Throughout these past four years, my high school career has been controlled by three difficulties. These difficulties although proved to be challenging, I was able to overcome them and am now able to move on with my high school career in order to reach my ultimate goal of graduating. These three difficulties that I have faced and are still facing today are math class, AP U.S History, and procrastinating.
In my junior year of high school I decided to take the class of AP U.S History. Although I knew this class would be hard I chose to take the plunge. Unfortunately I regretted it. The class is taught by Mr. Schaefer, who is a wonderful teacher and teaches the material very well, but the homework load proved to be quite heavy and the tests were difficult.

I studied for at least two hours every night a couple hours ahead of the actual test date. Even with this amount of studying I still only managed to pull off average test scores. Even though AP U.S history proved to be difficult class, I still enjoyed learning the material and from Mr. Schaefer.
Another challenge that I have faced throughout my high school career is going through my math classes every year. I have never been the best student when it comes to math class and I have to put forth more effort than I do in my other subjects.
During high school I have taken Geometry, Algebra II, FST, and I’m currently in PDM. Among these math classes FST proved to be the most difficult. When it comes to my math classes, I have to take good notes and go through constant repetition of the math problems so I can remember on how to work through the different problems. I first write down the example problems then while I’m working on my...
