Father Joy

This morning we met Father Joy. He is our new Priest at Holy Name of Jesus church. He moved from Edmonton to Vermilion.  Father was also the Priest of St. Theresa in Edmonton. He also was at St. Tomas church.

 He was originally from India more specifically Kerala. It is towards the bottom of India. He grew up with four brothers and one sister, but at the age of eight-teen, his sister left to become a Nun.  He knew that when he was younger he wanted to spread the word of God and wanted to teach people the word.

Father Joy told us more about his background and where he was from and told us all about the different provinces in India.  He told us all about the temperature in India and he even told us that at the top of India in some months it will start to snow.

The population of his province is 34,545,868. The population.  of Canada is 37,411,047. Just the population of Kerala is almost the size of Canada.  This is a picture of India and the red is the province that he lived in.

In India, they have free education for children aged 6-14. All of the schools that they would attend are private. In January 2019, India had over 900 universities and over 40,000 colleges. In 2016, Canada had ninety-six colleges and there is also ninety-six universities.  That’s crazy in all of Canada has fewer colleges and universities than all of India.

Motivations

My top motivation is Relationships. When I’m working, I want to form a connection between us and get to know them and know that they trust me. Job areas that would be ideal for this would be helping others whether its a police officer or if its a support person. It could be anywhere from sitting behind a desk and helping customers to be out on a farm and helping other people do farm work. I feel like this is really me because ever since I was five I’ve wanted to be a police officer and even now I still want to.  Becoming a police officer I would be out helping people and making sure that everyone is safe. My second motivation is an achievement.  This means that I like to be working in a job that will be happy for me when I figure something out that someone else has been working on for a year or two. I want to be recognized for things that I have done that is a good deed.  A job that would be in this field would be a designer.  It lets you be creative and it will praise you for doing something good.  I feel like my top motivation is really something that I would think of doing.

Knowledge

On the survey that I took on MyBluePrint, it shows that my top three subject areas are Physical  Education, Creative Arts, and Computers. I didn’t know that my top subject area was Physical Education.  I thought that I would have been more creative then I am physical. 

I feel like the survey showed me what kinds of things that I am interested in and on the MyBluePrint webpage, it says that the topics that I could study would be Sports, Wellness, and Health Sciences. I think out of all of the subjects I could study in, I would pick Wellness. I would choose Wellness over all of the other subjects because it is a cool topic to research and learn about. 

The other topic I got was Creative Arts. I think that this topic interests me more than Physical Education because there are more opportunities for better jobs.  For example, I could start to become a musician. I could learn how to play many different instruments and could start up a band and play for small events. Also, I could become apart of a theatre group that puts on a play every weekend for the people in the community. Or even if those don’t interest me I could become part of the Visual Arts category. I think that if I was better at drawing this would interest me a lot and I would be really excited to have a career in something like being an artist. 

The last one of my top three subjects is computers. I am very good at computers and feel like this would interest me for something to know how to do but not for a job. I think that learning how to program a computer or even make a  website would be a cool thing to know but not to do as a full-time job. Computer programming is really fun, and I think that it would be stressful to be doing for a full-time job. On the survey, it says that one of the jobs that I could do would be computer science. This job doesn’t really interest me, but I think that it would be pretty cool because you would be able to stalk someone really good if you had a job in this field. 

If I had to choose one out of the three subject areas I would definitely choose Creative Arts over Physical Education and Computers. This field would definitely interest me because I know more things that would interest me if I went to school for it.

Intrests

According to the survey results, I am a confident person and I like to talk to and support other people for what they do. I am wanting to be interacting with other people, and not just sitting behind a desk not talking to anyone.  After I took the survey it showed that I am mostly an enterprising person. That means I would work in the business world and would be a great leader and the person that wants to take risks. I feel like after I’m done school I want to be in a job that involves helping people either if it’s talking to them about their problems or if it is making sure everyone is safe I think that the enterprising person is definitely what I’m mostly want to do.

The tenth commandment

Something that we can do to help the poor is that we can donate to the food bank. The school can collect non-perishable food items and then bring them to the food bank and help organize the food.  What we could do as an individual person is that we can either collect bottles and then buy them food like I did or we could donate our old clothes to a homeless shelter. Our country can help stop homelessness by providing more houses for people who don’t have enough money to afford a house. We could lower the prices of the houses for them or having an apartment building that would be affordable for them. With trying to help with being poor in your spirts we could have more Churches of different cultures and not just two different religions. We could help them more by spreading the word of God.

Personality Survey

When I did this survey I didn’t really know what my personality was. After I finished the survey then that’s when I started to understand what my personality was made up of.  One thing about my personality is that I like to work in groups of people.  Apparently, my personality likes to speak it’s mind even if it could hurt someone’s feelings.  When we have an assignment then I like it better when we have a set date and not a date that is like whenever you are done you are done. I like knowing how long it should take me to finish it, and also I liked to have a set date so then I know I won’t be the last because when I am last I feel like I held up the whole class, but if we have a set date to finish something then I know that if I am last then I won’t be holding back the whole class.  The Feildmarshal, that’s what my personality is called, my ideas that I have are kind of all over the place and that means I could have troubles communicating with other people and trying to explain things to others. If I have a plan and I set my mind to it I am able to accomplish it.  If I ever have to make a decision I put others before me and I think about how it would affect others.  That’s what I learned about my personality.

 

 

My Learning Styles

My main learning style is auditory witch means that I learn better by listening to a recording of what I want to learn about and listening to what other people have to say. It helps me when I am studying to hear everything that I’m saying so I usually read it out loud or record myself than listen to it over and over again until I understand how to do it. I am 38% auditory, I am also34% visual and that means I like to see pictures, charts, and doing hands-on activities. If you are mostly visual then it would help while studying to make notes and underline my writing and try and make charts or pictures for most of the stuff that you do. The last one is that I am 27% kinesthetic. Being kinesthetic means that I can’t sit for very long, I like to be moving, and use gestures when explaining things. If you are kinesthetic then it would help if when you are studying then only study in little amounts of time. So if you are studying then study for twenty minutes, take a five-minute break, and so on. If you are kinesthetic, it would help if you use flashcards to study with. I use flashcards all the time because it is something that helps me. I use lots of strategies when studying like reading it out loud or even recording myself so I can listen to it over and over again. Everyone has different strategies for studying and if something works for you it might not work for others. Don’t make fun of someone because they study different you do what works for you.
