I started to convince my parents that we could take a trip to Saint Louis. “We’ll go for one day, and one day only” my parents told me after thinking long and hard about it. When Saturday came around, the excitement I had could barely be contained. The whole family, which was just my parents, sister, and I, all got into the car early that morning just thinking it was going to be a day full of fun. An hour into the
I have had a very difficult time adjusting to college because I knew how to take advice about asking for help and not actually asking for help when I needed it. During my freshman year, this was a great problem and this resulted in me ending the year with a low GPA and losing my scholarship. The wake-up call came when my strong mother broke down after I told her I had lost my scholarship and that she had to pay out of pocket for me to attend an expensive institution. Although I could have dropped out and attended the community college near my home, my mother reminded me that this was my one and only shot at a college education. For the next two semesters, I worked hard and brought my GPA above a 3.0 which helped me regain my scholarship.
On April 17,2015 when i had rolled out of bed with my nerves completely rattled. It was my seventeenth birthday. All i could come to think about was how quickly the time was approaching until what i felt, was the most vital test of of my life, my drivers test. Not only was this testing how well i could follow the rules of the road and my parallel parking skills, it was allowing me freedom and independence with greater responsibilities lying ahead. But i had succeed and i was excited for all driving adventured to come with my friends.
College is one of the most important and life changing times in the life of an American. Leaving high school behind and venturing out to the adult world is an amazing experience that every individual should experience. However, young adults from every corner of the country leave college with crippling debt or do not go to their preferred college of choice. College education should be cheaper as it will help families and students financially and give them the satisfaction with having the opportunity to go to their first choice for college. The tuition and cost of college is detrimental to thousands of families across the country and brings student debt to future graduates.
My experiences while serving in the military were amazing; however, I don’t feel that everyone should have to make such a sacrifice just to get a college education, which is required by most jobs if you intend on obtaining a decent salary and a stable career. Many students must take out a student loans and depend on financial aid or scholarships to help them pay for their education and that ends up haunting them financially long after they graduate and start their careers. It’s a hefty price to pay for improving yourself. I believe the government granting two years of free college to students would aid students, while they’re on this journey of self-improvement, by decreasing or eliminating the amount of debt acquired; but also, by opening doors for the students who would never be afforded the opportunity due to they’re financial circumstances. I believe that the environment created from the two years of free schooling would give each student the adequate time needed to determine what occupational field is desired, and enjoy college without the stress of financial hardship.
Education after high school will lead to better job finds and just all around smartness and maybe even learning things a school can’t teach you. I think the world needs to lower college prices because you need a college education for most good jobs, so poor students can still attend college, and the debt you have after college is enormous and takes forever to pay off. Please take all of these reasons into

It is said that a well-educated workforce is a key to state prosperity and that college is considered the great equalizer, but rising school costs and crushing debt for students in the United States are beginning to take their toll. Community college enrollment has been on the decline for many years, and the trend may not reverse anytime soon (citation), yet steps to encourage college attendance are already being taken. Free community college for responsible students over the span of two years has already been proposed by former President Barack Obama (citation), while states such as Tennessee, Oregon, and Minnesota are offering some form of free college. Free community college is a very controversial subject with many opposing viewpoints, but the advantages of free education, such as an increased number of educated individuals, less student debt, and more educational freedom, could outweigh the potential disadvantages.

I had also sprained my wrist, when I tried to catch myself from hitting the ground, and I had road rash. It was only two days after the accident that my family and I had to fly out to Las Vegas to go for vacation. The timing of all of this happening wasn’t the best. We could not put a cast on because of the flight coming up and the trip we had, the doctor said It would have been very uncomfortable having the cast on the flight with a newly broken bone. So, instead I just wore a boot, which was good enough because it had the support I needed.
