I never do a great drop on assignments when I do them at the last minute because I am rushed and don 't take my time. Procrastinating also causes a lot of stress as well. I need to discipline myself to delay gratification and get my work done before everything else so that I do a good job on my assignments, and so I 'm not rushed and stressed out because I 'm trying to get it all done at the last minute. Staying focused and attentive in class, I have trouble staying focused and attentive in class. I need to take in what he has to say so that I understand how to do the work.
I plan to take my high school ability, use them in college to become successful in my career and live the life I dream of. In high school, I plan to be as successful as possible to make college easier. My first goal is one of the most difficult, but one of the most rewarding, being having a 4.0 GPA for a quarter. I have always came close to having a 4.0, but I always am off by one grade. Another goal of mine is to take college classes in school and to be proficient in the classes I take.
Everyone says that it’s so hard, or so much work, but if you stay on task and pay attention in class it’s not that bad. I was one person to struggle in middle school grade wise, but since I was told that high school would be so much harder, I’ve paid a lot more attention in class and done all my work. Another thing I would tell the current eight graders, is that you don’t need friends to get through high school. It’s understandable if you want to have friends so you’re not lonely all the way through high school, but you don’t need them and its better if you don’t have them so it’s easier to pay attention in classes and get more work done
Now don’t get me wrong, I did have a good high school experience; however this isn’t about the good times I had. I want to tell you a story about something else. A real life lesson that I learned in school, something truly beneficial to my future. My senior year of high school taught me many things, however nothing compared to what I learned when I hit rock bottom that year. My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before.
It was those accomplishments that got me scholarship money and acceptance into some pretty good schools across the country. I wasn’t able to attend the colleges of my choices due to my parents financial situation at the time. You can only imagine how disappointed I was. I had become so accustomed to being that “smart girl” that was going to do well in life. I wanted to keep going, and I hated taking breaks.
The adversity that I have faced in my life is not something I look down upon. My challenges have pushed me to be the best person I can be and are the root of my success. High school has been an amazing, while also difficult, time for me. It seems like just yesterday I was walking in the doors for my first day of freshman year, unsure what to expect from the new environment. The opportunities that high school offer inspired me to take action and to become involved.
This will also have a major contribution to individuality, as many students take the same classes and usually don’t share similar interests in that class. Having diverse schedules would ultimately boost the amount of days students attend school because of classes they find interesting as well as specific to
The goals that I have made for myself throughout the rest of the semester are to utilize my time better as well as to study for my tests and taking care of my priorities first hand. Throughout the past, it was common for me to blow off anything that was a priority or seen as an inconvenience to myself. However, I quickly learned that this is not how the ‘real world’ works and is completely unacceptable. The most beneficial component of PADR for me is the responsibility the course forces you to learn as well as
I am not prepared for the work that I am going to get when I attend college but I am prepared in a different way one that most people ever even think about. One of the reasons that I believe that I have not been prepared for college is that there is a lack of challenges in the work that is given to me. I transfered to San Jacinto Christen Academy after my freshman year of high school. When I got to San Jacinto Christen Academy I was being taught things that I had learned in previous years, this has not changed during my three years at San Jacinto Christen Academy. In algebra I have been teaching other students how to do simple problems because they can not relate to how my teacher teaches.
Problematic Habits By Kevin Chen Even though I am a good student, I still have quite a few problematic habits in our daily lives. I found that my problematic habit is procrastination. I am a person who is very likely to be distracted by something else such as noises, attractive websites or phones, etc. I also found that as soon as I’ve distracted by something, I will lose the willingness of doing my current work and I couldn’t concentrate on the work I’m currently doing. So I always wait until the last minute to doing my homework and my homework quality is always very low and lead to bad grades.
