Fahrenheit 451 Reflection

For this presentation, my role was the Vocabulary Enricher, I had to find vocabulary/expressions that are relevant throughout our section (Pg. 54-62) of the book and explain what those vocab/expressions has to do with our section. I was assigned with a group of 5, and our group decided one person would take 2 roles while the rest would take 1. I was present for all the days during the project, making sure I stayed true with my role and taking advice from other group members on how to improve on my section.

Blog Post #2: Article – How to be more Resilient

The author of this article talks about the mental Resilience and whether its something were born with, or something we acquire later in life. His article then goes to talk about how brain activity has a part in mental resilience; how high levels of functionality in the central executive network in the brain can lead to better cardiac and metabolic health than those with low levels of activity. After reading this article, it made me wonder what actions i should take in-order to live a better and happier life, and though not all my actions will guarantee happiness or more resilience, I should still have an open mind rather than try to exclude myself from new things.

Blog Post – Article: Meet the Creator behind the Egg that broke Instagram

Article: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/03/style/world-record-egg-instagram.html?module=inline

The way the author wrote this article has some positive insight about the egg, so why? the creator could have easily chose something completely different but chooses to make the post an Egg. The creator states that an egg symbolizes universality of this world, it has no gender, race, or religion. An egg is an egg. The egg also gave a message after it went viral, how the pressures of social media are getting to him. I find it interesting how such a mundane object can also be a way to transmit a message about the concerns of mental health. I myself am currently going through mental health issues and I feel that people should be aware of how severe mental issues can be if left unattended/ignored.
