In this assignment I will reflect on three assignments we have done in survey. The three assignments I will reflect on are strength quest Futuristic Strength , Curriculum plan activities and the dream job assignment.

Futuristic strength- according to Strength quest assignment I am futuristic. The definition they provide is "In the Futuristic theme people are inspired by the future and what could be" To me this means that as a person I look to the future and how I can use the resources available now to prepare me for the future. I identify with this strength because I find it important to look live in the present while also looking towards the future and using the present as a way to better your future. This impacts my life in many ways, academically it means that I will plan ahead for exams and projects. Socially, it shows how I enjoy planning events and having plans to look forward to. Having the futuristic strength is important to me as a person because I believe you have to work to get to where you want to be in the future.

In the class we did many Curriculum plan activities to figure out what classes we needed to take for the future. Knowing that I am a futuristic person I found it important to plan my schedule for the next few semesters. Having a plan keeps you focused on goals and how to move forward. From this I learned how to spread out my schedule so that I do not have too many difficult classes that will be overwhelming. This will not only help me in the future but will help me now because this is the assignment that helped us create our schedules. Now I know what classes I am taking next semester.

For the Dream job assignment we had to look up possible jobs we'd want for the future. I enjoyed this activity because I know I want a future job in fashion. The job I found was a director of accessories job in New York City. I am from New York and want to live there. I love the city so possibly having a dream job there would be amazing. I learned with this assignment that I'm only getting to my dream job if I work hard. Using this knowledge I will work hard and look for opportunities such as internships and possibly study abroad to help me get to my dream job.
