In the article Digital Devices Deprive Brain of Needed Downtime Matt Richtel makes a clear point of what technology is doing with our minds. The author uses a lot of facts and interview to show that technology isn’t always the best things for our brain. The author uses specific interviews with scientists, researchers, & professors to share facts and research with us the readers about devices and our brain. In my opinion I somewhat agree with the author is saying in this article. For the part that I agree on is yes the generation now is very tech savvy and I can see how that keeps us from learning new things and keeping up our memory. Every kid now a day gets a cellphone at the age of 12 or earlier. Technology keeps advancing and the use for hard cover books, cd players, & board games are becoming less useful. I do see how we being on our phones and computers can keep us from learning new things and giving our brain a rest for a while. Staring at a screen for a long time can keep you from missing the important things in life or even just learning something new each day. But I do think that technology is also a very positive thing. Just think where we would be without computers, phones, or other things like that. Technology has helped us so much from the medical field, entertainment, science, teaching, and just plain having fun. There are so many new advances being made and some so great that are still to come. In plenty of ways we should be thankful for some devices…
should I even care?
The emerging adult challenges main idea is that in our twenties we start to stray away from the normal things that we grew up with. With seeing new things, doing new things, meeting new people we will often think that our lives are in constant disarray. I agree with this to a certain extent, I completely agree that individuals go through all of these things; yet I believe it’s not limited t only twenty-some years old. This quarter life crisis can come earlier maybe sometimes even…
going to be done. When you know these things you can set yourself a realistic target to achieve. Another way of setting high standards of work would be to try and push yourself that little bit more to do a more difficult task than you are used to. If it means asking for help then it’s ok because you will know for the next time. The goals set should be goals that get you motivated to work harder and achieve more.
You should always be willing to take on new challenges when they arise. It’s these…

Existentialism; The Self Heaven or Hell We Create
“The metaphor that Victor Frankl used is the existential vacuum. Then further
stating that meaningless is a hole in our lives. We allow things to rush in and fill our
vacuum and a primary cause of this need to fill the voids is boredom.” What I feel is the
meaning of existentialism is our desires to fill ourselves with our own habits, beliefs, and
emotions; thus, creating our own…
Carried“The Things They Carried”
– The American Civil War, 1861-1865
A soldier fighting in the Civil War had mixed feelings of compelling patriotism, notably with the Confederates but undeniably just as present in the Union, and strong disgust. Battles often consisted of fathers, uncles, sons and brothers all fighting the American states bordering their own.
Specific to the Civil War:

Psychology, according to textbooks, is the scientific study of mental functions and behaviors. This is, to me, as simple as it goes when it comes to defining the term psychology. Although, one can also say, that psychology is an application of what you know and can do in order to get what you want. It's almost, one can say, a manipulation of others and of one's surroundings in order to make one's way into the world. I think that study of psychology is an essential way of getting to know the…
Personal Ethical Statement
The Ethical Lens Inventory was thought to be a waste of time and a pointless homework assignment. Now after completing, my view on this assignment has juristically changed due to the fact I was able to learn new things about myself, and have a better understanding on how to overcome obstacles.
My preferred ethical lens is Collaboration. Collaboration is essential throughout life whether you are in school, sports, or work a typical job. In any situation, you…
A big theme in the book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is the idea of psychology as a means to control the masses and by default society. Psychology is a very broad subject that covers many opinions and ideas. We’re going to cover five psychologists who come from either the psychoanalytic or behaviorist section of psychology. These theories and beliefs they have convey the messages and ideas of control, sleep teaching, and conditioning. These ideas and opinions helped shape several bits and pieces…
