“God has a habit of working in mysterious ways, and while I was in the wilderness and without hope, I fumbled forward unknowingly. The World was a stumbling block but God offered a way out with redemption and salvation. I slipped and messed up many times, but something was at work within me” #anth101 #anth101challenge9 #anth101morgan130 @runnn_jennaay_ruuunnnnn

Challenge9: The Hero’s Journey! Road Through College Chapter 1-The In-between ,,,,,, There was a girl in her late twenties she had just graduated community college with her Associates degree. She lived in Overland Park, KS. It was Spring and she was set to go to Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS in the Fall. She was in a quiet place in her life waiting to move. She started looking for a summer job to help pass the time by...... #anth101morgan130 #anth101 #anth101challenge9

Captain America is a true hero story, and we could all take a little inspiration from Steve Rogers in our own hero stories. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge9

The picture with words was what I wrote during my trials and tribulations period. I no longer feel this way. I wrote this for the assignment. I wrote thinking about when I was in that place: GUILT Guilt filled my every bone, my every brain cell. Why did I do what I knew was wrong... again and again and again? Why did I get into the situation in the first place? I know others forgive me. I know God forgives me and loves me just the same. But I don't forgive me. I no longer love me. #anth101 #anth101challenge9 #anth101morgan130

The decision to follow Christ was the best choice I've ever made and completely changed my life for the better. I try to spend time in God's word daily to be better equipped to share my faith with others. #anth101 #anth101challenge9 #anth101morgan130

For challenge 8 i gave up electricity. The hardest part to me was not being able to use my car. I had to figure out a way to get to campus and how to get around with out it. Giving up lights in my house was kind of easy because i like the dark but it was so hard not to use the water as well. #anth101 #anthchallenge8

This is an old picture. But this is a picture of two of my friends I've made at K-State. Today I went to the International Fashion show and the dance party afterwards. There we talked about culture. Sid told me a lot about India I didn't know. He also talked about how safe it is there. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101morgan130

This is my absolute favorite pale pink Kate Spade purse that I’ve used ever since I got it for myself as to me, from me gift for Valentine’s Day 2 years ago. To track this product back to its origins, I started by googling where Kate Spade purses were made and produced, however no reputable sources had the answer. I then called their 24/7 customer service number & asked where their leather purses were made & the woman told me we would have to put in a research order, however you have to know your product order number from when you ordered it. I ordered mine so long ago that I didn’t have access to that information and found myself at a dead end. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #challenge8

For challenge 8, I decided to do the $2 a day with no electricity or running water. I truly didn’t realize how difficult this would be. In the morning, my roommates wanted to go to chick fil a to get coffee, so I had to say no and eat a banana, which I averages about 30 cents for it. I walked to my class and I had to use the public restroom in Justin Hall! I usually take water to my classes with me but I couldn’t because then I wouldn’t be able to eat dinner since the water bottle would cost me money!! I wasn’t able to go to the rec this day because gas was too expensive, so I did a workout in my dorm. Having the no electricity wasn’t too bad since I can use the sunlight from my windows, but when my phone and laptop started to die I had to limit the time I spent on them. For dinner I had a pack of ramen for about $1! I hung out in my room for the rest of the night because I had already used up most of my money and everything I wanted to do requires money! This challenge was very eye opening to me! I definitely take advantage of certain things like electricity and running water! I couldn’t imagine living off of $2 everyday. I really enjoyed this challenge since it showed me how some people actually have to live. I’m very grateful for the ability to have these resources right at our fingertips. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge8

For challenge 8, I chose to live on $2 a day without electricity or running water. I did this on Saturday and I can definitely tell you it wasn’t easy. When I had to use the restroom, I had to go down to the first floor public bathroom in my dorm hall, which wasn’t all that far away, but it was inconvenient to have to get dressed to walk down there. And when I ate in the derby dinning center, I made sure to be conscious of what I ate and to make it as little costly as possible. Living without electricity wasn’t all that bad because I have windows in my room so majority of the day I could see my room, but when the sun started to go down it was harder to see in my room. Doing this really made me realize that I take for granted these things in my life. I couldn’t imagine what life would be like if I didn’t have accessible running water or electricity or the money to buy adequate food to eat. It really opened my eyes to how some people live in the world and it made me more grateful and thankful for the life I’ve been blessed with. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101morgan130

for the alternate challenge for challenge 8, I decided to carry 5 gallons for one mile. now, I didn’t get very far (like, at all). but, this allowed me to think about the people that do this everyday, just so that they can survive. meanwhile, I have the ability to have clean water wherever I go, and doing this challenge has allowed me to recognize that and not take it for granted. #anth101challenge8 #anth101 #anth101morgan130

as a substitute for challenge 8, i went one day without the use of electricity or running water and lived off of $2. I did not expect it to be as hard as it was. Every time i turned around i was telling myself “no, you can’t do that either”. My eyes were opened at the struggle of the people who live this way every day, without the things we take for granted. Living off of $2 in this society is almost impossible, and I feel for the people who are forced to live that way. It is my responsibility to be educated and compassionate for the ones who need, and I have learned a valuable lesson. #anth101challenge8 #anth101 #anth101morgan130

For challenge 8 I decided to try to trace my Fitbit Alta back to a person. I bought it at Target for $129.00. I found out that the founders of Fitbit are Eric and James. The headquarters for Fitbit is in San Fransisco, California. So I looked on the website on their about me page and couldn't really find anything. I noticed in tiny letters on the band of my Fitbit that it said made in China. So I decided to go to google to search what my Fitbit was made of. I found out that the band was made of elastomer, the clasps were made of stainless steel and that there is a hard plastics layer, a small lithium polymer battery, and a vibration buzzer motor. I decided to try and trace the elastomer band since I knew that it was made in China. I was found on google that the founders of Fitbit, Eric and James spent 3 months in Asia looking for companies to make the bands. I found a few companies in China that make these elastomer bands. One was called Zencro Industrial Co. and the other was called Xiamen Hualian Electronics Inc. I found out that this company was in the Fujian province in China and that this was near the Guizhou Province, which is one of the poorest provinces in China. I emailed both of these companies but have not received a response. I have definitely realized how very hard this is to do! It is crazy how all this stuff is so hidden and hard to find. I wish I could've talked to a real person but even just through the searching I felt more connected. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge8

Challenge 8: Humans of My Stuff: The item that I chose to chase through the commodity chain for its “true cost” is Panda All Natural Raspberry Licorice because it is my favorite candy. I bought this candy from Manhattan Marketplace Hy-Vee. It got to the place of sale, Hy-Vee, from its distribution centers in Cherokee and Chariton both in Iowa. I found a web site on the bag, http://www.orklacs.fi/en/corporate-information.html. This is the producer of this candy. The site is very informative of its products and open to the public. “Continuous efforts to produce products of high quality and excellent taste as well as products that are easy to prepare and use, form the basis for our success. The brand itself stands for high quality and safety” Corporate information. There is contact available but due to time change and operating hours I was not able to contact anybody directly. If I had talked to the Orkla Company I am sure they would have repeated their statement from their website,” Orkla Confectionery & Snacks Finland Ab is a responsible producer of delicacies. We will take the environment, as well as social and economical responsibilities into account in its operation. Important parts of responsible operation are for example product safety, quality, environmental effects and the well-being of personnel.We set high standards to quality and product safety, and it is essential to our operation that the expectations of consumers are met and that the Finnish retailers see us as a reliable partner. The basis for our quality and environmental work are laws and regulations as well as the expectations of the society, stakeholders and customers. Based on these, we aim to continuously improve our operations.” I was not able to find out where the company got its raw materials from or how much this product cost the people and environment along its journey. Although through the companies statements on its website they are an advocate for the environment and protecting it. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #humansofourstuff #anth101morgan130

Today I walked slightly over a mile with my dog and with over five gallons of water strapped to my shoulders. I don’t own a bucket that can hold over five gallons of water so I had to get creative. I took two backpacks and filled them up. Altogether I had four water bottles (16.9 oz each), one 64 oz jug, and four more one gallon jugs, which made a total of 5.36 gallons. The total weighed about 41lbs. The walk itself wasn’t terrible since the weather was just about perfect for this challenge. Instead of my arms carrying all of the weight, I found that it was easier for my body to do most of the work. This challenge was a great way to gain perspective on how other people live there lives and how much work is needed to get basic everyday necessities like water. The worst part was taking the backpacks off because that’s when I really noticed how sore I was. Plus I think my dog really enjoyed the exercise! #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge8

I decided to do the physical challenge of walking a mile with 5 gallons of water. I filled up my 17 gallon recycle bin with the 5 gallons and didn't think it looked too bad; boy was I wrong. First off, I couldn't figure out a comfortable carrying position. If I held it by the handles, it banged against my knees; if I put it on my head, it wouldn't balance; if I held it around the middle, it would slip. Finally I decided to carry it as depicted. The first 100 meters or so weren't that bad but then my arms and back begin to burn like non other. I set the bucket down and took a quick break. I then had even more trouble picking the bucket back up because my arms felt like jello and the water was sloshing around so much that the outside of the tub was wet and slippery. When I was about halfway done (sweating (I had to remove my coat) and panting) I accidentally dropped the tub. My water went everywhere and I was completely exhausted (rip my family in need back home). I have gained so much respect for the people who have to do this daily not even getting clean and sanitary water throughout this challenge. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101morgan130

The item I chose is the Texas instrument TI-30X calculator. The first thing I did was try to find information on it by searching the web. I googled where it came from and had no luck there. Then I went to their main website and was only able to find their main facility base which is in Dallas, Texas. Then I looked up the company’s number and called them. They seemed not to know anything about it and I felt like I was giving more information about myself than they were to me. I did get a call days later from someone who worked at their main facility and she told me they have to factories. One in the Philippines and one in China. She also mentioned that in the back of every calculator it tells which factory it comes out of and mine says China. That was all the information I could find on my calculator. #anth101 #anthchallenge8 #anth101morgan130

I met Frannie (left) in Panama City Beach. I learned so much about this women like her love for animals and chemistry. How she values the little things in life and tries to see the best in everyone. She finds great value in self reflection and learning to express emotion. We talked about how both of us have somewhat of a similarity in not understanding relationships and love but still trying our best. Frannie also has a prison pen pal from high school that got started from a project and she’s kept up with him ever since. Frannie values the power of voice and learning to communicate and always love to meet people’s needs to let them know she cares. Frannie was such a joy to meet and talk to over Spring Break and we continue to stay in contact now. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101morgan130

This week I got the opportunity to sit down & talk with my partner for challenge 7, Lauren Anderson! Lauren and I have very similar personalities, however we differ in the ways we were brought up. Lauren has a twin and always had to share growing up, but I was basically an only child because all of my siblings are way older than I am. Lauren got the opportunity to try a lot of different activities, but I was only put into sports. We both were brought up in the Catholic Church, however Lauren still practices Catholicism and I do not. Lauren is very blunt like I am & we both found that it can get us into trouble sometimes. I really enjoyed getting to know Lauren & I can’t wait for her to be the vet to my future pets! #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge7

for my other challenge, i was stuck home in kansas city sick, so I made do and chose to sit down with a cousin, who poses as my other. we have been different our whole lives, but we grew up together, so that never mattered. she is a very talented artist and is going to KU, my rival school, for illustration and animation. she loves animals of all kinds, cats and dogs, horses, chickens, alpacas, ducks, lizards, and so on. i like animals, as in i love dogs and tolerate most other things (from a distance if they slither). she loves the outdoors and wearing skirts and dresses and i like the indoors and wearing jeans and sweats. we go to different kinds of churches and do different kinds of things on a daily basis. the best part about our differences is that neither of us are wrong. i learned a lot about her today, and i learned a lot about differences in people. life is so much better when different is good. #anth101challenge7 #anth101morgan130 #anth101

For challenge 7 we had to talk to somebody in our class and discover differences about each other and just kind of understand why they are the person they are! I talked to @drmcewen17 in my class and discovered a lot about her that I didn’t previously know! Dani shared a lot about how much her nephew means to her and how grateful she is for her family. I am also very grateful for my family, but I don’t have a nephew or a niece, so it was really interesting to get to listen to Dani talk so highly of her nephew. The love she has and expresses for him is a familial bond but it’s almost different, and I think that’s really amazing. When we both talked about our perfect days, they consisted of napping and spending time with friends and I liked this because sometimes I feel like I nap too much, but to know that napping was a part of her perfect day made me feel better about my napping problem haha. And, I also thought it was interesting to have spending time with friends as being apart of our perfect days because it just shows that we both value friendships in our lives. Dani said that her love language was words of affirmation, which coincidentally enough, is mine also. To me this shows that we both value what people say to us and at the same time we are almost careful about what we say to other people in the sense that we want them to feel important too. I learned that, while I am not very emotional, Dani is, which is a very important quality to have. I feel like people now try to hide their emotions more than they try to show them, and I think when somebody is emotional it is better for their mental health. It shows they don’t hold back and they are going to tell you how they feel honestly almost all of the time. I also learned that Dani isn’t afraid of confrontation. I admire this a lot about her because I feel like if I have to confront somebody, I wait until the last possible minute to do it, while Dani would just nip it in the bud from the get-go. I like that because there’s no beating around the bush with her. Talking to Dani was really awesome because I really got to know her and understand her values and how she was raised. #anth101 #anth101challenge7

I met with Zane in Hale to discuss some things we have in common and how we differ. Zane and I both enjoy old Nickelodeon. We also agree on genres of movies. I’m glad to say that both of us think pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza. We differ when it comes to sports. He is more entertained by it then I. When it comes to politics, he’s middle ground and I’m on a side. Lastly, Zane grew up in the same area and I moved around. Zane’s perfect day would involve being alone on a beach and enjoying a beverage. And lastly, the last time Zane cried was during an episode of This Is Us. (Relatable!) #anthchallenge7 #anth101 #anth101morgan130

this is sarah! we had a wonderful deep conversation at the lovely arrow coffee co. during our conversation I had learned that our backgrounds were very similar & i learned that I was able to relate to a lot of the things that had happened & were happening in Sarah’s life. Sarah is a very strong person, describing herself as blunt, super open, and cares about the environment deeply. one of the things that stuck with me was how she was grateful that people can connect with one another just by being human. she thinks that it’s a beautiful part of the human experience. overall, I left this conversation feeling very refreshed and I felt like we could talk about anything- and I really enjoyed hearing her opinions and the fact that we could connect over small similarities!! #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101morgan130

Meet Alexa. We're in the same Anthropology recitation and we met early on a friday to get deep and share personal things with each other. I told her about how I have a hard time making friends with people and she told me about how she struggles with going with the flow. I told her I like being super silly and she said she likes to be there for people and listen to her friends' issues to help give them advice. She and I both want to be able to grow in our faith and lead our lives better than they are being led now; more christ like. We both agreed that we are more moderate than our parents and that we wish people didn't stigmatize Christianity as much as it is. We both felt glad to have taken Anthropology to open our minds up to so many things, and I'm especially glad to have gotten to know Alexa and have gained another friend. #anth101morgan130 #anth101 #anth101challenge7

Sara and I are from the same anthropology recitation, we met up and talked about many different things. From religion to school, stress to family and friends and more. I definitely learned a lot about her! We went through all the questions and even got pretty personal and deep in our conversation. We agreed on SO many things, more than I thought we would! One of the many things we had in common was that, we are both Christians and want to live our lives according to God's word but we agreed on how difficult that actually is! One difference we have is she has lived in several different towns and states and I have lived in one town my entire life. Also we both have stress, but what we stress about is different. Overall I learned a lot and really enjoyed talking to Sara! 🙂 #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge7

Regan and I met up at Arrow to have some coffee and find out a little bit more about each other. We discussed not only our differences, but our similarities as well. Throughout our conversation I learned that Regan is a very strong individual and openly expresses her love for Christ and others. She told me a bit about her background, where she grew up, how it has impacted her, and what she hopes to accomplish in the future. Regan knows that Christ will always be present in her life and that he will be there to guide her through any situation she might find herself in. Regan's willingness to share her story and listen to what I had to say was truly heartwarming. This experience has allowed me reflect on my religious views as a whole and to maybe rethink how I go about my day to day life. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge7

Others Encounter: This challenge was incredibly interesting as we were paired with people who were most different from us. Many say things like, "Even though we were so different we found we had many similarities". My partner and I had hardly anything in common though and it was pretty cool to talk to someone who was so different from me. Some of our biggest differences were our families. I'm incredibly close to my family where my partner is not and Christianity is a huge part of my life where my partner is not religious. We briefly talked about the genesis of the world and what comes after death and it was intriguing to hear her opinion. One thing we did have in common was that we were both worried we didn't completely know what we were going to do with our majors and it was good to talk about that with her. Overall it was a very best experience. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101morgan130

Challenge 7- Other Encounters- At the beginning of this challenge I was a little reluctant to even think about who I have been. I did not even want to go through my life story to answer any thing about myself to anybody. In class we did a series of questions to get to know each other and open up about ourselves. We had an experience to see who we had common dislikes and likes with. From there we chose our partners. I sat down privately and answered my Big questions. Then we met in person to have a Big talk! We went through things like our perfect day, our strengths and weaknesses, love’s role in our life, and our goals for our future. I found out that even though we look very similar we are very different. She has a very Christian based life style and grew up in a very strict home. Whereas I am not a faith based person and I grew up in a very flexible home life where I made most of my own decisions. One of her things was that the last thing she wound do before she died would be to preach the gospel to more of her friends. It made me believe that maybe I would also want to investigate the nature a God and how he has touched so many lives. I believed I was changed in this way through this experience and feel like my life will be better because of it. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101morgan130

This is Audrey Beaudet, my partner for challenge 7! Audrey and I differ mostly in the way we were brought up. She was always put into sports as a kid because her dad was into sports where I had the option to choose what type of activities I could do as a kid. She is the youngest child in her family and her siblings are much older than her. I am a twin and have a smaller family. However, we are similar in that we both are very blunt with people and don’t like to beat around the push. Our favorite animal is the elephant. Audrey is very easy to talk to and easy to relate to! #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101morgan130

Joe and I were almost always on opposite sides of the classroom in recitation when we were doing agree vs. disagree. He doesn't really think life has meaning, but that it would be great if it did. He believes you can make meaning to your life by having good relationships with people and by trying to leave existence better than you found it. I'm a Christian and believe there is meaning to life and that there are absolute truths. We both believe in being respectful to people and being kind to everyone. Joe is a very nice guy and even though we have different core values we were still able to talk to each other comfortably. 😊 #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101morgan130

I met with Erin from my recitation class!!!! We talked a lot about how we were raised and how we both love our families greatly. We both love Friday’s, naps and working out!!!! One thing that was drastically different, is that Erin mentioned that she rarely cries and is not every emotional, while I am very emotional and cry to express my feelings about anything. Erin is very down to earth, and I enjoyed talking to her about these topics 😊 #anth101morgan130 #anth101 #anth101challenge7

So here’s my reflection on my 28 day challenge of a gratitude journal: I loved this. It gave me a really positive outlook on life. There were days that I wasn’t my best self and days that was more negative, and being able to write what made that day great helped me to not be stuck in my negative thoughts. I enjoyed this a lot because it also helped me remember what happened that day. Sometimes all of the day blur together, but being able to sit down and write bout each day helped to remind me of what happened that day. Another thing I love about journaling every day was that it gave me quite ti for myself. If I was getting antsy with my homework, I could just pull out my gratitude journal and journal a little and start to reflect on my day. I’m hoping that I’ll continue with this journal because it does make me feel more positive and does make me look at certain situations with a more positive outlook! I’m grateful for this challenge and everything it’s taught me. #anth101morgan130 #anth101 #anth101challenge3

For my 28-day challenge, I thought it would be a great idea to push myself physically and learn how to do a handstand. I didn’t really have an initial plan of how I was going to teach myself to do a handstand. My first few days of trying to hold myself up were an epic fail. I started by putting my feet up and propping myself against the wall so that I could get a better idea of what it would feel like to hold myself up with only my arms. After using the wall as balance for a couple of days, I asked one of my friends to help me out. It was apparent that I wasn’t going to make any progress if I stayed against the wall. I asked my friend if he could balance my legs while I held myself up. I slowly started getting better at this and kind of learned to cart-wheel into the position. Although, I had to make sure I didn’t give myself too much momentum because otherwise I would find myself face-to-face with the concrete floor in my room. Once I got the hang of learning how to position my body so that it would stay balanced on my own, I would try to do everything by myself with someone spotting me just in case. Eventually, I would learn to hold it longer and longer each time I practiced. Throughout this entire process, my arms and back began to ache. Before this challenge, I didn’t have much upper body strength anymore since I didn’t swim or do any physical activity that would grow these muscles. Learning how to do something new reminded me what it was like to begin at square one. To force yourself to do something even though you don’t want to. It emphasized the importance of practice and repetition. You can’t do something once or a few times and hope to come out with great results. Today, I still struggle to hold my handstand for a very long time, but 28 days ago I could hardly hold up myself against a wall. It just goes to show that hard work and dedication will show through. Looking back, I think I could’ve put in more effort or outside training in learning how to do a handstand. #anth101morgan130 #anth101 #anth101challenge3

For my 28 day challenge, i made time in my schedule to do something i enjoy; read. I read self care and emotional poetry books and reflected on them in a personal journal. Journaling was a way for me to reflect on my emotions and stay in tune with myself. A challenge i had in this 28 Days was making time. Time management is a big issue. I always put other things before myself. This month, as i challenge to put myself first, i felt great but i would like to find a more healthy balance between that and myself. My favorite part of the challenge was finding all different places to read. I read in the library, taking a bath, in the window, and at parks. It was great to find nice places in and out of my apartment to read. Overall my favorite book to read was the Kite Runner. I read that book awhile ago, but is for sure one of my favorites. As i read it, i liked the feeling of getting back to something i really enjoy. The challenge was great. i believe that i will continue to make time in my life to read. #anth101morgan130 #anthchallenge3 #anth101

Week 1: I was motivated and ready to hit the gym every single day! I would usually pick a cardio machine and go for an hour. I also started to try incorporating healthy diet tips into my life. I would drink tons of water and avoid foods that I knew were really processed. I would say that this was a successful week for the challenge because it was something so new and something I really wanted to do for myself and for my body. Week 2: I struggled to find time to exercise every single day. Between work and school sometimes I just felt like I didn’t have the time to exercise and it gave me some anxiety knowing that I would have to miss a work out. Week two was also the week that I realized how hard it is to eat healthy in college, especially when you live in a facility that make your food for you (dorms, honors houses, Greek houses, etc). Week 3: This week I really tried to change up my exercising so I would start to see physical changes in my body. I asked one of my friends who does weight lifting to help me and let’s just say she kicked my butt in the gym. I found that after every work out I felt so satisfied and after a few days of lifting weights I felt so much better about myself. I did not see huge changes in one week, but I was amazed at what lifting did for my mental health and how it affected the way I view myself. I would say this was the week that I ate the most unhealthy because after my workout I would be STARVING and I would just grab whatever I could and stuff my face with it. Week 4: Week four I got really sick with the stomach flu and it threw my 28 day challenge way out of whack. I could barely get out of bed for three days let alone exercise and I also could not eat anything at all for a couple days. I had to slowly incorporate Gatorade and soup into my diet and then I started out eating some gentle foods such as bananas and toast. Getting sick made this challenge impossible to do for the last week, unfortunately. Overall, this challenge was really tough and it taught me a lot about myself and I’m glad I got the opportunity to do it and reflect on my experiences in this way! #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #challenge3

As you have seen from my two previous #28daychallenge posts, I have been learning to play the guitar. I have been taking lessons weekly and practicing whenever I can make time. Although I’m far from being as proficient as I would like to be, my transitions are getting faster & smoother and I’m starting to get a grasp on the basics. Whenever I have tried to teach myself in the past, I have quickly given up because it felt like I never made real progress. This challenge has shown me how helpful setting a goal for a certain time period can be in improving a skill because it makes results feel more attainable. It’s been exciting to see improvement over these 28 days and I look forward to continuing to learn and push myself with the guitar. #anth101 #anth10128daychallenge #anth101morgan130

For my 28 day challenge I wanted to get my middle splits! I can do both left and right splits, thanks to years of childhood gymnastics. The middle splits is something I could never achieve though. I am happy to say that the stretches (posted as an update) have helped! I am excited about the progress I have made in these 28 days. When I started my 28 day challenge I knew it was going to be difficult, and take work! I believe though that nothing worth doing is going to be easy! When I attempted my middle splits on the first day and took that first picture I have to say, I was worried. I was pretty far away from actually doing the splits haha! I knew though that I wasn't going to give up! Quitting is not something I do!! I was and still am determined to achieve this! Some parts of this challenge started out hard and got easier. Some parts just remained difficult. One thing I found difficult throughout this challenge was actually finding the time or remembering to do all the stretches I had intended. I began writing myself notes to remember to do them! As I got into a habit it became like second nature. Some thing that remained difficult for the whole 28 days was the actual "doing the splits" part. Also I didn't trust myself enough to try and get all the way to the ground. I was always afraid that I would hurt myself in some way. Even though I had difficult moments I was able to keep myself going! I had to do a lot of self motivating and being positive! 🙂 Through this whole thing I learned a lot. I learned that 28 days of doing something gets you into a habit and that I will probably continue this challenge until I achieve my goal! I don't like to quit! I also learned that even if I didn't achieve the middle splits fully I have become more flexible and have started stretching everyday! Another I learned was that keeping positive makes difficult things easier! Finally, I learned that trusting yourself is essential to achieving anything. I think with a little more self trust I could've gotten the middle splits all the way in these 28 days. (First pic is from the first day. Last two pics from today!) #anth101morgan130 #anth101 #anth101challenge3

For my get uncomfortable I decided to attend Philosophy Lab. Philosophy lab is an event my philosophy teacher hosts every Tuesday night in hopes of giving students an opportunity to further their understanding and interest of philosophy. Typically, it’s where graduate students discuss controversial topics in society and form various arguments, but undergraduates are also welcome to join according to my professor. When I went, I was first surprised to see someone I actually knew besides my professor. There was one other person from my moral philosophy class and around three other undergraduate students. Altogether there were around fifteen people who attended. I met some pretty amazing people and discussed human tendencies and how our language limits our ability to fully capture an objects essence. All in all, my assumptions weren’t too far off, however, I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would and even got some homework done while attending. I definitely plan on going back next week. To engage in such philosophical conversations, was in a way, relieving. There were no right or wrong answers, and the discussion stretched my mind and allowed me to open up to so much more. Society often makes the assumption that those who are smarter than us will automatically judge us and look down on our opinions. In my case, where I was the only freshman in the room, I was guilty of making this assumption without any evidence. And that’s why I was so scared to go in the first place. If I would have known that there was going to be intrigued as much as I was, or known that I would’ve met these amazing people then I would’ve started going at the beginning of the semester. It was truly a thought provoking experience. #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge6 #anth101

For my “Get Uncomfortable” challenge, I had decided to go to a Black Student Union meeting with the hopes of learning more about how I can be an ally to black students on campus and as a whole. However, whenever we left for the meeting we could not find the room where the meeting was, and it had gotten cancelled for a different event there was in the Union. So, that led us with two options: give up on the challenge or find something else that was equally challenging. So, we found the event that the BSU’s meeting was cancelled for and we decided to go. It was titled “Side eye Seminar: Identifying and Defining Everyday Sexism” & the speaker was Amanda Seales from the HBO show “Insecure.” Now, I was not expecting to be as challenged in this setting because being a woman, sexism (not that men can’t experience sexism- it’s magnified much more for women, imo) is a topic that I’m familiar with- because of the experiences that I’ve had in my life dealing with sexism. I found that the seminar challenged me in many different ways- and I think it hit many points that I hadn’t ever thought of. Also for record, it was by far the most diverse room I’ve ever seen on campus. For instance, Amanda directly addressed the back of the room (that’s where the bulk of the white people were & where I happened to be sitting, haha) because black people were being way more interactive than the rest of the audience and she wanted to bring that our attention- which I thought was interesting. The content challenged me in different ways, like thinking as sexism not just happening to the gender- but rather the races that are in gender. All people experience sexism differently, and her discussion highlighted that for me. I guess what was the most uncomfortable experience for me was the fact that I had to deal with my ignorance coming to this event trying to better myself- yes, that is good, but to better yourself, sometimes you must let others speak for themselves that do not have as much privilege. Overall, this was a good experience- really funny with a side of uncomfy! 🙂 #anth101challenge6 #anth101 #anth101morgan130

28 day challenge reflection: This challenge definitely challenged me to do something I’ve always wanted to try but never had the strength to do it. I started off very hesitant and it was very hard not eating meat. As the weeks continues on it got easier and I felt good about myself. I started picking healthier foods to eat because I couldn’t eat meat. I realized that meat is literally in almost everything we eat. Because I gave up meat I started doing other things that made me feel better like running more and eating salads instead of tacos or fries. I am now very conscious of what I eat and try to go for healthier options to better myself. I am glad I gave up meat and want to continue this in the future after the challenge is over. I grew up eating meat with almost every meal so it will be hard when I go home. I will say I do miss eating meat like hamburgers but I just have to remind myself that it comes from an animal and it unhealthy for my body. Also since I’m going to be a veterinarian I probably shouldn’t be eating ‘animals’. This challenge has put a better perspective on what I put in my body and how it affects me. It has definitely changed my outlook on food and my mindset about being healthy. #anth101 #anth101challenge3 #28daychallenge #anth101morgan130

My 28 day challenge. For my 28-day challenge I had chosen to exercise every day. The reason I picked it was because to be honest, I’m an unhealthy individual- I never eat fruits & veggies, and before this challenge I didn’t ever make time to exercise. Some things I didn’t foresee before the challenge was the time constraints around my schedule and how sore it would make me, lol. It was difficult to stick to it on the daily, however, it taught me so many things. Some of these things include: sticking to a weekly schedule, working harder at setting goals and achieving goals, as well as making myself comfortable with the uncomfortable. For instance, the first week was by far the most difficult, because I had never had to fit working out into my schedule because it wasn’t a priority. However, the more days that had passed it was so much easier to do because it felt like I had to work out every day the more I implemented it into my schedule- and I wanted to work out. I slowly looked forward to the time out of the day where I worked out- it was a stress reliever in many ways. It allowed me to forget about the homework I had to do later and the day-to-day conflicts that came my way. As well as this, I found that my discipline had grown a lot more into doing things that I normally never want to do (i.e working out, haha). I didn’t fear what people thought of me if I had used a piece of equipment wrongly, and ultimately, I think my comfortability with working out in public has grown exponentially. I won’t lie though, I missed quite a few days out of this challenge, and I kinda wish that I would have taken it more seriously, because I loved the feeling I had gotten after working out and funnily enough the “workout glow” you get after is real (at least in my case). Overall, I recommend trying something new for 28 days- it’s worth the experience and you learn a ton about yourself!

I took on the challenge of writing a poem every day for 28 days. I did not know when I started this challenge how tough it would really be. 28 days, 28 poems, infinite possibilities. Although I struggled to keep up with it daily, I managed to crank out more poems than I ever thought I could in this period of time. It was hard and many times I just did not want to do it, but I kept on. - In the end I am so thankful I chose this for my challenge. I’ve always loved poetry and wanted to get better at it but never got around to sitting down and really writing any. This challenge gave me the initiative to really try and improve this skill and build on it. After 28 days, I’ve seen a significant improvement in not only my writing skills, but my creativity and ability to push myself to do things that are hard. This challenge showed me what it is to really have drive and consistency. #anth101morgan130 #anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101challenge3reflection

i know i know, two posts in one day, but for my Uncomfortable Challenge, I applied to be a part of a program on campus that I was really interested in but wasn't sure if i would make it. I was very stressed preparing for this and had a hard time coming up with preparations for it, but overall I was proud of myself and my outcome. Although I was not selected to join, I was still glad to have gone through it. #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge6 #anth101

Challenge 3: 28 Day Challenge: Reflection: Journaling is what I did differently for 28 days or to be precise to try something new. I learned that it is more difficult to put everything you do, feel, and thing on paper. I started out feeling very systematic when writing. I just was listing everything off that occurred each day. By the end of the first week I felt very mad that it was so uncomfortable to do every day. So I decided to add challenges to my challenge. I opted for adding feelings about the activities that I pursued every day. I felt a little more inspired to do other challenges for myself based on the events of my life at the time. I moved on to body figure and how I felt about myself physically. I decided to be proactive about what I found which was that I am fat and lazy. I started counting my calories and decided to make more changes about myself. I started to cut calories and eat more nutrient dense foods. At the end I have decided that I am a creature of habit I like structure and organization. I felt like this challenge help give me more of that. I made five updates throughout this challenge. #anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101morgan130

For challenge six I went to an Asian Oriental Market and spent the weekend trying out different foods that were suggested by the store owners. Usually for food I am always focused on getting food that I know well that I will enjoy. These were just some of the food and drinks I got but seeing how different cultures enjoy different tastes was fun to explore. I learned that I really enjoyed many of the things I tried. I was really glad to have opened myself up to something that I would usually never try. #anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101morgan130

for my challenge 6, I’m going to get uncomfortable by going to a few of the rec classes they offer. this will put me out of my comfort zone because I’m not good and hip hop and to mix it with cardio and to do it with a bunch of people I don’t know makes me nervous. I’ve also never done cycling before, and I assume it’s more rigorous than riding your bike so that makes me nervous too. I like to perform well when participating in an activity, so we’ll see how this goes. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge6 #partone

For challenge 6, I went to a group event on campus known as Stumo, short for Student Mobilization. It is a Christian based group & going makes me uncomfortable because I am not a religious person.

as my unthing experiment comes to a close, i reflect back on the last 3 days and how different they felt. with less time on social media and more time working and living, i saw significant differences. i slept better, did more, accomplished more, and socialized face to face more. this experience showed me how disconnected i can be using something that’s meant to connect me. from now on i will monitor how much i use these things, as too much can discourage me from doing things that actually make me feel good. these pictures are a good example, i went out in nature on a beautiful day and took pictures with a real camera and spent time with my friends instead of sitting on my computer or phone. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge5reflection

For Challenge 5 I gave up shampoo/conditioner for a week. This challenge was very difficult for me because I love having clean hair and feeling fully clean when I take a shower. I feel like if it was necessary I would just continue on without shampoo and conditioner, because although it is a great thing that we have as a technology I don’t feel it’s completely necessary. What I’ve gained by not using it is an appreciation for the little things that we have that help with hygiene and health and make the environment we live in safer. After this experience I feel as though I really understand just how privileged I am even with such a small thing even when sometimes I feel like I’m not that well off that such a small thing, some people still do not have in their daily lives. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101morgan130

For my #unthing challenge, I gave up social media for a couple days this week. This is not my first time giving up social media for a length of time, but I always find it beneficial and reflective. I have become more aware lately of what an addiction I have to social media, especially in times of boredom. I also notice that the times I crave it most is when I’m alone in a public space and feel the urge to be on my phone so as not to look lonely or awkward. I wish our age group was better about being able to just ~be~ in a situation, even if alone, and take in one’s surroundings or even carry a boo for times of boredom. I have recently started listening to NPR in the mornings instead of looking at social media and I have found it to be a much more beneficial use of my time. I start my days feeling more connected and educated about the world around me, instead of comparing my life to the lives of others. I am going to make an effort going forward to be more self-aware about my social media use and try to turn my energy to more productive things. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101morgan130

For challenge 5 I gave up social media. This included Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat. When I first deleted all of these, I didn’t seem to notice that big of a difference. At work I have to go hours without my phone so it wasn’t a big deal. However, I started doing something pretty interesting in the times that I would typically reach for my phone & hop on social media. I started going to apps I hardly ever use & trying to use them as replacements. I looked at the Canvas app waaay more this week (lol). The biggest way I think social media has changed us is something I noticed while I was at dinner with a group of my friends. I had my phone in my purse the whole time because I didn’t have anything to do on it, but all of my friends were engaged in their phones 75% of the whole time we were at dinner. This was something I didn’t noticed until I consciously had kept mine away. Social media & just technology in general has really taken away the value we put in being together & making IN PERSON connections. I think people struggle a lot more with interpersonal communication since social media has become so popular & I think people use social media as a communicational crutch to try to make up for their face to face communicational deficiencies. By the end of this challenge I was very happy to download my social media back, not because I feel like I need it to communicate, but because it’s something I like to use in my down time. However, it took me putting down my phone to realize how much other people seem to depend on it. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #challenge5

This week I gave us all silverware. It was definitely more difficult than I expected it to be. I didn't try to avoid certain foods, I just ate what I would normally eat. I used my hands to eat everything, or came up with innovative new ways to eat things. Like using a granola bar to eat my yogurt. One of the first things I learned was that you get strange looks in the dining hall when you eat scrambled eggs with your hands... Anyway. One thing I missed was the convenience of just being able to grab the silverware and eat. I am not adapted to eating everything with my hands. I know that in different cultures all over the world silverware is uncommon or even unknown! I feel like throughout this week I have gained a certain type of connection and insight. I felt like I had a connection with cultures that don't use silverware. Every time I would eat I would think about other people and cultures. I gained insight into their lives. I also felt as if I gained some of their skills, and by the end of the week I had kind of adapted to eating everything with my hands. Eating without silverware has made me think about an question why we use silverware and when that became the norm? Why did we adapt to eating with silverware and other places haven't? Doing this has taught me a lot and also made me question things. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101morgan130

This is my unthing challenge. I've given up shaving for about a month now. As you can see my leg hair is fairly long. This challenge has helped me question society's standards.

For challenge 5, I gave up using heat on my hair everyday. While I was thinking about what to give up, I realized that almost everyday I’m always using some sort of heat on my hair. So, I gave up heat in order to kind of give my hair a break, and I really enjoyed it because I wasn’t worried about how I was going to do my hair that day. I was able to just let it be. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge5

28 day challenge: As you know I’m going vegetarian. The first week was definitely hard trying to find things I could eat without meat in it. After that first week it immediately got easier. I feel like I’m making healthier and smarter choices to eat since there is no meat in it. I try to not substitute things in like a veggie burger. I tend to just stick to salads, pasta, and sandwiches without meat. I feel like I’m opening my eyes to newer things. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge3

For the unthing experiment I gave up Netflix! It actually wasn’t that hard and I found I had more time to do more productive things. I even slept more which made me less grumpy in the morning and more awake in class. I used to watch Netflix right after class or before I went to bed, but giving it up made me less stressed because I had more time to study and do homework. It made me realize how addicted I used to be to Netflix. I also realized how focused I was on Netflix and when someone would call I’d ignore it or would zone out my roommate. Now I feel more engaged with people and they agree that’s it’s helped because we can actually have a conversation now! #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101morgan130

UnThing Challenge Reflection Day 5: These past five days have definitely changed my perspective on the use of everyday transportation. I’ve walked in some extremely cold weather to places I wouldn’t even dare walk to on a nice day. I’ve realized also how much of an impact motorized vehicles can have on the environment and learned that I am often too dependent on my car. This was definitely noticeable during the first few days of the challenge when my legs became sore from all of the walking I wasn’t used to. Ultimately, this challenge enabled me to reflect on the pros and cons of transportation. I also realized that if I would’ve done this challenge in a bigger city, it probably wouldn’t have been as difficult due to the close proximity of everything. It just goes to prove that we really do shape our surroundings and our surroundings shape us. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge5

for 5 days I gave up social media! it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. but, I did notice that I didn’t check my phone as much throughout the day & I didn’t procrastinate on my homework- which was awesome. I think without social media we would be much more efficient on getting things done, and we would be satisfied with the world around us more. so often we think that our lives only have value for the next “post” or we begin to judge our own lives based on what we post on social media. well, when you delete social media, you don’t feel that way! it’s awesome! I totally recommend giving up social media if you can’t focus on school work or you just wanna experience life without the pressures of social media 👍🏻 #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #unthingreflection #anth101morgan130

Challenge 5 “The UnThing Experiment” For this challenge I chose to give up all hair styling tools. So the technology I forfeited was a blow-dryer, hair straightener, curling iron, and hair spray. I went 48 hours without doing anything to my hair with the exception of washing it. I went to school and shopping looking like this. Within the first day it was apparent to me how much I needed my hair done to function. I felt like I lost my sense of self. Looking at people looking at me I felt haggard, tired, ugly, dull, poor, and lazy. These technologies have a major impact on today’s society. Fixing your hair shows self-respect, self-expression, personality, class, social status, and money. Society without hair technology would change everything for people today. We would not have the standards that we have for jobs, schools, politics, family and friendships. All of our esthetic norms would be different. This is all of my insight gained over 48 hours without hair styling technology. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101morgan130

for my unthing experiment, i chose to give up twitter and facebook, two things that take up a lot of my time. my hope is that cutting these things out, even just for a few days, may help me find more motivation to get work done and communicate more face to face. #anth101morgan130 #anth101 #anth101challenge5

UnThing Challenge Day 2: Another day with no bike or form of transportation. I’ve started to notice that leaving earlier for class is the way to go. It takes a lot longer to walk compared to when I biked everywhere. I also noticed that I spent more time on campus today than I usually do. It ended up being a smart idea to stay on campus between classes instead of walking back and forth. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge5

For 48hrs, I gave up my hair straightener. I miss not being able to straighten out lines from pony tails the most. I didn’t realize how often i did that until now. I gained a lot of time from not using it. Washing and straightening my curly hairy is about a two hour process. I haven’t changed much, i do desire to wear my hair straight, but i got compliments on the curls and will try to embrace it more. I’m actually going to wear my curls all weekend. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101morgan130

UnThing Experiment Day 1: I’ve decided to give up transportation devices (cars, bikes, etc.) for at least five days. Today was not the best day to start the experiment as the streets and sidewalks were covered with ice. Luckily, I live close to campus so walking wasn’t terrible. I got offered a ride by one of my friends after a late night in the practice room, but I had to turn it down. I’ve also learned that my body isn’t accustomed to being outside in 18 degree weather. I also picked the most comfortable shoes to wear today, since I knew I’d be walking quite a bit. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge5

For #anth101challenge5 I am giving up online shopping!!! I hope this helps me save money, and stay focused in class more! 🤗 #anth101 #anth101morgan130 after I did this challenge for a week I was able to take better notes in class. I felt that I was actually understanding the content rather than just hearing it. I was engaging in the lecture more. Also I saved a lot of money 🙂

My word for #challenge4 is “frienection,” which describes the feeling one experiences when they encounter a person they feel they would be very good friends with if only they knew them better. A “friend crush.” When I asked my friends if this was a familiar concept, they each responded immediately with an example of someone they know whom they desire to be closer with in a platonic way, but do not know how to initiate this connection. #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101morgan130

Amicly- taken from the Italian word for friend amico and the word family to describe an individual or individuals who are so close to you that they are basically family. Anytime you are around them you feel the same feelings you would when with family. #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101morgan130

My word is motivacity. It is a combination of the words tenacity & motivation. The definition is an adjective that means the state of being where you are so exhausted that you want to give up but you find the motivation & tenacity within yourself to keep going. I feel this way a lot when I’m running or doing cardio at the gym or sometimes even when I’m doing homework. I used this word at work when I was describing a workout I had just done & how I could barely finish it. My coworkers stopped me in the middle of my story & I explained what the word I had invented meant & they were like, “Oh my god, I’ve totally felt that way before!” #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #challenge4

Seranis: the feeling when you go back home (to where you grew up) after being away for a while and nothing feels the same. Everything is pretty unfamiliar, but familiar at the same time. Like when you leave for college and then go back home on a break and you know nothing’s changed, but everything feels different—like you’re home but you don’t quite feel home because you’ve given another place the name “home”. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge4

Yarg is the word I came up with. Saying it outloud in a kind of yelling way helps release the emotions you are internalizing. It can mean different emotions depending on the way you say it. My friends and I usually use it jokingly. #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101morgan130

unlplacent: the feeling that you are not particularly happy or unhappy, living in a static lifestyle || for my wordweaving challenge i created a word that i can relate to personally. a word that describes that feeling when you get so into the habits of every day, that you forget to make the best of things. this helped me become more conscious of the opportunities i have every day to live a full life. don’t let yourself become unplacent, live fantastically. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge4

As I take on my 28 day challenge I have found that I really missed exercising on a regular basis. I used to be an avid workout-er & I really think it makes me feel better day to day. For the eating healthier part of my challenge, well... Let’s just say I’ve been cheating a lot. Because I live in a sorority house I find that it’s really hard to control how healthy I am eating because my food is made for me & if I miss meal times I have to eat out since I don’t have access to a kitchen at the house. Hopefully I can improve in the days to come! #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #28daychallenge #update

Growvercoming: the ability to overcome difficulties while growing as a person. Now a days I feel as if people complain a lot more about difficulties.

Cultalmazo: When you travel and love another culture so much that you leave a piece of your soul when you go. The Cult- comes from the word culture. alma is Spanish for Soul. The -azo is the ending of the Spanish word pedazo which means piece. I have personally experienced this when I left Costa Rica (pictured above). I felt like a piece of my soul was left with my host family and the kids we helped while there! Trying to actually use this word was interesting, most people just thought it was a Spanish word that they weren't familiar with. I think the world would be a better place if people could experience this feeling. Then they would understand how to love a culture different from their own. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge4

Working on my #28daychallenge by practicing chords and transitioning between them. I’m working on songs I’m familiar with that have simple chord progressions so I can work on transitioning smoothly from one chord to the next. It’s much harder than it might seem but I’m seeing small progress each day I practice. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge3
