College Or…?

For many students like myself.  Your parents have always told you “you are going to college!”  I heard this all my life.  Whether my grandmother (Grana) or my grandfather, I was always told “college was the plan/goal.”  My first week in college I had a rude awaking.  I realized that I focused so much on getting into college that I never planned on how I would leverage college for my life beyond the four walls of campus life.  I strongly think every person on this earth must be educated, but I think being “educated” comes in a variety of forms.  As you plan for your life beyond high school do not forget that each dream requires a different path.  Make sure you are on the best path to get to your dreams and not the path that someone else told you to get on.  Just a little food for thought.
