A reason in which would cause this is by no motivation or desire to learn anymore. Many parents are forcing their children to attend school but they don’t want to. Having the students make the decision on whether they want to go to college is based on how they see their future. The tendency of dropouts is increasing ever year from these reasons. College is designed to provide you with a good career in the
I was ready to challenge myself to be on top of my game and get straight A’s. Now that the semester has ended I have realized the challenge to get straight A’s was a lot harder than I thought. I wasn’t used to not receiving a great deal of help when I needed it, I thought being independent and thinking for my-self would be trouble-free. However, college has taught me to grow up, and to stop comparing college to high school. My first class in my link was sociology, initially I wanted to take psychology, but I still wanted to learn the sociological aspect to define people’s actions.
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.
I’ve read that statistics show that those who are the first in their family to go to college will get more discouraged and think that they can’t do it because their parents weren’t able to do it for some reason. However, since reading part of Cox’s book and doing other research I know that I can do this because I know how to manage my stress and for the most part I am able to keep my stress levels down and keep up with school. When I feel stressed I get too distracted from the assignment at hand, when this happens I typically have to step away from the assignment or essay and go take a walk or pray about the situation. I always pray about whatever situation I am in before I even do anything but sometimes I do have to take breaks from an essay because I typically get frustrated thinking that I am a bad writer or something. The student anxiety and fear management are the sections that really stood out to me in Cox’s book because I know that it relates to me especially when she had put some testimonies from other college students, this is relatable to me.
My parents thought that hiding things from me would help me make smarter decisions. At a younger age that may have worked, but now when a certain situation comes my way, I have no clue what to do. If both learning styles were taught in school instead of the education system always leaning toward only academics, it would have been easier for me to adapt to adulthood now. I openly admit that I lack common sense now because I was always pressured to read the assigned books, meet ridiculous deadlines and get the best grades. I look back on it now and while it may have looked better on college applications that I went to a fancy county school, deep down I feel like I will not be ready to live on my own as quick as I should.
They need to be well rounded. Instead of just focusing on what they intended to major, they should take other classes so that they know more and have a more well rounded education. The problem in college people face is that in high school they are not really pushed to do anything. In high school people have learning disabilities, they go off and are supposed to get extra help to learn the material but they don’t. They just pass without “seeing any real improvement in the student 's performance” (Garibaldi 539).
Education was always my passion in college, but I didn’t think much of it as a career because of the profession really is stigmatized as a low paying job. As I began to wonder and study more about the
Anything in my way that can be a distraction, will be set aside and focus only on what is important. There has been so many obstacles in my way as I have gone on this journey to success and for sure, there is more to come. To overcome those obstacles, I try not to pay attention to them and think of ways to keep going without them affecting me on my way to reach my goal. My goal is to go to college and then have a career. It 's a goal that probably a lot of people have, but that can’t reach because of the unwillingness to succeed.
That’s why it’s good for people in this society to continue their education after High School. Our parents were the future and now we are the future. Many teens in this generation is very skeptical about attending college because their parents didn’t attend. We tend to like following in their footsteps. If we want our kids to be successful we have to start building that foundation for ourselves.
There is no doubt that I will have my downfalls, but I know that I will grow from my experiences and make it a good situation to grow as a person. My ultimate goal as a citizen is to make people proud of me, which is everything I have ever wanted. I will never stop working towards that goal, and I believe that starts with becoming the person I want to be in my
