The main components of my cultural identity Many people have interest or pet peeves that mold them into who they are, some have items or mental things that give their culture a way to describe. I would like to explain my cultural identity with these objects that I have had over time. I feel like my bed is of the mental roots of my culture, it’s a key of what gives me success everyday but could also be a result of failure to get rest. My bed isn’t the best but it’s better than nothing, rectangular shaped with light blue sheets and navy blue covers the actual size of the bed comes up to about my hip. The covers are very soft with a cotton type feel, the mattress itself has buttons and little wave designs embedded on it.
Just like how every person has a unique set of fingerprints, everyone has a culture that describes only themselves. In this way, my cultural identity is also unique. Many parts of my identity I have inherited from my ancestors such as my cultural background or social class. Other parts of my identity I received through learning and making decisions such as my hobbies and etiquette. It is with these little matters in life that make me able to identify myself as a unique being to myself and to the people I meet.
My understanding of cultural diversity came very early in my life. I have lived in an open society with no distinct social classes. It is a multicultural society with inhabitants from different continents. I have come to appreciate those whom we do not share the same background. The discoveries I made enticed me to continue exploring more about cultural diversity.
In this story, you are going to learn a little about my culture. A huge part of my culture identity is sports most of the stuff I do on weekends/weekdays are all to do with sports from playing it to watching it to teaching it to hate it everything we do in our family is sports. Also i am going to talk about what my family does during the holidays because I think it's special what we do on holidays one time on the fourth of July we were at a firework show and the bin of fireworks caught on fire and they all went off and someone got hurt so scary. you're going to find out what we do on the holidays and about our sports so enjoy. The reason sports is a huge part of my culture is because every weekend for the seahawks our family/friends get together and watch the games cook food and watch the seahawks win and every week we switch off each others houses.
Throughout my experiences in this course so far, I have had many opportunities to reflect on my own past and have begun to better understand my own cultural identity. It has been much more difficult to wrap my head around than I would have predicted it to be because so many things play into the construction of an identity that it can be hard to look at all of those separate pieces together. My cultural identity, like all others, is more complicated than it first appears. I identify as a white person, a woman, an American, a gay person, and a feminist, just to name a few. While all of these labels carry with them stereotypes and expectations, they also interplay with the cultural influences I was subject to throughout my childhood.
Their own type in which they have made a system for when to walk, when to stop for breaks, and the way they plan their next step in the treacherous trials. Throughout the book, they try to stay organized in their group to try to defeat the trials, making their own little culture without realizing it. The reason that their culture is so important to the setting is how when the author shows the way the people interact with each other, it gives a clearer idea to what the setting may look like based on how they are acting, without bluntly stating the setting. Also, the setting can be the atmosphere in addition to physical features, and a huge portion of that atmosphere is the culture represented by that group. Now, not only is this an intense and memorable setting because of the culture, but some of the vivid descriptions in the novel paint a clear and picture in ones head while reading.
It’s odd, this preference. Why does pop culture matter so much? Personally, having characters who concurrently live in the same timeline as us just heightens the whole reading experience for me. Suddenly the impossible feels very plausible. I can relate.
Christmas time is mostly an important time for all families and friends to gather and share memories, the birth of Jesus, and also the exchanging of gifts. As I grew up every year around Christmas time was always very exciting. Knowing it’d be Christmas day soon and I could open presents but most importantly being able to go pick out a tree. The joy of going out in the air, and looking through a variety of trees to choose from. They were all so bold and beautiful, it was very hard to be able to choose which one I thought would be the best for our house.
Whether you take a trip to the movie theater with your friends and family, or just sitting living room before you go to bed. The best thing about movies is you can live or ride throughout someone else's story. With all different ranges of feeling. Like happy, sad, scared, or excited to see what happens next. With that being said, my favorite movie of all time is Pacific Rim.
