I was freaking out and didn’t know what to do. I put in a lot of effort studying for this final exam. My teacher called me up after the final exam was graded. We sat down and worked on it together. She told me that just because I wasn't getting through with math, that doesn’t give me a reason to give up.
Distractibility is the quality of being liable to distraction, being unable to concentrate or to produce sustained attention. Distractibility refers to how easily, or not so easily, things going on around us disrupt our thought processes and attention. Some people are highly distractible, noticing every sight and sound around them; therefore it is not surprising that some people struggle daily to focus on a certain task. When working on a task, they are often side-tracked and have a difficult time paying attention. Distraction can impair productivity and increase the risk of accidents (Wallace and Vodanovich, 2003).
However, the prejudgements, rumors, misinterpretations, etc. often lead to making that person a target not because of their own self, but for their appearance. Those same reasons also lead to the lack of empathy in an individual. The Maycomb County folks are, “... so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.” (Lee p. 73). They are so busy worrying about protecting themselves that they even forget about the others.
I felt that no one had faith in me and I had no idea how to complete the obstacle. One day I realized I can pull off a comeback and be successful. I challenged my work ethic. I knew the only way I had a chance to revive myself in the class was to do virtually endless math problems which would take hours and hours of time. I looked at the challenge as a test to prove how bad I wanted to succeed.
Instead of doing my work like I was supposed to do, I completely slacked off on it. I talked to my friends in the morning and didn’t do my homework. The unfinished work accumulated, and once the Second Quarter was about to end, I realized if I didn’t finish and hand in all the worksheets, I’ll fail in all of my subjects. Since I wanted to pass the quarter, I had to finish all of that work. I estimated that I had around two weeks to finish the stacks of paper, so if I did three or four worksheets at night quietly after my curfew of nine o’clock and early in the morning six o’clock, I’ll be able to finish most of my work.
University students including myself time and again lay off sleep for other happenings such as studying, doing homework or even just staying up for the night with a friend. Through a biological clock called the Circadian rhythm, our bodies follow the twenty-four hour cycle of each day and night. Throughout the week, postponing sleep and missing meals makes it arduous to concentrate in class. After lunch, I tend to grow heavy-eyed and tired which leads to me struggling to focus on my other courses. In the afternoon, this impacts my body because it does not give me energy, but instead makes me snooze earlier in the day.
It was pretty hard to do a lesson in two days and then have quiz after quiz after quiz. I quickly fell behind and couldn 't seem to catch up, I just found everything so hard. My parents soon notice and they sat me down and talked to me about how I was
Observation: I never procrastinated when I was younger, but as I got older for some reason I began to delay my responsibilities as much as possible. I observed as my peers did the same and left important task to the very last minute. I have stayed up late at night trying to finish a project that was due the next day simply because I delayed doing it earlier. I have run around like crazy and stressed out about filling out applications a day before the deadline because I wasted my time doing other things. I also saw many of my peers doing the exact same thing.
It depends on how we use it as to whether it makes us more or less lonely.” Technology will not isolate us if we learn to control our time to use it. We will not feel isolated or alone if we spend time communicating with people around us instead of texting. Occasionally, we need to stop looking on the computer or phone screens and stop focusing on texting or facebooking to realize that the reason why we feel isolated is because we prevent ourselves from the real world. There are people around us who want our company and our presence, but we are blind to see them because of addicting
Thus, my mother decided that I will change my school the next year so for me to transfer I had to really work hard in the last term, term 3, so I can get accepted as an 11th grader. For the next two months that was left of the school year, I stayed up late to study and went to my teachers to seek help. I was eager to show everyone that I can pass this school year. After the two months, I sat for my final exams. I was so nervous and afraid of failing that I will stop my exam for a few minutes to just focus again.
According to the TNCC 's Graduation Transfer Retention report, only 15.7 percent of students were able to complete their degree in 2012. This statistic is appalling because the students are working hard in their classes, paying the college 's financial gills, and hoping to get their degree. Some of student cannot graduate. I am attending Thomas Nelson Community College, and I hope to earn my degree within two years. Although college is difficult, I will be successful by seeking advice from experts and developing some effective study strategies.
Every morning I have to spend an hour in order to send my baby to the babysitter and another an hour before I get on campus. As I spending two hours in the morning to get on campus and two hours to get home was through for me. Sometimes, I am late to class, missed examinations or missed the beginning of every topic with the early morning classes. This made me feel tensed and uncomfortable in those classes. Some professors, it was okay with them, but others it was a tag of war.
Attending classes on a daily basis when I first attended college wasn’t all too well. I had personal problems going on that I was worried about, not knowing that my school work was getting a overload on me. Walking into MS. Bailey’s class hearing that I had an essay due within a week. Me being lazy, and dragging around having other things on my mind, I decided to do my paper at the last minute. I couldn’t think of anything good to write being that I wanted the best grade possible.
I almost went to every class in the first half semester, but the midterm grade is not appropriate. I did not go to several last classes, but I studied and reviewed at home, that is also the reason that I can get a good grade in the final. I am so sorry for my bad grade
