The weather V/S Me

In the last couple weeks, the weather has been changing. One day is sunny and beautiful and the next day is raining and gray. A lot of people think that the weather has some effect in the people's mood. They think that sunlight and high temperature make people happier. Personally, I do not think the weather affect the people's mood. I think the people's mood depend of how is your life going on. It can be the  most beautiful day and if you are not in a mood, the weather it does not matter. However, I think sometimes raining days can make you feel a little bit of tiredness or bring people down. In general, I do not think the weather has some effect on people's positive or negative mood.
In another hand a lot of people take the bad weather as a big obstacle to do several things or to be happy or motivated. In my personal opion, I think we have to motivated ourselves in all the circumstances. Personally, I always try to solve whatever it happen and then keep going to my goals and dreams. I think the obstacles and unexpected circumstances in the life are just a lesson to grow up.

Besides the weather and obstacles, this is something that I want to share with all of you. Last monday, I had a really hard day at work. I asked myself couple of times during the day why am I doing here, I complain about my life, my job, in a few words I complain about everything. I thought today is one of the worst days in my life. And you know why was one the worst days in my life, just because I had some problems at work. On monday, I was not driving so at the end of my shift I walked to the train station. On my way to the train station I heard the train coming up, I started to complain one more time. I started to run to buy my ticket and catch the train on time. I got to the train station and I bought my ticket. The train was coming, so I started to walk to the yellow line to board the train. I saw the train was going to fast which means that it was not going to stop at the University Ave. So when the train was passing by, the guy that was stand infront of me jumped infront of the train. I was in shock I'd never seen someone finishing with his life like that. One second this guy was there and the next second he passed away. I do not what was he thinking but I do not think he finished with his life because he had a bad day at work. This unexpected experience make me think about my life. This experience taught me the value of the life and taugh me to enjoy the person who I am and what I have and  taught me about not make a storm in my life for small little things.

Learning Resources

Everyone says that Canada College has several and very good learning resources. Personally, I don't have time to go and use these resources. Last semester, I went to the Learning Center to make an appointment to see a tutor because I had doubts about what were the steps to follow to get a degree. So, I talked to a person and she gave some clues about the whole process of getting a degree. Also, when I enrolled in Canada College I asked for Financial Aid since I don't have enough money to pay the real fees. That was something that I really like it about Canada College because they helped me to pay my fees and it wasn't so hard to do it. I'm really happy about that assistance. Finally, I think I'm going to use the resources of Canada College because I believe we need to take advantage of them that's why they are there to be used for us.

Learning Resources

   I think the only learning resource I have used at Canada College is the library. The first time I went to the library I was totally lost. I was trying to find either books, internet pages or any other kind of resources to release my investigation; so in the beginning I tried to do it by myself but it was so difficult, so I had to ask for some assitance. I have to say that I got great assintance for the person in the front desk. This person gave me a personal help, and he showed me how to utilize the computer system and he showed me the books organization too. He also told me about the different ways that I can look in the internet. So in general I can say that the service that this person offer to me was awesome, and thanks to his service my experience in the library was not boring.
   Besides the library, I want to use the tutory service, and I know all that I need to do is organize my work and school time to make this possible.
