I may have mentioned by now that I am a college student. I'm just a girl who is trying to figure out her path.
Come to find out, I don't know if college is meant for me. Yeah, I'll have an associate's in May – I did my trial. I've just found that college won't help me in the long run. Sure, you'll have a degree in something, and sometimes having a degree is good, but other people make more money without needing one.
Sometimes college isn't for everyone, and that's OK.
College has given me an idea of what I'll need for life. By this May, I'll have my associate's in English. Yeah, it has been put to good use. This English degree is helping me get my Certified Deaf Interpreter's License or CDI. So, I guess it is a good thing.
I never told my parents that I would have a degree in English. Honestly, I wasn't sure if I wanted to major in English. But I did it anyway and went to get some perceptive on the subject.
It's much better that I am going to have something on my back when I get my CDI.
Some people don't go to college for great jobs, they just need the skills to do a job that doesn't require a college degree. With my fluency in American Sign Language or ASL, I could have my CDI in less than six months.
I could work without a degree and still make good money.
My parents didn't go to college. They don't care what I do with my life, just as long I am happy and am on a good path.
Some people go back to college in their 40s or 50s, and they are glad that they did it. They did it for them and not for anyone else.
I took a lot of courses in high school that got me where I am right now, so I'm thankful for my parents helping me get started. The courses I took in high school helped me get started on my future, and my parents' help kept me on track. I'm not so far behind.
While I was getting help for my depression and anxiety, I took online classes to stay on track. I'm truly thankful for the chance to do online classes. I'm going far in life.
Maybe riding horses, being a CDI and working is just what I need to do nowadays. You never know what might come in the future. You cannot plan it.
Just go with the flow.
