Having the right attitude people will be able to avoid senioritis with full force. According to Weisman(2014), as soon as someone falls into the not caring attitude it will be difficult to get out (Weisman, 2014). If someone decides to start not caring during his or her senior year and go through the whole summer break with no school work, it will be hard to get back in the swing of things when the first year of college comes. Another way Weisman(2014), says to avoid senioritis is, take classes that give college credit (Weisman, 2014). Taking college credit during high school will save many people money and time in college.
The definition of dedication also seems simple, “the quality of being committed to a task or purpose.” To reach my academic goals for the end of the current school year I have to begin putting the majority of my energy into my school work. It is a lot easier to put my focus and dedication wholeheartedly into the work I need to do for school now that Speech and Debate is over. The main thing I need to teach myself how to do is to get home from school and immediately begin working on anything school related, even if it is due in a month. I have gotten in a bad habit of procrastinating or coming up with excuses and those habits need to be nipped in the bud.
To the Younger Generation, oh how I wish there was an easy way to get through this thing they call high school. To be honest, I would search for that every day of my life as I go through high school and I can say that there is no easy way. High school is a necessary evil that is different for every single person that attends. It is fun and then it is not want you would like at all. As you venture through it you will soon realize these things and this is my way of telling you how to best go through it with the most ease.
We all look forward to the day of graduation and the day we turn our dreams to reality some find it easy and some find it difficult. I remember being in high school two years ago and thinking about what I wanted to do after graduation as to -- whether I should go straight to nursing school or start off at a community college to eventually transfer to a four year university. In life, lots of students come across transitioning from high school to college to become successful in life and to achieve their goals. Some people find it easy or difficult to transition from high school to college. The reason for this is people fail to realize that high school is way different than college.
The third step is to set aside time to work on any papers or homeworks for all classes so that I do not feel pressured or rushed. By dedicating at least 1-2 hours per day on the weekends to schoolwork, I can manage my workload without feeling overburdened. The final step is the limit or work around procrastination. If I couldn’t get rid of this habit up until now, it would be near impossible to do so within the next few months. The next best option is to learn how to manage my procrastination so that I can still get work done.
Every student coming into the upcoming school expects to learn things from an academic standpoint, and quite often personal growth is overlooked. When students are taught how to properly read and analyze literature, the students mainly focus on their improved abilities and miss lessons that can be learned from the stories themselves. When papers are due and are being written the night before, sometimes thoughts such as “this is stupid,” or “why does this matter,” arise instead of thinking about not procrastinating and understanding that paper was put off. As a senior on the verge of graduating, I can say I have finally realized the best parts of academics, the life lessons learned and the social aspect. Yes the content learned is very important,
So that is why I try ad live my life to best that I can. Not foolishly and taking unnecessary risk but just going on through my life trying my best not afraid of death. One of the main goals I had set for this semester was that I would pass all my class as this is my first semester at USF and I want to start my GPA out right. Sadly, I know that I didn’t always work my hardest when it came to this class, but, I know I should
The author suggests, “ To succeed in school, you don’t have to be brilliant. You just have to show up and do the problems and essays and reading you are asked to do.” This may be the simplest suggestion in the article. Overall, 11th grade will be over sooner than you can imagine. Junior year may be the hardest year in high school, on the other hand, it can be the most rewarding year when you receive an acceptance letter from the college of your dream. As much as students hate staying up late and being stressed, in their future, all their hard work will pay off and will be a distant
Throughout my few weeks of taking this english course I have had time to reflect on my writing skills and I believe that I definitely have room for improvement. While my writing is not terrible it isn’t where I would like for it to be, and as of now I would prefer to be at the level of a college student. It is going to take a lot of hard work to get to where I want to be at, but with everything that I have learned throughout this course I think it may not be as tough as I thought. As a writer I believe that trying to go above and beyond what is asked, creating really strong proposal are my strength, but trying to go above and beyond, and not being able to execute it properly is my biggest mistake. Whenever I write I often think ahead of what I want to write and the apply it to my paper, but sometimes in the writing process I just blank out, and can’t think of the right words to say and which ones not to say and ultimately it leads to an internal conflict on whether or not I should leave it
I thought this opportunity would not be one worth wild, but I am excited to return to my new school and new friends at the beginning of the next year and after the winter break. It may have taken me a couple of months into this school year to grow into the idea of switching schools, but now I could not be happier and cannot wait for softball season to meet even more
This is the first year doing intersession at CCMS. intersson is an break from the work,but if you are struggling in a subject then you will be in enrichment. If you are excelling in all of your subjects, then you will be in acceleration. I think it is a great idea and I think it will help in the long run. A principal once said “ work hard, but played harder”.
This is currently my first year enrolling in Richland College, but the experience is just the beginning. The earliest memory of reading was all the syllabus that each class had before school started. I chose to be in college because I’m striving for a better future, instead of working at a retail store and less pay for all the work I’ve contributed. Being an expert reader can help me out in the long run because it helps me with comprehension and critical thinking when I encounter a real world problem. Now getting in idea of what we are doing in class, I think you are doing just fine helping me prepare for what is ahead of me and I greatly appreciate that.
Without taking summer courses I will not be able to receive this minor without an extra semester at school or overburdening myself for a few semesters. Learning sign language is very important to me while I am studying to become a teacher. Most likely during my time in the classroom I will have multiple students with hearing disabilities. To help accommodate
Being honest, I didn’t look at any of my notecards but having them was making me feel more secure and less stressful since I shouldn’t worry that I am going to forget some concept or formula at the time of the exam. It is also very important for you to understand the material not just memorize it. Otherwise, you probably will forget most of the information right after your final exam. So much energy in this class. Every time when walked out the class I was ready for new goals and achievements in my life.
One of my priorities would that everyone gets involved in the hall activities and come out of their shell. It took my RL weeks before I started participating more in the hall and dorm activities. I want to do the same for the newcomers so they enjoy their college experience. In addition, I would to help those in the same hall with their school work as I already help some hallmates struggling in classes I have already taken. Overall, the students of the dorm come first, and they should never leave Tarleton with regrets of
