We all struggle with something when it comes to school, I am looking at particularly academics. For me, it is something I have struggled with since I was little and that would be the frustrating world of mathematics. I have always struggled with subjects that were based around a black and white principle, luckily next year I no longer have to put myself through pain of sitting through a 75 minute science class. Unfortunately, that is not the case for math. Last year, I had a 73% in math, I wasn’t ecstatic but I was quite satisfied considering the uphill battle I had throughout the semester. This year seem’s be be a little different
A little more than a month ago, I wrote my second math test of the year. Now mind you my first one wasn’t spectacular but I was more or less pleased. Unfortunately, my academic career in math took a hit when my school had to change out my teacher for another one. This did not end in a pleasant event. My second test came back with a less then acceptable mark (I failed, plane and simple). I thought to myself “well, that 73% ain’t looking to bad after all”. So the
failure set back, sent me on the 5 step plan of getting over a bad grade. I thought to myself, I can’t be the only one moping about a bad grade, so I decided to make info graph with all the steps and reasonings that I tell myself when the ship feels like it hit the iceberg.
Now these steps are gonna take sometime, personally I am still working on step 3 but emotionally at step 5. We all cope with set backs differently but I can guarantee you what ever the grade it does not define how successful you may or may not be, no matter what anyone tells you. Although it may seem like the ship is sinking, it’s really only a small hole that with following the right procedure and steps can be patched up in no time!
