    2. 2. Sometimes it seems that humans can attach themselves to a territory—a farm, a body of water, or a forest grove. Over time this place even shapes perceptions and perspectives on what it is like to be human; this territory almost becomes holy. Raised on a farm and influenced by the land, I grew to realize that the family farm shaped my personality while instilling values. What became so significant about this experience were not only the endless hours of work and the old equipment needing repair, but also the many personal rewards that outweighed the work.
    3. 3. Sowing and then reaping on my family farm greatly shaped my personality and gave me values. It meant not only long hours to complete tasks and repair old equipment, but also countless rewards. Main Idea of Your Essay Necessary Tasks Equipment Rewards
