I was surprised at how much it affected me, especially because I was able to get through all 4 days. One big difference I realized was that I finished my homework earlier each night, and I had more time for hobbies and relaxing. The main reason for this is that I would spend an hour or more on Snapchat reading all of the different magazine and news stories, and that would push back the time I started on my homework. One pet peeve of mine is starting my homework when it is dark outside because it feels like I’m starting too late and won’t finish. When I was
I went into my teacher’s office hours to get more practice and spent additional time on the homework to ensure I understood the concepts completely. Even after I felt like I was doing better in the class I still continued with the added practice and eventually I started to get perfect and near perfect scores on my tests. When I first starting learning how to drive, I was terrified of driving and this made me reluctant to want to practice driving. Soon I realized that I would be less afraid of driving once I got better at driving and the only way to improve was to practice, so I starting driving anytime I went anywhere with my mom. I was able to get my driver’s license on one try and graduated driving school with a close to perfect score on my final test.
But, after what seemed like hours, I became mentally exhausted. The games got harder and I couldn’t think. I stopped caring. After the they said the test was over I knew I could have done better, but it was so long I just gave up. Walking back to the waiting room, I was upset at myself because I was afraid of disappointing my Mom with my poor performance.
SometImes I don 't even do It. so homework Is a thing I need I get better at. stop talking to neighbors always go distracted last year by talking to friends or just zone out. Planner never uses It last year now I need to use the planner for every single class. I am a caring person.
My success is mostly based from my family. They are the ones that make me strive to be better every single day, and that is probably why I like to talk and write about them a lot. The Writing Collection we did was a bunch of flash draft essays we wrote about events that have changed us or our view on life. Out of all of my flash drafts, the one that was by far the best and most meaningful was the essay I wrote about my family, called “Is Family Really Forever?”. It always amazed me how I could write so much about my family, and that’s when my realization of success with my family hit me.
I also used to disrespect my family, but now I respect my parents, and their wishes. I personally have become a better person because of FCCLA. I take my education seriously, because before I used to blow off my education. Through FCCLA I’ve gotten so much different opportunities, that I’d be lost if I wasn’t apart of FCCLA. Also FCCLA has brought me lifelong friendships, I’ve met other people from other states, and I still do keep in touch with them, it’s also an encouragement or something to look forward to if I do qualify for Nationals.
In all actuality, I didn’t know what was going on for the most part. I regret not seeking more help because I know my grade would have better and I would have gained much more knowledge that way. Don’t hesitate to ask for help because if you look to the right and left of you the person next to you will most likely struggling in something. You don’t want to be like me and not seek the
I may have not been the best student but I still tried to improve and I started working better at it. Eventually things resolved and my parents got back together but it was still pretty bad. At least by this point they were together I we all lived together. They still argued all of this time, but for me this was better than before. My road back continues onto now.
In one of the most memorable meetings, my mother couldn’t be there due to having to take so many days off of work already to care for me, so my dad attended. Most of the special education staff, teachers, and administrators were attempting to reduce my tutoring, change expectations for what I would achieve to things that were just not realistic, and I was having a “bad brain day” and was struggling to advocate for myself. My dad listened to the disagreements between those that understood and those that didn’t. When asked for his input he simply explained that even though he struggled to understand what I was experiencing and how I could appear to be “normal”, he trusted and believed that what I was saying was the truth and that only I knew what was truly going on in my brain. These few sentences not only brought almost everyone to tears, but also helped people understand that it was not their perception of where they thought I was that mattered, but rather what I was experiencing.
Attending classes on a daily basis when I first attended college wasn’t all too well. I had personal problems going on that I was worried about, not knowing that my school work was getting a overload on me. Walking into MS. Bailey’s class hearing that I had an essay due within a week. Me being lazy, and dragging around having other things on my mind, I decided to do my paper at the last minute. I couldn’t think of anything good to write being that I wanted the best grade possible.
My education back then was very rocky as well as unfocused. However, now at Twenty Eight my life is very different. Now I’m more focused to succeed in my education. Also that had made me a more responsible person, because back in my earlier twenties, I was not a reliable person. I really didn’t care about my responsibilities.
