I had a caring family and had a great attitude towards life, nothing was going to get in the way of anything I wanted out of life and I thought nothing would ever change that attitude I had. I promised myself to never smoke, do drugs, drink, or harm myself or other people. I was very confident that I would live the life that my friends and family demanded of me. Well, going into my teenage years, that all changed. Before I knew it I was doing everything I said I would never do.
I should add that I will still have the support of my husband and best friend, so I won 't be alone in the process. For Me, Being An Only Child Is Pretty Great I guess one thing I don 't have is the ability to have someone back me up about childhood memories. It 's my word against my parent 's word now, and they always win out because I don 't feel like arguing with them - even though I 'm pretty sure I 'm
My dad and I had always gotten along better, never disagreed with each other or got in screaming matches, until this dreaded senior year. I couldn’t even get along with my sweet, affectionate father because I developed such a bad attitude. When I say I disobeyed their rules, I mean their rules didn’t even apply to me. I completely disregarded them and did the opposite of what they told me to do. They set a curfew as to when I should come home at night in which I was an hour or more late.
It was hard not too because most of all my friends definition on "we are going to have a great time" was that we were going to do everything I set myself not to do anymore. It was hard being friends with them and not doing those things but little by little It began to be easier. Here I am in college now still doing good in school and I havent even done any of those things since the day I promised myself that I wouldnt. I had many benefits from changing the negative person I use to be. I do not have to lie about why I smell weird to my parents.
My college experience provoked a metamorphosis over the course of the last two years that has made a sizable difference in the way I handle tasks. I am no longer the person that shows up unprepared, unorganized with only the will to succeed. I now show up ready to go, fully organized with an iron willed drive to be the best. While college has incited my goal driven attributes, it has also inspired me to considerably improve my organization and time management skills.
On the side of this job, I have always had a fun job to make a little extra money by work... ... middle of paper ... ...hool and work and life in general. I did not strive to do my best in high school and especially my dual enrollment classes. I was not ever thinking about my future and started not coming to classes. Once I accepted God in my life Junior Summer, all that changed. I realized I was on a negative path and God helped me turn my life around.
For the first three grueling months, I thought it would never be over because I hated speaking in front of people. It would be days where I would bust out in sweats and then there are days where the only time I was opening my mouth was to vomit, then it will be days where I could get through a whole speech she gave me to recite but I would always look down at my feet. I felt that I would never be able to face my fear but Mrs. Johnson believe in me and kept working with me because she not only wanted to see me graduate but she knew that I was going to college and in college, you will have to do those heart wrenching oral presentation pretty much every year and she wanted me to
Reflection 1: Studying Psychology at QUT Reporting: Studying Psychology at QUT these past months has completely shattered any expectorations I had of University level study. I came into the year thinking that I was going to enjoy all of my subjects and find it easy to balance work, studying, and my social life, however, I have found nothing about entering University comparable to how I expected it. Though, despite this, I have periodically changed and altered my goals in order to have achievable outcomes through my study. The only comforting thought is that it is similar to my sentiment during my final year of high school. Relating: Tertiary study has always been a goal for me and I was wholly determined to succeed no matter the cost.
I eventually started putting my academic priorities over my friends when they came back to visit; as cold as it may sound, I had to get the feeling of work off my chest in order to be truly relaxed. As I have heavily implied, I wasn’t a great student in high school. Seeing grades get passed back I was always prepared for either a failing or barely passing grade, and I was usually right. This led to me becoming paranoid and very pessimistic. I would begin to doubt my aca... ... middle of paper ... ...dn’t accomplish much of anything in high school I finally woke up by realizing I couldn’t mess up on my last chance at redemption.
Being motivated to not give up and completing my goals has always been a part of me. My first two years of college were very though, I was not prepared or ready to start a big chapter in my life. I had my first taste of freedom and did not prioritize. My priorities shift gradually everything was disorganized including myself. Managing school, work, and having freedom was a drastic change.
