He Is Excited for New Experiences
Written by Jared Stewart, Director of Education
Recently, a ScenicView student in his last year at Brigham Young University decided to apply to an internship program in Berlin, Germany. He had been to Germany before, and he expected everything to be the same this time. Of course, it wasn't. It was great to see how flexible he has learned to be, as he adjusted to his new circumstances, setting, and role. Instead of being anxious and overwhelmed, he is excited for new experiences and ready for new challenges.
One More Set
Written by Lindsey Giles, Health & Fitness Coordinator
Previously when *Mike would get upset about something he would walk out of class and not return. This past week while working on finishing a set of exercises I congratulated him on only having one more set of that particular exercise left. Once he completed the set he thought he was done with working out for the day. I let him know we still had other exercises to complete to finish the workout. This upset him and he started to walk out of the room. I kindly let him know he could take five minutes to calm down and then he would need to come back if he wanted to be marked present for class that day. Less than a minute later he came back and let me know that the reason he was upset was that he thought he had finished his workout when I told him "one more set". We agreed it was a misunderstanding and he got back to work. When there was about 5-10 minutes left in class he said he didn't want to finish and was tired and again started to walk out. I reminded him that we still had class time left and if he left now he wouldn't have been here for all of class so would need to be marked tardy. He was given the choice to leave early and be marked tardy, stay and finish the weight lifting exercises, or stay and get on the treadmill. He chose to stay and finish his workout time on the treadmill. I know Mike has been working on being present for class and he really worked hard on accomplishing that this particular one on one session.

*Peter has severe anxiety regarding women and dating. When he first entered the relationships class, he had a melt down and refused to continue. He continued anyway and was often positive and engaging in class. For the relationships class, we have a group date at the end of the term where they practice the skills they've learned in class. They are required to ask a date of their choice to this date. Peter was anxious about this activity and adamant that he would not attend.
