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.”
