Moving from one school to another is hard but moving from one continent to another is harder. At the age of 11, my mom and stepdad gathered up all our stuff and flew my family to the USA. I had to leave everything behind and live this new life. I was very nervous to start my first day of seventh grade in Sherrard Jr. High but the people here were very welcoming.
It was a big stoned building that sat on the left side of the street it was on the same street the brown vs board had there march. The Sanctuary is a place where I can get a complete quietness. Even when I have a lot on my mind it just seems like God erases everything that I have on my mind; my last week before I committed to independence community college to play football. I had a long talk with God just to make sure I made the right decision in choosing the right school. I have a lot of memories in this church the place where my Mom and Dad got married at, where I first got my very first bible.
After graduating high school and witnessing the family problems going on at home, I decided to live with my parents and attend a community college. My college career had a rough beginning. Soon after I began the fall semester, the arguments at home were intolerable and lead to my parent’s divorce. Not only did I have to deal with school assignments, now I had to recover from the psychological abuse I had suffered. Although it was a very difficult time for me, I kept myself distracted with school so that I would not think about my family issues.
My goals after college are to open my own therapeutic clinic and to become a physical therapist. I will accomplish this goal by diligently working in my classes and saving little by little to open up my clinic. Auburn university will help me accomplish this goal because I would receive the proper material with your rigorous curriculum. and with your state of the art facilities I would be successful in my
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.
Returning to college for me was something that really came unexpectedly. I joined the military in 2008 after stopping just three credits short of my degree in Culinary Arts at the Art Institute of Ft Lauderdale. I surely thought when I joined the Army that it would be my career until retirement so college was never in the books for me. However, as fate would have it I am here today recently retired from the Army at the age of 32 and enrolled as a full-time student. Even though my return to college was not planned I am truly excited to become proficient in a new trade.
The college process was diffficult for me and to be quite honest, I was very close to giving up on the college dream. Then i found bennington college, a school that sounded too good to be true, I was more than thrilled when i realised that it had everything that i ever wanted, it was a calm and beautiful liberal arts campus that offers unique and different courses. even amongst the top liberal art schools in the country, on the surface its has a tightknit campus community, incredible resources per student, small classes, and experienced teachers. But more critically, the bennington "spirit" is incredible. There just seems to be something special about this school,
So far my first semester here at Neosho County Community College has been good. I have experienced lots of things these past six months. And there are lots of things the incoming freshman should know, but the three major things that I experienced were, procrastination, Grades and, dorm problems. I have faced those three problems a lot just in my first semester of college and those are also problems freshman all over the world face.
Through high school my grades weren’t the best. I enjoyed challenging classes, but they were a lot of work. Between the work load and problems at home, I didn’t keep up well. By spring of my senior year I realized my hopes of leaving the small town I lived in weren’t going to happen. A friend who worked at the local community college contacted me about attending classes in the fall.
Everything is not as Bad as it Actually is I believe to always consider every possible outcome of life and not make judgements too easily. This all started about a month ago, it was the middle of summer, school was just about to start and I was very nervous about starting high school, along with being excited for learning new things, although I was mostly scared about getting a bad grade. As the days approached, many of my friends and I discussed of how we were all scared for our first week, scared of homework, tests, essays, and all sorts of frightening things.
