My goals are simple and not extravagant. I am actually content with my life as it is now. But without goals there is no true reason to get up in the morning. I think once a person succeeds everything sets out to then why are they still here. So setting goals is very important and then once the goals are met always have new goals you would like to acheieve.
My first goal is family orientated. I am a father of one and one on the way. I just want to be a better dad then what I had. My dad was never there and talking with other dads we have figured out that 90 percent of being a good parent is just showing up. You will never have an individual that thinks you are a super hero right away. My son thinks I am the greatest and I never had to do anything astrodinary all I had to do was be there for him. Laugh with him when he’s playing and be there to correct him when he gets into trouble. He makes it so easy to do really. I have never knew what love was till he was born. Do not get me wrong I love my wife but there is something about him he cannot take care of himself. Having someone truly rely on you for everything brings a sense of responsibility I never knew. He brings out the best in me. I have been through some tough times through my life and he came along at one of the toughest. I thought I was done I was struggling emotionally through events that happened when I was deployed and friends and family I had lost. I thought he was just going to add to the stress of everything but he didn’t he help me overcome it. He made me stronger and realizes that no matter how bad it was getting I could never hit bottom with him in my life. I owe him my life and I mean that. I just hope that I can be the best father I can be. So my first and most important goal is fatherhood. I do not expect to be the greatest dad in the world. I just want to show up when I…...

The Power to See Ourselves

...Reaction Paper: “The Power to See Ourselves” Not everyone has a positive and optimistic perception of themselves. People are so in tuned to their own insecurities, emotions, and thoughts this perception can be placed on others in the world and in the work place. In Paul Brouwer’s “The Power to See Ourselves,” this negative focus of perception is explained and solutions to change the perception are discussed. In every social interactions that we have with someone we are given a set of instructions. They can be good, bad, or indifferent. Until we can come to terms with who we are, we are always going to be a reflection of the opinions and thoughts of others. Brouwer (1964) states that “…there is a crucial matter of disparity between “how I see myself” and “how others see me.” I agree with this statement. There is always going to be that difference. Someone might think that they a hardworking, open, beautiful person. Someone else might look at that person and see none of the things. This is true in the workplace. Thinking that you are a good leader and being a good leader are two different thoughts and things. We must learn to take these perceptions and analyze our self-perception and make changes. I also agree with Brouwer (1964) when he talks about self-perception and its relation to effectiveness on the job. I find this to be a true thought. If we were to have a better self-view then we would in turn increase our productiveness and become a more valuable asset to our......

See No Evil

...English See No Evil In the chapter “See No Evil” in the book The Flight of the Iguana the author, David Quammen makes an important statement when he says, “ I do not trust any animal with more than six legs and two eyes”(Quammen 40). I find this statement to be so important because here we have David Quammen an author with a true love for nature and he struggles with his personal bias against animals. It is in this facet of the chapter in which I am able to connect my personal struggle with a bias. When walking into my first day of high school I was extremely nervous, not knowing exactly what to expect I didn’t go into the situation with an open mind. As I sat down for my first math class a foreign boy entered the room gazing for a seat. I remember vividly, for some reason not wanting the boy to sit next to me so I stared down at the desk, refusing to look up. Starring down at the desk I heard as the foot steps became louder and louder. Finally looking up I watched the foreign looking student sit down directly next to. After an awkward 15 minutes of no conversation the student turned to me and introduced him self saying his name was Egzon and that he was from Albania. Class after class we would have small conversations and I would do my best to seem uninterested. It was not only until our fifth class together till I realized how ignorant I was being. As I thought more about my situation going into high school, I soon observed that Egzon was the only kid that had made an......

...their statistical associations. Results indicated that (a) MMORPG players are significantly more likely to experience gaming-related problems relative to nonplayers, and that (b) the gaming motivations escapism and mechanics significantly predicted excessive gaming and appeared as stronger predictors than time investment in game. The findings support the necessity of using measures that distinguish between different types of online games. In addition, this study proves useful regarding the current discussion on establishing (online) gaming addiction as a diagnosis in future categorizations of psychopathology. Introduction M assively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPGs) have become increasingly popular with games such as World of Warcraft being played by more than 11 million people worldwide.1 A MMORPG can be defined as a game in which numerous players around the globe inhabit a single virtual realm simultaneously, adopt alternative personas, and interact with one another in multiple ways, and thus these games provide a variety of incentives for play. Preliminary evidence suggests that individuals in different age groups can develop problematic patterns of online gaming behavior, including children,2 adolescents,3 and young adults,4 indicating that excessive gaming is not only a problem for socially withdrawn adolescent gamers.5 It has been argued that some players meet criteria similar to those for substance dependence.6–8 A recent systematic review9 indicated...

‘We See Examples of Design Throughout the Natural World and Conclude That an Intelligent Designer Is Clearly Demonstrated.’ Assess Whether This Argument Succeeds.

...‘We see examples of design throughout the natural world and conclude that an intelligent designer is clearly demonstrated.’ Assess whether this argument succeeds. The idea of an intelligent designer has split philosophers down the middle. Many different arguments are proposed by philosophers on each side as to why an Intelligent designer exists or doesn't exist. Arguments both from and for design present clearly that there is a god and we know this just by looking at objects around us. However it can be questionable that would an intelligent designer design diseases such as cancer , this rules out the possibility of an omnipotent designer. Examples of design are practically ever, from the printer that printed this work to the waterproofing of feathers on ducks. It is clear to us that a printer has been designed as it would be near impossible that it grew from a tree or just appeared. If I was to say a flying bee is more complex than a printer it would be hard to conceive. However the science or printers has been around for many years now and they are fairly easy to explain, but the flight of bee, a natural object, an insect, has only been understood in recent years. If a printer, which at face value seems more complex than a bee has been designed surely reason permits us to assume that a bee would have also been designed. You don't have to look very far to see evidence of design, a human eye provides a perfect example of design, it is made up of loads of tiny......

How to See the World

...Memorandum: To: Jane Allridge, CEO From: Ellen Franks, Travel Agent Date: June 12, 2014 Re: How to See the World We live in a very diverse world with a large variety of cultures. There is so much to see and so little time. What is the best way to travel to see as much as you can in a limited amount of time? The answer to that question is Cruises. Cruises have so much to offer. Your accommodations, food, and entertainment is fully provided on the ship. During the day you have the opportunity to explore on your own or to take excursions to various sites of the local areas. Each day you travel to another port and then see something new. It is possible in a 10 day cruise to see 8-10 different cities within a number of different cultures. There are cruises all over the world. Also different types of cruises. There are river cruises and ocean cruises. Another mode of travelling to see the world is travelling by rail. Especially in Europe, and Great Britain. They travel quite quickly and in a week or two, can have travelled through a number of cities and countries. They are fast and affordable. When people are talking about not sure about how they want to travel, try to find out their interests and then make some suggestions on how they could accomplish this with the various modes of travel that we have access to. If you want any further information please feel free to ask....

The End of the World as I See It

... The End Of The World As I See It When I started to form tiny fractions of memories, China’s booming economy, its open-door policy, and big social reforms began taking places as it leaped into the 2000 millennial. All these changes lead to a more vivid and intermixing culture where novel lifestyle, alternative thoughts, and "non-traditional" religions like Christianity can thrive. I was lucky to be standing at the crossroad where China started to embrace different cultures and various religions. Thanks to the opened-up culture atmosphere, I was exposed to the clash of cultures between western ideology and traditional Confucianism thoughts. The word “apocalypse” was not even in my dictionary previously until Hollywood introduced it to me in the most dramatic ways I could possibly imagine, and ever since my speculation of the Apocalypse never stopped evolving. From more unrealistic predictions involving in zombies, Godzilla, and DNA-modified prehistoric killer dinosaurs, to more practical speculations like nuclear war and ozone depletion, I was constantly updating my Apocalypse view. With my increasing understanding of the mechanism of how the world functions as a whole, I realized that a global hot war is imminently possible since politics can exert a strong influence on the global situation. In a sense, the transformation China experienced was a direct result from the power of politics. In this essay, I will establish the following hypothesis: The world is going to end......

Robby and his friend followed the footsteps that you had to be a gangster, that’s the only way people would respect you. It was the place that Robby was introduced to the streets, the parties, the dope, and the crime. The key role of telling the story is Robby `s mother. Her point of view is emotional in the story.

World

...all depending upon who is answering this question. After reading this week’s chapters we learn that a world view is made up for 3 components, all of which can define the term. First, a worldview is a person’s philosophy on life. Second, it is a framework that a person brings to decision-making. Third it is the way a person interprets life and the world around them. The question of origin can be answered within the first chapters of the Bible. In Genesis 1:3-19, we read of the creation of the Heavens and Earth. God saw a formless, empty darkness and filled it with His creations. We then read in Genesis 2:7 that God created man from the dust of the Earth to start populating the Earth he had shaped. The second question that of identity, can be explained in Psalm 8:4-8. Mankind was created to rule over the animals, not to be subjugated by them. We are also taught of identity in 1st Timothy chapter 2 (1 Timothy 2:1-15). In this chapter we learn to identify ourselves as individuals and as Christians. Our purpose on Earth is to know God. We are taught this in the book of John (John 17:3). God didn’t create us so we would not look to Him, He created us to follow Him and look to Him for guidance in our everyday lives. Our purpose is also to teach others about Christ and bring non-believers to Him (Matthew 5:14-16). We are to be a light for God and shine our lights for others to see. As Christians the question of morality can be first answered by the teachings of Moses with......

Can You See What I See?

...Can you see what I'm talking about? Heather E Harper BCOM/275 May 7, 2012 Scott Romeo Can you see what I'm talking about? Demonstrative communication is nonverbal and unwritten communication through things like facial expressions, body language and tone of voice. Just like anything else in life, there are a number of positive aspects as well as negative aspects to this kind of communication. Communication as such can either be effective or ineffective and positive or negative for both the sender and the receiver. Successful communication is not only the sending of a message, but also the receiving of that message the way it was intended. The use of unspoken communication such as facial expressions allows the receiver of a message to form an opinion on a number of things. For example, if a speaker is excited, passionate, or happy about what they are speaking on, it will be apparent by the look on their face. If that speaker is tense and pacing back and forth with their hands in their pockets, it would appear that he or she was nervous or anxious. Even the speaker’s attire can be a form of unwritten nonverbal communication. Let’s say the speaker is a pastor or a preacher, and it is Sunday morning and he is preaching his sermon in a T-shirt, cut off jean shorts, and flip flops. Opinions will vary in the congregation. Ultimately the preacher’s attire sends a message to his congregation without one spoken word. It is nearly impossible to avoid using......

Creativity as I See It

...Creativity as I see it By Mohiuddin Abro BS35 2936 (Note – The following account is that of a personal nature. The things I find “creative” may differ from that of the reader) Creativity. It’s a word that has more or less fascinated my whole life. Oxford dictionary defines being “creative” as involving the use of imagination or original ideas in order to create something new. If that is to be believed, then our childhood is the most imaginative phase of our lives. I was born on 14th of August 1988 to a Sindhi father and a mother migrated from Aligarh, India. In a time when preference was given on one’s own ethnic group, my parents were innovators and trend-setters. It was the mixing of two very different and unique worlds, brought together by a bond of marriage. I like to think that this affected me and my outlook on life – because even to this day, I feel I have an identity crisis in progress. I remember hearing the word creative for the first time when I was around 8-10 years old. And I didn’t get it. I didn’t get what It wholly means, what it denotes to. Maybe I was at a tender age to fully grasp the concept, but gradually, I began to associate it with a medium. And that was films. Creativity and films are words that I have always connected together; because it was through movies I understood what creativity can aspire to be. The art of making films, and watching them at a film theatre. It’s the film plots that can guide us out of our lives and provide supreme......
