From the very moment I procrastinated, I knew that the only result ahead was a failure. When attending a school you are always told to plan ahead of time by being organized. However, I always preferred handling my academic work at a snail 's pace. Simply said, I procrastinated leaving everything to the last minute. For some people, being under pressure they tend to produce better results, but on the contrary that is never always the case. Through my personal experiences this didn 't necessarily happen to be the case all the time; sometimes I did better than expected, while other times when I expected to do terrific it would turn out that I did horrible.

Until now, I still find it bizarre considering that it made everything much more difficult than it needed to be. A great example of experiencing some difficulty from this system was taking Geometry Honors. My Math teacher for Geometry Honors was also the same teacher that taught me AP Calculus during my senior year. The way that my math teacher taught was to take a quiz every other day on what we just previously learned along with a big test review before the end of the marking period. Reminder, this was during the six marking period cycle, making it much more difficult to keep up with considering that getting a one, two, or three out of five for at least two geometry quizzes meant the highest you can get during that marking period was an eighty. For my math teacher getting a one meant a fifty, a two meant a sixty-five, and a three meant a seventy-five and on the off chance you received a zero out of five, it literally meant receiving a zero.
