College... a time for people to think it's away from the parents, a time to drink, a time to go party. But that's not what college is all about, it's about getting an education and becoming something of yourself. I always thought about going to college. I always had the dream of becoming a veterinarian.
But once I started dating my boyfriend, I never wanted to go to college. I'll be honest, I was in that new puppy love stage for the first year, but now, I want to go because I want to become more. I guess I was afraid to lose him, but now, college is my only friend. I just applied at NIU and University of Wisconsin- Parkside, both schools to which my uncles and aunts went to. The school I got into-- CLC. I'm going to try CLC for 2 years and then going to NIU or Parkside. I honestly feel so happy that I got into CLC, I know it's community college, but it's a start.. It doesn't matter what college someone goes to, just the satisfaction that one is getting a start on the college path.
