Day 31- Heather Carlberg

Quote 1: It is a page in a chapter. Don’t close the book, just turn the page. -Unknown

Quote 2: Be the change you wish to see in the world - Gandhi

Quote 3: You will never possess what you are unwilling to pursue – Mike Murdoch

Today, was the day we have somewhat anticipated, some in good ways and others in bad. Evals. This is our midcourse evals; the equivalent to our other WIU and High School buddies midterms. Except where they are about history and math, we are explaining and critiquing leadership and outdoor living. We have completed all told within our two eval groups, a total of 41/2 evals. Those lucky souls will then move onto a one on two session with our mentors, Jeff and Steve. After our evals were done, we ate Jen’s fab fettuccini alfredo with garlic toast and the left over tomato and chicken soups from lunch. Later, we anticipated the arrival of Dr. Mike McGowan to help us debrief the trip thus far. He highlighted that we are not yet in the storming stage, but we are not in the forming stage either. He also said we need to communicate to others of our thoughts on their behaviors, actions, and some times, their mentality. He warned that bottling it up is only going to make the situation worse later on. While we reflect upon today’s lesson, we can reflect upon ourselves and being the change we wish to see in the world.
