Oppositions are problems that we face in our every day lives. In lecture we have been discussing how a problem can be defined, and there are many different definitions. A problem most commonly is defined as something that is unwelcome but it can also be defined as a question. When I was thinking about the opposition blog, I tried to think of oppositions that affect me in my daily life.
The first oppostion that I thought of was school vs. work. School is by far on the top of my priority list but when you are trying to be finacially independent without putting yourself in dept for the next 20 years this becomes a problem. Are you supposed to take out thousands of dollars worth of loans so you don't have to work when getting your education? Or are you supposed to juggle work and school, which may affect your grades. I have been bless with parents that support me through my schooling but I have also realized that there comes a point that you need to 'grow up' essentially. I think the solution in this situation is make college cheaper, but we know that is going to happen. I think getting your education done as fast as possible is the most cost effective way so if this means you must take out loans. It will probably pay off in the long run since you will be in your career sooner.
Another opposition that I face with my schooling is sleep vs. homework. Do you stay up all night to get your work done or do you go to bed at four in the morning. If you decide to sleep your grade will be most likely be affected. If you decide to stay up and this is a ritual for you your health will eventually be affected. I think with this oppostion in my life I usually choose the grade over the sleep, yes I sometimes get sick but I know that I did everything thing in power to get the grade I recieved.
