Hello North House,

This week’s blog assignment is a video called “What reality are you creating for yourself?” by Isaac Lidsky, also known as Weasel on Saved by the bell: The New Class. I chose this video since we are learning about vision, disillusion, and skepticism. Mr. Lidsky is a good example of all of these; as he began to lose his sight he began to doubt that he would be able to pursue the same things as other people. In the end he let go of his fears and became the creator of his own reality.

Click here for the video.

Prompt: After viewing this video, what are your thoughts? Just like Mr. Lidsky, did you at one point in your life use fear or made assumptions to replace the unknown?

Blog Assignment #27

Hello North House,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I am the new scribe, and for this week’s blog assignment we will be discussing emotions and music. Music has a huge impact on the way we feel emotionally and could change our mood in a matter of seconds. In this video, Hauke Egermann talks about how and why we respond to music emotionally.

Prompt: What are your thoughts after watching the TED talk?  Do you have any music preferences when in a sad or happy mood? Explain. (For example: I prefer to listen to R&B when I’m in a sad mood and I prefer to listen to Hip Hop when I’m in a happy mood.) Don’t forget to use evidence from the video to support your statement.
