My whole life I have always been a straight A student. I always thought that if I didn’t have an A, I was failing. The first semester, of my Sophomore year, I had Geometry. It was the hardest class I had ever taken. Like always, I tried my best, I did all of the homework, studied for all the tests, but the best grade I ever received was a B. I thought that my world was about to come crumbling down.
The most interesting class that I have taken would have to be my Developmental Psychology class. This class looked at all the different phases through human development. It was fascinating to see and understand the cognitive development every person goes through. It also looked at scenarios where a child was deprived of elements that are critical in their cognitive development. The course that I took began with the fetal development and continued until death. It also talked about how some may grieve the loss of loved ones and how to respond and help them get through those tough times.
I was right; the class was incredibly challenging. I had had a subpar general chemistry course in my sophomore year, so there were many basic concepts that I did not understand. I realized that I would have to work a lot harder in this class than
It’s pretty hard to write a summary of the class when you skipped a lot, and I know I have and ill own up to it. I feel like this class had a lot of information at the front half of the class that is very important for every student to know, the information about the library and how to write an annotative bib. I found those extremely helpful because I never knew how to search for professional articles and find them so easy. Other than that I honestly felt like the class didn’t really pertain to me, myself being an odd ball and looking at a career outside of my major and outside really any ESAT career type. Even if I were staying as a Physical Educator, this class is built around the ESAT major and there is nothing wrong with it but I find
Now even if you’re laughing, you should know that there are so many people out there like me. It’s the same as losing a football game at the finals or breaking your leg before a major dance performance. In that case so much energy has been put to achieve a goal and it is the same in this case. The reason this change from a 4.0 to a 3.9 affected me so much was a type of peer pressure and denial. Ever since I started school I have been labeled as someone who shouldn’t fail, and if I ever did people would judge me for it. My peers would say I always got As, but if I ever got a B they would revel in the fact that I made a mistake, and I started believing them. I started obsessing over my grade, pulling all nighters just to perfect a paper or stuff more information into my head for a test. Then I had a head injury and couldn’t learn or think as fast, which caused my 4.0 to slowly change to a 3.9. This had never happened to me before, I could never say I was a straight A student anymore. I grew obsessive over this and I was devastated. I knew that I was at a disadvantage with the head injury, and I didn’t let life go on like I should have. I didn’t understand at the time that this wasn’t a big deal, but now I accept this was just another change I had to overcome and that this wasn’t the end of the world. I will still persevere but a small mistake will not distress me ever
I thought this class was a very good class. In fact I wish that all classes were this simple. I felt like I was able to actually understand the course work. I feel as though this class as
Emily had meet Boo when she was trying to find the monster world. And she found the land of the dead, but it was nice to see a human. As she was used to seeing people someone that she knew. It was always nice to have a familiar face around. She could tell that Boo would be confused at first. As when she meet her she looked blue and dead. Now she was living with blonde hair. It was something that she really did miss. Now she had to learn how to fit it with the living. But at least she knew that she wasn’t going to scare Boo. As she already knew about Emily being dead.
I've already told you about our mission here at Birmingham Magazine to find the best gas station food in Alabama, and Wednesday night I set out on my first adventure.
Going into my sophomore year of high school at Northshore, I was not really worried about any hard classes and teachers because I was pretty used to high school by then. When the first day of sophomore year came around I was more excited to start school. It never occurred to me that I would have any struggles throughout the year. However, on the first day of school I received my class schedule and soon fell into a panic. I was placed into one of the hardest English classes with a really strict teacher, Mrs. Wahden. I was not strong in writing, reading, and comprehension so I immediately knew I would struggle all year in her class. Entering her class o the first day, I did not have an open mind. For that reason, after I left her class
The most challenging course for me might be HCA-460. One of the many resources GCU has it is the library and knowing is there is a breath taker because if there is a need to do research or any other activities I will have it at the tip of my fingers. Another resource will be the tutoring services in case we need an extra hand understanding our class.
I have learned that it really is important to look for the silver lining in everything, and to look at the life with the glass is half-full perspective. We keep a daily journal in this class, and I love that I am able to express my feelings. In each of my entries, even if a day seems like it has been the worst day ever, I always try to look at what positive can come out of the bad. Another important class that I have taken is motivation. In this class, we learn that enthusiasm towards achieving our personal goals is worth the immediate satisfaction we feel afterwards. It makes me want to set many goals and plan my ways to achieve
One of the major benefits I see to taking different courses is that in life, you are going to face different challenges. If I were to just take medical classes, it doesn’t mean that I will be a great medical student. I need to know the basic fundamentals on various subjects prior to entering my program. If I can’t properly write notes in a chart, do the correct math to administer medication, or understand the concept on
My classes started off very well and great and I was very happy for myself but that same happiness made me think that I can take a break off my grades and that is what dropped them in the first place. So now I am working on them to bring them back up and not let them drop again because I can afford another failing grade and that will not just disappoint me it will disappoint my parents and brothers. I am doing well in Biology,Algebra,Advisory...etc the point is that the two main classes I'm failing are Cultural Geography and English 9. Those have been one of the hardest classes in my middle and elementary years of school mostly English because it would always be confusing to me and I wouldn't understand it most of the time. In order for me
During my undergrad education, I have experienced minimal academic difficulties. There were six instances during my undergrad education where I received a grade of B-minus or less. The first instance was during my freshman year at Hillsborough Community College where I received an F grade for intermediate algebra. Despite all of my effort to earn a passing grade from the course, all my efforts were futile. The overall average of the class was a D and the professor was dismiss from the college following that semester. I made up the grade by retaking the class with a different professor and complete the course with a B. The next situation involves me receiving two B-minus for organic chemistry lecture. Those organic chemistry courses were rigorous
I have learned so much in this class to prepare me for a successful college experience. There were some topics that caught my attention more than others. Such as, time and stress management, University resources, and critical thinking.
