留学assignment写作参考-通过经历艰难进行学习-Learning through the Hard Way
 
阿拉斯加的野外是这个国家留下来的最荒凉的地方,同时是一个了解野生动物自然环境最好的地方,对于一个野生动物生物学专业的来说,了解野生动物的机会看起来是一生中的一次机遇,去年夏天当这个机遇摆在我面前,我毫不犹豫的接受了,这应该是我所从事的职业中最伟大的经历了,它也给了我一个可以和我所研究的领域的专家们一起工作的机会,此时,我正想这对我来说应该是一个很棒的机会去寻找灵魂和在野外度过高质量的时间在我明年夏天结婚之前,我期待这个夏天能让我个人有所改变,给了我思考生命的充足时间,我从没想过这些改变以他们本来的方式出现,一个改变人生的事情可以发生在他们最不希望发生的时间和地点,在德纳里峰自然公园的野外的晚上,当我做了一个小小的失误都会永远的改变我的生活。我会学习怎样坚强的爱能获得真正重要的东西从而对我的生活有个更好的看法。
 
Learning through the Hard Way 
 
The backcountry of Alaska is one of the wildest places left in this country, an excellent place to study wildlife in it’s natural environment. To a wildlife Biology major with an overwhelming draw to the outdoors, the chance to study this wildlife would seem to be the opportunity of a lifetime. When this opportunity presented itself to me this past summer, I didn’t hesitate to take it. This would be great experience for the career path I am taking and it would give me a chance to work with professionals in the field of my studies. At the time I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to do some soul searching and spend quality time in the backcountry before I married next summer. I was expecting this summer to change me as an individual, allowing me plenty of time to reflect on my life. Never did I expect these changes to occur in the way they did. A life changing event can occur when and where they are least expected. The evening in the backcountry of Denali National Park when I made one small misstep would change my life forever. I would learn how strong love can be and gain a better perspective of what is truly important to me in my life. 
 
It was mid June, a beautiful cloudless day in Denali National Park. I was hiking deep in the backcountry, with only the millions of mosquitoes to keep me company. I was on the fifth day of a scheduled six day trip, and I couldn’t have asked for a better week. Denali, the tallest mountain in the northern hemisphere, became visible for the first time of the year and it stayed out for the duration of my trip. Hiking in the trail less backcountry, where the grizzly bears outnumber the people by more than three to one, truly makes a person feel alone. Walking through the alpine tundra, with tiny little flowers acting as a carpet, I encountered twice as many moose as people on this trip. Never had I felt so alone and been so happy about it. Little did I know, that would all change, challenging me to be stronger than I have ever been, both mentally and physically. (51Due责任编辑:BUG)
 
The day of the accident began as a beautiful one. I woke up in my camp just below the summit of 5022’ Mt. Galen as a herd of caribou ran over the ridge beyond my tent. After summating Mt. Galen, I packed up and made my way down to Moose Creek, which I was going to follow for the final twenty six miles of my trip. After following the meandering creek all day through the mountains, I was nearing my planned camp site for the evening. A relatively small, dirt cliff standing only about twenty five feet high was all that stood between me and my place of rest for the evening. Instead of walking a mile upstream and then back down, I decided that I was going to go up and over the cliff. I carefully kicked out my steps as I ascended the cliff. As I reached the top, with my camp site in plain view, I lost my balance. I tumbled backwards, doing a back flip and landing feet first on the riverbed below before crumbling to a heap on the ground. The height of the fall along with the sixty pounds in my pack compressed two of my vertebrae and the disk in between. 
 
Fear. Pain. Panic. I lay on the ground, alone and in the middle of nowhere, unable to feel or move my legs. A dull pain shot up my spine and into my neck. I went into a state of panic. Am I paralyzed? Would I ever be able to walk again? I wouldn’t be able to walk down the aisle at my own wedding. How am I going to even get out of here? Am I going to be able to get out of here? I am not expected to be out for another twenty four hours; so it will be at least two days before anyone comes looking for me. I wonder if I will ever see my fiance again. Will my life be the same? After nearly an hour of these thoughts running through my head, I began to realize that I was panicking. I knew that the worst thing to do in my situation was to panic. The moment I realized that I was the only person who could help myself was the moment that my life changed. I knew what was truly important to me and that was what I would use to give me the strength to go on. 
 
I promised myself that I would get out of the backcountry no matter what it took. I would get back to my fiance. Most importantly, I would stand tall, proudly walking down the aisle on my wedding day to commit the rest of my life to the person who unknowingly helped me through the most difficult time in my life. The next forty eight hours were the most painful days of my life. It took nearly eighteen hours to travel the remaining four miles to the road. I caught a tour bus that took me to the park EMT’s where I was given some pain killers and sent to a hospital in Anchorage. After a few days in Anchorage, I flew back to Illinois where I could be with my family and fiance for the long process of rehabilitation. It wasn’t until I finally reached home that I succumbed to all of the feelings that I had ignored in the last few days. It had never before felt so good to be with the people that I loved most. I knew that I was lucky to be with them, and that I almost didn’t get this chance. Life was suddenly more important to me than ever. (51Due责任编辑:BUG)
 
After two months of intense physical therapy, the doctors released me and came back home to Flagstaff. While I am still not back to 100%, I am extremely fortunate to be as far along as I am. When I look back on what happened this past summer, I realize how lucky I am on two levels. First, I was able to make it out all right and have no lasting effects of the accident. Second, and most importantly, I realized how lucky I am to have my family and friends. All of the things that I used to think were so important seemed so trivial when faced with the possibility of losing everything that is truly important to me. The lyrics of one of my favorite songs, Scarlet Begonias by the Grateful Dead, I think best sums up the situation. “Sometimes you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right (Grateful Dead).” When we least expect to see the importance of life, we can be shown it. Even a bad experience like mine in Alaska this past summer can have positive results on an individuals life. Nobody ever knows when they will experience a life changing event, but it will never be forgotten when it happens.
