3 Reasons to celebrate 1. How i've grown as a writer. I feel like over my entire writing career I have improved immensely on writing out of all my classes, my grammar and punctuation skills have skyrocketed. I can finally feel proud about my writing and not embarrassed like I used to be even though I still have a ways to go to become a “Great” writer and I know and feel that I will work my ass off until I can be the best writer I can be. I no longer feel like I'm drifting along in my humanities class I feel like I AM a part of that class not just someone on the sidelines. I can actually get in on conversations other than having absolutely no clue as to what is going on at anytime in the classroom, I don't feel...Dumb anymore about any of the subjects in humanities, and my writing in general, I know how to include myself in conversations and expand and be descriptive in my writing. 2. How my friendships and relationships have evolved. I feel like my friendships have stayed the same over the years in school, I have had the same friends and the same status with all of them since I could remember. As for teachers I have some connection with the teachers most of them are just here to help me on all of my schoolwork, I think I need to strengthen these relationships just so I can know exactly what they feel and want from me, Other than Matt of course mainly because he was the first teacher that I let hear my story and how I actually feel and he got me out of my headphones and corner stage of my 9th grade career so I already know how he feels at times and what type of work he needs me to produce, I just need to be better around my teachers and show them what I can really do. 3. How I have grown as an artist. My art has been getting better over time as I have all these different styles of art classes, I feel like most hand drawings and paintings aren't my strong suit, I have already started artwork on the computer and for me it's just something i'm used to, it's something i'm good at. I have been taught by everyone on the internet, every drawing and piece of art I see inspires me to do more and to make it better, putting detail upon detail until I get arthritis or at least until It hurts, I take MY style of artwork very seriously and it's not like everything else bores me but it's just not as interesting, I can't do the same amount of work. I don't find the appeal but I hope to get SO good that I can start making my own professional artwork 2 Things to work on 1. Student teacher relations. I can't help but feel like none of my teachers actually enjoy my company, like i'm just another kid that they have to deal with on a day to day basis, I only feel like this because I don't do enough work for them to like me in their classes, but I would never know so I sit there and think about it all day cause paranoia sets in and I can't help it. I think next year I will try my heart and my head out to do enough work for them too enjoy me being there, and hopefully I can make a bundle of new friends to talk too seeing as i'm always bored. I just hope next semester can be a lot better than this semester. 2. Advocating for myself. I know for a fact that I don't do enough of this, I mostly just hope and pray that someone will notice i'm having trouble, like in math I try to do the problems but I just don't know the equations I can keep them in my head even though I really wanna know how to do trigonometry, and i'm learning how to do it, i'm just REALLY slow to learning math even though it does interest me it's just hard to get a hang of. I need to ask teachers for support so that I never fail math class again, and maybe even if i'm sick or any situation where I can't get to school to get my work I should still advocate for myself and get on the internet and get my assignments turned in. 1 Question How can I change my whole year and my 10th grade experience, cause I don't want to fail but I feel like I can't get enough work done in time. What can I do next semester to just so I dont have to fall behind again.
