The Problem I Want to Solve
For the most part, the problem I want to solve has remained the same throughout the weeks. I am eager to manage and ultimately own a business in the interior decorating field. I aim for my business to inspire others with our decor and style. I want my employees to be able to create a beautiful space with whatever they are given, and I want my clients to be so happy with the results and make their house a place they are happy to call home. This has been a dream of mine since I was young, but as sad as it sounds, dreams do not always come true, and things get in the way. Unfortunately, not all of these obstacles are external. Often times, we get down on ourselves and lose sight of what we want. Instead of focusing on the good in us, we recognize the bad. However, one thing that stood out to me in chapter 3 was this quote: “If you learn to celebrate and appreciate who you are and the special qualities and experiences you bring, you can maintain that dignity of self that allows you to ride the locomotive rather than being swept beneath it” (Bain, 2012, p. 88). Modeling Diversity & Inclusion
I foresee the biggest challenge in solving my problem myside bias. Myside bias is thinking from your own perspective and taking your own side without considering alternative viewpoints. Like I already mentioned, I am eager to manage and ultimately own a business in the interior decorating field. I aim for my business to inspire others with our decor and

There are few things more satisfying than knowing you have just made someone’s day or knowing that you made someone feel so much better about themselves, and as an esthetician you get to do this every day. Being an esthetician is a career filled with gratification and “thank yous”. To become an esthetician, it is usually required that you have your high school diploma, GED, or an equivalent to enroll in beauty school to complete an esthetics training program. In some states, they will accept students who completed as little as only their freshman year of high school. Depending which school you go to, you will need to complete a certain number of hours before graduating. Most schools require 600 hours, but some require as much as 1,000 hours or as little as 250. You must also pass a state license exam.
My research essay is based on esthetics and what I have researched about this career in the esthetics industry. The job outlook for estheticians and skin care specialists is very good. The BLS states that job outlook projections through the year 2014 for esthetcians is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations. There are so many different job opportunities for both veteran and newly licensed estheticians. Salons and spas are a great place to start off as an esthectician. And of course there are also dermatologists' offices and other medical settings in which an esthetician could work. Not to mention, you could go into business for yourself and independently provide esthetics and skin
As to unknown bias, I am unsure how I can control such things, or when they will surface. I can only learn in this program how some things I do and say come off to other people and work through to achieve the needed balance discussed, which would not apply to clients. With clients, I need to adjust my self, because it is simply different, they come first.
As the 19th century English poet, Robert Browning, puts it, “Better have failed in the high aim, As I/Than vulgarly in the low aim succeed”. In other words, Browning believes that it is more important to fight for achievements that do not only better oneself, but effect change on a deeper level are more honorable, in contrast to the quest for personal gratification. The secular pursuit of wealth or ‘success’ does not always result in one’s life changing for the better. The job promotion you have been eyeing does not come with the promise
Throughout all of high school my friends and I spent the majority of our days in the art room. It was always assumed that there would be at least a few of us there at all times, starting our days there, being excused by our teachers to go there during class, during lunch, between every class, and then for hours after school. The art room was practically a second home to all of us. With the best high school art program in the state paired with a school of students who have been taught to appreciate art all throughout school; amazing, talented, passionate art teachers; and extremely dedicated art students who, on top of normal classes, were taking on very intense art courses, those who invested the time became quite advanced art students.
As a psychology student with an extensive background in Fine Arts, I bring a unique perspective to the mental health field. My interest in psychology began with the curiosity regarding the relationship between art and mental health. South Korea, my birthplace, has some of the longest working hours of any country. While working in Korea, I witnessed the results of work-related stress such as depressive mood and anxiety. However, there existed stigma related to mental disorders due to cultural expectations. Rather than visiting professionals in the mental health industry, many ascribed mental instabilities to their lack of willpower. This phenomenon spurred me to consider artistic activities in dealing mental distress. Eventually, I was motivated to study Psychology at Ryerson University; I hope to keep my path toward Art Therapy at Concordia University.
Interior design and architecture are essential, and often overlooked, aspects of everyday life. In modern society people rely on function, durability, and visual appeal when selecting designs for their homes, businesses, and places of leisure. The way that a space is designed influences such things as mood, which, in the case of a business, can impact the productivity of employees and either draw or repel customers. In residential design, the design becomes very personal and, to be considered a successful design, must properly reflect the home owner while at the same time offering some practicality that makes the space livable. An effective design, for any space, must solve some problem, be it function, flexibility, or some other criteria. Simply solving a problem would not please the customer, however, unless it offered some visual appeal. Creating function with style is the real job of any interior designer, and is essential in a content society.
Rathnasambhava, the Transcendent Buddha of the South and Madonna Enthroned are very similar images that were produced by very different cultures. Both images were produced during the 13th Century. The image of Rathnasambhava, the Transcendent Buddha of the South was produced in Tibet during an interesting period of the country’s religious history. The branch of Tibetan Buddhism is led by a religious and sometimes political leader called the Dalai Lama. It was during the 13th Century during the reign of Kublai Khan, around the time of the production of this painting, that Tibet experienced the first incarnation of the Dalai Lama. One has to wonder if this painting is somehow related to that occurrence. According to
I was having just such a day, on a Saturday in November of 1996. I was sitting at the counter of my book store, “Booked Solid.” It was the culmination of my dreams and my place of joy. I had opened up the store, arranged my seasonal bulletin board, and brewed fresh coffee and tea for any customer who wanted a warm drink while browsing through the 15,000 books the store offered. I had a sense of elation and anticipation, a common state of mind when I was alone with my thoughts and the beauty of my store. To some it might have seemed a modest if not simple 900 square- foot space, but to me it represented my independence and achievement against the barriers of working full time as a nurse, the lack of husband support, and raising three demanding boys. It was my haven.
Prior to attending the University of St. Thomas, Jon grew up locally, right here in the Twins Cities. He had a passion for design and thought he’d pursue a career as an architect. However, like many (myslef included) calculous was not his cup of tea and had to divert to another career path. That path was within real estate. He has been able to utalize his eye for design and help future home buyers visualize what their house would look like with some constructional modifications. As he gained more experience in the field, he fell in love with the flexibility that came with his career path. He mentioned that he loved not being constrained by a cubical and enjoys interacting with people and the outside world. He hope to be able to flip hounders of houses one day. To be able to enjoy this freedom and attain this dream of his, he conveyed a few tips that I feel as though can be applied to anyone.
My interest in interior design commenced in middle school during a project on various careers. Since then, it has become an ever-developing passion. Interior design has manifested itself into my daily thoughts. I constantly look at my surroundings, wondering what I could do to change the room into a more practical space. This fuels my thirst for further knowledge. The only way to gain this knowledge is to get a degree and learn through practical application. My educational and professional career objectives are to obtain a bachelor of fine arts in interior design and to succeed as a commercial interior designer.
Self-portraits have been used by artists for centuries to explore aspects of the self. They are the subjects they know best and artists have reflected this through their treatment of media, subject matter and techniques. Two artists who explore aspects of their personality and life experiences in their self-portraits are Frida Kahlo and Ben Quilty. Many of their artistic techniques can be derived from the same origins. Whilst there are similarities in self-portraits by any artist usually, you will find differences the norm. After all, this is what makes art and art form.
The place where I feel the most comfortable, and show my personality, is my bedroom. This is the place where I can really be myself and do what I want; it’s the place I come home to, and wake up every day. My room makes me feel comfortable because it is my own space. My house is always crazy, with my dog barking, and my siblings running around making noise, my room is the only place in the house where I can come and relax without caring about everything else, the only place that I can go to clear my mind.
The fashion design career, has recently emerged as one of the most popular and competitive among young people.
