The final reason that led me to college is to experience the" life of as a college student". I have learned that college is nothing compared to high school. Being a college student is not easy, it is about learning from others, learning how to become independent and following your dreams. I will continue to keep working hard and get myself a step closer each day to my dream career. To sum everything up college is an opportunity that not everyone has, so being able to attend college is a blessing that no one should take for granted.
College: Is It Worth It? As a student in high school, the pressure of figuring out what I want to do in the future is real. The idea of growing up and getting a college education seems to be always in the back of my mind and it is hard. What if I don’t want to go to college? It’s hard to even think about that seeing as not going to college is often seen as lazy and irresponsible, but should it be seen that way?
My “supernatural aid” would come from all my teachers educating me so I am able to get into college and my parents who constantly remind and push me towards my goal. My “threshold would most likely be the transfer of my sophomore year of high school into my junior year. At this point in my life, I am slowly becoming an adult and taking on more responsibilities and starting to make larger life decisions. At this point in my life, I am passing into what will be some of the most important years of my life. My “threshold guardian: was most likely myself and my fears.
Pursuing college after high school is something that I want to do. Going to college is a different experience for everyone and I want mine to be special. An HBCU will make my college experience something I will never forget. College tour will expose me to a few of the HBCU that interest me. I am a strong-minded, hardworking student.
I attended college right after college because I wanted to add to what I’ve already learned in high school. Also I knew what I wanted to do and be in life. The things that was taught in high school was still be fresh to me. I was one of the fortune students who qualified for TOPS and federal grants to pay for my pricy tuition. I think if I would have had to pay out of pocket for tuition, I would have been one of those who would have set out for a while before attending.
As a member of a team, I had to fully commit myself, because my actions did not only have an effect on myself but my teammates as well. Giving 110% was something my parents had taught me to always do. I learned the importance of responsibility. I told my mom my junior year of high school that I wanted to play lacrosse in college. She had told me if I really wanted to play in college that I would have to work hard, practice more and focus on my grades.
In the years since I entered school, to the moment that my cap left my hand, I had grown into an entirely new version of myself. The freedom of college in combination with the guidance of so many teachers had led me to turn every negative aspect of myself into something new. With the pride I had gained in being part of something bigger, I became diligent and wholly interested in my studies. I had met so many interesting people who helped me break from my shell, and in doing so I had met some of the greatest friends I have ever had. However, in the scale of my life, these events are of little importance to me in everyday life.
With senior year of high school coming to a close, comes an overwhelming amount of stress about moving away to college. At the beginning of this school year, I was eager to leave and excited to go away, but I came to a realization that leaving home alarms me. At this point in time, I began to notice just how much my parents do for me and just ruminating about everything I would have to do on my own now, makes me nervous. School has never been an issue for me but what my friends say about college, makes it even more petrified to go. Being constantly asked questions like, “how do you always get your work done?” or “how do you have such good time management?” reassures me that I will do fine in college.
Luckily, I managed to land a job as a camp counselor, but something was still missing. Finally, I realized that I wanted to go back to school. Going back to school drastically changed my life. My work ethic, free time, and self – esteem have all changed my daily life for the better. When I was in high school I think it is safe to say I was a pretty good student.
What is my purpose? Since I was a child I was always changing what I wanted to be when I grow up, but now I have everything more clear, I remember since I was a first grader I promise to my uncle and to myself that I will finish college. I want to be an inspiration to my brothers and my parents that I accomplish my goal, I'm always thinking about my future how I will look like in three or five years what I'm doing all this why do I do my homework, why do I work, I ask to myself a lot of things, I want to try to do my best every day no matter what I try to go to school everyday even if I'm sick I want to enjoy every single moment of my life this is the main reason of going to college to get a better paid in job help my parents and brothers, I want to go to college finish my career be someone successful be someone, work hard in school, in life and everywhere. Finish college is one of my biggest goals is like one of those episodes that you want to watch every Sunday, you know that you have to wait for it but at the end is worth it. I remember when I first came to United States of America two years ago I felt
The academic success I’ve had during my final two years at college has only made me hungrier for more success. I have already set aside the blueprint for my study schedule in anticipation for law school. Villanova Law School still remains one of my top institutions to attend in Fall 2016. My experiences balancing sports, school, and work gives me an upper hand on prospective students that only had to worry about academics during their time in undergrad. Athletes, overall, have a strong desire to strive for perfection, and although it will be the toughest challenge of my life thus far, I am ready to put in the work in order to achieve law school excellence at Villanova
It is as if middle school was still on its way trying to find ways to squeeze in my life, or at least that’s what I feel. But I guess I just have to accept this reality that I am actually starting high school. Now, I had many thoughts before entering this place which some people call living nightmare, and big part of those“thoughts” were dreams. Dreams about my future, Both long and short terms, and inside classes and outside in my social life. And as you read this, I think this will sort of open up myself about who I am for a quick introduction as we start this new and “exciting” school
