2017 Chromosome 18 Conference 7.10.17 #3

Borrowed from Camilla                                                         On the airplane waiting to take off.

 

We woke up early that morning to get to the airport and go through security. I went up the stairs to get to the flights while Camilla and Thomas went up the escalator. We got on the airplane right on time thankfully. Sadly, one of the plane engines wouldn’t start. We got to see a beautiful sunrise while we were sitting on the plane waiting for them to fix the plane engine. After the beautiful sunrise, the plane lifted off the ground.

We sat on the plane for about 3 ½ hours and watched clouds. I played a few offline games on my tablet.  I also finished a Hawaiian magazine while on the plane. I got Fritos® chips and honey roasted peanuts which I ate along with honey roasted cashews, apricots, and cereal. To go with that snack, I got some apple juice and water which I drank during the flight.

I also tried to see Lake Michigan when we were about to land but it was too cloudy for that. When we got off the plane in Chicago Midway International Airport, we walked to an elevator and got off on the ground level of the airport.

Waiting for our hotel room.                                Borrowed from Camilla

Camilla found our luggage and then we used a Lyft taxi to get us to Naperville’s Chicago Marriott where we met a few 18q and 18p- friends in the lobby while waiting to get a hotel room. Once we went up to our hotel room, we started unpacking and ate our lunch/snack that Camilla got us from The Artisan Table (the restaurant that’s in the hotel).

After settling in, I went down to the lobby with Thomas to see if any of my 18p- and 18q- friends were there. Camilla came down a little after I went up to tell her that it was almost dinner time. Camilla ran into several of her friends. I ran into a lot of friends at that time including Katie Baker. We took the Marriot shuttle down to Downtown Naperville to have dinner at an Irish pub named Quigley’s.

Once we got back from Quigley’s, I went up to the hotel room to put some things away. After that, I got a little lost trying to find the pool so I sat down and texted Camilla to find out. Although that wasn’t much help, I found the pool much to my luck. Just out the window, I could see a thunderstorm forming.

After we were done checking out the pool, Camilla and I sat on the hotel’s deck outside the hotel’s main entrances when it starting raining. After a few hours sitting there, we headed up to the room to get ready to go to bed.  I also let Macy Miller (a 18p- friend of mine) know that I was at the hotel and going to bed.

July 12th, 2017:

I woke up around 8:00 am and wondered where I was for a second. I remembered shortly after 2 seconds that I was in Naperville.  I wondered where Camilla was. So I messaged Camilla where she was and she had been out on the hotel deck and was right outside hotel room door. I accidentally woke Thomas up while I took a quick bath and watched a thunderstorm while messaging Macy.

I found out that Macy was already in Indiana. After the storm blew away, I prepared to go down to the lobby to see if any friends were there. I managed to catch Rebecca Parker on the elevator. We ate lunch at the Artisan Table. I went up to the room to relax some and check updates from Macy before going down with Camilla to run a quick trip to the bank.

When we got back, we ran into Macy and her family. I went up to the room to relax for a second before heading straight down to the lobby to hang out with Macy.  I hung out with Macy a little more before going with her parents to get registered and shortly, Camilla and I went in to get name tags and hung out with Macy when she came out of the registry room. I stayed down in the lobby with Macy until right before dinner when I went up the elevator to get my sunglasses and quickly went back down to Macy, her family, Camilla, and Thomas.

Macy & I                                                                                                                                        Borrowed from Camilla

Gorgeous clouds in Naperville.                                                                                                                                                                                Taken by me

We went out to dinner with Macy and her family at Bricks Wood Fired Pizza. We saw Katie Baker and Rebecca Parker there as well. We spent an hour there waiting for everyone to finish eating including myself.  Once we got back, we went back in the registry room for the silent auction. After the silent auction was over, I hung out with Macy in the registry room.

Macy wanted to know where the pool was so she could go swimming. So Macy got her parents’ permission so I could show Macy where the pool was. As Macy and I headed out of the registry room, we ran into some of Camilla’s friends. I helped Macy make friends while we walked to the pool entrance.

Once I showed Macy the pool, we headed back to the registry room so Macy could get permission to go swimming. Macy and I went to our hotel rooms to get our swimsuits on. I was one second late but I made it on time.

After Macy soaked her feet a little and dried off, she went up to her hotel room with her parents. I was drying off when she said good night to me. I went outside on the hotel deck with Camilla after drying off. After being outside for an hour, I went up to our hotel room to get ready for bed and go to sleep.

July 13th, 2017:

When I woke up, I once again wondered where Camilla was. This time, she had stayed on the hotel deck outside. I went down to her and I sat in an outdoor chair for 3 to 4 hours before going up to the room again until lunch.

The registry served lunch and after I finished eating, I hung out with Macy for a half hour until Macy went out for bowling and pizza.  After that, I hung around with some friends didn’t want to go. Camilla and I also had a quick walk around the outside of the hotel. I also hung out at the pool.

After lunch, I hung out with Macy a little before she went to the self-advocate room.  I kept reading until Macy came back out and we hung out. We also went out to dinner at Jason’s Deli. After dinner, I hung out with Macy and her father. I also watched them play Monopoly Deal.

I slept in late but managed to get down to the lobby before lunch. Again we went with Macy and her family to Jason’s Deli. After lunch, we separated ways for a little bit. During that time, I met Chris Ulmer and he interviewed me. Shortly after that interview, Camilla and I went up to the room to get ready for the group picture and the dance with the dinner. Camilla didn’t have time to style my hair before the group picture. I accidentally put on a too tight dress but didn’t have time to change into a more comfortable dress. After the group picture, Camilla and I went up to the hotel room so I could change into a more comfortable dress. Camilla styled my hair to look pretty. After I finished getting ready, I headed down to the lobby to see if Macy was there. I was about to get back on the elevator to ride up to go to the restroom when Macy got off the elevator and I made the decision to go to the closest restroom in the lobby instead. Macy and I chatted for a few minutes.

Macy went up to ask her parents if they felt like playing Monopoly Deal. Of course, I watched. A few hours later, Macy headed up to the room with her parents so her parents could get ready. A few minutes later though, Macy came back down and she suggested we take a walk on a few hotel room floors. So we walked around on the 2nd and 3rd floor until Rebecca messaged me asking where I was. Macy and I headed back down to the lobby to the ballroom for dinner. We took our seats and many friends took pictures of us while we waited for dinner to come. After I finished dinner, I went on the dance floor for a little bit before heading to the restroom. I came back and was ready to dance more. Here are a few of the songs that played: Let It Go, We Are Family and Y.M.C.A. We danced for 3 hours straight while Macy went to bed 1 hour into the dancing. So Macy and I said our goodbyes. I was tired and could barely move or hear when the dance finally ended. So I got ready for bed and went to sleep.

I woke up late so I ended up having brunch. After I took a quick shower, we waited for the Marriott shuttle to take us near the Naperville Riverwalk. After we finished exploring, 2017 Chromosome 18 Conference 7.16.17 #40we went back to the hotel to wait for Lyft to come pick us up and drop us off at the Chicago Midway Airport.

The Last Cookie: What Bellina and Mermaidia Will Do Next

Hey, everyone! The final part of The Last Cookie was delayed because I forgotten until Friday. So here it is:

Mermaidia sat down with Bellina. While Mermaidia and Bellina were eating their half of a cookie, they began to talk. Here is one of the things Mermaidia said, “I waited 108 hours to find out whether you would say yes.”

After they were done talking, they went to bed. When they woke up in the morning, they were very proud. After that, when they wanted a cookie they used the technique that Mermaidia used. You can use this very technique.

This is the end of part 4. Tune in for more stories, facts, photos, and more! Go to Camilla’s, Thomas’s, and Team TLC’s blog here.

Learn About Empathy, Sympathy, and Compassion

Hey there! Want to learn more about compassion, sympathy and empathy? You’ve come to the right place!

Compassion actually means “to suffer together.” Among emotion researchers, it is defined as the feeling that rises when you are approached with someone suffering and feel motivated to relieve that person’s suffering. Compassion isn’t the same as empathy though the thoughts are related.

While empathy refers more formally to their ability to take the perspective of and feel the emotions of a person, compassion is when those feelings and thoughts include the desire to help. Altruism is the kind and selfless behavior often prompted by feelings of compassion, though a person can feel compassion without acting on the compassion, and altruism can’t always motivated by compassion. While people who doubt may leave compassion as touchy-feely or not logical, scientists have started to map the biological basis of compassion, suggesting its deep evolutionary meaning.

Some research has shown that when anyone feel compassion, anyone’s heart rate slows down, anyone secretes the bonding hormone oxytocin, and regions of the brain linked to feelings of pleasure light up, which often results in their wanting to approach and care for other people. Scientific research into the measurable benefits of compassion is very young. Preliminary findings suggest that being compassionate can improve health, well-being, and relationships with people.

Many scientists believe that compassion might be vital to the survival of their species, and they’re finding that its advantages can be increased through targeted exercises and practice. Here are some of the most top exciting findings from this research so far.

Compassion makes us feel good. Compassionate action (e.g., giving to charity) activates pleasure circuits in the brain, and compassion training programs even very brief ones strengthen brain circuits for pleasure and reward and lead to lasting increases in self-reported happiness. Being compassionate—tuning in to other people in a kind and loving manner—can reduce risk of heart disease by boosting the positive effects of the Vagus Nerve, which helps to slow our heart rate.

One compassion training program has found that it makes people more resilient to stress; it lowers stress hormones in the blood and saliva and strengthens the immune response. Brain scans during loving-kindness meditation which directs compassion toward suffering, suggest that on average, compassionate people’s minds wander less about what has gone wrong in their lives, or might go wrong in the future; as a result, they’re happier.

Compassion helps make caring parents. Brain scans show that when people experience compassion, their brains activate in neural systems known to support parental nurturance and other caregiving behaviors. Compassion helps make better spouses.

Compassionate people are more optimistic and supportive when communicating with others. Compassion helps make better friends. Studies of college friendships show that when one friend sets the goal to support the other compassionately, both friends experience greater satisfaction and growth in the relationship growing compassion for one person makes us less vindictive toward others.

Restraining feelings of compassion chips away at our commitment to moral principles. Workers who receive more compassion in their workplace see themselves, their co-workers, and their organization in a more positive light, report feeling more positive emotions like joy and contentment, and are more committed to their jobs. More compassionate societies those that take care of their most vulnerable members, assist other nations in need, and have children who perform more acts of kindness—are the more happier ones.

Compassionate people are more socially adept, making them less vulnerable to loneliness; loneliness has been shown to cause stress and harm the immune system. They often talk about some people as being more compassionate than others, but research suggests compassion isn’t something you’re born with or not. Instead, it can be strengthened through targeted exercises and practice.

Here are some specific, science-based activities for cultivating compassion from their new site, Greater Good in Action: Feeling supported: Think about the people you turn to when you’re distressed and recall times when you’ve felt comforted by them, which research says can help us to feel more compassionate toward others. Compassion meditation: Cultivate compassion toward a loved one, yourself, a neutral person, and even an enemy.

Put a human face on suffering: When reading the news, look for profiles of specific individuals and try to imagine what their lives have been like if you read the news. Eliciting altruism: Create reminders of connectedness. Compassion training programs, such as those out of Emory University and Stanford University, are revealing how we can boost feelings of compassion in ourselves and others.

Here are some of the best tips to emerge out of those programs, as well as other research. Look for commonalities: Seeing yourself as similar to others increases feelings of compassion. A recent study shows that something as simple as tapping your fingers to the same rhythm with a stranger increases compassionate behavior.

Calm your inner worrier: When we let our mind run wild with fear in response to someone else’s pain (e.g., What if that happens to me?), we inhibit the biological systems that enable compassion. The practice of mindfulness can help us feel safer in these situations, facilitating compassion. Encourage cooperation, not competition, even through subtle cues: A seminal study showed that describing a game as a “Community Game” led players to cooperate and share a reward evenly; describing the same game as a “Wall Street Game” made the players more cutthroat and less honest.

This can be a valuable lesson for teachers, who can promote cooperative learning in the classroom. See people as individuals (not abstractions): When presented with an appeal from an anti-hunger charity, people were more likely to give money after reading about a starving girl than after reading statistics on starvation—even when those statistics were combined with the girl’s story. Don’t play the blame game: When we blame others for their misfortune, we feel less tenderness and concern toward them.

Respect your inner hero: When we think we’re capable of making a difference, we’re less likely to curb our compassion. Notice and savor how good it feels to be compassionate. Studies have shown that practicing compassion and engaging in compassionate action bolsters brain activity in areas that signal reward.

To cultivate compassion in kids, start by modeling kindness: Research suggests compassion is contagious, so if you want to help compassion spread in the next generation, lead by example. Curb inequality: Research suggests that as people feel a greater sense of status over others, they feel less compassion. Don’t be a sponge: When we completely take on other people’s suffering as our own, we risk feeling personally distressed, threatened, and overwhelmed; in some cases, this can even lead to burnout.

Instead, try to be receptive to other people’s feelings without adopting those feelings as your own. Empathy is at its simplest awareness of the feelings and emotions of other people. It is a key element of Emotional Intelligence, the link between self and others, because it is how we as individuals understand what others are experiencing as if we were feeling it ourselves.

Empathy goes far beyond sympathy, which might be considered feeling for someone. Empathy is feeling with that person through the use of imagination. Empathy is feeling someone else’s feelings and you understand.

Empathy is feeling sorry for someone. Empathy is also experienced by almost everyone at 1 point in their life especially autism people. (No offence for autism people). Compassion is actually love in disguise.

If your loved one is in a hospital, war, hurt, sick, or dying. Ask a friend or parent to help you and they might show that they are compassionate for you or they might show empathy for you. They might show sympathy too.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post. There might be a Emotions With Animals edition blog post of this topic!

Enchanted Egyptian Beauty

Hey there, everyone! Remember all the years in the past,  when I decided to sell copies of the Egyptian Eye? I decided to sell the copies of my Egyptian Eye again this year. Here is a poem about it.

Triangular prisms sprout rainbows
From the tip of a triangle, triangles peak everywhere
Amazing colorful teeth pointing toward a catchy circle
It is an Egyptian Beauty!

I hope you enjoyed my poem!


About the Egyptian Eye:

I made this Egyptian Eye masterpiece when I was young. (I can’t remember what date I finished it and started it). Camilla mentioned that it looked like an Egyptian Eye. So the name became Egyptian Eye. I used the Egyptian Eye drawing in 2010 for raising money for getting to the conference in San Antonio, TX. I decided that it went so well that I did it for the conference last year in Salt Lake City, UT. It was a great success last year and I wanted to do that idea again this year for San Antonio. Find out more at http://lilliandarnell.com/lillians-art/ for the pricing. Thanks to all of you got a copy of the Egyptian Eye.


 

About Me:

I am the artist of the Egyptian Eye. I am a soon to be abstract artist of abstract rocks, paintings, and drawings. Find out more about about me in my About Lillian page. Thank you!

Emotions With Animals: Sad Cats

Hey there, everyone! Welcome back to Emotions With Animals. These posts are to help with learning purposes, animal lovers, and to help with emotions. I recently posted Mindful GoslingsA Mindful Mermaid StoryHappy Dogs, and A Happy Fairy.

Cats yowl and protects itself by wrapping his tail, crouching low, holding ears in a fearful or cautious manner, and glum whiskers.

People sometimes make noises like cats do when they’re sad. People try to protect themselves by forcing the tears into a lump in the throat. People will be silent and thinking. The people will have a sad smile, half smile, or sad face.

Here’s some tips of how not to be sad if you feel like you are sad.

It’s okay to be sad. You don’t have to be happy unless you want to get out of the sadness stage.

Find something that makes you laugh. Look at someone who’s hilarious to you, smile, read something, watch something, or draw something funny.

Keep in mind that I post Emotions with Animals every Friday. Look for my weekly emotion story!

Also, don’t forget to check out Thomas‘s blog post on his website. It’s about Thomas selling copies of his painted rocks. If you wish, go and buy a rock or 2. Find out more details at the link above.  Check out Camilla’s blog at Mindful Musings and she’ll give you more emotion tips and anything.

Green Hair streaked Butterfly

Facts:

An endangered butterfly, the Green Hairstreak Butterfly is isolated to three small parts of the city: Hawk Hill Park,Rocky Outcrop Park, and a small portion of the Presidio. Green Hairstreak larvae feed exclusively on the Coastal Buckwheat and conservation projects have focused on creating a corridor of these plants to “bridge” the three populations and prevent inbreeding. There are 50 green hair streaked butterflies left!

Explanation: Thomas just looked randomly and came along this.

Guinea Pig

Facts:

Guinea pigs are tail-less rodents that are native to the west coast of South America and since the mid-1800′s, laboratories have used them for research. The correct name for guinea pigs is Cavy, pronounced “kay-vee”.
Guinea pigs usually weigh around 3 ounces at birth, around 1-2 pounds full grown, and live for 5-6 years. An adult will measure 8-10 inches from the tip of its nose to the end of its rump. Their hair comes in a wide range of colors and the hair may be long, short or short and curly. Cavies have a very good sense of smell and sensitive hearing. They love to vocalize with squeals, chirps, squeaks, and whistles. Although not known for their intelligence, they do recognize their owners and will seek them out and return affection.

Explanation: Lovey wanted this because she doesn’t have another guinea pig friend and she’s worried about other guinea pigs.

Notice: Guinea pigs aren’t endangered!

Poem Starter

Hi there! Sorry I haven’t written any posts since last month but the most recent one I did was Sky In Reno, NV 2/20/14 . Starting today I’ll start sharing my poems to you. What I was inspired by was myself wanted spring so I had decided to start a poem collection. I only do it in March and the night I started was March 3, 2013. The poems will be back every spring and even new edition ones perhaps. Just maybe you could have one of your own. Just let your brain take you into what you want to write or type.
