Change Your Life

However, if some part of your life doesn’t feel right – change it.”

-Phylis Fagrelius

For my eighteenth birthday my mother asked family and friends to send letters to me containing love and words of advice for the future. My fifth grade teacher sent me one of these letters. While reading it, one particular part caught my eye; the quote above. “However, if some part of your life doesn’t feel right – change it.”

But after receiving a D in my Pre-Calc/Trig class, I had never felt so bad in my life. This wasn’t the grade that I knew I should receive. So I started up working with a tutor and asking my teacher for help. I ended the class with a solid B and felt that I really had learned something about Trigonometry. Sometimes facing the fact that you need help can end up with a better GPA.
