Reflective Essay: Why Am I Graduate From High School

Good Essays
High School Graduation Most people rejoice when they graduate because they finished their high schools. Also, people will consider and treat them as adults, but I was not one of them. I was sad when I graduated from high school because I lost my direction and aim in life. I was saying myself to myself, “just graduate from high school and everything will be ok”. After I graduated, I did not know what to do or where to go and that was because the last year in high school, I applied to the wrong university, and I could not decide which major I wanted. First of all, I faced a problem in the last year of high school. They brought us instructors that do not know how to explain the materials because it was their first year to teach and they were …show more content…
I studied for a semester and a half before I dropped out the university. The reason that made me drop out was because I realized that I do not want to be a doctor and I just entered there because I did not get accepted in my first choice and that was wrong in my opinion. Because in medicine, I am going to treat people and if I do not like it, I will not make any progress. Also, I might kill someone because my lack of knowledge. It is like shooting someone in the head with a gun because I knew that I do not like this field from the beginning. When I told my parents that I am going to drop out the university, they refused to listen me and said that “what are you going to do is wrong.”. Also, they called my relatives to put pressure on me. In that moment I felt like I was a paralyzed person. I felt like everyone moves me the side that they like and tell me what to do or what not to do. Although I know my parents did that to me because they love me, I decided to drop out the university and force them to deal with reality. My father was gloomy because I dropped out and he nearly did not speak to me for two weeks. I tried to him tell that I want to find and discover life destiny. Also, I told him that leaving my university is not the of world. Finally, he was …show more content…
Also, your progress in life will depend on your passion about your major. After I left my university, I stayed hours thinking about which subject I should major in and why? I chose computer science after thinking, because I like to know how the computer works. Also, this field can change the world around you. For example, we can write a program that translates English scientific books to another language through that people can learn from these books without needing to know English language, so this will help them to develop their countries and that would change the world in some way.

To summarize, people can face disappointing situations as in my case when I entered the wrong university. But that will help them in the same way as my situation helped me. Entering the wrong university was the best thing that ever happened to me because it gave me a dream that I want to catch and I hope people’s disappointing situations help them in a similar way as my situation helped

    I stopped wanting to deal with the consequences of my actions. It would only get worse from there. I met the guy who would be the father of my children my junior year which progressed to me giving up homework completely. He was two years older than me and he was always wanting me with him rather than at school. So when the boy you supposedly love, tells you to go hang out with him if you are anything like me, you blindly go even though you know it's not the best option.…

    In the beginning of this semester, I remember what a nervous wreck I was and how much pressure was put on me. Attending my second semester at UNC Charlotte on academic probation was not my first intention whenever I moved to the city of Charlotte and made the new commitment of attending a four year university. Whenever I was told that I needed to attend a class two times a week so I wouldn’t be kicked out of school, I felt nothing but shame and frustration. I was certain whenever I mentioned to my parents and my girlfriend that I was on academic probation, they would be ashamed of me. I was wrong.…

    Some people I knew thought otherwise. In general, I was told that I was wasting my time at college by trying to receive a degree in education. At the end of my junior year of high school, every student was supposed to meet with our school’s guidance counselor to talk about our future plans. During my meeting with the guidance counselor, I was shocked to hear her belittle my plans. She told me “if you don’t get a degree in a S.T.E.M program you will end up with no job and a load of college debt.” Maybe it was just because I was still a naïve high school student, but I always thought that by becoming a teacher I was part of every program since I taught students the basics needed to learn science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.…
