3 First, in the construction field there are many opportunities that allow me to show my talents. I am good in mathematics, which helps me figure out how many studs are needed to go in a wall that is a certain length. I also like working with power tools. I use saws, jackhammers, drills, and other tools that help me perform the task that needs to be done. Coordinating time and dates for subcontractors is also important. It allows me to see who is on site, and when they should be done. These three skills help me perform my job well in construction.

13 One of the hardest parts of attending school is the time constraints placed on me and my family. At home, I will have to juggle time with my family, time for homework, and time to sleep. For instance, I have less time for our game night that is when we all play a game together. It is because I have to do homework that makes me miss out on this special time I use to spend with my family. I miss out on sleep simply because I work full time on top of going to school, and spending time with family. There are just not enough hours in the day. In the end, though, these obstacles and sacrifices of time and sleep will be worth it in order for me to better provide for my family.

22 Breathing sounds so simple, but few of us breathe correctly especially under stress. Controlled by two sets of nerves, one belonging to the voluntary nervous system and the other to the involuntary nervous system, breathing is the only function that a person can do consciously or unconsciously. Under stress, however, most of us tense up and hold our breath, tightening our stomach, which doesn’t allow for breathing easily. Because the breath is the bridge between both systems, we can gain control of our autonomic nervous system and reprogram it by the simple act of slow, deep, regular breathing. The next time you feel tense or under pressure remember to take a couple of deep breaths and relax; you will feel the difference.
