the guest speaker

this morning we had a guest speaker Mr Patterson he came to talk to us about our future he asked a couple of people what is there dream job he pointed at me and I said game designer. after he asked everyone about there dream job he asked us to figure out a little math question it was about our motivation he told us to figure out what the letters stood for  it was motivation , inspiration , aspiration, it stood for aim to aim for our goals. 

he told us two story's the first story was about Mr Patterson at the airport in Australia his flight was cancelled so air New Zealand had to book a hotel room for all the people who were suppose to be on the plane. when he went to  the line he saw these two young adults with three kids at the back of the line so he put them all in the front of the line everyone in the line didn't complain about it they just let it happen. 

for the second story he told us that an eleven year old boy named Uili gave his lunch and his lunch money to a homeless man for two weeks the homeless man almost lost everything his job his wife and his house. after the eleven year old boy gave all his lunch money and lunch some people helped him as well now the homeless man has a job a rental home and is happy. in return for helping the homeless man the homeless man went to his school and told the school about what he did so Uili was rewarded a golden certificate. 

In conclusion Mr Patterson gave us a lot to think about for our future and that it has challenges in the future when we get older but to go for our dream job and to help others out in need like give someone at school doesn't have lunch then give the lunch to the person who needs it. I look forward to the future because then ill be older ,taller and hopefully have my dream job about being a game designer

    I enjoyed reading your blog post about the visit today to Team 5 from Andrew Patterson. He told us that Aspiration + Inspiration = Motivation. It sounds like becoming a game designer is your (A)spiration, what is your (I)nspiration?
