edu180atl: john 4.11.12

What did I learn today?- Recently, I’ve been realizing that the world doesn’t revolve around me as an individual.  I’ve been realizing that there are a lot of other people in the world that matter as well.  But lately I’ve been saying and thinking the classic teenager line: “Ugh! I have the worst life ever!”  Or,  “Oh my god, my parents are the WORST.”  But, I now find myself noticing that I’m a pretty lucky kid.  And, I mean I’ve always known not to focus on yourself, but I realized that compared to other people around the world my problems are pretty negligible and I shouldn’t dwell on them.  Anyway, this week I learned that my problems aren’t the only ones that matter.
About John: “I am a thinker, and I really like being a leader even though I am pretty bad at it.  I like to think of myself as smart and creative, and who knows? Maybe I am.  It’s just that I’m not so sure.  I also like to draw, read and other things that most middle schoolers do.”

    Well said John! You are an amazing teenager with an incredible life behind and ahead of you. And yes, John you are so very smart and creative. Trust me, I’m a nurse. I know these things.
