Some days I think I have no home work and won't go on to grade portal to double check. Then I will go to school and realize we had homework or test. Sometimes I would even check, but I would wait to check the morning it is due and try to finish it before 1st period. This is one of my biggest problems. Also I'm not the only person who does this.
In High School most teachers will assign you to turn in your homework late if you give them an excuse such as "I forgot it at home" or "It is in my locker". In contrast, in College if you give your professor one of these excuses, they will say "Too bad" and you do not have another opportunity. In high school, the time of your classes are picked out for you, one class is right after the other. In college, you can pick the days and the times you want to take each class, this way it’s easier for you to establish a work schedule that won’t interfere with school. If you would rather work in the morning and take classes in the evening, it is possible.
I strongly believe that you have to do your homework to get good grades. Most of the time you do your work in class and then you get home and already forgotten so it is a good review. I also think that if you review what you did in class for like ten minutes it will help you remember the information when the time comes to take a test. Now a days, teenagers think that studying is a waste of time but it really is not it helps you remember a lot and everytime you study even if its only for a few minutes it really benefits you. Lastly, do not use your phone in class.
He said: “It is my job to give you enough time to finish your essay, but it is your job to turn it in on time”. And Jenny ended up with an “F” on her essay. It is unbelievable that Jenny did not put her essay into her folder after she finished it and she also let her brother played with her work. If this situation keeps happening, I do not think she be able to pass the class. Making-up reasons without any preparation can be the easiest way to make your excuses become worse.
I actually want to my best this year in college to get straight A’s and learn as much as I can. So I guess my worst college fear won’t really be a problem at all. The other fear I am worried about is that I will take all these college classes and still have no idea what I want do as a career. I am a pretty indecisive person so I am really going to have to love something to decide to do it for most of my life. Maybe I will have the opposite problem and I will like a whole bunch of things and won’t be able to decide between them.
Needless to say, that was away cut into my study time. Even when I was at home and class, I was very distracted with the home situation and was unable to focus on my studies. I understand now that I should have communicated with my professors (instead of avoiding them), or even taken a some leave of absence. I thought I could handle all of these burdens, and I tried my best, but I was wrong. I love Swinburne University, and it would mean so much to me to graduate with a degree from this University, which would make me the first person in my family to complete a University degree.
Today, my greatest challenge remains the same. While now I can read a book for hours, it's school work I lack concentration in. If given an assignment, I either have to complete it quickly before I get bored, or it remains undone until the last minute, when a teacher talks in class, if the information is something I already know, I tend to zone out into my own little world, and when given a task that is too hard, I think about it but if I can't come up with an answer quickly I just give up and move on to something else. First, if given an assignment, I either have to complete it quickly before I get bored, or it remains undone until the last minute. I have a hard time focusing on one thing because I like to do other things first.
Thinking about the future is serious and important thing. We must think about it deliberately, but we have to find early what to be and I have to strive to attain the goal. Finally, I think I have to better myself. When I was a high school student, I studied only for examinations and I had no time to read a lot of books about a variety of things. As the result, I have pity knowledge now and I will surely feel humiliated in the future.
I finally felt like a normal child once I knew how to read and could keep up with the class. Reading will most likely be the thing that has had a huge impact on my everyday life. In the past when I was little I didn’t think reading was very important for my life, and I also didn’t like to read. In second grade my family and I discovered that I have mild dyslexia. It was very hard to deal with in school because I got confused very easily in anything that had to do with reading or writing.
I was really sad that day. However, I always tried to learn English and speak better. I never gave up. For the next two years, passing the ESL (English Second Language) exam and proving my English skills to myself had been my dream. In my class and staying in the ESL class only became harder and harder for me to bear.
