In the mist of one of my games I was unknowingly struck with a concussion but continued to play the game. Two months had gone by before I was able to fully return to school. Overwhelmed with all the material I had missed, I simply struggled in returning. Test, quizzes, and homework from various classes began to conquer my confidence in a successful year. I soon accepted the false thoughts that consumed my determination, I had given up on the year not even half way through it.
This quote reminds me of when I struggle in math I always gotten a bad grade in quiz . I just really wanted to give up and at one point I just I was not even trying. So I decided enough is enough I have to start getting better grades. I retake all of my quizzes and got a better grade.
I managed to grasp the basic concepts of learning in grammar school only to succumb to the same people and pressures in high school. I achieved honor roll status in my freshman year of high school. Regardless, I fell off track puberty, peer pressure, and hardheadedness were my worst enemy. I conclude, moving out of my first foster home where I stayed for 13 years would satisfy my curiosities and mysteries of the street.
I knew it was only going to get worse as the years went on so i practiced english like crazy. I would watch tv and listen to music all the time to really pick up how the said some words. my speech therapy teacher said she saw a lot of improvement in me over the summer. By the end of eighth grade i spoke english perfectly. High school will be different, and it was no one made fun of me or made me feel like i did not belong in america.
For a long while, during my time in middle school and the start of high school, the thought of doing really well in school never dawned on me. I’m the kind of person that always think about life in the near future, never extending far enough to think about what I really want to do and where I want to go. My grades had always been average, never dropping low enough to hurt my future but also never rising high enough to push me far, until I reached tenth grade. My laziness got to me and I just didn’t care anymore. My GPA dropped so low, seeing it can make anyone gasp.
You don’t want to stay in high school longer than your supposed too. I thought myself thought high school was like middle school, I slacked off and didn 't study, but there were consequences. I failed a class and now I have to retake it next year. I know now that I will study and work hard for every class. High School is different so you better be ready for
I dedicated myself to passing geometry in order to be accepted at CSU Channel Islands. Unfortunately, my admission was rescinded because I did not meet the geometry requirement because I went through a lot of stress meanwhile geometry being a challenging subject for me was not helping the situation. I was close to meeting the requirement, but I was not able to improve enough. As I previously mentioned, I went through a lot of stress during my senior year because I was going through personal issues.
Everything is not always what it seems. I was always the one who kept everything to herself - I could be screaming on the inside, but completely silent on the outside. In my situation, the third time was the charm. The start of high school was the start of negativity, not only mentally, but neurologically. Insecurities, seizures, and anxiety overwhelmed me.
I 've never struggled with school until this year. It seems like the homework kept piling as time kept slipping. All the years before I was a straight A student. This year I 've toppled from straight A’s, to high B’s, and even managed to get a C. I don 't know if it was just the letter C or the thought of having to get it up, but I was stressed. Anxiety was taking my focus away
I didn 't let myself be defined by test scores and I surrendered all the broken pieces in my life to Jesus. It was (not THAT easy but still) easier to brush off the 56% on a physics midterm because I knew who I was in Christ and that I am still loved and valued regardless of how bad I do on exams (but not going to lie, I almost cried during and after the test). After my life started looking and feeling different, I started doing better in school for some reason. My grades were not so pretty until about week 6 and God just pulled me through.
Being a candidate for the National Honor Society is a tremendous honor for me. Since I began high school, it has been a goal of mine to be a part of this amazing organization. Being involved in my school and community has always been important to me, and any chance I get to further my involvement is great. I believe that NHS is the perfect opportunity for me to serve others and help better our community. I understand that a member of NHS shows qualities of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Throughout my high school career have been, running track and field freshman through senior year finishing 1st in my 4X200m relay at the regional competition, earning awards, and JV / Varsity letters. During the track season I balanced practice for two hours or meets for 5 hours, along with a job and school. At each meet I participated in 4 events including the 100m dash, 200m dash, 4x100m relay, and the 4x200m relay. During my years of high school I have earned several On-time performance awards along with several attendance awards. At the end of my junior year I was awarded with most improved in my academics which is something I strived very hard for to earn.
