I love sports. One of my goals is to start my tenth grade year and I know without working my butt off everyday in there I'm not gonna be reaching my goals and am gonna be a benchwarmer all year but, like I've been saying if I do what I need to the best I can do them I might start who knows. Another one of my goals is to squat more than 200 pounds before next season. I know your thinking what's this kids problem what so great about squatting. Well to me it's not about squatting that much it's about being up there with the top kids who lift a lot and about getting stronger everyday.
Strength has been a topic of debate and research in the field of Positive Psychology since many years. Some believe that strength is a ‘capacity for feeling, thinking, and behaving in a way that allows optimal functioning in pursuit of valued out comes’ (Linley and Harrington, 2007). Others suggest that our strengths are ‘the psychological ingredients – processes and mechanisms- that define morally valued virtues’ (Peterson and Seligman, 2004). The exact definition of strength varies from person to person but to put it easily, strength is the natural talent of a person in which he/she excels. Life pushes you to struggle and keep fighting in order to move on.
Likewise, I see myself as busy because I don 't have time for any free time no more. When I get back from school I tend to eat and do my homework right away because I have to go to basketball practice at 5:30 limiting my time to do my homework in. Once I get back from practice at 8:30 I have to help my sister with her homework and put her to read. After I have done that I have to go to sleep. This shows that I am a busy person because I have no time to waste while I 'm doing anything because then it affects everything else that I 'm doing.
I am a very good listener. So because I like to listen, whenever I talk to someone or anyone I would always listen carefully to them. This is what makes me a very observant person. Everybody has weaknesses, but it is up to us whether we want to keep those weaknesses or overcome it. I mentioned that my weaknesses is overthinking, perfectionist and arrogant.
Attending class is important so I don't miss any assignments and get behind. Being in class is important because its proven that students are more likely to succeed when they have an good attendance. I do much better in school when I don't miss a lot of days. It is very easy to get behind in class when I don't show up. I do miss a lot of school because of sickness but I am going to try and go even when I don't feel good.
If students already don't do the work or get that education that they should be going to school for they might just drop out, there's no point to being there in the first place. A lot of students disregard grades and homework because the homework gets too overwhelming and they just give up. Students get multiple hours of homework everyday and it becomes to much for a teen and that can cause other effects that interfere with sleeping, stress levels can get to high and can cause depression, and even make a kid give up on school. Therefor too much homework is not physically, mentally, or emotionally healthy for
Every people have their own characteristics, no matter from nature or nurture. For me, I think I have a quite specific character which is always late, always late in meetings, always late in hand in home work…I am quite abnormal than the common people, for most people, being on time is very easy, but for me I can’t. I don’t know why, even though I tried to set the alarm clock be more early, I still get late. In my secondary school life, I always late for school, and even tried to get late for the interviews and mock exams. I have no ideas why I always late.
I have never imagined the work load that I would have had face in university. I had no time management skills at all to help me in my work, and this was the case of many of my classmates. On the contrary, my school friends who joined the same university, did not have much pressure on them, and that was not because they were smart, it because they always did their work on time. Homework could take a lot of time, which is true, but the time spent doing it can be managed. Time management is the key to success; it gives you the skill to plan ahead, making your goals achievable.
I hate to admit, but I am such a procrastinator. I leave things to the last minute which sucks because then I can’t seem to just relax. I especially procrastinate when it comes to school work. If a teacher gives me homework, I would wait until the morning of the next day to do it . The work is sometimes not even done correctly and I would still hand it in.
Another thing I had problems with was time management, I would procrastinate a lot or complain about how I do not have time to study, or get my work done. This semester, after attending a time management class I realized I had 40 hours a week of free time, and I used that time poorly, having fun or being lazy.They then told me how I should be managing my time and trying to get all of my work done before playing, and since I was poor at managing time it showed in my work and performance that I done things the 11th hour. My study habits, were very poor. I used to believe that I did not need to go to class or stay the whole class period, I also barely read the textbook at all, and since I had poor time management skills I procrastinated and waited until the very last minute to study. This resulted in poor grades, and more stress and agony.
