College Bound or Not: It’s Your Choice

bachhSeeing as it’s October I was going to write about why I love Halloween so much. I love seeing the decorations everywhere and the crunch of new fallen leaves. I thought it might have been a nice topic to write about but something more personal has come up.

I’ve been trying to give college the good ol’ college try for the past two semesters. I’ve changed my major from being a writer, to an artist, to a musician all in the span of a day. I have left school feeling like I didn’t accomplish anything and to be quite honest, I haven’t accomplished anything because none of it is contributing to my dream.

When I was a sophomore in high school I knew that I wanted to be a hair stylist/makeup artist. I didn’t tell a lot of people because I was nervous that they would be quick to judge. As my senior year came to a close the topic of my future came up again. I finally felt the courage to tell the important people in my life what I wanted to do. Most were really supportive of my decision and even bought me make up brushes. There was one person I was really hoping would back me up and support me a. When I did tell them I was met with a hundred reasons as to why I shouldn’t do it. It was so discouraging and left me feeling so hopeless that I decided that I would just do what they wanted and go to community college and get a degree in something.

I regret that so much now. If I had just stuck to me and did what I wanted to do, I could be half way through beauty school right now. Instead I am stuck in 3 classes that I don’t even want to be taking. It leaves me with an empty feeling.

After a really, good, long conversation with someone very near and dear to my heart I have decided to go to cosmetology school regardless of what anybody else says or thinks of my decision. I have to do this for me.

The important thing to take away from this is that when it comes to your dreams and your life. You are the one who gets to decide what to do with it. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks you should be doing you have all the power to make your dreams come true the way you planned it. And if someone tries to tear you down, just show how strong you are by getting through it.
