When I started my first year in high school at Old Scona Academic, my transition from junior high wasn’t the smoothest. I didn’t know what courses to take nor how to handle the stress. It was in these times that my school’s mentorship program proved invaluable. Returning students had the option of becoming a mentor for new students and my grade 11 mentor cleared up all my worries the second after I had them. So I took inspiration from all the help I was given and am now a mentor for a new grade 10.
This was very different to me because my past schools’ I was always the “new kid” that was not wanted around much, so having to be the center of attention in the new place with everybody wanting to know me and introduce me around was very pleasing and I never wanted it to end. But the thing is I was not the only new student to join, there was another student that was with me that did not get the same treatment that I was getting. At first I thought it was because he was alone and did not talk much. However, it turned to be because I was so overwhelmed by all this friendliness that everybody forgot about him. I could have gone to him and introduced him to everybody
I was ecstatic, unable to process what had happened to me. The next few months were electric, I rushed to make every arrangement I would need to attend this school. It was the start of my metamorphosis into the unique person I would become. College was a breath of new life blown into my lungs, filling my body with the desire to shed who I was and become something representative of what I was taught.
Initially when I registered for Interpersonal Communications it was solely to fulfill my USEM requirements and I reckoned the class as nothing more than an obstacle. My sour attitude did not last though, my first class on my very first day of college was my communications class and I felt extremely welcomed and intrigued. These feelings were reinforced when the second day of class brought an interactive outside activity. I happily participated in and the activity it created an enthusiastic impression within me for the classes to follow.
In my first semesters I have achieved one of my goals which was time management. I have shown changes towards time management by spearing myself time with family and friend and completing and taking my essay seriously, in my previous education of six form we were never asked to making a daft plan before writing the actual essay, as i am in university now it is a new experience which I shouldn't take for granted but use the opportunities. I have received feedback on my first semester essay. I was told to focus on what the question is asking me to do, be more indecisive with my work. I had to create a check list which I followed and stayed committed to this helped me finish and plan time properly and completing my work.
I have learned a lot about myself as a reader and a writer. When I first began class, I tried to read the DRP test. I had forgotten everything about college vocabulary that was on the test since I left the university in 2013. I had not read any books in a few months until teacher recommend for me to take fifteen minutes to read
I have not used a recruiter in 30 years, when I started in my field, but at the same time, I sent out applications from newspaper listings that I found from different states. The career center, was quite helpful in pinpointing and identifying the skills that I have end use for work. The values card sort helped me clarify what was important to me in my work environment and what was important in choosing a
An obstacle I overcame was getting classes. Since, I applied late to school due to not being able to decide which college would benefit me more I was behind with enrolling, for classes causing me to not be able to get classes. There were barely any classes left for me, but I eventually found the three classes I needed. Getting classes was difficult because it took me a week to finally get the classes I need.
But one day when the assignment for creating my own business assignment was assigned for that week I was really excited because I had a lot of ideas about my creating my own business I wrote them all in a journal long time ago but I never got to use those Ideas in any of the English class that I took but I got the opportunity in this class. When the assignment came I read through my journal to find the best idea for creating my business I found exports and imports because that Idea came to me with a real world experience. My company Exports and Imports is basically send and receive orders for top online shopping website amazon because last year on the date December 2
This quote reflects one of the important ideas that I have learned in this class. In the past, I typically thought of happiness as only an emotion. I never thought of how essential happiness would be to live an excellent life, let alone my health. However, as I continued to attend this class, I realized how important happiness was. I am sure plenty of you all have felt this, having to wake up early in the morning to trek to school to at 7:00 AM for a seemingly useless class.
Today, we had a staff meeting which I asked the guys to reflect on whee we’d come in a year. A lot of good things have come about through working hard and being diligent. This whole email thing was merely a tiny speck in the scope of the day as we were contending with radio issues again, working to knock out the PD web quiz, finishing a project for Leo and getting ready for the new GIS Tech. The response from Toby took me back but I decided in similar fashion to give detail to him as to why I did feel it was necessary.
I had never thought that being accepted would actually happen, and I had a suspicion that the school was not real. A month later, I went to build furniture and receive a tour of the school. Just recently, I started getting into my routine of waking up early and having my week almost full of after-school activities. I find it strange and oddly renewing after going to bed at ten and waking up at nine every day. I don’t know what to expect at school this year, but I hope that it won’t have too much of an impact on me.
