Day 23, Thursday: Things you’ve learned that school won’t teach you
Okay, the blog every day in May challenge is getting very hard. I’m tired so perhaps this is not my best effort.
School did not teach me how to be social. I know it’s part of my personality, but in the last few years, I’ve realized how much I enjoy talking to people, especially if it is a topic that I’m passionate about, like a favorite book, or my job! In my last job, I loved giving presentations. I found I enjoyed them because I wanted to help my coworkers and improve our oncology research. In college, I used to get nervous and speak too quickly when I presented, now I’ve found the more interested I am in the topic, the more calmly I present.
I’m not sure if this advice would work for everyone, but find something you love and talking about it will be easy!
