What Did I Learn From This Activity And How Did This Learning (ie A Change In Perception) Apply To Me As A Person?

I can confidently say that this CAS experience has changed my life. And I mean it. But the interesting part is that it has changed me in a multitude of ways and each change came from a different If you’ve read my entries, you know that I really wasn’t a nature person until I decided to join the project. So, that’s actually the first way it changed me; it broadened my horizons to include an side of our existence that I didn’t really care about before, really. When it came to world issues, most of my focus went towards politics and such…
But I would be lying if I said that it was the only way it changed me. And frankly, if it was, that would be pretty boring. If the only thing I took away from this experience was just surface level “I care about nature now!”, then CAS wouldn’t really be fulfilling its purpose, or at least I wouldn’t be drawing much from it. One of my main takeaways from this was that I got a new perspective on what being motivated means. Rochelle, my partner, is the textbook definition of motivation and dedication. To see her so invested in the project gave me a notion of what it means to actually care about something. I wouldn’t be lying if I said I’m the kind of person who doesn’t feel strongly about anything, really; so seeing someone so dedicated to things that actually matter inspired me a lot.
That’s the main takeaway I think. It put a lot of things in my life into perspective, and kick-started some changes in my life. It may not have been the main goal of CAS, and Rochelle most certainly didn’t do it on purpose; but I think it’s one of those cases where you’re shaped by the environment you live in.
