As I reflect upon this semester, I realized that I could have lived it differently. For those who went to Adams PA you know about the feeling you get when you go from begin at the top and then straight to the bottom. You start to feel like you don’t belong. Well, for me I had the feeling of not belonged at Michigan, and no I was not taking organic chemistry, but my grades still reflected something of a horror scene. I’ve never until Michigan gotten anything lower than a b-. English 125 kicked my ass and I can say that I’m most proud of my last essay. Not only did I receive a high b on this past essay, but I earned my professors respect. She could see that I worked my ass off and it came through in my writing. As I look back at the letter I wrote to myself I can see that for the future all I need to do is try my hardest. Although, it might sound cliche, its the motto I shall live by.
