What is the American dream? It is the open door for thriving and achievement. The motivation behind my advanced education is to extend my brain and to discover my energy in my preferred field. As indicated by Richard Kalhlenberg in his article ““ The Purposes of Higher Education,” write that 82% of those from higher-income families get a bachelor’s degree by age 24, compared with just 8% from low-income families according to those statistics, that percent is only a bit higher for middle class families being that it is likely that 82% of students descended from a wealthy background will indeed pursue and earn a bachelor’s degree by age 24. To the extent the American dream, it is conceivable to acquire however it is not a simple street to travel.

The American Dream is lived by few, and coveted by numerous. The fantasy itself comprises of belonging and status, for example the auto you claim or the position held at the occupation you work and the territory you live in. They will choose how excessive there house will be and conveniences inside, and to incorporate where their kids go to class, this school will be viewed as one of the best in their general vicinity.

In a democracy a higher education can allow you to become one of the great American leaders, according to Richard kahlenburg The purposes of Higher EducationThomas Jefferson famously wanted the United States to be led by a “natural aristocracy of “virtue and talent” rather than an “artificial aristocracy” based on wealth and birth. And a system of free public education, coupled with accessible higher education, was critical, in his view, to producing America’s leaders.”. With that being said someone who peruses a higher education is more likely to become one of Americas great leaders although there not from a wealthy background. You can still dream beyond your means and live your dreams.

The American dream is what you want it to be. While seeking after advanced education I will discover my energy and reason in life. Whatever it will be, it will be for me and I will work at it to the best of my capacity. It is essential for me to do this in light of the fact that later on I try to be a built up person. One day, I will be the individual that somebody will turn upward to. As a result of me, they will realize that information is brilliant. The American dream for me is Higher education.

The skills you achieve in college will take you to places that you would have never envisioned you would go to. Higher education is something that is esteemed by me, and I can dare to dream the same for those inside my era. Regardless of what my wage level you may have is.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.


7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Crossroads

Trying to figure out what to do in life.

88
views

I never saw the crossroad

Where I could cross n' roam

Under an arch or dome. [1]

I just kept on the road

That was laid out,

Told to hold out

Till it pays out. [2]

Now I think its too late

Been walking too long,

Classes are all wrong

But masses too strong. [3]

So I follow with my head down

And chest up, succeeding cause

I'm too scared to fuck it up. [4]

But I have a need to lead,

Top-down and gears up

Leaving nothing to the dust.

But if I drop out, I'm a fuck up. [5]

Is it better to live and rust

Or drive till it busts

With trust you can find the way? [6]


[1] - Play on roam/Rome. Starts the poem by expressing the feeling of being trapped in my path in life. I felt like I never got the chance to figure out what I wanted to do.

[2] - I think a lot of it was I was following what people told me I should be doing.

[3] - I have a feeling that it is too late to change my course of life. I'm in a college for business, taking classes about business, and everyone around me wants to do business.

[4] - This is saying that even though I am not passionate about what I am doing I am still trying to succeed only because I'm scared of failing or quitting.

[5] - I want to leave and lead myself, do something where I'm not following but I don't know how to do that. This part starts a car reference, idk I've been watching Formula 1 on Netflix and its dope.

[6] - This is the question I've been asking myself, wondering if I should continue on with my path or follow my passion.
