When I decided to go back to school, knew that college would help me refresh my brain in certain areas that I may need improvement on. I also returned to school because I want a job that will fit with me. Since I have been out of high school, I have had quite a few jobs. The jobs that were employed at, I knew that those jobs were what I did not want to have a career out of for the rest of my life. So, after all the different jobs I had back to back and me not being satisfied with either one.
I pick these main two goals because my kids are my life so they come first. I want to do the best I can with raising them and being there. Getting this degree will really help me set my future up and my two kid’s future also. I picked school as a goal of mine because my first time around, I didn’t show up a lot. I got a job and made some decent money so I decided I didn’t care for school.
Growing up, my mom pretty much told me that if I was not joining the military then I was for sure going to college. And I was okay with that. I knew that going to college would give me a better job so I could maintain a stable lifestyle; but that’s the thing, it never crossed my mind that I need to go to college for a better education. In today’s society, in order for people to have a good job outside of professional sports, music entertainment, and military, they have to have a college education in order for them to maintain a decent job. So far into my college experience, I can tell that some of my classmates and peers have that mindset.
The University of La Verne’s core values have been present in my life throughout the years. Even though my mother wanted to attend college as I did, she didn’t have the option to so and that’s why she encourages me to try my hardest in school. When my mother was young, she dreamed of attending college in the United States and getting a job so she could support her family, whereas when I was small, I didn’t think school was important. Although my mother only attended elementary school, school was one of her top priorities because she felt like it was an honor to go to school, and if you went to school, you were considered to be lucky. My mother was an over-achiever and saw education as a way of showing that she was better than most.
My son Kaleb was born May 24 2008, and from that moment on I wanted to give him everything he deserves. I tried to go back to college right after my son was born, but I had no idea what I wanted to do for my future and taking care of Kaleb wasn't cheap. I was constantly working to pay for the expenses of Kaleb, while paying for the rest of the expenses I had. Finally four years later, I made the best decision I could for my family and that was going back to school. One of the many reasons why I came back was that I did not was to continue being in a factory the rest of my life.
All about Me Jennifer Webb COLL 100 I026 Fall 11 American Public University Eleanor Hewitt My name is Jennifer Webb and I am going to write an essay about why I decided to go back to school. I got tired trying to found a decent job, I wanted my daughters to follow in myself steps and go to college. I learned that most jobs are looking for some kind of college degree. I have been out of school for awhile and so I was a little nervous but after getting started I feel more comfortable with going to school. I want my daughters to always know that you can never get to old to learn new things.
The author talked about a more personal experience, one she had with her son. She talked about how she sent her son off to college but he only went because his friends were going and for the “college experience.” Basically she felt like he was going no where and wasting time and money, so she pulled him out of college to think on things and his life. A year later he landed a good job and is working towards becoming a manager. Succeeding without the help of college So in the end, as quoted by the author, her son basically had his own “graduation day” and he is doing this all without the help of college. So it is possible to succeed in life without the back up of a college degree, you just have to work hard for what you want.
I think if she would have ask him questions instead of letting him do all the talking, she would have seen that he was up to no good. I think all relationship start out with interpersonal conflicts. The reason why I say that is because, no one tells the truth when you first meet someone. You never ask the question that you need to ask. And no one tell you what you need to know about them when they first meet.
I'd have let her stay. Birling: (rather angrily) Unless you brighten your ideas, you'll never be in a position to let anybody stay or to tell anybody to go. It's about time you learnt to face a few responsibilities. That's something this public-school-and-varsity life you've had doesn't seem to teach you. Eric: (sulkily) Well, we don't need to tell the inspector all about that, do we?
I want to be able to have a good career and succeed in life. That means being able to support myself and my family. Having a decent job from going to college could change someone’s life. I want to be proud of myself for going to college. Throughout the years in high school I never really thought about my future until my senior year.
