Quote of the Day: It always seems impossible until it's done.
Morning Class: For morning class I had metacognition. To start off we did a memory game, called memory challenge. On the screen they had a colored shirt with somebody's name under it and a piece of food, we could look at it for 45 seconds and then we had to wright down the once we remembered. I remembered four out of 7. Then we did it again but with different colures, food and names. For the second time around I got 3 out of 7. For the second memory challenge they showed up and equation, for example the first one was, "16 double it -5 divided by 3 times 4 half of it divided by 3 times 8 double it +5. We had 30 seconds to work it out, I did not but for the people who want to know the answer it is 101. Then we did another one and I did not get it either. Next we spoke about different bits of the brain, we split into groups and mad a robot out of our self's in someone's brain. Our team did it so there was a convaerbelt, then the bottom people pass up what was on the convaerbelt witch in our case it was effort so we passed that up to the brain to give it effort, so the body could do things it wanted to do.
Afternoon Class: For afternoon class I had Self-awareness. In this lesson we learnt about our top five strengths, mine are appreciation of beauty and excellence, Bravery, Love, Teamwork and Gratitude. I agree with the top five but I would have thought love would have come closer to the top. Then we spoke about ABCD, ABCD stands for Antecedents, Beliefs, Consequences and Do. This means for example, "David asks a girl he liked to a party, but she says she it too busy this week." That would be A. B would be " She must think I'm boring or ugly", C would be " despondent and unhappy" and D would be "David stays at and mopes." That would be the story if David had bad thoughts, feelings and actions, but he had good thoughts, feeling and actions he would have been a lot happier.
That taught us that you can change your moods and somebody else's moods just my smiling or doing something simple.
Evening Class: For evening class we had a guest speaker come in, his name was Jeff Forthys. He spoke to us about anxiety and what it means and how to handle it. I was a great talk because he answered so many questions that we all had. He said that if you can feel yourself getting anxious, you can either breathe or focus on something else that makes you feel happy and relaxed.
Daily Reflection Challenge:
The challenges I have faced in the pass we has been settling in, I had found it quiet hard to settle in and find my balance, but I now think being here for a week and a half I have started to settle in better.
The steps I took to overcome this was by putting myself out there and keeping myself busy.
My friends Tam, Izzy and Ella have helped me out a lot this week because they have been there to support me had we have become really good friends.
