On 3rd September, 2015 I decided to start going to gym for personal fitness. Going to gym was an activity that I wanted to do from a long time, but never had the commitment to do so, until 3rd September. I decided to regularly exercise at my school gym for four months from then.
The biggest trouble I faced in this activity was waking up early to go to gym in school. I started getting less sleep because of this. At that moment I really wanted to quit this activity, however, instead of quitting I decided to go to the gym near my house instead of the gym in school. This helped me get proper sleep.
We were only supervised by our mentor on the first day, and after that we were required to exercise on our own. This created ethical implications in the activity such as we were expected to productively use our time and also take care of the equipments in the gym. This even lead to teamwork as me and my friends were helping each other as necessary in the form of motivation and pointing out each other’s mistake.
I developed a lot of things from this activity other than fitness. The most crucial of which being commitment towards your goals. This activity made me realize how important it was to be committed in life.
I was inspired to undertake this activity partially because of the motivating quotes about coding and programming in my school and partially because of my own interest of creating games and applications.
While learning on the online website, I felt really proud of myself as I was doing something which would be beneficial for me in the future. Not only this, I was also always very excited to discover what the online course had for me next. In the process of taking this online course I developed new skills of programming and also gained knowledge about how programming is used in a variety of fields not narrowed down to IT.
This activity held an emotional relevance to me because I soon realized that this was only a step stone to my future in programming. It opened my eyes to the exciting challenges and life long learning. Coding and programming did not only help me in its field but also improved my concentration level and problem solving skills.
There were times when it really got difficult to cope because as it was an online course and also it was a completely new concept that I was taught. Thus, I had no such support in form of a mentor teacher who is physically present to solve any of my query. However, knowing how beneficial this course was to me and my future, I continued looking for answers on the internet and learning the most I could without giving up.
