A bit surreal today as I sit down and write my first paper in almost 20 years. I’ve spent the last 10 years trying to be very concise in my communication, to the point and easy to skim the important facts to ensure what I need to get across will be read. The fact that I am having some emotional response to the stress related to routinely writing papers that ‘feel long’ is just a great example of some of what I learned from my MBTI/Firo B results.
Oral Counseling Proficiency Exam Self-Reflection Paper Kristie Hoppe Elizabethtown College In this paper I plan to briefly review what happened during the counseling demonstration. Next, I will discuss two basic counseling skills that I believe I used well, and one that I struggled with. Finally, I will discuss the next steps I will take
Neal, The clocks at LIH appeared to be online and communicating to the WDM. I began my check to start data collection that is when I realized the clocks are not operating normally. I tried to reboot, initialize, and test both clocks though it appeared the clocks were in the process of successfully completing the task, it failed. Within the last two hours, I managed to get both clocks to complete a data collection successfully. I contacted Kari, LIH Coordination Center and request to have a TSO swipe their badge on both clocks located at the Checkpoint and Break Room, respectively.
It’s a day in mid-July right before my freshman year and marching band is about to start. My mom has the day off because in order for me to be in the band, I have to go to the doctors to get a sports physical. The nurse calls me to the back and tells me, “Okay Maryna, we’re going to weigh you and take your blood pressure.” I am super self-conscious about my weight especially when other people have to see the exact pounds, so hearing that and knowing I have to get on a scale in front of my mom and the nurse is the scariest thing I could ever hear. My heart is a train pounding down the tracks. As I took my shoes off to get on the scale I would think to myself, the nurse and doctor are going to talk shit about my weight, my mom is going to be so pissed about how much I’ve gained, What the hell is wrong with me? This is when I realized I have a poor self-esteem.
When I first learned about this assignment, I was a bit skeptical. Having to go to the same place every week and journal about my experience did not really appeal to me and seemed tedious. I was never really big into journaling, but after the first visit, I was hooked. After the first visit, I was amazed at how much of a relief it was to have nothing to worry about except the beauty that was right in front of me. Feeling the this sense of calmness wash over me was unbelievable.
I wonder if everyone, despite their varying backgrounds from one another, has experienced “imposter syndrome” at some point in their life. There are numerous ways in which one can feel out of place, as I can firmly attest to. I feel like an outsider all of the time. Dating back as far as my early childhood, my personality and my interpretation of my personality, has lead me to believe that something is very wrong with me. Why am I so different from the outgoing and energetic people I see in movies and even in my everyday life? Why are there so many misconceptions about people like me, and why am I starting to actually believe that they are true? I can recall many experiences in my life in which I have felt inadequate compared to my
So far in this semester I have learned so much about myself that it really puts me in a perspective that I can’t really believe I have somewhat found myself. I have yet to fully realize my potential, but I have notice the things I really want to pursue and become. Before coming into college I had no clue what I truly wanted to do with my life or what I was capable of doing, that was until I came to college. I came to SUNY Oswego so worried and so ashamed of not having a major and it really freaked me out because I felt so unprepared. I was told that it’s okay to not have a major and it’s even better cause when you don’t have a major you can explore so much more and it has been so much fun finding myself and really seeing how I am. During
Finding the right words to describe my adolescent life is nothing short of impossible. When looking at myself, I did not know who I truly was and lacked direction in life. In essence, my teenage years were tough. When I was growing up, as most girls do, I struggled with self-esteem, particularly in regards to my physical image. Turning to food was always comforting, which in turn led me to become an overweight teenager with no self-esteem or drive. During my sophomore year of high school there was a turning point; I reflected on myself physically and emotionally and realized I needed to change my outlook in order to go towards what I wanted. I knew with my family history, that the odds were stacked against me. A few of my family members
I was a quiet child growing up; not necessarily shy, but introverted. Now, I consider myself an extroverted introvert. Growing up, I probably didn’t come across as a leader. My kindergarten teacher wrote in my assessment that I was shy; I didn’t speak up enough for myself when I was bullied throughout my elementary school years, and I probably stood in the shadows more than I realized throughout middle school. I could have been more decisive during high school.
I have lived in Unit 3879 for the past six months. For six months (possibly more because I have reason to believe the respondents followed me from my former residence in Maryland), the occupants (or their guests) of Unit 3893 and Unit 3881 are purposely being a private nuisance to me. They have been illegally monitoring and following me obsessively and in an intimidating manner. The respondents have also been shocking me with some form of technology, in a way that I deem tortious, offensive and demeaning.
I am now approaching the conclusion of my college career and starting to adjust to work life. This is a period of self-reflection and an attempt to put everything I learned into perspective. During this period of my life, I have been constantly thinking and contemplating my future. I feel very anxious yet nervous during this time while I am adjusting to this new stage of my life. When I was in High school my life was very structured, because I could be very dependent on peoples help and I obviously still lived with my family. When I went to college, I had to break away from that feeling of dependency and start the adjusting to adulthood. In college there was more responsibility and I started to become more independent. This was a crucial step in my life but choosing a career is going to be an even bigger step. It is a bigger step because; I have to start structuring my career goals and family goal for the future. At this moment all I can think about is my career, and how I can I keep improving myself for work life.
1. Going into Sauder For someone currently studying at the Sauder School of Business, I am amazed that I got into this school. I have never taken a business course in my life (asides from learning a little about marketing during my yearbook course and from watching television), and my high school curriculum was centered on the sciences. All I knew was accounting since both my parents are accountants; I was also aware of how prospective accountants needed to obtain their Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certification and the existence of the “Big 4” accounting firms. Thus, I was fairly narrow-minded and just hoped to get my bachelor’s degree with a specialization in accounting.

Over the course of six months, I have become proficient in using the general ledger, purchasing and sales orders/invoice menus in QAD. My process areas involve searching for invoices and purchase orders to solve inventory, AR, AP or fixed asset problems. I am often entering or updating projects in QAD and have learned how to investigate and solve account, sub-account and cost center problems. I have become proficient in how to find, change, upload and post journal entries and account balances within QAD.
