  • Birthday!

  • Infancy: Emotional Development

    What was your temperament like as a baby? My mother always says my sister and I were super boring children. She told me that we hardly ever cried, never made a public scene, and have always just been generally well behaved and relaxed.
  • Infancy: Cognitive Development

    Tell a story that demonstrates at least one concept related to Piaget's stages of cognitive development. In terms of discovering my senses, my mother used to feed me lemons to see what face I would make when I was a baby. She thought it was the funniest thing in the world to see me make faces because these lemons were so sour.
  • Infancy: Physical/Biological Development

    Infancy: Physical/Biological Development
    When did you start walking? I started walking exactly four days before my first birthday, right before my dad got on a plane to deploy to Germany. I actually took my first solo steps to my dad right before he left, which according to my mother made his day.
  • Infancy: Emotional Development

    Were you securely/insecurely attached to your primary caregiver? According to my family, I was securely attached to my primary caregiver as an infant.
  • Early Childhood: Cognitive Development

    What sorts of interests did you have as a young child? For the most part, all I did when I was that age was hang out with my sister and her friends and running around. My mom always tells me and my sister that we were super boring kids and we never really did anything.
  • Early Childhood: Cognitive Development

    Do the previously mentioned activities (labeled as the same date) fit with the research on children's concept formation and categorization? I would say the running around part does, as there is not too much else someone between the ages of 2 and 4 can do. My sister is seven years older than me and her and her friends used to play video games, so that fits in with the research as well.
  • Early Childhood: Cognitive Development

    Tell a story that demonstrates at least one concept related to Piaget's stages of cognitive development. I was in the car with my mom and she called me crazy and told me she would take me to the "nut farm". Long story short, she had to explain to me that there was no real farm for nuts, and that she was joking about taking me to a mental institution and I cried for who knows how long. She still claims its the most upset I've ever been, so I think this is a pretty important speech development.
  • Early Childhood: Cognitive Development

    What is one way you remember your parents and/or a teacher acting in a way that you know now helped your language acquisition? My parents have never really watched what they say around me (reference nut farm story from 02/10/2001), which I really think assisted my knowledge of common phrases used in my community.
  • Early Chilldhood: Emotional Development

    How did family and friends/teachers describe you as a child? Was this the same or different from your infant temperament? My family, friends, and teachers all maintained that I was relaxed as a child. I had a teacher early on that I wrote a letter for that she still has framed in her classroom because she appreciated how kind and relaxed I was.
  • Middle/Late Childhood: Cognitive Development

    Tell a story that demonstrates at least one concept related to Piaget's stages of cognitive development. At this age, my family had a Shih Tzu, and I was able to recognize it as such. This shows reversibility in that I could recognize my dog as a Shih Tzu and my Shih Tzu as a dog.
  • Middle and Late Childhood: Physical/Biological Development

    How often did you get physical exercise? What sort of activities did you do? What were your feelings regarding physical exercise? I was involved in soccer and dance at the time, so I was physically active everyday. At the time I don't think I thought of it as physical activity, just activities I enjoyed doing.
  • Middle and Late Childhood: Physical/Biological Development

    Which gross or fine motor skills were used in the activities listed from this period? I'm not really certain soccer at this level required anything but running and kicking for gross motor skills. Dance required more fine motor skills like attention to hand and foot details.
  • Middle/Late Childhood: Cognitive Development

    Describe an experience that made you aware of a certain concept of intelligence. What was this concept of intelligence? How did this affect the way you thought about intelligence and yourself? When I was in elementary school in Texas, we had a program called Talented and Gifted. You had to test into it, and if you made it in you had to leave class occasionally to do extra work. This was my first real concept of intelligence, and it forced unreasonably high expectations that I didn't enjoy.
  • Moved to Huntsville, Alabama

  • Adolescence: Physical/Biological Development

    Did you enter puberty early or late compared to your peers and how did it affect your development? From what I remember I entered puberty late. It didn't really affect me much besides the fear of the inevitable.
  • Adolescence: Cognitive Development

    Tell a story that demonstrates at least one concept related to Piaget's stages of cognitive development. Assuming that at this point I was still in the concrete operational stage, I used inductive reasoning to determine that I was allergic to Ibuprofen. I noticed that after taking it, my lips swelled for several hours, and was able to trace it back to the medicine after it happened more than once.
  • Adolescence: Emotional Development

    How would Sternberg have described your most important relationship in adolescence? Sternberg would probably categorize my most important relationship in adolescence as romantic love. At the time I was in a long term relationship that ended after three years.
  • Adolescence: Physical/Biological Development

    Which gross or fine motor skills were used in the activities associated with this period? Walking, running, and marching were the gross motor skills required for lacrosse and colorguard. Controlling the lacrosse stick and flag were the fine motor skills associated with the two.
  • High School Graduation

  • Adolescence: Physical/Biological Development

    How often did you get physical exercise? What sort of activities did you do? What were your feelings regarding physical activity? I played lacrosse and participated in colorguard, so I still exercised every single day for several hours. I loved lacrosse but hated running, so I guess this is where I got lazy.
  • Early Adulthood: Emotional Development

    Think of your closest relationship now, whether that's a friend, family member, or romantic partner. How would you describe the attachment style? I would say I am securely attached in my relationships. I never really worry about how much people rely on me, because I rely on them just as much.
  • Early Adulthood: Physical/Biological Devlopment

    How often did you get physical exercise? What sort of activities did you do? What were your feelings regarding physical activity? Currently I only do colorguard and get exercise for about to hours three days a week, not including game days as a Marching Blazer. Occasionally I do a 5K with my dad, but beyond that I don't do too much. It's not much exercise, but I sure do complain about it.
  • Early Adulthood: Physical/Biological Development

    Which gross or fine motor skills were used in the activities from the period? Again, marching was/is the gross motor skill necessary and controlling the flag requires fine motor skills.
  • Early Adulthood: Cognitive Development

    Tell a story that demonstrates at least one concept related to Piaget's stages of cognitive development. Giving myself the benefit of the doubt, I would like to think I at least exhibit the deductive reasoning part of the formal operational stage. An example of which being that I recognize that I just injured my knee, and I was able to use what movements hurt to deduce which part of my knee was being problematic.
  • Early Adulthood: Emotional Development

    Early Adulthood: Emotional Development
    What classification of Sternberg's relationship is most appropriate now? Currently, liking is probably the classification Sternberg would give my most important relationship now. This title is given to friendships, and my friends are some of my most important relationships right now.
