College Student Seeking Answers…For Everything

Another semester, gone. Done. Then comes another one.

Just like high school, I realize that the breaks for Christmas and Summer are not final, and that there is another round of first days ahead. New teachers, new lessons, new classmates.

What about after graduation, though? I’m familiar with the world of retail. That’s about it.

I’ve been thinking lately, which can be good or bad. Depends. There is going to be a final day of classes. Finals that will determine a degree, which will then guide me to a career.

Realization: I’m in my third year of college. About to get an Associate’s. In a few years it will be a Bachelor’s. After that? Life?

When graduation time comes, it will be the end. Sure, I can choose to go for a Master’s(not very likely), but that is my choice.

Choices and I have a bad track record.

Freshman Fall: Went away to school. Two hours away. Missed my job. Moved home.

Freshman Spring-Sophomore Spring: Community College. Worked a lot. Applied to a University. Accepted.

Junior Fall(no pun intended)-Don’t go to classes at my new school. Back at community. Getting an Associate’s.

No, not too bad. You got the short and sweet version. Oh, and major-wise?

Pre-Med Biology turned into Pre-Health Professions turned into Health Information Management which turned into Corporate Communications.

The previous University that I left for Community is not the same University I will be attending in the Spring either. Haha. Sigh.

A whole new plan. That will hopefully give me even more insight into what I want to do.

What do I want to do? Woah. Let’s not even go there. That’s like, a million decisions ahead.

Have you found the answers yet?





In the past three years…

I’ve been enrolled in three different schools. Truth.

I made it one semester at a Pitt branch campus(2011) two hours from my home. That December I moved back home and enrolled in a community college, worked my ever so exciting retail position, and saved up for a car.

After another three semesters I enrolled at Pitt Main Campus(2013). On the first day of classes I was a wreck and couldn’t beef up enough courage to go.

So here I am. Back at community. Getting an associates degree. Accepted to another university for the spring of 2014.

For people who are not sure of where to go, what to do, who to be: BEYOU. Don’t get mixed up a college lifestyle that doesn’t suit who YOU are. Make decisions. Live with these decisons. I wholeheartedly support every choice I have made thus far. I’ve been embarrassed, ashamed, but most of all HAPPY.

Keep it up kids. You’ve made it this far(no one has to know how) so keep trudging.
