I’m preparing myself to raise a child. High school changed everything in my life. I one was good at math, I never had so many teachers leave at one time, my taste in friends was proven to be a typical high school experience, and my free time changed. After Senior year I’m not looking forward to adult for the rest of my
and I was never able to get out of the class. I began to feel as if my writing wasn’t good enough and I began to slack on my writing and reading. And by the time I got into middle school, I wasn’t as enthusiastic about literacy as a once
When I look back in my life, I remember failing many of my literacy tests. All throughout middle school I had a really hard time understanding poetry, novels, and even short stories. I would study really hard in order to grasp the topic and thought I understood it really well. However, when I went to go take the test I would fail and have to retake it. Back then, I never would have thought I would get good grades in any english course.
In the past, many problems prevented me from writing excellent papers. Throughout my years of writing in school, the papers I have written for this class have challenged me the most. In the beginning of the semester, I did not fully understand how much time and effort I needed to put forth to write a college essay. My past English classes did not prepare me for writing college-level essays, nor teach me the proper way in which to write the papers. The essays I have written this semester have improved immensely thanks to the feedback from both Mrs. Menetre and Mrs. Fleming.
To me it is so much easier to write a paper on a short story because it is so much easier to go back and find material for my paper. If I had to read a story,then I would have to go back and read a couple of paragraphs to find the right material for my paper. I can’t stand doing that it bores me especially if it is a book that doesn’t excite me. In Sophomore year english we had to read “The Freedom Writers” which I didn’t really care for and had to write a paper on it. My teacher told me that I had to have at least three pieces of text in my paper to get a good grade.
the worst is when i tried to communicating with the teacher, because im scared of being humiliate. i never raise my hand to give out my opinions or ask questions because i was too scared. i never have an opinion on other stuff, like in a group project or group work. i do what they ask and follow them, like how to write a idea or work on the layout. "unbrave" is when im too scared to say "No".
Senior year has really pushed me to limits. I have had to make numerous sacrifices, but the outcome has definitely been worth it. Senior year is full of “lasts”. The last first day of school, the last first high school basketball game, and many
Eventually I started cramming in my last-minute studying and did as much as I could in that limited amount of time I had. And before I knew it, I was sitting in a school in front of the 4 hour hard test. As soon as I started taking the test, I thought of it to be easy, but
In the first semester of 9th grade I had a 1.4 GPA and managed to raise it to a 3.57 GPA and I am really proud of myself for that. Attendance In my years in high school I miss a day of school very rarely. I haven 't received any awards in my years for perfect attendance but I was really close too it. I feel like if I miss school I would miss really important information and fall behind so I don 't like missing school that often. Having a good attendance is something I take pride in and will help me in the future with my job.
The result of this was my not performing well in the spring quarter of the 2012-2013 academic year at CBC. Success in college is something that I know I can achieve because in the winter quarter of that academic year I passed the two classes I attended with at least a 2.0. The reason for this being that my high school load was lighter so I was able to spend the necessary time on my college work to get those passing grades. It is for this reason that I believe if I hadn 't had to spend as much time on my senior project and speech presentation I would have had more time to focus on my college classes and I would have passed them. The reason I bring this point up is because through this experience I have learned the importance of time management in college and also that if I am able to attend college again I would be able to focus on one academic arena instead of trying to juggle two different course loads.
In The Kite Runner, the arts of literacy, writing, and books are a big part of Amir Jan’s life, hence, why he is an author. Similarly, I too have the same love for books as Amir Jan. I feel as though both of us have the same love for our hobby, reading for many reasons, which, I will discuss in this essay. For this reason, I will also include how my life was prior to my found hobby of reading books. Last, I will explore how my love for reading even came about.
“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free,” wrote Fredrick Douglass. Not only is this true to me but it is also inspirational. The means to learn, understand the world around you, or even communicate would not be possible if you couldn’t read. Reading opens up so many opportunities for everybody that learns to do it. Once you learn to read you have the means to succeed.
Within every subject at school, reading, writing, and chemistry posed a big challenge for me during my high school years. I excel in most subjects, but these three were the hardest to get. The key solution to my problem was to put my mind to it and do very best that I can. This wasn’t easy and I couldn’t do it by myself, there were several factors that allowed me to overcome the difficulties and excel in all subjects. At the reading I was horrible, I couldn’t understand anything I read “What’s the purpose behind reading?”
