What I learned About Myself

I learned a lot about myself during this project. I always knew the kind of fields I wanted to get into, but I didn't realize that those are the fields that I would be fit for.

It also made me realize how much money I actually have to make in order to survive in the real world and that I need to pick a job that pays good.

I've always liked to think about myself being a singer or dancer in the future, but I know that that's not a chance for me considering that I can't sing a note on key to save my life and I have no background in dance, but it's made me happy that I was put into categories that had those careers in it.

I learned many things about myself but I learned mostly but the things that I wanted to do as my career are the things that my personality would make me good at, and that makes me excited for my future.
