A Few Rough Roads That Smooth To A Beautiful Highway!
Today was one of those days where I had to battle my way through. I think it is impossible to go through one of those phases. What happened is that the group I was invited to, did not have the same enthusiasm I had. I also see that just because the institution is of higher learning, does not mean that some of the others strive for the same goals. For the project, I have to create 5 minutes to represent South Korea’s economy.
I felt like I was in a battle to keep control. I had to do everything I could to make sure that everything works. I had to fight to keep on moving. It is a good thing that I was a part of the Ivy League Connection because they help drive me to keep on trying and to know that I am here on a mission to higher education. It is also to represent the District in this Ivy League college.
The project is the one where our group must create an analysis of a region and it is divided by each having their own country. This is a very important project because it is the very first one. Even though it had a shaky start, I saw this as a learning experience because it made me think about more than convenience, but also the drive to learn. I know why I am here and that is to learn. I am not here to goof off or talk to girls or even join certain groups, but to learn and represent the District as be.
As for class, we covered a large amount of material today. These things included Financial Markets and many more. These continue to intrigue me because I never expected so much. One thing that especially caught my attention is the fact that the New York Stock Exchange is a secondary market because they sell “used” stocks while car loans are primary because they are brand new and did not have a prior owner.
