There are subjects in school
that I really like, and ones that I find unlikable. There is one particular
subject that from the start, I found irrelevant. I didn’t take it seriously.
I took it for granted. To me, it was somewhat useless. I didn’t know the
reason why we took up such topics in class. So, I didn’t exert much effort
in learning the topics taught in that subject during the 1st quarter.
When I received my 1st quarter grades, I realized that I was completely
wrong about my view of the lessons discussed in class. I realized that
I must take it seriously and I shouldn’t take it for granted.
In the 2nd quarter, realizing my mistake, I began to do the lesson activities,
this time seriously and for a purpose. To my surprise, I accomplished
almost all of my unfinished activities in the 2nd quarter. Because of
my extra effort and personal motivation, I finished 6 straight activities
(3 to 9) plus, the additional point project. I really felt lucky and thankful
at the same time.
I guess the best lesson I learned from this experience is to be hopeful
and to plan ahead. At one point in the 2nd quarter, I really thought I
had no chance in submitting my activities but, little did I know that
I could do 6 activities straight, plus the additional point project. As
for planning ahead, I learned that before doing an activity, knowing and
understanding the tasks and objectives on hand is important in completing
projects and activities. You can’t just do an activity using the "bara-bara" method.
I’m thankful that I’ve experienced these events and changes because I
end up learning important lessons in life.
