community I might be greatly appreciated and respected within my community. We notice that within our twenty-first society we have different roles and thoughts about the elderly individuals of our society. One is that elderly people are thought of as having wisdom and experience. So I believe that once I have reached the age of 50 years that many people might come to me for different things or for different advice about specific things because I will be considered wiser and more experienced than other individuals within my community. The next aspect is the effect of retirement after an individual reaches the age of 66. This is a very fragile stage because every elderly individual acts differently to the concept of retirement. There are some individuals who are able to enjoy the free time and spend it doing different things such as finding a hobby. Then there are others who are had their life mostly centralized around working, so that when they retire they might feel out of place or lost because of all the free time that they now have. Another sociological aging that I might experience after I reach the age 50 I will be mostly focused on spending a lot of time with my family members. At this time I would hope that I might have some grandkids from my immediate family so that I can support them as either a family member or a role model that they can look up to. The next category that comes after is life after death, and this is basically about my specific beliefs about life after death. I am a Catholic and we have a different belief about exactly what happens to an individual after they die. Our belief is that there basically is an afterlife after what we live on earth. So how we behave on planet earth will in the end determine whether we will end up in heaven or in hell. Then my own hopes is that I die a peaceful death, and after I have died that my family members will celebrate my life and not grieve as long because that is

one of the hardest thing that’s I’ve noticed when an elderly individual dies within someone’s family. I would not like them to be to upset or cry about the fact that I am gone, and if anything they can celebrate my birthday if it makes them feel better, but I would prefer that my family does not grieve too much about my death. In the end we all realize that aging is a process that everyone must go through and no one person has the ability to stop or slow it down. That is why we must take care of our bodies and make sure that it stays healthy and to live every single day like it’s the last day.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
