Cornell Notes Saved My Life

 February 27, 2009

 Being in my second semester in college I have learned skills that I learned in my high school helped me out.  In my high school we were required to use cornell notes. I did not see a need of them to be honest because I did not learn by that style. But as soon as I entered college my whole view of it became different.

  I have a history class that begins at 7:00 . During this time I am really sleepy sometimes. I was not happy one day when I had my notes looking like they were not notes at all. Then I remembered  the note taking style in my highschool. Now it has helped me out to because my notes will be more comprehensible to me. Instead of writing tid bits that the instructor says I could focus on the point of the lectures since one column is designated for the main idea and the other for bullet points,examples etc. In the end of the notes you have a summary of what the notes is all about. It has been four weeks of me just taking notes without any organization and my first test will not be easy to study through. 

But, now that I am using this style of notes even though I get sleep my writing sticks to the main ideas. My second tests for my courses will be studied better.

To formally intorduce myself my online name is veronicahigherlearning. I am currently a freshman student wanting to major in Business and Education. I hope to create software that will help with anything from math to Swahili. I love to learn just about everything. I am also thinking about minoring in Computer Science to be able to understand the software side of my future business. Well it is going to be a long journey but it takes small steps. So...
My first post will be about my grammar journey. My sentences are mostly simple sentences. Hopefully by the end of many posts I will be able to write the level I am supposed to be writing. . I am going to begin with using the first site I googled for grammar and that is the Guide to Grammar and Writing site.
