First Time Student
Going to college is a big decision among students once they have entered high school. If you’re a drop out like me then you can realize that it wasn’t a very big thing for me. I had to take the QCC GED test in order to get to attend college somewhere. Although years after I took that test; I decided to actually do something about it. So I enrolled into Quinsigamond Community College and started in the middle of September. I had no other choice to attend this school because I was a drop out. Since then college life has been as interesting as someone being thrown through a flaming circle in the circus.
I dropped out of high school twice; once when I was a junior and the second was when I was a senior. High school wasn’t really where I wanted to be. I was placed into an “alternative education” classes. It wasn’t considered special education classes though don’t get that idea. The A.E. periods I was taking was English 9/10; Math Connections; And English 11/12. These classes were where the kids who would just wear their headphones or just sleep. I had no other choice but to attend these under-supervised classes. I got tired of the classes over time though. So I dropped out in 2004. Living next to the high school was rather beneficial for me. Students would skip class and walk seven houses down and be at my house. It was insane I had over 10 kids in my house at one time because my mother would work 7AM-7PM every day. I went back to school in 2005 and dropped out once again. Over those years I have moved far and wide around the North East. Those six years were fun I was doing temp jobs which led me to learn tasks to actually get a real job. In 2011 I needed to move back home and the fun spiraled down to just a crawl. So I made the decision to try and better myself. I decided to start the quest on the way to becoming somewhat of a professional in the human services field. So with my GED in hand I started applying to a few colleges.
