In my time here at Sublette Middle School, I have never perceived more about myself or my peers. I have gained massive amounts of intelligence, and stress, through my experience. But, I believe that all of the stress and anxiety was worth it, because it has contributed to my perspective on education. Education gives you a motive to get a good job, and not to rely on your parents or loved ones for support. My ordeal in middle school has made me assess myself as a person, and my technique of executing my duties as a student. I have learned that I have a very bad habit of procrastinating. In addition to my atrocious habits, it would be accurate to assume that I am an anxious person with ADHD, who, with self-control, can do my best work. It was

Time and time again I've found myself declaring education as the central pillar of my growth and development, that of which has been consistent throughout my life and educational career. From the age of 8 I've attributed school and learning as a way to escape the outside world, both willingly, and as an involuntary coping mechanism; school was a refuge, a safe place where I could build healthy relationships and escape my worries. I felt valued by my teachers, and I was given opportunities to contribute to a community, and for the first time felt autonomous- and that I could control my future.
Consistency and dedication. Two qualities that saved me from a significant drop in my academics in my sophomore year. I was doing just fine at Cajon High School, my grades were not as good as I wanted them to be, but they were still acceptable. Overall I was very delighted to be there. However, this all changed when my parents told me that we were moving from San Bernardino to Hesperia, California and I would be transferring high schools.
As a Richland Collegiate High School student, I am always attacked by stressors in my academic life. The stress provoked by school-related objects often bled into my home and social life. It created an unhealthy environment where I felt weighed down by the stress. Due to the stress, I often lost my appetite and started sleeping less. My mother worried that I was depressed or that I was developing an eating disorder, but I just did not know how to pick myself up and just get things done. I lacked motivation, self-control, and a healthy balance of work and relaxation. Throughout the course, I have been picking up on some of the strategies I can use to help alleviate my stress and subsequently improve other aspects of my life.
Prior to my formal diagnosis of ADHD, I had tremendous difficulty performing well academically. I was fine through the early grades in grammar school, and eventually hit rock bottom during my first year of junior high school. What was frustrating was the fact that I wanted to perform well academically a notion that was reinforced plenty of time by my parents, especially from my father but I would leave certain classes unsure about what material was covered and what expectations the teachers had for the students regarding homework assignments. And I could not figure out why.
Every morning I wake up searching my bed for my phone. Flipping sheets and pillows until my phone appears. I lay back in bed and check my Facebook, Snapchat and Reddit. Telling myself that i'll get out of bed in fifteen minutes but I get absorbed into my phone and that fifteens minutes turn into thirty minutes. I start to do the rest of chemistry homework but in five minutes I lose my concentration and I reach for my phone without thinking. I end up doing my homework last minute before class. I always tell myself that I got to do my homework right after school. But that never happens because the same thing that always happens in the morning, Its a endless cycle. While I was typing up this essay, I thought of batman and went to Netflix and watched Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Five hours wasted that i could've used for homework. Some people self diagnose themselves with ADHD and blame their attention span and willingness to learn on ADHD. I blame it on the internet and ourselves.
With the daily activities happening in their life, they are anxious to keep up. For some, even a simple task of getting prepared to attend class is a challenge. The anxiety is accelerated by the workload of daily assignments, projects that have to be submitted on time and finally the kid have to bring materials to school. After school, the teenager is exhausted and once they get home, there is little time to do homework and study. Students who lack proper organization and time management may become overwhelmed and fall
In this manner, I can infer that ADHD has an unfavorable effect on the scholarly execution and learning in school matured kids. Be that as it may, these kids can at present be fruitful however early location and appropriate treatment are critical to helping the youngster understand their maximum capacity. Bolster from guardians and educators will likewise decidedly influence youngsters with ADHD in their scholarly
1. One of the self-defeating behavior patterns I have is procrastinating. I know that many students suffer from this behavior pattern and struggle with it, but in my case, I consider it a serious problem that has influenced my academic work. Because of procrastinating, I sometimes have to work fast (and thus imperfectly) at the last minute and work under stress. I may even not be able to finish my work in time because of not starting to do it earlier.
I have always considered myself to be someone who is bright, talented, and a poor judge of my own qualities. According to my father, a man who I admire greatly, I am mistaken about at least two of the above-mentioned attributes. In reality, I frequently push my best efforts for the night before an assignment’s final due date, and I always make sure to have a few razor-sharp excuses hidden up my sleeves at any given moment. I am opening this essay like this intending to have my esteemed reader(s) know that I am not someone who wants to sell a façade to you. Despite those struggles that I admittedly possess, in all legitimacy, God has been helping me work through my propensity for procrastination and a general attitude of academic coasting.
When I was a kid, school for me was waking up early in the morning. I also have to study a lot in school, then after school I have to do homework. I remember my first day at school. My mom and dad, both were so happy and prepared but I was so nervous and cheerless. I didn’t like to wake up early in the morning for school , but as time flew by I started loving school which made me wake up with energy instead of tiredness. I began to enjoy the school as I made new friends and I got to know how it is like when you meet people out of your neighborhood. With my friends I had lunch together and study together. I started to understand what the purpose of the education system. Based on what I understood I think the purpose of education is really aimed at helping students get to the point where they can learn to be on their own. In this journey of education I had a lot of positive and few negative experiences,but the negative experiences also helped me growing. Positive experiences are my teachers helping me improve, and I improved more when I moved to the United States.
As a student, I have always struggled in school and never paid much attention in my classes. I never had very much motivation to go to school. When I was at school, I never listened to what the teachers were teaching. I never really paid attention and did my work. Instead I spent my time in class doodling on my papers. Throughout all of my schooling, I cannot remember a single year where I have missed less than twenty days of school due to me
School, to me and among many peers of my age, is not a distant term. I have spent one-third of my life time sitting in classrooms, every week since I was seven years old. After spending this much time in school, many things and experiences that happened there have left their mark in my memory. Some are small incidences while some have had a great impact on me. However, regardless the degree of significance, things that happened all contributed to shape the person that I am now.
Throughout my education, I had so many challenges I had to overcome. Dealing with school, personal life, and sports. Dealing with all of these problems has shaped me up as a person. I know now how to work for what I want, nothing is handed to me in life. That is something everyone needs to know, and now I know.
The education we receive today holds the power to shape the individuals we will be in the future. Not only does our education aid our choices throughout school, but also the choices we make in our personal lives like where we choose to work and how we portray ourselves to society. Personally, I have enjoyed my educational experience. I have enjoyed learning new concepts and interacting with new people. Of course, there are obstacles along the way. However, these obstacles have given me the opportunity to realize my strengths and weaknesses and learn to improve in both areas. As a student, I hold onto my perseverance, seek guidance from influential figures in my life, and embrace my challenges to which all contribute to my hope to become the finest version of myself.
Every now and then I think about my education from kindergarten through senior year of high school and I wonder where I would be and who I would be without it. I have realized that those thirteen years of my life were essential to my development as an individual, for they have shaped me into the person I am today.
