The three elements that I feel influence things in my life such as self-concept, behavior, how people perceive and treat me, etc. would be my family status, education and my job (not necessarily in that order). I chose these three elements as the corner stone of my life or the things that I value the most because in the last five years, I feel as though these have changed me into the man that I am today. If I did not have these in my life, then I believe that I would be completely different. When my son was born, I knew that I was going to have to make some big changes in my life. I knew that my long Saturday nights out were coming to an end. I knew that I wouldn’t be cursing as much as I was used to. I knew that my life as a young adult was essentially dying and I was going to be reborn into a man that my son would want to be like. A man that my wife would appreciate more after all the important events that I had to miss. Having my own family has been one of the greatest things that happened in my life. It began to mold me into the father that I wanted to be. Being a father has changed my perception of the world in certain aspects. Before, when I wasn’t a father I would sometimes see a movie with the death of a child or in the news that a child was brutally abused by other children or worse by their own parent, I wouldn’t be phased by it. Now when I see those things it makes me cringe. I want to keep my boy safe always. I view these articles and movies differently now than I have before. My family means a lot to me and I know that when I coached his T-Ball team this year that all the other parents had their own perception of me. My first impression to the other parents reassured them that I am a parent who cares about the education and proper form of an athlete and that I will treat their

sons/daughter as I would my own because I want them to understand the great game of baseball. Without my family (wife and son) I would not be the loving and caring husband/father that I am today.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
