My career goal is to become a radiographer which my dad first introduced to me and I found rather interesting, but my plan B is social work. My ambition to become a radiographer/social worker; this influences my learning in the sense that it gives me the wish to learn new things and improve my knowledge. I believe that if I did not have such a desire to be a radiographer/social worker, it would affect my learning by creating a mental blockage which would disallow my ability to take things in and learn; I would become lazy and uninterested from the lack of direction in my life as I did last year in A levels. As soon as I realized what I wanted to do as a career, it really shifted my priorities and I found that I have started to focus a lot more on my education and work hard. I have started paying more attention in classes than last year and im trying to produce good assignments which gain me the grades I desire.

Caroline Matkom A.P. Psychology Hour 6 “If you live your life the right way, your dreams will come to you.” This quote comes from the energetic, fit, and lively Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon University. From the cheerful and handsome man standing in front of the lecture hall, one would have never guessed he was admits his final months of a terminating battle with pancreatic cancer. The Last Lecture is indeed the last lecture Dr. Pausch ever performed, a retrospective, reflective testimony of his short yet passionate life. The lecture included varies aspects of Erik Erickson’s stages of psychosocial development, such as the elementary school stage, middle adulthood and late adulthood.
Instructor Helen Chandler English 1301-2023 February 9, 2012 “The last Lecture’s backgroung” The last lecture was for most of the students and readers a seemingly average book written by a writer who was going through a difficult health problem. That writer, Randy Pausch just wanted to let his audience know about his childhood dreams and how he achieved most of them. He shared with readers and listeners in one of his lectures how achieving their dreams is the best way to “live their life well.” However, going deep through the lecture, it is not difficult as an analytic reader, or listener in the case of being part of the speech, to figure out the rhetorical devices used in narration. Regardless, importance of this last lecture, these rhetorical devices were used in a very clever way to provide: clearness, persuasion, and sentimentalism. One impressive tool used was clarity, the structured and choreographed explanation between his personal and professional life, left nothing for the reader to ask for, every paragraph was clear and meaningful; by giving examples and using props to make him even more understandable, and reliable for his audience, Pausch led his readers and listeners right what he wanted.
Another equally important reason is that volunteering can help to increase students' self-confidence, self-esteem and life satisfaction. If students are doing a voluntary work, they deserve to be proud of themselves as they are doing good things for others and

To me, it is one of the most rewarding and satisfying things because I am able to make a difference in my community. It has taught me the value needed in order to be success, including teaching me how to be patient and thankful. They taught me to set a goal and accomplish it, take on responsibility and the most importantly appreciate things that I have right now. It disenchant me that I am lucky enough to have what I have right now since there are many people out there who cannot enjoy the facility I got. Previously, to be honest, I always want more and more, better facilities and life, however after doing community services my eye was opened and my heart began to change and flutter.
