This form took me a lot longer than I expected. When first started Form 6 I had trouble confronting different things such as projects or even communicating with my supervisor or classmates. But, I feel like I’ve grown so much since then and have had many wins since being on this form.
Some of the wins I had were increasing my confront and communication. I used to avoid things that I felt uncomfortable with or didn’t want to do. I learned that this would only drag things out and that once you decide to do something it isn’t as bad (or bad at all) as you think it is.
Another thing I also realized was that I couldn’t wait for my goals to happen, but had to take the initiative and put in the work to accomplish them. For a while, I felt like I was stuck in a victim viewpoint and expected others to solve my problems for me. I realized that at the end of the day I was the only one that could make the decision to do something and that if I didn't change my outlook or attitude about things everything would stay the same.
For example, with my studies, I realized I had to set in self-discipline for myself to finish my courses by working outside of class and having more intention.
Putting in the work to meet my goals made me feel happier and helped me make more progress on my program.
My favorite part of this form was the reading program. It was amazing to learn about so many different viewpoints and to live the lives of the characters through the pages. I enjoyed reading all the books because after each one I felt I learned so much that I didn’t know before. It also became easier to read as I read more and my vocabulary increased.
Now I’m going to say some thank yous. Thank you Quinn and Emily for the form exam and review. After doing the form exam I feel very much ready for Form 7. Also thank you, Alyssa, Todd, and Robin for helping me get through this form. Thank you Melissa for being the best FA and helping me with anything. Last I want to thank my family for supporting me the whole way.
You’re all amazing and have helped me in so many ways.
I’m also really excited to start Form 7 and to learn even more.
