As a freshman in high school, I was used to getting good grades with little effort. So taking an AP class seemed like an easy opportunity to buff up my transcript. Little did I know that that would be one of the hardest classes I would take. On one of the first tests we took I scored a forty percent.

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.
I realized that I was paying to be here, and that if I was paying to do something I was going to do it well. I can now proudly say that my work ethic is something I can boast about.

Spring of 2014 I started my college career by enrolling at Highline College in Des Moines and take Highline’s placement testing. I scored significantly lower in math than what I had in high school, but I scored into college level English. I was highly discouraged with my math scores, I made excuses why I got those scores, blamed how long the test took, blamed how early it was but, after I calmed down and took the time to really look at the reason why I got the score that and realized It was because of my choice not to study beforehand. There understood that I wasn’t ready for college level math and where I placed was where I needed to start at if I wanted to start my college education with a solid foundation in mathematics. In Fall 2014 I began my first quarter as a Highline
Through high school my grades weren’t the best. I enjoyed challenging classes, but they were a lot of work. Between the work load and problems at home, I didn’t keep up well.

A friend who worked at the local community college contacted me about attending classes in the fall.
My first years of actually being alone in school were in middle school. You see the school I went to wasn't the best but it was better than some of my other options. The beginning of middle school wasn't that hard, but after 6th grade it all went downhill. When I first started middle school I was a straight A student. My 6th grade year was also one of my most traumatic years leading up to high school.
I struggled a lot in my math classes, I think because when I first moved to Lake hamilton I was behind on my multiplication skills, because at my other school we hadn 't learned them yet.

My current GPA for this year is a 3.57, but it isn’t good enough for me because I need a higher GPA to get into a better college. My concentration problems are the main cause for why I’m doing so bad in school.

I could probably fix this habit, but I’m usually too lazy or sleepy to try.
I didn’t win but I earned recognition for my grades and attitude. That year I earned six A’s and six O’s for outstanding. Even though I ended well, sixth grade was not the greatest year for me because I made a lot of mistakes. I forgot homework assignments and due dates.

I 've always been told that life will knock you down, but it 's getting back up that shows your true character. My whole life has been a series of ups and downs.

Tests and allies had come and it was hard. I still didn 't have many friends at school. Getting along with my classmates was something I still struggled with.
