At the beginning of the school year, I created an academic goal this semester to obtain straight A’s. Last semester, to be completely honest was kind of easy for me and took advantage of it, which turned me into a MAJOR procrastinator.
I ended the school year with 3′ A’s and two high B’s. One of my academic goals this semester is to take the time to improve.
