I would have to say that I’m a pretty funny person & make friends fairly easily. But sometimes i can over think the smallest situations. As I said above by the first two weeks I felt like I had known everyone. The biggest advice to incoming freshman is not to be afraid to make new friends, always be open to try new things & get involved as much as you can. In college the workload tends to get tough.
Responsibility: 9/10 My attendance in high school was not as high as my teachers may have wanted it to be. I found myself yearning for more and finishing my work too quickly. When I went I tried to soak up as much as I could but it wasn’t really until my college courses that I found that knowledge I wanted and regained a strong desire to attend class. While I have never missed classes unless terribly sick, I have been tardy a handful of times. Since honestly is the best policy I cannot fail to ignore that.
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.
I am much more responsible in many different ways. I had to change my study habits, or should I say I have to get study habits. I high school I never studied, because everything came so easy to me and I could just do the work and end up with passing grades. When I reached college I tried to do the same thing and it didn’t work. I had to start studying on a daily basis and it was hard to go from not doing any work to studying every night and on the weekends, I wasn’t use to that, but I had to make it a habit or I was not going to make it.
In my lifetime, I met many wonderful people t... ... middle of paper ... ...e. Time management lowers the work load and does wonders when you realize how much time you actually spend doing the most unimportant things you soon start to quest yourself. Tim managing is a flaw that I will overcome. Time manage will help me progress in the near future. In life there will be barriers n course help me develop my 32-day plan and also a 24-hour schedule which I am still working on it 32-day plan helped me immensely and I am thankful I learned these skills in my college success class, for example, every day I write my time from start to finish and I figure that most of my time is spent doing nothing that 3 hours I take to sleep would of been used to do my homework. All of these skills are tied meaning you can’t have one instead of the other.
Before my years in high school, I rarely put time and effort into studying and constantly associated with my friends at school; that is until I entered high school. The different competitive atmosphere at high school caused me to suddenly prioritize my studies ahead of everything else and my ambition became greater than ever. I began to interact less with my old friends and become less sociable with those around me. My parents also began to notice this drastic change and encouraged me to once in a while contact my old friends. During the beginning, I contacted my friends about two or three times a week, but the phone calls began to gradually diminish.
But where are we supposed to find time for all these things? We wake up bright and early for a day of learning, then it’s off to either our after school activities or work leaving only a small fragment of time for homework and socializing with our peers. I learned the hard way that I have a tendency to bite off more than I can chew which leaves me feeling incredibly overwhelmed due to my lack of free time to unwind. Although it appears to be a simple task, finding a happy medium between these aspects of teenage life is extremely complicated and is most easily found by trial and
The feeling of being understood by another person at a time in life where everything seems to be falling apart or going wrong, can go a long way towards making sure they overcome it and can get back on their feet. Many people never create a connection with a teacher or someone who is much older than them, but I was lucky enough to do so with my study hall monitor Mr. Cyrprinski. Early on in high school, I had a ton of different worries about my future, and it constantly ate away at me. I was frustrated on a regular basis while trying to figure out how to create a career path, balance a social life, and still succeed in school. From the start of the school year, there never seemed to be a dull moment until that final bell rang in June.
I have a friendship that is almost nonexistent because of social media. Jamie and I were best friends until I began to go to a different school; we did not get to see each other as much but still hung out nearly every weekend. To me, the distance made the time we spent together more special. When Jamie and I would actually get to hang out, she would always be on her phone. At first, it did not bother me, but then she began to become so consumed in her online life that she was ignoring everything going on around her.
A convenient friend is someone who you are generally around, and so it is preferred to be friendly and occasionally associate with him or her. An example of convenient friends can be your high school peers. They are convenient friends due to the fact that they were with you everyday for many years, and yet as soon as one graduated, they aren’t likely to interact with you anymore. In my personal experience, I had many friends whom I went to elementary school and then to high school with. I knew some of them for over ten years and yet since we have all graduated and went to separate schools, I have not heard from any of them once.
