This year, on this particular Labor Day of 2007, Peter McGuire decided to go visit his family's house in Virginia. He had not been there for the past twenty years; he had not seen or heard from his parents, and he did not know what had happened to his little sister. It must have been a mystery to them, this disappearance of his'. One day, on graduation night from his high school, Peter had suddenly disappeared from his town. He had not been able to tell anyone before running away and he was not able to call his house and tell his parents, or his friends, what had happened to him. He had lived the past twelve years in New York City, working odd jobs until he won a sizeable lottery, which enabled him to open up his own music store. He started by selling vinyls and cassettes, but he had now moved into the new age of CDs and DVDs. He had been eighteen when he had run away, and was now thirty-eight years old. His business was dwindling and he was extremely unhappy with his life. Yet he persisted, year after year, waiting for Labor Day so that he can truly feel alive. He wondered how many people knew that Labor Day was established because his namesake had started it.
He felt somewhat awkward when he stepped out of the train and onto the steps of the train station in Virginia. He had not been here over the past twenty years and he was unsure as to how he would be welcomed (or unwelcomed) at home. He did not even know if his home would still be there, if his parents were alive, or his sister still in town. Waving aside these feelings of doubt and uncertainty, he purposefully made his way up to the neighborhood where his house used to be located. All sorts of memories started to come back to him as he walked past the municipal building, the library, and his old high school. Flashes of that fateful night zoomed through his head as he made his way across the road and towards his house that was coming up. What a horrific night that was, he thought, as he made his way across the pathway, and into Oak Hammock Lane, where 1105 was his house number.
The most common topic--particularly if only one essay is required--is the first, "tell us about yourself." Since this kind of essay has no specific focus, applicants sometimes have trouble deciding which part of their lives to write about. Beware of the chronological list of events that produces dull reading. Remember, also, to accent the positive rather than the negative side of an experience. If you write about the effect of a death, divorce, or illness on your life, tell about but don't dwell on your bad luck and disappointments.
In middle school and high school, you’ll have to write many essays, especially in English classes. Essay writing is a great way to help you develop and perfect your writing skills, as well as learn to think logically and demonstrate strong critical thinking skills. One of the most common types of essays that you’ll probably be asked to write is the three paragraph essay. This short writing format helps to teach the structure of a good, well-written, and informative paper, including an introduction, body, and conclusion. One of the most popular topics for this type of paper is to write about something that happened to you in your life. Everyone has life changing experiences, and even if you’re still very young, there’s probably been an event in your life that had a significant impact on who you are as a person. In some cases, you might specifically be given an assignment to write about your life, but even if you have a free choice of topic, it’s still a good idea for a paper.
