College Life at a Glance

Posted: August 5, 2017 in Uncategorized

It all began in the summer of 2015, I had just recently graduated and I needed to head off to do something with my life. In all honesty, I did not know what I wanted to do. Even to this day, I’m not 100% sure what I want to do. I just took the option that was the easiest, or should I say I took the option that didn’t need too much thinking. I chose to leave home to pursue pharmacy. Now you might be thinking, How is pharmacy easy? I say it’s easy because that’s the option that my dad gave me, so I took it. I mean what else did I have to lose?

Moving forward, I went to summer school at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University to be exact. I just went about life and continued doing what I did in high school. That was a big mistake! I failed a class due to neglect and procrastination. I passed the other classes with flying colors though, however that doesn’t help my gpa too much with the failed class added to it. I was scared. I mean I was beyond scared because I’ve never failed anything like a test or even a class. I was horrified that my parents would kill me (figuratively), so I hid it from everyone. And, I mean everyone.

Fast forward to the fall semester, I took my classes and passed all of them this time, but then an issue arises. Financial aid, my arch nemesis. I had to stop school for a period of time because of funding, but that didn’t stop me. This time I was determined to do something with my life. At this point, I wasn’t living and just doing things because my dad told me to. I was moving forward because I wanted it. I wanted to pursue a better life for my own desire and not someone else’s. I had to struggle with financing my school, apartment, and even for food itself. Loans were impossible for me to obtain because of credentials, but I managed to pay everything of pocket thanks to the help my parents and work.

Presently, I am able to start the fall semester soon after much labor and a little bit of depression. I know that I didn’t go into full details about everything that happened and that is because I’m not ready to give a full story and spill the beans. I just wanted to give encouragement to someone else that is struggling to let him or her know that they aren’t the only ones struggling with college life, or even life in general. Things can happen, but that’s okay because you will find yourself in the end. I now have something I want to pursue, good friends, and a loving boyfriend. It’s not the end.
