MY CODES OF HONOR.........
Codes of Honor Don Quixote in America What would happen if Don Quixote were to be placed in the world today? First of all, since Don Quixote suspected moving objects such as windmills as a foe, he might think that objects like cars are also foes. Since there are many objects that moves and make noises today, Don Quixote will have a very hard time controlling himself from attacking the objects. By this, the object will be broken, causing problems for the owner. Perhaps, Don Quixote might accidently hurt a person. Also, America is very diverse in ethnicity, so Don Quixote might think of other races as a foe too, and attack them. This will cause a panic to the people of the region, and Don Quixote will be punished for the crime. However, Don Quixote will not understand the reason for the punishment. At Don Quixote’s era, there were division of class, and since Don Quixote was a noble, he might treat some people as he had treated Sancho because of their occupation or looks. Overall, Don Quixote and the people around him will both suffer from his actions.
My Codes of Honor “Conflicts involving these codes happened in the past, exist today, and will always exist in the future.” When people are working in a group, they often tend to depend on others for their own work, leaving the other person with double amount of work. When I saw this, I decided that it was not right to gain credit for what someone else did. When each individual person finishes their work of their portion, everyone else gets a fair share of work. Even though you will have to work hard and sometimes, it is hard not to depend on someone else for my work, the outcome will be a fine product, and I will gain respect from my group members for my responsibility. However, I also do not let other people depend on me for their work when it is clearly visible that they are taking an advantage of me. I do not wish to depend on other people for the work that I am responsible for. Especially being a girl, I face situations everyday where I could easily start gossiping. Once, I had a friend who started gossiping whenever she talked to me. Naturally, I would gossip with her. When I gossiped though, I did not feel like it was right. So after a hard thought, I stopped being friends with her. One other time, my longdistant friend contacted me for a long time. She said that she thought I was different, because I did not gossip. Even though I lost a friend because I didn’t gossip, I also gained a true friend. By not gossiping, I did not hurt other people, so I had an easier time making friends. Whenever a new school started, I wished that things would be like it was the previous year. I would want the same friends, teachers, school, and environment as the previous year. Especially this year, I really wished that I was still in my old middle school. I really enjoyed my school last year, but I thought that life at IA this year was terrible. When I thought about it though, I realized that there were great things last year, but there were also other things that I always complained about. In conclusion after a long thought, I decided that the time that I have now is the best time that I will ever have. Even though thinking positive was not always easy and made me give up my dream of a perfect year, I had a much better time getting used to the environment and making new friends. Also, as I felt better about myself, the people around me also got more comfortable with me. Thinking positive was a great solution for this situation. Although it is true that it is very hard to live by some of my codes of honor, I wish that other people would also follow my them. I have decided to live by these codes of honor mostly when I thought that a person was hurting other person or being rude. Some were actions, and some were manners. When this happened, the person that was hurt did not necessarily look so bad, but the person who was hurting them lowered their own level of humanity by their actions. I know that I do not always have the right judgment. Once, I did not know that I was gossiping until my friend told me to stop gossiping. I was first very shocked when she told me that, but I later thanked her for letting me know. Like me, people do demand me to live by their code of honor, and I am glad that I have friends who can tell me what I am doing wrong. I had many times when I had a hard time doing my best and not being arrogant at the same time. When I feel like I deserve something extra for my hard work, I start being proud. Often when this happens, I am thinking that I have done great, so I should let other people know too. The truth is though; I didn’t have to let other people know. One of my role model is responsible for all the charity and the good work that he has done, yet he doesn’t put his name on the checks that he gives out. I have always wanted be like a wholesome person that he is, but I have not reached that level yet. Definitely, following my codes of honor, I think that I would get along with people even if I were magically transported back to Arthurian times. Time does not matter for all ten of my codes of honor. Conflicts involving these codes happened in the past, exist today, and will always exist in the future. Because they are mostly toward other people, if I follow it well, I will have an easier time making successful relationship with them. People will hopefully find me well and respect me too with their codes of honor.
