FAGE Yogurt and Humans

Commonplace 10

While eating a FAGE Total Split Cup yogurt earlier today I was intrigued by the unique concept of two distinct areas. One for the plain yogurt and another for the topping. However, when the fruit gets poured into the plain yogurt, it creates this magical taste. You see, the plain yogurt is so boring and the fruit by itself if way too sweet. But when they come together it’s just right.

The complex packaging made me think about what else in life is separate, but when brought together so much better. People! Think about it, if one was to stay in their house all day and not interact with others, they would be depressed and have no clue about the world around them. Ideas are spread through human interaction. When two very different groups of people come together, the final result is diverse, leading to a unique output of work. Nevertheless, there could be problems when something like this occurs. In other words, people may have a hard time collaborating. So, next time you pour in your favorite yogurt topping, think about the underlying message.

Office Hour Visit 4/24/17

During my office hour visit with Professor Hunter Hoskins, we took a look at my revised Reading Analysis 4. At first, it lacked specificity and thorough analysis. I was able to focus on Fleming’s argument then continue from there. In the first draft, I failed to address the sociospatial dialectic which is the main idea of the chapter. Using a quote from Fleming, I incorporated his thoughts and came to the conclusion that where you come from has a lot to do with what possibilities are readily available. I also added a picture of city versus suburban life to emphasize the point that there are many benefits of living in a city such as diversity. In addition, I put links when it made sense such as the Cabrini Green example Fleming discusses. You can check out my revised RA 4 here. I am happy that I was able to discuss my improvement with my professor and create work that is at the distinctive level.
