Meta #8 My metacognition has grown immensely in the seven weeks I have been writing these journals. The reason is one part being the psychology class. I never really thought about things the way I do now since taking the course. What I know about things now is completely different from back at the beginning of the year. Reason being is that I am also more mature. I have been on my own for awhile now, living in my own apartment, buying my own food. It is only natural that the maturation process has grown, and that I think in different ways. The only way I can make sure that my metacognition improves, or stay where it is at, is to remember my past experiences and how I coped with them. By doing the little things right, I can assure that my metacognition can grow, and expand.
