Personal Experience: Personal Narrative Of My Life

Improved Essays
I find myself becoming increasingly unsure about my life every day I go to work. I feel myself stagnating. I no longer enjoy the simple pleasures that life has to offer. School is one of the only ways to better myself and I am finding that taking classes while working full-time may have been more than I bargained for. I am made abundantly aware of my lack of significance in this world with every passing moment. I try to find some sort of greater meaning in my actions every day, while working, and while attending class. I have started to come to terms with these thoughts and feeling as being destructive in nature. I am working on finding the causes that are influencing them so that I can better understand how to counteract them. By staying positive …show more content…
I started taking life seriously at what I would consider an age a little too late. My drive and work ethic have me wanting more without having to put in the required years it takes to complete school or advance in my career. While I should be proud of what I have accomplished, I can only see it as not being enough. Sitting in the same job, trying to finish school as quickly as possible thinking about where I would have been by now had I taken my education more seriously is pointless, but gives me great unease. I need to work on my individual growth as a person, be it just learning to accept that school takes time to accomplish and careers take time to build. Going to class and doing well, along with fulfilling all work-related responsibilities will contribute to my growth. I will stop thinking about the past and what could have been, and start focusing on what I am achieving right now and what will come from my present struggles. If I can manage to obtain a sense of certainty and contribution, it would definitely add to the feeling of …show more content…
I am going to start focusing on things that I have control over in the present, and expand from there. I will start contributing more to the things that I can. I am hoping to find more satisfaction from work by looking at things in a more positive light. Doing these things will hopefully allow me to better grow into the person I want to be. Putting into effect these positive changes will translate into what I hope will be finding significance in what I do for a living, along with how I live my

    I have learned how to work hard and I could study for hours on end now, however I don’t think that would be healthy physically or mentally, and definitely not socially. I want to learn how to study in a way that I can get things to stick inside my head more quickly and in a way that I will know how I can apply what I learned to my life. in short I want to learn how to learn better! Lastly one of my biggest weaknesses has been my confidence in myself and in the work that I do. I have always been quiet in class and have not participated near as much as I should have just because of my lack of confidence in myself and in my work.…

    If there are students who are not paying attention there is usually a reason why and that is because I doing stink. Entering in the classroom without a student who are inattentive, unmotivated and feel bored is really impossible. Many times, it is the teacher’s fault that class is boring. But this problem can be solved only by choosing a best activity that the student can relate their self and also the activity that they will enjoy.

    It is true that students have to make that connection themselves often times, but it is impossible if there is no connection to make. If I am going to spend so much time and put so much effort into school, I should be learning things that I will be able to use for the rest of my life. I should have classes that will help me to broaden my mind and think in new ways. I want my grades to reflect on the connections that I am making, not the amount of information that I can temporarily cram into my head before a test. Schools seem to only want students to do well on tests to reflect well on the school district, but they don 't seem to care as much about the students as…

    The Importance Of My Life

    I looked at school as a way to gain knowledge, the same way I would look at watching a documentary. Going back to college is not job training. While I did enjoy the business and economic portion of running a business, I felt that there was more to it than just being able to sit down, run programs, and compute numbers. Having a focus in life is extremely important especially when you truly enjoy doing what you do, but there is a need to be more holistic. Throughout my life so far, I love knowing but I have realized that if I want to know I would need to take the steps to learn.…

    Teachers, well they made it even easier because I could call on them last second in the semester and they would come ready to help me tackle whatever task it was that I needed to get done. From my parents’ relationship, to my friendships and teachers I created terrible habits and more so a terrible attitude. I was never grateful for their help and positive attitudes when I without a doubt should’ve been. I began losing “friends” because I was so selfish and only wanted them to help with my school work. All of this occurred because I wasn’t sure how to handle my emotions.…

    I walked into pedagogy with so much frustration with the amount of reading from previous courses and definitely not looking forward to the amount of reading I was about do. However, reflecting back I can now see the importance of all the previous and present courses’ readings. In addition to that I will say no amount studying or reading can provide me with the knowledge I’ve learned in field. I’ve read many strategies on what can and should be used in a classroom but one thing the reading doesn’t cover is how effective or useful a strategy is in your classroom. One strategy that I’ve seen used the most is the use of learning stations.…
