When school ended in June of 2015 I wanted to continue on to my senior with the rest of my classmates. I wanted to move on like nothing had happened but I knew deep in my heart that I was not prepared for my senior year. For a good time after the decision to repeat my junior year, I looked at it as a failure. I hold myself to high standards and I could I not believe that I would have this “blemish” on my record. I was angry at myself for even being depressed in the first place and I felt like I had failed the basic requirements of being a human being.
The year and a half I spent after high school wondering what I should do with my life was a pretty low point in my life. I was confused and most of the time thought poorly of myself. College has helped re-invigorate me and helped me see my self-worth again. Going to class and seeing myself succeed made me feel better than I had in quite a while. Then finding a career that I am excited about has helped me be eager for what the future holds.
He was told by one of he good friends “If you don’t try now you wont make it into college.” After that he decided to try his hardest and try to make it into college. He even dumped his high school girlfriend so he could spend more time studying and doing school work. By doing this it forced him to learn to focus. He learned ways to help him overcome his dyslexia. It all payed off at the end of high school he just barely made it into college.
In the first semester of 9th grade I had a 1.4 GPA and managed to raise it to a 3.57 GPA and I am really proud of myself for that. Attendance In my years in high school I miss a day of school very rarely. I haven 't received any awards in my years for perfect attendance but I was really close too it. I feel like if I miss school I would miss really important information and fall behind so I don 't like missing school that often. Having a good attendance is something I take pride in and will help me in the future with my job.
Why I chose this subject I chose to write about Jin Shin Jyutsu as a successful treatment because it saved my life eight years ago and I am convinced it works. After three years in college majoring in psychology I realized it was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life and I decided to drop out. I went through an existential crisis at the age of nineteen, I was very depressed and wanted to be out of contact with the outside world. From being extremely social and very self-assured I suddenly wanted nothing to do with people during that time, I slept all day and looked unsure and scared of everything. It seemed as if months flew by until I felt better, the truth is that only two months had passed.
I believe the efforts we do not make in prior life can be mistakes or setbacks for our future goals. At the time, we may lack knowledge which could help us reach goals that we did not know we wanted in prior years. For me, this goal was to be a member of the Incarnate Word High School National Honor Society. I met all but one of the requirements which was to maintain an average of 94 or higher. As a freshman, I thought this was out of reach for me and pointless to work toward so I decided to put NHS out of my sight.
For the next two semesters, I worked hard and brought my GPA above a 3.0 which helped me regain my scholarship. This ties into my personal history because according to philosopher George Santayana, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.” Now that I know what happens when I do not put in work and what happens when I put in work, I know better now and will always keep it in the back of my mind that even when the going gets tough, I have already had my one mistake and it only gets better from here onward. Also, this gives the admission committee something to always hold me to because knowing a person’s personal history is an indicator for future behavior and
Also, our school forced us to take the ACT once and they paid for it. My school even canceled classes in order for every student to take the ACT. Taking the SAT would mean driving to North Little rock due to the lack of SAT testing centers in Little Rock. I took the ACT twice after the required ACT test. I was not aware that we had a required ACT, so I did not prepare ahead of time.
The members played a big part in this personal growth of mine, as well. I was shocked when random community members would come up to me to congratulate me on a win or ask how the teams are looking. It was important for me to be assured that they care about the things I was doing. These small conversations felt like an invitation for me to start and hold meaningful conversations with adults. Some of the greatest lessons that I have taken from high school are lessons that have nothing to do with the curriculum.
Not only that, I enjoy managing to do certain task and duties on my own, because I enjoy the after feeling of success and the opportunity to help others after. Taking school for granted will never cross my mind, I will continue to make it the centerpiece of my life, until I now I have reached the peak of my career. If I believe that is not enough, I will continue to be ambitious about education and will not settle until I am content with my place in life. Throughout the help of scholarships I know I will be the successful and dedicated student in school to complete my degrees and start my
