In today’s schools, there are a lot of people who feel the need to express themselves by drawing, writing, acting, dancing, or fashion. The school I attend, CAPA, is very much in favor of expression through the arts, but some schools do not have these portals for expression, mainly music. Music is one of the ways I express myself and is one of the best ways out there. I know music programs for schools can be a bit harsh financially, or you may think students today are undetermined and lethargic and will not take interest in a program like this, but I’ve come with another look on this matter.

Music is one the best ways of expression and has been for ages. Music is based on feelings- based on the feelings of the composer. These feelings are expressed the through the very melodies, harmonies, and rhythm you and I listen to. If the music programs are terminated in schools, the music we “feel” will die out because the younger generation, or any student, will not have the chance to experience the blissfulness of music. This means money should be the last thing to worry about when dealing with the development of students.

It is proven those students that have taken any interest in an art form, do well academically. A lot of students have poor grades in many schools because a lot of them waste their time doing nothing. This is a great reason to keep arts programs in school. With these programs, students interact with each other, to stay out of trouble, and to develop their character.

Another issue with students is the determination of the students in school. Many of the students are looking for a way to communicate because it’s hard to talk about what they feel. How would you know if a student is willing to go along with this course, if you do not try? I know it is hard to find good instruments, or music at a decent price, but I believe a life is much more than money, and if a chance is all that there...

...term of the sequence. When writing the general expression for an arithmetic sequence, you will not actually find a value for this. It will be part of your formula much in the same way x’s and y’s are part of algebraic equations.
a1 is the first term in the sequence. To find the explicit formula, you will need to be given (or use computations to find out) the first term and use that value in the formula.
n is treated like the variable in a sequence. For example, when writing the general explicit formula, n is the variable and does not take on a value. But if you want to find the 12th term, then n does take on a value and it would be 12.
d is the common difference for the arithmetic sequence. You will either be given this value or be given enough information to compute it. You must substitute a value for d into the formula.
You must also simplify your formula as much as possible.
Let's Practice:
i.Write the explicit formula for the sequence that we were working with earlier.
20, 24, 28, 32, 36, . . .
The first term in the sequence is 20 and the common difference is 4. This is enough information to write the explicit formula.
Now we have to simplify this expression to obtain our final answer.
So the explicit (or closed) formula for the arithmetic sequence is .
Notice that an the and n terms did not take on numeric values. They are a part of the formula, again like x’s and y’s in algebraic...

What is the “Self” and what is the “Soul”? The answer to this question can vary in all different kinds of ways. If you ask someone religious they will tell you that you the self is more of a shell for the soul, and the soul is the spiritual essence of a person. If you ask a philosopher, they will most likely answer those questions with another question, such as are they not the same thing? Or what exactly is the essence of a person? In David Samuels’ essay “In the Age of Radical Selfishness” he gives us a multitude of examples on the self, versus the soul using his own personal life experiences.
I found Samuels essay to be quite relatable. Through his detailed descriptions of his life, he is able to give insight into the selfishness of the common individual. He talks about how as people we delude ourselves into being preoccupied with little things that don’t truly hold value. According to Samuels, “…many hundreds of thousands of people in their twenties and early thirties seem to lack any sense of necessary connection to anything larger than their own narrowly personal aims and preoccupations.” This basically means that people aren’t truly living up to their full potential. We set small goals, and do what makes us “happy” for the moment, but never move on from that. Society has lost its drive for improvement so to speak. I found it quite interesting how Samuels discussed how even though his relationship with his...

...To disclose or not to disclose?, That question usually comes when you start a new relationship with a friend, a boy friend, a new job or any new relationship, but disclosing can also happen with people we have known for a long time or not. Scholars define self-disclosure as sharing information with others that they would not normally know or discover, but I feel like each person has his or her own way of defining what self closure is. To me, self disclosure is letting myself go and trusting the person I am disclosing to, it involves risk and vulnerability on my part sharing important information to someone. Therefore I go back to the question I posed before, do I trust this person or not, do I love this person to feel my vulnerability, do I want to have the other person know my inner most secrets, should I really risk it or not?.
The way I feel about self disclosure, is that it is a way of gaining information about another person, it is one way to know about how another person thinks and feels. When it comes to my friends, If they are new friends and I have known them for a short time i don’t really want them to disclose so much information about themselves to me since I don’t know them very well. I feel like once they disclose something to me It is kind of implied that I have to also disclose something to them which I do not really want to do. When it comes to my family in general I find they are some members of...

...Self-Confidence

Definition
• Self-confidence is characterized by: assertiveness, optimism,
eagerness, affection, pride, independence, trust, the ability to
handle criticism, emotional maturity, and the ability to accurately
assess our capabilities.
• What is Self-Confidence?
– Self-confidence primarily refers to us having a positive and
realistic perception of ourselves and our abilities.
– A lack ofself-confidence, on the other hand, is characterized
by: self- doubt, passivity, submissiveness, over-conformity,
isolation, sensitivity to criticism, distrust, depression, and
feelings of inferiority and being unloved.

What Causes a Lack of SelfConfidence - 1
• Experience: We often develop feelings of inferiority and
hopelessness through various negative life experiences at
home, school, on the job, etc. For example, when you were
growing up your parents might have been unable to provide a
healthy and supportive environment. They were critical,
demanding and/or overprotective of you. As a result, you
develop negative perceptions of yourself.
• Loss of a family member or close friend. For example: your
parent's divorce, moving away from home for the first time (you
are away from your friends and family), and breaking up with
your boyfriend/girlfriend.
• Dwelling unnecessarily on negative events such as failures and
disappointment, instead of using...

...First Short Response Paper
Interpersonal Communication
Analyzing the idea of self-concept; which encompasses the ideas of values, attributes, and beliefs that all add up to create the individual that I have become; I consider the progress that I have made thus far. See, I believe that I have transitioned to become a different woman that has very different beliefs and values in different arenas of life. According to the book, self-concept is defined as a multi-structural aspect that refers to the perception that one has of oneself. When I was a younger girl, my core belief structure was doing activities, jobs, and experiments that allowed for an increase in my growth, basically activities that I only benefitted from. My major basis for living was achieving goals that would allow me to become an instrumental individual in the world. Although my core belief is unchanged (achieving major success and growth) my underlying goal has changed dramatically. My overall goal for myself is becoming a lady who has instrumental impact on the lives of others which will in turn allow me to grow by seeing the progress in others. In exploring my belief structure, I find myself adhering to a core principle “Doing unto others, the way that you would want them to do to you”. For me to continue to achieve this belief, I have adapted a positive, optimistic, driven, goal-oriented, self-sustaining, and independent attitude. While these sounds...

...The Cost of Self-Expression
Within the play The Awakening there are many different ideas and themes expressed about the entire piece concerning Kate Chopin’s message to society. It is obvious that there are many motifs Chopin could have been trying to communicate in order to create controversy and insight. However, the main focus of this play is that self-expression, if suppressed, could become too much for any one person to bear.
It is not difficult to see that Edna has a great deal of hidden emotions that have built up overtime. She entered a society entirely different from that which she had known in her previous life, she was faced with new responsibilities (which she did not find any enjoyment in), and she was met with a new set of expectations which restricted her personal freedom. She even described her marriage to her husband as “purely an accident, in this respect resembling many other marriages which masquerade as the decrees of Fate” (Chapter 6). Her options in the given society were highly limited. She could either find an outlet by which she can express herself, or she could spend the rest of her days working to maintain a life which she is not happy living. However, this choice proved to be a difficult one.
If Edna were to express herself and become more independent, she would have to break some of her ties with her husband, her family, and her lovers, not to mention her high-class friends. In...
