    I Don't Like Having Unfinished Goals.

    Even though, I firmly believe that having a college degree in itself does not necessarily measure one's intellect, I don't like having unfinished personal goals. So yes, I do plan on getting back into college to complete my Bachelor's degree in Psychology.
