This semester has been great in school. I started well and I am faring on well. I have been clarifying with my teachers in order to get recommendations since this is the last semester in my certificate course in food production and beverages. I will be recommended differently depending on the units I am covering.Read more
I will proceed for attachment which will take 3 months (April-June). Thereafter, I will have my final exams in July. I am so excited. I am seeing myself moving somewhere and also growing. I have learned different things in school and also in life. Being with people from different cultures and backgrounds has really changed me a lot in a positive way. My end of semester exams will determine if I will proceed and get a diploma. Our teachers are working hard and are providing us with lots of projects and assignments which makes us busy, but also prepared for our exams.
After doing my final exams, I will graduate and wait for my results. The results will determine if am going to proceed with my diploma in food production and beverages. Our final exams are imported from London.
In this semester, we will be going for 2 excursion trips. The trips are compulsory for every student who will proceed for attachment next semester (April-June).
I am praying that I pass my exams and proceed with my diploma since I have realized that in our country when someone does any course at certificate level it becomes hard for him/her to get employment, but a diploma level might make someone lucky to find a job.
This month I have not managed to attend any community activity since I have been very busy at school with projects and clearing. I have been doing my workouts, jogging and morning run, but I have not visited my handball team.
Whenever I am free, I still make sure that I visit the children home that is near my school. Last weekend, we visited the home with my friends, and we shared our precious time with the little kids at the home. Among many activities, we plaited the kid’s hair, played with them and feed them. Also, we save our money in order to buy some clothing for the children at the home – this is a way of giving back to the community.
I have enjoyed every day this month. I am learning new things and I keep on telling myself that every day is a learning day. Some of the things that I have learned more about include time management, spending time alone, attitude and self-discipline. I never used to keep time, but as of now I can really say that I have managed keeping time. Most of the time, I spend my time alone. I have realized that if you are alone you can learn new things that have never come your way. It is also a good way of evaluating yourself, and it also helps you to get to know yourself better. I have also learned that attitude is very important – people will judge you according to your attitude. I have learned to have a positive mind; self-discipline is also key and without it you will never go anywhere. Generally, I have decided to keep off things that do not add value in my life and concentrate on things that will help me.
Sometimes in life a person feels demoralized by life itself, but someone needs to be stronger for a better future. This is a good way of taking life easily, since nowadays depression is knocking on people’s door very easily so one must be prepared mentally.
