I reviewed my notes and I worked out practice problems to get the hang of solving the problems. I had to use a lot of outside sources as well, especially when it came time to do my homework. I usually went on YouTube searching for videos that provided example problems and explanations. I also went on the math section of Slader.com to look at examples and follow the steps of how to solve the problems. On the weeks that we would have tests, the teacher reviewed with us in class and I would go home and study.

The task was set through flipping a coin in class and individuals were each allocated a question to present on. From that moment onwards I was filled with dread. Firstly, I lost my coin toss for my first choice of topic and had to scramble through the other options to find an alternative. My fourth choice was thankfully still available.
I learned that really anyone can be who they want to be if they commit to their dreams. I believe if I keep pushing myself hard enough I will no longer hear the self-doubt I have about myself in college. Completing this exact course has showed me how important it truly is to have self-love, in the beginning what I looked for most was the o.k. from my partner because I did feel guilty that I could not find a job, and that I was not able to find one because of my high school diploma.

I rush to my computer to try to rewrite it. I look at the time and realize that I don’t have the time. I get ready and go straight to the school. I had four other classes before this paper was due, so in an attempt to make it better I spent all of them trying to rewrite.

The to do list will include all assignments, reading, and studying I have to do each week. This will help me to avoid accidently forgetting something and therefore cause my grade in the class to suffer. Each time after an exam, I will evaluate with myself what I thought I did well and what I thought I needed to improve on with my studying and test taking skills. If I get a grade of C or lower on any of my exams, I will make an effort to see the professor to discuss my exam and look over my exam. Each week I will read all the readings and make notes while I read, and if something does not make sense to me make a special note to ask about it in class or go to the professor’s office hours to ask the question.
