I’m currently a sophomore year in highschool and had multiple Cs with a a few Bs and As in my first semester, part of this is due to my lack of self discipline during online class because of the pandemic, and also me drawing day and night cuz I somehow got interested in art, I also confessed to my crush that I liked for years and got rejected… surely the worst time I can pick to make a confession (the night before exam week…). I also didn’t apply to any clubs or activities in the first semester cuz I didn’t care, but I care now. I did well in my freshman year with straight As but with only one club and one volunteer work.
So here’s an overall look:
-One club one volunteer work
Sophomore year (first semester):
-3 Cs, 2 Bs, 2 As
-A few absents, worst time with 4 absents in two weeks(I slept over or woke up in the middle of class)
-No club and no volunteer work
-2 APs, 3 honors
-Especially the AP CSP, I completely missed out on learning for the first semester, have no idea how to make a proper code and would probably quit the AP Exam :(.
-The other AP is AP Seminar, which is also a C, the reasons are because I didn’t care, and my teacher didn’t assign assignments and expected us to turn them in when we can’t find them in google classroom.
I generally think that this is all my fault and the teachers aren’t the matter.
I have changed my mindset and fixed my sleeping schedule now but realized on how bad I messed up my past semester :(.
Is there any ways I can add up to save this experience? For example joining more clubs and activities or APS for the following years or maybe suggestions on how to overcome this horrible mistake?
I have lowered my expectations for colleges, I was planning to go to a UC but now seeking my goals in CSUs… (my parents are ok with CSU as long as I can make good money with what I have).
Please give advices I need some mentors or comments.
