My favorite act of service that I have ever done was through the school’s project based learning. I had heard that the NWC Men’s Basketball Team was building a house a Haitian family who’s house had collapsed with all their belongings. I then contacted the men’s basketball coach asking if my group and I could raise money to buy items for their house. We organized a traditional bake sale, as well as an online bake sale, to raise money for the family. In the midst of baking 40 dozen cookies and 38 dozen cupcakes, I was coordinating with a missionary in Haiti, Krisie Mompremier, who knew what the family needed most.
After eating, everyone starts to clean up the food. We usually fix each one of us plates to eat that night. My family has leftovers for two days or so. Then we sit and talk a while for about an hour until everyone starts to leave. My family and I leave and invite my other grandma to our house, that evening, to celebrate thanksgiving with her.
My observation took place at The lost dog cafe and my focus was mainly on the host welcoming customers. I started my observation at 6 pm and it took me two hours to complete my assessment. I was sitting at an high top chair right at the front of the restaurant which limited my eyesight to the back part of the restaurant. I decided to sit up front since I assumed the host would be standing at the front of the restaurant but soon I found out that she occasionally went to the back part on the restaurant to guide customers or walk the host down to their table when the restaurant is really busy which caused me to not have full view and leading to my observation being limited to the front half of The Lost Dog Cafe. If the assignment had allowed, I could've
I spent a large amount of my day delivering to hospitals and medical offices. Interacting with nurses during deliveries sparked an old desire I had to go to nursing school. Every day on my drive home a passed school and won day noticed the sign stating that they now offered an LPN program in the evening. Evening courses were appealing because I was raising three teenagers and their father would be home at night so I could be at school and not
School is most important, and I should work hard to keep my grades up,” I replied. The next day my phone started ringing. It was my Grandma. Hey Grandma! How did the book club go?” “It was canceled, because one of my friends couldn’t make it due to being sick.” “I was thinking, since I don’t need to do anymore reading, maybe we could go to dinner together?” “Sounds great!” We went to dinner, and afterwards we ate the cookies I had made for the book club.
Throughout the text I will be describing and will give my opinion on how I feel about each chapter. In chapter one Barbara decides to find a job that can help her pay for an affordable place. Barbara spends many days applying but never gets a call back. She waited for three days until a hotel manager calls her for a job but it ends up being for a family restaurant. She is interview by a young west indian named Philip and is told to come back the next day to start.
Every day, when coming back home, I had to breastfeed my baby again, cook the meal for the family and clean the kitchen, and off course, wash the dishes. My sink became messy with a pile of dishes that were tossed there until I got home. By that time, my husband was a stay home dad , as he had lost his job. I noticed that instead of helping me out, washing his own dishes, at least, he used all the cleaning ones until none was available. I started wondering why he would do that , when I was hassling between my job, the commute, the nights awake to breast feed my three months baby and the kitchen chores.
My ethnography and fieldwork takes place at Loafers Bread Company in Wexford, Pennsylvania. The business is located in Wexford Plaza, along with many other restaurants and shops. I chose this company for my ethnography because two of my good friends from high school work there and I decided it would be interesting to see what it was like as they are always talking about Loafers. It was easy to establish contacts because I had my friends there to help me out and introduce me to the others. My first encounter with the group went well.

I checked the punch clock to see if Donal’s story was true and it wasn 't. He came in 15 minutes late to his shift. __insert your answers/__. I have considered both sides of the employees and thought about how Donald has college to attend to and another job that he works at, also how Donald has built a good relationship with him bringing good income for the bakery, but

Some hobbies I have taken up recently are baking and crocheting. Much of my family loves to bake so baking comes naturally to me; although crocheting, on the other hand, I have been working to learn and become good at this new hobby. Dancing has also been a big part of my life. I danced for nine total years before deciding to quit this year so I can make room for
My family makes tamales in the fall and holiday it brings us together for family time. Tamales are an ancient and modern cunei that brings family’s together and there made uniquely and has a cultural background. When the Aztec women were taken along in battle as cooks for the army. There was a need to have a more portable yet sustainable food and the tamales could be made ahead of time, packed and warmed as needed. Now we cook tamales more for holidays and in the fall time.
The temptation to eat junk at work is still there. The office is a bit chaotic at the moment so I am having to get through my meals quickly. The upside of eating home-cooked meals is that I am saving money in the long run. I have been trying out new recipes that I found at the American Diabetes Foundation website and they are awesome. I could live off of Shepard 's Pie and the Tailgate Nachos.
