I don’t think i need to explain. But i guess just the thought of a little piece of metal being stuck in your arm…well its just messed up. Umm this fear does not really effect my life. The only advantage of this is that i am less likely to turn to drugs. The only way it can be used against me is i guess if i was in a fight and someone pulled out a needle rather then a knife i would be out of there faster the Sonic on speed. How am i supposed to reduce a fear that happens so rarely that i don’t have to think about it for over 4 years at a time. Did i learn anything? I LEARNED HOW I CAN TORMENT 3 OF MY CLASSMATES

In the Pursuit of Happiness directed by Gabriele Muccino, it tells the real life story of Chris Gardner and the struggle he went through to get where he is today. Chris had started fresh out of the navy in San Francisco to follow a promising career in medicine. However he did not pursue this career and rather he set his path on the “competitive world of high finance”. However as he got into an entry-level position, Chris was smacked with a series of events that lost him his wife, money, and his house, the only thing he had left was a suit case of clothes, a little bit of pocket change and his son. Now homeless and with a child Chris had to move from hotel to hotel, shelter to shelter and even sleeping in subway station bathrooms, and while most people would give up Gardner keeps pressing on. Even with all of this hardship and despair he still finds the courage to keep on training to get his job, all because the promise he made to himself and his son. 

 

(the promise was that he would give his son a better life)
