A Rewarding Experience "****, the hospital says the placements they had available have been taken. I told you to get it sorted, but no, you never listen, the last time you listened was when you were two years old, you always leave everything to me and..." Mum went on ranting in the way that Mother's do when they find faults with their children and gladly pick them apart, chewing over every morsel of fault and spitting it out long enough to complain about it, at a volume which would wake the tone deaf elderly couple 50 miles away. Of course, some of those complaints listed errors I'd made as a young child, but of course the chances of making the same mistakes are so likely. Parents. Miss. Shilcock, Graphics teacher to me, work experience co-ordinator, (who pierces other students with a truly frightening look if they mumble they still haven't found a placement), to everyone else was the one who suggested I apply at St Joseph's Junior School.

I hoped she was joking. My experience at St Joseph's primary school, although not exciting as I took it for granted it might be, taught me a lesson and made me aware of how many worlds apart school life(a safe routine of going from one lesson to another) and work life are. People are relying on you constantly and expect you to do you're job without the kind of nagging it may take to prod reluctant students into turning in their coursework. My train of thought about what career I originally believed I'd eventually want to pursue, had sped off the railway track, in order to take a complex turn into another avenue of potential careers. My eager to help people, in particular young children, may guide me into the medical field. In an odd way, my fascinating work experience had helped me decide what not to do. ?? ?? ?? ??
