I am now part of a community which I can identify with because in this community all its members share the same goal to succeed. This community is the freshman discourse in Cal State San Bernardino.

The Common Sense Of Good Judgment And Thought Process

- Common sense is to some degree instilled in all of us, it is something we are born with, if one believes it or not. It is something used every day, but we as humans do not realize it: for example, common sense is comparable to blinking; we do it without thought. The dictionary definition of common sense is, the ability to think and behave in a reasonable way and to make good decisions (Merriam-Webster). While that defines what common sense is, everyone has their own personal description and meaning....   [tags: Critical thinking, Thought, Logic, Reasoning]

Thought Process on Life

- Many people have different perceptions on the value of life. What could make the purpose of life worth living. Or perhaps it is the unsureness of the life after death that may make one cling to their being. At the moment of birth superstitiously, we are given purpose or destiny that we were born to live. Everyone as a young child grows up dreaming of their true purpose in society. As teenagers we get a sense of reality towards the near future of our ideal role to be.
