I am on an absolute roll. It may be a bad thing that this sudden burst of motivation is because this is quite the do-or-die situation, but nonetheless I’m proud of myself. My math grade is increasing, I’ve completed almost all of my Graduation portfolio (minus one thing that will be done by tomorrow), and I couldn’t be happier. Like I’ve said before, you have to work for what you want.
I’m going to a college meeting after school today, to get more information and schedule for placement testing. I was going to take a year off, but I found out that the college I’m looking into is relatively close to where my father works, so he might be able to get me a ride. I’d have to figure everything else out, though (when I should go for classes, how to get back, etc). And of course, that will take some time, but you can’t rush things.
Steadily I am becoming the person I’ve always wanted to be. And I now realize that (fir me, at least) I could never become that person without struggle and discipline. I have to want it bad enough. And so do you. Fight for what you want, and the person you want to be. Don’t let anyone or anything stop you. You are your own person with your own thoughts, mindset, and emotions. You control this story. Don’t let someone else star as the main character. And if things don’t go the way you planned? Chin up, deep breath, continue. I believe in you.
