Being from a small town in Virginia, I have found myself wondering if I had not made certain choices, how would my life be affected now? Negatively or positively?
When I was younger, I was a good student. I was a promising writer, outspoken, and was very passionate about learning. Things sure did change my world once I started high school. I had no long possessed any of those qualities and was on the edge of failing.
Later on, I attended Ashworth’s crap online high school, which, by the way, took me three years to get my diploma. Just recently, I had graduated while trying to get into college. Fortunately, I received my diploma just a few weeks before spring quarter started.
It took a great deal of work just to pass my classes, but I did it. I finished out my first quarter in college with a 3.0. I guess what I am trying to say is, dreams do come true. I never thought that I would be able to attend college. The first thing I had to do was take that one step further to start walking down a path of hard work.
To be honest, the only reason for this account’s existence is because of my drive to want to better myself. As you can see, I am not a very strong writer. I need tons of practice and classes to get me to the correct level that I should have been in if it was not for my bad choices. I would not be where I am today. Once again, it leads back to my question—how have they affected my life now? Negatively or positively?
I am not sure of the answer, but I cannot complain. I have what I have always dreamed about.
