To believe all men honest is folly. To believe none is something worse,” – John Adams

This quote does not “inspire me” per say, but it is a quote that I still find important. Not only is it catchy, but it is important to understand that you cannot trust everybody; that is, you should not trust rumors that you would find spreading like a wildfire through social media outlets. Instead, you should believe what you hear from trustworthy individuals. Inversely, you should never shut your mind away from all opinions, rather only ones that are not from trusted sources or reasonable in one way or another. Living by this logic has generally help me determine what may or may not be false advertising or false information.

 

Individuality vs. Conformity: Can’t Have One without the Other

In this article, there a picture that represents conformity and individuality. This image is powerful to me because I often think about this topic. I always want to break free of conformity and society’s expectations, although I may not have the artistic talent or skillset to show it yet. In the future, I would like to be a musician making music that shows this, similar to one of my favourite bands “Pink Floyd”.

Part 1: Define/Discover 

  1. I don’t like how…
  • I have a very rigid schedule for homework and school 
  • My computer sometimes randomly shuts itself down 
  • My Wi-Fi goes out at random 
  • Not having enough different shirt, pants, etc for one school week 
  • Not having any source of income 
  • Eating dinner very late 
  • Could I make a new schedule for homework and school to switch it up? Could I find new time during the school day to do some homework? 
  • What could be making it shut down? Is the power switch pressing against my desk? Is it a software issue, maybe with Windows? 
  • Is it my router, or is it my devices? Would this be happening with a different provider? Is it only certain devices of mine? 
  • Could I save up enough money to go out and buy some new sets of clothes? Is there a better way of recycling my clothes throughout the week so I can reuse more? 
  • Could I ask for allowance for the chores I do daily? Could I/should I apply for a job? Am I too young for a real part-time job? Am I too busy? 
  • Could I just ask my parents to start eating much earlier? Could I eat my own dinner every night? Alternate between my own dinner and my parents’ dinner? 

Part 2: Dream/Design 

  1. The best outcomes are…
  • Finding a more efficient way of doing work to save time 
  • Finding out why it happens and preventing it somehow, maybe by buying new parts, maybe doing something to my software 
  • Figuring out if I can do anything to my devices to prevent it somehow 
  • Saving enough money to buy more nice clothes for myself one day 
  • Asking for an allowance and working more/harder for my chores 
  • Asking to start dinner just a half hour earlier so I can digest by the time I sleep 

Part 3: Deliver/Debrief 

  1. Ideally, in a hypothetical scenario, I would do my homework at lunch and if I finish any in-class assignments early, then get home around 4 with little to no homework. I would walk in the door, sit down at my desk, and do 30 minutes of work, then have the rest of my day to relax. Whenever I decide to play on my computer, I get on with some new parts in there that will make my computer run faster, smoother, and not shut itself down and/or lose connection just when it gets fun. I sit down, play with some friends for an hour or 2, do some exercise until a 6:30 or 7:00 dinner time, so I have time to relax and digest afterwards. The next day, I wake up and put on one of my new sets of clothes that I just bought and start walking the dogs in the morning, cutting the grass in the yard and cleaning the house to the best of my abilities for a little bit of allowance every week.
  2. For me, this scenario all felt very possible and easy to manage. It would require a lot of dedication sometimes, but it would help me sort out my day, make some money, and really everything I need within the span of one day. I think if I did all of these exactly how I described them in the scenario, this would be very successful for me.
