This week I learned how it’s important as a student to have “project work time” or just individual time because it prepares you for the long run to be an independent person, be organized, and helps improve your responsibility. I prefer having work time because I feel like I have improved at staying in task and using my time wisely to finish the work I need done on time. I think it’s very useful for everyone in many aspects, but some peers are still working on it because they won’t be on task the whole time.
Also March 8th was international women's day, this was the first “walkout” I have ever done which was super cool. I never knew how many people around us face the difficulties of women struggling to obtain. Many people shared about their appearance or the way they are as people, the actions they makes and how they were shamed on because that wasn’t how women were “supposed” to be, whatever they did was not filling the ideals of how they “need” to look like. It was shocking to me how these things could really affect us because there was many people emotional at this walkout, or I guess you could call it celebration. But it was so refreshing and empowering seeing all of the women who performed or spoke because they were all unique and made me feel happy of being a women myself.
March 10th, I took the SAT Saturday morning at High Tech High. This was such a big positive because I felt comfortable in the environment and with the people because they were mostly my peers and friends. I think it went pretty good, I felt super energized because I slept very early the night before and got a full 8 hours of sleep with is quite rare. Only tip I have is don’t drink a bunch of water in the middle of the test because I needed to go to the bathroom halfway when there was no breaks given, and we were doing the final part of the test which was the essay, so I could barely concentrate. Other than that, I think it went super well and I definitely felt like I improved in the math portion of the test which felt so good!
