Even though there was a lot going on at home, I still was able to get all my work completed by the time it was due. If you are just starting out in high school and one of your parents died and things get tough don't let that distract you from going to school. If you ever experience what I went through you should work hard in school, don't get
Honestly looking back now i don’t really think some of the other kids enjoyed me too much because of this. When i got to fifth grade i made it into the gifted program. I felt as though i had achieved my goal in life. I showed an obvious lack of concern for my future about my future or what i even wanted to be when i grew up. I was to caught up with trying to fit in with the so called “cool kids.” In fact i became so involved in developing a social life that my grades began to drop.
I was so nervous and afraid of failing that I will stop my exam for a few minutes to just focus again. When I got my final report card I discovered that I passed each final exam and I was so thrilled. The next year in 11th grade, I worked hard from the start and achieved really high grades and knew that if I wanted something I had to work hard for
I was mortified to find out how naive I truly was as I entered my freshmen year of college this past August. I watched weekend after weekend become filled with parties and drunk Instagram posts. With each test, people began to care less and grades quickly plummeted from A’s to C’s and D’s. Knowing how hard I worked to attend my dream college, I would never consider throwing it all away. My weekends in high school were filled with homework, meets, working, and scholarship applications in any spare time.
I have made a choice to make a better life for myself and to make better decision and to take school more serious also for the past three years I have done everything I need to so I could be able to catch up in school they told me if I were to stay in public school, I would have to do another three years and I was in the tenth grade at the time, so I was very upset and I wanted to give up so many times but I kept going an also do my best in school I had plans and goals for myself and school was a big obstacle that I tried my hardest to overcome. So I made a choice to find a better way for me to graduate as soon as possible. Back then I did not take school seriously, it was all fun and games and barely showed up and when I did go to school, I was always getting into argument’s over anything and everything so I would not want to go to school, I did not want to get into an argument, I was tired of the drama so I would just decide that I’m not going to go to school. I was good at doing my classwork I just did not like the process I never really understood why we had to go to school for eight hours when I could do all the work in three or four hours that was my mind set I wanted to get out of school, but I was not doing
Although I was not expecting a good grade, I still wondered what I had done wrong. The paper had one mark on it that was it, but I was too shy to ask what I did wrong. The same thing happened again on the next essay we wrote weeks later. I was just about ready to give up on the class, not like I actually could quit it but I was not very motivated about it. After that essay I did ask
A lot of aspects in my life changed drastically when I started my first year of high school. I became more matured and dedicated in my education, which made me feel better with myself as I started to improve as a student. Teachers suddenly began to mention college and demand the requirement to know what career you want to make a living of, and reality instantaneously hit me hard. I realized that I had to upgrade my grades and start thinking about my future, something that I have been avoiding for a long time, so eventually, when my grades became higher than usual and the only thing left was to decide what major I was getting in my mind was completely blank. Since I was young I thought that I was convinced about what I wanted to do, but I became aware that what I wanted was a bit unrealistic and as I heard my friends talk about their future with such confidence l felt uncertain about mine.
Failing at these goals make me want to strive harder towards the latter. Knowing that I have failed makes me become more engaged and determined to accomplish these goals of making better grades this semester. On the contrary, I also know that there would be plenty of stepping stones with mountains to climb to get to these goals. So, analyzing all these mountains I would have to climb I can, see that there would be many hurdles to obtaining the success I strive for this semester. The obstacles that would prevent me from acquiring success this semester is poor time-management, lack of studying, and misguided priorities.
Over a long period of time, I didn’t realize how serious high school meant before heading to college. My older brother didn’t do well in high school and he was the only person to look up to at the time. While attending elementary learning the basics came to me gradually and as each year passed by I was more interested in why my older brother attended a different school at a certain age/grade. My first year in middle school as an experience as a whole wasn’t what my older brother described and I expected the same for high school. My older brother did graduate high school but didn’t take the measures to attend a university or community college.
Thinking in my head before the exam I was worried and did not feel prepared at all. After the test I was sure that I failed and I was disappointed in myself even though I knew I was not going to do good. When I received the test score back I was upset because I failed my first exam in college. In my mind I said to myself that I was going to try harder and do better in the next thing that we learned. That
