Write about some of the things that make you happy.Use specific details to explain why these things make you happy.

I belong to this sort of person who feels happy when everything around him seems beautiful.There are a lot of things which can make a common person happy. For me the only things that matter are love,family and friends.It's not just because I appreciate my girlfriend and all of my friends.It is because I believe that one man can be happy only when people around him/her are happy.So my aim is to make the other feel so.

First of all, I love to play computer games,to surf in internet,to play football and watch television,to go to the theatre and cinema,but most of all I love to read books.Not only that, books give me so much knowledge but they affect me positively.

I also love to drive my car in the city.It is something like hobby.If I don't drive an hour or two a day I will be nervous and impatient.All these things are a little part of the things which make me happy.

Another my activity which really makes me feel happy is music.After listening music I feel very energetic and full of strenght.The essence of my life is music.I bought even a mobile telephone with mp3 player,because when I travel in a bus or in a texi or even while I am walking to the school I listen music.Music is my life.This is the thing which make me happy every miunte of the day.To be quite frank,I love all things that a comman person has as a boring and necessary things.

In conclusion I admit that that the things that make me happy are my real friends and my family. I am happy with them and they are ahppy with me,because when we spend our time together all of us are feeling great.

Sometimes it takes forever to find the right pet. I think the best kind of pet is a dog. The first dog my family had was a large male beagle. He was not a great family dog, though. Jack took toys and ripped them apart. My brother Jordan and I could never play with him without getting hurt. One day, Jack ripped my doll’s head off and dragged it around the house the whole night. My dad tried to get it out of the dog’s mouth, but Jack just bit my dad’s finger. My dad had to get stitches, and we had to take Jack back. For a while we didn’t have a dog to play with. Then one day that all changed…
The trees quickly passed by as they had for over an hour. The car speeds along the road, a road that never seems to end. My dad turns on a side street, and the car in a neighborhood hidden by trees. My moms perfume was very nauseating because it was so strong; she noticed it too and rolled the window down. We passed house after house, and just before I joined my brother in a nap, Dad pulled the car into a driveway. I woke up my brother (which is no easy task) and we waited for someone to open our door. When my mom opened it, I took her hand, and she pulls me out. The cold air tastes crisp to my lips, for I licked them. The foreign place we had arrived at smelled earthy, because the rain had cleansed the air. My moms hair waved in the wind as we slowly walked up to the woman’s front door.
My brother rang the doorbell before I even had the chance to, however the jingle of the doorbell changed my mood. Every second we stat there in silence, my stomach twisted itself into more and more knots. When I wanted to shrivel up and blow away, a woman slowly opened the door. One by one my family entered her house. In the house there were faint whimpers. The whimpers came from newborn pups, and they were sleeping in a pile. Jordan and I wanted to hold one, but my parents warned us that they were too young. While my parents talked to the woman my brother and I got lost in the smells of the room.
Failure From Discouragement

Being an athlete was every child’s dream in my neighborhood; each and every one of us wished we could one day become Maria Jones, or my cousin who is a professional runner in my country. Its every parent’s ambition for their children to be successful in all there endeavor in life. So, they work very hard to make sure their child’s oneiric would come to life. However, I failed to let that cherished desire come to life all because of discouragement. I never thought that my desire of becoming an athlete would ever become a reality. Realizing my wiliness, my parents decided to take me to Lagos to see my cousin. She was always busy training; I began to wonder why she was always working out and training. I never knew it was one of the things that kept her stronger and better on the field.

One lovely day, I was opportune to attend one of her game in the national stadium Lagos state. I was astounded seeing my cousin running with such a full speed as if she was flying on the air like an eagle. You can see the crowed cheering her on with love. Immediately, I said to myself, if she can do this. I can do more it too. All I needed was more training, encouragement and focus. So I decided to put my heart in it more to accomplish my ambition as an athlete. In my mind I wished I was the runner on the field. After the game, I saw my cousin signing a lot of autographs for her fans. I went to her and congratulate her for winning the game.

When she saw me she was very happy that I made it to one of her games. She asked me to sign some autographs and told her fans that I was her favorite little cousin, who will one day become like her. At that moment I began to feel like a star and never wanted to lose that feelings. So, I made the decision right there on the spot to be one of the greatest athletes my country would ever produce. I asked my cousin what it would take to be in that position. She replied “ a lot of work little cousin, you have to be very determined with the vibe to do better”. I took that along with me back to Benin.

On the very first day of school I went to the physical education department to ask for the permission to join the running team. They said that for me to join the team, I would have to do a running test first and I agreed. To my surprise, I did very well on the test. From that day I was very good at the game. I started going for training with friends, striving to become a better runner. I participated in a lot of school competitions and won them. My school was so proud of me that I was given a scholarship. I felt very good about it and wanted to do more because my parent was always there to support me.

In summer of 1995, I qualified for my state cross-country and won a gold medal. This qualified me for nationals. The state promised to sponsor me to the national level. My cousin and my parents were so proud of me that they bought me a brand new car working so hard to reach the level I was.

In November 1995, I went for the national competition and my cousin promised to be there to support me. Immediately after the first game that day I went home mad that she was not there for my game. On my way to the room, I overheard my parents talking about my cousin’s involvement in a very serious accident on her way to my game. And they are not too sure if she could ever walk again. As soon as I heard the news, I wished the ground would open and swallow me. I felt guilty for what happened to her. I couldn’t bear the pain in my heart knowing that because of me, she got involved in a terrible accident. The next day was supposed to be my finals. I went to that game with the feeling that I almost got my cousin killed. Right there on the spot I decided to quite the game without considering the outcome my decision. All I cared about at that time was my cousin’s recovery. My parents were very disappointed that I let my dreams die out of anger, after working so hard to get to this point. I felt disappointed in myself, because I knew when my cousin recover from her illness and hear that I quit, she would be highly disappointed in me. My parents told me that my cousin was never a quitter.

So, this was the cause of my Failure. Being deprived of courage by the accident of my cousin. I lost all my dreams and hope of becoming a professional athlete. I never did forgive myself for quitting though, but as a Christian, I said to myself that there is no reason for me to fill sorry for myself. I believe that every disappointment is blessing from God almighty and I strongly believe that he had better plans for my life.

Deconstructing An Advertisment

The advertisement I have chosen is used to show Australia how fast big pond broadband can be. The speed of the internet is shown by one of the main key objects in the advertisement, this is the blue kombi, and this is the main focal point on the advertisement. It is show by bright colours such as baby blue, yellow, green, purple and orange. This 1960’s Volkswagen kombi used to show that big pond is Australian, the Australia values are also show by the 12 apostles, great ocean road and the song lyrics “I’ve been everywhere man...” is from the famous Australian song ‘I’ve been everywhere man’.There are many logos or symbols shown in this advertisement, such as the Telstra sign, this is placed in the top right hand corner of the page to show its importance. Another symbol is second most important symbol, the big pong sign. This sign is written in two tone colours, dark blue and light blue. These colours stand out; by doing this it shows it is the focal point for a symbol. There is one last symbol on this advertisement, it is the Telstra next G network sign, is a smaller and less import symbol, this is why it is much smaller than the others and the colours on it are dull and less attractive.Positioning used in this advertisement was done very good, by having a far and eye level shot this makes it easier to bring in a whole lot of things to look at, such as this advertisement. In the advertisement it has 3 main objects to explain the advertisement. These objects are the kombi; the main focus, the 12 apostles; top right, and great ocean road; located in the centre.

The text associated with the advertisement is very detailed but is located in a position that you don’t really even notice that it’s there and you don’t have to read it unless you want to. The information is all technical but is possible for non advanced readers to read, this is done so people don’t just take a look and see its technical and they can read it no matter who they are.
