Hope blog # 6

Image result for hope quotesMy reflection on hope is being happy, but also knowing the fact that I can still be in pain as well. My parents gives me hope, because they let me know that everything is going to be okay. When I feel sad, my parents are always here for me. They help me get over my problems and help me when I do have a problem. I'm not saying that I don't get along with my parents but not everyone is perfect. My parents and I have our differences and we understand that. Another thing that gives me hope is my sister, she's always been there for me when I need her and when I don't. She helped me grow as a better and stronger person. Even though we don't see eye to eye at times I know she will always be there for me and i'm not saying this because she's my sister. I really do and truly mean it. I love my parents and sister with all my heart and no one can replace that bond that we all have even when times are hard and rough. Hope is something I really admire because not everyone feels the same way like I do. Sometimes i'm at my lowest part in life and I think about what my parents would do or say and it gives me hope on how I can solve my problems or situation that I might be in. As a kid i'm still learning what hope is but for right now I thinking i'm getting the meaning. When I become an young adult I will know the meaning what hope really means. The last way I get hope is being happy and myself. I feel like being myself and being happy or even smiling through tough situation can make a big difference.

Blog Post #5 (Omelas)

The story "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas," talks about the unhappy actions in one person just some the many can be happy. There's a saying that said, "sometimes you have to sacrifice the few to save the many." I honestly I feel like its a true and false statement at the same time. The saying is true because one person can't make the whole town depress or just a bad and lonely town. Also, the saying is false as well. Its false because that one person is a human being, he or she is a living thing. All lives matter in the world, it doesn't matter how big or how small the living thing is. So therefore, the story The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas has something similar. The city Omelas is a very happy and cheerful town but there's one person that has to suffer so everyone can be happy. This little boy or girl is living in a basement with very little food and water. In the story the kid lives in place where there's no windows for sunlight. The ones who walk away are the ones who saw the truth in what the kid has to go through everyday in hes or her life.

Blog Post #4 Justice

In this Ted Talk I learned that a lady name Kimberle Crenshaw. She talks about the killings of Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and Mike Brown. The four boys were killed over the last 2 years by a police. Also, she talks about how police violence are against African American, especially violence against women. A lady named Emma tried looking for a job and she wasn't hired for that job. Emma thought she didn't get the job because she is African American. The African American people that were hired for that job is only African American men. The job was being a custodian, but the other job that was hiring as well was working in a office. Only white women were allowed to work in that job position. Emma didn't think it was fair that only black men and white women were the only ones to get a job, she thinks it should be a fair amount for everyone. In my opinion I think that everyone should get a chance to work were they want to work at. Image result for social justice

Blog Post #3 Happiness

This blog post I learned that designing objects can have an effect on someones happiness. Stefan Sagmeister said he was happy while experiencing designs. The visualization of happiness can be better than talking about it on the phone or in person. There's a few designs that makes Stefan happy, such as not trying to hold onto grudges. Something that caught my attention from watching this ted talk was a man buying speak bubbles that were stickers, and he stuck them on poster and he left the bubbles blank. People that seen them were able to write on them and people enjoyed and laughed at the joke on the stickers. Stefan said designing objects can make someone smile and laugh. You can see the end results of seeing someone enjoying design. You can design anything you want, you just have to put your mind to it.

Blog Post #2 Gilbert Ted Talk

Image result for happiness

Dan Gilbert ted talk, talks about how synthetic and natural happiness affected people. He talks about getting synthetic happiness because we as people think happiness is the thing to be found in our life. But our happiness finds us, because when happiness finds us its the unexpected. We don't realize that our synthetic happiness isn't actually happiness that we want. Another happiness we might have is natural happiness. Natural happiness comes when we are real enjoying life and not just in the moment. Natural happiness is when you actually get something that you always wanted. Once in awhile everyone gets natural and synthetic happiness, I say this because I feel like not everyone could just have natural happiness all the time. Sometimes I get synthetic happiness because I would get something that I really want but I end up getting something totally different then what I was expecting. Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being or defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Being happy is a mental states that may also reflect judgement by a person about their overall well-being.

Happiness blog post 1

Image result for a picture of happinessAny little thing can make someone happy, than what they already are. Making someone else happy can put a smile on your face. Having happiness in your life can make a good reflection on you now or in the future. I feel like it would have a good impact on you now because family, friends or just people around you would see you having a good time and a good day. Also, it would have a good impact for you in the future because you know that the people or anything in your life now would make you happy in the future and you should consider to keep in your life. Sometimes you don't know when your happy sometimes your just in the moment and your feeling some type of way. Making someone happy that I do or don't know always makes my day. Just the fact putting people in a good mood, makes me feel really good about myself. Happiness a lot to me, because sometimes I'm really not in the mood for any jokes and games. When I'm not in the mood for anything, sometimes i have to think to myself and say if this and this didn't happened for a reason then whats the of going through something hard. Also my friends and family always find a way to cheer me up.

Identities blog # 3

October 12, 2016

Identity makes people who they are today. Such as how the way people act around other students. If a student was acting out at school, because he or she want the attention from teaches or from other students. In the Ted talk that I watched the lady said that every Chinese zodiac sign represents us in every way. Some people sign was a rat, dragon, tiger and etc. The Chinese zodiac sign is label with animals and also the signs are a 12 year cycle. The sign starts with a rat and ends with a pig, and parents would think giving birth in a certain year would make the baby special. Certain zodiac signs get along and others don't get along with other signs.
