When I finished the book, I couldn’t decide if I liked the book for telling a completely new type of story, or resenting it because of how close this book is to our present society. When I read, Peter Edgerly’s Firchow’s, “The End of Utopia: A Study of Aldous Huxley 's “Brave New World,” I knew exactly how I felt. Firchow starts off his critique by addressing the inconsistency of the characters. He mentions how Bernard Marx goes from a
At the same time i feel as if i 'm in a fight within myself to become more. And to stop holding on to the past. Paulo freire says, within “the word” we find two dimensions, reflection and action, in such radical interaction that if one is sacrificed even in part the other immediately suffers. Looking back at this time in my life i was acting but i wasn 't thinking about how my actions was affecting my friend and her views of me and our relationship. However i don 't believe she gets how this affected me as well.
They are constantly motivated to learn, unlike a fixed mindset student's that from previous experience gives up easily if they don't understand. It wouldn't matter if there learning process is social or individual because first sign of struggle, a fixed mindset student would give up .I considered myself a fixed mindset student in middle school because it seemed that even when I would try hard to understand the subjects it would never show during my assessments. After the many red pen marks and lengthy teacher feedback, I started to shut down and wasn't willing to
Failure is a process that leads to success. I believe that if you don’t face failure in life you will never have the drive, experience learning or the motivation inside you to succeed. It always gives you a chance to improve on the things you have done wrong .It is more of a second opportunity rather than a defeat The failures in life always teach us a lesson if we care to face it, analyse it and ensure not to repeat it in future. Math has always been one of my favourite subjects but as I entered grade 11, my grades in math started dropping drastically, I was very disappointed. I was trying hard to achieve the marks which I used to get with ease.
I foolishly did not start the project until the exact night before it was due. It was not until the next day I witnessed how ill prepared procrastinating could make me. Consequently, I realized that procrastination hurt me more when I received a B as my grade for the project. Waiting until the final minute to complete any work is always unacceptable if what is wanted is a satisfactory grade, and I have worked every time to try and prevent this from happening again. Altogether, I had high and low moments in my English II class.
I felt like I was never good enough for them. I had always thought no matter how much hard work I was putting in, it would never be appreciated. Even when I got straight A's on my report card. remember being so excited to bring it home and share with everyone all the endurance was worth it. They looked at it and said "oh well that 95 would be better" but I thought to myself how it could be better I did my best.
I also went through this trial to start my journey to the path of wisdom. Recently I changed my school and joined the new school in middle of the school year where I had already missed a quarter. I felt bad about the fact that a political conflict between two countries affected my schooling. However, I stayed strong and even tried to catch up with what I missed. It wasn’t easy for me to study what I missed because the British and the American curriculum are like the two poles of the magnet: they are different and the way of teaching are also different.
I consider myself that maybe I just got way too close to the wrong friends at the time. Don’t get me wrong, I think you should have friends, just make sure to pick the right ones you want to stay with you. Because once you leave high school and go on to college, no one is obligated to stay in touch with anyone, and no one is obligated to stay in touch with you. The fact that you may not keep in touch with your high school friends is horrible it may consume you for a while, but eventually it will go away when you realize that you’re not obligated to stay in touch with anyone as well. Don’t be shocked if the people you thought you’d be close by end of being strangers.
I was hesitated to do anything because I used to think the more I can do the more I had to do. I learnt in school just because I had to learn, no objectives to achieve, no favorite hobbies to do. After graduating from high school, I would go to a university then I would study hard and get a good job. That’s all. But every changed when I went to Ho Chi Minh City to study, it didn’t turn out as I intended.
It took until college for me to understand that the paper didn’t need somewhat irrelevant information for strength, but that it just needed more relevant information to get the full idea across. The only “taboo” things that I personally had to change was my grammar and word choice because I tend to say something while talking and write it down and it makes no sense when I re-read the paper. I also don’t think that I have ever learned how to create an outline properly for a
