Finding Humor


This Habit of Mind is really easy to define, it is mainly about being positive to ourselves. It is pretty hard to pick yourself up after a bad grade and deal with it reasonably, but you have to try, and that's reason why we need to "find humor".

Example:

Long long time ago, when we had our first formative quiz, I got a 5/10 because I didn't prepare enough. I was sad and kind of embarrassed when I saw other people all got 8,9 or even all correct. Then I started went over my quiz, and I realize some questions that I got wrong were actually pretty easy. The reason why I got it wrong mainly because I could not understand the question. After I found out that "secret". I was able to being more positive to my next quiz, because I know that I just need to actually understand the question and answer it correctly.

At the first chapter 1 test; sadly, I still didn't do it correctly. So I checked the question and compare to the quiz question, then I found out it was a little bit different and that was why I got mark off. I still tried to be optimistic because it is important to understand the concept even though I didn't get this question correct on a chapter test.
