Work Experience When we were first told about work experience I thought to my self 'great no school for two weeks.' I was looking forward to looking around places and trying to figure out what and where I wanted to do my work experience. I've always been good at doing things with beauty and nails and therefore I was hoping to find somewhere I could experience more about that. I started looking around in November and found many places where I would like to spend my two weeks of work experience. Most of the places I looked at involved sweeping floors and cleaning floors and sweeping floors and cleaning and more cleaning, this was not how I wanted to spend two weeks of 'no school' so I decided to look at other places like boots and cloth stores. I asked around at many different department stores and many of them said yes and told me to bring in more information and I told them that I would be back in the next two weeks with the forms that needed filling in. Two weeks went by and I forgot to go back and then I just got lazy and couldn't be bothered to go. I kept telling my self that I had plenty of time left and that I would find a placement closer to the time. It was now June and it was becoming clear to me that I had to find a placement in the next few days as Mrs. O'Connor was having a go at me and other students about not having a placement and even my tutor Mr. Hillman started having a go at me. With only 3 weeks to go until work experience I still hadn't found and succored a placement and it got so serious that Mrs. O'Connor was calling me out of lessons to find out what was happening and at one time she even threate... ... middle of paper ... ... was lovely and it was a perfume that I liked that I didn't have. There were many things that I learnt from the experience and the most important I think is that we should not take advantage of life. Everyday I would meet over ten elderly people who came in to collect medicine everyday. Many of them went home with bags full of medicine and I felt so bad knowing that I have a healthy life whereas for these people it must have been hell taking all these different medicines. I spoke to a few of the elderly people and they said that they spent more time taking there medicine than living there life as it was always on their mind that at a certain time they would have to take there medicine and it made me wonder if the things that eat and do are the right things to do if I don't want to end up like some of those people.
