Careers and Conversation Reflection
Has anyone ever asked you what you want to be when you grow up? Some of you know what you want to be, but some of you can’t name one job that interests you, out of all 5 billion jobs In the world. These interviews gave me a different point of view on my future jobs, and I’ll be telling you what my point of veiw now is.
I spoke to Mike Whittaker, Ken Britton, Jay Wu, Vadim Egoroz, Sara Bynoe and Jessica Callegaro. I learned a lot, What I learned from Mike Whittaker was the most valuable. I learned if you have a passion for something you can make a job out of it, if you are really love shoes for instants, you could be a shoes designer. If you love tea, you can be a tea tester. If you love trees you can be a tree planter. And these are just 3 of the 5,000,000,000 jobs. You can make a job out of your interests, my interests are designing and basketball. Off the top of my head jobs I could be a basketball player, basketball equipment designer, architect, or a General manager for a Basketball team. If I choose a job that highly insterests me not only will I make money, but I will enjoy it. Imagine having a job you absolutely hate, but you make good money. You go to work 6 times a week, you make money to be happy and live a good life. But if your doing a job you hate so you’re not living a good life because your spending a good amount of your life doing something you hate doing(30% of your life working). In these interviews I learned I should pick a job that interests me. Ken Britton really inspired be because he said Quality is more important than length of work. You can spend 30 minutes on quality, and it will be better than 10 days of bad quality. Also Jessica Callegaro said “be you, and don’t let anyone control what you want to be.” Sara Bynoe taught me, my brain lasts longer than body. Lastly Vadim Egoroz said something that really inspired me. “Everything starts off from idea, into masterpiece.”
Jay wu is an architect and I was very interested, I see myself being some type of architect in the future, because I really enjoy creating things. I have the soft skills and hard skills, I am co-operative with people, I’m creative, positive, and hardworking and Those are the skills I need for Architecture.
To conclude my day learning about careers through Conversation. I learned that you can make a job out of pretty much anything, you should pick a job you are interested in, quality of work is better than length of work, don’t let anyone control what you wanna be, my brain lasts longer than my body, and everything starts off from an idea into a masterpiece . This was very valuable experience because I had a glimpse about jobs, and inspired me to be me, and do what interests me. I learned a lot, it was very valuable now that I know all this information. You learn a lot from questions.
We made brownies, and put them in a muffin tin but all the batter wasn’t enough to fill the muffin tin. So we put water in the empty ones. While cooking it got in the brownies, so we only ended up with 2 edible brownies. I made icing, with cinnamon and the icing was the best icing I have ever had, I added sprinkles too and I only have 1 word, Yum.
What effect does milk have on growth
This is a survey on how milk has effected he height of Dutch men.
Average height before drinking 25% more milk: 5’4
Average height after drinking 25% more milk for 200 years: 6’0
the dutch society started drinking more milk and over the centuries, there height grew taller. This survey shows that milk may have an impact on your height.
if you drink more milk, there is a probability that you will be taller
after reading this my opinion of how milk makes you taller got stronger
1.) Some statistics are un valid opinions of random people. But we shouldn’t ignore statistics because opinions are mostly right and they put it out for a reason, if your a business owner or a politician you want to make everyone happy so you do what they statistics say (opinions of the people) to make more money or get voted in. Statistics are what the people want in society put it numbers, tables, graphs and charts.
2.) “86% of statistics are made up on the spot, you know – the remaining 24% are mathematically flawed.- from an internet message board.” http://www.truthpizza.org/logic/stats.htm
In statistics I learned most statistics are just thoughts without putting much think into it, also I learned that they are very uselful to hear about facts of what is better, and people’s opinions. So you can make the best desicion.
3.) you don’t know how valid they are, it could be an 80 year old guy in jail on his computer doing online surveys for all you know, and he may not answer correctly or knoledgfuly.
