Learning Frameworks itself has offered myself and many others a jumping off point for the looming workload of college. I feel more prepared and motivated than ever to excel in my courses.

My new mantra for life became “Train harder and smarter.” My new mindset allowed me to achieve long-term success while not compromising my health and encouraging self-destructive behavior. The perfectionism and diligence I had developed after years of training translated into my schoolwork. My hard work and attention to detail allowed me to maintain high marks throughout high school; however, it made me obsess over results by putting too much pressure on myself and getting frustrated when my grades were short of my expectations. As a result, I found an efficient way to structure my studying so I could get good grades while enjoying the process of learning and not burning myself out.
A good education can change anyone, a good teacher can change everything. This quote connects to ‘The Metaphor” by Budge Wilson and The Ron Clark Story by Rain Haines, because most of the students'' in these stories got the privilege of a good education but it’s the teachers that really made a difference in their lives. Good teachers that have a variety of learning techniques, are going to have a better outcome in their classrooms, resulting in more successful, lifelong learners. Teachers that have the ability to adapt to the students learning skills can completely change their grades.
The way I felt about my city and my surroundings had a strong correlation with the way I felt about myself. Prior to this realization, my dreams and aspirations for the future were minimal. I performed well throughout elementary school, and I was moved up a grade because my reading and math skills were advanced. However, when I began attending middle school, the new atmosphere combined with all of the new awareness I gained as I started transitioning from a child to an adolescent ended up in me lowering the expectations I had for myself. Once I regained my optimism and saw that Oakland is not what people say it is, I began seeing life in an optimistic way as

I uphold strong characteristics that allow me to be a worthy student.
As a result of the little knowledge I had, I happened to flunk second grade. From this, I learned a very valuable lesson in that the choices or actions you take will impact the things you do in the future. Therefore, it encouraged me to do better and try my best. With regards to this, the future in which I believe can be easily endured, turned into an obstacle that I must fight for. Above all, I now realize that this new future is a dark tunnel I must walk through before the light can appear on the other
Psychosocial theory is a list of theories developed by Erickson to describe the stages of development. In my personal life, I feel that each stage of my life was affected by the first, and most important stage: Trust vs. Mistrust. According to Erikson, this is the most crucial stage that will affect all other stages of development. Children learn the basics of relying on parental guidence for feeding, consistency and physical contact. I feel that the stage that is most appropriate for where I am in my life right now is identity vs. Role confusion; and this is so because of my adoption.
Time management: Time management is a very crucial component if you are willing to have a productive lifestyle. To be honest, I have always had issues with managing my time efficiently. This problem had become a huge obstacle once I got into college. Thus, attending a lecture that focuses on time management helped me a lot with this problem by introducing me to different aspects related to time management: planning, SMART goals, and important/urgent matrix. Learning to make a specific plan for my daily tasks and make a to-do list to make my day as productive as possible is something very helpful which was advised to me by the instructor of this lecture Mr. Irfan.
One goal is to keep and organize all of my homework assignments, so I can use them to study for quizzes and tests. I will also start taking notes every time I have reading for a class, so I will be more prepared for my tests. Taking notes while reading a textbook allows me to really see if I understand the material. The reason being I will have to understand the material in order to write the concepts in my own words. Also, I will be able to easily review my notes whenever I want.
Coming to Indiana Tech wasn’t my first choice till I came to visit for track. The law building really changed my decision because I really want to become a defense attorney. Also Indiana Tech class size is small so it made me want to come more. I like when my professors can communicate with me and know who I am in class. My decision was final.

When you were back in your dorm writing papers and doing assignments you would always use your syllabus to help you along the way. This helped you understand what was expected from you and helped you achieve you’re “A” in the class. The syllabus mainly helped you understand how not to plagiarize and you used that for every assignment, just to be safe. Brent, I am very happy you got this “A” in the class.
Throughout my years I have achieved multiple academic awards and accolades. To get to to a point in my education where I was able to receive such great awards took serious dedication not only on my part but all the teachers as well. Learning new material in various topics does not come easy to me. I started off certain classes like geometry or spanish with no clue what I was doing and even a few bad grades in the beginning. Specifically, I failed my first geometry test with a 54 in ninth grade and that did not sit well with me and from then on Mrs. Brown took the time out her own schedule and stayed after to
