Why Im Attending College

Im attending Stockton for a few reasons but Im ultimately going to college for
my future. I want to be successful and rich so I can have all the good things in life. I
figure since my rock star career went south, Ill have to hit the books. Im here at
Stockton to attain a degree in business and learn the things I need to become a strong
businessman. I enjoy business and want to continue with it for my career. Id love to be
the CEO of some huge corporation some day. I also want the full college experience
partying, girls, partying... College gives me something to keep me going. Without it I feel
like my job at the car wash is taking me nowhere. I want to be able to have a family
without financial stress and worries. I used to think I was going to be a professional
basketball player but Im to short so that didnt really work out the way I planned it.
Then I thought Id be a professional golfer be Im bored of the sport so I dont want to
play anymore. So finally I decided Id have to study my way out of a middle class family.
I began my college education at a school out in Idaho that I didnt want to be at in
the first place. My parents thought that it would be good for me because it was a church
school and it would keep me out of trouble. Well I thought differently. I didnt want to
be at that school from the beginning, but finally I gave in and agreed to go. I think the
only reason I agreed to go was out of respect for my parents and because a friend from
home was going to room with me. So I guess originally I was going to college for my
parents and my friends. Those are the wrong reasons to be going across country to a
school. I didnt want to be going that far in the first place. Our trip took a total of four
days on the road. I believe that was the best part. When I got to school I was miserable.
I had absolutely no interest in meeting people or having a good time I just wanted to go
home and be out of that foreign environment. I t seemed like the worst month of my life.
Its obvious to see that I didnt make it through that first semester out at Ricks college. It
was so bad for me that I had enough and withdrew from school.
When I got home, needless to say, my parents were quite upset with me. What I
was most worried about was raising the money to pay for tuition myself. That was the
rule if I didnt go to a church school I had to pay my own tuition. So I got a job
immediately when I got home so I could get the money together in time. It wasnt easy
but Im here attending Stockton. I can say Ive worked hard to get here and I dont plan
on wasting it. Its going to be easy for me to work hard in school because Im the one
whos paying for it. Im always doing something now whether it be school or work or
going out, because it cant be all work with no play now can it. Besides, I like to go out
as much as possible.
When I get older I want to have a family without the stress of financial barricades.
My entire life my parents have been working two or three jobs each just to make ends
meet. Thats not where I want to be with my future. I want a sense of comfort that no
matter what happens Ill have the money to take care of it. I dont exactly need a
luxurious lifestyle, but Id like to partake in a life of nicer cars, extravagant home, and
cash in the bank. So after all I guess I would like to have a few dollars. I know that if I
want my family to have this comfort then Ill have to plan now and stick to my plan so I
can make money right away and begin to invest to insure my children with a college
education of their choice. Its often hard
