The New Year – hmmmm . . .
The year most commonly known as 2007 is here.
So I ask:
- What do you want of it?
- What are you willing to make happen for yourself?
- Gonna set some goals?
- Are you considering others?
I’d like you to consider this:
- Check out the website for The Center for Nonviolent Communication.
- Return here and post some thoughts on what you find there.
- You will get extra credit for a substantial post.
A substantial post is
- one that allows us to really understand what you’re thinking.
- it shows us how you came to your understanding.
- it might cause a reaction in someone.
- it is thought provoking.
For the new year i have three goals that i wish to forfill this year..
1..The first goal is to pass the eight grade with flying colors.
2.The second goal is to not get in as much trouble.
3.The third goal is to get along with most of my teachers so when i pss the eight grade i will be able to look back at this school and have fun memories to think about.
Oh Yeah,! I want to also enhance my skills on my drumming so that I will be competition to my friends at my church.!
My New Year’s Resolution is that I will be more involved in school. I also would like to learn a different language other than spanish. (RUSSIAN!!!!) My last goal is that I want to be an “A” student in all my classes. I want to leave middle school saying that I got Straight “A” ‘s. It may sound funny to you but that is my main goal. I believe that I will be able to do it if I put my mind to it. That is my Resolution for the year. Hopefully I will be able to fulfill it.
Nicole G.– I forgot to ask you this, but does “everyone is the same in their own way” make any sense to you? That’s like trying to say “you’re unique like everyone else.”
Samantha L– Oh, I see. I just didn’t understand your opinion, that’s all. I don’t necessarily aim for either, though I find peace rather hard to achieve in times of miscommunication and, as I would put it, ‘root’ for the ‘bloodshed,’ but I’m pretty much guessing that my opinion is based on my sometimes irritable nature.
Nicole W– Thanks for the compliment. I understand what you’re saying. Violence will always stick. The Eloi were with peace with one another, and so were the Morlocks. Ultimate peace could not be done–so they separated completely, almost how the United States and our allies have gathered together against rivaling countries, but the races of the future have much less interaction with one another.
Briana–You’ve ventured off into politics.
Amanda-My comment on the CNC was just my opinion on it. I applaud those who aim for peace, rather than bloodshed.
For 2007 my goals are to get straight a’s and to think more critically i would also like not to have no drama cuz i hate drama.
Amanda V, you’re extremely intellegent. It’s a relief to see someone else who hasn’t fallen into the cultural wasteland of society. On your second post, I agree with you completely. The odds of man destinguishing all problems and ‘gathering to hold hands together’, while pleasant, seems extremely unlikely. A constant need to improve and change, implanted in the human mind by birth, keeps humanity in conflict with others thoughts and opinions. However, in the point decimal percent of a chance that humanity would infact end all conflict in the future, it would infact lead to an alternative route to a perfect mechanism as described in the Time Machine not unlike the time traveler’s first theory. If man created perfect peace, they would end conflict and in turn become similar to the mush of the Eloi. I may be thinking too hard into it…
For 2007 i want people to learn how to bite their tounge,meaning,learning how to just be quiet.Also i want adults to give their kids some slack because they don’t really know how hard being a kid is.
I’m willing to stop messing around about my grdes and care more about grdes than friends.
My goals for this year are to get 4 a’s and not to be so hot tempered or hot headed.
This year im considering others by listening to them when their right.
