Taylor Jannsen made a good point when he said it is necessary to ask ourselves tough questions in life. Just like in the previous paragraph it pays to ask yourself if you are using your time in the best way possible or if you did the right or wrong thing today at school. I do find it hard sometimes because I don’t always want to accept that some of the choices I’ve made have been the wrong ones. Examining your conscience will make you feel better about the situations you’ve found yourself in. I can put this into action by recalling my actions and the choices I made during the day before I go to bed.
Writing about this helped me learn multiple stuff, I think that this bunch of information I just learned today may someday help me in the future. When I reread this essay and I see all the information Ive written down it honestly makes me think of how important it is to respect yourself, Ive noticed this when I talked about how important it is to be different. I undoubtelly enjoyed reading Harrison Bergeron, because it woken up my perspectives on how good individuality can be, and that it 's okey to be
Cognitive dissonance is experienced by every human being goes through at some point of their lives, through rationalizing when there is an uncomfortable feeling for doing something that goes against their beliefs. According to this theory, individuals are able to recognize when they are acting in ways that are opposite from their beliefs. He argued that it would be hard for an individual to ignore the behaviors that violates ones principles, which will cause feelings of discomfort.

In the very beginning of English 101, I was informed that homework will be daily and intense. Be prepared for class counted as participation grade, as well as speaking in class. I thought my papers needed to be up to the standards at the beginning of class because the syllabus set certain concerns by the way it was phrased. I was expected to summit my daily assignments on time and improve on my writing as the semester went by, and I was overwhelmed by such responsibility. 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.
One assignment that I found intriguing was when I had to write things that I carried to school and each sentence had to be a literary device. This was one task I enjoyed because it was time consuming, challenging, and also using my previous writing knowledge to create an entertaining writing piece. In the end, I was more confident with my writing because whenever I had an essay due, I would receive feedback about my improvements in my writing. Senior year was more writing than reading. During college application season, I had to write many essays and make my own résumé.
and that 's whats hard. I need a lot of help is math, because i don 't understand. Something that used to be really difficult for me was other subjects in math like fractions but now I know I could do better. I can get better if I just study, what I 'm going to do to study is take more notes .
My sentences still read very choppy although they are much better than when I started this class. This can be ironed out of my writing by spending more time proofreading my papers. The sentence fluency I think will come the more I write, even by my last paper I feel it has improved drastically compared to my first paper. I think I could have been even more successful in this class if I had spent more time out of class proofreading and using my time better while I was in class. I feel that I have grown more than I originally planned on because this class involved us more in the first quarter.
This mindset sometimes urges you to prove yourself over and over. If you have a fixed mindset you think you have a certain amount of intelligence, personality and moral character. This urges you to prove that you are actually as smart as you think. For example you are having a bad day and you come to a class that you really enjoy. Your professor hands you your exam and you got a C+.
Above all, homework allows the students to gain responsibility, time-management, perseverance, and self-esteem. “The act of completing homework has benefits in terms of developing good habits in students.” This shows that, students are gaining many skills from homework. This also shows that, homework isn’t a waste of time and students do benefit from homework. “Homework also teaches students how to problem solve, think independently, and build an understanding and interest for the issues in our society.”
In conclusion, after completing the chart, I was able to realize that change was completely possible. There are many things that restrain me from my success, but they are things that with some practice I can limit and become more successful. Also, when comparing my two lists of restraining forces and driving forces, I can see the true reason why I want to succeed and the driving forces, even though the list is smaller, is much more compelling to me over the restraining
Bridger Haffey Narrative for US101 Throughout the course of this class I have come to realize that involvement and participation is essential to my success in this course. Not only is participation a large amount of my grade, but it is also a means to understanding the material that we discuss in class. Personally, I learn best when I ask questions and get involved in finding connections between themes and ideas. This is not only true for discussion, but also for classes like calculus where it is very easy to fall behind unless I am fully engaged.
I still regret my decision to not try, because if I put in the effort, I could have became someone new. Someone better. Being on this team, this family, will make me feel good about myself, it will press on me to persevere and to carry on. It will push me, to test my knowledge, to really help me advance. Even though I may not make it, an attempt is worth it.

Discuss which model of abnormality you believe is most important and why. If you believe that more than one model is important include specific reasons for your choices. I feel like the cognitive model of abnormality is important because it helps a person to think differently about themselves or situation their going through. The term cognition means the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses.
