I would tell my past self to continue to be determined and diligent. Go to school for something that makes you happy and complete, not what others want you to do. Apply for scholarships early to avoid debt and strive to become a member of honor societies and school clubs.
In high school, good grades were easy to obtain
It was easy to study at school and pass over and over again
But with no direction of what I was purposed to do
I went to college straight out of school thinking this would be easy too
I soon found out it was not easy to prevail
In a school with bad study habits, I began to fail
I changed my major but felt unqualified in that too
Therefore, I dropped out, what else was there to do
Years later, I tried to start anew
To a school that would fit my schedule and build my confidence too
Even though I chose a great school to attend
That worked with my busy schedule and gave me peace within
I had to stop attending because of the financial issues bell
And became depressed because I thought I would never excel
But a few years later a good friend encourage me to try
To go back in human services to help others survive
So as I end this poem and my advice to you
Know your purpose in life, which will make your college career easier to do!
The advice I would have give myself would to make sure I went to school after I graduate so I would not be struggling to make it through with balancing work, school, and parenthood. And to better manage my financial matters. Mostly important to know that your credit follow anywhere you go.
