in his voice, and a smile that can make me feel like a million and one butterflies are racing in my tummy. His smile brightens up my day as the glorious sun does to a blooming sunflower. Miguel is a real gentleman. He is sweet, kind, caring, respectful, and trustworthy. A week before our homecoming dance, Miguel kindly asked me if he could walk with me. My heart pumped, and I could not believe that he wanted to walk me home. I could not catch my breath at the moment, but I calmly said, "Yes." While walking, I was looking at him, and it was as if I was trapped in his good looks, and suddenly, he grabbed my hands and looked me straight in the eyes and asked me, "Will you go to the homecoming dance with me?" I was so speechless all I did was nod.…...

Cadbury Crush Case

...Cadbury Crush Case StudyCadbury Schweppes is an important player in the American soft drink market where American consumers drink more soft drinks than tap water. In conjunction with population growth and rising per capita consumption there was an estimated $43 billion in retail sales in 1989. However, trend data suggests that sales of diet drinks accounted for a large portion of the overall growth of carbonated drink sales in the 1980’s with supermarket sales the key to successful soft drink marketing. Despite being the fourth largest soft drink marketer in the United States, 71.4% of the total market was produced by Coca Cola, PepsiCo or Dr. Pepper/7up. However, Cadbury has carved out a niche in the non-cola segment of the soft drink industry where their brands were often the market leader in their specific categories. With their acquisition of Crush in 1989, Cadbury controlled 22% of the orange category of the soft drink market through Crush and Sunkist. The orange category has the third largest share of the market, with a market share of 3.9%. For families with/without children, Crush is an all natural orange flavored carbonated beverage, which blends all natural ingredients that create an exclusive zesty formula because only Crush is filled with natural vitamins. Ultimately, Crush is better for your health than colas. After purchasing Crush, Cadbury executives needed to restructure the Crush brand to gain a higher market share while neither contradicting its current......

My Childhood

...MY CHILDHOOD As a child,i was a huge day dreamer. i spent lots of hours just dreaming about a better life.a life filled with so much love. you see, i love to read. I started reading at a very young age. I read my first romantic novel while still in primary school and that was how i became hooked.I became a huge fan of Mills and Boons and every romantic write up. So, when i wasnt reading my novels, u 'd often catch me just day dreaming about ruggedly handsome guys and flowers and chocolates and exotic gifts. No wonder, that when i became a teenager, i had very high expectations about love and romance that were a little impossible to be fulfilled. Needless to say that those dreams were never fulfilled as a teenager but then that didnt stop me from dreaming anyway. I remembeer the first time i actually had a real crush on a guy. I was fifteen then. It was the holidays and schools were on break. There was this guy who was a neighbour and had been for a couple of years. The details of how it all began are a little blurry now but all i remember is that i suddenly had this huge crush on him and whenever i saw him, i felt butterflies in my tummy. He was very much older than me and was in a higher institution. The crush lasted for the whole holiday season and then like all crushhes, it just died down. After that came another guy, although this time, i was seventeen and out of secondary school. As at that time, i considered myself more matured.(now that i think aboutit, i......

My Testimony

...My life before I came to Christ. My life was in absolute chaos. I followed the world and allowed material things to fill me up. My job became my identity and the money became my security. I have been a believer since I was 8 years old, but when I turned around 17, I chose to follow my own will and way. I ran with the wrong crowds. I allowed my past painful hurts to guide my destructive lifestyle. I married young and I married a pill popping addict, who had two kids. We divorced after being together for 12 years and then I went crazy with partying. I was in sales and it affored me the opportunity to have “free” money and do whatever I wanted, when I wanted. I felt alive and yet alone, scared, and abandoned like never before. How I came to a cognitive knowledge of Who Jesus is and what He did for me. God is so great. I was in New York, New York on Park Avenue with one of my best friends. I was running some errands with her, as we were standing in a paper store, the song Cry out to Jesus came on. I looked at her and just started weeping, I knew God was calling me back to Him. That began my very slow journey back to Christ. Circumstances surrounding your conversion. I felt alone for so many years. I felt so unworthy of love and respect. My parents were great examples of Christ, but I needed more. I was in such a self destructive mode, making choices that I despised, when I wasn’t so sick. I just knew I could no longer live this way. I felt the Holy...

My Life

...Oriental. My mother went through cesarean while delivering her youngest son, which is I, “CD”. My parents call me “CD” because of my initials, which is Christian Dale. My family has 4 members including myself. We lived in a small room in a bus terminal in Tarragona, Davao Oriental when I was 6 years old. We were not that poor but I can safely assume that we had money for food. My father and mother had no work and the only source of income that we had was to sell food to the passengers. As part of the family, I, too, helped in selling food like “puto”, noodles, “bingka”, “mani” and etc. We also had our special “halo-halo” which is only 20 pesos at that time. I am the one who grinds the ice before putting it to the glass then my mother would finish it with her finishing touches. My mother always praised me when I am working hard to earn money. My brother was attending school and he was grade 1. I was not attending school because of financial problems. Every weekday in early morning, my mother and I go to school to sell fresh “puto” and “bingka” to the teachers and students by riding a motorcycle, which is owned by “Angkol Tope”, and every time we pass through the classroom of my brother as I saw him writing his lessons, I was envious. I was fat back then, I mean very fat that my father would always pinch my cheeks when he sees me, every time. He and I are very close. The bus terminal was near to the shore so when my father and I had free time, we always go fishing for dinner.......

...in IMDb soundtrack page) such as “In the Deep”, “City of Angel”, “Maybe Tomorrow”, “Redemption”, and “Swinging Doors”, to name a few, as background sounds and music playing throughout the movie that gives one the perception of dread with no redemption and no solutions to the everyday bias of today society and its ignorance in the world. The sounds effects were excellent in giving the reaction of a swirling downfall of how a society will continue to destroy itself unless we change our ways of thinking. In this twisted drama with every day, real life issues, it makes me sick and angry to think that in today’s world this is still going on and yet it does. I must live a sheltered life in my small city because I do not see a large amount of this where I live. Can it be that I turn my head and chose not to see it as so many others have and continue to do so? As a Hispanic female that has had to work hard to achieve success, I know the struggles and challenges that one must face. However, one must be willing to work hard and deal with the challenges head-on and not be willing to cover up, work around, lie, cheat, or steal to achieve that success. Any attempt to do otherwise and one would encounter the same issues and sometimes it maybe bigger than the first. Society should work on building relationships with one other and not judging people based on their skin color, backgrounds, age, race, or even where one lives, before one has a chance to know them personally. ......
