College! Why is it such a big deal to go right in to collage! I understand,

however I just don't know what I want to do yet. I know I want to do

something that has to do with criminal justice. As in the FBI. I just think

that would be so cool. It would make me happy and I'll get paid O.K.

My plans were to graduate, then stay with my mom for a year and just work 2

jobs, maybe take a class at U.A.A. So, I can keep with the whole study thing.

Oh, and I would go into the Air Guard also. They really help with collage.

Then a friend and me would get an apartment and split the rent. I would then

go to U.A.A for 2 years and after that I would transfer to the University of

my Choice.

I got all of these ideas from my sister. I look up to my sister a lot. I

learn from her experiences. She never took her SAT's and she did really badly

in high school. But, when she went to U.A.A she got really good grades then

she transferred over to N.Y.U. It's the 3rd hardest college to get into for

her field! So, ya know if she can do it so can I.

My father on the other hand! He thinks I should go to Grays Harbor Community

College. And if I do, then I can live with him and he will pay for my BOOKS!

If you don't know, Grays Harbor is a really bad college, it is worse then

U.A.A. Even if I wanted to go, my mom wouldn't let me! I mean come on; he

will help me pay for my BOOKS that's a real help.

I remember one day I was in the truck with my dad and we were talking about

colleges and he said "you can't go to a good college like your sister, you

just cant. You're not like her. And, I'm sure as hell I'm not going to pay

that much!" I told him I don't expect him to pay for anything. My sister

went through college without her dad's help, so I can do it to. Every time I

try and talk to him about the university that I'm interested in or when I tell

him I want to be in the law or psychology field, he just changes the subject!
