2: Symbols | Elkhart Lake, WI | I put these pictures of Elkhart for two reasons, the first being because every summer my whole family goes down their for a weekend. I think everyone enjoys going there because my family is close and we like spending time with each other.This picture also represents how my family is more of the outdoor type. Usually when we are with each other we tend to do something outside instead of just sitting inside and that's pretty much how my family has always been. | I put this picture of a huge family tree because my family is really big. My mom has two brothers and two sisters and then she had six kids. So my at home family is huge and my overall family with cousins,aunts and uncles is large too. I think this is a good symbol for my family because being in a large family can have a lot to do with how you're raised. For my family it's made us close, even if we hate each other at times. Also it makes you appreciate everything you get because when you get something all of your siblings have to get something to for it to be fair, so you aren't spoiled at all.
3: Symbols | These pictures of Italy symbolize my heritage. My great grandpa came from somewhere around Naples and my great grandmother came from Sicily to the United States. Which makes my grandpa 100% Italian and me 25% Italian. I think this is a big part of who my family is because you get traditions from your heritage and its part of who you are. | The Catcher in the Rye is one of my favorite books which is why i put it as one of my symbols. Also I likes to read a lot and thats usually what i do in my free time so books would represent me in a way. Also this might symbolize that i am not completely stupid.
4: Values | I put this picture to show one of my values, that everyone is equal and should be treated that way. I try to treat everyone that same as much as possible everyday. I think i learned this from my parents and their examples of how they treat people. | This picture shows forgiveness. I am a pretty forgiving person and this would be one of my main values. In my opinion forgiving people even if you don't want to, is a good things because you holding a grudge forever sucks.
5: Norms | One norm that my family has is eating dinner at my grandmas once a week. We have been doing this for a couple years now and we do it every week except for in winter because my grandma is with the rest of the retired population in Florida. | One of my daily routines is to go home and watch Friends or Seinfeld. (which ever one is on) Watching these shows everyday probably has some influence on things in my life | because i am watching it almost every week day. | For examples in Seinfeld Jerry always trying to be nice/help his friends and other people.
6: Material culture | I chose cats as part of my material culture because not only because I love cats, but i also am a pretty big animal person. My family has always had pets and we currently have 3 cats and a yellow lab, so they have always been a part of my life. | King Kong has been one of my favorite movies since I was little. Other movies movies I love are Donnie Darko, all of the Lord of the Rings movies, Edward Scissorhands and V for Vendetta. I watch a lot of movies in my free times just because I like to I guess. I've thought about doing something that has to do with movies for a career but I don't really know.
7: Material culture | Some of my material culture would be how I dress. Usually i like to wear sweaters/sweatshirts with jeans and sneakers. (Like the ones to the left) This shows that i like to be some what comfy but I don't wear sweat pants because i care somewhat how I look. | My laptop would be one of my material cultures that define me because I am on it a somewhat decent amount of time. Also I'm am not stupid with technology and am currently learning how to code which i think is cool. (My computer does not have arms sadly)
8: Likes | I really love warm weather but I also love snow even though i get sick of it by February. Also I like to be outside, mainly in the summer because I'm not a huge fan of being cold. | My favorite food is French toast sticks, especially the ones from burger king. Another thing I like is nail polish. I know all girls like nail polish but I think i take it to the extreme a little because i have around 60 colors. I mainly just like it so much because of all the different colors.
9: Dislikes | Something I really don't like to do and am bad at is waking up early in the morning. I like this quote because it makes me feel better about how terrible i am in the mornings. | Someone I don't like is Taylor Swift; not personally obviously but more her music. I think her music is really annoying and sometimes people say her music is "country" but its not really anything it's horrible. Also she dates everyone.
