Many people have visions about what their life with be like when they are at an older age, and what they are going to do with it once they get to that point. As children we all thought we would become a doctor of some kind, or a fireman, so if we were dreamers we would dream of fame and fortune. For me, I was unsure then and I still am mostly unsure today. Of course, dreams of fame and fortune still dance around in my head, I am mostly smart enough to realize that I will have to work towards that for a long time. Events in my life have shaped me into who I am today, and will more then likely guide me to be the person who I will turn into tomorrow. These events will allow me to discover who I am and who I want to be, and eventually they will lead me to discovering all of my goals that I want to achieve in life
After high school I plan on attending Grand Rapids Community College. I choose Grand Rapid Community College not just because it was less expensive then a University, but because they offer a program for the career path that I have chosen to pursue. This particular Community College offers a three year program in training to become an Occupational Therapy Assistant. In order to pay for those three years at the college I will take on at least one part time job where I will place at least seventy five percent of my check in a bank account which will go towards college. This schooling will cost around twenty thousand dollars when I am finished. I am confident that I will be able to achieve my goal at Grand Rapids Community College because of my family that will help support me through those three years. I plan on living with my parents until I am at least twenty, that way I know I will have a welcoming support system to fall back on if all else fails. Although I know I will be able to have both money and time to finish my degree.
My short term goal in life is to obtain a job after graduation and be able to pay for my schooling. At least three days out of the week I will be transporting myself to Grand Rapids Community College where I will take my classes. My housing plans will continue to stay as they are at this point in my life, I plan on staying at home and living with my parents. Those housing plans will stay put until I am able to financially support myself, in all honesty I plan on living with my parents until the age of at least twenty. After which I will do my best of obtain an apartment closer to the college which will allow me to cut the cost of gas virtually in half.
My long term plan in life is to go to Grand Rapids Community College. There I will attend a three year program which will allow me to become an Occupational Therapy Assistant, where I will have a chance to work at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital. By having a profession in that field I will still be able to help people, I will be able to bring a smile back onto their faces. An Occupational Therapist is someone who helps a patient get back onto their feet...
