just giving an over view of the electronic portfolios that we created for the
class. I thought that I did an awful job on a writing assignment and I got it
back today and I got a 17 out of 20 I will take an 85. I always doubt myself
when it gets down to the end of the semester and I worry that I am going to get
bad marks. I need to be more optimistic and positive and believe that I am
successful, because it will improve my confidence.
I gave a speech and I was really happy that he didn’t grade us on our
performance. I was doing okay talking about my career objectives even though I
honestly have no idea what I want to do with my life, but then I remember that I
am already doing something everyday life is the journey not where you end up. I
also talked about the self-assessment tests that we took and how I am an early
bird an how most people don’t like to be up at 7:30 but I like to have the
entire day in front of me. I view myself as a planner. I like to be organized
and plan events even though it becomes very frustrating when people don’t get
back to you. I volunteer a lot which is my way of have extra things on my resume
I have had the same job for over six years, but I continue to improve by being
referred to other families.
Then I tried to talk about my personal life which is something that I
thought that I was strong enough to share with others, but I realize that even
though it is coming up one year since my Dad passed I still have trouble sharing
that my father died of cancer with others without getting emotional. In my blog
entry I talked about my Columbus Day post and how I am moving forward and am
trying to continue to grow but it’s not something that you can forget about not
that I want to forget about my father’s passing but I would like to be able to
talk about him without being sad. Sometimes I think that if I don’t talk about
how broken I feel that the pain will disappear or not affect me anymore. This
event was life changing I still haven’t come to terms with how to deal with it.
So I ended up crying at the end of my speech but I switched the subject and
finished so I was proud of myself.
