This week was pretty fun and decent! My mentee wasn’t really into the field trip as much but I tried to make it fun for him and he did seem to get into the mood a little more. The bus ride there and back wasn’t very enjoyable because I was feeling claustrophobic due to the crowded space in the shared seats. Overall, this week was fine.
This week went fine. My mentee was getting a little off task from a transfer student who came from another hour but he still got his work done. I’m not feeling confident in our showcase because my mentee wants to do something I want to do and I’ve already asked him a couple times “What do you want to do” and he redirects it back at me. I know he’s a considerate person and gets indecisive when I ask him for his opinion and when he does get indecisive, I get indecisive too and it’s all a big mess. I also feel that we’re going at a really fast pace and my mentee and I have to keep up with the pace. I think we’re rushing into the showcase a bit too much. I just want to do something he’s passionate about but I believe we have a mutual interest in the music topic so I think we’ll stick with it. I’ll try to be more confident in our showcase!
This week was just like the usual. My mentee and I got closer. We were able to make jokes and talk more comfortably, and I felt more open towards him. Our room was a little more gloomy than usual but I want to strive on with positivity and get everything done. We’re currently trying to figure out what we should do for our showcase and we decided on music, for now.
