TOEFL Essay - travels alone or guided

Q. Many people enjoy vacations that are with a tour guide. Still others enjoy traveling alone. Which do you prefer?

I have found travel to most places in the world particularly interesting. I have performed this action by myself. There has been no interference. Because of the simple nature of solitude, I prefer no tour guides free from distraction and jabbering commentary, and also free of charge.

Distraction in a talkative way is a big deal. What is “nice to know” is not “must know.” When we navigate urban areas of interest, various flights of fancy might dictate nonstop talking, or jabber. Commentary made loud as it's microphoned up to large speakers has this jabbering and muddy affect. Much of this jabber forms commentary, but who writes this commentary and for whom? I am not a usual tourist. For example, I will not fit like an egg into the open top of a bus, roaring down the wide avenues in the rain with a barker delivering historical information at a high pitch. I don't want my head getting wet on the bus. I would rather rain deflect or detour around my studious locks. There's no city that can't handle my hair. I have even invested in multiple avenues of over-the-counter straightener to relax my hair because it signifies the real me. I detest the tours.

Tours often charge high prices to proffer the belief that your glimpse of the environs uniquely satisfies. I am not looking to be generically quenched. My adventuresome spirit thrives, but I know that language which boasts of uniqueness and one-of-a-kind thrills originates in the mouths of liars. I want to see real lions, not hear talk of the lion's roaring. With guides, there is no angle uncovered, but my quest for authentic experience eclipses my desire for surprise. No one scare or suddenly increase the volume coming from your voice box, please no.

TOEFL Essay - a job for life

Q. A job should mean a job for life. Do you agree or disagree? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.


If you work, it should be for life. My opinion says that jobs should affect your entire life, because loyalty ensues from putting people to work for you and because work climates with long-term employees are positive.

Most work requires solid effort. We finish one project and another one rolls our way. There is nothing like a lifetime to finish all the work rolling at us. In fact, a workplace affects us in a lifetime sense, and this represents a relationship. As our divorced hands tire, we apply the same longevity to marriages. We view terms of service to others in punctuated format. If jobs were longer and slower, other facets of commitment would elongate. If we program ourselves to follow each product we put forth into the world to our graves, our dedication to other pursuits trains itself to experience the same till death do us part. We see how our products mutate, merge, reformat and consolidate, and we take our cues from the radical changes worldly affairs conspire to exert on our own relationships.

Long term employees are positive. From the pictures their faces glare nothing but teeth and satisfaction. Can brands cause our definition to be smiles? If chocolates grant me profound sexual flavors, perhaps my hands placed on an object I've made results in a depth of this flavor? I want to market myself as mint, and employers recognize our steps to fasten a stable position where we can enjoy weekends and have a life. These machines were made for halving our duties. Where did the halving disappear to? Having a life means more concentration in the job place and less in the job market. I want a job to affect my entire life. If living means working anyway, I thought at least a job I prefer might be one that attracts me.


Been on a hiatus, sleep
I'm on a gurney, I need sleep
I'm Journey and I'm hooked on a Federer feeling
I don't play tennis, I lay logs.

Been on a hiatus, coffee
I'm in a sack in the back
of a Toyota Tercel, please comfort me.
I'm stuck in this area that lacks GPS.

Been on a hiatus, family matters
I'm in an emergency; I miss my clothes
Something in this drink tastes funny.

I'm on a hiatus, don't blow
the spot I'm on up.
Don't blow up my spot
my get up requires a turgid response
to your sturgeon first responder
but homegrown is alembic Limberger
I live in the Craftmatic Adjustable prayer circle.
