Journal 9 by Hannah

I think my favorite profile so far in this book is the interview with the dad and son oil riggers. I really liked this one because it had a really interesting but sad story to it. It's not that I liked that it was sad, but sad stories always draw people in and get them really interested. Gayle explained his memories of his father before he died, and then he talked about his dreams and what he ended up doing. His dad was a huge inspiration to him. His father told him, "'Give it your best shot, and never give up'" (Isay 101). I really like this quote because if you really want to do something, I think you should just go for it. Then, if it doesn't work out then you can always try something else. You never really know how it's going to turn out unless you try.

For a long time, I had always considered being a band teacher but I never tried to pursue it because I thought that the music department was kind of getting pushed out and I didn't think they made enough money. After working with the salary of an EMT, I realized that money definitely wasn't the issue. I learned that I could always make it work. So this school year I decided to go for it. I feel like being a band teacher is my dream job and my practical job. I have also considered other careers though, just in case. If I could do everything that I wanted to do, I would be a band teacher, a medic in the military, and probably a performer. I know after I start my teaching career, I'm not going to have time for a medical career anymore. If I had it my way I would do both. I would even advance my medical career because I love helping people. Also, I know I'm going to be performing throughout college, but I know that'll end when I graduate. Performing is one of my favorite things, so I would do it forever if I could. But teaching others so that they can perform is even more rewarding.

  1. If you joined the military, what branch would you join? keep in mind the marines don't have a medical MOS, we use the navy.
