Be the best and beat the rest
Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen. yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
This week of 6, I done lots of activities but the most interesting one is when I have to take care 60 students in bus and bringing them to Michigan State University for the FFA Spring Skill Contest. These past few activity have been filled with laughter, learning and a lot of love, due in large part to all of my students from freshman year at the Montague High School. Spring FFA Skill Contest is one of the contest that been done every year. The contest are Agriculture Businnes, Poultry Quiz, Foltriculture, Agriculture Presentation and Vet Science. I had so much fun that becauce upon they all done their contest we are all having chatting outside the hall and share my experience about having my teaching practical in Malaysia for one month before I came here. Whats a great day with them!
Since im in USA, I would love to learn and study about how US Culture will be, so that’s why my assistant teacher Mr.Letot has make a planned for me to put me at my host family, Ms. Lemmen. Because people are people. From every corner of this Earth, there are individuals out there, who only want to make the world a better place and share their love. We all want to be loved and need to do more to find these people and break out of our scared shells caused by only seeing what is in our backyards. So I have done a lots during this weekend with her family. Its very awesome. I learn how to eat western food without rice, how to make a corn crop using big truck, go two tracking inside the woods of Michigan, riding four wheelers and ranger and learning how to shoot using a real guns at Michigan state University. I am very enjoyed that US culture is so fun. Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
I was visiting church during my weekend there for the sack of new knowledge. For me learning about othere religion doesn’t make you feel bad because you can be matured and be open minded from that. I shared with paster Rick and Philips about Islam and they shared me about Christian. Actually differentiation can make us connect because for me eventhough we are in the different religion but we still together in this world. We are need for each other so why would we have to fight just because of small things. I am very happy to learn about Christian and share about islam with them. This will be the best experienced ever from the last weekend. Eventhough im muslim but I have to say that we as a human need to have global minded to make us survive in this challenging world 🙂
There are good and bad people in every religion and faith in the world, but we cannot let the bad overshadow the good. No matter how many differences can be spotted, this experience has allowed my new family to grow, with members of many different faiths. I cannot wait to see how myself shares my love going forward. Here is to a strong finish and more adventures to come with this family even after our experience concludes.
I consider myself blessed to have been able to find some of the greatest people on this clinical teaching programmed.
