Eventually though the year I couldn’t keep up with the work and I no longer understood what was being taught to me. I struggled with keeping up and trying to stay with the class. By the end of the year I had no missing assignments but since I had trouble taking tests I passed with something in the C range. I took Geometry during my Sophomore year and Algebra II &
Not necessarily for college applications, but moreover on the experience that I will gain by being a member. In fact, the opportunities such as giving back to the school and the community will surely hold more value than it would in my college applications. In addition, if I do get accepted, I will surely not be the first to write that I was an NHS member, so would it really make much of a difference? I believe I will be a great contribution for the National Honor Society. Growing up in an unfortunate family, I have learned to take my education seriously and apply for organizations to serve as an inspiration.
I continued most of those activities throughout the rest of high school. Some things changed, like I joined National Honors Society, cross country, and the fall musical but was unable to continue with basketball (yet still managed) and math team because I lost interest. I loved being the student who was super involved, taking all the challenging classes and being at the top of the class. My senior year, however, was lower than where I set myself up my first few years. After I tore my ACL in May of my junior year, I noticed that the rehabilitation process was going to be a long road that required a lot of time and effort to get back to full strength.
“What you seek is seeking you” (Rumi). I feel as if I didn’t choose to become an optometrist so much as the inspiration was seeking me. Two years ago I panicked every time someone asked me what I was doing after graduation. I hated the time commitment that came with medical school. I knew my nieces and nephews would be graduated from high school by the time I got done, and that my grandmother almost surely wouldn 't be with us.
Imagine that you have been trying something hard for so long and then finally just quit. I have always had ok grades here at Lowell Middle School. this year I started to go in the lower range of grades like D’s to C’s.But other years at lowell schools were not even close to years like this.And getting bad grades created a wildfire in eigth grade for me.This is a big problem because this could affect test and exam scores. I have never been excited about bad grades because most of my friends get good grades.This year I have become the kid that the teacher talks to after class because of them having a failing grade. My family does not get excited about me getting bad grades.My mom has been trying to find me a tutor but has not been very successful in finding her task.I say to my parents that i am trying my best to find and get help from teachers and fellow students but I think to myself that i have been lying becasue i have not been trying my hardest.
My senior year has not started out too great either I have still having the bad side pain despite being over the mono. After once again many doctors visits we have found that I suffer from irritable bowel syndrome which explains the amount of illness I’ve had all throughout high school and now we know even though there is no cure there is medicine I can take to make the pain manageable. Now I am really hopeful that the hard work was not for nothing and my poor attendance and grades from that school year will not hold me back from accomplishing my goals of getting accepted to your college and becoming a history teacher so I can help students like myself push through their hard
I missed days for doctors appointments and therapy. And there went my grades again. I tried so hard to stay caught up but struggled with learning the lessons on my own. By the end of my sophomore year I had missed twelve days and had to leave early for
Also, as Brandy Clay stated about himself, I too believe that I "...was blessed with certain gifts and talents and God gave them to me to be the best person I can be..." Generally speaking, I am prepared to work hard because letting myself down is not an option. Plus, I intend to take advantage of the opportunity to further my education. I am certain that all the hard work will pay off, and that God will get me through the hardships that may
I got back on my feet and started striving to become someone I could be proud of again. I decided I wasn’t going to sit there and wait to feel better again. I was going to make myself better, because I am the one thing in life that I can control. I can ensure that my life will be just what I want it to be. I will be someone who does something with my
Madisen Hansen Period A3 There are twenty six letters in the alphabet, and never had I thought that five letters could be arranged in such a painful way. APUSH was a class that I had originally taken because my parents simply did not think I could do it. So I took the hardest class in the school. But I didn’t learn just history. I got more out of that class than I have ever gotten out of my high school career.
