Grades are the grades.
When I think of grades, I get nervous. I hate dealing with them. I periodically ask
my teachers what my grades are. At my old school, they put our grades onto edline, so
we didn’t have to go to the teachers to ask what our grade were.
If I see myself slacking in a class, I will do whatever it takes to bring that grade
up. I also believe that your grades don’t lie. Everything that is on your report card reflects
how you have progressed in school. I always try my hardest to keep my grades up. If that
means I can’t go out with my friends or watch a football game on television, I will study
or do my homework.
When I get good grades, they always remind me of how much I worked to
receive that grade. Also, I always tell myself I have to do whatever it takes to get into my
dream college, University of Florida, home of the Florida Gators. This really motivates
me to push myself even more.
Also, grades could determine if I have to take the midterm or not. This would be
fantastic for me if I could get exempted from taking most of my midterms. I will need an
A average in my classes to be exempted from taking these test. It can take a lot of
pressure off me if I can achieve this goal of mine. This is why the grades are the grades.
