    After Graduate School, I hope to have my PhD in psychology or my doctorate in psychiatry. I would like to start out working in jails, talking to criminals and analyzing their brains versus the brain of an average adult to study how the brain reacts with criminal activity and why they do and feel what they do. I have heard that a person can not do that type of work for very long because it is emotionally tasking so after that, I would like to open my own counseling practice up. I would do either marriage and family therapy or focus on teenage depression. Eventually, I would like to retire into school psychology or become a psychology teacher. Also, if I ever have enough money, I will buy a house devoted to taking in stray animals…

    “Goal setting is a key to achieving success in any endeavor. It is very complex to know where one is going if one does not know where to go. Everyone needs goals to be enthused, grow or increase performance especially with strong goals.” One goal that I’ve started 2nd semester is to improve my work ethic even more than before, to be able to earn high honors by the end of my junior year. I also will try to involve myself in any activities that I can, both academically and socially, so that, again, I can graduate with honors. The reason why I do this is because I plan on going to college, and I would like to be able to get accepted into any school that I apply to.…

    Originally, as seen in the annotated bibliography, (as seen in Appendix A) I planned to do a weekly plan of all the tasks that I had to complete that week (as seen in Figure two). However, I quickly realised, I did not flexibility with this approach, my weeks became extremely tedious and repetitive, which ultimately meant that I would not follow the plan. I instead developed the aforementioned daily plan which gave me more flexibility, as day by day, I could develop the plan in association with what needs to be done. As some mind numbing tasks have an effect on a person, it meant that I was also able to accommodate to what I was mentally able to do that day. I did however, maintain the colour scheme, and the layout of the original learning plan, which meant it was easy to see what types of tasks needed to be completed (as seen in figure one),…

    Throughout all my years as a high school student, I aspired to do something extremely beneficial to my community. Volunteering here and there for various clubs did not fulfill this ambition.

The objectives include assisting the disadvantaged, benefiting higher level organizations, and expanding the reputation of music education.…
