I always thought that college was going to be how it’s portrayed in movies, but that did not happen. My freshmen year of college, I was doing so well the first week of class (of course everyone does), then I started to have problems in my math class and other classes which made me want to quit school. I went from having all A’s and B’s in high school to having two F’s in two college classes. The reason why I had such a hard time adjusting to college was because I simply did not know how to manage my time. For example, I would privilege for work that wasn’t even completed yet. While everything was falling down on me I would sit at home and think about ways to improve, but for some reason I thought that having a college education didn’t matter. I had already made up my mind that I was going to drop out of college. Despite my frustration, I always thought of ways to improve my situation at the time. I got off all social media and I went ghost as us college students like to call it. I stopped privileging myself so much and started to focus more on school. Changing my ways to improve my situation showed that I still cared about having a higher education. By the end of the semester, I had all A’s and B’s this was the result of my hard work. The purpose of this story is not to brag about my grades, but it is to show that everything I did throughout the semester mattered because if I had completely given up I would not be where I am today.
