Mid Semester Reflection
For my capstone I am going to promote awareness about leukemia to the community of Coventry. I have chosen this particular field of inquiry for my capstone project because it is closely related to my life. A year ago my dad was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. This was very surprising and frightful news to my ears! When I found this out, I was greatly shocked because my dad has always been very healthy thought-out his entire life time. The main reason why I wanted to promote awareness about the disease leukemia is because I want the community to be prepared for the effects of the disease and how they can affect people all around the world. I am hoping that the people that I present to will leave with the knowledge to know how to help prevent and cure this horrible disease. Another reason why I wanted to promote awareness about leukemia is because I personally wanted to know more about the deadly disease that has just taken hold of my beloved father.
So far done my capstone project, I have not done a lot. I am so far behind that it’s not even funny. I have fully completed my proposal which includes my timeline. That is about all that I have finished. I have just started my research on leukemia. I went to the library and ordered about 7 books on the topic. I am planning my research very soon so that I can start working on my PowerPoint that I will use to promote awareness about the disease. It is very difficult for my to complete my work in capstone because I have so much other work due in all my other classes. Since I and in almost all honor classes I gat tins of work every night that just take up all my time. I try so hard to work on my capstone but by the time I get to it is already one o’ clock in the morning and I have to get up for school in four hours. I am actually very stress all the time just because I know that I have tons of work to get done I and can’t complete it.
Many people have busy lives, especially someone who has to juggle more than one task per day. The people in particular that I am talking about are college students. How some of us have jobs and need jobs that help keep us in school. The tough part is that we have to spend most of our time on school which leaves very little time for work, even thought we do have to work to make a decent amount of ...
The only real problem that I have encountered during this project is my extreme procrastination. It’s really weird too because I am not that much of a procrastinator at all, but I have been with this project. I have learned a lot from doing this project. I have learned that when you put things off they just get piled up and then you do not want to any of them at all. I have also learned that it pays off o be very organized when completing a project of some sort. It helps you do a better job on your tasks and also helps you kept everything together and neat.
It’s sad to say, but I still have so much work to do on my capstone! Over April vacation I am going to contact the middle school and set up a date to present, I am going to finish all of my research and then begin my PowerPoint for the middle school. I also have not started any of my journals which is a very bad thing. after all of this is done then I have to create my final PowerPoint that I will use to present in front of the panel of judges at the end of the year.
