During this week in Biology, my group and I got to cut into the digestive and the nervous systems of a fetal pig. At first I was nervous to cut into the head of the pig because I didn’t want to accidently hurt the brain, but after we got help from one of our peers we were able to see how we actually had to cut. Something that I learned this week from the pig dissection is that I can’t afraid of making the cuts. There are time that I want everything to go perfectly, that I hesitate to do things. I know that sometimes things aren’t going to be the perfect situation and I have to be able to work through it. This fear of everything having to be perfect is what sometimes holds me back, but recently I have learned that I have to just go for it. The pig was such a learning experience for me, not just with the biology part but also, I learned that it was okay to make mistakes, because you can always improve on everything. I think that this fear comes in because I’m afraid that if what I do isn’t perfect, my work or efforts, isn’t going to be good enough. I always want to live up to people’s expectations and my own expectations, that I make myself scared of failure.
