This has been a very disheartening week in ISM.
It actually began two weeks ago with trying to get a mentor, but instead I was left with the news of that management will not let me study within their clinic. Shocked by this news, I have now wasted my time on relying on this facility for a mentorship. As a result, I’m left with no mentor and approaching deadlines to accommodate for this loss.
In a like manner, for my original work I wanted to create a survey based on adolescence such sexual education. However, it has come to my attention that the how teachers at Reedy forgot to send a notice to for the group to come in and provide sexual education to its students. Thus, leaving the students without any form of sexual education, and I lacking the resources necessary to prior to conduct this study.
Lastly, I have been extremely struggling with time management. I thought I had overcome this obstacle in the beginning of my ISM journey, but in the last two weeks arrive after break I seem not to be able to get back in the hang of things. Now, I feel that every assignment is rushed, or that I am not meeting the expectations of the program.
In order to overcome this feeling of anxiety and disappointment, I must re-evaluate why I am here in ISM. I am here to further grow my knowledge of my field of study and my passion. Therefore, I need to put in the same 110% effort as I did in the beginning of the year. I believe that I was most push by this statement in the recent conference we had about our journey so far in ISM. Here, I came in to the realization that I am not where I need to be, and I need to find ways to further push myself to meet the expectations necessary to achieve my goals. As a result I plan to work more on time management with completing my assignments early, properly utilize my time in class more to find interviews and possible mentor ships to gain better knowledge of my topic, reaffirm my passion of humanitarianism, and find a way to reconstruct my original work project.
