During the week, I met one kid who was most excited and eager to try fishing. He would talk about how he loved watching fishing videos but never got the chance to try it. Once he saw us set up he waited for the fishing poles to be ready and began to fish. I will never forget how happy he was when he caught his first crab. Catching the crab really must have made his day because he stood fishing for almost the whole day and joined us back out on the dock after our break was over at 2.
On Thursday we had one of the members of the board of the Children Museum speak with us. She was part of a team which works together to other organizations to receive funding in order to support the museum. Hearing about how she got the job and the way her life was going made me realize that not everything can be planned out and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes thing happen for a good reason and they are so you can develop further in life.
The lady who spoke with us talked about her degree in communications and how it helped her land the job at the museum which she would have never thought about if a headhunter did not approach her and tell her she would be a good fit for the job. This discussion really changed my view on what I want to become once I get older because I could want to do one thing which may not work out and could end up going in a completely different direction which is okay!
