"What does the re-election of President Barack Obama means for me and the world?"

First of all, I saw some great news about Obama being a president, one of them being this.

  This is HUGE for Brazil and its students. And the best part of it, is that it is happening NOW. Dilma Rousseff made a excellent work on this, and did not delayed anything. The first group of students, almost 600, already went to the U.S in January of 2012, and more than 1,400 students departed in September. And this opportunities will persist throughout the years, and when we reach senior year even better chances are going to appear, making it easier to get scholarships and access to american universities.

Mr. Obama Helping us all.

New (old?) Goals

This post will be mainly about my goals for this quarter and the previous one. In this last quarter, stuff didn’t worked as good as it should. I procrastinated so much it actually decreased my grades. Thankfully on the end of that quarter I got a reality face-slap, ‘’waking’’ me up. My thoughts for this quarter are now being SO much more responsible with deadlines and planning ahead. Doing homework for actual learning and emphasizing what we studied in (math) class. I will keep basically the same goals and ideas as before, because I didn't improved that much to acquire newer ones. I was able to manage decently my time for projects and stuff, but it was rather mediocre. I had some serious issues on handing book logs and free writing histories as well (sorry Mr. Mac).

What I feel that I’m currently learning is that if you want something done, don’t keep thinking when you should do it. Just go and finish! I mean, don't stop working on it until it’s done, then you can give yourself a break and head on to the next assignment. Another important thing to add is that each work you finish on time is training to college, where YOU are responsible for everything, be academic or not. It is definitely a great way to train your responsibility. And the good part is that once you get those habits of finishing things earlier, you start to feel bad about yourself if you don’t do it.
