Former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden observed, "Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are."  Briefly describe your character and your reputation.  What similarities & differences do you see between the two?

1. Journal
2. Evolution, adaptation, and the Jonathan's #phonar lecture

5. Chaucer & Prologue to Canterbury Tales
6. You are such a character!
