I am someone who writes about the things they are thankful for and love in their phone at night, someone who likes to compliment people and help them out or tell them when I am grateful for them on random occasions, and I am someone who normally tries to see the awe and the good in the world. Learning about this class and about gratitude was something that made me realize a lot about myself rather than a ton of new ideas. But, like the world likes to do, I found myself in a rough spot about halfway through the class. Suddenly my grades were dropping and I wasn’t able to keep up even though I had coined myself as a good student which was a struggle for my identity and my scores. I know that all these articles and experiences have been in a positive light for gratitude, but nothing is going to instantly change your life.
In the past, believing in myself is usually the hardest part. My final goal in high school is to graduate. This might be the goal of most high school students, but for me it is more than just a diploma. Graduating is starting my life on my own and being more independent that I have ever before. My goals for college are
While a lot of people can fit both into their schedules, most people find it hard to do so. When I was younger, I was always told that school would solve all of my problems, so from the moment I started preschool to the moment that I graduated high school, I made sure that I put my all into everything that I did. I was a 3.0 student when I graduated with a 22 ACT score. Not my best work, but I was still proud of myself. It was those accomplishments that got me scholarship money and acceptance into some pretty good schools across the country.
The goals that I have made for myself throughout the rest of the semester are to utilize my time better as well as to study for my tests and taking care of my priorities first hand. Throughout the past, it was common for me to blow off anything that was a priority or seen as an inconvenience to myself. However, I quickly learned that this is not how the ‘real world’ works and is completely unacceptable. The most beneficial component of PADR for me is the responsibility the course forces you to learn as well as
I had always wondered how it must feel to have friends that care so much, they would drop everything just to come and help you. However, after months of searching my three best friends showed me what true friendship was. One of the most important male figures in my life taught me that what is yours will find you and that life gets a lot more beautiful when you start living for yourself. This really helped to shape me into the person that I am today because I no longer seek approval from anyone but myself. That piece of advice is what made the last two years of my high school career nothing short of
I felt like I was never good enough for them. I had always thought no matter how much hard work I was putting in, it would never be appreciated. Even when I got straight A's on my report card. remember being so excited to bring it home and share with everyone all the endurance was worth it. They looked at it and said "oh well that 95 would be better" but I thought to myself how it could be better I did my best.
I was satisfied because I knew that my hard work in school had finally paid. Now that i have the opportunity or the possibility to get in, I am going to cease it and use it to my advantage. What I am merely saying is that I am the best option you have. This whole essay, in fact, is to prove why I am the best option. In this essay I will be reflecting on my character, scholarship,what help I can be to you and reflecting on my leadership experience this past years.
When I was a young child I believed that going to college was going to be the best thing that ever happened to me. I used to watch movies, and TV shows about college and I wanted to be like those students. Living on my own, going to parties, and having a multitude of friends was on my bucket list for college when I was in middle school. The first day of college is shown to be the best day of a student’s life; yet, my first day of college was filled with tears, stress, and regret. The night before I left for college my family helped me pack so I can start my new life on campus.
Transitioning from taking ballet from last semester to this has not changed my perspective on ballet much because I had a general idea of the goals I wanted to focus on. Reflecting on ballet from the fall, I noticed some habits that I am working on in this class. From the first day of class this semester, I did not know what to expect with the simplistic style and exercises to be performed at the barre. Over the last year of study, I have been able to grow as a dancer and also to plan goals before this semester started. My views on ballet have not changed much because I knew what I wanted to work on, aiming towards and trying to find a goal that I can relate to for each exercise.
Introduction The happiest time in my life was when I started to think that I have to do something that makes me feel proud of myself, and trying to do something I’ve never done before or even didn’t think about it. I always wanted to write a book but it was just a dream and an impossible thing to do because I’m a full time employee and a student at the same time so it’s hard for me to find a free time to set up what is in my mind. One day I read a quote that encouraged me and let me decide to move on no matter what and only then I deleted the impossible word from my mind. The quote was “We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.” And only then my book journey had started. Create the book idea I was confused about the book idea and I didn’t know what to write about and what type of books should it be.
