“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” Marilyn Monroe
Well I'm starting my second year at a new uni campus, so I'm mainly looking forward to making some new friends, as well as seeing some old faces from highschool. Also want to see what there is to do around campus.
Every second closer spent in school is another second closer to getting out of school.
Unless I actually decide to finally go to college, then it's one second closer to getting a degree I might actually want. But that's then so I don't have to worry about it now, being 19 and out of school and all.
I'm looking forward to finishing my last year of college and to start applying for jobs.
That's the wrong order!! Start applying before you graduate for a head start over your peers. I got an internship the summer after my junior (3rd) year of college/university and I stuck with it until I graduated, where it turned into a full time job. Meanwhile, the majority of people wait weeks or months after it's too late to get a jump on the job market.
I've never taken education seriously.
I was a slacker and was far too arrogant for my own good. I was smart, but not smart enough to solely rely on it.
I never studied. I never did my homework. I relied on my high test scores to keep my grades up.
It didn't always work, and I have hit rock bottom a few times. The worst thing was that the teachers knew that I could be better, and some have even told me that they see potential in me, but I just ignored them and went along with my day.
I am just trying to my education more seriously, because if I mess this up, it is game over.
Everyone around is complaining about school. They are all whining about the monotony and the work they do. I can't complain. This is my last shot. My wake up call may save me in the end.
