As I have filed for financial aid and looked through the local community college catalog I've realized that I still have many questions, speeding around, in the race track of my mind. I know that going to college is what I need to be doing, but I'm still fine tuning exactly what I want college to do for me.
I'm not sure what I want to major in, how heavy a case load I want to take, or if online classes would better suit my situation. Really, the only thing that I am sure about is that after classes have been completed, and all tests have been passed, that I want to have the necessary knowledge and the necessary sheet of paper to help my brothers and sister of this very confusing and wounded world. Over the past year I've noticed that there seems to be a lack of people willing to listen. However, the very few who have listened, without sewing in unhealthy advice and opinions have made all the difference. Sometimes the only thing a broken and torn heart needs is a set of ears. I want to be those ears for others someday. I want to return the blessings that I have been given. Maybe I'll be a high school counselor. Maybe I'll be a youth minister. I'm not sure. As I take classes and gain knowledge I'll continue to pray for guidance and direction in choosing a specific major and ultimately a specific career. I know that I have a lot of hard work ahead of me, but I'm certain that the extreme and overwhelming motivation to share the surplus of blessing in my life will carry me far.
How wonderful it would be to have a scholarship aid me in my journey. A scholarship would definitely help numb the sting of financial burden of higher education, but not having one won't kill the motivation that stalks me even when I'm sleeping.
