The way in which you grow up, mature, and find out who you really are, is something you can't accomplish without going to college.
The feeling of being home sick, the loneliness of not knowing anyone, the pressure of playing college football, living with someone you have never met before, are just some of the struggles of being at college for the first time.
I either miss my family, I don’t want to deal with homework or I don’t have rides to go out of campus and enjoy the things that are offered in Redding.
However, I can say that little by little I’m going to grow as the person I dreamed of becoming, the person that my parents wished for me – a person who lives to do whatever it is that I love to do and make the best of it. Phillipian asked us to write a short write about why we decided to enroll into a higher educational school (college).
And of course yes, [college] will be tiring and time consuming, but this is my dream and I am living it.
More than survive, I lived and have enjoyed every step.I could only achieve this by going through college.With this said, I am more than positive that I am where I needed to be.As my first week of college slowly becomes history I can say I survived.I had so many fears and many doubts but in the midst of it all, I decided to keep calm and enjoy every moment that has been granted to me.Now, one of the most scary and nervous things I have done in college is play football.Walking onto a totally new team with all new people you have never met before or seen play makes even the best players nervous.I wish to go back to my community one day and be someone that brings hope and joy.Secondly, I came to college to learn not only academically but also experience life with a different community than the one that I am used to at home.After you are moved in and starting to get used to your new surroundings there is always the tough task of letting yourself out of your shell and meeting all the other people that live around you.Yet, when you start to become friends with the other people in the dorms, it starts to feel more normal and comfortable being away from home.
