My hero story is about overcoming my fear of dealing with angry customers at my old job as a cashier and what I learned from my first experience with an impatient customer who would not cooperate no matter what. #anth101 #anth101challenge9 #anth101jack

#anth101 #anth101jack #anth101challenge8 Step 1 What is it? It is a bottle of Aquafina water I bought from the vending machine in the engineering building. Aquafina is the largest bottle manufacturer in the United States, holding 13.4% of the market according to Wikipedia. How did it get to the place of sale? (Distribution) The water bottles are transported by semi distribution to their respective store or location of sale in the usual case. Production Aquafina is owned by Pepsico. Aquafina has 40 purification plants in the United States and Canada where they produce the water. I could not find any information at all about where the water bottle was manufactured unfortunately. In the news recently, http://www.collective-evolution.com/2016/01/25/pepsico-finally-comes-clean-and-admits-the-truth-about-their-bottled-water/, is that Aquafina just purifies standard tap water. This means that it’s not from the moutains or any special source. Where do the raw materials come from? The main raw materials for water bottles are plastics. Therefore, they are made in a manufacturing plant. The main material PET, made from petroleum hydrocarbons. After digging a little deeper, I discovered that 90% of the cost of making bottled water comes from making the bottle itself. It takes abot ¼ of the bottle filled with oil (as equivalency) to turn a water bottle from oil into plastic. There are then 29 billion bottles purchased every year in the US. So that is abot 17 million barrels of crude oil needed per year to facilitate the bottled water industry. That oil comes from many different places including different continents. https://mightynest.com/articles/making-a-plastic-water-bottle CONTINUED IN COMMENTS

Challange 8 - Humans of my stuff I have got large mala bead, buddhists prayer necklace. My comes from Nepal. It was sold by old women on the street. I believe It is main source of income for her. They often offer this necklace. It is such a poor country. It has been made by her. So It has been made in Nepal. I also have small mala at home and I bought this one in Czech Republic and they import it from asia. I think she just buy "wood", special seeds, and string and make necklace. Producer and seller was one person in this case. People from Nepal plant lot of these special trees because It is often the largest income of village. They just harvest those seeds from trees. It costed like few bucks. It seems to be expensive compared to living environment there. They all live in huts. I decided to try walk with bucket of water for a mile. I have splashed water a lot. It was harder than I thought. Especially to hold it without handle and I had to take a pause few times. I feel sorry for people who have to walk like this every day. That mile seemed to be endless. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101jack

Challenge 5 - Unthing Reflection Not using vehicles was sometimes unpleasant. It is hard without bus to school because I do not feel like walking early in the morning or in bad weather. That is why I missed comfort and luxury of vehicles. It requires quite different time management because everything is far here. You have to calculate time differently. But good thing about walking is that you can rely on yourself. Bus sometimes does not arrive on time or at all. I was walking about two weeks and I felt healthier. I met different people on my walks and I had time to look around. View buildings and houses on my way or squirrels everywhere. People have no contact with this when they travel in vehicles. So that luxury of going by bus takes our experiences, off course you can meet people in bus, but cannot feel nature and sorroundings. I felt happy when was good weather and I walked. I will definitely try to walk more when is good weather. I think It makes people bit happier. Maybe I saw people traveling by bus more pragmatic and that they cannot enjoy these small things. Insight is that these small things can make your day a bit better when you can afford spend little more time on our way to somewhere. Vehicles made because we are lazy to walk make us even lazier because It is so easy to get used to it. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101jack

For challenge 8 I chose my prom dress. You see dresses everywhere on prom weekend and you don’t even know that they could cover the map. My prom dress made in China, and I got it from Camille la vie, they ship them from the factory they are produced and then arrive in stores. So many different aspect of the production of this dress are incorporated into one product so that this dress can be as beautiful as it is. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #humansofourstuff #anth101jack

Challenge 8: I went for more of a broad item. I own a lot of clothes from Maurices so I decided to use that as the chain to research. I attempted to contact them, but I just got an automated response. Maurice’s began in Minnesota, and has only expanded across the US and to Canada. After some digging, I figured out that most of their clothes are made in Chine, India and Bangladesh. Since I was unable to really connect with them, I decided to attempt to live for a day with only $2 and no electricity or running water. Boy was this not fun. I decided to have my roommate wake me up that morning because I could not use my phone as an alarm. Thankfully we weren’t going anywhere special so it was a huge deal to not be able to shower. But it was gross. Not using electricity was very hard. It is a habit for me to wake up and flip on the kitchen light, but I had to catch myself. No running water was also not fun. You don’t realize how much you take advantage of running water and electricity until you don’t have access to it. #anth101jack #anth101 #anth101challenge8

For challenge 8, I decided to look at the supply chain of North Face. Because this brand is so popular, especially in America, I thought it would be interesting to see where their products actually come from. Immediately when researching anything related to North Face, they make it known that they are committed to making sure their suppliers and manufacturers meet their social, environmental, and economical standards. They are partnered with a company called VF, which is trying to bring positive change to developing countries and create a strong relationship with their manufacturing partners. I couldn’t get in contact with anybody from North Face, but from what I found most of their products are manufactured in Vietnam. Something else I found interesting was that they use a material called “polartec fleece” which is made of 50% recycled materials. Since I couldn’t get a hold of anyone at North Face, I decided to live off $2 a day for the second part of the challenge. This was a lot more difficult than I expected. I was on campus for a lot of this day so using up electricity wasn’t a big problem. I did have to put more thought into if I actually needed the things I was thinking about purchasing throughout the day. I had to utilize the resources around me to where I wouldn’t need to spend over $2. When it came to eating I just used the food that I already had at my apartment. However finding foods that didn’t need electricity was more challenging than I thought. I defiantly felt more restricted throughout the day and it really put more things into perspective when it comes to what these workers in developing countries go through on a daily basis. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101jack

My iPhone 7 was sold to me by Apple. They receive the phones from assembly companies Foxconn and Pegatron which are both based in Taiwan. Foxconn assembles the majority of Apples iPhones in Shenzen, China. Foxconn has factories in Thailand, Malaysia, The Czech Republic, South Korea, Singapore, and the Philippines. The assembly companies get the materials from other people who actually create them and then ship them to the assemblers to be put together. The materials are from places like mud pit mines on Indonesia's Bangka Island, which are a source of tin for Apple. Smelter is mined by children in Cerro Rico, Gold from Peru, and copper from Chile. 90% of “rare earth minerals, naturally occurring solids whose combination comprises essential iPhone parts, are mined… in Mongolia”. The costs include: 1. Destroying animal habitats where the minerals are mined from. 2. Contributing to deforestation and pollution of the environment. 3. Less than 1% of rare minerals are recycled; therefore, the rare earth minerals used in iPhones are thrown away after the phone’s life has expired. 4. Child labor I couldn’t get a hold of anyone who contributed to the production or assembly of my phone, instead I talked to my friend Jose about Chile, where he grew up. He said that Chile has a very large gap between the rich and the poor communities. The wealthy show off their wealth through cars and clothes, and unlike America they do not really have big fancy houses. We talked about how they had water purifier but every now and then they would have times where the water got bad. Like America, in Chile they have commodity fetishism and don’t know the chain of where their stuff comes from. I enjoy hearing Jose’s stories about Chile because it is interesting hear about other cultures and to learn about how other people around the world live. #anth101 #anth101challenge8 #anth101jack

I met Jessica as we actually had something in common, cheering on kstate at a sports bar and I figured she would be a good person to talk about as my challenge 7. We both came to realize that our views of religion were different I know I'm from a Catholic family. Jessica told me she didn't know what she believed and honestly it was hard for me to explain to her what my view of religion was. She said she never had a leader in religion and never viewed it as important but she mentioned always missing something as a way of guidance in her life. She didn't try convincing me to her side and I didn't either but she said she would love to find a way to express that spot she once lost in her life. It was a good experience to meet someone I had something in common with and something I could also learn from them. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101jack

For my challenge 7, I️ decided to talk to someone that was very different from me and her name was Summer. Summer believes that guns are a liability and that they create more problems than they are worth. On the other side of the spectrum, I️ have grown up around guns all of my life and believe that they are fun and safe when used properly. However, we can both agree that laws should be stricter in order to avoid more mass shootings and innocent people dying. When asked what her perfect day would look like she said she would love to hang out with her friends and eat good food. Even though our perspectives differ on some things we can relate and agree upon others. Summer hopes to have a positive impact on society when she graduates college and plans to become and administrator at a large corporation. During our conversation I️ discovered we share a mutual love of food and share similar interests such as golf and comedy movies. #anth101 #anth101jack #anth101challenge7

#anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101jack Graham and I are in a lot of ways best friends. However, I disagree with him more than anyone else. We had a conversation based on our differences of opinion on an argument we had earlier after we had used some of the starter questions. Basically part of our conversation is always attacking the other person. Most of the time it’s appreciated, rarely it’s not. When it’s not, usually we are not very good at knowing it. This past time I kept pestering Graham when he wanted me to stop. In what I thought was funny, I kept messing with him even though he told me to stop. I apologized. It had definitely been something we had been in disagreement about, so it was good too apologize for even though it wasn’t too big of a deal. I think it’s always good to apologize when you’re wrong, even for small things.

For challenge 7 I talked with McKenzie in my recitation about abortion. I am Pro-Life, she is Pro-Choice. We definitely had a huge difference of opinions, but we differed about a lot of other things too. I am very religious, she is not. I am an only child, she has siblings. My family is very much Pro-Choice and I’m an outcast, her family is pretty 50/50. Though I may not agree with her about this, I definitely see her point of view. This experience has opened my eyes to a new light. It did not change my opinion, I am still very much Pro-Life but I understand the other side now. #anth101challenge7 #anth101 #anth101jack

For challenge 7, I had a great conversation with a close friend of mine who lives on my floor. Her name is Cara, she is a freshman here at K-state studying to be an optometrist, she has wanted to be an optometrist since the sixth grade and has always wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. She is most grateful for her family and all the great opportunities she has been given throughout her life. Life Story: Born and raised in Garden City, KS with one older brother and one younger one. Her parents are still together and were great role models when it came to raising her. She grew up in a nice neighborhood and went to a nice catholic elementary school. There were many fellow students and neighbors that were her age and she is still best friends with some of them to this day. She played many sports growing up including gymnastics, softball, and joined the cross country and track team in high school where she attended Garden City High School. Something we have in common is that we both always knew we wanted to go to K-state. I believe she is a smart, kind, and amazing person who will touch many lives and change them for the better in the near future. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101jack

I am a Lutheran and I love learning about my religion as well as others. Sitting down with one of my catholic friends showed me that I had been a little misinformed about the catholic faith. We had a really nice talked and shared our beliefs to one another. It was amazing to have a informative talk like this when often times people fight about religion instead. I have a lot of respect for this friend for him to tell me how and why he believes certain things. We don’t always agree on certain things but this activity has helped me to look past those things and to look at things that we do have in common instead. Not everyone is the same and if we were then life would be so boring. It is important to learn from others and step in their shoes to experience difference, experience differently, and experience more. I think it is important for people to look at similarities that bring us together instead of the differences that may tear us apart. I have learned to not make assumptions but to learn as much as I can before deciding how I feel about something. Even though my friend is catholic, he still tries to bring others to Christ and shares God’s word just like I do. I respect the fact that we can have a mature conversation about this and I look forward to having many more with him. #anth101challenge7 #anth101jack #anth101

For my challenge 7, I decided to have a conversation with my mom. I choose her because we have very similar personalities, however we differ so much when it comes to things like politics. I started out by asking her how she started to form her political opinions. She said her job as being a social worker influenced her a lot. She got more into politics this way. This made a lot of sense to me as to why she views things a certain way. We then got into more current issues such as the debate over gun control and other current events. Surprisingly, we came to a lot of agreements on these topics. Going into the conversation, I thought we were going to disagree on a lot of things. This challenge made me realize how beneficial it is to just have a mature conversation with someone. Everyone has different opinions because of our backgrounds and different influences we have. Taking the time to be open minded and respectful of someone else’s opinion really made me appreciate and understand the conversation more. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101jack

Person I chose is my flatmate. He studies engineering major, so he loves computers. We live close to REC but he never goes there. I consider him to be very different from me. He often sits at his room and plays some for me stupid pc games. Above that we have kind of different opinions on political situation. And he is so careless about everything. I found few things we have in common: We love cars, we love traveling, we love movies and tv shows, we love dark humor. His perfect day is: wake up on some beatiful place, probably beach, eat breakfast and "chill" all day. Dont have to do anything and just enjoy day with friends. He is most grateful for his parents and sibling. He wants to just enjoy his free time. He simply enjoys different things than I do. He works as a driver and driving makes him happy. So I dont thing he ever did anything unpleasant. Otherwise he would uses my time differently. I think he will find out and regret this some day, soon. But we get along with each other pretty well. We dont talk about incommon things. I am convinced that he cares only about his family. #anth101 #anth101challenge7 #anth101jack

#anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101jack To get uncomfortable I’ve tried to talk to more people, talk about what I want to talk about, and really get into more social situations. Specifically, at bars. This weekend was FPD, so I had all day to talk with people and spend time at the bars. I feel like I made a lot less progress this week than I made the week before. The previous week, I had fun talking to people and talking about what I wanted to. This week, and specifically on FPD I just didn’t feel like talking to too many people. Maybe being around a lot of drunk people isn’t very entertaining for me.

#anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101jack My 28 day challenge went overall very well. I focused on eating and exercise. My focus for eating was minimizing the amount I ate out. I completely cut out fast food, and ended up going to higher quality restaurants only when invited by friends to do so. I will list my reflections below. For exercise, I focused on running (sprints and 1-2 mile distances) for lower body strength and weightlifting for my upper body strength.

My get uncomfortable challenge was a new experience of a culture. Not having tried a lot of food that is created in a Japanese steak house was a view of how this culture eats. I asked the waiter about why they create a large scene of people catching food in their mouth( which was the very uncomfortable part for me) and why they sit at the table with no shoes and their knees bent. With experiencing this other view I was able to see the difference of my average dinner and a Japanese cultured dinner. #anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101jack

Bar social situations are somewhat uncomfortable for me. It’s not that I’m nervous talking to people, but I’m a thinker first. At bars, people dance almost without reason and say the first thing that comes to their minds. They sing their anthems and throw one back with the boys. They do without thinking. That’s a problem for me. I analyze before I do with almost everything. At bars, it’s really hard to do that. People are mostly about living in the moment. Whenever I go to bars, I usually only talk to people I know or am introduced to. I’ve become very apathetic towards meeting new people mainly because it just hasn’t been very exciting to me. Most of the social traditions behind meeting people are boring - “hi, how are you”, “what’s your major”. It’s easy for every conversation to be exactly the same, and completely boring. To get uncomfortable, I wanted to challenge myself to go up to some people I’ve never met in social situations and learn about them while talking about things that are exciting to me. That means as little stupid conversation starters as possible. I met some girls and guys I’d never talked to before and really just talked about what I wanted to. I also found most people seemed excited that someone just didn’t come up to them with the same boring conversation starters. I found it made me more engaged, vulnerable, and happier. Normal conversations are normally boring. People like talking about their interests, not just the fluffy stuff. I think after pushing myself to go up and talk to people I hadn’t met before, I feel more interested in meeting new people while putting my best foot forward. #anth101 #anth101jack #anth101challenge6

For this challenge, I am referring to the strangest, most stressful experience I’ve ever had. I attended an event along with hundreds of other girls to essentially try to join a sorority I liked. I grew up in a town of 500 in population, so being surrounded by so many other women my age was shocking. During this event, I spoke with dozens of women in rapid succession. The frantic conservations left my head spinning. To say I was ‘uncomfortable’ would be an understatement. Somehow, after all this stress, hundreds of women find sororities that they truly think they belong in. I didn’t have a similar experience, but I was able to learn exactly how sororities work. The ladies occasionally perform cult-like ceremonies and recite promises that I can’t quite understand. There are so many requirements and fines to pay. I don’t know how sixty plus women manage to live peacefully in one house together. It is all very impressive. However, everything that being in a sorority entails goes against every aspect of my personality in a social way. I’m uncomfortable being around so many other women because most of the girls I grew up with were judge-mental and self-centered, so I had a close group of two best friends for many years. Since having this experience, I realize that my natural seclusion from other girls was constructed by my small-town childhood. I didn’t have many options for friends. It seems common sense and second nature for me to be almost completely socially independent. I now see that not all women my age are unfriendly or difficult to get along with when stuck together for long periods of time. Sororities do have their inner quarrels, but strong sisterhoods are built and life-long friends are made, which I didn’t previously think was possible. #anth101 #anth101jack #anth101challenge6

On Friday I met a guy through mutual friends and ended up going with him and a friend to a frat party. I normally wouldn’t go to a frat party because I pretty much only listen to country music which is not really played at frat parties and I don’t know the songs they play which makes it awkward for me. Also being hit on by random drunk guys makes me uncomfortable. The environment isnt my typical go to place to be but I wanted to have fun after being stuck in the dorms all week. I ended up meeting a couple people as well as seeing an old childhood friend who happened to be in that frat too. Even though I got red jungle juice spilled on my white shirt, It ended up being a good time. #anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101jack

#anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101Jack I was in this building, where I attended worship, to feel uncomfortably. My host family took me there. Obviously It is not regular church, they do their worships at home reverend's house. Lot of people arrived. We drove there approximately 20 minutes. They were preaching bible and singing songs. I think it is very unusual to have worship in somebody's house.

For my challenge 6 I decided to go to an Asian market which is something I’ve never done before. I wasn’t really sure what to expect either. It was really interesting, I saw so many different types of foods and ingredients that I had never heard of before. Overall it was a cool experience to go look around a grocery store I would never normally go to. #anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101jack

For my “getting uncomfortable”, I went to a different church outside of my denomination. I went to St. Paul’s. It was a good experience but it was definitely different from what I’m used to. I’m glad I went for the experience, but I will probably stick with my normal church. It was a beautiful service, but wasn’t my cup of tea. #anth101jack #anth101 #anth101challenge6

For challenge 6, I had to do something that I wouldn’t usually do, so I decided to listen my roommate’s favorite genre of music, Christian heavy metal. I have never listened or even heard of it before so it was a very interesting experience when I did. It sounded exactly how I thought it would, loud and upbeat with the lyrics screaming about Jesus Christ. I am a catholic so I personally didn’t find it offensive or anything, just a little strange compared to what I usually listen to (country music). #anth101 #anth101challenge6 #anth101jack

For 48 hours I gave up using silverware. I often found people asking me several questions at the dinner table and a looks of uncertainty. It was harder than I though because my typical meal soon became difficult for me to maintain. These tools that we have created for ourselves towards advancing technologies has created a functioning way of life for us to maintain a diet. I found myself more hungry at the ends of my meals. I easily learned that by using this technology we have advanced ourselves toward being able to efficiently consume our meals. We created these tool but yet they create us by not being able to eat some foods without silverware. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101jack

For #anth101challenge5 I decided to give up chairs for 48 hours. I missed being comfortable while I worked at my desk. Instead, I stood with my laptop resting on my half-lofted bed. In doing so, I met my Apple Watch goal of standing for 12 hours a day much sooner in the day than I usually do. When I went to a lecture, I squatted at the top of the stairs so I could take notes on my laptop. Squatting for so long brought me discomfort, and I had to stand up several times throughout the lecture to relieve my aching legs. Several people looked at me questioningly. I know that chairs bring comfort to our daily lives, but I also know that sitting for hours on end is unhealthy. During this challenge, I was able to strengthen my legs and I can now rest in a squatting position for much longer than I used to. I was unable to sit at my desk and get sucked into the blackhole of binge-watching Netflix. Not being able to sit in a chair forced me to be more social with my floormates and seek out constructive activities when I was bored. I feel reconnected with my body and my social life is improved. I wish for everyone to experience this; people who sit in a recliner and watch TV after work; people with desk jobs; truckdrivers; everyone. #anth101jack #anth101

For this next challenge I am going to give up social media and being on phone as much as possible. I have been getting really bad head aches lately and I think my phone has been one of the things causing it. I hope that giving this up for a few days will help with that and also help me to live my own life Instead of watching others post theirs. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101jack

For this challenge I chose to give up Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and other forms of social media besides Snapchat and messenger. Additionally, I disabled all notifications besides ones from my calendar and Snapchat and messenger. I chose to keep those two media platforms because people personally message me on them. However, the other social media variants usually contain lots of information that was not personally sent to me. Technically, I have had these off of my phone for weeks now so results have been significant. St first I always opened up my phone habitually to check those apps. Now, I have stopped checking my phone randomly because there’s nothing to check. I feel much more stable emotionally, and I’m able to focus on the tasks ahead of my much more clearly. O do see those platforms as mostly a waste of time. Especially Twitter and Instagram. I check Facebook once a day just because many of my family members use it, but I never use Twitter. I think our society would be much more present and less insecure if we didn’t attach our egos to social media. That’s my big takeaway from this exercise. #anth101 #anth101challenge5 #anth101jack

Felnesh: the act of seeking joy by observing the behaviors of others. Taking the time to stop your distracted mind and observe seemingly insignificant parts of your life that are affected by those around you the most is felneshing. To felnesh is not to focus on things people do to intentionally benefit you, but rather focus on things people do simply because it is part of their personality. For example, I find my felneshing when I see the way my dad keeps his office desk so neat and orderly, or how my mom folds shirts a certain, perfect way. The above photo represents how our family dog, Bella, is extremely lovable. It’s simply just the way she is and I find joy in it. Just look at that face. When I used the word ‘felnesh’ in conversation with friends, it didn’t seem to stick. I hope they will remember this word and the meaning behind it because I believe that it can change the way we see the world by reminding us to focus on others and not ourselves. #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101jack

Imaginifferently (imagine + differently). What would your life be like if you had chosen to do 1 thing differently? This is what imaginifferently means. What if you had chosen to major in engineering instead of business? Vanilla ice cream instead of chocolate? Taking a back road instead of a highway? What if...

My word I created was, Chlanger [CHlānjer]. Which is a creation of both a challenger and a change. Chlanger means someone or something brings a challenge in your life to better yourself while making a change for optimum opportunity. While using this word I brought up a lot of confusion. My friends didn’t understand then, I told them my definition and when they were connecting it to their own lives, I found that they all connected that word to someone they love. Someone who had made an impact on their lives and brought a feeling of change that came with a challenge. But the reason I used this new word is because I have had so many people come into my life lately that have brought many challenges to experience and help others go through. While also allowing a change be brought to mine and others lives through experiencing that change. So therefore I created the word Chlanger. #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101jack

Flawsitivity is when you take a flaw or something you don’t like about yourself and think of it in a way that makes it positive. This could change how people see themselves and others and make the world a more loving place. If people focused on the good instead of the bad, we would be happier and there would probably be less tragedy like we have seen lately. #anth101 #anth101jack #anth101challenge4

The word I came up with is “naturiosity”, which is the feeling of wanting to explore nature. Often times it could mean wanting to go somewhere new and experience what the world around you has to offer. I find myself feeling this way when I’m overwhelmed from school or just want a break in my everyday routine. The thought of traveling somewhere new is often times exciting and beneficial because you are opening up to new experiences. #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101jack

The word I came up with is “dangry”. I created this word to describe the moments for when your are desperate and frustrated towards something. When I first used this word in a sentence while talking to my roommate, he was confused and asked me to repeat the word. I then told him what the word was and what it meant, then proceeded to ask him if he has ever felt dangry towards something. He gave me a couple examples and that led to me telling him why it should be a word, he strongly agreed with me. We both felt dangry as to why there wasn’t already a word for this feeling. #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101jack

About a year ago my family started using this word interchangeably with “love you”. It started off as a joke for 4 of us – except my Mom. She made up the phrase and used it way too frequently. Eventually, it caught on and everyone in the family was saying it. We use it when we leave and say bye to each other, or over text message, or just in general conversation to be funny. What I think is special about it is that sometimes it can be awkward to “love you” in the middle of a conversation. However, “luv luv” has a very conversational, and comical, sound to it. The same sentiment of saying “love you” is still communicated, and it's said lot more. I think it’s important to have a strong sense of community, especially with those that you are closest with. This word has really strengthened the relationships among my family members and I. Another thing that is great about the word is that it can, sometimes, be used in talk with friends. My sister started saying it to her coworkers, and now a lot of people at her office say it to each other jokingly. They will end a conversation, and say “alright, I’m out. Luv luv.” I started saying it this summer at my work after I told my coworkers about it, and then they started saying it to each other to be funny. Of course, I understand that we all say it to each other as a primary joke, but it does go a long way in expressing that we care about the other person. It’s a slightly weaker version of “love you”, but it still expresses genuine care. I have also tried saying it in certain friend groups as a joke, and sometimes it’s completely rejected. A few days ago I said “luv luv” to my roommate as part of this challenge just to see what he would do, and he said, “nah, that’s weird”. It seems that the word is best introduced to people who are part of a larger community as a joke. From there, people start saying it in every day communication. Then, they will start saying it individually. I think it can be a powerful way to show people that you care about them, and it’s also funny. Community is important, and we should encourage words that strengthen it. #anth101 #anth101challenge4 #anth101jack

I want this 28 day challenge to be about health. Namely, nutrition and exercise. I want to exercise 6 times per week. 3 days with a push, pull, legs style routine, and then 3 days doing calisthenics. For my food, I will avoid eating out except for when invited to by other people. This should cut it a significant amount of my eating out. #anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101jack

By the end of my 28-day challenge, I will be able to do 50 push-ups without stopping! Currently my upper body strength is unsatisfactory and I am unable to do one proper pus-up. To achieve my goal, I will do 10 push-ups everyday for a week, then 20 push-ups everyday, then 35 and so on. I believe that accomplishing this goal will make me feel empowered and motivate me to gain straight in other aspects of my physical fitness. This form of exercise will also contribute to my daily dose of movement nutrition as Dr. Wesch showed us. I’m excited to get stronger! #anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101jack

For my 28 day challenge I am going to attempt to learn at least 2 different difficult yoga poses (the picture being the first one). I’ve danced my whole life but haven’t since being here at KSU, so I would love to get back into my routine of stretching and exercising everyday. This is going to be my first step at that. #anth101jack #anth101 #anth101challenge3

For the 28 day challenge, I chose to learn how to play the ukulele. I chose this because I’ve always wanted to learn how to play an instrument other than the saxophone. I really like making music and there are many songs that incorporate a ukulele that I would love to learn how to play. #anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101jack

For my 28 day challenge I want to relearn how to do a back bend and then flip over to standing again. I used to be able to do this. It’s one way to start moving my body in different ways and to be flexible and active again. I hope this challenge encourages me to be motivated to do other things as well. #anth101 #anth101challenge3 #anth101jack

The Nacirema are very competitive in spirit and enjoy to participate in activities such as Flog (Golf). Flog is game that involves using sbulc (clubs)with different lofts or angles to hit a flog llab (golf ball) into the eloh (hole). Typically the highest score wins, however with flog, (golf) the person with the fewest sekort (strokes), which is equivalent to lowest score wins. Normally, there are 18 different seloh (holes) on a golf course which are typically made by cutting grass to 3 different very short lengths called the hgour (rough), yawraif (fairway), and neegr (green). Flog is a way for everyone but primarily the elderly to relax and sometimes compete. Professional Flog exists in this culture and many stnemanrout (tournaments) take place across the country. #anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101jack

1: Nacirema are very passionate about a holiday called the “ht4 fo Yluj”. It started as something to celebrate yrotsih but now it is a time to host a laicos ginrehtag. 2: July 4, 1777. This is the day that naciremas mock each year. This host edaraps to show support and loyalty to their country. 3. Families stock up on the famous krowerifs that are now the main attraction for this celebratory day. It started as celebrating ecnednepedni but now we focus on blowing up krowerifs. Our focus is no longer on our country, but who has the biggest yalpsid. 4. Naciremas have transformed this holiday into a social noititepmoc. It is no longer focus on our ecnednepedni as a country, but rather the large pyrotechnic krowerifs. #anth101jack #anth101 #anth101challenge2

Photo2: a smaller group of these people come together to hold their pride possessions they call plaques. Photo 3: they get these plaques from judging and assessing plants. They all wear the same attire and badges. And complete each stationed task the same. Photo 4: all of these similarly dressed people walk into these rooms with this are sign. They all exit with smiles on their faces and plaques in their hands. #anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101jack

This is Kareem Tippin and he is a senior at Kansas State University and I had the amazing honor to meet him. Kareem is a physics major while also studying music. I had an great opportunity to hear his story about how he fell in love with the major he is anticipating to graduate in. Kareem says, when he was 7 he lived in Chicago and his mother would take him to the library some days after school. He would end up later picking out the biggest book he could find and that is what he read. This book just so happened to be a physics book. He advocates that "that's when I realized I had a knack for science and after that I just kind of fell in love with it." Starting as a precisionist in 5th grade he knew he had a drive for music. Now he sing, plays guitar, and piano and even more. As he strives to learn more about string instruments he wants to become a well rounded musician. While learning for himself also teaching drumline at the local high school in Manhattan. Kareem has a strong passion for his music and physics one of the last things he says is "If I could describe how I felt about music and physics I would say that science is like my lady love and then music is like my mistress so." Learning from other peoples lives can impact how we look at others. knowing that some people just know from an early stage what we want to do with our futures while other go to college not even having a clue what we want to do. As we go through life we need to stop and take time to learn about ourselves. Because once we do this we come to notice the smyaller things we often tend to overlook. Everyone has a purpose you just have to go out and find it.

Hey guys so for my upcoming semester in Anthropology I will be posting for my class and introducing myself to other Anthropology students! •I’m Kaitlyn Gaza and I’m a freshman at K-State, I’m majoring in animal science with a focus in pre-veterinarian medicine. And I’m from Louisburg Kansas!💜 •I chose these pictures to represent myself because being around people like this help me find my true self and learn more about myself than I ever knew before. Surrounding yourself around people who bring out the best in you is so important and I can say in these pictures I have a true genuine smile. We must take things that are important to us and make that time with them important and never take that for granted. Life is a beautiful thing and it has its amazing ways of working out, especially when it’s worth it. So love what you are given and smile about it☺️ * #anth101 #anth101introductions #anth101jack

The Nacirema people have interesting ways of interacting. 1. In the Nacirema culture, meals are seen as a social event. People In the same communities come together to catch up and talk about their days. Pictured here is a meal they call rennid which is the third and final meal of each day. 2. When the Nacirema people want things, they buy them and there is generally no lasting relationship between the purchaser and the supplier. Rarely do people exchange favors or do things for others just to be nice. Most people want to be rewarded by their actions. The Nacirema use a currency called the rallod and the more money one has, the more power and authority they have. 3. Many Nacirema come together to watch sports. Some people even worship sports and fights can break out between differing fans, but some very good relationships can come from it too. One of the most popular sports for the Nacirema is called llabtoof where they throw a pig skin ball on a field and try to get the the ends of the field. These Nacirema are watching the biggest game of the year, The Repus Lwob. This game is so big that many people around the country throw and attend parties to celebrate it. It is a great honor for ones team to play in this game. 4. Some people in the Nacirema culture have more authority than others. It is kinda of like a hierarchical system. This example is of a rehcaet who is in charge of overseeing and passing on knowledge to usually younger generations. They can have from a handful to hundreds of stneduts who do what the rehcaet tells them to in order to succeed and be prepared for life. #anth101 #anth101jack #anth101challenge2

The Nacirema use these contraptions in their buildings to get from one floor to another. These contraptions are called “srotavele”. Most of the materials needed to build these contraptions are imported from other countries. The contraption works through a series of super strong strings and a motor that controls the movement of them. 1.) In some living spaces for natives that attend the local ellegoc (school), the srotavele look this from the outside. 2.) These snottub are what you use to summon the srotavele from a different floor. To summon one, you must simply push on the snottub labeled “UP” or “DN”. The one labeled UP is the one you want to push when you want to go to a floor above you. The one labeled DN is the one you want to push when you want to go to a floor below you. 3.) This is the size of the inside of the srotavele, as you can see it is very small and can only fit about six people. If the six person limit is exceeded, then the box may become too heavy for the string to lift it. 4.) There are snottub inside of the box that have certain symbols, also known as “srebmun”, beside them that indicate which floor you want to go to. The higher the srebmun, the higher the floor. #anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101jack

Photo 1: Many Nacerima students partake in “gniyduts”. This is a technique students use to get prepared for “stset” or “sezziuq” in their classes. This activity can be done alone or with group of people. This ritual can very in length. Sometimes it can last 30 minutes, other times it can take hours. Photo 2: Often times students use “skoobeton” to remember the information they are learning better. These come in handy for any class or subject in school. Photo 3: Many Nacerima students use “spotpal” to look up more information. These devices can do a wide range of things. They are a quick and efficient way of learning information about anything. #anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101jack

#anth101 #anth101challenge2 #anth101jack The young people of Nacerima have a very bizarre practice involving a tool they call an enohp. They seem to constantly use this device in almost every single setting. The tool seems to contain multiple copies of their friends in things called laicos skrowen. Why do the youth of the Nacerima care so much about their senohp? Research has shown the young Nacerima check their senohp 150 times per day. Nacerima become separated from their tribe often for a variety of reasons: their complex economy, ytisrevinu, travel, and many more. This separation can create anxiety and loneliness because the Nacerima are pack animals. This strong desire to stay connected to their tribe makes them keep their cell phones close. As shown in the picture above, the ugly god known as a gup is seen being held by a Nacerima. Her enohp is near so she stays connected to the rest of her tribe.

This is Steve Smethers. He is a Journalism and Mass Communication teacher here at K-state. When he was young he got a toy printing press as a gift. This got him very interested by the idea of massively distributing ideas. He began to publish his own newspaper and thought he would go into working with newspapers. But one day he wrote a complaint to a radio station and ended up getting a job out of it. He was on the air for 20 years and even owned his own radio station. He began teaching in 1985 and is a K-State alum. He is always so welcoming and nice. He makes a point to walk around the room before class to talk to his students. #anth101 #anth101challenge1 #anth101jack
