The two items I picked to experiment was spreading my belongings so as to occupy too much space and standing and talking with other people and not occupying too much space.
In my algebra class, 3 of us sit at a table, with just enough personal space for our textbooks and notebooks. When I arrived to class, the other two people were already at the table, they are a brother and sister. I haven’t spoke too much with them because the class just started 3 weeks ago and with lecture going on, there isn’t much time to talk. After I sat down, I pulled my textbook, notebook and calculator out and placed them on the table. As the lecture started, I appeared to be writing notes in my notebook and reading from the textbook. As I did this, I intentionally moved them out to occupy more of the space from the guy sitting next to me. I noticed as I moved them inch by inch, he would move his items back away inch by inch, giving me more space. Over the next hour, I did this more and more, until I occupied at least half of his space. He occasionally started throwing me dirty looks, but didn’t say much. I could tell he was getting irritated. As I moved my items another couple inches towards him, he finally asked me what my problem was. I said sorry and that I didn’t realize my books were so far in his area. He said that he wondered how I couldn’t of noticed that, he was getting squished. I then explained the experiment to him, and he laughed and said that he was really starting to get pissed off and was wondering why I was doing that.

For fourteen years I have placed my confidence in the citizens of Massachusetts — and they have generously responded by placing their confidence in me. Now, on the Friday after next, I am to assume new and broader responsibilities. But I am not here to bid farewell to Massachusetts.

Power of the Tongue

...excited to learn whatever I could from it. To find the messages God had for me to build my relationship with him. I didn’t even get through the first chapter when the challenge started. My mind began to wander and my attention was definitely not held. The simplicity of the book, I found completely monotonous and repetitive. I had heard this message many times before from my own pastor during service. I knew the power of my words…. Or so I thought. I tried for months to read, becoming more and more frustrated, never getting beyond the first chapter. I became angry and tense at the thought of having to read it. I even contemplated throwing the book away and just walking away from the school aspect of developing my relationship with God, to let my understanding and knowledge come from sermons and reading “better, more exciting” books and articles. I prayed about why I couldn’t do this little thing. After all, I made it through nursing school and furthering of my career by reading and comprehending books far more intent than this skinny 10 chapter book. Talking about my frustrations with another student about my reading comprehension, it came to my understanding that my OWN WORDS were blocking my reading, holding me in bondage. Realizing this, my prayers took on a new more positive direction. I began to speak Gods Word over the situation. John 16:23 “Whatsoever ye ask the Father in my name, he will give it to you.” So simple. I had let evil distract me. No more.......

Assistive Communication Device

...Research proposal on Assistive Communication Device My research proposal is based on my own teaching experience of working with a special needs student “Nakita” who was born with downs syndrome. I have been this little girls TA since she was three years old, now she is in the second grade and is eight years old. This little girl is the apple of my eye, and while I am in school my world revolves around her. I am her momma when she is in school, and she is always making sure I am around her or she can see me even when she is on the playground. Over the past four years I have seen this little girl blossom with her communication skills however, she still has a hard time getting her friends and teachers or anyone else understand her wants and needs. When she first came to our school, she was nonverbal and knew a few words through sign other than that she would make grunts or point to what she wants. We have both learned through each other how to communicate to each other. She has taught me some sign language and I have taught her some in return. I have become her communication device and can communicate for her. The problem I see is that I will not always be with her, and she needs to be able to communicate on her or through the help of an assistive communication device. My research paper will be based on certain assistive communication devices for non-verbal downs syndrome students, just like my own student “Nakita”. Our school is a small public school that houses......

Improving Verbal Communication

...verbal communication skills. I have one person in particular in my life that I have difficulty communication with. It is my older brother, who has a serious addiction to alcohol. When he is drinking he calls me to pick arguments. I guess he must have depleted his list of who to call and be a pain in the neck to in our family that day. I am usually the last one he will call when he is in a drunken condition because he knows I won’t be any fun for him; I do not argue with him like most of our family members will do. Still I do have verbal communications with him, but that is only until he has had enough and gives up; usually he gets frustrated and makes a metamessage statement and hangs up on me. By a metamessage I mean "the message he sends me beyond the words he speaks; also known as “reading between the lines” (Sole, 2011, p. 4.1: How Words Work: Metamessages, Para. 1). He makes statements like: when he wants me to go to the store and purchase more beer for him (which I never will do) and he says “never mind”, “thanks for nothing” or that I am “selfish and uncaring.” (Sole. 2011, p. 4.1: How Words Work; Table 4.1 Identify the Metamessages). He is clearly annoyed that I think it is more important to write my papers for college than to be his enabler. He seems to be very disappointed that I have my homework for a reason for not going to the beer store for him. Frankly, I have more challenging things to pursue in my life, and I will use any opportunity to say “I cannot......

A Message from Mom

...Message for Mom Yesterday I got a short message from my son: "Mom, I love you very much." I cannot say that these words were unusual or unexpected to me. My son will turn 23 soon, and we have quite a close relationship. I know that he really loves me, but now he is at the age when the words of love he says are often not to mom. That simple phrase has caused a flood of feelings in me. On one hand, this message just warmed my soul, but on the other hand, it was a message that caused a series of thoughts and questions for me. Of course, getting this message is an event for me and I about it all the time. Even when we feel the love and respect in the affairs of our loved ones, it is still an expression of the feelings in words, and it becomes an amazing event and should be perceived that way. At this point, I witnessed the sum of my results in the education of my son, and what kind of young man I raised. Now I can imagine for myself what kind of person he will be in the future. His actions warm my heart and soul, and I know that he will make me proud as his mother. Right now, he is going through a difficult moment in his life. He attempts to be and do everything as a young grown man, and he tries to cope with all the difficulties. Perhaps that is why the first thought I had was that it was really bad if he remembered his mother during the night. Indeed, everything is now difficult for him. Adult life arranges its own tests and does not ask if we are ready for it or not.......

Literacy Narrative

...Words Sitting alone on a West Midlands train, I buried my face in my hands wondering what on earth I should do. “I can’t do this,” I told myself. I’d just spent the day calling international schools in Europe trying to sell them an education package for a friend’s business. I think telesales is one of the most soul sucking activities in the entire business world! “I can’t make money for other people for the rest of my life,” I said. “I won’t.” It was the summer of 2005, and it was my seventh day back on British soil after serving an 18-month mission for the LDS church in the US. I graduated with a degree in international business management before my mission, but now the prospect of pushing paper for a career, like all the other business minions, was not appealing. Like the sunny countryside whizzing by, my own train of though was working its way through hills and valleys of possibility. By the time I stepped of that train in my hometown, I had decided to go back to school and leave the country. Speech-language pathology was my ticket out of town. Five months later I had a confirmation of my choice. Without ever asking for it, I received a brochure in the mail from a college in Boston about my chosen program. As I pored over the booklet, one sentence, one word reverberated from the page: “Emerson college desires compassionate students.” Compassion. One word, seven sounds, was reason enough for me to pack up my life, sell everything that didn’t fit in my......

...probably. I do things I have to do and have my own rule to myself. The funny guy in me is what people usually see. They laugh at my jokes and they appreciate it. Some people think I'm scary because I don't look good and probably I look bad on their eyes. Although I don't care about that. I'm not the kind of guy who can be easily handle since I do weird and dumb things with my friends. They think of me as a tall guy obviously. I'm about 6 ft. as of now. Most people think of me as a shallow one because that's what I show to them. A few of who knows me the deepness of my thoughts. Although I don't really show the deep side because it's deep and probably complicated. Some people wonder about my identity such as my nickname because it's kind of catchy and I won't and I'll never tell anyone the meaning of it. I'm a caring person and I know people can see that because most of the times I help them. Sometimes people think I'm a bad guy. My image on other people is a bit jumbled because I chose people and what part of me suits them. But overall, people think of me as a funny and friendly man. 2. What do you really think of yourself? I think of myself as a man of his own words. When I say something, I'll do it. That's my own rule to my own self. I'm a man of freedom. Freedom to express words and thoughts. I don't drag people down with me. If I'm the one to blame, I'll gladly take the execution. I'm a funny guy with a serious and psychopath mind. But my patience and anger......

The Fishbowl

...About seven months ago I enrolled in classes for the fall semester of my senior year. One of the classes I chose to take as a professional elective was Business 448, International Dimensions of Business with Sanjiv Dugal. It was one of those classes that seemed somewhat interesting, but seven months ago I had no idea what would be asked of myself or what we would have to do in class or really anything. In September we all walked into Bus 448 not knowing what to expect. I remember leaving class the first two weeks with the same feeling; I have no idea what this guy is talking about and I really don’t know what he is expecting out of us. Although there was a syllabus, the class was like nothing I ever experienced, it seemed like there weren’t enough guidelines, there were only a few rules and we were on our own. From the first day I had always read Sanjiv’s letter responses and tried to respond to them as often as possible. After about a month I started to get a feel for the class and what he was asking from us. About two weeks later I set up a time to meet with Sanjiv to discuss where I stood at that point in the semester and to just make sure I was up to speed on everything. I walked into that meeting thinking it would be a quick five-minute conversation if that. I ended up figuring out that although I had done most of the work it was not exactly what he was asking for, and some other assignments I didn’t take them as far as I should’ve. So the quick five-minute......

Papa

...evening was a celebration of the life of my boyfriend, Parker. He had died in a swimming accident that summer, trying to save the life of a friend. A deep breath in, a deep breath out, and I began to speak, seeing his mother’s tearstained face in the patches of my vision unclouded by the lights. I concentrated my thoughts and words on the qualities he had in abundance: his energy, his generosity, his good humor, his talent, and his passion for life. I felt a desperate need to express myself to all the people gathered to remember him, to remind them of him. But I left out so much. The words I spoke were light, reminding everyone of his humor, making them laugh quietly through their tears. I didn’t speak of the two days in which I had waited, with bated breath and breaking heart, to know whether he lived or died. A chance meeting with a member of his church had informed me of only the slightest details of the accident. Being half a world away, with his family in the process of moving, I was left scrambling to contact anyone who could tell me what happened. I needed to hear something, anything, to dispel the nameless fears running through my mind. How was I to describe those hours of waiting to that audience? Of sitting in a darkened room with his best friend, alternately sobbing and seeking to comfort? Those words, had I found them, would not have been suitable for my speech, and so they were not spoken. The criteria given to me for my speech by the principal of......

Should We Give Credit to the Writer

...Week #2 When you speak or write, do you own the words that you have created? If I am to think that we don’t own what we speak or write, why is it important than, to always cite or give credit to someone else. Thus, this must be the question…………”Why do we cite or give credit?” Who does the words belong to? Let’s take the biblical argument “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters” (2010, p. 20). Then the argument becomes who actual spoke or wrote these words. Did God? Or man? So the question is, “who should we cite or credit?” This is not an easy answer. We can spend allot of time debating this questions but the complexity of thought theory is that, ideas have varying of depth and complexity. The more complex or tiered an idea is, the less likely it is to be thought by someone else. Taking the original model, but with the thought being 2-tiered, the chance of the idea not being original is 2/100 or 2% instead of the 20% we mentioned above (2012, p.2). In my opinion I don’t own the words that have been created but I own the thought. Yet, one may argue that there is no original statement. It would be my response that I would agree that there are no original words. However I can’t and will agree that there is no original statement that comes from a person. “Key words from a person”, what that means is......

Crib of Words

...January 2016 A Crib of Words “Mommy…is she going to have a wittle baby, just like my sister Ali?” said an awestruck 4 year old Katie vonErden. Before I can even remember, my parents have always sensed my adoration and passion for the miracle of life, babies specifically. No matter the setting, I was always toting my own baby dolls in pretty pink, floral carriages and feeding them generously from miniature baby bottles. Eyes beaming and my mouth never losing its delighted smile, I’d always love “playing mother”. Never missing a beat, from the sunrise to sundown I spent most of my hours pretending to read fantasy stories to “my baby” and create my own baby care/personal schedules. No matter where I happened to be, whether in a busy-bodied grocery store or in the confinement of my princess-themed room, I absolutely loved making up colorful stories about unicorns and rainbows—literally—and adding in my own noises and expressions to “make my baby smile”. Bubbling over with a constant energy imagination, my stories always had happy endings and dramatic plot twists. I wanted to be the caregiver that made one laugh hysterically and dance with anticipation. As I arrived at the ending of my stories, I felt it. I felt the story, its energy and excitement, bringing me closer to “my baby”. My 41 inch height and even tinier physique defied the independent, motherly spirit and passion I had for babies. I wanted to teach, open up to, care for and love all my baby dolls and the......
