this picture is from last summer; however I think it is a good image to describe what I want to do/how I want to contribute to the world. This was taken in Puerto Rico. As I say in my manifesto, My goal is to travel and complete volunteer work wherever I go. My goal is to see the world is a big place full of family and people, that I hope to meet, and opportunities I hope to take and experience more of each and every culture!! #anth101 #anth101challenge10 #anth101bridget1030

Every action I take can have a positive impact, no matter how small. And my positive impact on somebody could have a positive impact on somebody else’s life. I can’t think of anything more heroic than starting a chain reaction of positivity in my community that could potentially grow exponentially. #anth101 #anth101challenge10 #anth101bridget1030

My goal is to make a difference in the world of animals. Whether that’s by being a wildlife vet and conservationist, or a volunteer at a shelter. I want to make their lives better since we are the reason they are suffering #anth101 #anth101challenge10 #anth101bridget1030

I hope to be able to serve others that can’t serve themselves through the field of nursing! Ever since I was little, I have always wanted to help others and the nursing field does exactly that! #anth101 #anth101challenge10 #anth101bridget1030

Thank you, #anth101 for practically taking over my instagram, and forcing me to share my experience in this class with all my friends and family. I have learned a lot along the way, and can’t wait to see what amazing things the future holds for me and all my fellow classmates. Now, let’s go change the world! #anth101challenge10 #anth101bridget1030

Oh wow have i had to break out of my comfort zone for anthropology this semester. While my place in this world still might not be fully realized, i’ve come to experience many new cultures, thoughts, and ideas. So long, anthropology challenges, you have helped me to build my manifesto, and even a new(ish) outlook on life and the people living. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge10

My overall goal in life is very broad, but VERY meaningful to me: To serve the Lord and live up to the type of woman my Grandma was. To have a family as loving, caring, and kind as hers. Family is ALWAYS there for me. God and Family is all I need, everything else is extra. No one is perfect, but this lady came pretty damn close. 💛💎⏳🎁👨‍👩‍👧‍👦#anth101 #anth101challenge10 #anth101bridget1030

Challenge5 The UnThing Experiment: For the past 48 hours I decided to give up TV. Like completely, I don’t even have it installed in my room right now and I’ll explain. The first day I disconnected my Tv I thought this would be pretty challenging because I do catch my self watching TV a lot and sometimes I’ll spend hours watching history channel. But to my surprise this one actually a refresher. The second day is when I realized how much time I had on my hands “not watching Tv” so I took it upon my self to go for walks and enjoy the day since it’s finally warming up! Even when I come back to my room it’s much easier for me to complete my work and then focus on other assignments that are scheduled. What I truly enjoy is having people come into my dorm like usual, but actually having time to look face to face and have a conversation. I didn’t know how special it was too just sit and talk, or be outside and talk. For my final conclusion I’ve come to understand the gems that I’ve given up due to me watching TV all the time so I decided to completely sell my Tv and most likely not even have a Tv for next year. #anth101challenge5 #anth101bridget1030

“Every day he puts on a mask because our hero faces great sadness in his life but plays it off in a comical way. Our hero does not wear a physical mask but an emotional one. He has great pains inside, great sadness, but he does not want to bring those around him down by sharing his true emotions, so every day when he wakes up, he puts on the mask” #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge9

#anth101 #anth101challenge9 #anth101bridget1030 So I searched for forever to try to find the perfect picture to go along with this challenge and I came up short of the true inspiration I was looking for. I think what I found works though because it depicts one of the mentors I have found on my journey through life, the one and only Kat Anglemyer. She has helped me through the good times and the bad, is always giving me the best advice, and keeps my head in the right place. She is one of the main reasons I can find joy in my college experience, and I am forever grateful for her.

“The leadoff hitter for Blue Valley hit a sharp grounder to my left. I took off, taking three steps, then dove. Sliding into the outfield grass I fielded the ball and threw it to first. I had just made a diving play. After doing this I now feel that I have gained respect from my team and earned the starting spot at second base for the rest of the season. At the end of the inning I went back into the dugout to everybody high fiving me and complimenting my play.” This is an exert from my hero story on one of the trials that I had to face. After a season ending injury my junior year, I came back my senior year with my teammates and coaches not respecting or trusting me to play. In my story, I focused on our most important game that season; playing our rival at Kauffman Stadium. I had many trials throughout the game and eventually became a hero by hitting in the go-ahead run to win the game. This one game has influenced my life through leadership and character, and has strived me to be a hero for any challenge given to me. #anth101 #anth101challenge9 #anth101bridget1030

For challenge 8, i decided to try to trace where my clothes come from! So i chose my jeans from American Eagle! American eagle is based out of Pittsburgh, PA. The materials of the jeans were made in china. This was product was sold in the mall in Overland Park, ks. The clothing comes in shipments in semi-trucks. The production of the product is done in the factories in PA. The extraction of the jeans comes from China. The costs to the people were probably work labor and maybe time of production. Now I couldnt come in contact for step 2 of this process because American Eagle is nation wide and tracing it back to China, there was no direct information leading me to a specific producer in China. So as an alternate, i lived on $2 a day. I waited to do this challenge because living in the dorms makes it a little easier to get by. So, I went home this past weekend and did this challenge! I live in the suburbs of olathe, ks. So, walking to the closest bathrooms would be the closest walmart or gas station. Using $2 for food could get me something at a fast food restaurant or some snack at the gas station, but nothing that would or should meet nutritional needs. This was definitely a challenge for me, but I did get lots of exercise. Also, I didnt realize how much i relied on electricity. My phone was almost completely dead by midday and theres wasnt much entertainment for me. It was definitely a different lifestyle than i am used too!! #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge8

His wisdom for me was to get the most out of the mistake I made in the way of gaining foresight. William S.

Living on $2 yesterday was rough. I caught a ride to Walmart to buy 1/4 pound of turkey and ate that during the day. Without electricity and running water wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. This challenge however made have a lot of empathy for the poor people in the world and I don’t think I could live like that everyday. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101bridget1030

#anth101repost #anth101bestofchallenge8 @dbbodily • • • #anth101challenge8 I considered satisfying the demands of this challenge by carrying a bucket of water for a mile. Then became disillusioned with this option as I contemplated purchasing a bucket. Who made it? Where were the materials extracted? To what cost? And how many 5 gallon buckets find landfills as a result of this challenge? In the end, I spent time with my friend, Jia Xuan Li. She spoke to me concerning the severe environmental impact, or cost, that manufacturing in China inflicts. Specifically, to her home and neighboring regions: Jiangxu and Guandong, where pollution is high. All the things I own have an invisible story, a highly complex network of interconnects. Interconnections that are extremely difficult to penetrate. #anth101bridget1030

For my item I decided to use my Nike running shoes that I got so much use out of during the 28 day challenge. I bought the shoes from, if I’m not mistaken, the Fort Leavenworth BX. I called to find out more information but unfortunately wasn’t given anything useful. On the shoes it says made in China but based on my research I’ve narrowed it down to being produced in India, China, or Vietnam because they have 17-26 shoe factories in them, more than most countries. I can imagine it took a lot of hard work from the workers who made the shoes. I know that the conditions in those factories are very poor. I’m sure that it also had costs involving the environment. Since I did not succeed in my efforts I tried to go a day living on $2 worth of food and no electricity or water. But obviously I still had heat/air conditioning in my house. The only time a strayed from this was when I went to the gym and used their water fountains, which I guess is still a public building. I couldn’t really think of anything I could eat for a day that I didn’t need to cook and I could get for less than $2, so I bought a loaf of bread and toughed it out with that. It wasn’t great and it wasn’t very nutritious but it was filling. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101bridget1030

For my #anth101challenge8, I decided to try and find just WHO knitted my H&M brand sweater. Following serial numbers and the tags led me to a list of garment factories and manufacturers in Cambodia, unsure of where to start, I found a website that let me see which company supported each factory. There was only one factory that made knit sweaters in Cambodia in 60% cotton and 40% polyester who’s main buyer was “Hennes and Mauritz Inc.” Gladpeer Garments Factoy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia is where I’m pretty sure my sweater was made! But I still didn’t know just WHO was knitting the sweater, so I decided to give them a call. Waiting until close to 10:00pm Friday (Cambodia is a 12 hour time difference), I was able to make a call to Gladpeer Garments. They received an awkward voice mail from someone who definitely did not speak Khmer from Manhattan, Kansas. I was a little ticked that they never answered me, but hopefully they will call back soon, and if they do I will be sure to update! Anyway since I didn’t actually meet anyone I had to live off of $2 and no electricity or plumbing. I read for like 8 hours and went to bed when the sun went down because I wasn’t allowed to use any lights in my room. Living without electricity, a car, plumbing, and $2 for food is a tough existence and I’d like to apologize to anyone in the world who doesn’t have these things because wow I am blessed. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

Humans of my stuff: My mom used to work as a manager for Quik Trip and they used to give her all this stuff. A few years ago it was this customized Swiss gear backpack and it has served me very well through the years of school and life and it still going on strong. For this challenge I wanted to find the origins of this backpack to find out what went into it. I started out by going to the Swiss gear website on the backpacks tab. When there was no information on the individual products page, I checked out the product information because surely there would be information about where the backpack comes from. Unfortunately, it was just information about some of the different features some of their products had. So I went to the contact us tab. They decided they didn’t want to post a phone number and only left me with a online send a message option to await their reply. Which never came. So I hit a dead end and completely failed this challenge. So, I decided to try and walk a mile with 5 gallons of water. I didn’t have a 5 gallon jug so I went to the rec center and tried to walk around the track with weights. It was very hard as I am not fit at all. I had to take multiple breaks and the whole experience made me think about what I had and what I was taking for granted. People do this every day with only a few dollars to survive and take care of their families. Makes you really think about things. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101bridget1030

#anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101bridget1030 I chose to trace back a product that I need on a daily basis: my glasses. Morse specifically, my black plastic/acetate Ray-Bans (RB 5228 5014 55-17). I found out that a company called Luxottica has been manufacturing Ray-Bans since 1999. Some RB are made in Italy, but Luxottica also has factories in China. My glasses say “made in China,” so I looked more into that. Turns out, manufacturing facilities of Luxottica in China are located in Dongguan, which is one of the most industrial regions of the country. The principles of these facilities are: innovation, efficiency, and respect for the environment. All product lines are processes were designed to minimalists environmental impact -reducing use of water and electricity, and limiting waste. There are welfare programs in place for all employees to utilize: enjoy your meal, feel at home, and care about you. There is a company canteen that provides weekly examples of regional foods, lodgings provided near the facilities for workers far from home or on special shifts, and many services dedicated to health and sustainable mobility. I tried to look into where RB gets the raw sheets of acetate for their eyewear, but couldn’t turn anything up. This “Processing the Raw Bar” video was pretty cool though: http://www.luxottica.com/en/the-making-of-eyewear?p=material-glasses/processing-raw-bar Because I didn’t get in contact with a specific person who played a role in making my glasses, I decided I should try to carry the gallon bucket of water a mile, but as I have no athletic ability, I also failed at that. Buckets of water are just so awkward to carry - there’s really no good way to do it.

After researching where my Dell laptop was assembled, shipped from, and where some of the parts came from I was unable to talk to anyone in those stages of production, so I carried a 5 gallon bucket for one mile. That was not an enjoyable experience and I sympathize with anyone who has to carry water no matter the distance. It was interesting to see where all of the parts cam from which was mainly Malaysia and a few pieces from Indonesia, then it was assembled in China. The site I used just described those three countries in that manner and did not give specifics about each individual parts’ original location. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101bridget1030

For challenge 8, I decided I would attempt to look into the manufacturing of Lululemon. To say the least, I am pretty obsessed with their clothing and I was curious to see if any information about their company would appear. I found that they are a Canadian athletic retailer and they have four distribution centers: Canada, Australia, Ohio, and Washington. They claim that they are a very ethical company. However, I wasn’t able to find much more information out about their company. Therefore, I decided to try and live off of 2 dollars and no electricity. In all honesty, this was pretty difficult for me. I had to walk to the Rec because the distance from the dorms to the rec and back isn’t 2 dollars worth of gas. When my phone started to die, I wasn’t able to recharge it until I went to bed, so I didn’t have a phone for about half of the day which was a challenge in itself. I found myself only being able to eat the 99 cent pack of ramen noodles that I had previously bought. I started to become really irritated because I didn’t have a good source of protein in my diet for that day and I was in the dark for the whole day. Overall, this was a really eye-opening experience. It goes to show how difficult living off of 2 dollars truly is, yet people in those developing countries and in those manufacturing companies do it daily. It made me realize how fortunate I am. It was interesting to see how far 2 dollars could stretch, but I found myself not being able to do as much because I didn’t have the money. Overall, it was a good yet challenging experience. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101bridget1030

for this challenge i tried to track down some of the people that helped make my gymshark leggings (that i bought from their website), but i didnt make it very far. instead, i decided to go 24 hours without electricity and with only $2. this wasnt as hard as i thought it would be because i was on campus most of the day. the hardest part was at night when i needed to see stuff in my room but i couldnt use the lights. this really opened my eyes to how easy my life is compared to people in developing countries. it was super hard to only spend $2 for food (since i dont have a car, the only thing i really needed to buy was food). mcdonalds probably would have been my best option if i lived closer, but instead i used one of my friends guest passes at the derb. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101bridget1030

What about a domestic product? I contacted Fender to learn my bass was assembled at their Coronado, Ca location. From what I could gather, the wood is selected from a supplier offering material from the Northwest region of the U.S. However, a direct connection with someone, anyone, working in a factory is, at this point, a dead end. I suspect, visiting these sites (California, Europe) would expedite this process, but, I have forgotten where I parked my submarine. #anth101challenge8 #anth101bridget1030

#anth101challenge8 Tracking the Commodity Chain: My coat brand is a third generation family business located in Germany. I have learned all their products are tailored at European factories. I am awaiting correspondence with a living human to further determine origin/supplier of materials, to connect with a factory worker, and acquire knowledge of their distribution. In time, I think, I will have some success with this business. Yet, to date, a fail. #anth101bridget1030

This is Gabe Weathers, I met him back in highschool but never got that close to him. what he described as his perfect day is waking up feeling good, going to all of his classes, being productive, hitting his juul, and getting a good nights rest. He grew up here in Manhattan until he moved to North Carolina and lived there for two years. After that he came back to manhattan and attended the catholic middle school, after that he went to manhattan highschool and now attends kstate studying MIS. I didn’t know that we had so much in common, we both love the same games, and have a very similar taste in music along with a lot of other interesting things. He’s a very hardworking person but struggles with procrastination. He currently has an internship and has been doing that for this whole semester. I hope after having this talk we can become closer friends. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge7

For my #anthchallenge7 I decided to talk to a girl in my dorm. Her name is Bethany. Throughout the year I have noticed us having differing opinions on many subjects, so I knew she would be a good person to talk to. When I started asking her questions I soon realized that we did have a few things in common as well such as our taste in clothes, our friendships with our moms, and our love for traveling. We had many differences ranging from the cleanliness of our dorm room to the city vs farm life to our stances on gun control, abortion, political views, religious beliefs, etc. very different in depth, but similar on the surface level. Also five positive things I noticed about her is that she is compassionate, loves animals, is friendly enough to be the only one that an introvert is comfortable talking to, try’s new foods and experiences, and can be an advocate for those who don’t like to speak up. So as you can see we have a lot of differences, but those don’t have to be a bad thing. Since she is different than me she can reach out to those introverts who wouldn’t otherwise make friends, and she can touch peoples lives by her simple acts of kindness. She is becoming a great person and our differing views make us both think and consider the opposing side, which is really what is necessary to work towards compromise in our ever changing world. We have to see both sides and understand what the best choice is for everyone. I believe she will be an inspiring voice and I wish her all the best! We chose to draw a picture describing our collective thoughts after our discussion instead of taking a selfie. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

I’ve come to understand that my other has a unique understanding of his faith and how he interprets my pursuit in my faith. I truly believe our conversation really helped reveal two completely different upbringings and cultures. Yet with great caution I continued to answer his question while understanding what his intent about religions discussions was. Overall we had an amazing conversation and I truly believe that there was clarity for both parties to understand ones faith. #anth101challenge7 #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

I got to sit down and have a nice conversation with Quin who is also taking anthropology. We talked about a lot of different controversial issues such as abortion, gun laws, and climate change. For the most part, we agreed with these topics but our conversation veered off to talking about Baseball. We both are baseball fans but there is one key difference. Quin is a Royals fan and I am a Red Sox fan. There is no huge rivalry between the Royals and Red Sox but there are many differences between the two teams. We discussed how the Royals are not looking too good this year because they lost a lot of key players last season. The Red Sox on the other hand are looking really good but don’t have a lot of depth in their bullpen. It was fun talking to Quin about our disagreements in baseball and I got to know him better even though we don’t agree on everything. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101bridget1030

#anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101bridget1030 When I was searching for a person to be my “other encounter,” I asked a variety of people I knew a simple question: pancakes or waffles? Now, Nick Diddle had no idea what he was getting himself into when he sent back the reply, “pancakes,” but boy was he in for a treat! I had found the person who disagreed with me on one of the most controversial topics there is: whether or not waffles are better than pancakes. Of course, we went on to also discuss life after death, gun control, whether or not college athletes should be paid, and basic politics, but I just couldn’t shake the fact that Nick was so fundamentally wrong in his belief that pancakes are better than waffles. My biggest take away from the conversation was something Nick said: “Even though you may not agree with some thoughts or some ideas, it’s a part of the thought process.” Nick was saying you can’t close people with differing viewpoints out because then you would only see things one way, and that helps no one. And that’s something we can agree on.

so for challenge 7, i took a sort of different perspective than what is probably expected. Now, there are lots of people in my community, back home, I couldve spoken to and heard their viewpoints on life, but I chose to meet with Meg. Now, Meg has a mental disability;however, that is not the difference(s) i focused on when meeting with her. Going through a couple of the provided questions from the website, I learned Meg and I are both alike in many ways but very different in others. For example, a “perfect day” for Meg would be “a snowy, wintery day being stuck inside watching movies.” Now me, I cannot stand being stranded in one place all day, and I cannot sit through movies to save my life, I would prefer a spring or fall type day adventuring outside. Now those differences, although small, says a lot about who we are as people. Some of the more important questions we discussed were the questions regarding “changing one thing about how you were raised, or about yourself.” For me, I could come up with so many things I would change/wish were different About myself with 5 seconds. But, after Talking to Meg about this, my perspective changed. When I asked her what she would change about how she was raised, she got this kind of confused and disappointed face, and I asked what was wrong and she said “well, I would never change anything about how I was raised or who I am because God gave me a disability because he knew I was strong and I was one of a kind.” This was the most intriguing thing, to see and hear that someone, although disabled, they are stronger and more passionate than myself and anyone i know. I have never been a religious person and have never really blamed lifes happenings on God or “gods plan” for me, but Meg is right. We shouldnt want to change who we are. So, Meg and I didnt have any huge disagreements in our beliefs, but she was able to sway me into believing a belief she is passionate about and a belief that is important to her personally. #anth101challenge7 #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

Challenge 7: Other Encounter Xavier is a guy from my biology class last semester. We got together to study for tests and I even introduced my other friends with similar interests to him. So we have never talked deeply. I messaged him and we talked and got caught up and we found out that we were more similar than different. He grew up in a nice home here in Manhattan while I moved around a lot as a kid, yet we both have trouble connecting with people on a deep personal level, past like 1 person exception. Our perfect day revolves around relaxing with that one person for hours on end, and probably involving food haha. We did find some differences though. He is very much in love with science and reading and learning. He is like a sponge for knowledge and he is super smart. Me, on the other hand, have to work a bit harder on things that I don’t really have an interest in. Without this challenge, I wouldn’t have learned that we have more similar personalities than I thought he had with my friends with similar interests! #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101bridget1030

this is bo, hes one of my best friends. hes really goofy, loyal, and gives really good advice. bo and i have been friends for a couple of years but we dont usually talk about deep topics. we dont have a ton in common but we both help each other and have fun when we get to hang out. after asking bo my questions, i realized that he is going to make a huge impact on so many people’s lives- like he has on mine. he said one of his strengths is trustworthiness and i couldnt agree more. he is one of those people that anyone would tell anything to. bo has made me realize a lot of things over the past couple years and helped me grow up a lot. he has made me show my friends more that i care, act more mature, and overall be a better person. he will continue to help me and lots of other people, as well as achieving his goals. he said that one of his weaknesses is a lack of drive and patience, but its very obvious that if hes passionate about something then he will do it. im excited to see how much he will accomplish in the next few years:-) #anth101challenge7 #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

For my #anth101challenge7 I talked to my roommate Jake. We might live together but honestly we don’t ever talk or really know each other. Jake and I are two very different people, him being from a large farm in VA and me growing up in the Las Vegas suburbs, however, I learned that we actually have more in common than I thought. Jake is an unbelievably cool guy, and while we may not run in each other’s friend groups, we’ll always have each other’s backs. I’m extremely happy that Jake and I were able to speak to each other for so long and hopefully we might spend more time together as the year comes to an end. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

This is Caitlin! We have been best friends since we were 3 years old. Even though we have a lot in common, we have a lot of differences as well. I found this challenge a perfect time to get into deep conversation and be able to learn more about our views. We talked about politics, and we realized we have differing ideas on many controversial topics. After listening to her points of views, it made me take some things into consideration and I was able to understand why she feels the way she does. While sometimes it was hard to wrap my mind around her ideas and thoughts, I was able to remain open-minded and learned a lot more than I knew prior. Caitlin is also very into history, where as I am not. However, we both love fridays, summer, and traveling. We also discussed what we valued in a person and what makes one unique. Caitlin is very into nature as she wants to study atmospheric science, where as I am more into the medical side of things. We got to discuss why we want to go into those fields and what made us passionate about those things. I got to hear her discuss what interests her about Earth and nature and it was really interesting to be able to get a new perspective on the world. I loved being able to take in more information and be able to remain open-minded and have the urge to try something new and listen to her thoughts and feelings. Overall, it was great to be able to be involved in an in-depth conversation. Even though we are best friends, we don’t normally talk about our differing opinions and views on topics. However, it was amazing to learn more about the wonderful, caring person I call my bestfriend. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101bridget1030

#anth101challenge7 Following my conversation with fellow classmate and friend, Ricky, I realized I’d forgotten to get the required selfie for this post. This pushed me to summarize our time in an image that reflects what was learned. The greatest differences between Ricky and I revolve around faith. Outside of this challenge, I would not have taken the effort to sit with Ricky and hear from him about how his experiences inform his belief and vise versa. Doing so led me to think, everyone we see in class, on the street, in our homes knows the same emotions. From joy and happiness to pain and sorrow. Under the surface of perceived differences resides this commonality, regardless of how great these differences may seem. The clash of values and personal preference often results in expressions a defense, a need to assert our self-recognized legitimate arguments. So, a question sprouted: Could focusing instead on our shared human experience produce compassion for others? This question remains, yet I’m finding the answer is less important than contemplating the implication of the question in my everyday relationships. #anth101bridget1030

Though it might not look like it, and even though I am late to post, in the time I started my challenge I managed to lose 20 pounds! It was hard at first but over the course of losing weight it progressively got easier, I didn’t have to drag myself out of bed to go to the gym. I’m now healthier and will continue this weight loss journey until I reach my goal weight #anth101bridget1030 #anth101 #anth101challenge3

Today I spoke with my best friends mother, Julie Kammerer. We found out that we have a few things in common, including the fact that we are both Catholic, both like humor, and we both value family. In fact as it turns out, friends and family are the things we are most grateful for. I asked her what she would want to change if she could change anything about how she said and her answer was, less fighting between her, her mom, and her brother. I asked her what roles love and affection play in her life and she replied that it plays a role in her everyday life because you show love through everything you do such as laundry, cooking, etc… When she’s alone, the things that she does that would tell us the most about her are that she takes quiet time and prays, she’s gone ziplining upside down, cooking, singing, and listening to music. A couple of we statements that we came up with were that we were both in this room feeling fatigued, we both feel blessed to be together again, and we are both feeling full (we just had dinner together). If we were going to become close friends one thing that would be important for me to know would be that she likes to share deep personal information and that she makes a lot of her decisions on her faith life, she’s an “adventurous rule follower”. We have the “adventurous rule follower” part in common but unfortunately differ in the other two. Her biggest regret was not having a good relationship with her brother. Lastly, her idea of a perfect day would be to get up, pray her rosary, have her kids not fight, walk with a friend of hers, have a nice family supper and family time afterwards, and hang out with her husband. Overall I envy her in her faith and I think it has and will continue to take her far in life. I have always struggled to find my faith but talking to her you can tell there’s not a doubt in her mind. She’s clearly a very loving and devoted mother and I hope to be as stable in my faith and be surrounded by that much love and family when I get old. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101bridget1030

~~~~~~Perspective ~~~~ That's what the past 28 days (give or take a few) have given me. Meditation hasn't solved all my problems, but I can more easily dive into a state closer to serentiy, better suited to understand my jumble of thoughts and allow them to exist fully, but also to not be a burden. With just 5 minutes removed from my hectic schedule of never-ending action, I've learned that just being in the full now can be more fruitful than always planning ahead or reliving the past. Though the #28daychallenge is over, meditation is something I'll keep with me, same as the lessons I've learned from this challenge. I've failed and learned that that's okay. I've learned to trust my self just a little more. I've learned that it's okay to take a step back, even if just for a second to just breathe fully. I've gained a more mindful disposition that helps keep in sight the here and now, because truly that all we have. 📸 cred: @notkeithw #anth101challenge3 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101 #28daychallenge

Challenge 3- 28th Day Reflection. Through the past 28 days I had challenges my self to learn a new skill which was stop play the piano, as the days past I felt pretty confident on having some success to learning atleast one song......oh how wrong I was towards the end of the test I realized my challenge was a little to much for what I could handle and I knew I need way more time to learn how to play. But atleast I was able to challenge my time and mind to attempt a new goal. This for sure was fun and worth attempting again. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge3 PART2

For my 28 day challenge I decided to teach myself to do a backflip. Through 28 days I was unable to conquer the fear of doing a backflip on the ground but I was able to do it on a trampoline and a foam pit. I have stretched my human potential by doing a backflip on a trampoline. #anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101bridget1030

#anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101bridget1030 Day 28: Time to reflect. I am definitely in a better place now, as compared to 28 days ago when I first started writing myself love letters. Some days, it was harder to make time to write to myself, but as I read back on everything I wrote I can’t help but smile. Most of the time, when I take up journaling, it is because I need somewhere to vent negative emotions, so it is a nice change to have a journal filled with nothing but loving words. 10/10 would recommend learning little ways to love everything about yourself. It makes this whole life thing so much better.

for my 28 day challenge i decided to try to do the splits everyday, and try to get them all the way down. When i was younger i did gymnastics and stretched for a long time at each practice. In high school i coached gymnastics, and still stretched everyday with all of the kids i coached. However, in the past 6 months or so, my flexibility has drastically changed. It has caused me to have more shoulder, hip, and back pain. Though i missed a few days throughout the challenge, my flexibility has improved, and my back and hip pain has significantly decreased. This challenge has reminded me how important stretching it is, and how much it impacts how you feel. Each day after i stretched, i felt so much better than before. It has shown me what it is like to commit to doing something everyday (which is pretty hard when you hate actually doing it), and how rewarding it is to see your work pay off. Even though i didnt end up getting my splits down all the way by the end of the challenge, i will continue to stretch and try to improve them, along with other stretching and foam rolling. #anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101bridget1030

Before this class I had looked at more collectivistic cultures, for example, the small tribe in the amazon, as being a bit more primitive and inefficient. I used to think the simplicity of those communities was a bad thing. It is easy to be drawn to this conclusion in an individualistic society such as our own, a society in which we value individual accomplishment and the ability to be self sufficient. A good way to show an example of this would be to compare golf to basketball, golf being individualistic and basketball being collectivistic. In golf you rely completely on your own skill and knowledge whereas in basketball you have to work as a team in order to score. But individualistic societies tend to separate people rather than bringing them together, whereas these collectivistic cultures value relationships above all. I think that our capitalistic economic structure perpetuates this because individual gain is valued over relationships. But I’ve come to realize that because their culture is different doesn’t mean that it’s worse. I think there’s definitely something to be valued about how much emphasis they put on relationships and the welfare of the community. I wish that we were a little bit more like that in America sometimes.

Well, I’m coming up on the end of my 28 day challenge and I think I’ve made some really great progress! I may not have gotten myself to run everyday or gotten down to a six and a half minute mile but I definitely think that this experience has put me on track to start monitoring my health and fitness more closely. As I’ve seen with trying to get in shape in the past, the hardest part is always getting started so at least I have that out of the way! This has inspired me to try another 28 day challenge. Me and some friends like to get together on the weekends and have a few beers, I think for the next 28 days I’ll hold off on drinking and see where it goes. I think it’ll help me shed a few pounds and make it easier to get down to that 6 minute mile. #anth101challenge3 #anth10128daychallenge #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

Huge update on my 28 Day Challenge! So originally my plan was to go running every day, however, within about a week I started lifting weights instead. Even though my original plan changed pretty quickly, out of all 28 days, I worked out 25 times!!! (I was sick the 3 I missed) I’ve been feeling more confident in myself, my grades have risen, and I feel great. This 28 day challenge has turned itself into a lifelong challenge. I have a ton of fun working out and will definitely look forward to it each and every day. I mentioned in my first post about how I used to be 10 pounds lighter, and while weight means a lot less to me right now overall, I did in fact achieve that goal of losing 10 pounds! My eating habits have changed for the better as well, and as a whole, I just feel good. This experience has helped me in more ways than I can explain and I see no point in stopping now. #anth101bridget1030 #anth101 #anth101challenge3

So,the 28 challenge has come to an end;however, i have set a goal for myself to work out 5 days out of the 7 day week, hoping I can eventually keep up with 7 full workouts a week!! Completing this challenge has forced me to stop being lazy and make use of my time. I found that going to the gym at night time, makes my sleep schedule a lot more reasonable and also working out has given me more energy throughout the day! I worked out 24/28 days, due to some health conflicts down the road, but I am definitely feeling a difference. It also has impacted my eating habits. I still have sweets and unhealthy foods occasionally but I have found myself wanting a salad, or fruit lately! Overall, this challenge has turned my lifestyle into a healthier and more energetic one!! I plan to continue this as long as I can, not just to get in shape but to be even more healthier, happier, and active! I have found exercising to be a great stress reliever and a great way for alone time! Definitely something I look forward to now everyday! Also, thankful my friend Abby joined in on this challenge and motivated me each and every day!! Cant wait to see what continuing this challenge does for me!! #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge6 #anth101

Challenge 6 Part 2: Social Construction of Church BEHAVIOR: Previous to this assignment I have attended many church services in my life varying from the typical Christian denominations. This past weekend, however, I visited a Unitarian Universalist Church. The significance of this is that they do not have a creed to follow (no written laws or beliefs) and they invite people of all beliefs to come (including theists, atheists, and anything in between or outside of). The message given was about balance in life of things such as work and play, yin and yang, day and night. The minister addressed these topics through the demonstration of the art of Tai Chi and emphasized that all these opposing parts of life intertwined with each other at the core and existed only as a whole. BELIEF: The idea of having an entire church service that not once mentions Jesus Christ or the Lord God my Savior was completely incomprehensible to me. Seeing this type of service and acknowledging their form of connection with each other instead of with God was eye opening. STRUCTURE: The idea of church has always been associated with God in all forms of my life, but now I know there can be church services without God (or a God other than mine). Our culture (the Nacirema) has constructed the idea that church must be about God. My takeaway from this challenge is that there can be similar teachings between both Christians and non Christians, but they have different origins and reasons for being taught. As a Christian I can see change in my view of non Christians, as having more connection to Christians than I thought, but our similarities begin in different places. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge6part2 #anth101challenge6

Stay Thirsty... Challenge 3 was interesting to say the least. It was a struggle to choose Water over soda or Gatorade just because I like flavoring instead of plain boring water. The more Water I drink, the more I want to drink which is surprising to me. Also I am constantly dehydrated just because I don’t drink enough liquid in general, so drinking water has helped my overall health and I will be continuing my efforts the rest of my life hopefully. Also part of the challenge was to workout more which has been more like every other day and has also been very beneficial. #challenge3reflection #anth101challenge3 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101 #anth101challenge3reflection

for challenge 5 i gave up facebook, twitter, and instagram for 5 days. not having social media for almost a week made me realize how much on my time i waste scrolling through them. also, hanging out with my friends was different because everyone is always on their phones. its really hard to get people to put their phones down and go out and do something or live in the moment- im guilty of this too😬 i found that i had a lot more time in the mornings before class to get homework done or read instead of looking through my social medias for 30+ minutes. at the beginning i constantly wanted to look at twitter or instagram, but by the end of the 5 days i really didnt mind not having it. it forced me to talk to more people and not stare at my phone constantly. i will definitely use social media a lot less from now on! i put my social media apps in a folder on the second page, so they are harder to get to and not the first thing i see when i open my phone. i think this will (and has) help me stop using them so much in the long run. without using social media and being glued to our phones our society would be so much more active and social. social media and smart phones has pushed our society even further towards caring what other people think and further away from being confident. instagram is one of the apps that has ads shown on your timeline- urging consumers to buy more or look a certain way. social media also takes away from people learning more about the world around them. when i didnt have my social media i watched more ted talks than i normally do (usually i try to watch a couple a week but last week i watched at least 1 per day when i was done with classes and homework), and i learned a lot that i wouldnt have if i was on social media. i hope that more people will try to spend less time on their phones and spend more time doing fun things with their friends or family! #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge5

This week was tough again. Still fighting ankle injuries last week and I caught a cold this week so I missed a few days. I found out just how hard it is to get up and run in the mornings so I’ve been continuing to run in the evenings. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like I’m on track to break 6 minutes but if I push hard enough this week hopefully I can break 7! #anth101 #anth10128daychallenge #anth101bridget1030

For challenge 6 i was forced to step out of my comfort zone and get uncomfortable! To get uncomfortable I ventured out to Dirty Dawgs Saloon, a country style club complete with country music and swing dancing in Aggieville. I was very uncomfortable. By stepping out of my comfort zone I was able to experience a side of manhattan that I had only watched and made fun of from behind the scenes. While the country life may not be entirely for me yet, at least I am now able to say that I’ve whole heartedly experienced it! #anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101bridget1030 Stay tuned for my challenge 5 wrap up tomorrow (spoilers I’m still sleeping on the floor)

Get Uncomfortable. For this challenge I went to K-States annual Cattlemen’s day. It’s an event that showcases different areas of the cattle industry and shows the different tools they use. I come from from probably the farthest thing from a farming background and when I went here I was super uncomfortable and felt so out of place. Everyone seemed to know at least a little bit of what was going on and I just walked around like a lost puppy until I gained the courage to jump right in and ask questions 😅 #anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101bridget1030

Challenge 6 Getting Uncomfortable: I went to the Unitarian Universalist Church in Manhattan today and listened to a service that did preach about theism, atheism, or any other defined belief. The message was on balance and the demonstrations showed the methods of tai chi. This was very uncomfortable for me as a Lutheran to not only not be worshiping God, but to not have any sort of creed, prayer, or belief in a Holy Spirit. I would’ve never even known there was such a church or “denomination” if it were not for this assignment and google. They’re a very welcoming community and accepting of all beliefs, which made it feel safe, but still very uncomfortable.#anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge6

For my challenge I went to one of my dearest friends baptisms! I grew up in a different religious household (Islam) and we never do anything like this. I got to have a conversation with his family and even his pastor. They are all very lovely people and this was a great and special moment for my friend and I’m very happy for him. This isn’t something I would have ever witnessed if it wasn’t for this challenge and it was very interesting to see another religions practice for my own eyes #anth101challenge6 #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

#anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101bridget1030 It’s no secret I’m a picky eater. To get uncomfortable, I decided to try some Thai foods I’ve never had before. Baan Thai is staffed with lovely servers who happily greet you as you walk in the door. There is always Thai music playing throughout the restaurant as patrons enjoy their meals. I shared in some Crab Rangoon, Pad Thai, and curry with a friend. It was spicier than I’m used to, but I ultimately enjoyed my meal.

this weekend i came back to Olathe! My friend is involved in modeling, which is something I would never be involved in, so I asked to tag along! Now, me, I would never be interested in modeling or anything down that field, but I thought it would be interesting to go watch what all goes into modeling and the behind the scenes of it. It was, indeed very chaotic and very different than what i expected and also very different than how as a society we portray those labeled as “models”. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge6

(i didn’t have time to take a picture since we were working out the whole class period) but, for challenge 6, I decided that I would start attending group workout classes, the one that I started doing was the Hip Hop Dance Class. For starters, I am not the best dancer, so that was a little embarrassing and uncomfortable. However, it was actually a fun experience. I went with some friends from my sorority house and it was a great opportunity to spend time together and get a little workout in. I was out of my comfort zone because I typically don’t do group exercise classes or hip hop dance either, but at the end of the day it was a fun experience! I hope to go back and possibly try out the yoga classes as well! 😇 #anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101bridget1030

for #anth101challenge6 i went to an asian grocery store in overland park. it was a completely new experience, and it was really cool! all of the labels on the food were in english and other languages, which isnt super common in normal american grocery stores. my friend and i were also both really aware that we didnt fit in at all, which was weird because normally we are part of the majority at stores we go to. at the grocery store we went to there were a lot of vegetables and foods that we hadnt seen before. we even found corn and cheese ice cream (which was in spanish for some reason) which sounds really gross... there was a really wide variety of things there that were really interesting, and i plan on going back to buy some things next time im home! #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

This week I’ve made some progress and suffered some setbacks. I’ve made some improvements on my mile time, from the original 8 minutes 6 seconds to 7 minutes 29 seconds. But the other side to that is I suffered a shin splint and have been taking days off here and there to let it heal. The only change i’ll be making this week is to try to start running in the morning rather than the evening, see if it changes the amount of energy and focus I have throughout the day. #anth101bridget1030 #anth10128daychallenge

Challenge 5 Reflection: I gave up Facebook and selfies for an entire week, and reduced the use of other social media’s immensely as well. I also tried not to look at photos as a way of remembering things, and giving up mirrors other than once a day. Facebook has taken away my desire to ask questions about people, because of the simplicity of looking at their wall to see what kind of posts they make and what they’re interests are. A few times during the week I wanted to either add a friend or look up a picture to show someone, but refrained from doing so. Not using the pictures on my phone made me focus on the present more than the past. Mirrors have made it easy to be self conscious about yourself and to wonder what you look like at any given time. Taking selfies kind of ties in with mirrors because they can be used somewhat interchangeably, but also not using selfies makes you think about how you want to word a Snapchat so that people can understand your facial emotions without seeing them. Snapchat creates a sense of talking in person, but actually breaks down the desire of people to be face to face. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge5 #anth101challenge5reflection

Update One: Sleeping without a bed sucks. The hardest part about sleeping without a bed is actually falling asleep, especially when the ac in your room just never quits. However waking up the next morning was very easy, especially when your roommate jumps out of bed directly onto your body! Stay tuned for more updates on this humbling experience. #anth101challenge5 #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

For my challenge 5 I gave up video games! I know it might not sound like anything important to give up but honesty this is all I doin my free time. While not playing games I actually studied more and now have a better understanding of the material in my classes. I also went to the gym more to help with my 28 day challenge. It wasn’t too hard and now I know I can spend less time playing games #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101bridget1030

For this assignment I gave up a Facebook, twitter, snapchat, and Instagram for two days. Day 1: Really what I miss the most is just having something to do to pass the time. If I’m in line to get something to eat or waiting/ walking to a class or even just sitting at home bored I will check twitter or Facebook. It seems like it’s almost as if out of reflex. As soon as I have a moment free I’ll reach for my phone to get up to date. The hardest part of this is probably fighting that reflex and not going straight to social media, it almost feels wrong or out of place not to. I don’t know that I really saw what I had gained on the first day, I was too focused on what I had lost. Day 2: The second day was a bit easier than the first day. I wasn’t as anxious, I guess, about being without social media. Still, every time I pulled my phone out and unlocked it I would immediately hit the snapchat or twitter app but I had to close out and resist it. Without this free time filler I’ve gained a great deal of time to actually do something productive, and I’m more attentive in public to people and things that are going on around me. But really the biggest thing I think I’ve realized is that information that I get from those sources of media basically tell you what to think and how to act. Or at least what the ways that are most acceptable to act. Like on Instagram, you don’t see people often taking close up selfies of just their face, we’ve been taught that generally that’s less acceptable. And maybe you have something you’re proud of that you’ve accomplished and you want to post online but maybe few people post about the general topic of the accomplishment or accomplishment itself so you feel like it would be defiant to the norm set so you don’t post it. And maybe that person would even be hesitant to talk about it in person because of the precedent that was set on social media. Those are just a few examples I thought of but what I’m really trying to say is that I see from a new perspective now the effect that social media can have on the behaviors and interests of people even when “disconnected” from social media. #anth101challenge5 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101

No more makeup! I’ve recently gotten into wearing more makeup, and realized the difference in the health of my skin, so I’m taking this #Challenge5 as an opportunity to see the change of my skin after an entire week of NO makeup! #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #wantmyclearskinback #challenge5 #unthing

Update on challenge 5!! After deleting netflix, i have gained a better understanding of time management. Its Sunday night and I have almost all my school work done for this week! Normally I find myself staying up late to get stuff done, and now i have time to study really well for my exams, since I already completed my homework! I do enjoy netflix, but after this challenge, I am really going to cut back on it and limit myself! #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge5

I am 'unthinging' the car for #anth101challenge5 . However, there are caveats connected to parenting. Also, my phone will become analog, again, due to the stipulations of practice parenting I must have phone capability. Finally, I've decided to do away with hot water. And, yes, with caveats. In the days ahead I will be posting details and updates. #anth101bridget1030

We have become too reliant on the convenience of internet these days. I ,for one, don’t let it get in the way of my school work, but when there is no school work, I am constantly on YouTube or another form of online. So for my unthing challenge, I am getting rid of internet for 3 days, or as long as it takes. I will be using internet for online school work when needed but that is it. I am interested to see how I will manage and what I can find to do with my time when I can’t just lay around on my phone or something. I guess let’s get this thing started😅 #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101bridget1030

#anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101bridget1030 Introducing: The UnThing Experiment! For the next week, I will be giving up spending/ receiving money. I put my debit card and all the cash I could find into a jar, and I’m determined not to spend anything until the week is up. I’ve noticed over the past couple of weeks or so how much unnecessary spending I’ve been doing, and wanted to see how I would manage without the ability to buy a cup of coffee every morning, or make a quick Target run. Look out for updates throughout the week. This should be fun.

for challenge 5, I have decided to give up social media during class, which would also include online shopping as well. I am hoping that by staying off of my phone in class, I will be able to focus more and get things done more efficiently! I know this will be a challenge, but I think my motivation and schoolwork will show an improvement by giving up these little things! 🤗 #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101bridget1030

for challenge 5 i plan on giving up facebook, instagram, and twitter for 5 days. i expect it to be hard because i am so reliant on them for entertainment. when im sitting in class i scroll through them to distract myself, when im in the elevator i look through them so i dont have to talk to other people, and when im eating i scroll through them to distract myself. i think that giving up social media will make me realize how reliant i am, and how much i dont need it. it takes up a lot of my time, and i expect to have a lot more free time to do homework, work out, and hang out with my friends. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101bridget1030

Challenge 5 Update 2 Not using Facebook has given me time to doodle more and sleep more. Today I realized I wanted to add a new friend on FB, but couldn’t, so I’ll be anticipating sending the friend request on Sunday or Monday. I’ve had more time to focus on my homework and less time on all of my social media, not just Facebook. Keeping in touch with my friends and family is important to me and I use FB for most of that. I haven’t posted on FB since I started college though, so that’s not the part I’m missing. I think about the people I usually see in my newsfeed and wonder how they are doing. Sometimes I think if I had their phone number I could just call them, but I doubt I would do that either. If I gave up FB for a year I would probably send letters to my family with pictures inside of them. #anth101challenge5 #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

For challenge 5, i thought about what it is that I use everyday, that keeps me from getting stuff done and from being social. So, I decided to delete netflix off my phone and also I took it off my laptop. I have no other access to it. I am hoping over the next 48 hours or more, I can go out and make a better use of my time, rather than coming back from class and laying in bed and watching a movie!! #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge5

Updat on Challenge 5. It’s hard for me to resist looking at Facebook, but it’s improving my time management a lot! Also giving up selfies has helped me to not care what I look like throughout the day, so I worry less about my appearance and just focus on my classes. I really like to look through my photo albums on my phone and just reflect on what I’ve done and who I am now, but giving up photos has made me think only about the memories I made which is a cool/different perspective. #anth101challenge5 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101 #challenge5update

Challenge 5: Un-Facebook, Un-Selfie, and reduce use of social media, photos, and mirrors. During my first day away from Facebook I caught myself looking for the app icon about five times. Continuing to use Snapchat, but not sending selfies and asking my friends to return non selfies has also been interesting to see what else we can send pictures of and ow we can understand what we are doing and where we are instead of seeing each other’s faces. I’m not fully willing to give up mirrors, but once I’m dressed for the day, I will not check the mirror again until the next morning. I am attempting to do this for the full week. #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge5

So I’ve been trying to get out and run everyday. I’ve been trying to run around the same pace and see how long I can run. I took my baseline mile time and ran it in 8 minutes and 6 seconds. I was hoping to get to run the mile again today to see how I’ve improved but I just couldn’t get around to it. I didn’t get around to running Wednesday, I just couldn’t get myself motivated. But I have noticed that getting out and running everyday has given me more energy throughout the day and has helped me get motivated get back into strength training workouts as well! I’m going to try to run my mile again tomorrow so i’ll post again tomorrow with the results.#anth101 #anth10128daychallenge #anth101bridget1030

I have never been the person to play video games, but my roommate has a PlayStation. Throughout this semester I have been playing a lot of fortnite on his PlayStation. Although fortnite is really fun, I have not been as productive as I should be. For challenge 5 I am going to give up the PlayStation. I hope to be more productive during the day and get more sleep at night. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101bridget1030

Presentiation: (present/appreciation) The ability to appreciate a moment while it’s happening rather than after the fact. I’ve always found that I never realize the magnitude of a moment until after the moment has already passed. I think we get so caught up in what we’re doing and preparing for tomorrow that we forget to step back and appreciate the significance of what’s going on around us today. It would be nice to have a word to bring people out of this state we’re in just trying to make it through each day, vacant mindlessly looking toward what comes next and bring them back to enjoying what we’re doing right now. The video is right after I picked up Molly, my puppy, in July. Looking back now I realize that I should have appreciated her being a puppy more at the time. She’ll never be that size or that young ever again. The same can be said about her every passing day. #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101bridget1030

Successitivity: the idea that one must be positive, in order to succeed. I went home this weekend and talked to a couple friends about this idea and explained why I think this should be a word. In the video is my friend Jesus! He recently has been deciding what college he wants to go to and has also been struggling a bit with all the chaos of senior year ending. He talks about how he has found that being positive has helped him come to conclusions finally, like choosing his major and making his next step in life! The next picture is Abby. While at the gym Abby pushes herself and thinks positively about the outcome after her workout in order to succeed. She also talked to me about when she tried out for dance team freshman year of high school. She said how stressful it was and frightening! She made herself stick to it and stayed positive and she succeeded and became a part of the dance team. To me, success doesnt just come naturally. There have been many times in life that I have found myself discouraged or wanting to quit. I had a coach when I was on dance team that helped me realize that I wasnt positive, which was why I wasn’t achieving my goals. At that point, I became more positive and have been succeeding and achieving my goals ever since! #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge4

melopax (melo=song, pax=peace): this word describes long, peaceful drives with the windows down and the music up. drives that are melopax don’t necessarily have a destination and are very therapeutic. while on a melopax drive, one may solve a problem they have been having with a friend, come up with a new idea, or realize how beautiful the place that they are really is. this word allows us to describe what you are going to do, instead of making it sound like there is a specific destination for a long drive. when i am at home i go on melopax drives a lot, but have never had a specific word to tell my family where i am going. when i told my mom about this word i could use the next time i go home she was really glad that i kind of have an explanation for what im going to do instead of just saying “driving” #anth101 #anth101bridget1030 #anth101challenge4

Dormapse: the inability to fall asleep due to the brain’s constant thought || This word comes from the combination of the Spanish word “dormir” meaning “to sleep” and “synapse” as in a synapse of the brain. || I feel like a lot of people, myself included, suffer from lack of sleep; so now we have a word to describe it. #anth101challenge4 #anth101 #anth101bridget1030

Feariosity: when you have a fear, but are just curious enough to see what might happen that you face that fear. For example, Alynn was scared to be on the bridge at first, afraid it might break and she would fall and get hurt. However, after some convincing, she was able to gain some feariosity, face that fear and walk the bridge! #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101bridget1030

Bioabhorsive- the disdain held by humankind for their biosphere. More than a lack of sensible management of their environment and/or disregard for the consideration of other species, bioabhorsive behavior actively and willfully damages, degrades, and destroys elements of Earth's biosphere and It's life forms. Both conscious and unconscious bioabhorsive acts are a consent and endorsement of environmental crime. #anth101challenge4 #anth101bridget1030 To put it figuratively: to be bioabhorsive is to "shit where you eat". I came across this one, pretty heavy stuff. Yet, I decided to share it. Cheers!
