Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
My journey consisted of many good and bad times, and throughout the years I discovered my strengths and weaknesses. I made new friends, took on different tests, accomplished many things. My first year was my most difficult, being new to the school, but as the years went by, school became a more fun experience for me. Knowing that the 4 years of high school was a journey for me, I was able to brace myself for the difficult times to come and the rewards I was going to receive. At the end of the journey, I had gained a lot from these 4 years, but it also prepared me for my next journey, my journey through university.
The year and a half I spent after high school wondering what I should do with my life was a pretty low point in my life. I was confused and most of the time thought poorly of myself. College has helped re-invigorate me and helped me see my self-worth again. Going to class and seeing myself succeed made me feel better than I had in quite a while. Then finding a career that I am excited about has helped me be eager for what the future holds.
When I look back on the memories I 've made the friends that I now have the struggles I 've been through and the goals I did all most likely did not I realize that going it all went by in a Flash I know I 'm going to miss SMS I cannot begin to explain how much I have come to love this place the positive vibes and the smiles that welcome you into every day although it wasn 't always easy and there were some bad moments I 'm going to miss it here but I am happy to be to be moving up to high school I hope that you enjoy have enjoyed this year as much as I did what I will almost remember my first year SMS from the drama to crying on the last day I 'll only be able to remember the best moments one of my favorite moments was the winter carnival my
Since I was a little girl I have always been told to be on top of my studies and to go do what I love most. However, with college I am able to take on and obtain new knowledge to further my studies and do what I love most. I see college as another stepping stone into a great life and future. Being able to attend college is a blessing, this will help me understand and see the different perspective of the world around me.
So I worked my butt off in 7th and 8th grade, my results put me in Academy at Palumbo. In my eyes this is the path I wanted to be on, Palumbo is the place for me to start my future. Me working hard got me into one of the best schools in Philly because of the good grades that I got. This shaped my present life because it showed me that as long as you work hard and stay concentrated you can get whatever you set your mind to. All of this relates to Krik Krak because in the story, the past affects the present and future.
This ties into my personal history because according to philosopher George Santayana, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.” Now that I know what happens when I do not put in work and what happens when I put in work, I know better now and will always keep it in the back of my mind that even when the going gets tough, I have already had my one mistake and it only gets better from here onward. Also, this gives the admission committee something to always hold me to because knowing a person’s personal history is an indicator for future behavior and
I knew that your performance in high school helps with your college, but that’s about it. I still had a lot to learn before I can decide on a college Some things I hoped to learn throughout this project is how I can get into a college with minimum student loan, what colleges I’m interested in, what colleges are looking for, is studying abroad better than staying in the states, and what classes I should take in college. The
When you are in school, you are thinking on what to do in college, and what classes to take. One reason that college education that will you help learn, so you will get you a job. In now days jobs requires a degree and training for the job you want. College gives you on the job training that wills you the training for how to work in the job. The payoff will be much better than without a college education.
My grades and behavior were the main reasons I was on the border of not graduating. I was so focused on others that I never realized I let myself go. Graduating eighth grade helped prove to myself that I was not a failure and every step I took was only closer to being successful. Graduation year came faster than ever, I started to lose my outstanding grades and started to feel satisfied with low percentages as long as I was passing. It was my last year and all I wanted to do was have fun.
For me learning this lesson early in life will help me through my years in college and I am grateful for that. I think that when Robert Frost says “we come to college to get over out little mindedness” he means that we come to see the real reason why were here in the first
The four long year I had a lot of ups and down during this years. There were always amazing teachers. That were very helpful. There was so much to do in the middle school. Couple of my most memorable and amazing time at the middle school are when I made my best friends, made the softball team and want to gateway.
Eighth grade has been an unexpected but fantastic year. I expected it to be like my seventh grade year, long, boring, easy work, and only a couple of my friends are in my classes. Boy, I was wrong. Eighth grade has been a completely different adventure. The classrooms smell like people trying to hard to smell good, sometimes it gives me a major headache!
I’m not very good at writing. This paper that you're reading right now was a struggle for me to think of it. If I really try and work and keep brainstorming I can write a great paper, but it takes me forever. I’m not a writer. I hate writing.
