Every action a person takes is the result of having thought about what it is they think they should do and then doing it. Life is riddled with problems that require solving. Decisions are complex matters that require careful judgment and problem analysis especially when one is in a role where others look up to them and are affected by their decisions.
Thomm Quackenbush said “The seed of an urban legend find fertile soil at the corner of tragedy and imagination” in his book We Shadows. The image of Slenderman was created both in Anissa’s and Morgan's head and that eventually lead to the stabbing of Payton Leutner. Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser believed in the urban legend of Slenderman, causing them to commit this horrid act. Slenderman isn’t the only urban legend told to scare individuals the Grimm brothers introduced urban legends idea during the 19th century. Throughout the years children have become more interested in urban legends due to technology and that is why this legends sparked Anissa and Morgan to almost kill their friend.
Decisions are something we face constantly every day, whether its choosing what to say, which way to go, or even what your gonna eat. We all make decisions some can be hard and so simple.
I would like to begin by saying thank you to all of the therapists and technicians from Sunbelt Apopka for making me feel welcomed. Also I thank the therapists for allowing me to volunteer and observe this summer. Out of all the places I could have had my first shadowing experience I am so glad it took place at your facility. This opportunity allowed me to learn more in depth about careers in speech, physical, and occupational therapy. I now know that speech-language pathologists are not limited to treating only speech problems; they are capable of treating patients with swallowing complications as well. As you guys may know, I am still indecisive between pursuing a career in physical or occupational therapy. Volunteering however did help me to better understand their differences and similarities. Both physical and occupational therapy focus on working with patients with their body movements. More specifically, physical therapists provide services in helping patients in restoring functions and improving their physical mobility. While occupational therapists work with patients to improve their ability to perform tasks in their daily living and working environments. Based on my observation, all these rehabilitation professions serve an equal importance in the healing process of a patient.
Craig Lambert, the author of “Our Unpaid, Extra Shadow Work,” obviously believes that society should not have created shadow work. According to Craig Lambert, Dr. Illich states that “shadow work was all the unpaid labor- including, for example, housework- done in a wage-based economy”. Lambert makes very strong and good arguments that back up his claim. These arguments are mainly about why society should pay people for the work that they do for themselves. Things such as pumping one’s own gas or typing one’s own papers like a secretary would. Lambert also tries to prove that technology ironically has made more jobs than it has eliminated. However, there is also another side to the argument. Shadow work creates a more independent and developmental society at the cost of exhaustions such as fatigue and being overworked.
When doing rounds and sitting at the desk with Megan at Ross, I learned a lot about the specific procedures needed to be done at each task. The atmosphere is different at each task, considering that desk duty is more laid back while rounds consisted of being more alert with the surrounding area. While each are polar opposites of one another, they are both crucial when working as an RA.
When the narrator’s conscious tries to talk with his unconscious they don’t quite understand each other. This is made obvious when the narrator tries to talk to Daniel about the sea, a topic that he knows interests Daniel. The narrator reflects, “Even when we talked about the sea, the conversation didn’t interest him for long. He’d listen for a moment, ask a question or two, then realize that we were talking not about the sea but about swimming or deep-sea fishing, about beaches or sunbathing....That wasn’t the sea he wanted to hear about. He was interested in a different sea—we didn’t know which one, but a different one” (Le Clézio). The conscious is not able to communicate well with the subconscious, and vice versa. The unconscious is unable
A human shadow, in its most basic form, requires three things: exposure to a light source, a person, and a surface to cast the shadow onto. A shadow’s form is entirely dependent on the person creating the shadow, and its light source; it can move, shrink, stretch, and stay still, based off of those movements made by its creator and the respective position of the light. But what is a shadow that does not have a creator, or person, blocking the light beams from reaching the desired surface? And how does one’s perception of a shadow change when viewing a shadow of this type? On the morning August 6th, 1945, the thermal radiation emitted from the nuclear bomb “Little Boy” ripped through the city of Hiroshima, immediately killing approximately

Improving your understanding of your own decision-making process can boost the understanding of these complex frameworks and how they relate to each other. The more you understand about your personality and ability to make decisions, the better you will become in using your strengths to your advantage.
Decisions! Decisions! Decisions! How do you make decisions? Have you ever asked yourself, “How did I make that decision?” Whether big or small, important or not so important, decision making is a process. Some people way the pros and cons while others may just flip a coin. Are decisions based on feelings, outcomes or information? Often times if we just go with our gut feeling will be miss out on important information that should be included in our decision.
The student I chose to follow for a shadow study is a junior girl who has been very open in class about expressing her opinion. The student is in my cooperating teacher’s Basic Geometry class during second block. I picked this particular student because my cooperating teacher told me a story about how last year this student yelled at a substitute teacher while he was absent and walked out of class. Also, I have seen how this student interacts with her peers in my cooperating teacher’s classroom. I found it interesting to see how the other teachers work with her. This will give me an insight on how to structure the class when I teach. I also have this student’s younger sister in Algebra I. She is a freshman, and I never would have guessed that they were sisters until she told me. The schedule is a block schedule, so each class is ninety minutes except seminar at the end of the day, which is thirty minutes. Since seminar is a study hall, I decided not to shadow her during that class.
