College is calling for me. Is it calling for you?

For me the question was never "Why college?”, but rather "Which college?"  But now I know what I am doing here. I always knew that my career options and financial potential would be very limited without a college education. But as of yesterday I have figured out my calling. My goal was to become a communication major and go work for TV. But I don't think that, that is going to be enough for me. I want to do something that is going to make a difference in the world. One thing that I am very passionate about is politics and how we can fix this country and get people back on their feet and to keep us as the best country in the world. We live in the greatest country in the world and the thing that makes us great is that there are an unlimited amount of options for us. You can do anything that you put your mind to as long as you work hard to get there. College is good for fine tuning your skills so that when you join the workforce you will be able to get the best job that you can.

When you are in high school you are learning an array topics and some if not most you will probably never use. So college is good for picking that one thing that you are passionate about and focusing your time to perfect those skills that are needed. In high school it is very easy to make social groups because you have been going to school with the same people since you were little so everyone knows everybody. College takes your social skills to an all new level. You have to go out on your own to meet new people and make new friends. It helps you step out of your comfort zone and get you prepare for the real world. No one is there to hold your hand anymore.
So I chose to go to college and get a degree to better my future. Although I am just a freshman and things can change in my life at the drop of a hat I know that college is the only thing that is going to get me where I want to be. For me it has always been my goal to go to The University of Georgia and that will be my next goal. As long as I work hard and keep doing what I'm doing I have no doubt in my mind that I can make it there. I kind of slacked off in high school and didn't apply myself they way I should have. So if I could give any advice to high school students it would be that high school is not a joke there is more to high school than just being popular. College will open up a whole new world for you and can make you a better person as long as you let it. College can teach you so many things that you proabably never even thought about. But you have to want to go to college to make it beneficial to you. 

But there are bad things about college too...     


  1. I agree. College does take your social skills to a new level it gives people a chance to interact with different people. College is what you make it.

  2. I agree with what you said about college and how it takes you social skills to the next level and also i like the colors you have picked for your blog!
