As the competition season and school began the amount of work for me to do increased. Having an AP class for the first time, three honors class, and a college course my balance for work slowly diminished. It grew harder and harder to focus on all of these but rather than quit I Singh 2 redoubled my effort. This was a significant point for me because I was going at my own problems alone. As the season progressed I got better until concert band season.
Every dime I earn working at Reynolds Community College and every grant and scholarship I receive will go towards my passion of studying human behavior and applying everything I learn to bringing every community I can reach, a giant leap forward. After receiving my associates degree in Social a Science I decided to take a year off to work towards finding what it is that I really want to pursue. I have searched for that 'something ' that will keep me intrigued and awake all hours of the night without realizing it. I have eliminated the idea of simply working to make ends meet or finding a good job to support my family and "living" outside the 40+ hours of a weekday job. I am pursuing much more and I am confident that I have found a path leading me to wake up before my alarm clock sounds instead of praying for more time.
However, my parents worried that I may dismiss my education for money. After discussing the matter though, it was agreed I would keep my job to pay for college. Having a job though had a big impact on my life, it motivated me to pursue a career, and go to college. Similar to many people my age, I was uncertain with what I wanted to do, or study in college. My original plan was to take a gap year between high school, and college where I could work while saving money for school, yet think about a career path.
Honestly, this may surprise you, but honestly, I am sad to leave the middle school. I have had many good memories in my times at the middle school, but I have also had some not so good memories. Even though I dread coming to school everyday, the teachers, the staff members, and the students make it a lot better. The best memories I have had at the middle school deal with Cougar News, Yearbook, and Junior Honor Society.
Sophomore year, I learned more about hard work than ever in my life so far. I doubled up in science, I was constantly bogged down by copious English assignments, and my basketball coach pushed me further than anyone had ever before. I made a lot of bittersweet memories in the hot, musty OAC that winter during those practices. Junior year was an absolute blur. I made an effort to engage in my friendships and learn more about the people around me.
It feels good to do work the way I do it. All my life I have been a creative person; I find a way to complete tasks that usually involves trickery or cutting corners. There was no room for this in
At first, I was excited, but then that excitement shifted to dread. This dread came from the pressures of high school. I was scared that if I did poorly in school, my performance would affect the college I go to and the job I will get. The one thing that helped me keep focus the most was naps.
I have taken responsibility for what I have done in the past and are pushing myself to work harder to reach all my goals to make me a better person within society. I have faced many challenges as well as setbacks this past year, but I have and I know I can find a way to manage my time to reach my full potential. I find myself juggling school and my full course load, club volleyball, work and making my car payments, getting a decent amount of sleep and having a social life. I do admit it can be overwhelming at times
School had always been something I was good at. All through my academic career, up until my sophomore year of college, school never stressed me out too bad. Trying to be a successful student, employee, friend, and family member can be very overwhelming. Once I entered college I was faced with many obstacles that challenged me to balance all the roles in my life. During my fall semester of my sophomore year in college I experienced the most difficult time ever.
Just the thought of not knowing what I was supposed to do with the rest of my life made the last little bit of my senior year, very stressful. I then found out that not knowing and being undecided was perfectly okay and I was ready to begin my freshman year at Saint Petersburg College. Talking about graduating high school always seemed unrealistic because it was such a huge goal. After graduation, I had never felt so proud of myself.
The type of work you end up doing does affect your aspect on life in general. The more you find yourself loving your job, the more you 'll find yourself in a happy state of matter. As Rachel Becksted states, “Since we spend a majority of our life working, job satisfaction can be a large factor in our overall satisfaction and sense of well being.” For example, if you 're not happy with the type of career you have, that can lead to depression or stress. If you are pleased with your career, you 'll find yourself stress free and at peace with the way your life has turned out.
