Finding the Right Time to Go Back to School
I went to college fresh out of high school like my mother wanted me to. I even went to the same college she had graduated from. By the end of the first semester I was convinced I wasn't cut out for college. I failed almost all my classes and was so homesick I could hardly breathe. So I dropped out.
Now, five years later, I have re-entered the college life. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was shocked to find out that I love school. I love the interaction with students and professors. I enjoy the hard work it takes to maintain good grades. I wasn't ready mentally or emotionally the first time around. After surviving the adult world for a couple years and seeing how much a college degree would benefit me I was finally ready.
I won't have my bachelor's degree for another four to five years, but I'm okay with that. I'm going to enjoy the ride.
