Journal 8

My active reading in the book Callings is going great. The strengths of the book I think are just the motivation that the book gives off. In the first part of the book was all about people and their dreams. It was about these people whose dreams came true. It’s really just inspirational about reading about these people who have gotten their dream. It is no longer a dream for them it is reality. The only weakness I could think of is that the chapters sometimes aren’t very long or descriptive.
My favorite profile from monday is about Dekalb Walcott Jr. and his son. This is all about his son Dakalb Walcott III wants to follow in his footsteps and become a firefighter just like his dad. “You were my Michael Jordan (pg56)” In the 1990’s he explains everyone wanted to be just like Michael Jordan but not him he just wanted to follow his dad's footsteps. He wanted to be just like his dad and start a tradition of being a firefighter just like his father. This is very inspirational.
I would like to be a Computer and Electrical Engineer. There are possibilities in Ohio for job openings and opportunities. I would not like to stay in ohio though for the reason that I do not like the cold one bit, I never like to have to wear long pants. My ideal place to live would be on the gulf coast of florida. My grandparents live there for 6 months in the winter and it is absolute paradise. I have checked while I've been there for vacations and there are good Engineering opportunities around their area.

  1. You and I wrote about the same profile and i really like the quote you used in your post.

  2. I like the choice of quote you used from the profile, it's a quote that had great meaning to his father.
