He does not care for the wealth that he has built up as it is just a tool for him to get Daisy. The way that he is greedy is how much he wants Daisy. He cannot simply settle for having Daisy, he need her to say that she never even loved Tom, much like greediness in money means you want more and once you get it you want even more. Nick, unlike Tom and Daisy, is not born into wealth but he aspires to have it. He attaches himself with other, more wealthy to him to get a taste of what wealth brings.

Personal Learning Experience it is often said that some lessons you will never learn from, in my case I had to have a personal learning experience. The lessons I had to learn was speaking up or people would walk all over me. Speaking up in different situations isn’t always easy. The second lesson was you cant give your heart to everybody because they might just misuse it. The third thing with my personal experience is you can’t be friends with everybody especially if God didn’t send them your way.

We all make mistakes, and most of the time we learn from them. From my Preliminary Writing Assignment to my Paper One, I have made numerous improvements in my writing but also many mistakes. Coming into College Writing One, I did not have papers to write to improve my skills in my upcoming years in college. Within the two papers I have written, I have expanded my word selection for more detailed paper, reduced fragments, and reorganized my thesis method for a better outcome. I came into this class thinking it was going to be just like high school.
Hannah. Asking around my peer group helped little, but asking Mr. Hannah and staying after school would’ve been the best option. When in a class, we can’t always ask all the questions we have about our assignment because we’re confused since there’s more students that also need help. Therefore, staying after school or during lunch to ask those questions with the teacher can certainly help. Even if staying in a class or the library, just to complete the homework because we know we’ll get distracted at home or even just to complete it to get it out of the way to have more time to complete other assignments.
Whether it was playing pre-recorded audio to identify chords or writing my own progressions there was always something to do to prepare for the upcoming AP. The impact of “playing catch-up” after a virtually useless semester was still evident in my score, but that aspect hardly mattered. At the end of the year, even though many students had higher averages than me, I was the one who received the student of the year award for Music Theory. I am still in shock that my teacher decided chose me, yet I in a sense understand his decision. As I progressed through high school I have cared less and less about my GPA (though paradoxically my grades and number of AP classes rose in tandem) because I found that learning for the sake of learning is the actual reason I wake up at 6:00 and come to school.
The books that high school students read during class do not serve the correct purpose to the students. Students should read more complicated books. “ Great novels can help us master the all-too-rare skills of tolerating- of being able to hold in mind- ambiguity and contradiction” (Prose). Prose basically says that if the books that high school students read were more complicated, they would consider being more open minded to different concepts and interpret the author’s words more closely. In the article, “Superman and Me,” Sherman J. Alexie Jr., a writer that graduated from Washington State University, wrote, “ I loved those books, but I also knew that love had only one purpose.
What it means to have self-awareness is to know about yourself. You know about some of your strengths and weaknesses, your motives, feelings, and desires. I feel like this is one of my best skills because I know what areas that I need improvement on and I work hard to improve upon them. Whether it may be practicing it on a daily basis or asking some companions for help.
I need to seek help from supervisor for training or education session to improve my skills and knowledge. It is necessary to identify own limitations, weakness. Self evaluation, help to determine whether the skills currently I have are sufficient or whether they need to be improved. The benefits of encouraging and accepting feedback is to help me improve my work learn from my mistakes and to help me feel more confident in the work that I am doing.
Carol Dweck describes fixed mind-set as a student believing their successes and failures reflect how smart they are. While growth mind-set describes a student looking at their successes and failures as an opportunity to learn new abilities and skills. Carol Dweck means fixed mind-set does not look at the effort a student puts in to an assignment, but only the grade they receive. Growth mind-set does focus on the effort a student puts into an assignment. Student’s either have fixed or growth mind-set and this can significantly help or hurt their self esteem.
In an excerpt that follows Nick’s description of Gatsby’s funeral in Chapter 9, Fitzgerald introduces a passage that epitomizes one of the central themes of The Great Gatsby. One can usually refer to the “Middle West” as the source of morality, purity, and truth. When the Dutch sailors first saw New York, they looked upon the abundance of new land and envisioned a “new beginning.” The East, in particular, New York is where the “dream” began. In the early 1800s, the “westward movement” initiated millions of Americans moving to western lands from the east.
