We went to the cat hermitage to learn about volunteering with cats. Some were sick and some of them were diabetic and the cats are friendly, pretty and cute. I had fun talking to them.
My goal is to get as much information as I can in the Ministry field. I plan on using LinkedIn to make connections. I do not mind talking to people I don't know as I firmly agree with the saying, "It's not what you know, it's who you know." I also think that Facebook is extremely valuable too. There are a lot of hurting people in this world who need love. Even a phrase as simple as "Hi! how are you doing? I care about you." can save someone's life.
I have decided to go into the Ministry field. I am very interested in working for a church and going to Seminary school. I have a passion for God and helping people grow in their faith. I am going to continue schooling at Pima Community College and look into volunteer work at churches.
I really enjoyed these interviews because I ended up having a lot of confidence in myself after being totally anxious before. It's pretty amazing when I step up to the plate and kill it!!!! YEAH BABY!!!! I learned that I am very capable of being professional when i really put my mind to it. When I am respectful to others, they will reciprocate.
I had fun doing the job interviews.We did three. I learned a lot from yesterday.I learned how to have eye-contact, listen and ask questions. I feel much more confident.
We took the city bus to 4th avenue and then we took the streetcar to the university. We visited a bakery and asked job searching questions. We got back on the streetcar and went to the Mercado. We asked more questions.
Lisa is a speaker from the U of A. She has a lot of physical pain and she stays calm and happy and she is nice to talk with.
Lisa helped me learn how to be positive. I know what it is like to be in pain. when I am in pain, I stay calm.
The summer before my senior year of high school my Dad took me on a trip to the Middle East. I was definitely excited but not used to being immersed in different cultures. Being a Christian I was troubled by the religious differences there but careful not to judge. They truly are awesome people. The food there blew my mind. It was a party in my mouth which I had never experienced before, spices and new flavors mingling to form an absolute enigma on my palate. I felt out of place however, because my Dad and I were observed as the minorities there but it was very interesting to see how the public conducted themselves. I learned quite a bit. The historical landmarks we saw were nothing less than stunning. The Egyptians built the pyramids with their bare hands but Americans have used industrialization to the max. I was spellbound to say the least and I broadened my horizons to appreciate how valuable diversity really is to this world.
