Now that I have pulled myself together and feel motivated towards school again, I know that I will need to make changes.
This includes studying every single day. A few hours at the very least. It NEEDS to happen as I NEED to get A’s.
I need to figure out how to be more approachable… I feel like I have chronic bitch face and it definitely doesn’t help in making friends 😦 I have people tell me that I look intimidating because I look so serious. On the first day of classes, I try to not look so serious and smile a little bit at the people coming in. But I feel like such a dumbass and that doesn’t even work lol.
I do have a serious personality just because I am pretty shy.. I’m not shy once I open up but I am initially shy. I don’t know how to combat this!
That is a BIG issue that I need to fix because if I apply to the program I want to, obviously they want someone that has a lot of confidence and that stands out. I feel that I probably don’t currently stand out.
I also need to be more approachable because I need to try to get these two professors for the classes I’m going to take to give me letters of recommendation. The other professors like I didn’t try to make good impressions on them so I know I was forgettable and there is no reason why they would recommend me. I read online that I just need to come into their office for study hours often and make an effort to know my shit and participate in class.
Does anyone have any suggestions in regards to being more approachable though?
No one wants a dentist that doesn’t initially seem friendly and approachable…
Anyway those are my things that I’ve been thinking about. I know that I got the grades I got because of bad choices I made. Yes, I went through a lot. But I did not try my hardest. I did the bare minimum. This cannot keep being my pattern and I need to change this if I am to be in a professional program.
I’ve been watching videos on how to manage your time and how to study better… I will try to incorporate these into my life.
So, yeah! Wish me luck! and please give me any tips or suggestions that you may have!
