My Essay....

My reasons for college are probably just like everyone else’s. I went to college because I wanted a better life for myself. I wanted to find a job that I would not be living paycheck to paycheck like my parents have to. I mean, who really wants a life like that? I know I did not want that, and that is why I wanted to go to college, even more than is the main reason why I wanted to go to college. Another reason was I wanted to get a better education other than just a High school Diploma. Not many places would take many serious if they just had a High school Diploma. My final reason for wanting to go to college was that I wanted that college experience. I was fortune enough to get into college, so why not take advantage of it, and get the real college experience, since I did not really have that, High school Experience, this was my chance, to make up for it.

    My main reason for wanting to go to college is that I wanted to have a better life. I didn’t want to live my life, paycheck to paycheck, and worrying about weather or not, I am going to have enough money to pay to keep a roof over my head. My parents never went to college, and while they both have decent jobs, and make Okay money, its still would be easier for them, if they had gone to college, but they did not have the opportunity that I did. Not everyone can go to college to better themselves, but I was a lucky one, and I am blessed that I am getting a chance to make a better person out of myself, by going to college. College is important to me. I am the 1st one in my immediate family to go to college so it’s a big deal to everyone. I just do not want to let them down.

    Another reason why I decided to go to college was because in my recent experience in trying to find a job I realized that you employer takes you more seriously if you have more than just a high school diploma. I don’t want to be working at some fast food joint my life, and hardly having enough money to support not only myself, but also my family. Being in college, and getting a degree in whatever my heart desires, will open up so many doors for me. It would help me get a job that I not only like, but one that I look forward to going to everyday, and one that will make me feel like I am actually accomplishing something with my life.

    My last reason, but not my least important reason is, that I decided to go to college, because when I was in high school, I moved in the middle of my junior, away from people that I had gone to school with most of my life, and had grown up with, so when we cane to Florida it was all new for me, and it made me very anti-social. I did not do the whole, high school experience at all. So a big reason why I wanted to go to college was so I can experience that. It was a huge dream of mine, to have friends, to be social, to really be a teenager, or a young adult. I am hoping by being in College, I will be able to experience that.

    So overall, college is going to be a great thing for me, not just because it says “Oh look at me, I went to college” but because I am doing something to make myself become a better person. So far, I love college, it has been a great thing for me, and I know in the end, it will really pay off, and turn me into someone that I want to be.
