Both themes don’t allow for unclear or failing paths, but they look for the most effective path to ensure the task gets accomplished. When I’m assigned a responsibility, I tend to look for the best directions to go, that will not only make it easier for me to complete, but always ensuring that I complete it exceptionally well. This theme will greatly help me in the future by staying active and organized with my daily tasks, whether it being personal or with my career.

A student might have to drop out and get a job to provide for younger siblings or a parent. This would be an understandable reason to not continue college, but is very specific to certain people or families. Another personal case of why an individual would drop out is college is it is just not the right fit for their life. College does teach valuable life skills and provides an advanced education for those who need it, yet some professions do not require a degree. If a student is not getting valuable instruction for what they want to do, it would be the smart thing to back out and peruse an apprenticeship for example.
Even in the end when everything is done than there will still be good in everything. I think that the theme is “Determination is the key to success”.

After experiencing this my perspective towards my family didn’t change drastically, but before there was no sense of pride, which could be because I was younger and didn’t understand. Now I see all the obstacles my family and I have had to overcome and it makes me feel proud that regardless of what the obstacle was they were able to make it this far. My goals and accomplishments are not just mine; they are my families as well. Taking this into consideration I’m not upset that they didn’t tell me. In-fact I appreciate them helping me cope and pursue everything that I was told I was limited to.
Before, I had no idea how much college can cost, or how a loan might hurt more than help. I always figured a loan is okay, if you pay it off. But I didn’t realize, for example, much about interest, or subsidized vs. unsubsidized loans, or even what FAFSA was. This is all entails general knowledge high school seniors should know by the time they are getting close to graduation. Completing this project made me realize how fortunate I am to have my college expenses taken care of, and I will not take that for granted.
I realized that I should try to live the the simple, joyful life my grandpa had lived. Also, I realized that I should start living in the moment, and try to be kinder to others.

Growing up near a college town, my parents hoped that moving away would not be necessary. However, for my desired major, moving away was the only option. Throughout my college search, my personal choices were leading me out of state. While moving away was going to be hard for my parents, moving across the country would be even harder. When I finally chose OU, the news was a relief for my parents.
I was told at a young age that education was the key to success and from that point on I made it my main priority not to be the average student among those that settle for less but to be a outstanding student that rises to every occasion to take advantage of my education. I do not that not let any setbacks or obstacles interfere with my education. I have maintain a 3.7 GPA despite of my after school job during my junior year. My mom told me during my tenth grade year that my junior year was going to either make me or break me. She explained I had to be really on top of my studies and I had no room for small mistakes.
Four years ago, I remember being told, “We both know you can do it, you are just not putting in enough effort.” In the middle of my eighth grade year, the dreams of going to college and having a better life for myself was not important at that moment. College didn’t matter to me as I was with the wrong type of friends who always influenced my behavior whether I knew it or not. While I knew that I was capable of being on the high honor roll, it didn’t seem to matter to a thirteen year old. Knowing that college was still years away, I didn’t want to focus on it so early in my life. My grades and behavior were the main reasons I was on the border of not graduating.

I found that having an unbiased attitude towards others leads to my other core values of: honesty, loyalty, compassion, patience, advocacy and respect for others. Currently these values all play a major roll in my life. However, as my family grows in age and maturity and as my circle of friends changes and evolves, then these issues will need to be re-evaluated in a few years’ time to help me continue to live my life in a happy, productive and meaningful

My answer was that learning is never wasted and it made me feel alive. Since the cost was exorbitant, and financial aid packages didn 't exits, it simply wasn 't a viable option.
I refused to let my shyness take me over. Overcoming my fear of the unknown and finding my self-confidence has been a challenging yet rewarding experience for me. I have learned that making mistakes isn’t wrong, and that they are a part of life. “With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better
