The second semester has just started, which means it’s time to reflect upon the first semester. As I read my About Me and Reader’s Profile pages I am coming to realize that my work ethics are still the same, but I think some of my goals have changed a bit. In my About Me I said “I am going to turn all my homework in on time, and try my hardest in all my classes.” I am still working hard to do that. Also I wrote that I want to get at least a 3.7 GPA, but turns out a got a 3.9.
Some of my strengths in English class would definitely be reading. I love reading, especially nonfiction, which is what we read in this class. Other strengths I have, not only in this class, but in all classes would be organization. I feel I am a very organized person who can keep track of all of my assignments as well as papers teachers give you and tell you to hang on to. I get all of my homework done, even though I have dance practice every night.
I have strengths as a student, but I also have many weaknesses. First of all, sometimes I don’t feel like paying attention. If the class is extremely boring, a lot of times I’ll zone out and go over my competition routine in my head. My coach would probably be happy with that but I’m pretty sure my teacher’s wouldn’t. Also if I had a bad day, or I didn’t get much sleep the night before, I won’t be very motivated to do anything that day. Most of the time I just feel like reading, because when I’m not feeling good I grab a book and it takes my mind off of things.
During this past semester I learned many things during Cyber English. To start off, I learned how to write blog posts. I have never had a blog before, so obviously I didn’t know that there was a special way to write them. Also I learned how to analyze books as I read them. Before this, I just read the book, and when I was done with it I went to the next book. Now I have learned that there is so much more there when you really think about what you have read.
My goal for this next semester is to get all A’s. I achieved that this semester, so I believe I can do it again. My goal for all of high school is simply just to stay involved and keep up my grades. I have talked to seniors who are going into college and they say that a lot of colleges are very competitive. Colleges like people who are extremely involved in not only sports but clubs and comities too. Right now, my goal is to become a physical therapist when I am older. It could change, and it might, but I know that if I want that goal to become reality, I really need to work hard for it.
In my free time, I like to do a number of things. First of all, I’m on the dance team, so I have practice 6 days a week for that. That takes up a lot of my time. What I really like doing is just hanging out with my friends. We go ice skating a lot, and we always go to Dairy Queen. It’s just our traditional place to go. I love watching the Packers and the Brewers. Those are my two favorite sports teams. Brian Kohn and Craig Counsell are my two favorite players! I think it would be so cool to go to the SuperBowl because the Packers are in it this year.
