Today Father Joy, our new priest came and introduced himself to us. He is a priest who took over for Father Roger who left last year. He is from India and he told us his story today. He has always had an interest in being a priest. Father Joy was given the choice to go be a priest in Germany but said no because he thought it would be too difficult to learn the language. He later was given the opportunity to be a priest in Edmonton at St. Tereasa and St. Thomas. After he was there he came to Vermilion to work at the Holy Name Of Jesus church. Father shared with us that more people live in his province of India than in Canada. He said that it is very crowded there and there are no empty lots like there are in Canada. The main resource in India is spices. education and health care are not free in India as opposed to here. The weather in India is almost always from twenty degrees Celcius to thirty degrees Celcius. He is from Kerala which is a province in India.
In my survey, my motivation type is support which means that I like being in a place where my employees and leaders respect me and will help me and support me when getting a task done. I find that this is true because I can do things better when people are there to support me and I have a backup plan if I need it. I like to have managers and leaders that are responsible and will help me get the job done.
My top subject area is physical education. I really want to be a gym teacher and a pro sports player so those fit in that topic well. My second and third subject areas were social science and business. With social science, I get a better understanding of the society I live in and other cultures. I have always had a liking of social studies in school so I can see why the survey results had that on there. My third subject area is business and I really like that one because some of the occupations I want when I’m older include business like a Lawyer which also fits in with social science. After those came computers, language arts, and mathematics which were less than all of the other subject areas .
- I am the LORD your God:
you shall not have
strange Gods before me.
You shall worship me and only me
|2. You shall not take
the name of the LORD your God in vain.
You shall use my name properly
My interest type is the aid. I am willing to take risks and I am considered to be helpful towards others. It says that I am good at sports and that I am pretty straight forward. I chose the Lacrosse picture because that is one sport that I play and enjoy. I picked the police car and the picture of the girl helping at the food bank because I am helpful to others. I have realistic occupation ideas that involve hands-on work so I put a picture of an electrician because that is what I want to be. I think that this interest survey worked and was pretty accurate.
I think that people need to be less greedy and share what they have with people who don’t have as much as them. I believe that countries that are in good situations like Canada and America should give to less fortunate countries like Africa and Ethiopia. If someone is poor in spirit it means that they lack courage and or spiritual awareness. I think we as a school, community, province, and country should help them by giving up their time and things to help them.
In the survey I found out that I have a ESTP peronality type. The survey asked me lots of questions. There were forty questions to answer. It says that I am comftorable in groups and I enjoy socializing with people. I enjoy having the spotlight in things and it says that I am able to go with the flow. I prefer flexibility when completing tasks instead of having a set date or deadline for something to be completed.
I am a Kinesthetic learner. This means that I like to actually help in a demonstration instead of watching and listening to it being done. I like to be active and take breaks in between work and studying. I like encouragement when I accomplish something. Some of the study tips I received were to use flashcards and take breaks when studying. I had a little bit of visual and auditory learning styles but my strongest is Kinesthetic.
