Once entering the office I got nervous and asked for the steps to register for classes then that’s when they sent me to the pathway center. After exiting the admission office walking to another office in my mind again it would think I don’t even know where these offices are at and I felt ridiculous walking around because I felt that I looked lost which made me even more nervous. Once I found the pathway center they asked what I needed and I said that I needed help with my class selection. She was very kind and had the patience for me which I liked but bad thing once looking for classes that I needed to take were all full and I didn’t want to take classes that were not necessary so at that point I thought to myself that I might not be
Just when I thought about really giving up a close friend informed me about Job Corps and exactly what it is they do with young adults who are trying to obtain their diploma or to just advance their education. Realizing that without a high school diploma I’m not able to get a job so I really wanted another chance. Once I got here I knew I had to really apply myself like never before and try my best to stick through the program. There are many great opportunities that can really help me with my future. 7 months into the program I’m nearly done with getting my high school and only half way done with my
“Beep, beep, beep” is what most students hear every morning, blaring a message at them, a message telling them to wake up and get ready for school. After this they crawl out of bed and do their typical morning routine, before going to school. Although they may be wishing that school started later which at times, all of us to, however, it shouldn't for multiple reasons. Schools should not start later because a later start can provoke safety issues, cost the school district lots of money for transportation, and interfere with sports, part time jobs, and after-school clubs. To begin, later start times could cause safety problems for elementary students.
Failing my road test is an event I will never forget. I just got out of school and was anxious and excited to take my road test to get my license. As I pulled up to the DMV, I could remember being extremely nervous and feeling as if I were going to fail because of the anxiety. I reassured myself that I had practiced the course numerous times and to remain calm. Before starting the test, I noticed dark gray clouds filling the air that day and the entire experience feeling ominous.
When I think about my middle school years some memories are clear and others not so clear. What I do remember however, is how to felt once I got to middle school. Even before my first day of sixth grade I was extremely nervous. When I walked into the building of Central Middle school I instantly felt an adrenaline rush. I get nervous quite easily so rushing to find my classes didn’t help exactly.
Your one and only mission in a hallway is getting to class. Obviously, some people think it 's totally ok to stand in doorways and chit chat about their fabulous lives when really you just need to focus on getting to class because guess what, you’re in school. Honestly, I really don’t understand some kid’s logic of getting to class because half the time they come bulldozing down the center. All I want to say to some people is “Can you not? ?” Although some people love after-school detention, I for one, do not.
Due to the barriers of the public transit, students are struggling in school and having difficulties in keeping up. This can results to increase in school dropout rates (South, Haynie & Bose, 2007). Many students are unable to keep up with their school work and constantly feeling overwhelmed with both school and their personal life. Students currently attend school, are just striving to get their assignments done on time because if not, they face penalty deduction. However, through the rush, many students are just finishing their assignments for the marks and instantly forgetting everything they have learned.
I started my first day at Middle College and I knew no one. At first, it was a little bit uncomfortable, but I knew if I wanted to get to know the other students I would have to put myself out there. Middle College is very diverse and that made getting to know everyone interesting. In Middle College, you're not just with high school students, though. You're not only mixed with all the college kids on campus, but in
Have you ever felt uncomfortable, nervous, and confused ? These are all the things I felt moving to a new school. I had no idea if I would gain friends or if anyone would like me. Maybe if I had a tour around the new school before my first day I would have not been so disorientated. Going from a one story school to a two story school was hard, having to look down every five seconds to make sure I was on the right hall, or if I was suppose to be upstairs or downstairs.
I believed that high school would be a great difference from middle school. I remember that most of my classmates were scared of the adventure we had before us. I, on the other hand, was excited. Ever since the sixth grade, I have longed to walk those halls. I was tired of the strict rules and limited amount of freedom.
