Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending my cousin’s graduation from Dartmouth. After 4 years of hard work, he was graduating with a degree in entrepreneurship. It was a great experience, and one I couldn’t ever forget. The afterparty was really enjoyable. Overall, I had a great time.
Its pretty much the end of the year, but one thing i’ve been thinking about lately is school start times. A few years back, I wrote a paper about the controversial issue of when school should start. Many people believe that the amount of time a student is in school is a direct factor in how much knowledge they retain. The truth however, is that early start times leave students tired, unfocused, and even unmotivated. If schools were to start later, students would be able to get the amount of sleep necessary to be successful and motivated. The issue is one that may come with many benefits and disadvantages, but its definitely a question that should be asked.
For the past few weekends, I’ve had driving school either Saturday or Sunday for roughly 7 hours a day. It was a lot of work and a lot of studying, but I think i am going to finally go for my permit exam this week. Driving school, although it took a lot of time and work, gives a lot of benefits including an insurance bonus. Overall, it was a good experience that left me much more knowledgeable and confident about the rules of the road. Despite the fact that driving school can be pricey, it makes the tasks needed to get a licence a lot easier to complete. Overall, happy it’s all done. It took a lot of time and work, but now i’m that much more confident and prepared for my permit exam and my licence exam.
Across his life, my little brother always seemed to be captivated by pandas. I never really knew what he found so interesting about them, until i decided to do a little research. Pandas have a lot more interesting qualities than what meets the eye. In fact, pandas actually have no fingerprints. In addition to this, they are actually one of the more deadly species of bear. They may look cuddly and cute, but they are actually ferocious predators that will do anything and everything to protect their young. After many years of near extinction due to poaching, the panda population is on the rise again. Overall, pandas are a very interesting member of the bear family. They are a lot more than just cute and cuddly looking.
With the end of the semester approaching, there’s a lot of chaos surrounding final papers and exams. This time of year can be one filled with both stress and excitement. The year is coming to an end and everyone’s just about ready to go on vacation. At the same time however, there’s a final push to complete papers and exams. For me personally, I had to complete 3 final papers and one final exam. Its definitely a process, but it’s one that comes with the reward of a long and relaxing summer. Keeping that in mind makes it feel like you’re working towards a reward. Soon enough, you’ll be enjoying the sun with the waves crashing at your feet.
