I always have to rush in the morning because I oversleep by accident and Andrew has the same issue. At one part of the story, Andrew oversleeps so much that he misses the bus and has to call his parents to come pick him up. Last year, I accidentally turned off my alarm instead of snoozing it, and as a result of that, I woke up at about 11:30 and the phone call to my dad was not a fun
In 2007, my mom, sister, and I all moved to Houston from Pennsylvania. In elementary school and most of middle school, my dad seldom called me outside of school, and it was hard for me to talk to him even when he visited me. In 7th grade, my mom would frequently get mad at me, and I would have nobody else to have a conversation with about my troubles, because my Dad was often busy with work. Although these problems seem troubling, long, and difficult, I still got through them. I ended my 7th grade year at Trafton with a very low self-esteem with hatred for everything, but was ready to take on the challenge of a new school,
A solution to this is that school start times should be pushed will help the kids focus and do better in the morning class. In the morning I am and most kids are tired, I am never fully awake for school. Lauren Schloss said "I was tired for the first few hours of school," the same goes for me and many other people I know. Sometimes I sometimes forget what we learned, and I can not focus. And this all comes from lack of sleep.
I had been homeschooled my entire school career, but after a lot of failing tests and crying, my mom decided it would be best if I tried public school. I was not into the idea at all. I thought that those public school kids would destroy me, they knew so much more than I did, (Not true) and had so much more social experience (Also not true). I had been going to church activities for my entire life, and my parents made it a point to sign me up for weekend painting camps, and classes at the rec center. Yet it was nothing compared to the 6+ hours these kids have been at school every day.
My Collapse and Restitution When people see me walking through the halls of school, or walking down the street they may see me as an underachiever, or even a slacker; if they had seen me last year or the year before perhaps they would have been right. My Freshman and Sophomore year I struggled to pass many of my classes. I had begun to give up on anything school related for the purpose of "enjoying my youth while I still could". Back in November of my Freshman year my Uncle Gary passed away suddenly of a heart attack which made me begin to realize the importance of living a full life and doing what is important to you. To tell the truth, I despise the idea of becoming someone who works in an office for the entirety of their life in a dead
Every student starting middle school has a conflict in making new friends the first days of school. Me myself also had problems making new friends because I was very shy. Fortunately I had one of my friends from elementary school. Although I'd love to tell you the way I made friends I changed over the year to survive middle school. Overall I was a good student in elementary, but I had many flaws and I still do.
The transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me. The 3 reasons why the transition was a big change for me was because I don't have classes with my friends, I don't have effective teachers, and my curfew was extended when I entered high school. Having to adapt to this change has been hard for me, but slowly I am getting used to it. Having different classes from my friends is one of the reasons why the transition from middle school to high school was a big change for me. For example, in middle school, I had all my class with my best friends.
I guess I did not want to disappoint myself because I know I can do it. I am just not that quite confident. I guess I wanted to have a better goal in life and be able to aim and accomplish a bigger dream rather than working for low wage paying job like my older brother. This then became my motivation to do better and work harder in class. I work harder than the rest of my classmates due to my limitations with my English.
Since, I do not find writing interesting this makes me procrastinate. I put the assignment off until the very last minute. Sometimes I second guess myself wondering if I am going to be able to have it done before the deadline, then I think, “I always manage to pull it off.” Since having children, I have become horrible at time management. My evenings are spent with my children and husband. After they go to bed is when I can work on my school assignments.
I put an effort in every set that we do in practice. I never give up on a hard set. I struggle with some of the sets that we do, but I always push through until the end of practice. My teammates and my coaches push me to work hard at every practice. At every practice, I take the time to work on each of the different stroke turns, like the butterfly
I think later start times are very good. In the article it states that, "They also improve academic success, attendance, medical health and cut sleep-related car accidents" (NEWSELA). I agree because I hate getting up and then I don 't want to go to school because it is so early. If they delayed it an hour, then I could function and be excited for school. So many times I have gotten sick because I got up so early and it was cold so I got sick because I didn 't get enough sleep.
While I have improved in other areas I got worse in my self-esteem. To begin, This year decision making has been very important for me. Having poor decision making skills was really not an option. In the past deciding something took so much effort and a lot of time. This year I learned that if you set up a thought out process then decision making should be easier.
