Final FYE class
Thursday my FYE class took a field trip to the Lululemon store. I had never been in one of their stores but I had heard of them before. The entrance to the store was really cool with the huge wooden doors. The stores sells athletic wear for men and women, although it is mostly for women. After we looked around for a little bit, one of the employees came and talked to us about their store. She said each employee makes a goal list and they display them on a wall in the store so everyone can see. The goals are 1 year, 5 year, and 10 year goals. Displaying them allows everyone to see everyone’s goals and help them reach them. She gave us a sheet and we all filled out some goals of our own. It was cool. She also talked to us about the yoga and fitness classes they offer for free on Sundays. I want to try some of them out on Sunday with my friends. After Lululemon, we were treated to some frozen yogurt from Yogun Fruz by Coach Amy. The girl working there was a little unpleasant but we still got some yummy frozen yogurt. I got fresh raspberry, it was good but very seedy.

Reflection on Immigration
Yesterday we attended a presentation on immigration in the chapel. It was very eye opening to hear how terrible poverty is in other countries. We did a exercise where they asked everyone to stand up. They would ask us a question and if it was true to us then we would have to do something. Like if you had ever broken a bone in your upper body you would have to put your arm behind your back because if you lived in poverty you wouldn’t have the medicine to fix your bone. If we break a bone in the US we just go to the hospital and get a cast put on and normally in a few weeks you are good as new. But there isn’t a hospital they can go to to get a cast so they will have limited mobility with the bone they broke. This was really shocking to me and I couldn’t imagine living life the way they do everyday.
