College Is The Key To Escape From My Humble Beginnings

Growing up there was not a lot of places for dreams and goals, my entire family has lived in the same town for generations. Of those people not a single one attended, let alone completed, college after high school. They all went on to have a blue collar job, custodian, laborer, fast food restaurant employee. While I love my family more than words can say I wish that they had higher aspirations, and thus, would encourage the next generation to do better than they did. At this point my dream in the sky is to attend and graduate from college and I am not talking about the small community college in our town. I want bigger and need better. My education is the portal to success, a ticket to escape this small Midwest town where people only look forward to dying.

I have debated my choice of major for some time now. It is a tough decision because what I decide will become my career path. I could do something broad, like business, to give myself some time to decide exactly what I would like to do or I could chose a risky major like philosophy and see where it takes me. The weight of this decision is heavy upon my shoulders.

Choosing a post-secondary school is exciting, I am lucky that I was accepted at all of the colleges that I applied at. I have options! I have already decided to study out of state in order to immerse myself in my education, I don’t need any negativity from my family bring me down. I have already begun applying for scholarships and plan to get a part time job on campus. It is so exciting to be on the verge of something new and great. If I am successful in my feat, perhaps it will encourage other family members to pursue their education as well, one can only hope.

Earning a Degree to Further My Career

Unlike many Americans, I didn’t head to college right after high school. At the time, I simply wasn’t ready for it and knew it, so I didn’t spend the money on it. I was able to land a job as an office assistant in an mid-sized company and due to turnover in the accounting staff I began assuming some of the work load in that department and fitting into a full-time position in the field.

Many people consider accounting to be a boring area to work but I find it rewarding. There is a place for everything and everything in its place. There is a certain comfort one can take from the logical field of accounting. My job was initially clerical and data entry, but as I gained experience the work became more complex and involved including various projections and budgeting work and providing information to management to help them make appropriate decisions.

I liked my job, but I began to feel as if my career was needlessly held back by the lack of a college degree. As such, I went back to school and began to pursue my degree which I am well on my way to receiving. What I found out in school was shocking to me. While I considered myself a good worker and as being competent, there was a lot that I simply did not understand until I attended school. It is easy to get lost in the details while in a job, but school was able to put what I am doing in a much wider picture frame which provided me with the base knowledge that I needed to do well at work as well as school.

Even from a few introductory courses in pursuit of my college degree I have become a better worker overall and once I obtain my degree there will be no other factors holding me back. A boss even told me that they have a better position with significantly set aside for me once I get my degree.

Obtaining a college degree may not have been the right decision for me when I was first coming out of high school as I was pathetically immature at the time. Since I have grown up and gained work experience, going back to school now is certainly the right choice. I will be proud to know that I have obtained my degree and have already found that not having a degree will limit what you can accomplish in your job.

It isn’t just that not having a degree will limit your career opportunities. Not having a degree involves not having an education and will limit your ability to critically solve problems that you and your company are facing. I have become a more interesting and well-informed person as a result of pursuing my degree, which can only help me in my career.

I am very excited to be earning my degree and my family will be proud of me as well. Hopefully we will all be able to reap the benefits of my education as well.

Get the Degree and have a bright future

I want to pursue a degree because it is one of the thigns that I know will help my future endeavors. These are just some of the reasons that I think getting adegree will be great for me. I know that I have what it takes to in order to get a degree and I know that it will be a valuable step for my future. A degree is something I can rely on to make money in the future and I know that this is something I can depend on to help me secure my furture. There are so many job options that are avaialble to those with degrees and most of these are high paying options for those who want them.

Of course it helps to pick a good major when you are going for a degree and I plan to look at majors that will help me the most in my life. This is one of the things I can make sure to take advantage of. Some majors in school are a lot more marketable than others so it helps to pick a good one to be able to get the job of your dreams. Many people will use these options to pick a job that will make them a great deal of money in the future and this is what I plan to do as well.

I will get the degree and get the job of my dreams. This is simply one of the things that makes sense to do and get the option of a great job. There are lots of choices of degrees and colleges and universities that can be attended. You owe it to yourself to get a degree. I know I plan to do so, and to make sure I experience all of what life has to offer me.

Staring At My Book At Midnight

Sometimes I wonder why I am doing this, It’s Friday night and all of my friends are out on the town having the time of their life. Yet, here I am stuck looking at this book trying to memorize the facts before my final tomorrow. Sometimes I wish i was out there but then I remember that it will all be worth it at the end. All of my friends will look up one day and realize they have not accomplished anything with their life. All I have to do is hang in there for 2 more months and it will all be over. Then the real struggle will begin, and I will have to start looking for a job.

Getting my degree is one of my lifetime goals, and finally being able to get it feels amazing. With my degree in hand I will be able to finally quit my job. Don’t get me wrong I like my job but I don’t want to be installing roofs for the rest of my life. I rather be sitting in an office with the air conditioner on full blast. I think I earned the office with the air conditioner on full blast, and I am intending on using it to its full capabilities. I might sound like I am rambling about an air conditioner but you have to understand that installing a roof in the middle of a heat wave is no day in the park. This degree will not only make my life easier but it will provide a better life for my loved ones.
