Before career day I wanted to be a forensic investigator because crime and law just really interests me. I like solving puzzles and mysteries. I read a lot of books with solving a crime or what goes through the criminal's mind as they are committing the crime. I also watch a lot of tv shows where they solve the crime or tell the stories of the crime, and that's what helped peak my interest in forensic investigation. Before the reality store I thought money was something you earned and then spent it on bills and taxes, and that you have to save money up every once in awhile, or when you want to buy a house or a car.
When we first started the reality store I thought that it would be easy, but a little bit after it started getting harder because you had to pay for all these things like a car, house, child care, insurance, and communications. It didn't help the fact that we all had a spouse that doesn't work. I learned how much stress this can put on my parents, and other family members with having to save money for the things that you need. I also learned that being an adult is harder than what teenagers think. I have more appreciation for my mom and dad, and any other family members. They have to go through stress just so they can keep a roof over their head, food in their mouths, and clothes on their back.
I learned a few things during the afternoon from the speakers. I learned that with forensic science come chemistry, biology, math, and other sciences. I also learned that you really have find what you want to do before you just go out and do something. You really have to think before you pursue a career. You have to think "Will I be happy with doing this the rest of my life?" or "Is this something I'm really interested in?". I learned you should find what your passionate about before doing any type of career. I took all what I learned as that you should follow what you want to do, but you should think if you'll be happy or not.
