I going to start this school year off right! I’m going to get a lot done this year and take my time, so that I can take in all the knowledge from my courses and I can move onto college courses. The first step I’m going to take is be on time to every scheduled appointment so that I don’t fall behind and I can get extra help if I need it. The next thing I’m going to do to be successful this year is to more work than expected not the bare minimum. Last I’m going to study hard for every expected test that I know I’m going to have to take.
Proofreading my papers has always been a weak spot for my writing. I was always one for just hurrying through the essay and then turning it in, thinking I was too good to make those small errors. When I got those papers back I started to realize I was not the young Hemmingway I thought I was, so I started proofreading my work. After I started doing this, my grades slowly got better but they still were not satisfactory to me.
Time management has been one of the most substantial hurdles of my scholastic and professional career. Many of us waste our time on things that are neither important nor necessary, instead of using that time for something of that is meaningful. To capitalize on the use of time management strategies and reach my Doctoral Business Administration (DBA) program goals. I will execute two specific time management strategies, for example, accessing and planning a weekly schedule while adjusting my daily schedule. Time management will help me maximize the use of my time and reach my ultimate DBA goals of completing each assignment.
At the age of fourteen, I was accepted into an Early College High School that has allowed me to take dual credit courses since my freshman year of high school. By the time I graduate high school, I will already have my college associate degree that I will have earned through my hard work and dedication. Even though I went through a lot at such a young age, it has shaped me in every possible way. I was exposed to a whole different language and culture, but I was able to succeed through my strong desire of success and dedication. I am thankful for every challenge that I had to go through because if it was not for them, I would not be the person I am
While TEAM is meant to be a form of transition from the high school to university setting, I still struggled with the rigor of the courses, which honestly, walking into the first time, I underestimated. But I adapted and learned from those around me- I asked for advice from more experienced students, I talked to academic counselors, I spoke to professors, trying to get a grasp of what it was that I needed to do to be successful. My first semester was a semester of trial and error; I learned a lot, despite my resulting grades saying otherwise. I learned what it took to be successful, that I couldn 't just go through the motions. I learned one of the most important lessons of my college career thus far, and it is this- in order to be successful here (at Texas A&M), you must immerse yourself in every lesson, every lecture, every class.
With completing the third semester in practicum placement, I was able to benefit from a variety of new things from the class. The placement gave me the opportunity to refresh my memory and skills in what I have learnt two semesters ago. My biggest huddle for this semester was my time management. I am a procrastinator, so completing assignments on time was and still is a challenge for me. I have not come to a full solution to this problem yet, but I did make changes in my life as to how I can manage time management.
With a four-day school week helping schools and students, the only other people to help is the parents. The four-day school week would lead to lengthened school days, giving the regular-hour, eight to five, working parents the ability to cancel out after school care. One parent even said it herself “‘I approve of the four-day week’” (Johnston). “Sixty-seven percent of parents stated that their child liked the new schedule, 60 percent of parents thought their child was doing well, and 82 percent of students stated that they liked the calendar’” (Yarbrough and
I also did horrible in the tests, but I was able to push through that and I managed to pass the class with a B. My weakness this year was probably not having enough sleep. I get cranky when I don’t get enough sleep, and I realized I can’t focus when I’m in class. My strength this year was probably becoming more organized and setting a specific schedule for myself everyday. Since I have to work, I need to make specific time for my homework.
From the start of the semester, I have found myself not meeting standards because of my difficulty being able to explain myself correctly. In one of the first formatives we were assessed on, The JFK Inaugural Speech, my use of quotations were effective, but the sentences that followed were opposite of that. While analyzing the comments made by you stating that the explanation needs to be more “specific” and “have a greater focus on analysis,” I made it my task to improve on what was keeping me from earning a better grade. When looking at my Destination Essay, the focus seems like I’m “playing with multiple ideas,” but I don’t necessarily have one perfect idea. By missing out on fixing these mistakes and seeking help from you, I continued to demonstrate this lack of explanation in multiple other essays and formatives.
According to the Web site collegeresults.org, only 23.6 % of the students attending Old Dominion University are graduating in four years. This rate of graduation is demoralizing because I have a plan to succeed and graduate from ODU. From these results, I understand that I have to work hard and take my studies very seriously in each subject of every semester. Because a college education offers many benefits, I will be a successful student by obtaining expert advice, by developing effective strategies, and by overcoming my challenges. Psychology Professor Robert S. Feldman explains the benefits of a college education in my ENF textbook (29-31).
What learning activity or emotional response most took me by surprise during the last two weeks? The emotional response that took me by surprise during the last two weeks was the feeling of achieving the goals from the program. Even if we still need to make few changes to our presentation as per Stephanie’s suggestion. I feel that my learning experience during the whole MSBI program and especially during the practicum has already reached its maximum level, with the completion of our presentation. However, I have mixed feelings; satisfaction of being able to complete the program, but at the same time, fears for the oncoming presentation event.
I received the about $4,000 in academic scholarships for attending UW Parkside. I would have never thought this would have been possible when I was in eighth grade. I know that my future in school and my future work job is only going to get stronger with all og the hard work and dedication I am putting into to it right
Since being enrolled in college I have been able to maintain a grade point average of a 3.4 or better for the two semesters that I have attended. Through the ups and downs that came with each semester, I have learned the value of putting in hard work and what it takes to achieve something one desires. Additionally, my academic performance has earned me spots in both the Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society and the Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society. Furthermore, this summer I was able to intern with a pipeline design company, EN Engineering. This was a significant experience for me as it opened up my mind to the possibilities that engineers have to create a better world for everyone.
I am afraid of if I have enough time to prepare my own part at work days. However, I will try my best to finish my part of the project because this class is very important to me. Also, this project is a group work; if I fail to finish my part as our professor expected; the whole project will get a low grade. It is unfair for other group members. So far, I have finished analyzing one source already.
