I have always been one to enjoy school and learning, so the motivation to continue with a higher education has been in existence, however, the motivation to get a significant GPA was not. I had never felt this slacking feeling before, but I have to admit, it was kind of adventurous not studying! Well lo and behold, this adventure lead to my first BAD grade! It was my second semester of college, where I attended my second university. I never once got below a B until this point. I eventually picked up the grades again in my third university that I attended, but once I got to Stockton, I went back to getting mainly Cs. I suppose my motivation was to just simply get by, until I realized I wanted to go on to graduate school. I new something had to change if I wanted to get into graduate school and that something was my GPA and my motivation for it. Now, for the past three semesters I have been completely motivated on being the student I always was and needless to say, the story has a happy ending...I picked up my GPA and have applied to graduate schools. I have been entirely motivated to finish Stockton with not simply a degree, but to know that I tried my best. I am one hundred and ten percent motivated to not only cross the finish line but finish in full stride.
