There are many difficult aspects of the transition to college academically. First, would be studying for classes. This is because I don't have my parents bugging me about getting it done so I end up procrastinating and waiting until the last minute. To get better at studying, I started to go to the library to focus more on my homework and other assignments. The result of this made me less distracted and I improved in my classes instantly. Another issue would be taking notes during class. I have a problem of what I should or should not write and decide if the information is important or not.

This would help me refresh and get energized for the rest of the week. Writing papers is also a issue for me in college. I tend to not have a lot of detail in my papers, therefore not reaching the length that my teacher wants it to be. To improve this issue, I need to be more specific and add as much information about that topic. I've had this problem since Junior year of high school and it never improved. I've attempted to improve my writing skills but it never worked. As of right now, I
