1. General to specific, specific to general ? What does it mean?
General means like relating to a larger population, but specific means relating to a small population, like to one person. General could be like, the general feelings of a group, whereas there can be a specific feeling, where one person feels something. And it can be different than the general feelings.
2. What does "logical" mean? What is your understanding? Do you think that it correlates with the common view?
Logical means I guess, well it means to be supported by reason and not feelings. Like, this is the logical outcome because it has been proven and there is evidence to support it. It's different from "I feel this way." Logical is more scientific and fact based.
3. How do you explain fractions on the dial of the clock?
What? Ok, well. There are minutes on the clock, well on an analog clock, there are minutes. This is hard to explain wow. So, an analog clock is a circle and there are numbers on it. 12, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11. And they are all of equal distance apart, and there are small lines inbetween them. Those denote minutes and seconds. When the long hand is on a number or line, that's what minute it is, while the short hand shows the hour. There is a thin hand too that shows the seconds and it rotates all the way around in one minute. The long hand rotates all the way around in 1 hour, and the short hand rotates all the way around in 12 hours. This is complicated.
4. What is a rule? What rules do you have to follow?
A rule is a standard that someone sets for other people to follow. I'm supposed to follow rules at work. Like I'm supposed to wear this vest that has my companies name on it. I work for a summer camp and we had a meeting where all the staff decided we would wear tee shirts, and the boss agreed, but then the boss overuled us and got ugly smelly vests. I refuse to wear the best because this wasn't a rule that I made up and I don't support it. My boss has kind of gotten used to it, but I got in trouble for it in the beginning. I hate following rules that I didn't help create or that I don't support, but if it's something that can be seen as important, I'll try to follow them in order to help society. Like, I've always worked the hardest on group projects because I don't want anyone to do poorly because of me. If I know me not following a rule will hurt someone else, then I follow it.
5. What is hierarchy? Do you need to follow it? Why or why not?
Hierarchy is like a pyramid of people and the higher up on the pyramid, the more value the person has. I hate the idea of hierarchies honestly. I cannot believe that anyone is better than me, or that I am better than anyone else. I honestly think that's really stupid, and that's what causes segregation within societies.
6. What do you think of instructions? Do you use them? Could you write an instruction manual? If so, what type of instruction manual would you most likely write?
I have a hard time following instructions I think. I get a little lost among them. I'm glad they exist because I couldn't build things without them or things like that. They're kind of like a map though, which I also have trouble reading. I think that my attention span doesn't really work well with them, but I can usually get something done while using instructons, vs never getting it done ever. I could write an instruction manual about how to make someone fall in love with you, and then you accidentally lose interest in them. I'm super good at that. I could never write an instruction manual on something actually functional though.
7. Please explain: "Freedom is in complying with the laws, but not in ignoring the laws"? Do you agree with the statement? Why?
I guess that means that if you follow the laws then you are allowed freedom from jail and other liberties that could be taken away. And ignoring the laws isn't freedom because you can potentially have your liberties taken away. I mean, I guess logically I would agree because it's factual that breaking the law can lead to imprisonment. But also, what if you don't believe in a law? That law is oppressing you. You aren't free if you are obeying a law that you don't believe in or support. That really isn't fair. I guess I can agree and disagree with it at the same time. It makes me feel gross though. There shouldn't have to be such solid lines. I don't know.
8. Tell us how about consistent you are?
I'm not very consistent, I think. I am so so so indecisive. I have the hardest time making a single choice. I'm terrified of choices that will negatively impact my future! Also, I'm contradicting myself. I will say one thing and then in the same breath I will say the opposite. I don't mean to. I guess I just feel two exact different ways at the exact same time sometimes! But yeah, I have a hard time staying disciplined and getting things done. I start a lot of projects and tend to not finish them. I start out all excited and ambitious but then it gets boring and falls off :/
9. What is a "standard"? Why do people need it?
A standard is I guess like a limit I guess. Eh, I guess I wouldn't describe it as a limit. It's a guideline. It's how something is supposed to be. It's predetermined. I don't know. This question is kind of boring me. Okay, so I guess we need standards to make sure that things are happening the way they are supposed to. But honestly, I don't know if we need them. It really depends on the subject. Everyone is different and wants different things at different times in their lives, so a standard can become irrelevant. It's completely subjective. And pointless really. People should only set standards for themselves if they want. I don't think other people should set standards for other people. I don't like that.
10. You need to put your home library in order. How do you feel about this activity? How will you approach this task?
Well, this is interesting. I'd really love to be organized, but it's hard. This would take me a really long time. I feel like I'd wanna organize my last name of the author but I would probably rather organize by size or color lol. Either way it would take a while.
