More than 40 million Americans move every year. Whether it’s down the street or across the world, people’s homes change every day. Personally, I’ve moved back and forth from house to apartment six times over the last four years. No matter what the outside looks like or how long you’ve lived there, home is a place where you feel comfortable, where you create the best memories, and where you’re surround by your loved ones and things. After a long day, most find themselves saying, “Can I go home now?” Home means a cozy bed with freshly washed sheets that hold your body and relax your mind as you drift into a state of peace. It’s a warm cup of coffee in the morning or a calming bubble bath late at night. When I’m home I like to wear my most comfortable pajamas, tie up my hair, and take off all my makeup. I can do as I please without having to be cautious of my surroundings or worry about who might be watching me. Years ago when I lived with my dad, I’d come home from school and take a nap, only to wake up to the smell of my step mom’s dinner. As I walked into the kitchen with my eyes still half closed, all 3 of my little brothers teased me about my bed head and wrinkled shirt, but that was what I was comfortable with and that’s the way I liked it. It wouldn’t have been home any other way. Now, as I’m about to head off to college, my idea of home has changed drastically. I live in a one bedroom apartment with my mom, but that’s okay too. I’ve learned that houses are bought and sold but a home stays with you wherever you go. Some of my best memories are in the house I grew up in. Although I didn’t spend my entire childhood there, it was the house with the too small of a bathroom that my mom drug me into every night to wash my hair. It was the house with the long hallway that I ran across to get to my sister’s room where we took turns rubbing each other’s backs before we fell asleep. Home is me running across the soccer field at eight years old scoring goals and creating lifelong friends. It’s shoving orange slices into my mouth and slurping down juice boxes after winning a tournament. Some of my best memories were made in an apartment I called “home” for less than six months, memories of me sitting on the edge of my mom’s bed talking for so long she had to literally kick me out because she…
Chapter 8: Memory
Encoding is the active process of converting a stimulus into a form useable by memory system.
Storage is processing and maintaining the information
Retrieval is the active process in locating and using stored information.
Sensory memory: Physical stimuli, long enough to convert to short term memory (2-3 seconds). Ex. Sound echo
Short term memory: Immediate memory for the stimuli perceived. It is long enough until necessary. Ex. Finding the theatre number…

therefore, misperception about time management is frequently happen. As same as a student who plans to sleep only 4 hours and listen to a tape of a lecture while taking another class (cited in Richmond, 2009, p.32).

have found out that when you are sleeping, and enter REM sleep (when your large voluntary muscles are paralyzed and your brain activity is very high) a portion of your brain stem is activated, a few areas in the middle of your brain start working for example: the hippocampus that is associated with the formation of memories, the temporal lobe responsible for the visual imagery and lastly the amygdala that is in charge of the emotional memories. When all the parts mentioned before activate, the frontal…
didn’t feel as if I had much control. Though, throughout this course, I have grown to realize that i can take control and change things I didn’t feel I could in the past. I just needed a decent amount of effort in it to gain what I desire. I worked as best I could and that got me promoted. I fought through stress from school and kept pressing on to make sure I could keep my grades up. My self esteem went up as well when I realized that I was actually in control. I had a new respect for myself that I…
Sleep is the activity that occupies the most of our spare time more than anything. Next to food, water, and shelter, sleep is one of the most important necessities for human survival. In my culture there’s a very old saying:”Sleep is the best medicine”, which pretty much sais it all. Even though humans need sleep to function properly and in the extreme cases live, most people choose to ignore their need for sleep. Statistics show that 90 percent of teenagers tend to get three hours less sleep a night…
