Personal Reflection/Observation Assignment–Emerging Adult Issues (Needs to be done in 28 hours!)

In a 2-3 page (double-line spaced) reflective essay, outline your progress toward adulthood in terms of relationships, career, and becoming financially independent. Notably, a number of you in this class are at the very beginnings of this life stage, so your observations may be more of the nature of projecting yourself into the future, while some are able to look back on this life stage in reflection, and will be examining these aspects in retrospect. However, trace or outline the milestones of your own spiritual, physical, cognitive, socio-emotional and personality development in this newly identified life stage. What factors are/were significant for you as you emerge/d into adulthood? Identify and thoughtfully integrate significant factors such as social clock issues, identity status, search for intimacy, and the impact of contextual factors such as cohort, SES, gender, cultural and familial factors and their effects on your developmental trajectory into emerging adulthood.
