Not everyone can go to college to better themselves, but I was a lucky one, and I am blessed that I am getting a chance to make a better person out of myself, by going to college. College is important to me. I am the 1st one in my immediate family to go to college so it’s a big deal to everyone. I just do not want to let them down. Another reason why I decided to go to college was because in my recent experience in trying to find a job I realized that you employer takes you more seriously
Ralph upholds the responsibility as chief because he knows he has to somehow guide the boys until they were rescued. Although he is afraid of what lay ahead, he becomes brave and takes position with confidence. Apart from taking a risky position as leader, Ralph shows bravery by taking risks so the other boys do not have to. He, for example, went down to the red cliff where the boys think the beast could be hiding. “...[He] realized with surprise that he did not really expect to meet the beast and didn’t know what he would do about it if he did” (Golding 105).
Not everybody will be as lucky as he has been; I rather just go to college and be assured of a good job and maybe even my own company. Doesn’t it sound like a better idea than just gambling with your life, just because you might find some diamonds laying around in the middle of the jungle?’ ‘I guess it does.’ I said We had to get the sand together, since I wouldn’t be able to do such a thing on my own. Dad told us to get the sand from the construction site; this shouldn’t be such a problem since we already took some six-by-tens at the same site the other day. We still proceeded with caution though, the watchman was still around. We approached the gate to the construction site.
Disconnection from the conformity and systemization of society drives some transcendental-like individuals to figurative, and sometimes literal, periphery. This ideology values spirit and intuitiveness above empirical elements; it measures a human’s goodness by personal experiences with the goodness of nature. In the film Into the Wild, the protagonist, Christopher McCandless, probes for true meaning in and of his existence within the works of one of his favorite authors, Henry David Thoreau, who was the central figure of transcendentalism. Chris manifests similar philosophical ideas, like those of Thoreau, and chooses to withdraw from civilization in order to lead a contented life of self-reliance. Sickened by the conservatism, materialistic context, and hypocrisy of humanity, he embarks on a nomadic journey across the country to acquire an honest home, a new identity, and happiness.
I don’t know why someone risk going to prison and not to defend his or her country. Going to the war doesn’t mean you get to see your family again because you could die before you get to come back home but at least you died for something that means so much for millions of people. Going to war is just the right thing to do because by doing so you maintain the freedom of your country for the next generation. By doing so you gain the respect of your country by defending its honor. The benefits of going to war are also not bad.
Is college different from high school? This is a very common question between students that plain to continue their education after high school. I know many students would think as I did. “Nah College is not that hard, it’s just a little bit different from what we are adapted to.” That’s what I used to think before I started FIU; then, I realized I was wrong; everything is different (at least for me). Being involved in college is such a whole new experience for our future and for our life.
Although these reasons are justifiable my reason for returning to college is for all the reasons above as well as I want more knowledge. It is very funny that my reasons have changed since I have been attending college. At first my reason was the typical I need a degree so I can make more money and get into law school; however I now feel the need and the hunger for more education. Not for anything but myself gratification in knowing that knowledge is power and once you have it this is one thing that ca n not be taken away from you. Upon obtaining my college degree in Organizational Management, I will also continue my education as a Prosecuting Lawyer.
A high school diploma is not enough to land a decent job and make decent money, now you must have a college education and training. So this is another reason why college is important to me. It gives me the training and knowledge I need to go out there in the real world and land the perfect career of my dreams. I want to be able to live comfortably and still go on vacation, and shopping with friends and family and not feel like I cannot spend. This year I will do my best so I can get good education.
Some of them could be at home doing nothing but mere thinking negatively with some fear inside their minds. But once made out their minds, come to the reallity that they need to start a new beginning in their lives. That is why going to college could be a great help on starting that social settlements in students. Who knows the college classmates could be our partners in business or so. No matter if you want to hide those reasons, be strong and positive.
Coming from a completely college driven family, the thought of marriage, kids, and a family life before a degree was absurd. Though my family may seem to be harsh with me, I realized that it’s just because they want me to grow disciplined and most of all educated. The new experiences and pressures in this phase of
