The sentence leading up to where I felt this connection was, “because of a chronic medical condition and I was initially treating my symptoms with the medication I quickly found out that medication was not the answer to relieve my symptoms. The side effects were horrific.” I feel this information peak their interest on how a smoothie help alleviates chronic medical condition. The body language of the audience boosts my confidence at this point in the speech.
My experiences at Gonzaga University thus far have gone above and beyond my expectations. Though, my decision to attend Gonzaga was not an easy. I’m a first generation college student and going to college seemed like a long shot. Fortunately, I was blessed with supportive parents that have pushed me to do my best in academics and community service. When it was time to apply for college, my parents agreed it would be a waste to let all my hard work go to waste so I applied to nursing school and took out a ridiculous amount of student loans.
Which leads to “some parents, politicians, and educators have questioned whether making condom available should be the job of the school” (Ascd). This group feels that school is for learning subjects such as math, reading, and others not learning how to put on condoms in science class. But little do these people know high school is the main places to inform about sex and give condoms because there are teachers and educators that are ready to inform students. Sex education and condoms will help increase teen sex, this is not true because United States teens are having sex at a younger age without using some type of protect from STDs and pregnancy. Some children may think it 's ok to have sex just because they have a condom but a condom is not always hundred percent.
In the meantime, technology is also made to improve and enhance our daily lives, but sometimes people take their technology for granted; and we become lazy. Instead of walking to school, which requires work, we can now use Hoverboards so we won’t have to put in the work. Yes, it may be a more efficient and faster way of getting to school, but it only makes people lazier and more reliant on other types of transport other than walking. In the book Fahrenheit 451, when Mildred overdoses on sleeping pills, a “machine” is brought into their house to drain all the chemicals out of her, and to replace her contaminated blood.
The therapist is trying to determine different methods and approaching the client with cautious, while incorporating sarcasm and humor to attain a positive results. In this case, the therapist continuously used the “here and now” interactions, his purpose was to ensure that the patient was continuously challenged, and humored. In the end, the therapist was empathetic to the patient’s reluctance in therapy. In conclusion, I have gained a lot of knowledge in regards to the “Here and now” as well as the “empty chair technique”.
Sorry for not writing earlier but Stephanie's right about how we need to connect the issue with topics talked about in class. If you guys think children's diabetes has enough information we can talk about I'm fine with the topic, but if you want a suggestion maybe we can talk about the anti-vaccination movement. We can describe how it's started by the media and changes the attitudes of the parents, and when children get sick it isn't usually the richer kids getting sick but the poor who cannot afford the help needed. But I'm fine with whatever topic we pick as long as we can talk about it fairly easily.
As doing volunteer work and going back to college I could recognize the Millennials. I found Millennials is pushy, loud and very demanding of their wants. I feel the Millennials thinks they should be running companies just because they are more technology smarter they the generations behind
Due to the fact that you can get birth control before the age of twenty-one statics states that women are getting birth control early and are staying in college and finishing it. It can effect a man socially because if he’s not ready to have a child he can be forced into paying for it through the courts and child support. The way birth control has a social impact on both men and women is to basically prevent pregnancies until it is
In a recent interview I did with a fellow classmate, Carmen Li, she talks about how “Going to college is not only the dream of my parents but also mine as well. I want to be a useful person and find a good career to support my family. I don 't want to live in the box under the bridge.” Many first generations can agree with what she said because no parents want their children to be living in a box under the bridge. Parents have high expectations for their children to succeed.
Sex education is very important to not only teach teens about the changes that their bodies are going through thanks to puberty, also to teach teens about the dangers of sex like STD’s, HIV, and pregnancies. Taking sex education out of schools or only teaching abstinence-only does not help students learn how to cope or manage the potential risks or dangers that having unsafe sex can have. This is why I think that sex education should stay in schools and that abstinence-only sex education is not enough. I understand that some parents or important people in the students ' life might have concerns about comprehensive sex education being in schools. They might say that comprehensive sex education could be confusing for students that have religious
Thich Nhat Hahn said in his interview with Oprah that with compassion is smiling, laughing and deep listening. “Listen for one purpose to help him/her to open heart and feel better, suffer less” (Oprah Interview). Thich Nhat Hahn says that it is best to openly listen and to hold your comments and input for another time (Oprah Interview). Thich Nhat Hahn believes that we can end war by communication and by trying to understand others point of views and concerns (Oprah Interview). Another point that stood out to me in Thich
Reading this book has made me think twice about a lot of my ways of thinking. It has made me reevaluate many of my thought processes about people and life. It has shown me great ways of staying positive and projecting that positiveness on to others. If more people could take in these outstanding lessons I believe the world would be over flowing with loving relationships full of happiness.
The experience of our mock Tunnel of Oppression was definitely a fun one. Seeing everyone’s different presentations showed the group’s creative side and also gave some insight on what everyone took away from the class. The latter only continued to show during our conversation after our viewing experience was over. I loved everyone’s input on what the Capstone taught them about service learning. I especially remember what Christian said about how the experience brought certain issues that aren’t given much attention to light.
Even though it can be stressful to have to tell someone that their work isn 't correct, it can still be very beneficial to that person. After the first peer review I became more accepting to the idea of letting someone tell me what was wrong with my paper. I think it’s a great way to get another persons view on your paper. Along with peer reviews are revisions plans and they too can be beneficial because that gives the writer the opportunity to see their mistakes and correct them. On all my assignments I have used these tools and I have also visited the writing center on one of my assignments, which was very helpful.
