To make sure you earn full grade points for each online discussion session, follow these 2 simple guidelines:

  1. Your responses must be written in proper grammar and in complete sentences. You are to write at least four sentences when answering each question. Do not write your postings/responses as if you were text messaging on a cell phone, instangram or hashtags. For example, abbreviations such as “u r” or “lol” are not allowed.
  2. Your responses to fellow classmates’ comments should be justified with scholarly research, life experience or otherwise. For example, a response such as “I agree with you,” is unsubstantiated and will be considered reedy. Put differently, a simple “yes” or “no” will not be considered as response to other’s comments/postings. You need to give, at least, three different reasons of why you agree or disagree with other their comments/postings.

Discussion 1

Mariell Edwards

1.What is your name and what do you do?

Hi everyone, My name is Mariell (May-ree-elle) Edwards and I am currently a secretary for the Dean of Innovative Academies at Hastings Ninth Grade Center.

2.What unique quality do you feel you will bring to this class?

I feel like the unique quality I will bring to this class is my open mind and eagerness to learn new things.

3.If you know for sure that you will die in 16 weeks from today, how would you live your life differently, beginning today?

The only thing I would change is my work schedule. I would continue to live the same because I am already living the life I want to live. I make memories with my family already so their is nothing more I could ask for or want.

Jose Orozco

1.What is your name and what do you do?

Hello, my name is Jose Orozco. I am currently a full time student and senior at UHD. I do not work at the moment, but I do take care of my disabled grandmother, and help my disabled brother. If I am not at school, then I am at her house searching for a remote that is in her hand.

2.What unique quality do you feel you will bring to this class?

I feel as though I don’t bring anything unique to class. I grew up with a brother who has learning disabilities and so I thought it was normal for all families to have a member that faced the same challenges. I would have to say my exposure to the disabled is a unique quality as I see first hand their frustrations when they are unable to do what they want to do. I have compassion for them because it is tough to face the reality that one day we will all one day end up depending on other people who may or may not want the responsibility.

3.If you know for sure that you will die in 16 weeks from today, how would you live your life differently, beginning today?

If I found out I was going to die in 16 weeks, I would probably leave behind all my responsibilities and try to live life the way I haven’t been able to before. I know many people will say spend time with family, and that is a logical thing to do. However, some people’s lives are dictated by familiy. I didn’t choose to be a co primary care taker with my mom. My grandma has four grandchildren from her son and they do absolutely nothing at all to help out despite how much they used her. I would stop thinking about the people who depend on me because they need to learn that I would no longer be there in the future and they need to be able to survive without me. I would start to focus on myself, and myself only on day one.

Austen McMillin

1.What is your name and what do you do? My name is Austen McMillin I work for the City of Houston Mayor’s Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security. I have worked in Emergency Management and response for over 10 years.

2.What unique quality do you feel you will bring to this class? My unique perspective from working in emergency response and emergency management could provide a unique viewpoint. I have routinely seen people on their worst days but I have also seen people coming together in the hardest of times.

3.If you know for sure that you will die in 16 weeks from today, how would you live your life differently, beginning today? If I knew I was close to death I would sell all material items and use the money to travel and create memories with my loved ones. Family is extremely important to me.
