With the school year ending, so will my blogging. Over the year I have expressed so much of what I have learned while on my roller coaster of life. Although I am saying “goodbye” for now, it does not mean this is forever. Who knows, maybe in the future when I have a career in nursing I will decide to start this blog back up to tell of my experiences on the field. I also might start up next year because I will learn a lot of medical information at my classes at that I take next year. Also, I might continue this blog every once and a while just to let out some steam. I never write these kind of things (blogs, journals, articles) so this has been different and very difficult for me to complete these blogs. Although I have not met every requirement of this year long AP Lang assignment, I attempted to continue my blogs the best of my mental ability.
At the very beginning of this year, I thought that this would be an easy A assignment, but quickly realized that this was not the case. I honestly did worse at completing these blogs than my actual writing assignments because of all the hardship memories writing brought back to me. This school year has been the most memorable year. Not only did my life completely change, but my entire mental attitude took almost a full 180 turn. At the beginning of the year all I cared about was being the perfect student in order to have a perfect future. Throughout the year I have finally realized that family is the ultimate goal in life. Sure having good grades can help you have a good career to support a family, but the only reason why everyone is so school centered is because they want to make the best out of everyone, but not everyone should be pushed to do stuff that they don’t want to do.
I am really proud that during this year, I chose a not-so-common topic of “medical careers.” Also, I am happy that I tried to connect every blog with the therapeutic topic. Some of my blogs directly related to medical jobs and others were a little far off, but typically came around to connect somehow. While others did movies, and then just watched a movie before every blog, I attempted to try and push myself until I hit a wall, which happened a lot.
Many weeks I didn’t feel like writing about medicine or health, so I wouldn’t write. I wish that I would have chosen a broader topic, like things that interest me in general because that way I could still have talked about medical fields and my dad, but I would have been able to also have talked about spring break or past vacations. Now that I am reflecting over my blogs this past year, I am realizing so many other things I could have talked about, such as getting stiches when I was younger, or all of my sore muscles that have ached through five years of hard core volleyball. I have realized now that it is too late to talk in detail about this, but if I were to start another blog I would be sure to include previous experiments even if they were a long time ago, instead of focusing on events that happened recently.
