Whenever I ask my friend Kip a computer-related question, I end up regretting it. Once he gets started, Kip is unable to stop talking about computers. When I needed his help the last time, my printer wasn’t working. Instead of just solving the problem, Kip went on and on about print settings and font choices that I could be using. When he gets like this his face lights up and I feel bad for not wanting to hear the latest news on software upgrades, e-mail programs, and, hardware improvements.
Last Friday I was a Survivor Conestoga Event. I learned about security in campus, but the speaker was not a very good communicator. The prize was amazing, but I didn’t win noting. I learning and improve my English on this event while other classmates were at home. In my opinion the schedule was very fast because we didn’t have a time for discuss about the topic.
While there was never a need for me to anglicize my name, it made me remember an odd incident back when I was an undergraduate student. Back when I was trying to find a thesis supervisor I often had to send emails to professors expressing my interest in working with them. For some reason, I noticed that whenever I signed the email off with my full name my email was ignored but when I signed the email with just my first name I often got replies, and invitations to meet with the professor in person to talk more about potential thesis ideas. While it may have just been a coincidence, it struck me as strange at the time and I would be lying if I said it did not bother me. Anyways other than that, I don 't think my name has caused me
I combated with this challenge for the first semester of the year. I made numerous attempts to speak up in the classroom, but during my of these attempts, the class usually changed topics or someone already brought up my idea before I could speak. I attempted asking the only friend I have in the class to help open up the conversation for me, but that proved to be futile when many other students leaped at the opportunity when a new topic opens up. Every effort I made to get a spot in the debate did not work in my favor. At the end, I was left with only one option.
I like a generally quiet environment while I work, because I need to concentrate solely on one thing and I find if there is more than one audio distraction I try to listen to everything all at once. I learned I can’t type out notes in class, despite being a fast typist because the information just doesn’t stay with me the same way as it does when I write it down longhand. I appreciate smaller groups, particularly in subjects I feel uncomfortable with like mathematics. I’m a returning student who hasn’t been in a true college setting in 20 years. I don’t remember how to “college” and I don’t even know that I did it right the first time around.
Do you like college parking? Most would say no that it needs to be fixed. There are many things that make college parking awful that range from space to the distance spots are from buildings. Dalton State seems to have a shortage of parking spaces especially during the morning classes when most students take class. Dalton state needs to rectify this parking problem, maybe instead of renovating the student center the college could at the very least attempt to make parking less of a hassle then it is now.
The reason for finishing quickly is because I lack time often. Since my schedule includes honors classes, clubs/organizations, and participation in community service my time exists as very limited. When it comes to asking questions I do so, but only when the teacher is available. When assignments need to be turned in, I always turn them in on time. I rarely ever turn in an assignment in late unless I’m not caught up with my nursing homework.
His classroom had physics posters and a periodic table; he was also one of the few teachers that had a chalkboard rather than a whiteboard. When Physics actually started, the teacher would demand us to sit down and listen, and based off this, it seemed that he had a past experience as a lecturer in University. The method of his teaching was somewhat hard to follow, as he would usually be talking for most of the time. It also seemed that the teacher was always rushing to get the material finished on time, as last semester, he had failed to complete teaching physics on
I prepped a lot for my Mock interview by doing the notes in class, but also by going home and practicing. The notes that we had to take in class informed me with a lot of information that I did know, and also information I did not know. For an example, I did not know that you are not supposed to wear perfume. I always thought the better you smell the better impression you will make, but that is not true when it comes to an interview for a job. Another thing I did not know was that you should send the person that interviewed you a thank you letter.
I struggled a lot with that lesson because I was so used to my old ways that I did not want to learn that actual right ways. I eventually got over my stubbornness and learned the rules for where to put the apostrophe. The knowledge in this course has helped me write my research paper for other college class, Dual General Psychology. The knowledge I learned from this class I used a lot to help me write my research paper in there. I think without the knowledge from this class I would not have done as well as I did on that paper.
Xander did nothing in class and told the substitute and Mr. Loftis that he did not have his device. He spent a lot of the period listening to music. Mr. Loftis asked him once again about the device and he discovered the device was in his Xander 's backpack. He continued listening to music instead of working. Xander had a great start to his time at HHS, but over the last few weeks he has done very little in class, been very disruptive, and has to be reminded most days on what the expectations are at the beginning of class (seated with something to write with and something to write on).
