Reflection On Interpersonal Communication

Reflection Paper I have taken Interpersonal Communication before during the summer 2016, but I didn’t pass it mainly because I wasn’t as focused as I was in this class. Professor Castro just made it fun. Her lectures and her stories made it interesting. Every Mondays and Wednesdays, I had three classes. Interpersonal Communication would be my first class to start my day. Then two classes after that. I ended up dropping those two classes. I was supposed to drop this class too but I didn’t because I wanted to learn more. I’ve been in a relationship with my girlfriend for almost a year and one of the problems we had was listening. Sometimes she wouldn’t listen to me or I just wouldn’t listen to her at all. The day we had a lecture about listening in class, that same morning, we got in an argument about how I don’t listen to her. I always listen to her but not when we argue. I usually avoid her when we are about to start arguing. I found it funny how the professor somehow knew I was in trouble with listening and she decided to have a lecture on listening. Unlike a history class or a math class or even reading class, this class actually helped me outside of school. I also learned that my professor is a volunteer basically everywhere. She participates in marches whenever she can. Her age doesn’t stop her from making the community better and standing up for what she believes in. She is an inspiration. She asked the class to volunteer somewhere for three hours which was pretty cool. I haven’t had any class in college where volunteering out in the community was a requirement. Because I had to volunteer for a grade in class, I am now volunteering for the resist march in Los Angeles, June 11. I wouldn’t be going out to volunteer for this event if it weren’t for this class. Knowing that my professor goes to protests and marches at her age, she is truly an inspiration. I don’t usually have time to go out to marches anymore but seeing that she still does, I’d want to participate more in the community. Now only problem I had in this class was that I never really had my own seat. I moved to different seats every time we had class. I felt very comfortable sitting in the back, but the professor doesn’t like having students
