Asher Who?

Not sure which college Asher Roth attended when he wrote his song, “I Love College,” because, man, my college experience is nothing like his song. 
Sometimes it’s hard and you get discouraged as an adult still attending college. I find myself 6 years down the road and barely considered a college junior. From community college to transferring to a university, my life seems be moving at such a slow pace. Sometimes I question my paths and sometimes I want to give up. I think about how hard I’ve worked to make my parents proud, until I finally realize I need to do this for myself. I live a life full of obstacles and roller coaster emotions but I’m proud of how far I’ve come. And as many times as I continue to fall, I will always pick myself back up until I’ve reached that finish line. 

Personal Thursdays

It’s crazy how encouraged college is. Can’t get a job without a bachelors, some even a masters. And even if you spend all of your time busting your a** trying to get these degrees, getting a job after graduation isn’t guaranteed. We spend all of this time, and especially MONEY, for what? To get the sh*tty end of the stick and be stuck with nothing? If it’s so encouraged to get a higher education, why is it so difficult for us to put that education and hard work to use? It just makes you question it all. Is it really worth it?

Life is success

As we’re in our early twenties, a lot of us are pushing ourselves to finish school. We struggle because we’re trying to find ourselves and what we’re supposed to do with our lives. There is so much pressure in our generation to be successful and earn a degree, and we’re all so caught up on trying to follow the path to success that we’re not looking around to enjoy the view on the journey, just looking at the ground and going through the motions. Yes, being successful and finishing school is very important, but make it something you enjoy. You can still focus on your studies and have fun and experience life; there is no one stopping you. No matter what you choose to do or don’t do, being yourself is what’s going to get you where you want to be. So don’t lose that you in the journey, enjoy the ride and take it all in. Because when the journey’s over, you’re gonna wish you appreciated it more.
