In addition to that, I was subject to separation from < > college. Well, now a decision really had to be made; it was time for me to make a choice. My parents told me to think about other colleges and to think about other things to do instead of college, but I knew that < > was right for me. They often suggested that I go to community college for a semester or two and make sure that I was doing something that I wanted to do. I had attended the community college in my area during my last year in high school to take some extra courses, and I truly detested the place.
During the two week course, we’ve talked so much about the transitioning into college. All those mental preparations is to ensure students are able to handle college work, by focus on time management, class scheduling, and procrastination. Transitioning to college from high school it’s almost just like middle school to high school, more expectations from teachers, AP classes, and tier schedule. If something was not handled correctly, grades will start to drop, and when students’ grades drop it can lead to high level of stress; high level of stress lead to lower grade, and it will continue the ban wagon. To maintain grades high, students should schedule enough resting time, so when they are in class; they are able to pay attention.
People have argued for decades about whether or not colleges and universities should pay students who receive athletic scholarships, and unfortunately, this seems like a discussion that has no easy solution. On the one hand, student-athletes are working a very demanding full-time job that allows few opportunities to socialize and relax, while also going to school full-time. For this reason, some argue that a pay-the-player or a pay-for-play system is a logical and ethical decision that colleges and universities should employ. However, one must consider that most people do not go to colleges and universities hoping to earn a paycheck for their performance along with the added notoriety associated with being a player on one of their college’s or university’s athletic teams. For most people who attend colleges and universities, their desire is a simple one.
The students will force themselves to go against their biological sleep clock so they can get another assignment done. “We sleep less because we want to or must work more, study, socialize, or engage in other activities that take precedence over healthy sleep.”(Imaging Sleep and Sleep Disorders) College students prioritize school before sleep, because of the high amounts of homework required for them to do, but sadly this has a horrible effect on the student’s physical health and the health of their grade. Most college students now-a-days are paying a lot of money to be in school, or maybe I should say the parents of the students are paying a lot, but none the less there is some money going into college; the students have a lot of pressure from their parents to get good grades and make all this money for college go to some use. Another stressor is scholarships, most students with scholarships have to keep their grades up or else they will lose their scholarship. All the students focus on their GPA, is it high, is it low, is it going to get me places?
If you ask students if they think P.E. should be required in school most would say no. However, there are some good reasons for having P.E. Exercising for a short time each day releases energy that you may have built up from sitting in class. You can also concentrate more in class which can help students perform better on tests and quizzes.
When I finally come home around 9:00 pm, I am responsible for completing homework, quizzes and studying for four classes. Many will ask “why do you work?” I simply answer because I have to. The average student has bills to pay that our parents cannot afford since they pay for our expensive tuition. I, unfortunately, don’t have time for extracurricular activities, but image how stressful the situation is for a college athlete whose tuition depends on the sport performed. The solution to the sleep deprivation problem among students is not to make college “easy”.
When most people run into a problem we are quick to defend what we personally perceive to be right. We do not think about different ways to approach problems because we do not plan on a problem arising but the truth is we are faced with potential problems with everything we do in life. There are certain open-minded attributes that we can possess and really have a better understanding of in order to approach problems that may arise. Three of the most important attributes that I will discuss that I feel are important to have when approaching problems are open-mindedness, listening, and surprise. These attributes may not make sense to you now but they will.
I look at how I want others to consider when speaking and interacting with me. That is the way I have to try to handle myself when dealing with others. Taking calculated risks is what I do best because I cannot stand losing too much if the results do not outweigh the risks involved. I am also very critical on myself and can point out faults in a heartbeat. I have to analyze future actions before I act on anything because I do not want to go wrong or too far away from initial path.
Complaining effectively is crucial to make situations work out to your best interest. Before you complain, the most important step is knowing what you want to achieve. Never ignite an argument without knowing for certain the circumstances that you either agree or disagree with, and what you think needs to be changed. Going into an argument unprepared lessens the chances for success, and the complaint will not be as convincing. Knowing what you want to achieve will show
The Problem The important distinction between a negotiation and an argument is a successful negotiation should end with mutual agreement. By the end, both party’s relationships should not be severed or damaged in anyway. Efficiency is also very important because no one wants to feel like he or she is wasting his or her time. The longer a negotiation lasts the more of a risk a person will lock in to a position. With any negotiation, the positions will flex and change as the sides reach a compromise.
