Reflective writing: I’ve always been the one who has astounding ideas and critical thinking, I’ve also wanted to convince people to support me, but I’ve never tried to listen to anyone, instead I generally worked by myself and kept my plans for me. Now in my new school, working in groups and sharing ideas is one of the most important things because it shows you are social, and able to deal with people. My first experience in a band was in the beginning of the year. It was in biology where the teacher divided us to teams of 5, also she gave us instructions. I have now realized that I should start adapting with this new way of working which imposed me to change my work system.
The DREAM Team brings a community of undocumented students together. By showing other them that they were not alone, other DREAMers were able to come out about his/her status. I had never being part of a club before, and after attending their meetings I regretted not knowing about the DREAM Team before. Being able to sympathize with one another made me have a feeling of belonging. I also saw them working closely with one another to gain support and raise awareness on immigrant reforms that affect thousands of undocumented students.
A quantity of high school athletes have succeeded and a majority of them have not. The issue concerning the NCAA athletes is that they are not being paid to play in these tournaments and games. They are not being paid to win, and to move on to play numerous other teams. With countless new players, the NCAA would have to pay the athletes different amounts of money depending on how long the athletes were on the teams.
My parents classify our family as somewhere between working and middle class. They make enough to own a house, put food on the table, put clothes on our backs, even take vacations every once in a while. However, my parents and I combined do not make enough to pay for my education. In fact, I am the first person in my entire family to go to a four-year institution. The main reason behind that is lack of money.
Fortunately, most of my high school friends decided to go abroad so I had that chance to have some recommendations which
Tuesday and wednesday went by and thursday and friday were just scrimmage days. After school thursday we stretched and got warmed up then got straight to business we picked teams and started playing I didn 't think the teams were that fair but I didn 't really care I just had to play my game I started down with the freshman and sophomore like every other freshman but i wasn 't regular like them after a few games past the coaches seen that a had some talent and that I should be moved up with the jv and the varsity players so the coach plaste me in the other gym with the more advanced players and put me on a team as soon as i started playing with the older guys I noticed an immediate change in paste I started breathing harder my heart rate shot up and they were just way bigger than me but I had to make it work somehow I knew I wasn 't the best one out there but I hustled a lot and gave it my all and hoped that 's what coach was looking for.
I was putting in the work at practice, getting lots of reps in at point guard, and really getting to know the sets better. Then Gavin got hurt and a part of me wad down because he was getting on a roll and helping the team win but the competitive side of me was thinking that now is my chance to make my mark and to get some varsity minutes. We played Maquoketa and I didn’t get in the game. Little down about that and the fact that we lost to Maquoketa who we beat last time by more than 25 points, but it was there freshman who punched us in the stomach when he mad a last second shot to beat us by one. Gavin was back the next day at practice and my spirit was dead.
Assignment #5: Mindset Survey Reflection It is not so hard to observe others’ actions and pinpoint what mindset traits they might have, but it is difficult to think of my own mindset traits, especially fixed mindset versus growth mindset. Making a list of my mindset traits is not an easy task. When I made my initial list, many of the traits ended up being those of others that I have observed. I had to really think about my actions and how others interpret them.
Initially, I felt that team work is not an easy job, because of the diversity among all our group members. Due to some past experiences, I used to rarely rely on people with the delivery of task. So I was uncertain about our team and task. So primarily, we tried to understand each other by sharing information about our backgrounds, interests, and experience. During our first meeting, we allocated a leader who always involved us in determining the team roles and responsibilities and guided us to work together to achieve the highest outcome as a team.
Everything happened so fast. I had only worked for SFC Joe Smith for a little over three months. The first incident had occurred when I was updating the computers prior to the opening of the facility to students. SFC Joe Smith had given me a warning that he only wanted me to update the computers at the end of the duty day. The problem with that was I did not know how long it would take to update the computers and I had to pick up my daughter before the daycare closed at 5:30 P.M. I attempted to update the computers when they took the students out to conduct an exercise.
Leadership is needed everywhere, and only a select few can be a leader. As a seventh grader, I am so confused with life, why social media is important, and WHY DO PEOPLE (Particularly followers) CARE SO MUCH ABOUT THE NEW TRENDS. Here though, the students here also are wondering about that, but are too afraid to admit it. I can connect to them in some way or another, whether it’s a good connection or bad connection, I get what they think.
