An accomplishment in my family , focuses on my mother. Her transition from childhood to adulthood took a turn when she was the first in the family to go to college. That then had a chain reaction , because many years later my older cousins started going to college. She was a influence upon it. She was a motivation towards them. They wanted to have careers that they would enjoy. And every one who went to college didn’t like it but , look where they are not. I remembered having a talk with one of my older cousins , She told me , when you get older you’ll understand. But for now keep watching your cartoons. I reflected on those things later in life.
Years ago , I tried to figure out what college was for . Thoughts were racing through my mind. Is it fun? Is it like high school work? Do you have to be a nerd? How can you fit in? Through out my life i’ve seen many college related things. I remember when my father attended Devry University. He was working on a project , the goal was to get the cars to move using a certain amount of electrical wires. I watched him work on it for about half an hour. I thought to my self , wow he’s super smart. I want to be smart too just like my parents.
All though my elementary school days , I thought about what college would do for you in life. I used to think college was an instant ticket to success. It would make you rich in the snap of a finger. The people who didn’t go had enough money. For example
( Bill Gates , Rich rappers who dropped out and became hit sensations , etc.) I used to have alot of questions. My mother told me about her college experiences , I then woke up and smelled the Coffee. College is really hard. Especially getting degrees. The higher you would like to go , the more years of experience it takes to do so.
