...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...
