This is my first semester of college here at Leech Lake Tribal College; and of the many required core classes I have, one of them was Pathways to Success. I found that I was surprised at all of the topics we covered and how in depth it turned out to be. I feel that when I reflect on the course that I really did learn a good amount of useful things that I can build upon and also utilize in the future.

One of the very useful things I learned about was responsible and practical knowledge on budgeting and time management. I learned that it is best to keep track of the needs and the wants in a budget in order to get the most out of it. Things like personal needs must take precedent over recreational and entertainment needs; like purchasing music and movies online or buying that new shade of lip stain. As an adult we all must learn that food and keeping the water heater in working and safe condition are obviously more important. Because; in the long run, when we are all hopefully doing well in careers or have better jobs because of the help of our educations; we can spend our money wisely and live more comfortable and content lives.

Another thing that goes hand in hand with success is good time management. I found that I myself am terrible with my time management and am a text book procrastinator. I learned that there are simple ways we can all better manage time; and, that once you get comfortable with the routine of having a schedule that you really are getting more productive hours in your day. Also it allows you to feel more in control of your daily life; by taking away some of the stress of deadlines, and being able to meet them because you allowed yourself the time to meet them.

Among other things that I learned which I feel will benefit me in college are study skills. I learned that it is okay to ask for help, that there are many resources besides the internet to help with research for assignments, and that Wikipedia is not an academic source; who knew! I also came to the conclusion that waiting until the last minute to finish an assignment is not only stressful; but it is irresponsible as well. If you have only a few hours to do an assignment then you are most likely not going to complete it to the best of your abilities and are only letting yourself down by risking a bad grade. The study skills I learned have proved to be invaluable to me and I hope to utilize them much better in my upcoming spring semester. Other than study skills, I learned about what my personal learning style is. I learn best visually and am also a tactile learner, I benefit from things like videos and taking precise notes. I believe I am one of...
