I did the priority list and it was really helpful.I followed my list in the order that I wrote it ,and it really did help me to stay on track.Every time I got off track I looked at my list and did it the way I wrote it.I also simplified things for me.I am glad that I actually followed through with it.

I wanted to be an actress ever since I can remember. My mother put me in the Barbizon acting school I would do great until I had to perform no matter how much I prepared I would freeze up on the performance night. No matter how many extra classes my mother enrolled me in the same thing would happen.

I have experienced this first hand in my own life. My son was 18 and had just graduated from high school all his life as far back as I could remember he wanted to be a marine, he worked hard at training to be a marine  one month before he was to enlist he went to the catfish festival. My son was shot multiple times with a 45 his hard work and dreams came to an end .The Doctor told him that he would never be able to be a marine before he got shot he was bench pressing 350lbs.After having most of his stomach removed and kidney and liver problems I watched a totally different person come home with me. The person that did this to my son was only 16 years old. He had never seen my son he shot a gun into a crowd of  people ending a life long dream for one.

I truly enjoy reading,but I tend to rush through a book.I also tend to fixate on a word or phrase.I now know that I need to change the way I read.I need to look up words that I do not know the meaning of instead of guessing what the words mean.I need to slow down and take breaks.I need to do this so that I can remember what I've read.I think this will help me with my test.I will also use my highlighter to highlight important passages.I feel these changes are important to my career and will better prepare me for exams.
