    In Walden on Wheels, Ken Ilgunas argues that "there is nothing liberating about leaving college; I 'd ended one series of obligations only to enter into another" (40). Being a college senior is the end road toward receiving a diploma, that certifies the completion of a certain undergraduate program, and most senior would like to achieve this end game in order to possible work in the field that interest them and pays off their college debts. Yes, I believe that after graduation the newly graduated students don 't have to face certain obligations anymore, that only a college student has to face, anymore but will have to face new sets of obligations and dependency. In the current society we live in, there are more chances for a person who has been to college to be successful in life, than a person who has decided to avoid college and directly start at a low wage job. This leads many high school graduates to jump into college with one objective to be successful in life and this will make young inexperienced teenagers take a student loan in order to be able to go to college. Ilgunas states that "I went to high school because I was forced to; I went to college because I was supposed to, and now I 'd enter Career World because I was financially obligated to" (11). Ilgunas clearly states that after college comes new obligations which would be to enter the career world because of money, that will be used to pay off the debts that had been accumulated during college and even goes on…

    Five days. Five days is all it took to save me from myself. Five days in an anxiety ridden place. Five days separated from the stress. Five days apart from the place that I call home. As you know, I am not always the happiest of people. The world can seem like a dark place and I don’t always know why. You have helped me in so many ways, and I am more grateful than you know, but, as you have figured out, one day it all became too much. The stress, the anxiety, the depression… it was overbearing.…

    Unlike the majority of my classmates, I never had the opportunity to put on a cap and gown for a graduation ceremony. Like most people, my high school career lasted about 4 years. I made As and Bs for the most part, but never did earn my high school diploma. This made me feel as though high school was a complete waste of time. After all, I had nothing to show for it. A few months after my classmates graduated from high school, I earned my GED. I learned more from the experience of earning my GED…

    Chris’s blind arrogance and views of society are shown throughout the film; however, a scene in particular is his graduation sequence where the director uses cinematography, voice over, and dialogue to portray this. It is clear Chris has no respect or pride in graduating. This is shown to us by the way he jumps on stage when his name is called. Straight after a mid shot of Chris’s parents is shown who look appalled by Chris’ behaviour, followed by a close up of Chris fathers face who doesn't…

    silence with "who cares your dad shouldn 't have taken you off your meds" Slightly making me feel better, because I had some one else to blame, like the teenager I was. I stared off into my backyard where poorly hung streamers lined my fence. Random kids talking so loud about how excited they were for summer and where they were moving for school. I then replied "yeah your right, but who am I going to sit with at lunch?" while they all just laugh I 'm actually being serious. I then just hit…
