I would never had made it to college if I gave up on education because my senior year I felt really lazy and I didn’t know what to... ... middle of paper ... ...tion is sometimes taken for granted because I feel like I don’t need to learn a certain subject in college but yet I need it to involve in the real world when getting a job. To me education is what prepares me for a career job the people who are hiring looked for the ones that are open minded and can easily work with their surroundings. Education is important in many ways it helps us become better people to be able to show academic skills learn throughout many years of school. I feel that when I’m looking for internships people look for my background and how experienced I am when it comes to programming. I think if I overachieve my education in computer science I could be able to be successful like Reyna Grande on how she was able to pursue her dream career as a writer.
It wasn’t until my senior year of high school when I realized the true importance of going on to college really was. The only reason I excelled in my studies was because I was always enforced too, so when it came down to my decision to continue school I didn’t know what to do. I decided that even with a degree in today’s economy it won’t have much of an impact. But I couldn’t have been more wrong than ever. I eventually came to my own senses and decided for myself that all my years of being in school, planning for my future, long hours of hard work and perseverance shouldn’t go to waste.
I am learning to be more serious and I find myself not taking life for granted anymore. I also feel that maturing counts as learning for me because growing up I was continuously being called immature. For me, maturing counts as learning because I find myself doing things I never thought I would be doing, like going to college, for example. I am learning that I am getting a chance to attend college and to have the chance to make something out of myself. I feel this way because I realized that a lot of people do not get a chance to go to college and make something out of their lives.
My academic career in high school wasn’t exactly what you would call the smoothest journey, but one thing I can confidently say is that it prepared me for college. Through all the all complicated tests, tight schedules, and the heavy loads of work I realize that I didn’t necessarily have to be a decorated student to understand the message. However that is only one of the few reasons I believe I did well in my first at college; ultimately it was more of a psychological drive that kept me pushing through thick and thin. During graduation I was under the depressing belief that this day would probably be the last day I ever see some of my friends ever again. While sitting in the front row during the graduation ceremony I was able to see a good amount of students walk by with special cords resting on their shoulders signifying some sort of achievement; the weight around my shoulders was practically nonexistent, unless you want to count the robe.
Are we going to try and finish the assignment on capsim or are we going to do something that is similar to capsim. Other than all the questions I asked already I don’t have anymore because I felt like this class was too hard for me to get. All I am hopping for is that next semester is easier because I really want to learn something in this class. I am not saying that I didn’t learned anything all I am saying is I want to actually want to learn something that I will get and not have to take a guess at it. I feel like next semester as a class we need to be doing more business stuff for example hands-on stuff so we can feel like we actually business
When I was a freshman majoring in business, and I was miserable because I had no interest in the classes I was taking, so I dropped out. I spent the next two years traveling, and somewhere in those two years I realized that photography was what I wanted to pursue. The funny thing was since I was about six I’ve always wanted to be a photographer, but I didn’t realize it because I didn’t stop to really think about what I truly wanted to do. I realize that I’m not going to make the big bucks, which is OK because you can’t put a monetary value on happiness.
A recent failure that has changed how I go about my daily life is one that many college freshman experience in their first year. In high school I was a very good student, but I did not have to put in a lot of effort to get the grades that I wanted. I would joke with my friends and say that high school taught me how to put in the least amount of effort, and still get the maximum result. All of my teachers told me, as they did every student, that college was going to be different and if you do not put in more effort it would be very difficult. I knew this coming into school, but I am not sure if part of me wanted to prove people wrong, or if I actually was just adjusting to college life.
Until this past spring I hadn't thought much about what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go for college. One day in the spring the junior class had a meeting in the auditorium about taking our ACT test and college plans. After that meeting I realized I needed a change, getting into college wasn't going to be a breeze, kind of how I had treated high school. Although I always considered myself to be fairly smart, I never had put much effort into school, but after seeing the facts and requirements to get into schools, and especially after hearing Ms. Rice saying "In today's world, the way to a successful future, is choosing college as your future", I knew I had to make an adjustment for the better so that college could be my future. Soon After, I started looking at college websites, looking for where I might want to go.
My college career started with me just going to school to take PE classes while neglecting my main required core classes and always pushing them aside without any urgency to succeed in finishing school. A couple of years would go by with little to no progress and lack of motivation to succeed in finishing my college required classes. Soon landing a career oriented job and finding myself dropping out of college to focus on my work career. From this point and time I would learn the importance of school and the value of finish college through my years of experience at work. This awareness of value in finishing college would motivate me to want to go back to school.
All my decisions have been well thought out and planned, this decision is no different, I just went about it a little quicker, with a lot less time to spare. I began my freshman year at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island. Choosing Roger Williams University was a decision that I made without understanding the important issues I needed to consider in order to thrive in a college environment. Now, after experiencing college for myself, I realize that Roger Williams does not have what I am looking for. I didn't consider quality of education when I chose Roger Williams, the school had the major I wanted, communications, but when I started taking classes there the program was not as developed as I would have liked.
