I just don’t have time to do that

This is a little info about the assignment we had to do, totaling up our weekly schedules!

Questions:

  • Describe the study and assignment
    In this study, we, the class, recorded our weekly scheduales into an excel document. We did this inorder to get a handle on how much time we have, and what we use it for. Good stuff.
  • §  What are the top three activities that take up the most hours in your weekly schedule?
    The top of the three activites is obviously sleep. This was followed by driving, yes I drive A LOT. And after that came school. Obviously I don’t spend a lot of time doing things one would assume.
  • §  Were you surprised at the information you collected? Why or Why Not?
    I wasen’t really surprised. Work and Basketball are really physcially draining, therefore causing me to sleep, A lot. Or some would say. But the sleep is really good for me, it keeps me running good, I don’t sloth around, I just make sure to get appropriate amounts of sleep. Followed by that, I do a ton of driving. Drive to school, drive home, drive to bball, drive home, drive to friends houses, drive home, drive to store, drive home… Lota driving. And then I only goto school for 3-4 hours 5 days a week, but that’s enough to take up a large amount of my time.
  • §  How will this information and study have an impact on your life?
    Once again, probably not much. But I will try and scheduale in a little more free time. I am working/schooling/bballin myself to death. Then again, I really enjoy bball, so maybe not.

Fast Food Is Not So Fun

The Questions

  • Describe the study and assignment
    I Enjoyed the assignment, I found the study rather enlightening. We collected the nutritional facts for our average meals from several different restaurants. The meals had to be as close the same at each corresponding restaurant as possible. We then put the collected information into an organized spreadsheet, which compared the non-fat calories to the fat calories. Very informational information.
  • Select one of your meals and summarize the data in complete sentences
    The McDonald’s meal was actually one of the more healthy of the three restaurants we did. The total calories contained in the meal, comprised of a Big Mac, Large Coke, and a Large Fri total’d up to 1420 calories. The Big mac is a whopping 540 calories. The Large coke is 310 calories. And the Fris were all the way up at 570 calories.
  • Were you surprised at the information you collected? Why or Why Not?
    Not really. I knew that fast food was very bad for you, this only gave me precise figures. Though I do appreciate knowing this information accurately.
  • How will this information and study have an impact on your life?
    I will now know how bad the food is that I’m eating. Though like the average American, I will continue to eat it as if I had never heard the facts. I knew it was bad for me before, now I just know how bad it is for me. Still gonna eat it.

This weekend God showed me­­­­­­…

This weekend God showed me­­­­­­…

How many good friends he has blessed me with over the years. I recently moved here to Virginia and left behind my several of my “best friends”. Many wonder how one could have several best friends, I will cover this shortly. But I got onto this topic because over the weekend I found myself truly bored, therefore I got on face book and myspace, things I rarely ever check any more (1ce or twice ever 1 ta 2 months). I found that my best friends were still keeping contact with me, and so I messaged them back, and we chatted for a while on AIM. This chatting with them really cheered me up, it reminded me of the good times I’ve had in life, and how much God has blessed me over the years.

As for the type of friends I have, some would say that I have good friends, because I choose good friends. This is true to some degree, but I do this because my father has taught-en me the type of people I should associate with. And who decided whom my father should be? God! Thank the Lord again, yet another blessing!

And for the several best friends; I am the type that dosen’t have 100 different friends. I have 2-4 BEST friends, and every one else is just an acquaintance . Yea, I guess you could say I have a lot of good acquaintances, but this is only because I try to have a godly additude to every one I meet.

God has showed me how wonderfull it is to have a friend!

Worldview Conference

Yester day we had a world view conference here at CHA. It was good, though I thought it more of a dumbed down bible 12 “Understanding the Times” cram session then a self-benificial activity for myself. What I mean by this is, the 12th grade class has already had all of this information. Our whole class is based on it. Over all it was a great conference, lots of insightfull information, but the info was targeted more at the lower grades rather then at the 12th grade level that I am currently on.

 As for the questions…

o   Define the term worldview:

A way in which one views or intereperates all of reality.

o   What is so important about people’s worldview?

It defines who a person is, their identiy.

o   Did you ever realize the worldviews that were being presented to you other than a Biblical worldview?

 Yes

o   In the last month, identify one or more worldviews, other than a Biblical Worldview) that have been presented to you without your awareness and describe how they were presented to you.

 Buddaism, and the whole cosmic movement was displayed in a yellow book comercial I viewed recently. The commercial shows a man meditating over a yellow book, much in like the way one involved in the cosmic movement would, and he then says all of the answers are in the book.

o   Describe something you learned about a Biblical worldview that you didn’t know before.

 As stated before, this was more of a dumbed down cram session to me, I found myself personally bored. Though I’m sure, insightfull to some, I really didn’t learn anything new.

EDIT: On another note, my teacher just commented on the lyrics of some songs. I have previously thought over the songs lyrics that were presented in the presentation. I don’t think I learned from the side they were tryign to present, of how the songs were not from a christian point of veiw, I already understood this, but I guess one could say they “learned this”.

o   How has the presentation of worldviews changed your perspective or thoughts on your life as a believer/non-believer?

The presentation itself was mundane review to me, but the idea and knowledge of worldviews in general have been very benifactual to my methods of witnessing.
