Ap Psychology Goals Paper As a highschool student we come up with many goals that we want to achieve each year. My three main goals for my junior year are to get good grades and maintain a good G.P.A. to stay active and play sports, and to start looking for colleges to apply for. Usually, it is hard to achieve all your own personal goals, especially if it involves working extra hard or doing other tedious activities. One major goal I have this year, being a junior is to get good grades and maintain a good G.P.A. I have set this as one of my goals because junior year is the last full year where grades really matter when deciding the fate of your future. To do this, I have limited the time I spend socializing on my phone while studying …show more content…
Unlike last year, I am determined to go above and beyond to get the grades I want. This includes more time studying for tests, asking questions when needed, doing the required work to prepare for the test, and retaking tests I passed to get a higher grade. An obstacle I may encounter when trying to reach my goal is struggling in a specific or challenging subject. This obstacle may cause anxiety. If anxiety occurs or I have trouble in a certain subject, I will work even harder in that subject to obtain the knowledge needed to get the grade I want. In order to fulfill all that is needed to maintain good grades I must also take care of my body. Taking care of my body will also result in good grades. This includes staying active, exercising, maintaining healthy eating habits, having a sleep schedule and avoiding …show more content…
Being active consists of a strong, healthy, body. I have set this as another one of my goals because being active and playing sports does not just improve your health, but also improves your brain power. This allows you to do a lot better in school, which could also improve your grades. Another reason I chose being active as one of my goals is because I have lupus and having lupus requires staying fit, being healthy, and regularly exercising to decrease chances of having a flare up. To do this, I intend to play soccer this year and continuously stay active on days I am not practicing or playing. Although I do occasionally exercise, I know I could be a lot more fit. Unlike the past years, I am determined to play soccer this year and maintain a healthy diet and body. An obstacle that may interfere with my goal is an injury. Injuries can trigger depression and cause discouragement, sadness and anger. If this occurs I will keep a positive mindset and and accept the situation. I will stay involved with friends and teammates to prevent myself from feeling isolated. I will also regularly work out alternative muscle groups that will allow me to still be engaged and active so I can achieve my

My goal is to receive only honor roll grades and participating in additional clubs and activities. When I achieve this goal by putting my mind to it, I can even see myself becoming one of the highest ranked students in my class. I am very proud of myself this semester and can say for myself that I have improved but there are some things I wish I did better. I should of worked just a little harder at getting my work done every night and instead of constantly getting distracted by the things around me, I should of focused only on study for my
In this highschool what I wish to accomplish is to finish what I started and learn some more languages because I'm actually interested in world culture. I also wish to improve my skills in algebra because I genuinely fail at that subject. Something else I've been looking forward to was to find a new hobby maybe join some extra curricular after school activites or somthing (School events, student organizations etc). But I'm still always willing to learn new things as usual, I don't find having an education, boring, it's actually something to look forward to. Something else I'd love to accomplish is to figure out what my future carrer would be because even though I had nearly all my life to think about it I literally don't know what I want to be, I think that going to highschool would help me decide my carrer choices.
Without a doubt my favorite class this semester was AP Psychology. As someone who has been mesmerized by the brain, its functions, and human behavior, this class kept me constantly engaged and interested. Walking into class, I knew that every day I would learn something new. This class allowed me to gain a better understanding of people around me, and taught me patience when dealing with numerous different types of people. Also, this class has provided me with a basic understanding of why people do different things, and allowed me to grow and become more open to new things. I went into the class with lots of questions, and have found each of them answered in more depth than I thought about them originally. Prior to taking psychology, I knew
Second, I have various goals I want to accomplish in life. One of those goals is graduating with highest honors and I am already working toward this goal by signing up for the maximum amount of honors classes (three) in my ninth grade year. In addition, I wish to be in the top five percentile of my graduating class and possibly obtain the position of valedictorian. Getting an academic and/or
The first weeks of freshman year have gone by in a breeze; for the most part, it didn’t even feel like I was really going to school. Now I am all settled in and it is time to think about what I want the rest of the year to look like. Setting goals has been a strategy that has worked for me when needing to get things done; it helps me the most when I make multiple little goals to reach that lead up to a big goal, for I find this less overwhelming than having a specific, humongous, intimidating goal that is staring at me while I procrastinate. When setting my goals for reading, writing, general school, and habits, I will be sure to keep this in mind.
Everyone has goals they want to achieve. Everyone also knows it takes hard work and time to achieve them. I have two goals; I have a personal goal and academic goal. My personal goal is to get a scholarship for college. My academic goal is to get at least a 3.5 G.P.A as my accumulative G.P.A. If I get my G.P.A goal it may lead me to get more scholarships.
One of my personal goals is to graduate from both high school and college. I wanna graduate and get my diploma and degree. If I graduate both schools it will help me get a good job and be able to afford the house I want and get my own car and pay my own bills. Another goal is to gain access to a good college if I get into a good college,I can make more money and get a really good job that probably pays a lot. My career is to become a neurologist or a police officer. I would wanna become a neurologist because I really adore babies. If I graduate high school it would make me believe that I can do better in college. It would make me believe that anything is possible like getting my diploma as if it was a piece of
I have a lot of goals for my life, but since I’m in high school right now, so my priority goal should be my high school goal. My high school goal is very important, my college goals or even my life goals depend on it. My high school goal is to get a GPA of 4.5 or above in senior year.
This year, I want to stay a lot more focused than I did the previous year. Last year, I would slack a little and it showed in my grades. Therefore, I am not going to let that happen this year and will stay focused each grading period. These changes are for the better because I want to maintain my rank at the top of my class with a corresponding high grade-point-average. Also, keeping my grades up can help me gain acceptance into a prestigious college in the future.
Some more concrete goals I have, include finding a good research opportunity for me to work for over the summer, apply and get into a good graduate school, find and apply for scholarships to help pay for my undergraduate and graduate degrees, and get good grades. These goals are while fairly large all have fairly concrete steps and ways to meet them.
Graduating from high school has always been the ultimate goal for me. But of course after graduation, much more lies ahead, like college and choosing a career, but graduation comes before all of these things and so it seemed the most attainable/stable goal to reach. In middle school, my increase in motivation to study did me well, as I started to get placed into higher level English.
This school year I have listed a set of goals. A goal is something we want enough that we make an effort to reach it. This year my goals will help me grow little by little. My first goal is to finish homework. My second goal is to come to school early every day. Last but not least one of my personal goals is to turn of my electronics at home and read at least for 2 hours.
This year I want to work on myself physically, and mentally. I want to become a better student and a better friend. I want to improve myself for next year and the years to come. I want to set 3 goals this year.Next year, I hope to stay on task, get better grades and be a better friend.
The reason this is my academic goal is because if my grades are the absolute best, they would make my GPA that much better which not only would be great for getting into college but would also make it easier to get a scholarship that would help with tuition. My plan is to study for every test, get all of my work done on time, and finally, not to procrastinate when I have a period of time to do my work. Also, my career goal is to get a career in my intended major,civil engineering. That is my goal, to have a job in my field right out of college for something that I can be very successful at and can prosper
As for personal goals I am always trying to relieve stress. I tend to be actively involved on campus with CRU, CAB, Nonprofit Leadership Student Association, Kappa Phi and so on. This can at times be so overwhelming with school, especially since I
