I feel as though I have changed a lot throughout my high school career so far. I have made new friends, drifted away from others, modified the career path I want to go on, and most importantly I have become closer to myself and have started to do things I feel are best for me. So much has changed in just half of my career at this school and I am very excited to see where the next two years take me. I can’t even imagine where else I will go in life but I will try my best to make it great. I have many amazing people in my life that push me to do what they know I can and want me to do what makes me happy.
Why I Write and What I Have Learned so far? “I write because I love writing. I think I became a writer in order to explore my ideas and responses to the world around me, which I often found it difficult to share with others.” Alex Miller. Writing is a complex feeling, thoughts, or experience that describes our different feelings about many events or the thought or experience that could help others to solve their problem. My desire and passion for writing was influenced by authors of old such as George Orwell and Alexie Sherman who used techniques such as ethos in their writings.
Over the course of the next few months, I saw improvement and lifted more than I had the week before. This goes on to show that improvements do not simply result from a single day’s work; rather, it is a product of dedication and hard work over long periods of time. Similarly, having this same mentality will be key in making it through four years of optometry school. As a aspiring optometrist, I expect there will be times when I will be overwhelmed and stressed out. There will be times when I put in work but still fail.
These changes made the essay make more sense and gave it better overall readability. One sentence that I changed in my opening paragraph was, “With my mind anxiously looking forward to the adventures to come in my military career, these stories of travel and adventure kept me going and wanting more.” As I read this now I see how it is very vague, and by elaborating on this one sentence it sets the tone of the rest of the paper and it allows the readers to understand the details of my relationship with literacy. The penultimate paragraph in my Literacy Narrative was meant to try and explain my relationship with literacy and how others may be able to use this same idea to have hope and to prepare themselves for situations they may encounter in the future. Again, I was very vague while trying to explain this to the readers. The changes I made were to not leave questions unanswered but to directly state the benefits that I personally gained from reading these books and how others may benefit from this type of reading as
My previous professor was big on self-reflection. So shortly after I typed this essay I had to reflect on what I had done. Each time I have analyzed this paper I have found something new that I should have seen before, and I have learned how to improve from that point. I really don’t like now how passionate I was in my paper. It is hard when you really support something to take a step back and convey your argument clearly.
I realized that I was paying to be here, and that if I was paying to do something I was going to do it well. I can now proudly say that my work ethic is something I can boast about. I no longer procrastinate like I did in high school. My grades are much higher than high school with consistent A’s. I even managed to get an A in algebra which was my hardest class in high school.
Without the knowledge of self there is no knowledge of God (Cron & Stabile, 2016). When I began reading the book, this quote had stood out to me, it highlights what knowing about yourself is all about. Before beginning this assignment or even opening the book, I had briefly heard about the Enneagram—it was another personality quest of what one is. Personally, I love knowing about personalities and just trying to know who I am, and wanting to know why I do the things that I do. When I started reading the first chapter, I was enamored.
They will still forget a few things, but it is not nearly as much as their counterparts who have a three month break. Less time will have to be spent reviewing lost material, and it can be spent on learning new material. There are naturally some internal changes within the school if it adopts this idea. Academic performance might increase from the change. However, it is not guaranteed.
Since my injury, I have been able to realize more about myself than I had ever imagined. While it was awfully tough watching my former teammates succeed without me, I will always be thankful for having the opportunity to find new passions and interests that have helped me substantially grow into the person I am today. What I gained most from my entire experience was learning new ideas and perspectives about the world and myself. Since sports are not as huge of a priority in my life anymore, I have had time to involve myself in my academics and various clubs. I would consider myself a very passionate person about the environment, equality, and peace.
In the years since I entered school, to the moment that my cap left my hand, I had grown into an entirely new version of myself. The freedom of college in combination with the guidance of so many teachers had led me to turn every negative aspect of myself into something new. With the pride I had gained in being part of something bigger, I became diligent and wholly interested in my studies. I had met so many interesting people who helped me break from my shell, and in doing so I had met some of the greatest friends I have ever had. However, in the scale of my life, these events are of little importance to me in everyday life.
Especially within Little Falls High School the tools that faculty, and even other students ensure provide an environment to which anyone can thrive. Throughout my years I have achieved multiple academic awards and accolades. To get to to a point in my education where I was able to receive such great awards took serious dedication not only on my part but all the teachers as well. Learning new material in various topics does not come easy to me. I started off certain classes like geometry or spanish with no clue what I was doing and even a few bad grades in the beginning.
The job description had me nodding my head! I have always enjoyed reading, writing, proofing, and editing. Being a perfectionist, having things done correctly has always been important to me. I do agonize over things until they 're just right, when most people would say it 's good enough. I would love a career where being 'too picky ' is a good thing!
