What is the opportunity cost of seeing a movie?


The opportunity cost of seeing a movie in this day and time means that you are going to give up the money that you would spend on that movie instead of using it for something else that you may need later on during the week. This happens a lot in the world because people think that money is everlasting, and they will always have an abundance of money coming in. However, this is not the case in the real world. You do not have an abundance of money coming in and it never lasts long enough. Choosing how to spend your money wisely is the most important lesson of your life because you have other things to think about when that time comes. People do not think about the consequences of their actions until they have committed the act. Spending your money on movies, fast food or other things only to turn around and complain that you do not have the money for food, gas or other things that you need that are more important to survive in the world today. Many people watch the money that they spend because it is something that does not come easily. Most people have to work forty hours a week to make enough money to pay for the important bills that they may have everything else is optional. Some people have second jobs to make their spending money for the week so that they can enjoy going to the movies, out to dinner or other things that they may like to do. Do you know it took us three years and debates over buying a flat screen television because there were other pressing items before we wanted to spend money on something that is only going to amuse us for a little while during the day. Mainly the children because she does not watch that much television to begin with. Some things in life are optional and sometimes it is something they do not really need but want. You have the opportunity to make money and only spend what you want on the material things in life. However, people need electric, water, food, and gas to make it through in the world today. With every step that you take, every table that you serve you are making the money that you need to pay the bills. It may not be much but if you spend your money wisely and watch what you spend it on anything is possible. Many people think that they are owed to have everything that they want in life however, when you grow up and finally get your own place you will see that you cannot have everything that you want. It is not logical in this day and time to spend thousands of dollars on pointless things just to make yourself happy with your life. You are what makes your life and if you want more things out of life you have to make sacrifices whether you like the outcomes or not.

Give three examples of important tradeoffs that you face in your life

180211_10150960014629939_177941515_nSome of the tradeoffs that she faces in her life deal with homeschooling, college, work, and family. Sometimes it is hard to make enough time in the day for these things that she holds dear to her heart. Sometimes there is not enough time and you have to make sure that you have the time to get the required things done with the allocated time that you have during a day. You have to spend your time wisely to manage to get the items done in the allocated time that you have set out for those items. First, homeschooling is important because the future of her children is in the midst of learning what to expect in the outside world. So making the right amount of time to spend with her children to make sure that they learn the basic concepts that they will need to know in the real world. Secondly, college in order for her to further her career, and learning experience she needs to make the most of her college learning experience and use the information in the outside world. Many companies today are looking for people that are educated and understand the concepts of running a business. She needs to make sure that she has allocated enough time for her to understand the concepts that she will learn in her classes, and how she can use them in the real world. Furthermore, making time for your family is the most important because they come first in your life. She knows that having your family stand beside you through the hard times, good times, and any other times that may become a part of your life. Making time for the family can involve many things like taking them out on an outing, having a barbeque, watching a movie together or just spending quality time together as a family.  People do not manage their time wisely therefore, they are stressing about the things that they need to accomplish throughout the day. Planning your day with schedules, and making sure that you have the right amount of time to spend on each of the things that you need to accomplish will leave you feeling that you have accomplished something today.  The part of your day that takes up at least eight hours of your time is work. This is essential in making the money to pay the bills, and other things that you need in your life. Without money, you cannot accomplish much in your life so you have to allocate your time to make the money that you need to make it in the world. Everything that you do in life revolves around money, and you cannot make ends meet without that green paper money that everyone strives to make enough of to make life easier and without worries. Some of the things that you learn in college help you understand the concepts in the real world. Any business wants to make money that is why they are a business.

The Outside World

When I look outside I see the wonderful things that make the world what it is at one point in our lives we have to look beyond the trees, forest, and other things that you may see outside. There are many things that you can learn about the outside as we have learned through our homeschooling within the last three years. The children have learned so much about the outside world, forest, trees, insects, and other things that you may see if you sit still long enough. You have to imagine sometimes some of the things that you would like to see by using your imagination you can see anything that you want. It just depends on how much you would like to see when you take that stroll outside. Walking through the forest, woods, or anything else gives you that calm collective feeling of the outdoors, and the different types of wildlife that you may see on your stroll. Finding your calm peace of mind is what makes the day brighter. Seeing something that you have never seen before on your walks makes you want to walk more because you never know what you will see the next time. It becomes a way of life and making that a part of your life can help you think through some of the problems or uncertainties that you may have throughout your life.

Texting While Driving

It should be against the law in my opinion because it can cause serious problems because they are not paying attention to the road. It is against the law to drink and drive because of the problems or issues that causes. It is against the law to be under the influence of drugs while driving because of the implications that it causes. Wearing seatbelts is mandatory for everyone that drives because it can save lives. So people are having issues with the new law that goes into effect “get over it”. I would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to driving and texting, which I do not do anyway. It is amazing that people can do this type of thing and be aware of the surroundings while driving. It is hard enough to watch out for the other people around you why would you want to chance your life texting instead of waiting until you stop. Is it that important that you cannot wait until you reach your destination. Is it worth causing a wreck, and possibly killing someone because you cannot wait until you come to a complete stop to text your friends.

Why did America side with the French and British in World War I

America sided with the French and British because of the actions of the German government. One of the things that the Germans did was allowing the sinking of the merchant ships by their fleet of submarines (U-boats). Secondly, the Germans offered Mexico incentives to join their cause. President Wilson declared war but also told Germany to settle their differences in a civilized and diplomatic manner. America has a long history with the French and British because many of  them can count their history back through the roots of their ancestor’s. So this is why America sided with the French and British in World War I. However, the most important reason America sided with the French and British was due to the fact of the money that was coming from France and England.

What Conflicting Social trends were at work during the 20’s

The conflicting social trends that were at work during the 1920’s included women coming into the workforce, and taking over jobs that the men did during that time period. The Stock Market crash, automobiles had established fully, the 1920’s saw new technologies, and new inventions. The roaring twenty’s was a time of moving away from tradition. Rates of sexual activity both before and outside of marriage. Most women worked outside of the home in factories, stores, offices, and a growing amount of the middle class of women were attending college or entering into professional careers. During the 1920’s things like radio’s, telephones, and motion pictures created a mass culture that linked all Americans more closely.

To Everyone in Moore, Oklahoma

Our prayer’s are with the families in Moore, Oklahoma and the tragedy that they are going through right now. I pray they find the strength to move on with their lives. I know that I have never been through a tornado and I am not sure of how they are feeling right now. Devastation is always hard to go through and it takes time to rebuild their homes, and replace the things that they have lost.

The Wonderful Seasons

Springtime is the most perfect time of the year because the flowers are starting to bloom, the trees are starting to get their leaves, and the birds are coming out even though they come out all year long. It is still my favorite time of the year. I enjoy sitting in the springtime sun watching the wildlife come and go. The stunning green leaves and beautiful flower’s that bloom in the springtime fill the air with the calming effect. Although it does mess with the nasal passages it is still the time when you can get the spring cleaning done, have a yard sale without having a heat stroke, and enjoy the family time. Watching the insects and learning about the many things that come alive when springtime comes. The children enjoy learning about the variety of bugs that come out in the springtime and enjoy collecting the insects to feed the lizards and frogs that they have in their terrarium. The springtime is the best time of the year to find insects because you do not have to worry about tics, or other pests that would disturb your learning experience. Summer of course, is the hottest season of the year and you do not feel like doing much outside because of the hot weather. Of course, you can find some wonderful insects and flowers blooming all around the yard. Growing a garden is the best time of all of these seasons because you will have fresh produce and lots of other good things to eat. This spring I have planted lilies, carnations, and many other flower’s in the front yard. In the side yard I have planted tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers and they are looking wonderful right now.

Important Decisions keep you From Making Mistakes

Sometimes it is better to reason an important decision because in the long run you might make the wrong decision. Many people in the world today make rash decisions and then complain about the consequences of their decision. I have had to make many decisions by thinking about the consequences of that decision. With all the important decisions that you have to make throughout your life why not take the extra time to make the right decision so that you do not regret the decision that you make. Sometimes you may have to go with your gut when the situation is right. Throughout life you have to stop and think about everything and whether or not you are making the right decision. People have to rationalize and reason in order to come up with the right and successful decision based on the facts. I have known people that make decisions without getting all the facts about the situation. Without all the facts you cannot make a rational decision based on half of the facts. In college they teach you the methods of finding out how to get the right decision with everything that you do in life.
