Since, I do not find writing interesting this makes me procrastinate. I put the assignment off until the very last minute. Sometimes I second guess myself wondering if I am going to be able to have it done before the deadline, then I think, “I always manage to pull it off.” Since having children, I have become horrible at time management. My evenings are spent with my children and husband. After they go to bed is when I can work on my school assignments.
I was always afraid of the mistakes I would make in grammar, or not have anything to write in my essays. Once I started writing, although it was very challenging I managed to complete them, as I sensed it was an important skill to possess. I also believed it would help me to become a more proficient writer for my other courses, therefore, I wanted to complete this course of study prior to the other classes. What I didn't comprehend was that this course would also make me a more self-assured individual. In new situations, it always makes me a bit
Many times I found myself waiting till the last minute to complete an assignment. Through many “all-nighters”, I was able to finally change my work ethic towards the end of the year. Next, I have learned how to identify many literary devices and implement them into my writing. In
That was how I first came into realization of my expectations that were needed to be met in order for me to pass the class. I believed my writing will improve drastically as I learn what my weaknesses were and how could I prevent from making the same mistakes. At first, writing
There were some assignments that I have done poorly on. For me as a writer the topic of the essay matters the most. I can’t motivate myself on a topic I don’t personally like, well I would just write something and get a grade which is still fine, can’t get everything I want in life. This semester there was only four writing assignments
(Cottrell,S,(2013), She quotes that students always find too to proper themselves properly. It will take time but the quickly i must act upon taking steps by steps so changes can happen accordingly. I should always have the date of the deadline close so I know how to plan which days I want to spear time on work just whilst I have time, to start early and not last
To ensure that I did not have lower grades I started picking up in my second year, my grades in the third year were very encouraging as I paid serious attention to all the courses. I never missed any class unless there was a need to and I took office hours with lecturers very seriously. I would not relax until I completely understood a topic. My determined nature helped me to improve my grades. Each semester was an improvement on the other.
Along with that, I will engage with my peers and the class more than normal to create a good learning environment for myself and hopefully my peers. If I need help with anything I will not be afraid to ask and I also hope to be able to help others along the way. What do you think are the most important concepts we’ve discussed this first
There will most likely be times where I complain and get upset, but I am willing to work through it. In conclusion, the most significant concept I want to improve is putting all my thoughts together and organized into a well written paper. I also commit to putting a larger effort into accepting my mistakes and fixing them. I know this class will prepare me for the future for the reason that my struggle with communicating in writing is not something I can avoid. It is a skill that I will need everyday, through college, through a career, and throughout my whole
My goals for this semester are to get at least a B in all of my courses and to not procrastinate my homework or studying until the last minute. Each week I will plan out exactly when I will do homework and when I will study. I think designating a certain time each day to do homework or to study will help me to time manage better and not wait to do it until the last minute. Each week I will also sit down and make a to do list for the week. The to do list will include all assignments, reading, and studying I have to do each week.
