April 24, 2012

Today I turned in portfolio two and I feel really good about it. I put a lot of time and dedication into my project and I really think it turned out great. I hope I get a good grade on it because I worked hard. There are some parts in it that I could have done better, but all in all I am pretty happy about portfolio number two! Now I just have to focus on my next one and finish strong. My video is going to be about affects of divorce on children and everyone around them. Who is there support? How do they act? Are the parents telling the children in the right ways? Who there for the children when the parents are fighting? All of these questions and more will be answered through my video.


In Class

April 24, 2012

While doing my project I realized I am missing a lot of information. I have been going on google and other websites to try to find information that really relates to my project and makes it better. I looked on youtube a lot also because the videos are very informative and showed me new things that I did not know. I do a lot of my information at night because I am finished with all my other homework and have time to really concentrate. In class we saw videos on procrastination and that showed me that I do that all the time. I also procrastinate and my grades are affected because of it. I know now to work on all my homework and projects ahead of time because I will get better grades and I will have more time in the end to work on other things and have a good time outside of school.


Out of Class

April 24, 2012

Today as I was working on some homework I came across a video that I think will be beneficial for my project. It really showed me a lot about divorce and had a lot of information. I am glad I came across this because it was very informative and is going to make my project that much better.




April 23, 2012

I have multiple perspectives for my project.  I have counselors, parents, children, teachers, and my own view. I used counselors in my project because they can show how children are affected and ways they can help out. Parents are the ones dealing with the divorce so of course they have a say in it. I want some of their opinions on there because it will show that they are more worried about them and how it will affect them. Instead of worrying about the children and how it is going to affect them. I chose children of course because they are the main reason why I am doing this project. Their opinion matters most to me and I really want to show everyone who watches it all the consequences. Teachers are in there because they see a change in the child and no something is going on with them. Sometimes they do not know the main reason for sure but then when the children confines in them they realize that it is really important. I put my own story in there because it will help people understand that I have been through it and that in some ways I know what I am talking about.


Annotation Problems

April 23, 2012

While doing my annotations, I had a lot of problems. It was hard to get everything cited and then put it together to make something out of it. I really enjoyed reading the different information because it really prepared me for the project and I think it will make it a better presentation in all. I have also been having problems getting all the information into the summary. I do  not want to plagiarize anything but I am trying to include all the information needed for my portfolio. My favorite things about my project is my reflection. They may not be the longest or the most intelligent, but I do find ways to connect it to my overall message and what I can do to make my project better.


Annotations #2

Nasif, Greg. “Your Parent`s Divorce: Not Worth Your Time.” The University of Maryland`s Independent Daily Student Newspaper. Diamondback Online. 17 June 2011. Web. 18 March 2012.

Direct Link: http://www.diamondbackonline.com/opinion/your-parents-divorce-not-worth-your-time-1.2414168#.T3oKJKtrPK1



Greg Nassif writes about the difficulty of divorce from a college student’s perspective. College is a big deal and is not an easy thing to accomplish at all. If you add your parents arguing all the time and talking about getting a divorce, it makes it a lot harder. Nassif teaches us about the “golden rule” in divorce. “College is tough enough as it is, and although it’s a time when you may need your parents most, if they are going through a divorce, they are distracted with their own problems and oftentimes use you as a pawn in their Holy War” (Nasif, 2011). This is the part where the child understands that they are not a part of it. They should not have to deal with the parents decisions about divorce. It is hard enough that the child will be separated from one parent, but to drag the child down with them is not right. No child should have to be involved in any part of the divorce no matter what. If parents keep putting their children in the middle of their battles with their spouse, it will only make things worse for the children. It puts pressure on the child to make them feel like they need to pick or a side or rat the other parent out when they do something that is not appropriate. Nassif also writes that many children hear the same thing over and over again, “it`s not your fault.” Many children do understand that, and hearing it just makes them think about that being the reason. Nassif`s main goal was to inform the college students that their divorce is their fault and the children need to start focusing on their selves and make their own way in life.



This article was really informative. Divorce happens to children on all ages and most of the time the children believe it to be their fault. They need to understand that it is their parents mistake, not theirs, and they need to move on with their life. Hopefully they can develop a love that lasts longer than theirs but first thing is first, MOVE ON. Also, Nassif`s article is from his point of view, someone who has experienced divorce first hand and knows how to deal with it. I think that part really proves his argument that parents should not put pressure on the child because they have enough to deal with as is.



I love this article. I am a college student and my parents have gone through a divorce so it really gives me a different perspective to look at. This article helps me understand what I should have done at a younger age and what I should be doing now. This article will help my topic because it will increase my audience to even more people and give them different ways to view the divorce. Also, it will help college students understand that the divorce has nothing to do with them.
