Times like last night make me regret not taking my bid when I had the chance. I know the door was open afterwards but my feelings had changed and I honestly only have the deepest connection with the girls who would have been in my line, it wouldn’t have been the same with any other lines.
"If I were in high school, Ashley M is someone whom i would want as a friend. It is not because of her intelligence or kindness, although she certainly has both in abundance, but rather because of her maturity and sense of self. While her peers and classmates struggle to fit in and determine who they are, Ashley has figured herself out and accepted herself thoroughly. Instead of trying the latest trends or rebelling against all things deemed popular by the masses, Ashley carefully considers all options and decides on what is best for her. It is incredibly rare to meet a young woman with such self-possession and self-awareness, and this is precociousness will serve her well in the future.
…I am very pleased to offer my recommendation on Ashley’s behalf; it is certain that her maturity, insight, and bubbly personality will take her far, and any institution of higher learning would be very lucky to have her.”
aww gosh he made me sound like this amazing student . he’s deff my favorite teacher of high school . :]
Positive or negative expectations about circumstances, events, or people that may affect a person’s behavior toward them in a manner that he or she (unknowingly) creates situations in which those expectations are fulfilled.
I never really thought that I was one to have them but recently I’ve noticed that I do make them, particularly in education. I have given up any hope to receive an A because I’ve accepted the fact that I am a B or maybe even a A- student. I’m average and I will never excel the way I see other people do all around me particularly in the business world.
It’s upsetting to see this. One of my friends was telling me how his girlfriend was bitching about needing a 100 on her final to save her grade and feeling hopeless. He says, “She needs to figure it out. I did. I figured out ways that would help me to well and which did not. If she really wants that grade she will work for it.” Thinking back on this now when finals are around the corner, I’ve calculated what grades I can get and even if I were to get 100s, there is no way of receiving an A. I’ve accepted it. I don’t know how to get out of this. I don’t know how to realize I am capable of better.
"You have so much potential, you just need to believe in yourself!"
I’ve just been all over the place and going home doesn’t seem to make anything better. After my hell week I think I burned out. Kind of just want to be alone…I don’t know. I just want to be able to focus on my priorities again. Literally the worst time right now.
