Flat Land

I think if women were more powerful they would go from lines to a creative shape. Have different perspectives and views. In ways that can become beneficial to women and other minorities.

Timed Writing

Feeling suffocated is something I feel a lot during stressful school times. For example, right now. I am applying to colleges, looking for scholarships, and waiting to get a "Yes" for both. This has been my life so far since August, but apparently having a head start is less stressful.

Reflection on College Essay

In my essay I wrote about being a 1st generation college student. This was an important topic I wanted to write about because I think many people can relate to it in some way. In the essay I express my hopes to what I want to achieve in college and after college.

My Goals for College

My goal for college is to study something that I am interested in and also am able to help through it. For me it's important to be happy with my study choice because it would be what my career is based on. A job I will hopefully enjoy everyday. Something else I really hope to achieve in college is being part of the campus. Creating relationships and being involved in different activities.

Last Book I Finished

The last book I finished was "My Story" by Elizabeth Smart. This was an autobiography about her life experience at the young age of 14, when she was kidnapped for 9 months. The book follows the plot line on how she was kidnapped and her tough experience she had to suffer. She also goes in depth on her rescue and the after story from this dramatic experience. One thing I really liked about this text was that the author was really descriptive of all the emotions and thoughts she was going through. This was a really interesting aspect on how she handled a dramatic experience during and after.

self assassment

Some of the strengths I will use on the ACT are picking the reading passages that are the easiest for me. This would help me keep track of my time and not spend too much time on what I don't know. Also, not taking too much time reading the passages and just focusing on the main points. I will also not stress myself out and make sure I am ready for it. By this I mean having a good night sleep and feeling confident.

The areas that are most challenging for me are focusing on the reading. Often it takes me a while to process all of the information. I think I need to work on this because we are given a limited time. I also want to improve on the comprehension and practicing more before the actual ACT. I could do more independent reading and practicing by myself to achieve this.
