    I had family and friends. Rajeed and I would play cricket in the streets of an afternoon with some of my other friends. I had a life and a future. The Taliban changed everything. Once they took Kabul, we knew we had to leave just to live another day. The once bustling streets filled with markets were now desolate. Buildings that were brimming with people were now crumbled ruins. My family sold our possessions on the black market so we could escape. We jumped the border into Pakistan where the Taliban had not yet attacked. An opportunity came up for one of us to go to Australia; I wanted mum to go cause I had almost settled in to Pakistani life and wanted to stay. But my father sent me instead. That was the last time I saw my parents. I have no idea where they are, if they are ok, or if they are alive. From Pakistan, I flew to Malaysia with a fake passport. For two weeks I was hunted by the police for getting in illegally. I found a safe house with two other people trying to flee their homeland. After living in hiding for a month, I found a people smuggler who promised I would get to Australia where I would be safe. This was the best news of my life.

    Very often we have fantasies of how we believe our quality world should look like. I would be lying if I said I never daydreamed over what my life would look like in the near future. Even though all I can ever imagine is being rich and famous, it never crossed my mind how I would get to that point. After going over chapter 1 in my Learning Frameworks class I began to consider the types Quality World Model Professor Waters showed us; What types of relationships will I have; What will my job be;…

    The explorer conditioning technique (ECT): Treat a new task as a quest for new discoveries. To be able to perform at your peak, you have to love what you are doing. Whether it’s acting, bartending or washing dishes, you have to learn to love what you do. One way to achieve this is to technically act like any explorer would, which is to be thrilled by something new every day (or treat everything as such even when it’s not new). It should be as if each task you were making were coming…

    James Lenze’s speech was good; he seemed to adhere to most of the instructions. His verbal stance wasn’t all that great, he sounded a little like a robot for most of the speech. He could really improve on his non-verbal stance too, because he doesn’t really seem to engage with the audience or move around much. He seemed to be organized at least with the speech though; he has just a little struggle reciting everything back to his audience. The speech seemed to be a longer speech and felt like it…

    hope will never ask you to trade something in exchange of encouragement. Hope is there to encourage us to get back on our feet and keep moving forward. The main difference between both poems, “life” and “Hope is the thing with feathers” is that hope is described slightly differently. Dickinson suggests hope is something special inside the soul of every being; it comforts the people drowning in sadness without asking something back from them in return. While BRonte says situations in life might…
