Activity: Attend Culture Night at the Loading Dock

Date: Feb. 2, 2012

The activity was to attend Culture Night at the Loading Dock in the Union. I learned a lot about life in the Philippines, such as the kind of food they ate and I even got to try some. I also got to see a native dance and some of the typical outfits that people in the Philippines generally wear. I love learning about other cultures, especially since I love to travel so its always interesting to hear how people in other parts of the world live their ordinary lives. I also really enjoyed the speaker. He made jokes throughout the show to keep people interested. He did a really great job in my opinion. I will probably attend more culture nights throughout the semester.

Activity: Visit the ND Museum of Art -Winged Shadows Life Among Birds Exhibit

Date: 1/27/12

The challenge that I chose to do today was to go to the Art Museum on the University of North Dakota’s campus to visit the Winged Shadows Life Among the Birds Exhibit. When I first got to the museum, I really didn’t know what to expect. The painting were really fun to look at. Some of the pictures I had to spend extra time looking at since they would have so much detail and many different aspects to the paintings. There were several pictures that a giant bird with a fisherman in its mouth. I thought those were very interesting to see, maybe birds are better fisherman than humans are. Another aspect of the exhibit that I found interesting was the fish nets filled with a bunch of electronics, it made me think of how human technology is destroying our natural environment. I really enjoyed going to the museum.

Activity: Attend Men’s Basketball Game v.s. NJIT

Date: 1/26/12

The challenge was to attend the Men’s Basketball game v.s. NJIT at the Betty. I love basketball however I have never gone to a game here at UND. I really enjoyed going to the game, and it was a great game too. It was a pretty close scoring game for awhile, and it was a lot of fun to watch the half time performances as well. I loved how some of the plays made the crowd stand up and cheer for UND. It was fun to see how well they could play. I’m hoping that I will be able to attend another game soon. Also, I really enjoyed going to the game with my friend, especially since we don’t get a lot of time to hang out normally.

Activity: Attend Sunrise Yoga

When: January 19, 2012

The activity was to attend the Sunrise Yoga at the Wellness Center. I have attended the Sunrise Yoga a few times before. It is a great way to wake up in the morning. It makes me feel much more relaxed throughout the day. For one hour each morning, I can forget about anything else in my life and clear my mind. It also helps me reduce stress from my hectic life. Some of the exercises can be a little difficult, however I like how you can always modify the stretches.
