From that moment on, I knew I had to be responsible and actually work for a better grade.
I definitely learned from that failure, and now I’ve passed every following assignment in this class.
One of my high school teachers explained to me that the grade norm in college is much different than that in high school.
For example, when you get a “B” or “C” in high school, it seems like the end of the world.
In high school, we were always treated like children.
Teachers extended deadlines, we received remind messages to study and there were no given responsibilities.
This is helpful to me because with work and my night class, things tend to slip through my fingers and I forget about them.
Another way I plan things out is, even when I have an assignment that does not require an outline for grading purposes, I make one anyways for a guide of what and how I’m going to complete the given task.
By doing this, it has helped me so much not just educationally but personally.
I feel more in control of my life and less stressed about situations, that would normally cause me to panic.
