If I could go back to my senior year of High School and talk to myself about college the first thing I would say is ? Don?t put it off?. I graduated High School in 2005 and, I had every intention of taking a year off and work full time to save up some money and really sit back and enjoy life before deciding what I wanted to do for a career. I truly regret that decision. I ended up buying a car and accumulating a few more bills by the end of my year off, there was no way I could go to school full time and not work so I tossed the idea of going back to school thinking there was no way I could afford it. Almost 5 years later I finally realize I can?t have a solid, dependable job without a college education. I've been laid off my job and I have lost everything. I've decided this is the perfect opportunity to rebuild my life. Im the first in my family to graduate HS and I want to set the example for my nieces and newphews that education is important.
I would tell myself not to go to college right away because it's the "right" thing to do. I went to college right out of High School and ended up partying my way to an associate's degree. Once I completed this I was so done with school and having to provide for myself that I quit to work full time. I didn't continue because I wasn't passionate about anything at the time. It took me a few years of working in different fields to understand that my calling was with children and people. Once I decided this and committed to a goal, I enrolled at UoP and I have never been happier to almost complete my degree! I think it is hard for any 18 year old to really know what they want to do for the rest of their life. Take a little time and you will eventually figure it out, I did!!!
