Career and college readiness
According to the article “What To Expect The First Year Of College”, give tips on what are something to be aware of going into college being a freshman. Something I found very interesting about this article is how this freshman 15. What is freshman gaining weight have to do with college, Reading the article it goes deeper into how this can be important. It's interesting how our mind will allow us to emidentalty go to from one home style to something completely different. It talks about how during college that you're easily to gain weight faster than home because most of the meals are not home cooked and good protein and nutrientsThis is interesting to me because you can easily go from eating good working out and staying healthy and having a good body, to something completely different and how your body will react to all your new ways.
Something that I don't really agree with in this article is how about the community bathroom become gross. I understand how they can be nasty at times because of the ten or more people using three or four showers, toilets, and sinks. I feel like as much as money as students pay to live on any campus that they should make the community bathrooms much bigger for as many people that have to use them. It's a matter of germs that is very nasty to people.So yes they should make the community much bigger for the students.
There is something that I agreed with throughout the article is you will get homesick, and that you will eventually overcome it. The reason why i agree with this is because of people come out of different types of homestyles and going somewhere away from home and family can be hard especially if you are new to whatever state or city that you are going to. Meeting new people to occupy your mind of home would help a lot. Your friends and family can just be a call of facetime away if you miss them. So I totally agree with student getting homesick a lot.
The first Article “What To Expect The First Year Of College.” was more of a summarized explanation of what to expect when you attend college. I feel like this artiv=cle did not go into much details like it could've, but it did get the point across.
The second article “Common Problems College Freshmen Mights Face.” was very in depth about the topic i loves how they explained more about why this and why that. It is more informal than the first one.
In conclusion both of the articles are very similar because they both gave off giving good information about what are thing to expect your first year of college.
Most people in life, encounter a period of time in their lives where they are facing a very daunting obstacle standing in their way of unlocking their full potential and future success, For example, it may be a high school baseball player not making their school baseball team or a high school student getting denied from their dream college they've always wished to attend. These are both different obstacles preventing people from unlocking their full potential in what they want to pursue, but these experiences will also make these people even more hungry to strive even harder for what they would like to achieve in their lives. I definitely fall in line with this group of people. Throughout my entire life, up until my sophomore year of high school, I've really struggled with my academics. For example, I've had a plethora of meetings with teachers and counselors, hiring several different tutors to even getting tested for a potential academic disability.
Subsequent to an unacceptable, Freshman year academically for the lofty standards I had set for myself going into my high school career. I decided it was time for a change, therefore the summer prior to sophomore year, I decided to create realistic goals for myself, for the upcoming year. For instance, I just wanted to pass all my classes with ease.
Throughout my sophomore year, I was working much harder than ever before and I was finally feeling happier with my performance in my classes and my vastly improved work ethic. As the year went onI was earning all A’s and B’s in the majority of my classes and this brought me great joy knowing that I am more than capable of earning good grades when I put in the hard work that is imperative in order to earn these good grades.
Following the last day of school sophomore year coming home to my parents that day was a special feeling for me knowing that I've put them through some difficult times about school in years prior. So being able to share with them that I finished the school year with an 88 average was awesome. I will forever cherish the moment speaking to my dad saying ”Dad I finished this semester with an 88 average!” with a thrilling smile on my face as I uttered those words. He responded by saying ”I am so proud of your efforts this year, but more importantly, you should especially be proud of what you were able to accomplish this year”.
Looking back on this journey, I have learned that you should never give up on something in life even when it feels as if there is little to no hope left. There is always a path to success when you are willing to be the hardest worker you can possibly be in whatever you may be striving to pursue and I can always take this experience with me into the future stages of my life.
