COLLEGE. It's very simple seven-letter word yet it oozes with a great sort of varied meanings. When people hear or see the word COLLEGE, negative things like homeworks, thick textbooks, surprise quizzes, utterly mind-exploding exams, and the unexcusible professors come to mind. Yes, it's partly true but we all have to look at the positive side. Many successful and well-established people would say that college determines what your life is going to be. It's like the door of opportunities and the ladder to success. Others say it's a tremendous step to adulthood and to the real world. The list is endless and I could go on hours enumerating what college means to people. But what does college really mean to me alone? Twelve years ago, I envisioned school as a playground where I can run and and have fun with my classmates. When I started my elem. education, it was not difficult for me. I nvr have to stay up all night and study hard bcos I know I would still get a good grade. Everything was pretty easy back then. But when I've reached HS, I started to feel pressured and I know the lessons are becoming harder and more complex. If I wanted a high grade, I would gather books and study all my notes overnyt. That's when I realized everything was shifting from easy to difficult; everything was changing. And in my last yr in HS, people started to talk abt college. I often as myself "Wat do I want 2 be in the future?". I imagined myself as a teaher, biologist, policewoman, and an engineer. Do I want 2 go 2 college? Of course, I do! No matter how hard college is, as people wud say, I will face it willingly and w/ a strong heart bcos I know it would make something good out of myself. I will do what I want and give my best shot. The bottom line? College is my dream that I hope I will pass through. And it's my ticket to the long ride of achieving my goals in life.
