Its been almost two months since I left the Northern coast OF Spain to start an internship in the dry heat OF Texas. It no joke what they say. The Southwest is hot, and luckily has more tacos than I ever imagine. The past two months have been something of a whirlwind for me, causing me to momentarily neglect efforts make with my Blog to focus bit on the real, non-digital, world. For starters, I leave Santander a week or so before most OF my peers DO because my brother get marriedand to be honest, what wedding without a bachelor party? I hit ground running as soon as my flight landed in Charleston from Bilbao, and each day, I was running errands to get ready for wedding, spending time with my new nephew, or attending events associated with the big day. By time the festivities were over, it was time to pack whatever junk I had unorganized over the past two weeks into my car in preparation for my 18 hour drive to Dallas. At this point, my body was exhausted and I still hadnt figured out my permanent living situation yet. I decided to reach out to Fraternity brothers in Dallas who may be willing to let me crash. Aside from a few mishaps along the way, and moving in to my own one-bedroom apartment, I am now two-and-ahalf short weeks away from completing my brand leadership internship for multicultural and Hispanic-focused advertising agency, Dieste Inc. Where this Road may lead, I am unsure, but I am positive that experience I had in Spain has help me to comfortably transition seamlessly into New city, to make New friends, and to integrate myself into New daily routine. As always, 'll keep YOU post about my future travels, but for now, thanks for reading Another Travel Blog! I am writing this because people are beginning to discuss their plans after their contracts as auxiliares end. I must say, after fair amounts of deliberation, I have decided that I will not be returning. It has been an incredible year of traveling and getting to know Santander, but I know it is time for me to return to my life in the United States. It was a difficult decision to think about at first, and at times I still find myself more conflicted than ever. When the weather is gorgeous and the streets of Santander are teeming with life, almost nothing could be better. Life over here is grand, laid back, and I am immersed in foreign languages and culture that is virtually impossible in the USA. Why would I ever want to return to the real world OF insurance payments and office cubicles? Simply put, first reason for returning is that life go on back in the US. I moved to Spain and I put life on hold indefinitely until I was ready to take on what come next. Whether that turned out to be one year or two, I was willing to take plunge.

Be assertive

As mentioned before, this brochure approaches assertiveness from a Western culture perspective. While we hope these tips will enhance YOUR assertiveness while living, socializing, and communicating in US culture, we recognize that there are important variations in interpersonal COMMUNICATION across cultures that impact what and how of assertive COMMUNICATION. For example, traditional Asian cultures value subtlety and indirectness in COMMUNICATION. More direct or confrontational styles may be viewed as disrespectful and lacking in understanding. Meaning attributes to nonverbal COMMUNICATION may vary across cultures. For instance, individuals from Latino, African / African American, Arab, or South American backgrounds may tend to stand much closer together when conversing than what is typical for Europeans or Americans. In terms of facial expressions, while demonstrating YOUR inner feelings through YOUR outward expressions is usually helpful, it is important to remember that in some cultures, restraint of strong emotions such as anger and sadness is considered to be a sign of wisdom and maturity. Also, there may be differences across culture in terms of the appropriate tone of voice. Many Europeans and Americans tend to speak more loudly than people from Asian countries, but may be considered soft-spoken compared to Arabs. Finally, behaviors used to show that one is listening may also vary by culture. Some cultures may not always look at their conversation partner, nod their heads, or say uh huh to indicate that they are listening. Remember that what is considered appropriately assertive can vary by culture. Be thoughtful about how YOUR own cultural background and those of others may play a role.

Go with the flow

In recent years, key texts by members of Situationist International, mid-20 century collective of avant-garde Marxists, have been resurrected as prescient catalogs of our growth-orient, image-saturate, web-base media ecology. In particular, Guy Debords ' concept of spectacles as social relation among people, mediated by images, has seen renewed popularity as a tool for understanding how social media bring people together on a global scale, but only as abstract interrelation of siloed individuals. Pervasive presence that supplants active experience with passive identification, spectacle subsumes experience of being into one of the appearing-To-be. As our conceptions of self, society, and the material world are increasingly tethered to simulacra, they are more easily manipulated by public relations firms and those at levers of capital. Mid-century Pariss dominant visual culture was far less sophisticated than that of the internet global information hierarchy, but Situationist prescriptions speak to problems that resonate today. They seek to undermine infinite reproduction of identical pathways; puncture monotony with spontaneous situations; and ultimately build awareness of how power constrains imagination and possibility in everyday life. One central Situationist practice is psychogeography, described in the 1950s journal Les Levres Nues as study of precise laws and specific effects of geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on emotions and behavior of individuals. Psychogeography, conceptual mapping of spatial emotional effects, find practice in derive, process of interrogating space by moving through it with conscious relationship to desires and psychogeographic features. Situationists apply these ideas to physical geography, but they are easily redeployed in online environments, where they help illuminate how digital architecture conditions think and action as well as locate points of potential disruption. Rather than using the Internet to access specific node, accomplish predetermined task, or scroll passively, someone on digital derive navigates consciously, paying special attention to interlinkages, design, and how attention is guide. Practice not only uncovers operations of power in digital space, but focuses attention on overlooked virtual infrastructure, helping practitioners experience themselves as active participants in vast system of networks rather than atomize individuals on bubbled islands. Temporarily subverting spectacle, digital derives open avenues for genuine social engagement, rather than bare consumption and regurgitation of visual abstractions. Importantly, it is also just fun to play on the Internet in this way and very easy! You can derive for hours, or a few minutes. Personally, I find it a welcome break from the repetition of passive scrolling through narrow corridors of coercive platforms. It strikes me how effortlessly Google has integrated their search monopoly into a browser that dwarf its largest competitor by factor of seven, consolidating layers of transmission while concealing their distinctions from end-users. It seems quaint that FTC once went after Microsoft for bundling Internet Explorer with the operating system.
