English 100 Journal #2
After surviving a month on Professor Wilson’s English 100 class, I feel that I am getting comfortable with the course. We tapped on mapping essays and breaking them piece by piece to decipher its meaning. What I find difficult is that some people in the class understand the course very well and already have answers on their notes. Furthermore, these people just work and submit essays with ease. I find unfair that some people have that ability but, I think who am I kidding? I am new here. Trying to learn and understand a language of a foreign country, and desperately trying to cope up from the culture shock and the learning pace of these good people who welcomed us immigrants to such a diverse country. However, I should not make excuses about my learning curves and difficulties. In fact, I should be working hard just any other person in this world.
I was never adept with the English language. In the Philippines, we make English essays but the difficulty is not as hard as Canadian standards. I remember those times were life was slow and taken one step at a time. On the other hand, businesses were falling into deficit and are force to file bankruptcy. Here in Canada, you have to work very hard to achieve your desired output. That is why I always push myself towards perfection every single time even though it is not achievable.
Essays here, journals there, mapping fear and teachers; Fair.
In this English class, I think I should work harder and deliver some extra effort in the class. Also, I notice that I am getting weaker and may not be able to meet deadlines, but that is simply a thing that I cannot allow to intervene regarding meeting deadlines. Some people say that English is the easiest subject. Some say that Phys Ed is the way to go. Neither way is I not attuned to both of them. Furthermore, math, my affinity, is proving to give me a lot of pain and suffering lately. Sometimes I do not even know what to do with my classes. I am a desperate fool who lacks the piquant mind that he desires. This journal was actually a good idea where I can be myself and not judge by the haughty eyes of some people. As I finish this journal, I will make a promise to myself. “I will work hard in everything that I do and will not stop until I achieve my goals and endeavours”.
