You can expect me to give an honest evaluation of my progress. We will discuss my strengths and opportunities for growth. Thank you in advance for listening and offering feedback that I can improve as a learner. Hi and welcome to my last M-pol as I am done half of my last year here at Seycove it has been a lot of mixed emotions from not thinking I am ready to graduate and live on my own. To committing to Okanagon college to play baseball and study to business to now feeling ready and wanting to start the next chapter of my life. At the beginning of the year I know I really wanted to have a great last year at Seycove, looking back from grade 8 me to grade 12 me has been a crazy change from maturing a lot and I mean a lot. I think PLP has shaped me to the person I am today and has taught me so many valuable lessons. Biggest one is going into grade 8 I hated math like I hated every second of it. But PLP has taught me to stick with your challenges and problems. I fully believe PLP is one of the biggest reasons why I give 100% in everything I do. Over these past couple months I have been able to achieve my dream of playing baseball at the university level. With a lot of hard work in baseball but also in school. Something that will stick with me for next year at university and probably the rest of my life is hard work beats talent.
The first thing I want to talk about is something I have improved on this year and that is talking more in the class and in class discussions. This is something I have really struggled with throughout my years in high school. I think it’s mostly because I think my classmates won’t take me seriously or will think it’s stupid and I am not much of a person to really care if someone thinks what I say is stupid, so I have made a conscious effort to talk more in class and express my opinion. I have tried to improve my habits in class such as being more engaged and being more involved. I think I got more work to do still but I have came a long way.
This next semester I am going to work very hard on getting ready for university as it is fast approaching. I want to get my study habits better over the next couple months and with pre calc next semester I am really going to be on top of all my classes.
A project I am really proud of and thought I did well in was definitely our movie project Monster in the mirror I took a 2 big roles in the project even though I wanted to challenge myself and be one of the 3 big roles I was really happy with how I performed in the project. I still believe I had some really cool visions and ideas that I think could have been really cool to see put to life but I felt like I wasn’t listened to as much as I would have liked. But I took on a main actor role along as being a assistant director. I think in the past I would have shyed away from a role like this in a big class project, so this shows definitely how far I have came. I was really interested in the horror movies and learning about horror movies so this was definitely project I am very proud of. I want to reflect on my writing every year I go to talk about this but it’s something I am going to be working on my whole life. I think my creative and getting my ideas and showing my work has gotten a lot better this year but I need to now just get the grammar part down to become the writer I want to become in the future. I am now getting my mom to look over and edit my paragraphs and essays before I submit them and it’s been very useful as well. IMG_0719
The last thing I want to talk about is how much I have matured with my public speaking when you remember my first M-Pol I was shaking and couldn’t stop moving was just a little boy but now I am up here with confidence at my last M-Pol like it’s just another day and I would like to say thank you to my family and PLP teachers because I have came along way and couldn’t be happier with the person I am today.
I have taken school a lot more seriously this year as I prepare myself to become an adult and go into the world and post secondary. I have a lot more to achieve in this world and improve on and when I graduate something I am going to definitely take with me is we are not perfect we are all going to make mistakes. But if your working in yourself and being the best you can be that’s all that matters. My time at Seycove has been amazing and I can’t wait to continue to learn and have a great last couple months before I start the next chapter of my life. Thank you for listening to my last M-Pol any questions.
