The kids are doing okay in school. I’ve witnessed how my daughter struggle to maintain her scholarship. She got 3.12 in final grades which is equivalent to superior. She said she will try her best to maintain or exceed her previous achievement for the second term.
My son, on the other hand, received this recognition from his adviser. Job well done kids. We are so proud of you both. With your determination I believe that both of you can reach your individual goals someday.
My daughter no longer needs to be told what to do during school days. Such a trait I always admire in her. She divides her time with her assignments, but at the same time, knows when to relax. Relaxing for this young lady means listening to her favorite songs from her MP3 player for long hours, in fact, she’s sleeping with those earphones (which I don’t really approve of).
To show our daughter how much we appreciate her and her dedication to her studies, hubby and I, try in every way we can to have the things that she needs. Last summer, we bought her a second-hand laptop so she can make her assignments and projects without being interrupted. The family shares one computer after my laptop gave up on me last year. The young lady was grateful that she has her own laptop. It’s not the high-end brand, but functions perfectly well.
For hubby and me, our children are the best gifts that we have ever received and as much as we can, we provide for them to the best of our abilities, or at least, the best that our hard-earned money can afford us.
Students take note. This is one of the important habits students should learn to develop if they wish to avoid cramming during examinations and submission of projects. This is pretty basic, students should know when assignments are due; label their things; and be an expert on any course requirements and due dates. It may be too technical to advise young students to clean pc, so for this one, they may hire an expert to do it for them.
Get organized info is one of the tips listed in the College Survival Tips brochure that my daughter received during an orientation earlier.
