Overwhelmed with reflections

This is another blog that I have started! Please by all means take a look around. I will be adding a lot more in the weeks to come. Let me know what you think.

Collect, select, reflect, and project

Hi all!

I absolutely love learning about how and why people do the things they do. Don’t you? For me sociology has been a way to be really reflective and examine my life while trying to understand people from other groups and cultures. It is about learning about the lenses that I view life through and pondering how that effects the way I view different situations. Image

This photograph in particular reflects just how much I have taken my privileged upbringing for granted, it wasn’t until this year when I read Robert Neuwirth’s Shadow Cities that this dawned on me.

This video really put me in my place this week and I think that you will find it particularly troubling as well that as privileged American’s we let our minute problems feel so large.

How did the video make you feel? I know that I am guilty of these sorts of complaints daily.
