I stare at this until I believe it.
I am starting to majorly doubt my intelligence.
Early African History Course
Quiz 1- 100%
Test1- ? (but I know I did horrible)
Liberal Arts Seminar (Critical and Analytical Writing Class)
Essay 1- 75% (most depressing thing so far)
Receiving that grade brought my spirit down. I never felt so awful because I desperately want a perfect or close to perfect GPA. Also, the fact that I have been told that I was a fantastic writer is know a lie. :(
I am going to try to pick myself up of the ground that my professor throw me on.
I prayed this day wouldn’t come that I will have to employ a new study method for college. My study methods that landed me 2 great high school years of excellent grades and took years to discover.
Luckily, I am taking summer classes, living in a dorm, and doing the college thing before the start of my first year this fall. I have a sense of what I need to alter and eliminate from my past study methods.
Here are my obstacles…
The list will get longer at the start of the fall semester.
I am trying to experiment with study tactics before the fall in which I change my methods each week and self-evaluate based on grades and performance in class.
I will inform you guys on the results and the best way to achieve a A+ in college as a first year (freshman).
All-nighters might seem unavoidable. During my first week of summer college classes and life, I have noticed that staying up all night trying to complete homework is the culture.
I compared my academic and social performance (social life is essential for college students) after an all-nighter and a full night of rest.
After a Full Night of Sleep
Unfortunately, I broke my new Macbook but got a new one with the help of insurance. Sadly, my parents find me “irresponsible.”
It’s crazy, right. All of my friends find me extremely organized and etc. Some how I am viewed completely different in my parents’ eyes. I have always been clumsy. I use to walk into walls, tripover my on feet, and fall into pools. I guess when it comes to expensive things it’s a different story.
HELP! I have butter fingers and I can’t stop breaking things.
Do anyone have any advise on how to protect my devices besides using covers?
Oh my god…this is so me during class.
I, finally, finished packing for my 5 week summer classes at my university. I will take pictures of my packing methods, and explain what are in certain bags and luggage.
It took 2 days to write a complete list of necessities, organize the list into type of packaging, and then put into action. Anyway, I am excited to share my methods.
Richard Haste, an NYPD officer, killed an unarmed black teen (Ramarley Graham) in front of his grandmother and 6-year-old brother at point blank range over marijuana. The landlady, Paulet Minzie, 55, ran out the shower with only a towel after hearing the gunshots. Officers then put a gun to her head and told her to put her hands up. It wasn’t until she told them that there were cameras surveilling them, that they put their guns down.
Court papers say “[He\] immediately lowered his weapon. His demeanor completely changed, and he alerted his colleague that they may be on camera,”. The footage later revealed that Graham walked calmly to his apartment followed by police barging in without a warrant, contradicting the officers original claim that the teenager was running away from him.

Haste was freed on $50,000 bail yesterday after pleading not guilty. Police cheered for him as the parents of Graham wept in the court room.
I am beyond disgusted.
WHAT THE FUCK
