It was a diverse and strict school with many rules I had follow so I knew I had to make a big adjustment. It was challenging for me to come from a school with nothing but freedom and those I’m used to being around on a daily basis to an environment where they teach and students there learn and actually had an interest to want to. I tried to adjust their but I just couldn’t and found myself not attending school once again. I was disappointed in myself that I would easily lack when it comes to getting my education. Just when I thought about really giving up a close friend informed me about Job Corps and exactly what it is they do with young adults who are trying to obtain their diploma or to just advance their education.
I didn't want to hold a full conversation with anyone in my class unless they were the one to approach me. From this day, I still remember how lonely I felt and how badly I wanted to be accepted. I dreaded to go to recess because I wasn't sure what type of crowd I would “ fit in” with. As I walked in class, I saw everyone divided into various cliques and eventually I found myself every week trying to fit in with a different one. I tried my best to act like those kids in order to fit in, I changed so many things such as my attitude, my clothing, my hairstyles and how I spoke in the span of one year.
I used to believe that studying and working at the same would bring me professional experiences and substantial benefits for my future and careers. On the other hand, in real situation, since I have started working, I have realized that when the tasks are loaded I could not manage the time properly not just for my work but also my study. On account of these problems, I have no time to review my lesson which will then affect my grade in a negative way. For example, I supposed to review lessons for my upcoming exam which is approaching, yet I could not concentrate well due to the distraction of a project launching on the same date as the exam. This is the worst role conflict I have ever endured with; it brings not just tiring days but also pressure, less self-esteem and sleep
Overall Homework is just something we put on the list of things to do on the weekend, and leaves us stressing out if we will be able to have time to do everything we have to do on the weekends. It leaves us with barely any free time at all, and keeps us away from spending time with our families. Why should you care? Have you ever seen how long your child has stayed up or just been doing homework in general? You probably do not see it or recognize it but they will spend hours doing homework.
Throughout high school , I struggled with academic work . It wouldn't be that I didn't want to do the work ; it was just that it became more difficult for me to remember what I learned and put it to use . But for sports it was a different story , I could remember every single play and execute what I learned with ease . But that was high school now I'm in college and everything is ten times harder . Sometimes I wish the class room were as simple as me being on the field knowing what to do .
At first I started off taking 1 or 2 classes per semester, but outside interference had me gradually upping the classes. Between work, a lack of motivation due to not having any idea of what I wanted out of life carved out, and pressure from family, I found myself not prepared for these classes. This is what you will see as you look up and down my transcript and see W's and WF's. You will see the unachieved goals, the times I thought I was an angel, the times I dreamt of being perfect. At the time of writing this paper I am 23 years old.
The obstacles that would prevent me from acquiring success this semester is poor time-management, lack of studying, and misguided priorities. Since high school, I have always had the struggle of managing my time wisely. In some ways that has followed me straight to college which has never had a positive outcome. I added the pressure on myself with enlarging the amount
At that age, I had to be able to be around other kids every day, and if I was homeschooled, how could I do that? Being 10 years old, I argued with her logic anyway. Fifth grade was a hard year, I suffered a lot from anxiety and “bouts of sadness” which we later learned to be depression. Sometimes, I would just shut down when too overwhelmed and my eyes would glaze over. I’d just go silent.
Sadly, procrastination is one of my worst flaws and I put off studying until the day before the test. I knew I had to work fast and I still had to go to work. So I planned on studying on my break. I tried shuffling work with school work and it just was too complicated to balance the two. I would start going over the study guide and then I would have to help a customer.
The Obstacles I face in going to college If you have never been to college or your starting college after years of not going, it can be very difficult to start or continue to go. The most common obstacles that may be keeping me from achieving a degree, Family and work responsibilities, Social Fears and learning disability , Confidence Family and work are two of the biggest thing to deal while going to school. my time has to be managed to handle both of these I spend most of my time in the military away from family, I have a 2 year old grandson that I am raising, its difficult going to school and fined the time to spend with him. It can be very stress full to juggle family and school. At 51 years old, there tend to be some fear and pressure.
To many people this goal was mediocre, but to me, I knew it would take hours and hours of practice and hard work. My mother, who also fills the role of trainer, and I began to piece together how to make my goal reality. First, I had to ride much more often that I already did. Instead of riding three to four days a week, I needed to ride five to seven days a week. With school and other commitments prioritized above sports, I knew that running track would not be in the cards if I wanted to improve my riding.
The most heart wrenching experience that all military children have to go through is saying good bye to friends and leaving a place they called home for a short period of time. Some children have a tough time already adjusting to a new environment so moving to new place is even more challenging. Although military children have already become accustomed to always relocating, it becomes even harder to transition as they age. Young adolescents at this age will feel sad during this time because they will have to start over at a school and make new friends again. This adjustment isn’t as simple for teenagers especially when they don’t make any new friends.
There aren’t enough hours in the day to go to school, work, do homework, and study for every class. In my short experience of doing this I have found myself stressed out, sleep deprived, and not doing as well as I possibly could. If college is supposed to be the next step in our lives, why is it so difficult to handle? We should be able to concentrate more on our work. This is just another example of us being kept down.
Anxiety use to be something that l feared. It was like a disease that l felt l had no cure for, and would have to live with for the rest of my life. I constantly felt trapped and scared that at any moment, l would have a panic attack and spiral out of control. It was a scary idea to wake up to every morning, and to fall asleep to every night. My last two college years were not as enjoyable as l wanted it to be, because l kept letting my anxiety get in the way of my life.
