My “threshold guardian: was most likely myself and my fears. At first, it took me a while to accept my responsibilities and get over my fear of failing and getting nowhere. Now that I am within the “unknown” there are many challenges that I face every day and will continue to face. There is the challenge of finding out what I want to study in college, doing well on standardized tests, and getting good grades in all of my classes. There are also temptations I have to face such as choosing whether to hang out with friends or do the homework that is due the next day.
The days teachers take off cause students more stress as a result. Furthermore, if year-round school was established, teachers will not be under as much pressure, which could impact the number of days they take off work positively. With year-round school teachers will have to spend less time reviewing and more time teaching lessons required by the government. Teachers need to follow guides and requirements for the classes they teach. They often feel rushed in teaching all the required information in one school year because of the time spent reviewing forgotten information (Priddy).
There were times during the first interview I found Bailey changing the subject in order to tell a more established story. The details yielded decent data to research but required more effort in analyzing. After the first interview, I spent a couple of hours revamping questions that still contained the same context for an answer but rephrased in a way that would guide her responses to be clearer. For example, Bailey always tried to tell a personal narrative in her answers so I incorporated her opinion into later questions for the second interview in a way that could help her provide an answer. Developing the performance has only presented an issue of “ums” and “uhs”, but that can easily be resolved.
Eat that Frog by Brian Tracy is a book for crammed professionals to help others stop procrastinating and get stuff done. I chose the book because throughout my collegiate career I have been used to procrastinating, getting things done at the last minute, during high stress situation. I hoped to learn the best ways to manage my time, my priorities, and my personal life. Tracy’s first tip is to “Set the Table”, his idea is to preplan your goals by laying them out before you begin the project. He also explains that it is important to set deadlines, prioritize tasks, and begin to work on your goals.
Traditions have been around for years, some being passed down from generation to generation while others are fairly new. Traditions explain why people act certain ways or why certain events happen. From academics, to cultures, to life, people follow their traditions because that is what they have always learned to do, reluctant to change the ways they have always lived. Many are scared of change, especially in traditions that have been around for so long, but changing traditional ways is inevitable because life is always changing. In “Project Classroom Makeover,” the author Cathy Davidson strongly supports changing the traditional education system because it is not keeping up with how modern students learn, with all these advances in technology

A behavior change is so hard because you are trying to alter what you’ve already been doing. I learned a lot about myself. I learned what my strengths and weakness are and how to manage and improve them. Hopefully, I can take this motivation and carry out my workout routine through the end of Freshman year and beyond, to improve myself physically and
Finishing high school while battling serious health issues is a very difficult task. Especially for someone who feels they are an overachiever in school. Ever since December of my junior year I have been dealing with stomach issues. Foolishly, my mom and I believed it was a stomach bug that would go away after a few days. However, my pain started to become worse and I started to miss school at least once a week, which made it very difficult to keep up with my schoolwork and grades.
I struggled a lot not only in English, but trying to adapt to this new life as well. Thus, I experienced loneliness and sometimes the fear of losing this new opportunity. I repeatedly felt the same day after day, and I yearned to go home the moment I arrived at school. However, there was something in my mind that urged me to keep going, to never give up. This voice I remembered, was my dad’s own strength to assuage my fear and to support me on my new journey.
Time management: Time management is a very crucial component if you are willing to have a productive lifestyle. To be honest, I have always had issues with managing my time efficiently. This problem had become a huge obstacle once I got into college. Thus, attending a lecture that focuses on time management helped me a lot with this problem by introducing me to different aspects related to time management: planning, SMART goals, and important/urgent matrix. Learning to make a specific plan for my daily tasks and make a to-do list to make my day as productive as possible is something very helpful which was advised to me by the instructor of this lecture Mr. Irfan.
