Subject: STC 233 – Maxx Pollack – Personal Goal
Date: August 22, 2016 at 7:59:30 PM EDT
By the end of the year I would like to gain more confidence in my ideas and in presenting those ideas. I hope to be able to express my thoughts during class more as I am a bit on the shy side. Thanks, see you Wednesday.
This was me nearly four months ago. So much has changed in such a small amount of time. I could have never foreseen the path this semester or even year would take me on. I had a lot of growing up to do coming into my sophomore year. I was unsure of myself, and I was unsure of who I wanted to be. I can’t say I can attribute all of my personal growth to STC 233, but it definitely has helped to shape me into the person I am today. I have gained more of an outward focus, realizing the things that needed to happen for me to have a life of success. I became more confident in my ability to have an idea worth sharing. Looking back at my goal for this class I can be happy seeing that I did achieve the level of personal growth I was looking for.
The last few months have been a rollercoaster ride like no other. I’ve had my ups and my downs, my trials and my triumphs. I’ve won big, and lost everything. But that’s the way life works. You have to keep going, you have to keep defining yourself, keeping pushing against all adversity. But what keeps me going? The thought of being able to look back and see the path I made for myself, to have no regrets, no questions about myself. To be able to see all the success I had, and to know that I made that happen. That is what keeps me going.
So in short, yes I did achieve my personal goal. And yes I enjoyed the journey, but it’s not over yet. Not by a long shot. I still have a lot to learn, a lot to experience before I’m ready for the world. Hopefully I’ll continue down the right path. Watch out world I’m coming for you.
