My new mantra for life became “Train harder and smarter.” My new mindset allowed me to achieve long-term success while not compromising my health and encouraging self-destructive behavior. The perfectionism and diligence I had developed after years of training translated into my schoolwork. My hard work and attention to detail allowed me to maintain high marks throughout high school; however, it made me obsess over results by putting too much pressure on myself and getting frustrated when my grades were short of my expectations. As a result, I found an efficient way to structure my studying so I could get good grades while enjoying the process of learning and not burning myself out. Figure skating taught me how to recover from failures in my everyday life by not letting them define me and accept that there are no shortcuts to success.
I sometimes catch myself and make the good out of those memories and laugh it off. All lessons in this story mean so much to me, how I want to do better at school, and just life.To sum up, pushing through hard times, never giving up, and overcoming mistakes in life are lessons in the “ ELectric Boogaloo”. Pushing through obstacles can be hard, but once you get through it you feel accomplished. Giving up is just an excuse to be lazy, working until you are finished makes you never give up. Regretting what you did won’t make you any happier, overcoming them will make a world of difference.
I want to improve the CPS systems especially, because of work overload a lot of children are suffering. Eventually, I would like to open my own agency that will not only empower and/or encourage children to be there better self but will also secure them a future in life. An agency that is truly going to bring in positive and great results and would not consist of burnouts/work overload. Experience as a Student In undergraduate school, there were a lot of good moments, as well as struggling moments. There were times that I wanted to quit, but that was not
Mr. Salsada reminds me of a great quote by Alexandra K. Trenfor, “the best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see”. Mr. Salsada guaranteed that if I try to learn with no pressure of tests or homework, but for the actual information and understanding of things, I would actually learn and retain the information and my grades would improve. And surely it
The reason why I am academically successful in high school comes down to my work ethic. I personally believe that as long as a student works hard in high school, they can get good grades. I have friends who do not work as hard as they could and it reflects in their grades. Not to say that they have bad grades because they do not, but, if they put more effort into school they could have significantly higher GPA 's. However, work ethic, while important, is not they only necessary trait to be successful in college.
That really popped out to me and caught me eye. Independence really concerns me and that's one of the major traits I was looking for on high schools. Your school lets me work independent and that will help me through high school to work alone on some assignments because as I said before I can accomplish more working
Later on in the class I learned how to make it more interesting and eye catching. As you can see in my Comparative Analysis Essay it has gotten much better. The purpose I my Self-Inventory Essay sounded like this “I 'm good at figuring out the purpose of the writing prompt and using sources but I am not good at structuring and having sentence cohesion” but my Comparative Analysis Essay sounded much better “Something as simple as a parent’s language or financial situation is enough to impact the rest of their kids’ life”, it was more descriptive and smooth. It sounds like something people would want to
My plan for academic success is to pass all my classes with a C average. Another plan for academic success that I have is to choose classes that best fit my understandings and personality. Also I would like to get my license as a senior and have a job. Another academic plan for success is to have friends, friends are important to success because if I have no friends I’ll have no one to talk to while I’m working on school work. As well as the fact that I’m horrible at all my english classes, it might be a good idea to get those improved.
I earn my good grades without sacrificing other important aspects of my life by planning ahead, collaborating, and using efficient study methods. Notably, the most important step one can take in achieving good grades at the end of the school year is preparation. Planning ahead sets one up for future success. Most students that do well in school have busy lives, so one cannot just fully rely on memory to get everything done. I personally like to use an online planner where I write down all of my tasks and due dates to assure everything gets done on time.
My Educational Journey Today I would consider myself an average student. On occasion I tend to slack off but what student doesn’t. At the end of the day, I always try my hardest to be the best possible student I can be but, life isn’t perfect everyone has setbacks but we have to work through it. Don’t take obstacles as a negative switch them into a positive use them as motivation to keep going, Ralph Marston states “you turn a negative into a positive, you gain twice. You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force”.
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
Professors are rewarded for research” (Deresiewicz 64). This pact impacts student standards of learning, not in a sense that they are learning, but the loss in passion for what they learn, is lost. Attending an elite schools allows students to really do whatever they want or find their vocation, “it means the thing you’re called to do” (Deresiewicz 90). This idea comes from
The slackers that want to show up, cheat, and get a degree are pretty happy as a whole. however, there are those few students that i mentioned earlier in the scenario above that actually came to school to learn something. Those students are diligently trying and putting in effort. As the cheaters and active seeking students are put in the classroom, the cheater will probably do better in most incidences. That is an immediate effect the cheater has towards the student.
I still have to try my very best because you miss all the shots you don’t take. Of course just because community colleges aren’t funded more than they should be, they still have great programs to help students to be more successful. In the article Daquan was part of the ASAP program which gave him an advisor for his time in school that would help him and motivate him. Massasoit also has great programs to help student like us but again it is up to us the students whether or not to be
The first event was a consistent thing which was teachers correcting my essays . Every time I would receive an essay or an assignment I would always have an error with using the words " their and there" and using the right conjunction words. The problem that I had was when I was younger I wasn 't taught how to use those words. For an example instead of using the word your correctly I would use it "You 're a pretty cool person." When in reality you 're supposed to use it with the word "you 're."
