Title: Don’t Regret Regret; by Kathryn Schulz The speaker, Kathryn Schulz, talks about don’t regret regret. I think the speech was informative and I did enjoyed it. I agree with Schulz about the fact that majority of people feel regret after receiving a negative feedback because of a bad decision made. I also like the fact that she began her speech with an example. Introducing Johnny Depp was a good way to start because it brought the audience attention to her. I once gave a speech and I started with a short documentary which made my speech very lively and enjoyable. I did receive a run of applause even before my speech ended. Kathryn used herself as an example of regret which made her speech very active. I also like the fact that she used I cried for weeks and I repeatedly asked myself why I had an error on the form that day. Again, I like what Kathryn Schulz said and I quote, “One of the noblest and best things we can is to live life free of regret. “Anytime I made a mistake, it takes a longer period of time for me to get over it, which intend causes me to lose focus in some the most important things in life such studies. So, if people learn to let go of the mistakes made, not only are they preventing future consequences, but they will actually live a stress-free life which is healthy and peaceful. Kathryn, brought in a quote from Lady Macbeth,” Things without a remedy should be without regard; what’s done is done.” Sometimes what people need to know is that they cannot changed the past, however they can plan again and avoid the mistakes that were made the first time. Another thing I learned from Kathryn is that as humans, mistakes are bound to happen, when they do live it behind and move on with your life. Most people go into a state of denial whenever something bad happens. They have hard time accepting what has happened. I think if twenty percent of American are picked and asked how they manage regret in their life, I think more than half of them will accept the fact that they cannot

Kathryn Allamong Jacob’s “She Couldn’t Have Done It, Even if She Did,” reflects America’s history of inequality and gender stereotypes that greatly affected society’s mindsets, even when it involved murder. Lizzie Borden was an upper-class, gentile, unmarried woman who still lived with her father and stepmother at the age of thirty-two. Being an active member of her community and part of the Women’s Christian Temperance movement, she fell perfectly into her stereotypical role as a beloved daughter who, unable to devote her love to a husband, devoted her time and energy to the betterment of her community. Lizzie, being a wealthy and moral woman, could never brutally murder her father and stepmother, she was incapable of even thinking of it, or was she? Jacob’s story of the murders of Mr. and Mrs. Borden in 1893 describes how gender stereotypes can influence the minds of a nation and how the public and media influence, male dominated court hearing, and refute of evidence all lead to Lizzie’s full pardon.
Brene Brown main point about her speech is vulnerability. Her main point of this is to understand or know what he feel and to embrace that in us.

She gives the listeners personal advice she has learned and uses pathos in a more emotional way. Her allusion to the world trade center is a perfect example of this. She reminds us how we can easily overcome obstacles when we work together with other people. Later in the address Amy Poehler shares a few things she learned from when she studied improvisation in Chicago. She says, “Say ‘yes.’ Live in the moment. Make sure you play with people who have your back. Make big choices early and often. Don’t start a scene where two people are talking and jumping out of a plane. Start the scene having already jumped. If you are scared, look into your partner’s eyes. You’ll feel better”,. The way she relates the strategies she learned there back to life touches your heart. She closes her speech with a heartfelt message, “When you feel scared, hold someone’s hand and look into their eyes. And when you feel brave, do the same thing. You are all here because you are smart. And you are brave....As you head out into the world, I wish you love and light, joy, and much
Everyone makes mistakes, it is not uncommon for people to make multiple mistakes a day. Mistakes are something that happens in the most casual way, it could just be running into someone walking. People make mistakes and people give forgiveness, but sometimes if the mistake was impactful, forgiveness may be hard to gain. Everyone wishes for a one more chance at fixing a mistake, but once the action is done or the words have been said people cannot take it back as easy as they think.
In The Great Gatsby, James Gatz is a poor boy who falls in love with a beautiful, eccentric millionaire named Daisy Fay. In an attempt to gain her affection, he quickly recreates himself to mimic her wants in a man. He finds ways to be near her, even after she is married, and moves into the West Egg of Long Island. When Daisy and Gatsby finally meet again, the romanticism is short lived. After many nights together, Daisy prepares herself to tell her husband, Tom, that she is leaving him for Jay Gatsby. In the end, she panics and plans on dropping the topic, but a quick glance with Gatsby gives her feelings away. Daisy wants to ignore her feelings, but she fails to move past her relationship with Gatsby, which becomes evident to her friends. In the end, she chooses to stay with her husband despite her feelings; she does this because she believes that change would only cause more problems. Gatsby is crushed by her actions, but fails to realize the true extent of them. He continues to pester her with hopes of rekindling a relationship that ended years ago, but she refuses, and immediately moves away with Tom. This action drives Gatsby mad, and his utter devotion for Daisy is the last thought on his mind when Wilson kills him. Sara Teasdale, a poet in the 1900s, is scared of this kind of commitment; she knows that love for another will only bring about her own demise. Faced with depression and an illness that leaves her bed-ridden for much of her life, she is heavily dependent on others to survive. She becomes close with few friends because she does not want to burden them. When she must choose between two lovers, she picks Ernst Filsinger, despite her affection for another, just as Daisy does. These actions leave not only herself hur...
Melanie Klein was born in Vienna, Austria in 1882 on March 30th. She began being interested in psychoanalysis between 1910 -1919. She is said to be a pioneer of child analysis and early development. Melanie started working as a psychoanalyst around the time of World War I. In 1910 Klein and her family, which included a husband, and two children, (a daughter, and a son) moved to Budapest. In 1912 she became a member of the Hungarian Psychoanalytic Society, and started her analytic training with Sandor Fereczi. She later moved to Berlin and started working with Karl Abraham from 1924-1925. Although she spent more time with Fereczi than Abraham, her work with Abraham is considered more important to her work.

Susan Smith could have been a normal woman. If you passed her on the streets you wouldn’t know that she would turn out to be a killer. Susan had a secret though, a deadly secret. Susan Smith was a cold, calculating killer, capable of murder in cold blood. I believe Susan had many factors contributing to the state of mind she had before the murder of her two sons, like her traumatizing childhood and the many dysfunctional relationships she had.
Sonya Kovalevsky was born on January 15, 1850 in Moscow, Russia. She grew up in a very intellectual family. Her father was a military officer and a landholder; her mother was the granddaughter of a famous Russian astronomer and an accomplished musician. She grew up living a lavish life, and was first educated by her uncle, who read her fairy tales, taught her chess, and talked about mathematics. She even bumped into the subject of trigonometry while studying elementary physics. She achieved all of this by the age of thirteen.
With parts of the context missing the way in which the speaker delivered the speech could have helped distract from those flaws. For instance within her attention getter she jumped for one of the slogans, which gave the appearance that she was really into the speech, but then giggled about it for a few seconds. This made the audience wonder about the seriousness to come. Throughout the entire speech hand gestures were nonexistent. The speaker did however change the pitch of her voice frequently. The first time was when the speaker asked the audience what the car keys meant, and then again when the slogans were restated. Another flaw in the delivery was the amount of time she spent looking at the notecard. The speaker had two green notecards, which both were covered completely. She was constantly looking down reading the notecards. In turn there were many unneeded pauses. Those pauses were not impactful ones either, but just a quiet whole while the speaker was reading. Following most of the pauses was um, ah, so, but,or you know. The filler words took away from the message the speaker was trying to get across. Overall the words used throughout were easy to understand, but sometimes a little bit repetitive. For instance she used plethora twice about 10 seconds apart. The speaker did however look the part. She had on a pair of slacks with a sweater. By looking professional it gave some automatic respect. Overall the
Everyone, at some point in their life, has made a mistake. Sometimes we get lucky and only falter a little, making it through the problem relatively intact. Other times, we mess up a lot and have to fix what was damaged over a long period of time. However, the same is true for most, if not all cases—those who make the mistake learn from it. Often times, our failures teach us valuable lessons that we only gained because of the experience we gathered after messing up. I have personally achieved a wealth of knowledge and experience just from all of my own little mishaps, and a few major ones.
Should mistakes be looked at as something to be ashamed of? Being a human, mistake are inevitable. There is no such thing as someone who has not ever questioned an action performed or a decision made. Humans are given a conscious, this is strictly for making decisions. It helps one makes decisions by questioning everything. By doing this, uncertainty is not out of the question. Wrong choices, and bad actions are not something one should ever be ashamed of. Wrong choices, and bad actions that are performed more then once are something one should be ashamed of.
