By interviewing someone you do not know both let me to step out my comfort zone and learnt how to ask extend the answers by asking detail questions.
Things We Had Done
Fluency, flexibility, originality, elaboration.
Rejection & Ambiguity
Get rejected within my safety zone but push me out of my comfort zone. Deal things under an ambiguity situation.
Cone Of Learning & Forgetting Curve
We all agree that we need to review the course materials we had covered during class time, and need to spent extra time outside of class to refresh it so that we could prevent our brain from forgetting things.
By doing this it requires me to spend twice as much time as I needed before but I think it is worth since it helps me to understand the materials better.
After the discussion we found that we need to combined what we read, hear, see, say and do together to be a active student that could better participate in class.
I found that C. of L. really helped me on my other courses since by combining all my five senses during a particular time increased my attention.
C. of L.
Through the week 2 activities, I learnt that always keep my mind opened, and do not negate yourself on doing anything. Do not afraid of failure because failure teaches you to be better.
The important of keeping an open minded is really important that it might be change my whole idea for viewing failure. With an open mind, I believe that failure made me growth.
Our curiosities also gone as we grow up because we are afraid of asking stupid questions. Through the activity of interviewing someone and ask open minded and detail questions, I think I learnt how to extend the answers for the questions so that could get more useful information.
Mindset & Curiosity
During one of my interviews the interviewer let me to sale a rubber band to a life guard. Based on all these creativity that we did during this class I came out the idea that use the rubber band as a catapult so that life guard could use this with a plastic ball to warn swimmers who did not follow the swimming pool rules instead of whistling. All the interviewers claps for me because all of them had experiences on being a life guard and this might really helped them to warn those people.

While brainstorming some changes that could made in my daily life is really hard, compared to write down your habit exercise, since this one forced me to think out of the box, and get out of my comfort zone to do something normally I will not do.
Curious Habit Tracker
By noted down our daily habits is pretty simple since I did not need to think. After wrote down almost a full page I noticed that I really did so many (boring) things everyday.
Things that I did to challenge myself are:
1. Making myself a dinner since to save time on doing homework I usually have my dinner in the dining hall.
2. I went to the mini Mega Fair for the first time even though this is my third semester spent in MU.
3. Considered the issue of safety I usually stayed in my dorm during evening but I went to uptown at 11 p.m. with my friends and experienced the night view of uptown in Oxford, where the bars were full of people.

Try some new things are not that terrible as what I thought, (even though went to uptown at 11pm was still scary,) and I think through this activity it showed to me that there are still lots of ways to live my life. Through this new but exciting activity I think I gained new understanding for divergence, since before it was just a word that means make some huge changes among your life.
