It’s hard to believe that my junior year of college is almost ending and that I will be a senior in…
After I receive that bright, shiny diploma, and I am no longer required to attend school, I plan on running away to join a circus. I am an amazing tightrope walker.
Just kidding. I have terrible balance and would fall as soon as I no longer had solid ground beneath my feet.
I hope that a similar demise will not befall me when I attempt my real post-secondary future.
As I think about my next step in life, my main motivation is to receive a good college education, travel the world, and never compromise my morals.
In retrospect, my fate was sealed the moment I started high school. At the risk of sounding like a gigantic nerd, I adore learning, and I enjoy school for the most part.
I want to learn as much as I can about the world before I undertake any form of a long-term career. Eventually, I want to become a literature teacher, and the best way to learn how to teach is to listen to those who teach.
This year so far has been a full on learning experience for me.
Coming to Central Michigan University, I was unsure about what I wanted to pursue. I thought it would be fun to go into the broadcasting and journalism fields, but as I started to continue classes, I realized it was fun but something I didn’t want to make a life-long career. Both of those are my hobbies -- and don’t get me wrong they could make wonderful careers for someone out there -- but I knew it wasn’t my calling.
This year, my senior year of high school, is going to bring forth many opportunities and blessings that I am looking forward to. Many great things have happened in my high school career already, but this is the year to put all of the things I have learned, seen and experienced together to produce a final result.
So what goals should I have? What can this year give me? Basically, I am looking forward to molding myself into the best person I can be.
I am Rodneshia Bridges, a 17-year-old upcoming senior at Westover Comprehensive High School in Albany, Ga. I also have been working at a local McDonalds since my tenth grade year.
I’m excited to say that this will be my last year in high school, and I’ll be starting a new life in college, leaving the past behind. So far my first couple of senior days were great, but my class work has gotten a little harder, I must say.
I am blessed with logical parents who help me stay on track and keep reminding me of the priorities.
I like school and have done well in it, so I think I would enjoy college also.
An affordable way to make education work for you.
