After reading “On Becoming a Better Student” by Donna Farhi Schuster, I started to think about some of the idea she mentioned. I have always been a curious person. I have always wanted to learn more about what I was interested in, but that stopped in high school. Expressing interest in something in high school was not something I did often. I was so overwhelmed with busy work in school that I was exhausted by the time I had time to actually sit down and research something I was interested in.
As the semester comes to a close, it is always interesting to look back and reflect on the events and opportunities my English class has given me throughout my first semester as a whole. At the beginning of this semester it was evident that I was feeling uncomfortable due to the adjustment that I was going through as a student moving to college. It was very difficult expressing myself through my writing since I was nervous about good impressions and my good grade. While this class was one of the most difficult courses that I have taken this far, it has become quite evident to me that I have grown a substantial amount as a writer and as a person; Especially, when it came to explaining my ideas, writing academic essays, and making arguments.
Brian and Taylor discuss what they knew about being successful as student’s .The most importing thing was to me is learn yourself as much you can to be successful in your job. When you have a job in example they not going to show you how to do it if you do know, you need to teach yourself how to do it and forget it out, because the future is wildly unpredictable. The best way to improve your options is to continually learn as much as you can in fields that are complementary to your main interests. It would to say, don’t wait for doors to open. Open them yourself by being persistent and thinking strategically about your career.
There is a multitude of misconceptions about the ideal outstanding student. This outstanding student maintains a perfect attendance, has a cumulative GPA of a 4.0 or higher, actively participates in extracurricular activities, and is a generally well-rounded person. A student such as this is rare to find, sure there a plenty students out there such as this, but the majority of the student population does not fit into this category. Why is it then, that any student that falls short of this standard, is blatantly criticized and looked down upon? One of the main reasons that this ludicrous standard exists is do to the fact that many to do not consider the things that must be present for this student to be manifested.

As forthcoming juniors at South Pointe High School we find ourselves engulfed with nerve wracking questions for the year to come. How much out of class work will we receive and how much time will it take to complete the assignments?

It is very important for me to say I absolutely enjoy music and learning about their different roots and where they each originate from.

As time passed, I realized it was going to a little harder than I thought because many of the topics covered were completely new information for me. There were some of which I consider my favorite and others that weren’t so appealing. However, in the process of obtaining the best grade possible in this course there were several of the traditional values that are published by Alvernia University that helped me transform as a person and accepted the fact that failure is not an option, but it does help people realize their strengths and weakness and how to use that in a positive way to improve in becoming a more excellent student.
