Evaulation Paper

1084 words - 5 pages

When I started college, I never thought I would be evaluating myself let alone for my English class. I was always the kind of person who just went with life and never thought about anything. I came to college and everything changed and I was finally able to think before I did something. I was able to evaluated myself as person, friend, roommate, and finally as a college student. Most people think of a college student as getting good grades and graduating with a degree, but there is a lot more than that. Personally, I am a good college student and I am willing to work hard for what I want.
In my world a good college student is a student who has a good health both physically and mentally. Most students tend to forget their health when they come to college and they invented something called the “freshman 15,” which means students tend to gain extra 15 pounds when they come to college because they forget to exercise. I avoided this by excising every day, play basketball which was fun for me and watching what I ate. The other problem I had to watch out for was stress. According to VanKim Nicole, and Toben F.Nelson who are from the division of Epidemiology and community health, school of public health reported that most teens who go to college “4,8%” said that they were experiencing “poor mental health and depression” due to things like tests and “social lives.” This is true even for me but I found ways to reduce this by either taking walks at night with some friends or just mediating by myself in a quiet room. This has helped me concentrate on school and my social life without become stressed out.
Although I can manage my health, the one thing I’m still struggling with is Education. When I say my education I don’t mean my grades, but rather my time management and how I handle my study time. Sometimes I do my homework at the last min even though this is not high school, I get distracted so I lose track of time. According to Cohen, Marisa author of The Importance of Self-Regulation for College Student Learning when it comes to college student “the ability to self-regulate is important for students… especially… those in college” because those student are have to worry about a lot of things “in a short span amount of time.” Being a self-regulator is one of those habits I can’t get down because I like to do things when I have time, on top of that I don’t plan my day out which makes me the worst Self-regulator both mentally and physically.
However, I am working on developing my “Self-regulation” skills as I started to a just to college. Recently, I bought a planner to help me schedule out my week and what is do in each class. Cohen described “self-regulation” as “self-generated thoughts, feelings, and actions for attaining one’s goal.” This makes sense because if I am to “Self-regulate” my college life, I must be able to organize my mind first and plan things out before I can move to my daily life. When I mediate my mind is clear and...
