Forum: How many times do you watch a movie?
Hi Jess,

It depends on the movie for me! Some great movies, such as any Miyazaki Hayao movies, I will watch multiple times over. Other movies, such as more intense ones, I will not watch more than once.

I also am learning Japanese, so hearing it over and over again is really helpful.

Cheers!

Forum: Preschool graduations
Hi Kasey,

I am on the side of appreciating each stage of life, both for the students and for the parents. It is a big deal to bring a child into this world and everyone deserves a celebration for making it to the next chapter of their life successfully. It also gives everyone something to look forward to and tangible, especially for the children. High school graduation is way too far off in the distance. I think caps and gowns are only necessary for high school and college though.

Cheers!

Forum: Will electric cars ever fully replace gas cars?
Hi Java,

All the concerns we have now about electric cars not being fully environmentally-friendly will be resolved within the next 20 years. Technology is transforming rapidly and soon it will be common place for everyone to have solar panels in their blinds and on their rooftops. With that said, we will be able to harvest solar, wind, hydro, and natural gas much more efficiently and so we will have no need for oil companies. The major reason why this type of technology is not advancing as rapidly as it could and being mass distributed for the greater good (humanity) is because oil companies would run out of business and they have been in business for a very long time. They will not tiptoe out of the global economy.

Cheers!

Forum: Where has Customer Service Gone??
Hi Morgan,

Wow, that is pretty awful. I would talk to the manager asap (with photos of the damage) and also put a bad yelp review for them. I know many honest, hard working people in that business that have great customer service, so it puts a bad name on all of them when one of them are pretty rude.

To answer the title of this topic post, great customer service is in Japan! I have heard great things of their work culture, which has a foundation of trust, and also treating customers really kindly.

Cheers!

Where do you see yourself in 1 year? (June 2019)
What do you think you will be doing in 5 years? (June 2023)
How do you think the world will be different in 10 years? (June 2028)
_____________________

In 1 year, I will be at graduation, though I will not actually graduate until after summer quarter. By then, I will have finished a 7 month long leadership program and ideally reached all my measures so that I can start taking leadership positions within the company. Also, my business will be rapidly growing by then and we will have a few employees as well. I would also be closer to my mom because she is retiring this month (June 2018), so I will have at least 1 day per week to spend time with her.

In 5 years, I will be pursing my Master's degree in Organizational Psychology. I will be in San Francisco by then and probably will be dancing (salsa, bachata, hip hop, etc.) a lot. Ideally, I will be in a great position at work as well. I will also have traveled to Japan at least once and also to other parts of the world as well.

In 10 years, I think the world will have very few driving cars. Most people will go to a track to drive or well outside of the city to drive their own cars. Everyone will probably hate this at first, though the time made up from this will ultimately make city people much happier. Also, transportation systems across the country will be well-integrated into urban areas and much more accessible and quicker for people. I will probably be well-traveled by then and also married.

Forum: Do you like where you work?
Hi Jessica,

I do not have a job currently. As of now, I am currently in the interview process with a company called Wyndham. From what I have seen, they have a fantastic work culture and work-life balance. I really admire everyone I have engaged with so far and I would love to be apart of a company like this one. I hope I land the job so I can train and develop myself to be an effective sales & marketing person. Also, I simply want to be apart of a culture of excellence and this company seems to be one of those work cultures.

Cheers!

Forum: Do You have Curly, Straight, or Wavy Hair?
Hi Unique_girl17,

It is so awesome that you have curly hair! I always wanted curly hair growing up. My mom has blonde, curly hair and blue eyes, so I wanted to look just like her growing up.

I have very straight, black Asian hair. I love my hair because I have not had frizzy hair in my entire life. Also, it is thick, strong, and so sexy! I am happy with my hair AND I would love to have curly, black hair because I have always thought that look was really beautiful.

Currently, my hair from about my shoulder to mid-back is bleached and a faded green color. Everyone tells me it looks great, though I would love for it to grow out faster so I can have my long, black hair back.

Cheers!

Subject: Re: Calling All Bookworms!

Forum: Calling All Bookworms!
Hi Auntiec,

I love how open you are to all genres of books. Here are my recommendations and why:

1. Archetypes & The Collective Unconscious - Carl Jung
One of 2 parts to Volume 9 of Jung's collective works. Deep, fascinating text on analytical psychology and Jung's theory, which is a distinct path diverging away from Freud's work. Also deeply influenced by Nietzsche and a few others.
Jung's work is what interested me in Psychology in the first place and changed my life. It is a difficult read just because of the language used. Through reading Jung's work, I have a deeper sense of Self and also have a few short writing pieces that came out of it, simply as a natural result of getting attuned to this type of language and thought. A little slow at the first 30 pages or so, then it really dives deep and I could NOT put it down afterwards! I have 1 section to go. :)
The next step after this is Aion, which is mind boggling.

2. Designing Your Own Life - Bill Burnett, Dave Evans
I love this little book! I am reading it this quarter for one of my classes and I found the stories and exercises very helpful for my life. I also love the "designer" mindset that they have and definitely will implement their teachings into my everyday life. The book has large text and spacing so it is easy on the eyes. It also is fairly short, so it is great for a "bus book" or morning coffee or tea. Also, the cover is pretty!

3. Firebird Trilogy - Claudia Gray
There are 3 books to this series and each one is fantastic! There are complex story arcs between the books, between the chapters, and across the whole series. I really enjoyed the love that develops and also the vivid accounts of multiverse travel and little excerpts of science explanations. Some of the scenes are "graphic", so imagining all of it in my head was a little bit icky, though I have a soft stomach for those kinds of things. For sure 100% one of my top 3 books. Also, the covers and titles are on point. The first is "A Thousand Pieces Of You", the second is "Ten Thousand Skies Above You", the third is, "A Million Worlds With You". Each has significance after reading it.

Here are my top 3 fiction books in no particular order:
1. The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
2. The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield
3. Firebird Trilogy - Claudia Gray

Thank you for reading! Please, please, please keep me updated when you read any of these books! :D

Cheers!

Forum: What deep questions do you ask yourself?
Hi Wanderlust618,

I also ask myself those questions. I also ask questions about Who/What is "God" (or Source, Universie, Collective Consciousness, etc.). I also ask myself what is Consciousness and think about topics such as life after death and life before birth.

Thanks for the great topic post!

Describe one of your favorite thought-provoking episodes to watch.
What made it thought-provoking?
_____________________

I am a Psychology major and I like to think about these types of things.

One time I felt cognitive dissonance was when I was was watching Black Mirror. I usually do not watch this show because it is too scary for me, however, my friend encouraged me to watch this episode because there is only 1 scary part. It was the "San Junipero" episode, which concerns being able to upload Consciousness up to the Cloud and the role of technology in our lives. There are a lot of other elements in the episode that left me speechless.

After watching the episode, I just laid there for a good 10 minutes because I had such a deep inner conflict about Consciousness and what I believe about it versus what I saw in the show. I want to watch the episode again because I was not prepared the first time for what I was going to watch (I wish my friend prepared me better), and be able to unpack my own beliefs regarding Consciousness, technology, and sexuality.
