Forum: When you think you've missed an assignment...
Hi Savann96,

I generally am very good at keeping track of my assignments. Choosing to do them, on the other hand, is a different story. This quarter, I have turned in several assignments late and I still have a 90% in the class. I think that the value of each assignment definitely plays into how much effort I put into doing the assignment was lots of effort, however, I would like to view every assignment as a big assignment because even fin it is not “worth” a lot of points, it still is apart of the class. I have noticed that if I start to tolerate a small lack of integrity, that becomes the normal. Then, as time allows, I slowly start completing things less and less.

Cheers!

@Alex Yes, it is very fun! I think we have clubs like this because Seattle has a huge dance scene and also I am at the University, not the community college. We also have a “Salsa Social” at the end of each quarter. This Saturday as when it is happening and I will dress nicely, wear makeup, and do my hair nicely for social dancing. I think that it is awesome you want to improve uplifting clubs. That is a great goal and I hope you achieve it with hard work and lots of fun!

@KoolKoala I is so great how you are giving back to the community by being a mentor for a team that you had a lot of fun on!

@Kendall Wow, that is amazing! It is so cool how involved you were in high school. I totally get waning to focus on education and close friendships. I think it is interesting how opposite we are. In high school, although I was on a dance team through school, I was more focused on nurturing close friendships. Now, I am primarily focused on social salsa & bachata dance, networking, academics, and creating opportunities for growth and fun!

@Samantha Wow, that is so great you were apart of science clubs. I was never great at those types of sciences, so it is great to hear that someone else thrives there. Also, your research is so cool! Good on you for doing research that is fascinating and awesome! Also, you should join the video game club if that is what you are interested in as well. Pursue what you love!

@Nya It is so great how active you are for the environment and animals. Your activism makes a huge difference and you seem like the type of person to be an incredible leader.

I really enjoyed reading your posts! Thanks for replying everyone!

Cheers!

I recently joined the Salsa club at school and I love it! We learn bachata as well. Other than that, I do not have any direct school-related activities. Next year I would like to be a T.A. or do research.

Next year 2 of my friend’s are creating the Zouk club, where they will teach kizomba. I will probably join their club as well.

Forum: Hands on learning
Hi Bella,

I definitely think that I need more than just listening for me to truly learn and retain information. For example, what my physiology and anatomy class has review sessions throughout the week and they do activities to help learn the material. I love going to these because they help the material come alive and I learned so much more through these sessions than I do just sitting in lecture or reading the textbook. Having a study group works really well to learn the material as well.

Cheers!

Hi Morgan,

I go to school at the University Of Washington and I am majoring in Psychology! I love the campus here, especially in the spring, summer, and autumn. I also love Psychology, so I am having a blast at school!

Subject: Re: Hows your GPA?

Forum: Hows your GPA?
Hi Slynch,

My GPA is alright. I would like it to be better because I have always been a "B+" student. Acedemia has never been my strong suit, so I have worked really hard to have mastery in the world of acedemia. However, if I were in a class that graded us on our personableness, recruitment/enrollment in an important matter, teamwork, and leadership, I would get an A in the class. Classes like my current Physiology & Anatomy class is challenging for me because I am not naturally good at constant testing. I am learning a lot and there is a lot of group work, so I am constantly entertained by this class.

Cheers!

Forum: Is College What You Expected?
Hi Morgan,

Is awesome that you found college to be easier. I found college to be very difficult once I got to the university. Not only had I taken a one-year break from school, I had a really easy time at community college, so I was not prepared for the university experience. At the University, not only are my classes full of 100 - 300 other students, my classes also have a much heavier course load than I community college.

I think the most challenging thing about college is that I don’t live on campus, so I do not have the campus experience with lots of friends around me and I commute about 30 minutes - 60 minutes just to get to school. I live only 15 minutes away from my community college, so it was a big shift for me to commute so far off campus. Now that it is spring quarter and I am 3 quarters into the school year, I have a good routine for school and I am starting to make friends at school.

Now that my weekends are open, I plan to hang out with other friends from school on Saturdays after assisting in the morning time. I’m excited to explore the city with friends again.

Cheers!

Forum: FRIDAY!
Hi Monica,

Wow! It sounds like you had a lot going on. I’m glad you were able to get through the week and I’m sure you’re super excited for the coming week. Every week is one week closer to the end of the semester!

I have had a very stressful week. I have gone to sleep at 3 AM every day and woke up around 8 AM. I had one exam yesterday, which of flopped, and another exam today at 10:30 AM. My anatomy and physiology class has been very stressful because I have an exam every two weeks and we cover a new “topic “every single day lecture, minus the lecture before the exam set aside for review.That means that there are eight different lecture topics to go over for the exam. What I’m going to do this week is get ahead so that every single lecture I will already have an outline of this material and answer most of the study questions before class.

As for my other two classes, I am going to do the reading as ethical instead of putting them off to the last minute and stop treating them as my “easy” classes.

Cheers!

Subject: Extracurricular Activities?

Forum: Extracurricular Activities?
Are you apart of any extracurricular activities (clubs, socials, T.A., research, volunteering, etc.)? They can be school related or non-school related.
Why did you choose those activities?

-------------------------------------------------------------

I have been thinking about how I can be more involved with school next year. I am a transfer student, so the integration of the social aspect of school has been a challenge for me. Next year I will for sure do research (I can also get credit for it), probably in social psychology. Also, I would like to join the Taiko Kai club because I want to do more with Japanese culture and also become fluent in the language. I currently speak at a preschool-elementary level, haha!

I also thought about how cool it would be to be a T.A. so that I can help other struggling students learn the material. I totally know the struggles that students face because I am a student and it would be great to give back to others what I have been given out of the kindness of others.

Currently, I assist at Landmark Worldwide. The assisting program is a formal program and I love it! It is great because I get more out of it than I put in and the people I am surrounded by are people who are out to transform their lives and the lives of others through the Landmark Forum. The integrity, authenticity, and humor that fills the space is so real and I love being apart of it. Also, I am going to start going to salsa social at my school starting next week. It is free for students and I want to get into dance again because I always feel happy doing it and it lights me up.
