According to Granovetter, whether a tie is strong or not is dependent on four factors: amount of time spent together, emotional intensity, intimacy, and reciprocity of services. I tend to define my personal networks as with lots of weak ties, and a few strong ties. Strong ties offer me emotional support and huge favors, and weak ties are good information sources.
Over my years of school, one big influence on me has always been sports. Ever since a young age, I have always enjoyed playing and watching sports. In my four years in high school, I have fell in love with the sport of lacrosse.
I woke up and took one bite out of my pop tart but that one bite was all I could eat. My legs were shaking, and my heart was pounding. My dad told me, “It is a true honor to even make it this far so go out there and have some fun.” Once I heard this statement, I knew I was ready to go. I arrived at school and boarded the bus. The car ride was an hour and fifteen minutes of hearing the squeaking of the wheel on the bus. My teammates were getting their heads ready for the big game.
What have you learned in the class so far? In this class, I have learned many new skills to improve my writing, and I have also learned new grammar rules. In regards to my writing, I have learned the importance of freewriting when beginning to write a paper. Additionally, I now know to allow ample time for revising and editing because I can look at my work critically for mistakes and make necessary changes. Furthermore, I have learned about grammar rules such as pronoun-antecedent agreement. This rule is something that I know subconsciously, but being made aware of it has allowed me to find mistakes I make more often.
3 things of significance you learned - and why significant. 1. The 2nd case study made me reflect on my first head coaching job in football. I was hired by a school in south Texas with the help of a friend I coached with in Oklahoma. He had moved back to his hometown and started teaching and coaching at his high school. He contacted me about the opening and two months later I was hired. I hired him to be one of my assistants and even made sure that he was paid well as a thank you. I was very disappointed with the way he coached that year. I had already make arrangements to move him to a non-coaching position for the next season. I realize I never spoke with him about my expectations or made him aware of how I felt during the season. I identity with Dr. Skinner is some regards. I was caught up in the other aspects of teaching, coaching, and AD duties, I neglected to take care of that issue. I understand that it is OK to hire a trusted colleague or friend but the expectations of them should not be any different of anyone else.
Just so you know, this is the Big Apple and I rule this town. New York City is filled with tall buildings, great culture, and historical sites. No other city has so much beauty that it takes your breath away; yet, there is a real danger that lurks on the streets. I should know because I am Detective Michael Morgan a United States Super Spy in charge of capturing dastardly villains who are set on destroying our world. Armed with mind-altering powers, Alex Higgins is on the top of the FBI’s list of the ten most wanted men in America. This thug is one of the greatest danger to our world and must be captured and jailed in the vault of death. There is no place safe for him to hide from the law and rumor has it, he is in my town. You break the law here in New York City, you pay the ultimate price: freedom.
“I began learning long ago that those who are the happiest are those who do the most for others.” Booker T. Washington’s wise words accurately summarize what I learned throughout high school. I noticed that selfish people are the unhappiest and most discontent. In sharp contrast, I
I plan to improve this disposition by having boundaries and limits. It does not matter if the client shares the same cultural beliefs from me, I have a lot of compassion and go an extra mile to help them. I get attach with clients right away because I see a connection with them. I have noticed that clients take advantage of my empathy. I need to work on how to understand my clients but also have limits with them so they will not take advantage of my kindness.
It was finally the end of third period and everyone eagerly left class to go to lunch. I wasn't a big fan of lunch because I had no one to sit with witch made me stand out in a crowed making it easy for my tormentors to track me down. "Hey loser" someone snarls from behind me. I turn around to find myself facing Laurie, she's always picked in me for as long as I can remember no after awhile she someone found herself a boyfriend who started doing the same.
What I Learned Over Break Owing to various reasons, I learnt a lot over break. Whether it was through writing these journals, or just through being home for a significant amount of time for the first time since I left for college, I gained a lot of insight about myself that I didn’t have before. I think the biggest realization I made is that I am the only one that can actually spark a change in me. I think most of the things I’ve written about have been in my head but I never took the time to go through them. I knew what I was doing wrong but never thought about how I could fix it and this break allowed me to go the extra step and think about that.
What did you learn? I did not really learn anything new although I thought it was very informational for those who did not know about what a substantial source is and how to find out if it is a good one.
As a college student, I am growing mentally and physically. I learned how to communicate with others, manage my responsibilities, realize my abilities and be confident in my life. This course is assisting me in my growth by every Saturday learning a new capability about myself and enriching my mind. Also is helping manage my emotions since I am taking phycology I know more about my depression and anxiety plus I learned that many people have and have experienced the same emotions I have been experiencing.
This semester has been a challenge for me. Before, I arrived in this class I didn’t know certain things. I never been a good write but this class has pushed me to work harder. I have always been good at speaking my point out verbally, instead of writing it out..
I'm glad Carla that it worked out well with telling David and Michel... and that's how relationships are... sometimes steps forward and sometimes step... but when two people truly care about each other they will work past and overcome all the obsticles. Okay, so I was thinking... I would like to take you out to dinner when arrive on Thursday night in SLC... would that be to late for you? Oh, there are some really nice places to go hiking as well in the area. I have only been to the airport in SLC and don't really know the city to well, but it sounds like there is quite a bit to see and do. I saw on the Internet early this morning that there is a big fútbol game in town with the Salt Lake team playing against my daughter's home-town team...the Portland timbers... but it is scheduled for one week after we leave. Lastly, I would love to talk to you tonight if you are free? I had a really good bible time today and there was just so much to absorb and so many wonderful things to apply to my own life. I really enjoyed Jacob's journey with how he and Rachel got together, and like the verse that says, "So Jacob worked seven years to pay for Rachel. But his love for her was so strong that it seemed to him but a few days." (Genesis 29: 20). Dont worry... I'm not focusing on the love part of that verse, but rather how Jacob must have been a very patient man and willing to wait for however long to be with Rachel. Well, I'm not say that I particurly want to wait 7 years for you, but I do care about you and am willing to be patient in all of this! How's your headache? I hope that you are getting some R&R in today, because I know that you are a very hard worker.
Overall, I want to be able to use the skills that I have learnt in class in everyday life, not like other things you learn where most people cannot use in the real world. I want to not be caught off guard when confronted and be able to handle conflicts with a mature and graceful manner. I should not have to be scared when someone stands up to me and tells me when I did something wrong, as long as they are not screaming at me or threatening to hurt me if I do not change then who am I to get mad. The sad thing about people in today’s society, is that more and more being are beginning to be aggressive and violent when approached the wrong way. People are actually dying due to road rage scuffles, or hurting each other for the best deals on materialistic
