-I am really enjoying what we do in this class. I know it might not seem like it considering I often struggle to understand how to do the projects, I am often late to class and have also missed a few, but I do enjoy the projects we work on. I wish I could get the projects done early so that I do not have to worry about them the day they are due, but I have caught myself into a cycle that I cannot seem to get out of. My whole life I have been a procrastinator. It has always been a problem for me. I thought that when I started college that I could make that trait in me go away, but it seems to have gotten worse. It doesn'​t matter how hard or long I work on homework, I can never seem to catch up. I am always turning things in the last minute, or a few moments late. I do try to get everything done on time, but I think I have overwhelmed myself with homework the past few years. What I think I may need is some time off from homework and school in general. I think that that would give me time to think about exactly what I want out of life, and how to get there. As long as I am in school, and in this class, I will still continue to do my work to the best of my ability, an try my hardest to turn it in on time. But the time may come that I remove myself from school. I originally wanted to take a year off and I did a lot of research saying that the kids who do, tend to do better in life because they got life experience earlier, and got to think about what they wanted to do with their life, without having to also focus on high school classes. If I decided that this is what I want to do, I would take it seriously, and really think about all of my options. That may include returning to school in the following years. I am a very creative person, so I have no doubt that engineering could be a very possible career path for me, but at this moment in time, I don't know if I am the one who chose to do engineering,​ or the people around me. In high school, everyone is rushed to pick what they want to do with the rest of their lives, yet are told that they are not old enough to make decisions about other things in their lives. I think it is wise to take a year or two off from school to work and think about that decision. I realize many people never return back to school, but I have faith in myself that if I decide to leave school, I can make the decision later on to come back to school if I decide that is what I want. I don't like to be rushed when it comes to making decisions, especially big ones that involve spending a lot of money. That is one of the reasons, amongst others, that I chose Corning Community College. I realize people may be unhappy with the decision that I come too, but ultimately, it is my decision. I am the one who has to pay for it, and I am the one  who has to live with that decision for the rest of my life. I know that I got off the topic of this specific class, but I felt it was important to get out. I also feel like it is important to state that if I am to leave, it has nothing to do with this class, or really any class in particular. I really enjoy this class a lot and I think the content we learn in this class is something I would still consider learning outside of this class. If I do make the decision to leave, I will still consider engineering as a career, as well ass possibly returning to Corning Community College. As of right now, I am just not sure that this is exactly where I am supposed to be.+I am really enjoying what we do in this class.
