I created a goal for myself to prove not only to myself, but to others, that I am capable of accomplishing anything. I started changing my reputation by deciding on a career, applying for college, and getting a full time job. This was a huge step in the right direction because I was already a step further than my mother’s job as a waitress. Even though I find myself being constantly misunderstood, I feel trying to prove myself verbally is less effective than putting words into action. Through the years, these experiences have shaped who I am today.
Being a student at Cowley has influenced me to live life naturally. This was the first thing on my list of changes. To live a life naturally, I feel it is important to just go with the flow instead of trying to plan every little detail. I’m someone who will try to plan every little detail of her life. If I could, I’d have a set schedule for every detail of my life for the rest of my life, but I’m realizing that’s not how I’m meant to live life.
Well, my plans changed when everyone I knew was telling me not to do that because I would most likely not go back. I also saw friends that were older than I was take that break, and then regret it when all of their friends were graduating without them. I changed my mind pretty quickly after hearing about and witnessing their mistakes and decided to go to college right out of high school after all. But after attending Shasta College for just a few weeks, I realized that I actually liked going to school. I found a whole new love for learning.

The disorientation that happened in the past has allowed me to redefine myself as someone who is motivated and excited for my new journey at Saint Mary's College. I have realized that I had to abolish my past experiences in order for me to transition into my new
I decided to be more open minded towards new situations, and to become a part of something. I would get self-conscientious and distance myself away from not only society but from my family. I wanted to show that I do care about my future to my friends, to my family, to my peers, and to everyone who I came across with. I did not want them to see me as a failure like I saw myself. During those years, I wanted to gain the courage to explore my life like I used to, and relive my past before I felt this way.
Vague Thesis: How my brain keeps trying to make me go to college. I like a lot of people didn’t go to college straight out of High School. I took a year off. I did nothing. I went to school for a semester and realized I couldn’t pay for it and that what I thought I had wanted to do my whole life sucked and I hated it.
Sufferings are blessings in disguised. In order to find meaning in my life, I shifted my point of view and decided to live a life full of festivity. God was not being unfair to me.

If people would just step back and realize that if they can just be themselves they would be a lot happier with themselves.

I do not blame my family or peers for this behavior that I accuired, I should have known better and not let the enviorment change me.
I could see that part of me that caused me harm was starting to show itself and I would act, clearing my mind completely before anything could take hold. As well as eradicating negativity, I also forced my mind into happiness through focus and meditation. Nothing has changed my life more since the realization that I had to make who I was something that I chose, and not something that just happened. Since this revelation nothing seemed the same anymore, as though I could see the world through new eyes. It changed everything from my taste in music, literature, and movies.
