There are some students who either are incoming high school students or are returning which can be a big fear for them the most because they don’t know what to expect from the campus vibe or even what their teacher can be like. Cox explains on how some students even have a fear of applying for college because of the paperwork they have to fill out and how much requirements they ask for. Also they
It was scary, suffocating, and nauseating. At the time, I didn’t know this was an anxiety attack. My mind drew a blank at attempting to categorize what happened at school. I tried WebMD-ing what had happened that day, but after receiving a plethora of
I would not have focused on trying to read my poem and having it connect with the feelings and emotions of everyone in the room. I believe that seeing the faces of boredom and disinterest in my classmates made me stress about my performance even more. If I went back in time to 2006, standing in the middle of class, I would have mentally emerged in
My entire senior year of high school, an eerie fog of anxiety lingered around myself because of the approaching new part of my life that I couldn’t quite anticipate as well as other events in my life. This chapter in my life that I almost dreaded because of the uncertainty, the path that was always envisioned for me, ironically, the only certain option for myself–attending college. I had my fears before I even applied to a school because I knew myself, I knew I wasn’t as independent as I let myself out to be, and I knew the chance of getting rejected by my first choice school was likely, a school where my friends were attending, where almost complete independence wouldn’t swallow me whole. As you might guess from my transfer application, the likely indeed happened. And so, the most difficult and independent
I get this feeling of impending doom forming under my feet. Having these feelings leads me to have a really difficult time in high school. I almost gave up, but I realized that I must finish what I start. I was going through my day casually, but out of the blue, I was called to the councilors room during 4th period. Luckily we were not
Have you ever felt uncomfortable, nervous, and confused ? These are all the things I felt moving to a new school. I had no idea if I would gain friends or if anyone would like me. Maybe if I had a tour around the new school before my first day I would have not been so disorientated. Going from a one story school to a two story school was hard, having to look down every five seconds to make sure I was on the right hall, or if I was suppose to be upstairs or downstairs.
Students who have been bullied have a fear of coming to school because they feel unsafe, the environment can also affect the students by giving fear and in a disrespectful way, hampering the ability of a student to learn. Students may feel insecure and tend not to like to go to school very well. Some individuals lose confidence and self-esteem and usually end up being lonely most of the time. The individual may constantly think about the bully which may affect the individual’s concentration and also individuals would always think and repeat the scene when he or she was bullied. The effects of bullying on the bully and the victim can be wide reaching, impacting schoolwork.
The new environment will have new properties and the student needs to adapt to the new places, faces, and routines. Some students share increased levels of depression and absent-mindedness within the first few weeks of the first term. “Students who are passive and mildly depressed prior to leaving home have been found to be those most likely to show raised levels of homesickness following the move to college” (Fisher, 1994). 2.3.7 Homesickness There are many first-year students who experience being homesick. Some of these reasons can be moving to a new environment, not knowing anyone, missing home, and missing family and friends.
High school has impacted my life in so many ways. High School taught me so many things, from personal relationships to creating a relationship with my education. As a freshman, I made a huge amount of mistakes and I regret doing foolish things, but I’ve realized, I was only maturing into the young adult I am today. Freshman year, I was out of focus and I was only trying to find myself. I would also prioritize other things and ignore my parent’s advice, where they would tell me to focus in school and give it my full attention.
Good day, my name is Mena Hasan. I am a freshman in High School, and during my many years of schooling I have realized a very huge problem with today 's students, as I had done more research about this topic I had come to the conclusion that not only school students have this issue that everyone has this issue. This is something that we should all stop doing, but we just keep delaying it. . .
These were just extra obstacles that were put in my way for reason to benefit at all, considering I was told that junior year was already the hardest year for any high schooler anyway. I was furious yet frightened to see the thing that I value and work for, to be turned against me and everyone else. Across many schools within Jeffco, students all together performed a walk out during school to protest this issue to point. But this walk out was only the beginning of the Jeffco Recall that many teachers, parents, and students supported and carried out throughout the year. And while we did have to compensate for their poor decisionmaking that year, the recall was eventually set forth and finalized at the beginning of my senior year.
She struggled with acceptance from peers and the social life she cultivated at Murchison had a huge impact on her mental well-being, resulting in the need for therapy from Mandy Young, an LPC who specializes in anxiety and social skills issues of children and adolescents who have difficulty fitting in or having success at school, and later on psychiatric help resulting in depression, sleep, and anxiety medication. Throughout her 7th grade year, she suffered conflict from her social group, especially from peer
It was a total mess, I was having unacceptable grades, difficulties in keeping up with the class and so on... After struggling for semesters, I finally realized that I wasn 't meant to be an engineer. So instead of chasing a dream that wasn 't meant to be and at the same time spending so much time and my parent 's money, I decided
I have attended Laguna Blanca School since the beginning of high school. I faced many challenges that I had not been prepared for, such as managing my time with schoolwork and sports. Freshmen year I struggled to find the time to finish my work, so I had to work in between classes or immediately after class to keep up with other classes. After the semester, I was frustrated and wanted to leave Laguna Blanca to attend a public school, where the workload and academics might be less challenging; however, I decided to stay at Laguna to better prepare myself for college. Being a student at Laguna Blanca has given me many responsibilities, but there is always assistance available.
Journal School Started this week. I have been asking myself if I made the right decision coming back to VC. My first quarter attending VC, I felt like I had stepped back into high school. I witnessed the disrespect the students showed toward some of the teachers. I could not believe my eyes or my ears when I witnessed some of the the students arguing and being disrespectful with teachers during class.
