When the time came to actually do it, I think I was pretty successful. I physically marked my planner to assure I wouldn’t forget and I made sure that the actual work I had to do wasn’t too lengthy since I split my work up over multiple days. My problem wasn’t the actual work itself, but rather starting it in the first place. I’d often procrastinate and put it off
I try to be as realistic as possible in most situations, I know college is not going to be easy especially with the major that chose me. But after my visits to Lindenwood I understand all the ways that help is accessible to me. And since my failure in Algebra 2 the year prior I’ve gained new ways to make it fool proof that I remember to do my work. With the help of calendars, alarms on my phone, and writing and recording notes as the professor speaks I feel that I am prepared to succeed at college. With these tools I fully plan on surpassing others in my pursuit of higher education.
With completing the third semester in practicum placement, I was able to benefit from a variety of new things from the class. The placement gave me the opportunity to refresh my memory and skills in what I have learnt two semesters ago. My biggest huddle for this semester was my time management. I am a procrastinator, so completing assignments on time was and still is a challenge for me. I have not come to a full solution to this problem yet, but I did make changes in my life as to how I can manage time management.
Throughout this semester, I have had many struggle when it came down to doing an assignment for ENC1102. When it comes down to my growth, I have noticed throughout my papers that various struggle I had in the past, are now not as difficult for me. One of the main examples of this is being able to clearly state my thesis. The thesis statement has always been an issue for me because I never really knew how to get my point across clearly through a thesis statement. When doing the proposal, I had to figure out how to properly state my thesis and have it linked into the rest of the paper.
Community service is not only about receiving hours to put on a resume, but it is something you do to guide others and make them feel better. An example of this was when I was part of the MLK day of service at Stockton University two years in a row where I sewed pillows and pins to support the unfortunate; this was a great experience where I was able to make new friends and contribute to the society.Service is not only about being part of large organizations, but it is also about doing small deeds for others, like staying after school and contributing to the club even if it is not mandatory. I also was part of Project Green where I picked up garbage on the beach and planted marram grass. I am the type of person that likes helping the elderly and the needy; so when I go to India, giving clothes and food to the boys and girls who have nothing to eat and sleep with an empty stomach is a priority to me during my trip. The Atlantic County Library is also somewhere I volunteer; helping young children read books and organizing craft days on the weekends.
The two themes also appear to have a profound connection which helps readers understand the importance of these themes in the ranch life of men. Hope is strived through dreams. These dream help give meaning to life and something to live up to. For example, Candy joining George and Lennie's dream of owning land shows how a mutual dream can breed hope and fellowship. After the passing of his dog, Candy encounters a profound feeling of misfortune and feels empty.
The definition of dedication also seems simple, “the quality of being committed to a task or purpose.” To reach my academic goals for the end of the current school year I have to begin putting the majority of my energy into my school work. It is a lot easier to put my focus and dedication wholeheartedly into the work I need to do for school now that Speech and Debate is over. The main thing I need to teach myself how to do is to get home from school and immediately begin working on anything school related, even if it is due in a month. I have gotten in a bad habit of procrastinating or coming up with excuses and those habits need to be nipped in the bud.
I don't need to hit the further or better, to play a lower score you need to stop failing shots, and when failing, being able to make an up and down. Going to a good college would increase my probabilities of having a good job after graduating. The best thing would be to go to an American or English college or university, if it isn't t possible I will probably study at Spain. These goals are going to be really important to my five years plan. If I reach my first goal, it is going to help me to get in a college because colleges are interested in students that practice sports, so you can give them something.In case I reach my second goal I'll already be in college so my five years plan would be
I feel as though I could benefit National Honor Society through my leadership qualities, willingness to dedicate my time to the community, positive character, and perseverance to succeed in academics. While I may not hold many leadership positions at this time, I am able to step up and take charge in any necessary situations. Additionally, one can see that it is important that I take time out of my day to serve others as I devote two hours each weekend to volunteer. My academic standing is also of importance to me, believing that consistency in school is a crucial factor in achieving success. I challenge myself by choosing to take any honors or AP classes available and striving to put forth utmost effort in each class.
With adpating to the changes around me I hope that I can bring improvement to them and get back where I am usually at. Most of the time when things get steady I find simplier to keep up and to produce better work-quality with my time studying. However, being steady is my weak point right now and I got to learn more study habits that will allow me to adjust easier this semester than my last few. Evualt, pratice, time management are three implrant parts of studying, and by applying these it helps me with the stucture I need. Finishing entry September 3,2014, I hope this can be found useful to anyone who is trying figure out what type study habit they
