Day 1:About Me
My name is Elvia i'm a very shy person and even though i don't have a hard time making friends; when they come up to me, i do have a hard time going up to some one new or talking in front of a group of people unless i now the well. My one of the resons i singed up to come to OMSLI is to work on my shyness by being here i'm not only opening up doors for my self i'm also getting rid of my weakness and making new friends while i'm at it.I am giving my self the oportunity to meet people i would not have met other wise.
Day2: Challenge course
When i woke up this morning i was not expecting my day to end as it did i had to wake up early so i was iri iritated.since i found out that we were doing the challenge course i side i was not going to participat because i'm afraid of hights and another resone is that i did not want to make a fool of my self in front of everyone. I noticed that the people here do not care weather you make a fool of yourself, and that every one works toghather thats part of the fun,they just want you to try. To day i found out that im not as sceard of hights as i thought i was and even though im not planning on doing it again at least not for a long time i happy that i overcame my fear at least some wast and tried, and thats thanks to the people here at OMSLI so thanks guys.
Today was spent discussing our goals, our choices and our problem solving, I learned that I solve problems and make choices using a method without thinking but know that i know that method i can teach it to my peers and family when i go home.i also learned that communicating is one of the only ways you can work at solving a problem while working in a group.
