One positive point from your mail is your passion of teaching. Most of my friends and I myself are not really sure what we love for. With the passion, I believe whatever decision is the right one. I hope your feeling of sadness and desperation will fade soon.
Today and tomorrow, I will spend the whole day in a kitchen where I order my lunch almost every day. I asked the chief to allow me to experience two days in the place where they cook for me and about fifty people else. I might not tell you that, I rarely have meat in my daily diet. I hate to call myself a vegetarian because it evokes the images of people going on diets or following a religious or foods lack of essential nutritions. I am following a whole plant-based food diet

Francis Xavier University has been the school of my dreams. I’d spend nights looking up videos of the university and everything it had to offer. Of course once it was my time to apply for the school, I was the first of my 2016 graduating class to send off a transcript. This sudden rush to get into the school of my dreams changed my outlook on life in a dramatic way. From a young age, I was pushed by not only my parents but peers and teachers as well that in order to be successful I was to go into a science program and make use of it. This was my plan for awhile, to take the challenge and become a Doctor or a high paid Dentist, a job that I was interested in. The word here is ‘interested’, I wasn't passionate to learn for it. As the first few weeks of Graduating year came to an end, I found myself miserable with the decision to apply for a Science degree because it wasn't something I loved. This was something my family members loved and wanted me to pursue because they thought it would be the best option for me. Through this difficult process I made the bold decision to apply for the Arts program instead which will successfully lead me into the Education program as well. Teaching is something that I’ve always had such a passion for and is a job that I get butterflies just thinking about. Teachers are under appreciated and deserve as much credit as they can get and for me that is something I want to change during my journey to proceed my dream job. This experience has taught me that the only person who can write my future is myself, I can't let others influence my personal decisions. Although many people including family members disagreed with my decision and to this day still hold a grudge about it, I’m happy about my choices and my happiness is my key to
Thinking about why I didn’t feel happy about ballet anymore made me very upset. There were many nights where I would cry myself to sleep thinking about it. I knew that I enjoyed dancing, but was unsure if I wanted to major in that field. Realizing the struggle a ballet dancer has to live every day to survive in this world made me think twice that I just did not have the dedication that is needed to be a professional in a Ballet Company. When I thought of the jobs after college in the field of Zoo Science it made me happy to think about. Even though working in a Zoo or some type of job similar to that would take a lot of dedication and effort, it made me smile. Thinking over and over about my tough decision made me see that I was just tired of ballet and it is not that I didn’t love ballet; I was just tired of consuming my whole life for it. My heart was telling that I wanted and needed to explore something new in my life. After making my decision that switching my major to Zoo Science would be a better career path. I felt happy again returning back at Friends after Thanksgiving break. I knew exactly what I wanted to tell my advisor in Ballet.
Choosing a career is not an easy task. As a child, I never knew what I eventually wanted to grow up to be, but in the back of my mind I would always say a teacher because I come from a long history of teachers in my family. One of my grandpas was a high school math teacher along with coaching the football team. My aunt is an elementary school substitute teacher specializing in special needs students, while my uncle is a high school history teacher. While, my father is a physical education teacher who has taught at both the elementary and high school level. Growing up around so many teachers made me think I was destined to be a teacher, although at the time, I was not passionate about it, until my senior year of high school. Senior year I decided to take a child development course where I had the opportunity to volunteer daily at an elementary school. I quickly fell in love with the students and decided that inspiring young children to succeed was my calling. It was this opportunity that made me decide that becoming a teacher was my destiny. Last year I declared as a Child and Adolescent Studies (CHAD) to peruse my dreams of becoming a teacher
Bam! It hit me like a speeding truck. Two weeks in Cuzco, Peru had shown me what it is really like to be struggling in all areas in life. This specific mission trip showed me outside our borders there are people in need of basic necessities in life. I spent the better of two weeks learning about myself and the people I was determined to help. Teaching has always been a part of my life, however, after these two weeks, I learned that teaching is exactly what I want to do with my career. The students I was able to work with had not had a proper education, and my teaching them put them that much farther into a life they hadn't imagined ever having. The compassion and empathy I felt in my heart for my students had shown me that teaching is the right
Growing up, I was the kid that threw the mac and cheese and chicken fingers of the kids menu to the side and ordered a medium rare filet mignon. My dad joked I was “cows’ worst enemy” when I devoured cheeseburgers two meals a day and stacked my plate with more meatballs than spaghetti. Had anyone told me that I would go vegan, I would have told them they were insane. Now, I have gone just over three years without my formerly cherished steak, and it has been an experience that has taught me more than I could have ever imagined. Living in a house where I am the only vegan presents many challenges every meal. In the beginning, I spent weeks exploring the “vegan meal” boards of pinterest, finding recipes that fit into the strict diet guidelines
Dear family, I am having second thoughts about continuing my education. I realize that working full time and having family that depends on you can be a challenge. I remember whisper in a soft voice that when my daughters complete college that I was going back to further your education. I know you are counting on me to achieve this lifetime goal. So here is what I want to do. I will keep in mind why I chose Bethel University and why it was it was so important for me to continue my education. This decision was made because of the structure of it curriculums and how it is the perfect fix for working adult. The day when Orientation class is over and move forward to getting into my major will be a joy.
I started to look for another job, one that would fit my needs better. I also wanted a job that wouldn 't stress me out. Then one day I saw a post on Facebook that said “ I am needing to hire a new teacher aid at my school in Brooklyn Center. Let me know as soon as possible if you are, or know someone who might be interested.” The job seemed wonderful. I would be working with kids, which is my favorite thing ever. I’ve been babysitting my cousins since I was eleven and helping out in the Church nursery. I looked forward to seeing those kids every week. I thought this job would be so much better job then
For a while I struggled with knowing what career field I should enter. Coming into my junior year I started seriously considering my strengths and weaknesses and how they would tailor to a specific career field. At the time I was apart of a group called Faith Expressions. Faith Expressions is a dance and sign-language group created by my mother and another lady who leads the same group at another church. Originally my mother choreographed the dances we would learn and preform, but being significantly older than all the other girls participating I decided to ask for a leadership position in the group as a dance choreographer. Over the course of 6 months I taught and choreographed a dance to 7 girls ranging in age from 5-9. During my time mentoring them I realized not only my passion for teaching but my passion for teaching
A long long time ago Little red riding hood was told to walk to her grandmas house to give her some aspirin to make her foot ache go away. She has a day to get to grandma’s house and then a day to get back, so all in all she has two days to get there and back if she isn’t back in that time her mom will send out help to find her.
As i come up on my one year as a vegetarian i look back and reminisce all the hard time had at the start. I have gain so much knowledge and understanding through this process. Now i as i already said that
I never dreamed about going back to school to become a teacher. I was a stay home father for 4 years. Later, I felt unsatisfied. I decided it was time to go back to work in education. I interviewed and became a Para for a specialty school that works with student that have multiple behaviors and high medical needs. Two years ago I had the opportunity to take a position with the Adaptive PE department. Since this is what my undergraduate is in I could not resist the
Growing up in a country where educational preferences were given to boys, my father went against the society norms and encouraged me to get higher education. Along with his guidance and my thirst for knowledge I was accepted in engineering program. I was happily pursuing my degree, when suddenly all this came to halt; my father was seriously ill. He wanted me to get married before he leaves this world. Few weeks later, I met my husband, who at the time was visiting Pakistan for his cousin’s wedding and within months I was married. I came to United States with a hope of better future and dreams of finishing my education, but was unable to do so as I was expecting our first child and had no one to help us with the baby. I dedicated myself to raise our daughter, but deep down that feeling of emptiness lingered. Life kept moving forward, we moved a few times, gradually I started to adapt to being a stay home mother of two beautiful girls. Numerous times I brought home admission forms from CCBC but started to doubt myself if I was going to be able to do restart after such a big gap? I started volunteering at my daughter’s school and was soon hired as a teacher’s helper to assist with children with special needs. While working at school, I was again in an environment that reminded and encouraged me to fulfill my lost dreams. In 2012, I enrolled at CCBC with no career path in mind: I just wanted start again! Once I started I never looked back and I will continue to thrive.
The word writing in the business of Agriculture is a little bit unusual. Writing might be found more in the diary part of agriculture, but writing isn’t found very much in my major. My major is Ag Business with a focus on plant science. I am trying to become a seed rep and also run my dad’s farm after I graduate. A seed rep has to treat seed, advertise seed varieties, sell seed, etc. In being a seed rep, the most important thing is that the seed rep has to be able to communicate with the farmers. The only time you would really have to write something down would be like feedback to a company or a farmer. In the old days, the man that sold seed would mail a letter letting the farmer know what he thinks about the certain variety of the seed and ways to grow a better crop with the seeds that he is planting, but now all you have to do is call or text the farmer or even type and send out an email. Since all of this new technology has come out there really hasn’t been any form of writing because all the receipts and reports are printed out and the talks between the seed rep and the farmer are normally either on the phone or sitting together at the office drinking coffee.
