    use, recycling products, and reducing energy consumption within my dorm are all ways that I have improved my environmental efforts. In continuing with these ideas, I hope to spread recycling and reducing policies in my household and future apartment. In the very distant future, I plan to purchase an environmentally friendly car, as well. With my occupational wellness, I am making many connections with future educators, and my professors give me praise for work in and out of the classroom. I have completed many hours of observation in various schools around Indy and have been a substitute teacher multiple times throughout the semester. Thinking for the future, I want to attend more academic conferences that can broaden my intellectual horizons for my particular field of study; I am looking forward to the field of education very much…

    semester. I have always used the future to drive me through past adversities that I was facing. By focusing on what I still need to do rather than on what happened. In the long term I don’t think this is good for me because I still struggle with a lot of things that have happened – even those that are in the distant past. I think this is because I chose to not talk about things but instead just ignore them and move on. This has helped me learn how to repress some memories, and I can almost…

    For example, Vershinin, the new colonel in town especially displays his optimism about the future: he believes that the world will change into an “unimaginably beautiful and wonderful” (Chekhov 11) place, and that those at the present will “work,” “suffer,” and “create” (Chekhov 22) this brighter future.

    Many children experience nightmares. They toss and turn in their beds until a loving parent arrives to comfort them. Often though, the thing that eventually eases the child back into sleep is their own idea that morning and light are near. It is human nature to look toward the future to relieve fear and anxiety; but what if that future seems uncertain? What if the new day coming looks grim, foreboding, not hopeful at all? The 1980s were a time of excess and materialism. Fashion became more…

However, leaving the past in the past doesn’t mean I’ll forget, it…

    Thus backwards causation is a matter involving external time, and less so personal time. This is why we say events in the future cause events in the past, because we are referencing external time.
