My senior year of high school, I applied to one university because I the only way to be success in life was to go to that school. Fast forward to a few months later, when I received what I thought was the biggest heartbreak of my life. I was seventeen and my parents had not so great credit, it was impossible for me to get loans for a $50,000 a year school. I was devastated. Not going to college was not an option for me, but I simply did not think I was the type of student who went to community college.
This all made me realize that trying out new experiences is nerve wracking, but it does bring changes in our life and maybe it help us to be the person we are right now. Most of the time is worth trying new experiences when you have friends and family supports. For me, my family and friends have always guided me. That’s the reason this move away from my family is not that bad when we often reunite during breaks and technology like FaceTime had help me to stay connected. In Addition, the little changes do help to learn new lessons of life.
My friends in North Syracuse were extremely supportive of me and I could not be more grateful for that. They taught me to be accepting of everyone, and they helped me become a less shy person. When I was younger I was not a fan of talking to and being around people I did not know. My friends in North Syracuse kind of led me out of my shell, which really helped when I moved to a completely new area. The friends I have now remind me of my friends I had in North Syracuse.
It was a mix. I was happy at times, but it was hard because I wasn't really focused because nobody I knew at that time was still in college and my age group, but I mean think about it most of my friends graduated if they were going to do it or they quit doing it. Plus I moved to Columbus it was a new set of people that had to learn to live with so I didn't have any of my same network of people from before and so it was positive.
For the past three years I have dedicated myself to my education, making sure to attend every lecture regardless of the weather, my health, or my ever growing exhaustion level. I have become consumed with the concept of success, and failure is just not an option. Although things have not always been this way for me personally. I am passionate about school because I discovered social work, a blessing in disguise.
It would have saved a lot of time and how I originally had the video was good enough. This relates to what I 've learned in the past by that team work always works. If your work together it 'll make the assignment a lot easier and a lot better. This is quite true since I enjoyed the assignment and the results were outstanding.

I have never been one of those kids who fancied education from a tender age. I loved playing around and having fun with friends. My first day in school was among the worst days of my life. To me, I felt like my parents did not want me around them and so they had to shove in one of the daycares around. I had no option but to get used to the new environment and people as well.
There are memories that I will surely cherish and memories that might still haunt me until today, but I will never forget that these are the experiences that transform me into becoming a better version of myself before. I wouldn’t say that I am comfortable being in college. I still am struggling with many things even if I become mature. There would still be times where I would study; times when I would slack off and times when I just want to give up. Juggling the projects, home works, reports I need to submit in every subject is difficult.

Most 18 year olds, according to "’I Can’t Afford College’ and Other Financial Aid & Grant Myths", fail to understand that the wrong answer to a seemingly simple question, “what’s next”, could cost them over $1 million dollars! As detailed in “Six Reasons to Go to College”, Many young people fail to realize the failure to obtain a college degree puts them behind for the rest of their life, and without a college degree they are less productive and happy members of society. Students simply do not understand the statistics which show that over time, the income of people with a college degree is rising while the income of people without a college degree is actually falling.
As I write this, I’m sitting in the air conditioned 20 by 30 foot Campus Ministry room. It makes me feel nostalgic to think that it was just last year I was sitting in a room by the same name with strikingly different characteristics: cramped, muggy, hazy yellow lighting. Since my freshman year the entire building has slowly evolved from the latter to the former. Now as a senior, the renovations are over halfway completed, and it makes me feel funny to think that in the near future the Wahlert of my freshman year will be long forgotten in both appearance and culture. As graduation gets closer, however, I have realized that my frustration toward the internal changes of Wahlert do nothing but overshadow the good memories I have of Wahlert.
Growing up, nothing had inspired me more than having my mother dress me up nicely every day to go to school. In the meantime, I did not comprehend the importance of going to school, until I left middle school and started in high school. Besides that, my modest childhood, my success in high school opened my eyes, and my graduation from high school inspired me to start college. First, my modest childhood inspired me to start college.
