The overall semester definitely had its up’s and downs . As a Peer Mentor I have learned to appreciate my hardwork much more and also learned that speaking up a lot is key to key action to many things. One of my goals for the semester as a Peer Mentor was to get to know my peer mentees on a friendship level or maybe as acquaintances.

It is very competitive and you have to strive to get the best grades you can possibly get. I have also learned that I am going to have to put aside some of the extracurricular activities that I used to do before I got into college. I have to put everything I have in my classes so that I can be the best nurse that I can possibly be.

I often worried about my grades in the AP courses and sometimes I was depressed and at times demotivated. Since the AP courses were compulsory for the 11th graders, I had no choice but to work hard and manage to cope with the studies. Nights became days during 11th grade year.

The to do list will include all assignments, reading, and studying I have to do each week. This will help me to avoid accidently forgetting something and therefore cause my grade in the class to suffer. Each time after an exam, I will evaluate with myself what I thought I did well and what I thought I needed to improve on with my studying and test taking skills. If I get a grade of C or lower on any of my exams, I will make an effort to see the professor to discuss my exam and look over my exam. Each week I will read all the readings and make notes while I read, and if something does not make sense to me make a special note to ask about it in class or go to the professor’s office hours to ask the question.
