My College Life really came to mind when I realized how normal, boring, and yet quirky college can be. It’s aimed for any audience, but perhaps those who aren’t featured in school the same way I am.
I’m a rare student to come across, for I like education and I enjoy the learning environment. However, I do not like doing homework nor studying for that matter, so I tend to resent school. You may find contradictions hiding beneath my words often, because I tend to be an easily-persuaded, indecisive person.
By the end of senior year of high school in 2011, I made my decision to attend Suffolk University in Boston for Print Journalism. Financially, it was not. So after all of that hard work into my college essays, money and time spent on applications and college visits, requested off dates from work and school, my mother and I collectively agreed on withdrawing from SU and to attend a good, solid and affordable community college close by. Welcome to the start of My College Life.
After two fast years at Brookdale Community College, I transferred to Syracuse University, where I currently study English and Magazine. It’s hard and depression has taken its toll on me, creating roadblocks and instilling fear, but this is just another post in My College Life.
After a year and a half off from school to work on myself and my finances, and after an extensive cross-country road trip, I am finally in my last semester of college, almost completing My College Life–and honestly I’m nearly relieved.
