My manifesto helped me to understand who I am and how this class and the challenges we’ve done have helped me step out of my comfort zone. I feel like I’ve become more well-rounded and more in tune with the people around me and what they might be going through! #anth101challenge10 #anth101 #anth101morgan130

Talking to strangers, i learned that values and priorities change through life. The person i talked to was working hard to get home to her son. Quality time spend with him was a value. In the fieldwork challenge, i saw how we do births in America and really got to thinking about how medicine and birth works in other places. The 28 day challenge really challenged me to reflect on myself. This challenge made me get back to doing something i loved. Word weaving was sooo hard for me. But it was nice to see how we make up words and how some of them just stick around. The unthing was also hard. I never felt that natural black hair was beautiful until recently. Embracing my curls is a forever thing now. For getting uncomfortable, i really embraced a side of the LGBTQ community. Turns out that i love to watch drag and really enjoy gay culture. The other encounter proved to me that pineapple does not go on pizza 😂 but on a serious note, it was nice to meet and talk to an introvert. I gave up my car and electricity for humans and stuff. I didn’t realize how much planning it would take to get to campus when i didn’t have a car. And lastly, THE BEST CHALLENGE, the hero story. Pictured is Linda. She is one of my mentees and is amazing. I’m glad my call to adventure lead me to volunteer with the Verde clovers. I couldn’t ask for a better group of kids to work with. #anth101 #anthchallenge10 #anth101morgan130

For challenge 8 I looked up the cost of a skateboard that I bought online. The person who sold it to me was the skate shop online. The board was shipped from China to the shop. The boards are usually not put together until they are in the shop but all the items like the trucks and wheels are made in China. The board itself is usually pressed in shop and then put with a custom design. I couldn’t find the true cost but I’m sure with labor and cost of moving the board and then designing the board is upwards of 500 dollars. Boards use a lot of wood which has an effect on the trees they use to make the board and then the metal used for trucks and the rubber for wheels. For the second part of the time I went to talk to my friend from China who I forgot to get a picture with but we discussed how the United States and China use Chinese people for labor to get things done cheaper. Honestly it was amazing to learn about just how easily we have items at our disposal but never think about the true costs to other people or the environment to get these goods. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101morgan130

My ultimate hero form in myself is much like my tattoo in the black bear. They survive even through adverse trials and tests. Reminding me much of myself learning about the tests of learning to be an adult through my adoption or learning about myself and the life that I want to live and where I want to go because of where I’ve been. This challenge was difficult because of going back through past emotions but seeing the light in the future of what is in store. #anth101 #anth101challenge9 #anth101morgan130

While I may not know what my passion is right now, I can’t wait to know! In the mean time, I’m going to cherish every moment with my friends and push myself out of my comfort zone in order to experience new things! #anth101 #anth101challenge9 #anth101morgan130

“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

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

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

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

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 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

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 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” 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!

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. Groups like these often make me feel guilty & bad about myself & I avoid putting myself in these types of environments. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #challenge6

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. Why do women feel like they have to shave their legs? We shouldn't be worried about other people looking at our leg hair and thinking we're gross. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101morgan130

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My topic is Obsession. Obsession is a big part in Nacirema culture. You can't simply like something, you have to be fully invested in it. My first picture is of a sports "emag". More specifically of a "llabteksab" "emag". The Nacirema are obsessed with sports and competition. There are two teams and one always wins. These are simply "semag", but players sometimes get injured during them. Occasionally "sthgif" will break out either from the players or people watching them. The players watching them will sometimes yell loudly and rudely at the players. There is a huge energy in the air. My second picture is of obsession about the "rac". "Srac" are loved by the Nacirema people. They get the people from one place to another at such high speeds! A lot of the Nacirema people live away form home or their "sboj", but are still able to get to them. "Srac" are also a way to tell people's class or standard of living. Although I'm told a lot of people who have expensive "srac" don't actually have that much money and are in "tbed". My third picture is about women's obsession to be beautiful. Nacirema's beauty standards are really strange. The women hold a weird handle with sharp blades on the end, called a "rozar". It cuts the hair off. They call this "gnivahs". They "evahs" their leg hair and armpit hair off. This doesn't make sense to me because hair naturally grows on your body. Also men aren't expected to "evahs" their armpits or legs. Although some of them "evahs" their facial hair. I don't get why being smooth and hairless is beautiful. My last picture is the Nacirema's obsession with relaxation. They have these big and fairly flat rectangles they call "VT's" or "noisivelet". Sometimes it's used to educate people about what's going on in the world. This is very interesting and seems fairly good to me. However, they mostly use it for entertainment. They call this "xilften" or "nozama". There are images that have people and buildings in color and sounds coming out from it. Some of the Nacirema spend hours staring at these rectangles for hours every day. #anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101morgan130 #nacirema

The Nacirema call this event the repus lwob: Picture One: There’s this event that the locals call the repus lwob and people travel many hours to go to what they call hctaw seitrap to watch these two smaet compete against each other in a llabtoof emag. The repus lwob occurs every year and people watch these two smaet compete and the people cheer for one maet or the other even if they don’t like either maet. Picture Two: For the repus lwob people who don’t attend the emag go to these hctaw seitarp and they watch these smaet compete against each other to whom a yhport. They watch the emag on what’s called a noisivelet and they are able to watch the emag without actually being there. Picture Three: At the hctaw seitrap, whoever hosts them, makes a lot of food for people to eat. It’s set out in what they call a teffub elyts and people just fill up their plates and then go eat all together in the gnivil moor while watching the emag on the noisivelet. Picture Four: It’s a very distinct event and it’s interesting to see how people interact during the repus lwob. The people watch the noisivelet and they cheer and yell for the maet they want to win. The repus lwob seems to bring people from the surrounding seitic to one place to watch llabtoof and eat lots of food. It was really cool to get to attend this Nacirema event. I really enjoyed getting to watch the repus lwob at the hctaw ytrap! #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge2

Photo 1: The Nacirema practice a concept known as msitoirtap (when taken too far it is called msilanoitan). This concept is based on love for their dnalemoh. One way they demonstrate this is through gnihtolc. They wear symbols of things that show their love, like selgae. Photo 2: The Nacirema like to share this msitoirtap with everyone. They are very proud of their dnalemoh and express it to anyone who will listen. Msitoirtap is something that is passed on from generation to generation. It is taught to The Nacirema nerdlihc. This is to help maintain the ytinu of The Nacirema. This photo is a metaphor of sharing the msitoirtap by letting the lantern float out to be seen by many. Photo 3: A big part of the msitoirtap for the Nacirema is the galf. The galf is made up of srats and sepirts in red, white, and blue. The Nacirema honor the galf in many ways. When it is present a lot of the times the Nacirema stand and place their hands over their hearts, showing their tcepser. Then they recite this chant known as eht egdelp fo ecnaigella. This is another thing that keeps ytinu and ecaep among the Nacirema. It brings them together. Photo 4: This is another way the Nacirema show their tcepser for the galf. They display is outside of their homes. This is very common and is used to show others that the people who live in the house love the yrtnuoc and are Nacirema people. Photo 5: This practice of msitoirtap revolves around the concept of modeerf. The Nacirema show their modeerf by having a big celebration in the summer called eht htruof fo yluj. The Nacirema get together with friends and family and blow things up. The things they blow up are called skrowerif and they represent the modeerf of the Nacirema. #anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101morgan130

Photo1: the narcirema go to college to get an education. They need a place where they can study, so they go to this place called the yrarbil. It’s a huge building with five levels and has many uses for people. Most narcirema come here on the weekend to do homework. Photo 2: here are some of the narcirema studying at the yrarbil. They have some things with them to help them study like koobs or computers. Most spend a few hours here, so they bring snacks. If not, there is a bagel place on the bottom floor to eat at. Photo 3: inside every yrarbil are koobs which people read and can learn new things from for their classes the koobs are on bookshelves and in this particular yrarbil the bookshelves actually move. You can press the arrows on them and they move in that direction. Photo 4: in the yrarbil, there is a special room called the taerg moor. In there everyone has to be silent. There are people who monitor the room to make sure everyone is being quiet and respectful. Some even say this room looks like it’s from the Harry Potter movie because it’s so majestic and tall. #anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101morgan130

Photo 1) The Nacirema have an obsession with massive serotsrepus such as this Tramlaw. Serotsrepus are a good example of the Naceriman values of convenience and instant gratification. These serotsrepus contain many goods for all areas of life, many of which were made in far off lands by workers who are paid little for the their labor. 2) The Nacerima are a people obsessed with having endless choices. Pictured is an astounding amount of choices of a substance known as “mug.” The Nacirema chew this substance to improve their breath when they do not have time to clean their teeth more properly. It is often chewed after eating on a “etad” so as not to offend the “gnitad” partner with one’s food breath. 3) The Nacerima are a people of generally little skill when it comes to crafting their own tools, so they go to Tramlaw for tools made by others like the “srossics” shown in this picture. Srossics are an important staple in a Nacerima household because so many things they purchase are packaged in plastic and are difficult for the weak Nacerima to open on their own. 4) The Nacerima have a variety of strange cultural celebrations, one of the strangest being “Senitnelav.” This holiday is marked by bright, clashing colors and “traeh” shapes. It is a holiday in which the Nacerima spend excess money on extravagant gifts in order to prove their love to their current partner. Some Nacerima make demands for specific gifts from their romantic partner on this holiday and others seek out a partner or “etad” just for this day so they will not feel left out of the celebration. This holiday is a clear example of the Nacerima tendency to use capitalism to express love and intimacy. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge2 #nacerima

Nacirema’s enjoy expressing themselves through many things, some of these things include triwing where ideas are taken down to conceptualize into deeper meaning and understanding or to share with other members of the Nacirema. Sicum is another way of expressing themselves through rhythm and beat which can be accompanied by nacde sometimes and create a bond between Nacirema. Another one is wrading, which is when ideas are formed from an idea expressed on a piece of canvas or any other type of area where someone can express themselves to share their ideas of the surroundings of their life. Yet another way is through tootas which is when a Nacirema expresses feeling for something they really care about or another Nacirema through ink on the skin, that helps share a story through imagery. The last one is grotphopahy which is when Nacirema use images to express ideas or thoughts. #anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101morgan130

The nacirema calls these animals “step” 1: this first animal is called a “tac.” A lot of people don’t like them but others cherish them. They often play with other small animals and chase after them. 2: this second animal is a “drazil.” These animals live in small clear boxes. They are fed another animal called a “tekcirc.” They do not like to be held and they need a red lamp to live. 3: this animal is called a “god.” They love this animal more than any other one. A “god” is considered the most amazing creature on earth. They are very loving. They love to play with little “sllab” and “syot.” The Naciremas spend thousands on these animals. Most of them would do anything for their “god.” #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge2

1. The Nacirema culture is a culture that is obsessed with appearance and a concept called ‘ytuaeb’. They are so obsessed with ytuaeb that the people frequently visit different types of places that specialize in hair, skin, nails, etc. These places are referred to as a ‘nolas’. This particular nolas specializes in skin. 2. Inside the nolas known as ‘Sun Tan City’ they have special machines that people get in. The machines have bulbs that emit rays that mimic rays that the sun produce. These rays have a strange effect on the skin of the Nacirema. This special machine and its rays turn the skin an orangish brown color that is appealing to some Nacirema. 3. Before a person can enter the special skin color changing machine, they must first put on this special ‘noitol’. The noitol helps the skin of the Nacirema change color to the orangish brown color they desire. The machine also requires one to wear protective ‘raeweye’. The raeweye helps the rays the machine emits from damaging the eyes of the Nacirema. 4. Once in the machine with the special noitol and raeweye, the person in the machine must lay in there for several minutes for the skin to change color. The Nacirema must visit this type of nolas several times before they will see results of their skin changing to the ideal color. #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #challenge3

1.) the nacirema are obsessed with this bean juice called “eeffoc”, they put all sorts of flavors in it to make it taste a certain way their palette loves most. sometimes the eeffoc loses the natural dark color it has entirely and turns to a caramel-blonde color. sometimes, the eeffoc has cool random designs on it too! • 2.) as well as this, the nacirema also love to update their “sutats” anytime they drink this eeffoc drink by taking a picture of the eeffoc or they take “seifles” with the bean juice. • 3.) you can find the bean juice, eeffoc at a eeffoc pohs where the nacirema frequent. at this particular eeffoc pohs - the nacirema can be seen learning all sorts of different things, sometimes they learn new segaugnal in order to expand their brains past their own nacirema culture. • 4.) as well as learning new seguagnal, a lot of the nacirema at this specific eeffoc pohs read this koob called the “elbib.” the elbib has a lot of different covers and thicknesses- which confuses me because everyone is reading the same koob. #anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101morgan130

1. Naciremas most commonly give birth in a latipsoh (hospital). A medicine man and a team of esruns (nurses) help bring life into the world. Naciremas believe in direct skin to skin contact after birth so baby is placed on moms chest ASAP. 2. The medicine man takes the baby to a station to be enimaxed (examined). A strange black ink is applied to the feet of the baby and positioned on a piece of paper. 3. New born baby is placed in a repaid (diaper), which is non reusable, dressed in a eiseno (onesie), and wrapped in a blanket. 4. Baby and Mom spend a couple days in the hospital. esruns help Mom learn to breastfeed. When Mom is comfortable and baby is well, family is allowed into the secured area to visit. #anth101morgan130 #anthchallenge2 #anth101 #nacirema

This is Ryan, he was stationed in Korea over the last year in the Army. I asked him about his favorite part was about Korea and he said “The best part is the hospitality and the temples up in the mountains where they gave us free rice cakes.” He talked about the true beauty of Korea and how sometimes that can be overlooked. #anth101 #anth101challenge1 #anth101morgan130

This is Sanjay. He is originally from Trinidad and Tobago. I asked him how he ended up in Manhattan & he told me about his journey since leaving his home country. Sanjay explained that there were few job opportunities in Trinidad and he had the opportunity to move to the U.S. He now works at K-State’s rec center at night. “If you ever have the opportunity to better your life, take it” #anth101 #anth101morgan130 #challenge1

I met Alyssa at the K-state vs Georgia basketball game on Saturday! We got to talking and I learned she’s majoring in civil engineering and wants to “work for a company that goes to developing countries and fixes their infrastructure to give them access to clean water”. It was really cool to get to know Alyssa because it made me realize that there’s always something more to a person than you think. This goes to show that meeting new people really opens up your eyes to things you didn’t realize before. #anth101morgan130 #anth101challenge1 #anth101

"There's nothing in this world that can discourage me or keep me down, because I take a look at my mom and she's all the inspiration I need to remember to stay happy." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Today at Olive Garden, I met Maryanne, who just moved to MHK (from San Diego California) at the end of 2017. Her mother, Myrna Filion, is a quadriplegic, and has stage 4 terminal cancer, so her whole family came to help her out. Maryanne was a teacher and is now working to get her Master's through KSU so she can start teaching in the fall and support her family. Maryanne was so kind and sweet as she brought us to our table, and I couldn't help but ask what made her so positive. When she told me her story, I was moved to tears. I am so glad to have met Maryanne and anyone who goes to Olive Garden in Manhattan needs to meet this amazing hostess. #anth101 #anth101challenge1 #anth101morgan130

I had plans to meet with Darcie, BUT, I had no clue who she was... She got my number through a friend and we were going to have coffee and talk about me joining a Bible study she is in. I went to Arrow expecting to meet only one stranger... The other person in the picture is Aaron. Aaron joined in our conversation saying, "sorry I have been listening to you guys the whole time." "I'm just really a social person!" I learned a lot about both of them. Darcie has traveled to Southeast Asia for mission work and Aaron is writing a book! I was so worried about this challenge, being introverted, but then the world presented me with these two awesome people and this opportunity!! #anth101 #anth101challenge1 #anth101morgan130

“You know what? I am really passionate about one thing. It’s love.” Laura and I then connected on our faith in Christ and how that is both of our definition of true love- His love outflows into our lives when we follow Him. Loved this experience and getting to know a little bit of Laura’s life story! #anth101 #anth101challenge1 #anth101morgan130
