I am aware that college will be challenging, but I will try my very best and I will not give up when times are tough. I know that I can't give into the pressure that may surround me. Knowing that I will have to take another eight years of schooling, I have high expectations that the college I attend to, will prepare me for my greatly acknowledged career and
Starting college as a Freshman is exciting; it is also unnerving. The comfort of everything I know is going to disappear and it will be time to grow up and face reality. However, reality isn’t doomed to be negative if I prepare for my future and
THINKING OF GOING BACK TO SCHOOL? Graduating from high school can be a really exciting milestone in life. Senior year is very aggravating because students are trying to pass classes to get their diploma. After graduation everyone always asks, “Where are you going to go next?” College? , University? , Work.?
My Christmas break started off really relaxed and not really doing much and for the most part, just little things preparing for the big day when Christmas actually comes. We have to clean house because my grandma comes over and my mom thinks that everything has to be
Gary Colombo, Robert Cullen, and Bonnie Lisle in their book “Rereading America” feel that commencing college is a very disturbing experience. So many things we have to deal while starting college, but the major challenges are expanded difficulty levels and higher expectation which we are not familiar over the years of high school. In order to solve this issue, we have to remodel ourselves by taking up the challenge and rethink about our strength and flaws. To succeed in college we need to be mentally strong and dedicated towards our goal.
What is the point, many people ask? In C.S. Lewis’ book called The Weight of Glory a chapter called “Learning in War-Time” helps shed light on what Lewis thinks about purpose. Even though World War two is in the past many people still ask this question. Education is a very
As I stepped out of the airport, followed by my family, I was unprepared for the snowfall and icy pavement that is so commonplace in January in Michigan. If I had thought enough about it, I would have worn winter boots on the plane and maybe brought my puffy white coat to block the wind. Instead, I stood shivering in brand new, pink ballet-flat shoes, while snowflakes filled my eyelashes.
College is a chance to be free and is a bridge between the real world and school. I’m an adult and expected to behave as such; I make my own choices where I have to decide what is important to me. I have an opportunity to learn how the world works, to explore the limitless possibilities and a chance to admire how vast knowledge can be. College will change my life in the way that I can develop life skills outside academics, to be fully
What did I do over winter break? I did so many fun things these past two weeks. I went to the mall with my friend, then he came over to my house, and he gave me a Christmas present.
As a student, after fall break, the one thing on my mind is winter break. For me, winter break is full of family, holiday parties, and happiness. It is a great time to relax and catch up on sleep, hang out with friends and family, and celebrate Christmas and the New Year. Going into winter break I look forward to family traditions and the happy feeling of the holidays.
During winter break, I didn't do a lot of things although I did spend my time wisely enough to do the things that I was planned to do during the break. Most of the time that I have was for family, and some extra time for games. Since my older brother came back one week before my final, I did have a lot of times having fun with him and my parent. My older brother did stayed with me the whole break, and he left on Saturday to go back to UCLA, which was two days before I came back to school. I think that my break was great, and I didn't do a lot of things, but I think that I did achieve all of my goals for the winter break. My best part of the break was when me and my family walking down the street of San Francisco, and during that trip I got
Student Success Although college is challenging, I am going to be successful by listening to advice from experts, by utilizing some effective strategies and tools, and by setting goals for myself, and taking advantage of the benefits of a college education.
This winter break my family and I went to visit my Aunt and Uncle empty nesters. The twelve hour drive included passing through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and then Georgia. The drive is always miserable but since technology is a life saver so the ride isnt miserable.I spent most of the holiday break with my boy Hudson Gregg. I spent a lot of time with him because he’s my brother separated at birth. He’s about as tall as me, weighs about fifty pounds lighter than me, a similar hairstyle as me, and a lighter skin tone. Also Hudson some pretty sexy teeth, so we practically the same person overal he a really awesome person to talk to. Hudson probably the best listener in the entire world. He doesn't doze off or anything he also has
First day of College Hearing so many good things and bad things about college I didn’t know what to expect and look forward to. That change my junior year knowing different college come every year I didn’t really pay it any mind what college I wanted to go to until ODU,
Sitting in class for the first time, it was half of what I expected. I expected to sit by people I didn’t know, learn about old things in new lights, and writing a lot of papers. What I didn’t expect was me hating college. I am not as creative as some teaches would like, but that isn’t my personality, and I dint want it to be either. I fully expected college to try and morph me into a perfect little student that I knew I wasn’t. College so far to me hasn’t been fun and I will treat it like Wal-Mart. When I say that, I mean that I will get in and get out as fast as possible. If I pick up stuff along the way then alright, but if I don’t, then it won’t kill me.
