Weekly Response 1 My Freshman Year As professors focus on teaching and researching they tend to drop out of focus with the world around them Instead this professor uses this opportunity to get to be involved with student activities High Education in the United States This article focused on national debt and how we are increasing debt as people are trying to decrease their debt through receiving a better Not only that it also focused on gender roles and the gender gap with the rising increase of women attending colleges The University and the Company Man With the unemployment rate rising and higher college debts to pay off people are going back to college in hopes of getting a degree to better help them secure a job that pays well With that in mind good jobs are slowly decreasing due to the demands of good jobs Self and Society The concept of the self is closely linked with a person s past and presence Our choices define who we are as the self in society and this development of one s self takes the lifelong process as the self grows with the individual Citizenship and Social Rights As human beings we are subjected to constant change through the changes in nature As we develop the sociological imagination we will be more subjected to changes in our social world Why do we as humans believe that adapting ourselves to the environment that is changing around us is more important than staying constant with ourselves to a certain degree Every moment we re alive we are living in a perfect state But as different aspects of life throw this state out of balance we panic because we feel that we are unable to adapt to change Fred Twine states you can t change human nature imply that human nature is a xed unchanging characteristic of human beings Twine furthermore implies that we are forever changing due to our human instinct to stay alive This argument relates to Twine s idea of the sociological imagination As we develop the awareness of personal experiences and that of the society we are more likely to adapt the society and ourselves with these changes Contrary to what Twine states I believe that human nature works both ways In times of trouble we tend to fall into our old habits as we re frightened by what the situation39s outcome may be The Dissent article provides a compelling argument by stating that With job insecurity and competition for good jobs on the rise the typical college student is now older browner and more likely to be caring for a family In this generation we are stuck in a loop that we have created ourselves Our perfect state is the balance between a degree work family and money We strive for good jobs in hopes that our degrees will secure our spot from other competitors and if it doesn t we panic and return to school Why Because our instincts tell us to do so creating this safety net below us Throughout this process we are stuck in an infinite loop Therefore human nature may bring humans forward but at time human beings will always revert back to the older way of thinking Implications may be negative outcomes resulting in humans reverting back to our old natural ways
