I must say that the whole topic for this paper seems way to broad. Im still somewhat confused as to what we are supposed to do and get from this but in the mean time, I will look at this as a simple research paper. Some ideas that I am looking at for my research paper right now have to do with the governmental systems in India. As a group we decided to look at these goals in the aspect of policies in India, but I am not finding a whole lot of information yet, perhaps I am looking in the wrong spot. Any suggestions?
Anyways, the topic I have chosen to focus on is the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger in children. I only say in children because they make up the majority of the population suffering from this problem. Not to say other adults aren't suffering from this as well, but the majority are children. So many of them are affected by this problem and need to be given our immediate attention. So many children are malnourished and are dying way before they should be.
As my research continued I found out, along with my teammates, that all of these goals are interconnected and interrelated to each other. The only reason we found this is because each person in our group had a different topic to focus on. Mine just happened to be goal number 1. But my goal greatly affects the education and health of these people. One thing that I have noticed is that the government isn't really set up to help these people living so far out from the city. The tourism industry for example is only helping the immediate area and the poeple that are living away from the city are getting no help. They need it so bad, yet the government is doing nothing about it. I find this to be a huge problem and I hope to find more information in regards to this issue.
...I probably would turn into a fat lazy slob on the couch. You know the kind that sit on their cat and have no idea where it went, or that have the remote stuck inside one of their giant flabs of fat. I would probably get like this because I am already lazy enough as it is. I barely do my homework on time and my study habits are no better than the person that drinks and parties all the time! Granted I dont do that, but sometimes I do feel like just saying "screw this, lets go out!"
Alright just kidding. I guess I would do many different things! Granted I probably would probably SLEEP MORE than I do right now! Namely because I get so damn tired throughout the day. I only get this way because I commute a good HOUR AND A HALF, I work close to 30 hours a week and I barely have time to sleep with all the homework that keeps piling up! At times it can be very stressful... but I just keep on going. But I would probably do many different things day to day. I love playing tennis, so I would probably spend more time getting better at that and becoming that star athlete! Then I could use both my fame and fortune to help out those less fortunate. STAR ATHLETE HERE I COME!
Another thing would be model building. I love to build models of ships, cars, etc.
Drawing would also be another one. I love to draw and used to do it all the time! I guess I just dont have the time to do as much of it as I would like to.
I would also work on my music and dvd collection. I am a huge movie person who currently owns at least 20 TV series and over 100 movies, and thats just dvds!
Oh and my job would be to eliminate everything wrong in this world from war and disease to poverty and hunger. Dont ask how, that is my secret. Lets just say I would get it all taken care of and solved by 2035.
Yesterday was my first day volunteering at this organization in a little while and I must say it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The student was very kind and genuinely appreciated the help. However, going into this I had a lot of precautions. One, MAJOR thing was how this was incorporated into the course. I honestly still find it very poorly integrated. It seems as though we still are being forced to do such a thing. Dont get me wrong, I want to help these students! I guess Im just used to the Arch 1281 class in which we not only interacted with the student, but we actually got to design something for them as well. It was an actual assignment that integrated the organization with the course. In this course however, I am still very frustrated with this entire thing! Once again, im not trying to seem like a jack ass and make it seem like i dont want to help! That couldn't be farther from the truth!
I guess I still have to wait to see the true benifit of this WITH the course and not just something beneficial on its own. I have previously volunteered with this organization, in fact it was just last year in Arch 1281 designing games for their young kids. That was a very rewarding experience as I love working with kids, little ones especially because they are very funny, say the darnest things, yet have the most innocent mindsets. It was great to design something for them to help with their education development. So I guess thats where I leave this for now. Im still waiting for the connection here Ozayr...
