God forbid if there's someone on CC that is even REMOTELY thinking that. :P
All kidding aside, let me explain.
Throughout my life, it has been hammered into my brain that I absolutely must go to college or else I will end up homeless and die and god knows what else. So what did I do? I started worrying about my GPA, my ECs, the awards I should get, what I should do over the summer, etc. But I have been asking myself this seemingly simple question: Why do I want to go to college?
And I can't answer it. It depresses me, because I've been taking Pre-AP/"higher-level" classes since middle school, (I'm a freshman) thinking all the while that this would help me to obtain something that I THOUGHT I wanted.
Sure, you could say that I don't need to worry right now, I'm a freshman, but high school goes by FAST. I can't be a freshman forever, sadly. (Actually, more like "thank god," but that's not the point. :P)
I have two questions for you, members of CC: Why do you want to go to college & what do you think of people who turn down the opportunity to do so?
