I understand that things have been going wrong with me since the beginning and I admit that the sense of responsibility that I exerted was not good enough to pass my previous three semesters. I regret that I was not able to do my part as needed and expected. It was not in my conscious knowledge that I was on the wrong path without realizing the consequences that it may bring like what I am experiencing right now. In full honesty, I was really exerting effort that was needed to pass; however, I did not realize that there were a lot of things that I need to change for me to be able to make it enough if not more than enough to meet your expectations.
Promises were made, but as a result it clearly showed that not all of those promises were kept. This time, I am not going to make any promises saying that I will pass and make it through because this time, I can assure you that no challenges can stop me from passing this time. This guarantee that I am giving you is more than the promises that I did not successfully keep.
I am not writing this just because I am asking for another chance, what I am expressing is my deepest passion to let you know that my student life in Farleigh Dickson University is an essential part of my growth not just as a person, but as a future professional as well. My reflection made me think that my future depends on my actions; hence, my good foundation starts in FDU. If a normal person lives his everyday life with food, shelter, and water, then I am adding my FDU life as part of my everyday living. I am saying this to show how passionate I am in finishing my studies and achieving my goals to the point that I need to have it as part of me.
I spent hours reflecting on the things and promises that I made before. It made me realize that waking up early to avoid being late is not enough, but rather having an advance study the night before to make myself more prepared once I get into the classroom. One thing I have learned in managing my time is – “being early is on time and being on time is late”. With my new attitude towards time handling, I can guarantee that there would be no way for me to be late for my class. In fact, I have been exercising this mindset every morning I wake up.
Regarding my attendance, I am clearly aware that it went so bad that it affected my performance as a student. I was wrong when I thought that I could cope with my lectures even if my attendance is not complete. I then realized that being punctual is not just being early, but being always present counts more. And, I thought, “How will I be able to learn lectures in school if I’m not there?” So I made this plan in preparation for this semester; spend more time having an advance study to make it easier for me to participate in the class along with the checklist that needs to be studied for the week, continue with my new time handling to avoid lateness, prepare myself for lecture participation, make sure to have a better relationship with my classmates and study partners so we can help each other, I will ensure to ask more questions to my professor regarding our lectures until I absorb essential knowledge, and most importantly, a pledge that my attendance will be perfect.
I can guarantee that these plans will be well executed accordingly. Also, I will pay my tuition on time and make sure that it will not be put on waste to be more practical. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. I am hoping that I will still be part of Farleigh Dickson University through your kind consideration.
