In my first three years of high school, I have had many struggles that have taken me on a different track than what I expected. My freshman year I had received four concussions. Some of these were sports related while others just happening by accident. These accidents left me missing tons of school and made me fall behind. Classes were hard to keep up with mentally as well as emotionally. Not being able to keep up with my classes lead me to having to take incompletes in a couple of my classes and making them up at a later date. Through my freshman and sophomore year I struggled to heal and spent most of my time with doctors rather than teachers at school. Once my junior year came, I started to return to my old self and began being able to handle
Music is a rhythmic mix of notes and silence that is put together to be heard in harmony. Anxiety is a mental illness in which a person has excessive feelings of stress, worry, and anxiety strong enough that it controls their daily life. Music can be used as a temporary treatment for anxiety as a way to distract the person 's focus from what causing their anxiety to stir up. I believe in music as a anxiety treatment.
This morning I received an email regarding my dismissal from the College of Nursing program. I am aware that I have failed NUR 250: Knowledge Foundations with a 71, instead of a 73. I’m writing this appeal letter to explain the cause of my poor grades and to ask you to please reconsider me to continue my progression into the nursing program.
I was born in Sinaloa, Mexico. Characterized by drug cartels and violence, my hometown was not a viable option for a successful education. My family and I immigrated to the United States when I was three years old. I entered school shortly after my arrival and was placed in low academic classes. However, I learned English quickly and managed to be put in honors classes in a matter of months. Growing up, I did not realize the disadvantages that being an immigrant creates. I entered high school with a dream, to be the first person in my family to attend a university. Because of my legal status, I realized that there are obstacles getting in the way of my college dream; I cannot participate in certain academic programs, nor do I have access to college advising. I am excluded from most scholarships that are offered making paying for college challenging. These obstacles have really tied me down making the path to college seem almost unattainable.

I could no longer afford to pay my cell phone bill because I had ran out of funds. Unfortunately, my phone had been turned off, After one month, I knew my family started to worry about me so I called one of my aunt to let her know I was fine. She said she was very worried and she even called campus safety and they told her to email me. Then, she offered to pay my phone bill so that my line could be turn on, I told her not to bothered because my phone is broken. I did not want to talk to anybody about what I was going through, I was miserable, I hated myself. At the end of of the semester, I knew I was going to be suspended because I knew how I performed. I wanted to run away, I did not want to return to my home.
High school has impacted my life in so many ways. High School taught me so many things, from personal relationships to creating a relationship with my education. As a freshman, I made a huge amount of mistakes and I regret doing foolish things, but I’ve realized, I was only maturing into the young adult I am today. Freshman year, I was out of focus and I was only trying to find myself. I would also prioritize other things and ignore my parent’s advice, where they would tell me to focus in school and give it my full attention. It took me about 2 years to find myself and know where I belonged. My behavior has improved, I know how and when to approach people. I’m also more involved with my education and I make goals for myself. I’m done having
Okay let’s talk about all the stuff that I suffer from at this current date and time, there’s Depression, ADHD, Dysgraphia, and Hypomania; as you can see I drew the short stick in life’s gifts. But as much as my ADHD has helped with me hating long term goals my depression has definitely made it much worse than it was. So ever since Freshman year I had been determined to know what I wanted to do to my life and with the schools constant “Look at how well you have to do because you come from Fairfax County Public Schools”, I started stressing about this for so long that in my sophomore year I snapped and would end up breaking down emotionally, mentally, and at some points physically all because my mind wanted me dead and my body really didn’t want to put up a fight all due to the fact that I was so screwed up because I constantly had F’s in Math. This would end up with me attempting several times before checking myself into a hospital to try and stop. But as soon as I was back in the school building I started freaking out again at all the work I missed and would relapse again staying in the program longer and deciding I wanted to live life with the least amount of stress
Blues burst from the shadows of the buildings, contrasting with the vermillion glow from the nearby windows, while sickly greens still lurked in the curtains, illuminating his whole being. Clinging to the curtain in the middles of the chaos, he looks toward his apartment, not in fear, but in euphoria.
At the beginning of my high school career, I knew grades were important but, I never knew how vital until the end of my eleventh-grade year when I began "college hunting." I realized that with a low GPA nobody wants you at their university because you 're a representation of them so, when you look bad they look bad. Soon after, knowing what had to be done, I prepared myself for the final year of high school with new study habits, motivation, and a new mindset on the grades I 'll accept because I was "Passing."
I never knew anything about what a Worldview was, until I started reading the required material for this course. What is a Worldview? To me, a Worldview is the way we see the world through our own eyes. How we navigate through life day to day. It is what we believe to be true or reality. Professor Weinert defines it as “foundational beliefs embedded in a shared story that gives shape or direction to our individual and corporate lives, and points us towards a specific vision of the “good life”. Everyone has a Worldview. A person’s Worldview can be affected by many things: by their culture, background, traditions, their relationships with people, their experiences and life situations. These can vary from person to person. Looking back
Junior year was that year in high school when I realized that I wanted to become recognized as someone in my school. I wanted to become involved in everything because I knew that next year, as a senior, I would start on my college applications and wanted to write down a list of accomplishments to brag about. There was a variety of sports to get into, but I thought that getting into well-recognized clubs would definitely make me look like an accomplished student.
Depression is a topic that it’s not mentioned very often, as someone could feel embarrassed or afraid of other people’s comments about them. Depression is a very special topic to me, it is hard for me to even type it out like this, but I do it because it could help me and I want to spread the awareness of dealing with depression. Have you ever felt like you are the only one in this world? Have you ever felt like everything is falling apart because of you? Have you ever beat yourselves up because you are not doing as good as others are? And one more question, what is depression?
School is one of the most memorable moments you will experience in your life, are those moments when you find a second family in your life called “classmates”, they start being strangers to classmates, classmates to friends and friends to brothers and sisters, you spent every single day of your life for more or less 2 years of your life that you start to know them more than anybody.
