    Rather...

    I want to go BACK to College...I want to go to Law school, and be a prosecutor, but who knows if that will ever happen. Just a silly dream of mine so my parents use to tell me. Who knows, maybe one day I will get back to school, but not this year.

    Ppe Degree

    I want to get a PPE  (Philosophy, Politics, and Economics) degree. I have no clue what precisely I want to do after college; I just know I want to help the world somehow, and with that, I think I'll have quite a bit of options.

    Applying to colleges is probably one of the

    most stressful things I've had to do. I don't know what's worse, getting all the documents and essays and things completed, or waiting for an acceptance or rejection.

    Most non-Argentinian people would call me lucky

    because college in my country is free. Yep, in Argentina you can become a doctor without spending a single penny. However I am going to college in two years and it really scares me, because I think I'll feel alone and exposed as all my friends won't be there.
