I spend at least fifty percent of a semester on a sleep schedule that leaves me incredibly tired for class. And thus, I’m less likely to perform well on test, taking notes, and communicating with my classmates.

The biggest action I’ve taken to reduce this problem is pour out any caffeinated beverages ready to drink after five. Also, I have created a habit of not bringing my phone, and other electronic devices to my bed, and instead leaving them on my desk. I’ve gotten positive results, but I’m not quite where I want to be yet and there are many things I can still …show more content…

And while I do have procrastination issues I’ve always seemingly find a way to get prepared in time.

    I was amazed by how civil engineering has been developed from trial and error until it became something almost perfect, the way it uses mathematics and physics to ensure or enhance the welfare of a group of people, and the way people’s lives change with the construction of a highway, a bridge, or even a large edifice. I admired the way civil engineers can go days without sleeping, or even risk their own lives to do what many people call impossible. Then I understood why I liked it so much. At that time I was 14 so I decided civil engineering as a good career to…
