Instead, being a Sophomore means knowing enough to start your focus on college and/or your career path after high school. Being a 10th grader means taking things a little more seriously while being more comfortable in your surroundings.
You're Not the Little Fish Anymore
Freshman Year is over! Thank goodness, right? You've gotten through one hurdle of high school. You know where everything is now. You're familiar with the teachers. You understand who the Queen Bees are, and you've found your group of friends that will probably be by your side over the next few years. What's nice is that, while you're still an underclassman, you have freshmen that are looking up to you this time around. It also means a little more responsibility to show those Christian values and lend a helping hand to the new kids who don't know how to get from the gym to room 202. Put yourself back in their shoes, just for a little bit, and remember how someone lent you a helping hand. Or if they didn't, remember how it made you feel.
Classes Get a Bit Harder
Now that you're a sophomore, teachers no longer baby you. You'll be expected to do more work and take more responsibility. It's expected that you built up your study skills during your freshman year that you can now take and hone during your sophomore year. The amount of homework goes up, and the classes get even more challenging. It's also your chance to make up for any mistakes you made during your freshman year. Maybe you struggled during 9th grade as you settled in. Now that you feel more comfortable, you can start thinking about building back up your GPA.
The PSAT/Pre-ACT
One of the biggest obstacles of your high school career will be taking the SAT and/or ACT. Some students take only one, but others will take both. If you're planning to go to college, these tests are pretty much mandatory, and they are weighted pretty heavily in admission decisions. The best way to improve your testing abilities is to take the pre-SAT and/or pre-ACT tests. It's important to learn this year the exam study skills that will help you focus. In the PSAT and pre-ACT classes available, you learn the components of the exams and how you can improve your testing skills. Taking the tests and the classes may not guarantee you a better score, but they certainly help many students stay focused.
Choosing Electives Begins to Matter
When you're a sophomore, electives begin to matter more to you both in honing your interests while also doing what will look good on college applications. Suddenly it seems like you're not choosing electives just to have fun, but instead to get into the places you want to go. Be careful here, though. You still want to enjoy high school, so even if you're doing after-school activities that you think matter, you should actually like doing them.
College Becomes a Real Thought
Suddenly your sophomore year becomes about thinking forward to college. You start to think first if you want to go to college. If you don't, what will you do? Then it becomes what college you want to go to. You know you have some time to decide where you're going, sure, but the thoughts start to seep in during this year.
You Get Behind the Wheel
Some sophomores are lucky enough to turn 16 during first semester, but most will turn driving age by the end of the school year. While there is all this anxiety mounting about the college talk, this is the year that you will likely get your driver's license. It's an exciting rite of passage for most high school students, and one of the scariest times for your parents (so cut them a little slack when they worry).…...

...areer Goals My career goals are to attain a career where I can express my communication and typing skills and passion for law as well as open my mind in ways that I could never do at any other career. To obtain these goals, I must set a track meaning I just am determined and willing to sacrifice my time. After considering many other career opportunities such as accountant, even attempting to obtain a job at the pharmacy, and looking into various other paralegal colleges, to make a few. I have found that The College of The Bahamas has just the programs, I'm looking for and just what I need to be successful at my goals. The reason I chose to be a paralegal is because it has been a lifelong dream of mine to out my knowledge of the law to good use. From an early age I was greatly interested in mystery novels and law shows. My favorite show has been “Law and Order “since the age of eleven, shows like these planted the idea of being a lawyer in the back of my mind. Another reason I want to be a paralegal is because the work is exciting, varied and intellectually stimulating, so I'm sure never to get bored, and the year old boy in me can pretend I be an episode on “Law and Order". Going to college can help me with my aspirations. With this experience, I can gain a career I'll love for the rest of my life. I would be eligible to work at any popular law firms and companies I have drawn interest for, for many years, using...

Huh Wtf

...A colleague tells the following story. A student in an undergraduate course recently submitted a truly first-rate term paper. In form, it was extremely well crafted, exhibiting a level of writing far beyond the typical undergraduate. In substance, it did a superb job of analyzing the text and offered a number of trenchant insights. It was clearly A-level work. There was only one problem: It markedly exceeded the quality of any other assignment the student had submitted all semester. The instructor suspected foul play. She used several plagiarism-detection programs to determine if the student had cut and pasted text from another source, but each of these searches turned up nothing. So she decided to confront the student. She asked him point blank, "Did you write this, or did someone else write it for you?" The student immediately confessed. He had purchased the custom-written paper from an online essay-writing service. The teacher believed this conduct represented a serious breach of academic ethics. The student had submitted an essay written by someone else as his own. He had not indicated that he hadn't written it. He hadn't given any credit to the essay's true author, whose name he did not know. And he was prepared to accept credit for both the essay and the course, despite the fact that he had not done the required work. The instructor severely admonished the student and gave him an F for the assignment. But the roots of this problem go far deeper than an......

Huh Whats This

...Work-Life Balance Work-life balance is a term which includes the proper prioritizing between the working life such as career and ambition, and lifestyle such as family, leisure, health and spiritual development. It is also very important to employee job satisfaction as most companies today are having difficulties to attract and retain their workers especially in the Millennial and Y generations. It is largely due to the dissatisfaction towards the lack of work-life balance as they prefers flexibility in where, when and how they work, even to the stage where they are willing to have a pay cut or forgo a promotion in order to manage their work-life demands better (Schulte, 2015). Therefore, it is necessary for the organizations to provide support to their employees such as flexible working arrangements, dependent care and personal or family leave in order to retain and attract their workers. Besides that, lack of work-life balance provided by the organization will also affect the company itself as employees who are constantly attached to their jobs would deal with the symptoms of burnout and stress and more likely to suffer health problems which then appears to take sick leaves more often, and less efficient, less sociable and overall harder to work with. Therefore, it is best for the both employer and employee to avoid such factors through smart human resource management, as with most things in life, moderation is key to success (Boundless, 2015). There are......

Now, whether it be Bestial oblivion, or some craven scruple Of thinking too precisely on the event, A thought which, quarter'd, hath but one part wisdom And ever three parts coward, I do not know Why yet I live to say 'This thing's to do;' Sith I have cause and will and strength and means To do't.

Rightly to be great Is not to stir without great argument, But greatly to find quarrel in a straw When honour's at the stake. How stand I then, That have a father kill'd, a mother stain'd, Excitements of my reason and my blood, And let all sleep, while, to my shame, I see The imminent death of twenty thousand men, That, for a fantasy and trick of fame, Go to their graves like beds, fight for a plot Whereon the numbers cannot try the cause, Which is not tomb enough and continent To hide the slain?

Pharmaceutical Advertising

...Effective advertising and marketing should promote a product that gains the interest of an individual without question. Advertising, mainly in the form of pharmaceuticals should not be misleading and should not insinuate that common occurrences produce a medical problem. The History of DTC Marketing Originating in the 18th and 19th century, DTC marketing deluded consumers through misleading and falsified advertising. Moving on into the 20th century, “pharmaceutical ads accounted for nearly half of newspapers’ advertising revenue” (Huh, DeLorme, Reid, & Soontae, 2010, para. 3). The Pure Food and Drug Act became a law in 1906 in which Congress placed regulations in relation to advertising. However, the law was amended in 1938 placing stipulations on medications stating that they have to be approved prior to marketing. “Prior to 1962, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) had jurisdiction over advertising, including prescription drug advertising” (Huh et al, 2010, para. 6). Currently the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the governing body of prescription drug advertising, and the FTC is authority for over-the-counter drug advertising. Pharmaceutical Advertising and the Consumer Pharmaceutical advertising occurs everywhere. Advertising signs are on every street corner and more often a new ad seems to appear on TV every day. Frustrating enough, these drug companies find a way to develop a medication and promote an ad for almost every ailment possible. For example, if a......
