Mostly, non-stop assignments with an overwhelmingly short amount of time to get the done. Senior year has really pushed me to limits. I have had to make numerous sacrifices, but the outcome has definitely been worth it. Senior year is full of “lasts”. The last first day of school, the last first high school basketball game, and many
As for myself, this was one of the many challenges that I 've faced as a student leader. I think the biggest difference was that, previously, we were always given a gap of time before the event was to occur. This time, we had less than a week. To be the leader of a group under these types of conditions was extremely tiring. Yet, I understood that I had a task at hand, and I needed to be on my A1 game the entire time.
When I started attending East Mountain I experienced an immense amount of reading assignments compared to a regular class, but it didn’t stop me from doing my best. Although it was the most work I had done throughout my years of high school, the complexity of the class only challenged me to work harder and to read in between the lines. My intentions for next year are to work twice as hard and improve my reading, critical thinking, oral, and analytical skills in English 1102.
At the time last summer I was working two jobs and also balancing my project hours on top of it all, so I had to be up as early as possible to get an hour to two hours of volunteering done then head over to one of my shifts. This was all very exhausting and at times my work schedule didn 't work with the days I was supposed to be at the daycare and so it became me having to miss some days to go work. Contacting Lynn sometimes was a bit difficult because of her busy schedule, so that definitely added to my worry. With time I knew these challenges would lead me to become a more responsible young woman, with the capability of balancing my responsibilities. Eventually, I was able to find a healthy balance between the three as my project
For the first time in months I will also have more than one day during weekend off a month. This I think will really help improve my well-being on a whole. I will not feel the amount of emotional turmoil I have been feeling because of the amount of work I was doing with a great lack of
Throughout the first week of EOF I’ve learned about many things, but most importantly be grateful for the opportunity getting a higher education beyond a high school degree, that majority of people like me can 't afford. Transition from high school into college is a huge difference because you are now in your own, and even though there are people on campus to help you, you have to take responsibility for your own self. One might be tough but being away from home is hard, since mom is not around to cook those delicious meals, do your laundry, remind you to do your work, take care of you when sick, as well as other things. I’ve learned that transition from high school into a college setting takes time, but it is all about getting used to a new
Each of these opportunities has consisted of both good and bad experiences; however, I have been able to learn and grow from all of these experiences. I have had the opportunity to meet countless new people over this past month. I had anticipated this opportunity, but I did not realize how important it was going to be for me. Before I came to NDSU, I was an extremely shy individual, but I have recently become more outgoing. I never expected to come to college and suddenly be a highly social individual.
During my junior high school I have a test in sports, which I am poor at that needs to be at a certain grade for me to graduate, for that reason with determination I train in these sports. I memorize every move and rhythm, I asked for my friends help and train with them, I keep doing workouts for the next week, I jogged in my neighborhoods to increase my stamina, and stayed up late at night so I am able to be decent at sports. Eventually the day came and I put in my hard work, and with the support and cheer of my friends I am able to gain a decent grade for me to
I have to try hard when it comes to learning school material, but I make it work as shown by achieving Dean 's List recognition for every semester taken at URI. I choose URI because they provide an ample supply of extracurricular activities along with challenging course work. As a member of the Honors program I am provided with individualized courses made for upper level students for a variety of different topics. The courses go more in depth into the material and it’s a smaller group, so the teachers are more involved. I have used the honors program to broaden my knowledge of subjects outside of the field of Science.
It was my first time working in a medical environment and I did not know what to expect. It took me a few months to acclimate to that environment and feel confident in the work I was doing. Not only was I was expected to do more as an MSW II, I was also pushed out of my comfort zone more often than in any other work setting. I believe that the most helpful part of this program is making sure that each intern has a field supervisor that is accessible if needed. Another helpful part was having at least one other intern in both of my field placements.
I am constantly practicing to improve my skill that requires an excessive amount of effort because I have bad days just as everyone else, and many times I’m just plain worn out. Staying fully devoted to this game isn’t an easy task. I have to give up several weekends with my friends and family so that I may travel to tournaments, sometimes several hours away. Other times I
The first improvement Chi Omega has made in my life is academic. To begin with, I can remember that having four hours of study hall a week was overwhelming with everything else I had to do. Over time though I became grateful for the requirement that I actually had to sit down and focus for a little while and not multitask on several different projects. I found that I was much more organized because I was setting time aside to plan while putting away all other distractions.
Getting accustomed to the fast pace of the university and of the city can be tiring but Yeonmi has done this several times. As a recent college freshman I have foregone an adjustment period. I have gotten to know my way around campus by using maps and asking others for directions. Transitioning from a slow paced life to a fast paced, is exciting and scary just as it was for Yeonmi Park who had it tougher. My struggle of fitting in is similar to Yeonmi who did her best to blend in with the locals in the countries where she was a refugee.
I am dedicated, persistent, trustworthy, blunt, and honest as can be. I not only attend high school, but attend Cowley County Community College (CCCC). I attend Cowley to further my knowledge in automotive so that I can be prepared for a job. I am fascinated by the automotive industry and hope to concentrate on diesel technology as well as performance automotive. Working on cars is my biggest hobby, both money and time wise.
