Mcdonalds and Mary's Restaurant contrasted

Although Mcdonald's and Mary's Restaurant are popular Restaurants in Saipan they are different in the types and quality food served,prices and customer service.
First, Mcdonalds and Marys Restaurant serves different types of food. Mcdonald's serves mostly fast food such as Big-mac,Double cheeseburger and Mac-chicken sandwiches,unlike Macdonalds Restaurant, Marys Restaurant serves beef brocoli, fried shrimp, fried chicken which goes with your choice of rice or dinner roll.
Second, Mcdonald's restaurant is affordable if you are planning on taking your family for lunch or dinner. For example, on a twenty dollars budget you could feed your family of four on Mcdonald's double cheeseburger meal which includes the sandwich, fries, and a large drink. Unlike Mcdonald's, Mary's Restaurant is not affordable because of the expensive price range.
Third, for customer service at Mcodonald's Restaurant are fast, friendly, and employees give you a smile unlike Mcdonald's, Mary's restaurant customer service is slow, and unfriendly, there are no smiling faces for the customers, which makes the customer feel unwelcome.
Therefore, with contrasting these two restaurants. I would certainly choose Mcdonald's, because of its type and quality food served, prices and customer service they have.

classifying students according to their attitudes

There are approximately one thousand registered students attending Northern College here on Saipan. These students could be classified according to their attitudes. some students are hardworking while some are lazy.

First, the students that are hardworking are the students who are interested with their education. Hardworking students care about about what courses to take to major in the field they are interested in. Hardworking students are responsible, reliable and dependable people. For example, My friend Maria. she would study really hard so that she could get As on her all classes.

Second are the lazy students. The lazy students are the students who only care about parties and friends and dont care about their education. whenever they go to parties at night they tend to come home very late and sleep all through the day and therefore they dont show up to class due to lack of sleep and hangover from too much alcohol consumption. lazy students are not responsible, reliable and undependable. For example, My friend Christy. She would go to parties with her friends and then come home very late and then not show up for her classes the following day. In my opinion this type of person is a lazy person.

These are the two differences of classifying students according to their attitudes. Some students are hardworking and while others are lazy.For me i would certainly like to fall on the hardworking student category.

My best friend

I have a best friend named Maggie. We've been best friends since the first grade and have alot in common with regards to our personality, physical characteristics, interests and hobbies.
First, the personality traits that Maggie and I have in common is that we're both shy around people. we won't talk or make conversation unless that person speaks first. we're ashame of what people might say to us that will embarass us.
Second, the physical characteristics we have in common are that we're both brown eyed with long black hair, short in height and big in stature.
Third, the interst and hobbies that we have in common is that we both love reading novels written by Nora Roberts. Moreover, We both love cooking for our family and friends. Whenever theres a family function we tend to contact each other because we know they'll be playing volleyball; our favorite sport.
My friend Maggie and I share alot in common. I guess that why remain friends until today. we consider ourselves sisters because we knew and grew up together. There are times we have our ups and downs but we always work out our problem. Maggie, if you can read this, I love you just like a sister.

JEALOUSY

According to an online dictionary, Jealousy is a "Feeling of Envy". At first, when you think of jealousy the one thing that comes to mind is when a person has something you've always wanted, but never could have. Jealousy in my own words, means trying to be above everyone else, because you happen to know that they are better that you are, not getting the same attention that they give the other people around you. Being Jealous is a bad Emotions; It just proves how weak of a person you actually are. It also causes trouble such as fights, broken friendship, realationship, and even death. People who feel this way are those who seem to be insecure with themselves and with what they have. Most of the time Jealousy occurs over material things such as who has the best handbag or the most expensive outfit. A crazy as it seems Jealousy is everywhere you turn. It could be over anything, over who has the most beautiful girlfriend, or the cutest boyfriend. Jealousy is a fearful feeling of envy.

Freedom

To me Freedom means being free to do just about anything and everything you want. Like an eagle soaring high up in the sky. people want freedom for so many different reasons. Some want it because they feel that its only fair that you are not being held back for what you truly want to do. I personally want freedom not for me but for my brother. For example, the clothes that he feels comfortable using, or being gay in a straight community, or having the feeling of knowing you have every right to say what you feel and not care what others might think. But there should also be limitations, as much as we want to be free in every way, it could and might get out of hand. You say something wrong and someone has something to say against it. You wear a certain outfit and they tear you down. In this World we need to have equality to try and balance everything out. Having freedom is the best feeling out there, but there is always someone who is more that willing to pull you down from the sky.

Cheating

I will never forget the day my teacher caught me cheating on the midterm test.My teacher decided to give us the midterm on a last minute notice and i didn't study so I decided to cheat. I decided to open up all my notes and copy it. While i was doing this my teacher noticed it and told me to close my notes and for me to come outside of the room. My teacher told me that if anyone gets caught cheating on a test automatically gets a "0" percent or should i say an "F" grade. She told me that cheating on the test was a very bad thing to do. she also said that I was not cheating her but myself. I was so ashamed and humiliated that I decided to drop the class and take it again the following semester. I learned a lesson that cheating will not get you anywhere but pull you down in life. If you cheated and never got caught your lucky but you will get caught one of these days. Think twice before you decided to cheat on a test or a relationship.

My crocodile pet

Having a crocodile pet is good and bad for many reasons. First, of all it's good for a house pet. If anyone decides to burglarize your home, the crocodile is there to protect it. The bad thing about having a crocodile for a pet at your home is that the crocodile might hurt or kill your own family member. Secondly, if a person is courting you and your not interested and your embarassed to tell him, just bring that person to your house and he will get the message right away. It may be funny, scary, good and bad but it's the reason for having a crocodile for a pet.

How to spend one million dollars

If I had one million dollars to spend I would do the following things. The first thing I would do is hire a contractor to build a new house for my children. secondly,I would buy a new car to replace my old one. Then, I would go to the bank and pay all my parents debts,after paying all the debts,I would take my whole family for a one month vacation to Hawaii. Lastly, I would save the rest of the money in the bank for my childrens college education. If I have this money to spend, I would surely spend it wisely and carefully because this amount of money can last a lifetime.

My first day as a mother

I can still remember the first day I became a mother to a beautiful baby girl. It was on April 05, 1992 at five o'clock in the morning. When I gave birth to my daughter. I was so happy. It was a very painful experience, and I had suffered more than fifteen hours of labor pain, but it was worth it. This child which I created, and gave life to
brought me joy, and it was an unforgettable experience. The reason why I chose my daughter as my favorite person is because she is my pride and joy.

The Horror story of a graveyard

I was walking through the graveyard one late night when all of the sudden i heard a
piercing scream. The scream was so loud that it gave me chills all over my body.Instead
of running i just walked straight ahead and never looked back. I was so afraid that i insisted of walking as fast as i could. If you ever decide to go for a walk in the middle of the night you better think twice or else you will experience things that you will regret later on life.

The Meaning of Hafadai in my Language

The chamorro dictionary defines the word "hafadai as hello, how are you, and welcome."
The word hafadai for instance can be used when you greeting a friend, family or a love one.
You can use hafadai Mr. wicksman meaning hello Mr. wicksman. The other example in using the word Hafadai
Mr. Wicksman meaning how are you.Lastly the word hafadai Mr. wicksman can also mean welome Mr. wicksman.
The word hafadai in my language means alot of things but spelled the same way may be confusing for other cultures
but for me it is the best word in our chamorro language.

This story is about my two Brothers

This is a story about my two brothers. On November 20, 1977 there was a big accident that happened to my two brothers. my oldest brother James who was nine years old at that time and my brother Jeff who is one year younger had a fire accident. James wanted to suprise my mom with something special and he decided to make breakfast and coffee, but during those years we didn't have gas stove. we were using woods for fire. James lit the fire but Jeff accidentally splash the charcoal fluid into the fire and the can exploded causing my two brothers to get severely burn. That day I remembered my brothers being transported by the Helicopter to Saipan for treatment. My parents transported the rest of the children to be close to my brothers because she received news from the Doctor that my brother James was not going to make it and my brother Jeff will be transported to Hawaii for further treatment. On that same day my oldest brother left us to go to heaven and my brother Jeff was sent to Hawaii for further treatment.
