Nature of Logic and Perception
What is the nature of logic and perception? The first step is to discover the meaning of logic and perception to understand the nature and how it relates to critical thinking. According to Dictionary.com Unabridged, the meaning of logic is “the system or principles of reasoning applicable to any branch of knowledge or study (2006).” According to The American Heritage Dictionary, the meaning of perception is “insight, intuition, or knowledge gained by perceiving (2006).” Continuing on is my experience with how my perception of a reality situation was far from the actual reality, what I thought was going on, what was truly going on, why there was a difference, what I learned, and how my critical thinking process changed.

Dean and I also fought a great deal and I did not think Dean and I were ready to make such a commitment. Finally I gave in thinking maybe a baby would bring us closer and help us grow out of our immature lifestyles.
July 16, 2008 was the day I found out I was pregnant and gave my boyfriend the good news, and he was ecstatic. During my first trimester, Dean was very supportive and so good to me that I could not have been happier. I had a set schedule, I would go to work Monday through Friday, come home and clean the house, cook dinner, and wait for Dean to come home from work, except Monday nights when I had to go to school. I did things I never thought I would see myself...
