Journalism: 9-26

1. Post your plans for your bucket list achievement here. Which item will you address? When? How will you provide evidence of its completion?


2. As a new post to your blog, answer the following question (an opinion piece) in well-developed paragraphs:

a) How do incentives govern human behavior? What is the best incentive to motivate people? Why?
b) Describe an "aesthetic experience" (Robinson) you've had, and how it has affected you.

My plan is to complete the task of driving my grandfather's truck. It is unknown when I will drive the truck since I have not yet spoken to my grandfather about driving the truck. I hope to drive the truck by the middle of October, before my grandfather leaves for Florida. I will have the person driving with me, whether it is my mom or my grandfather, videotape me driving the truck. I will also have someone videotape me from outside of the car to prove that I was driving the truck compared to any other car.

Unfortunately, I have nothing that I can complete from my bucket list. All of them are either too extreme, or are something that I can not complete until later on in life.

The item I am going to complete from my bucket list is to learn how to play an instrument. I will do this in a matter of two weeks either learning to play the piano or the guitar. To prove I had completed this I will film myself playing the guitar or piano.

My plan is to complete the easiest and fun task on my bucket list which was playing messy twister. So either this weekend or next weekend my boyfriend is helping me set up to video on my phone to prove I finished it. Messy twister is just twister with colored paint on each dot so Your hands get all messy and if you fall you fail. Hopefully this doesn't turn into a pint fight :)

My goal for this weekend is to try my round off back handspring double back tuck. This Sunday I will be going to the New England Sports Academy of Boston, with my team mates. They have just started learning their double backs, and I have not yet started practicing them. So, I am hoping my coach lets me try them this weekend! I will prove that I completed the task, by having one of my team mates film my trial.

My plan is to complete my dream of getting a detention. I will sit in the cafeteria bored for an hour on either a Tuesday or Thursday when they take place. I will upload a picture of me at detention on my blog once I have completed it.

I am going to go to Wendy's and eat a T-Rex burger. It has 9 patties of deliciousness. It is going to fatten me up quit a bit but I will do my best to finish it. I will eat this either this weekend or sometime during next week. Several pictures and perhaps a video will be taken to prove i have completed this.

Sometime over the next two weeks, I am going to try to cross something off of my bucket list. I want to try sushi. I plan on asking my parents to go out to eat at an Asian restaurant sometime this weekend to try it. I don’t know exactly “what kind” I’m going to get because I don’t know what there is but I do want to try something that I know many people have tried before. When I receive my food I plan on taking a picture of it and then another picture of me eating it.

So far i can't do anything on my bucket list mostly because of time and money. I might be able to do one of them but it would probably be a 5% chance if I could. If I can't I'll add you and show you Tuesday.

Max Albert said...

i plan on going to a whole foods market and buying then subsequently eating a kumquat. To show that i have actually done this i will have my mom record the ordeal and then i will post it to my blog.

My plan is to go on the Dead of Night Ghost Tour in Plymouth with Amy. We have both been dying to do something like this for years now. When we go, we will take many pictures for proof that we went and hopefully maybe catch a ghost!

The bucket list achievement I am choosing to accomplish is eating sushi. My plan is to go to a Chinese restaurant and eat sushi, hopefully someone will agree to do it with me. I will try to do it this weekend or next weekend. I will either capture this moment with a picture to post to my blog or a video of me eating it.

Amy Pereira said...

I am going to go on a tour of the haunted streets and houses of Plymouth on the Dead of Night Ghost Tour with my bud Oatis. We're both pretty amped about it.

The task I am going to check off my bucket list is eating 12 donuts! My plan is to go to Dunkin Donuts and purchase there buy six donuts and get six donuts free deal. Then I will hopefully eat all 12 of them. I will have a close mate of mine record me ordering the donuts then I will have him take pictures every time I finish a donut. I will complete this task next weekend!

The item I plan to complete and cross off my bucket list is eating a dragon fruit. I plan on finding a place that sells dragon fruit this weekend and either buying it or having it shipped in to a local super market. I will try the dragon fruit as soon as I get it. To prove I ate this dragon fruit, I will take a picture and possibly a video.

I plan on getting a job in the next few weeks because my mom's work is short handed. This will help me cross off number 4 on my short-term bucket list. I will prove this by taking pictures of what i am doing and bring in the money I earned. -Brian Holmes
