In my opinion, I am a good student with the willingness to learn. I have many strengths as a writer like formatting papers and have solid body paragraphs. I also have a few weakness like the length of my body paragraphs and my word choices when writing my conclusion. I still I have many things to work on to make my writing better, but the only way to get better is to practice.
I am Hoang Le Tri Cuong. I am a scholar who is studying at Saint Joseph's Institution (SJI).
When watching college athletes participating in their sports, does it ever cross one’s mind that the athletes getting paid? “The NCAA establishes rules and regulations for universities to follow and one of the most important rules is that student athletes should not receive any money with the exception of scholarships towards their tuition and housing” (Winn). In 1999, the Chronicle of Higher Education surveyed atheletes’ statistics on “graduation rates for scholarship college athletes in the NCAA’s top Division I.” Fifty-one percent of football players and 41 percent of male basketball players graduated in six years (Meggyesy). NCAA Chief Operating Officer Dan Boggan stated; “before the eligibility
Using some simple time management skills can give the student the ability to complete tasks without feeling overwhelmed. Insufficient communication between myself and the school also crippled my studies. Over this course, I’ve learned to excel as a student the importance of new time management skills. The transition although stressful is exciting and eye opening. It's a completely different experience versus the typical college classes I was involved in when I enrolled in traditional college after high school. I will admit I am disappointed in myself this course for falling behind, being side tracked I’m unsure how far behind I’ve become. There’s one thing this has taught me and that’s discipline with my schedule because I find it's easy to get
In this paper I plan to briefly review what happened during the counseling demonstration. Next, I will discuss two basic counseling skills that I believe I used well, and one that I struggled with. Finally, I will discuss the next steps I will take in order to improve my counseling skills.
This paper seemed very easy to me while I was writing it. After reading the response on the rough draft, I have realized that I need to spend more time proofreading and editing my papers. I thought I did very well on this paper but I was wrong. It seems like every time something seems very easy, I usually get a poor grade on it. After viewing the tips that were left on my paper I have found out that I need to work on many things. Some of these things include the length of my paragraphs, repetitive use of one specific word, adding more personal experiences into my writing, and organizing my thoughts effective enough to where they reach the page requirements of papers. I found these tips very helpful because it has been quite a while since I have written an actual paper. I appreciate that I have a teacher that will actually take their time on each and every paper and leave comments on how to improve that
The fall months can be a stressful, but rewarding time for me. Being a member of the dance team and marching band often takes up a majority of my time outside of school. Many days of the week, difficult homework assignments were a part of my daily workload; these nights often became tiring and stressful. At times, all these activities imparted a large amount of stress for me, and posed challenged me to be successfully in all activities. In order to succeed through this difficult period, my time management skills were necessary. I learned to prioritize different assignments and projects in order to complete them in a timely fashion by setting long and short term goals. Through my time management skills, I learned that all obstacles, big or small,

For me, being able to manage my time wisely is a must. Every week I have a schedule that I try to stay as close too as possible. The problem is most of the time something happens to throw me off schedule and I find myself playing catch up. If I didn’t have the schedule already in place then I would never get anything done. “ the first step toward more effective time management is to increase awareness of its value” (Lucco, 1994). Time management is a lot easier in my private life because my family understands what I am trying to accomplish. Everyday I start my assignments at 4:30 and finish at 7:30 with no distractions. They understand that if I work during the week we can play on the weekends.
PLF 4M1 is a class like no other, a class which will help you develop many important and useful skills necessary in order to become successful. Rather than being taught with lessons and notes, the class is taught with a hands on approach. Each task done within helps promote leadership, time management, team work, organization, and stepping out of comfort zones. The very first task was the Popsicle stick bridge where teams were competing to see whose bridge could hold the most weight before cracking. This specific task was just a small taste of what was to come. Students were given a time limit and a limited amount of supplies, which forced teams to work together in order to be most successful. Time management was important factor because if
For my art piece I did a recreation of the first image on the next page.This piece was by Iris Scott who is a world known finger painter. As you can tell this painting is of an older girl walking through rows of trees when the leaves are falling. I did this because I thought it was a really cute painting. My painting is a little girl walking through a path when the leaves are falling out of the trees. It was actually a really easy painting because I used a dotting type of technique. Since Iris Scott was a finger painter and I didn't want to get dirty, I got a fanned brush and dotted the painted where it was needed. I proportioned the little girl to the tree. I also used lots of color in this painting. I blended the orange, yellow and reds for
Self-reports or self-evaluations are a well-known method of data collection in many of the social and behavioural sciences (Halverson et al., 2005; Aday and Cornelius, 2006). Whereby overt behaviours can be measured by more objective measures, self-reports may be one insight we have into the internal state of a person's thoughts and feelings as they solicit personal information about individual experience that is mainly subjective in nature. However, to date, the literature does not include self-evaluations aimed at understanding readiness for interprofessional collaboration and as such, organizations have not been able to use such a tool to assess whether individuals are ready and what may need to be done in order to help achieve readiness.
Next is the use of color, or lack thereof. The colors in the background are very quiet and muted, mostly subdued blues and grays with hints of a deep red and brownish yellow peeking though. The colors used for the figure are browns and tans, almost as if the was painted with mud, like she is all-natural and from the earth. The range of colors would seem to have a cool tone if you were looking at them on a painter’s palette but the arrangement of color on the canvas gives the piece a warm feeling.
This is a digital art piece of Kavacy that I got from my tumblr. It’s a digital painting of Kaniki from the anime Tokyo Ghoul. I like this piece I particular because the different aspects of the show you can find just for noticing the small details. The hair was the first thing I noticed. The artist used thick slightly faded lines to define the over all shape of the hair. Then as he went along he began using thick solid strokes to fill in the hair in the back and thin solid strokes to show the individual strands of hair in the front. He did this to show that these strands held more dominance. I enjoy how the artist gave the whole picture that cold gritty and solemn feel. It makes the piece very alluring with the center being the primary focus
I am now approaching the conclusion of my college career and starting to adjust to work life. This is a period of self-reflection and an attempt to put everything I learned into perspective. During this period of my life, I have been constantly thinking and contemplating my future. I feel very anxious yet nervous during this time while I am adjusting to this new stage of my life. When I was in High school my life was very structured, because I could be very dependent on peoples help and I obviously still lived with my family. When I went to college, I had to break away from that feeling of dependency and start the adjusting to adulthood. In college there was more responsibility and I started to become more independent. This was a crucial step in my life but choosing a career is going to be an even bigger step. It is a bigger step because; I have to start structuring my career goals and family goal for the future. At this moment all I can think about is my career, and how I can I keep improving myself for work life.
