I have not come to a full solution to this problem yet, but I did make changes in my life as to how I can manage time management. But this semester, I was able to do much better from last semester, in getting my journals ready on time. With hurdles came hidden strengths I discovered about myself. During the hospital placement, I was challenge in caring for two patients all by myself; at first I was afraid to take up the challenge. But the fear later past, because; this challenge shown me where my skills were weak and needed improvement.
In the begining of highschool it was very challenging for me to balance school and friends making me choose friends which in this case was so not important or even worth it. Friends change, just like seasons and you might not always have the same ones. Several people that you might come across with are people who just teach you a lesson and aren’t in your life for the long run. My freshman friends taught me a lot because I am not so close to any of them, but during the time they sure did distract me from everything in my life. I started being disrespectful to my parents and not care about my grades.
During the first few activities, I was still being self-conscious and really nervous that I was just translating the modules to them and did not really share anything about my experiences, unlike Fret, she kept on relating the discussion with some of her experiences. But once I got the hang of it, words just freely came out of mouth and I was able
Peer review was particularly useful and mutually beneficial as I was able to receive feedback from my peers and learn from them, and highlights points where my peers may have missed out in their work. Thus, bettering my work. Moreover, my knowledge was challenged as research about certain topics proved my assumptions wrong. To quote Fred DeVito, “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”. This reference is apt as the course presented me with several challenges.
Being the clinician and conducting an intake interview was one of the most the practical, informative, and thought-provoking assignments I have completed throughout undergrad thus far. While allowing me to practice clinical interviewing skills, I learned how difficult yet essential various skills were in order to successfully complete an intake process. Specifically, I found taking a direct approach and asking specific questions was most successful. For example, with my client, Ian, I was able to find out the most relevant information about his manic tendencies through asking him specific questions. His intake form described having manic tendencies in the past, though there was not enough information there to really get to the core reason for them.
As I was going through the questions to this self assessment, I answered according to how I felt about my job, which I had just started at the time. My high scores in learning orientation and performance prove confirmed that although I felt quite lost at first because of all the new responsibilities and tasks I was assigned, I wanted to continuously improve myself at work and show my coworkers and bosses that I was competent. What was new or insightful to you in this assessment? My low score in performance avoid made me realize that when possible, I avoid situations in which I might look like a fool. Although I like to learn, I did not want to disappoint my coworkers, so I asked as few questions as possible.
In my opinion, I think we’ve done a pretty good job collecting all this information and figuring out the answer that will be the best fit. We took the job really seriously and we managed to have fun during it. Only the lack of time held us back and was a big obstacle in our way. We have a lot of tusks to do in this period of time, but we managed to overcome this block by splitting the work between us and reducing the frequency of our meetings. When we learned about the subjects, each of us learned them by himself from our collection of articles but we haven’t set together and share our findings with each other.
For the most part I conceive I’m ok, but at times I get swayed out with long sentences. I worked on getting some of my sentences short as mentioned by the tutor, but discover it hard to keep them short as I’m unable to articulate my writing precisely. At times I find it difficult to see how I can edit my assignment to its perfection. I submit my assignment when I feel there are no more errors that I can
I drew from lessons learnt from other academic research. I came across the macro and micro analysis strategies as well as other qualitative methods. Collection of Data was another area of challenge to the completion of my research because of the time involved and the constraints in reaching the main sources within the environment. However, I first set out to interview who I have known for some years. However, it was not an easy process.
So, I questioned myself, "What it takes to finally be familiar with those rules?" This experience taught me that writing is not the same as speaking and that requires me to have skills that go along with it. Writing this particular assignment about 9/11 as a topic has taught me what is like to deal with writing a research paper in a college-level, for the first time in my senior year. That was for my high school broadcasting class. However, after I gave my paper to my teacher, Mr. Williams, the next day he told me that it still had a lot of errors in it.
