...As indicated by Brown, D., Pryzwanski, W. B., & Schulte, A. C. (2006), when there are conflicting views in collaboration, the goals and procedures are apt to create misunderstandings: which can lead to resentment, in addition to confusing expectations and responsibilities. As explained by Ray (1978), “when change is presented, discussed, and planned, people will choose to change. In so doing, recognize the benefits of change.” Thus, seek a method for the change in a way people will yield to change efforts. It is my opinion a change that this course has helped me to recognize is in my ability to self advocate for my needs in creating the change in my employment. For example, I have struggled with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) that has gone undiagnosed until recently. ADD can certainly affect one's work life. In such a way as trouble remembering information, managing time, organizing and prioritizing, screening out distractions, and just getting started on tasks. This has caused extreme frustration in me and those I work with. My experience is when energy has been expended in an effort to control what's outside of us, this tends to drain us of vital energy and frustrates us even more. However, what seems like minor errors have accumulated to a point of this writer has been held to disciplinary actions at work as “unprofessional.” I would have to say, upon waking each day and throughout most my waking hours, I have varying degrees of anxiety. Upon waking, it is extreme...

Texting Essay - Spoken Language Study

...technique used in the text is including slang or words written as they are said. Some examples of this are ‘wazaap?’ (l.1); ‘Who dis?’ (l.2); ‘nah’ (l.9); ‘Waana’ (l.14); ‘Wat abat’ (l.16). The effect of these features is to make the text read like a very informal, spoken conversation between two people who know each other very well. This makes the person reading the text, feel that they can express their thoughts and feelings in a natural, open way, and creates an intimate link between them. The text also uses non-verbal language such as: ‘whoa whoa whoa’ (l.11); tch .hh – yeh - u::h u::h (l.15); ‘Mmhm’ (l.18). The effect of these techniques is to add in spoken sounds that are never written into formal texts. These are sounds that people make when they are speaking directly to one another and are not part of language, they are known as ‘metacommunication’. They usually tell the reader about how the texter feels, for example ‘whoa whoa whoa’ suggests that the texter is excited about something, and ‘Mmhm’ is a non-verbal way of saying ‘yes’. In a similar way to the use of slang, these features bring the texter and the reader closer together, because in speech they are an informal way of communicating with people who we know very well. We don’t...

Hello

...Hey hi hello First use Hello, with that spelling, was used in publications as early as 1833. These include an 1833 American book called The Sketches and Eccentricities of Col. David Crockett, of West Tennessee,[2] which was reprinted that same year in The London Literary Gazette.[3] The word was extensively used in literature by the 1860s.[4] Etymology According to the Oxford English Dictionary, hello is an alteration of hallo, hollo,[5] which came from Old High German "halâ, holâ, emphatic imperative of halôn, holôn to fetch, used especially in hailing a ferryman."[6] It also connects the development of hello to the influence of an earlier form, holla, whose origin is in the French holà (roughly, 'whoa there!', from French là 'there').[7] As in addition to hello, halloo,[8] hallo, hollo, hullo and (rarely) hillo also exist as variants or related words, the word can be spelt using any of all five vowels.[citation needed] Telephone The use of hello as a telephone greeting has been credited to Thomas Edison; according to one source, he expressed his surprise with a misheard Hullo.[9] Alexander Graham Bell initially used Ahoy (as used on ships) as a telephone greeting.[10][11] However, in 1877, Edison wrote to T.B.A. David, the president of the Central District and Printing Telegraph Company of Pittsburgh: Friend David, I do not think we shall need a call bell as Hello! can be heard 10 to 20 feet away.

Success

...that your definition of success is unreachable and a fantasy to others. So, what really is the definition of success? For me, true success requires appreciation and contentment – both of which are traits that are genuinely difficult to attain. People nowadays are working so hard in order to get more than what they have and more than what other people have. They treat life as a competition and I think that, if that would be the mindset of everyone, then we won’t really achieve success, just people pushing past each other and treating everyone as a rival. If everyone would just slow down, stop running, appreciate what they have and be contented with it, then even the slightest achievement would mean great success. Now, you might say “Whoa! being successful is too much work.” Yes, being successful is not easy, it does not happen overnight and hardly anyone in this world is truly, and genuinely successful but, success is a decent goal to strive for. Just remember, Success does not come from what others believe about you. Success comes from what you believe about...

When we left we went to rent a hotel room. Then all of a sudden, a humungous mineral fell from the sky. “Whoa” said my little brother Aaron. When my parents examined it, they took it back to the hotel. While we examined it, the hotel owner came in. “is everything all right?” asked the owner. “Look at this mineral we found.” Said my dad. The hotel owner had no idea what kind it was. “It is far too beautiful to be fake. “Said the owner. “It’s also too rough.” ‘Should we take it to someone who knows about minerals? “Asked my dad. “Sure” said the hotel owner. When we took it to a guy, he said it was real lavender mineral. He also said to buy a case to put it in. We had to leave my brother Tony said “can we stay one more day?” my mom said no. When we got home, we went to bed. The next day we talked about our trip. When we finished talking about our trip, we had a wonderful lunch. Everyone wanted to go back to Rome.
