ACO 4.0 - Communication Strategies
My communication changes drastically depending on who I'm talking to, when I speak to people that aren't my friends my language is normal, a bit "scuffed" but that's only because of my language with friends... The language that me and my friends use when we are together becomes very primitive, I become immature and we speak of nothing important, but it's all for the fun. I don't really use swear words because I think that they are useless. I feel the most understood with the people that know me but not too much, like the people that don't hang out with me, but see me at school. Because they do not think I am in a "joking" state, they see me as a smart person and not a caveman. I do not think that the way I will speak to my friends will change, it is too much fun to be crazy for a minute and laugh for a bit. Maybe I could be more comfortable speaking to others, I feel like before I meet friends, I speak to people to have friends, but once I have acquired some, I do not want more. So I become less of a talkative person when it is not about my mates.
I really want to learn more about coding, I want to be an electrical engineer so learning it would be very helpful to start off. I got inspired by a family friend, he is one and works on interesting projects, I was thinking about wanting to become one before I met him so it increased my passion towards it after seeing what he does. I think I need to learn to be more social with people around me. Because if I do not talk, I don't think people will approach me to ask me anything. To be an engineer you need to use that knowledge to teach other people, so they can help you do what you want to do. I need to express my ideas more to people, less to myself.
