In New York City, Yancy academy, there is the boy named Percy Jackson.
Things haven’t gone well for Percy in school. Percy thinks his life is miserable, because of school. He was unconfident in school, and thought he was a troubled kid, that has been kicked out of school for six times in six years and got into many fight with Nancy Bobofit and her friends. Percy is also negative, he thinks bad things always happened to him. Why
“Am I a troubled kid? Yeah, you could say that.
“See bad things happen to me on field trips”
“I hoped for once I wouldn’t get in troubled”.
“I could start at any point in my short miserable life.”
“My grades slipped from Ds to Fs”.
“ I got into more fights with Nancy Bobofit and her friends. I was sent out into the hallway in almost every class.”
“what was so about me? A dyslexic, hyperactive boy with a D+ report card, kicked out of school for the sixth time in six years.” Said Percy. Life is hard for me in school and my grades still going down. I don’t want to be a troubled kid. These quotes shows that why Percy thinks his life was miserable and what is happening that cause Percy has bad attitude to school.
Having a bad attitude toward school/ self-confidence/study habits are terrible. I think there are some choices Percy can make to change his bad habits and attitude. According to 3 Tips to boost your confidence, How to focus on studying and Top 10 study tips. These are the 5 ways that Percy that can do to change his attitude toward school/life. First: Ask for help, when you are in a hard time/ in troubled. That will help Percy to not be a troubled kid or when troubled comes to ask for help and solve the problem. Second: Be more confidente. Percy should benefit from believing in his own ability to improve. It is important for Percy to be confident to make better decisions and create a plan to help change his attitude toward school. Believe in yourself Percy! Third: Manage his emotions. Because of Percy can’t manage his emotions, it cause a fight between Percy and Nancy Bobofit and her friends. So maybe that is the reason why Percy got kicked out of school for six times in six years. Fourth: keep distract thing apart. That will help Percy be more concentrate on studying and get good grades. So he could change his attitude to school. Because he thinks learning is easy and fascinating. Fifth: Be positive. Having positive attitude is important to anything and it will help Percy out of stress and help him change his attitude toward school. The ways that I suggest maybe is not suitable for Percy/not work on Percy. But it really works on me. I remember one time I can’t focus on studying. And I put the distract thing away, then I focus on studying and get a good grade on my text. I remember once I managed my emotion and somebody didn’t, and the people wo didn’t manage his emotion got in to trouble, and people who managed his emotion were not in troubled.
It seems like if Percy would change his attitude toward school he would be more successful in all areas. From managing his emotions, being more confident, keeping distract thing apart, asking for help, having a positive attitude towards life. And think his life is cheerful.
