Back when I was a child, in school I use to do very good, turned my homework in on time and I use to get good grades. One reason was because after school I always had to go to my tutors that my mother paid for me. I would get help if it was needed and also the school life in my country was very different. Also, back home with my family and my guardian, they always made sure that I memorized my lessons and done my homework. It’s when I got to the United States, I came into a different schooling style and I found new ways of studying and created all those systems of doing work.
I have a hard time concentrating on my homework and to get them done and passed in on time. I am the type of person that works better under pressure. Doing my homework last minute has a lot of stress. That’s the only way I’ll sit down and take time to do my homework and that’s the only way I’ll write a really good paper. Writing a good paper and getting a really good grade for it, is what’s more important to me.
I do want to change that about me because it sometimes causes for my homework to be late. Not only my homework is late at times, but I also tend to stress myself out much more than I should. Usually when I get too stress, I get severe headaches. However, sometimes I do manage to get them done at a certain time that is not last minute. It is not something that I am very good at, pushing myself to do homework.
I do have some conversations with my inner self about getting my homework done on time. Using Stewart’s theory, I can classify my inner child and inner adult conversing. It is like an adult talking to a child sometimes. That’s what it would be.
Adult – I have homework due Tuesday maybe I should get started on it tonight
Child – I just came from class I need to rest for a while then I’ll get up and get started on it
Adult – Now I’m up I should start my homework
Child – I need something to eat, let me get something to eat first then I’ll do the homework...
