College life is a big transition from school life. We go through a lot of changes when we enter college. Our schools were a safe place where we had grown up and spent half our lives. The transition to college is so sudden that you’re no longer protected by your teachers and friends of my school time.College life poses a lot of challenges in front of me.I am  now in a place that have a full of unfamiliar faces where you need to mingle in. It teaches me to socialize and form opinions of our own. In college, students learn their free will and they go on to become more confident and composed.In school life, we were always dependant on our friends or teachers. College life teaches us to be independent. It makes us stronger and teaches us to fight our own battles. It also makes us serious about our careers. We make decisions that will affect our future all by ourselves, as in school life our parents did it for us.Additionally, in schools, we viewed our teachers as our mentors and sometimes even parents. We respected them and kept a distance. However, in college life, the teacher-student relationship becomes a bit informal. They become more or less like our friends and we share our troubles and happiness with them as we did with our friends.

There are not enough people willing to put their health on the line for what are essentially poverty wages for a family of four or more, to care for and possibly educate other peoples’ children as substitute teachers

Our economy shut down when schools shut down. It became more visible how schools serve as community centers for social services including access to food, to child care, to health services, along with their primary mission of leading students to learn to read, write, solve mathematical problems, investigate like scientists and to become our future citizens.

Getting ready for a new school year is always a challenge, even under normal circumstances. But the challenge this year is beyond unprecedented. It is unimaginable. Administrators, teachers and maintenance staffs are being overwhelmed by the new and still-changing requirements, even as they struggle with difficult personal decisions about exposure and risk.

Instead of beating myself up and blaming the test, the professor, or the course for my performance on an exam, I would own up to my performance and think about how my study habits or techniques might have affected that score

I guess the main takeaway of this story is that there are so many useful academic resources at UCLA, and it is up to us students to take advantage of them as much as possible.

If you are catching me for the first time. ( I think I had 8 people looking at this blog before I abandoned it last year due to life) you will see from other posts I usually share a free idea or resource then say “This is how I would teach it.” So this post is just dipping my toe back into the biosphere after being too overwhelmed to keep up. Please share if you can. More users always helps keep me going!

Its summer 2019. I don’t even know when I touched this blog last. I created it because I hate pay to play teacher sites.

until it’s impossible to deny .

Social values have demised, and it’s lovely to witness a consciousness

that aligns itself with a return to unity .
