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 loans and I know that I can begin repaying after 6 months I graduate, which is fair enough for me to find a job and get paid enough to pay for my student loan.
4. What money-related questions do you still have? How will you get the answers you need? So far, I don’t have money-related questions but I do know that I can reach and contact my financial advisor for any financial matters regarding my…...

...Journal Entry August 13, 2012 Antonia Honea ECE 101 Instructor: Carrie Phillips August 13, 2012 Journal Entry August 13, 2012 After reflection on the information in section 2.4 of the assigned text I am left with only one conclusion regarding the methods of observation and documentation that I would use to track early childhood development. This choice has been strongly influenced by the Pediatric Therapists that I have been involved with when dealing with the special needs of my youngest child and also my own experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Observation and Assessment; by observing a child in a neutral or if you will there natural environments and simply documenting there active daily living skills or what is more commonly referred to in the Health Care Profession A.D.L.’s you can gain understanding of where there strengths and weaknesses are. When you observe a child within their peer group you can quickly gain an understanding if there developmental skills are lesser than or equal to others of their peer group. Take for example my son he is 41 months old and appears at first glance to be appropriately physically developed with no disabilities. Placing him within his peer group and simply observing his behavior and interactions with his peers will immediately entice you to observe him in more detail. When walking away you will notice that his knees turn inward and he appear to be dragging his right leg and walking on the inner portion of his......

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......

...Journal Entry #1 Interpersonal communication involves eye contact. For me there is nothing worse then looking down or away when you’re having a discussion with someone and especially if you’re having a serious conversation. When I was younger I had a problem with looking people in their eyes when I was being talked to but realized how bad it was when it was being done to me in a more serious matter. Another thing that could effect a conversation is a clear speaking voice. This is not only to not interpret the message clearly but to make sure things don’t have to be repeated over and over again due to the person not hearing you and running the chance of not understanding you as well. 3-5 goals I have set for myself this semester are: 1. Complete all my classes-what I mean by this is that I’m scheduled to graduate in June 2010 but up until last year I have never dropped a course which I signed up for but I have dropped one last semester and two this semester, but have picked up several to replace them. 2. Become a better parent of my six year old daughter. Everyone tells me I’m a really good parent but for me I always thing I could be doing better. I have found a free parenting class to attend and out of the tow classes I have attended I’ve learned a lot so far. 3. Don’t procrastinate. I’ve haven’t been a procrastinator but recently the last 6 months its started to grow on me. I’m unemployed at the moment and definitely should have enough time throughout the day...

...International Journal of Event Management Research Volume 6, Number 1, 2011 VOLUNTEER SATISFACTION AND INTENT TO REMAIN: AN ANALYSIS OF CONTRIBUTING FACTORS AMONG PROFESSIONAL GOLF EVENT VOLUNTEERS Gina Pauline Syracuse University ABSTRACT Sport events are increasingly reliant on episodic volunteers for the successful delivery of an event. As there continues to exist a surge in the organization of sporting events coupled with the demand for volunteers, event organizers must concern themselves with utilizing the appropriate recruitment and retention strategies. In an effort to do this, one must understand the points of satisfaction for volunteers as well as factors influencing their future intentions to volunteer. While there exists a plethora of research to understand the motivation of volunteers, exploring the antecedents of volunteer satisfaction as well as intent to remain has been limited. This study investigates the factors influencing volunteer satisfaction as well as intentions to remain as a volunteer for future sporting events from an elite men’s golf event on the Professional Golf Association (PGA) circuit. Results indicated that overall volunteers were satisfied with their experience and willing to return yet were concerned with the level of communication between the organization and volunteers. The present study also found that longevity of service influenced volunteer satisfaction. A MANOVA revealed significant differences between first......

...Journals Student’s Name Institution Journal 1: Part 1 Work in my opinion refers to the legitimate means by which man makes a living. Every individual in life has demands that need fulfillment. Individuals have responsibilities that they have to handle. Work enables individuals to earn a living that in turn enables them to meet these responsibilities. It implies that for any normal human being to live comfortably, one must work. Besides earning a living, work enables to utilize our time well. The world today could be full of vices if everybody had nothing to do. They deem that the fiend employs of redundant minds explains this situation clearly. Individuals ought to embrace the work and take it positively rather than viewing it as a punishment. Work should be as part of us, and a means through which human beings maintain their dignity and live respectable lives (Connors and Paul, 2009). The culture of rewarding hard workers cultivated in me the culture of hard work and a positive view towards life. From my tender age, I learned that the work was the way of life and the only way through which individuals could better their lives. On academic grounds, I must state that the teachings by our teachers towards work had a lot of impact on me. They taught work as a virtue and changed my perception towards work. Family provided me with my first interaction with the work. My parents could divide the work and go ahead to reward those who did good work. It instilled in me the...

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......

...Weekly Journal Date: 12/15/14 Day: Monday Time: 3:40 pm I didn’t get anything done on the project this weekend. I hope the other team members fared better than I did. I did look over the project management reference guide. I better understanding of what’s expected for the capstone. The reason I didn’t get much done was because I was getting stuff ready for Christmas. Every time I thought I was finished, I’d get another call saying I need more help. I thought I’d only be busy on Thursday, but that didn’t work out. I got a call on Friday and Saturday as well. I should’ve got started yesterday but that wasn’t happening either, football Sunday. So I guess I’ll have to make it up this weekend. This project is going to be difficult. It entails a lot of work. We have to come up with a project name, which we haven’t done yet. We have to have a risk management plan, a change management plan, a quality management plan, and a project charter. All of which is going to take careful planning and a lot of research. Hopefully we will be able to come to the same conclusions on how this should be laid out, financed and implemented. I think we have a pretty good group of people, Clinton, Stephanie, I, and Said I think. I’m confident that Mr. Swope will give us all the help we’ll need. Also I’m so glad this is the last quarter, the end is near. I can’t wait to graduate. Date: 12/22/2014 Day: Monday Time: 10:45 pm I’m feeling better about this project, now that we got some......

...xxxxxxxxxxx class 09/03/2015 Journal #1 He drew a circle that shut me out- Heretic , rebel, a thing to flout. But love and I had the wit to win: We drew a circle and took him in By Edwin Markham Journal #1 Edwin Markham in his poem tells a story of a person who keeps himself closed. The circle in the first line symbolizes a boundary that he creates to shut everybody out and stays to himself not allowing anyone to understand him. At the end of the poem we see that love wins. People who he left out of his circle came along and showed him that they have concerns for him. Thanks to their love and being clever convinced him to open. They created a different circle and took him in; they made him trust them, and believe that he doesn’t have to be alone. I have been there; I can definitely relate myself with the character in the poem. When I lost my parents at age 20, I kept everyone away and did not let them speak to me. Even though, I did not want to talk to anyone they still kept calling and visiting me. After several years I figured that they were my real friends. They did not want to live me alone, they wanted to help me, but it took me a long time to realize that. The poem is related to our lecture materials about women in the workforce. For me the poem is a message for women that they have to fight for their rights by being clever. The should not follow the stereotypes that they believe in but speak up and be open to change. The more women decide...

... 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......

Reaction Journal for “Navigation My Eerie Landscape Alone”.

...“Navigation My Eerie Landscape Alone” is the title of a brief article by Jim Bobryk which is about behavior people from outside who are so afraid of doing the wrong things that they prefer to do nothing at all. The Author tells us that a few years ago all his life was completely changed. He had battled glaucoma for 20 years, but one day after lunch he recognized that his eyes had hemorrhaged. Jim Bobryk describes how different vision in his eyes helped him as "a navigator in this eerie landscape". Except his feelings, the Author writes about reaction of people of different ages from the street when they seen the human as wielding his stick. Also, the article is about how the Author builds relationship with his friends in new situations. The article "Navigation My Eerie Landscape Alone" involves an important topic because strangers do not really know how to keep balance of not to offend blind people. From my experience, I had the same questions: “Will my friendliness be misconstrued by the disabled as pity? Will an offer of help sound patronizing?” If I do not know the human personal, I will never know his reaction and I will prefer to “do nothing rather than take the risk of offending the blind.” Of course, if I will see that such people need help or if they are in a dangerous situation, I will not wait one second to help them. The problem is some of these people do not want to feel that they are different and they often become upset very quickly. Strangers often try......

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...
