Only you can choose which way your life should turn so choose it wisely. Not everyone is lucky to have chosen the right path for themselves thus there are many college drop outs each year, academically they couldn’t cope with the heavy loads of subjects, its mainly because they didn’t seek help from the counselors when they should have in the beginning of their college first year, nowadays the colleges have started more activities along with studies, one should always take active part in college sports and other activities for recreation in between their studies. The first year college days will slowly turn to be more lively and welcoming, you will wake up each day to find a new thing to do, you will start deciding about what you actually want to be in future. You will find your self to be more focused about your future prospects, you might be attracted towards a particular subject and put more effort to get a degree on that. College life is all about learning about your self, it’s the time when you will decide what you really want to be in
Based on the class discussions most of the students agreed that senior year is just as important as the other grade levels, however, some students said homework wasn’t important. Senior year, for most students, is the year they look forward to the most because they get more opportunities. Coming from Walter Kirn, senior year is, “...an adolescent Mardi Gras.” In that case, if high schools were to get rid of senior year, teachers would still have to teach the required curriculum that would of been taught senior year. Therefore, that information would have to be taught to the students in the three years of high school. Students wouldn’t be able to fail any classes, because the teachers would have to rush through sections or chapters in order to have to teach all of the curriculum for the year.
My father 's efforts to help us feel more comfortable and at home continued. With the new house came our first year in an American school. My brother and I were eager to attend school, not knowing how many obstacles we would have to overcome. The first two years of attending an American school were the most difficult for us. Though, we made friends those same friends made an entertainment of our inability
In the past 19 years of my life, I have never had to fix anything major by myself that came across my way without the help of my parents. My parents have always worked their hearts out in order for my brother and I to come to the United States in order for us to have a better life than the one we had in Iraq. I did come over hurdles in life, but I was only able to cross them because of my parents’ support. I was dependent on them, but all that changed once I started attending college. I was stranded in this new town without any strings that tied me to people.
My freshman year in college has been a little challenging for me because I don’t know how to manage my time. I have always missed something, if it not a homework it’s a paper due date.However, it is not the first time, manage time has been really challenging for me since I was in elementary school because I’ve never pay intention to it.i always says i will get it done but i never got them done. nevertheless, I realize that without manage time will make it more difficult for me to succeed. What I did was I bought a calendar, write down when my paper due, my homework, my speech, and I even write the time I have to study every day. After weeks I realize that I’m doing so much better, making progress,getting good grades, more organized, and I feel good because I see that I’m doing it right and I know that I’m in a way of
Growing up I may have never had the newest or fanciest possessions but I also never knew the fear of not having enough to eat or not having a safe place to live. When my parents did have financial issues, me and my sister were sheltered from them. The families we knew were also all middle class two parent families. To this day I still have never truly been exposed to what being lower class is like. Coming from a middle class family it was always assumed that I would continue my education in college.
The relationship began to get better over time which help tremendously because we started to talk more and I started to reach out and ask for help. Some people go through things in life but that does not define who you are or will be. My name is Ayleah Weaver and I used to not care about school or anything for that matter, I failed two classes which I am now making up and I got better with school over time and I am now an honor roll student, my senior year has been my best year. In high school you have some challenging moments but it is your job to get through
What!?! At this time of my life, going back to school was not exactly at the top of my “To Do” list. My husband, Don, always said I could go farther with my career, I’m smarter than I give myself credit for, and I was selling myself short. He was the stand-out, initial motivator for me. Initially, I thought he was being nice and complimenting because he felt he had to.
It was not shocking news as I expected it to be in that range. However later on I wondered how my parents will manage with ease to start paying the same fees every semester but doubled. Yousef, my brother, studies at A.U.K is 23 years old now studies computer engineering. The age gap between us is 4 years, which means he should have graduated already. Instead he had his probation in 2015 which got him off track.
I tried as much as I could to help my mom mainly with my little sister but we all knew that we won’t be able to live this life forever. That was a time when I was starting my high school and thinking about my future life in college. I didn’t want to stay in my town, since I knew that big city is the only option to get a good education and to help my parents. At that time I worked as hard as I could to have the best grades and a chance to move out. After a while it turned out that my dreams and plans for the future were not that impossible.
