3 positives for the new school year

Postby tears_on_a_pillow » Mon Sep 03, 2007 4:47 am

The new academic year is fast approaching so I thought those of us who are off back to school, college, 6th form or university can list 3 positive things about doing so and then when it gets to half term we can see how we are doing at achieving them and set new targets.

I will start

* To try and make new friends with the people on my course

* To keep to my promise and let the course director know if I am struggling

* Try my hardest not to fall behind wiht deadlines

I will:

1. Try my hardest with my dissertation especially since my superviser seems to think I'm going to come out with a First for my dissertation!

2. Aim for at least a high 2 1 when I graduate next June.

3. Try to make friends with the freshers in my campus halls of residence.

1. Try To Pay More attention to topics not of my interest ( I struggle very badly if a topic doesn't interest me, probably one of my worst aspects of AS/Dyspraxia, see even I have it bad in some areas :wink: )

2. Try To Make Some More Friends (A Very Nice Girl (personality and looks wise LOL!!!) is back for the 2nd year of archaeology, must keep bottom jaw from dropping, HAHA) But I'd really like to get a few more friends to talk to.

3. Try To Improve my speech difficulties, for some reason I stutter, mispronounce and backtrack words more often now than I did in school. Probably comes to the fact I'm using an entire different vocabulary that I'm not entirely used to for College.

Great idea, Lea!

1.) To be more organised. This means replying to academic and welfare-related e-mails as soon as I receive them, so I don't get into trouble with the college authorities again.
2.) To do the bulk of my work within three days of receiving it.
3.) To spend less time reading books that aren't relevant to my course and more time reading the ones that actually are.

2. Consentrate harder on what the teacher is saying.
3. actualy do revision befor exams.
