I felt so uncomfortable, with the faces of my fellow classmates looking at me. Actually stepping up and going against the conformity in my class was harder than what I had planned for it to be. Although I would do it again if necessary, it wasn’t the highlight of my day. People try their best to fit in, no one wants to be different. Sometimes despite the negative feelings we have about going against the crowd it is very much necessary.
Not everyone is a fan of writing, it’s true. Most of us may not have been born to be the next J. K. Rowling, but writing is still an essential skill to work and improve on while in high school. Strong written expression will help students do well in university or college or will help you find a career out of high school. Also, writing good writing skills in high school will help a student to get better grades to get into an excellent college or universities. High school teachers evaluate writing on five main points: vocabulary, spelling, punctuation, logic and the combination of ideas.
Moving into the real world (workforce) I will feel these same emotions once again during stressful and busy times, and people will need my empathy. Knowing this I will be able to be empathetic toward situations at hand, allowing myself and my peers to collaborate in a more operative manner. What really drives me to “my quality world” and a “life of success” are the multiple careers I dream of. Computer network engineering, audio engineering, ministering the gospel, and photography. I strive to make audio engineering and photography my hobbies, and keep Computer network engineering as my main goal when I’m done with college, with that being one of my goals I will be able to have a steady income and provide for myself.
Having dyslexia creates many challenges for me. I can't read very quickly, I can't simply skim through a passage, and being fluent in two languages doesn't make dyslexia any easier. Yet, ironically, I truly enjoy reading. I am a slow reader, but this way I can take in and appreciate all the details and emphasize a writer puts in his or her work.
I learned that any barrier you face there is always an option to overcome it and be successful. I can grow by working my hardest on my school work and never giving up, even when things get hard. I also learned that time management is a very great skill to obtain at this time in my life, because college courses take time, effort, and lots of patience. I must give myself time to prepare for class work and especially exams. Having a schedule for my school work and my personal life is the best choice to help me stay on track.
The research portion of my papers is an area that I am proud of. Looking over all of my papers, my progress can is easily detectable. Before this class, writing was foggy and hard for me; that can be easily seen in my early papers. However, I have somewhat grasped what it means to writing purposefully and academically. This class has also prepared me for what I assume will be my future profession, law.
Another improvement that needs to be made is my time management, because I have been late to school more than a few times. Furthermore, very rarely I can be very lazy and not do any work at home if I am in a bad mood, and that can cause me to hand up my homework late. The common trends that the teacher kept writing about me is that I generally put a lot of effort into my work, and also the fact that I have a good attitude. Some teachers also said that I am never afraid to ask for help in class.
I can really say without fear of contradiction that I learnt a lot during the research process and during the essay writing process. I gained several skills that I am sure will be very useful in future. I can prove that the skills I gained in essay writing will be very useful in future both n further studies and in my career as I am now very conversant with essay writing techniques. If for instance a future employer asks me to write an essay on how to improve customer relation in the company, I know the format that will make my work look professional. Gauging my work, that is, the research process, the analysis of the information I got and the essay, I can say that I was above average.
I am sure that I will have many of these goals and I am determined that I will have enough grit to finish them. Another thing that we talked about in Learn Strong was crucial conversations. When I think of crucial conversations I think about a crucial decision that needs to be made that can affect the lives of many. Personally I can’t think of a crucial conversation that I had this semester.
I find the video streams, PowerPoint slides, handouts and website reviews to be most helpful. I find the other resources just as valuable, but I selected these three as my top choices because I am a visual learner therefore the video streams help me out tremendously. I have taking completely online and hybrid classes before; however, those did not include the professor’s lecture online. I think what is brilliant about this course is that I can repeat a lecture at anytime. Being able to watch the video as many times as I need to have been a lifesaver.
Like doing this speech is scary for me because I don 't like talking in front of a lot people. But what do you think courage means? An example do something that you are scared of doing. I do it everyday at home, school etc. Courage can also be confessing of mistakes.
Another reason why is I will get the opportunity to serve my local community; doing more service work will help me to be better as a person. Being in NHS will help build who I am as student. I always want to improve and learn from my flaws. Being in the National Honor Society will not only help me academically but also as a better person to the
