This course offered here at Drexel University allows us to do exactly that. Over the years, have come to realize some of my own flaws and mistakes that have kept me from performing to the best of my ability and succeed academically. The quarter system at Drexel really requires us to be on top of our game. I have always made sure to keep up my attendance for all classes including lectures where attendance is not mandatory. However, when it comes to preparation I haven’t exactly been up to the mark.
Being a procrastinator all my life, I have had serious issues completing an assignment beforehand instead of stressing over it last minute. Time management is hat it takes to overcome this problem and it was one of my major New Year’s resolutions this year to manage my time and schedule efficiently to finish tasks beforehand. This not only takes away the stress working on an assignment last minute, but also allows for more free and leisure time. Next in line would be my dedication to my academics.

But coming from another country, I wish to master the art of combination skills in the American culture. This is reason I eagerly took a communications course this term, specifically ‘techniques of peaking. I have found this class to be very interesting as I have already learned a few simple things that I was not aware of before but have been doing all my life.
Like for example, the handshake. It is so important because that is how you identify yourself to a person you just met and the way you hold the other person’s hand, your facial expression, etc. , all matters so much because the new person you just met does not know anything about you and it is the only thing for his basis in judging you. In order to keep track of my progress I have started writing in a planner, meeting I never really got into the habit of doing but now have come to realize the importance of.
