My Journal Entry 1

...Entry 1 (24th September 2012) It's exactly 12:01 am now, and seeing that this is my first entry, I should update a little of myself. I'm currently at Taiwan for a short vacation with my high school friends of about 10years. And they are Lee Sue Ee, Soh Pei Ling, and Chong Yee Wun. We arrived here on Saturday, 22nd September 2012, and so far it has been an hectic journey seeing that we are here on our own for the first time and we did not go through any travel agency. Enough of updating, I just finish my STA assessment and e-mailed it to my group mates to submit later in the morning. I just hope that I did good enough despite my heavy schedule and with little initiative. Oh yes, I am now in my room while the girls are sleeping and the view is just amazingly breath-taking. How fortunate i am that I could do my assignment while looking at this sea view. The sound of the rushing waves eases my mind to relaxation and light music as my background to suit my emotion. The only thing that lack, is a partner to share this spectacular moment. Anyway, I should sleep now. Gotta be up early later for another tour around the north-east Taiwan before heading to the capital city Taipei later in the evening. I will update my entry again later whilst exploring every possibility here. Good Night ! Good afternoon, it was quite a day after waking up restlessly. Breakfast here was amazing, I mean, what more can we ask with such nature phenomenal as our spectacular view. After finishing our...

A Journal for My Literature Class

...Shaquisha Barrow September 26, 2012 Journal #10: The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven Intro to Lit 1. I got very confused when I was searching for the original “Lone Ranger and Tonto” because I saw different versions of it and I wasn’t sure which was which. I did however, find the definition of “Tonto”, which means silly or dumb and “Ke-mo sah-bee which means trusty scout. I believe that the narrator was Tonto in society’s eyes. The narrator couldn’t even go into a certain part of town without people calling the police because he looks “suspicious”, or walk in a store to get a few snacks without people being scared of him. I believe that heaven represents America and the “American dream” which, to me, is to have freedom, happiness, and wealth. The narrator along with the other Native Americans on the reservation, symbolizes Tonto, he trusts his girlfriend (The Lone Ranger), to help him better himself and reach the American dream but instead she, along with help from others, knock him down and stop him from reaching his dream. The woman that he loved was supposed to be there to help him and encourage him but instead they always clashed and argued. The narrator said that they never physically fought, but she always knew what to say to hurt him. Based on my experiences, most of the people we attach ourselves to, know how to hurt us the most. I think that society as a whole was a symbol of the Lone Ranger. The narrator just wanted to live his life like a regular......

Film Assignment 2 - Class Dismissed

...Film Assignment 2: Class Dismissed: How TV Frames the Working Class (LABR 1F90) 1. What theoretical assumptions underlie the documentary’s major premise that TV depicts working class people as either clowns or social deviants? For the past five decades television shows have used blue collar acting as a means of entertainment, discipline, education and shaping the view of working class people. The working class people were portrayed as class clowns because of their lack of development and the restrictive boundary they had around their social class. Class clowns have bad taste, lack of intelligence, intransigent politics, poor work ethics and dysfunctional family values. Bad taste usually led to lifestyle of a junk culture such as those seen on sitcoms where the husband came late from work to watch television with a beer in his hand. Some television shows demonstrated that families prefer living with a lower income and buying cheaper brand than expensive ones. Class in reality however, is not the same since it is powerfully structured by social forces. As publicized in the film ‘Class Dismissed,’ shows like Joe Millionaire, The Nanny, Extreme Makeover and Extreme Makeover House Edition all tried to show how lower classes have attempted to fit with upper and middle class. Another show known as ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’ argued that it was their main intention to focus on the body and the house. It was known as one of the rare shows that aired on television......

Journal of Popular Film and Television 30.1 (Spring 2002) 63-68

...Greg M. Smith Journal of Popular Film and Television 30.1 (Spring 2002) 63-68 In the 1960's American art museums faced another of their cyclical crises of relevance, causing them to reevaluate their role in American society. The dominant paradigm in most traditional art museums was the display of Great Works, aesthetic objects existing outside of time and space for the museumgoer's pure contemplation. Since such works were universal in their artistic appeal, they were expected to reach across barriers of time and space to speak to the patron's sensibilities. The insights of great individual artists enriched the consciousnesses of museumgoers who briefly shed their individual subjectivities to encounter the eternal verities of Beauty and Truth. Outside the walls of the art museum, these eternal verities were in much disarray. The feminist and civil rights movements began publicly questioning whose idea of beauty and whose concept of truth was being articulated. The relevance of historical tableaux and delicate still lifes created for wealthy patrons came into question in an era increasingly aware of social inequities and gender and racial politics. How could the museum maintain its position as the repository of classical Beauty while attracting a population which pondered if black were beautiful or if nudes were sexist? Some museums attracted audiences with the promise of the new. Museums such as the Museum of Modern Art offered new......

...Budget Journal In: Business and Management Budget Journal 1. As you reflect back on this budgeting assignment, what are the most personally important facts or concepts you learned? I learned that if you take more units, a full-time student, you will be able to save more. You can have lower student loans and be able to finish much faster. As a student, we need to consider and take full advantage of the grants and scholarships that is eligible and available to us. This helps towards our goal in paying off our student loans. 2. How does what you learned or realized relate to or impact your personal, educational, and career goals? What I learned and realized that education is important. We can’t avoid not having student loans ,but we can try to use as much as grants and scholarship as we can. We also need to keep in mind that we need to learn how to budget ourselves because we don’t want to end up paying high amount of payment every month. We need to save up and use our money wisely for necessities and not material things. When we finish school, we can then apply for jobs that is well in pay and can afford our everyday living. 3. Do you feel prepared to enter student loan repayment and understand how to get started? So far, I’ve been saving up money and putting aside extra income I receive from my paycheck. This also includes any refund I receive from my school and will use it to repay for my student loans. I am aware of how much interest there is to pay for my student...

My Journal

...Social Psychology Professor White Journal #1 So I didn’t know how to start off with this journal thing, so I decided to tell you a story of what happened to my friends and I just the other weekend. It all started off with my intoxicated friend (Jeff) paying 20$ for like four or so tacos from Jack in the Box. He gave the money to our friends (Tim) roommate (John), who in turn gave it, to a girl who went to go buy them. After some time Jeff started to get upset because it taking so long so he asked John where the girl was with the food. He told him he didn’t know anything so Jeff went around talking to people about the situation. Eventually some other drunken guy said “Oh I remember him trying to steal my friend’s wallet the other day.” After that everything got a little chaotic! I don’t understand why, well I guess it’s from this weird global obsession of guys to have the biggest and best ego. So that I guess is one psychological theory that I don’t understand, ego… on a random note I think I figured out the reality of the universe, but that’s a whole other journal. So back to the story, after Jeff heard that, he went into this crazy rant about how John had planned this big elaborate scheme to get the girl to take his money and split it up behind his back. Even though that is an extremely illogical answer to his problem (the lost 20$) he insisted on it. What I don’t understand in even when John said I will pay you the 20$ out of my own money to get the situation......

Film Journal

...American Cinema/Riggin Film Journal #1 The Terminator It's early 21st century, and a nuclear holocaust has killed off most people. Those that remain are subjugated to a war against sophisticated machines. This sets the stage for the classical narrative that will unfold in James Cameron’s The Terminator. This film provides several examples of the classical narrative style, mise-en-scene, exquisite editing that matches on graphics and action as well as use of camera angles to feature the tale. The classical narrative of The Terminator focuses on the story of Sarah Connor set against the backdrop of the larger conflict. The plot is exquisite in its simplicity as the machines determine to win the war before it even starts. They send the terminator (Schwarzeneggar) back through to kill Sarah Connor (Hamilton) and thereby prevent the birth of John Conner, the future resistance leader. The human resistance sends back a human, Kyle Reese (Biehn), to protect Sarah. Unfortunately for both the Terminator and Kyle, Sarah's residence is not known. So both proceed to phone booths, where they learn that there are three Sarah Connor’s in the phone book. Kyle has the advantage here since he has a photo of her, while the Terminator must resort to assassinating each Sarah Connor in order to achieve his mission. The alternating cross-scenes between the actions of Kyle and The Terminator are played in direct contrast to each other. The Terminator arrives calm, poised and......

My Journal Week 2

... My Journal HIS/ 120 09/28/2015 My Journal HIS/ 120 09/28/2015 Dear Diary, Today is November 4, 1920. My mother and father, my brother, Jonathan, my sister, Rosy and I are forced to leave our country in Eastern Europe; migrating to the United States of America. My mother told us about her close friends that she had known since she was a child, moved there. Her best friend Charlotte wrote letters to her every week. Explaining that America has a lot of job opportunities, education, and that there’s freedom there to live. Verses staying in our home country where anti-Semites would start riots. 1. So we packed all our belongings and took whatever we could carry. After purchasing our tickets to sail away, we entered the biggest ship I’ve ever seen. I had many emotions and thoughts rushing through my mind. Feeling nervous about moving to a place I’ve never been… Sad that there’s a war coming to erupt… Worried for the people that we’re leaving behind… Exhausted from stress and not getting enough sleep... What’s really going to happen when we get to America? I hate the feeling of not knowing what’s going to come because I feel then I have to prepare myself for the worse. On the ship there were more than 2,000 Jews. Everybody was very close together and compacted inside. We had to make our own beds and we had to keep each other warm. It took us days, weeks for our arrival. I couldn’t keep track. Some people eventually gotten seasick because of the rocking back and forth. On the......

Examples of Class & Gender in Music and Film

...Drew Daniels SOC 3381 25 October 2015 Class and Gender in Music and Film On the outside, America appears to be the land of opportunity, the land of freedom, and the land of equality. On the inside, this is anything but the truth. There are age-old systems of oppression built to keep long outdated beliefs in place today, and for many groups of people, it is inescapable. These systems cause social harm to lower class communities, to women, to non-binary peoples, and the most to individuals who fall into more than one of those classifications. Many writers and artists have sought to bring these issues of inequality into the public eye, having the most success telling their stories or the stories of others through music and film. Class oppression is very tricky subject to bring to light and analyze. While the American economic system is built in a way that allows everyone equal opportunities, there are limits that make it sometimes near impossible for lower and working class individuals to build better lives for themselves, limits that are not obvious to someone living outside of the poverty line. Jason DeParle writes about Kathryn Edin, a social worker who studies mothers in poverty and the struggles they go through providing for their children on but a monthly welfare check. While these mothers have the opportunity to get a job to support their families, they are often better off receiving government benefits; they can stay home and care for the children and take......

My Film Experience

...Maureen Jacob ID # 14231227 Film Studies 1800: Intro to Film Studies Question 1- Ever Since I was young I have enjoyed watching movies. I am the youngest of four kids, and that definitely affected my film watching experience as a kid; I always had to watch the movies my siblings wanted to watch, because of course the youngest, or at least me, did not have much say in those types of things. Although, at that point in my life I didn’t like being able to choose movies, now I realize it opened my eyes to a lot of different types of movies, even older films, since my oldest sibling is 10 years older than me. I have always been a huge fan of Disney and Pixar movies and still watch them today, when I’m bored or need some cheering up. I think that Toy Story is my favorite. I like the idea of channeling your inner kid and just being able to have some fun through your film watching experience. I also find myself looking in the Romantic Comedy section most often on Netflix. I like the balance of love and laughs. When I was young, my sisters introduced me to Sleepless in Seattle, and it is probably one of those movies I can watch time and time again. I like drama as well, I can honestly say that The Titanic is in my top five favorite movies, but that can also do with the fact that I love Leonardo Dicaprio. As you can see I like a very wide range of movies. I am not really to big of a sci-fi person and have never had interest in watching Star Wars,......

My First Class

...MY FIRST CLASS After being a part of M.A.D. for over a month now, today I finally got a chance to teach the kids i.e. Today was my first class as a teacher with M.A.D. . . . It was so fulfilling and was a great experience. So it all started today at 8:00 AM when I woke up very excited and happy knowing the fact that from this day onwards I actually start Making a Difference. So I reached my Centre i.e. Aashiyana(Panchkula) at 10:30AM with all the books, Markers etc. The class was not for another half hour. But our team decided to go in and check in on the arrangements made by the authorities for the classes. Everything was perfect, the kids reached the classes on time and they were also super excited to learn which made this all more fun. And so our classes began at 11:00AM . After the Ice-Breaking session, it was pretty clear that my kids loved playing games, so I decided to begin my class with a simple “Sit-Stand” game. The kids loved it and after adding a few twists to the game we had a winner. The class applauded the winner with BIG smiles on their faces & hence, I began with the teaching session. The kids were so eager to learn and this curiosity for learning was clearly visible on their faces. After a brief introduction to the first exercise in the book, I was surprised to see the response of the class. Everybody knew what to answer and almost everyone wanted to speak out the answers. This was such a good feeling. The kids were themselves trying to speak......

My Fear of Public Speaking

...thought of having to step in front of my peers and give a speech. Speaking in front of a crowd is my fear. I can just imagine it standing there, jabbering. Thinking about it makes me sweat and afraid. When my teacher announced that we have to present our essays, I was consumed with worry and dread ever since that day. I feel a nervous excitement at the thought; I won’t have to deal with it after today. Seating at my desk, I fantasize about elaborate ways of escaping. Build a time machine and travel past the day of January 28th, second period or hypnotize Mrs. Smith my English teacher to forget me. Some of my anxiety is calmed as I fantasize, until I awake. Flung back into cold hard reality. I see David my class mate heading back to his seat. Oh how I envy him, I want to be him. Born and raised with his native tongue of English he has no problem speaking fluently, even in front of the class. Here I am the foreigner sitting in my first ever English class ready to explode. Mrs. Smith congratulates him on his paper. She then starts to look around. At this moment, I try to make myself look as small as mouse, avoid eye contact at all cost and imagine myself invisible. I’m busted. “Key RO Bell” Mrs. Stanly murders my beautiful name and I hate her for it. Not that I ever cared if people mispronounced my name but now it’s different. My heart is beating fast, as I nod in response. I can hear it loud in my ear. I looked to see if anyone else heard it. My neighbor, nope he looked to......

My Journal

...Journal I don’t know but I got many things in my mind right now. I just have to break it down by writing you this little journal. First of all, I am really stressing out over here because I need money to proceed. I need money since I don’t want to depend on my brother or anybody else for my actions anymore. I want to work for my money so I could spend it on how I want to. My main goal is to save up for a car or enough for emergency use when I am in college. Speaking of college, the colleges that I want to attend to are: UCI, UCR, CSUFULL, CSULB, and more that I cant think of right now. My major in college will be Information technician, or a engineer. I want to become a information technician since im alright with computers and if I study more about it I could become good at what I do. I also want to become a engineer since im getting into liking cars on how it works, fixing it up, making a car faster, and etc. The colleges that I picked were mostly up at the La region. The reason I picked that is because im going to be really close to my cousin Anthony and Heather. Im taking a gamble, on me being with Heather in College. Im hopeing that Heather and I will be together soon. Im taking this chance because I feel like we are going to become more then friends, if I keep playing my cards right. Hopefully that day will come true…But if it doesn’t then everybody has a back up plan right? Mine is to just relax with my cousin in college, hoping I could move on from a hope not...
