Standard One - I was intrigued by this map's interpretation of the United States, where its' states' populations are made proportional to the corresponding physical land mass. I was surprised that Ohio's population was actually that large. Reddit Username, Alexthedinosaur. (2014, Sep. 25). What If Every State's Population Matched Its Physical Size?

Standard Six - I come from a European-American ethnic background. My family has lived here for at least four and five generations. We are of the Christian religion - my parents are protestant and I am Mormon.

Standard Eleven - The illegal drug trade routes stem from the base of the continent - Mexico - and move north through highways towards every major city in the United States. Retrieved from http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2012/11/transportation-networks-lead-to-us-hubs.html

Standard Two - Below is a mental map of my job. It notes the various locations of racks of merchandise I am responsible for maintaining stock of.
