The gym was also split up using cone to create an individual space for the bikes and a reading center.

Prior to my visit with Russell Dora talked to me about the phone conversation between her and Russell.
Arizona Western College is very busy during the fall semester, there are many students so as a result classrooms are always packed, Starbucks is always busy and the cafeteria is usually crowded. While walking around campus you see students and staff members participating in different activities such as working on homework, having lunch, or sitting at a table with friends to have a decent conversation. It’s very rare that you see a student use the spare time they have in between classes to work on projects that are hobbies and not class related. Students like Johnathon Valenzuela a 22 years old who is currently in his second year at Arizona Western College as a student and an employee in hopes of obtaining an art degree. Usually people
In the highly didactic novel, Charlotte Temple by Susanna Rowson, there is a consistent and prominent lesson regarding bad karma. Rowson implies that mistreating one’s trust can result in bad karma, even death. Rowson demonstrates this lesson to her mainly young and female audience through the events that occurred to Charlotte Temple and Mademoiselle La Rue. In the novel, Charlotte being highly malleable, allows Mademoiselle La Rue to convince her to elope with her lover, John Montraville. Once in America, La Rue betrays the indigent Charlotte Temple in order to secure her wealth and her arbitrary marriage with Mr.Crayton.
On September 25th and 26th, we observed several groups in the Dickinson dining hall (C4) during dinner hours. There were around 40-50 humans present. The dining hall offers several long tables toward the middle of the room and other smaller tables along the perimeter. The lighting was bright, encouraging an upbeat mood (unlike if the lights were dimmed which would bring a more relaxed mood). The room was noisy with talking and laughing.
Our deviant field observation act was playing cards in the middle of a shopping aisle in a big store. This is deviant due to the violation of social expectations of what to do in a normal grocery store. Trent and I both played the classic game of “Go fish” sitting across from each other horizontally so it blocked the aisle and made the situation uncomfortable for anyone wanting to go down the aisle. Our hypothesis was that everyone would be extremely uncomfortable and would most likely turn away and not say anything. We first started our act of deviance in the toy aisle with Trent’s little brother filming the experiment.
Anthony Giles is 54 years old. According to Erikson’s stages of psychosocial development, he is in the generativity versus stagnation stage.

Sliding the shifter into the park position lets me know another day at Cave City High School has begun. It is September, so we are in that season of the year when it is a big furry coat from grandma last year in the morning and then flip flops and shorts in the afternoon. Stepping out of my car, I feel the cool air nip at my ears and nose, certainly turning them that slightly embarrassing shade of rosy pink. The sun is peaking over the football stadium behind me, turning everything a bright golden hue. Shadows begin to slowly creep away as the sun moves further up into the fluffy cloud streaked blue beyond.

I learned something very important as I visited and did research on Palm Beach Atlantic University; it is a place where the spiritual aspect of my life could be an integral part of my college experience. I believe that at PBA. , I can achieve both my short- and long-term goals as someone who wants to follow in the path God has laid out for me. I look forward to intertwining my Christian beliefs with my academic and social endeavors at PBA, knowing that God has his hand on my shoulder leading me in the right direction. The morals and policies of the school fit me as an individual because I choose to be involved with activities that contribute to my personal and spiritual development.
People watching is a common pastime in our society, and let’s face it, it is instinctive. Being a keen observer of those around you can give you insight into different behaviors, which can be invaluable in your day to day life. For my social observation assignment, I decided to observe the social norms at the Cherry Creek mall. I was able to view all different types of people from children to elderly adults as they acted and reacted to established and accepted behaviors of society. Children are great subjects to observe because they do the things that adults avoid in public.
