day answer by kwamain to arons post

Three areas that I struggle in are my study habits, procrastinating and being caution. They all relate which results in to time and much discipline. This is something that can become a problem for me into the fall semester in Columbia College. As soon as I get home or away from the school building I take a deep a breathe and relax. The relaxation that I feel gets me comfortable and a state of mind of rest which makes me fall asleep. Easily makes me lazy then next thing you know I’m distracted by what catches my mind and eye. The second I reach home It’s like comfort and recovery from the effort I put into my day.The second thing I’m curious about is how and when I’m going to meet my lifetime friends. It’s a saying that says your high school friends are not the friends you are going to grow with but the ones you meet in college is the ones you are going to be destined with. So I think about the day when I will run into them. How is going to be when we figure that we are a capatible mate when is the day and time we are going to meet. What will they or he think about me will we be an unbreakable force what will be the interest we will have. Every day I’m on the lookout but I do try to be patient.the third thing I have questions about is will it take me more time on my papers and class assignments to complete. It takes me to study or sit in quietness in order to focus but when given an assignment or being taught a lesson while being rushes I get disappointed and idmmdietly feel intimidated a defeated. When I don’t get the work the feeling is kind of like I just sinked in a pool or deep ocean.In spite of all that I recently mentioned I feel those very things will be the very thing that will help me on way t success. It will prepare me, motivate me and defiantly be a contribution towards my graduation.

well I’m stuck on just getting in right now then I need to pay for it after that It would be keeping up with the work study habits an not having to much fun other wise I think I would be ok I have come to the fact that I my self have to tack evey thing one day at a time or I will just get lazy an not care it happens to me often so I got a be ezey about some of this subject its just the way I am   


1. Math classes 2. Being away from home 3. Money Math classes have always been a struggle for me, because I lack some of the beginning skills necessary to move on, but I do fine in algebra, geometry, and trig I’m just worried that the lack of skill will eventually hinder me. Im not worried about being away from home just being away from my sister, and her having to deal with high school drama. Money is another thing that im anxious about always have been. Making sure I have enough to live the way I like to live 4. Intro to Audio 5. Production 6. Chicago I’m excited about these because they are new experiences in a new and unfamiliar place surrounded by other people who love what there doing. I was told I would love Chicago and would meet so many people.

Matt: Spring Semester

Well, I’m not coming in for the fall semester, so I‘m not that worried about anything financially. This way, coming into the spring semester will give me much more time to work on my financial aid a bit more, and give me a leg up with grants and scholarships. I think it’s a pretty good idea on my part. There are a few things I’m worried about when actually starting though. Studying has always been hard for me. I can never sit in one spot and read, unless I’m truly interested in it. So I’m a little bit worried about that, because I know that in college studying is a big part of getting good grades. I’m definitely going to have to work on it. I’m also a little concerned about housing. I don’t think it’ll be hard to get a dorm, but paying for it may be an issue. I can only hope my dad will help me pay for it, because commuting would be annoying. I’m commuting for the bridge program, and it would be so much simpler to live on campus. Depending on what the topic is, I may or may not be worried about writing. On some topics, I can easily fly through them, but on others I tend to just stare at my computer “trying” to think of a decent introduction, or middle, or conclusion. It tends to stress me out, especially if it ends up being five or more pages. I’m anticipating a lot for the spring semester. I’ve been looking forward to college for quite some time. My math class will be easy as long as I pay attention. I really enjoy math as long as I understand it, I always understand if I pay attention. I’m looking forward to joining some kind of club as well. I’m not sure what’s available, but I would definitely join some kind of writing club, or drama club, maybe even a chess club if there is one. I really want to room with someone. I think the idea of living on a floor with people you’ve never met, and developing friendships is great. If it’s anything like the movies, it’ll be quite an experience.

Slacking off. Nelson

Three struggles that I have, pertaining to Columbia college of Chicago would be my acceptance of the loans, being able to be dedicated to doing my work outside of school, and trying to keep my job and school time divided.

            The acceptance of my loan is one of my main worries, since I was denied a plus loan.  My parents have awful credit, so it is hard for me to get money for school.  I feel that if you have no credit it should be looked at as good credit towards school loans because how is a person that enters college around eighteen able to establish credit, if no one gives them a chance. Also, you barely receive eligibility to get credit at eighteen and your supposed to have good credit in a matter of a few months, which is next to impossible. 

            My next worry is towards me being dedicated to doing my work when I am not in school.  I have always had trouble getting my homework done since I am very easily distracted.  My house is always busy and everybody there is usually very interactive with each other making it harder to concentrate.  The reason why I did not do so well in Morton West high school was that when it came to doing homework, I would constantly slack off. 

            My last worry is being able to divide my time between my job and school.  Now I know work comes after school, but I still need to work.  I need the money and no one is going to help me if I do not make money.  Although in the end, my school is the main priority and anything that gets in the way has to get eliminated immediately.  

            My main weakness in school is my determination to do the work after class is over.  I tend to slack off after school and not think about the consequences until class starts up again and I have no work to give.

            My strengths in school are my good test taking skills.  I have always been able to do good on tests, that was probably the main reason how I passed high school when I was younger.  I would slack the whole semester, and then when the final came I would just study and ace it.


WALTER: Fall Semester

Elementary school and high school does not compare to my new challenge, Collage! I never actually thought I would make it this far. By experiencing the bridge program I felt the pressure of starting school loosen. I am not scared to start school am actually excited I want to begin school. I mean you figure you made it this far it doesn’t hurt struggling doing homework doing projects, its life if I really want this I must accomplish. However I am scared to do my math classes I am very horrible with numbers I tend to flip my numbers a lot. I mean its going to be a struggle for me but I am not in high school were I can just easily not do the work. It will all depend on me. Math is the only problem but I am ready. I want this challenge I want to write these 15 pages essay I want to experience, meet new people, be out there and enjoy what I have at the moment.  I actually don’t care if I fit in or don’t I am here to achieve what I want to be, and I am not letting fashion or letting me people tell what.

            I actually want to see the club I want to join some of them, maybe they can help me to throw my art out there and help me get my name out there. I actually think I will do fine with school work I have made my schedule not back to back that way I have some time to relax and actually get some work done. I want this new year this new beginning last I want to face the challenges that are ahead.
