One reason that I have not achieved the minimum satisfactory progress requirements is because in the last quarter that I attended Columbia Basin College (CBC) I spent most of my time on a senior project and presentation that I had to complete in order for me to graduate from Columbia High School. Another reason was because my first quarter of college I wasn 't prepared for the rigors of college. The workload wasn 't something I was able to handle and the result of this was that I didn 't get a good grade in either of the classes that I attended. During winter quarter I learned from my mistakes and was able to get at least a 2.0 in both of the classes that I took. For my senior project I had to complete a task for a minimum of 30 hours and
I have never lived in a place for more than two years (I have lived in nine different states), and the lack of stability has made developing close friendships impossible. I think that going to college would help me make close friends, which is something I have never gotten to experience. I am also extremely excited to be able to follow a curriculum and courses all the way through. Switching high schools all of the time meant switching curriculum, and having to learn new things at each school that did not build on what I previously had learned. I had to do a lot of catching up each time we moved, and it will be nice to not have to do that anymore.
Madisen Hansen Period A3 There are twenty six letters in the alphabet, and never had I thought that five letters could be arranged in such a painful way. APUSH was a class that I had originally taken because my parents simply did not think I could do it. So I took the hardest class in the school. But I didn’t learn just history. I got more out of that class than I have ever gotten out of my high school career.
The SATs were right around the corner, and I had no idea how to prepare myself to get a good score. This lesson of not using my time wisely had affected me in bound to failure. But after I had realized my failure, I tried to make it into a success by using my time more sufficiently and not making mistakes as I did before. My failure with the SAT was a fundamental way to later success. I never had picked up the SAT book until a month before my test, which was a big failure.
She emphasized how i needed to have high grades if i wanted to stand a chance. But as i grow older i couldn 't compete to the level she wanted, that 's not to say that she forced me to get the best of grades. But i always felt as if i wasn’t good enough so eventually i stopped trying. By then i had come to terms in my own mind on how i couldn’t get into college because of my family’s lack of money and my low grades overall. But during my sophomore year i saw how my school 's avid class was accepting applications to join the class.
Classes in college have been a slight change from classes in high school, which I had expected. The one thing I did not expect was how independent I was going to have to be in my classes. In high school, teachers were extremely helpful in telling you what you needed to do to succeed. I have learned that in college I am going to have to decide what I need to do to succeed. Over the past month, I have slowly been figuring out what I am going to need to do to succeed in each individual class.
Since I practiced writing, and earned straight A 's in all my courses last semester, I decided to take English-101 this semester. Instead of paying extra money to take English-50, I thought I would just take English-101 and work extra hard to be successful. My problem with the literacy narrative is that I can 't write about myself. I guess it 's because I 'm embarrassed I 'm only starting college now, and have realized I 've been neglected in life. Whatever it is, I just can 't write about myself in my literacy narrative if I have to share it in class.
The challenges I have faced influenced my academic performance and guided me into pursuing my college education. My junior year was a struggle for me. I decided to challenge myself like I have never been challenged before. I took on an honors class that I clearly wasn 't ready for, but I stuck with it and was determined to finish. In the beginning the intensity surprised me and I did not do as well as I would have liked to.
I am so motivated to attend a four year college. I don’t want to make the same mistakes my mom made. She never completed her education and we have really struggled. She is still trying to get a degree one credit at a time at night. When my mom was young she didn’t get the opportunity to go to school.
Around my junior year is the when I knew had to start narrowing down my college choices. I was very excited to finally see I was one step closer to going into adult hood. Unfortunately, my Aunt passed away during my junior year which put my family in a financial bind trying to pay for her funeral because she didn’t have any life insurance. We didn’t except an unfortunate event to happen but I knew I had to sty strong and stay true to my dream. While she
4.4 reflection 1. the workload is what I expected. What I wasn’t expecting was the amount of time I would need to set aside a week to study. 2. psychology is the class that demand the most amount of time out side of the class. I been able to complete all the homework outside of class, now I need to find the best way to study for the tests. 3. cutting my work schedule would be the only way I would have more time to
Every morning I have to spend an hour in order to send my baby to the babysitter and another an hour before I get on campus. As I spending two hours in the morning to get on campus and two hours to get home was through for me. Sometimes, I am late to class, missed examinations or missed the beginning of every topic with the early morning classes. This made me feel tensed and uncomfortable in those classes. Some professors, it was okay with them, but others it was a tag of war.
I almost went to every class in the first half semester, but the midterm grade is not appropriate. I did not go to several last classes, but I studied and reviewed at home, that is also the reason that I can get a good grade in the final. I am so sorry for my bad grade

My first semester of college was quite rough, as early on a tumor was found in my mom’s hip. I was forced to drive home and help my mother and family out, making my transition into college extremely difficult for a while. My two Q drops my first semester were not because of my inability to understand the work, for when I retook calculus I got an 89 in it, but rather the difficulty I had dealing with this tough time and transitioning into college. Sadly, I also had to use two Q drops last semester with some scheduling issues with my afternoon classes because of that business I was running to pay for my tuition and necessities. I had to make a sacrifice here due to the fact that majority of my family 's money has been going towards medical expenses and my dad had lost his job.
