Simmons World Challenge: Consumption Scan #3

518356GQPGL

It was interesting to see how Best Buy was having a particularly successful season. The shelves were pretty well-emptied, and it was only by chance my sister was able to find the two DVDs she did: it was like searching for needles in a haystack. Where the haystack is Best Buy. And instead of hay, there are hundreds of shelves where DVDs should be.

This is my third and final consumption scan! Scattered with a tad more humor than the last two I’ve written, I hope you enjoy it. The link can be followed here: http://simmonsworldchallenge.blogspot.com/2015/01/consumption-scan-3-best-buy.html

Simmons World Challenge: A New Adventure

hands-on-world1As some of you may know, I am beginning a new journey ay Simmons College. Over the winter break, I will be participating in Simmons World Challenge, a program that can best be described as an exclusive opportunity for twenty students of the sophomore class (Class of 2017) to explore their world through a series of special lectures, field trips, and research opportunities.

This year’s World Challenge topic is sustainability as it relates to social justice. A lot of this program will require self-reflection, which will be done in a blog format.

I have attached the link to my blog designed especially for the Simmons World Challenge, so you can follow my growth and development on the subjects as I learn more about the topics (and myself!) in the next few months.

I will also post here, on my original blog, to update when I have posted in my World Challenge blog. Happy reading!
