Life Lessons in My Sophomore year as a Kinesiology Major in Community College.
December 5, 2018 (Update: Just completed finals for Fall 2018 whoop-whoop!!!)
- Initiate Learning: The human body is complex so don’t settle for taking a class and assume you know everything about it. Desire to learn more and grow beyond strictly being a student achieving a degree. In the long run that is what education is preparing you to be, an initiator, self starter, leader, researcher, detective and medical professional.
- Inquire More: Ask questions, remain active through the expansion of learning new concepts and broaden your horizons. First it shows your Professors/Mentors that you are humble and teachable as a new individual entering the field. Second it allows you to engage actively in the material, develop critical thinking skills, and become self confident in your own passion!!!
- Ignite your Why: As undergraduates the phrase is “oh this is just general education, so why try,” …. well is it really?? If this is irrelevant to your future then how do you expect to see long term progress from this basic level. You must be a beginner in order to become a novice and then later on a PHD. Every teacher was once taught by someone as knowledge is power, and when wielded is the strongest strategical base of support for your platform. “Start from the bottom, and you go 0 to 100 real quick.” (@Drake Reference)
