Blog Post 6

One thing about this class and all college classes is paying attention to detail. It's very important to read all the directions on an assignment before turning it in. I have had difficulties with this, sometimes I just do the basic parts of an assignment and don't do the smaller, more detailed part of an assignment. This affects my grades. It sucks to do the majority of the work and do it well and not get as much credit that is deserved simply because of not doing the smaller parts of an assignment. Keeping up with due dates and getting everything in on time can be difficult as well. Assignments can snowball if they are not turned in on time. It can throw everything out of whack and mess up your schooling. I'm trying to get better at keeping up with assignments and turning them in on time. I think the biggest difference in college to high school is that you don’t have someone breathing down your neck every day about getting your work turned in and done. College is a lot more independent. I definitely think that for college to be mastered you have to take control of your courses from the start to keep your work from snowballing on you.


  1. I have had a similar problem, not totally and thoroughly reading the directions can get you every time. For example like in this course, if you do not conquer the entire assignment your work is counted as not completed. Consequently, your grade will be negatively affected!

  2. I agree with you totally I to have this problem to and I had to step back and take control of all of my class work and basically get my ass on the ball and basically grow the hell up .

  3. Man I know exactly were you are coming from. In high school I just did the important things to get by. I know that I am smart I just never applied myself. I do hate when I thought I did such a great job and turns out I missed something. I did have a problem this semester with the blog post memo. I forgot to do the questions because I never saw them. I just drilled out my post and forgot about my questions. So I know exactly where you are coming from.
