Week 5 C4

A Student Response From:CristianGood or bad. Right or wrong. We don’t always get an answer to the things we do in our lives. We simply have to trust ourselves to make decisions that will be good. But what is good? What is bad? The world is not black and white. The grey expanse extends beyond the horizon, beyond even the …

Week 5 C3

A Student Response From:Er As someone who never feels like enough when concerning their culture, I completely relate to the idea of needing to conform to social norms and the such.

Week 5 C2

A Student Response From:Josiah “After reading up on Rose’s “Survival Instinct” prompt is being thankful for our childhoods. Growing up, each individual goes through their first stages of the chapter, from there it develops into your story.

Week 5 C1

A Student Response From:SamuelAfter reading this post, I immediately thought about a quote from a Batman movie. Ironically, the quote comes from The Joker who is the antagonist. There’s a scene within the movie where The Joker says, “They laugh at me because I’m different. I laugh at them because they’re all the same”. I think that we spend a …

Week 5 B4

A Student Response From:Aubrey I am very lucky to have grown up with a roof over my head and food on the table, but when I was a kid I didn’t understand how lucky I was.

Week 5 B1

A Student Response From:ChristopherCan I separate my thinking from the influence of how my mother dressed me? She never dressed me in clothes that had images on them or brand names with logos. Solid colors only. Somehow my mom made it work, I never felt it was unfair, that’s just how it was. Now, I don’t like wearing brands, I …

Week 5 A4

A Student Response From:CatWhen I was younger I had to walk to school. Whether it was raining, windy or sunny my mom would pick me up and carry me on her back. And if she couldn’t that day my grandfather would let me ride on his anorexic malnourished horse. And yet still, my mother would brush and make me two …

Week 5 A3

A Student Response From:g tI’ve often wondered about these people Rose speaks of- these people living in tiny houses and buying teslas and becoming “minimalists” isnt it rather insulting?
