Hypertext Narrative Project

It all started like this.

After five years of hard work in high school, you need to choose what you want to do next with you life. Most of the students go to CEGEP. Right before entering this school you need to choose your field of study. This is where it becomes more difficult. What would I want to be; study to become a technical physiotherapist or go into a tremplin DEC.

Choice 1 : Technical physiotherapy.

Choice 2 : Tremplin DEC.

Technical physiotherapy.

Now that I got accepted in this program, I am studying to become a physiotherapist. The first semester has a lot of theory. This means that there is a lot of studying to do. But since I am a bright student, I will be able to pass all of my seven classes. Since I live far away from the school and that the next semester had eight courses, I had to choose between leaving my school diploma with only three years of study or four years. But after reflection I might want to change program.

Choice 1 : Three years of study.

Choice 2 : Four years of study.

Choice 3 : Decide to change program.

Three years of study.

I know the fact of taking this technical program with only three years of studies means a lot of studying. I will put a lot of activities aside to be able to have good grades and achieve all of the courses. After three years in this program, I finally got my diploma. Now I have an important choice to make between going to university or finding myself a job.

Choice 1 : Go to university.

Choice 2 : Find myself a job.

Find myself a job.

With my diploma I can finally work as a technical physiotherapist. There are a lot of different places to work. I need to choose something that will make me love my job. I brought my curriculum vitae to two different places. They both called me to meet them in person to see if I am the right person for this job. About a week later the two places called me. Now I have to choose between working in a rehabilitation hospital or in a CLSC.

Choice 1 : Work in a rehabilitation hospital.

Choice 2 : Work in a CLSC.

Go to university.

With my diploma I decided to continue my studies. I got accepted to l'Université de Sherbrooke because I had good grades. I applied to two different programs. What I need to do is to choose between becoming a physiotherapist or becoming a kinesiologist.

Choice 1 : Become a physiotherapist.

Choice 2 : Become a kinesiologist.

Work in a rehabilitation hospital.

This is amazing, I got engaged by the Jewish Rehabilitation Hospital, in Laval. What is funny about working here is that my mother also works here. Rehabilitation hospitals are committed to the rehabilitation of patients that have different medical conditions, such as; neurological, musculo-skeletal, othopedic, etc. Since the patients progress, we need to follow their stabilisation of their acute medical issues. Each patient is different. I need to make a training program that is personal to each patient. If the patient wants to feel better and stronger, they need to respect their their appointments. They also need to do the exercises that we give them so they can get their maximum function back.

Work in a CLSC.

The CLSC's are the point of entry to the health and social service network. They offer medical and psychosocial services to any patients in need. My job as a technical physiotherapist in this business is to help the patients maintain their physical heath and if it is possible, to improve their physical capacity to do everything they were doing before their injury. My goal is to help as many patients as possible.

Become a physiotherapist.

My goal will be to restore, maintain and promote mobility and function. My path will look like this: 1st year Develop my biomedical and psychosocial knowledge as well as my clinical skills. We also have the chance to go on a one week internship. 2nd year We will browse the principles and methods of evaluation, as well as the key concepts of the intervention. We will apply our knowledge during a five-week internship. 3rd year We will continue our training by specialized assessment in neurology, musculoskeletal and cardiorespiratory.

Four years of study.

I completed my first year with only three years of study. After reflection and hard work, I wanted to do better in school so I changed for four years of study. The fact of living far away from the school was very hard. First of all, I had a minimum of 1 hour and a half of road to do only to get to class. Since the third semester had a total of nine classes, I decided to finish my diploma in four years. I knew that with little hours of studying, I will be able to complete this program with higher grades. But now I have to choose between finding a job of going to university.

Choice 1 : Look for a job.

Choice 2 : Go to university.

Look for a job.

YES!!! I finally got my diploma. Now I can work as a technical physiotherapist. There are many places where I can apply for work. I need to choose something that I will love for the rest of my working days. I love sports so much that I might thing of working for a sport center. But I also had another idea. I want to open my own company. Now I need to choose between these two choices.

Choice 1 : Sport center.

Choice 2 : Open my own company.

Sport center.

Here I am starting my new job in a GYM. Many people think that going to the gym is only about being in a better shape. It is a lot more complicated than it can seem. This is where I come in. I help people obtain their goals. I guide my client so he or she can work all types of muscles without any injury. I guide them during their workout, help them get stronger or healthier. I make sure that their blood pressure and heart rate is okay. I give them a training program that they can follow to keep them healthy. I love my job.

Write a choice here.

Open my own company.

I worked for a company for over two years, but now I want to open my own company. I want to have my own business and be more independent. Since I already worked for a company I made myself a name. This means that people already know me, so it will not be too difficult to start my company. I will rent a place and make this clinic as great as I can make it. There will be different types of sport equipment. Other technical physiotherapists will be work for me, as well as a physiotherapist and a receptionist that will take care of all the appointments for the patients.

Write a choice here.

Go to university.

I finally got my diploma. This means that I can go to university. I want to go to l'Université de Sherbrooke. I applied in two different programs and this means that I need to choose between becoming an occupation therapist or teach in physical education and health.

Choice 1 : Become an occupational therapist.

Choice 2 : Teach in physical education and health.

With this program l will learn in real situations what it is to become an occupational therapist. This is what my future four years will look like. 1st year We will study the foundations of occupational therapy.

Decide to change program.

This is something no one, not even myself would have thought of thinking of. After two years of studying as a technical physiotherapist, I don't think I want to do this for a living. Since my mother has been working for the Jewish Rehabilitation Hospital for over 19 years, I think this influenced me. The reason why it would have had influenced me is because I have been going to work with her since as long as I can remember. But now I want to choose something that I want to do. The only thing that I am not sure with is; do I want to stop studying before making a choice or become an accountant, something that I have always been interested in?

Choice 1 : Take a year off.

Choice 2 : Become an accountant.

Take a year off.

My choice has been made. I want to travel all around the world. I want to visit different countries. I want to meet new people. But I need to come back to reality. This will not bring me nowhere. So, I need to stay in school and find something I want to do. But what do I do follow my head and travel or do I follow my heart and stay in school?

Choice 1 : Travel.

Choice 2 : Stay in school.

Become an accountant.

I have decided to go study in something that I have always been interested in. All I need to do is finish CEGEP with a degree in Accounting and Management Technology. Once I get this diploma I will be able to choose between finding myself a job or going to university.

Choice 1 : Go to university.

Choice 2 : Get a job.


I have decided to travel all around the word. My goal is to find out who I really am and who I want to be. I will be visiting different countries all around the world and my trip starts now. I hope when I get back, I will finally know what I want to become. Hope to see everyone soon. BYE!
