To me, an experience is something or anything, everyone must start from scratch – a beginning. To me, an experienced person must have the qualities of making mistakes, which transcends them into the learning process. Learning one’s mistakes is likely not to repeat them. And that, my friend, is called smart. People can learn from mistakes, but choose to repeat them because they’re dull. For example: A teenage girl is sexually active and for a week had the scarce of being pregnant; fortunately she wasn’t, but SHOULD have picked up on the short term tension and ideal of being pregnant. Any smart girl would have learned her lesson and become abstinent, but not this one, she continued on being sexually active; therefore, she’s an experienced airhead. But a virtuous person after learning from their mistake has the time and patience to master their skill – perfecting on it. For example, a teacher obviously went through the “learning” stage and has skillfully managed to teach what she/he has learned or experienced. If you look up the word Experience, it would show: The apprehension of an object, thought, or emotion through the senses or mind.

Experience is something wonderful to look back on; how, where, when and why you became experienced. Once Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “…the inventor of the game Omnipresent…tomorrow they will wear another face…” Experience leads you to a reputation that people will foresee, and you will agree by gathering pride of what you’ve acquired. For example: My school experience lets me feel better on how I will take on the next grade level, the upcoming 8th graders have to handle on their own, but at least I got an insight on how to manage teen issues. There are many things I’m experienced at, but too many to tell.
