c) The stress of getting something done when rushed is too much for me.


3.Is this job for you? Why or why not?

Although this job seems really interesting it isn’t something fit for me. I am more of the person that is behind the computer designing the work then actually putting it together.

4. Explain the value of TOKTW experience in relation to your ideas about your post secondary (after highschool) plans (education? training? travel? work?):

Today showed me how real jobs are like once you get out of school. I actually had a conversation with my dad’s boss about not giving up on a passion and keeping your dream alive. He said, “Even when you’re about to give up, don’t” He also told me it is good to know what job you want so you can plan and start achieving your goal. I am currently wanting to become a lawyer when I grow up and hopefully in ten years I’ll look back to this day while writing an exam for law school.
