Essay on Values

This essay has a total of 689 words and 4 pages.


The Vales that you develop as you go threw life determine what kind of a person you
become. Most of my values I learned were from my family, my friends, and the people that I
admire. There are certain things that I value in my life; one of those is the friends that
I made when I lived in Heidelberg, Germany for two years. Another thing that I value is
having a chance to live in Europe for two years. Finally the last value that I would like
to talk about is my relationship with my parents.

The Guys that I made friends with in Heidelberg are probably gone to be my best friends
for the rest of my life. The reason why I value these friends so much is because I really
do not think that I could find another group of guys like them. When I first moved to
Germany at the beginning of my junior year I met these guys and we went on a trip to the
Octoberfest in Munich. We had a great time and ever since that trip we have all been the
best of friends and nothing really has come between us. I think one of the reasons we are
such good friends is that do not let girls come between us. I have seen so many
friendships ruined because some guy has a girlfriend that he spends all his time with, and
he kind of forgets about spending time with his boys. So my buddies and I have this kind
of value, I guess you call it, bros before whoes, which means no matter how fine or how
special the girl is she will never come first. There was no particular event that made us
become closer friends I think that we are just have a lot of the same interest and that is
what makes us such close friends. We have a great time when we are together it does not
matter where we are as long as we are with each other we will have a great time

Being able to live in Europe for two years was a great experience for me. When my parents
first told me that we were going to be moving to Germany I was a little upset. But I am
glad we did because I was able to experience so many things that kids in the States would
never get to experience. For instance, I was able to drink some really good beer. I
traveled to a lot of places and events that kids in the States were not able to go to. I
went to the Octoberfest, Love Parade, spring break in Ibiza, Spain, and a whole lot of
other stuff. If I never lived in Germany I would have never been able to experience all
the things that I did. Living in Germany was a valuable experience for me because I think
it gave me a different perspective of the world.
