• 7.2 Childhood Attachment Experiences

    I remember one of my childhood experiences was when my parents make my brothers and I to go outside and play. We live on cul-de-sac, and there were other 20 kids around our age live on the same street. So, we always went out and play all night long till my parents have to get us in the house for bedtime. I believe that had triggered a secure attachment style. I was able to explore the world and meet new kids and also having a safe haven right in front of me, my house with my parents being home.
  • 11.1 Major Life Event

    My grandmother died of a heart attack several years ago right after our videophone (VP) call. And I had a big basketball tournament in two weeks. I felt speechless, numbed, hopeless, and sorrow. I was in denial at first because we just had a nice conversation through VP and this can't be real. Then the reality hits me hard and I coped by using emotional support from my team, friends, and family. I was experiencing social coping by seeking help from others as in text 92% women has seek help too.
  • 4.1 My Current Healthy Lifestyle

    As a college student with a full plate of 18 credits, two jobs, several assigned roles, and intramural sports, my life is hectic busy. And I still maintain to exercise at least one hour a day 4-5 times a week plus playing intramural sports has helped me to stay entertained fit. However, my eating habit is not that great. I eat two small meals a day. I don’t eat 3-5 fruit and vegetable servings each day as I should have. To maintain my health I will need to eat more nutritious meals.
  • 7.1 Adult Attachment Style

    My adult attachment type is secure. I love to be around people so it is really easy for me to attach emotionally. As school just begins, I have a new roommate; she was just an acquaintance. We got along very well and became very close quickly. I have a positive model of myself, am an optimistic person, and view that as well with others. I like to get along with people easily; it doesn’t mean I trust them one hundred percent. However, I am really comfortable depending on them and vice versa.
  • 10.1 Fowler

    I was raised Catholic and attended church every Sunday along with the family. I grow up with a strong faith am guided to believe in God. I am experiencing Fowler’s 3rd stage of faith development- the synthetic-conventional faith, which typically appears during adolescence. As of now, I experienced a specific transition from 3rd stage to 4th stage- individuative-reflective faith. I became conformist to individualistic because I currently attend college and I focus on my faith internally on my own
  • 3.1 Oxidative Damage

    Aging is connected with our diets by how many calories we metabolize per day. My solution is to do a calorie reduction. We age because of our cells accumulate free radical damage over time. They include oxidative damages on the cellular level where the repair functions decline as it ages. I need to reduce the oxidative damage and antioxidants will help because they are rich in vitamins E and C such as tomatoes, carrots, tea and citrus fruits. We need to eat them everyday, including in all meals.
  • 3.2 Genetic Limits

    We all are programmed to live for a certain length of time. The Hayflick limit is the number of times a normal cell population will divide before it stops. It stops because the telomeres have reached a critical length and then enters the senescence phase where the cells lose the ability to divide. The telomeres will be shortened. My solution is to add artificial telomeres to the original telomeres so it doesn’t have to reach a critical length ever. It keeps dividing and it prevents from aging.
  • 1.1 The Beginning

    03/06/09 was the date I became an adult, chronologically. Biologically, I am a young fit adult. My social/psychological ages are in the process of becoming an adult; as a college student, I’m financially depending on my parents, pursuing a Bachelor’s degree, and starting working. As an adult, I have to be financially responsible completely on my own, which means living on my own, paying my own bills, and having a stable career. Ultimately, when that date happens will make me an officially adult.
  • 6.1 Young Adult Role Transition

    At around age 25 I will experience a transition by marrying my future husband. There is a change in my social role. I am not considered single anymore. I am being a spouse to a man of my life. I will have to adjust my life to live with a person financially, socially, emotionally, and the list goes on. I will make big decisions with my husband such as starting a family and buying a house; that is a big transition in my early adulthood.
  • 8.1 My RIASEC type

    My RIASEC type is SIA. The highest score for social is 12 and the lowest score is 0 for realistic. I am a people helper that like assists others and promotes learning and personal development. I dislike to work with objects, machines, or data, which are more realistic/conventional factors. I like to teach, to give advice, to help, or otherwise to be of service to people. My ideal jobs are camp director, college professor, and school principal. Therefore, SIA fits the careers that I want.
  • 4.2 Potential Consequences of my Lifestyle

    My potential consequences of my current lifestyle might be great. I do not binge drinking nor eating. I never smoked. I exercise as I normally should. I have a fair diet but it will improve within time. I do not have a sedentary lifestyle. However, my family has a history of high blood pressure. That is one risk I am aware of when I become older. My potential consequence should be very healthy and happy!
  • 8.2 Super's Stages

    My chosen career would be school principal. As in the maintenance stage I will hold an achieved job and update the school system and come with new ideas to improve the school as a whole. My job performance will be stabilized as I age because I will be satisfied with my job and is still motivated to work with a realistic attitude toward work. I have a lot of energy and like to give back to the community so I will be in the maintenance stage for a long time.
  • 6.2 Older Adult Role Transition

    At around age 60 I will retire. That is also a big transition in my late adulthood. Having a career is the longest part of my life- for more than 40 years. So, being retired is a big change in my life. It will impact my lifestyle. My social timing will be on-time due to the society expecting older adults to retire around age 60s. I will experience more free time with my beloved husband, children, and grandchildren. Also, I will travel more because at the time I will be financially stable.
  • 5.2 Attention

    An IADL event would be remembering do the simple tasks, which it occurs in prospective memory, as it will decline when I get older. The challenges would be to recall the tasks and do them. It will take me longer time to remember the tasks. I would have to develop a new strategy to memorize the tasks. I will train myself to write down every scheduled task and put it somewhere visible. That habit needs to be set that it takes practice, optimizing and compensating!
  • 9.1 Generativity

    Generativity includes procreation, productivity, and creativity. Elderly people are more likely to take care of others or society as in volunteering different places such as school, red cross, and more, doing charitable work. Noel King’s grandfather, Thomas Eisele, just retired as a federal judge last month is a great example of serving his time to the community in his hometown where everyone knows him. As he already retired he still come in and help out. He had a productive lifestyle.
  • 5.1 Memory

    An IADL event would be memorizing people’s names. To memorize a person’s name for the 1st time will be a challenge as I age. I'll experience the word-finding failures where I recognize the person but couldn’t remember the name at the moment. It will decline in the declarative memory where a specific name will be retrieved from the long-term memory and brought to consciousness. To compensate for the decline, I will repeat a person’s name for 3 times in the beginning/ending of a conversation.
  • 9.2 Ego Integrity

    Ego Integrity means when a person has lived a full live and then look back over their lives and decide if it is meaningful or not. Also, it means to see if they have resolved their conflicts and accomplish all of their life goals. For example, Brittany Frank’s grandfather Mort Kramer has retired and looked back over his life. He now appreciates his wife’s cooking more and glad that he didn’t let his deafness stop him from living his life. He has accomplished his life goals.

    Meghan Laughlin, age 102, has died peacefully in her sleep, on July 17, 2093. She lived a life full of prosper and happiness, she shared her wealth of her sunny disposition with her 5 children and 18 grandchildren. Her death collaborates her lively attitude; she went past everyone’s expectations and lived up over a century.
