FHS 1500 Lifetime Development

This paper is a large reflection on my life, and how specific events have defined me as a person, and influenced my cultural and social connections throughout my life.

This paper was much more difficult to write than any other paper I have encountered yet. It is much easier to dig through sources and compile information from outside than it is to look inside and understand the inner workings of your own mind. I delayed starting and put off the project because I didn’t really understand what form it was supposed to take. I didn’t understand how I was supposed to make cultural connections in my life. I’m a white kid from the suburbs, I have no cultural connections. After thinking on it for a while, I realized it is a reflection type paper, and then things began to fall into place. One of the requirements of the paper was to show how formative events helped connect me to my culture and society, since I have never really felt much of a connection to American culture, I choose to show how major formative events have made me feel removed from cultural aspects of America as I see them. This paper has helped me to understand my self , and why I react in certain ways, even though I know there is a better way to handle things.
