Yes, school is once again back in session. That means no more Netflix nights or slacking. Here’s the part where I reflect back on the TWO weeks that we had to complete the assignments, and realize that I have not met my expectations once again. I completed all of the assignments besides the project feedback once again, and I’m hoping one of these weeks to actually fulfill ALL of the assignments. I’ve just been having such a hard time staying focused on school work lately, but I feel more rejuvenated after spring break.
Since last week was a review, I didn’t read any new material relative to class readings. I did have the chance to look back and reflect on how the semesters gone, as well as to re-visit the growth-mindset topic. I enjoyed having a week to kind of gather my thoughts again, and I realize that I have been slacking in school work.
Class is kicking back into gear, and I’m determined to get back with it. This week I want to complete all of the reading notes and storytelling early (today if possible), and then have the rest of the week to ponder on my project. If I complete the rest of my assignments early, then I should have time to give quality feedback to my peers on their project assignments.
I have a big test in one of my upper division MBIO classes coming up next week, so I’m going to try to get ahead in this class so that I don’t have to worry about it. I have a postlab assignment due tonight, independent project update due tomorrow night, and many other assignments that are all stacking up. I say stacking up, but I had plenty of time to get ahead before they got to this point. For that, I’m disappointed in myself. However, that just gives me more of an incentive to get ahead so thing’s do not add up as they have.
