For career day I thought that it would be a lot like it actually way. I figured there would be stations where certain things happened and I turned out to be correct. As far as money goes I thought that we would be given a piece of paper and every time we bought something we would have to subtract that from however much money you had, and I was very close but instead of us just writing on a blank piece of paper it was more like a worksheet and a checklist. Other than how I thought it would be I wanted it to be many things, too. I wanted to be able to do career day with my friends.
From the career day and reality store I learned that life isn't fair because I had a very low pay with three kids while some of my friends had a very high pay and no kids. I learned that having kids is hard work because you have to rethink everything, for example where you live, what kind of car you drive. Not only do you have to take care of your kids, but you have to take care of yourself and your spouse. I have found a new respect for my parents and for everything that they do for me and my siblings. Out of career day I have realized that life is hard and I need to make sure I get a good education now so I can have an easier life later.
Later in the day when we went to the presentations I also learned a lot of valuable things. When I went to a presentation about math I really payed attention because the jobs I am focused on require a lot of math, and I learned that not only will I need math but I will have to communicate with many people. The number one thing I learned from the whole experience is that life won't be easy, but if I get a good education and a good job I'll have it easier than someone who didn't.
