It would be a lot easier with only seven classes with a study hall too. Then we would have longer lunches or at least more than eight periods. The classes can give us more time to finish our work. The less classes we have the less homework we have to do. So that you won’t keep falling asleep in class if you just get your work finished and turn it in on time instead with a short class with not any time to get to your next class.
I was eleven years old and in my last year of elementary school when I found out about my parents decision to move. I was moving from Brick, New Jersey to Howell, New Jersey. When I told my friends at school, a flood of tears came streaming down their faces. It was very hard for me to leave all my affable friends behind because I had made so many precious memories
The year and a half I spent after high school wondering what I should do with my life was a pretty low point in my life. I was confused and most of the time thought poorly of myself. College has helped re-invigorate me and helped me see my self-worth again. Going to class and seeing myself succeed made me feel better than I had in quite a while. Then finding a career that I am excited about has helped me be eager for what the future holds.
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.
n AP Chemistry, test scores weigh heavily on our grade in the class so they are not taken lightly. It just so happened that the Tennessee HOSA (Future Health Professionals) Leadership Conference coincided with the final days of lecture and review for the test that was to take place the day after HOSA members arrive home. My teacher specifically told me and a classmate, who was also a HOSA competitor, that we were not expected to take the test on Monday but rather one day after school. Since she had given us extra time, we both focused on studying for our respective competitions rather than the AP Chemistry test. This, however, turned out to be a horrible mistake.
Self-Analysis Writing is essential to everyday life. Some enjoy writing more than others do. I try my best to do what is expected of me. Sometimes I think I put to much effort in my work and do not give myself the credit that I should. Therefore, when it comes to writing, my self-esteem is low, and this causes me to procrastinate and put off the writing assignment until the very last minute.
At the end of the journey, I had gained a lot from these 4 years, but it also prepared me for my next journey, my journey through university. In conclusion, both the archetypes of the student and the journey have a big role in my life. Understanding both archetypes helped me through my years at high school and will hopefully help me in the future years to
Even now, I use this mantra daily, even translating it outside of school. When I ask for fewer hours at my job during busy weeks, I remind myself that the hours I do work that week are enough. Sometimes I have to skip a few activities to catch up on my sleep, and I’m able to tell myself that the activities I did go to that week were enough. I repeat this quote to myself multiple times a day, and even made a poster with it to hang on my wall. Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point.
I stayed in the class and started paying attention and learning. I stayed even though every day that I went in that class I felt really intimidated and anxious. I guess I wanted to prove to myself that probably I could do better than my older brother. I guess I did not want to disappoint my 9th grade teacher who did not give up on me. I guess I did not want to disappoint myself because I know I can do it.
Almost forgot the name of my high school is Adrian Wilcox High, home of the thunder if I remember correctly or lightning one of the two but I digress. After the first period of class, which nothing much really happened but explaining school rules and such. I began to realize that high school feels the same as middle school expect there were four times the students than there is in eighth grade; walking down the halls I can feel eyes of the higher grades scoping not only myself but a majority of the other freshmen knowing we are struggling to find our scheduled classes. Lunch finally comes around I start opening up to other students to make and try to make some friends, I remember lunch and after were my favorite times back then my classes were easy and so chill
Breaks like these give student and teachers much needed time to blow off the anger built up inside of them. The environment of schools with year-round schedules is much better because of it since students don’t have that anger built up inside of them and teachers are not frustrated at the students as much, “ Teachers who work for year-long schools say that it gives them a break when they are on the verge of a meltdown.” (Long). It also lowers the amount of students who get in trouble at school, "I haven 't had one student sent to the office all week. And I know why. We 've just had two weeks off, everyone is refreshed, remotivated and their fire has been rekindled."
My short term goal for this week and the week coming forward is to continue to use my time wisely to study for the last few test that we will have. I have progressed a lot this month with getting my grade up. In the beginning of the month I can honestly say I did not use my time like I should have. I did not fully read the chapters I was given, and my grade showed. The second quiz my grade went up a little more, and during that time I did take the time to read some, but not all chapters.
