I seldom ask for help, and I don’t go out of my way to talk to people. From what I have learned in this course, I think that to some people this might make me look like a jerk. Or that I think I’m better than them. When In reality I’m just a little bit of a socially awkward person. It’s not that I don’t like other people, I just really enjoy spending time with myself. I know a lot of people, but I only have two or three that I consider my friends. I value the quality of my relationships more than the quantity. I would rather go out and do something with one or two friends, rather than a large group. I enjoy having the close relationships with my few friends, I have no desire to fill my life with a ton of superficial friendships that come and go.
I take a lot of pride in the work that I do. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing, it could be playing video games, riding my bike, or at work. When I succeed at something I give myself a lot of credit. To some people this may seem like I’m conceded, or that I like to show off. The reality of it is that rewarding myself for doing something good motivates me to continue to do good things. It’s a way for me to motivate myself. The way I credit myself is not in the fashion of gloating, or showing off my success, but the opposite. I play off my successes like they’re no big deal. To some people I may seem conceded when I accomplish something. For example, when I was in the Army, I was selected for airborne school. Airborne school

The whole course has been absorbing and rewarding. The experience has made me think about the world differently. It even reshaped my private life which will be touched upon later in this reflection.
While I appreciated that one of my peers provided feedback on my work, I feel that the feedback that was provided did not fulfill the assignment. My peer did not provide detailed feedback on my paper that could be adequately incorporated in my review and revisions. Most of the information that was provided as feedback were simply statements that reiterated what the prompt question was. Please see the below feedback provided to me by my peer.
The purpose of this assignment is to self-reflect on what has been learnt in the topic this semester and how it is going to influence as a health professional in our chosen field. This assessment is made to encourage us to be able to identify the values and beliefs we have as individuals and how these impact on our ability to interact without others in a diverse society. This self-reflection will include the results from an Implicit Association Test to help gain a greater awareness of my own unconscious thoughts as well as evidence from reliable sources to help back up statements and give evidence to support this assessment.
A journey is something that must be done in everyone‘s life. The journey starts when the person is born and ends when they die. People are all searching for their own things. Some search for things like: money, power, fame, knowledge, peace, understanding, and a sense of who they are. Some people do just for the thrill of adventure.

As a current Human Service professional, having served in the field for 5 years, I make a difference in the lives of those that matter. I have witnessed many downfalls the people I support experience in their everyday lives. From restaurants not being accommodating to the needs of those I support, people discriminating against those with developmental and intellectual disabilities, to doctors saying people with disabilities are a waste of time. I have witnessed all these issues and matters first hand and it breaks my heart that these issues still arise. I could go on and on all day long about the issues and experiences I have witnessed while assisting those I care for in the community. According to the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act),
Prior to 6th grade I was quiet,bullied a lot so I had no friends no one liked me I was smart but had trouble with my work because I cared about what people thought.
Imagine the world taken over by young children who yield to no one or thing. In a world where everyone does as he or she wanted, much chaos would be present. In Emerson's "Self-Reliance", he shares his version of an ideal society where nobody conforms to one another. Even though his ideas maintain influential in modern society, his impractical world contradicts with human nature and ceases to encourage any nation to establish such a society. I have recently read Ralph Waldo Emerson’s, Self –Reliance, and have many different thoughts about the essay. I personally think he is a weird man. He has many different thoughts that I agree with to a point and some that I just do not agree in at all. In this paper I will argue all of the main
As a whole, this course has helped me to become a more independent learner, by helping to shape the way that I think. Rather than accepting all the concepts I learn, this course has helped me to learn how to challenge concepts. For example, at the beginning of the course I chose the topic food for the group
“When an individual enters the presence of others, they commonly seek to acquire information about him or to bring into play information about him already possessed. They will be interested in his general socio-economic status, his conception of self, his attitude towards them, his competence, his trustworthiness, etc. Although some of this information is sought as an end in itself, there are usually quite practical reasons for acquiring it. Information about the individual helps to define the situation, enabling others to know in advance what he will expect of them and what they may expect of him. Informed in these ways, the others will know
My junior year I was pretty nervous hearing the word college class, worrying that it was going to be harder than any other english class I would of been able to take. But I knew I needed to take the class it would look better on college applications and would get me a better idea how a college class would be, so I would be ready for next year. Something I have learned so far in my English 1101 class, to always read your paper two or three times because you could always miss a mistake that could make or break your grade peer editing is so important. There has been some challenges throughout the semester my biggest thing has been in my papers I have had many run on sentences that I had no idea to fix. If my teacher didn't teach me how to check for it. My papers have improved a lot since I have seen the actual mistakes that I have made because I never had a teacher that peer edited and then showed me how to fix, I never knew how to fix it until now. I plan to improve on my organization in my papers because sometimes I get off track i’ll be talking about something then go straight to a complete different topic. I’m hoping I will improve on that by the end of the year. I plan to improve on many other things in my papers, I know that I have a teacher that will help with my papers.
During the course of the quarter, I feel that I have progressed somewhat. I've gained a lot of knowledge on rhetorical strategies and how to present arguments effectively. In the writings I have written, I feel that each writing works towards meeting the course goals. Logos, ethos, and pathos were strategies and ideas we were introduced to (if not already in the past) and were built upon throughout the quarter. The knowledge gained over the course of the quarter weren't only those three types of appeals. Rhetorical strategies like proposals helped reinforce the course and using rhetorical analysis in different situations have become easier throughout the quarter. I believe that I have made sufficient progress towards becoming a better
The social constructionist perspective holds the view that the self is continuing "shaped and reshaped through interactions with others and involvement in social and cultural activities" (Wetherell & Maybin, 1996, p 220). Social constructionist is concerned with explicating the processes by which people come to describe, explain, or otherwise account for the world (including themselves) in which they live (Gergen, 1971). Thus, the social constructionist approach implies that the self is shaped by social interaction within historical, cultural and social contexts. Social constructionist's apply an analysis of societal level which explain the self through social relations. Conversely, the
