My reasons for college are probably just
like everyone else’s. I went to college because I wanted a better life for
myself. I wanted to find a job that I would not be living paycheck to paycheck
like my parents have to. I mean, who really wants a life like that? I know I
did not want that, and that is why I wanted to go to college, even more than is
the main reason why I wanted to go to college. Another reason was I wanted to
get a better education other than just a High school Diploma. Not many places
would take many serious if they just had a High school Diploma.
My main reason for wanting to go to
college is that I wanted to have a better life. I didn’t want to live my life, paycheck-to-paycheck,
and worrying about weather or not, I am going to have enough money to pay to
keep a roof over my head. My parents never went to college, and while they both
have decent jobs, and make Okay money, its still would be easier for them, if
they had gone to college, but they did not have the opportunity that I did. Not
everyone can go to college to better themselves, but I was a lucky one, and I
am blessed that I am getting a chance to make a better person out of myself, by
going to college. College is important to me. I am the 1st one in my immediate
family to go to college so it’s a big deal to everyone. I just do not want to
let them down.
Another reason why I decided to go to
college was because in my recent experience in trying to find a job I realized
that you employer takes you more seriously if you have more than just a high
school diploma. I don’t want to be working at some fast food joint my life, and
hardly having enough money to support not only myself, but also my family.
Being in college, and getting a degree in whatever my heart desires, will open up
so many doors for me. It would help me get a job that I not only like, but one
that I look forward to going to everyday, and one that will make me feel like I
am actually accomplishing something with my life.
