Finally the extra work was reflecting in my grades. My parents were glad to see that my education had some meaning. That summer after school I just wanted to find a job and start making some money. Going to college for anther four year was something I thought I could not handle. I final got a job at UPS unloading trucks.
We got the news a few months into our school that would no longer be attending La Sierra Community. Another change, which I was not so happy with. One thing about me is that I hate change; I didn’t even want to move to a bigger house when my parents got the chance. Our teacher said we would all be located to Arlington Regional he also mentioned that this school was going to be not only ours, but for a wide amount of others with the same issues we had. We were going to be with teens from different areas, Eastside, Southside, Corona, and Home Gardens.
The Road to College Coming from a small town where farming and working right after high school is what everyone decides to do, I decided to further my education by going to college. College to some people isn’t even an option, most kids would follow up their families and go work for them or start helping out around their farms or in the family business. Not wanting to be stuck in my hometown for my young years or working right after school I started looking at colleges to get out and go do bigger and better things. Inspiring me to leave my town and go off to college was my parents but most importantly my sister, who was already in college and the first of my family to do so. While looking at colleges to attend I found a good paying job
Happiness is reached when goals are accomplished or are on pursuit of being achieved. When in high school most students are trying to personally develop on who they are. Once they are in college they start to develop personally on whey will be, and what they plan on doing for the rest of their lives. I like many students did not know what to do out of high school, I wanted to go off to college with my friends but my parents had other plans. They knew I was not ready for a four-year college.
Heart Break After months and months of waiting for a decision, I had mentally come up with my own. The money didn’t seem as if it would come through for my brother and I to go to the private school my dad worked at, Hyde Park, so I was mentally prepared to stay at Cedar Park High School for the rest of my high school career. Everything seemed to be pointing at me staying there anyway, the guy I had been in love with since 7th grade asked to get back together the night before, this morning I had just run the Color Run with one of my best friends, and I had just finished hanging out with a group of my favorite people for a school project. It seemed as if God was calling me to stay at Cedar Park, and then when my mom came to pick me from my friends house, she said that one sentence that changed my life; “The money came through, welcome to Hyde Park.”
Going to college hasn’t really been much of a choice for me—same way for walking the stage at graduation in high school. Yeah the “option” to opt out has “always” been there but God forbid I get to make my own choices as an adult by my mother (but that’s something else entirely). My relatives’ continuous badgering, threats, and my patience finally running out after fifteen years of their actions finally “convinced” me to go to college anyways. I mustn’t leave out the fact that I also convinced myself that if I started college early, I would potentially graduate around the same time as one of my favorite cousins and one of my friends. I started taking dual credit courses in high school to shut my mother up about advanced schooling, ended up liking the teachers and how affordable going to a junior college was at the time.
However, my mother slightly explained that it would be a “friendly” divorce. Close to four years later now, my parents are both in new and happy relationships, my eldest sister is newly engaged, and my youngest sister and I are also doing just fine. I haven’t ever been too emotional about my parents’ divorce, but it still has affected me however. It has frightened me for my future, and I wonder if I will ever find the right person to marry. For if my parents get a divorce after three children and seventeen years of marriage, what could then be the definition of love?

I was supposed to graduate May 2015 with my degree in accounting but I decided not to be afraid and I picked up my degree in management with the mind set she would hang in for one more year. That summer I went home to be with my family and she died on June 22, 2015. I was depressed and angry with myself because if I would have decided to graduate and not pursue my second degree she would have been around to see me obtain my degree. I could have showed her that I made it like she always said I would. I wanted her to be proud of me.
If I had never become an ambassador as Bloomfield High School Miss Nashdoi, I wouldn’t be able to feel comfortable being out of my comfort zone. It taught me to be away from my parents for a week by traveling to different places and being on my own without the help from my parents. Learning to interact with children to elderly people. Being able to consider what life must offer with accepting opportunities that are given. It became my first time becoming an ambassador for my high school and my community.
