Early Freshman Years Narrative

Good Essays
Coming into to high school as a freshman I had goals. A goal not to allow anyone to take my confidence away any longer, to reach a level of confidence in myself I could be proud of and a goal to excel in high school… Things don't always work as planned. The goals I had for myself was completely thrown down the drain… by my own teacher and people in my family. My teacher told me because I didn't understand math I would be stuck in high school. People in my family told me the things I wanted as career wouldn't happen. These events that took place early freshman year had an affect on my whole freshman year.

I began to get decent grades but then I realized I was alone. A past of having a terrible bullying experience left me hating to be alone. I was scared to be alone. I had no one to do group projects with so I began not caring again. I began not paying attention in class, not doing homework, failing because of the group work and project. Moving to a state that didn’t have regents played a part in setting me back from where I was suppose to be. Moving and being alone everyday made me realize I was taken away from the people I loved because I needed to get my mindset together. Being in a different state with no friends and no one that I was close to was an eye opener I realized people don't dictate my future I dictate my own future, no one will tell me how my future will be except …show more content…
As i start my senior year I am still on the path to learning this new way to deal with things. This has taught me that even in my future no matter the barrier in my road I have to learn to let it mess up the plans I have for myself and for my future.

    One of their main reasons is that students do not prepare for tests, and they do not even attempt to complete their assignments, and therefore end up failing the classes.

This change was a major turning point in my early educational career, this is when a 7 year old version of me decided that the world was against him and no matter how much effort I put forth I would be unable to achieve my goals at the same level as my peers. I started to think about the point of trying, so I stopped trying to learn and achieve in reading. My second grade year of elementary school was a difficult year for my educational achievement. I started to talk back to the teacher, not express interest in school topics, and essentially gave up on achieving educational bliss.…

    Each time she came to me she was rejected and each time she came to me it made me develop a passion to prove to her I could handle it.

Furthermore, I knew it was time for me to get serious and learn how to multitask and work under pressure. I wanted to get closer to doing something that I would normally do in college.
