When I was asked what I wanted to be when I got older, I had always said something along the lines of a nurse or doctor. I wanted to help people’s health in some way, and the money factor had always been in mind too. After the reality store I then realized what it was like to have to not only pay for yourself and the things that you want, but I had to pay for a family and the things that we needed, which is a lot more than what most people expect.
The first part of the day started out with the reality store, we had got a check, and assigned job, and family that we needed to pay for. Life is more expensive and difficult probably more difficult than any of the kids our age understand, so I now believe that all the kids our age need to appreciate the little things that our parents go through for us because they do spend a lot and do a lot for us even if it’s not the things we would want them too.
Later in the day we had gotten to go to the high school to listen to three people speak, these people had something with a career choice that had been chosen for us through a survey of the things we liked to do. I got to sit through a CSI and forensic science speech, a social media and sports speech, and a STEM and math speech. The one I personally found most interesting was the social media and sports because he explained that what you want to do now as a teenager you probably won’t end up doing in the future whether it be because of expenses or because your likings have changed. You change and see the world differently when you are given scenarios like the ones we were given for the reality store. Life is what you make of it, you can give yourself a budget and not worry about spending too much and having money issues, and you can continue school and get a good paying job in the outcome. There are so many things you can do to improve your life before you become an adult, appreciate the things that others do for you now because you will have to be doing it in the future for someone else.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
