Over this semester, my writing is better than before because I can express my thought clearer and more logical. The thing that helps me make my ideas clearer is the discussion during SAGES seminars. Each time before I started talking, I always went through the words in my mind so that I could prevent stumbling over words. When I agreed or disagreed with an idea, I first thought about my arguments and in the end concluded my thoughts in a sentence.
During the second semester, through faith in God, and my determination to succeed, I worked hard to bring my increase my G.P.A and took advantage of the resources provided by Xavier, including, the writing center, tutors, and office hours, which helped me perform better and at the end of the semester, I received a 3.7 G.PA . I have maintained a high G.P.A since that day and even received a 4.0 in the previous multiple semesters. In addition, I made it my mission to retake some of the courses that I performed poorly in and earned an A grade in all of them. I have earned mostly A’s and some B’s in my college years, multiple dean’s list recognition, academic honors, and a cumulative 3.745/4.000 G.P.A. This not only shows my growth as a student but also shows my potential to succeed in Law
In order to achieve this grade, there 4 steps to complete. The first step is to be aware of the deadlines for all homeworks and projects. In order to achieve this, I must write down all of the due dates on my calendar and check it often so that I can be prepared.

The third step is to set aside time to work on any papers or homeworks for all classes so that I do not feel pressured or rushed.

The books are based on multiple topics, which will allow for more diversity within the reading materials.
ENG-122 Reflective Essay My writing process has changed tremendously over the course of this class. I feel more accomplished, confident and I feel sometimes that my ideas and thoughts just come in to my mind out of nowhere and I start writing about anything now. I pay attention to my punctuation and grammar more as I have polished them more now, not only when I write but then others write as well. I am constantly looking for errors and I highly think this is helping me a lot in my career.
Critical Reflection Unit Two Throughout the duration of Unit Two, my writing and research skills have improved significantly. Rather than writing on simply facts, I learned to analyze other people’s work in order to better understand their writing.

It is a skill that I will need everyday, through college, through a career, and throughout my whole
With completing the third semester in practicum placement, I was able to benefit from a variety of new things from the class. The placement gave me the opportunity to refresh my memory and skills in what I have learnt two semesters ago. My biggest huddle for this semester was my time management. I am a procrastinator, so completing assignments on time was and still is a challenge for me. I have not come to a full solution to this problem yet, but I did make changes in my life as to how I can manage time management.

Every dime I earn working at Reynolds Community College and every grant and scholarship I receive will go towards my passion of studying human behavior and applying everything I learn to bringing every community I can reach, a giant leap forward. After receiving my associates degree in Social a Science I decided to take a year off to work towards finding what it is that I really want to pursue. I have searched for that 'something ' that will keep me intrigued and awake all hours of the night without realizing it. I have eliminated the idea of simply working to make ends meet or finding a good job to support my family and "living" outside the 40+ hours of a weekday job. I am pursuing much more and I am confident that I have found a path leading me to wake up before my alarm clock sounds instead of praying for more time.
In the class we would stay the full hour and fifteen minutes. There are good and bad things about it to me. My good things were I got to be able to learn more and was about to know what was due the next class time. While my bad things are that sometimes I would be late to a doctor appointment, activation, and therapy because I have to stay in class the whole hour then go change and drop my stuff off to go to my appointments.
A full team meeting at least once a week to update its progress will also be very helpful. Our team has improved a lot since Thanksgiving, and we have been able to catch up with our timeline.
