    During the course of the two weeks the one behavior that I selected to change was to reduce my spending behavior. My first thoughts on trying to modify this behavior was that this was going to be a stress-free assignment that I was going to be able to accomplish with no problems. Going into the assignment and believing that I was going to only need to put little to no effort into it lead me to becoming quite surprised when I discovered that it was not as easy as I made it out to be. However, once it was actually time for me to begin to change my behavior it wasn’t as easy as I expected it to be. As the observation week commenced it came across as if I selected one of the most awful weeks to begin to observe my spending behavior. Considering the fact that the week of my observation was also the weekend of homecoming, it brought along a considerable amount of expenses and events for me to partake in.

On Thursday of that same week…

    In accordance to statistics Canada, it is revealed that an average of 40 hours is spent as a work week of a self employed and 35 hours average workweek for employees (Cbc news, October 2011).

    My media-free experiment ran from Saturday 11/5 through Tuesday 11/8. My typical day is not as social media oriented as many other people, so I thought this exercise might be a bit easier for me than the typical student. I don’t have Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or any of the other various social media accounts. I do text quite a bit to keep in touch with my wife, kids, and friends since I am on a rotating night schedule now, which severely limits the amount of quality, face-to-face time I have…

He did this by creating the assembly line. This assembly line enabled the mass production of the automobile and ultimately a discounted price. Socially, among other things, he improved the quality of life greatly. People were able to take vacations to places that they would have never have been able to go, even if just for a day trip on…

    “Don’t forget, the paper is due next Wednesday!” My 8th period teacher, Mrs. Oakford told to my class and I as we streamed out of the cramped classroom on a Friday.
