    I Wouldn't Trade It For Anything

    Yes, it was hard work, and frustrating at times, but I'm proud of finishing in 4 years. When challenges come, I know I have it in me to get tough things done.

    I am a college graduate

    and so proud of that fact. I graduated from The Ohio State University with a 3.9 grade point average. My major was in computer science. Prior to graduation, I had been officially offered and gladly accepted that position in a federal government capacity.

    I am writing a statement of purpose

    for a grad school program and I feel like i have no idea what I am doing. I'm suppose to explain why I'm interested in the program and everything I write just feels like generic, cliche, garbage fluff.

    And What Has It Gotten Me...?

    Nothing, other than a shitload of student loan debt and worthless piece of paper that I can't even be bothered to buy a frame for. Unless you're a doctor or a theoretical physicist, college degrees really don't mean a whole hell of a lot in this society. Sorry...rant over.

    I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology

    last year. Studying psychology has taught me a great deal about myself, because I suffer from mental illness. Mental illness is something I understand and can relate to.
