https://www.psychologyinaction.org/psychology-in-action-1/early-adulthood This article is about the somewhat newly recognized developmental stage of early adulthood. Jeffrey Arnett, a researcher at the University of Maryland, proposed that early adulthood be recognized as a distinct stage of development in 2000. Early adulthood is a period where individuals are graduating high school and either going on to college, joining the workforce, or something different all together. With so many external changes occurring, it is no wonder that internally, things are still developing. Research has shown that white natter in the brain, (the axons and myelin sheaths that physically connect brain regions and transmit messages from one part of the brain to another) develops until into the twenties, with some pathways reaching peak maturity as late as age forty. One of these white matter tracts is the uncinate fasciculus. This connects the limbic system (associated with emotion and episodic memory) to the frontal lobe (decision making, reasoning, planning). The article mentions this is why a twenty year old and a forty year old think differently. I always assumed this was because of different life experiences, I never thought about the brain being in different developmental stages.

This article talks on how cohabitation increases the chances of divorce, domestic abuse, and poor quality marriages. It tells how those who live together then get married usually did not discuss marriage but slowly became forced into it. This could be from many factors such as pregnancy, cheaper living, and no other chances of love. It also talks on how these people have the same mind set after marriage as they did during cohabitation. So the problems that may arise during marriage may not seem as stressful or drastic as before marriage. This can also lead to the married couple not being able to discuss situations better with one another because they have a history of not planning or discussing situations. This article also mentioned that those couples who lived together after engagement did not experience the same problems because they already had chosen the to be married before living together. So those who chose cohabitation before engagement and skip straight to marriage are at a higher risk of being divorced or having a problematic marriage. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/in-the-name-love/201303/does-cohabitation-lead-more-divorces

https://youtu.be/m5HQamrXlSY This is an amazing TED talk. It's is a women's story through leukemia. She goes through her story and explains that the darkest days really didn't come until she was cured. She didn't know how to re-enter the world, who she was anymore. She goes on a road trip around the United States and visits all of these different people who had written to her blog while she was sick. They all had different issues, from being on death row to having a dibilitating disease their whole life. In the end she learns that nobody is never really whole we are all looking for something that doesn't exist. We need to be happy with the in-between.

Adults with Down syndrome have a range of needs, abilities and desires just like everybody else. Some learn to drive, desire relationships, and learn to almost live entirely on their own. Others who have Down syndrome more seriously need daily care. Doctors are constantly learning about their health issues they face as they get older. 

These adults have many options on how they want to live. Some stay at home because it makes sense to them, some stay in an apartment on their own with the proper help, and some stay in a home with other people with down syndrome. Some of these adults go to college and others get a part time job. Social activities help them feel fulfilled with life. It's important for them to get involved in sports, hobbies and other interests. Many with down syndrome desire to date, have relationships, and get married. As they get older, they tend to have more mental health issues like depression. They also usually get health problems earlier in age. It is a must to help them get regular check ups to stay on top of keeping them healthy. 

I love people with down syndrome. In high school, I helped with Partners Club, and loved to get to spend time with them every single day. They really are the most loving people in the world. The way they get excited to see you and spend time with you really is a blessing.

Unfortunately we will all have to deal with a loss at some point. Death is something that happens to everyone and it happens everyday. There are 5 stages to grieving after the loss of a loved one. At first it will be the denial stage, this is when you can't believe that it is happening to you. The second stage is anger, people can be angry for many reasons at this moment in time. Your emotions are so high during hard times, it is very easy to become angry. Stage three is bargaining, this is where you will question if you would've done something sooner could you have saved their life. Stage four is the depression stage, unfortunately we have to go through this hard time and it can be very hard on the human brain dealing with death. Last but not least stage five is acceptance. This is when we finally come to the reality that we lost a loved one. This can sometimes be the hardest part, knowing we will never see them again. It is very important to deal with death and grieving in a proper way. I found a nice article on grieving https://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/
