Although it may not seem like a big deal in hindsight, the first time I failed a test taught me one of the biggest lessons I ever learned: the value of knowing that you are always enough, no matter the situation. As a freshman in high school, I was used to getting good grades with little effort. So taking an AP class seemed like an easy opportunity to buff up my transcript. Little did I know that that would be one of the hardest classes I would take. On one of the first tests we took I scored a forty percent.
How I Graduated High School Have you ever procrastinated for so long that it finally caught up to you? Well that was the story of my life in my senior year of high school. To me, high school wasn’t about learning and doing school work, it was more about hanging out with friends and living a life of leisure and free time. Needless to say, by the end of my sophomore year, everything changed and I learned things the hard way. Getting your responsibilities out of the way, and taken care of is always better done soon rather than later.
The Summer Bridge writing course was not like expected at all. I expected it to be a brief review of what we learned in high school and then we have the posttest. I was wrong in fact; it was not only a review of what we learned in high school but it was also introduction into what college writing classes would be like. This of course surprised me and I did have some difficulty in the beginning of the course, but overtime I became better day by day. Constant writing, proofreading and a little bit of constructive criticism is what I expected from this course.
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,.

For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that

Discover Your Major Day was a very informative event and helped me realize that I needed help to really figure out what I wanted my major to be. The event also made me really understand that a minor or a concentration is a wonderful thing to have. The faculty that I spoke to assisted me greatly and I appreciated that. They were able to explain to me everything I was having trouble understanding. I am very glad that I attended the Discover Your Major Day event because I feel as though if I did not go, I would not have realized that I wanted to add a minor or a concentration to my four years of study here at the University of Memphis.
For instance while thinking about the synthesized essay and the amount of resources needed to write it, I made a plan which helped me manage everything on time. Planning for the structure of my essay helped me use a good amount of recourses and write a good essay. Since I am still in my Freshman year I think that such skills are going to be very helpful in the future. I think that I will be using what I learned from this course in many other courses including, Surveying lab, writing 204, and many other courses. This shows how significant this course

As that depression grew i graduated highschool with C's to D-'s, my family was not happy.
As I maneuver through the secondary school application process, it is nice to have our Secondary School Advisor to ask about interviews, shadow days, and other parts of the application. The entirety of the Secondary School process is stressful, and going through it now has made me think more about applying for colleges. I know if I had to go through college applications with no help, it would be much harder. One piece of Northwest 's program that stood out to me was test preparation for SATs/ACTs. It is also great to have assistance choosing the right college based on what you would like to major in and what your grades are.
After trying for many years to get better grades with little to no success, I gave up on trying and just accepted whatever grade I ended up with. When I got into middle school and started taking classes like Algebra 1 and Spanish that would count for high school credit, it became very apparent to me that the grades that I get in these classes could very easily affect my high school GPA and my ability to get into a college of my choice. It was this realization that pushed me to further improve myself and my better being. During the seventh grade I got diagnosed with ADHD and started a medication regiment that significantly helped me focus and understand the lessons that my teachers were teaching. All of this was great and my grades did significantly improve, but the cons
