No Sox (17-2)

Hello everyone,

Wednesday we did not get into groups, but we did have Ms. Dwan Adams from Peace Corps. Since, we didn't have anytime for group sessions you may use this post to round the bases.


  1. I enjoyed the presentation and speech Ms. Dwan Adams gave us.

  2. Although we did not break into discussion groups i thoroughly enjoyed the Peace Corps information session. FQ: According to Cicero, what are the four main problems of growing old and what is his attitude towards death? A: it gets harder to work, the body becomes weaker, joy in physical pleasure goes, death is close; Cicero believed that the soul lived forever and we should both accept the natural process or growing older and not be pessimistic. DQ: Stoicism is essentially the idea that we are responsible for what we feel and think. Do you agree? why/ Why not?
    "There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will."

  3. The Peace Corps. presentation definitely opened my eyes to that option in life.

    What are Greek Stoics most famous for? (mental control)

    Is life too long or too short?

    This is a pretty cool picture/quote that I found enlightening.
