As I sit at my desk attempting to start this very paper, I hit a wall; I have no idea what I want to write about. It’s not that I can’t think of a reason although that is what I tell myself. I haven’t even tried to, so I just sit here staring at my blank screen. “Well, maybe I can do it over the weekend I have Sunday free, yes, that will work out perfectly,” I think to myself. “What harm could it do, after all it’s just one day, not that big of a deal.” Then I thought back to not even two weeks prior, I had a lab report due in chemistry; I had been sitting at home on a Sunday night and had every intention of doing my report but then, as soon as I got my computer out, I lost all motivation to type it.
Figuring out how to start a project has always been a constant challenge for me. If I end up starting a project, it tends to be at the last minute and usually ends very badly for me because of my lack of proper planning and preparation. Last school year, I took a ceramics class and I didn't make any projects on the wheel until the last week rolled around. The end goal was to produce about fourteen different shapes and sizes of pots within one week or else I would fail. Of course, I managed to finish them all but I was unsatisfied with the quality and how they turned out.
Only a couple more hours and I’d have to get Lexus out of bed, fix lunches for the day, and get myself together. “Not yet”, I told him. “Just let me go over this last section and then I’ll be done”. “Yeah right”, he said as he left the room. Sleep was something I was not interested in these days.
English was my least favorite subject. I hated reading, I hated writing, I even hated doing research. In My first semester here at Columbus State, I took an English 1100 class. In that class, I rarely came to class, turned every single paper in late, and I didn’t even show up for the final and ended up failing that course. I had to retake English 1100 in order to follow through with my Academic plans.
Although receiving good grades is important, cheating is not the right way to do so. Students who cheat are hurting their futures in a post-secondary education and for their career. Cheating causes the student to lose critical thinking ability, honesty, self-image and integrity, self-confidence and respect, and reputation. Without critical thinking a student will have a hard time distinguishing clear, reasonable judgements. In order to move on and expand ones education, a student must first clearly understand the basic concepts of a topic.
Techniques such as following a schedule, avoiding distractions, taking action, breaking to-do’s into smaller pieces, learning frustration–tolerance skills and last but not least having an internal motivation will help students avoid their procrastinating habit. Procrastination is the most common problem seen in students. Students who do not procrastinate are more likely to succeed in their life in comparison to one’s who do. According to Margaret Kaminsky in “Why Can’t I Stop Procrastinating” people procrastinate mainly because they are scared of being successful. She says
But that student, may have a very good grade in the class, but because they are disrespectful, that teacher decide to fail that student because he/she has three unexcused absences in class. There are a lot of everyday problems that make students late to their class, such as crowded hallways, waking up late, greeting friends, eating breakfast etc. I believe that failing student because of their tardiness is unfair and unjustable. Montgomery Blair High School has about fifteen hundred students. They are a lot of things that can happen on your way to
For instance, students may become prone to stress if they contemplate too long on deciding on a major, this could also lead to the student’s poor performance in school which also reflects badly on the school’s reputation. Needless to say time and money is used up carelessly when students take courses and then decide to change their majors. Some likely sources for students’ indecisiveness when choosing a major could be due to their lack of research and experience related to their interests from the very beginning. This issue has become a very common in nearly all universities. Students need to know that it is okay to explore your options and gain experience; a student shouldn’t wait too long to be confident about their major.
Scientist Matthew Kirby explains that reduced sleep delays the chemical release of nitric oxide which causes a late and prolonged “wake-up” period (56). During this time, students are unable to fully process information and feel dazed. Aside from a slow thought process, slept deprivation is usually accompanied by irritability, frustration irrationality due to tiredness and stress. As a parent, it is unfathomable to even consider that their child might resort to drugs or alcohol as a form of relaxant, but according to a study by Heather Noland, up to 15% of ad... ... middle of paper ... ...he Circadian sleep cycle of teenagers, most students would continue to feel tired around 11:00 pm and fall asleep (226). Since students will continue to have the same sleep time, school districts should implement a later start time to increase sleep.
In this dream, I will have an exam at 8:30am. Last night, I forgot to put an alarm on the clock and just slept. Because of which I was not able to wake up in early morning and I got late from college. It was already 8:00am and I was still at home. Afterward I got ready in 10 minutes and took a bus than train but unfortunately, my train got stucked in between which made me more nervous it was now 8:30am.
