“But at least I tried.” One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest. Ken Kesey The world we live in definitely would be less exciting if not the people who do not want to put up with the existing conditions. Constantly warned by cautious friends that they will not succeed, these courageous people keep trying to change their lives and lives of the contemporaries for the better. I began to study in Dr. W.’s ELL class three weeks later than the others. My classmates immediately told me that she was a real witch and no matter how hard I would work, I should not expect to get anything higher than “C”.
My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
I was the youngest in the class because of how smart I was. I was younger than everyone else in the class because I was more ahead of them. I got straight A’s in school and my teachers always praised me on how smart I was until I got to my Fourth grade teacher who told me I would never make it. This teacher made me feel bad for who I was and would kick me out for not focusing on her work or for “Disrupting” her class. When I went to the doctor who diagnosed me for what I really had I was diagnosed with Severe ADHD which means my brain works very fast and makes it so I don't stay focused on one thing.
Colonel White stood in the front of the room and bellowed, “ And your company commander….. Vaden.” JROTC has changed my life. The moment I started ROTC, I felt as if it would be the worst four years of my life. I couldn’t believe my mom was making me do this, and she wasn’t taking no for an answer. I had always had this idea that ROTC was like a class for children in high school who was just too lazy to run a lap on the track. Maybe their parents forced them, but I just felt like it wasn’t for me.
In every science class I’ve had good grades. For example, on my sophomore year I’ve heard many negative comments about chemistry. “Do not take that class, you are going to struggle.” or “ Dude, chemistry f****d me over” But even though from such negative feedback, I still persuade to took that class. By mid year i was surprised I had a B as my grade. In general, I see science as a very interesting subject.
How Stupid I am and Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Accept Me Dear admission officer, I know it will be a boring essay for you if I tell you about how sad my life is and I didn’t want to brag about how brilliant I am either. So, to catch your attention, I have decided to write an essay about how stupid I am and reasons why you shouldn’t accept me into your school. In my first semester on primary school, I was ranked 48th out of 60 students but surprisingly, I was 15th the next semester and 7th in my third semester. Since then I keep improving myself until now on my last year of senior high school, I am the first in my class. I don’t mean to show off but I can’t really resist the temptation because I worked my way out all the way from the bottom to this point.
Every parent wants their son or daughter to get good grades but my parents wanted me to have perfect grades since then, I have had an issue perfectionism. In high school, I had done well in classes. But now that I am in the second semester of college, I am shattering apart even though in the prior semester I was on the Dean’s list. I have so much pressure in college classes, not to
It made sense to me. I never had a moment in time where I wanted to give up in an english class because it was hard. As those 2 Failures on my transcript indicate, that was not the case for me in math. With time to look over the outcome I realized I gave up. After I was out of school for around a month after my ACL surgery it was hard to catch up but It was not impossible.
High School Graduation The beginning of the Highs School year,was a new experience for me,because of begin alone in the school without knowing nobody, not knowing the language and have zero knowledge of the academic level i need it to have in order to graduate, on the mid senior year of high school,i got a call from the counselor Mr.Calume,he told me that, in order to graduate i need it to pass 4 states exams that can be only due 2 times per year semester,and i was in my last semester of high school,so the chances of me passing those test were low for me. There for, i meet some olds friends from when i was a child from my country (Venezuela) they have move to the same school i me,so they reached me some tips and trick to pass
It was the day that I’ve been waiting for over 3 years. A day that would finally let me be normal like everyone else and have the choices as other people without being ridiculed by the teachers that saw me as unqualified to be taught in a standard way. Thanks to my mom thinking that it would be a marvelous idea to have me be placed in special education due to my lack of effort taking reading comprehension test. I was placed in special education at the end of 5th grade, and sought to see the end of it. That day would eventually come on early April of 2015, where I was called upon to the office during class in 8th grade.
