Hello my name is Dakota Acuña I’m in 8th grader at Dobie Jr. High School and so far this year has been going okay. It hasn’t been the best but definitely hasn’t been the worst. One of my goals this year is to get better grades this year than last year because starting next year colleges are going to start looking at grades, extra-curricular activities, and stuff like that.
Another one of my goals is to focus more on school than I did last year. Last year I would go hangout with my friends before I got any of my school work done. We would just go to the pool or walk to the park or hangout at their house or my house and I would “forget” about my homework. I would also make the excuse that I would do it in cougar time or at lunch but i never did because I was always too busy then.
One of my other goal is to use my phone less because my friends are saying that I’m on it too much. But that one might not happen because what teenager isn’t on their phone 24 7 I don’t know one that’s not. Another is to manage my time. Try not to spend too much time in the hallway talking to my friends to were im late. Try to actually take my time on my homework. Try to take my time on projects.
