When 6th grade came, I transferred into a Baltimore City Public School since I really wasn’t getting the education I needed at the private school. It was still rough not fitting it. I thought that becoming like the other kids would make me happy, but I was learning new things everyday and I realized in high school that being the outcast is better than being like everyone else. The journey I dealt with in high school was very emotionally tough and life changing. I learned that I was placed on this earth to discover my own path, and I wouldn’t be happy if I live someone else’s life.
During my freshman year in high school, there were so many things different than middle school. At first, I was excited, but then that excitement shifted to dread. This dread came from the pressures of high school. I was scared that if I did poorly in school, my performance would affect the college I go to and the job I will get. The one thing that helped me keep focus the most was naps.
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.
When I first started Unity high school I was nervous high school was going to be rough and hard to make friends but I 've been enjoying high school so far in freshman year. The biggest fear for me in high school was that there were going to be little bit of people to hang out with. This freshman year I have not joined any clubs but sophomore year I would consider joining clubs. This freshman year I don 't think I 've changed much from middle school but I have learned many things this year. When I had my first day at Unity High School I had a feeling that It was going to be rough for me and it would be hard to learn things but so far it 's been going well nothing has really changed from eighth grade.
It’s almost the end of my sophomore year and I know Ii didn't do well this school year. I went through a lot but I’m proud of myself for another school year almost done. This year I’ve realize that Ii need to try more and focus better. Although it wasn't my best school year I did achieve some growths and strengths. At the beginning of the year I was disappointed in myself for retaking math.
Laurie 's boyfriend David and her friend Amy accuse her of being responsible for much of the competitiveness at school. Laurie doesn 't really address the issue in the book, but she might have to after The Wave. At the top of the school success ladder socially, academically, and extra curricular Laurie has some power to make things better for the other students. Since she 's creative, driven and concerned with doing the right thing, thinks Laurie will be able to do
In the semester prior I had some challenges in my english class. The challenges weren’t really bad, but the challenges were affecting my grade. For example, I would procrastinate on doing the notes for “To kill a Mockingbird”, over the christmas break. Also, I found it harder to do the notes by myself than it was with a partner. For that reason i believe I wasn’t able to complete the notes for “To Kill A Mockingbird.” Even though there were some challenges I still passed the semester final on “To Kill A Mockingbird,” with a solid B. I turned in all my work and had no missing assignments.
On most essay topics there are specific requirements that must be followed which can then limit the student’s ability to expressively write and cause them to feel less confident since their writing is restricted. Literacy narratives, however, allows the student to write freely and express themselves more due to the fact there is incorrect answer because afterall it is the writer’s own personal experience. In my particular literacy narrative I spoke how disappointed I was to spell “hoax” as “hoaks” in my elementary school’s annual spelling bee even though I still placed fourth overall. Although that tiny detail is not greatly needed, I put that in my essay anyway because I felt like that was something important to share. When it comes to stricter
Managing your time can be very difficult and often stressful. Especially when transitioning from high school to college since most of us are starting our first part time job. In college, students are struggling to balance school, studying, a part-time job, family, and friends. There will be times where you want to hold off studying and go hang out and party with your friends but you should remember that your academic work should always come first when prioritizing your time. Friends and family will understand that your focus as of now is your education.
School, for me, is probably where it all began because I was constantly forgetting to do homework as a kid, which of course led to me getting in trouble and getting bad grades, which I really didn’t want.. Getting in trouble over something that I could so easily have done made me feel the need to work twice as hard to remember to finish and turn in all of my homework on time. I’m usually also pretty good at school work, but by losing and/or never turning it in I could’ve run the risk of being held back because it may have seemed like I wasn’t understanding the classes when I actually was. That brings up another reason I need to become more organized, my mom would have been extremely mad if I’d been held back because I wasn’t turning in my homework, and that was probably much scarier to me at the time then actually being held back. The second group that helped influence this trait is very directly related to the influence that my school had on me, my peers. Most of my close friends I had all through school were very good right away at getting their work turned in, after I finally realized that it made me want to sort of be like them in sort of a competitive way where I wanted to be able to keep up with them academically.
