  1. This week I triumphed by keeping up with all of my homework and even working ahead. When I knew I had a lot of homework to do in addition to chemistry, I would do all the other homework in my early study hall so that I would have time to do the chemistry in my late study hall and after school. Because I worked ahead when I knew homework would be assigned, I never had to continue to work after about 5 in the afternoon. It was really refreshing for me to be able to not worry about my homework after school, so I was able to relax and do whatever I want. Because of that, I didn’t really stress about anything, so I’m going to try to keep working ahead for the rest of the semester just like this week.

  2. This week I triumphed by completing all my homework at home. This week I accomplished all my homework at home for the first tim in a long time

  3. This week, I rate myself a 3 out of 5. Although I understood the book work and had no problems completing it, when we checked our answers, I got most of the math problems wrong. I need to practice more problems until I can get them right. I was not confused during the lab, and I had a lot of fun during it!

  4. One triumph I had this week was my scinece in the news. I started on it Sunday and was able to edit it and revise it throughout the week. By Thursday night all I had to do was draw the picture about the article. I wasn’t stressed out at all and was able to focus on my other homework making me more productive. I hope I continue to work ahead for the rest of the year.
