Deciding to attend Texas A&M University was both a hardship and immense, opportunity in my life. Coming from a close knit background, and possessing a very family oriented character, my decision to come to this incredible institution was one out of my comfort zone. If I was to be asked one year ago, If I could ever see myself standing on this marvelous campus, attending one of the top schools in the nation, I would have honestly responded, no. My counselors would have said no, my friends, my college advisor, my family. The answer would not have been yes, not because I wasn 't capable of meeting the standards to attend, but because there seemed more obstacles in my way than there was forces pushing me forward.

He has always told me that you will learn many things that will affect my future, but it will also be time for me to fall and after I become stronger and fight to realize my dreams. "Only one thing makes the dream unrealizable, fear of failure" (p 141) When I read the story of Santiago in the Alchemist, I remember exactly what my grandfather said about how we fall and get up in this life. We are human that we do not think about the dangers of falling, but we want to reach our dreams and in my case follow the same legend as my grandfather. Do what the heart says, She knows everything, because she is born of the soul of the world, and there she will return one
Of course for an era to receive the name of “The Golden Era” it has to have had very impressive accomplishments and trophies in its holster. As mentioned it brought us two of the most popular rappers of all time, and spoke out on many issues prevalent in America’s poverty stricken neighborhoods. Many artists exposed the police department for racially profiling, often harassing, and in some cases brutalizing young African American male and females. This subject elevated 90’s hip hop to another level with the public trial of the officers involved in the 1992 beating of Los Angeles taxi driver Rodney King on camera. This was a part of everyday life for a young black man prior to this event, but this event allowed the whole country to finally see that what was being rapped about was true.

On the streets, everyone still knew me as Lil’ Roze, or even my new street name, K.A.S.H: King, assassin, scholar, hitman. I tried to live up to that name’s meaning through my lyrics, slaying MCs in hip-hop ciphers. We all had crazy rap names like that, and we would throw them around in heated rap battles. My big bro Luechy and I were considered the two best rappers on our block. Other legendary rappers at Robeson were Travie, Tray B, Tate Da Great, Glenn, and Harold G. During a lunchroom rap battle, we got a lot of attention from other students and teachers that were securing the lunchroom making sure we weren’t doing anything illegal, but the best rap battles were held after school.

If my mother could I know she would pay every step of the way for me to abandon this small town and pursue these immense dreams of mine, but the fact is she can barely pay to keep herself, along with her 2 sons up and going. I dare not to let anything stop me, no matter how many people tell me this is too adventurous of a dream to pursue. I am a very ambiguous and hard working man. For example, in order to help my mother and me, I acquired a job at a young age of 16. I am not one who will stop easily.
Well not at my school because they don’t have a vet class in ag, but they do have a class online you can take but it is very hard. When you eventually graduate high school and want to become a vet you should have already completed some classes online in high school, then you should go to a college not just any college out there , go to a good college that has a high percentage in vet classes. Like my top choices of colleges would be Texas A&M, Baylor, Rice, Oklahoma State. If you ever needed some personal help outside of college go to a person that is already a vet, that person can teach you a lot of things. But another thing is you have got to have money that you will be willing to spend on college classes, those classes are not cheap at all they, usably range from $28,000 to $54,000 a year.
