I know I haven't been on the forums in a while, but if you guys could help me with my personal essay for Stevens Institute of Technology I'd really appreciate it. Essay: In my eyes, the only way to live life is to its fullest extent. If you dont, then what are you but a no-name employee at your local Walgreens? Now, I wont be so quick to knock down Walgreens. After all, I do work there. I use the term work loosely because I dont like the idea of just getting a job done, something the term work implies. I would say that I inspire there. This means greeting every customer with a smile and going that extra step to get them the very last bag of sugar that fell behind a shelf in the back corner of the stock room. I refuse to follow the norm of every other employee and just put in the bare minimum. I like to lead by example. Most of my friends would consider me the leader of the pack. In short, I make things happen. One close friend stated out of pure impulse last summer, I wish we could go to the beach. I heard this statement, thought about it, and realized that nothing was standing between us and a blissful day of sand and surf. I simply said with a grin on my face, So get in the car, lets go. It actually turned out to be a great day filled with memories. Now, before I look like a reckless adventure-seeker, Id like to convey that I d take time to plan things out when appropriate. When I got my license, I drove a 1985 Mustang GT that got about 9 miles to the gallon. This car was as fast as anything, but it was impractical. I took the time to do some research online, and I found out that if I bought a brand new fuel efficient car, I would be paying less than I was just for gas for my Mustang. That weekend, I took the plunge and bought myself a small Hyundai using, you guessed it, my paycheck from Walgreens. This is what Im talking about when I say that you have to live life to the fullest. By taking conscious risks, you will transform your life from an everyday service clerk to a fun-loving yet conservative adventurist.
