I am going to be graduating from Workability next Friday on the 24th of May. I have learned so many things along the way. Throughout it all, it was a great experience and enjoyed everything. I am very proud of myself for completing the whole program. I have had an amazing teacher and made nice friends along the way. Even though I am happy and ready to move on to the next chapter in my life, I am a little sad and is going to miss everyone at Workability. Even though music is my dream, I have decided to work towards that by working at the Park Place Mall as well as becoming a staff at a day program called Rise. And even though I have never worked before, I am very eager to start working and get my first paycheck!
I'm graduating from WorkAbility. I learned a lot of things such as how to count money,How to make coffee, and how to get a long with the boss. I made a lot of friends at WorkAbility. Even though I did not want to do this at first, changed mind I know I need this.
I need to do this to this to keep the jobs I get and not get mad at the boss. I am really going to get a job that I want. I really want to do child care. If I do not get the job that I want I can get back in to working at a Restaurant
putting carts away was harder than i thought it be when i was done putting the carts away i sat on the parking stop with Kiaira she was and i talking and siting on the parking stop :) - the bussing was kinda messy and Manuel teaches us very well on bussing today with us :)
Collecting carts: Collecting carts was a struggle, but I learned to deal with it. It was a good learning experience. Bussing the tables: Cleaning up the mess not as bad as I thought it would be. I probably don't want to bus tables.
