Assessment Activity: Who Am I?

Aye, It’s Me

 

There are some days in my life, where I’ve asked myself; who am I? That in this world full of people in different aspects, what is my match to them? What makes me unique, different from them, the others. In the things that I do, say and act, what do people think of me? For the people who knows me, do they really know me for who I am? Are they my friends or just an acquaintance? I wonder if the people around me sees me for who I am.

 

The recent motto that I am trying to live up with this 2019 is, “To continue to make myself better.” Be a better version of myself – the best that I’ve thus far. All struggles that I have to go through will make me stronger and wiser. Although before I accomplish dreams, I need to be open minded that in order to so; I have to get back on track, and match my hopes to my habits.

 

With no joke, my legit talent is to talk loudly, and I could’ve sworn that if there were emoji’s in here I would have used it already. I mean there are couple people who enjoys it, but there’s also few that gets irritated, so I don’t know; I think it’s a hit or miss. Sure there might be some days that I question my talent and what its use for or capable of, but I can’t always seem to find an answer. I guess it’s alright though, I just have to accept it, after all God wouldn’t give it to me without a reason or a purpose. I just choose to trust in him, in a way.

 

What I like about myself is that I’m unique from others. I mean yes, everyone is unique in their own ways, and that’s good. I  can say that I’m unique because of my relationship with God, I have my own personality and I have different life than others. I know you’ll ask, how is my relationship with God unique, when everyone could have it too. I believe that God has favor for all of us, but He’s favor for each one of us is different from one another. My characteristics is my own aspect, everyone does, and this makes us different from others. Life for everyone is different, some might go through the same trial, but it’s not the exact; just somewhat similar.

 

As I grow up, I tend to care less about what people think of me; this doesn’t mean I slack off, what It meant was I don’t let people think for me. It’s better off for me to set what people thinks of me aside and just focus on what I should do, to make myself grow. Although I would still be glad if they notice my change, but if they don’t I still wouldn’t mind, at least I know to myself that I did what was good for me and to see that improvement in myself.

Thank You Ma’am Response

Thank You Ma’am

 

My response to Thank You Ma’am is about the shift on its story plot. The humorous beginning to the moral learning throughout the story. On how Roger’s judgment about Mrs. Jones changed. Also my personal experience and thoughts for a stranger doing kind gestures to me.

I thought that it was funny when a huge lady picked up a fragile boy and shook him, to the point that his own teeth would rattle. This was like an exaggeration and that is why I also had the idea that the story would be humorous. I guess that change not too long, when the next paragraph slowly started opening up to the real side of the story. I believe that the author used a humor in the starting of the story to get the reader’s attention.

The story had started getting serious after the funny scenes. I then got the hint that it wasn’t just about a boy stealing and getting a complete beating from a fat women. I started having thoughts and theories. Like when Mrs. Jones asked Roger if the boy had anyone at home to teach him to wash his face, and the boy said he got nobody to tell him so. I felt pity, because who knows what kind of household he was in, or if he was  just a broken kid.

I believe that meeting Mrs. Jones would turn Rogers life. As the story went on the boy was just like any other kids that’s lost, who needed an adult model. It seems like he doesn’t have that and Mrs. Jones might have shown that to him throughout. It touched him in a way. Some examples of Roger changing his judgement on Mrs. Jones was when Mrs. Jones asked if he would run if she lets him go, and he responded with yes. Later on in the story as they reached the house, the door was left open and he was no longer in Mrs. Jones grip. Yet this boy chose to just trust Mrs.Jones, he didn’t escape when he had the chance instead just follow the instructions that Mrs. Jones told him to do.

The kindest thing that a stranger would do for me is caring. Like for example I fell or tripped on something and someone says “Are you ok?,” that kinda thing. Simple things that a stranger would just check up on you, when you don’t look alright. Because some people that I know, doesn’t even care if I don’t look ok, but a stranger would. Pure, simple and genuine care, is one of the kindest thing I see in some strangers could do for me or other.

Overall Thank You Ma’am had a lot of lessons to learn from. The questions helped me understand the story even better. Thank You Ma’am isn’t the best, but it’ll do I guess. It’s gonna make you feel laughter, thinking of possible outcomes, but in the end you’ll appreciate it later on.

Have you ever “Left your campsite better than you found it”?

Yes, I have. I remembered when I was younger and I loved to bake brownies out of those mix from Betty Crocker. I mastered it already at a young age, only adding a couple of ingredients in it. However when my mom baked brownies, she did it from her own recipe book, and it made me wondered. I was curious so I asked my mom to teach me how to make homemade ones. When I did learn how to make them and mastered it, mom was so proud. So I do think, that I did leave something better than what I have found it.

Multiple “Signs” of Intelligence in the Bible

Set D

John 1:3-9

How is Jesus described in this passage?

Jesus was the Light, in Him thing were made, without him nothing that has been made will be made. He was life, life was light of all mankind. God sent a man, named John, he came to be a witness to testify of the Light, and thru him may all believe. John was not the Light he was only to witness and testify, for the true Light was the one who gives everyone a life. He was to come in this world.

 

Mark 13:24-27

How does Jesus speak about the second coming?

Jesus said, that in those days, sun will be darkened, moon will not bare light, stars will fall from sky, and heavenly bodies will be shaken. Nature will not give us natural things, I picked up. In those times people will see the Son of Man with great power and glory, coming from the clouds.

Commandments of the Church

For my understanding according to Commandments of the Church, Catholics do this as a penance for their sins. If they didn’t do the Commandments of the Church, like they were unable to do the 10 commandments, you are considered into one of those people who did not do anything for their sin. They also do these writing before Lent. Canada, has two holy days of obligation, these days are the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God and Christmas.

Motivations

When I grow I’d love to be in Entertainment Management or something along those lines. Meaning that I like my skills and talent in entertaining people, to be put out there. I’d love to accomplish something along that journey, to be famous maybe,  for doing a certain entertainment project. Achievement is putting your God given talent and risking it for no assurance for an accomplishment in result, hopefully.

Web of Relationship

I believe that if you give a negative vibe, people would be affected in a group if one acts negative. It might lead some to lose hope for the chance of team or themselves. As to acting positive, it will boost someone up or up lift their mood, and will be encouraged to do better. You earn respect by treating everybody the way you wanted to be treated.

Knowledge

My knowledge results were Language, Physical Education and Creative Arts. I definitely agree with, Language being my first knowledge, because speaking two language is already an example. In Languages, creativity also has a big role that plays in it, maybe that’s the reason why Language is my first knowledge. Second was Physical Education, I like getting involved with sports and games, inside and outside of school. It also helps with fitness of your body, and how to control my eating habits sometimes.

Interests

My results were Artistic and Social. Both of these things are what I really like to do in the future, if I was given the chance. I like socializing more, than just sitting in an office by myself. I intend to get bored a lot when I just sit around, I like moving around and mingling with others. I’d also be grateful if I get the opportunity to be in the business of creating films or trendy things on TV and social medias. Just being part of like, editing, story concepts, character’s make-over, sound effects and etc,  is pleasure for me.
