My greatest weaknesses would have to be procrastination and time management. Last semester was one of my worst when it came to homework and studying. I got so focused on Chemistry that I would put all of my other classes to the side. It turned around to bite me but luckily I made it through. The time management part goes hand and hand with procrastination. I always did my chemistry at night, but during the day I would just go to class, football, and AT on the weekends. This semester I have done much better with both, but I still need to improve because I know I can. I got a planner and went through all of the syllabuses for due dates. I have seen the benefits of just adjusting my habits by a little and I am ready to do better.
My greatest strengths would have to be determination and confidence. When I first got in the program these would have been my weaknesses. I have forced myself to become a better student/friend/son because I want to be better. I was not confident at all last year or last semester. After staying here over the winter and going over my clinical packet with Melissa and Cole I finally realized that I did know more than I thought. Everyday we would go over that packet and I would get more and more confident. Melissa really helped me get over the fear I had of what if I don’t know it. After passing my exit, I had the greatest feeling and ever since then I have been trying to be better because I loved the feeling of being successful.
For attempts and masteries, I have been meeting my goal. I am about 15 attempts away from reaching the required amount. I am a little behind on masteries though because I haven’t been trying for those as much recently, but I met my goal for the week. Chaypin is still really helpful and encouraging when it comes to the clinical packet.
