These quotes is relevant to me that in every fault or failure I make I don’t have to be defensive about it but accept these mistakes and to use them as stepping stone to improve myself and change for the better. “Well done is better than well said.” and “Speak little, do much.” [The meaning of these words is fairly easy to understand, but they serve as an excellent reminder to us. The things that we DO for others are so much more important than the things we SAY to others. In other words: “Actions Speak Louder Than Words.” So simple… but so very important to the relationships we are trying to build every day. These quotations are very relevant to me, especially because I am a very expressive or kind of a talkative person.
UCOR 101 Thinking and Writing made me come to the realization that writing papers for college is completely different than writing for high school level classes. Throughout high school the effort I put forth was not near the amount of effort that is required for college classes. I would write a paper the night before it was due and hand it in and get a good grade without any negative comments from my teachers. Unfortunately I carried this bad habit over into college. My UCOR 101 teacher scrutinized the first paper that I wrote and he could tell it was written the night before and even referred to it as a high school paper.
Asking around for help cleared that up quickly. While spending a few hours filling out my Student aid and a few other college documents, I started to look in to what else I could apply for.

Seligman found that making a deliberate attempt to focus on some of the good things in life can have a major positive impact on levels of
With confidence not only does that outside look better but people seem to start having a more positive outlook in life. “People have a natural tendency to trust you more when you seem confident. To the subconscious mind confidence equals competence.” Confidence is very important for people to have, so they can have a rewarding path in life, insecurities only bring hostility, self-loathing and limits into our own lifes. “Insecurity has many effects in a person's life.

We try to fit everything into one day and then work into the night to accomplish the impossible. According to “How Sleep Debt Hurts College Students”, by June J. Pilcher and Amy S. Walters, “College students are not aware of the extent to which sleep deprivation impairs their ability to complete cognitive tasks…”. Even if we get only a few hours of sleep, we college students use a variety of methods to try and beat Mr. Sandman. From coffee to energy drinks to pinching ourselves, there are many ways we try and cram as much as possible into a 24-hour period. One question I have come across in my years as a student isn’t the how we say awake, but the why we stay awake.
