My Goals In High School

Good Essays
Many things happened in my high school years and transformed me, I used to wait until the last minute for everything and set no goals for myself. There were many things that changed me, I like the person I am today and hope this all leads me to be successful. Even if I do fail, I take what I learned and promptly get back on my feet. I Went from being less mature to having an adult mindset on everything I do even on the most trivial things I take seriously. My time at WHS and the WACTC contributed to my personal growth, enhanced my sense of community and broadened my knowledge base, molding me to who I am today. My personal judgement is if I didn 't take action to improve on the way I was dragging myself through high school I would be a completely …show more content…
In my case it was exceptional. For instance, when I was younger everybody thought school wasn 't important. That was my mindset, but that changed after I enrolled in high school. Everything within life, whether it be big or small has true depth and meaning.That 's why I am more coordinated and sophisticated. Back then I was weary, modest, non coordinated and had no predetermination to do tasks. Now as a senior my priorities are much more developed, I 'm motivated to succeed and strive to reach my set achievements. All these obstacles I faced changed the way I thought, more so when I noticed how hard my parents work, troublesome life really is, what It means to be content and the significance of life. These are the rationalizations as to why I know i 'm a developed individual and will be …show more content…
I learned programs like photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator inside and out. These things led to me being able to do all sorts of things like being able to use machines more effectively and be able to make all cool designs or posters for things like advertisement. Another skill I learned or improved on is how to design and research for a presentation which led to speaking to big audiences and being confident in what I say. All the skills will help me with college by being able to speak to groups of people with ease and being able to do print jobs on the side for income. The only reason I can’t use my skills I learned in graphics more efficiently is because I plan on majoring in computer engineering. This is my base knowledge to start college off with and i 'm

    I learned that I was too hard on myself, and that at times I was overly dramatic when it came to academics and or achievements. But as a result over these past incidents I learned how to be realistic with myself and my goals, no matter how small or big they are. I still have incidents where I set to high of expectations for myself, whereas as a result I will beat myself up for not achieving what I set out too. With time I have become better with it though, when I ever I am put in that situation I just repeat back to myself everything I should be thankful for and that usually puts me back in a healthy mind…

    This class has improved my typing skills which will benefit me even when it comes to social networking. The power-point presentation practice will assist me with any sort of display I may need to do in order to progress through the company I am with in the future. Without this class I honestly do not think that I would have been able to complete assignments and tasks that I received through Job Corps in the future. I feel that this class was very beneficial to me and anybody else that took it for an endless amount of reasons, it is just a matter of whether or not you are willing to accept new information and knowledge. At first I was a little iffy about taking an intro to technology course considering I have always been very advanced when it comes to computers.…

    However, the most important thing I learned in high school was that you can 't change the past, but you can improve the future. I think the most important thing I learned was to take the experiences I have and use them toward the future. It gave me ambition and passion to become the best version of myself I could possibly be. While I am not happy with the decisions I forced myself to make or who I really even was for much of the time, I probably wouldn 't be who I am right now without that experience. I’m grateful that I used my senior year to learn about myself.…

    I am proud for others to see who I am today. High school has taught me so many lessons not only about myself, but life in general. Thankfully, I have had friends and family who have stuck by my side through it all and encourage and tell me how great of a person I am today. Without my teachers I have had over the past years, I would not be the person I am today. They have changed me for the better because of the many lessons they have taught…

    “If you quite mommy, I get to quit too.” These words have stayed with me. I hear those words as clear as the day he spoke them, using them as a mantra. Although, a challenging decision, choosing to pursue an education has proven to be a great on for me even if it was a rough start. My educational journey in my earlier years had its highs and lows. My mind has always worked in numbers not words which taught me at a young age what I would fail and succeed at.…
