Personal Narrative: My Dropping Out Of Chemistry Class

Decent Essays
The kind of storms I see coming this semester is when we have game day which pull me out of my Chemistry class. In order to make it on time to my games I will miss 8 classes out of 19. Depending on what time we leave I will have to make up quiz in the Student Success Center. I cannot drop out of Chemistry because it will put me behind on my schedule to graduate. I am very hopeful that it will get easier when volleyball is over because I can participate in class lectures. I have been over-scheduled Monday through Thursday because after practice or game I don’t have much time to study for my quiz or exams. I don’t have class on Friday which means I have more time on my hands to study for quiz or exams for Mondays. I really like how I don't

    Just that little bit of time has helped me feel more refreshed when i get home and i can get going on homework without feeling tired or like i 'm running out of time. During the football season it seemed like there was no time to get homework done if you had a full day of school. If you got out of school at 3:15 you got a little relaxing time before practice started. What really made things difficult was zero period in the morning for about 30 minutes then a full 7 hours of school to wear you out followed by a couple hours of practise. When you get home at around 7 pm you 're so exhausted from the day that you just want to eat a meal and get some sleep.…

    Many professors don’t take attendance, or don’t punish students if they miss class, so it’s easy to say “I’m not really feeling it today” and skip. For a time I was skipping my eight AM Anatomy class once or twice a week because I wanted to sleep in. After a few weeks of that and a failed test I realized how much I was hurting my education and quit skipping class cold turkey. Thanksgiving break then rolled around and I realized I needed to kick it into high gear since I only had three weeks left in the semester, one of which was all finals. Since that break I’ve been better about getting things done on time.…

    This is reflected in my week 2 blog reflection when I talked about my experience of having to turn down friends offers to go out on a Tuesday night because I had, and upcoming history test. I struggled with the balance of fun, and school for a while after that, but eventually, I learned something from it. I am not talking about how the United States dropped an atom bomb on Hiroshima, and Nagasaki but rather, discipline. I discovered that you must do your school work no matter how much you would rather be doing something else. This was especially prevailing in my mathematics…

    Look at the chart below, the grades there proves that if we have a four day week than our grades would be off the charts by June. We should have a 4-day school week because, it gives the teachers an extra day to plan and put grades in the Gradebook, students have time to improve their grades, and it also gives one day for an appointment so they don't have to miss school. Most teachers don't have enough time to put at least one grade in the grade book. teachers would stay at school late and go to school early and still won't get enough time to put all the grades in. In the article Commentary: A teacher and Fridays, because if you have school every day but Friday, or Monday, there would be more people out of school on vacation, and or more teachers who would take a sick pass on that day.…

    Have you had a three day weekend and thought that it would be great if you could have that every weekend? Right at the moment school boards are discussing whether or not it would be appropriate to extend the school days by two hours and get rid of Fridays, giving the students a break in the morning and possibly extending their lunches also. Many people especially students are excited and hopeful that the schools will get to use this opportunity. The schools should not do four day weeks because the time students should be spending in the class room would be spent on breaks, the students would not have time in the afternoons to do anything including homework, and students will get restless. If the schools did four day weeks then the students would be in school too long during the day.…

    I had to stay about every day after school to retake tests and relearn the material. This made me feel down on myself, but I changed everything once I changed my study skills which made school so much easier and my grade started to go up. Sophomore year was full of memories with my friends, from the time we had to go to a varsity baseball practice and had to run 3 miles, to when we got in trouble for coming back from lunch 30 minutes…

    (Once, I came in twenty minutes late to a class because I intellectually debated with my history teacher about time zones!) I also adjusted very quickly to having only a few classes a day, and continually checking my schedule to make sure that I didn’t miss them became second nature. Due to the fact that I’ve always been mature when it comes to my studies, but I’ve since learned to come to class on time, I feel like a hybrid between both levels of…

    Another example, is when I made it to college I seen the difference very quickly if I missed a class period in college I was behind because the professor is discussing something new the next class section. My attendance in college played a big part in my grade for my classes as well if I missed a day or class it would drop my percentage in my class if I missed. One thing I learned in college is doctor excuses doesn’t work like they did in high school. Therefore, I learned very quickly that I had to attend class each and every day if I except to graduate from…

    On days I play games, I get home anywhere from 7-9 depending on if the game is away or if it is extended. Other than that, I don’t have commitments after school. Before school, I sometimes do homework because I enjoy waking up early. However, I don’t accomplish a lot of homework in the mornings because I have to be at school at 7. I spend a lot of time on homework during the week because I dislike doing homework during the weekend.…

    Without a job, I would be able to spend more time relaxing as well, and come home right after school, do my homework, and then sit back and do absolutely nothing. I would be able to do all of the things that I didn 't have time for working. Right now, because I work, I’d come home after I get off at nine at night, and talk to my girlfriend while I do homework until midnight. It makes it difficult to really balance spending time with family and friends as…
