I visualised myself as someone who was working but also had time to travel and pursue hobbies such as photography, writing etc. I imagined myself living alone but having the support of family and a few trusted friends. I imagined having a sky terrier puppy and walking it every morning. I imagined myself as someone who was experienced and knowledgeable, calm and collected. I think that in order to achieve this I need to focus on being organised, managing my time well and paying attention to every moment and learning as much as I can. I also need to be more adventurous and risk-taking and try new things. Thinking about this made me excited for the future and what it has in store for me.
This Tuesday we had the opportunity to visit one of the sun dac centres. Visiting Sun dac, which works adults with mental disabilities, was an eyeopening and poignant experience for me. I also got some clarity on how to go about planning activities for these people. We met some of the members of this organisation and discussed what to keep in mind while planning activities. We also got to meet some of the adults who are under the care of this centre during the day. I realised that they have a wide range of disabilities. Some were able to speak better than others, some were able to comprehend us more than others etc. I am eagerly looking forward to working with these people. The learning outcome that I think I worked on is learning outcome 2. This is because designing activities that are suitable for our service partners is a new and unfamiliar experience for me. I also focused on learning outcome 3 by helping with planning activities for our service partners.
I have just signed up for some activities and I’m really excited about this season. I have signed up for photography and MUN as my two creative activities.I have also signed up for the after school yoga activity. I hope to finish my CAS creativity and activity requirements by the end of season two. I also want to sign up for the sailing activity if it is happening this season. In addition to this, I am also going to be part of the focus group “Because I Am” which aims at dissolving gender stereotypes. I would also like to be a part of the Initiative For Peace programme either this year or the following year.
