My senior year of high school my newsfeed was almost always bombarded with the acceptance letter, then that summer my feeds were bombarded with dorm room pictures. But, what about those who didn’t go off to school. The ones who stayed home and went to community college, they evidently get their chance. I am getting my chance. I will be finishing my time at my community college after this year and move on to a four-year university!
This is such an exciting time, but it is so underrated. I get to apply to schools and figure out where I want to go and what will be best for me, but my achievements aren’t seen the same. Lone Star is considered “easy” which devalues my hard work. But, that is not the case at all.
College is college. College is studying and it is hard, even community college. College is something to be proud of, no matter where you attend.
I am excited to be moving on, but I am even more proud of the time I spent at Lone Star. I am proud of the money I saved and the things I’ve learned.
When I graduated high school I wanted to teach high school journalism and now I want to work in youth ministry. My dreams have changed. But, I would have wasted time and money taking classes I possibly did not need to take. My time at community college gave me a second to breathe and really figure out what I wanted to do and where I wanted to do it.
Going to community college is not something to be ashamed of and it a great option, but it is also a stepping stone and I am SO excited to see where I will end up! So far I have been accepted into Sam Houston State Univeristy, but there are an endless amount of possibilities!
