Personal responsibility is the essence of human character. But it is to me a demonstration of one’s own ability to hold themselves accountable for upholding their values and morals ensuring their needs are met, and maintaining a viable lifestyle. Taking responsibility for your actions rather they are good or bad, being able to acknowledge your accomplishments as well as your shortcomings. Dealing with the consequences that may arise rather than run from them. We all choose the road we will travel as long as we take responsibility for the outcome that may arise.
Personal responsibility can greatly impact your college success it is up to you to want to do your best. You have to set your goals that you want to accomplish and see them through. You are the only person who can hold yourself back. Being in college can be a very trying time, it is totally different from being in a high school. During high school years the level of concentration and executing is mediocre because it’s more of practicing your skills, doing homework, and your teacher constantly reminding you what is due. But in college it is on a higher level, you can’t miss anything because if you do you’ve already missed a lot. You have your deadline to get assignments done and you must be able to comprehend what is being taught, there is no holding the students hand to help them get by in class. This can deter students but it is very important to stay focused and motivated to be successful in college. You choose rather you want college to be a positive or negative experience; it’s you who knows that you can do anything if you put your mind to it.
My preliminary plan to practice personal responsibility will be to, stay focused on my work and what my professor is teaching at all times. I will make sure I always ask questions when there is a topic that I don’t understand. I will turn my assignments…...

Essay on ”Race, Class, Violence and Denial: Mass Murder and the Pathologies of Privilege” by Tim Wise

...Essay on ”Race, Class, Violence and Denial: Mass Murder and the Pathologies of Privilege” by Tim Wise Often when racial inequality and discrimination is being discussed, we get to think of terms such as “white privilege” and American history with the Civil Rights Act in 1964. But we think of it, mainly as history. And that, according to Tim Wise, an anti-racism activist and American writer, is the biggest self-deception of the modern American world. Throughout an article posted on his own webpage, concerning school shootings, Tim Wise discusses the general American attitude towards this relatively new phenomenon in American society. With the use of especially pathos Wise argues that the most concerning thing about these events is how society is handling them afterwards. The problem is, according to Wise, that white people tell themselves ‘white lies’, and therefore never think that such actions could be taking place in their communities. He claims that there’s a reason why this happens in the outwardly ordinary societies. It’s because the people, trying to maintain at certain surface of innocence, refuse to see the signs of trouble, even when it’s going on before their very eyes. He wants us to take responsibility and stop excluding some parts of society from the “danger-zone” just because they look bucolic and normal on the outside and almost in the form of a provocative scolding he explains what damages these ‘white lies’ can do - not only to people of color, but to......

...York introduced the legislation. The $65 billion Department of Housing and Urban Development has been plagued by mismanagement and scandal in recent decades. Numerous HUD secretaries have used their power to enrich themselves or to confer special benefits on people with political and financial connections. This essay looks at HUD mismanagement during the tenures of four HUD secretaries under three recent presidents: A root cause of HUD scandals is that the department has a large number of costly subsidy programs, and each involves a tangled web of stakeholders. Many HUD programs divide responsibilities between federal, state, and local policymakers, and they involve private interests such as developers and financial companies. The multiplicity of interests and the complexity of the programs create opportunities for people in the public and private sectors to take personal advantage of programs.  The recent meltdown in the U.S. housing and financial markets makes it crucially important to understand the distortions created by HUD's programs and the political drivers of its decision-making. HUD policies played an important role in the meltdown, and this essay sheds light on why some of HUD's bad policies were put in place. Federal housing policies illustrate some broader realities of federal intervention. When making decisions, policymakers usually have political and self-interested ends in mind, not the broad general interest of the public. Also, lofty......

Asl Class Essay

...10/21/13 Deaf Community Event Paper For class we were required to attend a Deaf Community event. I attended the Deaf event at Arden Mall, Ice Cream Social. Just thinking about going to a Deaf event made me nervous, even though I’ve given many speeches and lectures at school. When I got there I was really debating on going in and actually participating, I had a fear of the unknown lurking in the back of my head. I didn’t know if I would be able to properly communicate with the participants or if I could even understand them. I asked myself what’s the worst that can happen? Obviously better trying it than getting a 0 on my paper. I walked in and asked where the Deaf Community event was held and headed over. It was a nice size gathering, people were enjoying themselves and there wasn’t any stress in the air. I thought it would be like a continuous signing environment where everyone signed rapidly but it was relaxed and there were people there who were interpreters. I was looking around and noticed a middle age women standing there and observing, just like me. I went ahead and introduced myself and we began to sign. Her name was Jennifer, she could speak but had been signing for 3years. I told her how I was taking American Sign Language at ARC. She also asked me about what I do and what I why I decided to take ASL instead of the many other choices of languages that were presented. I told her that I am a nurse and now teach at a nursing program in the Arden area. I decided......

Persepolis Social Class Essay

...everyone should have a car in their house. She even thinks that this should be a rule. As shown she believes that everyone should have the same economic status. Next, Marjane was curious about the reason why her maid eats separately with her family. People become maids due to their inadequate economic situation. Maids not eating with the family show that people are treated unfairly due to their economic status. She thought that this was unfair. “Rule number seven: all maids should eat at the table with the others” (7). She believes that maids should eat together with the family. People should not be treated differently whether or not they own wealth or not. To summarize, people are treated unfairly through many separations which causes class disparity through the Iranian Revolution and Marjane Satrapi does an excellent job at illustrating the inequities that are present at the Iranian society during the revolution. A society where women have more restriction compared to men, where the amount of education decides the death of people, where people who believe differently in politics cannot manage a life, where are not equal due to their economic status; is this considered a fair society? These gaps between the social classes, these discriminations amongst the social classes should be improved and further more demolished at the Iranian society. Work Cited Satrapi, Marjane. Persepolis.

...Eric Rubenstein Due: 5/8/2015 Revised In-Class Essay Diminishing many hundreds of years of state-society interactions into an over-simplification, the expansion of states has been both a positive development and a negative one. Yes, in some cases, strong states have led to mass genocide, as they did at the hands of Nazi Germany or Stalin’s Russia – this being James Scott’s view of strong states. But at the same time, state expansion has also helped the world reach unprecedented levels of order and peace. For Thomas Hobbes, the ability to impose order proves the most vital responsibility of the state. And without strong states, he wrote, life is chaos - a “war of all against all,” where continual lack of security renders life “poor, nasty, brutish and short.” The provision of physical security is undoubtedly a fundamental requirement of a successful state; in this sense, Hobbes’ understanding of a successful state is accurate. But economic health comprises another requirement. States must provide economically inclusive institutions for their citizens, which in turn require well-established notions of property rights and courts of law. For a state to achieve successful development, it must satisfy these two criteria. But success does not come overnight; it is a process, and geography often poses significant, though surmountable challenges to successful development. In the end, though, it is in large part the nature of a state that dictates its development trajectory –......

...level school by mistake (Rose 141).”The educational system is partially to blame, according to Mike Rose. Many learners will pass through high school having undergone negative elements such as fear, frustration and boredom. Mike Rose did not escape the sour side of the educational system. Rose hadn’t stayed in school for more than two months before getting a blow on his face and having his glasses broken by the English teacher who he referred to as being troubled. This was one way fear was instilled in the students' mind. During the Spanish class with the new tutor, Mr. Montez, he was not able to settle the dispute between Billy and Dweetz which ended up into a fight in the classroom. The physical exercise teacher also had a negative impact in his life. He would make students touch their ankles and spunk them to make men out of them. Therefore, this paper will try and prove that Anyon is right when he says that schools socio-economic class determines the type of instructions students receive. When you have a poor educational system, then the future generation will be poorly equipped with skills. The only way out is to get exceptional teachers who can teach students on how to make hypotheses which is one of the key requirement to survive in any job. On the other hand, the vocational education system makes students more mediocre and poor problem solvers. They are totally unprepared to go out into the world. Such students have a culture of doing anything possible to get by Most...

At the start of the semester when I registered for this class I thought it would just a walk in the park kind of experience, but I have come to understand that as the course goes on that the class will enable me to interact with other classmates, creating more confidence in me by improving my writing, social and leadership skills. The case study exercise exposed the art of mobilizing others to want to struggle for shared aspirations and also how one person makes a difference in a group. Writing about my personal goals and reflective essay, made me see how much I have improved in my writing and learning. Most of all this class helps me to know more about the role of leadership in supply chain management. The student leadership challenge as I was made to understand is to help me identify able set of skills and abilities that will enable me to effect a change in my present environment and also in the future. I learned that in group projects that each person is accountable for something in a group and if one person messes up than the whole group gets the consequence of the result. In view of this fact I feel more relaxed knowing that each person in my group knows what they were accountable for and would not let the group down on the job. This has increased my awareness of being accountable on what decisions I make as a......

...Michael Wang ENG4U-09 Ms. Kelly October, 8, 2015 Passage analysis test Throughout The Things They Carried, Tim O'Brien presents the horrific events, the average young American soldier experienced in the Vietnam War in a realistic and gut wrenching manner. In the chapter "The Things They Carried", O’Brien effectively employs syntax, detail and repetition and simile to vividly describe the tragic death of Ted Lavender and the sincere regret by the lieutenant Jimmy Cross. The use of syntax and detail can be easily seen throughout the entire passage, especially in describing Ted Lavender’s death “[He] carried 34 rounds when he was shot and killed outside Thai Khe, and he went down under an exceptional burden, more than twenty pounds of ammunition, plus the flak jacket and helmet and rations and water and toilet paper and tranquilizers, and all the rest, plus the unweighed fear.” (O'Brien, 1990) By using compound-complex sentence and listing “twenty pounds of ammunition, flak jacket, helmet, rations, water, toilet paper and tranquilizers [and most importantly], the unweighed fear” (O'Brien, 1990), O'Brien demonstrates not only the physical burdens but also the emotional burdens that a young soldier endures to convey the reader that not only the weight each soldier has to carry in order to survive, but also the weight of their emotional burden. At......
