It Happened To Me: Every Best Friend 's Dream When I left college for the summer last semester, I did not expect or plan for life to turn out the way it did. It was as if I had no control over my own destiny, which if you knew me, you would know that didn’t go over so well. As May turned into June and June turned into July, first semester billing had arrived. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the statement. I owed six thousand dollars.
I thought that was going to be easy but, as I look back through the four years of high school the only time I wrote something was when I was assigned it. So you would think such a young thriving mind would take advantage of this and spill his guts out. So I typed and typed and well, I kept getting nowhere. I watched other commencement speakers from the HBN archive talk about our future and realized that they had some pretty fancy words of advice. Now I know I cannot give you advice on the future because I don't have the experience.
“Try to also compromise in a positive way, rather than always sacrificing. Negotiate up for something rather than subtract.” “Give up something, be prepared to offer something to the table yourself.” The 5 rules of fair compromise in a relationship. (2016, June 17). For example my fiancée and I disagree on a lot but this situation was really hard for me to choose at the time I had just graduated from high school I moved in with him and my in laws. I had just quit my job before graduation I felt like anybody, I had no money, no job, and didn’t think in any further education.
It was like this for five days a week from August to December. I began to question if college was for me, and if I even belonged anywhere. I felt alone, clueless, and unimportant to the campus. I wasn’t use to feeling like this I was always in extracurricular activities, meeting new people, having close relationships, and being employed. After my first semester, I had enough of feeling this way and knew I had to be the person
But my Mum, Dad, Granny, Uncles, Aunties don’t understand what they are! Even when I try to explain (the very little knowledge I have about) the exams! Is this just me and my family or am I not alone? Because these new exams will decide my and 65,000 other 4th year pupils future and is it right we know so very little about them? Also in that statement released by the Scottish government in 2009 mentions nothing on how the teachers- the most important people of the whole operation- felt about the change or how they would understand the new course and qualifications.
My plan of two years came crashing down last week, my dream of going to a six year medical program was denied. The criteria that I have and the criteria that the school emplaced did not match up. I had to many college credit hours for the fast track program which denied my access into my dream program. After receiving the heartbreaking email, I really began to think about my life. At first I was angry at myself for taking too many college classes, but then I began to see that it may have been the best thing to ever happen to me.
However, I did not even give it a shot, nor did I dare tell my parents my thoughts, because my parents asked me to choose a major related to business. I was worried that they would not allow me to go to a film school. Until this spring when the deadline for application was around the corner did I make my mind to pick Radio-Television-Film as my major. I have set my dream aside for a long time and I feel very depressed and regretted that I had made no effort in quest of my dream. I asked myself whether I was too late to prepare.
But still, I knew that it would just feel so good to leave some tire tread on the paper. I had not written a thesis as an undergrad, and I was looking forward to this process. It took some time for me to find a professor willing to work with me, but after a number of false starts, I finally came to Peter Heinegg’s door. My thesis was based on the disparate work of Nathaniel Hawthorne and radical feminist theologian Mary Daly. Each week that I left Peter’s office, I found myself laden with at least five books that he deemed absolutely crucial to my writing and thinking process.
It is rumored that Mark Twain once said, “I have never let schooling interfere with my education.” I have been guilty of similar thinking throughout the years and until recently did not feel the need to continue my education. At the age of nineteen, I let trivial things derail my attempt in achieving a college degree. Now at the age of thirty-nine, although I am much wiser, a whole new set of challenges present themselves. Making the decision to return to college and finish my undergraduate degree twenty years later was very difficult for me. One of the biggest obstacles to my educations is I feel there is not sufficient time to spend with my wife and kids now, without the added requirements of college assignments.
Since I didn 't feel well about that exam, I chose not to believe in the astrologer and didn 't apply for the best high school which is my goal. However, when the grades came out, I was so shocked that I did reach the required score of the best high school. That 's almost impossible for me because I never had such good scores! It 's my first time for me to have a quick moment which believes there has something powerful out of nature. It controls everything and guides our
