“Jack of all trades- a master of none” is a phrase often heard on the job site. One can dabble in many areas, but not truly master any one skill. It is important to be a well-rounded individual, but eventually one must find his niche and what he is good at. Being good at many things may help a person now, but in the future being an expert at one will mean more success.

The four season climate allows for inhabitants to experience all the natural wonders, exciting events, and picturesque views of the area.

When I was seven years old, I refused to come inside the house until I taught myself to blow bubbles with my gum. It was getting dark and I was standing by my chimney, out of the view of my mother. I was determined to succeed and I placed a lot of pressure on myself. I never learned to blow bubbles that night, and when my mom finally found me, in tears, close to midnight I learned an important lesson. Sometimes failure is a better teacher than success.

I never knew that a slice of pizza could change my life! When visiting Chicago last summer I thought I knew all there was to know about pizza. I am a teenager and pizza does constitute a large part of my weekly diet. A new experience with pizza awaited me in Illinois, though. A taste of Chicago style deep dish pizza was an extremely unique experience for my palate.

Responsible, respectful, and helpful are three words to describe me. I have a few privileges in my family, but I think I deserve more because of the positive qualities I have. I show my responsibility and my willingness to help through my chores I do around the house; I am respectful when talking to my parents and older sister. Because I am such a great son, I deserve more privileges other kids my age have.
