My ethical prinicples are pretty basic as I have not set a ground for them. As I continue to grow older, I can start to create and mold into the ethical principles I choose. For now, I live by the golden run, treat others as you wish to be treated. Take pride in the things you do and remember everything happens for a reason.

My boyfriend is a graudate student here at Clemson and he has done many group projects. There was one time when he had to do a very large report for his group project. There was a lot of miscommunication occuring throughout the group because it was right around when the project was due. Nick spent many hours doing what he thought the report should be about. It turned out that he had done the completely wrong thing and had to go back at the last minute and change everything! This miscommunication could have been prevented by talking amongst others. Even though they were crushed for time, they could have still layed out the important details of the project so that each member knew what he/she was doing!

I don't really have much experience with online portfolios other than the E-portfolio that I must create for Clemson. I am undecided if this is a good experience or bad experience because I honestly have not put much time into it. It will be interesting creating an online portfolio that will include my resume, cover letter, and other goodies that potential careers could look upon. For the portfolio draft due March 23, I need to start my cover letter! Once I have that done, I am pretty much set and ready to begin putting it together.

I liked Joe's presentation mainly because I really love skyline. I was introduced to it by one of my friends here at Clemson who also lives in Ohio. When Joe brought it to class I knew exactly what it was and knew what he was talking about. He was immediately able to catch my attention with this delicious dip!
I liked David's presentation because it was original and he was also able to make the audience laugh which is a bonus. He was able to catch the audience's attention by making them laugh and also presenting on a topic in which everyone was familiar.
I liked JD's presentation because being a student athlete it is nice to have someone show some challenges student athletes go through. Most of the challenges apply to me, I have 6 hours of practice a day, followed with study hall hours, 3 hours of class day, time to eat? sleep? Thanks JD for bringing up these misconceptions. When do we really have time for anything and when can we get cut some slack?

After the freewrite in class, I can continue on my idea. It is not going to be an easy to change the dining halls; however, we can change ourselves. It is easy to figure out what each dining hall is going to serve for the day because it is posted on the websites. We also know the different things they have daily, such as cereal, salad bar and sandwich bar. We could post things online to show what things are safe and healthy to eat and what certain things we should avoid. Also we could create youtubes of students following this or maybe showing the different types of food they are eatting that are healthy from the dining hall. Come to think of it, if enough students are eating healthy in the dining halls, then the unhealthy foods will go uneaten and the staff will catch on to the healthy eating because all the unhealthy food will become over abundance!
My group also came up with the idea of healthy recipe books that are easy to pass around to students with links at the bottom to show how the recipe is actually made. I think this is a great idea, however many students are still using the dining hall meal plans. We have to tend to the majority of the students and help them! Many students that spend so much money on meal plans are not going to have extra money to go buy stuff they can cook.
Questions for you: Once we get our idea set in stone, how do go about getting the student body involved? Do you go through Jennifer Goree?
